rotrader: Maxed the ISA out today.Can't see that the debt is a major problem.VCP are dominating the market in flooring ready for the recovery- might take some time but they are setting their stall ,DYOR
km18: ...from last year... Victoria plc is a designer, manufacturer and distributor of flooring products. The Company develops, manufactures and distributes carpets, ceramic and porcelain tiles, underlay, luxury vinyl tile (LVT), artificial grass and flooring accessories. Current market cap is around £1.28b. Today it published preliminary results for the year ended 3rd April 2021. And they were pretty good. Record revenues of £662.3m up 6.6% on FY20, despite very material (as much as 80%) revenue declines in Q1 due to Covid-19 lockdowns. Record underlying EBITDA of £127.4 million (FY2020 £118.1m) and margin of 19.2% (FY2020: 19.0%). EPS increased to 30.21p from 28.42p.... ...from WealthOracleAM
sharemonkeymagic: This could send the price up: The Board of Victoria PLC (the "Company") (LSE: VCP) the international designers, manufacturers and distributors of innovative flooring, notes the press speculation regarding possible discussions concerning a subsidiary of Belgian company, Balta Group NV ("Balta"). Whilst speculative details in the article are inaccurate, the Board can confirm that it is in discussions to potentially acquire a profitable, growing part of Balta's group that it believes possesses good synergy opportunities with Victoria's existing business. For the avoidance of doubt, the Board confirms that Victoria is not contemplating an acquisition of Balta as a whole. There is, of course, no guarantee that any transaction will take place, but, if it did, terms would be in line with Victoria's usual acquisition criteria including being materially earnings accretive, and it could be funded entirely from the Group's existing resources and in line with the Board's financial policy. A further announcement will be made in due course as appropriate.
drk1: Nice little addition to the VCP family today, not long before we see £12+ here. "We continue to have substantial amounts of capital to deploy and are in active discussions with additional high-quality opportunities to grow our business. Therefore, shareholders can expect further earning accretive acquisitions."
longterm56: Victoria PLC (LSE: VCP) the international designers, manufacturers and distributors of innovative flooring, is pleased to announce the following trading statement ahead of its AGM to be held later today. · Trading continues to be solid, with consumers continuing to invest in their homes and commercial demand for flooring returning. Year-to-date, revenues are c.+70% ahead of the same period last year (c.+50% on a like-for-like basis excluding the impact of acquisitions), and more than 50% ahead of the same period in 2019. This is despite the extended and on-going lockdowns in Australia, that have materially affected sales in that division, which normally makes up c.15% of Group revenues (although the experience of the last 18 months suggests that the impact of the Australian lockdowns will be sales deferred, rather than sales forgone). · Inflationary pressures on raw materials experienced earlier in the year have abated somewhat, although, at the time, the Group took action promptly to broadly maintain operating margins. · The Group's investment in its UK logistics operation continues to pay dividends, with the superior service Victoria provides to customers driving an increased share-of-wallet. · The acquisitions in Italy, the Netherlands, and the USA, as announced earlier in the year are performing in line with expectations. In particular; o The synergies being realised as the operational integration moves forward in Italy are better than expected by management. It has become clear that, with the completion of some minor upgrades, the clay atomizers acquired as part of Santa Maria will be capable of servicing more production than anticipated - reducing the cost of clay, the single-most important raw material in a ceramic tile. o Work is already underway to distribute certain products manufactured in the Group's European factories into the USA via the Cali on-line business. o Consumer demand for Cali's unique LVT (luxury vinyl tile) products continues to exceed management expectations. Consequently, LVT sales now amount to more than 10% of Group revenues. o The continued growth of our artificial grass business (annual revenues now exceed €80 million), with the addition of the most premium brands in this product category (Royal Grass and Edel Grass), has enabled some margin-enhancing vertical integration in fibre extrusion. There is further strong growth potential with this product category as consumer demand continues to grow. · The Group continues to be involved in active negotiations on several high quality, value-creating acquisition opportunities, and has the capital in place to execute on them. The Group will provide a full update on trading for the 26 weeks ended 2 October 2021 when it announces its Interim Results in November. Victoria's Annual General Meeting at 1.00pm today, is being held at the office of Brown Rudnick LLP, 8 Clifford Street, London, W1S 2LQ.
