hatfullofsky: However, we consider that funeral customers may in the future require a level of protection beyond the measures that we are currently implementing. We are therefore recommending that the CMA should consider consulting on a future market investigation when the impact and consequences of COVID-19 on the funerals sector are sufficiently understood and the sector is more stable. If a future market investigation is undertaken, and competition concerns are identified as a result, any further protections funeral customers may need could then be considered. These could include, if appropriate, price regulation remedies.
hatfullofsky: Well there have been a few red flags of late 14/12 Strategic Update Desire to grow sustainable long-term market share could have ramifications for short-term performance Steve Whittern, Finance Director, has resigned from the board with immediate effect a Richard Portman, Corporate Services Director has notified the Company of his intention to leave 09/11 Q3 Update The Group has deferred its search for a new Chief Executive Officer we remain determined to grow market share without further dilution for shareholders
hotdog23: A heightened regulatory regime often advantages incumbents over new entrants/smaller playersTwo obvious examples - tobacco and asset management So if it does come in it would likely be a net positive Not talking price controls so reasonably comfortable
imastu pidgitaswell: I think those were in the previous interim report weren't they? So nothing really new. Still wondering about that RNS and the implications, suggesting short term pain for long term (hoped for) gain - share price still not happy, so will probably leave it until the new year.
reverend bong: Can anyone tell me what happened in 2017-18 to more than halve the share price?
hotdog23: Who would bid?DTY are number 2. Behind Coop.
undervaluedassets: Yup ... Investors are pragmatists. They will trudge here due to the inevitability of pandemic and the relatively cheap DTY stock price. The regulator will stay their hand .. They need the funeral directors onside. Grim but true
exile: I think the share price action here is another piece of evidence showing this so called "Pandemic" we are supposed to be in is fake.
velocytongo: Imatsu .. I'm a bit confused by the CMAs decision as an investigation has to be limited to two years by statute and that expires in March 2021 .. so I'm not clear that they have legal powers beyond that time .. the decision not to fix prices and not to create a regulator is the best outcome possible .. at the very least I expected a regulator .. this was no more than a slap on wrist and a warning to behave .. as an aside, I read the only institutions that increase prices in the pandemic were the councils, who are cash strapped and need the money .. this may have created a dilemma for the CMA who is in their interim findings mentioned they were minded to fix prices (hence the massive sigh of relief of today) using the council crematoria as a benchmark .. but if the councils raised their prices to those of private operators, then how would the CMA set prices? .. I do think that DTY have really lucked out because the CMA would be very concerned about creating disruption in the face of a second outbreak and due to C19 this govt does not have the bandwidth, money or inclination to set up a regulator.
velocytongo: Oh dear. I've already said in a previous post that the £1.2bn are long dated funeral prepaids .. this is not DEBT, which some people seem to think it is .. these liabilities are matched by £920m of investments, which means there is a deficit of £280m, spread out over 13 years .. there is £540m of gross debt and £80m of gross cash (net £460m) .. the company has loads of liquidity, no near term debt redemptions (it's like a mortgage, which amortises over 25 years of interest and principal and is £33m a year) and now with the CMA off its back is in the clear. If ADVFN says that it's got £1.8bn of debt that is wildly incorrect. They are prepaid funeral liabilities. Example. I go to DTY and pay for my funeral today and give DTY the cash. Let's say it costs £3,000. I give DTY £3,000 which simultaneously creates a liability (they have to guarantee my funeral at today's rate) and an asset (they have my cash, which they invest in the expectation that it will rise in value at the same rate as the cost of my funeral in the future). It is simply incorrect to call that debt. Moreover, these are all small scale liabilities and if the returns don't cover the costs of the funeral, DTY will still provide it, albeit at a lower margin (and this is a very high margin business). The only real issue was the possibility of the CMA fixing prices and potentially bankrupting DTY. That risk has now over.
