Tipped in Telegraph newspaper finance section.

superb TS, which explains the rise yesterday. The only concern is the leaking of news to a few privileged parties. Looks like £1 is imminent.

What's up with SP? Twice as many buys than sells?

I think this will turn out a bit like Greggs. As FIF gets stronger, it will pick up more and more businesses on the cheap, grow via acquisition and improve its margins over time. Based on the brokers notes and some calculations I did, over £3 could be possible on a 3-5 year time frame. We shall see.

Agreed - forward P/E only 10 so still cheap.

We're knocking on the £1 level - long overdue IMHO

FIF isn't taking on all of the liabilities It isn't buying the business as a going concern, but pulling out the bits it wants and leaving the rest for the administrator to tidy up It is probably quite complex given the size of the deal: there must be a thought in FIF that the access to the coffee chain channel is lucrative enough to make it worth while I expect, given the number of coffee shops and the market penetration that JJD had, they are most likely right.

topvest, not sure what you mean by that. Can you explain? From the RNS announces the proposed acquisition of the business, production assets, stock and customer list of Johnstone's Just Desserts Ltd ('Johnstone's') from administrators FRP Advisory.

The balance sheet is irrelevant as they bought the trade not the company itself.

So they buy it for a pound? They wouldn't touch it if they didn't think they couldn't make it work in terms of synergies. This is where FIF will earn their money. They need to integrate these smaller companies and make them part of the profitable group. We will soon find out if they can do it or not. Would have been nice to get more detail on it mind.

the last submitted accounts for Johnstones Just Desserts don't paint a pretty picture From hxxp://companycheck.co.uk/company/SC140377/JOHNSTONES-JUST-DESSERTS-LIMITED/financial-accounts#financials "The latest Annual Accounts submitted to Companies House for the year up to 30/11/2013 reported 'cash at bank' of £1,167, 'liabilities' worth £5,783,345, 'net worth' of £-244,608 and 'assets' worth £2,810,290."

Looks like this could get us to a £1. I agree, likely to be a cheap deal for £1-2m if its being purchased from administration. They didn't mention the amount which also implies it was relatively insignificant.

I think they will pick it up for peanuts if it entered administration. I think FIF could go from strength to strength here.

Seems like Johnstone's has sought a buyer for about a month (you need a login to read this article in full but it is dated 2nd April): hxxp://www.thegrocer.co.uk/finance/mergers-and-acquisitions/johnstones-just-desserts-seeks-buyer-following-administration/516495.article

Yes, looks an interesting and opportunistic deal. I would guess that the price is only relatively nominal as it hasn't been announced.

Hard to say too much about the new acquisition as we do not know how it will be financed and what profit margins will be generated, but I guess this is part of their strategy to pick off the weaker players and use their size to get some sort of operational gearing and improve their margins.

Looking very strong, looks like the effects of the recent RNS have been overcome - not long before we approach £1.

The Charles Stanley note is very thorough. Medium term (I take that to mean 5 years), they are targeting £500 million revenues and 6.5% operating margins. That makes a pre-tax profit of £32.5 million. Put that on a conservative P/E ratio of 12 and you get a market cap 4 times the current one. Lots could go wrong of course, but I think John Duffy looks to be the real deal. I work in a company where we are implementing lean processes and I really think the benefits will start to show in the bottom line over the next 2 years. I think it could really surprise here, even though it is a competitive market place, I like the sound of how they go about their business. This is much more the type of investment I should be focusing on, not the more speculative illiquid rubbish that currently hog the limelight in my portfolio. I need to learn fast. All the best Stuart
