The business was loss making in first six months of 2017. If Poland is profitable - UK must be a large loss. Either way - time for a change

Issue here is that the Robinson family know they are sitting on strong fixed assets, Clothier is a useless, old-fashioned, outdated businessman, they need some young buck to shake the packaging business up, Poland was a good place to invest, but they timed it wrong and overpaid, total car crash!

Overmars,That's not correct - Poland made £1.1m in 2016, my understanding is that Lodz was loss making so Maddox may have made approximately £1.5m profit which is fairly significant in the context of a £2.1m overall profit.

I think barely profitable now or loss making. Thoughts are ten-a-penny. Reasoned thoughts are rather more valuable! So: why do you think that? Gengulphus

Maddox performed well initially triggering earnout payment. Owners/key management departed. I think barely profitable now or loss making. Not good

Good point CH, I'd mentally put both Polish businesses into the same pot, which as you say misses the divergent performances, I think the real issue is likely account mgt & or innovation or the lack therof in the wider group which speaks to leadership quality. Looking at Macf results today they seem to be trucking along just fine , different market but arguably an even tougher more commoditised sectors!

I believe the opposite, the Maddox acquisition has performed Ok - hence the maximum earn out. The problems have been with the legacy Polish Lodz based business and the UK operation which both lost large contracts in the last couple of years.

CEO and finance director should both be held accountable. Destroyed 10 million of shareholder value on Poland acquisition There are more able executives that should run this company

The acquisitions by the CEO and approved by board have been very poor.Why he still there poss can't afford to pay him off.

Currently on holiday so haven't looked at today's announcement in depth but it was made clear to me at the agm operational improvements wouldn't be visible in H1 numbers so I wasn't at all surprised by today's statement. The key for me is whether they deliver improved results in H2 and 2018 as they have promised whilst monitoring any development on the surplus land.

I'm happy to be on the sidelines here having made a hefty loss holding out for the property upside, my issue is that when I bought the core business was fairly valued & the property gain was a future windfall. How they managed to pay so much for Madrox(?)and yet produce so little by way of improved financial results is something only mgt can answer. They used to be innovative enough to carve out profitable niches in packaging, it seems they've either lost the knack or the key people involved in design & customer engagement have left. In short the plot appears lost. Good luck Castlefield Tiger if you want to create some strategic change, my fear is the property windfall will mainly be used to repay Bank Loans, holders may wish to ask mgt whether any formal or informal pledges in this regard have been made to the Bank in this regard already..in which case external holders may have every right to feel misled.

Castleford Tiger. Support? I think the family hold over 30% of the shares, so you're unlikely to get any change. As you'll probably know, there's a very long history here and many family members hold shares. The business is part of their identity. The dividend is a 'problem'. The family like it. It pays c 4.8% pa at the current share price (115p). If they sell the business for cash what will replace that income? However, there is a chance that, when the property value has been realised, the family may decide it's their best time to check out .... but they won't be pushed. If no sell out and no big shareholder return on the sale of the property, then the cash will go to growing the packaging business. They've had some good products in the past. With such a small company, if they do design something novel and commercial, it could make a big impact on their figures.

buying close to 120p now. Maybe if a get enough I can gather some support to push some changes here. Apathetic is probably the right word for current board tiger

As expected, the sooner this company sorts out the surplus properties and then liquidates itself the better, has no future as a minnow, directors just running this to keep themselves in jobs, a thoroughly dull bunch of crows with little imagination, companies like this have no future, needs someone to reverse in to it to utilize the listing!

Does anybody know what has happened to the interims? Due on 22nd August according to the website and Sharescope. Delays without warning are not generally good news; nor are delays with warning.

MANAGED a few more today. Not sure why its always 3000 but that's what was offered again. Today at 131.95 so inside market price and my cheapest for some time. Got a nice holding here now but looking for another 30-50k shares which will be in small chunks. Yield of 4.25% makes it ok till this turns the corner. For the record the next batch today were at 135p so very little available. Tiger
