While the Netherlands, Germany, Denmark, Belgium and France have long embraced them – almost 30% of all new cycles sold in Holland are pedelecs – the UK lags behind. But this is changing: ebike sales rose from 5% of the UK bike market in 2015 to 12% in 2016. Halfords dubbed 2017 the “year of the ebike” after a 220% sales increase.

Demand for e-bikes growing rapidly globally as over number of over 50's grows. Probably true in UK so a good opportunity.

Pound looks like will be say 10% lower vs last year whereas at one stage it was heading for 20% lower so overall margins will probably hold up better than expected at the last trading statement.

Woozle agree bikes has been difficult but now stabilised and profitable.Dont agree about Toys they have very good brands and growth has been very strong over the last few years. Castkeford. Pound has been weak since the referendum and we are all about 15% effectively worse off already without having left the EU so hope its temporary. However in the last month the Dollar has been very weak indeed so pound has gained ground in the last few weeks vs Dollar and stabalised against strong Euro.

#3320, The Takeover Panel are a bunch of spineless and toothless so-and-so's who have as much chance of policing a concert party as I have of winning Olympic gold! Several years ago, when fighting a Chairman who took his company private on the cheap, I provided evidence to the Panel that he had built an effective 50%+ holding before submitting a low-ball bid underpinned by "irrevocable undertakings" from his group, including his sister under her married name and someone else who turned out to be a Trustee of a family Trust. The Takeover Panel came to the unlikely conclusion that these people had been unconnected whilst building their stake. When I asked how on earth the Panel had come to this conclusion, the answer was "Because we asked the Chairman, and he said so"!! Carry on chatting. You need have no fear of the TP.

The valuation is attractive, but do they have exposure to Toys r Us?

I've been in TND when I was a fund manager because the valuation is/was very attractive. Its markets are very tough and not least because Argos accounts for so much of its sales. Moreover, it's not sitting on very attractive licenses, like say Character Group, and it's bikes are very much secondary brands. Not that I'm the arbiter of growth but I find it hard to see where the growth is going to come from. I do agree that new management is needed as the current crop who - as has been pointed out - have been there years. We were in when Graham Waldron (spelling?) was the Chairman (he was chairman at Headlam at the time and I think that it's a boring but thoroughly underrated company). As GW came from a distribution business we thought that he could help grow the business but it's been static for years. One approach could be to pick up mismanaged or underinvested brands that would benefit from TND's distribution but I don't how many of those there are. Why don't they try and poach a senior MD from Character?

CT, Just be careful about these chats. The target over panel don't take kindly to large shareholders talking to each other. I know a very small company that was taken private because it was deemed a concert party by the panel. w1 PS Sorry not to make DTG AGM but got caught up with something at home

Weak Dollar should help the margin here which should make a big difference to bottom line with sales approaching 40 million. Last trading update was positive so market cap of about 6.0 million looks much too low.

Tiger, I am sure Daviddosh could add some firepower. However, he and I gave up after ten years of lobbying, sometimes friendly, sometimes not. You have to shift some vested interests. A Chairman who has been there 28 years; CEO joined MV 27 years ago; commercial director 18 years. FD has only just started.....15 years ago. But they have not been idle. The empire is now worth £5m !!!

YES BOUGHT today at 118 ( the rump of the sale this morning) MM are not being fair however at 105/120 which means 15% is lost on day one. The amount of shares at .05% surprised me as there are not that many holders. If I buy anymore tomorrow I will need advice as we go over 3%. Whilst some are ISA protected others are in family names I think the issue is that we are linked. I assume Mr Bragg was not offered these off market. We have over 10% and I do think we could work together. Tiger

AGM today...did anyone attend ? Chairman, Mervyn Keene, will make the following statement at today's AGM: "For the 24 week period to 16 June 2017 revenue was approximately 5.5% ahead of the comparative period last year. In our sports, leisure and toys businesses revenue was ahead of the prior year, driven by strong growth from both licensed and own brands. Cars 3, Paw Patrol, Trolls and Batman licences performed strongly. Our own brands including Hedstrom, Stunted, Airwave and Electrick were also ahead of the prior period. Although revenue from our bicycles and mobility businesses was behind the prior period, following the restructuring exercise undertaken in the fourth quarter of last year, we are pleased to report that we have transformed the loss making bicycle business into profit. We anticipate that we will be able to maintain profitability for the full year. The launch of a new range of lightweight junior bicycles under the Squish brand has been a particular success and we are pleased with the momentum that this is gathering. Our new entry level British Eagle range will be delivered to customers from early July as we fulfil the order book for these cycles. Based on performance so far, we are cautiously optimistic for the second half of the year. Although profit margins remain under pressure due to a weak sterling/dollar exchange rate and continuing economic uncertainty, we have taken a number of measures to mitigate this impact. In addition, our forward order book is currently over 35% ahead of this time last year.

The mix of companies always has one sector in trouble but the others do ok. I think its good to have a mix and the d2c business looks to be doing ok. Huge amounts spent developing this area.....and its starting paying off. the shares are still trading below NAV which values the business at nothing and it should make circa 1.5 million last year and 2 million plus in current year tiger
