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.
vulcan2: Sorry, the DEB share price is UP 16% - moving so fast. Wait till the shorter start closing then it will really move.
goldpiguk: Hi, I occasionally look in on this board to see how things are. Watching from the sidelines gives a wonderful insight into the way investors react when invested in endangered companies. I have half convinced myself that Qantas must have a faulty Ipad and is in fact sitting 24/7 in front of an upside screen that failed to right itself. For him the share price is always 'hammering up'. In reality, the share price has just continued its long downtrend and is now rather lower than a few weeks ago. Anyone looking to profit in Debenhams should be thinking of a slightly less dangerous route which could give good potential upside - the 5.25% bonds. ISIN XS108972850, SEDOL BNLPY79. £225 million were issued in 2014 and they mature in July 2021 at par. The bond pays out twice a year on 15th January and 15th July. At close of business on Friday they stood at 70.38 so currently yield about 7%. Holders of the bonds rank above shareholders should the company fail, which is why professional investors have been buyers of the bonds. It is not all doom and gloom for Debenhams shareholders (owners). The budget might be helpful; selling the overseas business should raise much-needed cash; the financial situation might not be quite as dire as some people claim. A relief rally is possible in the short term. One thing is very obvious - Debenhams faces a battle for survival in its current form. Those here who are part owners of the company should not expect dividends, but are more likely to face calls to stump up more cash along the way to help their company meet its financial obligations. Even with a 7% annual payout on the bonds and about 40% capital appreciation in under three years, I am not yet tempted to take a bite into this pie. Even bondholders don't always get their money back. Goldpig
excell1: A post from another board. Grateful to them. Over last two years the decline in DEB's stock price has been unrelenting - from 75p in January 2016 to 9p now. Yet there are more DEB stores around, and their financials looked under control from what I have seen before. Management is even more cautious then before, but even they must be frustrated with the share price. Having said that I believe there are some very positive things on the horizon: a. The Government is about to bring in measures rebalancing the internet sellers towards the shopping streets. That must be ultra positive for large operators like DEB. b. Clothing sales at ASOS, Selfridges, Harrods etc are remarkably resilient, I believe DEB's are holding up as well. c. New store layouts and store overhauls are bearing fruit. d. Reasonable chance that DEB's considers putting the dividend payment into a share buyback programme. e. This stock is so badly oversold since 2016 that you could be forgiven for thinking it was going bust. It reminds me of ASDA which used to be listed on the LSE and collapsed at one stage to just 22p - not long after that it had recovered to 75p range - that hurt a lot of shorters at the time. Market tends to oversell, and then wrongly price stocks. There is a negative focus on stocks as it seems far easier to short a stock than to long it. However, we are well due a positive statement next week. f. I understand that DEB have sorted out their credit insurance issue, so for me that was the prime issue overhanging the stock and putting me off before, now I am happy to invest [as are clearly Schroders, Brandes etc.]. When this gets better understood, I expect the price to increase substantially, but it does seem like there was a wide measure of misunderstanding about insurance on here previously. Not sure if there will be any comment confirming same in the update next week, as insurance is often not mentioned in updates. g. DEB BOD know that MA is looking at them and if they want to keep their jobs, unlike the HOF board, they need to now perform and be seen to perform. So I expect a pretty bullish update next week. h. MA is only unable to bid for six months. Each day we get nearer that six month limit - which is in March. I expect the price to inevitably rally as we approach that period. If DEB does have a good Xmas, and the share price has still not materially recovered, then the board are toast in March. Therefore I rate this a strong buy currently.
