topvest: I get the feeling that the commitment is agreed, but not necessarily all finalised in terms of paperwork. That may have triggered a bit of caution on disclosing actual rates etc. No doubt its good news though, so it 1. increases the share price and 2. opens up the prospect of another acquisition. Suspect they were keen to get it announced as soon as possible.
rotrader: No point in giving to much info, that was the problem last time, from Michael Scott (finance director ). It just confused the issue.Looks to me that the earnings and acquisitions should continue to take the share price upward.I would still like to see more of the directors follow Mr Anton, and show some confidence with an investment - if they are allowed .Brockway Carpets and Adams Carpets could consolidate part of the UK manufacturing for further acquisitions . They supply John Lewis and many other UK retailers.
rotrader: Carpetright results have helped for a bit more confidence in the share price.Anymore updates should help.
1boston: Positive share price trajectory over the last few weeks. I wonder whether this is being driven by the short sellers covering in earnest (hxxps://, which makes me wonder if they are under pressure? Maybe their loans of shares are coming due? However based on the FCA filings they still need to buy back around 4 million shares which is a lot. Would suggest the price is going to keep going up to where is was before the shorts got into the stock.
rotrader: Don't really understand the share price with all this buying going on.Perhaps waiting for the next trading update, which historically should be good, then I think we will be heading back to the price before the finance director got a bit above himself ?
nivison: Spruce at 13.56% and Invesco now up to 22.13%. Both American funds adding on this weakness in the share price. Total percentage of the company now in American hands is therefore 35.69%.
horndean eagle: Must be some doubt about whether they get the debt away. Obviously a lot of pushback from bond holders who will suddenly start to ask a few more questions. A failed raise would be pretty disastrous. Equally having to do it at a penal rate will send more nerves a fluttering. Hate to think where share price would be without heavy US buying. Don't think their dealing desk has done them any favours buying so aggressively.
gabrieloak: Inaccurate and outdated article...GW owns 20% and the news of shorters is weeks old. What they weren't banking on is the big holders (~75% of the Co upping their stakes) Smacks of total desperation..."please print something to try and get the share price down further...the stock is starting to go up and we need to buy our stock back!!" ...Well that's just great...these pondlife parasitic funds shorting a solid British manufacturing company while this country is going through a systemic change...what a bunch of Sh*tbags with no regard for the many jobs this company provides in this country...all on a hunch that the shares were "ripe for a cropping having gone up rapidly..."rather like that idiotic shorter 3 years ago...Lucian something or other...lost his shirt (and others theirs) trying to short this company...GO away and earn a proper living...
topvest: Well I've just read the Annual Report and decided to buy a few. The Chairman's approach is so modelled on Warren Buffett and I live near Kidderminster (regularly driving past the fairly tatty head-office) that I just had to buy a few...better late into a great company in the making than not at all I guess! I thought I had really "missed the boat", but on reflection I am not sure that I have. OK, it would have been a dream at a £1 but who knew this was coming other than Wilding. I think the really clever people got in at less than £4 so its pretty much doubled from those days, but has been pausing for breath in the £8-9 range for the last year or so. Looking forward then, this could well become a FTSE-100 company and go to a £5-10 billion market cap if they keep executing their strategy as they have been. I don't generally like growth by acquisition, but they do seem to be buying well and doing deals that are obviously highly earnings enhancing. They seem to compare themselves to trying to do something like Shaw Industries in the U.S. owned by Berkshire Hathaway. That company is about 10 times as big, so there is lots of scope to grow as it seems to be a sector where you can "buy wonderful companies at a fair price" which is quite unusual at this point in the cycle. He even addressed the "missed the boat" question on page 9 of the Annual Report where the answer is that they still only have 2.5% market share in their 3 chosen markets. I must admit to have questioned Wilding in my mind previously, particularly the original audacious deal that gave him a large holding without paying for them in cash...but, I think I may have been wrong....he is either the genuine article or he has been pretending well. He certainly walks and talks Warren Buffett! Some of the antics are very much Buffett style, but the share sales and long term incentive plans less so. Time will tell I suppose, but what a fantastic bit of wealth creation so far particularly for himself and the original shareholders of this small carpet company in Kidderminster. Who would have thought you could successfully be a consolidator in this boring old industry. Its certainly opened my eyes! Original shareholders have nearly 10-bagged, but there is still scope to double or triple from here in share price terms. As an aside...Kidderminster...the former home of carpet with its own carpet museum. Once had lots of companies...only Victoria, Brinton's and Brockway remain of the hundreds that originally existed. Even Tai Ping Carpets closed and headed to London. The odd thing is that I don't think locally people have realised that Victoria is now a proud £1 billion pound company...people are only interested in the jobs locally which have gone so doesn't get the good press that it deserves.
gabrieloak: Reading back over the furnishing report news (not logged on for a few months)...I had missed the news on Headlam seeing UK weakness and European flooring imports being strong... I think the read across from Headlam (along with Carpetright irritating comments on market conditions as a poor retailer) explains the recent weakness in share price...however: (This morning) Geoff Wilding, Executive Chairman, commented: "We are now seeing the clear benefits of our strategy to develop a broadly based, resilient flooring business, where operational and manufacturing synergies lower costs, whilst also providing a robust platform for organic and acquisitive growth. This is in no small part due to the excellence of our wider senior management teams who continue to drive the business and create opportunities to grow market share while maintaining margins. The Board is encouraged by 2018 trading to date. Together with progress on ongoing internal initiatives to deliver synergies and revenue growth, and the very attractive acquisition prospects already identified, the Board is confident it will deliver another year of significant, earnings-accretive growth in the 2018/19 financial year." Board is encouraged by trading so far in 2018! What is not to like...? GO
