Patviera, You may be interested in the AIM document that FW Thorpe recently issued - they are transferring to AIM in January. http://www.fwthorpe.co.uk/pdfs/F.W.Thorpe_PLC_circular_20051109.pdf

Yes, WJCCGHCC. You're right - just short of £19mill, that's including your A shares of course. I guess the market cap in ADVFN is just based on the voting share class.

The mkt cap on advfn is wrong (as is quite often the case). I think it's nearer 19mm.

patviera - I know, that's why I have invested with them. Things can always go wrong though ;) Their cash holding and short term deposits is much higher than 35%, very close to the market cap..... Do you hold too?

Thanks, Perhaps when they move to AIM they may have to re-appraise the share structure, although I doubt there's any reason to. Personally I like the solidity, yield. If the share structure doesn't interfer then I'm happy. Only concern I have is that a move to AIM is usually to raise money - more equity issue thus diluting current holdings. Cheers WJCCGHCC & goodluck.

Nothing specific. I just find it can complicate things and I prefer transparency. Also, with a company this size, why have two separate securities when you could combine them and increase the liquidity?

That's OK WJCCGHCC. Why do you see dual listing as an issue, just curious....? I'm not ramping here, it's just easier to examine the news,charts etc. and for me to keep an ongoing list. Goodluck with your investments.

Thanks insipiens. I don't do dual structures. Good luck with it.

WJCCGHCC, Those are the non-voting A shares , so yes a dual share structure. The main holder of these (last year's annual accounts) was HSBC in a nominated a/c - other holders appear to be family members mainly not directly involved in the business. The directors mainly hold the voting shares, although 3 have part holding in A shares.

EV to cashflow looks interesting but what is DWHA versus DWHT? Do they have a dual share structure?

On dividends: Tax and Dividends The current tax charge for the year rose to #1,193,000 (34.2%) from #1,141,000 (34.2%) an increase of #52,000. Although there is no movement in the effective tax rate, #29,000 of the increase in tax charge relates to a prior years adjustment. The proposed total dividend of 4.89p per share, up 5.2% against last year's 4.65p, is covered 4.6 times by earnings. Shareholders' funds improved from #13.2 million to #15.7 million. There was no reduction of shares during the year

So it will be listing on Aim then, also profit up on reduced inventory, strong cash flow - sounds like a well managed business: Dewhurst sees acquisitions as path to growth; FY pretax up 4.6 pct LONDON (AFX) - Dewhurst PLC said that in the current environment the group's most significant prospect for growth is with acquisitions and it continues to actively search for such investment opportunities. The comments came alongside results for the year to Sept 30 2005 which showed a 4.6 pct increase in pretax profit to 3.5 mln stg, primarily achieved through the effect of the acquisition of Lift Material in Australia together with increased interest earned on higher cash balances. Sales for the year were up 2.5 pct to 30.0 mln stg. Dewhurst said its strong cash flow has been one of the encouraging aspects of the year's performance. It has been accomplished, in part, by improving the reliability of deliveries and working with suppliers to reduce stock levels. Spurred by falling prices, the group said it has achieved significant efficiency improvements in recent years and has established cheaper sources of component supplies. However, as it continues to look for further gains in these areas it is now reaching the point where the savings are harder to find and less valuable. At the same time, costs are rising in a number of areas, particularly those related to oil such as energy and plastics, the board noted. It is this which is pushing the group towards bolt-on acquisitions to achieve progress. Dewhurst also announced today that it plans to move its listing to AIM. newsdesk@afxnews.com

Hi Craig Strange, yet they marked it down first thing on results, fingers crossed! Apologies to everyone else, but off topic, have you seen CFT statement today? A bit of profit taking set in now, hopefully it will move a touch lower, that will be anothr one for the bottom draw!
