this company is unfortunately a poster boy for appalling capital management decisions...average price paid for stock buybacks in some cases double current price...meanwhile debt balloons ...bunch of idiots in charge...heads need to roll here.

Reasonably positive all things considered:-

Interim Trading Update

Good start to the winter sale trading period

Profit guidance reiterated

DFS Furniture plc, the market leading retailer of living room and upholstered furniture in the United Kingdom, today announces a trading update for the twenty six week financial reporting period to 25 December 2022, together with an update on recent trading.


-- +10.6% order intake growth* relative to the FY19 pre pandemic period
-- Strong second quarter performance supported by further market share gains
-- Good start to the important winter sale trading period
-- Reiterate our mid case profit guidance of GBP36m profit before tax and brand amortisation (range GBP30m-GBP40m)

Trading overview

Group order intake for the period* was +10.6% compared to the pre pandemic FY19 period (-4.8% Vs FY22).

Following low market wide demand levels at the start of the financial year, trading improved in the second quarter* with order intake growth relative to FY19 increasing to +16.3% (+18.8% Vs FY22). We continue to observe further market share gains based on our proprietary Barclaycard data set.

Group gross sales, which are recognised on delivery of orders to customers, are up +9.6% on the FY19 comparator period (-1.1% Vs FY22).


Current order intake performance remains strong, with the important winter sale trading period starting well. Whilst the macroeconomic and consumer outlook remains hard to predict, our mid case FY23 guidance remains unchanged at GBP36m profit before tax and brand amortisation, with the range narrowing to GBP30m-GBP40m.

This assumes the improved momentum we have seen in order intake continues through the second half, alongside delivery of planned margin improvements and normalisation of the order bank which remains elevated at the end of the first half due to the weighting of order intake. Profit delivery will be second half weighted with first half profits expected to be in mid-single digit GBP millions.

We remain committed to our strategy to lead furniture retailing in the digital age. Our scale, trusted brands, innovation, final mile two-man logistics platform, digital capabilities and integrated retail strategy give us significant advantages in our market and will allow us to maintain our track record of market share gains whilst driving attractive returns for our shareholders.

The Group will announce its interim results for the period ending 25 December 2022 on 16 March 2023.

Comment from Tim Stacey, Group Chief Executive

"The Group has traded well through the second quarter and the start of the important winter sale trading period. Whilst the macroeconomic environment remains challenging and hard to predict, we reiterate our full year profit guidance supported by the positive current trading momentum.

As always, we continue to invest for the long term success of the business, to further strengthen our market leading position and with our established platforms, scale and expertise we believe we are well set up for growth over the medium term"

*Order intake growth for the period calculated using weeks 1-25 of the financial period (and for the second quarter using weeks 14-25) to remove the impact of the different number of days in each financial year falling into the post Christmas sale trading period. International and Sofa Workshop have been excluded from the order intake and gross sales growth calculations given the closure of these operations.

DFS have lost all their top sales people so thats why profits and sales are down. The big bosses won't release that to the city though.Dont invest in this company they're dishonest.

Sizable increase in holding...

"The Board therefore proposes to pay a final dividend for FY22 of 3.7 pence per share (FY21: 7.5 pence per share), alongside extending the currently ongoing GBP25m share buyback by a further GBP10m. This will still position our trailing dividend yield at 5.6%, while taking advantage of the significant returns implied by a share buyback." Less divi, more buybacks. Makes sense while the share price is low as long as a recession doesn't bankrupt them.

Some pretty interesting holdings announced today IMO. Culminating in this from DFS:-

HOWEVER, just a "passive crossing" due to the share buyback, so nothing really to see here...

In amongst the CFO leaving RNS:-


...is this little nugget:-

Further to recent our Trading update and the successful completion of expected deliveries to our customers prior to year-end we now expect profitability to be in the upper half of the range for underlying profit before tax and brand amortisation previously indicated.*

Ian Durant, Chair of DFS, commented: "I would like to thank Mike for his leadership as CFO. He has helped to navigate DFS through a period of significant challenge, including the impact of COVID-19, and leaves a resilient business well placed to grow in the UK.
