Alot of the damage here is self inflicted by poor management decisions.Its like blasting your foot with a shotgun -deciding its not painful enough so blasting your other foot.The government has simply abandoned the carbon world. Never come across a company where everything that could go wrong has gone wrong -mostly at the same time.

The neckline of the long term H&S can be placed in various different positions, each of which result in different targets. Lowest is 120.

Well guys where now? Market getting worse and a possible 20 plus million loan write off at Tower. More customers closing and will have 300,000 tonnes of coal on Scottish soil by y/e. That will hurt cash flow. Transport division down on loss of Rock salt ( warm winter ), waste losses and Bio loss. Nothing at all is going right for them. Full year will now be a certain loss after exc items. Surprised they paid any dividend. However they wasted all that money on share backs so a small div is nothing. lets hope this new division pays off. Land looks a great asset if they had no other debts etc. Might attract a bidder ( Ex uk coal land company). I see 150p as a new target. Tiger

Just had a nibble at these, down 17.5% at the moment, though I know all about falling knives. Rather liked the realistic tone of the interim report: http://www.investegate.co.uk/hargreaves-servs-plc--hsp-/rns/interim-results/201602160700061386P/ Also like the idea of the property portfolio taking centre stage at some time in the future, with a good deal of the remediation and restoration before sale within the capabilities of the company itself. Seems financially sound despite the demise of coal, and hope to have caught near the bottom.

If this is anything, it should be a potential asset value proposition - is that right? Are the receivables secure? If so, they and the cash should cover the debt. Inventories are stuck, by the looks of it - are these mostly coal stocks? Are the property assets potential development land? If so, they won't be freely realisable, as they will be contaminated. Is that so? Would welcome comments on these ideas, please.

Artemis have picked up 300,000 shares in the last month which must be a fair proportion of everything sold in the last month. I have seen Artemis quietly picking up an number of commodity stocks at the moment. It looks to me that this share is stuck between 250 and 260 at the moment with volume drying up as the sellers don't want to go any lower and the buyers not inclined to go any higher

Good luck with that view. I've dealt with both companies, can't see any real synergies and feel that the cultures of the two companies are so far apart that it will be a miracle if this takeover produces any benefits. But that's just my view, so we'll have to wait and see. Regards.

£5.25m to be held in escrow pending outcome of the claims. Basically HSP has ringfenced them. I am finding the RNS difficult to digest without researching Blackwell. On the face of it, it looks like HSP have bought this cheap and then will gain some synergies with their existing business but also diversify their portfolio which can only be good. Provided they have paid the right price this seems a good acquisition at this point in the economic cycle

Not sure if any of the Blackwell family are still involved bench2, but I would imagine they are still substantial shareholders. The youngest member of the family that I've met who was involved in contracting would be 50ish now, but the company had a strong contractual "culture" running through the company over decades. Regards.

Thanks for the warning Muckshifter , given the reference to historic claims it sounds as though the Blackwell family are up to their old tricks .. I remember London & Northern which was a dodgy outfit and the Blackwell's may well take HSP for a ride

This acquisition looks to me like a jump out of the frying pan into the fire. Within the muckshift industry Blackwell's best know characteristic has always been their ability to squeeze every possible penny out of clients using a highly contractual approach. Chris Blackwell, many years ago, got into financial difficulties and sold his company, on the basis, I believe, of substantial outstanding contractual entitlements (claims) to a conglomerate, London & Northern Securities. I don't know how much of that prospective contractual entitlement came through, as claims are almost always a protracted and uncertain asset, but I don't think L& N ever did very well out of CAB. On the other hand, the staff at CAB did very well, I'm sure, out of buying the company back out of L&N when L&N had had enough of them. On that occasion, my belief is that the outstanding contractual entitlements were undervalued, ie. the CAB staff ran rings round L&N, probably receiving claims settlements far in excess of the purchase price, within a year or so of the buyout. The numbers given look distinctly odd and give me the feeling of deja vue. Regards.

What do we think the value of this share is ? A very broad question I know !

interesting small acquisition at a cheap price , away from coal but earth shifting the same skill set . Having cut and run at 480p , a 130p loss , I have stayed away , but this will be an interesting value play when oil and coal prices bottom .

L2 is rather curious today. Someone is desperately trying to keep the price down. Fingers crossed a rise is on the way as there don't seem to be many sellers around

Huge news coverage yesterday and today about BIG K. Just a few miles from here another of my customers closes. Very sad when you think 6 pounds a ton is the only difference between imports and local coal. Not a fan of subsidy but Drax and local power stations should have kept this pit open till coal is no more. HSP will be the last major player in coal production in the UK from ATH sites in Scotland to other open cast sites. However again imports will make production impossible at a profit. Oil down sub 36 and looking like it will fall sub 30. tiger

Your obsession is flattering, however not relevant to the thread and detracts from the intelligent chat that is going on. I'll withdraw for now to allow the company and share price to do the talking.

Don't underestimate CT he is a fairly canny investor and has a good take on companies he has either held or is an investor. Just watching myself and have no position.

Problem is that wiggy is ignoring the real world. He ignores how people who live and breathe in the area where the company does much of its business are saying. People on here with decades of experience of the coal industry. What he would rather believe, is the Wordpress comments of a few European chancers who have valued HSPs land at over 4 quid a share. They forget however that without the rest of the business, no shareholders will reap a penny of that. I'd say good luck to him and filter. He seems more interested in dismissing me due to a bad call on another share.
