aishah: Plus500 Limited Withholding Tax on Dividends
lydnem: Nursing a loss!!! Have you seen the share price!!! The end has started as you say. They will be regulated out of business imo
sailing john: CMCX Q3 TS today - Increased active clients but ARPU down by same amount Couldn't give any view on future - far less positive than IGG Off 7% at the open now recovered a little PLUS strongest today - back to 400 after taking a bit of a beating over the past two days Just been looking at divis for the past two years and although they only state that they will pay 60% of earnings as Divis, last year they returned all profit after tax (and in 2014 90% of PAT) for the year via divis and specials I think they might do the same again to show confidence resulting in a final divi inc special of 57c (24.6c final and 32c special) or 45p based on my forecast PAT (dyor) I think that would get the market excited as over 10% of MC giving an annual historic yield at current share price of over 15% Hopefully outlook statement a little more like IGG than CMCX We will find out on 7th Feb SJ
andrewbaker: In round numbers, Plus500's share price has halved in a couple of months. Plus500 themselves have said that the Cyprus action will not materially impact the business financially, and has now said that the FCA UK clampdown will materially affect their UK business, which is just 20% of group turnover. And the dividend is good and well covered, and they have lots of cash. So ... why the big drop? : Because of fear, and because the founders sold shares a while ago to raise money for their own personal spending. So, either sell out now because you don't know what's happening (does anyone, for sure?), or keep holding for a price recovery and because it's a good dividend stock. And maybe even buy more, when the price starts to tick back up again, as it will. There are only three options: buy, hold or fold. And it's interesting to note that Plus500 are in the business of selling those three options to people who want quicker results as traders than the longer term returns of investors. Time will tell, but for me; I'm ignoring the fear aspect and holding for the longer term. Nuff said.
andrewbaker: Trump may not be most people's idea of a benefit play, but as regards Plus500, I say he is. The uncertainty that now exists, and will continue for a long while, will increase the trading numbers of PLUS, and given the substantial profits that are made from trading, this business will prosper even more than it already does. The fall in share price because the founders took cash out for other things, provides a great entry or add opportunity, IMHO. Disclosure: as previously stated, long; and staying so.
jpfoster21: some thoughts on the current Plus share price if anyone fancies a read hxxps:// Any comments/discussion welcome.
dasv: markets live just now 11:09AM Plus500 Ltd (PLUS:LSE): Last: 376.25, up 6.25 (+1.69%), High: 403.00, Low: 370.25, Volume: 6.87m BE Quite a turn of events, this. PM Indeed PM Left field bid news here Real time stream connected. New messages will appear here the moment they are published. BE And let's be clear here. It's a shotgun engagement. PM You term this an engagement, rather than a marriage... PM That feels significant BE Well, yes. I think we're a long way away from talking about this deal as if it's completed. BE Basically, it's a shotgun engagement before she's even had the chance to pee on the pregnancy test. PM Bryce! BE Sorry. You're reading the FT, to remind ...... BE So there are a few important things to note .......... BE Firstly, the MAC BE We don't know what it is. But we know there is one. BE The Material Adverse Change clause. BE Conference call was vague to the point of obfuscatory, but we did get this .... BE The "general concept is if business material declines from what was presented to us, this clause will take effect” BE Which in the context of a business that's just lost half its business, feels significant. BE We'll be told about the specific MAC scenarios later, apparently, though no indication when. BE In the meantime, Plus saying it'll be one month until the ID checks are done BE And this deal won't be completed until, perhaps, September BE (With no UK takeover code applying, please remember, so timelines are even fudgier than usual) BE Secondly ....... PM One of the conditions is that it's done by eyar end, mind BE True. BE Secondly ..... BE We learned via the conference call that Playtech approached Plus500, and that “discussions began over a week ago” BE I assume "over a week" means about eight days ago. PM hehehe PM Maybe 9 BE That's not a lot of DD, really. BE So we have a deal on the table for September that can be called off on as-yet undefined terms. BE It seems to me that either Plus500 will be worth a lot more than 400p by September, or a lot less. BE So, yeah, it's an engagement. An engagement before they both head down to Superdrug to find out the specifics of their predicament. BE Thirdly ...... BE We have acceptance from the Plus500 crew ...... BE ... who have 35.6% BE But not, notably, from Odey. PM Interesting, taht BE Yup. No mention in the statement, and one would assume as largest shareholder Odey would be wall-crossed over the weekend. BE Read a lot of arb stuff this morning saying Odey's in sub 300p so will be happy. BE Personally, I'm not so sure. BE Odey funds had 3.97% of Plus at float BE Went up to 13% during July 2014 at around the 440p level. BE Then up to 20% by buying in May BE Given the volatility we can only stab at the prices there, but using closing levels Odey looks to have been buying at prices around 478p, 376p, 322p and all the way down to 285p. BE Back of the envelope, I reckon Odey's average in price will be about 400p. PM hehe PM So currently 6% out of the money PM And there I was thinking the Odey buying was rather clairvoyant... BE If Odey (or Odey's deputies, as we've mentioned before) is confident of the business I can't understand why the fund would tender at breakeven. PM Hmm -- but the statement from Plus pretty much admits that they aren't up to managing the business they have created. certainly not on the publicly-listed stage PM I suspect -- barring a MAC event -- that Odey have no option PM But to accept PM But we'll see PM Meanwhile, it's fair to early to say whether Playtech becomes Dan McC's new plaything BE Yup -- what's interesting here is that it's capitulation from the Plus500 management. Hard to see a holder voting to basically force management to continue running a business they don't want to. BE Though if Odey was averaging down through May volatility for a rescue bid then I guess that would've been extremely .... clairvoyant. BE Have some sellside. Here's UBS. BE Playtech today announced the proposed acquisition of Plus500 for 400p per share, an 8% premium to Friday's close