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: 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.
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.
srpactive: 11% Our Singapore office in July 2015, when our share price was 35p! ================================================== A director of Shell has resigned after being charged with fraud in relation to his former job at global miner Rio Tinto. Guy Elliott said he would step down from his non-executive director role at Shell with immediate effect after US regulator the Securities and Exchange Commission charged him in relation to a botched coal deal while he was chief financial officer at Rio. Mr Elliott has been charged with fraud alongside Rio Tinto and its former chief executive Tom Albanese over allegations they hid the true value of coal assets in Mozambique following a disastrous acquisition. Rio took a $3bn (£2.28bn) writedown on Riversdale Mining in 2013. It bought the coal project in the southern African country for $3.7bn in 2011 but sold it for just $50m three years later, after realising it would be unable to ship coal downriver to port.
fangsforthememory: I am wondering if Dr K K Peng paid off his wife's divorce bill in cash, or partly in shares???? The messy divorce gives lots of insight into the mindset of the guy at the helm. It does appear that there is a concerted effort to walk down the share price of ALY. Perhaps it is just total incompetence, and inability to develop the online side of the business? Nothing would surprise me from someone who spent £6m on lawyers fighting a divorce settlement.
kazoom: At the risk over coming over all "chartist", if you look at the chart above, you'll that in the last 12 months the share price has fallen by about 13p (15p as of a few days ago) in a broadly linear fashion, with some wobbles above and some below. It's clear of the last couple of weeks we had a wobble down below the line, some of this has been recovered over the last couple of days so that the price is now broadly on, or perhaps still slightly below, the line. Whilst this could be a bottom, it is very premature to conclude yet that it is significant. I very much doubt that there is some significant news that the last couple of days share price moves presage. Just noise IMHO.
whiskeyinthejar: Im not trying to short or buy in lower. I just think I can learn from stocks even when I dont hold. In fact its often the best way. The office block isnt my main concern. Peng knows property (it's one of main businesses of his MUI group) and so Ive a fair idea he will soon make a profit selling the building. The elephant in room IMO is Peng himself, who as majority shareholder can do as he pleases with little explanation. I think it's obvious he doesn't care about the share price. I suspect that's hes happy to see the share price go down as if he wants he can bid to buy remaining shares at any time. The costs of listing on AIM are significant for small companies so win win for him. iirc the shops don't perform that well, perhaps they should be dumped, but the online business and the hotel is generating significant cash. Shareholders can fight him over what he would decide to offer, but I think if he made an offer at 12p today it'd go through.
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.
srpactive: imho the way aly share price is being kept at this level with all the good and takeover retail news leads me to think a bid will come sooner rather than latter. For example the share price for charting purposes etc is showing 25p, when the bid is 26p and the offer 26.5p. dyor regards active
