cc2014: I'm not invested so I'm going from memory and would advise you to check my memory. If my memory is correct the £10m loan has been repaid to CNCT and presumably Tuffnels borrowed the £10m from a lender providing the assets as security in order to get the loan.

the pilgrim: Of course he was responsible. Mark Cashmore and Jon Bunting were the architects of the CNCT strategy that failed. The pair of them made all of the decisions at board level. Cashmore deferred to Buntings greater intellect and business brain. The predicament is his as much his as it is Cashmore’s

jaknife: kazoom, Yes. From the recent trading update: "Net debt at FY2020 year end is expected to be circa 2X EBITDA prior to the repayment of the Tuffnells working capital loan ..." See: Https://www.investegate.co.uk/connect-group-plc--cnct-/rns/post-close-trading-update/202010010700066904A/ 2xEBITDA is well within the range of acceptable leverage for a listed corporate (3x is toppy, 4x for a event that spikes leverage on a short term basis). I'd fully expect there to be no issues getting that refinanced. FWIW, taken private, they'd easily get 4 to 5 x leverage, ie between £160 to £200m of debt. And yet at a mkt cap of £65m, equity is on c. 1.6x EBITDA! JakNife

profdoc: If a company can make over £20m after tax then, even if the income declines by £1m per year, it is still worth a multiple of the current market capitalisation. Even better is the record of income from Smiths News - it has remained much the same for many years (courtesy of cost savings off-setting revenue declines of 3-5% per year). Here is the operating profit history of Connect News: 2012: £39m 2013: £40m 2014: £42.9m 2015: £41.4m 2016: £40m 2017: £40.4m 2018: £35.9m 2019 (includes DMD income this time): £43.6m The figures exclude the impact of the Pass My Parcel blunder. The are after allocation of share of central overhead. But they are before deduction of finance expense which amounted to about £6m - £7m per or tax (say £8m). Interest expense in the future is likely to be much lower than in the past when debt was £120m or more through the year (depending on the part of the month). To be conservative, despite the evidence of stable operating profit in this division, I'll assume that both revenue and profit after tax will decline 4% year on year from this point forward – there might be an sharper fall in newspaper/magazine consumption in future. I'll also assume that the after-tax profit for SN is expected to be about £2.5m lower in the year to August 2020, i.e. £26.2m - £2.5m = £23.7m. The calculation of the present value of the profit generated by SN, assuming a required rate of return of 8% on a business of this risk, is: (£23.7m x (1 – 0.04)/(0.08 + 0.04) = £190m or 77p per share. This compares well with the MCap of £55m. If the managers continue to find cost savings to offset volume declines such that the annual profit after tax stays at £23.7m, the valuation estimate is: £23.7m/0.08 = £296m or 120p per share, 5 times the current share price. Given the strong barriers to entry in this duopolistic industry, power over both publishers and retailers and high cash generation I'll stick with this company for a good while yet. Revenue growth would be nice but it is not necessary for valuation purposes.

this_is_me: I was thinking of selling out yesterday since the share price drifted down in September. I'm glad that I didn't. A positive EBTA plus cash generation in the first quarter is an outstanding result.

fenners66: I noticed the share price about 9.30 and then read the RNS. Hence my thought that it must be good news - until I read it. Then my question about whether the analysts had read it. It seems some of them now have.... Share price down about 27% since then.
