Saw the RNS today. Disappointed still in the share buyback, Peel Hunt should have completed there contracted work in 10 months, failed and should not be paid! This buyback should have seen share price now at £2. Given everything and recession, plus the acquisitions,which to be brutally honest was Essentra, not Peel Hunt, they should have done their job and bought 150,000 every trading day!!

I hope Perl Hint get on with and finish buying ESNT share buyback quicker and bigger numbers!! This should have been completed by now? They should be buying 100,000 shares per day now for 30 working days to get the job done and share price up to 180p??? Come on Peel Hunt, plus come on CEO and BoD start buying shares yourself and some confidence in the share on run up to Christmas!!

Has anyone got an interpretation of these GM special resolutions? ie shift non-distributable cash to distributable. I may be a dummy here but this non-dist cash is not equatable to the share buy-back cash is it? I would imagine that the Peel Hunt deal was a contractually-bound arrangement? I was just wondering if the BoD might want to end the buy-back & hold the cash to sweeten the deal for any takeover vultures? (Let's face it: what good has the buy-back done?). The recent share price spike seems "suspicious" & there are "vague rumours" apparently. I am still confident & continuing to hold. Target price of 195-225p. Macro events may scupper these dreams,however. Good luck everyone. - vp

Essentra plc issued Interims for the half year ended 30th June 2023 this morning with H1 performance roughly in line with expectations. Revenue dipped 5.5% to £166.3m while adjusted operating profit increased to £23.0m. Statutory EPS moved back into positive territory at 2.6p. The balance sheet also strengthened considerably with net debt down to £8.3m from £309.9m a year earlier. Valuation is a little unhelpful with forward PE ratio at 13.1x in the 3rd quartile for the Chemicals sector. The share price also remains in a longer run correction and lacks positive momentum. ESNT is a share to monitor for the time being...

If the share price is going down and today there has been traded over 100,000 shares , if 75,000 of these are sells, why aren’t Peel Hunt buying more than the measly 58,000 shares a day? Last week over 1 million traded one day and still Peel Hunt trickle buy 60,000 shares per day!! It will be January before the 60 million pounds is spent? Maybe this is what ESNT board want to buy cheaper and cheaper buybacks? That way the special divi cost them nothing??
Come on CEO and BoD give us some good news??

The BoD should explain the lack ofPeel Hunt buying shares and the facts they have only spent £10 million of the £60 million allocated to buybacks!!! Either do another divi or explain!! The share price should be going up by at least 1p /week ifshares are bought,evenifbtheyhaveto pay2-3p over buy price!
Explain ESNT board!! AndPeel Huntwhoare useless!

Analysis of Essentra Buy Backs Since Announcement vs Performance Shares Granted

Since Essentra announced recently its buy back programme a total of 1,179,639 shares have been bought back. However over the same period 1,201,238 of shares have been granted as performance awards to senior executives under Essentra's long term incentive plan.

The buy back announcement stated at current market prices about 15 million shares will be bought back before 31 December. To date only 1.2 million shares have been bought back but these have effectively just been given to senior execs instead. So the effect is completely neutral which explains why peel hunt's purchases of shares are not leading to any increase in the essentra share price

my concern is why are essentra not buying more shares now? are essentra expecting to get them cheaper before the end of the year? surely if essentra has faith in its own share price they should be buying them up now instead of buying up later when they expect the share price to go down

i am also concerned about senior execs lining their own pockets here at shareholders expense

Looks very good Philanderer!!
With share buyback possibly pushing share price up by 1p - 2p per week for roughly 5 months, taking share price back to 225 region by September, plus another 1p divi in May!
I see good growth and a share price of 230p - 245p by October very possible given growth, acquisitions and increased sales and revenue!

Buybacks don’t mean automatic higher share price. If it did we would all buy Companies buying back for a guaranteed profit!

There are many examples of buybacks being followed by a falling share price.

e.g Abdn have been buying back their shares for several years, starting them at £5 which ended up the peak, and the share price subsequently fell to just £1.40 before recent recovery to £2.20.

The huge special dividend is the big bonus, and there’s a goodish chance that the share might have a bit of a run ahead of ex dividend date on 20th March.

Special dividend; great. Share buyback; waste of money imo.

Time and time again Companies buyback their shares only to see the share price go even lower.

Special dividends reward shareholders with real money.

There are so many examples of buybacks not rewarding shareholders as intended.

e.g Whitbread “rewarded̶1; their shareholders by paying almost all the proceeds of their sale of their Costa business via buybacks. The share price then fell from the start of them and has still not got back to where it was at the start of that huge buyback programme.

e.g Abdn started their buybacks at £5 several years ago and continued with them for years….as the share price dropped from £5 to a low of just £1.40.
