Popit precisely the share price should have risen it didn’t and lots of off book trades some for large amounts so it’s an educated guess there is no evidence the negotiations are private so I imagine for such a holding they set a price no other notifications were published. I don’t pretend to understand all the derivative instruments the market uses to manipulate share prices but it’s my best guess what’s your thoughts on it!

You said the shares fell because BOA negotiated a price off book or between parties

What evidence have you for this? There is no mention anywhere on the internet that this was the reason for the large fall in the share price

BOA also seem to have taken a position of almost 7% in CBG

3.14% in shares and 3.7% in other financial instruments

I would have thought that a large stake building like this would have been more likely to increase the share price

So do you have any evidence that this large stake building was the reason for the large fall in the share price?

For old shareholders this stock must really suck ,I'm sure in other countries they would of asked for some resignations due to the share price fall.
As new shareholders we are using this situation and bad news for a chance in a life time for a 75% discount on the share price and what could be the best paying dividend stock ever.
Excluding last few weeks this is the cheapest it been for 25 years.
The lloy statement would suggest the share price drop is overblown.

This stock has been 1600 and excluding virus and Brexit has probably averaged around the 1200to 1500 over the last 5 years plus.
The company is sound with a 20% dividend even though it’s on hold currently, where else will you have the possibility of up to a 400% return including dividends in a possible time frame of 3 years…….
We do live in a world of total fear in uk of losing what ever we have, which has a compounding effect on the share price.
If this stock was in the states this stock would have dropped by 10% then rebounded straight back up while being valued at around 2 billion plus.
if a worst case share right issue happened in the states it would have dented the share price for a short time.
In the uk fear has driven the share price down so much that a worst case rights issue suddenly looks really dangerous to many which drives the share price down even more to ridiculous value.
On the positives side great buying opportunities.

It is not nonsense to say that a liability of £1 billion for CBG could require a rights issue or perhaps receivership and liquidation

What you have written however is real nonsense

"If it does turn out to be a storm in a teacup it will be confirmed in an RNS one morning and the price will gap up to the £9 a share NAV"


How can CBG confirm their liability in a RNS ?

CBG have no clue what their liability will be

The FCA will tell CBG what their liability is some time later this year

CBG do not get to decide anything

"flyfisher 12 Feb '24 - 17:01 - 626 of 727

Any opinions on dividend sustainability."

With hindsight a very prescient question which I didn't pay enough attention too. Having said that, given the reduction in share price that had already happened by the beginning of this week, I probably would still have decided to hold.

Now it is simply a case of waiting to see whether the outcome is better or worse than has already been priced into the share price.

If CBG ends up paying between £150m and £200m or less then I believe this will quickly rerate.

From the This is money article referred to earlier

"RBC Capital Markets suggests anywhere between £6billion and £16billion, having recently upgraded its estimates following a recent FCA webinar on historical motor commission arrangements.

The investment bank thinks Lloyds Banking Group, Black Horse's parent company and the UK's biggest motor finance lender, could pay out around £2billion alone in compensation.

Large sums: RBC Capital Markets suggests motor finance lenders could end up paying Britons anywhere between £6billion and £16billion

It also anticipates Santander UK will have to cough up £850million, while Barclays and Close Brothers will pay up to £120million and £150million, respectively."

If these figures turn out to be broadly correct then after Novatis a further hit of £150m would clearly be very unwelcome but from the final results for the year ended July 23 there was a £204.1M charge for impairment losses on financial assets and for the previous year ended July 22 there was a charge of £103.3m. After the charge last year there was still a pre tax profit of £112m and an after tax profit of £81m and whilst a further charge of that magnitude this year would be very unwelcome, it would only appear to delay the return to a more normal profit by a further year (if it is provided for the in the upcoming results, if they don't think they are liable they might not want to make a provision and it may overhang the share price for longer).

It still seems that all the bad new and some is already in the share price unless the situation is far worse than RBC are forecasting.

Financial regulation and industry very different in ROI than UK. The acquisition will not be affected.

Market due to open down 0.5% today. Big test to see if the cbg share price holds up. Had a first buy at 532 a few days ago. Trading seems hopeful since then.

Cbg should have cut the dividend last year following the huge provision as paying uncovered dividends can lead to problems.

Yet another huge provision and Cbg could get into serious trouble maintaining regulatory ratios, etc. One to avoid until Cbg release an update. No wonder the share price is in free fall.

Share price definitely weak because of FCA motor finance review. Also note the FD sold some today....clearly this is going to hit share prices. One of the best-managed players in the sector is S&U chaired by the inestimable Anthony Coombs, a doyen of the industry renowned for running a tight ship. The fact that at 2pm today he sold 6,500 at £22.50 suggests to me he sees a trading opportunity to buy back in lower. CBG could well get caught up in this & slither further given the prefect storm of Novitas, Winterflood's problems in small cap space & now this.
