Could they not just sell the Singapore property at a profit and pay off the outstanding loans? Or does the MD think this could still drive future business growth. Apologies for my ignorance here but i'm afraid i've not been following this one closely.

Since I did not buy in here at around 20p having read on here about the influence the MD has , I expect this to continue to fall , at least that is until he is satisfied that it has fallen as far as it possibly can so he can make a cheeky bid and take it private. How low can it go? Cheapest bid possible is perhaps made to an administrator... Any guesses?

Are we expecting a sharp upward correction here or a continuing downward trajectory?

f66 Thank you, Singapore property has done well this year and they write the value down just as prices are expected to rise 10% this year and 20% over the next four years. What has happened here since July 2015 is terrible to say the least. Dyor.

You might want to take a look at the judgement in the case of the Oystons at Blackpool FC. I was surprised to find that the law actually have got involved there .

This might be my first route. ============================== Complaints procedure - Companies House - GOV.UK https://www.gov.uk/government/organisations/companies.../complaints-procedure Jump to How to complain - You can also contact the manager of the team you want to complain about. Explain the problem, provide as much information ...

Yes and the board have been paid to do this, I think the Houses of Parliament should be informed to investigate, as this is another example of very poor management with very good pay. If this does not turn around very quickly I will be contacting them, this is a very iconic British brand that has been allowed to be ruined by Malaysian investors who do not care about the UK. Ceo's wife wanted a divorce in the UK as it was far fairer in settlements, maybe the tables should be turned on them and have the other shareholders rewarded fairly for her families complete and utter contempt for Laura Ashley and its shareholders. It is about time we all spoke up, starting very shortly.

Indeed almost 3/4 drop in shareholder value since 2015. Staggering.

MMD You can see on the chart the fall from grace starting July 2015, when all was good with ALY, profitable businesses, cash in the bank, award winning business paying a super dividend, then the July 2015 Singapore purchase that drained the company of the cash and loaded the balance sheet with debt and the share price collapsed. I have been buying more recently, hoping a sale of the Singapore asset might reverse the present position. So wrong that this has been permitted to happen, it should never have been voted through by all involved. Especially when you see the asset is now worth virtually 40% of the company now, compared to only 12% when bought. DYOR.

I thought I had bought into a boring fashion company paying an attractive dividend. Turns out it I may be invested in a booming Singapore property market and no dividend.

Here is a little background as you mentioned, Singapore, dyor. ============================ Chinese investors paid $3b for Singapore office assets They also injected over $2b on residential lands in 1H17. Singapore is attracting more real estate investors from China and Hong Kong as transaction volumes rose by 6% this year despite a rather weak market in 2016, real estate firm JLL said in a report. In the first half of 2017, Singapore gained investments worth $3b into office assets and $2b into residential land from investors in Hong Kong and mainland China. According to Regina Lim, head of capital markets research, Southeast Asia, JLL, "Singapore remains a key market for many investors due to its long-term positive fundamentals. Real estate transaction volumes in Singapore rose by six per cent year-on-year in the first half of the year, as investor sentiment is turning positive after CBD office rents bottomed earlier than expected." JLL also noted remarkable purchases in Q12017 such as the FWD Group's purchase of a 50% stake in One George Street and Chinese company Nanshan Group and Logan's $1b investment in a government land sale site in Stirling Road. According to JLL, investors' confidence increased when they saw a pick-up in tenant demand and in office rents in Q2. "Due to stronger than expected rental growth, we upgraded our Singapore office rental forecasts for 2018 by about 10 per cent. We now expect Singapore prime office rents to rise 20% over the next four years,” Lim said

Okay thank you, well if they are rebounding as you mention, it would be good to sell the asset, it has recently been marked down in value on the books, I believe dyor.

I don't see a connection to the divorce. In my opinion it is Barclays either wanting some more collateral for the existing facility, or that facility is being extended. The only cause for optimism I can see right now is that Singapore office prices appear to be on the rebound, not that that was a sector that I wanted to be invested in.
