greedfear: I know what you mean, I too don't really like the control element. I've only been a holder since the share price crossed 6p downwards. It's a price where I'm feeling comfortable about the risk-reward ratio. If he takes it private I don't know how much he's going to pay, your guess is as good as mine.
fenners66: Greedfear "Removing dividends has got nothing to do with a paper loss on real estate, it's because the cash position" How about reading what was posted ? "The fact that the property was bought , barely used , had the value written down , making the resultant paper loss part of the reason for removing dividends has effected the share price." look closely "Bought" = used ALL the cash "barely used" = Questions from potential investors as to whether company lost its way "paper loss" = Bad headline results and no dividend - lots of potential investors don't get past the headlines "part of the reason " = part of the reason NOT the sole reason. Have you read up on the reference to Ovoca Gold ? Do so.... only don't get carried away and buy shares there as well !
savagedstock: The owner is surely better off taking this private....but its a vanity thing for him. To own a (former) well known brand and have a listing...i guess he might sell out for a high double digit share price to private equity....but what is in all honesty the real future of this company? It has not invested or repositioned its brand to teh point where it is now largely irrelevant. the core customer base is old and gradually dying off...a real shame.
srpactive: s In July 2015,it had a fantastic brand, balance sheet, dividend and share price.
coxsmn: The share price has literally been falling for 3 years. That is 3 years the management has had to make positive changes to reverse the fall.
fenners66: It has had the effect of removing all of the cash from the balance sheet whilst not putting it to work generating profit. The property was last referred to by RNS (if I remember correctly) as having declined in value. The share price seems to have crashed significantly since they spent all the cash. Dividends suspended (?I think so I cant be sure) So if anyone in the world wanted to take this private how much would it cost? Or wait a little longer and pay less?
fenners66: I think this is going private. If you had to invent a strategy for taking it private it would have been exercised like this. 1, get a controlling interest 2, take over the board 3, have independent directors resign and replace 4, buy a large property near 3% of your business and half a world away from the other 97% - which is surplus to the business 5, Use ALL of the cash so there is no money left to pay out dividends to those minority shareholders - as an income share this hits the share price. 6, Suffer and unfortunate devaluation of the property on the other side of the world, who knows what it is worth ? who can argue? 7, Watch the share price decline further as a result of the write down. 8, Increase the salary of the board members (family?) that you appointed - less profit 9, Review share price and see if the whole company has become cheap enough to buy. 10, if not continue until it is
jaykaytee: Hmm.. if they do de-list, what would the outcome be for shareholders? Would we get back a share price of whatever was quoted on the day of de-listing? If so, this would be a disastrous outcome for shareholders
srpactive: Well I have been buying more around this level, it depends if the chairman wants to get this back on its feet. If he does sell the Singapore office. If not, not. C This is such a shame if you look back at the July 2015 share price and the profitable results, with millions in the bank and a good decent dividend, then the Singapore purchase July 2015, bank emptied, debt raised and a low share price, and these people get paid, no wonder Mr Corbyn has so many followers. dyor.
jimmywilson612: I disagree Carcosa - I think it matches the funamentals and shows how tough retail is at the moment. If you simply compare the PE to other retailers: ALY: PE 10 MKS: PE 9 BON: PE 6.8 NXT: PE 11 SCS: PE 11 Therefore I dont see if necessarily as a decline in ALY share price, but a decline in the over view of the retail sector.
