|Very encouraging. One sneeze and it travels.|
|Nice share price strengthening in the face fall today!|
|UP SHE GOES AGAIN|
|more to come :
Overall, with a clearer focus, a better integrated venues and sales teams, a lower cost base and good quality business opportunities, we expect to be able to return the Group to a sustainable level of profitability in 2017, and trading for the first two months of the year has been ahead of management expectations.|
|NEXT LEG COMING UP BOOM|
|100 % COMING UP TODAY|
|This has a future I think. If not on its own then as part of another complementary business. I have nibbled a few but having trouble having my orders filled. Not a basket case. People love physical shopping - footfall high and predictable = opportunity for brands & launches. I just hope they can exit Europe (where required) economically as can be expensive in places like France.|
|Results not as bad as I feared and current trading is strong. Bit of a worry about the banking covenants though.
No dividend as previously highlighted.|
|boonkoh: Appear Here - Interesting proposition but no indication of pricing (that I can find) and difference between the package and that offered by SAL . However appears to be very much a competitor in a crowded market place (imo)
Anyone any experience of them or the cost benefit anlaysis between them and SAL ?|
|Potential startup competitor? Check out Appear Here. While they focus on pop up stores and spaces, they have relationships with 8 of the top 10 largest landlords in the UK, as well as Transport for London. So they could easily expand to offering monetisation of the types of spaces that Spaceandpeople do now.|
|Muckshifter my reading of France is the same as yours and I would have preferred it if they had been more explicit|
|Must confess, I haven't been watching sal since selling quite a while ago, but one thing I meant to watch out for was the "result" of the meeting the CEO told Paulypilot about the last time he was interviewed. IIRC, the CEO told PP that he was to meet the French Mall owners the next day, to discuss the results of the trial SAL had carried out in their Malls, which had been mixed and imho far from conclusively positive.
But although I didn't see anything subsequently which spelled out the conclusions of that meeting (may have just missed it), there doesn't seem to be any mention of it, other than a mention of trial costs as an exceptional item, in the latest update. My conclusion is that the trial did not result in further business. Have I missed anything?
|Gostevie,you would think at their current price that there is only one way for this share to go but I wouldn't be too sure on that. SAL do not have the best name in the industry and their admission that some contracts are up for renewal this year and that they do not expect all to be renewed causes alarm. Yes there are many reasons why contracts are not renewed, but doing a sparkling job for the landlord is not one of them.
I do hold shares in SAL but i look daily at the share price with one eye closed.|
|Having previously held shares in SAL between March and May 2015 and making a (very) small profit, I have just dipped my toe in the water again this morning.
I have bought 11,258 shares at 18.55p.
Hoping that the results announcement on 27th March gives cause for optimism.|
|Topvest, like you am not selling at these prices but to be honest not buying either and agree with the tone of your 850.
Incidentally the seller is Hargreave Hale-not HLandsdowne|
|Gresham House Strategic loading up is a positive signal. Hargreaves Landsdowne dumping as is their practice of buying high selling low!|
|More bad news I'm afraid, albeit they seem to have taken the necessary action on the cost base for 2017. More of a mild profit warning than a disaster, but confident in meeting next year's £0.5m profit expectations is not much consolation. It's looking a bit ex-growth now, particularly with the German business looking like it may need to downsize as well. They seem to be falling down more snakes than climbing ladders at the moment to use the CEOs language. Got burnt on this one - they seem to be impacted by shopping centres going ex-growth (an obvious mild headwind), but more significantly a falling market for external providers in this space as shopping centres look to cut cost (impacted results for the lats 2/3 years).
Probably an MBO candidate now as not a bad business to buy for 30-40p if it didn't have the listing costs. At least they still have a net cash position.
Not tempted to sell at 15p given the consensus is for a 1p dividend next year and 2.5p EPS. Of course, that might be a mistake!|
|shhhhhhhhh, you'll wake us all up.|
|There should be a year end trading update in the next 4 weeks.|
|Unfortunately I bought into this dog of a share when it was £0.80p, paying the price now!The information that this company issues is always light on detail and its extremely frustrating to understand where managements head is at. I'm with an earlier poster that they should withdraw from international expansion and concentrate on UK and core business.
This company doesn't have the best name in the trade and I feel that they are going to experience more losses. They made a decision to go after the larger shopping centre groups which isn't the best move imo as it is these groups that have the infrastructure to bring in-house their commercialisation as Intu recently did.|
|I saw there was a webinar on the latest Sal results which I cannot track down...does anyone have the details?
