Any day of any month is when a dividend can be declared.It's a quirk that incoming CEOs have accepted as part of GAW's nonconformist culture.The way things are looking, I expect dividends to be at least 50% more than last fiscal year.

"I'm not clear where we are with the next dividend payment. Is confirmation expected soon?" LOL, get a pin, stand in front of your calendar, close your eyes...... Welcome to Games Workshop :-)

The latest was the 20p dividend declared on 13 June, which went ex-dividend on 22 June, and paid on 21 July. Games Workshop don't have a rigid dividend announcement schedule...they can just return any excess cash to shareholders at any time! The single analyst covering GAW, Peel Hunt, forecasts dividends of 80p for FY17 and 80p for FY18. That has not been updated for the latest management statement.

Some fairly crude maths would suggest that every extra pound in revenue adds 50p to profit.So if revenue could get to £188.1m that's another £15m profit"The firm's profits soared from just under £17m in 2016 to £38.4m this year. Revenues also increased from £118m last year to £158.1m to the end of May."The GAW HQ has an interesting facadehttp://www.eastmidlandsbusinesslink.co.uk/mag/finance/games-workshop-profits-doubled/

Thinking about the collectables market in asia overall and its huge, packed with retro/modern gaming, trading cards, wall art etc. Given how the Asia expansion is going and how big the collectable market is there, definitely agree.

Nice steady fast riser, so long as Asia expansion continues and £ is relatively low plenty of room for positive feedback I think. IG £5 a trade, haven't noticed pricing issues.

OMG !!! This is AWESOME !! How far can it go ? OT but I use iii for trading and although it's only £10 a trade and I've never had any issues with them, I feel that I don't always get the best price. What's everyone else's experience and would you recommend anyone else ?

Nod I suspect there'll be another dividend fairly soon too.

Following such a stellar rise of more than 100% over the past 9 months, results day is often met with period of profit taking (buy on rumour, sell on fact). It's encouraging that today there were few sellers. The facts exceeded the rumours.

Opening Asia stores will be a big improvement. Far cheaper rents and staff costs, while the product may retail at a similar price. Also most of the world's population. In Asia shops tend to be highly staffed for this reason.

Simso, their retail shops/stores are seen as essential for attracting customers to their unique hobby, but shop rents and rates are expensive. GAW aims to have each of their own stores operating around break-even and will close loss-making stores or downsizes them to one-man shops if that is an option."Retail - provides the focus for the Hobby in their areas. They only stock Games Workshop product. They are where we recruit the majority of our new customers. To do so the stores don't offer the full range of our product, just new release product and the appropriate extended range. At the year end we had 462 Games Workshop stores in 23 countries. Our stores contributed 41% of the year's sales. We have 360 one man stores, small sites, each one staffed by only one store manager. We also have 102 multi-man stores, which are constantly reviewed to ensure they remain profitable. If not, they will be closed and probably replaced with one man stores. "

Personally I'd much rather have an under promise, over deliver mantra with conservative forecasts and the chance of further upgrades.

Out of interest, where do you get your Peel Hunt forecasts? Are they bundled with some online subscription?

I still think the new Peel Forecasts look very prudent, with a modest +4% growth in PBT. The word Peel use to describe trading in the new year to date is "sparkling", and the new price target of £15 looks like it could be breached imminently, rather than being a medium term aspiration. One thing in the results which did surprise me was that "Retail", (which I take to mean the 460 stores all around the world), makes only £0.5m profit in total, compared to a loss a year earlier. It appears all the money is made in Mail Order, Independents and Licencing. It is always a slightly circular argument, as without the stores, the Mail order and Licencing might not thrive to the same degree...but nonethless it was surprising to me. They have done a lot of work on turning stores into One Man Operations, lots of Openings and Closings and Capex investment. The business is on a roll, with real trading momentum, and I expect further upgrades as the year progresses, against what still appear very prudent Peel numbers.

Thank you Nod Presumably there will be extensive testing, and a backout plan for each phase of the implementation, to limit any unforeseen disruption to the ongoing business as the new system is progressively implemented. Provided GAW have a complete test system set up in parallel with the production system, I don't really see why there should be any problems for the ongoing business.

Shanklin, they haven't got to implementation yet ... that will be painful, disruptive, etc. They are now opting for a phased installation. This will cost more as they will need to integrate new apps with old apps, until the old apps are phased out.
