cc2014: David, Post #1439 Can I start with symapthising with you over what seems to be some frustration in your post. AIM/Small cap companies with a market cap under £75m have all been struggling with their share price since MIFID II due to lack of broker coverage. In addition I also hold shares where I've identified them at a crazy low price and await their re-rating. What I leant after some considerable time is that after MIFID II the re-rating doesn't come and they remain at what I see as a crazy discount long term. Of course shares cannot stay irrational in price forever, but they can for longer than I am patient. Certainly I have been frustrated this year but that feeling seems to have abated now and I'll just wait, collect my dividends and at some point things will sort themselves out. I have spent hours and hours reseraching NTBR over the last 2 years and whilst I agree the share price is low, I see plenty others as the same level or greater discout from what I see as fair value. The P/E is very low but when all is said and done, anything construction is going to suffer from this to a greater or lesser extent. I remain unconvinced mostly because the directors do not take their communication with shareholders sufficiently seriously. Whether or not they are interested in presenting in Mello is not important to me as that is a choice but the time it takes to make company statements on what are important issues is poor. In some ways this reflects the market cap of £12m. That's tiny and whilst one might argue they are busy running the company I disagree, if they are listed on AIM, then should be keeping investors informed. I think it telling that 26% of the company has been traded in the tender offer but not one RNS showing a change in holding has been produced. That suggests nearly all the shares have come from PI's who have been happy to flip for a few pennies or 10% or sell at a loss or whatever. Hardly long term holders with any conviction. I'm afraid, sadly, PI don't buy and hold for 10 years like they used to and exit with a 5-10 bagger. That's not fashionable in today's instant gratification social media age. In conclusion if you trust the mangement and are happy to hold for 5 years, my advice is to find a way to park the frustration as at sometime the share price will sort itself out. Parking the frustration is easier said than done I know. It is my view investors will look back at the prices avaiable now on many many stocks in five years time and see this as the "sale of the century". I am unconvinced NTBR is one of them but having done so much research I will be continuing to watch awaiting something from the directors to change my view.
taylor20: Well for Mr Baryshnik to pick up so many shares at a meagre 10p premium to the share price certainly proved his strategy, I doubt you could pick up more than a couple of % in the market without driving the price well above that point.
graham1ty: Wonder what the share price will do now ? Presumably drift down ? Though if you did not tender at 72p you must believe the Company is worth more, and are therefore a buyer !!!LOL.
cc2014: I don't own any shares but have watched NTBR for a long time and I was kind of interested enough to do half an hour's research on Jeff. I suggest he's got a plan out of which he will make money but I struggle to guess what it is. Suggestions; 1. He gets around 20% of the shares and then moves the company on at a higher price to someone at a much higer price. I note he seems to be buying the shares personally so maybe he has a number of funds he will shift it on to. Maybe he has a bidder lined up at a quid but they aren't interested unless they can be sure they can get 50% of the votes without a bidding war. Possibly one of the other holders has already indicated they would be up for this. In which case you all do very well if you hold. 2. 20% would be enough to get a seat on the board and along with another large holder or two they can take control and start pillaging the company through management charges for expertise, at the same time paying out large non-exec fees, dividends and loading it up with debt. In which case you all do very badly apart from the dividend stream. Think Laura Ashley as an example of how this is done. 3. Possibly he gets a seat on the Board and uses his contacts to give NTBR access to large amounts of capital for expansion, using agressive accounting policies, thereby pushing the share price up. The only bit I don't understand yet is that he won't get much influence unless he gets 15% of the shares and even that really isn't enough, so he must have some of the large shareholders lined up. Whatever he's up to my research suggests he's not just going to buy the shares, sit on them for 10 years and collect the dividends. Maybe I'm overcomlicating it. Maybe he just sees value, hopes to get 29.9% now and then will make a bid in a year's time. GLA
this_is_me: The other risk that you take is that the share price gets above 80p again. If you managed to buy some at 66p for the short term trade then you are a winner but selling at 72p is not necessarily a good idea for a long term investor.
this_is_me: David, as I pointed out last week I managed to find our about NTBR 6 years ago and invested a reasonable amount. The fact that the share price is now around 5 times what I paid shows that others have been buying and pushing the share price up. The company gets the occasional mention in Investors Chronicle and some investors use the likes of Sharescope to find likely companies. So you are not correct. I suspect a lot of selling pressure is from retired directors whose companies were taken over in share based deals. Institutions rarely take any interest in companies as small as NTBR. That will be less so in the future as they have seen what happened to Woodford when the great unwashed invested, not understanding anything about liquidity. A lot of short term investors is not what we need temporarily pushing the share price up only to get fed up and sell just as quickly trashing the share price.
davidosh: Exbroker.... If you are an ex broker then I am sure you know none of those are institutional holders? Why do you think institutions are not interested? If a company is listed then the share price does need to reflect the value of the company. NTBR is currently on a p/e of 5 after the lift up this was on a p/e below 5 and a yield of 5%. If the directors do nothing about it then it should not be a surprise that someone else has done this. There is an argument for the company to have bought back shares but in reality the liquidity is already quite poor so a bigger dividend would be better with any free cash and the yield would surely then attract more buyers too.
3800: well if he gets less than a 1% take up the whole tender offer gets pulled. The whole thing must be costing him a fortune compared with the size of the company I cannot imagine why someone with no background or connection with this area of business would go to all this trouble. 72p is of no interest to me personally I'm staying a holder for now the share price has been higher than that in the last couple of years with the dividend quadrupling in the last 4 years. I know it's a very cyclical business but it's worth more than that.
zangdook: I do have some empathy for directors who want to get on with running their company and persuading people to buy their services rather than travelling all the way to London to try to persuade other people to buy their shares from each other. It's nice when companies take an interest in presenting themselves but, except when they're looking to raise money, not really their core responsibility. I'd rather my investment appreciated because the company was whipping up business in the north to support the share price and dividend, rather than whipping up investor frenzy down south. I've had enough of little fraudy types who spend all their time raising money and never get around to making any.
cc2014: Kier won't go bust. Because the situation with Kier is different than Carillion and Interserve as Kier are making profits unlike Carillion and Interserve. So, even in the worse possible case the bond holders will do a debt for equity swap to wipe out most of the debt. Sharesholders may get punished but the company will continue and creditors will get paid. Having said that the share price of a quid on Kier is telling us something. They need to raise some cash by selling some assets. I know they have sold some parcels of land for £25m and if they raised £100m things would look very different. The share price is artificially low on Kier as St. James Place and Woodford are selling out due to Woodford deciding to now only hold FTSE100+FTSE250 and Woodford being removed as the portfolio manager at St. James who have a rule only FTSE100+FTSE250. I expect the share price at Kier will bounce once St. James have finished selling.
