the 125k T trade at 10.5 probably was single handedly responsible for the fall this pm...expect another gain tomorrow...

I don't think I bought enough! Only about 8K. I find it a little worrying that so much of the share issue is held by so few people. This can encourage wild swings in the share price. If they knew anything they could dump the lot and holders like me would get stuffed. I am fairly convinced however that CSP is the way forward. When everybody got lots of exercise just cycling to work we didn't need health and fitness clubs but now we do. It could be a real growth area.

good to see though that buyers are coming in despite the fall - seeing the increased value for money at these levels they probably didn't think they would see again!!

what free float?

yep-the price was 10.75/11p at the time so they had to pay a 1p premium. Looks like the free float of shares is diminishing.

Bought some of these earlier-nice one to tuck away. Looks like every 10-15K bought ticks it up.

Hadn't noticed the part in the title post about 84% of the shares being held by just 6 shareholders - this could have a massive effect on the share price movements if demand creeps up - and 2 days on the leader board is not going to distract attention form this stock

Hi, I am currently studying for a Diploma in Management Studies at UCE in Birmingham and have a financial project to complete. The two companies that I have chosen off the FTSE Index are L A Fitness and Crown Sports to compare and report on. Wonder Boy - It seems that you have a great deal of knowledge of these two companies and I would be grateful if you could share with me some of the website addresses you access for up-to-date information. I have made a note of leisureopportunities.com which you mention above but would be grateful for any others you may know of. Thanks!!

Here's what LeisureOpportunities.com said about results: Crown Sports has reported a 53 per cent increase in operating profits in its interim results for the first six months of 2003. The operator, which completed the disposal of its non-core assets with the sale of Crown Content in August, is now entirely focussed on health and fitness. The disposals reduced group borrowings from £34.96m at the end of 2002 to £1m, reducing gearing from 68 per cent to 36 per cent. The group experienced a 7 per cent like for like turnover decline in the health and fitness business, but there was a 44 per cent increase in operating profit due to a 38 per cent improvement in retention rates and a 3 per cent growth in membership at Dragons clubs. This growth has been attributed to improving service levels and the more stable nature of the operator's older customer base. "The results for the first six months of 2003 reflect a group which is entirely different in structure from the corresponding period in 2003," says chairman, Ray Pierce. "Dragons is now well positioned to exploit its market positioning to deliver strong growth and financial performance."

Any opinions on results? Not had time to have a proper look yet but they seem fairly good, even if not as great as I had hoped. Will be interesting to see where the share price is after the next (traditionally stronger) half year.

CSP have bought results forward to Thursday, a week earlier than scheduled. Anyone know if it's common for company's to do this? If not, is it usually a good, bad or indifferent sign? Cheers

Hi Spooky. Glad to have someone to talk to on here, been VERY quiet! Do you hold any CSP? Currently on my hols (paid for by LA Fitness profits) but I'll try to respond quickly to the points you've raised: 1) Debt in 2002 report was #35 million. Subtract the proportion of the proceeds from the Crown Golf and Crown Content disposals, that the company have stated will be used to pay down debt, leaves debt figure of #20 million. Should be reduced further this year from positive cashflow (interest charge will be approx #1.7 million less than in 2002 and renovation costs have been to the best of my knowledge virtually zero). Maybe #15 million is a tad optimistic, I'll agree to meet you halfway, #17.5 million. 2) Unfortunatley I don't have a copy of the accounts to hand. To get #6 million operating profits, I think I would probably have taken 2002 revenues from the continued operations, subtracted half of the 2002 centralised costs (only taking half because the cost rationalisation programme and 3 disposals would have reduced such costs significantly), and subtracted 90% of the 2002 costs linked to those continued operations (90% because of rationalisation programme). Will have a proper look when I get home. 3) My understanding is that there is no single correct method for calculating the P/E, the important thing is that you are consistent in your approach. Using the method I have above (i.e. market cap / operating profit), LA Fitness trades on an historic P/E of 11, CSP an historic P/E of 5. 4) I would be interested to know why you think CSP is more exposed than LFS to individual balance sheet pressure. The typical LFS customer is a 20-something, city worker living in rented accomodation. CSP customers tend to be older and own their own homes. LFS customers are more likely to lose their job, move away etc than CSP customers. Also CSP has the advantage that its Fitness Express gyms recieve fixed payments from the gym owners regardless of 'footfall'. And finally, a mate of mine works in the Brentwood Dragons and she is always complaining that they are "sooooo busy". CSP are up another 3.5% today. Mid price is now 7.5p, or 36% higher than when I started this thread 4 weeks ago! Set a target price of 14p.

Operating profits for 2003 will possibly be £6 million or there abouts,but you need to allow for tax and central costs before working out the PE.Tax losses may well impact the tax charge short term but you really need to allow for it when valuing the business.Debt will depend on this years cashflow but will probably end closer to £20 million than £15m.The demographic of their membership and it's geographic concentration in the south east is a concern.Individual balance sheets are under pressure and i know that renewals have been under severe pressure this year within the industry,there is every reason to suspect that Dragon will have suffered as much as others.Interestingly the other stock you showed an interest in ,LA is perhaps less exposed in this way.Anyway shares do look too cheap,but as you say they are illiquid.

Interesting thread which no one else appears willing to acknowledge.I have a couple of questions.How do you get to a debt level of £15 million?And secondly how do you project a figure of £6 million for current year operating profits?

Come on! Somebody must hold or follow these. The company received a £42 million takeover offer in December 2002. The company has made terrific progress since then but it's share price has lagged behind. Currently valued at just £20 million.
