2nd July 2015 Johnson Service Group PLC Pre-Close Trading Statement Prior to entering its close period ahead of reporting its Interim results for the six months to 30 June 2015, which are expected to be released on 2 September 2015, Johnson Service Group PLC (the 'Group') announces the following update on current trading. We will deliver a strong result for the first half of the year and expect the full year results for 2015 to be slightly ahead of expectations. The acquisition of the London Linen business, which was completed on 30 April 2015, is trading as expected and the integration into the wider Johnson textile business is successfully underway. Net debt was approximately GBP73.0 million at the 30 June 2015, slightly below management's expectations following the purchase of London Linen. Date: Thursday 02 Jul 2015 LONDON (ShareCast) - Investec held its 'buy' rating on Johnson Service Group and its target price of 100p, and said the stock was good value. Shares in the textile firm rose 4.35% to 90p at 15:05 on Thursday, after it said it expected its interim results to be ahead of expectations. Investec said in a note the stock continues to look good value and noted its core textile rental business was the standout performer. "We continue to believe there are other interesting opportunities in the wider textile rental market which looks to have solid growth prospects and a likely near term boost from the forthcoming Rugby World Cup," analysts said in a note. Investec made some small upgrades its full-year 2015 and full-year 2016 forecasts and predicted earnings per share would lift to 5.9p from 5.8p.
Not so steady any more...... Anyone there? LS
Just exercise some more patience, wad. I have no other share that just seems to steadily go up, if you stand back and look at the last five years graph. They seem to be doing the right things to grow. Good luck. LS
Unfortunately I paid about £5 for these so doubt I will ever see blue. Fortunately I didn't spend much!

Investec new target price 90p. LS
Results out, dividend hiked more than expected.....deafening silence! LS
Decent update this morning, slightly ahead, rental doing well and the planned closures of uneconomic outlets over the next couple of years plus the innovations siting service points in large office buildings or complexes sound like a management not resting on its laurels. I also hear that their Waitrose arrangement seems to be bedding down, at least in one area of the group, can't say for all.

Yes it's very sad and you can't take it with you, but it is possible to be benefit from being the richest corpse in the graveyard. I live in a small market town with a large Quaker involvement past and I can tell you that there are several active trusts that were set up still benefiting its residents hundreds of years after the deaths of these often unknown but great people. There is no excuse for bad management and excessive risk taking, jsg is a safe steady business, there was no excuse for what previous management did, they were wreck less with absolutely no regards to existing employees, customers and suppliers.
Enviro If you put your savings into company share schemes , you risk losing your job and your savings. Mind you , my Mum did no better ; she died the year she retired.

It may well do, but recover to original levels, not in our generation and of course dividends lost and income appreciation with inflation gone long long ago.
It looks like an investment that is coming back. It will take time but I believe that the share price will recover much more. Patience is needed. Ls
My mum worked for them for many years until her retirement in 2007. Being a prudent saver and investor for her future and families well being, she had built up a sizeable holding via the staff share save scheme. You can imagine how it must feel for her having seen virtually the entirety of her hard earned investment practically be entirely wiped out :(
Well done those of you who bought in the last few yrs - you have chosen well. Sadly I have held these about 10 yrs. I keep them on my monitor to remind me of the folly of some of my "investments". free stock charts from
