kaos3: if Roland owns Ardgowan - why did DIS not just simply sign a distribution and production contract? as they are reliable partner anyway (Roland) and there is no need to strengten the relationships. no need to limit 25 % of DIS capital to 5 % return - or even less - regarding the warrants. What is the rational of doing 5 % (only) in this high growth well managed company?
tommyjnewton: The warrants are likely to keep the share price down for some time. Plus directors awarded themselves a lot of options some time back. Too much dilution IMHO. Plus once the dilution starts it tends to continue. End result is likely to be consolidation in a year or two. 100 old shares for a new one. Hopefully I'm wrong.
kaos3: Roland went himself for direct equity in the new project. For DIS he chose convertible loan (did not find who holds the opion to convert and other details of conversion on the fast reding). in the process issuing shares in DIS at costs (fees) and warrants. why is that so? TIA
someuwin: Interesting! - considering Today's DIS news.... Roland Grain (DIS director and 20% shareholder) has just paid £7.2 million to become major shareholder and funder of a new Scotch whisky distillery
jamessmith23: Looking at performance over the last year it has been very strong, and it is around the highs of a few years ago. This still looks fairly cheap on a lot of metrics, especially given the increase in revenue for H1 versus last year, if they can maintain anything like that level of growth then surely its a bit of a no brainer? The revenue split for FY 2020 was a third and 2 thirds but on stocko the expectations is a similar H1 to H2, is this what analysts are expecting? I'm fairly new to the share so would be interested in people's views for why there was such a sell off over 2019, sometimes its just due to overhype getting ahead of fundamentals and then share price later catches up or is rooted in a bigger problem? Looks like revenue and profit growth has been fairly consistent and not volatile like the share price
haggismchaggis: ClermontAce, a long time ago, before you arrived on this board, I was saying that DIS is worth a lot more because of the value of it's brands, the market wasn't interested in that fact and probably isn't right now either, possibly because DG keeps telling the big money investors that the core strategy is to build and sell brands, but he never sells any, like PI's in love with a stock, he seems to be in love with the brands he has developed. . Here's one of my posts from 16 months ago, and in that 16 months not a single brand has been sold. At this rate we'll all die of old age before we sell a brand!! . ================ . haggismchaggis - 22 Aug 2019 - 22:09:46 - 6356 of 9502 Distil PLC - Here's to a spirited future! - DIS . Peter, so Don has spent 8 years on brand building and taking the company from the brink back to profitability, it's without doubt a great achievement. . But after 8 years of brand building, surely it must be time to cash in on at least one brand, after all, it is the core strategy he himself put in place when he took on the job. Yes brands take time to build, but surely nobody, especially Don, can say they want to build RedLeg at progressively lower growth rates until finally a company turns up with a big offer for it? That could take another decade. . Progressively lower because the bigger it gets the harder it is to hit big growth figures, which I think I could see indications of in the last results. . Better to take the best offer from the big boys and let them make it bigger by using their own huge distribution channels and advertising. That's the whole point of DIS strategy. . As for sale of the company, that's not how it works. As Don said in his video, big companies buy brands. If Diageo wanted RedLeg it would buy RedLeg, it wouldn't buy DIS because it doesn't want all the other brands, it's happy to leave DIS to build those other brands, and if DIS is successful with any of those brands then Diageo can buy them when they are ripe to plug into their huge distribution machine.
