Preliminary results due 14 March. The debt is long term finkie, mostly due >5yrs. Look at the 2016AR if you can't wait till March. The board members hold about 250k between them.

Interesting play short or long potentially, but £525m net debt is high for a business with a market cap of £370m. Any holders thoughts on how this will work through.....directors offloaded a fair amount of shares at £26/£27 last year which obviously now looks timely. What is their current holdings anyone know, I would think deminimis!

Just bought in here. Not buying much at the moment but these look over-sold to me. Salty.

Could be a predator there are two with positions already or just the shorts closing before trading update. Either way this is still too cheap.

I am not a holder but I have been concerned at the escalating cost of funerals and weddings and the marketing of prepaid packages . So any break up of the cosy cartel of Dignity and Co-op is good news . Neither funerals or weddings are rocket science but it amazes me that they have both been expanded from a straightforward service followed by a get together of friends and relatives into the " MGM " performance of today . I should not be linking the two but modest weddings and funerals has to eventually come back into fashion . If Amazon is prepared to enter the health care business then the cushy world of undertakers may also be under threat .

I wish they could put all their debt in a coffin and bury it somewhere.

Half where it is now, desperately needs to raise cash, not for day-to day, but that debt level is far too high, particularly with the clouded outlook for the business, people will start negotiating the cost of their funeral with this business, the shoe is firmly on the consumer, it might be this business that reaches its own funeral first!

Absolutely. Same comment as on the day of the announcement - they are cutting income on their main product by 25%, which will have a percentage larger impact on their net margin (costs remain the same). Even then they will still be more expensive than their competitors, they cannot say what the volumes going forward will be (still lower, at best by less than they would have been had they not cut prices) and they therefore have no guidance. The debt is well chronicled, and is long term. But when looking at the share price, you have to consider the enterprise value, which is the debt added to the market value - this gives the market valuation of the entire business. As the debt is such a large percentage of the enterprise value, fairly small changes in enterprise value (as assessed by the market) are caused by much larger swings in equity value (the share price). I was surprised it was trading as high as 1000p-ish on results day and the next day. Current levels better reflect the value of the equity, but given the utter uncertainty of the forecast, there may be more risk to price in.

The issue is significant margin erosion, and a very large debt overhang, serviceable but there significant intangible assets, and a large negative value, cash raising essential, can see another warning here, and what about the pension issue, this is a labour intensive business!

....and therefore there is ongoing downward pressure. Could get to a silly value.

Well Hangman, I think you have to look at Harris’s move on Glencore in 2015, bought in around 160p, watched it collapse to 70p, no sweat, Glencore raised cash and Harris participated, since then they more than doubled their money, probably sitting on close to £1 billion profit right now!

Indeed Hangers. Back to the price they were when LOQ was 20p :)

Think this will be raising cash soon, so they can until then, Harris and Co. normally position themselves ahead of these announcements to pick up stock on the cheap!
