"When's the Big Sofa (BST) placing?" said one of our contributors after results last week. Well "there isn't one" said the company. Over at Value the Markets they claimed that the company had guided that it would do calendar 2016 sales of £1.5-£2 million when it listed (sales came in at £757,000). Given that miss VTM said "take profits" and Leon Boros of the discredited abusers and rampers nest that is ShareSoc tweeted this aggressively. But there was no official guidance from the company- that was not true. The company listed on 19 December 2016 - is anyone really claiming it guided to £1.5-£2 million 6 days before Christmas and 12 days before the year end when it would have know that its sales just ahead of the Christmas break were going to be c £757,000 ( the eventual FY number) . What total bollocks.
