"Chairman Martin Lightbody, who disposed of 6.5m last July at a price of 53p." So...after more than doubling I think the turnover per share....since the Lightbody acquisition.....and getting rid of the debt mountain.... Mr Lightbody still rated the shares a big sell at 53p !! So he must of rated them a super duper strong sell at 90p with half the turnover per share and a debt mountain X years earlier !! imo ....t.were a very dubious deal... ---- and anyone clever enough to notice at the time that it was way over priced deal.....sadly the co. with a mountain of debt and bad P/E ....would have made a packet shorting the shares....and if done via an offshore company.....no one would ever know who was doing it.

I am curious if markt has any comments on the Board changes Knowing that he has never been a member of the fan club of either of the Directors leaving, I thought these changes might have piqued his interest

I think Ray Duignan and Peter Baker are brilliant additions to the Board really. (Come on, Peter even has the perfect name for it doesn't he?). I am not sure about the action behind the scenes to make this happen, but I am glad it has. It does mark a new era for FIF. Whatever happens next, I think a very clear message has been sent out by FIF - that it is (getting) ready to do something significant. Given that the industry is ripe for some sort of consolidation, it is nice to see this imo. Potentially exciting times on the horizon?

Yes, quite unexpected I think. Lightbody was the major mover and Marshall must have been pushed as his policy is to try and be on the board at all strategic investments. Clearly, something is going on. Lightbody still has a very material stake, so why step down? I just don't get it. LFI have 14% and Lightbody 11%...why step-down? Talks about a pivotal moment for FIF. Makes you wonder if something big is about to happen or the Board has just fallen out over the way forward. If you owned 11% of FIF and were the Chairman, would you step down?

The new Chairman sounds like a very good addition to the Board. Clearly Lightbody stepping down is a significant moment in the Group's history. Not wishing to speak out of turn, but Marshall isn't without his critics and I, for one, am not too sorry to see him go at this point. The message sent is surely that FIF wants to be a bigger player than it is just now. I like it

The share price should certainly be a lot higher for a company in rude health.

Phew, I'd much rather we stay independent - unless the offer is multi-bagging.

Maybe Premier has rang up offering to buy us out. Don't get excited though, they'll call back this afternoon and say April Fools! :o)

El1te I read that same note and it is a fair point. Consolidation in the industry could happen any time. If FIF's Directors want to acquire, rather than be acquired, they have to convince the 'money' involved that they are the better management team and that FIF is the better horse to back... They are doing the right sort of stuff to achieve that imo.

No callum, I'm serious - FIF's performance over recent years has been excellent. They've transformed their finances and continued to compete well despite tough market conditions; a continuation of what they've been consistently doing will yield growth in turnover and profitability together with even greater financial solidity.

12-14 would be nearer the mark I reckon.

"Crazy forward PER - should be nearer 20, given our financial solidity." For a food business spaceparallax! - you're having a laugh.

Looks like I'll have to retract my previous statement. They really are ramping up capex. £14m to be spent in two years. Why the hell couldn't they say that in the results? You can see capex is high for this half at £3.7m but the interims don't really tell you that is going to continue for another 3 half years. Still, I suppose the forecasted £2m annual addition in profit from the £3.9m fund raising always did seem a high rate of return. They could have made it clearer at the time how large the capex projects were. HTTP://uk.finance.yahoo.com/news/finsbury-foods-doubles-investment-cake-business-7m-earnings-010720884.html

I recall a note out from Webb Capital a month or so ago that read that Finsbury was quite possibly a takeover target itself.

acquisitions might ideally be funded by equity of course but for FIF, which despite the impressive results in recent years, still has a very low rating, would find that difficult I suppose there is still some legacy around of the last equity funded acquisitions too, painful memories for some.

They are generating more than enough cash to reinvest in the existing business. I said this at the fundraising and maintain this on seeing these results. A smaller dividend just builds up the acquisition war chest a little quicker.

Yes, interim results quite positive in a difficult environment. Would have been nice to increase the dividend, but its still pretty nominal anyway. Better to reinvest in the business if this is needed.

I think they are working hard behind the scenes on i) business as usual and ii) to put themselves in a strong position for industry consolidation ii) is more important in the long term. FIF has to get the balance of investment right: to keep the balance sheet in good order; to keep (potential) funders convinced that they (FIF) are better managers than their competitors and to have the most efficient and effective supply chain I haven't seen anything that would make me think they aren't doing that
