Perhaps we might see a TU tomorrow? It’s a funny one this, can’t decide if they will disappoint or surprise! My figures tell me if FY UK owner operated sites deliver roughly 4,250K and they have cut their cloth I reckon they’ve turned the corner and if you look to Paris which is a mature site you can really see what’s possible here if and its a big IF the piggy bank stretches far enough.
You have to ask yourself why would someone like Graham Bird be accepting the FD position? Today we’ve branches everywhere from Buenos Aires to Birmingham and Melbourne to Miami, with more opening all the time. We’re proud to say we’ve escape rooms in every continent (well, almost – Antarctica’s penguins aren’t interested) and we continue to grow through a network of franchises, making us the global leader in the world of escape rooms. Long may it continue.
Something is not adding up. In the last interim results, the CEO said 'The Company had 45 franchise sites at the end of last year. There were 43 at 30 June 2018 as three underperforming franchisees were closed and one new site opened.' But their Tokyo site rebranded as Nazobako and their Vienna site as Time Trap, both in early 2018 according to their social media. So neither closed as an underperforming franchisee. Does that mean they were still being counted in the 43 sites at 30 June 2018? But they are not listed on the company website and the social media for Nazobako and Time Trap make it sound like they are no longer affiliated with Escape Hunt. ???
They should setup a YouTube channel to stream the games in real-time. It would be popular and generate a buzz to help boost bookings.
encouraging update: FY 18 results seen to be in line with Board expectations with an 'excellent' Xmas trading period and good progress from the 3 recent owner-operated sites. CEO also pleased with strong pre-bookings for Dr Who themed escape games.
Second try? hxxp:// hxxps://
LONDON (Alliance News) - Escape Hunt PLC said Tuesday that founder Paul Bartosik has taken his 8.78% stake in the company to zero. Smart guy.
They have absolutely no fresh ideas, no worthy IP, no innovative tech and they are not investing in creating real market differentiation. There are other Leisure companies out there doing so much more than these guys who are seriously undervalued. These guys can only go one way IMHO.
Given that there are very few economies of scale in rolling out multiple units of escape rooms I'm not quite sure what this company are thinking! They are certainly VERY late in entering the UK market having purchased......and having seriously overpaid imho for what was a first generation franchised product that was at the time peaking with its first mover advantage. The public care little about the worlds biggest strapline, McDonalds are the worlds biggest burger seller, the're not the best burgers at all, far from it, but they are the cheapest, unlike Escape Hunt. With the sector moving forward so quickly I suspect that their cash burn rate will increase exponentially as they fail to keep up with strong fast moving independent and better established UK competition city by city. I suspect after raising so much they'll open as many venues as they can with extended rent free periods and as quickly as they can but the numbers will tell the truth in time in that they are using other peoples (shareholders) money for a scale it up punt. Having a quick look around there seems to be a couple of very well run and serious operators already in the UK sector no doubt run by creative and passionate teams. The only advantage Escape Hunt seem to have over the others presently is the ability to pick up centrally located sites. That said however the aquisition of a recently opened escape room venue in Bournemouth from their recent update seems like an act of desperation imho. Small scale, unproven operator, secondry location.
3 months later and still nothing. When is this company going to do something with its raise and its cash pile or is it just going to swan it away like other AIM companies. As the company does nothing more and more people are entering the escape room saturated market. Anyone can do it... When it actually does something the product needs to be innovative or it will just crash and burn. I am hoping that it will have a well known brand.
Nothing innovative in this proposition. It's already a saturated market with 100's of low cost competitors. What this company needs is some creative enhancement and something unique. A strong brand, VR, Theming. See what Thorpe Park have done with the Walking Dead. This is what the public want. Rolling out the same old product is not going to work. IMO this is a big sell unless they start to do something unique. Why would you buy into this unknown brand... easier to set up your own.
Will add more when I find it.!FOLLOWFEED
