It gives management scope to carry out the debt reduction the company needs.”Luminar’s sales were falling by 17 per cent when it last reported in September.The company has been hit by youth unemployment and increased competition from late opening bars. The new facility comprises two term loans of £44m and £40m repayable over three years and a revolving credit facility of £15m. Finance director Philip Bowcock said: “We are pleased to have the continued support of our banks.”The shares ended flat yesterday at 14.75p.

He had worked at the bank since 1983, moving from New York to London in 1992.Martin Taylor is chairman of Syngenta and was chief executive of Barclays from 1994 to 1998. The other three members come to the task from outside the industry, however. Sir John Vickers is an Oxford economics professor, leaving the university for two years in 1998 to serve on the monetary policy committee and then the Office of Fair Trading.Clare Spottiswoode is known as a warrior for consumer rights, having been director general of Ofgas and acted for policyholders in negotiations with Aviva.Martin Wolf is chief economics commentator of the FT and has worked at the World Bank.

The danger is that as cost savings become more difficult to extract, the business will have a weaker consumer proposition and will continue to see sales slide; ultimately this could damage profitability. We are not yet at that point, but on current form this looks to be the inevitable direction that the firm is heading in.KEITH BOWMAN | HARGREAVES LANSDOWNThe group’s reputation for consistent if somewhat unexciting growth has again been enhanced. An early adoption of the now increasingly fashionable trend to concentrate on profit margins at the expense of sales has served the company well. Furthermore, despite understandably cautious comments with regards to the outlook, management is still attempting to push the boundaries. In all, WH Smith continues to be rewarded with a positive (‘buy’) market consensus.NICK BUBB | ARDENThe figures for the first-half numbers are in line, as always, and there is not too much in the statement to get excited about. But the 18 per cent rise in the interim dividend is a useful reminder that WH Smith continues to grind out massive surplus cash flow (for dividend growth and earnings per share enhancing share buybacks) and a five per cent yield is very attractive. There is overseas growth across the board with store openings in hospitals and stations as well as in India. center_img whatsapp Tags: NULL Show Comments ▼ Thursday 14 April 2011 8:16 pm Sharelast_img read more
