Many thanks, Dunny. That is helpful information. If you have time, can you send link of the COOP hearing too?

Worth a read https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/media/5ddfe31fed915d01a13d4c1c/Dignity_Hearing_summary_web_-.pdf More CMA stuff just been updated here - https://www.gov.uk/cma-cases/funerals-market-study Interesting that Dignity say this: "The CMA asked what projections Dignity had made about the impact of lowerprice funeral products on its bottom line. Dignity said it had not done detailed projections about the impact on its own business. However, Dignity did choose to be a part of the market and was investing in marketing its Simplicity product line." Good to see they didn't feel the need to do some modelling :D

Dignity, the price gougers, have had their day and the only winners are the board of directors who sold before the share price went through the floor. The CMA will insist on them becoming more ethical and transparent, it's long overdue.

Dignity has most likely made £100m in the trust funds this year - yoy numbers have bottomed. It's not all bad. In fact shorts have been covering

Only way this is going up is any shorts covering but not required yet as will gradually go back down again with or without new shorts.

This may have value again at some point but until the cma investigation is over it's hard to see we're the value is.falling profits increased costs while it restructures and the debt covenants margins getting ever closer I'm out for now take my medicine gl all

misca2, Thank you. Strange how perceptions of value change when a company is on the growth path, and then goes ex-growth. Those debts are not yet shrinking, although the business seems steady.

Summary The company has solid fundamentals for a short-term investment strategy. Strengths Graphically speaking, the timing seems perfect for purchasing the stock close to the GBp 469.2 support. Predictions on business development from analysts polled by Standard & Poor's are tight. This results from either a good visibility into core activities or accurate earnings releases. Its low valuation, with P/E ratio at 8.55 and 7.8 for the ongoing fiscal year and 2020 respectively, makes the stock pretty attractive with regard to earnings multiples. The average target price set by analysts covering the stock is above current prices and offers a tremendous appreciation potential. Weaknesses According to Standard & Poor's' forecast, revenue growth prospects are expected to be very low for the next fiscal years. The company is in a hindered financial situation with significant debt and rather low EBITDA levels. For the last 12 months, analysts have been regularly downgrading their EPS expectations. Analysts predict worse results for the company against their predictions a year ago. The technical configuration over the long term remains negative on the weekly chart below the resistance level at 603.5 GBp

Outlook The Board's expectations for 2019 remain unchanged from the time of the interim results in July. Operating performance in 2020 will rely heavily on the number of deaths, which may or may not revert to higher levels witnessed in previous years compared to the 576,000 seen in the last twelve months to September 2019. In addition, following the appointment of Clive Whiley as Chairman, the Board is also reviewing its current strategy in the context of the current challenges within the industry. Mike McCollum, Chief Executive of Dignity, commented: "I am pleased with the Group's progress so far this year. Although deaths are lower, market share remains robust, the Transformation Plan remains on track and our journey to build a more modern technologically enabled business that offers clients a high-quality service at a variety of price points remains firmly intact."

The tolerance is 2 fold. 1 not all businesses are within the debt service group. If they were it would give another boost to headroom and 2 Q3 should mark the bottom of operating performance. Of course the CMA could bring an abrupt stop to all recoveries. That is the main risk and nothing else.

Also so far in Q4 deaths are up 3% and pricing is up 2% year over year. This means operating performance will be better in Q4 YoY which could mark the start of the turnaround. The only real risk here is the CMA

So what do you think of the £1bn of trust assets the company has for pre-sold funerals? I estimate that has gone up in value by £100m this year. That's its best year ever... to judge the whole business, you need to consider the whole business

Still heading the wrong way they need to clear that debt down and with falling profits I can see the only option is tapping the market makes sense at this point

1.52 ratio is the returning excess. The main ratio has to be >1.5 currently at 2.04 (FY18 2.88) so not great but within current tolerance.

So there debt ratio is now at 1.52 compared with 2.29 this time last year has to remain above 1.4 to avoid breaching covenants.if they don't have a strong finish to the year there barely be above it

They need to raise cash and pay some debt down while the equity has value.The debt covenants are getting tighter.
