I warned you about the management a few years ago. It's Khoo who calls the shots. Ng & Anglim are total lightweighs.Sadly LA cannot attract good senior management & it's likely too late now. LA is on a painful path to extinction. GLA

Sorry but how can a minor investor with no ability to attend a general meeting - to question directors - be happy at a board that for whatever reason - buys a property with all the cash a company has and more - barely uses it and then sells it 3 years later to a new company vehicle that appears set up for the purpose - at a £5m (at least) loss ? I say at least because there was interest to pay on borrowings. There seems to have been no actual reason for buying it - and the share price reacted accordingly. At best it is incompetent. I prefer to invest in companies with competent directors.

Fenners it's time to move on now. Yes it was certainly not the best decision to buy the property which most knew and even questioned who actually owned it through the divorce period. The good thing about Thursday news is the clarification and news that we are finally disposing of the property at a pretty good price all things considered.We now can move on and focus on he growing on-line sales business and hotel expansion.Growing profit is almost a given in 2019. The market perceived these as bust hence the price falling below 5p. Pretty big upside here I would say. Dyor etc

What does this mean , why is it in the circular for the sale of the property - which was bought 3 years ago and why do they go to lengths of talking about the last 2 years ?? "3.3 Save as disclosed in paragraphs 3.1- 3.2 above, and excluding contracts that are entered into in the ordinary course of business, there are no other contracts which have been entered into by members of the Continuing Group, in the two years immediately preceding the date of this Circular and which are, or may be, material or which have been entered into at any time by any member of the Continuing Group and which contain any provision under which any member of the Continuing Group has any obligation or entitlement which is, or may be, material to the Continuing Group as at the date of this Circular. 3.4 Save as disclosed in paragraphs 3.1 above, and excluding contracts that are entered into in the ordinary course of business, there are no other contracts affecting the Property which have been entered into by members of the Group, in the two years immediately preceding the date of this Circular and which are, or may be, material or which have been entered into at any time by any member of the Group and which contain any provision under which any member of the Group has any obligation or entitlement which is, or may be, material to the Group as at the date of this Circular

"The Property is being sold with vacant possession, save for a small number of units as set out in the Sale Agreement. The Purchaser will allow Laura Ashley Asia to occupy these units until 31 March 2019 free from rent, subject to Laura Ashley Asia bearing the related costs thereof. Laura Ashley Asia will deliver up vacant possession of the relevant units on 1 April 2019" Implies they hardly ever used it Such a wonderful management decision to buy it then.....

"The Board therefore conducted a thorough marketing exercise for the Property and after, taking into account the above and the interest received in the Property, the board has concluded that acceptance of the offer received from the Purchaser would be in the best interests of the Company and Shareholders as a whole. " Is that the same board that concluded it was in the best interests of the shareholders to buy the property ?

"Shepc 22 Aug '18 - 08:16 - 4307 of 4330 You mean the property they bought for £20m and have sold for £31m Gorse? Works for me" Well if that works for you shepc - I have some very rare brand new £5 notes that are easy worth £50 each but I'll let you have them for £49 , bargain. I think my Nigerian cousin is trying to get hold of you as well. From the 30-6-2015 RNS " The total acquisition cost to the Company, including Goods and Services Tax ("GST") and stamp duty, will be approximately SGD 73.0 million (GBP34.5 million). " Looks strange, I mean how could they be so stupid as to throw away £4.7m loss on disposal and 3 years of interest on the mortgage when they are such intelligent successful business men ? Who are they selling it to ? "SB (29NIR) Investment PTE.LTD ("Purchaser")" When the property is "commercial property in Singapore located at No.29, New Industrial Road ("Property")" Clearly the purchaser is a vehicle set up just to buy the property . Who owns them - what do they do ?

greedfear - its been low volumes for months apart from the 1-day results excitement, no doubt traders jumping on board for a quick profit.

I was buying over the past few weeks, I feel that the bottom is in. Buy and hold. It will take perhaps 3-5 years but a return to 30p in the future is my target. Great share for the SIPP.

debs has a reasonable point of view on this one imo. One needs to look at the background and reflect on some of the very negative posts about the management and main stakeholders that were posted by a number of interested parties on this thread over the past twelve months or so, and then weigh up the risks to reward?

Written like a real downer. :) A lot of positives here. Management currently doing all the right things. This share is far less risky now then it has been. Share price not reflecting the potential c.q. value (of the LA brand). Buy and hold. This will rerate.

It's about risk reward though isn't it. Thats the whole point of speculation and the markets. The reason the valuation is so low is because these are still risky. Who's to say their expansion into hotel won't be a great success? Who's to say the online fashion won't take off? Looks to me by the recent number it is and they still turned a profit and will write Down over £30m of debt with the property sale.
