I made a lot of money on the old St Ives print business some years ago buying low simply for the dividend but then being able to sell unexpectedly high. Thereafter, I watched it collapse and thought about buying back at below 50p but didn't. Eventually having read about the people now involved I bought back in around 90p on the opinion that it could become an incredibly exciting story! I shall no doubt find out if I am right in about 3 years time but at the moment remain confident.

Yes, wait and see time still, for me. We'll have a better idea of the alcoholic content of the pudding in the eating of it... so to speak. I retain a reduced holding.

I may be sceptical, but have heard him speak, and he seems to know where he wants the business to be positioned, away from low margin, better quality earnings and totally digital, so at least he is being progressive. I think the company will rate higher when we see the fruits of his progress, most probably twelve months down the line, on the basis the global economy does not go pear-shaped!

bookbroker, edmundshaw , I think the net debt figure is fine. Tab had a loan note of 6.8 million which was exercisable after January so the net debt is in line with forecasts imo. There remains a final 2 million liability for y/e 2020 and that's it. TAB and Solstice have turned SIV around that is very good news going forward . I think with the transformation of the balance sheet and with profits going forward of around £20 million plus , the future is looking very good. I also think KCT will do a US accretive acquisition(approx £50million) in early 2020 and I expect the market will look very favourably on that. J Schwan and his team are doing a good job imo.

Thanks. That accounts for a debt rise of 16.5m, whereas net debt actually rose 14.2. And there is £2m earmarked for IT improvements which might have flowed out(?). So it seems there is underlying positive cashflow. The aim was debt/ebitda under 1x for 2020, so I guess that is easily doable now. Though there is £2m more to go on DAB... A bit of explanation in these statements might help!

Looks like the TAB payment subsequent to previous year end driven up net debt! Maybe!

Poor statement, net debt rising again, sale of warehouse positive as held on books for a few million less when last referred to, but is Schwan up to the job!

Time we had a trading statement, that’s if J.Schwan still in the land of the living, he is good at promoting his business interests, so let’s have some news!

Would this be a target for Sorrel's new venture?

Nice timing by non-execs in share purchases, ok narrow window, but the fall here is ridiculous, above poster too bearish, worth reading but why slate the company for reducing risk by selling low margin businesses which are non-core. Past disappointment should be seen as a result of changing face of direct media!

After disposing of their less valuable assets, Kin and Carta appear ready for a recovery. Debt is down to £40m from £80m and pension deficits got eliminated should support equity valuation. But, I believe this should be a speculative purchase given their past disappointment. I recommend investing in this company with a margin of safety in mind. So, a target valuation of under £100m worth the risk and reward. To read more, here the link http://bit.ly/2CGLNnx

Added this stock now St Ives no more, and the somewhat contentiously re-named Kin and Carta replacing the aforementioned. Found it bizarre that the stock marked down initially on the basis of being reborn in another guise, and now even more surprised that this has continued despite fair results distorted by exceptionals relating to the original business, and goodwill relating to Hive. But feel more prudent to focus on the future, which looks increasingly bright in the digital arena, just got to hope that investors view J. Schwan in the same light eventually!
