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.
kpmgaccountant: excell1 I hope you have heeded the warnings here. The lack of clarification from the BOD given the terminal decline in share price tells all. Next week the share price decline will be brutal. Big shorts have made so much money and have enough stock to dump to drive the share price to oblivion.

debsdowner: clocktower: Chambers clocktower 5 Oct '18 - 12:15 - 13740 of 13770 0 0 0 The upward trend continues as expected. … After your comment at 12.15pm the share price declined significantly, the share price all over the place from 9 towards 10 all week your argument about a trend upwards is way out. Day traders are shifting the share price lately and its blatantly obvious. Both the long terms medium terms and short terms ( 1 week) all show a decline, I haven't posted before today the posts bizarre. Niggle and Owenski and I maintained the correct analysis so far, this company has further to fall all some of the posters are doing is playing their own book for a hopefully quick gain. Day traders punt now and not many will want to be locked in overnight just in case they have a shock the following morning and the marker makers mark down significantly the night before. It will all depend on the volume of trades and what is on the books.
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.
ckafetz: Debenhams is facing a battle to hold on to the proceeds from a rescue ­fundraising, introducing fresh fears about its future. The retailer is hoping to generate as much as £200m from the sale of Danish department store Magasin du Nord to prop up its ailing finances but any deal is expected to face stiff opposition. Restructuring experts said lenders and landlords are likely to demand a big chunk of any proceeds as they look to cut their exposure to the struggling retailer. Meanwhile, it has been ­reported that Mike Ashley may seek to block the disposal of Magasin du Nord. Without a cash injection, Debenhams faces a bleak future. Its share price has sunk two-thirds to less than 12p after a string of profit warnings, and management have been forced to renegotiate its banking covenants. The chain’s hopes now rest largely with finding a buyer for Magasins du Nord, which it bought for just £12m nearly a decade ago. However, a deal will require the approval of more than 50pc of Debenhams shareholders because of its sheer size. Although Ashley would be unable to block the sale, he will have ­considerable sway over whether it goes ahead, having amassed a 30pc stake in Debenhams through Sports Direct. Any attempt to scupper the rescue attempts will stoke fresh controversy about Ashley’s involvement in Debenhams. Last week, Sports Direct was ordered to clarify that it wasn’t weighing a takeover bid for its rival after a non-executive said the board had studied a combination of the two. It comes after The Sunday Telegraph revealed that KPMG has been drafted in to help draw up survival plans. Debenhams was forced to rush out a surprise trading update to calm fears after its shares plunged following the report. ­However, its share price ended down 10.2pc at an all-time low of 11.5p. Property sources said landlords are unlikely to approve a CVA without a significant one-off payment. Lenders may also demand a share of any cash raised. It has more than £300m of bank debt, and nearly £200m in bonds, all of it unsecured, leaving creditors badly exposed. Annual profits are expected to be just £33m this year, compared to £139m five years ago. Debenhams declined to comment. Sports Direct said it would consider any offer for Magasin du Nord “on its merits”.
knigel: Only Who? Look at the chart further back. Between 2010 and 2015 the share price moves up and down within a 50p to £1 range. It's been the last two years we have seen the share price slide to historic lows. So not quite "years". Even I know any share price recovery could take years. So many risks for all (!) sectors at the moment pre Brexit. Also risk of dilution and downgrades. However I personally think a lot of the risks are already factored in and shorters have worked overtime to get the share price as low as possible. Obviously profit warnings have not helped. I will read the next results with great (neutral) interest.
odeysmells: Mike Ashley will buy Debenhams and give landlords a choice- transfer your lease to the newly created House of Debenhams entity or stay in the Debenhams entity which I'll wind down. He has used that trick before - check out Heatons in Ireland. With the share price where it is, it is a no brainer to act very soon. The longer he leaves it the price will be higher as Debenhams' performance improves because House of Fraser is no longer a force. That's 10% market share up for grabs. John Lewis retail figures shows the impact. Debenhams has confirmed it in their recent performance. Will it be a hostile takeover?
