Hardly insider info, everyone's talking about it at Victoria carpets, Abingdon and Westex (and probably G Tuft) I found out from P Hartley MD Victoria Carpets

If you are right then you are broadcasting insider information...

Alemein...what are you talking about ? I don't understand...has something happened with GTuft now? There is no announcement...? Are you saying something has happened with GTuft? If so...apologies. Not what I was told.

Perhaps PI's have read the RNS about reorganisation within the group, then realised it is not within the group (G Tuft) Then sold out because they do not trust any other information given out. G Tuft are to become a commercial partner and have purchased Tufting machinery from Victoria Carpets - makes you wonder why the group manufacturers couldn't produce it all. Makes no sense to outsource it when Victoria PLC are such a large group and synergies being there favourite word. I think Phllippe Hamers as made a massive mistake here. GW needs to look into this before the rot sets in.

The group are doing well at the moment but could be a big mistake with Victoria Carpets moving manufacturing. We will see.

It sometimes pays to sit on your hands and do nothing. I have held for many years and it is nearly a l6 bagger for me, more if you consider the big div. they paid when Wklding took ovr more than covered my purchase costs. Makes up for the many disasters I have had.

For a reason, just take a look at 1boston's post 836. Just rather disappointed that I did not buy back in to VCP as soon as I read it. GLAH.

Probably the plan, but if not it will cost Victoria Carpets more to have their carpet manufactured by G Tuft. Come to that Abingdon Carpets will still need to make a profit also. Could be the end of Victoria Carpets before long.

R, As long as "manufacturing operations" move to the two other production facilities and not somewhere else (which - I agree - would be misleading) then how is there duplicity? What does it matter that some machinery is sold to GTuft in the process? As CT suggests there MIGHT be wheels within wheels - and GTuft is acquired by VCP but at this stage plausibility from my perspective is that they are moving operations and selling some kit in the process...guess we will have to wait and see...one thing though: consultation is 30 days for the number of job losses (circa 60) that I heard about...the announcement went out on 26th June...now we are 28th July. According to the logic here of underhand behaviour we will know soon enough on GTuft. W

I believe the problem is that this comment - "manufacturing operations in Kidderminster to the Group's two other UK carpet production facilities," was written on documents to employees (consultation period) and in an RNS to the stock exchange. It is clearly not the case - G Tuft are not part of the group.

A...you said the company was behaving in an underhanded manner because they were waiting until an opportune moment to announce a takeover (while within a redundancy scenario). Broadly, your 1+1 equalled more than 2. The purpose of my posts was to correct this assumption which Rotrader has now confirmed.

Is it that if there is much needed capacity then why sell an asset that can provide that capacity? Surely, this is the companies business? Maybe they intend to buy new machinery? Maybe they can optimise better with what they are doing? Where is the lie ? And if they are no longer (as you confirm) waiting until the end of the consultation period on redundancy to announce another takeover - where is the underhanded activity? Is the company now not allowed to sell equipment it no longer wants?

Yes Rotrader...this is what I heard. So, during this process of rationalisation some machinery is sold to GTuft... Genuinely: Can someone explain in simple terms why this is underhand, untruthful etc? What am I missing?

wingspan - Alemein It was my intention to keep out of your discussion because you both have some valid points. But it has become known to me today, some information that seems to contradict some of the statements made. The RNS concerning manufacturing and logistics states that - "The reorganisation of the manufacturing capability, which involves the transfer of manufacturing operations in Kidderminster to the Group's two other UK carpet production facilities, will: · Rationalise the Group's manufacturing operations to drive further incremental margin uplift. · Optimise asset utilisation and positively impact manufacturing efficiency to provide significant - and much needed - additional capacity without material capex." I have been informed today G Tuft (not part of the group)will be taking three tufting machines and the beaming facility. The rest of the manufacturing machinery will be going to Abingdon Carpets Wales. Someone is not telling the truth. IMHO off course.

Sorry A...was trying to soften it... I KNOW that GTuft is a non starter.

Re organic growth, just seen a couple of analyst reports out this morning on VCP: Like For Like revenue up 4.6% and LFL margins up 10.6%. Strong and impressive progress in my view.

wingspan "Our dependency on any one market continues to reduce with more than 30% of the group's earnings now coming from outside the UK. This trend is expected to increase further in 2018." You have gone from saying that my comments about G Tuft are incorrect to "Let's wait and see on GTuft but I am fairly sure that is a non starter". But like you say lets wait and see. You also did comment "Are you interested in undermining all those uk jobs with your posts?" I can categorically state that is not the case. Decent results, but as always its knowing when to get out. Wish you all the best of luck.

Last year's full year results included: "This growth was primarily a result of the contribution from acquisitions, both in terms of the acquisitions in the year of Quest Carpets and Interfloor Group, and the full-year beneficial impact of Abingdon Flooring and Whitestone Weavers group, which were acquired during the previous financial year. In addition, the underlying business has continued to perform strongly, delivering average organic revenue growth across the Group of over 3.0%, driven by increased sales volumes." So VCP have previously given details of organic growth.

Got to love GW's closing points: -- Our dependency on any one market continues to reduce with more than 30% of the group's earnings now coming from outside the UK. This trend is expected to increase further in 2018. -- We have a strong sales culture; irrespective of title, everyone is a sales person. -- Our reorganisation lowers costs while increasing cost variability, thereby giving us greater resilience in variable economic conditions. -- We have done a large amount of prospecting work - primarily in Europe - and are confident of securing some high-quality, earnings-accretive acquisitions.
