Hadn't spotted that , who are the companies building up a stake ? Consolidation in this sector is common sense, let's see who wins out and who loses.

Two of the UK's biggest tool and equipment hire groups have abandoned secret talks about a £300m merger after a boardroom bust-up prompted two directors to quit. Sky News has learnt that HSS and Speedy Hire had been in preliminary discussions about a tie-up until last month. A deal is understood to have had the backing of a number of the largest shareholders in both companies, which have been hit by a string of profit warnings during the course of this year. However, two Speedy Hire non-executive directors, Chris Masters and James Morley, are said to have opposed the merger, triggering their exit from the company's board. Insiders said on Thursday that Speedy Hire was now lining up Bob Contreras, the chief executive of van rental group Northgate, to replace one of the departed directors. A second new director is also in the process of being recruited. Mr Masters is understood to have been pushing for the ousting of Speedy Hire's chairman, Jan Astrand, a move which angered boardroom colleagues and some of the company's leading investors. Sources said they were hopeful that the resolution of boardroom tensions would lead to a revival of the merger discussions, which could generate substantial cost savings. HSS floated on the stock market earlier this year, with the shares being sold for 210p. However, a number of profit alerts and the exit of its chief executive has sent its value spiralling downward, despite the fact that it should demonstrate respectable growth figures during this financial year. On Thursday its shares, the majority of which continue to be held by Exponent Private Equity, were trading at roughly 51p, giving it a market value of just £80m. Speedy Hire has seen its shares lose more than half their value over the last 12 months, and it now has a market capitalisation of just over £180m. It has blamed its woes on a range of issues, including a lack of equipment, disruption caused by poor IT systems and a mistaken focus on larger clients at the expense of smaller ones. Both companies specialise in leasing tools and equipment such as generators, pumps and concrete mixers, and analysts believe there is considerable logic in combining them. Rothschild and Investec are understood to have been advising Speedy Hire on the early-stage merger talks, with HSBC advising HSS. Both HSS and Speedy Hire declined to comment.

Continuing to slide - Closed at 28/28.75. Looks as though Mr Market may have the same gut feel as bobsisian. Market cap some £150million and last estimate I can find is from Peel Hunt (30/9/15) for £5 million profit for 2016 and £13 million for 2017 Also statement of 28 Sept advised 2nd half weighted (very often shorthand for we havnt a clue but with a lot of luck) but not saying that it is here - more digging needed, Any thoughts as to likely level and further %age drop ?

Market forces seem to be anticipating something more than just poor interim results. Perhaps a pre-emptive capital raising exercise to forestall problems with its lenders. Extraordinary underperformance given the supposed buoyancy at least of its UK end market. The share price has been at these lowly levels before. Will there be an equally turbo charged share price recovery this time round ?

Hi CR,Good to see you here. I bought some SDY today at 36p, as the Bal Sheet strength is now protecting the downside in my view.The company seems somewhat shambolic, but I was impressed with how the most recent pr warn had surprisingly little impact on the shares - they should have dropped 30%, on a bad warning, but only fell 14%. That says to me that the bad news is now probably mostly in the price, but recovery has not yet been factored in.Above all, SDY has a really good Bal Sheet, so that gives downside protection, and also makes risk reward positive in my view, if you are prepared to ride out any further falls.It's not a share that I will buy heavily, but I am happy to have a dabble at this level. Am avoiding HSS due to car crash Bal Sheet.Regards, Paul.

Global economies getting worse not better construction and consumer spend may worsen not improve, the question investors need to ask is will cost savings be enough to prevent any further deterioration in sales?

Im with salpara "..clearly one hell of a mess" ----- ...more to this imho - More engineering ??....at a hire equipt co. ?? - Moving hire kit....they put in an RNS ?? Crystal ball at fulltimeinvestors.com Guesses that They speak with fork tongue And reality includes loss and/or end of contracts Clearly they DO NOT expect bounce back since laid off staff... Via share price chart imho some ppl knew already !! For me, if they cant find a competent MD in recent years then too much risk for me, operationally geared....suffer badly if turnover falls. Spent loads money....to generate fall in turnover and layoffs....you couldnt make it up !!
