The trading environment remains extremely challenging, exacerbated in recent months by uncertainty around future paper costs and the impact of GDPR on digital advertising revenues. We expect to see continued pressure on revenues in the second half of the year, and a requirement for cost savings." 26/7/2018 "The Board of Directors of Johnston Press plc ("Johnston Press" or the "Company") notes the rise in the Company's share price today and confirms that it knows of no operational or corporate or other reason for the price movement." !YOUTUBEVIDEO:NxGxl-IbVFk:

With its current share price giving the company a market capitalisation of £3.9m, Swedish investor Christen Ager-Hanssen – whose Custos Group holds a 20% stake in Johnston – wrote to the board, in a letter seen by the Daily Telegraph, to address “speculation among investors” that the publisher could be placed into administration and sold on through a pre-packaged sale. He said legal action would be taken if the speculation was revealed to be true. The letter is understood by PrintWeek to be Ager-Hanssen’s first communication with Johnston since November last year. Ager-Hanssen wrote: “Of course, rumours swirling the market may be entirely false. But there are also rumours in the market that leaks have been made on purpose to manipulate the stock price to fall sharply which have as we know happened lately and damaged significant shareholder value. “I am concerned that market manipulation may be at play and/or that information may have been leaked specifically so as to enable a pre-packaged sale on terms not in the best interests of the company. “Please be aware, if formal insolvency and a sale of the business are in effect a serious game plan, my position and intervention must absolutely be considered.” Johnston Press confirmed receipt of Ager-Hanssen’s letter over the weekend and pledged to respond to him directly this week. The company urged its investor to present a “workable proposal” in order to refinance the business. One option floated by Johnston last month was to offload its pension scheme to the Pension Protection Fund, which would then hand control of the business over to its largest debtor – US hedge fund GoldenTree. However, no decision has been confirmed so far. In a statement, a Johnston Press spokesperson said: “In March 2017, we announced a strategic review of the financing options in relations to the £220m bond that is due for repayment in June 2019. “A number of potential strategic options are being considered by the company and its advisers which we expect to discuss with stakeholders in due course. We have updated the market on a number of occasions. No decisions have been taken and we are not going to comment on market speculation. “We announced in April that the business had EBITDA of £40.1m in 2017. It had cash at bank of £24.6m at the end of May. We announced on 5 June that the business was trading in line with expectations. “If Mr Ager-Hanssen does have a workable proposal to refinance the business, we look forward to receiving this and we will invite him to provide more detail.” Shares in Johnston Press have fallen at a steady rate since February 2015, when they stood at £1.72. The company’s peak came in April 2007 at £4.82 per share. In May, chief executive Ashley Highfield announced he would step down from the top job at Johnston Press after nearly seven years to become a non-executive director for “family reasons”. He is set to be replaced by his chief financial officer, David King. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

henchard: I wonder has the company noted its share price movement and is it aware of any reason for the price movement.

s1zematters: What we have witnessed here is a circus trick using smoke and mirrors. In my opinion, 'the cash' ignored the main fundamental problems of the group he was employed to fix, and instead deflected all the attention away from his failures by basically starting his new liberal-lefty newspaper. Then, once this tiny insignificant iota of the larger group enjoyed all the companies resources and effort behind it to ensure growth. it was then rolled out as the main focus in any RNS, results, press reports at the expense of the incumbent business failings! Looking at the share price under his tenure, he fooled no one in the city. The only sycophants singing his praise are surprise surprise, liberal-left journalists. Quite pathetic Really! AIMHO.

samdb: 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.

netcurtains: I have to say I agree with Maffa. For CA to make money on their investment the share price will need to be 50p or more (because when they sell the share price will fall - so price needs to be significantly higher than they paid - not just the odd penny or two)... The question is how does CA get the price to 50p and does Custos have the same plan? Who are the BIG debt owners? Who owns the debt? That is the part of the jigsaw that is missing. Are they the same people who are selling the shares?

