gbenson1: Hi Johnwise I agree with Chinese Investor, the name Sports Direct has a lot of baggage attached with the NUFC link and the worker right issues, Mike is trying to move upmarket with Flannels and the rest of the buyouts, although Frasers wouldn't of been my first choice for a new branding name.

johnwise: Chinese Investor 16 Dec '19 - 12:31 - 59 of 60 "Change Of Name - Brilliant !" "That the name of the Company be changed from Sports Direct International plc to Frasers Group plc". Stupid decision as it does not identify what the company is selling will result in downturn in sales I will make it simple What would you buy at The Bedding centre = Beds The Suite Centre = Furniture The Carpet Centre = Carpets The Card factory= cards J D Sports = Sports goods Sports Direct = Sports goods Frasers Group plc. ?

sentimentrules: I've no idea. I'm out by December so not looking ahead much on auditors. All the same anyway re rubbish. As fraudulent accounts across the 350 over the years suggest. Or ridiculous variances from the last audit etc. .its just something in name only. Offers nothing to protect investors on the whole.

jackthecat: See below, best of luck if you hold. Justin Urquhart Stewart, a fund manager at Seven Investment Management, said the delayed publication of the results was “frankly a pathetic way to run a business”. Sign up to the daily Business Today email or follow Guardian Business on Twitter at @BusinessDesk “Mike Ashley doesn’t care about the City [investors] very much. As far as he is concerned he is used to running a business his way,” he told the BBC’s

eggy6198: We'll see if there's any more fallout out today from Friday's shambolic performance from Sports Direct, when it failed to produce its results on time, having already delayed them once. When it did publish the results, there was an unexpected £605m tax bill from Belgian authorities. "This is amateur week... it is frankly a pathetic way to run a business," says Justin Urquhart Stewart, from Seven Investment Management. "Mike Ashley doesn't care about the City [investors] very much. As far as he is concerned he is used to running a business his way." House of Fraser, which Sports Direct bought a year ago, "is a mess and really needs sorting out", Mr Urquhart tells Wake Up To Money.

debsdowner: Its usually too late when the end is in sight, you do not hear the bang of the gun when you are shot through the heart. And so it is that Mike Ashley's ego and lust for power and greed has reaped what he has sown and let it be a warning that greed and power are in themselves a warning shot in advance of a leap from the dark which many should have seen but were themselves blinded by their own failure to do proper research. But let the wise take heart in their prudence and take comfort that they to could have been victims as well. As one who understands retail in particular I have followed Sports Direct through my interest in Debenhams but not as an investment but as a warning to investors not to be taken in by management and statements of better times to come when through the mist one could see trouble ahead.

cautious7: Hopefully he has given another interview to the FT/etc and we will get more from the horses mouth. Caution advised. 1: Why were the results delayed by 2 weeks?? 2: Shares could easily be suspended before markets open Monday if volatility, massive volatity is expected and this will be to clarify the situation. However, imo spd has had more than enough time 3: As we all know, high street shops and stores are having a rought, v roguh time only the supermarkets are really keeping their head above water. I am hoping to join in a bit later in the day after the crash, bounce, steady as she goes and another crash and this is why i expect a suspension of these shares as the big investors may demand that. DYOR Regards C7 - For the last 20 years or so seen all shares not as an investment but 100% gamblimg like on the dogs

buywell2: Mike: Get her back mate , whatever it takes, and get back to basics The next 2 to 3 years are going to be rough for all Good Luck KAREN BYERS Karen Byers has been an invaluable member of the Sports Direct team for over 28 years, however as the focus of the Group moves to an elevated offering, including shop fits, this meant that Karen was no longer able to do the things she loved and was good at for so many years. Many elements at which Karen excelled now fall under the remit of third-party brands as we create the elevated stores they and our customers now demand. We wish her well for the future and consider the door to always be open if she wants to re-engage with the Group in a consultant role. buywell2 15 Jul '19 - 09:09 - 6120 of 6389 Edit The departure of Karen Buyers seems to have caused a major loss of confidence in many investors, MA is reported to have said she was ''the real brains behind Sports Direct''. Now she is not there , I wonder if the BOD can persuade MA likewise ? P/E is still showing 50 , which could IMO get halved after 200p , 100p could chartwise happen Recent forays into high st acquisitions in the face of increased on-line selling does not add up dyor

effortless cool: Results are a great read! CONSENSUS Our acquisition of House of Fraser as noted above has led to significant uncertainty as to the future profitability of the group as a whole, albeit not impacting the going concern assessment of the group. There are significant operational and investment issues we are trying to rectify based on the appalling mismanagement of House of Fraser, prior to its acquisition by the Sports Direct Group, that led to its downfall. Although we have put significant effort into integrating the business into the Sports Direct operational model, including its processes and KPIs, we are still some way from reaching an operating norm. We cannot yet confirm, or even predict, with enough material accuracy what the overall estate will look like in the near term, and this will depend on a combination of factors including brand allowances, current and projected store performance, and rental deals. To be able to invest in the estate, including experiential, we need to confirm the longer-term estate via freehold acquisitions and longer term leases. We believe this will help drive improved performance through greater brand allowances and increased footfall. Based on this we will not be giving a consensus to the market for FY20 performance. Any projections produced by third parties such as research analysts are not produced on behalf of Sports Direct International plc and Sports Direct International plc takes no responsibility for such projections. As a result prospective investors and other market participants should not treat, and Sports Direct International plc does not intend to treat, the financial projections produced by third parties as indicative of the market expectations of Sports Direct International plc's future financial performance. We specifically note that we are under no obligation to correct estimates made by financial analysts or to inform the market should we come to believe that our actual performance will differ from those estimates. This is not our normal approach, nor a normal approach taken by most listed businesses, however given the current circumstances outlined above we feel it is the correct course of action and it is important that investors understand this current differentiation. We will review the current situation again at the half year and depending on factors mentioned above being resolved to a suitable extent we may be able to give guidance at that point.