rotrader: Post 1644 - 1646.Heard about this a while ago, my understanding was VCP head office was to remain in Kidderminster and the distribution hub to go to Worcester. But info I received may not be totally correct - we will see.Won't be a lot left in Kidderminster to do with Carpets before long. Brintons have virtually moved everything out.
castleford tiger: Hi My calculation for my own shares was an average cost of 53.5p during the boardroom battle the shares went to high 300`s with a bid of over 450p being refused. Wilding and Anton took control and we were offering him half the business if we got 300p back in 2 years. We got our 292p a share in 2014. That from memory was paid out of borrowed money! The shares raced on and were split by 5 so at today's £11 that is £55 a share old money but it was £60 at the time of the results. What ever we or you paid for the shares you got back in the 292p so the rest was a free ride. looking at your figures 1490 cost you £2 each so a total of £3000 ( the shares then fell remember after the NAVAN LOOM DISASTER) Stoddard and lots of companies were going bust. You then got £4350 special dividend ( i am ignoring the dividends received between buying and 2014)....there were 8 years of good dividends You were left with 7450 shares after the split valued at £90k at the time of the last results. (£12 a share) so a return of............ £94350 for your investment of £3k.......about 30x Of course after you bought there were good dividends but Alan Bullock and co saw VCP price fall as low as 48p .........meaning buying then would return 4x your amount or 120x the stake plus a few dividends. Its been an incredible ride. tiger
bouleversee: Are you sure about that, CT? Doesn't seem to tally with my figures. I have held since January 06. I reckon the 1490 IO bought then at a t.c. of almost £3k, now 7450 shares after split, are worth £80,460 at today's closing selling price. The holding was worth £3069 when I had to transfer out of the ISA on 25.2.13 when they went onto the AIM register. I also had the special dividend, of course. No idea what I did with that but I didn't add any VCP shares at that time. I actually gifted all those 7450 shares to my children and grandchildren in Oct. 2018 and bought more in my ISA since there was talk of takeover already and AIM shares were again allowed in ISAs but that is irrelevant to the calculations. Where am I going wrong? Perhaps you invested your div. in VCP shares and that made the difference. They have still done pretty well since GW took over, of course.
arthur_lame_stocks: CT Just to put it into context before Wilder took over this had retained earnings of over £36m and could and did pay a dividend. Now it has a deficit of £40m and can't and can't afford to pay a dividend. That gives you some idea of the value destruction that has occurred here. Just because the yanks love it and want to bid it up to a ridiculously overvalued price is no reason to think it's a good investment. IMO if you've 40 bagged you should sell and move on, if no one takes it over it'll go bust in time.
castleford tiger: I do like this part of todays results DIVIS It is our view that, in a desperate search for yield, in recent years some investors are failing to see the wood for the trees. Investors should be trying to maximise their total returns (share appreciation plus dividends), rather than focussing excessively on dividend return alone. Since October 2012, when the current board was appointed, every GBP1,000 invested in Victoria(5) has become GBP66,060.54, a compounded annual gain of 61.7% per annum. Had a shareholder instead sold shares each year to produce a 'dividend yield' of 4%(6) (a yield comfortably in excess of the average FTSE250 yield over the same period), then as at today, that shareholder would have received a total income of GBP6,125.13 and still have shares worth GBP49,634.17, compared with the FTSE250 investor, who would have received an income of GBP362.68 and have shares worth GBP1,910.23. (This is even before taking into account the more advantageous taxation of capital gains on share sales rather than taxation of dividends, which has been discussed in a previous Annual Report). Furthermore, following that policy, that same shareholder would today be receiving an annual 'income' greater than their original total investment. It remains the Board's view (as it has been for the last eight years) that it can continue to deploy capital to optimise the creation of wealth for shareholders and therefore it has again resolved not to pay a final dividend for FY2021.
