Yes, I agree wholeheartedly with your comments here. I am particularly delighted in the direction in which the Board is going and it appears that they are following a good strategy. This route had always been my preference and I feel it offers best value for the shareholders. I doubt that the business will be pulling up trees in the next 12 months however it also seems inevitable that we are going to benefit from a recovering business rather than an embattled and dysfunctional failing one The disposal of the metering business is likely to happen relatively soon and the comment that there are a number of interested parties is good to hear. If I recall correctly, the metering business has around 330,000 meters in circulation and even this as a customer base has a value. I think the Kennedys are possibly on the outside here and an absolutely clean cut, such as a sale to BG, would be preferable in my view. The removal of the FD is something I too would have expected to have been commented upon. I just hope that there is not a chunky payment involved following his dismissal. The matter is of course likely to be the in the hands of lawyers and this may be the reason for the lack of any update.
Director buy time?
Now that they are out of the close period, it would be nice to see the BoD show faith and dip into their pockets.
Good enough and plenty of signs of improvement to come - especially now that the BoD can focus on growth. A tad surprising that there was no reference to the departure of the FD, albeit since the period end. More to come on that one. The metering disposal could happen any time. Interesting to see what it's worth and who wants it. The Kennedys are one obvious potential buyer.
does anyone still make a living as a typist? ..wasn't that 20th C?
Thankfully, I do not make my living from being a typist, as I'd surely starve.
