sicker. It’s not normal for me to find such service from the big companies. I was pleased with Screwfix that I had to post that. I’ve been in and out of KGF for over 1.5 years . Very happy with the performance of Screwfix and dissatisfied with B&Q . I don’t think Homebase’s problems will help Kingfisher Not holding now.

Today I had a delivery from Screwfix (a palet of paving stones). Ordering online could not have been simpler, I phoned the number on confirmation mail to get an update on delivery and a human been in U.K. answered on the first ring. They checked with the carrier and called back in 5 minutes . Then the company they source from called me to say when the delivery will be made. Then the carrier called to say it would be delivered before 4PM. When the delivery was not made by 4pm I called the company they source from and they arranged for a special delivery on a van from Ipswich. This is what I call service. Thank you Screwfix

Homebase sold for a nominal amount. Likely store closures, with KGF perhaps a main beneficiary.

Ed. That is an excellent idea. Big shed stores are over yes dump B&Q name . Bunnings had the right idea to change the name Homebase. I have tried B&Q stores and never liked service ,price or location. Screwfix on the other hand has excellent service,price and locations .

Whatsup32. Yes, I now agree they should never have done any buybacks. I confess that in the early days I thought it ok, but the continuing decline in trading has changed the picture for me. EI, activist investor? Hmmm .... Spin off of Screwfix? Not the way to go, for me, because the B&Q/Castorama problems would remain. Fwiw, I view the "ONE Kingfisher" plan as too little and bigged up. It should have been going on, anyway, and the costs should not have been recorded as exceptionals. They need to constantly make changes for the efficiency of the business because their competitors certainly will be. If I were CEO, I'd bite the bullet sooner, exit the big retail stores more quickly. When down to a smaller number (retaining the ones in key locations), I'd dump the B&Q name, rebrand to "Screwfix" and give the same Screwfix pricing in the remaining retail sheds. This rebranding and unification of product ranges would lower marketing and operating costs (like another stage of ONE Kingfisher) and they'd leverage Screwfix's success with online/click and collect into the retail shed subsector. At the moment, sadly, management are not being bold enough.

There may be an outside possibility of an activist investor getting involved and perhaps pushing for a Screwfix spin off? - just a thought.

Ed. They should not have done any buy backs never mind continuing. B&Q stores like M&S stores are too big for purpose. Wickes does a better job. Homebase maybe doing a come back with dowry money. Future does not look bright

Hi Ed, just wonder if the market is seeing longer term?, Possibly. Yes you have weather related, and the One KGF disruption, even so Castorama looks bleak. They now have a good chunk of unified range, and I assume some investment in lower prices (as per plan)- where is the subsequent sales uplift? ..

Agree, EssentialInvestor. The share price is holding up better than I'd expected too on reading this update. Some of this poor update will be due to the weather, but there is an continuing, underlying decline in B and Q and Castorama. B&Q and Castorama profit must be poor in H1, due to operational gearing. Imv, they should not be doing the share buybacks. Look at the cashflow statement for the last full year. The buybacks are only delaying the eventual share price fall, imo. Maybe that's what the shorters are onto? (Apologies to holders and, before anyone asks, I've not short sold them. Just watching.)

Surprised it's not lower, they have the last element of the buy back to come.

I'm not atm, update very mixed at best, Castorama performance looks particularly weak on that Q1.

Those with a short position got hurt on marks and Spencer’s today. If the results are half decent they may need to cover. Good luck tomorrow if you’re a holder

Upcoming update may not be great, might be a case of whether expectations are already low enough, or not.

Spent quite a bit on operational efficiency initiatives & unifying IT platforms along with reducing shares in issue,in turn has affected there health trend.Should start to feed through to better margins & cash flow overtime!!.

What struck me on the FY was cash balance reduction. If the reason given is valid- increase in stock levels for availability of new ranges, we should see some strong cash generation at H1. My take is KGF is at least worth watching.

If forecasters are to believed 2017/18 was the nadir,Revenues rising from here, 2019 £11.844bn,2020 £12.171bn,EPS 2019 25.4,2020 30.4p,2019 p/e 11.3,2020 p/e 9.47,however 2o17/18 final results were poor imo,margins were reduced to 4.5% after exceptional's ,cash flow was also negative.

I'm wary of reading too much in to this, however it might (if an optimist) suggest trading has not fallen off a cliff. Possible better France performance, perhaps.

Hi Joe, he also bought 100,000 shares late last year, just under £3, from memory. So that's 400K plus within a few months.
