bprofit: This is an excellent update and things are looking very good here for significant increase in share price.. but Janekane be patient.. This story will not go unnoticed and it will soon get tipped in different places... we could see a real build in share price over coming months as we approach full year results..In the meantime it is not impossible we get a surprise takeout bid or some other exciting update with the new majority shareholder in place.. Good times ahead.

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.

clermontace: Noted Berny. I guess that's why I was asking....personally I have not been able to get close to a figure that I feel is reliably accurate. All I do know is that it's hard to buy in volume and as soon as you do grab what's on offer buy limits close pretty much straight away....at least until someone sheds a few. Could be a very newsy first quarter to 2021: We know there will be: 1) Trading update 2) New Director appointed But we could quite feasibly also have a run of other developments: 1) Fleshing out Roland Grains involvement / input? 2) A feel to what extent his role as both a very significant shareholder and bod member will be passive or active? 3) Synergies / efficiencies / distribution enhancement through Roland Grain's extensive interest in other drinks businesses (eg Manly Spirits of Australia and East London Liquor Company)? 4) NPD (new product development) news? 5) Sale of an existing DIS brand.....and maybe not our best? 6) A fresh attempt at entering the American market? 7) Further collaboration and innovation in the vein of our venture with Global Brands and Franklin Cola and Ginger Ale? 8) A bid approach? 9) Anything I've missed?? :O) All the above is speculation but the good news is if any one of those comes to pass, it would have the potential of propelling DIS towards a double digit share price.

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.

haggismchaggis: But DIS won't distribute RG's products, they binned the distribution part of the business a few years ago because it wasn't profitable enough, it was more hassle than it was worth..I also think that is another reason why HR sold when offered a good price by RG, because after buying the stock, DIS stopped distribution, so they were never going to distribute his Gin.

petersinthemarket: DG is on record (more than 1 yr ago) as saying he would not accept less than £10m for the RedLeg brand. This would have valued Distil as a company (for RedLeg alone) at 2p/share. I reckon DIS should be worth more now. I would broadly agree with LR2 about premiums but personally be very disappointed at less than 3p/share. Shares were valued at a little over this value in the past. Talk of 10p is highly fanciful in my opinion. It may be of interest to know that RG's record is not of buying companies at all. He buys a large slug of shares in order to get a seat on the board and enough clout to influence the course of events. FWIW I would suggest he will do the same this time and go for a seat on the board and a merger or trading agreement with a similar company. He already has a seat on the board at ELLC so this could be an obvious UK partner and one with it's own distillery. If he really wants to buy Distil Plc, he will have to buy another 400m shares at an absolute minimum of 2 each. That's a lot of money when he can get nearly as much influence at near his existing capital cost. If he really does plan to pay 10p each I would be more than happy. I don't know any more than anyone else here but I suggest the business agreement/merger scenario is the more likely.

petersinthemarket: Jane, I note that your #8783 received no response regarding stock overhang. I can hardly believe that you don't already know the answer to this, so maybe I'm putting my head in the noose, but I'm going to respond as if it was a serious question in case some newbies dont know. A stock overhang is a large chunk of shares which would cause havoc if put onto the market in one go. A lot of newly freed stock being suddenly available would inevitably send the share price down. It often becomes known if an investor, most likely an institutional holder, wants to offload a large part of it's holding. A good example we saw most of a year ago was Miton readjusting its DIS holdings. Luckily we had someone waiting in the wings who wanted them. Another was a couple of years ago when the government tried to offload a chunk of RBS shares it held after the earlier bailing out. Knocked hell out of RBS stock for some while as no one really wanted to buy. It sometimes also happens when company insiders decide to sell off a tranche of shares they were previously granted. For as long as it takes to dispose of a large quantity the share price will normally get held back. I am not aware of any overhang on DIS shares. If you were trying to make some particular point, I missed it, so perhaps you would explain. pete
