kirkie001: Bloomberg leaked it just after market close on Wednesday. So Augean had to put an announcement out. The question is - who leaked? MS? or Augean? (Talking of which - the second AUG announcement mentioned the MS statement - I've not seen this. Can anyone point me to the statement they released?)
lbo: The way it leaked was very suspicious! It they were serious then they could have just said nothing rather then confirm "preliminary stages of considering'. I bet we are all in the 'preliminary stages of considering' making a bid too! But most of us can't get the backing or justify the price! LOL"Morgan Stanley Infrastructure, an infrastructure-investment arm of the U.S. bank, confirmed that it is in the preliminary stages of considering an approach to Augean in response to recent press reports. The move was first reported by Bloomberg.There can be no certainty that an offer will ultimately be made for Augean, nor as to its potential terms, Morgan Stanley Infrastructure said.In response, Augean confirmed it hasn't received an approach regarding an offer from Morgan Stanley Infrastructure and said that a further announcement will be made when appropriate"
pdosullivan: Good to see another broker (Stifel) initiate coverage of Augean today. It has a Buy rating and 294p target price.
lbo: Sold 1m last year too 21 March 2019 Augean plc ("Augean" or " Company") PDMR Dealings The Company has been notified that on 20 March 2019 Roger McDowell, Non-Executive Director, sold 1,000,000 Ordinary shares of 10p each in the capital of the Company ("Ordinary Shares") at a price of 97.5 pence per Ordinary Share. Following this transaction Roger McDowell holds 3,000,000 Ordinary Shares in the Company, representing 2.88% of the total issued share capital.
faz: Gargoyle states the position re the HMRC tax correctly. If nothing else it shows Augean to be in a cash postive situation - they can afford to do this. Some appeals can last for years; this is unlikely here but there may be a backlog for the obvious reason. In regard to the Harwood sale, one outcome can be to improve share liquidity. But that works two ways - if no buyer is found the shares can fall til buyers emerge. If you believe in the company's strategy that is a good time to buy, as I have done recently.
sharw: markr5 - Christopher Mills is a partner and Chief Investment Officer of Harwood Capital. Because he is a director then they are declared in director interests by association (in the same way that holdings by directors marital or civil partners are) but if you bother to look at the last annual report you will see "these shares are held in or managed by Harwood Capital LLP (shares held through Harwood Capital LLP, Oryx International Growth Fund Ltd and North Atlantic Smaller Companies Investment Trust). If you bother to look here you will even get a breakdown into the three funds
gargoyle2: As I understand it, the landfill tax claimed by HMRC has been paid in full on a without prejudice basis, i.e. it's been paid in order to stop interest accruing, but on the basis that AUG still believes it is not due. So if it loses the tax proceedings, it does not need to pay any more. If it wins, it will recover the money back, plus interest.
markr5: I'm thinking about buying some AUG and wondered if anyone could help with a couple of questions? I've read this thread back to 2017 and I've tried to get the gist of the HMRC situation. It seemed to go quiet on here regarding this issue since 2019. From what I can gather, the tax has been paid and it has now turned into a potentially positive situation, if they win the argument. I've read elsewhere though, that there is still some tax outstanding to HMRC and that it could still represent a problem, so i am confused. I also find it concerning that C Mills has recently sold 1500000 shares at 230P. Does anyone know how much of the company he still owns?
kinwah: Channel 4 programme last night was very bullish for Augean. The Dispatches programme, The Dirty Truth about your Rubbish, was about the growth in incineration and energy from waste which is harming the recycling effort. As AUG handles the EfW residues it looks like it will see some serious growth.
morton2011: Woozle1, Augean haz landfill sites very cash generative. It's really quite a simple business to dig a hole and then fill it.There are very few haz sites which allows for premium pricing. It's the licencing which is the difficult part and Augean are good at that albeit they bought their haz landfill sites.The landfill tax however has kept increasing and is much greater than the premium. The combination of pricing which is what the customer is interested in and allows competitors to offer alternative treatments, often these are pretty sham but that is the waste market. By not charging lft on a portion of their waste streams allows Augean to be competitive in the waste market. If I am a producer of nuclear waste my options are extremely limited and landfill is the only one. Augean put nuclear waste in the same holes and charge a premium premium + lft. The price is set more by what Augean think is the max income they will get Vs volume. There are other waste streams like this for the which landfill is the best option but why would Augean take any risk on landfill tax interpretation for them if so.I don't know which waste streams are involved in this case as Augean are not saying. The price rise we can estimate if they lose as there is an average gate ex lft price in their accounts and you then add £94.15 per tonne to that. So it will easily double in price to the customer.Augean may still keep the waste at the new price if they lose the tax case but seems unlikely as other treatment processes would be being offered to these wastes at double the prices they can currently charge. They must be worried about this or they could simply agree to pay the tax going forwards while continuing to protest innocence for past practices, as their customers will pick up the bill. They then fight the historic charges in the courts for years and lots of options to ring fence that risk if so.Still a good company with valuable assets , it's the forward p/e and pricing of share price I was questioning.
