I am turning it down as:- I am not selling shares that can be about the 445p mark when I could have sold yesterday at 470p. Rather sell into the market at a price I like, not anticipating the averaged over 5 days price. 2.5% of my holding would not (for me) be worth selling. I am a long term holder anyway. I am sure smaller shareholders will not participate, and they would have preferred a special. (Sorry 50 percenters). Keeping my shares, I would hope the share price will increase, adding value to my holding, as should the dividends, with approximately 2.4m shares being taken out of circulation. EPS will also increase. IMHO.

£ 11 million spread across 100 million shares. is over 10p a share and its tax efficient. I have no idea why anyone would turn it down. Everyone likes an extra dividend. What hasn't helped has the 400,000 sahres cross at the bottom of the spread yesterday which undermined the initial uplift on the announcement. Hey I am sick of the extra tax on my dividends. I think its well worth a punt.

So , you can tender a maximum of 2.5% of your holding , to get a price of 105% of the average price for the prev 5 days .Doesn't sound very tempting to me , even if I had a huge holding!

From Tender circular : An individual Shareholder who tenders Shares to Altium pursuant to the Tender Offer should be treated, for the purposes of United Kingdom taxation of chargeable gains ("CGT"), as disposing of their shares. Provided that the Shares are held as a capital asset by the Shareholder, the sale will constitute a disposal for the purposes of CGT and, depending on the individual Shareholder's particular circumstances (including the availability of any exemptions, reliefs and allowable losses), a chargeable gain or an allowable loss could therefore arise for a Shareholder resident or ordinarily resident in the United Kingdom. The rate of capital gains tax for gains falling within the basic rate band will be subject to tax, currently at 18 per cent. For gains in excess of the basic rate band, the rate of tax is currently 28 per cent.

Looks straight foward to me. A distribution as CGT not income tax so use up tax free allowance and if you are a higher rate tax payer whoopee 28% instead of 50%

"Since the announcement of its preliminary results, the Company has continued to trade robustly, and in line with the Board's expectations." Sounds like they have too much cash swishing about. I guess the tender offer has to do with CGT instead of paying 50% tax on income?

Lost on me too - why not just buy-back on the open market? The 7.6% profit rise seems to be more important news to me.

Why would anyone other than mega shareholders want to tender 2.5% of their shares?! Unless I've misread it, there is no facility for small holders to tender any more.

Its about time we had a special. Surely the AGM will bring some news. I just hate the idea of the 50% tax rate on the dividends - is there no way round that short of leaving the country. Give me a tax fiddle someone

I was only joking about a 30p special dividend. I meant 40p .

IMHO 10p special would be the maximum, as 30p would all but take the cash in hand and at the bank, and JHD management are more prudent than that.

wad collector We all have to tighten our belts during these difficult times. Food at AGMs is preferable to the pies at Ewood Park. The fare offered at the McKay meeting at the Royal Yacht Club was excellent this year, and we got brilliant biscuits and coffee at the Fulcrum AGM. I attended what was possibly Pinewood's last AGM as a PLC.- more beverages and biscuits. Cineworld's AGM at the former Millenium Dome was held in the largest wide screen theatre in Europe. I expected at least some popcorn - but again it was a coffee and biscuit job - but I was given a free cinema ticket after the AGM. Will Halsteads be able to announce your suggested 30p special divi at the AGM? z

Is it true that you subsist entirely on the food of AGMs?

I like what Motley Fool said - a 35 year dividend machine. Or Investors Champion comment "forget commodities invest in Flooring". The Teesside plant is up and crawling wait till that gets swinging.

1) previous very generous valuation; 2) cautious comments (esp about the motorcycle division); 3) slowing eps growth over three years now; 4) build-up of stock; 5) lack of special dividend or other original plan. Having said all that it is probably fairly valued c 400p on about 15 times historic earnings.
