guruofcanada: Seems like I’m not alone in my thoughts, or will you say every analyst that says anything negative must be a “meany sourpuss”! The Boohoo Group (LSE: BOO) share price motored ahead on Wednesday after the firm said pre-tax profit rose by 38% to £59.9m last year. The fast fashion group has been a stunning success for investors — the shares have risen by nearly 400% over the last three years. But can this momentum continue? I’m not so sure. Today I want to explain my view on Boohoo and suggest a FTSE 100 growth stock I’d consider instead. Insider ownership I normally see family ownership of listed businesses as an attraction for stock market investors. As a general rule, I believe that such owners tend to have a long-term, conservative focus that helps to avoid mishaps and provide reliable shareholder returns. Boohoo certainly ticks the boxes here. Co-founders Mahmud Kamani and Carol Kane control more than 20% of the group’s shares. Other members of Mr Kamani’s family appear to own a further 17.1% of BOO stock. However, I’m less keen on the ownership structure of Boohoo’s star brand PrettyLittleThing. Sales at this young fashion brand rose by 107% to £374m last year. This meteoric growth means that PrettyLittleThing now rivals core Brand boohoo, where sales rose by just 16% to £435m. I don’t know why Boohoo is growing so slowly compared to PrettyLittleThing. But I do know that PrettyLittleThing was founded by Umar and Adam Kamani, the sons of Boohoo co-founder Mahmud Kamani. When Boohoo acquired PrettyLittleThing in 2017, it only took a 66% stake. The remaining 34% of PrettyLittleThing is held by other investors, presumably the original founders. Why this matters Boohoo Group’s after-tax profit for 2018/19 was £47.4m. But BOO shareholders are only entitled to £37.7m of this income. The remaining £9.7m goes to outside shareholders in Boohoo’s subsidiaries. I suspect that most of this relates to PrettyLittleThing. What this means is that more than 20% of Boohoo’s profits went to outside investors last year. Earnings for Boohoo shareholders only rose by 19% to 3.22p per share. With the shares trading above 230p, that prices the stock at roughly 70 times earnings. This valuation is too high for me, especially as shareholders aren’t getting the full benefit of strong growth at PrettyLittleThing. I’d avoid the shares at this level.
apad: Some v. large BOO-BUYS exposed late in the day and after hours. I think I'll keep my trading buys a little longer. Pity that BOO's success has rubbed off on SOS as I was looking to increase. Lyttle (Primark man) gets a bonus of £50million if the BOO share price rises to about £6.50 by 2023. So, how can this be achieved? Clearly the two Ks now have much more time to plan for multi-brand growth. I suppose SOS could be a target, but I suspect it isn't for sale. So, I am expecting a new in-house brand, say BOOKIDS. We need patience as the improvements in software and associated systems abroad will take time, as will the warehouse projects. The change in sentiment might well support/increase the share price in the near term, but maybe there needs to be some new news to provide a real stimulus. Anyroadup, the company now has a reputation for being independent from the overall sector sentiment, so I don't see a share price retracement - particularly as growth shares are now back in favour. apad 😇
villarich: Ok so let's take £1bn as the price for 34% of PLT. Let's also assume PLT is contributing 50% of total net profit in FY2021. Using BOO's own forecast model that would mean PLT would be contributing around £50m in net profit in FY 2021 of which BOO already 'owns' £33m of. Having worked on private equity models and helped to value privately owned businesses for one of the big 4 firms in the past, I can guarantee you they would not value £17m net profit per year at £1bn. And it they did, that would suggest they would be valuing the rest of the BOO business at £5bn. Giving us a share price of £4.30.So on one hand you're saying that the PE is too high and the share price is over valued, but on the other you're saying that the value of the 2/3rds PLT that BOO do own has a value equal to the total market cap of the group. Fascinating stuff!
