It will be interesting to see what Nichols intend to do with the cash pile. Nothing much happened last year and I am hoping for something a little more proactive this time around. An acquisition or special dividend (or even a combination of the two) would suit pretty well. About time that we had a scrip issue as well. The share price is looking a bit on the heavyweight side!

Perfect....as usual.... :-) Nichols plc Pre-Close Trading Statement Nichols plc ("the Group"), today issues the following pre-close trading update. The Group has continued its positive trading momentum in the second half of 2012 with total sales for the year ended 31 December 2012 increasing by 9% to GBP108m. This performance is ahead of the UK soft drinks market and has been achieved against last year's strong comparatives (18% uplift on 2010), a challenging UK economy and record wet weather. The UK market, as measured by A.C. Nielsen, increased in value by 3.2% for the year to 8 December 2012 with underlying volume down 0.6%. Despite this challenging market we are pleased to report that our UK business has increased sales by 10% against the prior year with our export sales also increasing by 8%. Despite another year of significant cost inflation and high levels of promotional activity, we expect, as a minimum, to maintain our operating margins. This has been achieved by a combination of good cost control and ongoing productivity improvements. The Group's balance sheet remains strong and has continued to generate positive cash in line with our expectations. In summary, 2012 has seen a strong trading performance and we expect Group profit and earnings per share (EPS) to be significantly ahead of last year and ahead of market expectations. The Group's Preliminary results will be announced on 7 March 2013.

I have been waiting for NICL to pull back but have decided not wait any longer and have made my first purchase for my SIPP. This company looks rock solid and the the management will contiue to develop the brands.

The AG Barr/Britvic situation may be helping Nichols. The new merged entity (if created) looks likely to totally crater the Barr balance sheet so I can't see risk averse investors staying with it.

Hi topvest, congratuations on waiting a few more days to get almost 10% more than me, I have been putting my money into SPRP http://uk.advfn.com/cmn/fbb/thread.php3?id=24324751 what (if anything) are you reinvesting in? 3800

Same here - sold half of my holding today. Didn't really want to as this is a great company, but they had nearly quadrupled since buying just over 2 years ago. The share price had gone vertical so seemed very imprudent not to get my initial investment and more back. Great company this, but a profit is a profit!

Well I have sold half my holding since last posting and the price has already gone even higher. I have been in since £1.17 and it's been an excellent investment so far. 3800

3800.....tend to agree but there is a lot of cash in the balance sheet that needs to be factored in to any valuation. The other thing is this company has got to be taken out at some stage and its bound to happen just after you sell!!! No double top yet so I'll ride it for a bit longer.

As a long term holder I have to agree things are looking well, however the share price is rising much faster than the rise in earnings and with it the risk of a severe pull back, rather than adding more I am considering selling afew. 3800

I was thinking of adding a bit more if/when it broke through £8... might still do so next week. I still think prospects are good for the long term

ryandj...........I thought your comment looked over-optimistic until I witnessed today's share price performance. This thing just refuses to go down. You may well prove to be right.

While John Nichols is the only family member to hold a notifiable interest of over 5% I do beleive other family members combined hold a significant amount not sure if it would be enough to stave off a takeover though. There was one mooted a few years back which came to nothing, with results like these I too would like the company to remain independent. 3800

3800...............I haven't got a problem with that as it is organic growth funded from cash flow. Problem for Nichols (and shareholders) is that predators can also see this!

At the last shareholders meeting when questioned about the dividends failing to keep pace with rising profits it was stated by the chairman that the cash pile was stratigic to further expansion. 3800

Fortunately, it doesn't rain much in the Middle East where a lot of Nichols growth seemd to be coming from! The cash pile is now significant and must either be a) reinvested b)heading back towards shareholders or c) likely to attract predators. Any of these scenarios is likely to be positive for shareholders.
