FRANCHISE BRANDS PLC

("Franchise Brands", the "Group", or the "Company")

Statement re share price movement and suspension of share trading on AIM

Franchise Brands, a multi-brand international franchisor, notes the recent price movement of its shares on AIM and confirms that the Company is in advanced stages regarding a potential acquisition which would constitute a reverse takeover under the AIM Rules for Companies. Whilst the Company has entered into an exclusive agreement regarding the potential acquisition, any transaction remains subject to a number of factors, including completing due diligence and negotiations to the Company's satisfaction, and, as such, there can be no certainty that a final binding agreement will be reached.

The potential acquisition would be consistent with the Company's strategy, as outlined at the time of its recent IPO, to pursue selective acquisitions of complementary franchise businesses that could benefit from the Company's central services and also the experience of the Board and management team in developing franchise businesses.

Should the proposed acquisition proceed, as it would constitute a reverse takeover under rule 14 of the AIM Rules for Companies, shareholder approval will be required. As such, a further announcement with full details of the transaction would be issued at the appropriate time once binding contracts are entered into and an admission document published and sent to shareholders with a notice of general meeting. In accordance with rule 14 of the AIM Rules for Companies, the Company's shares will be suspended from trading on AIM with immediate effect until either publication of the admission document or announcement of the transaction not proceeding.

The Company is also in the process of finalising its audited financial results for the year to 31 December 2016, which are expected to be announced shortly

Seems to be short on the free float for this share any buys push the price up quite easily. Most of the shares are tightly held by the directors

Curious RNS today. I was thinking of buying but will now wait to see what happens over next few days. Still looks a good business to me though.

How did it ever get to this ludicrous level.

I suppose the misleading ADVFN mkt cap figure doesn't help.

hares in Mitie have plunged 26pc after the outsourcing group, which staffs care homes, airports and offices, warned investors that “significant economic pressures” will cause first-half sales and profits to fall.

Mitie said operating profits would be “very significantly lower” than the previous year in a trading update, ahead of publishing results for the six months to September 30, amid a difficult home healthcare market and tough competition for housing maintenance contracts.

Mitie, which supplies social workers for the elderly as well as baggage handlers at Heathrow, has faced a triple hit of cuts to social care budgets, lower growth rates and higher minimum wages.

“We have taken strong action to counter the impact of these pressures by making changes now to the way we operate and initiating cost efficiency programmes across the group,” the company said.

Mitie, which has clients including Asda, Edinburgh University and HM Revenue & Customs, said it planned to cut £10m in costs by April 2017. Full-year revenues would show modest growth but profits would be “materially below” previous expectations, the company said.

I don't disagree with your conclusions. I'm not convinced the quality of the existing businesses is particularly high and it could be damaged badly in any downturn. Worth watching to see what kind of acquisitions they make though.

As an IPO this company looks way over priced.
On current share price of 42p, M Cap = 20m ; PE = 22 ; EBITDA multiple 18.
Revenue growth from 2014 to 2015 was flat
net tangible asset value is negative even after allowing for £1.3m of proceeds to be applied to reduce loans.
The only reason to buy would be the belief that management would make it grow fast and there are lots of opportunities to exploit.
Well... I am not convinced this has sufficient firepower to justify the price.

I haven't delved into the management structure much, but I'm pretty sure Nigel Wray was central to the old company and also this new listing.

From admissions doc:'The origins of the Group derive from its acquisition in September 2008 of the subsidiaries of MyHome International. MyHome International was incorporated in 2000 and its strategy was to establish itself as an international multi-brand franchising operation through organic growth and acquisitions. Following a series of acquisitions, it was admitted to trading on AIM on 29 December 2006.After its admission to trading on AIM, MyHome International continued its expansion, primarily through acquisitions. In particular, it acquired ChipsAway (via the acquisition of Edwin Investments Ltd) in November 2007, part funded by debt. However, MyHome International was unable to support the level of repayments on the debt and in September 2008 administrators were appointed. Franchise Brands acquired the business shortly thereafter, which included ChipsAway and Ovenclean, as well as MyHome.The Directors believe there were multiple reasons for MyHome International's failure, including failures of directors and management; too high a focus on start-ups and fledgling brands; over payment for acquisitions; and insufficient cash flow from the established brands to service payments on debt'Presumably completely different Directors but as the well known Buffett saying goes 'When a management with a reputation for brilliance tackles a business with a reputation for bad economics, it is the reputation of the business that remains intact.'Perhaps the lesson from prior failure was these types of services (oven cleaning and cosmetic minor car repairs) hum along fine when the economy is doing ok but people just defer this stuff when times are tight?
