jtcod: Apart from the fact that trading for the second half to the 8th May 2006 was still 'encouraging' with only 6 weeks left to the financial year end, the next financial year will benefit from significant cost savings, plus Andromeda with it's potential £40m+ turnover (imo) and Mosaic which will require pretty much zero capex going forward as it will be run using existing rights as a cash cow. I believe 6/2007 EPS could be nearer 20p per share, leaving the management the comfortable option of paying say an 8p dividend (10 %) of current price. If they do this, I can still see the share price through 150p certainly by this time next year (regardless of current market concerns). The management are doing all the right things imo. As ever all IMHO and DYOR JT

jtcod: Guys Something that's been on my mind since the weekend is: Why would the management not wish to make an RNS statement regarding the Andromeda purchase? Regardless of whether they are required to or not, the purchase could potentially have a significant affect on company growth and the share price.

she-ra: Rights issue to fund aquisition of Silver Scrren? Thats the last thing shareholders need. Maybe someone will pump HEC to get the share price up so that it can offer shares. Ive seen it done before with other companies before they make an aquisition-suddenly they are getting stalked share price increases then they make an aquisition.

she-ra: siwel100 - World Cup 2006. 140-150p, because some Swedish speculator who has bought into some turkeys, such as Gaskells, has decided to have a bet on HEC?. Look at Tandem, he has done nothing for the share price. The fact remains HEC is loss making and operating in a rapidly changing market. On the one hand there are new entrants regulary entering the DVD etail market, on the other movie downloads and the constant growth in on demand satellite and cable customer numbers are hitting and going to hit even more companies like HEC. Then you have the fact that newspapers do free DVDs every weekend. People only want to watch so many movies a week. Once this company starts to become in debt, and one has to wonder whether this will happen with store refurbishments and continuing losses, it will become a very unattractive share. Your theory about no one selling is deficient. If someone was to start dumping the shares they would crash even more. There is also the fact that they will be holding with a big loss. The fact is many companies go under with very few shares changings hands in the run upto collapse. Mayflower Corporation was just one example. Infact the directors were buying shares prior to administration and there was a Bermuda-based investor who had built up a large holding and he neither made a move to buy the company or to sell his shares. Someone has got to be holding shares when companies go under.

bletherer: Pjetr - basically agree with your analysis although I think if HET can even make a profit of the level you are talking about for one year its share price will at least double. Though she-ra is getting a lot of knocking on this BB the current share price is backing his/her argument: no company would be priced this far below book value unless "the market" thought that the slide into losses was not just a blip, but rather part of an irreversible decline. The interims clearly implied that a return to profitability later this year is a possibility, but we will have to wait and see whether that in fact materialises - it is not unknown for AIM-listed companies to see the world through rose-tinted specs. Meanwhile any further signs of "shareholder activism" could also (positively) affect the sp, as the city has a well-established habit of rewarding management shake-ups at struggling companies (whether or not it is really the management's fault). With a 20% rise this week there's a little momentum now as well - if the price gets above 65p then the bulls will be firmly in control and a short-term move back to the 90-100 mark would be a very real possibility.

