Nice to know that that when prices across the board have been falling recently GOAL has remained pretty constant, in fact last friday, on my monitor, it was the only blue amongst a wall of red, I hope that's some kind of omen.

The Sunday Times - Business April 10, 2005 Five-a-side centres boom THE popularity of five-a-side football is expected to help the Hamilton-based Goals Soccer Centres boost profits by almost 70% in the year ahead, writes Victoria Masterson. The AIM-quoted football operator is on track to open 17 new centres in 2005 and expects its membership to mushroom from 35,000 to 50,000 by the end of the year. The house broker KBC Peel Hunt has pencilled in pre-tax profits of £4.9m for 2006, up from £2.93m this year. The shares have doubled from their 62p float price in December, fuelled by interest from institutional investors including JO Hambro Capital Management — headed by the activist investor Chris Mills — which has steadily built a chunky 9.5% stake in the £50m business. Keith Rogers, the managing director, said the popularity of five-a-side had never been greater. “The main drive is the enjoyment of the game but also the social appeal. If you asked people whether they’d rather go to the gym and run on a treadmill or play five-a-side, I know what the answer would be.”

My thoughts on goals Goals Soccer Centres Price 120.50p EPS 1.92p P/E 60 Market cap c £48m (around 40m shares issued * 120) Aims To build 14 further Goals sites, in addition to the 12 that it now operates. Of the 12, this includes the Wimbledon site, whose profits and revenue are accommodated in the FY results. The float price was 62p, valuing the company £26m. Prior to the float, the company had achieved 3 years of growth, FY revenue in 2001= £2.88m and profit of £356,000 cf with FY 2003 revenue of £6.1m and profit of £1.6m The placing raised £12.5m, the rest will be contributed by loans, amounting to £22.5m. EPS Growth between 2003/2004 was 50%, from 1.28p to 1.92p, which takes into account organic growth and the Wimbledon centre. Accounts Revenues are split 70% in football, and 30% non-football. Dividends will be started after FY2005 results. 2003 Turnover and operating profit up, £8.2m (2003: £6.156m); £2.2m (2003: £1.61m) 2003/2004 Profit on ordinary activities up 100%, from £0.3m to £0.6m. Negative cash-flow of £4m pre-financing because of capital expenditure on acquiring new lands etc. But positive cash-flow of £3m on operating activities, indicating that the business is highly cash-generative, given that its turnover was only 8.2m. Net Debt: £10m Valuation P/E Ratio to drop as centres are built and potential for future growth to diminish. EPS to rise dramatically as centres built to become cash-generative and loans repaid. If 50% takes into account significant improvement in sales to existing stores and the Wimbledon store, which is becoming more popular than ever, then the expansion of 14 new sites, more than doubling their existing stock of sites, indicates future EPS could reach 10p-15p if everything goes to plan. If things fail, EPS will presumably still more than double from here, indicating 6p as a conservative estimate. At 6p, then if the company has little further growth prospects, then a P/E ratio of between 7-12 ratio would be justified, indicating little upside to the price. If everything goes to plan, then even at 10p EPS, and a P/E Ratio of 10, the stock would only be valued at 100p. Nevertheless the company have opted to introduce a dividend at 2005, and the company is highly-cash generative, indicating that the dividend yield could be significant. Perhaps the pledge to return cash to shareholders is a significant incentive to buy at a good price, given that in the future the company will be significantly cash-generative and will give a good dividend- there seems no doubt. Yet, at current valuation, the company seems very highly-valued, and one could wait for better value before investing.

It's nice when someone recommends a share that you already hold, and even nicer because you've paid 25p less than him. Let's hope that he has sheep that blindly follow his lead.

Stock added to Derek Pain's portfolio in The Independent at the weekend http://money.independent.co.uk/personal_finance/invest_save/story.jsp?story=621507 (As usual he uses three times as many words as he should, and doesn't actually say much. But if it bumps up the price I shouldn't complain)

But we not talking about lemming's returns, elrico - we talking about that one GOAL-specific item that you said go look at, for which £62 is definitely too much ;o/ PS: Lemmings record is OK but imo it ain't that special - but if he can boost his returns further by collecting £62 from each follower - good luck to him I say ;o)
