It used to be Bass Charrington. Charrington was the London and South East England operation was the Cash Cow the Business. Charrington began the takeover in the 1950's which built the group and M&B was the final piece of the jigsaw in the mid 1960's. M&B had been the Midlands operation and was very Managed House orientated. The Managed House style was seen future after the Monopolies and Mergers Commission broke up the group in the early 1990's. ' Now the group is beginning to re focus back on the London operations with their new acquisitions etc. The South East is where the customers have spending power. Both Fullers and JDW have London origin's. The political in fighting of the 1990's where the Midland Boys won may now be realised to be a mistake. I just hope it is not too little too late.

Not that great compared to rivals. Fullers also reported today - "Like-for-like sales in Managed Pubs and Hotels grew 7.7% for the period and by 7.2% in the 10 weeks since the Company last reported." and JDW a few days ago "For the first 12 weeks of the second quarter (to 19 January 2014), like-for-like sales increased by 6.7% and total sales by 10.6%. In the year to date (25 weeks to 19 January 2014), like-for-like sales increased by 5.2% and total sales increased by 9.0%." M&B (Bass) used to be a market leader. Doesn't feel like it now.

Time for them to re-instate the dividend or maybe get taken over. This has gone nowhere for years.

Just a disappointing August sent the shares into freefall. I think the market has overreacted on this one.

#405, "Old Hanson"? Remind me. To be fair to MAB, they made one disastrous mistake in ever having any dealings with the awful Tchenguiz and the R20 project (a plan to split the valuable properties from the trading side) and, particularly, in entering into a swap agreement independently of the failed R20 deal which blew a massive hole in their balance sheet. Since then, the huge stakes acquired by Joe Lewis and Magnier in the fallout from the R20 deal resulted in a period of open warfare in the boardroom, with wholesale changes on several occasions as the major shareholders sought to impose their influence. If anyone is going to "make an opportunistic bid to take the company private", it is more likely to be Lewis/Magnier (as they tried to do in the past) than "management". In the meantime, it is amazing that the frontline management have done such a good job in keeping the trading side going with the mayhem and infighting going on over their heads.

Restaurant Group powering ahead on divi raised by 12%. Pity M&B are run by such a bunch of losers. Talk about taking the rug from under their feet - how much longer do we have to wait for some proper management? I certainly won't be voting for the remuneration report. We need positive action. Same PER, both shares started at 300p - MAB now 376p, Restaurant Group 506p and a 2.1% divi. Says it all really, maybe they will buy us out!

This company has been ruined by incompetent directors. It used to trade on a par with the Restaurant Group but now are over 60p behind. It would be helpful if they reinstated the dividend rather than allowing the price to drop to a level where management can make an opportunistic bid to take the company private. Old Hanson must be fuming in his grave.
