from Citywire
Downing believes Games Workshop is worth waiting for
Patient investors in Games Workshop (GAW) have been rewarded and will continue to be as the fantasy hobby chain monetises its intellectual property, says Downing’s Rosemary Banyard.

The Citywire A-rated manager, who holds the stock in her £48m VT Downing Unique Opportunities fund, flagged its 17-fold revenue increase over the 28 years since floating in 1994 and the £449m it has paid out in dividends.

However, Banyard noted the ‘net share count has only risen by 13% in 28 years’, it has not made an acquisition in 20 years and is not planning any buybacks or acquisitions.

‘Shareholders can reasonably expect a lot more dividends in future and it is worth noting that the most recent dividend declaration at 130p per share is more than the entire 115p original listing price of the shares, and that in recent years the company has made five dividend declarations per year,’ she said.

Its recent success has ‘reflected greater monetisation of the group’s intellectual property and the success of one-man stores under a dynamic new – albeit home-grown – chief executive.’

‘The greatest rewards to shareholders so far have also come in the past five years, highlighting that patience has been advisable to maximise returns,’ Banyard said.

Shares in Games Workshop rose 0.2%, or 15p, to £93.95 on Wednesday.

I am obviously yes. I thought GAW had part ownership or rights to D&D materials. So if the movie is a success, so will GAW sales of D&D products

Here is the Edison Summary is you missed it:

Games Workshop Group’s (GAW’s) record H123 results included strong revenue recovery in Retail as COVID-19 restrictions eased, foreign exchange gains, offset by some negative effects, specifically from Russia and China, and flat sales in the key North American market. The lower reported profit reflects the well-known external cost pressures and investment to support future revenue growth, partially offset by good cost control. Our profit estimates are unchanged but we increase our dividend estimate. The recent strong share price performance takes the prospective FY23e multiple (23.9x).

Good advice by SWS and Yahoo Finance: "Calculating the last year's worth of payments shows that Games Workshop Group has a trailing yield of 1.8% on the current share price of £94.25. If you buy this business for its dividend, you should have an idea of whether Games Workshop Group's dividend is reliable and sustainable."

Games Workshop Group PLC announces that the Board has today declared a dividend of GBP1.30 per share, in line with the Company's policy of distributing truly surplus cash. Including this dividend, total dividends declared in the year so far are GBP2.95 per share (2021/22: GBP1.65 per share, as at January 2022). The dividend of GBP1.30 per share will be paid on 24 February 2023 for shareholders on the register on 20 January 2023, with an ex-dividend date of 19 January 2023. The last date for elections for the dividend re-investment plan is 3 February 2023.

I agree there will probably be a dividend announcement but having paid £1.65 this year so far (compared to £0.65 at the same time last year) I'm not necessarily expecting it to be greater than last years 65p.
I'll be looking at the interim accounts to try to ascertain the reason for the 2nd November dividend (declared whilst the 1st Nov dividend had yet to be paid - something i've not seen before). It felt like the company received an unexpected cash inflow which they immediately passed on.

Frustratingly if the dividend is less than 65p we'll probably get claims of 'GAW have cut the Interim dividend' in the press and from Stemis on this board ;-)

I wonder if this continued strong upward movement is in anticipation of the half-year report on 10 January? I think it is reasonable to anticipate a dividend announcement, and wonder if anybody has an idea what level we should be looking at? I would imagine that the market will appreciate anything in line with or above last year's 65p. Of course, given the approach of distributing truly suplus cash, GAW dividends are difficult to predict.

Have you got a reference directly linking the investment in the design studio to internal script writers and designers for Eisenhorn as this is not my understanding of how the process works (I could be wrong).

I thought GAW had employed Frank Spotnitz of Big Light Productions to showrun and executive produce the series (perhaps with Dan Abnett consulting). I'm not sure investment in a full script would have occurred until it was sold to the broadcaster which GAW suggested hadn't occurred.

Fast forward to the current deal it is Amazon who are preparing development activities before signing the contract.

What a statement from Amazon .. Vertigo studios ... at his is huge for GAW - 15% on Fridays doesn't appear to have captured the scale .. GAW announcement was quite low key ...

The Games Workshop Group PLC announcement that it will pay a dividend of 45p is an “important signpost” for cash generation and profit performance, said broker Peel Hunt.
So far this year, the maker of the Warhammer tabletop game has declared a total of 165p of dividends, compared to 65p in the same period last year.
“Comparison year on year can be confusing given that the timing of dividends does not follow a regular pattern,” analyst Charles Hall said in a note.
As dividends actually paid in the past year were 115p in the first half and 170p in the second, the analyst said the “scale and timing of payments this year should be encouraging given that the company pays dividends out of ‘truly surplus cash’”.
This is why he said dividends are a signpost for the performance of cash and profit.
The most recent update from the company on trading was in September when it announced first quarter sales growth of 8% to £106 million for the three months to 28 August.
“Hobbies tend to be recession-resilient and Games Workshop’s revenues are driven more by the strength of the product launches than the background economy,” Hall said.
He said product launches continue to be well received and there are a number of upcoming games releases “that should generate attractive royalty income”, including with Frontier Developments.
Peel Hunt has now updated its forecasts to increase 2024 earnings per share by 8%, though this is related to the change in UK tax rates.
