"at last"? Where have you been? Look at the posts from 2847 onwards on the subject. The bike market has been booming for years - Tandem just haven't been able to benefit from it.

Looks like at last there is a bit of a boom in cycling. Ties in with optimistic statements in the last Tandem report.

Cycling Over the spring and summer, Halfords becomes much more of a Cycling business and the category was the standout performer in the first half, with LFL revenues up 14.2%. Successive wins for British competitors at major sporting events maintained the UK's significant interest in Cycling; Halfords took advantage of both this and what was undoubtedly better weather. There were significant enhancements to the range in the period. This included a new Pendleton, launched alongside the great success of the Somersby. A high-specification carbon-fibre Boardman road bike, priced in the period under £1,000, sold well. Apollo, the UK's largest bike brand, added a road racer at just £200 and a popular new junior road racer within the Carrera Zelos range was priced at under £250. Promotional events and spot buys augmented the strong performance. Up-weighted clearance activity was matched with spot buys under the Carrera and Raleigh brands and offers included 10% off all road bikes during the Tour de France and Olympic legacy events. Additional investments in stock were notable in Cycling to ensure that continually strong demand was met with good availability in store and online. A new TV-advertising campaign that reflected a very different approach in our Cycling marketing strategy matched our desire to extend our community responsibilities. Halfords now partners with Re-Cycle, a charity which sends reconditioned bikes to Africa, where bikes are in significant demand. A summer bike trade-in event offered customers a 10% discount on a new bike when they brought in their old bike, collecting c.5,000 used bikes for shipment to our charity's partners in Africa in the process. In our desire to support the resurging interest in Cycling amongst children, our store colleagues held kids' workshops on Cycle Repair, attended by around 10,000 children during the summer holidays. Cycle Repair was a key focus, with sales up 27.7% in the first half. We helped profile our Cycle-Repair service by proudly partnering with Sky for their series of weekend Sky Rides around the country, providing assistance to thousands of participants. Our team of mechanics also attended other major Cycling events such as the Deloitte Ride Across Britain and many other local events.

Just heard Falcon M.D. has been sacked . Must have been on cards for a while .Poor performance. Heard that the FD has been asked to go at end 2013 too.Also some more staff changes to come. Also both Falcon & MV rumoured to have lost significant Multiple retail business for 2014. Seems the business model is not what it used to be.Markets changing but TND not adapting quickly enough.This is 2nd hand info. but quite reliable.

I do not think we should be arguing amongst ourselves and naturally I would not be surprised if some shareholders saw the share price double in quick time as they did two years ago then no doubt after ten years invested and nothing happening they decide selling some is sensible portfolio and risk management. The debate for me is firstly as highlighted....What is the fair reward for the directors in a company where the performance over ten years has been far below the average on the Aim market and where the market cap is significantly below the average and in fact in the lowest 10%. I would argue that remuneration could be half the level it is to be more in line with what is desirable and fair which in turn would make the company far more profitable and the share price likely twice the level it is now. The directors could then take their reward via share purchases and options ! Whilst commenting on the share price...I do not think it was a good use of shareholder funds to buy the shares of just one shareholder at the price of £1.40 when the share price had never traded at that level at any point in the last decade but had clearly moved up on the share purchases of that same individual. If the company had provided a tender offer at that level then I suspect every holder except the directors would have accepted £1.40 as the price for their exit after ten years hard labour which in itself suggests it was too high !

David I agree that the remuneration of the directors is out of all proportion to their performance and the size of the company. This situation has persisted the whole time I have been a shareholder (since 2001).

Andrew, I really do not want to get into a debate about the semantics of a ramp. The price was, in my opinion, being driven artificially high, so yes, I sold some.

I can provide Director's Pay David. This is gross including pension contributions and bonuses ( sic): 2012......................£538,000 2011......................£345,000 2010 ( to Jan 2011).......£540,000 2009 (1/10)...............£568,000 2008 (01/09)..............£565,000 2007 (1/08)...............£588,000 2006 (1/07)...............£341,000 2005 ( 1/06)..............£385,000 2004 ( 01/05).............£406,000 2003 ( 01/04).............£407,000 That is a total of £4.68million pounds. The market cap of Tandem today at 75p is £3.4m. Shareholders return over ten years ? A few pence per share in divis. Board's reward: £4.68m

In ten years the share price has gone nowhere except when gg got involved and yet the directors are taking nearly 20% of the company valuation every year on average in pension, salary and bonuses. How many shareholders are keen to see change so that shareholders get something in the next decade ? Graham1TY has the figures and can probably share them here but it is ugly reading.

TND at 75p bid. Lowest level for six months when so many other things have doubled. Back to levels similar to early 2010 before the greengiant ramp. Leaving aside option exercises there have been seven Directors buys totalling 54,000 shares, or 1% of the Company. I like that, Director's slowly increasing their interests............but all seven deals done in the 90s.

Looking at the numbers. t/o per week first half was 432k. total 11.251 million This has jumped to 759k a week in weeks 26 to 37 to get to turnover quoted. If they maintained that t/o they would match or beat last years t/o. Of course they will not as we have the xmas close down and that's worth 1.5 million in t/o. Does this look right? A

The high end bike market has recently taken off so I think once retailers have cleared stock they will be re-ordering in large quantities for Christmas so there are reasons to be optimistic xmas does not really happen in the bike market any more - so do not expect much

My numbers were based on 10% ahead of last year comparatives which gives turnover of 16.5m in H2. The high end bike market has recently taken off so I think once retailers have cleared stock they will be re-ordering in large quantities for Christmas so there are reasons to be optimistic.

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.
