Ive been to the last two AGMs and the shareholder apathy was something to behold. Not too long ago this company was making a healthy profit with millions in the bank. Not content with that,this expansion,or vanity project,at huge cost,has gained nothing for the shareholder, but the remuneration committee have been kept busy with directors salary increases.One big gravy train! Next thing I suspect will be some resignations, or as in the case of the previous Fd big golden goodbyes.GLA

The company's extraordinary ability to burn cash - identified in #2766 - continues. Net debt end June -£8m, from -£4.2m end Oct 14, having had £15m net cash at the beginning of 2013! This sounds not too good either - "The Group has a four-year £25.0m Revolving Credit Facility with HSBC with the option to borrow a further £25.0m under an accordion feature. As at 30 June 2015 there was £13.5m drawn against the facility..." Are these guys Greek?!

I suggest you listen to the presentation. The new CEO is candid about what he has found and what direction they are taking. It is clear that overheads have got out of control and he has a plan for dealing with this. Strategic review due in October.

Not sure what to do with these results... on the plus side - sort of - it feels like a lot of kitchen-sinking is going on here (e.g. they sold an extra £10m of product at a direct cost of £11m... plus extra costs of £4m in admin and distribution). On the negative side - it is one big jump from a profit warning to these results... I don't feel I can trust these guys at all...

Largest share holder forces appointment of a new non exec director. Message received - They are very worried and have too large a shareholding to exit. Not sure how much the new man can bring to the table. "Dialight plc, a global leader in LED lighting for industrial, obstruction and other highly-specified applications, is pleased to announce the appointment of David Blood as a Non-Executive Director with immediate effect. David Blood is the Senior Partner at Generation Investment Management LLP ("Generation"), a London-based investment firm he co-founded in 2004. Prior to co-founding Generation, David spent almost two decades at Goldman Sachs in a number of senior executive roles including Chief Executive Officer of Goldman Sachs Asset Management. Generation takes a long-term approach to investing, integrating sustainability research into its investment process, and is Dialight's largest shareholder with a current holding representing 16.5% of the company's share capital." A financial man and asset manager - What DIA need at the moment are specialists in logistics management - particularly stock control, production mangement, and sales. All imo & dyor.

No reason to be long here, I remain short, but with a tighter stop as I don't want to lose all that lovely profit :-)

And approaching another new low Query a bottom forming or a pause before continuing downwards ? The BIG question. Do the new management have the skill to turn it round ?

NT said this on 23rd April.....looks like he got his wish. "DIA: statement was a bit disappointing, however I had already reached my target and more and decided to bank my profits, making a profit of £726. Future could still be bright though and I'm already thinking of buying them back as at under 700 they have a lot of potential."

...perhaps I should have said unlikely but possible for a sale as an outcome of a strategic review as I take your point re the 'management speak'

I was the one that mentioned a sale. I'm just attuned to 'managementspeak' and "a strategic review of the business" is a common phrase to signal the possibility of a sale. Also, (and sorry to bang on about this) but the issue about burning cash looks to be closely related to "product development" (see my post 2766 on the subject) http://uk.advfn.com/cmn/fbb/thread.php3?id=9955617&from=2766&to=2766 and now they say they are carrying out a "review of its operations, supply chain, and product development". If, as I suggested, "product development" is not an exceptional cost to be capitalised (i.e. taken out of the P&L account as they have been doing) but is necessary year-on-year expenditure to develop new products and keep at the forefront of this technology, perhaps they would be better as part of a much larger organisation that could carry such costs or had its own R&D Dept so they could take DIA's sales but cut their overhead. To a 'trade buyer' it would be worth a multiple of EBITDA.

no need to feel sorry for me I'm 7%+ up on the day but I do feel for those who've suffered as a result of today's news, as for £3 that's just a wild guess and there's no indication of any fundraising in any case, when the strategic review has been completed they may just scale back on expansion plans for now or as someone else suggested could put themselves up for sale but that's just a wild guess as well

Sorry for you guys, the bod let you down, the last update raised doubts, but was not expecting that statement. Thers obviously been a tesco moment by the last ceo. Might be a fund raise so dont rule out 300p imo.

That was the encouraging paragraph, so maybe not all doom and gloom, still holding so lets hope so.

yes I did consider that, but on the other hand with a new chief exec just appointed it could be a case of get all the bad news out in one go, from your link: "Mr Sutsko may also have decided to do a ‘kitchen sink’ update. By getting all the bad news out at the start of his tenure, he should improve his chances of delivering growth and a rising share price from now on."

Diku....So true....had over 400% at one time, greed greed greed, I must stop being so greedy. Brought in under £2 when NT was trumpeting this company, wonder what he thinks now. This is what happens when you have high PE and very little liquidity few sells hit the share price hard, it not all back news. hTTps://www.fool.co.uk/investing/2015/06/10/should-you-buy-or-sell-dialight-plc-after-falling-by-a-third-today/ You know what they say about profit warnings they come in !!!!!!!!!!

Morale of the story is anybody who bought around 300p should have sold any price above 1000p....buy and hold forever is out of window....
