I'm glad they've weathered the last 5 years since I last commented here :) Too small to attract any attention, the whole sector is short on fans compared to the period before Patisserie Valerie collapsed and wiped out the over-optimism that'd ruled up to that point. I think this one will be a survivor/get taken out by a bigger group, in due course. Wouldn't chase the price today.

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.

Even at the current share price this is way overvalued.
Each restaurant is value at £1.57m.

Compare the share price on either a turnover basis or number of stores to tast. On that basis this could fall significantly

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....
