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.

Third Special Dividend in 2 years....maybe it is time to start increasing the "normal" dividend at a faster pace.

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 proactiveinvestors.co.uk)

SPO won the VAT appeal case so looks as though £2m + interest will be winging its way to BOTB as well.

Read Stockdale Securities's note on BEST OF THE BEST, out this morning, by visiting hxxps://www.research-tree.com/company/GB00B16S3505 "In mid-February, the group highlighted the strength of its balance sheet with its significant cash reserves. As a result, it held cash that was deemed surplus to the operational requirements of its continuing activities and so it declared a special interim dividend of 19.5p. The shares reacted positively to the announcement, rising from 176p to 219p. The payment was made on 19 March 2016 and the payout represented a yield of 11%, based on the opening price on the day of the announcement...."
