A small cohort of die-hard LDSG shareholders turned out for the annual meeting which commenced at noon today with Jan Holmstrom, Johan Claesson and Kathryn Davenport in attendance. Once we got the voting out of the way the initial questioning solely focused on the absence of any dividend payments over the previous 10 years. Jan said they were looking to make investments and currently have a number of things they are working on, so felt investing in the business was the better option. I asked if they had made any investment offers and suggested Pittards as a good candidate, especially with Jan's association but he said it would be difficult due to the percentage that P.G already owns in the company. We were told the Shanghai operation is performing well and they are growing the European sales team. I asked why little attention is given to the UK and suggested they should perhaps employ additional dedicated resource to grow the UK sales, but Johan said the UK market was not the best territory to pursue and that France was a far better option. Johan had a rough time from some of the longstanding shareholders and you could understand why, but on occasion it did sound derogatory to any Swedish person in the room. I pointed out the share price is up 50% this year so things are not too bad, but judging from the looks I received it's still well below the entry point for many. Kathryn closed the meeting

I think Katherine is well aware of shareholder feeling (hence the change in AGM venue) they have a poor chap with over a million shares and believe me you would not stand in the way of him voicing his concerns - enough is enough now and it's only fair to call for a dividend for longsuffering shareholders...

Interested parties may like to investigate how Chapelthorpe is faring. Gyllie took over Chapelthorpe PLC 4 years ago. Some stockmarket investors remain locked in, including most preference shareholders. Company name changed recently to "International Fibres". I know nothing more.

The LDSG & Swedish 'concert party' saga is in its 14+ year now. Over this period & in real terms a huge diminution in value has taken place assisted more recently by catastrophic 'investment decisions'. Other than a.13 pence share distribution shareholders have not much to show for their patience. The only consolation now being we are all getting older & final resolution/liquidation is surely nearer.

Sadly, I agree with Arthur on the dividend front. I cannot recall a Gyllie company which has ever paid an Ordinary Share dividend. However, Gyllie expects to make money long-term so perhaps this time minority investors will too......eventually.

I take your point and wouldn't argue, but feel they are responsive to the little guys so whilst we may only have catapults they may well listen to our request for a dividend.

The Swedes seem determined to keep the price low here for their own reasons so I don't think they'll pay a dividend. They treat this company as their own personal fiefdom. They've made two disasterous investments with the cash and may make more. All that said i'd still think about buying back in in a small way if the price drops back nearer 20p.

My gut instinct tells me they have tremendous potential and focusing on the sales team seems the correct decision, but I want to see a dividend and that is what I will be calling for across the table at our upcoming AGM

Yes I agree that things are going quite well but when and if that will translate into an improved shareprice is anybodies guess.

Ah, thread necromancy. Didn't spot the date was quite so old and I was also looking at the operating performance excluding Dawson hit. My mistake. Still, ongoing operations look to be doing reasonably well, don't you think?

Hi StewJames Have a quick look at the results that were published soon after my comment. http://www.investegate.co.uk/leeds-group-plc--ldsg-/rns/half-yearly-report/201301080700060034V/

"Arthur_Lame_Stocks 19 Dec'12 - 18:42 - 19 of 38 0 0 I sold mine too. The next set of results are going to show a loss and I can see the price coming down from here. I was a shareholder for the best part of ten years so finally getting an exit at a reasonable profit was too good an opportunity to miss." Just catching up on these and at first glance it seems the operating performance has improved nicely. Why are you excepting a loss?

I collected the annual report from HQ but sadly Malcolm was not in today apparently he mostly works from home now. I was going to ask him a couple of questions but guess they can wait until our AGM.

Leeds enthusiasts !!!! Am not sure their are many of those; & most are aware of Yorklyde, Dawson & all the other disappointing investment satellites of PG & Browallia over the past 10+ years.

Leeds enthusiasts should not forget the outcome for investors in PG-controlled Chapelthorpe (code: "CPL"). By chance, a geographical neighbour.

Excellent 'trading results', but impossible to reason what will get this share price closer to asset value [.49pence] while the 'Swedes' remain disinterested or speculating on how to lose more value with ill considered investments !!!

Rapidly approaching our final results...Perhaps good news? I told Jan last year we would put our trust in him & the majority shareholders to take the right decisions to drive the business forward and hopefully deliver a return for shareholders.
