It looks however like the second half is going to be good. Last year H2 net profit was 563k. The statement made in the report - The Group sales order book is significantly ahead of the same point last year and we expect the second half of the year to be cash generative.Group performance in July, August and September has been promising, particularly in the sports, leisure and toys businesses, with Group revenue 10% ahead of the corresponding 11 week period to 13 September last year. Although we do not expect to fully recover the revenue position we expect the Group to be profitable for the full year. My guess would be at least 1 million net profit in second half on turnover of 16.5m. Given the confidence in paying a dividend I wouldn't be surprised to see more than 1 million added to cash. EPS of about 10 for the year so a p/e of 9. Then next year if they can get back to normal trading levels in the first half it is not inconceivable that 1.5 to 2.0m net profit is on the cards. That depends on current recent trends continuing. Given a market cap of 4.25m, there is good upside here. That's all my view DYOR.

Shocking. If this BoD ran a business selling water in Death Valley they would probably go bust. Useless.

Shaun....what are mtbs ? Anyway...Time for action I think. Why not start with a full list of questions which I can put to the Board for answering and we then make conclusions ? We are the owners so if there needs to be changes then we are the ones who need to take a responsible line and some action or it aint gonna happen as 40% of the shares here are held by hundreds and even thousands of tiny holders with shares worth just twenty quid ! So start emailing me questions via the mellomeeting.co.uk site if you wish or even put them on here. I am very happy to arrange a meeting with the management as well if it is constructive but as I own over 2% here I am certainly not going to let this carry on the way it has done. Castleford....I too was very unhappy that they would not let us look round the facilities that we had just paid out hard cash for when I asked at the Agm. I am not so sure they fully respect that we are owners and have been sharegholders here for nearly a decade in my case ! Enough is enough.

Are we not all saying the same thing? Whats confusing is the sectors have changed. DEWHURSTS were the biggest butcher in the country. Is less meat eaten now? We had 26 shops selling Fruit and Veg now we have 3. Business changes and Tandem need to and fast. Anyone can import a container of cycles bought at the many trade fairs in the far east. You are either Volume/Specialist/service. We are none of the above. We need a radical overhaul of how the business operates. The smaller players we sell to are going down fast. Tandem needs to decide what it is as simply an importer and distributor with high fixed costs has no chance. The one thing that really worried me at the AGM was they would not let us in the warehouse. Was it empty or full of stock now unsalable. Change or die its that simple. Tiger

I hear what you are saying - every kid used to have a bike and that is far from the case now. However, it doesn't change the fact that, as you point out, there has been a massive growth subsector within cycling for adult road bikes. These are expensive products and a huge opportunity in recent years that Tandem seem to have missed out on. If they knew their sector and understood their market like they should, then this would not have happened. I view that as a very material management failure.

There are cyclists all over the roads down where I am; literally thousands more than there were 10 years ago. mainly males in the over 30 plus bracket riding road bikes not kids and mums and dads on all these new cycle paths - which u cant see from ur car - which has not grown in volume - and by far the biggest sector of the potential market place plus mtbs - which have had sales decrease over the last 20 yrs

well it aint the hey day for sales read the LINK - thats the most accurate sales figs nationally for ALL bike sales hxxp://www.bikebiz.com/news/read/bicycle-association-agm-and-anti-dumping-round-up/014933 Down to business Statistics were among the topics discussed, with bike values proving to be rising, even if volume has remained static in the recent past. Bickerton explained: "We have been keeping tabs on the UK import statistics, which have gone up and down a bit over the last couple of years, but when you take abnormal delivery timing variances out of the calculations, imports seem to have remained at just over three and half million units per year for the last four years... "So whilst we are all concerned with promoting more bike sales, especially through encouraging bike usage, it looks like we have seen growth in market value rather than volume. The good news is that bike sales continue to be pretty buoyant.

I suspect it was the heyday for independent cycling shops, rather than the heyday for cycling. There are cyclists all over the roads down where I am; literally thousands more than there were 10 years ago.

I appreciate that you're 'in the trade', Mr Shaun, but I have to say I have trouble accepting what you say. So the heyday of cycling was 1993-1998 was it? Well I was there and I don't remember it. There is no doubt that the last few years have been a golden period for cycling and if Tandem can't sell into that sort of market, then they can't sell at all.

At what point was cycling more popular then? 15/20 yrs ago - before the multiples jumped on the bandwagon

At what point was cycling more popular then? You may be content with this dismal performance but I certainly am not. Anyway, have wasted enough time on this pathetic company. As I said, useful for offsetting my CGT for this year but nothing else.

Just count my lucky stars I sold out many a moon ago. Looks like same old same old. Run for the benefit of the management and no one else. Difficult to know what one can do about the situation given the very fragmented shareholder base.

Terrible half year, but things much better since is the message. Trouble is the management have lost already credibility that they know how to grow the business. It really is time for a new team.
