Some director buys would also be useful.

The shadowfall report HAS to be addressed in the AGM. The report has done a lot of damage and has decimated the share price.The report was definately backward looking and had many pitfalls.Other brokers have increased their price target though ,and seem to discard the shadowfall report. Pi's are very nervous though and their fears should be allayed by management.

Is anyone going to the AGM? If so please report back, and it would be useful if you ask the obvious questions! S

I've added some as well, also hoping management will reassure over the next couple of days.

Reading the posts since the Shadowfall report, not convinced that they understand the FUTR business and how they make money.

The latest FCA data suggests that Coltrane increased their short last Friday from 1.55% to 1.69% which if they had executed during the afternoon could have accounted for a reasonable percentage of the total volume. No sign of Shadowfall on the list so their position must be too small and under the disclosable threshold? If they were that confident in their analysis surely they would have taken a position big enough to require a disclosure? 0.5% is only roughly 500,000 shares after all.https://www.fca.org.uk/markets/short-selling/notification-and-disclosure-net-short-positions

Peel Hunt: Future at attractive entry point Media group Future (FUTR) may have come under pressure from short-seller Shadowfall but Peel Hunt says it is ‘materially ahead’ for 2020. Analyst Jessica Pok retained her ‘buy’ recommendation and target price of £19.75 on the stock, which has come under attack from Shadowfall, which criticised the group as ‘a collection of generally low quality, often distinct and shrinking assets’ and accused Future of overstating its revenue growth. However, a subsequent trading update has buoyed the shares, which rose 4.1% to £13.32 yesterday. An update for the first four months of the year was ‘materially ahead of market expectations’ according to Pok, who is looking to increase earnings per share forecasts by 10%. ‘Future’s share price has been weak recently; we believe this is an excellent entry point to a stock which is set to deliver an earnings per share compound annual growth rate of over 30% for the next three years,’ she said.

Agree that a specific rebuttal RNS could be counter productive as it draws attention to the report which many may not have read nor previously intended to read. Increased IR effort is what’s required instead. Agree with MOG - the whole point is to take declining print titles, put them on the e-commerce platform and monetise them. Comparing declining revenues from historical print to projected increased digital revenues is apples and pears which is where shadow fall down IMV. A bit like Ocado which also attracts polarising views - is it a grocer or high tech IT?

The circumstances where a company must make an RNS are described in the DTRs and MAD. They seem to be generally related to timeliness of accounts reporting and disclosure of inside info. As the shadow report is a view based piece and presumably based on public data, then, however frustrating it may be, a response via RNS may not be appropriate and potentially a misuse of the channel? My basic understanding from sifting through the dtrs is that companies are only required to respond to speculation via rns if the content meets the definitions of inside info, is actually true and is causing the price to move. Therefore, in an way, the lack of rns could be viewed as reassuring because the company doesn't believe any of shadows content to be true. But best DYOR and give the dtrs and MaD a read yourselves if you can stomach it!That said, shadows report is likely to be the main topic of conversation at the investor day tomorrow and one would hope management is armed to the teeth to deal with questions on it. Perhaps there will be a presentation to investors that deals with shadows claims which could be put on FUTRs website for all to see. The CEO could also do a Q&A or press interviews to set the record straight. The IR dept and advisors really ought to be going into overdrive to sort this out but so far the response does seem a bit underwhelming.On another point, there have been no TR1s from major investors - I think FUTRs top 10 shareholders own about 50% of the company (according to shadows report) so any sell down by them might have to be disclosed. That suggests to me that they are riding this one out so far.

Mog, Absolutely 100% correct and that’s why Future has been top of my watchlist for a month or so. You vocalise the response that management should be forcefully reiterating!!! S

I haven't read the Shadowfall report. This is from The Times link in Sweenoid's post: Shadowfall says that some of the businesses bought “have long histories of declining revenue and profit and all too frequent reorganisation costs. We find it difficult to reconcile the performance of assets as reported by Future compared to the performance reported by the sellers of the same assets.” Isn't that the whole point of Future's strategy and the reason for their success? They buy under-performing assets and monetise them by putting them on Future's on-line platform.

Some comment on FT Alphaville Marketsnotlive with broker report extracts.Numis upgrade and new PT of 1990. Panmure Gordon upgrade and new PT of 2092. The brokers really ought to have addressed the shadow report and it's not clear from the extracts whether they have or not

Edited Here is this mornings Times ‘take’ on events hTtps://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/future-shrugs-off-shorters-by-upgrading-its-forecasts-fkt8xqcj6?shareToken=3edbf72e9d0625d898a16d3242ab368a The Times also has a personal profile of the CEO , for some reason it won’t let me copy it, an interesting piece? not quite sure what to make of it, but you will need to read it to understand what that comment means? I guess with the AGM tomorrow and then the ‘Capital Markets day’ on Thursday things should be clearer. The crux question for investors is obviously related to the core organic growth and what is happening to it. I despise Earl and his operation, however the questions he asks have to be answered. Gang- banging companies in cahoots with shorting ‘allies’ has to be an odious practice that surely should be regulated? S

bm - I agree entirely. I love the smell of burnt witches, errrrr, shorters. Good one, FDH. Too much progress in FUTR for it to fall unless "skidded" by the Sunday drivers. I quote a "rebelious" friend of mine, go figureitout! whose maths look good: "FUTR - If 2020 eps is going to be materially ahead of forecasts of 56.7p then surely we can safely suggest that the current 2022 forecast of 79p could be upgraded by another 10%? taking it to 87p. Current price 1280p making a forward 2022 PE of 15? No one is going to convince me that Future is expensive." BTW, I have been buying RCH, hoping for another FUTR in the making on a P/E of <4! Big pension deficit, I admit, due in large part to absurd real interest rates like many others, but they cut that by c.12% out of ebitda last year. Tipped in the current issue of SCSW. Rinse and repeat. DYOR, WTFDIK & NAI as usual...
