I will certainly be at the Agm and know two others who are aiming to go this year. I will ask if the directors can provide a full presentation this year rather than just the official business of the Agm and maybe an opportunity to meet some of the senior staff too. This excellent Spring weather should help cycle sales so better late than never !

Noone is really interested......but here goes. Tandem Annual Report Not much more than the statement. However: 1) of the 6 KPIs, they failed four....and the interest cover target is not that relevant when they have little debt. So, failed four out of five 2)buybacks of shares: at 111p and 140p in 2011, but that is history and we know why they were forced to overpay for those. But the last year, 9 purchases, average cost 86p. So, no impact on the shareprice whatsoever. Of the eps increase of 9%, half is down to the reduced share capital base. 3) Director's costs up by 56% or £193,000 !!!!! Now, I hear you say, there was one more Board member, so strip that out and still up a staggering 27% !!! And there should be no increase in total staff costs ( though the Director prob got a pay rise) but total staff numbers are down 5%, while total staff costs are up by 8%. Average pay ( a simple crude total cost/staff numbers) is up 14%. And there were no bonuses paid. So, just plain 10% average across the board increase to Directors salaries and hikes in pension contributions. In 2007 Directors remuneration (£354,000) was 1% of group revenue. In 2012 Director's remuneration of £538,000 is 1.9% of group revenue. Shrink the business, pay yourself more 4)There will be 95,200 options exercised in the next few days ( they expire 1 May 2013) all at an exercise price of 71.88p. At a bid price of say 88p today, they will make between them a profit of.......£15,346 after holding these since 1 May 2006. Why so little ?? Because the shareprice then was 75p and his risen 17% in 7 years !!!! well done chaps. Mervyn makes £2450 5) the pensions........I do not understand......the accounting, the sense, the anything. Change to the discount rate and up goes the liability by 10%..... 6) Jim can correct me or explain why it is not a typo in Note 19 to the Accounts. The number of shares bought in has changed ( they previously reported buying in 901,500 shares). Even if there is an explanation for that, the table does not add up for the year 2011 ( 5552 minus 742 plus 16 is NOT 4666) Bored

Bicycles and accessories Revenue in our bicycles and accessories businesses for the year ended 31 December 2012 of £16,979,000 compared to £18,235,000 in the 11 month period ended 31 December 2011. There was a further reduction during the year in revenue from national retailer promotional and FOB business. Despite the fall in revenue, the change in sales mix improved margin by 2 per cent. The operating profit before management charges was £797,000 compared to £946,000 in the 11 month period to 31 December 2011. Although there was a strong 'feelgood' factor following the British success at the London 2013 Olympic and Paralympic Games and in the Tour de France, anecdotal evidence suggests that the leisure cycling market actually contracted in 2012. The year was the wettest year on record for England and the second wettest on record for the United Kingdom overall. Following a promising March, the months of April, June and July experienced significantly more rainfall than the monthly average which adversely impacted on bicycle sales in our market. Notwithstanding these issues, revenue from our flagship brands of Claud Butler and Dawes increased. We have continued to provide a quality range of cycle products, offering great value to our customers supported by excellent customer service. We have also taken the step to restructure the bicycle division by separating the independent dealer business from the national retailer business. From 1 January 2013 all national account bicycle business was transferred to our sports, leisure and toys division in Birmingham. It is envisaged that this change will enable a greater focus on independent customers in the bicycle businesses. Bicycles revenue for the 12 weeks to 22 March 2013 was behind the same period last year. Although we reported successful January cycle shows and a significant increase in the order book, once again the poor weather has had a negative impact on consumer footfall.

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.

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.
