The Q.C. (whatever that stands for - Queen's Counsel seems implausible) seems surprisingly silent today. I felt sure he would want to tell us - at least three times - about the Carpetright profits warn with UK trading hit by lower customer footfall and a "significant deterioration in UK trading during the important post-Christmas trading period". Bound to read across to Debenhams, surely. Perhaps he is unwell. I mean, flu or some other physical ailment. If so, there you are Simon, all done for you, and I trust you will get well soon!

does anyone know if there is anything to stop the company selling off its international arm, to stave off the inevitable? it looks like this is profitable, and stable enough, to have a value, which will allow the main UK operation to bat on a while longer... thoughts?

Just out from Moodys. Looks like a rehash of Mondays downgrade being sent out again to peoples email boxes. » Debenhams’ weak Christmas results are credit negative Debenhams’ weak Christmas results are credit negative Last Thursday, UK department store Debenhams plc (B1 stable) reported negative sales growth for the 17- week period that ended 30 December 2017, and warned that its profit before tax for fiscal 2018, which ends September 2018, would be down from year-earlier levels. The announcement is credit negative for Debenhams, and prompted us on Monday to downgrade the company’s long-term rating to B1 from Ba3. The company said that organic like-for-like sales in constant currency declined by 1.8%, with UK like-for-like sales falling 2.6%, while international like-for-like sales rose 2.1%. The company also said that its gross margin in the first half of fiscal 2018 will decline by 150 basis points owing to ongoing pressure on full-price sales because of the amount of discounts and weaker-than-expected demand. As a result, Debenhams’ profit before tax for fiscal 2018 will be £55-£65 million, with the midpoint implying a decline of around 37% versus fiscal 2017, which ended 2 September 2017. Our downgrade reflects our view that Debenhams’ Moody’s-adjusted debt to EBITDA will increase toward 6.4x in fiscal 2018 from 5.7x as of September 2017, a result of a combination of lower EBITDA and marginally higher debt arising from high capital investments. The downgrade also reflects the increased execution risk behind a strategy announced in April 2017, prompted by the ongoing difficulty of UK trading conditions. Under the new strategy, the company aims to enhance growth and profitability by improving the shopping experience with a combination of better product and brand diversification and stronger customer service. On a positive note, the company has reported digital sales growth, stronger contributions from its new store format, and positive sales growth internationally, all of which have partially offset the negative pressure on UK full-price sales. Additionally, although we expect free cash flow generation to turn negative in fiscal 2018, we understand that the company has some capacity to reduce or postpone some of its capital expenditures or to curtail dividends. Debenhams is the UK’s largest department store group by number of stores (166 in fiscal 2017), and operates internationally through 11 stores in the Republic of Ireland, six owned stores in Denmark (which trade as Magasin du Nord), 63 franchise stores in more than 20 countries that are owned and operated by local partners, and international online sales. Debenhams has a large and broad customer base, with more than 19 million customers a year.

It is complete rubbish to suggest shorting contributed to Carillion's problems. It wasn't shorting that caused the share price to crash 90%, it was a profit warning. It's been common knowledge in the construction industry for some years they were bidding at very close to breakeven prices on projects, so there was no margin for error. That's why the shorters got involved! As for Debs it's a tricky one because what would be the impact if Mike Ashley or should I correctly say Sports Direct have to divest their holding??? 21% will have a big impact.

I agree shorting does cause a major problem. In actual fact I happen to feel the directors buying here is only to try and boost confidence in shareholders rather than confidence in the company. They know the lower the share price the harder it is to raise money and lower share price means lower share pricing and more dilution. The shorters cannot lose if they stick in their.

srpactive, Yes but too much borrowing and Interfere all at risk. Billions of borrowings out there and some has just disappeared! That money has gone out of the economy. NHS in a mess the government considering more tax all equals less money to spend in retail. Its all affecting the economy money does not grow on trees.
