A white candle with a smoking wick symbolising the fall in the Dusk share price today

It’s been a relatively positive start to this Wednesday’s trading session on the ASX boards. At the time of writing, the All Ordinaries Index (ASX: XAO) is up by a tentative 0.05% at just over 7,700 points. But one ASX retail share that seems to be bucking the broader market is Dusk Group Ltd (ASX: DSK).

Dusk shares aren’t having a great time of it today. While the All Ords is in positive territory, the Dusk share price has plunged by 2.9% at the time of writing to $2.01 a share. That’s after closing at $2.07 yesterday.

It was even worse for Dusk this morning too. Just after market open, the candle and fragrance company fell as low as $1.98 a share. That was a fall of around 4% at the time.

So what’s going on with Dusk today that has elicited this market-bucking fall?

King cashes out

Well, it could have something to do with the ASX announcement Dusk released to the markets before the opening bell this morning.

This ASX release announced the resignation of Dusk’s long-term CEO Peter King. King has been CEO of Dusk since 2014 but will step down from the role in August this year. A successor has not yet been chosen. But Dusk has declared that “a search will now commence for a new CEO”.

Here’s some of what the now-outgoing CEO had to say about his departure:

Having just completed my ninth Christmas as CEO of dusk, I believe now is the right time for someone else to take the Company forward. I would like to acknowledge the hard work of our executive team and thank the Board for their support and guidance.

Dusk’s culture is deeply rooted in our commitment to delight our customers with affordable everyday luxury. I am focused on closing out FY23 strongly and will work closely with the Board to identify an outstanding future leader for the Company.

Chair John Joyce added the following:

The Board would like to thank Peter for the invaluable contribution he has made since 2014. The Company has been transformed under his leadership. Peter has built an outstanding executive team, dramatically grown our revenues and earnings, driven the omni–channel transformation strategy, and led the IPO in 2020. He will leave the business in excellent shape.

Peter is a ‘team and Company first’ leader. Consistent with this approach, Peter will continue to lead dusk through to mid–2023. Peter plans to do a fulsome handover to a new CEO when identified…

Dusk is scheduled to provide its earnings report for the first half of FY2023 next month on 24 February. The company has stated that investors will be updated on the search for a new Dusk CEO when these earnings are released.

Dusk share price snapshot

As the company alluded to in its announcement today, Dusk is an ASX retail share that has been listed since it first IPOed in November 2020. The company reached a share price high of over $4 back in mid-2021. But Dusk has fallen significantly since then.

Today, Dusk is going for $2 a share, and remains up by around 18% since its IPO:

At the current Dusk share price, this ASX retail share has a market capitalisation of $124.5 million, with a trailing dividend yield of 10%.

(画像=dメニューマネー編集部) 2023年の確定申告(2022年度分)は2月16日から3月15日まで受付が行われます。 一部の所得の申告に限っては、スマートフォン(マイナンバーカード対応機種のみ)とマイナンバーカードだけで行えますが、2022年12月から国税の納付手段にもう一つ選択肢が増え、より効率的に支払えるようようになりました。 2022年度の確定申告で、納付が初めて可能となった決済はどれでしょうか? ① クレジットカード決済 ② スマホアプリ決済 ③ キャリア決済 ■新しい決済は手数料がかからない 国税はこれまで、金融機関や税務署窓口、振替以外に、インターネットバンクやコンビニでも支払えました。さらに、2017年にクレジットカード決済が、2022年にはスマホアプリ決済が加わりました。正解は②です。 対象となるスマホアプリ決済は、d払い、au PAY、PayPay、LINE Pay、メルペイ、Amazon Payの6種。最大のメリットは、手数料負担がない点です。アプリによってはポイントが付く場合もありますが、ポイントの有無や付与率、条件などはそれぞれ異なっています。 注意が必要なのは、納税額の総額が30万円以下に限られているため、それ以上の納付には使えないことです。また、自分で設定している利用上限金額があれば、納付額は上限金額以下となってしまいます。 ■クレジットカード決済のデメリットは手数料 ちなみに、クレジットカード決済は2017年1月から始まっていますが、納付額に応じた手数料が生じるため、ポイントの付与があっても、メリットが感じられませんでした。 ③のキャリア決済は、まだ始まっていません。キャリア決済とは、NTTドコモ・au・ソフトバンクなどが、携帯電話料金とwebサイトで買った商品やサービス等の代金を合わせて支払いを行う決済サービスです。 文/編集・dメニューマネー編集部 Read more »
