John , you have a point but maybe management shared even worse prospects with analysts and shareholders. Despite the 10p rise there has been a 100p loss over last year so nothing for management to be proud about. The results are horrific especially when you see the fall in profits from recently acquired businesses. For the TALC business it is worth noting that management would have paid even more but were told to go reduce the price by investors. They promise cost savings but who increased costs in the first place. For years the business was run by a tight group of managers who knew the business. Now it seems to be run by an increasingly clueless and numerous management team. Venezuela calls for a new management team so let’s hope that the key shareholders agree. Suggest they start with a change of chairman, who seems incapable of keeping a check on an inexperienced and ill focused management team.

But the market likes it - so there you go.

Hope so. Given how bullish they were on the Mondo business you’d expect a strong first half performance from that at least.

Large trade on through. Hopefully a leak on the results

I agree with your sentiment although it is that management team that have delivered this performance . I’m not sure what the Board is doing to manage this for shareholders. It doesn’t seem too supportive of the shares given no recent share purchases. You might have thought the chairman would have bought some to show confidence.

Bought into these when they were 270 and seemed to have a good growth story. Really hoping for some positive half year results to give this a bounce. Management team have been in there for nearly 3 years now so about time we saw some delivery.

Well it doesn't seem to want to go below 130 so I am looking to buy your shares:)

AM555, a good assessment. Why I'm in here is a mystery to me, well actually because of a news sheet which got this wrong. Pain no more this am but I just don't like getting out on a bottom - it will double the second I pull the trigger :-)

UT at 129.9!!! I'll take that as 130 so not gone yet!

I agree that the debt is a negative but the business isn't overly geared. The problem I think is that management hasn't got the background or knowledge in the industry. The business has largely failed to deliver new products and, therefore has had to buy in growth. I am led to believe that many of the "so called premium products" are now suffering price pressure. The company desperately needs a new direction as its often talked about "reignite growth" strategy has gone the way of a damp firework on 5th November - a "damp squib".

The acquisition spree seems way too costly and has made the company rather indebted. That for me is the main negative.

It hasn't closed below 130 (yet) so I think this remains a key level to watch.

I think it dropped below 130p this morning? Certainly some trades below that level. The issue is a lack of confidence in management by investors. if you cast your mind back, this is the same management team that was told to go back and renegotiate the Mondo deal as managements view of acceptable price wasn't accepted by investors. The confidence issue is, however, as much about the Board who agreed the strategy and,in particular a weak Chairman who lacks weight and strategic foresight. The fact that management is poor is a matter for the Board and until changes take place the shares will remain unloved! As a shareholder I will be writing to the Chairman, anyone interested to see the note?

Well 130 - seems to be a key level and if that does not turn out to be support then 100 is on the cards as the next historical and psychological level. I suppose you could classify ELM as a bell-weather stock and if the much heralded stock market crash turns out to happen then you should be able to pick these up at about 20p (see 2002-5 and then 2009). No notified change in short positions. I wouldn't want to hold - until I buy some :)

Or of course the board could resign, that would be a great move.

Until results or a leak thereof, not much hope on an uplift - just a steady decline imo.

Another 3% off the share price ; what does the market know that us poor shareholders don't? have they been sharing updates with analysts. Let there be someone out there who sees value.....

wow what a shocking state of affairs this is. Needs management changes forthwith if not sooner.
