The only thing I could see were some weasel words about future risks, but nothing to frighten the horses.
Business the telegraph Compass shares dip despite profit boost 0 Compass, caterer to the Wimbledon tennis tournament, said profits climbed 23pc last year Jack Torrance Rhiannon Bury 21 November 2017 • 2:25pm Contract catering giant Compass Group was among the sharpest fallers in the FTSE 100 on Tuesday morning, despite posting a double-digit rise in profits. Pre-tax profits climbed 23pc to £1.6bn and revenues ticked up 15.1pc to £22.6bn in the year to September, after strong growth in its North American market. But its shares opened down 5pc. Chief executive Richard Cousins said Compass had “another strong year” in which it returned £1.6bn to shareholders. He said: "Our expectations for 2018 are positive, with growth and margin improvement weighted to the second half. The pipeline of new contracts is encouraging and our focus on organic growth, efficiencies and cash gives us confidence in achieving another year of progress." Compass’s organic revenues climbed 7.1pc in North America, but just 1.6pc in Europe. But they fell 2.5pc in the rest of the world, dragged down by declines in the company’s offshore and remote business, which has been hit by cutbacks in the oil industry. The company supplies catering services to workplaces and events as diverse as oil rigs, Wimbledon tennis championships and school canteens. Mr Cousins, who has been chief executive since 2006, will leave in March. He will be replaced by Dominic Blakemore, Compass’s chief operating officer for Europe. Mr Cousins said that he did not expect Mr Blakemore to radically change the company's strategy next year. "It's hard work to keep the oil tanker chugging in the right direction and that's our main focus," he said. The firm has reduced the number of countries it operates in from 98 to 50 over the past two decades in order to focus more on high value contracts. Mr Cousins said the key challenges for the business were tackling wage inflation, and making sure its margins were improving. Compass shares were down 3.2pc at £15.40 in morning trading.
the grumpy old men
DF, it was more like 5% drop at one stage. No more than the usual sell on news I would think. Results were excellent, divi increased & all very positive, so its a buy opt in my book. Expect to be back to 1600 before long. Santa rally & ex divi for 22.3p in January could see 1700 again.
Decent results and the price falls by 3%. What spooked them?
Why is the market spooked by today's results. Is it the Risk analysis?
Nice purchase by the chairman - 10000 shares. Suet
I'm just in - and took another few this am. Suet
Special dividend and share consolidation.
bill hunt
my guess revenue growth will be less than 3% and market will sell it off...
Time to buy. CPG will cut costs to match any shortfall. They have the advantage in bulk buying Linhur
Compass Group (CPG) potential upcoming earnings-numbers surprise

Read Panmure Gordon & Co's note on COMPASS GROUP PLC (CPG), out this morning, by visiting hxxps:// "Compass has released a solid trading for the first half of the year with Organic revenue growth of 5.8% (similar run rate to 2015 and Q1) driven by new business and good retention rates. Like for Like was positive, reflecting modest pricing and some volume improvement. However, reported margin was down - 10bps due to the previously announced restructuring costs with underlying margin flat; however, this should recover in 2H. Outlook remains ‘positive and unchanged’ and we do not expect to make any significant changes to our ..."
Culture of eating out is getting greater by the years. Taken the opportunity of an ISA top up.
LONDON--Catering company Compass Group PLC (CPG.LN) said Monday that it is having a strong first half, with organic revenue growth of around 5.5%, and added that expectations for the full year remain positive. The British support services company said it is seeing good levels of new business, high retention rates, and modest like-for-like revenue growth. It is expecting exchange rate movements to have a positive translation impact on first half revenue and profit of 35 million pounds ($52.04 million) and GBP5 million, respectively. The company said that foreign exchange translation will also benefit full year revenue by GBP323 million and profits by GBP31 million, if current spot rates continue for the remainder of the year. Compass will publish its results for the half year to March 31 on May 13. Write to Tapan Panchal at
GS downgrade to Sell I am out been a great run
The options provided gave the same amount of cash. The first option was giving it back as capital, the second as a dividend. Shareholders were being given the opportunity to choose depending on their own tax position. That obviously doesn't apply if the shares are held in an ISA or a SIPP. Whichever option is chosen, after the consolidation there will be a re-basing of each shareholder's cost price to allow for the consolidation. IMHO, flatoutfred, DeanForester is probably correct. You may have taken a short-sighted day-by-day view of your daughter's long term financial wellbeing, especially as she (you) would have had a significant cash sum (pro rata, depending on the size of her holding) to invest in another share, or even to re-invest in CPG.
The bit about the C-shares is Round Objects. There is no 10% deducted, instead a Tax Credit of 1/9th comes with the 56p dividend paid from them. This is purely nominal and satisfies any liability to income tax of a basic rate tax payer. It cannot be reclaimed, and higher rate taxpayers will be able to use that Tax Credit to offset part of their tax liability. The whole point of the consolidation is to avoid a drop in the share price. You may have noticed that the share price of Compass has been rising, see top right. That means that the calculations made when they announced the Return of Capital/Special Dividend are now out of date. The share price may well rise after consolidation.
OK, never mind, I'm more canny with my daughters stuff so I got out as she would have been around £280 worse off and I didn't fancy sweating it out till the 28th. Had it been my own I might have stayed in. Good Luck all, I've been burned with consolidations before so happier to be out.
Think it's 7th July which is the actual date of the consolidation as per the last RNS: Record Time for entitlement to B Shares 6.00 p.m. on Monday and/or C Shares and for the Share Consolidation. 7 July 2014 Share register of Existing Ordinary Shares closed and Existing Ordinary Shares disabled in CREST.
Am I correct in saying that the Ex-Dividend date for the 56p dividend is 05/07/2014 ?
