essentialinvestor: Not as CFO. It's all in the RNS. Will keep ESNT on a watch list.
loads2: His last day was 31 March 2022. He served a notice period of 1 year from 2021 to 31 March 2022. He remained CFO until 31 March 2022. The share price rot set in before the war. Back to essentra I note their dismissiveness of the war and its effects. Some rubbish about only 5% of their business is with Russia is what they say. They completely miss the wider effects of this war eg recession which is why the share price is going down. The biggest idiot at essentra is the CEO who I understand is drunk most of the time. The guy before was Colin Day who was an even bigger idiot. Essentra do find them...
loads2: Progress. It's the Jack James Clark effect. Happened at Marshalls. When they can't go lower he will be gifted free shares under the essentra executive share plan. He then will hang around a bit while they recover then he 'retires' on full board pay on a years notice. Starts selling the gifted shares and then joins his next ftse company while still being excessively paid by his current company. At least he won't be able to spread the tax burden with his ex wife this time because she's divorced him. He loves his money, and so did she.
loads2: So now they are rid of packaging which was quite a drain on their working capital, they are free of the burden but the share price us down. Clueless management will no go and buy up lots of small components businesses overpaying for each one.
essentialinvestor: Phil, perhaps disappointment on the price achieved. Unfortunately because it's taken so long to get to this point some may have lost either interest or faith in the stewardship of ESNT?. It was not too long ago they issued extra shares to help buy a US packaging business, expanding that division, they also acquired a Spanish packaging company under the current CEO, then it's a not so quick 180 turn with..we are selling the entire division, ex India.
loads2: Trading update says nothing substantive about the strategic review which commenced 9 months ago. How long does such a review take? What specific progress has been made ? Surely by now they should be saying something about there being interested parties in buying filters and packaging? I maintain my opinion that the board are very weak, are the type who turn up for meetings for mega bucks but do very little else. The strategic review comes after years of underperformance in the share price. Its being latched onto as a "good idea" but the board has zero experience in having actually successfully delivered what they are now trying to achieve. When belatedly announcements are made you need to look very closely at how much shareholder money us being spent on advisers fees. My god, this board need to pay advisers because the board is clueless. The reality is this business and its strategic review are being held back by the wider global economic environment- something which the board are dismissive of. This remains a get rich quick for the board with lip service being paid to shareholders. I've no doubt in the short term the share price might go up a little but in the medium term the price will drop. Max upside 350 but share price will be 2 quid something by the end of the year. In 2023 it will be lower
loads2: Yes prime takeover target. Big mismatch between board pay and competence. None of the board has any experience of actually completing a strategic review to deliver higher shareholder value. I've no doubt the packaging and filters businesses will be sold at under value, after which boardroom pay will stay high even though essentra will be only a third of its present size. The new cfo is very much a "let's make a lot of money" for himself guy. Start by googling Jack Clarke Marshalls plc where his package was 1.4m. He then "retired" but stayed on for a year during which time he was paid 500,000 for attending 7 board meetings to 'ensure an orderly transition to his successor'. Its all publicly available information. If essentra gets taken over by say electrocomponents then they won't need the clueless idiots who sit on the essentra board. I believe essentra share price will drop before they are taken over at a premium and their board is eventually cleared out. Not sure what is sustainable about essentra but they keep going on about sustainability. Its a buzz word right now
loads2: Share price keeps going down
philanderer: Not seen anything. Questor share tip: Essentra's slimming down is already paying off, but do share buybacks really achieve anything? .. there is value waiting to be unlocked at Essentra. Hold. Questor says: hold Ticker: ESNT Share price: 332p
philanderer: Peel Hunt analyst Charles Hall suggests ‘The key to the share price in the short term is the outcome of the Strategic Review-the process to move to a pure-play Components business is ongoing and the review is progressing in line with expectations’. Essentra’s packaging business has been successfully turned around and now offers a focused business proposition in secondary healthcare packaging. It will be an attractive asset to many financial and strategic buyers. However, Essentra filters is a more difficult sell. If no cash buyer is found, Essentra will try to combine it with a competitor or spin it off. Following the disposals, Essentra will become a standalone components business. Key peers including Electrocomponents, and Diploma trade on average at a clear premium to Essentra.