which itself was less than half the 12 month high of 781p seen before the news on 18 May that the "UK Financial Conduct Authority required a review of Plus500's anti-money laundering financial sanction systems… prohibiting all transactions for existing customers until additional AML procedures have been completed" (source: Playtech's press release today). This significantly impacted Plus500's share price and the business, with its management today indicating revenues are expected to be below 2014's levels "with margins expected to be significantly lower" as, according to the company's release today, "recent events and associated publicity have meant that Plus500 has become the subject of increased scrutiny and has received additional requests for information from its regulators". BE In 2014, Plus500's revenues were $229m/£139m, EBITDA $145m/£88m and EPS 89c/54p. At its recent AGM on 27 May, Plus500 revealed Q1 sales of $82m and that through the end of May it had added a further $26m, putting year-to-date revenues ahead of H1 14's level, but since the FCA inquiry c$4m of revenues had been lost. It said at the AGM it expected it would take another month to re-approve existing customers' documentation and modify the process for onboarding new customers. It had $92m of cash at the AGM date, meaning the acquisition price represents a c£400m EV, or 4.5x trailing EBITDA, although this year's profits should be much lower. BE Given Plus500 only announced the regulatory issues two weeks ago, it seems to us that the deal has been concluded in seemingly record time. We believe Playtech's management will likely feel that its own experience of operating a multi-jurisdictional regulated business will allow it to resolve Plus500's regulatory issues as fast as possible. However, investors are likely to be nervous, especially given the pace at which the deal has been concluded and given that Plus500's management appears willing to take a price almost half of where the shares were a month ago. BE Nothing from Liberum yet, sadly. BE Here's Daniel Stewart instead. BE Plus500 today announced that they have reached an agreement with Playtech regarding the terms of a recommended cash acquisition through which the entire issued ordinary share capital of Plus500 will be acquired by Playtech. The recent suspension of Plus500 shares and freezing of customer accounts whilst anti-money laundering procedures were tightened was enough to question the sustainability of the Plus500 business model. Playtech’s expertise in operating in multi-jurisdictional regulated markets will go some way towards alleviating such fears. Furthermore, we believe the acquisition makes strategic sense for Playtech, which recently acquired TradeFX, an online CFD, binary options broker and trading platform provider, and enhances its offering within the online trading market. The offer of 400p per share, represents a c.8% premium to Friday’s closing share price of 370p, valuing Plus500 at £459.6m. The acquisition is expected to be immediately earnings enhancing, with completion set for September 2015. BE Which says nearly nothing, as per.
slopsjon2: 18 May 2015 Plus500 Ltd. ("Plus500" or "the Company") Statement regarding recent speculation Plus500, a leading online service provider for retail customers to trade CFDs internationally, notes the recent fall in its share price and the market speculation that it has not paid its recent dividend. Plus500 can confirm that it paid its final and special dividend of $65 million in full on Friday 15 May as previously notified to the market. Plus500 currently has in excess of $88 million in cash reserves (excluding that held in client segregated accounts). In addition, shareholders should note that Plus500's UK subsidiary, Plus500UK Limited ("Plus500UK"), has in recent weeks been implementing certain enhanced client on boarding and Anti-Money Laundering (AML) processes which have resulted in additional documentation checks being required on existing and new Plus500UK customer accounts. This has led to an increased volume of documentation being reviewed by our client onboarding team, and some Plus500UK customers are currently experiencing delays in receiving the necessary approval to open new accounts, and new trades on their existing accounts and / or withdraw monies. Only the Plus500UK regulated business is impacted, and the Company will continue to offer its services to new and existing customers through its other regulated subsidiaries in Cyprus and Australia. Currently c.50% of Plus500's revenue is derived from Plus500UK, and c.45% of Plus500UK's customers have passed Plus500's electronic verification process and are therefore allowed to trade. Those customers who are impacted are not able to open new positions until they are approved by the client on boarding team, however they are still able to freely close out open positions and to service these existing positions with additional Margin. As usual, under AML regulations, existing customers (whether electronically verified or not) are unable to make withdrawals from their accounts until they have provided Plus500UK with fully compliant AML documents. All Plus500 customer funds are held within segregated client accounts, held with major financial institutions, until further withdrawals are permitted. Plus500UK has notified and is in close dialogue with the FCA in respect of these changes to its AML processes.
dasv: BTW excellent performance in PLUS share price from Oct mini crash. more than 60% up and even now only trades on a PE 11. Can't help thinking the market doesn't trust PLUS though considering this valuation. Growth companies which are really trusted command much higher PE's. E.g. ABC, RMV let alone Allied Minds or ASC. -- undervaluedassets - IG has been trying to target a different class of customer. PLUS is going for the novices. IG seems to have been going for those with experience. BTW re: current markets, in China there's been a huge wave of new share dealing account sign-ups as property as an investment asset class has been heavily restricted. I think it's not much of a stretch that as markets rise further from here, more newcomers will start betting on the markets. It's once the markets have made new highs that newbies start thinking they can also win. So from that point of view, PLUS may find it easier, not harder to acquire new customers. -- it's so much more pleasant having SSW on filter. Suddenly the PLUS thread is a relatively civilised place again.
mark2market: It's fascinating isn't it? All this volatility in the PLUS share price. Why don't they offer a CFD on their own share? Their equity CFD offering is rather patchy, and the spreads unlikely to attract the discerning. Obviously with Bitcoin it's more smoke and mirrors regarding the pricing, and student Bitcoin traders weren't too discerning.
