|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
I'm not sure how relevant Eddy Merckx Cycles is to TND. I think the cheapest Eddy Merckx bike is about the same as the most expensive Claud Butler. What might help Eddy Merckx is a Belgian or French winner of the Tour this year.
Never mind bikes the future could be mobility scooters. On my way to the off licence this weekend I ran into an elderly neighbour. She said she was taking the dog for a walk to get some exercise. She was riding a mobility scooter the dog was in basket mounted on the front of it.
I have a few of TND I'm nearly back above water hoping the share price continues to rise.|
Eddy Merckx Cycles of Belgium made a loss of 5.7 million Euros in 2016 on top of losses in previous years, too. The loss in 2016 was blamed on a 25 percent fall in road-bike sales, said Bart Van Muylder, chairman of the board of Eddy Merckx Cycles and CEO of Diepensteyn NV.
"As specialist in this category we were hit unexpectedly hard,” Muylder told Bike Europe.
‘We were not able to compensate our decline in turnover in other bike categories as we are hundred percent dedicated to road race."
He added: “Our turnover was stable although we anticipated on a growth in sales. Still we are proud we could double our sales over the past two years and we still believe in the future of Eddy Merckx Cycles.”|
The UK market for cycles also shrank in 2016, according to customs statistics. Figures from HMRC reveal that imports of cycle fell by 11 percent to 3 million units. The UK market has been importing about 3.5 million bikes a year since 2012.
Garidis also said advocacy was needed to shape the policies and regulations that impact on cycling, said Garidis. Outreach projects would aim to get people cycling more often, and promotion would be required to "sell cycling" to those not already pedalling.|
|50p eps would be lovely. I can also see why you say it's possible.|
|hey up some movement.
still silly cheap
|Also bought here today, been on the watch list for some time.|
|I MADE ONE TODAY WITH MY 4000 at 1.18.5 this am
bikes and toys fit well.
Mobility/golf carts etc..........
If they can save a million in one division just think what you could strip out!!
|Even the spread makes it hard to make a profit|
my retirement fund
|Good question Tiger - my overall impression is a rag bag of businesses with little logic between bikes, mobility and toys|
|so will we make 1.5/1.6 with the exc gain.
1 million in savings current year so could be well over 2 million this year.
far too cheap but how do we get value out of it?
|Lol got my entire original investment plus interest from MV Sports back from the FCA because it was sold them via a boiler outfit of brokers called City Equities.|
my retirement fund
|Halfords figs out today - Cycling looks fairly strong compared to the IBD market
|There is a fair few quid there Mr Shaun. 150k a year?
Sad for those out of work.
They do seem to be moving to direct sales more looking at the platform.
I have not done my usual yet due to other pressures.
The pension story needs investigating.
I think once again the accounts talked the business down.
however I reserve judgement till I go through them.
So what did you make of the accounts, if you don't mind me asking?
Calm down and try to be polite.
I have not read the accounts yet I just passed a comment.
I am an accountant by the way so you can relax there.
|So what? Net assets at 30 June 2016 were GBP8,048,000 against GBP7,819,000 at 31 December 2015.
They made £646k profit in 2015 H2 and booked a £200k pension gain outside the P&L.
There is no mystery here, you just need to learn to read accounts.|
|Net assets at 30 June 2016 were GBP8,048,000 against GBP6,843,000 at 30 June 2015.|
|Net assets have not gone up significantly - only £229k, of which £139k relates to an increase in the translation reserve.|
|Net assets ? funded?|
|Tiger, net assets are up because of the £2m acquisition in 2H last year surely ? Not because of any retained profit. Net assets since the year end are virtually unchanged....|
|Still cannot buy meaningful amounts this morning.
Ask how a significant increase in net assets are shrunk to a small profit?
Sales up a large chunk in second half.
Clever but as shareholders we either get a chunky yield or growth in the share price.
Any sellers out there at mid price let me know.
Full review later
|You can only hedge so far and it looks like sterling weakness is longterm so will have to live with it. Very bad luck. The increased dividend shows much confidence going forward so I expect a good second half. Its becoming more of a toy and leisure business than bikes.|
