Yes, unfortunately, their business is in a steady decline. Their product is becoming technologically obsolescent.

Oh look another profit warning , how unusual... 22 December 2014 Haynes Publishing Group P.L.C. ("the Group") Post Half Year Close - Trading Update The Group has recently completed trading for the first six months of its financial year ending 31 May 2015. As reported in the Group's first quarter Interim Management Statement issued on 17 October, key consumer retailers implemented working capital management programmes leading to tighter inventory controls. While there are indications that the worst of the inventory reduction programmes may be behind us, trading remains soft and it is clear that our half year results will be seriously impacted to the extent that the Group will only be reporting a small profit for the six month period. While performance in the first half has been extremely disappointing, it remains the case that the Group's trading normally improves significantly in the second half. The Board will be reporting the Group's half year results on 29(th) January 2015 and at that time, with a further two months of trading behind it, will be in a better position to report on the extent of the second half improvement and the expected outcome for the full year.

Yes, results a bit better. Needs organic revenue growth, before I will re-appraise.

Yes, it looks like a business that is in terminal decline to me. Sad, but true.

Interim statement out with Q3 figures. The word "down" seems to appear rather often. Reminds me that I am glad that I didn't buy many of these......

I'm glad to see some better numbers for those that continued to hold here but the news seemed to already be in the market. (Happens too often.) I thought they were never going to manage it. I'd like to see some details in the accounts to confirm an underlying improvement but it certainly looks better on the headlines.

Yes, but only a partial reversal of the very steep revenue falls of the last year or two. Encouraging first steps though.

Yes, I'm not watching the price, I'm watching the revenue. Unless they can start growing revenue this is going nowhere. It's been in decline for at least the last 5 years.

Psychological 200p barrier breached and held for 3 trading days gives me confidence. Would be nice to see 250p by this time next year but I do not expect fireworks - just a steady gradual tick here and there.

Have taken a tiny punt today. Just have a feeling that there is actually a little more "recession" out there to be evidenced. let's face it, the market for manuals is for vehicles that are outside the warranty. And there are plenty of tasks that can be undertaken by amateurs with correct tools and a step by step manual. After all, it is what I used 30 odd years ago to keep my car on the road when the majority of problems were traced either to faulty points, tappets that needed adjustment or routine oil changes.

Touching £2 again today - but with spread of 5% is a bit meaningless. 2 yr high , but will it sustain?

I still service my car - you are right that the computer diagnostics are a no-go area , but you don't need them for a service , nor for replacement of most parts other than engine management . Timing belt is similar to 30 yrs ago for example. The bigger problem for Haynes is that it is cheap to get the manufacturers maintenance guide copied onto a couple of CDs from ebay.

Results out today. Revenue falls are getting really serious. I do like Haynes as a company (maybe its the petrol head in me!) and think they are doing all the right things. The problem though is that people don't try and mend things these days. My car is a computer with a massive hard drive, twin turbo's and just about every other gadget you could wish - instruction manual or not, there is no way that anyone could fix it other than take it to a BMW dealership. That's the real world of new cars these days. I do think Haynes is becoming a bit of a hobbyist sideline niche player. They need to be big on selling to dealers, but do BMW, Mercedes, etc. actually buy from Haynes... I suspect not! Does anyone know much about the digital side? It is growing, but not quickly enough to compensate for the rest of the business falling off the side of a cliff. I've sold most of mine before the dividend cut, but still have a very small holding to retain an interest. I will not be adding until there is some prospect of getting revenues back to £30m+. It's a very simple gauge, but investing in businesses which can't grow revenue is always a long term mistake. I would love to see Haynes succeed by the way!

exactly this is what has always made me very weary of investing in Haynes I notice in the past that different financial websites give different market caps for Haynes, based on two totally differnt values for the true number of shares in circulation if you are aware of this and it dosen't bother you, fair enough but you have been warned

The Report & Accounts should detail the rights of each class. It is common for a computerised analysis to ignore unquoted classes and thus produce totally misleading eps figures. This never happened in the days of human analysts ! In my view, if an issue of unquoted high-voting shares trigger a dilution on a take-over bid (ie. less dosh being payable to the lower-voting shareholders) then full dilution should be assumed on all calculations.

As you say ; The Haynes family own about 9 Million Benificiary A shares and another 8 Million Non-Ben A shares as well as their ordinary shares. Not clear whether divis paid on these shares . I wasn't aware of this - rather makes a farce out of the per share analysis . Glad I don't have many of these , though the yield remains impressive but only just covered using the Ordinary shares numbers ( so presumably no dividends paid on the A shares , a vehicle for maintaining control against takeovers?)

This stock has a dual share structure. Ordinary shares and A shares I think from memory. The actual true eps is much lower than the one you see often quoted. And the true market cap is much higher than the figures usually given by various websites. If you think I am wrong please show on here where I am wrong.

What's the forecast eps here at the moment (I mean taking into account ALL of the shares in circulation and not just some of them )

Haynes have just bought another paper manual publisher. The MMs have marked up a few pence - on no trades yet. Or is buying another outdated publishing mode flogging a dying horse?
