Pre-close Trading Statement "On track for another record performance" James Halstead plc, the commercial flooring manufacturer and distributor, is providing the following trading update prior to entering the close period ahead of its results for the year to 30 June 2012. In its interim results statement issued on 29 March 2012, the Company reported first half year trading was very solid with record revenue and record profit. In addition, the Chairman, Mr. Geoffrey Halstead expressed confidence that the Company's performance would continue in a similar vein for the rest of the financial year. Overall, this confidence was well founded and the Company has continued to trade solidly in very difficult global conditions. Taking the above into consideration the Board is confident that the Company will report another year of record revenue and record profits for the year ended 30 June 2012, in line with market expectations.

Must have been the time they were 504.5p on the offer. There was one parcel of 600 shares, which someone snaffled from under my feet! As my broker was about to lock in, they were bought by someone else and the offer shot up to 540p!! Ah well.

Only a couple of weeks ago, the Offer price was down to about £5.00 very briefly and I missed the opportunity to get in for a few more. I regret that now, although I suppose it depends what the pre-close statement tells us.

I feel sure that the "new" plant will play a very important part in JHD future growth. I'd be really interested to know what kind of potential capacity increase it gives the company, at what looks like a very modest investment cost. I understand that the capacity at Riverside is something like 20 million m2. I have no idea what the Whitefield plant can make, but at £200 million turnover, at say £10m2 average, that's 20 million m2 as well. I have no idea whather £10m2 is right, it may be high, just a guess, anybody with a better idea? Anyway, it's a very significant increase in capacity, which would have been impossible at Whitefield and much cheaper than starting from scratch somewhere else.

Talking to the chairman at the 2010 AGM, I believe it was circa £4m plus £2m to re-equip to JHD specification.

From the accounts it must have been about £6 m. It is on a 40 acre site and it started up in 3 weeks. Beyond smart its almost theft.

And they got it for a bargain price from, I think, Armstrong in the first place. Smart!

How about this from the Sanford Deland UK Buffettology Fund commentary last month: At launch, I certainly didn't foresee so hostile an economic environment. So I guess it's not surprising that a few investee companies, like Air Partner and Hornby, have succumbed to cautionary trading statements. Meanwhile, others in the portfolio sail majestically through troubled waters. Take James Halstead for example, on course for another record year. The Crombie overcoat of investment – never the height of fashion but it won't let you down in a storm (as 35 consecutive years of dividend increase and additional returns of surplus capital prove).

The Broker - Arden Partners recommends a buy, but they are the paid one. WHIreland has it as a buy with a target price of 600p. Thats optimistic.

Boring is good. Especially looking at other "defensive" shares over the past few years which have been dreadful.

By far my biggest holding. I've hung onto these for 10+ years now, and they have outperformed every attempt I have made at being nimble in and out of other holdings to boost annual returns. LTBH really does work!

These results have become rather predictable.Another record everything.Again. Only thing missing is a 50p special.We'll just have to settle for capital growth. What a star!

· Revenue increased to a record £117.7 million - an increase of 10.9% · Operating profit increased to a record £20.8 million - an increase of 13.2% · Pre-tax profit increased to a record £21.1 million - an increase of 14.1% · Basic earnings per ordinary share increased to a record 14.4p - an increase of 16.1% · Interim dividend increased to a record 5.0p - an increase of 11.1% · Net cash at £36.9m - an increase of 22.9% The Chief Executive, Mr Mark Halstead, commented: "Having, once again, achieved record profits in challenging conditions, I recall in 1995 Sir John Harvey-Jones described our company as having "consistency of aim and performance with results obtained highlighting sound management principles as much as spectacular growth." I can confirm that we continue to adhere to these principles."
