davidosh: amt....You said... Davidosh. I hope we can agree to keep our posts civil and reasonably friendly and not start to get personal. Well I did not think I was being anything less than civil or friendly. I have been on here, and apparently a shareholder, almost as long as you so the last thing I wish to do is be unfriendly. We have suffered together even if you have suffered in ignorance! I have actually attended Agms and I can assure you any suggestion that the board and especially Mervyn are now becoming interested in investor relations is total hogwash....What have we seen that has changed since the last Agm exactly one year on...? What happened to the shareholder/investor relations committee idea that Mervyn suggested was already in motion !? You are not likely to see anything happen at Agms as look at the current situation......they will not even consider a Zoom link and frankly just want shareholders stay away or go quiet. Presentations should be done when results are announced so that shareholders and investors have a chance to fulluy understand historic numbers and look to the future with best guidance from the board as there is zero input from brokers and no forecasts. Why is the Agm the only time they can do a presentation or are you suggesting it is just once a year that they need to worry about those 'pesky' shareholders !? If you wish I will set up a shareholder zoom call and we can all try to agree a few things as owners if you are coming from it at such a different angle than 85% of the other shareholders. It is the fact that the board have been so poor on investor relations and so poor at making us feel like shareholders matter that has got us into this mess. If you think you can be a long term investor and make money by timing the highs and lows of a share price in a company that is off 23% in 20 years whilst the AIM market in sensibly run ,dividend payingcompanies is up over 200% then best of luck but I promise I can show you 80% of companies in my portfolio that have done far better than Tandem
amt: I think you are taking my 20 years a bit too literally, as a point in time. I should have said over the last couple of decades. If you steadily accumulated the dips or even the mid prices you would have done well or very well. Also if you compare with the Aim index it's a long way ahead of that in terms of share price performance and many of the companies that were on Aim in 2000 don't exist anymore. Remember share prices in general went through the roof 20 years ago so it's not a realistic starting point. The Aim index hit 3000 at one point, now its below 900.
jaknife: "If you look at the share price over the last 20 years you will see its been a good performing share." FWIW the share price has fallen over the last 20 years and at the current 230p is down 23%. Here's the chart: On the face of it you'll disagree with me but that's because the chart is missing a very key event from 2003. on 3 Feb 2003, Tandem acquired MV Sports Group plc and in conjunction with that offer: "Tandem is planning a share capital reorganisation which, if approved by its shareholders, will result in an effective consolidation of the Tandem Ordinary Shares on a ten for one basis prior to the Scheme becoming effective." See: Https:// So when you look at the chart above, it doesn't actually start at 30p, but it starts at 300p, allowing for the consolidation! JakNife
dan_the_epic: Amt says "If you look at the share price over the last 20 years you will see its been a good performing share." The irony is he has not even looked at this himself because the share price has been awful over the last 20 years !
amt: Davidosh. I hope we can agree to keep our posts civil and reasonably friendly and not start to get personal. I have a couple of decades of investing on Aim and see things differently, that's all. I am not a fan of Brokers and their forecasts. I would rather make my own decisions and forecasts. I have so many experiences on Aim of companies that have Brokers that make forecasts and set price targets that turn out to be completely wrong. It's expensive and I am sure consumes valuable time for little benefit for small relatively simple businesses. I would rather do my own research and not be influenced by highly paid brokers. Regarding presentations, I said it was something that would be a good idea at the AGM. and having it filmed would be a good thing. I thought there had been presentations at the AGM in the past by the way but maybe my memory is wrong. I have never attended one but have read from often positive feedback on this thread from those good enough to post feedback. I am not sure it's a good idea getting Brokers involved with forecasts and promoting the company that way. At the end of the day the share price will take care of itself. If you look at the share price over the last 20 years you will see its been a good performing share. Maybe you or others were unlucky and invested at peaks rather than troughs. That's where I have benefited by having the confidence in my convictions and buying in when the share price is low.
amt: Graham. The level of Corporate Governance expected for a fully listed company is at a totally different level from an Aim company. The rules and expectation are different. I am very happy with my investment in Tandem and its Corporate Governance. Its given me a good return. I don't see what all the fuss is about. It seems a lot of valuable time has been spent on what may be a technicality or maybe not any breach of the articles at all. The big picture is over a relatively trivial amount of money and anyway the shareholders approved it and its shown in the accounts. I can tell you I do have faith and trust in the way the company has been run. At the end of the day after a couple of decades I have no reason to think otherwise. I do have concerns about their eye being taken off the ball just at a point when the share price was starting to go towards the true value of the company. I should think more than ever at this incredibly difficult time the management will need to be fully concentrated on the day to day running of the business. I should think to write a respond like that and get all the Directors to approve it is a considerable distraction. The timing could not have been worse. When I invest in any Aim company I go in with my eyes open and with a lot of scepticism. After time though you get to know the good from the bad and Tandem is right up near the best of my investments and if the share price had continued upwards to about 5 quid would have become exceptional Tandem tell it how it is by the way and not with a load of hype of some Aim companies who are trying to push their share price up. Take a look at Versarian for example. That approach may help a short term jump in the share price. I know sometimes investors have got upset with the Directors for being Conservative with their outlook statements but over time that leads to stability. That's another reason why I trust the Directors with my hard earned money. I expect if you did an analysis of all the Aim companies of a similar market size you would find that Tandem would be one of the best in terms of Corporate Governance and trustworthiness.
