At the current price, SAL represents just 0.7% of assets for GHS. If they sold their stake they would probably get even less for it. I expect this has gone into the bottom drawer and little management time is wasted on it. This is a subscale business that had the potential to grow at one point, but it seems that the market for physical promotion just isn't there in any scale. I expect they will de-list at some point and remain a private business that will simply plod along, generate ok returns in the good years and not much in the bad years.

I think people who were more decisive than me and who sold out first thing Tuesday morning probably made a better decision than mine of generally faffing around. The results and indeed the forecast could have been worse and Germany encouraging-although of course we have had our false dawns there. Two preoccupations. One is what will Gresham House do? For me good that over the last years we have said goodbye to Hargreave Hale without too much of an adverse impact here. I do not see any major external shareholder come in here with a notifiable stake. The second is why is this with its marcap of about £2.2m even listed? It is not even for the options of the directors which are so far out of the money, except those granted on October 2. PS Checked that the remuneration of the execs while generous was in no way obscene

Yes, another average year but below expectation. Looks better for FY20, but I get the feeling we have been here before. I suspect they will maintain the 0.5p dividend if they make a small profit as planned, and things still look good for next year. No point selling really with the share price already on the floor. Whether they can come up with something new remains a big question. Probably not, but you never know!

Another set of bang average results with more promises of jam in the future. If this is what the market value S&P currently then I can't see the share price increasing to previous levels as for me they are continuing with their existing approach. They also don't make many friends in the market place and due to their model they engage more with the larger experiential model - one that is very susceptible to a market downturn. I'm sure that if they had the money then the directors would want to take this share private.

Joe, don't get your first point at all, nothing about either Nancy or Matthew retiring and having a listing should make no difference. The problem with SAL is their reputation - they are known for their arrogance and they are burning bridges as they go along losing accounts. For sure they have some of the biggest contracts, British Land and Network Rail and they can do fulfilment but if they lose one or more of their big clients then things will unravel. To have a market cap of £2.73m is appalling and they as executive directors have done a lousy job

The costs of running a public company must be massively disproportionate for the size of business this is, but if they want to exit at some point due to retirement etc then a listing should enable an orderly exit assuming the key man/woman risk is mitigated. Biggest threat I reckon has to be expansion and 'eye off ball' plus overseas risks not properly managed. Going for growth is great but they have always mucked it up in the past. Slow organic growth in the market you know is surely better?

There is a concern that after getting some senior exec salaries off their books SAL directors are now going to be looking to pick up on the cheap and taking it back private - can't see many shareholders making much money out of this if they do. Views?

Didn't Matthew Bending effectively start SAL many years ago from nothing? Lets hope he comes up with something new to turn this ship around. We also have Gresham House behind us as shareholders. I'm hopeful, that something can be salvaged....but realistic at the same time. Not one of my better investments!

1AX, you are correct, I just didn't want to get into the "winter was too cold and summer too hot" debacle - never heard so much rubbish in my life! The outsourced model is still strong, it is only the larger groups that have brought their commercialisation in-house. Smaller groups and centres are too small to have the database/ client relationships to make it work for them. The train station market is a difficult one and one that is mainly popular with the larger brands, hence my point earlier that when they tighten their belts it really affects S&P

It's so small I'm not sure external managers/directors coming in would help. Too much of a risk. It's niche and could get a transformational contract or go bust after running out of cash. I hope the dividend is affordable. I assume they have a better picture of what the outlook is than us!

robbothered good point but I think the problems seem to run deeper than just that. Not sure how they forgot the summer or world cup when forecasting but their Brand Experience figures are worrying, they have the train station market which is immune to hot summers (people still have to go into work). The outsourced model seems to be outdated as venues bring sales in-house and with a lack of detail for renewals you can only wonder at what measures they have taken to renew contracts. Feels very much like Bending is their version of Theresa May, bring back the same old policies each year and surprisingly getting the same result!

topvest, not sure where you are getting your info from and why on earth do you feel MB will be able to turn this around? FYI, the shopping mall market is challenging for sure but there are plenty of opportunities for the nimble operator. Retail is changing, can S&P change with it? Their problem is that they are strong with the larger brand activations but struggle with local/ regional operators. It is more noticeable on S&P bottom line when big or brands pull their marketing budgets and they have little to fill the gaps. The smaller, local new start up market is doing very well but this is where S&P gap is in the market.

Topvest you have more faith than I. The directors have had long enough and have underperformed for far too long. I can only hope they are so cheap now someone will buy them but I would not invest anymore here unless changes are made.

No, we have to hope that Matthew Bending can turn it around. Not sure anyone else will. Trouble is they are pushing water uphill in the shopping mall market at the moment!

TraderGLT, totally agree. I understand a weekend lost for the beast from the East but the World Cup is every 4 years, on the same dates, so how was this not forecast. As for the summer.......that is every year and visitors to venues fall across the school holidays. I worry that this is much more about the state of retail and how shopping habits are changing, no mention of that by the Chairman! The biggest disappointment was not seeing the board fall on their swords. Same old excuses when things are tough and tightening the belt has not helped, time for a change!

FY results in line with New Year guidance and Group sufficiently confident to recommend a 0.5p dividend. Full research note and forecasts freely available from Equity Dev now: https://www.equitydevelopment.co.uk/edreader/?ltkn=%5bID%5d&d=%3D%3DwN1UjM

Arthur, not sure the outlook is that much improved for them. The hammerson contract is based on charity promotions and we're still waiting for the BL tender winners to be announced. I'm a shareholder but i think more bad news will be coming over the next few months.

I'm a bit surprised at the extent of the fall today given that the results were flagged and the oulook is supposedly much improved.

Could be more bad news heading their way soon. The British Land contract is up for tender and I think it unlikely that they will hold onto all of their sites. There is also further bad news brewing, just hope that they have some good news on the horizon. It is always difficult to continue to perform when you are market leader and there is a pack chasing after your business.

topvest the performance of this stock is woeful! If a sports team had performed like this over 1 year let alone 5 there would be wholesale changes. The market is not declining, advertising revenues are increasing, in the OOH sector they are increasing even quicker. Failure to retain venues, to adapt to competition, move into other sectors has resulted in this. Footfall is down but spend by brands who wish to connect with customers face to face is up, traditional large scale retail leases are down (they do not do this) but start up retail is booming where is the capitalising on that market.

A bit harsh. They are managing things reasonably well. It's just that the market is declining...technological obsolescence of shopping centres! They will need to adapt into adjacent areas.
