davidosh: Just out of interest....Did only those who held on until now get the dividend? From the AR... T he Directors have proposed paying a dividend of 0.52p per share in relation to the current year (2019: 0.47p per share). If approved, the dividend will be paid on 16 October 2020 to shareholders on the register at 2 October 2020. The corresponding ex-dividend date is 1 October 2020.
davidosh: The offer document states that the largest shareholder has given a hard irrevocable undertaking to accept the Harwood bid. That practically seals the deal for the bidder as it cannot be changed for any potential competing offer that could have been made once other parties were aware that HML was to be sold. At APC another company where I held shares and Harwood came in a year ago to take it off market in a similar way it was different... The irrevocable undertaking there was soft .....Importantly the Chairman of APC had a Private Equity background & I’m sure sounded out the market to determine if the price was fair. Also, the irrevocable undertakings ONLY provided a lock-in for the Harwood bid up to 11p. If a competing bid had materialised 10% above the 10p level the undertakings would no longer be binding & the large shareholders would have been free to accept a higher offer. Even then investors stated 'So overall I’m disappointed to be waving goodbye to APC in this manner, especially after investing so much time & energy in researching, reviewing & meeting the APC team during the last few years.' The same is true here.....So why did the chairman and largest shareholder via LTC give a hard irrevocable without testing the market to see if a higher bid was likely to be forthcoming? It is not difficult to see a 10% higher bid coming forward if it had been an open market but this was closed off from the start.... This is destroying value potential for the 50% or so of smaller individual shareholders IMO and the independent non execs should have questioned this.
graham1ty: Very few comments. No one really cares about HMLH.......
stemis: Well I think this says everything about management's faith in their ability to deliver shareholder value that they've accepted a price which is little more than the share traded at pre covid. Buckets of acquisitions for no real benefit; no accreditive margin, no economies of scale, running merely to stand still. Buying turnover to give the impression of growth. Needing putting of it's misery but exploiting covid weakness in the share price to do it for such a paltry sum is as cynical as it gets...
davidosh: Management bought most of the businesses when the HMLH share price was in the 33p to 45p price range so how can they justify selling at 37p?
graham1ty: HMLH have always paid a stonking multiple of revenue for acquisitions. Over seven years they have paid, on average, 1.4x revenue. Every time they are challenged, they just say that is what they have to pay. Unquestioning. And themselves ? Sold out for 0.6x revenue ( £19m / £31m revenue). So,,that is alright then ?
graham1ty: Another low ball bid from Chris Mills. And the unambitious, incompetents who run HMLH have recommended it. The share price has been in the range 30p - 40p for seven years, and first hit 37.5p in 2013, so not progress for shareholders in seven years. Thoroughly depressing
rivaldo: Yep, very frustrating. The 4.4p EPS just shows as a minimum what the business could be earning if it were run efficiently. As it is, shareholders are in for another hiatus as HMLH will have been damaged by COVID-19, and there will likely be a reduction in earnings large enough to probably render the current share price reasonable unless HMLH can turn its performance around quickly post-lockdown.
graham1ty: They seem to boast about the fifty ( yes, 50) acquisitions they have made. I thought my list of 34 since 2006 was comprehensive: obviously not. BUT the ones I do know about, total a cost of £19.77m. Yup, just shy of £20m. And the market cap, at 25p ? £11.5m, so massive destruction of value. And the share price, after its IPO in 2006, for most of that year 2006 ? Between 30-36p. So shareholders have done appallingly. Some may have been lucky to buy in the dog days when it was down at 10p in the about 2009-2010. But many will have bought in the period 2014-19, most of which was in the 30s. Probably most people are out of the money with this share. Where is the urgency ? Where the desire to attack costs and restore margins ? Where the need to get a return for shareholders ?
graham1ty: Rob Plumb retires with 820,000 options presumably to be abandoned, as all out of the money. The 2014 options have an exercise price of 33p, which shows what the share price has done over five years ( down if you had not noticed). The 2015s were at 41p, 2016s at 32p, 2017s at 36p and 2018s at 33.5p. He has 190,000 options from 2013 exercisable at 15.25p. So, at 32p they are worth about £30,000. Not much of a return from options issued over almost a seven year period. His shares are worth a short £ million. Obviously if the share price was 60p he would have £2 million. But it isn’t.
