Debt at 19.2% will just keep costing them money.

Its obvious a noose around their neck and the obvious solution was to tap any large holders
for equity to pay it off.
That must have already been tried and therefore they must have got a no chance from large
holders or have none left of any size / deep pockets.

So that leaves going to the market with a massively discounted rights issue.
So why buy now before its announced it could trash the share price..

Their advisors may just say there is no appetite for that whilst results are so poor and
there is a cash call coming for the pension deficit.

After all why put good money in after bad when the company goes under due to no cash the debt
holder can do a debt for equity or let it go and let the govt pay the pensions...

I will try but others may be better suited than me.

When Deutsche put out their note they believed that MTC were a good recovery stock and they set a price target without a timescale and based it on the stars aligning.
As yet, the stars are not aligning and it may be another eighteen months before they do.
The underlying factors are considered good (ish) in their eyes.

We have no CEO/lost Russia (out of their hands)/Israel/Gaza (out of their hands)/high interest rates (should be able to deal with late this year or early next.

I expect another territory or a licensing deal to be announced by the end of June.

Needs another twelve months.

IMPO/DYOR

Under Whiley, De la Rue shares have doubled from 45p to 90p (needs fact checking)
put these MTC away and forget them or sell and get out.

Friday was certainly a lively days trading. Interesting to note the cavalry arrive in the afternoon.As I said, experience tells me to be careful what you wish for!As a holder of a sizeable stake my own view is disappointing but understandable statement.MTC working hard in a difficult environment I will continue to hold.Impo/Dyor

@applied - cheers! but that's business and fortunately my company survived, unlike a lot of others.

Quite funny really - they held a meeting in HK a few days after MTC was born for suppliers as a Q&A...but only really have 24/36 hours notice hoping that disgruntled creditors wouldn't attend!

I was one if a few hundred that turned up and basically roasted the CEO and FD that had put them into administration and then miraculously where4 in the same positions of the new company, a lot of anger was vented in those couple of hours haha

@applied... I'm well documented as saying the management that took them into administration should have been investigated (the new MTC name was registered weeks before appointment of administrators).

Unfortunately since then there has been a string of bad board appointments imo!!

But its an ailing business, so I guess hard to entice some highflying CEO that's got a bit about themselves?

Makes me bloody cross....well documents that I have lost over 7 figures to this company due to the administration (not in shares but non payment of invoices).

My views are well documented on this MTC thread, the management are inept and have been for many years now.

Realistically who is going to refinance them, the current provider certainly isn't going to on when they are making plenty of money of the current finance deal!

In my opinion, as I have said previously I fear the worst for MTC and their largest franchisee in the middle east will probably wait for administration and then buy the name and look to do the buying and sourcing operation overseas?

But who’s gonna sell 1,000,000 shares when MTC has just been rated as a buy? It wouldn’t make any sense to me Applied1. News must be any day now.
Posted at 18/4/2024 08:25 by pgh3
yes still trading - still placing orders (although volumes are significantly down, due to over stocking in the middle east market and loss of Russia).

I'm still getting paid on time, although we get paid directly from the middle east franchisee (MTC's largest customer).

I am un surprised by the lack of news, and I have over the past few years tried to give a suppliers view point.

Ever since the administration in 2018 (or was it 2019), where the management basically did a phoenix (it came to light the MTC company name was registered a few weeks before the actual administration), both the original management & subsequent new management has given false hope and very little meat on the bones in my opinion.

In my opinion they are waiting for a buyer and I believe the best suitor for MTC is waiting for them to run out of cash and buy them/the brand name cheap.

All of the above is my own personal opinion and please don't base your trading on my opinion!! DYR

Again for the record I do not hold shares in MTC, my exposure in different ways is more than enough for me.

thanks
