Tapi has invested £24m to get close to 70 stores which would value UCGs 57 stores at least at £20m or over 20p per share. And Tapi is based on a franchise type model which could easily acquire UCG and rebrand it Tapihttps://www.thefurnishingreport.com/index.php/news/retail-distribution/2845-investment-in-tapi-carpets-floors-reaches-nearly-24-millionhttps://www.retail-week.com/sectors/home-and-diy/in-pictures-son-of-carpetright-founder-unveils-new-flooring-retailer/5075362.articleTapi has been modelled on a partner-owned structure. "You need to get people to buy in. I don't want employees, I want invested partners," said Harris. "When the business does well, they do well, we're all in it together. There's power and pride in partnership."

Even at 22p as long as trading continues to plan they are underated, either way there is potential.

Interesting debate.I initially bought in March 2015 at sub 10p and am pleased to have added more this week off the back of special divi and positive Broker forecasts.

I rathet think WPP is a totally different business and does not have even the faintest similarity to this.On a more positive point. Cantor Fitzgerald have a buy rating reaffirmed again for United Carpets.Moreover they have a 19.5 pence target on the stock. Nearly 80% upside from the present price.

Eyre and Grayson taking it private or a private equity backed MBO would pay even bigger dividend cheques due to the savings alone on stripping out the AIM listing costs. At such a discounted micro Market Cap and no need to raise equity capital for growth as its cash generating then it's ripe for being bought out in such a low interest rate environmenthttps://www.bdo.co.uk/getmedia/7a5055c2-c009-4259-af62-6076f34cd49a/DirectAim-Issue-2-2015.pdf.aspxBEING QUOTED ON AIM...COMES AT A COST – BUT IS IT WORTH IT?According to the results of our recent Pulse survey, which YouGov carried out on behalf of BDO and the Quoted Companies Alliance, the average cost of being quoted on AIM is around £220,000 per annum, whilst the average cost of maintaininga listing on the Main Market is more than 60% higher at around £360,000 per annum.This total is made up of the costs of nancial PR, investor relations, nomads, brokers, auditors, website maintenance, regulatory news service, registrars, annual general meeting, annual report production and the annual listing fees.However, this captures only the external costs; the internal costs of time spent on investor relations and regulatory compliance will almost double this cost. Therefore, as a rule of thumb, the real annual cost for an AIM company is on average £500,000 and £750,000 for a Main Market listing.

MRF the same sort of people who purchased WPP all those year's ago. A run down trolley buisness and now is the worlds biggest advertising agency. UCG is cheap as chips, and may be purchased as it's listed, on the stock market.

MRF do you know something we don't... if the market keeps the shares low they will attract a predator, that's how it is.. especially as you point out its generating lots of lolly, going to the main shareholders. The shares should be almost double where they are now, and the company worth 20 odd million..its cheap, a real UCG bargain in itself, Do you think the owners would turn away a good offer of 30 p ? Would you?

why don't management offer 20p, take it off market, sale and leaseback of freehold, and happy days? bit of debt/equity to finance the rest and off you go...DYOR?
