rik shaw: Admiral Group plc announces completion of sale of Penguin Portals and Preminen comparison businesses to RVU Admiral Group plc (“Admiral̶1; or “the Group”) announces that, following regulatory and competition authority approvals, ZPG Comparison Services Holdings UK Limited (“RVU") has completed the purchase of Penguin Portals Group (“Penguin Portals”, comprising online comparison portals Confused.com, Rastreator.com and LeLynx.fr and the Group’s technology operation Admiral Technologies) and its 50% share of Preminen Price Comparison Holdings Limited (“PreminenR21;). MAPFRE has also sold its 25% holding in Rastreator and 50% holding in Preminen as part of the transaction. The total transaction value, including the amount attributable to MAPFRE, is £508 million, and has been satisfied in cash on completion. The proceeds to Admiral, net of minority interests and transaction costs, amounts to approximately £460 million. In light of the strong solvency and liquidity position of the Group, Admiral expects to return a majority of the net proceeds to shareholders, though will retain a portion to support investment in new business development over the coming years. Further details will be provided at the Group’s Interim Results in August 2021.

unastubbs: The only Welsh company in the FTSE100 - and that's a sosban fact! from Questor (Daily Telegraph today) Questor: buy this car insurer – its 5pc yield won’t stop it growing Questor share tip: this company seems to do everything right, from the way it funds its business to how it uses its data An entrepreneurial insurance company sounds like a contradiction in terms: we tend to expect our financial services firms to be predictable and staid. But the London stock market offers at least one exception. Admiral may now be a household name and have millions of customers, but it was founded just 30 years ago and retains the entrepreneurial spirit of its founders even though they have stepped back from running the company day to day. “It was started in 1991 by two guys who’d been to business school together,” said Simon Young, who has held the stock in his Axa Framlington UK Equity Income fund since he took it over in 2018 and in other funds before that. “But the new chief executive has also been there a long time and is cast in the same mould.” He said the business had innovated constantly over its three decades and remained ahead of its rivals. “It’s always been a low-cost operation,” Mr Young said. “The founders realised that people loved to be surprised by low prices and innovation. It very quickly started to cut out the middleman by selling its car cover directly over the internet – even in the early 2000s it did more than 60pc of its business online.” The most important thing for an insurance business is the underwriting: assessing the risk involved in each policy accurately and pricing it appropriately. Admiral got off to a good start by getting this right. “By great attention to detail the founders got to the point where they really understood underwriting. In particular, they realised that the more questions you asked, the better you priced your policies,” said Mr Young. “Other insurers have not really caught up. Some don’t have the analytics, the best-in-class underwriting discipline, and end up more with a boom-bust cycle in profitability. Admiral has been consistently profitable.” Next the firm’s bosses realised that they had a lot of data and thought: what can we do with it all? “So they started confused.com, the price comparison website,” the Axa fund manager said. But they also used their data to help the company diversify into other types of insurance. Now, in addition to almost 4.8m cars in Britain, Admiral insures 1.2m homes and 100,000 travellers. It has further broadened its offering into personal loans, for which it has 100,000 customers. Then, in Mr Young’s words, came the realisation that “people in Europe want the same things”. He said the insurer had suffered a “false start” in Germany but now had businesses in France, Italy and Spain, as well as America. All told it has about 7.5m policyholders. “Five years ago the firm was losing £5m a year in Europe but it now makes £100m, against £600m in Britain,” Mr Young said. “I think it’s at a tipping point on the Continent and the eventual prize could be multiples of the current figure.” He said the insurer had also adopted a clever way to fund its operations. “It’s good at getting third parties – ‘reinsurers217; – to provide the capital to back the policies it sells. In Britain it underwrites only about a quarter of its business itself but it still earns a commission on each policy as well as any income from add-ons. “Also, as an insurer you get paid up front when the policy starts. This cash, called the ‘float’, is about £4bn a year and, because it earns interest, Admiral will be a big beneficiary if interest rates rise.” He said that, as a result of this funding structure, the company made returns on its equity capital of more than 50pc. Using other people’s capital also allows you to pay most of your profits to shareholders as dividends – almost 90pc of profits in Admiral’s case, a very high figure. Normally keeping back so little to fund expansion might ring alarm bells, but Admiral’s model clearly works: since flotation its shares have achieved an annual total return of more than 22pc. “People ask: what is Admiral’s secret sauce? My answer is that it does many things better than anyone else in the market and doesn’t rest on its laurels. The direction of travel is right and I hope it will retain the nimbleness it had when it was a ‘challenger217; business,” Mr Young said. The 5pc yield (if we include the special dividend)is naturally attractive to income investors but those who want growth could do worse than simply reinvest the dividends. Questor says: buy

speedsgh: Numis downgrades Admiral on short-term risk - HTTPS://citywire.co.uk/funds-insider/news/the-expert-view-lloyds-smith-and-nephew-and-admiral/a1325963#i=4 Numis has downgraded insurer Admiral (ADM) as it continues to feel the impact of claims inflation and there are further headwinds to come. Analyst Nick Johnson downgraded his recommendation from ‘add’ to ‘hold’ with a target price of £21.60 on the shares, which dipped 21p to £22.98. The insurer used its recent trading update to flag the continued impact of higher UK motor claims inflation last year. ‘Although this is completely obfuscated by exceptional back-book profits in full-year 2019 earnings, further front book margin compression has an impact on underlying profitability and extends outwards the likely headwind from reducing profit commission earnings in the coming years,’ he said. Johnson added that the ‘balance of risk has tipped towards the downside in the short term’.

Analyst Paul De’Ath retained his ‘sell’ recommendation on the stock despite ‘excellent headline profits’ in its first-half results. The shares rose 3.8% to £21.10 yesterday. ‘Admiral has long traded on a premium to the rest of the UK non-life insurers, but we believe that this is not reflective of the actual outlook,’ he said. ‘The business remains fundamentally a UK motor insurer where Admiral is now a mature incumbent rather than a fast-growth challenger… Admiral remains priced for significant growth but this does not reflect the medium-term outlook.’
