tiswas: I had a decent chat with Steve Roberts non-exec chairman. He and fellow directors are not happy with the current share price and think that it does not reflect the turnaround from the high debt days and the current levels of dividend and profitability. Acquisitions are difficult because many sellers are led to believe that their businesses are worth a lot more than they really are because of the input of business brokers. They remain under the Institutions radar because of their size. Brokers notes are not only expensive relative to their size but forecasting is difficult because of the number and mix of businesses and the cyclical nature of many of them. I mentioned piworld and they will have a look at that as a possible way of getting their story out there. They understand that the last trading statement was perhaps not worded as clearly as it could have been and will endeavour to explain the businesses in greater detail at the time of the full year results. I got the impression that they are fully aware of the importance of the dividend to shareholders but that the levels of growth in the business are not easy to forecast over the medium and longer term and I have some sympathy with that. I think that they are genuinely interested in what shareholders have to say but the nature of their business and where they are positioned is such that they can not possibly have all the answers. I came away encouraged by Steve's openness and willingness to engage but have reminded myself that is a microcap, regional and cyclical business that will never be on a racey rating but should continue to pay a decent dividend and be in a far better position to cope with any downturn than it has been in the past.
ed_derby: Great news tiswas ... your persistency has paid offNot sure what questions you have lined up ... Keeping it general ...How does he see the share price ... and how does he feel when it drifts down?Is there any opportunity to do a more frequent trading update ... even just to reaffirm everything is on track?Can you ask if you can share your conversation on this thread
graham1ty: Unless they engage with shareholders......all of this is speculation. The RNS was fundamentally unclear, shareholders were spooked, the share price dropped. Simples. Being NTBR there will be no further communication until the results.
tiswas: This is me The share price peaked at 90p over 18 months ago and has since come off about 25%. And as people posted above, it is not clear from today's announcement if they are still growing profits in the second half. Still, as long as you are happy.
simso: Impvesa, I presume they will announce a similar dividend to LY of 4p,given similar results, so the yield would be around 5.5% if that is the case...and depending how the share price reacts to this news!
eggbaconandbubble: To my mind NTBR are well off without him, apart from the fact he's almost certainly dragging the share price down!
simso: RNS just out confirming that John Pither has sold 505k shares, and remains interested in 889k shares. I believe JP is 83 years old, and has been a long term periodic his stake is a permanant overhang, which will not have helped the share price. Good to see more of his stake sold.
meijiman: Yes I would have thought it was a three figure share price. Maybe its too off the radar?
graham1ty: I think things are slowly changing. They do realise they need to communicate better. They are not going to do a MELLO yet, but slowly reaching out to investors. I suspect they have had meetings with research writers, but were not sure whether the cost was worth it. They have issued four RNS in the last year all cross referring to last year’s profit, so giving as good a steer on profits as any brokers note would. They have started the shareholder newsletter, which does not include anything price sensitive, but does add some flavour. I think they realise that NTBR has fallen into the “no news might be bad news” camp, so the share price rises on every RNS, then falls slowly until the next one. They need a general positive reputation, to dry up some of the selling, but also mean there are buyers when stock appears. I think they do “get it” and I hope we will see a little more consideration for shareholders going forward. I think they are as frustrated as anyone that the shares cannot break out of the 70p-80p range despite all the positive news flow
leona306a: I would like to give you a little insight into the history of Ntbr.Also my reasons for investing heavily in them.They floated on the stock market in December 2006 at a price of 60p. They soon made several acquisitions and where considered to be a good company who where going a long way. By the end of 2007 the share price was about 170, a three fold gain.Less than a year later the world recession started and Ntbr did not have time to prove itself. The share price dropped 9p in late 2012.All through the recession they made a profit (a small one but never the less a profit) With all this information and the share price at 9p, I considered the merits of the company!A...This is a Yorkshire company....hard working nitty gritty down and down to earth .Family ties and responsibilities.(family comes first).B...It is managed by a hard working local team with many years of local experience....graham Jenkins 40 years..Kieth soulsby 40 years..Stephen Roberts 20 years...John gilstin 30 years...Alan chapman 40years.. And I and can go on and on.C.... A low pe of 6.7......low peg of 0.1...5 out of the last six years of positive growth...acquisitions selected By a team with 100s of years of experience. Can you not buy into this company???
