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
debsdowner: niggle it is odd: CFO Award of 0.01p option under the Debenhams plc Performance Share Plan. In light of the fall in share price since awards were last granted, the award to the CFO is based on 67% of salary rather than 100% of salary. This is to strike an appropriate balance between addressing the share price fall and guarding against the potential for windfall gains and the need to motivate to deliver the long-term plans in a challenging environment. -------------------------- ------------------------------------------ c) Price(s) and volume(s) Price(s) Number of shares under award n/a 3,327,262 -----------------
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.
vulcan2: There 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 profit making business. - 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) - 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 growth, even in these difficult markets. - Going forward DEBs will do better because of reduced competition. Next set of results will confirm this. Shorters , who were hoping for bad news, were totally disappointed and will have to close their shorts (and maybe even clean them - lol!) once the news has been digested and buyers move back in the Share Price should RISE !
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.

debsdowner: Sales come earlier and earlier not even bonfire night and Tesco slash toys to half price hoping to grab what cash consumer have to beat the competition. HTTPs:// This Christmas is going to the most competitive for many a year, many more retailers will hit the wall in January. The market doesn't think Debenhams will even get to January evidence of that is the penny share price. Bucher looks like he will be the one that gets the CHOP before they even think of a Gold clock! Debenhams potential RNS: Debenhams which used to be one of the largest and most profitable department stores, has today announced the CEO Mr Bucher has been removed without prior warning. In effect he has got the CHOP. The board of Debenhams has not yet found a replacement for the CEO as the banks have just informed us today that our loans have been requested to be paid back on demand. One of the reasons for the banks unfortunate decision to call in their loan is sales are still in decline and margins are falling. The board estimates that the company will miss profit forecasts yet again and the board also feels that losses will incur. The other directors are of the view, that with the long leases, and suppliers credit removal, and the suppliers demanding money up front, the company has had no alternative but suspend the share price and to place the company in administration. With the company having billions of leases on its balance sheet its unlikely the company will have any money left for shareholders they being at the end of soup kitchen.
debsdowner: One thing you are right about bouka1 Debenhams is being attacked from every angle. 1-The city don't like Debenhams the knifes are out most brokers negative due to background history, missed expectations and very poor fundamentals. 2-The press pushing the knives in deeper, forums posters turn the knives as well to deepen the pain and anguish and prepare a coffin for Debenhams demise. 3.Both the press city and majority of forums already arranging a funeral and when you look at the situation its no different from preparations in place for the demise of Prince Philip they know it will happen sooner or later, the funeral plans already in place. 4-Bucher will be most worried now, more Insurers cut off credit regardless of his comments suppliers will be worried they may not be paid and will want money up front if they have sense having lost out with the demise of House of Fraser. 5-Bucher will be under serious strain with the potential sale of Madasin Du Nord, they will not want to sell before Christmas. 6. There are now three possibilities the first a fire sale of Madasin d Ord to get cash in quick but shareholder approval needed on a sale so I don't think that will happen. The second option is a CVA and the third option is an urgent placing at massive dilution. Conclusion: With a possibility of a fire sale of Madasi and the most profitable part the company gone the share price will collapse the other part the company not worth a light. A CVA will probably cause a further collapse in share price. An emergency placing wold have to be priced at less than 5 pence and maybe even lower to entice buyers even so wold not raise much. The writing now written on the wall this company is finished imo investors are foolish buying now.
