marktime1231: Hmmmm. After the disappointment of no dividend announcement at the Interims just 6 weeks ago, I wonder what has changed their minds. Nothing significant unpredictable has happened in the meantime, or they would have been obliged to tell us. A hint that there are debates in the boardroom, the competing pressures of rewarding patient investors while satisfying the banks that debt reduction is the priority. We already knew that strong cash flow and eps around an annualised 9p provided scope for restarting the dividend, I assumed wrongly that they were being ultra-conservative and waiting for the first Tuffnells payment to arrive c. September. Maybe it has arrived early, in which case why not say so and why such a stingy payment. A 0.5p is underwhelming, was hoping for a 1p interim and 2p final. The good news is that it is an early ex-div with a short fuse to payday. So there is a chance the share price might rise when the idea sinks in that this is a signal of better news to come, but for now the market is unimpressed and frankly me too. I suspect a 1p interim would have caused a powerful upswing of interest even if we had to wait until September to hear it.

marktime1231: Blast I was sure SNWS would reinstate the dividend, considering we have been patient for so long and an eps of 4.6-5.3p would easily have covered a 1p Interim. Not to be, clearly the pressure from lenders is acute. The board must be content that investor demand will be strong based on value recovery and doesn't need to pander to income hungry private punters. Instead we have the carrot of a special during H2 (not expecting a regular interim to be announced mid term), presumably when the the first £5-6M instalment from the sale of Tuffnells arrives in Sep/Oct. A 1p special would spend about half of that cash. Oh well, my bet that this would become an income banker starting this year has not paid off, and reading between the lines priority through FY23 to be given to paying down debt before resuming regular dividends. I was hoping there would be enough cash flow to keep both investors and lenders happy. The share price does not seem to know how to react yet, even though these results have demonstrated SNWS represents deep value and 40p is a bargain. Maybe it will take a while for the implications to sink in to attract some serious money.

typo56: Lack of growth prospects the problem here IMO, but some investors will buy for the 5% pa divi over some paulty interest in their ISA.
