GK do make some good ales, however when they force you to drink that IPA muck as its the only ale stocked I'll take my custom elsewhere.

Agree with you yf23, Green King IPA and Doombar are both mass produced ditch water in my opinion. I'm fortunate to have Purity Brewery and Church End brewery in my area. Greene King do promote local ales so fair play to them.

Or quite possibly having drunk real ales since I was a teen and not lagers I can differentiate between the rubbish and the good stuff. BTW do you know the difference between lager and ales ?

Liberum note: (ShareCast News) - Analysts at Liberum initiated coverage on UK-listed leisure stocks at 'neutral' despite recent strong growth in the sector as leisure operators slowly filled the vacuum left by retailers on the High Street. Over the past five years, spending on drinking and eating out had rise by 21%, versus just 10% growth for doing so at home. Pubs were still the preferred leisure establishment, but consumers had increasingly more choice and more intense inflationary headwinds were creating "operational challenges" for some, they said. Socio-political uncertainty and lower consumer confidence were also likely to lead to tighter family budgets. Hence, the broker said it preferred those companies who were offering "structural growth plays", outsourcing and travel hubs rather than High Street, that is, and those with the greatest pricing power and best cost levers to pull-through innovation, scale or synergy. Liberum's top picks in the sector were Compass (buy; target: 1,850p) and SSP (buy; target: 540.0p) and Greene King (buy; target: 780.0p) for yield. Mitchell's & Butler's (sell; target: 210.0p) and Domino's Pizza (sell; target: 250.0p) on the other hand should be avoided due to the structural challenges they would face, the broker said. Merlin (hold; target: 515.0p) offered long-term value, but faced short-term headwinds which at this point in time outweighed the risks, while Elegant Hotels (buy; target: 125.0p) offered "deep value".

#943-955, He was granted more options in February. I think execs just regard it as part of their remuneration package - get options, sell, pocket profit, get more options......

bend1pa, There's no doubt that current bank interest rates are much lower and have lasted much longer than anyone expected, but there is a difference between short-term lending at variable rates, and funding very long-term investment over decades. Short-term bank finance can usually be called-in without notice and, of course, there is no control over interest rates once they start to move (as I, as a property developer, found out in 1992 when I completed the purchase of my biggest ever site in the week interest rates went up twice to 15%!). We used SWAPS for just that reason - that you know what your interest rates are going to be over a fixed period and you are not going to be caught out. Almost all the pubco's use long-term bonds, usually secured against the pub properties, and they all seem to have the same sort of 'blended' rate around 6%. As bonds reach maturity, they are often renewed or refinanced to stretch out the repayment profile and average out the interest rate. In May 2016, GNK raised £300m at just over 4% fixed to 3035. You picked up your figure from the cashflow statement and you will see from that that £200m was used to repay (presumably more expensive) debt. I suspect (but am not 100% sure) that the 'payment on derivative liabilities' was to pay off the SWAPS that were no longer needed on the loans repaid.

Thanks for your explanation jeffian. But that still doesn't explain why GNK doled out £117m this last year for 'payment on derivative liabilities' which didn't occur in the previous year. Also fixing just over 6% in long term interest rates seems inordinately high when considering the record low interest rates the UK have had for about a decade now. 4% would be much more sensible as I believe low interest rates will be with us for many more years yet.
