Without looking into the facts surrounding SFE or the glazing market in general - The problem here is clearly management. I base that on the approach I received when I asked this company to quote for a sizeable job. The arrogance and pushiness of the sales staff made a time share rep. appear laid back. The whole affair stank of personnel on highly geared commission based remuneration. That attitude always comes from above! 'Significant new competition' is an excuse. The industry as a whole seems to be in good health. I would avoid investment here until a major management shake up takes place, if it's not already too late. How often have I seen all this before. PS. Rant over!

why? my views are the same. I dont expect 90p. the usually pessimistic charlie campbell at liberum now predicts 140p, but as ever, set a conservative tp of 130p. money to be made here.

Hmm interesting about SafeGlaze. You would have thought they had some legal avenues to explore. I thought that one of Safestyle competitive advantages was a single site manufacturing facility. The new operation certainly won’t have that without substantial capital. Nevertheless, Safestyle haven’t been very open about the departures until now. Even now they haven’t really been very transparent and there is more info on this B.B. It does explain the decline, if the highly successful sales organisation built up over years have all departed and are now focused on taking Safestyle business. The director sale is a bit naughty as he hasn’t really explained what is actually going on and banked profits on the quiet. Not very ethical. Disappointed.

PS I had a quote from Safestyle a couple of weeks ago for a full set of new PVC windows and doors. On seeing this quote a local independent company said they could do the same job for 25% less ! They start next week.

There won't be any upturn. The market is cut throat. Sales/margins under huge pressure from competitors who are slashing prices. Safestyle are doomed.

"The Group continues to be cash generative, with a strong cash position and robust balance sheet. Safestyle remains very well invested for any upturn in demand and the Board expects the benefits of its cost savings programme to take effect in 2018, particularly in the second half."

Do they have any competitive advantage like scale or technology or is it just some sales people.

I suggest deliberately close to enjoy the brand halo from sfe. although sone will find the concept of a glazing company having a halo, laughable.

Aren't the names a bit too similar? The lawyers must have said ok.

I believe their business leaders and some team members exited safestyle. presumably without a non compete clause in their contracts. and with full knowledge of how sfe do business. no doubt sfe lawyers have given this the once over and concluded no worthwhile action.

a review on the web i found: Hi xxx, SafeGlaze UK have no links with Safestyle. We're a completely separate company. There is no shared ownership, no partnership or monetary connection. Our windows come from a different manufacturer, which is why we're able to offer a 15 year guarantee over safestyle's 10. Our head office is based down the road from Safestyle's in Bradford and that's the closest our company is to them. Our competitors are scared and so they should be. We offer a better product and provide a... wasn't able to get the last part of the message.

Is this the competitor? https://safeglazeuk.com/ If so, that's going to be a problem, IMO. They promise to beat quotes. Once people have their glazing done, it's years before they do it again. So the business that is lost to safeglaze will be gone for a very long time. What will SFE do?

Reading through the posts, Safeglaze have been put forward as the aggressive new entrant. Companies House shows Niamac Developments t/a Safeglaze UK was incorporated on 21st August 2017. So they've been in existence for 6 months and are already causing problems? Anyone with any info?

Used to hold this, just looking again for the future, think I will steer clear at the moment. Well done tobyteddy yours was accurate information.

Very disappointing update this morning and so early in 2018. Clearly its now a value stock. I must admit being a bit baffled with this one having bought originally at 165p. It was a great little business, but seems to be really struggling of late. I'm not sure that I have done anything wrong other than maybe not exiting at the first warning, but I don't think anyone would have expected the repeated warnings that followed. This one is definitely the worst warning. Oh well, the dividend is still good and its got a strong balance sheet. I'm going to hold in here for better times. Will probably be a good buy when, and if, it finally turns around. Does anyone have some industry intelligence as to what is happening?

RNS TU out: The activities of an aggressive new market entrant have added to an already competitive landscape and impacted the Group in certain areas of its operations. As a result, the Group's order intake in 2018 to date has been disappointing and below our expectations.

Seriously Shaker44, All those who have gone, are top sales, top canvesser's top surveyors..etc. All gone to the new competitor, who are already tv advertising! It's a forced restructure,and the cost base is still the same! . although it's not all doom and gloom,that sort of upheaval takes some time to sort out, the share price can really only go one way for now.imho...[don't hold , never will]
