Look interesting. HRN one of those hobbies that might be getting popular with social media. Small regular purchases is what it needs, then it can be the next GAW. Here's an example of a youtuber that is the HRN free marketing arm https://www.youtube.com/user/MrSamsTrains/videos

Well the share price is well supported, so the Wizardry of The Hogwarts Express must be doing the trick and is Scalextric making a comeback as well? Harry Potter maybe the magic Hornby was missing.

sales are picking up slightly as hornby have added new toys to there range , i believe they have the rights to make and sell the harry potter parafanalia , along with some of the marvel comics stuff , also a new range of robust corgi kiddies cars called " chunkies" at a very reasonable £7 a pop that are much better than there dinky car range , they no longer offer massive discounts on there stock , not to mention they have got rid of alot of dead wood in there offices which must eventually help the bottom line , will all this turn hornby around ? indeed it is a good start , and they certainly need to add more things like this to kick start a real turn around ,strongly believe left to there tired old train set and scalextric cars that have been decimated by the digital age they will go bust sooner rather than later --

While the company is loss making, it seems to me from the RNS that having stated that sales were lower in H1 - it suggests that sales were at least as good as the previous year in H2,if not better and at improved margins. So it may well be that things are turning around for the better but in view of the High Street woes at present I doubt that there will be much to celebrate in the coming year. So imo the stock is still well over valued at this time.

Margins are improving and losses are significantly less than previous year. It appears that the new management are finally putting a stop to the rot.

Well I bought and sold for a small profit. Could be something here but phoenix may as well have bought the co. Surely this shouldn't even be listed.

Looked into these in more detail, not sure how investable they are with Phoenix owning that much of the shares?

Last rescue raiseD funds putting Phoenix in even deeper than they already were . Its a profitable business run properly , back in 2008 they had eight million in tne bank , this is where it went really wrong and something the programme failed to delve into . They blew most of it buying Corgi , who were going bust at the time , rather than wait and pick up the pieces they wrote the cheque , at the same time the opportunity to buy their production factory in China arose , they didnt and their main competitor bought it instead , Q years of problems compounded by loonies in the management asylum .

Directors have purchased a fair few so its in their interests to turn things around. How are they cash positive? Did they have a rights issue or sell some land previously?

Yes, I wonder what proportion of annual sales results from orders made in the first two weeks after launch... and whether it was actually double last year...or say 1.8x or perhaps 2.2x. Whatever, I guess they needed a good ending for the documentary but strange HRN did not also formally update the market on this or the value destruction on the mould front (or have they done this previously).

The bit in the first programme about previous management putting many train moulds, each costing circa £100k, in a skip sounded unbelievably incompetent.

Thank you Nick. I'll watch it after work. If doubling of orders is true, then the share price should break out of the 3-year range pretty sharpish.

I am wondering how they can note on a TV programme that they have taken in double the value of orders from last year but not actually bother to have a sales update to the market .

Have to say it is more a 'love thing' than money. Life is more than lowly investment. But wish the company well and healthy profits

Being half asleep I posted this on another thread rather than the main one here , just for info really . I suspect there are a couple of reasons for no update so far , one the cost base has been reduced to such an extent that there are not sufficient bodies to take care of the admin, which has co-incided with an increase in volume of orders because of reversion to inviting customers down to Margate and input from the various annual trade toy fairs.

But HOLTS are the changes sufficient to return the company to profitability? Thanks.
