How does one buy shares in Likewise? Can’t see them listed anywhere...

Indeed, cant be discounted and appreciate the inside view.

Well you can see why they called it "Likewise" - they're all ex-Headlam! It's not clear from their IPO whether they've set themselves up to "chip away" at their previous employer or follow Headlam's model of hoovering up smaller players who still make up over 50% of the market. Interesting info, though.

Appreciate the view, many thanks. Strongly disagreed with the Domus acquisition, posted here at the time it looked a top of the cycle buy. I thought smaller competitors may be under severe pressure and Headlam may take share. Let's see.

To put some meat on the bones of my opinion (I do not work for or hold shares in any of these groups but am involved in the sector). In my experience I would say Likewise Group PLC (set up by ex senior Headlam management) and Carpet and Flooring have way outshone anything Headlam have done over the Covid period and perhaps unsurprisingly so have the smaller wholesalers. Headlam operate many flooring distribution businesses and most are operated on a "stand alone" basis but many of these businesses are closely located geographically and do much of the same operation to the same customer with individual back office and on the road sales reps. With the pressures the business must be feeling from the many new kids on the block chipping away at their huge operation they must be feeling the squeeze on sales and margin. Headlam are a really important player in the flooring distribution market but they are being attacked from so many sides. Just my opinion but thought would share!

Aye, I was wondering that. I can't imagine a less Covid-affected business; automated warehouses, single-driver vehicles. Sure, they're dependent on the housing market, but what (and who) are others doing better? And what "consolidation"? Begs more questions than it answers.

Can you elaborate on any of that?.

Will be interesting to see if Headlam can recover from the covid crisis without having to make fundamental changes that historically they have been slow to react to. In my experience they have not reacted to the recent issues as well as many of their competitors (some run by their former senior management). I think there will be some major consolidation coming if they are to bounce back.

This is a funny old share. I've held it for donkeys' years but it is not uncommon that it moves up or down 5/6% in a day. Maybe I should be trading it?!

A lot of their product comes from the Netherlands. If the UK is outside of the EU without a deal, do we have any guidance on what the tariffs may be on wood products?. Asking hoping someone may have some industry knowledge, thanks.

Might be an opportunity here at lower levels if we are leaving without a deal. That being said, this may be bid for at some stage.

A surprisingly positive AGM update from HEAD this morning. "Like-for-like revenue* increased by 3.1% and 5.8% in the UK and Continental Europe respectively against the same period in the prior year, resulting in an overall like-for-like revenue* increase of 3.5% in the Period against the soft comparatives of the prior year. In absolute terms, total revenue increased by 5.5% in the Period". Although they just hold management expectations for the year, with broker consensus forecasting a 0.6% drop in revenue, it is likely in my view that upgrades will be in the pipeline. https://www.investegate.co.uk/headlam-group-plc--head-/rns/agm-trading-update/201905240700030485A/

I note that the CEO and CFO have been awarded nearly £700k of nil-cost options based largely on Total Shareholder Return and increases in earnings per share. Well let's hope they do a bit better than the last couple of years! "The awards have been granted subject to performance conditions based on: (1) the Company's compound annual growth in Earnings Per Share ('EPS') over a three-year performance period starting with 2019 (as regards 80% of the Ordinary Shares subject to the award); and (2) the Company's Total Shareholder Return ('TSR') over that performance period relative to the TSRs of the constituents of the FTSE SmallCap Index (excluding investment trusts) (as regards 20% of the Ordinary Shares subject to the award). The awards are subject to a further underpin performance condition that the extent of vesting reflects the overall financial performance of the Company over the three-year performance period."

From memory, a lot of their product is imported through the Netherlands. If you are concerned or want some more information, it may be possible to speak with the CEO, Or just e-mail.

Notice Domus does not get a mention. The PE owners timed their exit to perfection as per, as I mentioned at the time.

Sorry for opening the Brexit Pandora's box! The varying replies confirm my point - it would just help to have a bit more concrete information to help investors judge the risks here. Many other companies manage this.

Ian, I must be imagining the fact that the UK is skirting recession atm. Or that two businesses in my local area have made people redundant, while opening offices in Dublin. Or that inward investment to the UK has collapsed. Inward investment is one of the foundations of future UK employment. Takes a while to show up in the stats, however notice the UK claimant count over the last 12 months. It's on a steadily rising trend.

They are a distributor, not a manufacturer, and have distribution companies/depots all over Europe which (like so many Brexit scare stories) will be almost entirely unaffected.

How can they provide guidance about their sales in Europe, if we have no idea what type of relationship we are going to have after Brexit? That's not Headlam's fault - thats the fault of our government.

They do themselves no favours by just the one glancing reference to Brexit deep in the statement. For a company that sells so much in Europe they really should provide more guidance about their expectations for the next two years.
