FirstGroup PLC issued a positive Trading Update for the period since November 2022. Guidance was raised, FY 2023 Group adjusted operating profit and adjusted attributable profit will be ahead of the Group’s previous expectations. First Bus improved performance was driven by higher passenger volumes in H2 2023 and driver resource pressures easing in certain locations. First Rail open access operations also benefitted from stronger than anticipated passenger demand over the winter months. The acquisition of Ensign Bus Company Limited completed during the period, while management expect to receive around £74m as earnout consideration from the sale of First Transit to Transdev North America. Valuation looks relatively attractive with forward PE at 12x and PS ratio at just 0.17x, share price lacks some momentum. FGP is a solid Passenger Transportation name that has been repositioned in recent years. Not particularly exciting, but not a bad defensive name to hold in a portfolio either, particularly with the UK economy in recession...

Revisiting that SQZ is 240 and FGP remains at 101.

Will look at FGP again around Easter time.

I sold at 101 and bought SQZ which had fallen to 181. I figured that FGP would not rise much higher until well into 2022.

Greyhound - Sale gone ahead - FGP are £125m richer. The deal will help FirstGroup cut its adjusted net debt to about 10 million to 20 million pounds ($27.60 million), about 80 million to 90 million pounds lower than an earlier forecast.

($1 = 0.7246 pounds)

I see Coast are pushing potentially for a higher dividend return.

not yet. anyway, dividends should not affect share prices. if the company has the cash or pays it directly to shareholders (transfer from one pocket to the other) it doesn't make a blind bit of difference. The shares will simply fall 30p the day it becomes ex dividend. Having the cash though is very important to the fair value

Just to add that the 30p could be the first return to shareholders and there may be more. If I were an Insti I would short this down to buy in cheap as I could.

* Ongoing FirstGroup will be a leader in public transportation focused on the
UK, with a strong platform on which to create sustainable value:

* Well-capitalised and de-risked balance sheet
* Cash generative operating model that will support an attractive dividend
* Critical enabler of economic, social and environmental goals at key
inflection point for public transport

* Transaction subject to FirstGroup shareholder approval; circular to be
published as soon as practicable
* Sale completion expected in calendar H2 2021 following North American
regulatory approval timetable
* Recent trading: Group expects adjusted operating profit for the 2021
financial year to be ahead of management's previous expectations; current
liquidity in excess of £900m

Avanti bookings have went through the roof, especially from England to Scotland edinburgh is particularly popular, the Caledonia sleeper (serco) is also seeing a similar rise, people staying in the uk, this bodes well for first group obviously the west coast is part of a shared franchise 70% owned by first group ,it is very profitable, im not sure about the buses but management seem very confident going forward the 30p dividend is going to be paid and they said this year we're nearly in may so im holding especially for the dividend, but must confess the drop from 100p on Friday to 83p today is surprising as the news was great , i thought would go above the 100p and stay there. Wonder if the share is being shorted

Not at the moment but the headlines are good:


* c.£3.3bn ($4.6bn) headline enterprise value, including First Transit
earnout of up to c.£170m
* Transaction fully recognises the long-term, strategic value of First
Student and First Transit - headline multiple of 8.9x combined FY20 EBITDA
(on a pre-IFRS 16 basis)
* c.£2,190m initial net proceeds (after deducting First Student and First
Transit self-insurance liabilities valued at c.£390m and c.£505m in debt
and debt-like items, net working capital and other adjustments) to be used
in addressing longstanding liabilities, ensuring the Group has sufficient
means for the future development of its retained businesses, and enabling a
return of value to shareholders:

* c.£1,345m to be used to reduce indebtedness (including £300m CCFF repayment
to UK Government) and to derisk other liabilities (including for North
American legacy pensions and self-insurance)
* £336m contribution to the UK Bus and Group pension schemes (of which £116m
to be held in escrow), enabling move to low dependency funding position
* c.£100m initial pro forma Retained Group net debt to ensure adequate
financial resources are available
* c.£365m proposed return of value (30 pence per share) to shareholders
during current calendar year
* Potential for further distributions to shareholders in due course,
including following resolution of Greyhound, crystallisation of the First
Transit earnout, and as UK end markets recover

* Ongoing FirstGroup will be a leader in public transportation focused on the
UK, with a strong platform on which to create sustainable value:

* Well-capitalised and de-risked balance sheet
* Cash generative operating model that will support an attractive dividend