pjetr: The discussion about the long term potential of HET is valid, however who knows who will be right and who will be wrong? And does it really matter to decide whether the current share price represents value or not? Some thoughts on the future 1. Yes, in 10 years time (2016) we can be pretty sure that a lot of people will be simply downloading their movies and games (through PC, TV, PS3 or 4,... connected to sky or google etc).But it won't happen overnight: there are many many technical and commercial hurdles. 2. Note that 'filmed entertainment' sales have Never In History been so high as today (in volume that is). Everybody's buying series on DVD like Lost, The Office etc etc (even Knight Rider is available). New technology presents threats but also opportunities. 3. Music 'sells' (and is shared) well online, but what about e-books? People are talking about them for many years already, but 100% of the population is still buying paper books. My point is that it's not because one category works online, that all categories will work online... Anyway, I think it's fair to say that selling movies and games in a disc-format will not go on forever, but will AT LEAST continue for 3-5 years. Is there value in HET? For the first time, HET provided operational results per division in their 1st HY results. 1st Half 2005-2006(000) ChoicesUK Local 860 ChoicesUK Stores -1540 ChoicesUK Direct 670 Mosaic 55 ChoicesUK TV -830 The results were clear about the 2nd half: Stores are back to profitability (modest), and the TV losses will soon turn into profits. 2nd half can get these BACK-TO-NORMAL results I'd say (I assume no profit growth for Local, Direct & Mosaic, modest profitability at Stores & TV): ChoicesUK Local 860 (same) ChoicesUK Stores 300 (modest profit) ChoicesUK Direct 670 (same) Mosaic 55 (same) ChoicesUK TV 100 (first time profit?) = almost 2 million of EBIT profit On a full year basis this would 4 million of EBIT, which gives 3 million NET (assuming 25% tax rate, no interest payments). Current market cap is 12 million ---->> P/E of 4. What HET needs to do 1) Prove that it can effectively make 2 million EBIT in 2HY. HET needs to show that they can get their business back to normal. 2) Investments in stores, stock etc must be kept as low as possible. Profits + Depreciation should be almost equal to Free Cash Flow. And they need to pay out the FCF as dividends. No use re-investing a lot of profits in a business that will eventually disappear. My conclusion HET must prove it can make decent money the coming 3-5 years, and show its commitment to returning all generated cash back to shareholders. If they do, the value of 1 share is at least 80-100p, imho! (FCF per share: 15 p, during 5 years, + terminal value generated by sale of leaseholds etc).

bletherer: I have a suspicion the ticks up are more a delayed reaction to 2 days ago - it was quite fantastic that buys of 1.2million did not impact the price as these must now be in very short supply. The thought occurred to me then that MM's might prefer to walk it up in dribs and drabs to avoid a stampede and a wild spike. Whereas a rising share price should, other things being equal, attract more sellers and fewer buyers, a rapidly rising share price can have the opposite effect in the short term, inspiring momentum buyers and discouraging sellers, who think it will go higher. Just a theory, but you must admit it's pretty hard to explain why buys of a few thousand have an apparently bigger effect than buys of over a million.

goonertone: Had been waiting for 50p(no reason other than a nice round support figure) to buy in but Mr G scuppered that so brought in yesterday. The company has an infrastructure that is capable of generating large profits and is trading profitably on most parts of the business. If they can turn the retail around then the current share price is ridiculous. Flip side is that if they can't then its a long haul to restructure. I personally think that as mentioned in the interims most of these sites can be made profitable but just not to the levels enjoyed in the early days of the rental market. Other areas like teleshopping and internet can take up the slack. Upside potential over 2 years 3 to 4 times current share price downside 25 -30% before taken over. Most importantly cashflow positive now with no major capex forseen. GT

siwel100: Almost overlooked is the current £20 million of console games being sold by HET, an area where they are already seeing increased sales. Next year has the full release of the next generation XBox360 and PS3 games consoles. Fatter margins and good hardware demand will feed through for HET, not to mention increased game rentals as new console owners test out the new games. Although like most retailers they are concerned by dvd piracy, the new copy protected DVD formats are coming out next year, HD DVD and Blue-Ray. The consortium behind the HD DVD format has already flagged it is eager for Chinese production to push the price of new machines down and the Blue-Ray consortium includes Sony and their new PS3 machine which will be a Blue-Ray DVD machine, 200million of which will be sold in the coming years. Of itself it may all be a little obscure in relation to HET but with all the Studios signed up to release DVD's on the new formats, piracy will become increasingly a thing of the past. Much mentioned is the "home delivery" option much advertised by numerous suppliers this year. Already there has been a tightening in the offer by many of the new suppliers with restrictions to a certain number of rentals per month.This increase in the cost of the offer together with the normal postal delay for reciept, should curb the penetration of this "concept" Further into the future is video on demand. This is more difficult to establish as a real threat to HET's DVD rental business, not least because the time frames are unknown and there will be a considerable technical investment by the user to actually use any potential service. Whtever develops it will have to compete with the almost total penetration of DVD players and low rental costs to customers. No one may be safe in a fast changing technical world, but HET has proved to be nimble and although this has been a very poor year for them including the transition costs to full DVD with a substantial write down on VHS stock, the company is adapting well and at current prices, the share price shows a substantial discount to worth not least because of the 11% dividend on offer and the commitment by the company to a steadily increasing dividend.
