thewheeliedealer: Hi all, My mate Peter @Conkers3 and myself did a ‘Twin Petes Investing’ Podcast a few days ago and part of our discussion includes ANG which reminds me a lot of PETS in terms of the Business Model – and I have done extremely well on the latter myself. We also chatted about loads of other Stocks and Ideas for research. We discussed the outlook for Markets and the most likely roadmap for the next couple of months, and as usual a fair bit of educational stuff with regards to Investing. Anyway, if you use Apple, Audioboom, Overcast or Spotify you can find it under the 'Conkers Corner' Channel (you want Podcast TPI 37) and you can find it on Soundcloud at the link below. It is also now on Youtube. I hope you enjoy it and find it useful, we try to keep them light and they are totally unscripted. Cheers, WD @wheeliedealer hTTps://
energeticbacker: Angling Direct offers an opportunity for investors to benefit from the angling boom. While the share price has bounced-off March lows, it remains well down on year highs, suggesting the market might be missing a trick in failing to reflect the positive market environment.

dicktrade: ANG trying to raise 5.5million to buy stock !! they have missed the boat , there is no stock in the country , they missed all the sales when fishing was first allowed and their shops were closed , the independent retailers who opened their doors have taken a fortune and now there is no stock to buy and china cant catch up . time to get out before ANG goes BANG .
graham1ty: One detail has been bothering me, that Germany, France and Netherlands were up 25%, 71% and 87% and now represent 42% of international sales. Yet, international sales were up just 7.6% ? There is slight apples and pears there, as in the one para ANG do not distinguish between international sales and website sales. But if 42% of international sales were in those three countries ( assuming that internet sales are in the same proportions as overall international sales) that makes £2.1m out of £5m. And if they grew by 25%, 71% and 87%, let us hazard a guess at 50% growth averaged between the three. So, prior year sales to those three would have been about £1.4m ( ie £2.1m adjusted for 50% growth). We also know international sales grew by 7.6% to £5m, so must have been £4.64m the year before. Subtract one from the other and you get “other” ( ie not German, French or Dutch) international sales of £3.2m last year ( £4.6m - £1.4m) but only £2.9m this year ( £5m-£2.1m). Is that right ? That sales outside the main three European markets actually fell c10% ?
graham1ty: Bookbroker, they give no guidance or evidence when they might get profitable. Is it £60m, £80m ? When ? And there is no talk of economies of scale, or buying power, or closing underperforming stores, to raise margins. They cannot pretend that all 35 stores will be profitable. I now have the new Cenkos note. Adjusted EBITDA is £1m below forecast ( on that revenue, that is 4% margin hit). Revenue was £1.7m below forecast. Cenkos have dropped 2020 profit by £1m and the following year by £0.6m. This gives adjusted EBITDA of £0.6m, then £2.6m. BUT at the pretax level it is a £1.4m LOSS in 2020 and £0.3m LOSS in 2021. ANG is forecast still to be making losses in two years, even on forecast revenue of £65m..............not good
wan: There is no arguing that ANG delivered in terms of strong rates of growth. I was hoping they would also update the market on the weather related impact, which was somewhat inevitable. Margins will need some focused attention, but due to action already taken, they are already expecting margins to improve to expected levels. Year end 31st January 2019 IFRS 16, EBITDA loss was £444k and they are indicating a loss of no more than £500k for year ending 31st Jan 2020. So, a set back which is not insurmountable as they enter the traditionally stronger 1st half period, exemplified by achieving record sales for a new store opening, despite the weather.
wan: I don't think you can compare Angling Direct with the general retail sector. Specialists/niche players such as Angling Direct do not need to pay high rents/rates to be in prime locations, because their customers are prepared to travel further for the right products and services, or even be in locations not suited to other retail outlets (e.g. next to a lake complex). With strong growth achieved across ANG's network of stores and online, it appears that the specialist/niche aspect is already playing its part in differentiating ANG from general retail. ANG is delivering in terms of assembling a strategic mix of well placed stores and increased online presence. Another factor perhaps overlooked is bait, which a very high percentage of anglers routinely need (probably 99% of anglers), and results in a combination of regularly returning to the store and/or venturing back online to purchase their specialist bait and which usually results in buying more than just bait! All further supported by a loyalty/rewards scheme, which on the last count had more than 5m members. Let's see what the Trading Update brings.
graham1ty: My problem with ANG is that it is impossible to value. They are expanding rapidly through news stores, acquisitions, and online. BUT they are not forecast to break even until 2021, and even that is little better than break even. They were incredibly lucky to raise £20m in 2018 ( Clever or lucky ?) and have far too much money for expansion. That bit is easy, buying revenue. But as we know from G4M, AO. and others, revenue is vanity. It is profit we need. And at the moment, ANG does not give us “markers”; or KPIs to let us know if they are on track. It is all on trust. We need quite specific targets so that the Board can be held to account for meeting/missing those targets. The targets will include measures of cost, revenue, margin, average spend, balance sheet cash etc. At the moment, the Company has too much money so can throw money at expansion, or acquisitions, without the usual small company restraints of lack of resources. Why have a meeting to discuss “is this the best use of our money ?”, when every department can have a bit ? I worry about lack of financial discipline. So, will they get profitable ? Probably. When ? Who knows. How profitable ? Anybody’s guess. ANG need to get into the market specific targets. Then shareholders can judge if they are on track or not
wan: ANG's strategy is not one based on simply opening store after store, with some key acquisitions also making a big difference. Take the most recent acquisition, Eric's Angling, a well regarded business that also had a notable online presence, which had combined revenues for 2018 of £5.2m. Given the strength of ANG's offering (which is not standing still), strategic store opening can yield more that just ending up with a new well located store! The retailing of specialist fishing tackle is a very different business to most retail businesses, and in my view ANG will continue to significantly outperform the overall retail market. Interestingly, net cash 31st January 2019 - £13.5m and net cash 31st July 2019 - £13.3m, achieved despite new store openings and operational investment. Clearly, further business investment and an acquisition has been made post the July figure, but the previous 6 months trading may highlight an important trend.....Time will tell!
