spursspurs: I sold in October at £7.40 having bought at £6.40 so was ok but should have sold above £8!! I am looking to buy back in but the lack of news and drifting share price is stopping me!
spursspurs: I cant find any adverse news that is contributing to the share price going south! Any views anyone??
1inamilion: United Business Media plc symbol:UBM FTSE 250-listed company United Business Media doesn't make a lot of headlines itself. But through its press-release distribution business, PR Newswire, it helps to create much of the news in your daily paper. Its other global business is CMP, specialising in business-to-business media and events. CMP is a diverse print and online B2B media empire, with titles as wide-ranging as Network Computing, (a web search engine for doctors) and the Farmer's Guardian. In recent years, UBM has reduced its reliance on old-fashioned newsprint, and moved into faster-growing areas such as online publishing and event organisation. In fact, print brought in less than 50% of last year's revenues of £775 million, and is set to decline further. We are impressed with UBM's ability to reinvent itself, and forecast 2-5% revenue growth for most divisions, with profit margins stable or advancing slightly. One of UBM's most attractive qualities is its generous shareholder returns policy. The company has an ongoing share buy-back programme, and plans to return £150 million of its cash surplus to shareholders by the end of 2007. It's also possible that UBM will sell PR Newswire, valued at around £500 million. In the past, the company has returned sales profits to shareholders in the form of special dividends. Meanwhile, UBM's asset mix looks set for long-term growth, and acquisitions would provide further horsepower. Management has a strong track record of delivering returns quickly from new businesses. We estimate the company has headroom of £500 million, and expect this to be used for acquisitions. If no suitable targets can be found, the company may return more cash to shareholders. While we are bearish on the Media sector as a whole, UBM stands out for its growing internet business. Also, despite one of the higher growth rates in its B2B publishing peer-group, it is valued at a discount on its P/E ratio, which looks unjustified. We therefore have an Accumulate recommendation on the stock. This year, we expect to see the share price move from 714p up towards our fair value estimate of 800p, putting UBM on a P/E ratio similar to its competitors. Investors looking for a company with solid returns, attractive assets and excellent dividend potential may want to hold the front page for UBM. Last updated: 05 February 2007
ronjen: 3rd June 2005 United Business Media Proposed Special Dividend and Share Consolidation Following a strategic review of options to maximise the value for Shareholders of UBM's market research business, NOP World, United Business Media plc announced on 15 April 2005 that it had agreed to sell NOP World to GfK Aktiengesellschaft for £383 million in cash. Subsequent to the announcement of the sale, on 12 May 2005, UBM stated its intention to return £300 million of the sale proceeds to shareholders by way of a special dividend. Following the successful completion of the NOP World disposal on 1 June 2005, the Board is proposing to pay a Special Dividend of 89 pence per Existing Ordinary Share. In order to maintain comparability of the UBM share price and earnings and dividend per share before and after the payment of the Special Dividend, the Board is also seeking Shareholder approval to implement a consolidation of UBM's issued ordinary share capital. The Share Consolidation will replace 17 Existing Ordinary Shares with 14 New Ordinary Shares. UBM has posted a circular to Shareholders today setting out the details of the Special Dividend and the Share Consolidation and a notice of an Extraordinary General Meeting to be held at 10 a.m. on 20 June 2005 to seek the requisite approval from Shareholders. Expected timetable of principal events: Latest time for receipt of Forms of Proxy to be valid at the EGM 10.00 a.m. on 18 June Extraordinary General Meeting 10.00 a.m. on 20 June Last time for dealings in Existing Ordinary Shares 4.30 p.m. on 20 June Record Date for entitlement to the Special Dividend and for the Share Consolidation 6.00 p.m. on 20 June Shares marked ex Special Dividend 21 June Admission of New Ordinary Shares and dealings commence 8.00 a.m. on 21 June New Ordinary Shares credited to CREST accounts 21 June Payment of Special Dividend 28 June Despatch of share certificates for New Ordinary Shares and cheques in respect of the sale of fractional entitlements to New Ordinary Shares 30 June
raging bull1: what was the cost to ubm in the original instance for the c5 stake? and now with the c5 wars potentially building/hotting up in the next few months what is the likely affect on the share price? i am presuming that murdoch will be the prime bidder and therefore ubm should benefit considerably from this sale thus affecting the price in a northerly direction. afterall this share is hardly for the feint harted. anyone with any views on this matter?
