debsdowner: Two articles which highlight a deteriorating economy on business live. The housing market to slow down and Philips to close down a factory with the loss of 430 jobs blamed on Brexit warnings: 6:05 Philips to close UK plant with 430 jobs "Electronics giant Philips is closing a plant in Glemsford, Suffolk putting 430 jobs at risk. The operations will be transferred to the Netherlands. The factory makes baby feeding products under the Avent brand. Philips said the closure is part of a plan to reduce the number of plants it operates from 50 to 30. Last year, the company's chief executive voiced concern about the impact of Brexit on the UK economy." 16:02 Housing market outlook worst 'for 20 years' "The housing market outlook over the next three months is the worst for 20 years, surveyors say. A net balance of 28% of Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) members expect sales to fall in the next three months. It's the most downbeat reading since records started in October 1998 and the pessimism is blamed on the lack of clarity around Brexit. Lack of supply and affordability also continued to affect the market. Article share tools" Https:// Comment: Clarks announced a factory closure yesterday, unemployment has been low but expected to rise this year, those in work will be reluctant to spend or tighten their spending. The problem with Debtenhams is its a mid market retailer and as such hasn't gotten the brand immge of Selfridges or John Lewis despite claims by the CEO to get rid of dated brands its not happened as yet. Its dated brands overpriced and it probably sells little at full price then has to discount at up to 70% or even more to shift stock. I would have expected the company to have announced the financial reorganisation and funding by now but the low share price means a rights issue probably out it would have to be discounted at about 1 pence and heavily dilute present shareholders furthermore its pointless without a CVA. The CVA neds to be done first otherwise any fundraise will not get any takers. The longer the matter takes the worst the situation will be as rent, rates, stock need funding. If the company doesn't hurry up administration could come instead. However whatever happens there will be little to no value for present shareholders and surprised the share price is not trading between 1 to 2 pence at the moment, 2 pence is to high imo despite two brokers have that as a target price.
9stars: News Moody's Changes Debenhams Outlook To Negative Amid Risks For Creditors LONDON (Alliance News) - Moody's Investors Service on Wednesday changed Debenhams PLC's outlook ... Alliance News17 January, 2019 | 6:58AM LONDON (Alliance News) - Moody's Investors Service on Wednesday changed Debenhams PLC's outlook to negative from stable as it believes creditors may incur risks lending to the struggling department store chain. Moody's affirmed Debenhams Caa1 corporate family rating, Caa1-PD probability of default rating and Caa1 rating on the GBP200 million loan notes due 2021. "Today's change in outlook reflects our view that there is a risk that refinancing negotiations may not result in a timely and cost effective solution and thus the process could ultimately culminate in losses for financial creditors," David Beadle, a Moody's vice president and lead analyst for Debenhams, said. "However, notwithstanding this and the company's elevated leverage we continue to view Debenhams liquidity profile as adequate for the time being," he added. Last week, alongside its Christmas trading sale figures, Debenhams said it entered talks with lenders regarding refinancing of GBP320 million loan notes due to mature in 2020. The retailer said "constructive" talks have begun with lenders, and options include bringing new sources of funding. Meanwhile, its sales continued to decline in the 18-week period to January 5, with like-for-like sales down 5.7%. The rating agency on Wednesday added that it believes Debenhams' prospects of "access to fresh capital" to have been hindered by the significant fall its share price, down 89% in the last year. However, Moody's explained that in the event of a successful refinancing the outlook on Debenhams would be upgraded again. By Elena Cherubini
h2owater: Shares in troubled department store Debenhams slipped three per cent today ahead of a trading update on Thursday when it will reveal how it fared over Christmas.The retailer, which has its annual general meeting on Thursday, has seen its share price tank this year, falling from 30p 12 months ago to just 5.5p today.There was speculation that Debenhams may issue a profit warning over the Christmas period and the fact it has not done so is one glimmer of light amid an otherwise murky outlook.Russ Mould, investment director at broker AJ Bell said: "The good news is they haven't dished out a profit warning. Although retail has been tough, it has not been quite as terrible as people thought."Patrick O'Brien, retail analyst at Global Data said it was "good that they seem to have avoided that [a profit warning], but it doesn't necessarily mean that they are going to announce any particularly great news."'Brien said results from other retailers suggest trading picked up in the second half of December, which may augur well for Debenhams.Last week Next trimmed full-year profit guidance but increased sales, belying dire predictions for Christmas trading in the sector.Today Dunelm shares climbed nearly 13 per cent on a strong trading update with revenue growing two per cent over the Christmas period.Tom Musson, an analyst at broker Liberum, said Dunelm's results "could be positive for Debenhams' top line at least where gifting, health and beauty are important categories... which seem to have performed strongly".The department store chain's longer term outlook is still tricky with issues including expensive long-term leases, a historic lack of investment and years of falling like-for-like sales.O'Brien said: "Really that is the problem. It has so many long leases with fixed costs and sales that have been consistently falling in stores."
h2owater: “The hedge funds should have had a great last two months, given the way that share prices tumbled against a backdrop of bad news from the High Street, so they should be sitting on big profits on paper,” Nick Bubb, an independent retail analyst, told Yahoo Finance UK. However, he said investors betting against share price falls this week may be disappointed. Last week, department John Lewis reported strong Christmas sales and Next surprised the City with better than expected festive trading figures. Next (NXT.L) shares jumped on the news, likely hurting hedge funds such as Lone Pine Capital and Tiger Global who had shorted the company. M&S and Debenhams are forecast by city analysts to report poor Christmas trading but Bubb said this may already be priced in to their share prices. “The shorts will be disappointed that the struggling Debenhams and M&S haven’t had to come forward with early profit warnings, implying that Christmas trading was no worse than expected,” he said. “I suspect that the shorts will have to suffer some short term pain over the next week, but there is probably no reason to panic, given the impact on consumer confidence of Brexit uncertainty over the next few months.”
