225p is hardly ambitious and I guess explains why the share price has refused to clear the 200p line.

Well, the only good thing you can say is that it has held up much better than Gocompare since the demerger.

Really like how they shoved a pile of debt over to GOCO to improve their capital position. 'growth at upper end of guidance'

RNS Number: 6764O esure Group plc 09 November 2016 Continued strong growth; on track for the full year Trading update for the nine months to 30 September 2016 Highlights Gross written premiums up 15.9% to GBP499.0m (YTD Q3 2015: GBP430.5m) o Motor gross written premiums up 18.3% to GBP430.6m (YTD Q3 2015: GBP364.1m) o Home gross written premiums up 3.0% to GBP68.4m (YTD Q3 2015: GBP66.4m) In-force policies up 5.7% to 2.105m (Q3 2015: 1.991m) o Motor in-force policies up 7.6% to 1.530m (Q3 2015: 1.422m) o Home in-force policies up 1.1% to 0.575m (Q3 2015: 0.569m) Additional Services Revenues(1) up 3.5% to GBP80.6m (YTD Q3 2015: GBP77.9m) -- The Group's financial position is strong and the capital base has been further strengthened as part of the Gocompare.com demerger Stuart Vann, Chief Executive Officer of esure Group plc, commented: "Our business continues its strong growth trajectory and overall premiums are up 16% and policies up 6% year-on-year, which is very pleasing. As a result of our underwriting expertise, focus on customer service, and efficient expense base, we are well placed to take advantage of the current motor market conditions to grow our market share over the coming period and deliver value to shareholders. Rates in motor continue to be favourable and we are making good progress on our strategic initiatives to grow our business. In particular our underwriting footprint expansion, which supports our growth ambitions, and enhanced customer contribution modelling in motor are delivering promising results. In home, the market remains competitive. This, coupled with the weather costs incurred earlier in the year, mean we continue to manage the portfolio accordingly, not pushing growth when we don't believe it is profitable to do so. "We successfully demerged Gocompare.com from esure Group on 3 November having guided the business to improved results during our ownership. "We are on track to deliver the outlook for the insurance business provided at the interim results earlier in the year, with premium growth expected to be at the upper end of our guidance of 13-18% driven by our motor book. Assuming favourable market conditions continue, we would expect to continue to see attractive rates of growth in the coming periods."

For those who may be wondering how to apportion their original cost of ESUR shares between their post-demerger holdings in ESUR & GOCO shares, the following is taken from the circular re the demerger which was published on 11/10... "Shareholders who are resident in the UK for UK tax purposes should not be treated, by virtue of the receipt of Gocompare.com Shares pursuant to the Demerger, as making a disposal or part disposal of their esure Shares for the purposes of the taxation of chargeable gains. The Gocompare.com Shares distributed to Shareholders pursuant to the Demerger should be treated as the same asset, and as having been acquired at the same time, as the esure Shares already held by Shareholders. The aggregate base cost of the esure Shares and Gocompare.com Shares immediately after the Demerger should be the same as the base cost of the esure Shares immediately before the Demerger. Such base cost should be apportioned between the esure Shares and the Gocompare.com Shares by reference to their respective market values on the first day on which the market values or prices are quoted or published for such shares." My only query is: what were the "respective market values on the first day on which the market values or prices are quoted or published for such shares". Was this the opening prices yesterday?

Esure prospers from Gocompare demerger, says Barclays - HTTP://citywire.co.uk/money/the-expert-view-tate-and-lyle-rsa-insurance-and-howden-joinery/a965486?ref=citywire-money-picture-galleries-list#i=5 Esure (ESUR) stands to profit from its split from Gocompare, according to Barclays. The demerger is now complete and Gocompare shares have been admitted to the London Stock Exchange. Barclays analyst Alan Devlin retained his ‘overweight’ recommendation on Esure and decreased the target price from 340p to 245p. ‘Esure shareholders will receive one new share in Gocompare for each share they own in Esure,’ he said. ‘Effectively, if we assume that Esure trades at the same multiple post demerger we expect the new Esure to trade at circa 198p per share, valuing the stock at 11x 2017 earnings. ‘We believe the deal structure was effectively a nil cost way of improving Esure’s capital position, although it has left Gocompare encumbered by high leverage. We believe the demerger is positive for Esure as it strengthens its capital position, allowing it to take advantage of the UK motor cycle.’ Esure shares gained 6.3p or 3.3% to close at 196p.

Esure closed @265p yesterday. Todays current Esure price of 197p plus 73p for GOCO provides existing shareholders with a marginal increase in the combined value of these demerged shares

Esure circular for General Meeting re proposed Gocompare.com demerger - HTTP://www.esuregroup.com/~/media/Files/E/Esure-V2/Strategic%20review%20of%20Gocompare/esure%20Group%20plc%20-%20Class%201%20Circular%20-%2011%20October%202016.pdf 16) What will be the impact of the Demerger on esure’s dividends? (pg19) Following the Demerger, the Board does not intend to amend the current esure dividend policy, which targets a base dividend of 50 per cent. of underlying profit after tax in addition to a further special dividend, if the esure Group has sufficient capital and distributable reserves, after allowing for an appropriate buffer and future growth. However, the Gocompare.com Group currently contributes to the underlying profit after tax of the esure Group and following the Demerger, the esure Group will no longer receive this contribution. The fees associated with the Demerger will not impact the esure Group’s 2016 final dividend and will be adjusted for in the esure Group’s 2016 underlying profit after tax.

Gocompare.com prospectus - HTTP://www.gocomparegroup.com/~/media/Files/G/GoCompare/admission-materials/gocompare-com-prospectus-11october2016.pdf C.7 DIVIDEND POLICY The Directors intend to adopt a dividend policy which will reflect the Group’s aim of generating value for Shareholders while ensuring that it retains sufficient capital to fund planned growth in its core business as well as both strategic and financial investments. Assuming that sufficient distributable reserves are available at the time and subject to any regulatory capital requirements, the Directors initially intend to target a dividend of between 20 and 40 per cent. of the Group’s annual reported profits after tax adjusted for any exceptional items. Subject to capital not being required to fund organic growth, strategic investments and acquisitions in the medium term, the Directors intend to return any excess capital to Shareholders over time in the form of special dividends. The Directors are not intending to pay a final dividend for the financial year ending 31 December 2016 given the short period between Admission and the start of the financial year. Going forward, it is envisaged that interim dividends will be paid in October of the relevant financial year and final dividends in May of the following financial year in approximately even proportions. The Group may revise its dividend policy from time to time.
