its passed on or the purchase price reduced. I am dealing in USD daily and huge amounts. Could fall to 1.40 or lower. tiger

I do not think they hedge as much as they might.....every statement for the last few years has blamed the dollar !

how much though and dont you think that the hedge will run its course. they use a cap and collar hedge so it would have broken through the collar which will still be hurting them profitability wise

neverforget....You are assuming they did not hedge any of their forward committed dollar exposure ? I think the directors are pretty aware of the exchange rates and what they need to do within certain ranges.

this is really going to hurt tandem considering the amount of forex it is involved in free stock charts from uk.advfn.com that coupled with net debt at HY of £1.6m was free hold property really a good idea?

Halfords bike sales were down last quarter..... from what I gather top end bikes are fine. Lower level bikes, trading is still cutthroat. I do not think iot was a bumper year for bike manufacturers. I am suprised they did not make more of the turnaround. At the interims they gave an effective profit warning, saying profits would be down year on year. 2H must have been very good as they are now saying that profits overall were ahead. I know lots of sucking in on teeth about difficult times, but beating last year is better than it might have been. I agree re the property, .....however, if they save £300,000, even allowing for new interest cost of say £50-80,000, they shoudl still be making a couple of hundred thousand on the bottom line......not a bad investment

Halfords latest quarters results are a useful barometer of the biketrade - moniter them. Other than that it is hard out there - cycle to work scheme making a comeback in our area - subject to the usual 10/12% discount to the scheme providers

Buying the freehold is hilarious. If that is the best use this company can put its cash to, then that is very telling. I can't understand why you lot put up with this management.

they appear to have unwound their stock which has released cash so fair play to them. I don't get why they have bought property. it says to me they have no idea how to grow the business. this shown in the best ever year for british cycling what happened to their sales? this is why the company is so cheap.

Valued at under 4 million and making 1..........the shares are undervalued. Co is spinning cash off and i like them buying the freehold. Its a non dep asset that saves us 300k a year. 1.6 million over 10 years means first year 160 k plus interest say 50k net saving of 100k straight to bottom line. With the cash they are throwing off they will soon pay it down. I must try and make the AGM this year because there are lots of trading questions i need to ask. tiger

That 300k net saving on rent will come in handy to pay for any pay rises the directors might fancy awarding themselves as a result of increased profitability from this move. What was quite amazing was the fact they managed to get funding for the purchase at such a low rate. There are many a listed property company that can't access funding costs as low as that.

If they were comparing 12 months with last "year's" 11 then they would be lying. No, they must be comparing equal periods. I would also have expected them to specify which profit they are referring to. I presume it is PBT but they should have been explicit.

Must clarify with Jim what they actually mean by profit up on last year. At the last trading statement was forecast to be down.... Last year was only 11 months because of the change to the year end. So ? beating 13.4p ? Beating £820,000 PBT ? Or is the wording bad and they mean 2H was better than 1H ?

At last year's AGM it was pretty much said that they would find it difficult to make much headway with existing businesses and an acquisition would be needed for any step change forward. ( despite the rather chequered history on acquisitions). Well, that is out the window !!

Hi Graham, The impact on the P&L will be in next year's results. Although not exactly rocket science it will do more for profitability than anything else they have done, a net gain of 300k py is a 40% increase in profitability. Remember, only 1600k is increased debt so it will have self-financed in 6 years. That said the rest of the statement is very uninspiring in such a good year for cycling. At least it seems their premium cycles are starting to make some headway but as always this company seems to just drift overall. I reckon slightly positive on balance but share price will probably drift down slightly.

Typical TND statement......bit of this, bit of that. Bicycles not doing well in record Olympic year......but maybe more profitable.....both divisions behind.....but probably ahead..... I suppose the single statement that "Revenue for the year ended 31 December 2012 was similar to the prior period at approximately £29 million and profit was ahead of the previous period" has to be positive..... Buying the freehold.....why ??? I suppose it helps the p&l longer term and it may be a good offer. BUT, bang goes no net debt ( and not stated what the position will be now); reduced chance of divi increases; unlikely more buy backs; what about the acquisition they have been talking about ?; AND I want a profitable bicycle business, not a property holding company.... Overall, my guess would be opens fractionally down ???

neverforget - I am stating current purchases implies they are very comfortable about cashflow which is a good sign nothing more than that.

Cash and cash equivalents £2,018 Financial liabilities £3,656 net debt 1638g that is more than what they have spent on shares which means they would have been in a net debt position anyway

amt you are joking right? put it this way over the past 2 years tnd have spent £1321948 of our money buying back shares. the average price they have paid for these shares was £1.33. that means those shares are now worth about £847319 that is a loss of nearly £470g. not a good investment is it. as for plenty of cash the company has now gone into a net debt position. they just dont have a clue

share buyback shows they think its undervalued and have plenty of cash to play with.