goldpiguk: Hi, This Debenhams board if nothing else provides a little entertainment. After reading a few posts you realise debate here is not so very different from the entrenched positions taken in Parliament over Brexit. For one lot Brexit is a total disaster, for another Brexit is blue skies ahead, if not yet, eventually. Of course neither side is likely to be 100% correct. In truth how can anyone really know what will happen? Behind the emotionally charged pronouncements some facts are twisted, other ignored or simply overlooked, and some facts are even dismissed as 'fake news' leaving many observers totally bemused. Like Brexit, Debenhams is nearing its endgame. We all know and recognise the High Street is in decline. Debenhams itself now openly talks about the need for a 'broader refinancing process'. My belief is the company will survive in some form, but that does not mean before current private shareholders are nearly wiped out. Mike Ashley's offer of a £40 million interest free loan was not made for charitable purposes but by a shrewd businessman trying to protect and build on the near 30% stake he already has in the company. Many types of refinancing involve substantial dilution for shareholders and a huge rights issue could be on the cards as a last ditch attempt to save the company. Quantas has always predicted a much higher share price and in the short term he may well be proved right after any fundraising and a large share consolidation. Debenhams acknowledges things cannot go on as they are. What will be interesting is if current management can find a formula to make their remaining shops financially viable going forwards. Mike Ashley clearly believes he can, possibly by combining Debenhams with HOF, shutting most stores, bringing in self service checkouts cutting 1,000's of jobs and moving upmarket Existing shareholders here should be of a generous disposition, have deep pockets and recognise they are participants in a high stakes poker game at Mike Ashley's table. Being the season of Goodwill I wish all posters here a very Happy Christmas and New Year. Goldpig
debsdowner: The TMF asks whether Christmas will improve Marks share price and at the same time blasts Debtenhams out of the water yet again: "at least M&S isn’t struggling as badly as Debenhams, and is far from the dire straits that led to the bust of House of Fraser." HTTPs:// Debtenhams still hammering down and it can only get worse, there is no value in the share price due to debt low margins and the billions of leases.
vulcan2: here are some desperate shorters here constantly putting up negative messages. The facts are:- - that DEB NOT closing down as shorters were predicting - DEB is still a profit making business. - Most of the DEB stores are profit making only a few loss making. - DEB are going to continue as a business. - have a plan to improve income and reduce costs. - have an international presence (a number of countries outside UK) - Net debt was in line with previous guidance at GBP321.3m, giving the Group significant headroom on its committed GBP520m financing facilities - DEB has a double digit growth in their online business. - They are/will sell their Magasin du Nord in Denmark at premium (£200 mil+) because it has actually shown more growth than anticipated, even in these difficult markets. - Going forward DEBs will do better because of reduced competition. Next set of results will confirm this. - the store closures are over 3 to 5 years. They MAY close them - not definite. - The CEO just purchased £90,000 shares @8p+ The Share Price should RISE ! Please do your own research
woodsman2004: @vulcan posts. For a bit of fun................ 23rd July "Double bottom - should see a push up from here" 10th August "DEB Share price should go up." 13th August "Looks like it is about to lift off like a rocket!" 15th August "shorters are starting to run from DEBs. This should keep going up." 17th August "When the dust settles I think DEBs could be king of the High Street. With most of the competition gone or greatly reduced, with international presence as well as Online presence. It is still a profit making business." 10th Sept "Remember DEBENHAMS is a PROFIT making organisation - despite the challenging market conditions. With competition down PROFITS will INCREASE." etc etc etc etc etc :)
discodave4: excellFrom the SPD finals (to 29th April) they state that they have taken a £85.4m hit from the Debenhams investment.Going in their 29.7% holding and the fact that the share price has fallen 14p since the 29th April then that would mean they are sitting on a paper loss of about £140m. That said I thought I read somewhere recently that it was more like £250m - May have that wrong though.From the £140m paper loss at current share price then I will leave it to you to work out SPD's average share price.DYORDD
excell1: From T'other board When one-off charges are taken out, Debenhams still made a full-year trading profit of £33m and it is beginning to implement the changes it needs in order to survive. The decision to cut so many stores and staff is a painful but necessary one, says Richard Lim, chief executive of consultancy firm Retail Economics. “Department stores are incredibly expensive to run,” he says, pointing out that almost half of a retailers’ costs are related to labour, making it difficult to compete with online rivals. By shutting 50 stores, Debenhams is starting to solve one of its biggest problems: It has been locked into a large number of expensive leases. Its average lease has about 20 years to run, with many of them signed during rapid expansion when it was under private equity control between 2003 and 2006. (Anyone looking at a time horizon beyond the point of personally cashing out in three years would surely have been more prudent – After all, it’s not as if the internet didn’t exist in 2006.) Getting rid of 50 of those leases removes a huge burden and frees up money to invest in improvements, one of which should be distinctive own brands, says Lim Read more What went wrong for Debenhams and how can it turn things around? Debenhams share price plunges as retailer seeks restructuring plan Debenhams to cut 90 staff as it enters new round of redundancy talks Mike Ashley’s House of Fraser deal boosts Debenhams with merger hopes Trans woman ‘treated like a freak’ in Debenhams changing rooms The saga with PG and MA ha Another positive for Debenhams is the move it has made to give people more reasons to come in and shop. And with 240 years of history behind them since 1778 you can't imagine they'll close, and imo they won't. They'll come back stronger than ever ! Thereb is still room for some stores to cater for in-store shopping and DEBS is still the place where shoppers love to go offering something that Amazon and others can’t.
