OK results, but they seem to have gone backward on disclosure again. No restatement of prior years to give a comparable 12 months, so strategy other than more of the same. Not surprising this languishes on a PE of under 6 and a yield of over 4% despite being at a 42% discount to net assets.

whoppy....You say your holding is very small now so that means you probably took advantage by selling in the spike created by AB. Why not start buying back at these lower prices and build your stake to the levels where it makes a difference to the share price and your portfolio !? With a meaningful stake you can then have a serious voice that management will listen to if aligned with the rest of us! Five investors here already have nearly 15%

davidosh, I'm afraid I have written off my investment here so do not participate in shareholder disquiet as nothing will change. I was hopeful when AB got involved but even he became disillusioned and wanted out. If I remember, the management bemoaned his involvement as the share price went up so much, which messed up further share buy backs. To get rid of him they paid 143p a share with our money. That's 100% premium to today's share price Shows you what they will do to keep it cosy. My holding is very small now. I was just curious what other big holders think as you guy's must really be hurting. Castleford, If you could light a fuse under management. We need something done. Hopefully it won't be a damp sqiub but there doesn't seem to be a lot of spark here.

i think we may make just short of a million this year. I continue to buy when i can and will certainly give any holders 80p for decent blocks if they want out. I will try and make the AGM this year. As a firework importer i could bring some rockets? Tiger

75p to sell. Presumably holders think this is okay? Are you not worried your investment is going down the pan? All very strange. Does the management of TND post on this board? Is this why there are muted responses to the share price performance. Do none of the bigger holders think the value of our market cap is appalling.

The Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) are listed in the annual report but as we know there are no forecasts to set a target as such for investors to monitor expectation and performance in meeting that expectation ! The obvious target is simply to improve earnings over and above the previous year. Most of us who attended an Agm two years ago were concerned that although only one of the five KPIs that were listed had actually been met the company directors still received very significant bonuses ! Then AB joined the shareholder register and challenged the board with a different viewpoint and the weight of a large shareholding....the rest is history ! Hopefully going forwards we now have a happy medium with a board and new directors focussed on delivering to shareholders rather than the directors or just one shareholder reaping the benefit. This could be the defining year for Tandem.

This company is dead as regards attracting new investors. I get the impression shareholders are nothing but an annoyance and hindrance to the management. Consolidation will probably be on the cards again so they can get rid of some more shareholders who have had there investment whittled away by the previous consolidation. That's on top of the appalling share buy back which was designed to create shareholder value. All the nonsense of improving EPS etc by having less shares in issue has just been shown to be folly when it comes to the share price It's normal procedure unfortunately. Just what are management doing as regards creating shareholder value and what are their targets? does anyone know. Is anyone willing to send a rocket up their backside? Can we not just put the business up for sale and return money to shareholders if there is no reason for management to contiue due to the poor performance. At what share price do investors feel action should be taken anything below 50p? Those holding large amounts must be pretty peeved. Would you be happy with another consolidation? and another share buy back? Are you happy with this company?

Sorry David, not been on here for a few days. Well done on C21 !! Agree re divi. Pushing up by 5% gave all the wrong messages. Either there is a divi that is of interest or not. The reaction should be "good increase", not "oh my god, how dull, they must be very cautious". This remains cash generative. Why not distribute ?

Graham1TY....See post 2616 I have not checked the shareholder register recently but over 40% of the shares are still likely to be held by around three thousand shareholders with less than 500 shares. Transfering interest to active participants is a slow process. AB managed to speed up the process temporarily by aggressively buying. I do not have the same mentality but maybe it will happen again. I just hope the business delivers first so that we can all benefit. The dividend could be improved somewhat to encourage those with small holdings to add rather than stick like glue or die of boredom.

Is there a buyer out there ? Over the last couple of weeks, quietly 1200 at 85p, 2000 at 84.58 and now 5882 at 85p ? That should have cleared out all the dribs and drabs at 77p etc

This is so cheap now that it is madness. If we need a SR then so be it but AB set the ball rolling we just need to keep pushing. We can start with a new NED or two and see what happens then. TIGER

I think you will find there are five serious holders with close to 3% or already notifiable. Most of us attend the Agms and engage with management but posting here is not going to convince others either way. Management know what has to be done and this could be a crucial year. I have also been buying FWIW but there is very little stock available..

Thanks for your reply. Do you have a clear vision of where you think they should be taking the business? Also, if Burgess couldn't move them with 22%, why do you think that they will engage constructively with you, at 3%?

2611 was a serious attempt to stir some debate. neverforget is an ex-holder with strong feelings about management, but what about current holders - what are you looking for from this share?

I've been running some numbers on TND and find myself faced with a dilemma. The company is quite clearly underpriced - I'm anticipating (annualised) EPS of about 18p per share for each of the next two years and would consider about 150p as fair value – but what is going to make the price go up materially? The management would seem to epitomise plodding mediocrity. They have taken the business nowhere in the last five years – in fact, it has gone backwards in real terms. They don't seem capable of surprising on the upside but will surely, eventually and inevitably, surprise on the downside. Further, they are clearly intent on hanging on to their lucrative sinecures. Witness their failure to engage constructively with Andrew Burgess, and eventual squandering of shareholders' funds on buying out that troublesome activist shareholder last year. The obvious answer would seem to be to put the business up for sale. Gross margins, before what seem on the face of it to be excessive operating costs, would make it a valuable add on to a company already in the sector with the management talent to make something of the brands. But turkeys don't vote for Christmas ... I'd be interested to understand from long-term holders what makes you stick with it – what do you see as the potential catalysts to take this share back to a sensible valuation?

Encouraging that profitabilty on bikes is ahead and with olympics this year and uk best in world at cycling should be a good year. Pity about the share buy back. Lets hope they are left to manage the company without interference this year.

A confusing statement with no direction. Very ambiguous and as such leaves any potential investor in doubt, hence no reaction to the share price If management could articulate itself in a meaningful way and give a comitted undertaking to improving sales in all of it's product areas rather than whimsically commenting on the state of the economy and the retail environment and how it impacts on the business, then we might actually have a growing business. Unfortunately this is still clearly beyond management or it would have happened by now. Obviously they are acutely aware that any undertaking to deliver will only show up their inadequacies. So it's same old same old, sit back and cop a massive salary without the need to perform. Until the managements MO changes the share price will continue to decline and at best go nowhere. I know they are trying but it's just not good enough. Might aswell not be listed.
