finnCap view:- BOTB has announced an encouraging pre-close H1FY19 trading statement, highlighting “revenues and profit before tax generated tracking ahead of market expectations for the current financial year”. We therefore increase our FY19 PBT forecast by c14% to £1.6m from £1.4m. BOTB’s performance therefore stands out amidst the general malaise affecting companies exposed principally to UK consumer spending. Over the past month BOTB’s share price has fallen c15%, caught up in the aggressive market-wide sell-off, and therefore represents a buying opportunity, in our view.

Anyone know when the next results are due ?
Good interview, remain very happy to hold for the dividend flow, the interview confirms that’s likely to continue.
Paul Scott interviewed BOTB CEO William Hindmarch and kindly published the interesting interview on his site which can be accessed on the below link:- Http://

Here's finnCaps take from Research Tree:- With these better-than-expected FY18 results (PBT £1.6m vs fC est of £1.4m), BoTB has clarified its strategic decision to become solely a pure-play online operator, completing its move away from its legacy physical retail locations. This is a significant moment for the BoTB investment case. We view this decision as a sign that BoTB is unequivocally entering into a distinctive new phase of growth which, in turn, should have important positive long-term implications for sentiment,

Solid set of numbers, continued growth, further dividends and I suspect another special dividend once the tax matter is fully concluded.
Results tomorrow, any shareholders here?
Prelims comfortably ahead, 6.5p special div | finnCap, 8 June "Adj. PBT of £1.5m is 7% ahead of our upgraded expectation and shows 43% y-o-y growth, driven principally through a meaningful improvement in both gross and operating margins. Cash generation meanwhile continued to be very strong with FCF/adj. PAT >100% for the fourth consecutive year. This meant a year-end cash position of £2.1m, of which £0.8m will be distributed to shareholders through an ordinary and special dividend of 1.4p and 6.5p respectively. We upgrade FY18E adj. PBT by 6% (suggesting 8% y-o-y growth) – conservative assumptions we believe, considering that BOTB plans to increase its marketing spend by c.70% to £2m, which if used as effectively as previous years, provides upside risk..."

Hi Paul, Continuing the overseas theme the latest winner seemingly hails from Helsinki. It has been a fantastic investment for me to, tempted to sell out on various occasions but holding on has brought dividends several times my buying price and huge capital appreciation. My only disappointment is that the physical side has not grown as after sitting in a cafe watching punters buy tickets at Westfield Shopping Centre a couple of years ago I thought that this could maybe rolled out to other centres and maybe race meetings etc. I bought a few plays after speaking to the guys at Copenhagen Airport (no longer a physical venue) and agree it is a bit of fun but fortunately my interest is in holding the shares rather than buying the product! Cheers, Jeff

Hi Jeff H - many thanks for the interesting links about overseas winners. The upside could be really exciting, if they can find a way to economically recruit more overseas players. I've been delighted with my investment here, having held for a couple of years now. The special divis have also been fantastic. I really enjoy playing the game myself, online. It's so much more fun than other forms of gambling. Also, getting close most times, and the booby prizes credited to my account, incentivises me to keep playing. A nice little company. Management are great too, I've met the top 2 guys, and they're solid, trustworthy people. Regards, Paul.

Shares in Best of the Best plc (LON:BOTB) revved higher on Friday morning after the firm’s bullish trading update gave investors a flavour of what to expect when it publishes its interim results early next year. The company hailed the “strong trading” for the six months to October, adding that it now expects profit before tax for the period to be ahead of its previous expectations. BotB – which has traditionally conducts most of its business in airports and shopping centres – also said that the proportion of online sales continues to increase. Pleasingly for investors, operating margins improved during the six months, partly bolstered by a lower-than-expected spend on marketing. The company – which runs competitions to win luxury cars online and at retail locations – said revenues for the period were in line with its previous forecasts. City broker finnCap said it would upgrade its forecasts for Best of the Best following management’s revised expectations. finnCap’s Harold Evans said: “Noting this strong first half performance, we reiterate our full-year revenue expectation of £11.2m (suggesting 11% y-o-y growth) but upgrade at the gross profit and EBITDA level.” He added: “Revised estimates therefore point to a strong 2017 [financial year], whereby EBITDA (underlying earnings) is set to grow by 32% to £1.4m. “In keeping the progress being demonstrated this year, we also upgrade our FY18 estimates, suggesting 10% earnings growth, leaving scope for potential outperformance.̶1; Best of the Best’s target price was also moved upwards by the broker to 260p from its previous forecast of 227p. The results for the six months to 31 October are due to be released on 18 January 2017. (from
