I agree that a loyalty card is an old concept.
An app where you can mine useful data and target promotions is the modern route.
To expensive for WRKS to build but specialist companies are already offering the service to smaller retail chains.

so what's the difference between this one and Card Factory? Why is Card Factory outperforming WRKS so much? And what about Moonpig?

sooty, I have lost faith in the business model. WRKS failed to make the most of the trading conditions in December 2022 when other high street retailers did well. When a retailer makes such small profits it does not take much of a change in turnover to boost profits by a multiple. Equally a small drop in turnover can result in losses.
WRKS have the head wind of a near 10% rise in NLW from April. The more I think about it the educational world is moving away from WRKS. So much of the educational stuff I used to buy for the kids from WRKS is now done online. When buying the educational stuff we used to pick up other stuff for birthdays etc. I only go in now to get a feel for the shop as an investment. Its neat tidy with a wide range of product. I struggle to see any tweaks that would significantly improve the offer.
The Works, Ryman and WH Smith. There is probably only space for one of them.
The appointment of the Kelso directors is a surprise. Kelso have only been around for a couple of years but have ruffled a few feathers beyond their size. Kelso mkt cap is less than WRKS
For me WRKS is an even more interesting watch but I'm not investing.

From Stockopedia, which fills in the details:
"Works co uk (LON:WRKS) - up 9% to 24.25p (£15m) - appoints 2 new NEDs.
Unusually these are non-independent, being the CEO & CFO of active,
but tiny investment company Kelso group (LON:KLSO) (mkt cap £11m),
which owns 5.1% of WRKS (paid 33p).

Speculation of some kind of corporate deal maybe? KLSO is pushing WRKS to do buybacks. WRKS looks a very marginal business to me, with little (if any) equity value, but might benefit from higher consumer spending as 2024 progresses? Although April 2024 sees big wage cost hike."

I cant believe that WRKS are doing that badly, that they are valued so lowly. They have over 500 shops and although Xmas trading was down, I am surprised at such a drop in the share price. I wonder what the fund that bought in recently must think?

One more instance where a better than expected report sees the share price tumble. The two best bargains on the market, Works and Card.

as feared. wrks is good times operation.

they should partially reinvent them self to offer a ..non discretionally needed line ..... to draw customers into the shop. then they will buy present stuff items on the offer - which can be bought every where around.

otherwise excellent management and report. i wish this management would not ride a donkey but a horse.

harsh but that is my opinion

the best jockey can not win riding the donkey /selling stuff in wrks case/

i will stick as the management is excellent as far as i can tell

Shame the share price is doing so poorly!

s23. As you are aware stock levels increase pre Christmas and cash is at its highest level post January sales. It is therefore best to compare cash year on year.
The most recent cash figure is £10.2m vs £16.3 a year earlier. This drop of £6.1m was due to "higher than normal creditor balances" in FY22. It was well flagged and nothing to worry about.
The net cash forecast for the next 2 years is +£3m taking WRKS to about £13 net cash at the end of FY25 (30/04/2025)
Dividend cover is poor for FY23 so a 2.4p dividend is not cast in stone. If the outlook remains stable I think WRKS will maintain 2.4p, as cover improves for FY24.
The WRKS share price is very low but its profit margins are also very tight. A small boost to revenue adds a big boost to profits but the reverse is also true.

Pay rises often start April 1st along with pension and benefit rises. The energy cap is also forecast to fall by £500. This may lead to a better than expected summer for retailers.

WRKS will need to fund the higher living wage which went up nearly 10% last month. Also Amazon are opening a massive distribution centre near to WRKS head office and warehouse. Amazon will be recruiting hard for all positions in the new DC which will add wage pressures locally to an already tight labour market.

No doubt like most people reading this I monitor both Card and Wrks share price closely.

Until recently they were always very similar taking turns to edge in front of each other.

That was until Wrks issued a badly written RNS on 8th Aug.

1. They didn’t declare the previously mentioned £16 m “available cash”.
2. They increased and extended the bank facility to £30.0m and extends the expiration date to the end of November 2025.

This was interpreted as a profit warning and on that very same day the share price dropped 16p (34%) to 30p were it has languished since.

Truth is that it was just a badly written RNS and they either didn’t feel the need to mention the available cash or just plain forgot and also should have stated that the bank facility was undrawn and just good management being prudent.

This has all been clarified today.
