A couple of very large trades today, that is unusual for HRN & both being at 20p.

I can't believe people keep stumping up cash to keep this afloat, It must've blown enough cash to buy a real train in the last few years. There must be some really nostalgic fund managers out there.

I averaged down yesterday on a bit of residual stock I had forgotten about , at least a tight spread then , they are taking the micky with it today .

Stock looks to be in short supply, hence the rise on the small volume. If there was any sign of good news, I guess it could rocket. Big spread though.

Phoenix has 74.66% as of 07.12.18 - Today`s RNS - Artemis 12.42% = 87.08% plus add in a few other previously announced holdings that may still be holding, leaving little in general float. What would you consider a derisory offer. Bear in mind they raised £12m @ 29p not long ago, and some of it has been used to reduce debt - so the books might look better than one might imaging bearing in mind that the 2017/18 accounts are unlikely to show any benefit from the share of Oxford now owned. Maybe a big US toy company might like the Brands.

I have not looked at the holdings recently , 82 per cent and 12 certainly doesn't leave much but do you not think the only way out is to turn the business around because who would cough up ? Other than a derisory offer . Stranger things have happened .

It has taken the company three days since being notified of the increase in holdings by Artemis Investment Management LLP and on behalf of clients now holding over 12% of the stock, that it seems they held back the info until today's RNS was released.That now leaves very few floating shares in the company. Could there be another bid for the company on its way? Is Artemis still buying?

Having taken a look at the company retail websites, rather than sell direct they could place a link alongside each product that states BUY NOW but links to a choice of retailers websites - that stock the particular item in their bricks and mortar shop, with the best priced one always being at the top, so to ensure the customer gets the best value and encourage competition between retailers.

I may be wrong , but its not the discounting that was so much the problem , they offered product to everyone at a discount which was fair . The problem is that they were and still are competing with their own trade customers online even to the extent for example that a retailer could not buy or advanced order an item even though it was in stock or allocated unsold at hornby because the stock was allocated to their online shop . Why would a trader want to bother much with such a company ? Pricing , a piece of junk accessory is being sold by Hornby at £30.99 plus a switch needed £11.50 , so £42.50 Competitor manufacturer , who even has the cheek to give their item part nos Hbys sells the item for £5.95

Today's RNS is a shocker and leaves little to be said, other than hopefully the new policies will work in a reasonable period of time.

Humbrol is not a leader neither is Scalex any more , they attract business yes and as I said it makes sense for those to be there but they are not the money makers .

While Hornby Trains may not sell at Toy Fairs, other Brands like Humbrol as a leader in its field must generate considerable business, and I see Scalextric has new products for 2018, so there is scope for growth and a return to profit, if all the brands start to deliver under the new management. hTtps://www.scalextric.com/uk-en/

Clock , no , the toy fair has been a non starter as far as model railways are concerned for many years , non of the significant manufacturers now attend , Hornby dropped out of it one year realising this but returned as they had done away with the Margate visit at a similar time . For the remaining parts of the business it makes sense I suppose but I would like to see the numbers . I would guess Oxford were already booked in anyway , in reality to have them together would be an embarrassment , Corgi is so overpriced in comparison . There is the source of one of their two biggest problems , paying over 7 million for corgi , when at the time Oxford was able to and did sell to Hornby , Hornby were selling to the trade , the trade could sell to the public for the same price as standard Oxford retail, the product was good and massively cheaper than Corgi . So what does some genius at Hornby do ? Well buy corgi of course , blowing all the cash in the bank, everyone knew corgi were going bust and why would you do that when you already know someone could do it clearly far better and more cost effectively for you ? Staggering really.

Over 500k sell almost at bid which is somewhat of a surprise. Unusual volume, maybe another part to this transaction that we are yet to see.

Hornby showing at the Toy Fair at Olympia 23 Jan to 25th Jan - so if sales are good it is possible they might provide some feedback a short time after the show with luck. "HORNBY HOBBIES is an iconic British Company which represents the most famous brands within toy, model and hobby markets Worldwide. HORNBY, a household name, is famous as the UK brand in model railways. CORGI is a stalwart of the collector market and in 1965 was the first ever winner of the UK Toy Of The Year Award for its James Bond's Aston Martin DB5, the iconic car, the sales for which has reached over 15 million. SCALEXTRIC is another icon and began as a clockwork powered race car system first appearing in 1952. It has since developed into a range of products for those young and old. AIRFIX produces plastic model kits of military and civil aircraft, ships, cars, figures and military vehicles. In recent years Airfix has developed QUICKBUILD an innovative range of “No Glue” models, unique to its category. HUMBROL is the secret jewel in the Hornby Hobbies camp. Humbrol represents a “rainbow of colours” and provides the hobby world with the most comprehensive and largest selling collection of paints, brushes and accessories." What is also of interest is that to date the do not appear to have consolidated Oxford Diecast sales team with Hornby, as they are showing on a separate stand at the Toy Fair. One would have thought they could have made savings by streamlining the sales team and consolidating expenses in general. "Oxford Diecast is a British based business that produces accurate scale models that are collectable, gift and souvenir. We design and manufacture over 1000 different model cars, planes and trains. " Holts - I assume your are or were in the Trade - are you visiting the Fair?

It was less than two months ago that money was raised at 29.5p that would have put the company is a strong situation, one would have imagined - but look at where it is today and still sliding.

Certainly seems to have completely derailed but until we get some news as to how post Christmas orders have and are going, together with the news of how the recent changes have impacted the business the current drift in the share price is only due to the small amount of steady selling but all in all adding up to little in value. Anyone buying even 100k - £25k worth,could have a huge impact on the share price it would seem.

Hornby launch 2018 ranges on 08.01.2018 Hopefully lead to a lot of fresh orders from retailers to replace stock sold at Christmas. In addition they may get an increase in on-line sales from those that must have the latest. hTtps://www.facebook.com/officialhornby/photos/pb.53107985842.-2207520000.1515158804./10154997598415843/?type=3&theater If The New Team that are now in place can get this moving, confidence will return and the share price could shoot back up. The big change in fortunes is on the cards for HRN imo.

This seems a suspiciously low price for 49% of LCD so what we are getting for that will be interesting . Microlink industries became insolvent in 1997 so it may not all be perfection but LCD was split out of that at some point . As far as a market goes , there is still one out there but Hornby have lost their biggest advantage in it was the go to product on their main range , not anymore , stupid pricing and stupid decisions .

Looks like a great deal looking at Oxford Diecast Limited Accounts to 31.12.16 with Net assets having gone up almost 25% and return on Capital of around 27.5%. Clearly, the right person to lead the group.

Today's news provides a very positive message by way of obtaining 49% of LCD Enterprises, and funding at the closing price yesterday. Having taken a brief look at the deal and Lock-in arrangements, it looks like a win, win situation for all concerned. Seeing that Phoenix Asset Management Partners Ltd already own so much of the company, and are behind the deal, it is a forgone conclusion that the deal will be done on 5th Dec. This could take off once complete and delighted that all qualified shareholders can take part in the open offer.

clocktower: Thanks for the link - Maybe it played well in the reseach and very PC but not sure how well it communicates the generic message John Lewis for Toys - Gifts that brighten their world. Though has a significant number of hits -
