fenners66: >thaisi 23 Jun '22 - 21:45 - 13925 of 13929 "But Spud 25% is absolutely massive supposing a company bought back 50% would it still make no difference? I guess it makes it easier to increase earnings per share without doing anything?" Not specifically this buyback from Aviva - but more about companies doing buybacks in general: I thing the cash should be spent elsewhere but - if they are to be done....... Companies these days are reluctant to hold cash on the Bal Sheet. Anal-ysts believe that this reduces return on equity - as a ratio or % So if they have no sparkling investment ideas (why not?!) they buyback shares with surplus cash - or worse borrow to buyback as they see surplus cash paying for it.... But if a company is doing well and has surplus cash in a rising stock market , where is their share price going to be ? Answer - they overpay towards the top end. When a company is not doing as well , not generating surplus cash the converse is true share price undershoots. Some of the companies I follow can now do buybacks at almost half of the price they have been paying less than a year later. Have their earnings changed that much - no. So a compromise ? Hold the cash on the balance sheet, wait for the market to drop and get the buyback at value for money prices . Just keeping the cash on the balance sheet strengthens it , the threat of a fully funded buyback opposite of a stock overhang if you like , I believe would actually help check share price fall when markets change. An expensive buyback already executed cannot do that.
cyberian: Hi eurofox or another informed poster here....ADVFN Financials feed is showing a Mkt. Cap of £16.7 billion with 3.927 billion voting shares, whereas AV. in a recent RNS (31st May) gave voting rights of number of shares as 2,802,532,692 giving a Mkt.cap of £11.9 billion. On latter (if correct) it would suggest a PE of 6.05 at a current share price of 425p, and not 8.49 PE as shown. Have I missed something?
typo56: metis20, I think you need to distinguish between the consolidation and the capital return. The company have returned 101.69p per original share, equivalent to 24% of your holding at a share price of 423.7p. If you wish you can reinvest that money, thereby increasing your percentage stake in the company, in much the same way as you could reinvest dividend income. Doing so will give you a larger stake in the overall dividend distribution. (Clearly not everyone can do this as there wouldn't be enough shares to go around!). The point is, you could do this with or without the consolidation and the result would be the same. The reason for the consolidation is simply to maintain a similar share price and not spook the market. Arguably this is more trouble than it's worth, because new consolidated shares have to be issued, SEDOL/ISIN numbers change etc which confuses brokers and means in some cases people are unable to sell their holdings for a couple of days.
prokartace: Shouldn't the share price rise as with the share consolidation the future EPS must jump by 25% Also the comment about the possibility of investors buying back the shares they lost will also have a positive effect on the share price In fact I am going to buy back today before the investors receive the payment for the consolidation in the next couple of days
1robbob: I know I got kicked weeks ago for emphasising the maths of the share consolidation and cash return. I think this morning has proven the case, as mentioned by others The basis of the Capital return was that 101.69 would represent 24% of the share price pre consolidation and distribution At the closing price on Friday of 408p, 101.69p represented 24.92% - So the share price this morning was always going to open lower as a higher cash percentage had been returned in reality As others have said with a closing price of 408p on Friday. The mathematical opening price this morning should have been 403p As the AV share price has been below 423.7p for a few weeks. There has been no point in buying before it went ex cap as the price would be lower on going ex I wonder....With the Q1 update on Wednesday, another Share Buy-back programme announcement!!!
last of the mohicans: I know I've never posted on any AV. thread before, but given the drop in the share price in the last few days, I'm predicting that there going to change the conversion ratio if the share price stays around this 395/396 level to 74 per 100 instead of 76. Anyone else in agreement with me or do you all think it will stay at 76 ? LOTM
eurofox: The lower the share price goes, a greater proportion of shares will be needed to reflect the capital being returned, so even more than 24% of shares will be deducted from holdings. The 0.76 ratio cited at the moment was merely an example of the ratio at an share price of 424p. The actual ratio to be used will be computed immediately before the event to keep the closing price as close as possible to the opening price (barring activity during the opening auction at 7.50 am).
cassini: MJ19. You will have fewer shares after the share consolidation, but you will still get the same total amount of divi that you did before the consolidation, given whatever your holding was. However, you will now have money in your pocket from the AV capital return. If you take that money and buy more (consolidated) AV shares, you will also get the divi from them. Thus, for no extra outlay of money from yourself, your divi payments will have increased. As a side effect, the increased divi per share after consolidation may drive up the AV share price as well... (edit: of course if everyone tries to buy more AV shares with their capital return money the day it becomes available, the price of AV shares may rocket and no longer look like a good price, defeating the purpose of buying more. Maybe a better strategy is to buy more before the capital return cash arrives in your trading account, then just pocket the capital return cash when it comes? Who knows. Price is everything...)
1robbob: tornado I don't really understand your point Market Capitalisation = No for shares x share price At the current share price of 434p the Market Cap is circa £16bn For the Market cap to reach the same level post consolidation the share price would need to reach 570p ...seems a meaningless calculation to me, as they have £3.8bn less capital in the business!!
tornado12: Is a big reduction in MC whilst the share price remains in similar range to precovid and current MC .. That’s my dilemma if really the share price won’t move to compensate original MC. Was waiting for share consolidation before adding assuming some market pressures forcing share price down but not now convinced Thanks for your input !
