THe Viking may now be realising in many respects that the Salmond connection is the kiss of death

Yes: absolutely right. There is no end of things that they should be doing. Assume that they are locked in negotiations with advisers and bondholders in order to refinance the debt. But where is the Viking? He has been very quiet over the last month or so: no assault in the press and no further request for a meeting to oust the Chair(wo)man and appoint his own nominees. Given he is the leading shareholder I can't imagine that he's gone away and we can only speculate as to what he is up to. Really odd shareprice movements on no news. This is going to come to a head over the course of the next few months and it will be a wild ride!

They should be selling titles and using their cash pile to buy back debt at a discount.

It seems perverse that shareholders can't replace a board that is failing.If this activist is still interested the best thing he could do is to buy up any finance and call it in.

A new low today can’t understand why they don’t ditch the expensive management.

I ask again, who in their right mind is going to loan £220m to JPR?

As for the i ebitda I hope he's not charging costs for content to the local newspapers as a way of inflating the profit.

Cashley has taken out 550k on average in last two years. That’s 5pc of the JP market cap !Not aware of a single share purchase.

I fear the worst AH has a track record of shareholder value destruction. I cannot believe he’s on +£500k for being a complete failure.

I've started slowly buying back in as I can see this coming to a resolution early next year.Any kind of refinancing should see a break upwards in the JPR share price.

Interesting Article but only in that it revives the real narrative that was being lost again.We have to remember that Highfield really has no answers he is no original thinker not an entrepreneur he clearly has no ideaAbout shareholder value a Director a CEO who sees the value of his company fall to a penny share and accepts as if its quite normal no mea culpas here or any shade of.

Cashley having a whinge in today's Times: yawn. That said D-day seems to be getting closer and if what he says is to be believed then it appears as though they have been getting on with the re-finance. Over to you Mr Viking... Johnston Press boss hits back at ‘unhelpfulR17; attacks The boardroom battle at Johnston Press has left the newspaper publisher struggling to recruit new journalists and to reassure readers, advertisers and staff over its future, its chief executive has claimed. Ashley Highfield said that a campaign by Custos Group, the “disruptive investor” that holds a 20 per cent stake in the company, to sack the management and install Alex Salmond, the former Scottish first minister, as chairman had been “really unhelpful”. The media group behind newspapers such as the i, The Scotsman and The Yorkshire Post saw off an attempted coup by Custos and Christen Ager-Hanssen, the Norwegian millionaire at the helm of the investment group, last month, but that is unlikely to be the end of the matter. Custos has said that it will try again imminently. In the meantime, both sides are embroiled in a war of words. Mr Ager-Hanssen has repeatedly attacked the Johnson Press leadership, accusing Mr Highfield and his colleagues of “doing no more than rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic”. Mr Highfield, in turn, said that Mr Salmond was “potentially a highly divisive character”, having led the 2014 Scottish independence campaign, and questioned calls for Steve Auckland, the former boss of Evgeny Lebedev’s ESI Media stable, to replace him as chief executive at Johnston Press. He argued that the i had been “somewhat unloved” under Mr Auckland and Mr Lebedev, its former Russian owner, before it was bought by Johnston Press for £24 million. “I’m thick-skinned enough that I take this as part of the job,” Mr Highfield, 52, said of the turmoil, “but I don’t like it when I start to see it impacting the business, either causing staff uncertainty, or difficulty in hiring, or advertisers and readers telling us they’re going to stop taking the papers.” Mr Ager-Hanssen disputed that claim last night, alleging that “so many people at Johnston Press believe Ashley’s management is terrible”. Mr Auckland insisted that it was “certainly not the case” that the i had been neglected on his watch. At the centre of the dispute is a company boasting more than 200 local and regional newspaper titles that is battling declining print audiences and debts that have dragged its market value from £1.5 billion to below £14 million in 13 years. Mr Highfield predicted that Johnston Press would renegotiate a crucial £220 million debt with lenders within months. However, asked whether, should talks break down, the company would be able to pay off the bond by the June 2019 deadline, he replied: “No, we’re not.” Should it fail to pay on time, Johnston Press will fall into the hands of its lenders. Mr Highfield said that there was a “more than realistic chance” that a refinancing of the debt would be thrashed out “in a matter of months, rather than years”. Any agreement will need to satisfy the bondholders, pension trustees and investors — including Mr Ager-Hanssen. “It’s probably not surprising that there’s a lot of noise right now, because we’re at five minutes to midnight on getting a deal,” Mr Highfield said, “and that’s probably the point at which people see whether there’s an angle.”

I would put it to the fee sucker, that rather than buying the dead (for good reason) I, that rather he should have used the proceeds from the sale of our assets to repurchase bonds that at the time were 36P and costing the co 8% interest a year!!!!!!!!!!! That alone would have guaranteed a risk free-return on that investment of over 200% in just 5 years. Easily dwarfing without any effort or risk whatsoever the pseudo fanfare of the little tiny insignificant i. But no, the north London bubble liberal metro pretend champagne troski's, must bring back the beloved independent! You would bet your left arm the first thing this JPR parasite does is read the guardian every morning! Pathetic!

Cashley is mainly bonused on Ebitda and Strategic objectives. Presumably the latter relates to the I. That is why this statement has been put out

Dandy, I honestly don't think it's going to serve any purpose whatsoever me setting out to you that a paper with a STABLE circulation of just 266k is not going to repay 220 million in debt or clear a huge pension deficit, nor may i add is 266k readers worth 180 million quid ffs! But like i said already ;- good luck! *edit* trades so far on the fee suckers 'great news' rns 2 sales.

Completely ignoring the rest of the business just to focus on the i is pathetic. Change of management desperately needed.
