Also they would be able to soak the markets/shareholders for more cash to burn, these cold winter's nights

Kier could buy Midas, must have some shirt buttons somewhere, might as well add some staff, save them recruiting, if you add in Tilbury douglas staff, they have roughly 900 of the 1100 extra bodies the want,

hxxps://www.cityam.com/construction-giant-midas-confirms-intentions-to-appoint-administrator-after-tumultuous-year/ More construction firms could fail for a combination of reasons cited by Midas and others. For those firms left after the carnage of Covid19 margins might improve over time but the road of recovery is going to be affected by BoE.

I reckon the share price will stay under 100p now. Who wants to own a £450m valued builder, who still hasn't managed to generate any cash for well over 5 years. No chance of a dividend, negative tangible net assets (so you are buying nothing with a kier share), this is still a charity investment.It is supported because infrastructure is important to government plans. Not because it's a good investment.

As a watcher of construction, and with knowledge of the south of the UK, the woes of Midas have not been good for approximately 3 years and have got really bad in the last 8 months, the whole of construction is broken, with pricing work, especially in the current marketplace, unfortunately no firms are immune. I wouldn't be surprised if Bovis/vistry don't come for midas as their CEO is an ex midas employee, and they have 3 slots on apparently very good framework. Note a lot of the private housebuilders are also now taking on framework/social housing contracts, as this can future proof them if a downturn/the R word

If you look at UK economy, we have high inflation, energy bills going up, higher taxation and BoE playing catchup. The squeeze, if badly managed, could result in fewer homes being constructed, higher unemployment, less taxation recovered by HMRC , resulting in HMG cutting back on its capital spending.

The Construction Enquirer reports on a contractor facing problems dealing with: labour and material shortages, inflation, Covid19, Brexit affecting marg. All the above must be affecting other firms?

hxxps://www.constructionenquirer.com/2022/01/26/forterra-hikes-brick-prices-by-10-with-more-rises-to-come/ Hiking prices by 10% + with promise of more hikes to come can only deter new building work ?

Even if you build with approved materials the new rule is cost of remedial work is down to owners/developers and builders. The situation cannot be construction firms bearing the risk or cost if materials are found wanting.

The next two weeks BoE and Fed Reserve are meeting to set their respective interesr rate. Firms with debt are going to feel it with higher bank cost. It might pay for K to do another rights issue rather than pay too much out in interest payments?

hxxps://www.constructionenquirer.com/2022/01/23/gove-threatens-ban-on-cladding-suppliers-failing-to-pay-for-retrofits/ I think those who misled the customer over the specification of cladding should pay in full for their actions. Similarly the energy firms that collapsed- shareholders; farmers should be independent rather than on grants from taxpayers. How many construction firms go bust and are not bailed out by HMG? This Government needs to apply one rule - no farm grants, no bailouts, subject to proven misrepresentation, remedial cost stays with the firms and not the industry in general

I think £50 on top of a tonne of steel isn't too bad, when I consider steel prices TRIPLED between Oct 2020 and Oct 2021. Considering businesses don't have the energy price cap, and the price per therm is still very high (185 when I just looked against a 5 year average of 50) and steel needs a LOT of energy, it doesn't seem so bile creating as the previous hikes that were all demand/supply driven.

Zico, what of what I wrote do you find to be a misrepresentation? If you need help remembering what your posts edited to "." were before you edited them then I'd imagine ADVFN would be able to help with that, if there were any significant legal reason.

Thanks for the explanation on 04/20 too. Basically it says, pay suppliers quickly, which is why they've maintained the 34 avg payment period (which is very quick by construction standards). Anyway, given that most businesses have been crushed by covid and its outcomes like inflation and labour shortages, Kier seems to be doing well. Davies traditionally immediately broadcasts any bad news, so things look good, especially considering the circumstances. Looking fwd to seeing the full numbers. Also, I'd like to hear more about Tilbury Douglas, but it looks as though we'll have to rely on skynews for that. Last time, from memory, I think they were about two weeks ahead of the official news. I look fwd to hearing about a mostly all-share deal or no deal.

He's very bitter peter. I think we eventually decided that sicko was a disturbed former Kier middle manager who'd been sacked for something embarrassing. He used to have an obsession with posting on here, and as you've said, writing libellous nonsense and then deleting it a couple of days later. Evidently his mental illness has not abated. Hi sicko!! How's the security hut these days?

Hi Zico, I know you sometimes accidentally lose your old posts so I'll help keep this one around for you: I would not like to think you were ashamed of posting potentially illegal content now would I? To anyone passing by Zico, has repeatedly posted and edited away such claims on here on a regular basis. If what he is posting is true then he is privy to insider information that should be disclosed in the correct way. If it is not true then it is a malicious attempt to manipulate the market.
