Still think this is ripe for a change. Headroom should not reduce further in my opinion. Tiger

They're there now: http://robinsonpackaging.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/Robinson-Report-and-Accounts-2017.pdf Probably only published in the last day or two, as the printed copy landed on my doormat on Wednesday. So not saying you were wrong on Monday! Gengulphus

This is very much a company that under delivers and has done for years.

Funny the difference a few months can make: The sale of surplus properties in Chesterfield is progressing and developments for the Walton Mill and Boythorpe Works sites are being discussed with prospective tenants and buyers. This process is likely to take several more months but we do expect some realisations in 2018. Finding suitable buyers for the Boythorpe Works residential site and Walton Works mixed use site has been challenging in the current market. Large retail developments are now in low demand and residential development opportunities in the locality are in good supply.

Problem is that the listed buildings are old warehouses in a grotty part of Chesterfield, albeit leading out on the road to Bakewell, but you can see they are impractical for a tasteful redevelopment under strict planning conditions, the costs involved would be prohibitive, so they are now a white elephant, this company will not exist by the time ny benefit will be received!

Well I guess the land has value even if demand is subdued. At some price a developer would see it as an opportunity so even if it is a lot less then we had hoped for i'd rather that they sold it than raise cash through a rights issue. And frankly I don't think they should be paying an uncovered dividend while debt is rising although I admit it's always nice to get one.

Bookbroker,whilst i agree with most of your points,especially the overseas expansion ,grossly overvalued and paidd for with borrowed money.Their is stil value but may need a rights issue of around 5 million to stabilise business reduce debt and allow for new management to take up reins.Will family take up or will they accept time has come to relinquish effective control.I dont think this board has will to change. CEO should resign or be sacked.

I used to like this company, they balleds up by increasing their debt a few years back to acquire supposedly game-changing businesses in Eastern Europe, this has gone pear-shaped as costs out of control and a step change in the use of plastics. They should have cut the dividend to zero, the listed buildings in Chesterfield are now a millstone around their neck, the sale of the these properties was supposed to strengthen the balance sheet, it is now weakening it, and debt is beginning to hobble this business. Sadly I think it is curtains for Robinson, net assets great when they can be used to support the underlying business, the reverse is now occurring!

Fundamentals suggest a floor around 57p.This will depend on interims which I suspect will show further weaknes.The board is stuffed with good stewards of larger well managed businesses.No one who can get into nitty gritty of poor performing operations. Need to be more hands on before too late,if not already .Board sleepwalking into severe problems.

For me the real kick in the balls is the failure to sell the surplus property. It was mainly my hope that they could get a good price for this and the shares would spike this year that made me buy a few shares here. At least the dividend is being maintained although it's not covered by earnings and debt is rising. They really need to pull out all the stops and sell that property for as much as they can get imo.

The name of game in plastics is environmental,reducing effects on whist cutting costs.Those who embrace and develop recycling techniques making greater use of post industrial processed plastics will succeed.See articles on coral products in British plastics and rubber .

Important question but I suspect not much will change. Glass and metal are higher cost and higher energy containers than plastic. I'd expect re-use of plastics to increase but not to a great extent because it would often be impractical. Is anyone here old enough to remember the milk cart slowly progressing down the street and people coming out of their houses with jugs to be filled from the container? I don't see us going back to that, due to inconvenience and hygiene. Robinson are more niche anyway, so don't compete for the huge contracts. Their future depends to an extent on the solutions they offer their customers. If they do well in that, then they can grow. Alternatively, would the family contemplate selling out? I don't know.

Come back to have another look but surely the whole packaging trend is ANTI-PLASTIC so could it be that the business model is broken ?

Agree with your comments, charo. Very badly managed company. Challenging market conditions. Loss of two major contracts so they add to operating costs. Hard to believe. Good management would cut costs by 10%. Huge improvement in profitability and cash flow. This smells like Victoria Carpets {VCP} before they sacked most of the board.

What a mess.margins down new investment required to meet business needs but chairman not positive that can earn sufficient margin to merit investment.This planned investment will increase borrowings.!!!Final div will exhaust cash balance.The much heralded sale of surplus properties now stalled.Chairmans statement has much reduced the potential value of this asset ,supposedly circa £ 5miillion. Banks will be seriously worried about level of exposure. This once fine family company is now in serious trouble.

The problem here is their existing businesses require a lot of capital investment to remain competitive, and they are are a small company manufacturing specialised plastic containers for the food industry principally, the derelict properties in Chesterfield look like a bomb site when you pass them, are not that substantial in terms of brownfield, and are in a rundown part of west Chesterfield with low price terraces, the main building is listed, it will require an expensive refurb. to make it habitable, a big undertaking in terms of seeing any real value uplift!

Why haven’t I learned not to trust Scottish companies? Indigovision (IND) has been walking dead for years, and little Edinburgh tankers managed to screw shareholders right royally. Robinson’s seems to have a good niche and often largely family owned businesses align their interests with shareholders: not here I fancy. However, having held long enough to be eligible for IHT relief, and because it is a drab, dour, bleak little holding, I’m with E1982 - surely can’t be much downside from here. Famous last words.

Only if they pay 100% proceeds to shareholders. Company is very badly managed so should not reinvest any of the funds.
