Director dealings: Carpetright CEO ups stake in beleaguered outfit

09 Oct 18

LONDON (ShareCast) - (Sharecast News) - Carpetright chief executive Wilf Walsh purchased 222,000 ordinary shares in the AIM-listed floorings expert on Tuesday.
Walsh, who took over the role of CEO back in 2014, acquired the shares at an average price of 18.04p per share, for a total value of £40,053.91.

The beleaguered flooring retailer Carpetright warned investors back in June that it had swung to a full-year loss as it took a hit from restructuring costs and bad publicity.

In the year to 28 April, the company swung to a pre-tax statutory loss of £70.5m from a profit of £900,000 in 2017 as group revenue slipped 3% to £443.8m and net debt rose to £53m from £9.8m. The company said there were £61.8m of exceptional items versus £13.5m last year.

Like-for-like sales fell 3.6% during the year in "tough" trading conditions.

On an underlying basis, the company made a pre-tax loss of £8.7m versus a profit of £14.4m, broadly in line with the £7m to £9m loss the company said it expected to register in April

As of 1620 BST, Carpetright shares had slipped 3.46% to 18.15p.
