davidosh: Additionally as Mervyn by his own words was giving it high fives for the fact the share price was almost double the level from when he became chairman then I wonder if he could provide the same data showing how well the share price has performed since he first became a director 'Bigging up' the performance over a set period may not be a clever idea as loyal shareholders who have been invested since MK became a director, whether 'keyboard warriors' or not, have seen little benefit and are probably down on their investment compared to putting it in a bank account or premium bonds let alone comparing it with the AIM market. Happy to be corrected but there was a 1 for 10 consolidation in Feb 2003 and there was an effective 1 for 6.25 consolidation in September 2009 so it would now be a low single digit penny stock if not for those actions
castleford tiger: I have little to add but I do find the statement upsetting. 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. I have no idea if the above is targeted at me or who in particular. I certainly cannot remember seeing offensive remarks. The much discussed dividend issue both at the AGM and on here is a healthy debate. Most posters do have a business background. We take a day out of our business to attend an AGM. We also have hard cash in the company. In my case almost £300k. We are entitled to look and discuss and to give ideas to the BOD. It is almost 10 years since we suggested direct selling via an e platform. It is fair and equitable that shareholders who take the bad times also get to share in the profits. The return over 20/10/5 years has been poor IN MY OPINION. The share price has only just kicked on and I guess that's partly due to the buying of the Jupiter stake. Directors need to remember they are employed by the company and the company is owned by shareholders. If time was spent via the NOMAD discussing the MM and getting to grips with the trading of the shares we would all gain. Often a 10% spread puts off buyers. Todays opening mark down was another example. It was not caused by sellers. Whilst I also see the continuity plan with Jim stepping up I am unsure its the right move. Why replace the good FD rather than bring in someone with some new ideas with contacts in the business? Anyway the numbers were good and I don't doubt the team are good at their jobs. However I hear little about a 5 year plan? Where are we going and do we have a strategic plan? tiger and for the record they know who I am and have done for many years.
bozzy_s: This has been on my monitor for 15+ years. I was a shareholder many years ago. Still follow the results, trading updates etc, as it remains so incredibly undervalued (i.e the market sees TND's management as liabilities). Today's RNS was one of the worst I've ever seen. Why did the NOMAD sign it off? The former chairman comes across as a laughing stock. This is one of the best bulletin boards on ADVFN. Chocked full of successful entrepreneurs / investors. He should try reading BBs of other AIM listed microcaps. That's where he'll find 'keyboard warriors'! If shareholders asking for a fair dividend is his definition of trolls / keyboard warriors, it's just as well he's going. He'd be thrown out. What an utterly clueless prat. What a ridiculous RNS!! Hopefully for you guys this is the start of better management, fairer dividends, and therefore a much, much higher share price.
maddox: Our Chairman clearly has a personality disorder - why on earth would he put his own feelings of resentment into a Trading Update. Completely detracts from the positive results. Sad. He should have thanked the 'keyboard warriors' for resurrecting the share price such that he can bow-out with a better share price record than would otherwise have been the case. Question in my mind is - did he jump or was he pushed?
davidosh: Graham1TY.....I think you track most things about Tandem. What was the share price when Mervyn became a director at Tandem? What has been the effective share price growth rate since then? All the aquisitions overseen by Mervyn have not really delivered shareholder value or if they have the value does not seem to have gone to shareholders !
graham1ty: I am not quite sure why Mervyn crows about the share price. If you take the share price before an enterprising group of shareholders took out Jupiter, you get closer to 175p. So, from 110p when he was appointed, almost exactly ten years ago, it has risen about 60% Over ten years. Allowing for compounding, that is about 4.8% per annum growth. Not really something to crow about ?
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: David If the economy takes a big hit then relying on borrowing or selling the freehold as implied in your statement doesn't sound a good idea to me. Once you start borrowing from banks then a lot of time would be consumed looking after that. The banks also have an impact on strategy so to be avoided if possible. The economic outlook in my view is worrying. Not only Brexit paralysis or no deal but the dreadful prospect of having Boris in charge. The country and consumers are up to their eyes in debt. A very deep recession is quite possible. I don't think Directors or shareholders for that matter would accept a low opportunistic bid. The Directors have a lot of shares so like you will want a much higher share price that fairly values the company. I haven't attended the AGM it's too far to travel. I think they have a talented and dynamic board and an optimistic about the future. I am happy to let them get on with running the business and let the share price catch up with events. I don't think we will have long to wait now. A good trading update on the 27th and 3 quid should be in sight. If they can generate 3 m in profits in the year ahead and have a reasonable outlook then 5 or 6 quid would be reasonable. I have observed companies on AIM that spend too much time trying to push their share prices. It works for a while but over the longer term the only thing that matters are the financial results. The one exception being tech or pharma companies that have new products under development and then future potential governs the share price. I get the impression the Tandem management are very busy. Just look at the amount of activity that is going on in this business. New product designs and launches. Cost control against an unfavourable exchange rate. Complex supply chain management. New IT systems etc etc.
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.
