snookered4: Having a lot of debt is not a problem while interest rates are low! Just ask Rishi Sunak. Inevitably, interest rates will rise but not until the economy is showing signs of positivity which won’t be until late 2022 in my opinion. So I am happy to hold CPI and add if Mr Market decides to hammer this company’s share price for no good reason.
exile: The fundementals here do not suggest the current share price imo.... 100% gain short term ? Edit: To clarify the question from current share price ???
oharebj: Interesting to look at people's comments. We had quite a positive statement from CPI that took the share price from the high 20's to nearly 40. The sale of the Educational Software arm is pending. Worst price scenario for the the value of the ES arm is probably £350 - 400 million. They were holding out for more but didn't get it. That will reduce net debt to £550-600 million. Profits are over £400 million. The index has risen rapidly over the last week. The FTSE lags all other indices by 15%, held back by Brexit uncertainty.There is, apparently, an 80 % certainty of a deal next week - reported by a Bank of England official.If that happens, there will be a significant jump in the FTSE.If the Educational Software arm sells, that will be a positive.Hard to see, if the ducks line up, how this won't be worth over £1 in the next few months.
hodhasharon: ? Capita PLC Share Price vs. Fair Value 287.5% Overvalued Current Price UK£0.39 Fair Value UK£0.10 Debt Level: CPI has negative shareholder equity, which is a more serious situation than a high debt level. Reducing Debt: CPI's has negative shareholder equity, so we do not need to check if its debt has reduced over time.
owlbaby: eatstocks - I am a LTH with interest in understanding the financial dynamic of the business because performance has flunked so badly. I inherited the holding from the estate of close family member & held out of sentimentality without enquiring much into what was going on before the crash from 160p - 30p. The rise from 24p to 35p reduces on an average price of 41p bought at HE when the share price seemed to have lifted out of the 30s & does make me happier for that at least. Before June the share price bounced between 30s to 40s allowing some plays. It is worth knowing how the crash came about to know what may happen rather than relying on hope. I can see with hindsight that I held at 160p effectively on hope and ignored comments I didn't like, you might call them deramping, such as Pal44's comments saying the share price would go to 35p. It would have been better to get into the figures properly & perhaps consider some of the less comforting things, like whether this management team are out of their depth or whether their plan is viable & what scale of numbers are needed. I wish you, the other guys here & Pal44 (who is down to 20p now) GL. Lets have an effective discussion group so please take my comments in that respect, its not slagging to bring the share price down for personal gain. I have numbers written out & comment here as seems relevant, although its hard to conceal being so disappointed that CPI is under achieving & even eg behind G4S. KR
feelthepain: HodHasharon in the words of the BBC regarding the US election. Please stop making unsubstantiated claims about the CPI share price. It is of no use to anyone to keep claiming the price is going to 50p
owlbaby: The fire & rescue contract was said to be worth £525m over 12 years when it was announced in July 2019 & added to the confidence that lifted the share price from 100p to 160p before the YE announcement brought the share price down that morning & next day to where we are now. The latest announcement is for training of the first batch of 25 fire fighters from army & defence (no figures given) & building of the training facility costing £5m (presumably backed by revenue). CPI have also previously announced providing 128 fire fighting trucks bought with two different types of capability from specialist manufacturer (no figures given nor indication of value CPI add to the vehicles).

jaspoland: Dealy, I've spent some time looking at your posts on CPI. You seem very disappointed/frustrated that the share price is where it is. I will ask you one question is the reason why you invested in CPI still valid? If so continue to hold/buy. If the reasons are no longer valid then sell. It is simple. There are many other companies that you can invest in that will likely increase. I've only just taken a position in CPI a few days ago but I'm very familiar with the work they do. I see opportunities which may take years to turnaround but I'm prepared to wait. Is CPI worth more than 29p? I think so hence why I'm here. Good luck with what you decide
captain kod: Lol! All these bits of good news are starting to come out and the share price is flying - not! I'm going to turn my monitor upside down that will make the share price graph look better! ;-)
big_brown_bare: Exclusive: Private equity giants mount first-round bids for Capita ESS Two private equity behemoths are expected to today table preliminary offers for London-listed Capita's Education Software Solutions (ESS) division as bankers collect first-round bids from a host of suitors, EducationInvestor Global can reveal.This publication has learnt that Bain Capital and TPG Capital are among several bidders vying over control of Capita ESS – whose SIMS platform is the UK's largest school management information system (MIS) provider – which is expected to fetch upwards of £500 million.The values of the offers being placed by Bain and TPG are unclear.According to multiple sources, bankers at Goldman Sachs, which is marshalling the sale of Capita ESS, set today, 1 September, as the deadline for first-round bids.One insider said that Montagu Private Equity, a European buyout house which in March acquired a stake in university operator Galileo Global Education, had been "very keen" on Capita ESS – though it was unclear whether it would also be mounting a bid.Another source said that "I would be surprised if more than three or four bidders make it into the second round" – suggesting stiff competition among a small number of suitors could ensue. An insider said that TPG had hired advisors in August to help it formulate a bid. Bain is expected to draft in advisors next week, if it progresses into the second round, a source said.A spokesperson for Bain declined to comment. TPG and Goldman Sachs had not responded to requests for comment at the time of publication.This publication exclusively revealed in June that Capita – whose share price is down more than 80% year-to-date – had launched an auction of Capita ESS, which generates EBITDA of around £50 million a year and is widely considered to be one of its parent's most cash-generative assets.A sale of Capita ESS would provide a liquidity boost to Capita, which sources have suggested could be struggling to service its debt amid a crisis that has rocked corporations of varying ilk and caused cash crunches across practically every industry. When Capita publicly confirmed EducationInvestor Global's report, its share price climbed more than 15%.A bid by California-headquartered TPG for Capita ESS signals a desire to step back into the education sector, which it exited in late 2018 when it broke apart Times Higher Education and TES Global, selling the former to Inflexion Private Equity and the latter to Providence Equity Partners.Boston-based Bain, which oversees more than $100 billion of assets, owns Only About Children, an Australian childcare provider, and Penn Foster, a for-profit college in Pennsylvania, which it acquired from Vistria Group around two years ago.Capita SIMS, which stands for school information management system, is a back-end service developed in the early 1980s that allows schools to collect and monitor data on student attainment, parental engagement and financial management. It lists more than 50 products on its website.Demand for school software solutions in the UK has grown in line with the increasing prevalence of multi-academy trusts (MATs), which require centralised systems to keep tabs on as many as several dozen schools' finances and operations.
