one thing i'd add - the next CEO can't be worse than the previous one. reading through the transcripts of the analyst presentations, her answers are vague, evasive, and defensive.

agreed, but remember due to the £600m share buyback, the share count has been reduced by about 10%, making the dividend more affordable. obviously, because of the ongoing transformation costs of about £160m a year (falling to a projected £100-120m this year), and the massive build up of stock, cash generation has recently been poor. i haven't yet bought the shares, but i anticipate doing so soon. there is significant value in the stock IMO, i just hope the next CEO pursues a more shareholder friendly approach, and gets creative with the assets and more valuable business units.

Although the dividend is good the cover is poor.

it's not all bad here, £3.4bn of freehold property, minimal pension deficit and debt, and highly profitable and growing units in poland / romania, and screw fix, and finally, the nature of the goods they sell protect them from internet competition. the business in france is a disaster, and if you take into account the fact most of the property they trade from in france is freehold, it's not earning it's keep. IMO the business needs to be split up to release all of the value, though having spent hundreds of millions to try and integrate the different parts, it would take a decisive change in strategy.

!YOUTUBEVIDEO:ksfAAsmHV8E: Will Kingfisher announce a new CEO alongside its Q1 results next Wednesday? Though it saw a 13% plunge in underlying pre-tax profit to £693 million, March’s full year report was really notable for the changes to the firm’s long-running ONE Kingfisher transformation plan. Forced to abandon the target of a sustainable £500 million annual profit uplift by FY 2020/21, stating that it ‘no longer reflects’ how the business is managed, CEO Veronique Laury was given the boot, though her leaving date wasn’t announced. Any word on her successor may be the most sought-after piece of news on Wednesday. Beyond that, investors will specifically be looking for signs of improvement in Castorama given Kingfisher said it was ‘implementing a clear plan’ to turnaround the ailing brand. The progress of the extended rollout of Screwfix outlets in the UK and abroad will also be under the spotlight.

!YOUTUBEVIDEO:y0d4g3zrUZw: Will Kingfisher be screwed following Wednesday’s full year results? The company hasn’t updated since November’s third quarter results. There it revealed that, while it had eked out a 0.2% increase in group revenue on a reported basis, Q3 like-for-likes were actually down1.3% due to a 0.7% drop in the UK and Ireland, and a 3.4% slide in its persistently troubled French division. As for the full year, Kingfisher said that it expects to ‘grow gross margin after clearance in the UK, Poland and Brico Depot France’, but that the outlook for Castorama was ‘more uncertain given difficult trading’ and the impact of the ‘gilets jaunes’ demonstrations.

Management are adamant in selling the same items in same format in different countries. Won’t work and hasn’t worked. Different tastes , work environments, weather patterns and marketing. Screwfix is the pearl the rest a waste.

Problem is (imo) sector has far too many outlets selling virtually the same ranges and with very little differentiation between them - PLUS with the increasing complexity of regulations many jobs that could previously be done by any competent DIY'er now have to be contracted to a so called tradesman with sometimes a dodgy certificate of competence. Inestment wise I suspect that whole ssector will be under the cosh for a few years with more losers than winners -

Management must look back and admit in hindsight they made a massive mistake with the share buybacks.

I would assume this to be a scam, I too was offered £17 for my shares, and told them I would sell for £25. They said they would get back to me. KGF seems to be targeted on a yearly basis, if I remember correctly got the same call last year. :-)