christh: Key results this week Hargreaves Lansdown ----------------------------------- Boohoo - American boost means sales still going strong Nicholas Hyett | 15 January 2019 | A A A Excluding exchange rate effects, Boohoo's fourth quarter revenues rose 43%, reaching £328.2m. Full year revenue growth is now expected to be between 43% and 45%, ahead of previous guidance for 38% to 43% growth. Guidance for full year EBITDA margins has been narrowed to 9.25% and 9.75%, from the 9% to 10%. The shares rose 1.7% in early trading. Our view sells fast fashion aimed at 16 - 30 year olds. And it sells that fashion very cheaply. It's not uncommon to see dresses sell for under £5. While other retailers have been struggling as consumers tighten the purse strings, Boohoo's been growing strongly. An exclusively online presence means the group can stock small quantities of lots of different styles, and ramp up orders of the most popular. This 'test and repeat' model means Boohoo is ideally placed to keep up with the frantic pace of fast fashion. We've also been impressed by the group's acquisitions, of PrettyLittleThing and Nasty Gal. The fact a significant number of these new customers are in the USA opens up a potentially huge market too. While such strong sales have helped profits rise, and should continue to do so in the future, operating margins are unlikely to make significant progress beyond their current 7-8% level. That's partly due to the costs associated with posting out and processing returns on an average order size of just £43.41, but also because costs are rising as Boohoo builds the infrastructure to support future growth. Reinvesting profits back into the business makes sense, but means there's no dividend on offer just yet. There are other challenges too. The retail environment is particularly tough, and recent profit warning from rival online giant, ASOS shows the troubles aren't just on the high street. Boohoo hasn't come down with the same cold, but its lofty rating of 40 times earnings means there's scope for the shares to fall if performance doesn't meet expectations. All-in-all though we think Boohoo has a lot to shout about. There are real pockets of opportunity abroad - even if seizing them is expensive. And while customers want to buy clothes the same price as a meal deal, Boohoo will keep selling them. Trading details --------------------------------------- Revenue across all geographic regions increased, with the biggest improvement coming from the USA, which improved 80% to £70.4m.The UK and European businesses saw a 33% and 54% increase respectively, while Rest of World increased 32%. Sales from the boohoo branded website rose 14% to £163.5m in the quarter. Meanwhile, there was a 96% jump in revenues from PrettyLittleThing, which reached £144.2 million for the quarter and Nasty Gal revenues improved by 76%, reaching £20.6m. Group gross margin for the fourth quarter rose 1.7 percentage points to 54.2%.. Joint CEOs Mahmud Kamani and Carol Kane said the group continues to invest in its "proposition, operations and infrastructure" to capitalise on global growth opportunities. hTtps://
christh: Boohoo shares jump after sales beat forecasts Jonathan Eley September 26, 2018 Boohoo upgraded its predicted sales growth for the full year after revenues for the first half came in ahead of analysts’ forecasts, sending its share price sharply higher. The fast-growing UK online fashion company, which owns PrettyLittleThing and Nasty Gal as well as its eponymous label, said it now expected group sales to grow between 38% and 43 %, up slightly from the previous 35-40 % range. “We’ve had a great first half, with sales up 50% and multiple brands taking market share in multiple geographies,” said Neil Catto, finance director. First-half revenues were £395m, ahead of consensus forecasts for £383m. International revenues are now two-fifths of the total, driven partly by Nasty Gal in the US, where sales more than doubled. Earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation were also slightly ahead of expectations. The growth at PrettyLittleThing was especially notable since the brand transferred operations to a new warehouse in Sheffield during the period. The subsidiary, which is run by Umar Kamani, son of Boohoo founder and joint chief executive Mahmud Kamani, more than doubled its sales. Andrew Ross at Barclays said the results were “reassuring221;, given the market’s fears about group margin and the impact of the warehouse switch. The company appeared well set for the second half, which includes Black Friday and Christmas, he added. Boohoo shares rose almost 9% on Wednesday morning. However, Sherri Malek at RBC said easing back on price promotion to facilitate investment in other areas could backfire. “We are not convinced this strategy is sustainable and believe it could erode the brand’s competitive advantage on price, increasing the risk to revenue growth,” she said, noting that Boohoo trades at a 17% premium to European online retail peers. New Boohoo chief promised £50m in shares for market cap growth Like Asos, Zalando and others, Boohoo is investing heavily in warehouse capacity to support its rapid growth. The new unit in Sheffield and an existing warehouse near Burnley, which is also being expanded, will be able to support about £2.4bn of annual sales. Mr Catto said the