Positive looking results today but share price suggests that the market was not impressed and closed where it opened.

Certainly is a nice acquisition and eliminates a main regional competitor. Those holders who bought in back in the dark days, well done. Unfortunately I didn't.

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.

Investec said in a note the stock continues to look good value and noted its core textile rental business was the standout performer.

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.
