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.
mcartdon: Second quarter 2021 revenues up 54% to $1.32 billion hasbro, mattel up 44% looks good for character, dollar rising again, share buy back.
glavey: Good, CCT board chillin' and buy-back kicked down the road a while. There may be other opportunities in the meantime.
mcartdon: 10000 share trades as regular as can be , appear to be sells but who can be sure, certainly if they are they are stopping a surge up higher but better the regular rise we have been enjoying. a gentle re assessment of the company value. share buy backs have been in October before, we don't get much news through the summer. where is the dividend return we are missing, Time for a special dividend to make up.
deanowls: Great minds and all that. Upgs with a presentation on Tuesday also. Doubt they would be doing it if it’s bad news. I expect two quid. Sorry for the off topic guys, it is hard to sometimes get the comparable to CCT to garner a read across sector wise.
thorpematt: deanowls, During my morning bike ride (just got back) I was thinking EXACTLY the same thing regarding UPGS, TND, CCT. As you say there are similarities and my mind did ponder this. Looking at the (small) number of employees for each company, we can also apreciate that management and personnel are very important to these particular business models. Whilst I do "get" the references to bonus structure. We must as shareholders be fair to those that create the wealth. I have no problem with good bonus and salaries PROVIDED the REAL performance of the company warrants it. With TND, UPGS and CCT I think the performace has been pretty darn good of late.
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.
simso: I think it is that the Stock Market always hates uncertainty above all else, and two recent events have caused uncertainty at CCT. The first was the sudden departure of the FD. I am working on the assumption that this was for personal reasons, and read somewhere that he just went awol for almost two weeks, leaving the Board with no choice. The second is obviously the ToysRUs. I understand that the part of ToysRus which went into Chapter 11 in North America made up less than 3% of CCT Sales. Also I understand a huge Debtor Financing Facility for TRU is in place for them to continue...and am sure they are having to use this to pay all Creditors (like CCT) up to date and on faster terms in order to secure their ongoing supply. The bigger risk comes if the worldwide TRU becomes infected by the Chapter 11, and suppliers struggle to get Credit Insurance. Greater clarity on the TRU situation would help sentiment and the CCT share price This has all masked the fact that second half of Y/E Aug 17 was a PBT of somewhere around £6.5m...which is far better than any second half in CCT's history, and augers well for the year ahead.
