I think that is what the market is thinking.....better without it, rather than cut your own throat.But disappointing, not sure how much of an impact going forward.

FGP loses thames link franchise and after a bigish drop it has almost recovered?? Could it be any lower bid would have lost money for SH, so better to be out?

I agree Slater, better to have better profits now than pay out a div and as you say have the share price drop by div on ex div.

If the share price is recovering with a "no divi" announcement, that's better than a recovery that would fall away as soon as it went Ex dividend. But it still falls short of the pre/post rights issue announcents, to reinstate the dividend. This 'recovery' could take some time I think, and there's many a slip twixt cup and decent profits.

Making a nice bowl, looks set to go and test new highs.Return to profit, seem to be carrying out the turnaround strategy well in all areas, much improved balance sheet.Divi would have helped but I am actually encouraged by their resolve to put the investment in place and the balance sheet right as first priority.

Is no div the reason for the big drop in share price today.

Well no divi, but not bad results imho, given where the share price is. Still a recovery play as far as I am concerned.

" -- subject to performance in line with business expectations -- " Judging by the recent performance (SP), "expectations", have not been met or exceeded. I rather suspect the final divi, if announced at all, will be disappointing. We'll know soon enough

Hi Scottishfield, looks like possibly just over 4p a share to come with the F.Y. 15. I prefer Rotala similar field with a safe progressive dividend of 3.8% and rising. Dividends The Board recognises that dividends are seen as an important component of equity returns by many of our shareholders. In the medium term, as the business performance improves, the Board intends to re-establish a progressive and sustainable dividend policy to target dividend cover of 2.0 to 2.5 times. In the short term, the Board intends that: * no final dividend will be paid in respect of FY 2013 * no interim dividend will be paid in respect of FY 2014 * dividend payments will recommence with a final dividend in FY 2014, subject to performance in line with business expectations, as a transition to re-establishing a progressive dividend policy thereafter * subject to the Board determining the exact amount, a transitional final dividend of up to £50 million in FY 2014 would be recommended; and * thereafter, a dividend cover of 2.0 to 2.5x would be targeted.

I've reduced exposure to my small/mid-cap shares/funds as i anticipate an overall market pull back during the summer. Good time to take profits i feel. Good time for sanks and his birds to short all those overbought co's ;-) GL all :-)

What are peoples thought regarding the thameslink franchise? Has anyone heard any news in the press? Announcements like these usually leak out a few days before it's official.

Milliband can't do any damage, if the daft British electorate don't vote the fool into #10. The trouble is my use of the word "daft", to describe the British electorate. My fear is, that it describes a sufficient number of them accurately.

Is Milliband talking about taking back the Train operators to gov hands as they become due, going to hang over FGP?

Final results 21-May-2014. Maybe things are looking up, in anticipation of a final divi being announced.
