simso: Thanks David, I will definitely aim to attend on 6th Feb. I spent a good part of yesterday reviewing the previous 10 years RNS and summarising the Financial Information therein. I certainly now have a better appreciation of the number of times a promising year of progress was quickly reversed the following year...usually excused in the RNS as being due to "forces beyond our control". The damage which two designer resignations did in 2014 was particularly long lasting and scary. In total over the last decade the Total Loss Before Tax was £750k, with six loss making years out of ten, and having spent £2.8m of Capex over the period. One of the most stark factors is how much the Gross Margin% has declined: In 2007 it was 61.5% and ten years later by 2016 it was 12% points lower at 49.7%. Much though some of the margin% degradation must to due to competitive pressures and the general environment of the last decade, it is nonethless sobering to thing that 12% points of margin lost on an annual sales base of £8.5m is c£1m of annual profit! On a positive note, the margin did recover by 1% point in 2017, and the EBITDA of £412k was the best since 2007's £414k. Net Cash of £909k in 2017 compared to Net Cash of £501k in 2007..and the share price back then was three times higher at 3.13p on publication of the 2007 Results. Lets hope with a different Team at the helm now, that the promising 2017 numbers convert to a more sustainable improvement and progress. I note from the last Annual Report that Freeholds (Factory and one showroom) had a cost value of £1.7m, and with 2% depreciation pa on the Buildings, had an NBV of £1.3m in the books. The vast majority of Freehold Value must be in the Factory, as the showroom was acquired for £150k during the last decade. Anybody with a view of fair value of the Factory Freehold?
davidosh: For the first time in a number of years the results and statement actually read like management know what they are doing and how they can realistically hit targets. The last management team were shockingly poor and whenever we questioned them at meetings and AGMs they gave little confidence that they knew how to improve and build the business. This is a vast improvement and looks very positive now for shareholders. They are actually generating cash now and it only takes a 5% improvement in sales and the current savings on costs to see £500k profit coming through....The share price could then double or triple depending on the optimism shown and potential for new stores opening in the London area would give an extra kick to sales revenue
adamb1978: Only had a handful of these but am now out at a loss; you dont have to make it back the same way you lost it after all. I had another look at the numbers and I dont see that their £10m turnover, 5% margin target by the end of 2016 (ie so really 2017) is achievable so really its 2018 or 2019 at best....and by then we'll have another recession and this isnt the most recession proof business either in terms of sector or its reducing cash pile. As mentioned above, in the short/medium term I dont see too much downside but cant see the share price getting moving - too small for many investors
adamb1978: So another year before the share price moves meaningfully again? Too much to hope for someone to take it out before then
adamb1978: Solid set of figures this morning - nothing break-neck however continued progress towards their £10m turnover target by 2016. Cant see Mr Market getting too excited by the results though so would imagine the share price will continue to bumble around at current levels
morwood: Great update and I see the share price has respond
cockneyrebel: GI - this doesn't need the daily share price up flick to keep its investors happy - up 200% in a year but frequently has long flat spots - probably because buyers can only get meaningful amounts when there's stock around, and that's rare. I have a load of thse pensioned, they are in there for a two to three year period until Mr Lewis gets an offer for his 60% from someone and I retire to the Seychelles. Share price is hardly up on the May interims that were excellent, sales at a record, H1 earnings a near record, cashflow rising strongly. New products hadn't even kicked in then either. Agree with Lord C. wholeheartedly. CR
pedrojack: CR...I want to build a stake in JLH but I am still building my stake up in CFE...Hoping for the JLH share price not to move much...
lord c.: Lord C.>>>PedroJack, If Jon Rosby acts like every other incoming MD he will throw as much bad news into his first, first half as possible. He must be judged on the finals when his real input will become apparent. The new (very impresive) product lines will have been properly exposed by then and his sales and marketing director should be proving her worth or otherwise. New guys usually spend shedloads of money - let's hope the JLH board have checked any mad impulses. I was really pleased by the 3p options - he has every incentive to get that share price up. Staff morale seems to be sky high in the shops I have visited. I still rate this share very highly and see them as a quality long term buy that should be purchased up to 3p before the interims are announced. What we really need is Chairman John Lewis to place part of his holding - then they will really motor. LC.
gerrit12:,,2015367,00.html John Lewis plans massive expansion Retail giant aims to double turnover with 10-year plan for store building and creation of 35,000 jobs Nick Mathiason Sunday February 18, 2007 The Observer John Lewis Partnership is embarking on a highly aggressive expansion strategy which will see the employee-owned business create 35,000 new jobs and double its turnover to £12bn. The plan is a major threat to rival department stores Debenhams and House of Fraser, which have enjoyed mixed fortunes recently. It will also pose serious questions to newly resurgent Marks and Spencer and Sainsbury's, which both chase the same upmarket food consumer. A 10-year business plan, signed off by the partnership board in recent days, will see the retail concern boost its total workforce to 100,000 by 2017. The plan envisages John Lewis significantly increasing its 26 department stores and 184 Waitrose supermarkets. ========================================= Will the share price shoot up on Monday at this news?
