lombriz: With the benefit of hindsight and having reread the last trading update, which despite the supposed prospect of an imminent deal, seems to envisage DX's remaining a stand-alone company, it looks like the deal had already hit the buffers by that time, which adds credence to the theory that Menzies had been outflanked and were just looking for an out. However, what matters now is the future, and at least major shareholder Gatemore are sounding very bullish about that. It may take some time for their optimism to translate into a healthy share price; but once the shares come back from suspension, at around 10p a pop they would make a ridiculously tasty morsel for someone like RMG, so I can't imagine they'll stay around that level for very long.

speedsgh: Activist investor rallies peers in threat to block DX Group's mooted deal with rival John Menzies (4/5/17) - HTTP://www.telegraph.co.uk/business/2017/05/04/activist-investor-rallies-peers-threat-block-dx-groups-mooted/ Activist investor Gatemore has said it now has enough support from other shareholders in logistics company DX Group to block its mooted deal with rival John Menzies. Gatemore holds 11pc of the shares in DX but says it now has the public support of 18pc of the shares, including its stake, opposed to the deal and the private backing of an additional 20pc of stakeholders. DX shares have crashed nearly 90pc from November 2015 to the end of March this year, at which point they were suspended due to the company entering talks with Menzies over a potential deal. The announcement about the proposed deal came after Gatemore had already successfully lobbied in March for an emergency meeting with the aim of replacing chairman Bob Holt and non-executive director Paul Murray with four substitutes. But the move was later shelved by the activist in favour of scrutinising whether a proposed reverse takeover with part of John Menzies, announced at the end of March, was worth pursuing. Now though, Gatemore says the reverse merger with Menzies "grossly undervalues" DX and its potential to stage a recovery in profits. “While only 18pc of DX Group shares are represented in this letter, we have spoken with a further 20pc of shareholders who have expressed discontent with this deal,” Gatemore said. "We believe DX has significant value to it but that it must either be unlocked before a deal is consummated or the terms of any deal must reflect the future value of DX." If the deal goes through, DX and Menzies claim there would be between £8m and £12m of cost synergies per year. DX would acquire Menzies Distribution for £60m, enabled by the enlarged entity borrowing money, and issue new shares representing 80pc of its share capital. This means DX shareholders would own 20pc of the enlarged company, with John Menzies shareholders owning at least 75pc and its pension scheme owning up to 5pc of the shares. Gatemore said it only expected 60pc of all shareholders to vote on the proposed deal, meaning the 38pc of support for its opposition would be more than the majority needed for a deal. Gatemore’s managing partner, Liad Meidar, said: “We have a majority of shares that would vote behind us. "We want to make that clear so the company does not waste more time and money prosecuting a deal that won’t happen." Mr Liad said analysts reckoned the DX/Menzies deal as it stands would push shares in DX up to roughly 14p-16p but he thought the group's share price could rise further if DX focused on overhauling its freight business. Bob Holt, chairman of DX, said the company listened to all shareholders and welcomed “constructive engagement”. “The board has the support of key shareholders to progress discussions with John Menzies and we continue to believe that a potential combination of DX with John Menzies’s distribution division offers strong benefits. Of course, all shareholders will have the opportunity to vote on any proposal we put forward.” Mr Holt added the board was working to turn the business’s performance around and add value for shareholders.

spob: Paul Scott yesterday ... DX (Group) (LON:DX.) Share price: 6.95p (down 61.4% today) No. shares: 200.5m Market cap: £13.9m Trading update (profit warning) - this is the latest in a series of dire updates from this mail & parcels business. Key points today; Challenging conditions continuing Pressure on pricing Higher margin business failed to materialise Fixed cost nature of courier business is hurting profitability Problems integrating 5 sites into 1 On a more positive note, the lower margin logistics business has been winning new work, and "material new contracts are now being implemented and the Company's pipeline of new business opportunities is robust" Put this all together then, and it's a nasty profits warning: it now anticipates that profits for the year will be significantly below current market forecasts, with net debt consequently higher than expected. Forget dividends too, probably forever; ...It has also taken the decision not to pay any dividends for the foreseeable future A full review of the business is underway: ...and has commenced a wide-ranging review of the Company's operations with a view to driving revenues and improving its financial performance. What's taken management so long? It's been obvious for some time that the business model here was completely broken. The reason is simple - a high fixed cost base, and declining customer revenues. The core DX Exchange business used to be a massive cash cow, moving valuable parcels & letters around for solicitors, and similar. These days, they're using email instead, in many cases. So the reason for DX Exchange to exist has essentially gone away. My opinion - I hope none of my readers go caught on this one. I foolishly caught the falling knife on the first big drop in Nov 2015, but it didn't take me long to realise that the problems at DX were structural, not temporary. My report here on 21 Sep 2016 couldn't have been more stark, in warning that there probably wouldn't be any more divis, and that the company looked to be heading inevitably towards eventual insolvency. This share is really now just a chip in a casino, for gamblers only. I think its business model is permanently broken. So the equity is probably worth nothing. Optimistic gamblers might hope that management can strip out enough cost to keep it afloat, but that's not a game I want to play. Why take the risk? Insolvency is a very real risk here, in my view. It's also a reminder that whenever you see a PER this low, and a divi yield this high (see below), then it's a massive red flag - it means the broker forecasts are badly wrong, and the market is anticipating serious problems ahead. The market is usually right, too. I'm increasingly of the view that searching for the lowest PER, highest yielding companies, is a dangerous strategy which, more often that not, will land you in a mess. Fairpoint (LON:FRP) was a good recent example, and DX is another.

