km18: Character Group plc posted interims last week, against a backdrop of challenging operational conditions, the Group delivered a very solid result first half result. The Group's income in the period was £90.9m, an increase of 22% over the same six months in 2021 (HY 2021: £74.5m). The profit before tax and highlighted items was £6.5m, an increase of 7.7% over the same period in the previous year (HY 2021: £6.1m). At the end of the period, cash at bank was £21.5m after a share buyback of c.£13.6m. Business is rebounding to pre-COVID levels and remains profitable. Valuation is reasonable with forward PE ratio around 13.2x, the balance sheet has ample cash, negative net debt, dividend yield is average. Share price has been trading sideways for 12 months. Certainly a share worth monitoring for now, but no rush to buy here... ...from WealthOracleAM
capercaillie: Not sure what take up there will be with the tender offer as the share price is currently in line?
h1a3: Like the results. I think CCT should send a box of Peppa Pig toys to No 10 as Boris is their new top salesman!
sphere25: Despite the very cautious statement, interestingly the market has given a smaller company the benefit of the doubt here so perhaps a sign of some green shoots here? "Whilst it is not possible to predict when the global logistics issues will be fully resolved, the Group is well placed to satisfy anticipated demand in its markets. The Board believes that margins will be under pressure due to high freight rates and increased materials and labour costs, however, it is satisfied that the Group remains on target to meet current market expectations." CCT warned earlier about these issues on the 15th September so no significant deterioration here. The market reaction here seems to suggest it might be looking through these issues because that is a very cautious statement that would normally drive more concern. Looking out in the wider market, it is almost a given these supply chain warnings will continue, but I just wonder if this kind of move in CCT will eventually play out with others. You get the plunge down, the bearishness and doubt. You then some stability and more confidence that the issues will pass as the market looks further out into 2022 and a gradual recovery back up. CCT might not be the best example but keeping an eye open for more green shoots in the new year. All imo DYOR
mcartdon: Yes but they just sit on it and loose 5-7% inflation each year 35m is 3 years profit and 130 p a share
gnome3: I think the assumption is that the Tender Offer will be above the market price.
mcartdon: Historically they announced a buyback and then offered to buy a set amount of shares at a price,10- 15% above the level that day, and raised it when few responded. until met.
glavey: Good, CCT board chillin' and buy-back kicked down the road a while. There may be other opportunities in the meantime.
stpalm: Buybacks are in my opinion the worst way to return capital to shareholders. There are exceptions but Ideally at a low share price. BOD love them because they increase EPS to justify their as gdjs says egregious bonuses!
thorpematt: A comparison of outlooks from the results statement for the last 2 years is interesting:- OUTLOOK 2019 dec The challenging trading in prospect for Christmas 2019 will affect the first half of our current financial year. By contrast, the prospects for the second half look positive. OUTLOOK 2020 Dec. "Trading in the lead up to Christmas 2020, despite the second UK lockdown, has been significantly ahead of the previous year's sales. Sales in Q1 are up by more than 30% over the same period last year and the prospects for the current financial year are looking extremely positive." "We expect FY 2021 to be the beneficiary of the deferral of the strong trading that we originally anticipated. Whilst we will continue to monitor the position, it is apparent that the Group is ahead of management expectations for the first half to February 2021 and market expectations for the financial year as a whole." -------------- In mid January of 2020 the AGM report gave rise to a profit warning and kicked a pre-covid decline into play for the share price. I expect another TS at the AGM date in January 2021 to be more upbeat. ---------- Historically CCTs shareholder value is less top line growth and more about shrinking shares in issue and rising dividend. The cash pile is more than healthy at present and I suspect a return to generous divis is likely. Looking at valuation, its hard to argue that an EV of circa £75m versus potential profits before tax of £11m and more, does not reprresent value. CCTs earnings have been choppy of late but the discount here still seems large given the positive trading statements of late.