mattab: http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2016-09-23/activist-said-to-seek-bond-restructuring-at-johnston-press I have sold crystalising a very healthy profit within a short timescale. Wishing all holders the best of luck. Seems CA are pushing for the bondholders to take a 30 per cent haircut. I recall the bondholder price as I think circa 50 per cent at the lowest was it MRX? The price has obviously moved up since the share price surge. Bondholders are highly likely to be far from impressed. Equity versus bondholders and JPR divestment awaiting news still on non core asset sales. It will be a race to sell and receive the monies from these sales to buy JPR bonds at the largest discount JPR with this in the public domain. The buyer(s) of the asset sales also know this and as JPR are looking to get a decent discount on the bonds will know JPR perhaps will accept low offers as JPR can get a discount with monies received on the bonds. The above news is nothing that is not in the public domain just that CA are wanting JPR to sell the non-core assets which JPR have already stated their intentions of anyway. This suggests to me that they are not locking horns and seem to be on the same side wanting the same strategy. Therefore they are not trying to oust AH and have a BID lined up in their strategy to force value, IMO which is why I sold and crystallised my profit selling into strength. Why couldn't JPR sell non core - total the monies received and buy the bonds back at a much steeper discount then inform the market that is what they have done? That would have a much more pronounced effect on the share price. It is kinda like playing poker with your hand shown at the table with all players knowing the full situation. Certainly value here for holders. Still awaiting RNS holdings but doubt CA will take their holding to 10 percent and force an EGM, think many new PIs in this at varying levels of recent weeks with the shifts, surges and pullbacks of the share price creating trading opportunities.

stdyeddy: So the answers are coming. Who is selling £150k of jpr a day? Revera Asset Management Limited. They appear to have paused today, so perhaps they're just limiting their exposure, but if we see large volume tomorrow/Monday, we might assume they're getting out altogether. They might have another £400k to go. What do they know? Well they've evidently taken a bad hit and probably lost more than half their stake. If they owned 5% of the business they've got an insider's view of what's going on and they don't see it getting better. They could be wrong, but as a major shareholder they've been able to pick up the phone to Ashley anytime and ask him why their investment is evaporating and what is he doing about it. I find it troubling that they don't like the answers enough to hang around. The next question is, who is buying apart from daz, mrsx and the handful of new correspondents here? (My coin-jar purchases are too small to count.) We don't see a pattern of stake-building do we, because the transactions are too small and varied. So is the answer, just us private investor chumps? Am worried about your takeover thesis at this point mrsx, because if there were ever a moment to be stake-building at jpr, now is it - one ii selling out and the price on the floor and sterling on the floor too. Next Jim Chisholm - this report of his has been getting a lot of coverage. Roy Greenslade has reprinted Chisholm's main points and I have to say they look hard to argue with, even if the details are partisan and selective. The last time I noticed Greenslade writing on jpr, he was too stupid to understand that a rights issue had depressed jpr's share price. Since then however, Ashley and co have managed to get the price back down to 17p post-consolidation 50 to 1. Greenslade can dust off his old piece on share price destruction and this time it'll stand up. Anyway, the main thrust of Chisholm's argument is that Ashley H and his team have performed poorly compared to their peers at Trinity and elsewhere, as evidenced by the slow growth of jpr's digital revenue and loss of quality in their news product, and that this has translated into devastating share performance. Well Ashley's team hasn't got everything wrong but on balance, I think Chisholm has a good point. Revera Asset Management must think he has about a million good points. So is this the beginning of a planned, concerted campaign to show that jpr's management team are rubbish and that a takeover at ANY price is what's needed to turn jpr around? And then the asset-strippers predicted by Mali walk in for 30p, sell off the i, Yorkshire Post, Scotsman and the printing presses to their friends, pay themselves huge salaries and bonuses, sell the hollowed out jpr trunk to a Dominic Chapell type chancer who sits on it for a few months and then folds it, and the bondholders get a few pennies in the pound back and the shareholders get nothing? Or is it simply that jpr's management team ARE rubbish and somebody's said so in writing? Or is it something else? I'm looking at that empty jar in my kitchen and wondering if it'll ever be full again.
