What are those figures relating to ? Profit, cashflow and returns to shareholders are the key measures. On turnover the bike division is the only one that can be truly judged as the rest will be lumpy due to licences and fashion !

Interesting about Halfords. Some posters were a bit cynical when Tandem mentioned the wet weather having an impact on sales. Halfords mentioned it was weather related. This confirms to me that it is a valid reason and so seems to me that Tandem management are doing a good job in difficult times. Share price doing rather well also compared with the slaughter on rest of the AIM market over the last few weeks & vs Halfords. He said the slip had been entirely from its cycling ranges, which had been hit by the wet weather. "We feel optimistic that it is just a blip and not a structural problem and we are moving forward." Matthew McEachran, an analyst at Singer, said: "It just looks terribly weak. The shares have got clobbered, but I think its probably justified." Mr Wild said that the Olympics, where the British cycling team are expected to win a clutch of medals, would prove that the interest in the sport had never been stronger, and the recent fall in sales was entirely weather-related.

from Halfords Within Leisure, Cycling like-for-like revenues increased 9.7%, reflecting a strong performance in both Premium Bikes and Cycle Accessories Retail sales in FY13 have been very disappointing so far. In particular we have not seen the usual seasonal demand for Cycling and Outdoor Leisure products. with the $ gaining strength it looks like the perfect storm to reduce profit even further

believe they were made aware that their holding was over 3% after the last buybacks. they are not new buyers and if anything will end up being sellers whern the acquisition goes through

Neverforget....the company has only bought back 60k shares in the last month and did no buybacks for the year prior so your comment does not add up. An existing holder would only be triggered at 3% to announce if they already held well before this month as the jump to 3.3% is too great and suggests a plus 10% buyback without the shareholder actually buying in the market ! Have you had contact with the shareholder to confirm your statement or we must still assume they have bought stock to get to 3.3% even if they were at 2.9% already?

Interesting new holder of 3.3% http://www.harvardplc.com/brands_product_development Anyone aware of them, beyond their Goodmans brand which even I've heard of, and can suggest what their interest here might be?

How many shares do the posters here actually have ? If we hold say 10% of the company then that should be enough to seek a meeting with the management to either present their strategy or provide a presentation in London to which I can invite hundreds of investors and see if we can get some interest in the company. They will not be prepared to do anything if all they see are two shareholders at the AGM. I have 2.3% of the company so very much interested in seeing some positive movement and communication by the management team. The company is listed and the directors did buybacks at £1.40 so even in current market conditions they should not be hiding away when the share price is almost half that level. No Forecasts, no broker notes, no PR and no presentations in the City will mean no interest from anyone and the share price slumbers.

never, I believe it was the international and particularly North American business that Accell wanted and paid up for. re TND, yes the UK accounts look very similar to Raleigh: not the growth one would want nor riding the crest of this cycling mini-boom. I am as disappointed as anyone by the apparent lack of progress and profitability. What I am as worried by though is how TND perceive the value of their business relative to others. Notwithstanding the poor bottom line, are they happy to be valued at less than £4m ? Even with no greater profits, what they have, eps and balance sheet, should be promoted and lauded........and valued at more than 80p per share

there is one irrefutable fact and that is that raleigh have been sold for over £60m. 7 years ago these 2 companies were neck and neck in that time raleigh have realised massive shareholder interest and tandem nothing. This from the mintel report "The wheels are in motion for a boom time for the cycling industry as sales of bikes are set to gain momentum over the next five years. The market is forecast to increase an impressive 23 percent reaching £800 million by 2016." I doubt tandem will see that growth

Whoppy not sure what came with the original Pot Black acquisition, but it aint snooker tables to train the next generation of young Chinese maestros. Is mainly kids, fold up snooker and pool tables, nothing like full size tables.....suspect that the name ( for us old Reardon watching folk) is worth more to us than to the company !!

never, not sure about the facts on raleigh. Raleigh reported a drop in sales of 8% in 2011 made up of a 23% drop in bike numbers ( 19% fall in revenue) and only a 17% increase in parts/accessories partly balanced the bike falls. Raleigh was bought for the international business......the UK reported only £820,000 in profits, hardly the driver for a £62m valuation. Mintel must also be taken with a note of caution. Was the bulk of the rport written prior to April ? I know it was published later, but the weather in the peak buying season might have completely dampened the increases they forecast re overall performance, I do totally agree. Is very very difficult in this retail/economic environment to make money and they are failing to add value. Whether that is selling businesses ( Ben Sayers is still in the books at £600,000 and Pot Black at a short million); paying far higher divis; share buybacks; or the right acquisition I do not know. I hate the idea of an acquisition, unless absolutely right. They will pay too much, spend months integrating it, bear exceptional costs ( leases/redundancies) for a couple of years............leaving aside how they pay for it. Back to your valuation point: Raleigh sold for millions as have other bike related businesses. Can the TND board do more in these markets ?: tough. Should this business be valued at £3m ? Absolutely not. It is cash generative and even as a business unable to grow visibly in this marketplace, it is worth far more than £3m I would love to know what the valuation would be on this if someone like Finden Crofts of Raleigh, or the founders of Wiggle, or Brompton showed an interest
