These results indicate steady progress in my view. The Balance Sheet is very strong and it is good to see that management are prepared to resort to the scalpel when they have to. The outlook seems good to me and the second half tends to be stronger than the first. Very firm hold imo.

OK, thank you. I didn't get past the text at the top of the RNS. So, fairly immaterial.

Shanklin, They did! Suggs lost £104,000 during the period and a loss of £120,000 was recorded on the sale of the business (being the difference between the recorded asset value and price achieved).

WCB No position here but do follow TFW. A little surprised that they announce the sale, at a nominal price, of the Sugg business and don't say anything about the associated impact on the B/S or ongoing profitability. Obviously it will help the latter, but by how much?

HY results show nice steady improvement, but the statement is more noticeable for the sweet farewell to 97-year old Ernest ('may his light shine elsewhere'), the final decision to relinquish the antique Sugg business, and the most rapid dividend payment I have ever seen: 'The interim dividend will be paid on 2 April 2015 to shareholders on the register at the close of business on 27 March 2015, and the shares become ex-dividend on 26 March 2015.'

Sp suddenly started to move. Are we beginning to discount the prospect of much improved numbers?

Quiet is an understatement....more like moribund, unlike the share price that has a nice run recently. Interims due mid March so would not expect much activity on the board till then....and even then unlikely to get much!

Incredibly quiet here considering the recent move has taken the shares to an all time high. Very good solid company. Did anyone attend the Agm ?

It was ther Agm yesterday and unfortunately I could not attend this year. Did any of you go ? It was good to see the company with a display stand at Mello2014.

Very few people awake to the possibilities here. The Led light revolution has only just begun!

Thanks for that CWA1. The statement is almost unique amongst companies reporting this month in that Thorpe is seemingly experiencing no unexpected weakness in its markets.

Fairly upbeat and excitable by Thorpe standards? :-) 13(th) November 2014 F W Thorpe Plc Annual General Meeting statement At the Annual General Meeting of F W Thorpe Plc, Chairman, Andrew Thorpe, will make the following statement. "Now I must say a few words in regards to prospects for the coming year. The last financial year returned to our favoured pattern with a gradual and ongoing improvement in our business volumes and with no unexpected surprises. The new year in which we currently find ourselves continues in the same vein to date and it is hoped that our fortunes will remain on this upward trend. A further reduction in traditional technology production in favour of LED is expected with a corresponding reduction in complexity within the business. This and our widening sales platform should provide us with further growth."

A little bit of buying by PIs ahead of the Mello2014 investor show??

See that the Directors are using the current share price weakness to top up their share options. Small market caps are out of favour at the moment.......but that won't do on forever.

LED industrial market to grow by nearly 30% by 2018 What the report actually says is "The analysts forecast that the Global LED Industrial Lighting market will grow at a CAGR of 29.64 percent over the period 2013-2018." That's growth by a factor of 1.2964^5 = 3.6618 over the five years - i.e. a 266.18% increase. Depending on just what dates are being talked about, somewhere between about 0.75 and 1.75 of those years of growth have already happened, so the growth being predicted from now until 2018 is less than that - a minimum of about a factor of 1.2964^3.25 = 2.3249, or a 132.49% increase. I.e. the report is definitely predicting a lot more than 30% growth by 2018! Note I'm not making that prediction myself, nor do I stand by the IMHO ridiculous number of significant figures in the report's 29.64% prediction. I'm only interpreting what the link says, not confirming it! Gengulphus

davidosh, which day will TFW be present at the Derby investor show? And is there a full list anywhere of what other companies are attending, and on which days? Thanks, Mayn

Do not forget that pretty much a quarter of the market cap is covered by net cash here. TFW are going to be at my Mello investor show in Derby in 6-8th November which is great news if any of you want to meet the management. mello2014.com

Yes, stellar results IMO, from a long term stellar performer. I bought a few today for the EEZY2 portfolio. http://uk.advfn.com/cmn/fbb/thread.php3?id=30375760&from=713 TFW have compounded revenue growth at 6% since 1998 and margins have generally improved over that period. That's really a fantastic performance. Ben Graham's (2 x growth rate) +8 formula suggests a P/E of 20 would not be unreasonable. Illiquidity and big family holdings etc may put off a few but pretty good value here I think.

Good results this morning that will probably get lost in all the news about Scottish Independence. Interesting to hear the comments about the LED/non-LED markets and what is driving change or lack of it. No doubt in my mind that LED will eventually triumph and that there is plenty of money to be made by companies who are actively involved in managing the change.......however chaotic it may prove to be. The special divi. also helps and I'm expecting the share price to catch up some lost ground in the run up to Xmas.
