I think the share price curve is steepening downward at DC. Reasons in my view are; imminent recession in the UK; sterling near historic lows - all imported product more expensive, squeezing profits for DC; ex-chairman and founder has sold a quarter of his holding recently (a bad sign); big pension deficit; as far as I can see, practically no cash - the business seems to be operating on cashflow which relies on suppliers waiting a long time to be paid; increasing online competition; a massive and costly bricks&mortar estate; a huge workforce creating high operational costs; very few customers in the shops whenever I've visited; warning from the management of 'more pain' to come due to the change in smartphone purchasing dynamics. From what I can see, there are practically no positives for DC; an outdated business model with huge legacy costs.

This range suggests an increase in pre-tax profit of c.+17% year-on-year. The Group continued to improve its all-important customer satisfaction and price competitiveness rating across all key markets.

This acquisition enables it to significantly improve its Services business, where Dixons Carphone provides independent advice and allowing it to become a trusted partner in customers' homes for responsive, accessible, expert and affordable technology support. In view of the Group's encouraging LFL revenue growth..."