company now had “plenty of time” to establish a third unit to take the company to its £3bn capacity target. Managing growth will be the job of John Lyttle, who becomes chief executive next March. He is currently chief operating officer at Primark. Mr Kamani and joint chief executive Carol Kane, who founded Boohoo in 2006, will remain on the board. Mr Lyttle will also oversee relations with suppliers. Many of Boohoo’s products are made in the UK, helping it keep supply chains short and responsive, but some have alleged that its suppliers underpay their staff. Mr Catto said the company had “extremely rigorous audits of suppliers”. He added: “We take these issues very seriously. Audits check all aspects of suppliers operations to ensure that working conditions are up to standard, including financial conditions.” ----------------------------------------------------- Link does not work unless you subscribe
algorithmicx: (BOO LN) Planning for next phase of growth – strengthening of leadership team Boohoo has announced a high level appointment of Primark COO John Lyttle to CEO of Boohoo Group as they position themselves for the next phase of growth. John oversaw Primark’s expansion from £2.7bn to over £7bn which looks comparable to Boohoo’s ambitions. The change will commence in 6 months (15th March) when Mahmud will become Executive Chairman. Non-Exec Chairman Peter Williams, who has been instrumental in this forward looking succession planning, will stand down with a new NED to be announced in due course. Carol remains as an Executive on Board. Today’s announcement is incremental to an already strong management team and does not signify a change in channel focus (i.e. Boohoo remains a digital pureplay), The key thing to note is the new CEO’s package which is heavily weighted to shareholder value creation through a 5-year 'Growth Share Plan'. This relates to the CAGR in market capitalisation. A CAGR of <10% yields nothing and, in the event of 23% CAGR or more, it is capped at £50m. So the market cap would need to be £1.2bn higher after 5 years to get any pay-out at all or by £3.6bn to £5.6bn to get the full pay-out. This news ties in well with our view that growth potential for the group is significant and has the potential to reaccelerate in both the original Boohoo brand, and especially in PLT after the recent DC move. Buy CEO Appointment & board changes boohoo Group has this morning announced the appointment of John Lyttle as Group CEO (effective 15th March 2019) and the re-alignment of its wider executive board as it positions itself for the next stage of growth. John is currently the COO of Primark, one of Europe’s fastest growing and most profitable retail businesses, a role he has been in for eight years. His appointment brings complementary operational experience to boohoo’s senior management team as it focuses on rolling out the infrastructure and technology needed to realise its ambitions of reaching £3bn in annual sales. Joint co-founders Mahmud Kamani and Carol Kane will remain close to the businesses, moving to Group Executive Chairman and Group Co-Founder and Executive Director respectively, with a focus on driving the longer-term strategy and creative vision for the enlarged Group. Current Non-executive Chairman Peter Williams will step down from his role next March with a replacement NED role to be announced in due course. Interim Results will be announced on 26th September, and the shares trade on 44.3x FY19 PE based on Friday’s close. Strong track record: John brings significant experience in fast-growing retail business to the boohoo Group. During his eight-year tenure as Primark’s COO, turnover grew by 158% to more than £7bn with operating profit 116% higher at £735m (FY2017). He has also held senior roles at retailers Matalan and the Arcadia Group. We believe John’s operational experience will be highly complementary to the existing executive team, with his proven ability to deliver in a fast-growing retail business.  Strongly aligned management incentives: John’s remuneration package is weighted heavily towards creating shareholder value. Alongside basic pay of £615k it includes a performance related annual bonus of up to 150% salary and a Growth Share Plan based on achieving a five year share price CAGR of at least 10% - i.e. a 5 year CAGR of less than 10% yields nil value.  Board re-alignment: Today’s announcement also details further changes to the Group’s board. Mahmud Kamani will become Group Executive Chairman where he will focus on the long-term strategic direction of the business. Carol Kane will assume the title of Group Co-Founder and Executive Director and will continue to lead the creative vision and market positioning of the Group’s brands. Both remain committed to the group and to ensuring a smooth handover. Current Non-Executive Chairman Peter Williams will step down from his role, with the board commencing the search to recruit an additional NED.  Valuation and outlook: We believe today’s announced leadership changes is hugely positive for the business and will support the management team’s ambitions of growing the boohoo Group into a £3bn turnover business. It’s multibranded,e-commerce proposition is well placed to capitalise on the on-going shift to online. Based on Friday’s close price boohoo trades on an FY19 P/E of 44.3x falling to 35.7x in FY20.