daz1712: Post 9465(nbriley11)-you are correct my position has changed a few times on DIS from an entry point June 2019 till present both bullish and bearish, as has the company and several who follow the details rather than share price movement. Revenue increase from Year end 2016-2019 From 1169,1642,2014,2401 and 1million cash available and the company managed to break even-great news June 2019. Year end March 2020 revenue flat at 2441 shares dropped from 1.50 ish to .65 in this calendar year, with only 1 brand increased revenue the others dropped and 2 are no longer available. Very bearish Lockdown and the pubs shut...umm not good but Dis has Redleg and Blackwood in Morrison and Redleg in Sainsbury’s so the switch from pubs to drinking at home is done and instead of a paying £5 for a double in the Jolly Sailer have the whole bottle for £15, dis reports a massive revenue increase - very bullish buy back at jul 2020 News of Mr Grain increased his holding December 2020 from 10-20% so bullish on the future buy The company has had many ups and downs and when the lockdowns finally end, will revenue turn back again? Will Grain not be able to work with DGoulding ? Will Grain buyout another 10% and offer for the rest or another player come in? I’ve brought and sold between 1.85-.65 over the last 18months and currently hold 5 buys from 1.12-1.85 for your explanation nbrily11
clermontace: I concur with much of that Berny. The share price is currently sitting on a breakout and it will be interesting to see what the next few sessions bring. I think it's set to go on a good run which is why I've been buying what I can, although as we've all found, buying decent chunks (and by decent I mean 500K+) has not been easy. The all important Q3 trading update usually arrives in the first few weeks of January. Some resistance is possible at around 2.75p as you point out, but I think this level will be breached well before further news-flow. In fact, that's what I'm calling. If the next RNS is as upbeat as we hope and if the Q3 figures are compelling, I see a new trading range established at well above 3p.....and that would be fair. The rum is currently priced for nothing. And as I've said, even a share price of 8p would only value it at around £40M. It's a good brand and is very pleasant to drink. And we know, as the fastest growing rum brand for many consecutive years that it has started to chip away at market share.....and will do more so as the business begins to return heftier sums of cash. The company is in much better shape than it was in 2017 when the stock last rallied strongly. It is debt free, increasing net profit and is now returning cash. The best brand has outperformed its respective sector by a considerable margin. It hasn't been the most exciting build under Dong Goulding, but to be fair he has managed the business carefully and prudently and built a great platform for future growth. Personally I think Roland Grain's recent 20% acquisition and appointment to the BOD is highly tactical and probably represents the beginning of the next phase of Distil's growth. I fully expect developments on that front and feel sure that DIS will benefit from his presence. With 20% of the business he is certainly incentivised. As you can see, we're a very quiet thread with few contributors. Hot money bailed on the drop last year and since then stale bulls have all but left during the incremental climb in 2020. Any stock released will get quickly bought up in my opinion as demand is returning along with the potential for some sustainable growth. A healthy half a million in the kitty at the last count I believe and it will be interesting to see how much cash will be generated in H2. Good luck.
petersinthemarket: #9155 - ''CA a master distiller is a qualification. I think it is an employee who is now managing that side of the business.............'' Berny is quite right, anyone with an interest and access to distillery experience can pay for a course and get a Master's Certificate. It is possible that a DIS employee has been appointed, but DIS has no distillery and would need a cooperation with another company. Our main recent links have been with the Langley distillery in Birmingham, but we might also consider BHC and ELLC and I suppose Appleton Estate. I have been unable to find anything on the DIS Master Distiller appointment, so it's anyone's guess, but I would personally stick with Langley for now due to all our recent cooperation. Whether the man is our employee or theirs doesn't matter much.
clermontace: Permutations: 1) Roland Grain's interest is, for the immediate period 'passive': he sees a stable company, that is making cash, growing its profit and has a brand gaining traction in the market. Like many of us he sees the potential for organic growth and a buyout. He is in effect, one of us. 2) The same as the above, yet he also identifies ways in which he himself can add immediate and significant value to the business (for example through enhanced distribution) and so he has acquired 20% of a company that immediately grows its turnover and profit. (You would naturally buy in first, as he has, before adding this said value and reach). 3) The same as number 1 & 2, yet he ALSO sees a further opportunity to grow the value of what he already owns, beyond DIS, by combining certain interests and synergies, in the same sector, but through the benefits of a publicly listed company. (This is likely in my view, and I don't see this as negative as there would almost certainly be a pay off for DIS in its existing form). 4) His interests are potentially hostile to existing holders in that he seeks to acquire the whole of DIS at the cheapest possible price. If he wants to do this he would have to buy out enough of the remaining share capital in order to gain a controlling interest and who knows what his price limit for that would be. If he wants to do this through the open market there would be no choice other than a significant hike in price. If he wants to do this outside of the market he needs to find 1) willing sellers who hold worthwhile chunks of stock who,2) do not understand the full potential value of what they're holding. 5) Any attempts to buy the business, through any route, SHOULD force the hand of any other predator watching the company - especially the Rum element.....and so if a bidding war was ever going to happen at DIS, you would imagine that it would happen soon. That's IF buying the whole company is his intention. The point here is that pretty much any one of the above permutations points to strong upside for the share price There is potential convergence of multiple price drivers.....more often seen singularly. And all of this, when the share price is currently sitting on a potential breakout too. Either he has bought 20% of the business because he thinks that will become much more valuable, or, he has started on a journey in trying to buy it outright. Either will drive the price higher in my view.
