I do some work for Compass and they are starting to stir back to life. Army camps they look after are hoping to get back open early June. Compass will bounce straight back. Money making machine and well run.

As I mentioned on the other CPG board late last year the rating looked full given a cyclical element to the business. Many a moon before this gets anywhere near £20 again. Had a very small amount.

Well at least the capital raise price should put a floor under this. What about £10 - a nice round figure? Suet

Used Primary Bid for the first time. Not difficult and shares should be allocated to my ISA with II. Only applied for a few but I see this as a long term holding and who knows where it might be in 6 to 9 months. Suet

Thankfully sold my shares yesterday. EPS forecast for this year is 36p, obviously because of Covid-19. Question is how quickly that bounces back and how close to where it might have been. Obviously c.10% increased share count won't help. Will keep on my watch list however I 'm not sure that the historic 20x PE will be seen again - thats a punchy multiple in the UK. Perhaps it gets back to 60p EPS next year, growing to 75p-80 over 3 years....and 15x PE? 900p share price in the near-term and 1200p mid term?

The first wave hit this hard as the chart shows Who would bet on there mot being a second wave Or a third wave Or even more waves till a successful vaccine was found and given to all round the world Covid-19 is here to stay till that happens or over 50% of the world population has had it and acquired some immunity At this stage even that is in some doubt IMO dyor

Compass : Plans to Raise GBP2.0 Billion to Strengthen Balance Sheet, Liquidity share with twitter share with LinkedIn share with facebook share via e-mail 0 05/19/2020 | 07:38am BST By Ian Walker Compass Group PLC said Tuesday that it is seeking to raise 2 billion pounds ($2.42 billion) via an equity issue to strengthen its balance sheet and liquidity position during the coronavirus pandemic. The U.K. catering contractor said that the money will be raised via a share placing under a bookbuild program, subscription and retail offer. The number of shares to be issued and the price will be announced once books close. It said directors and members of the senior management team have agreed to subscribe for up to GBP1.1 million of new ordinary shares, the company said. Last month Compass said it won't recommend an interim or final dividend for fiscal 2020, and that its chief executive has temporarily reduced his salary by 30%, both due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Dividend We recognise the importance of a dividend to our shareholders. However, we need to balance this with the exceptional circumstances that the COVID-19 pandemic represents. As a result, as previously reported on 23 April, the Board has decided not to recommend an interim or a final dividend for the year ending 30 September 2020. The Board will keep future dividends under review and will restart payments when it is appropriate to do so. Summary and outlook The COVID-19 pandemic has had a profound impact on Compass. We can only exist with the commitment of our colleagues around the world, many of whom have been on the front line of the battle against the pandemic. I am extremely proud of how the organisation has responded, and I'm humbled by the commitment and dedication our people are showing, day in day out. I want to extend my deepest sympathies to the families of those colleagues that have lost their lives to COVID-19. Since the beginning of the crisis, keeping our colleagues safe has been our overriding focus. Colleague and consumer safety will continue to guide everything we do as we move towards reopening more units over the months ahead. The first five months covered by the results we are announcing today showed a continuation of the strong performance we reported last year, but it goes without saying that COVID-19 has changed everything. Compass is a resilient and adaptable organisation and we have moved quickly to manage cash and costs and increase liquidity. We are doing all we can to protect jobs by redeploying colleagues into units that remain open and using government job retention schemes where available. The duration of the pandemic, and the pace at which containment measures are relaxed in different countries is unknown, which makes it a challenge to reliably assess the impact across our markets and our business. We are therefore withdrawing our previous growth and margin outlook for 2020. We remain, however, excited about the significant structural market opportunity globally and the potential for further organic revenue growth, margin improvement and returns to shareholders over time. Given the uncertainty in the short term outlook, today we have launched a GBP2 billion equity raise to reduce leverage and increase our liquidity. The management actions we have taken, coupled with the strengthened balance sheet will allow us to weather the crisis whilst continuing to invest in the business to enhance our competitive advantages, support our long term growth prospects and further consolidate our position as the industry leader in food services. Although there are significant short term challenges, I firmly believe that Compass is now well-placed to succeed in a post COVID-19 world. The strengths which have delivered Compass success in the past are the same ones which will deliver success in the future. Our scale and focus on execution, our emphasis on trust and safety, and our financial resilience will put us in a strong position for the recovery and will allow us to generate sustainable long term value for all of our stakeholders.

Looks like a capital raise then. I'd be for it - strengthen the balance sheet and hoover up some distressed rivals at knockdown prices. Suet

Since when has CPG been immune from wider macro concerns. There is a significant cyclical element here and that's always been the case.

PROACTIVEINVESTORS Giulia Bottaro 10:23 Wed 27 Nov 2019 viewCompass Group Compass numbers point to flat returns, says Liberum The broker downgraded its recommendation for the FTSE 100 catering giant to 'hold' on the back of the latest results Compass Group - Liberum downgrades Compass to ‘hold’ Compass is cutting costs Compass Group PLC (LON:CPG) shares continued to head south a day after the catering giant's annual results as analysts said a new round of cost cutting have negative implications for investor returns over the medium-term. The results revealed that the FTSE 100 group's diversity in geographies and divisions “does not make it immune to the macro environment”, said broker Liberum, downgrading its recommendation to ‘hold’ from ‘buy’ and cutting the target price to 2,000p from 2,240p. READ: Compass profits undercooked as its moves to counter European slowdown The cost-cutting will offset short-term margin pressures but will incur “substantial” cash costs which, paired with recent acquisitions, imply “no scope for further cash returns to shareholders”, Liberum's analysts said in a note to clients on Wednesday. Compass said in its preliminary results a day earlier that it is “taking prompt action to adjust our cost base” in Europe and certain other markets outside the US, resulting in non-underlying cash charges of around £160mln spread across the past and the new financial year, plus a non-cash charge of £140mln. Statutory operating profit fell 5.4% to £1.6bn and revenue swelled 6.4% to £25.2bn. Liberum revised group organic growth forecast down to 5% and 2020 forecasts are now expected to be flat year-on-year, as the strong pipeline in North America meets caution over volume and performance in Europe. Shares in the company, having risen to an all-time high in the summer and up 27% since the start of the year until the results, were down 3% to 1,866.5p on Wednesday morning.
