Well I think they've worked out that huge stadiums, hotel groups, national restaurant chains etc is where the real bacon fat is :)

Wanting secure and viable franchisees is very important. These are a cheap way of growing the business because they grow it for you. You want your franchisee to expand into adjacent territories and to be looking to build significant businesses of their own. You don't really want one man and his dog happy doing the rounds of their local chippies or equivalent and looking forward to doing that until retirement.

HaHa - thats true - the yanks will never give up fried food :)🍗🍔🍟 I don't know how aggressive they are - but I liked the way they talked in the RNS - they seemed to genuinely care basically which I thought was refreshing/sustainable

LM - my plan here, if all goes well, is to add on positive results at higher levels. There is still a reasonable amount of risk and given the age of the company progress has been slow. The business is certainly suited to a franchise model, and the yanks aren't giving up fried food anytime soon. I do have it marked down as a potential steady or staircase climber which is why I'm here, but I'd like to see a bit more urgency. I'm hoping the prospect of stock market riches provides the motivation for management to step it up a gear.

Hope we get the same rating as Franchise Brands which are trading at over 40x prospective earnings!

"It is the Board’s current intention that approximately 30 per cent. of the Group’s post-tax profits per annum will be paid to Shareholders as a dividend. The Directors believe that this represents an attractive, progressive and sustainable dividend policy, having regard to the anticipated amount of the Group’s distributable profits and funds required to finance future growth." Over 3x cover seems reasonable to me, but I won't get heated over the issue. luckymouse - the franchising model is great until it gets stressed by high inflation. New potential franchisees want a discount, not a premium for expected future costs. Sub-5% isn't a problem.

hpcg - agree div should be halved - but also does have the hallmarks of a Domino's Poland climber where they relentlessly keep grinding out the franchises. Its already up 40% from base & prob has further to go.

I agree about the IP and the potential for an offer, but can't agree about the dividend. This is a tiny company with no right to be paying a dividend - there is no way a US company would do this. There is absolutely no way the institutions are demanding a dividend. At 2p the payout is £454k. The company is still owned 2/3 by the former owners, so the massive sum of £154360 is heading to "institutions", none of which own more than 3%, or in dividend pounds, less than £4630 worth. The company should IMO be concentrating on growing its existing franchisees (this is a stated aim) and opening up new franchise territories in the US (it's a bit more woolly about this). The IPO describes the vast market opportunity so it should be going out and grabbing that. Removing 30% of the free cash each year will simply hinder that growth. Anyway, sensible corporate action

Last FY: Revenue increased 27% to £10.1m (2015: £7.9m Recurring Revenue Fryer Management segment grew 38% to £6.2m (2015: £4.5m) And more recently: revenues for the first 4 months, on a constant exchange rate basis, over 25% ahead of the same period last year,... - so not quite 25% over 4 months, but yoy. Keep an eye on deferred income, up 55% on the previous year. That's your future growth in the franchising segment.

unless I'm missing something revenue growth yoy in the 1st 4 months of the year was 25% and in the 1st 6 months of the year was 38%.That implies some serious revenue growth over the last 2 months !