christh: Can Boohoo.Com PLC become a £5 billion stock? August 21, 2018 Robert Stephens Boohoo (LON:BOO) In the last five years the Boohoo.Com PLC (LON:BOO) (BOO.L) share price has risen from around 70p to its current level of 190p. That’s a capital gain of 171% in what is a relatively short time period, and shows that the company’s high sales and profit growth has been rewarded through a higher valuation. In my view, there could be further growth ahead for the business. I feel that it has a solid strategy which could lead to improving financial performance over the medium term. It has been able to integrate new sites into its portfolio, which shows that it is a relatively adaptable business in my opinion. Further diversification of its operations could be ahead, since it has been able to access a wider demographic of customer in recent quarters. Alongside this, the company’s organic growth potential seems to be high. This has the potential to boost its overall performance and could mean that the Boohoo share price is able to demand a higher valuation over the medium term. With the company now having a market capitalisation of around £2.2 billion following its share price rise over recent years, I think that it could still be undervalued. It has a PEG ratio of 1.9, while its investment in capacity could mean that the progress towards higher sales and profitability is relatively smooth. Since Boohoo has exposure to a number of different geographies across the world, it may be able to perform well in spite of the UK’s economic slowdown. Therefore, I feel that it could offer less risk than many of its sector peers, which may help it to generate further growth. A £5 billion market capitalisation would require a capital gain of around 127% from its current level. Given its potential to generate double-digit EPS growth, I feel that this is a realistic target. But it may take a number of years to reach it. hTtps://
toffeeman: Asos has a market cap of about £5.75bn Boo is currently valued at £2bn so to have the same value as ASC the Boo share price would be £5.
thorpyuk: Yep.. take a look at ASOS share price post-update. Their update was on the 25th Jan, and they posted a forecast-beating result. When that happens, rather than selling straight away, institutions will hold for a week or so afterwards, and THEN sell, so that they can ride the wave. The share price went up from £68.75 before results, to £74.70, held for another few days, and then dropped back to £68.60 yesterday - virtually the same as before the results despite beating forecast. Of course, over time, it does stick, and a good-performing company will grow over the course of the year with updated financials etc. That's why, sometimes on results day the share price drops back despite good results being issued, and people say "why has the share price fallen"? Take Boohoo's recent results - they were fantastic, but they were also in-line with what people expected to see, hence they dropped back. But in the weeks before the update look what happened.... 7th Dec the share price dropped like a stone- it lost 11p in a day down to £1.67... some private investors were panicking and selling, stop-losses were being triggered, but for what reason? Was the business broken? Was there a problem? Was the some terrible news? No, not at all! Institutions must have been rubbing their hands that they could buy into Boohoo so cheaply! What subsequently happened? Over the next 4 weeks before the Jan update, the share price went up 50p per share to £2.17 at it's peak... it'll do the same soon, but on a much bigger scale. On the 12th June this year, before the Q1 trading update for the new year, the share price will be in a different place altogether.
nickg100: Tend to agree with Cinob that it's surprising, disappointing and frustrating to see Boo at such a low share price when comparing to ASOS. NEXT and other recent retail winners.Discussion and deliberation over the P/E ratio would suggest, to some at least, it's arguably a touch too high!? For a high growth company such as Boo I personally believe not. Naturally P/E ratio numbers tell different stories to different companies. Compare Boo to Wizz Air (for example) on PE Ratio, both high growth companies, and Boo share price reads as a 'give away stock" with Wizz PE closer to 1,000 than Boo is to 100!!Timing is everything and agree the Directors have their work cut out to get new and existing share holders truly on side in view of recent events. The share price is far from reflective of the company performance and should comfortably be trading closer to £3 than the current sub £2 close!All IMHO of course. DYOR ...etc