amt: It looks like shareholders are shooting themselves in the foot. I have been invested for many years and made a decent return on an ever rising share price with large ups and downs along the way. Plus a good dividend although I am more interested in capital growth so not really interested in the income. Now when the share price is in a bull phase there is a danger of derailing it over some minor potential technicality of 20,000 quid. It's all a distraction when there is a huge opportunity for the business to move forward in a booming bike market. Its not just for the sake of making money by the way. The country needs bikes as an essential resource to help it get through this by both keeping people healthy and getting to work. Let alone dealing with all the health and safety issues at an unprecedented time. There are not many companies that have managed to ride out this Pandemic successfully which has brought the economy to its knees. In many cases its about survival. Companies also have a responsibility to its employees which need looking after in such terrible times. Let's get a sense of proportion on what is important in these difficult times and support those who I am sure are doing the best they can to keep things going.
davidosh: That is a shocking rant by Mervyn at a time when he should be praising everyone including loyal shareholders for their continued support. It says more about Mervyn than it does about the company. If the BOD had engaged more with shareholders by doing presentations over the years then they would not have all the discussion that inevitably concentrates attention and frustration on BBs. Our only opportunity to engage was at the Agm whereas 90% of listed companies do results presentations at least once and often twice a year. In this technological age they could have done a results conference call or webcast if they really did not want to leave the Tandem HQ... Mervyn says.... When I was appointed Non-Executive Chairman the share price was 110.5p. Today as I announce my intention to step down the price is 205p per share. Despite this, it is disappointing that internet posters, who often hide behind absurd pseudonyms, continue to type inaccurate statements and offensive remarks. There are an irritating few of these keyboard warriors who have no commercial experience but think that they could run the Group better. So.... 1. Interesting that he prefers to select the share price at the point where he became chairman and not the point where he became a director !!? 2. The internet posters are not hiding. At least 70% of us are generally at the Agms and he is aware of the names behind many of the pseudonyms and has asked me personally for the real names of others. 3. Mervyn reads Advfn all the time. I would not be at all surprised if he has not posted here himself and certainly does not use his own name. 4. In my experience those companies so concerned about postings by shareholders on BBs have a reason for being concerned. The previous shareholder attack by Greengiant was extinguished with the use of shareholder funds in order to maintain the status quo.
amt: Davidosh. Not sure if I have got these numbers correct but it seems the share price Ten years was about 50p. So a 4 fold gain since then plus dividends of about 36p is a good return in my book. Ft index up by about 50% in the same period. Don't understand your comment about why bother to list the shares on AIM. I think having the people who manage a company incentivised by creating value and lifting the share price is important in my opinion. Employees can have an interest in their company also and realise any gains easily. Many companies on Aim go back to the market and raise funds through issuing shares and diluting existing shareholders which is a reason for having a listing. Fortunately Tandem haven't done that. They have done the reverse and bought shares back. Overall I am more than happy with my longterm investment here. Most of my Aim shares have been disasters. I think our main point of disagreement is how you get the share price up. My view is by producing good numbers consistently while perhaps you think by promoting the company to the market. Anomalies in valuation don't last that long. The market will take care of that over time. I didn't say there was shareholder distraction but there might be if they are pushed down that route again like happened a few years ago. I think the Annual and interim reports plus two trading updates per year is fine. They provide plenty of detail and tell it how it is. A short presentation at the AGM I agree would be a good idea. However getting brokers involved is expensive and a waste of money. It's up to individuals to make their own assessments. Forecasting in these markets is extremely difficult. If they go down that route of having brokers involved then a lot of time and distraction plus pressure to make short term fixes increases. Directors have plenty of shares which shows their commitment and direct interest in getting the share price unlike many other AIM companies by the way.
amt: One of the reasons for the undervaluation is that over the years eps has tended to fluctuate and turnover has been impacted by a decline in the bike business. However in the last couple of years there are some very encouraging signs that the toy business is doing very well and the bike business is stabilising. If we get a decent set of results this year then the share price should be due for a major recalibration. Once the market cap gets to a higher level then it would get on to the radar of the bigger fund managers. It seems to me that the management of the company have been very proactive in running this business both through acquisitions in the past and continually driving the business forward with tight cost control and improving margins. Some companies put a lot of resource into attempting to drive their share price forward through presentations and close contact with investors and potential investors. This all takes time and takes resources away from running the business. When all said and done its the financial results and longer term trends that will drive the share price. I think we have to be careful not to divert management time away from running the business. It seems odd to me that people are complaining now just when things are looking promising. The share price up over 80% since the start of the year. We also have to remember that the UK consumer market is very tough at the moment and the falling pound due to Brexit is making it even more difficult. I think they need to build a war chest in case of disruption from a no deal Brexit or indeed a continuing paralysis in Brexit in general. The political situation is worrying and the prospect of a Corbyn government frightening in what it could do to the pound. Its certainly not the time to be paying large dividends. The yield is respectable as is the dividend growth. Now is the time for patience and to let the results do the talking. Always best over the longer term to let the management concentrate on running the business and let the share price take care of itself.
