Haynes Publishing Group PLC 02 September 2013 Haynes Publishing Group P.L.C. ("the Group") Operational update Following the conclusion of its six month strategic review of the business at the end of June (first announced on 18 December in the pre-interim close statement), Haynes Publishing Group has today announced that it proposes to focus its business on the areas with the largest growth potential - DIY manuals; information systems for use by professional mechanics; and the expansion of its digital offering, including the development of additional digital platforms. As a result of these changes, it is restructuring parts of the UK business. It has commenced a consultancy period for staff across its Haynes Books Division and distribution teams, with a small number of redundancies (voluntary and, if necessary, compulsory) proposed from the Books Division. It is also closing its distribution site, situated at Haynes' headquarters near Yeovil, and outsourcing this entire function to an external provider, with all staff transferring to the new partner under TUPE Regulations. J Haynes, Chairman of the Group, commented: "the review has enabled us to focus on the core strengths of the business and we are confident that we now have the right strategy in place to return the business to growth. This involves returning to our grass roots, while adapting to modern needs by enhancing our digital capabilities and expanding our presence in the professional market through HaynesPro. Regrettably we will need to reduce UK staffing levels in this process but we need to focus our business on our strongest performing areas to drive growth. We will of course offer all the support we can to those who will need to find new positions." The Group will report the results of its 4th quarter trading and its final results for the financial year ending 31 May 2013 on 23 September 2013.

Shareholders are advised that the sole reason for the change in results date is due to the above timing. In relation to the Group's financial performance, the Board is confident that it will be reporting pre-tax profit and earnings figures slightly ahead of the latest broker's forecast. Some good news at last?

Yes - fair point. I'm not sure this is across the board though. Your internet comment is valid and definitely reduces the value of their Intellectual Property. Still has value, but is it as valuable?

I disagree about people not doing DIY on their cars anymore. I'd say they are doing it more than they ever did. But that does not necessarily benefit Haynes. Because as i said, it's all there on the internet for free. For any diy project i undertake on my car there is simply no end to the amount of information i can source on the internet from others who have not only done the same diy themselves but fully documented, photographed and uploaded to the internet for free. You cant beat real world experiences of hundreds of others owning the same vehicle and sharing their real world diy fixes on the net.

Held up quite well despite the dire news today. I'd like to understand volumes versus selling prices over the last 5 years - suspect it might show that hardback manuals are in structural decline due to computer diagnostics etc, but revenues have held up reasonably well through price increases. 10-20 years ago, people used to spend time playing with their cars and doing DIY themselves. Not sure this happens much these days..people are too lazy or don't have the patience or skills...that's the problem, unless they sell to the auto trade workshops, but that is lower volumes. HaynesPro is only up 7% (excluding currency movements) which is very low growth given the investment being made. If they can get the digital side motoring then this will transform the business, but it's looking a hard ask. Dividend cut and lack of future outlook detail tells me that the outlook is still very tough. Anyway, still watching as am hopeful that they can turn it around as they have before, but this is going on-line!

Oh dear. The curse of share buybacks strikes again. Most do not benefit remaining shareholders in my experience. Spare cash should go as dividends if the management is devoid of good investment ideas. Beginning to look like new blood needed here. Sorry chaps, my target price was 150p but I don't think I'm interested any more. I'll take it off my monitor and wish you all good luck.

More excuses. Bottom line ; "the Group's pre-tax profits ended the period at GBP1.2 million (2011: GBP1.8 million), down 33%, but ahead of the latest broker forecast"

Dividend cut - be interesting to see what today's results will do to the share price. I was expecting about a £1m profit, so slightly better than could have been. But, unless they start getting some revenue growth prospects look tough. Will look at further later, but the decline in print sales continue to exceed the modest growth in digital.

I'm still monitoring it for repurchase but consider the price too high. I suspect buybacks are being used to keep the price up, which would make matters even worse. Declining revenues and declining cash balances would be bad news. However, I keep monitoring in the hope I am being too critical. I would take 195p as a good exit price until they show signs of stabilising things.

I've reluctantly reduced ahead of the interim results. Really like this company, so it was a difficult decision, but worried about the structural decline in revenue. I've turned a small profit. Management have failed to drive up the revenue line in recent years, and it's getting to quite a critical point so worried about the strategy review results and potential dividend cut. Will be back in if either the price falls significantly or things are not as bad as feared. We will find out next week.

18 December 2012 Having blamed 50 Shades of Grey for falling sales of its car manuals and DIY books, publisher Haynes today said it had launched a "fundamental strategic review" of its business. Chairman J Haynes said: "We are exploring ways we can bolster revenues in our traditional print titles and opportunities to develop our digital offering and ensure practices are in place to take the group back into growth. We expect to complete our thorough review in June 2013." Haynes said that while US sales rose 7% in the second quarter, sales in the UK and Europe were down by 9%, leaving group revenues off by 2%. The chairman said he still expected the traditional improvement in sales during the second half of its financial year. He added: "The group continues to have a strong balance sheet, no gearing and good cash flow. We are well-positioned to get through this difficult period of trading, which is also affecting a number of other publishing companies."

Trading still tough. Strategy Review announced. I will keep loyal as I still believe in the brand which is very strong and their balance sheet remains pretty solid.

The US position is worrying given Q1 of last year was also very weak.
