Seems to me new ceo was brought in to expand this. Would be good to hear some update from company. Comptoir Group Plc (AIM: COM), the owner and/or operator of Lebanese and Eastern Mediterranean restaurants, is pleased to announce the appointment of Nick Ayerst as Chief Executive Officer, effective from 17 October 2022.Mr Ayerst brings more than 30 years' experience in the hospitality industry and was previously Managing Director of LEON, the UK's leading healthy fast-food chain, where he was brought onboard in 2020 to re-structure LEON's operational model, investing in technology and increasing efficiencies and to develop growth strategies including LEON's Drive-Thru model and franchising partnerships.Prior to his role at LEON, Mr Ayerst spent 15 years in leadership roles at The Restaurant Group, the UK's largest listed restaurant company, where he was a member of the TRG Executive team. Between 2013 and 2020, Mr Ayerst was Managing Director of TRG Concessions, which operates restaurants, bars and QSR outlets in airports, stations, shopping centres and Hilton Hotels, where he implemented short- and long-term growth opportunities, more than doubling revenue and profit, and oversaw the opening of 45 new sites.

COM BACK OVER 11.50P

anyone know why this thing has tanked so much since IPO?? is it because of the constantly increasing share count/dilution or is it the UK restaurant industry as a whole (with RTN displaying a very similar chart to that of COM)

Smoke and mirrors-
Adjusted EBITDA* before highlighted items of £2.0m up by 11.1% (H1 2018: £1.8m).

Claims profitable after the accountants have massaged/ sorry mean adjusted/ but on basic accounting horribly loss making - IFSR16 makes accounts (imo) very foggy and too much subject to judgement rather than fact.



Could this be another restaurant group possibly likely to go the way to money heaven?

I know the business and they are not in the same price bracket as Wild Honey, Ottolenghi etc, nor are they the same business model. The point of Comptoir is that it's an affordable, modern, scaleable business with an offering at a keen price-point, capable of being expanded into a decent-sized chain. Taking the Wigmore St branch as the example, the 'starter' type mezze are priced generally at £4.50-£6, the mains mostly under £10 (and quite substantial servings), soft drinks from £2, 175ml glass of wine from £4.50. And 23-25 branches so far.

Wild Honey is by contrast a Mayfair restaurant. À la carte menu starters from £11 to £16. Mains mostly £28-30, wine (only 125ml!!!) by the glass at up to £13.

Honey & Co, which the last poster might have meant, is starters at £7.50, mains at £15.50 (bit much for some roasted aubergine with rice), 125ml wine from £6 to £9.50. Still a fair bit dearer than COM. Ottolenghi also: hot main course £21.75, etc etc. So maybe like isn't being compared to like (and none of these others are chain-builders, for example).

The problems for COM, as I see it, are: probably expanded too fast last year, when landlords were falling over themselves to offer sites, and they had cash coming (or banked) from going public. But this is with hindsight, having seen consumer expenditure weaken since, due to Brexit, continued economic pressure, general election uncertainty and (let's be quite blunt) possibly an unspoken effect from them serving modern mid-East style food in a time of mid-east inspired violence.

What do I think will happen? First of all, the COM team are quite talented and have shown in the past that they can adapt and evolve. They "banked" the freehold of their nth London production facility when they had the chance, and are cashing it in now, to keep the finances straight. They've let go of sites in the past which don't pay back, or switched the branding, and they have more than the core Comptoir brand to play with. I'm sure it does take longer to build up a customer base for a new branch, because what they are selling lacks the familiarity of pizza, chicken, burgers... but they also have the advantage after that of being in a less over-subscribed part of the market. So many businesses reliant on consumer leisure expenditure are having a tougher time right now, I don't get the feeling that the COM team have lost their way, and I think they are more likely to get it right than fail.

seems alot of pay for when the net value was half the price paid.

but if Com can provide the food from their Core Processing Unit this should save money and with a turn over o 2.4m should hopefully make a decent profit....

Good luck, the old [COM] did 14p to £9.50p.!

torabora, can I be the first to congratulate you after reading today that COM has received a possible takeover offer our of the blue, I do hope this will be as profitable for you as you've hoped.

UKNEONBOY - post #3.
The Treasury seems to have decided that AIM Property Companies can't become REITs. Whilst they may well recant, at present that's a given.

They've also put very strict limits on the number of shares allowed in a single holder, and in this respect COM loses, with over 50% in directors' hands.

In fact, I don't think I would want to be in this club: whatever the unlocked value, control is too tight for my liking.

I'm not convinced it is reasonable to make a blanket claim that commercial property yields are in the 4-6% bracket now. If you register at propex.co.uk for example, you can view details of all sorts of commercial property in the SE of England, many with yields over 7%. The lower yields usually apply to larger buildings in prime locations, whereas the smaller developments in fringe towns which COM goes in for usually have rather higher yields. Note that their St Johns Court building in High Wycombe was sold on a 7.47% yield.

Also I might suggest you look at the IPD website - their annual index survey of UK property returns has been going 20+ years and they reckon at end-2005, the "all commercial property" yield was 6% and that the outlook for 2006 was for this to rise, reflecting higher interest rates. Again, the 6% average is made up of lower yields on large prime properties and higher yields on smaller properties outside prime locations.

The last set of figures didn't give an entirely clear picture, though they did say that "other operating income" of £6.3m was primarily rental income, but this could easily represent a capital value under £100m gross - for example, on a 7.1% average yield, the capital value would be £89.15m. They stated net debt at 31.3.06 as £51m, so I think it may be fairer to state NAV at about £38m. That still makes the shares cheap on asset grounds but not by the amount suggested above.

COM isn't the only quoted property company tightly controlled by its directors and this accounts in part for the general lack of interest in the shares, the wide spread between bid and offer prices, and the general lack of a liquid market. Nor is it the only such company to deliberately obscure NAV by classing most property as Current Assets in the balance sheet - and this can go on for donkeys years, so that the real NAV per share is never revealed. SO while I think COM is probably quite cheap, it could carry on being so for a long time.
