The way the share price is going up at minute I would say we may have the takeover soon. Looks like a buyer is getting ready based on this dramatic increase.

Since the demerger of Go Compare last November, the Esure shareprice has risen by 53% wheras the Go Compare price is up by only 26% over the same period. The current Esure price is roughly equivalent to circa 395p on a pre-demerger basis. I still think that Esure could become a bid target in due course.

By my calcs the current share price of 266p equates to 364p pre-GOCO demerger. Can't quibble with that.

Good start to 2017 ! esure Group plc - Trading update for the three months to 31 March 2017 2017 2016 Q1 2017 Q1 Q1 vs Q1 2016 Gross written premiums (£m) 187.4 151.0 +24.1% Motor 166.3 128.9 +29.0% Home 21.1 22.1 (4.5)% In-force policies (millions) 2.222 2.036 +9.1% Motor 1.679 1.459 +15.1% Home 0.543 0.577 (5.9)% Additional services revenues (£m) 28.2 25.4 +11.0% Stuart Vann, Chief Executive Officer of esure Group plc, commented: "We have made a strong start to 2017, with trading in Motor particularly pleasing. Our strategic initiatives are performing well and provide us with great opportunities and confidence to deliver our growth ambition of 3 million policies by 2020. In Motor, along with the market, we have started to increase pricing in response to the change in the Ogden discount rate and continued our growth momentum. In Home, the market remains challenging and we continue to temper our growth as we do not believe current market conditions provide opportunities for profitable growth. However, the Home portfolio continues to deliver a positive contribution to the Group. Overall, we have started 2017 better than we expected and we are firmly on track to deliver results at the more positive end of the 2017 guidance we issued at the time of our 2016 full year results in March."

Morning All Wonder if anyone can help? Like a lot of others I got GOCO shares on the de-merger from Esur. I've just sold them and was wondering how the proceeds were dealt with regarding Capital Gains Tax? Anyone know, or know of a more suitable venue to ask the question? Cheers.

Good set of results ! esure Group plc preliminary results for the year ended 31 December 2016 A strong year of growth in premiums, policies and profit Highlights -- Gross written premiums up 19.0% to £655.0m (2015: £550.3m) -- In-force policies up 8.6% to 2.174 million (2015: 2.001 million) -- Underlying profit after tax(1) up 18.0% to £80.5m (2015: £68.2m) -- Combined operating ratio 1.0ppt higher at 98.8% (2015: 97.8%) -- Full year dividend of 13.5p (2015: 11.5p) reflects a payout ratio of 70% of underlying earnings per share, inclusive of a 20% special dividend -- Strong capital position with Group coverage(2) at 149% (2015: 123%) -- Demerger of Gocompare.com completed on 3 November 2016. Sir Peter Wood, Chairman, said: "2016 has been a significant and positive year for the Group. Premiums are ahead of expectations; Gocompare.com has been demerged allowing both businesses to thrive and reach their full potential; capital is at the top of our risk appetite; and we have once again paid a special dividend demonstrating the Board's commitment to return excess capital to shareholders." Stuart Vann, Chief Executive Officer, said: "We are now in full growth mode. In 2016 we have delivered strong growth in premiums and profitability, and have provided more quotes to a wider number of customers through our footprint expansion programme. This gives us great confidence to deliver our ambition of 3 million in-force policies by 2020. We continue to focus on and control carefully our approach to underwriting, underpinned by our enhanced customer contribution modelling. As a result, we are on track to deliver increased value to shareholders both in 2017 and beyond." Notes 1. The Group's 2016 reported profit after tax is £269.2m (2015: £121.9m). Underlying profit after tax adjusts for the fair value gain on demerger of Gocompare.com of £213.6m (2015: nil); the Group's joint venture deemed disposal gain (2016: nil; 2015: £63.8m); the amortisation charge of acquired intangible assets, net of tax, of £10.4m (2015: £10.1m); and fees associated with the demerger of Gocompare.com of £14.5m (2015: £nil). The underlying profit after tax is management's measure of profitability of the Group and it is with reference to the Group's underlying profit after tax that the dividend has been set. 2. Group solvency coverage is estimated and unaudited as at 31 December 2016.

Larger than usual volume today. Somebody knows something. Does this bode well for results on Friday.

Good news on Esure today relative to the rest. They are definitely the winner. Direct Line and Admiral hit badly. Esure and Hastings in much better shape. What an absolutely ridiculous decision by the Government. Guaranteed to add 5% to insurance premiums from March and destabilising the insurance industry in the meantime as none of the companies were projecting such a low discount rate and this hits their capital surpluses. To me a negative discount rate is ridiculous. I'm an accountant and don't see discount rates below 1% on anything I look at. Having a negative discount rate looks and is totally ridiculous and a direct result of printing money. The government are stoking up massive inflation for later in the year. First food and energy, now insurance. What next?

What about giving a special dividend following the spin off.

I think they will want to get off to a good start on divis , but may be constrained by their 50/60% distribution formula. If they stick to that it could be as low as 5P final , or maintained at 7.3p like last year. Not long to wait.
