Accounting for Visa Europe
Following the disposal of our share in Visa Europe on 21 June, we received £452.8m of cash
A net pre-tax gain on disposal of £98.7m has been recognised in finance income in the Group’s income statement as a separately disclosed item. Tax on the above gain is £86.6m
In calculating the dividend, the expected profit after tax for the full year has been adjusted to exclude the net gain on the disposal of our Visa Europe asset|
|Interims are due on Tuesday 9th August and I see the Visa Europe disposal being a major factor, it was completed on 21st of June, 2016 !!!
What will they do with the cash ???
Special Dividend to return some money to shareholders ??? The lock up of placing by original Venture Capitalists was from 07/04/2016 and was for 90 days ... by my calculation that is 07/07/2016... which has past. I suspect Venture Capitalists would appreciate a special dividend before selling any more shares ???
There are roughly 2,000 million Ordinary Shares in issue. With just the up-front cash which was roughly £500 million so a potential 25p a share special dividend. They also have Series B Preferred Stock in Visa Inc and could receive in the region of €283m in earn-out conditional upon etc
Then there is also potential for a Maiden Interim dividend as well ???
Proposed disposal of interest in Visa Europe
Annual report page 76
On 2 November 2015, we announced the proposed disposal of our approximate 5.9% interest in Visa Europe to Visa Inc. The disposal, which is expected to complete in Q2 2016, is a result of Visa Inc.’s agreement to purchase 100% of Visa Europe, subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions.
Under the terms of the disposal, Worldpay will receive a mixture of cash and noncash consideration currently estimated to be worth in aggregate up to €1.2bn. This is made up of up-front consideration of approximately €544m of cash and €375m of Series B Preferred Stock in Visa Inc. In addition, if the earn-out pays out in full, Worldpay could receive in the region of €283m in earn-out conditional upon achieving certain criteria relating to the incremental net revenue of Visa Europe during the earn-out period. .... etc|
