"Synergies"... isn't that a swear word when used as a reason to buy another business?

Tried to listen to the interview a couple of times, but keep getting interupted. I won't comment until I do, but I really don't like that last line in the previous post.

Nor the line "Looking to take the "very" off "very conservative""

I want the old Chesnara back :-(

I'd love to go for a coffee with Dave, I could learn so much!

Very good interview. Everything points to a transformational deal in the offing. -----£100m immediately available
-£100m revolver and £50m accordion for bridging
-Looking to take the "very" off "very conservative"
-Would consider raising equity
-Would consider partnership acquisitions and consider themselves a good candidate for this as they don't compete directly with many of the other players
-traditional deals at discount to EV may not be available but they can easily see valuing at EV or a premium then delivering on synergies, real returns, risk release, etc

I think it went ex-div today, about 8.12p interim.

Looking at the chart, it's possible the trading range here might have moved up a notch or two. Not that I indulge in that myself, just sticking with it.

The Times "Tempus" - BUY

Interim dividend covered more than 1.5 times by cash generation.

Tick for that Mister. This is not one for those seeking stellar capital returns, but for reliable y-o-y dividend income, it does the business. And I don't miss a moment's sleep.

Yes just holding in my long-term portfolio for the near 8% in annual dividends. 18 years of dividend growth not to be sniffed at.

It's a safe haven in a stormy market with a good yield and should benefit from rising interest rates. It's just so illiquid that any small trade affects the price. Buy at 280p sell at 320p or just hold long term for the divi

Management seems focused on M&A deals and has neglected the day to day requirement to make a profit from operations.

Despite the drum beating in the summary I'm not convinced these results are all that great, and the share price might suffer after the recent rally. Hope I'm wrong!

Half year report out...



Some highlights:-

ACQUISITION MOMENTUM, CASH GENERATION AND STRONG SOLVENCY SUPPORT 3% GROWTH IN INTERIM DIVID

Chesnara reports its 2022 half year results. Key highlights are:

-- Completion of the Sanlam Life & Pensions and Robein Leven transactions
-- Proposed acquisition of Conservatrix's insurance portfolio in the Netherlands
-- Positive divisional commercial cash generation of GBP18.6m
-- Strong solvency of 195%, above usual 140-160% operating range
-- Economic value ("EcV") of GBP526.7m (351p per share)
-- 3% increase to the interim dividend to 8.12p per share
Commenting on the results, Steve Murray, Group CEO, said:

"The two acquisitions we completed in April and the recently announced acquisition of Conservatrix's insurance portfolio in July show we have real momentum behind our acquisition strategy. The wider business has performed robustly despite the high level of market volatility. We retain a strong and resilient solvency position with substantial cash balances at the holding company level, supporting our continued track record of growing our dividend. We remain optimistic about our ability to participate in future M&A and continue to be highly confident in our ability to finance and execute such transactions on attractive terms for both vendors and our shareholders."

Only as an inflation and risk diversifier to top-up my defined benefit scheme. I have enough in shares and cash!

topvest - you are surely not considering buying an annuity ?

My guess this move is related to Phoenix's (PHNX) recent well-received results and the hope is CSN's results will be similarly good.

Yes Aleman - agreed - 10 year gilts are up 0.33% in the week. The markets are starting to price in sticky inflation, but could be a long way to go. I am watching annuity rates as I have part of my early-retirment pension to crystallise. I am happy to defer at this stage and wait for the market to come to me!

On the death rates, there has been some coverage of death rates increasing because of the very hot weather, so possibly a very short-term effect.

Anyway, Chesnara is a nice investment. Very pleased to have doubled-up a few months ago. A long-term hold for me.

Given the share price rise over the course of August I take it the results on the 31st will be decent, however, I've just sold a chunk of my CSN holding to buy into LGEN as their div yields finally converged. I think LGEN has a better shot at growing their div at 5%+ whereas CSN will likely stick to their 3% average. Now I've sold a chunk watch these get taken out - haha

Another big jump in Gilts yields today - about 0.1% across all maturities. Shares up again so a correlation looking a bit stronger, perhaps?
