Report from thebusinessdesk.com regarding Brantano Administration:- "Administrators at PwC said a sale of the company was explored with Shoe Zone rumoured to be in the running. However a deal could not be completed and the historic shoe retailer was placed into administration for the second time this year"

This was finnCap's comment from Oct 2015: "Brantano has 140 stores and 40 concessions in the UK. Its product mix is geared into brands and higher price points relative to Shoe Zone and there is also a large Clarks representation. It has a wider family footwear offering than Deichmann, but suffers from poor distribution, overstaffing and over-complexity. Management estimates that Brantano competes directly through 50 stores. Operations are currently loss-making and we understand that the business is for sale. This would free up capacity in the market and could offer Shoe Zone some store-specific opportunities. Brantano incorporates Jones the Bootmaker, which has been trading for 150 years and focuses on a wide range of fashion-forward and exclusive own-branded footwear and accessories for men, ladies and children, as well as brands such as Gabor and Ted Baker – www.brantano.co.uk.

Agreed. They will cherry pick the good parts no doubt. Brantano has been on the edge several times. They are not a viable company.

I think I'd prefer them to pick up any stores they want from the administrators as that gives them maximum negotiation strength with landlords. Can't see them overpaying either...

Ok Found the background, Brantano went bust last year, administrator sold 81 stores to newco , that is now struggling, looks like all sites are retail park so big box possible, or run as a separate fascia with slightly different more upmarket position, all logistics and buying and supporting functions could be handled by Shoe , both co.s are Leicester based so integration would be straightforward, could be v.intersting

Found this - doesn't look like its a done deal yet:- "The bidding war for Brantano has escalated as footwear retailer Shoe Zone submits a bid to buy out its rival, according to Sky News. Shoe Zone joins Pavers and Edinburgh Woolen Mill as potential new owners for the ailing retailer, which filed a notice of intention to appoint administrators last week. A deal is expected to be made by the end of the week, meaning Shoe Zone is likely to be one of the final bidders for the company. The bid for Brantano, which is valued at around £88 million, is a bold move for Shoe Zone off the back of store closures and revenue falls last year. Alteri, which owns Brantano, also announced the imminent administration of its sister company Jones Bootmakers, with potential job losses for both companies topping 2000. Alteri has stated that has confidence a buyer will be found for both."

Hm. Interesting. But I am not going to pass judgement till I have investigated further.

Not sure I like today's news - this might not be the moment to be spending a lot of money buying up a bust rival!

Just divi and tip reactions. Nothing fundamental going on, no recent news events to trigger the fall. If it drops further, I use my dividend cash to add more! :-)

Downward trendline since Feb 2015 is still in play. Drop to £1.25 could be on the cards short term. I'm not too worried though, plenty of value, great divis, growth from out of town retail shops and third party shoes and its majority owned by the founders.

Hi fenners66 I read that part of the RNS as relating to current actions post currency moves, i.e. Keeping price point and margin stable by more direct sourcing and bringing in other ranges purses handbags etc. We'll get more detail in the full year release shortly anyhow, I'm attributing recent moves to short term divi players and tip induced numpties..

rhomboid - the pertinent part of my question was " the impact was not flowing through to the last accounts." So I noted the comment about supply chain but that was historical - the effect of slumping £ was yet to be seen and quantified. I am guessing that the market suspects margins have fallen and despite the magazine related tip and rise there is still underlying worry here , hence the rapid fall back and even further. My guess also now would be that rate rises are being factored in which may also lead to profit erosion hence further falls. For me its a wait and see.......

From the results they seem to be managing well, as margins are going up; "We remain committed to offering our customers the best value possible and have maintained key price points for our Core Value Lines despite difficult currency headwinds. Along with our low prices we have increased the value proposition by extending the number of lines in multi-buy deals (e.g. '2 for £8'). This, along with range enhancements has improved average transaction value by 5% during the year. We have continued to increase our direct sourcing and as a result, footwear orders placed directly with overseas factories increased to 72.2% (2015; 62.1%) of total footwear orders. Working closely with our source of manufacture has helped maintain gross product margins as well as improving communication and control across the supply chain."

I was keeping my eye on them as a potential hi yield candidate, looked at the rise over the last few days and thought I had missed the boat. However I had held off pending some visibility over the effect of the declining pound. I guess that they import the majority of the shoes, and the impact was not flowing through to the last accounts. Any thoughts on the potential impact?

Correct. Sharescope has the divi wrong.

Final dividend is 6.8p plus special dividend of 8.0p = 14.8p
