I think GG saw a good company with cr*p management and tried to change it around but then was bought off because the BoD didn't want their party spoilt. I think he tried to spin it by saying the management are really passionate about the business to make shareholders feel he had had an affect. Unfortunately passion doesn't equal profit.

wont happen this could have been so different but people here bullshi@@ed about the level of their holdings when gg was trying to instigate change and now they are left with a company that is run for management not knowing where to grow and a failed strategy. (Neverforget) neverforget...Maybe you could explain that one in more detail ! At what point did gg need a company vote on anything ? Who exactly gave a false level of holding ? I am fairly certain that gg knew exactly what he was doing and made sure he had an exit plan A and then plan B if that was not able to work. The rest of us were in his hands to a certain extent and carried along for the cycle ride ! I am a long term investor and do not have a private equity background. There are a few questions to be asked though but not sure what you are suggesting with yours ?

Management told GG if I remember correctly that he spoiled their little party because he kept sending the share price up eveytime he bought. Shows you they prefer to have a low share price Kinda makes you think. A non committed management whose only passion is to stick their noses in the trough while shareholders who own the company are treated with contempt. They have lost us so much money with all their buy backs which shows up there limited ambition in trying to create shareholder value. What's the point of them even being listed on the market and how do they get away with it. I think they need investigating.

There we go, 80p, halved in a year. Annoyingly Andrew was right. And they paid him 140p for 821,000 shares, so at 80p, they have overpaid by £492,000. Add in another 80,000 shares at 111p, another c £25,000. Ouch. Steve, encouraged to get more involved, told by us ( well actually, me) that he needed to be tied in by an equity exposure, that could make or break him, has lost nearly half his 140p. Hey ho. Wait for the interims. I really should get into greenmail.

So do we put today's share price level down to the failed BoD or do they have an excuse that the slow down in the econony is to blame. Considering Halfords bike sales are up, as cash strapped motorists are getting on their bikes, I tend to believe we still have continuing problems with the management here. Why are they not able to move the business forward and create shareholder value. They are either incompetent or don't give a damn. It's time they got on their bike.

the drop in £ to $ is going to crucify tnd's margins. those expecting 20p eps this year are going to be disappointed more like low teens and if the $ continues to weaken may even see this falling into a loss position after all sales are not increasing are they? then again the company need not warn because it of course has no forecasts out nice position for management to be in

Very good article in the Times on Friday. Almost half a page, inc history on CB and Dawes. No idea how they placed that, but good coverage

Thank goodness I sold out when gg did. This company just cannot get it right. GG Was always telling the board o the need for delivering top line growth and the need to act swiftly to focus on developing one part o the business and today's trading statement backs this up.

I guess with the forecast recession/full blown depression in western economies, they are expecting bikes to become rather popular. Seriously tho, dunno ?

CT...If you have a serious holding then you really should get up to speed. The agm was over a month ago in Birmingham and there were four non board shareholders there. If you mail me via TMF I can put you on our list of holders that keep in touch and there will probably be another company presentation in September as held last year. Why do you feel you need to be a non exec ?

CT, the AGM has been and gone. Think you missed it. Very positive it was too and good to get over an hour of feedback from the non-execs. TND has been a waiting game for all of us and one day we will get the share price to a level that reflectes the underlying value of the company. What is yr holding ?

Hi CT Hope you don't mind me asking but what are your attributes re the job of non-exec at Tandem please? Please make your pitch now ;-) Also, equally if you don't mind, what sort of holdong in TND do you have? I do understand that this may be an entirely private matter and you may not wish to disclose it-which is perfectly understandable.

Get yourself along to the AGM and vote against them. I for one was happy with the share buy back. The price in the market is false the shares are worth 8/10 times earnings. So 170/220p. Getting the market to see that is more difficult. I just keep buying what i can knowing that this will come good. Anyone fancy putting me up for a non-exc? Tiger

Exactly, shows you how serious the board are on creating shareholder value. All very dubious and the only explanation is that we have a company that is less than transparent with a propensity to act in a questionable manner.

Was that not to help a certain majority shareholder out of the picture so as to take the pressure off of them ? Seems now he has cashed in and been paid off, they are free to put their feet up. Why should they be worrying about what to do next ?

They bought back over 800,000 shares at £1.40 not long ago. Then another 80,000 at £1.11 Now look at the price. Less than £1 what a waste of company money, best part of some £400,000 lost and no sign of the share price recovering. What are they going to do next?

They could start by paying a third of earnings in a divi. That would be about 7p a share. that would get the job moving. After a good trading on bikes from halfords today i still think these are far too cheap tiger

Anyone know what the BOD are doing to create shareholder value? All I see is a dwindling share price Where's the value creation. Are they unable to do anything..other than keep buying back shares in the hope of improving the eps. How backward is that.

The board has changed significantly over the last year including the addition of two new non execs and a new CEO in place who is driving the new strategy of delivering on the licences and improving the brands they already own. I cannot disagree that AB did well to exit at a very substantial profit for the year (and probably much less if averaged out) that he held his shares but the company is still in a good position and I think the Board as a whole know exactly how shareholders feel about the past and that there are more of us beyond AB who are capable of changing things again if the wider shareholders support that view. This year will be very interesting to see how the new Board perform and relate/communicate with their shareholders. Will they now go forwards or backwards ?

OK thanks guys, Have gone through the recent history here. Clearly seems to be a board full of self servers helping themselves to as much salary / benefits as they can and it seems they may have even gone so far as to remove burgess from the register to preserve said status quo at the expense of the other shareholders. Good for the board, good for the burgess, probably not very good for me at all. Call me a sceptic, but the original value of the investment of mine back in 2000 has been pilfered and used by the company in order to bring itself to the position it enjoys today, this company has form and I can see no evidence of this likely to change any time soon.

I think it is also fairly safe to assume that the dividend will be progressive as promised at the AGM having restarted at a low base. If earnings are around 20p then there is no reason for a mature and serious dividend paying company not to be able to pay a third back to shareholders so aiming for say 7p within two years is not unreasonable from the current 3p. That will be a very satisfactory yield and should see the share price at £1.50 plus... especially if the business is growing and new licences plus Olympic effect cycle sales go well. That said if opportunities arise that deliver enhanced eps you cannot rule out investment of the cash but a nice position to be in compared with a few years ago.

Enviro, this has been one of the problems: last year there was a broker's forecast but the Company put out a statement saying it was ahead of expectations and the forecast became redundant within weeks. Is no forecast, but TND has been consistently profitable over the last few years. Afterthe buyback this year, proforma eps would have been 23-24p. Even though there are no forecasts, judging by the last few years, would be disappointed if cannot manage over 20p again
