I am not sure what the law is on encouraging attendees ? Can the company call a few shareholders saying: "just trying to plan how many sandwiches to order, are you coming ?" !!

We can ask next week about the Mintel survey on cycling, press release May2012. 8% growth in overall market; forecast of another 23% in next five years; average retail price risen 40% even if volumes down; general upbeat forecasts. Can TND add anything to the analysis ? Good to see share buybacks at these levels

And, showing how much management time it takes............there are seven pages on the pension position. Ben Sayers, still valued in the accounts at £576,000 ( the retained, unimpaired goodwill which the Board would have to write off if they thouught it worth less) does not get a mention in the narrative despite last year's plug "had a particularly good year with revenue growth of 20%" and golf clubs get a picture on the front cover. However, how they are doing now..........not worth a mention. I do hate companies that issue reports without even the basic imformation: "this is what we do". Say ( heaven forbid) that a meeting with a new investor was set up, or a journalist took an interest, and they were sent the accounts before the meeting, they would be entitled still to ask "what exactly do you do as your main, annual circular to shareholders does not actually tell me"

David, just looking at relevant notes to accounts. The Casket pension scheme, with assets of c£2m paid out......£66,000. How many people is that ? Can only be a handful. As an aside, that payout is "covered" by the assets for c30 years using back-of-the-envelope numbers. Shows the sway actuaries have that they can still, this year, say there was a £175,000 shortfall on the fund !! Put another way, the Actuaries say that you need a pot of £2m to get a £66,000 pension.This scheme was altered in 1995, 17 years ago, so one could speculate as to the age profile of the beneficiaries. The Tandem scheme paid out £535,000 in benefits. Again, that is not a vast number of beneficiaries. And the Actuaries say that, suddenly, there is a £2.1m shortfall.......

What we need is a clear strategy and delivery on it ! We also need clear communication to investors. There are no broker notes, research or forecasts anywhere. The company does not do presentations and expects us to be thankful they hold an Agm. There is a history of under performance, high rewards and bonuses to directors, no revenue growth,lumpy profits and an activist investor who left the rest of us behind. Maybe the serious shareholders that remain should should take note of who has gained from this company as it aint long term investors ? Directors should be paid less than the average on AIM but have very decent bonuses paid in a mix of cash and shares but wholly based on shareholder returns

I would like an incentive scheme that gets the price back above 140p. The Board should be embarrassed by the 140p buy-in. The way to prove us wrong ( and AB) is to get the value of the company above that level and show that the buy in was justified. I wish..... Currently Steve has about 150,000 options at an average price of about75p. At this level then, maybe worth £10,000. Incentive ???? I would prefer he had a million options at 140p. Then he would sweat to make it work

What we need is a JSOP with a trigger price of say 150/160 and then let them have a stake. Maybe a cheap JSOP is on the cards!! Like EKT

Compare and contrast: Zytronic, a company I am looking closely at. Tandem revenue £29m, Zyt £20m, about the same size. Tandem 5 yr growth in rvenue -18%; Zyt +80%; Tandem growth in eps -19%, Zyt +140%; Tandem profit £820,000 Zyt £3.6m; Tandem market cap £3.5m, Zyt £45m Tandem CEO £235,000 Zyt CEO.....£144,000 Tandem total board cost £540,000 Zyt total board cost £439,000 One profitable, fast growing, exciting, CEO gets no more than £144,000. Tandem........are you reading this non-execs ? But then we have not seen the Annual Report yet: maybe the total pay will have halved ???? I think not. Anyone reading this, think these comments are not helpful: look in the mirror

Well done Jim. A commitment to the shares at these levels. Be nice if Steve did the same ? If nothing else, Steve will get a 3.15p divi, or £3150. Does not need that, on his salary. Why not actually take a meaningful stake in the company ?

Graham1TY: Agree with your there. It's a typical problem faced by companies with management which don't understand the market and don't have the charisma or will to communicate. They just end up doing nothing, because the can't raise enough debt and they are reluctant to issue shares. They don't buy back shares because that just makes them get smaller and they don't like paying dividends because they assume investors want capital gains. Management, listen, there is a way out of this conundrum and it involves communication plus something on dividend

Not a share traded......... Was there a single article anywhere ? IC ? GCI ? Any bike mag ? Anywhere ? Nothing on the back of Tandem's Olympics range ? on anyone famous riding a Tandem bike ? In the absence of any specific good news, there is no desire to keep in the public eye, yet alone promote. If there is an acquisition in the pipeline ( please no......) how on earth will it be paid for ? With their size, the maximum they could borrow would be not much more than £3-5m, and if it was done for equity, with the current interest in the shares, even £2.5m of placing shares would dilute 50%. So, where are the institutuions lined up ? Where are the potential holders, in the wings, saying " we cannot buy in size now, but come to us with the right acquisition and we will be there close to the current price" At current levels, the maximum acquisition they can be looking at is therefore only a couple of million: is that going to transform the prospects ? What can you get for a couple of million ? If the shareprice reflected a multiple of 10, or even 8, there would be some value to the paper. At these levels, Tandem paper has no worth as consideration, and any issue will be massively dilutive. So, my point ? If there is going to be an acquisition, there has to be some self-promotion, to the city, to institutions, to us suffering shareholders, so that when the right deal does come along, the company is not stuck, unable to finance it.
