hatfullofsky: I would have liked a comment from DTY, we are co-operating and fully support ....
velocytongo: Dty have been preparing for this. It should give them the opportunity to buy out small scale players and increase market share.
hatfullofsky: FCA launches pre-paid funeral plans consultation The consultation, which closes on 13 April 2021, lays out draft rules showing how the FCA will improve standards in the sector. The FCA has launched a consultation on how it plans to regulate the pre-paid funeral plans sector. In January, the Treasury made legislation bringing the sale and administration of funeral plans within the FCA's remit, following concerns raised in the media and by consumer groups about the conduct and financial soundness of some pre-paid funeral plan providers. This will happen from July 2022. The consultation lays out how the FCA will improve standards in the sector. The FCA's proposals intend to ensure that: · products meet the individual needs of consumers - we will ban the sale of products which do not provide for funeral services in almost all circumstances on the individual's death · plans are sold fairly, including a ban on cold-calling to prevent consumers being pushed into taking out plans which may not be right for them · the price of plans are fairly valued, with firms stopped from using additional fees to drive profits and a ban on commission payments to intermediaries · consumers have access to the Financial Services Compensation Scheme and Financial Ombudsman Service from day one, should things go wrong Sheldon Mills, Executive Director of Consumers and Competition said: 'Pre-paid funeral plans can help people and their families to manage the costs of a funeral. It is vital that consumers have confidence that their plan will deliver the funeral they expect at a fair value. 'The measures proposed today will help ensure that the industry serves consumers well. 'It's imperative the industry prepares now, ahead of its upcoming entry into financial services regulation.' What firms must do to prepare All firms in this sector now need to consider how FCA regulation impacts their business and begin to make the necessary preparations. Over the coming months, the FCA will be providing a range of help and guidance to assist firms in preparing applications and getting ready to be regulated by the FCA. They will need to: · apply directly to the FCA for authorisation from September 2021 or, if appropriate, submit notification to become an Appointed Representative · apply as soon as possible after the application gateway opens in September 2021 - applications made after 1 November 2021 may incur a higher application fee · ensure they meet our standards to be authorised and, once authorised, follow our rules · pay an application fee and then annual fees, based on turnover Those funeral plan providers that cannot meet the FCA's standards, set out in this paper, or those which are not authorised before July 2022, are expected to cease trading in relation to funeral plans in an orderly way. This should take place before FCA regulation takes effect. Carrying on regulated business without authorisation after rules take effect is a criminal offence. The FCA anticipates that the Funeral Planning Authority will continue to regulate providers of prepaid funeral plans registered with them, until FCA regulation begins in July 2022. The FCA is asking for feedback on the draft rules and is asking for responses by 13 April 2021.
hatfullofsky: Stocko have different numbers but I have not validated against the latest declarations rounded numbers below :Phoenix 30%Granular 10%Artemis 10%What's your view on stakeholder value and the need to return it? DTY already speaking to their largest shareholder...
lenzcrafter: Can anyone shed any light as to why their fixed investments went from £21M to £965M in 2019?What happened?DTY seem to have a huge amount of debt, is there any good reason for this?
imastu pidgitaswell: Mmmmm, watching it, but not inclined to join in just yet. It's a really difficult one to price - there is a 'low' price and this might well be it. Volumes aren't the issue, it's margins - they just don't know what the ongoing steady state position will be, not do they when will happen when the CMA come back, nor do they know what their large active shareholder will do next re management. Neither do I...
hatfullofsky: Bit of a downtrend here. With all consideration to those that have lost loved ones, DTY must be very busy and profitable even at a lower price point.
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?
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.
