Good rise today; I thought the results were pretty bad, the only bright spot being the "medium term outlook". Not sure how they can predict that when nobody else can; short-term order intake looked poor (though helped a little on currency conversion).

http://www.rte.ie/business/2009/0424/presswatch.html SMART OWNER SEEKS BUYER OR PARTNER - The Irish Times says Cavan-based businessman Brendan Murtagh has engaged advisers to find a buyer or strategic partner for Smart Telecom, the Dublin-based telecoms firm he controls. The paper says Mr Murtagh has engaged British corporate financier Collins Stewart, which opened an office here last year, to assess its strategic options. The Irish Times says the businessman is prepared to sell all or part of the business and will also consider possible merger or joint venture opportunities for some or all of the business in an attempt to generate some value from the company. The paper says a number of leading telecoms and media groups have been contacted in relation to the process, including Magnet Networks, Digiweb, UPC Ireland, Sky and some of the mobile phone operators.

No sense in recent rises other than to relieve pressure on Directors due to looan guarantees.Activity in new construction in UK is non existent......This company will struggle to keep within its bank covenants.Calling in of Directors guarantees will decimate the share price....

Many businesses are in danger of being dragged down by their owners' personal debts according to Brendan Waters of Mazars. http://www.fxcentre.com/news.asp?2376570 http://www.businessandfinance.ie/whoswho09/brendan_murtagh.html Murtagh first became involved with Howard Holdings in 1998. He spotted the opportunity that was available to the company, and now he is a 40% shareholder and a non-executive director. The company is involved in €4bn of developments across Europe, not least of which is the giant Atlantic Quarter in Cork's docklands development – the largest development project ever undertaken in the region at a cost of €1bn. In November 2008, it was announced that Howard Holdings was investing €300m to redevelop an island in the Polish port of Szczecin into a new city quarter.

"I predict" Lets hope your prediction on this is better then the one you gave on Anglo Irish bank! They are dangerous words in the current climate IMHO. Any thoughts on the news that 7% of the company shares were being used as security for personal loans? Lets say the share price was €18-19 when the loans were given so 7% of €3bn is €210m and lets say a LTV of 50% so loans of circa €100m now only have security of only €25m. Sounds like an Anglo or Irish Nationwide type loan during the bubble to me. Is this just not another form of debt? Is it possible a bank now has a hold over circa 20% of the company shares at todays valuation? http://www.independent.ie/business/irish/executives-pledged-8364185m-in-shares-for-personal-loans-1613931.html Kingspan directors, including founders Eugene and Brendan Murtagh and current chief executive Gene Murtagh are "under no pressure to sell shares" after it emerged that they pledged nearly eight per cent of the public company against personal bank loans. Those shares were worth close to €103m four months ago, last Friday the 12.2 million shares were valued at just €27m. Two years ago, 12.2 million shares would have been worth close to €270m. Kingspan chief executive Gene Murtagh put up 1.1 million shares as security against bank loans. This represents almost his entire shareholding. Murtagh has exercised shares at prices of well above the current market price, according to filings. Kingspan chairman Eugene Murtagh pledged five million shares as security against loans. Those shares are now worth just €11.5m, having been worth €42m in September or as much as €110m at the top of the market. Apart from his investment in Kingspan, he is also involved in the aviation, property and hotel sector. He bought the luxury five-star Hempel Hotel Group, which owns hotels in London and Amsterdam. His Glenmansion property firm has registered charges with IIB, AIB and BoI. The firm, which is involved in property in Edinburgh, took out a €5.2m loan with AIB in 2006. It is not due to be repaid until 2018, according to company filings. Brendan Murtagh pledged his entire shareholding against bank loans. Those shares are now worth almost €12m, having been valued at up to €113m at the peak http://www.irishtimes.com/newspaper/finance/2009/0626/1224249571538.html
