Well if it is, and if they are intent on selling their entire holding, this could be range bound for another year. It has taken them a year to reduce from around 20% to 11%.

Hope so. One asks oneself, what do British companies have to do to put more value on their company. This is pure manipulation within this corrupt British market

Hopefully with some exposure/promotion over the weekend word will get out of the great results and future potential of Card Factory, and the share price will pick up in the run up to ex-div date.

Thanks Magnets - that makes sense. Omron it's not M&A, it's the tech/ERP roll-out Magnets said

From Citywire: Liberum analyst Wayne Brown added that a valuation of current year 2024 price to earnings ratio of 7.1 times and embedded value to [pre-tax profits] of 3.6 times remains far too cheap'.

Card Factory boss Darcy Willson-Rymer is gunning for another year of growth as the business looks to expand its product ranges, partnerships, and store estate.

The greetings card retailer today unveiled a 25% jump in pre-tax profits to £65.6m over its last year, which the retail boss says came despite customers still feeling the pinch.

“We’re hearing two main things from customers: the first one is that the financial pinch is still here and they’re still having to make trade-offs on how they spend their money,” he says. “[They are] also telling us that they want to continue to celebrate, those special moments that stand still important to them.”

Willson-Ryman credits its expansion of product ranges for driving growth and plans to ramp that up further in the year ahead.

“We should continue to see new ranges in store,” he says. “We relaunched humour about a month ago and our general range relaunches this month as well as new stationery and new gifting opportunities.”;

“We’ve invested in some regionality – we’re seeing good growth in regional captions. We’re also seeing some expansion in other celebrations so things like Diwali, Eid, and ‘thank you teacher’ are all growing.”

Card Factory’s investment into products is partnered with it reconfiguring shop layouts to cater for the new ranges and “allocating more space to gifted celebration essentials”, which Willson-Rymer said is “gaining traction”.

The greetings card specialist will also continue its store expansion building on its 26 net openings last year as it targets 90 net stores by its 2027 financial year.

Card Factory’s partnerships pay off:
Partnerships are another key growth avenue for Card Factory, with its current agreements contributing £17m in sales.

This includes £10.7m from its acquisition of SA Greetings in South Africa and the rest from a franchise agreement with Liwa Trading Enterprises in the Middle East and its concessions inside Matalan.

Speaking on the Matalan tie-up, Willson-Ryman says: “The partnership’s going well. We’re in all 223 stores and we got all that in before Christmas so really pleased with that.

“We will continue to work with all of our partners to see on how we can continue to optimise our range and continue to get things right for the customer.”

He says that Card Factory is in conversations about further partnerships, but declined to comment whether they would be UK-based or overseas.

Intangible capex likely to be purchased good will on SA acquisition - difference between price paid and fair value of net assets. Not worth getting excited about.

It's very significant that dividend payments have been resumed as announced today, with the last being a special of 5p in Sept. 2019. In fact specials were a regular thing until the pandemic. I've added a DIVIS link top right in the header and the latest dividend amount and dates to the end of the header.

"Capex investment in FY24 of £27.8 million (FY23: £18.2 million) continued to drive positive progress on strategic delivery, including the completion of Phase 2 ERP implementation, our store evolution programme, and online platform development."

Anyone aware of what the intangible capex is going on? That was £9m over the last 2 financial years and is far outpacing its associated amortisation charge, so FCF/profit conversion is not great

Any idea if this is something that brokers expect to continue/shrink?

Without that falling back, that's a material drag on FCF, which was £27m last year, and doesn't look particularly attractive vs. the market cap of £370m+.

Whilst no direct question on Teleios, some clearly implicated them. That is, questions about dividends rather than buy backs. They said they consulted with shareholders and they preferred dividends. Buy backs are a possibility but debt reductions is the priority.

Recommencement of dividends, with a recommended dividend of at 4.5p per share for FY24, in line with our updated Capital Allocation Policy.
