I made a tongue in cheek reference to the buffet last year, but you couldn't call the Halstead spread sumptuous, fish goujons are just about the highlight, along with the smallest sausage rolls known to man. The attendance was noticeably larger this year, maybe people were seduced by the prospect of the cheeseboard......

Half a dozen chicken runners - must make a date for December next year. I thought the days of corporate AGM hospitality were long gone. Best one around used to be Dobson Park at the Midland - a quiet invite from Jim Francis to those in the know to slip into the next room for the sit down! Happy days.

Chairman's Statement to the Annual General Meeting James Halstead plc, the commercial flooring company, will hold its AGM today at 12.00 noon at which the Chairman, Mr Geoffrey Halstead, will make the following statement: As is customary, I would like to give you an update on trading now that we are five months into the current financial year. In the UK the general economic climate continues to be fragile and spending patterns of end users appear cautious but I can report that for the 5 months of this current year our sales in this country are about 4% ahead of last year. In addition, the greater part of our business trades globally and overseas we continue to achieve record sales. Turnover for the first half of our financial year can be expected to be at record levels. In addition, we have seen some respite from the constant upward trend in raw material prices and a degree of amelioration in availability and I can be confident of profits growth and another record half year. Indeed the combination of raw material prices and exchange rates suggests profits will grow faster than the rate of sales if the situation continues. The uncertainties of government spending in parts of Europe and the UK, the ongoing debt crises and the questions over the Euro lead us to remain vigilant. Notwithstanding this, as I look around our businesses we are in robust health and should continue to progress. I joined the Board of this company at the AGM in 1962, at a time when our annual turnover was below the level of what today is sold in a week and it is time for me to take a step back. I have acted as Executive Chairman for the last decade and will continue on the Board but as Non-executive Chairman. http://uk.advfn.com/p.php?pid=nmona&article=50269611&symbol=lse%3Ajhd

42% against my guess of 65% - what do I know!! Bda's right: JHD should have done 5% capped at £11m. A learning curve for one and all.

Yes bda, you are correct in my miscalculation, and agree to your circa 42%.

Glad they didn't have to pay too much for them.If the sellers had been cynical , they could have bumped up the price by buying on low volume during the 5 day period.Perhaps they did. But they could have sold them for more a few months ago.

The take up was 41.7%!!!! ie 1,087,064 /((103,178,794+1,087,064)*2.5%). You are making the error of thinking that the £ 11 million cap comes into play butit was obvious that not everyone would apply. Had they done so the £ 12.35 million (being 2.5% of the share capital at the offer price )would have been capped - it wasn't so those that did apply got 12.35/11 or 12% more than their fair (ie 100% tendered)share. If the offer had been for 5% of the shares then the 41.7% would have got £ 10.3 million. I think that they should have tendered more !!!!!And the great thing is it puts the share price up because there are fewer shares. Makes you wonder why they didn't do 5% capped at £11 million Bet we see more of these.

Thought it was 2.5% of holding, not 25%. Maybe the broker has lost the point!! LOL

If the average mid price has been about 455p, it will give a distribution price of 477.75p. (+22.75p). I would hope that the share price will be above this level(not saying it will immediately)in the short term if shares are taken out of circulation. I would be entitled to £xxx, no dealing costs, and of course, it's not to be sniffed at, but as a long term holder, I see that the short term loss of the money will be a good decision longer term in respect of a higher share price and higher dividends. We can only wait and see.
