Solid performance and a more upbeat than usual sounding statement. Dividend still miserly but if they're investing heavily for future growth then I don't mind too much.

Crazy forward PER - should be nearer 20, given our financial solidity.

FINSBURY FOODS the bread and cakes focused operation released Interim results earlier this morning, for the six months to www.privatepunter.co.uk/‎ FINSBURY FOODS the bread and cakes focused operation released Interim results earlier this morning, for the six months to 28 December 2013. •Group revenue from ongoing operations was down to £86.6m against the previous £88.2m •Pre-tax profit from continuing operations increased by 50.6% to £2.1m Compared to the £1.4m achieved in the corresponding period. •In-roads into the debt continue and that was reduced to a more palatable £11.8m from the £27.4m of 2012. Despite what appears to be a continuing challenging market place, Finsbury has made solid progress and as I noted in my last comment, looks to be operating on a much firmer footing. The shares are up a touch this morning at 54.25p and trade on a forward PER of under 9.

Very solid, with minimal dip in revenue but significant improvements elsewhere on the balance sheet. I'd say that we're significantly undervalued given the strong position upon which FIF can gradually build.

At a quick glance, the results look fine if a little dull. The shares still look quite undervalued but there is no obvious spark to highlight that without an acquisition. The failure to increase the dividend is a bit of a slap in the face to shareholders. It would not have cost much. What are they thinking?

Pretty much as the pre-close statement so at least no nasty surprises. Hopefully we will see a small increase in share price.

Interims out Monday. Not optimistic, I have to say. That said, any profit improvement will underscore the low rating that Finsbury is trading at. El1te

the worst thing that could happen is that AIM and / or the FCA indulge in a prolonged investigation into the details of how PDMR transactions are dealt with at FIF Such an investigation could take ages and be very distracting for the Board. And we really want them focussed on running the business. The best outcome is that whoever was at fault Monk, FIF, the various Advisors involved holds up their hand, demonstrates that it was a mistake and then everyone can move on.

I think a fine can be imposed by the FCA In this case, as I said earlier, I don't see that the company has done anything wrong. But, on the face of it, it does look as though Monk should have piped up sooner doesn't it? Whether he asked the Chairman for permission to deal or not is a separate matter in my mind, but one that should be being investigated by the company right now. It isn't just a matter of asking when you pass someone in the corridor either: the request and the answer to it should be in writing.

Well found jpjp100. But what if any sanction will be applied to this nice chap Monk by either the London Stock Exchange or the company? I am tempted to write to the company asking what they are doing about this as their RNS suggests that they only knew about these dealings 2 days ago (which kind of refutes an earlier posters suggestion that he would have had to obtain permission from the company prior to dealing).

Yes, the tardiness of his declaration should be investigated.

Here's a note on the model code on share dealing. Just found it through a google search, so can't vouch for its accuracy: http://www.out-law.com/page-11693 However, it does say that a director should before dealing get the chief executive's permission and then deal within two days. Assuming that was followed here, the company should have been aware that he was dealing. And yesterday's release after market hours stinks imo, especially when the company was notified the day before. (I don't actually hold here, so I'm not sure why I'm so annoyed about this!)

What was the share plan the other directors had for about 10% of the company? Any link between that and them opting to sell the family jewel?

Yes, that is disgraceful behaviour from a NED. If this was his mistake, and I suspect it was, he is either clueless or corrupt. If, however, it was the companies fault it is even more serious, but I think that unlikely. He should be fired straight away if he didn't notify this promptly. Any NED with a functioning brain knows that this sort of thing needs to be announced. What is he doing as a NED if he can't administer his own shareholding properly. Not a major issue otherwise for the Company. Not helping the price though. Oh well, still think this will bounce soon as looking very cheap again.