In 2013 revenue was £70m. Assuming it's declined by 6% pa (which seems to have been guidance to analysts) then by 2015 it would be about £61m. A 10% drop in revenue equates to £6m. Now I know margins are high in this area but they aren't 100%. EBITDA was down £15.7m year on year. Perhaps DX Exchange contributed a few million of that on a marginal basis? Interesting the FD walked. Suggests poor cost/forecast control was really the heart of it?Anyone got a view on the size of the Passport Office contract? It forms part of DX Secure which was £43m revenue in 2013. So what, £15-25m? Assuming similar margin then that's upto £2m EBITDA?mrbridgeruk - 22 Nov 2016 - 07:03 - 1292 of 1348 - 0DX, the independent parcels, mail and logistics operator, announces the outcome of the tender process for the contract with Her Majesty's Passport Office ("HMPO") and provides an update on current trading, including its planning appeal and revised proposal for a new distribution centre in the West Midlands.Following the conclusion of the tender process for the Home Office contract covering secure delivery services for HMPO, UK Visas and Immigration, National Crime Agency and General Register Office, the Company has been notified that it has been provisionally awarded the contract, which remains subject only to the finalisation of documentation. The contract is for an initial two year period and may be extended by up to two years.Trading conditions over the first half of the financial year have remained challenging and there has been margin pressure mainly resulting from a change in revenue mix. Nonetheless, with a number of major new contracts due to commence and an encouraging pipeline of new business opportunities under active negotiation, management remains focused on meeting its existing expectations for the full year.The Company's planning appeal and revised application to develop a new central hub in the West Midlands remains under consideration by the local authority and DX now expects a decision by mid-February. A further update on this will be provided in due course.Baticle - 22 Nov 2016 - 07:11 - 1293 of 1348 - 1Its Great News that they've kept the contract if only a testament to the fact that they can and have the ability to win business, this hopefully should bode well for the future and subsequently the share price.Imgoingallin - 22 Nov 2016 - 07:30 - 1294 of 1348 - 2shows they've performed well in HMPO's eyes over the course of the last contract.

We understand that it was a highly competitive process so retaining the contract is especially pleasing and provides greater confidence looking forward. We leave forecasts unchanged but with materially increased certainty on being achieved. The successful retender highlights that the quality of service DX has delivered over the previous contract periods has been respected. The only disappointment in today’s statement is the announcement that the decision on the resubmission of planning permission for the central hub has been delayed until mid-February. Today’s announcement de-risks FY17 and FY18 earnings and net debt forecasts and highlights the attractiveness of the prospective 2.5p dividend in each year. We leave forecasts unchanged meaning DX is trading on just 3.6x FY17 earnings and yielding c.14% on last night’s 17.75p closing price. A conservative 7x short term recovery multiple would equate to a 35p share price offering 97% upside, this would still only equate to 4.0x EV/EBITDA.* Passport contract importance greater than its size â€" In annual Group revenue terms the contract is worth a relatively small c. £20m â€" £25m but we believe the volume it provides for the important Secure division underpin the better economics of this area relative to other areas of the business. The Secure business grew at c.9.0% last year and should continue to grow strongly on the strength of its service offering and retaining HMPO volumes will underpin its economics. We understand it was a very competitive process and to win it shows the strength of DX’s Secure offering. The only material change would appear to be the movement in length from 3+1 year contract term to a 2+2 year.* Improved visibility in FY17 â€" Whilst we don’t ignore the intense competition in all areas of the deliveries market, the HMPO tender win materially increases the certainty of achieving FY17 PBT estimate of £12.2m. In turn, this would increase certainty on our assumptions of net debt falling to just c.0.3x EBITDA. With this low level of gearing it increases the attractiveness of the 2.5p dividend which equates to a 14% yield and is twice covered by earnings. Further confidence across the forecast period will be taken should Exchange experience a benign renewals season in January, albeit with the April renewal period still to come before the period end.* Valuation â€" Placing a recovery multiple of 7x on FY17 earnings would equate to a DX (Group) PLC share price of 35p, offering c.97% upside. Arguably, this multiple is supported by the greater certainty today’s announcement provides to earnings. The shares have recently gone ex-dividend 1.5p (10th Nov) leading to a 1.75p fall to 17.75p. At this level the prospective yield of c.14.0% is appealing on a balance sheet with little debt as net debt declines to just 0.3x EBITDA.s34icknote - 22 Nov 2016 - 13:13 - 1298 of 1348 - 0Happy days In at 17.13 and have the div to come ?Triad next !>

jbat: Fantastic. A penny a share dividend promised is a nice 4.5% or so on the current price, and who knows what more when it recovers further. The analysts think it'll be 5p per share earnings next year. If they were to distribute only 2p of that, and assuming the share price managed to climb to 40p a share, you're still talking a juicy 5%. If the business prospers but the share price continues to stagnate it's even better - 2p a share at 25p share price is an 8% yield. If they were a bit more adventurous and paid out 3p per share from those 5p earnings, it's 12%, and if the earnings are better than expected, well - who knows? I'm well in on this one. As ever, DYOR, etc.
