For the record. A week ago 5/4/18 Peel Hunt REITERATES their BUY RECOMMENDATION with an unchanged TARGET PRICE of 300p And in March 22/3 Barclays RETAINS their OVERWEIGHT RECO. with a TARGET PRICE OF 300p 20/3 NUMIS REITERATES their BUY RECO with a TARGET PRICE of 332p 20/3 Liberum REITERATES their BUY RECO. with a TARGET PRICE of 310p In my experience, it is very rare indeed to see four highly regarded brokers all aligned so tightly in their recommendations for a small-cap share. A very encouraging sign indeed. At a current share price of 240p, Numis see almost 40% UPSIDE to the current share price, Barclays and Peel Hunt 25% UPSIDE, and Liberum almost 30% UPSIDE. Damn strong broker recommendations and broker expectations. A healthy backdrop for the share price. ALL IMO. DYOR. QP

Nice price action all things considered - rejected 130 and back into the consolidation area

I'm considering adding if the price can turn back up - would be my second add. Probably not today as market needs to digest this a bit. Surprised price was so static after results - maybe word of placing was doing the rounds so no institutions wanted to step further in front of it knowing they could pick it up a little cheaper

Stunning results. Revenue UP 24% PBT UP 40% Members UP 35% AND A FURTHER 60,000 members since year-end Strong, strong strong OUTLOOK. THIS SAYS IT ALL. AN EXTRACT FROM CEO's STATEMENT:- "After a year in which our business has increased in scale more than at any stage in its history, 2018 will see the realisation of the benefits of our recent investments. This will assist in achieving the uplift in profitability built into our plans and in continuing to expand at a rapid rate. It is an exciting time for everyone involved with the Company as we look to extract the inherent value within our business." The low-cost gym model gains significant momentum as the fitness industry evolves away from the overly expensive annual membership to a more flexible, innovative and inviting paygo model. ALL IMO. DYOR. QP

It is worth revisiting this illuminating article from six months ago in The Telegraph about the rise and rise of low-cost gyms. If it was true then, it is even more true now: hXXp://www.telegraph.co.uk/health-fitness/body/low-cost-gyms-have-muscled-way-fitness-market-but-good/ ALL IMO. DYOR. QP

They are not necessarily better than pure gym. But at least I can buy shares in gym. I can't in pure gym. I believe both will grow market share. The comparison I make is to look at the low cost airline industry. Easy jet, Ryanair, and Norwegian are all thriving together to the detriment of the traditional scheduled airlines. The high cost airlines are having to change their product offerings (look at BA), but will ever be able to get their costs down as cheap as the budgets. My budget airline shares are some of my best performing.....i see similar happening with budget gyms. Jump in whilst you can.

My main concern with gym group is why are they better than their low cost peers?? Whats their market share in the UK?There are a lot of low cost gyms mcfit(Europe) puregym (uk) What makes gym group better? Mcfit is quite good low pricing nice equipment puregym is also great And they have a lot of olimpic equipment (instead of a ridiculous amount of treadmills ) As far as i know the main advantages in the low cost industry are price equipment And locations , so why do you think gym group is better positioned to grow than their peers(mcfit puregym etc ) Could they expand outside of the US ? taking into account that there are already low cost gyms brands , i know is a tricky question cause in the low cost gym industry is hard to have a competitive advantage but im wondering who Will be the Big winner after this trend towards low cost gyms Hope you can help me out with these questions And thanks ?

The only threat I see to this valuation is another attempt by puregym to list, after last years failed attempt. That is a real possibility that will no doubt knock a few percentage points off gym

I think there is much more growth to come in this sector. Quite simply, the more locations they roll out to, the more visibility they will get and member of gyms costing 1000+ a year will seriously begin to question why they are paying so much. Another thing to consider is that the younger generation increasingly living temporary/freelance lifestyles. Ownership being it things or contract commitments is not something that is attractive to them.....so this contract free gym model will grow and grow!

QuePassa, I could not agree more! Same goes for my local Nuffield facility, people are leaving due to high cost. I believe we are looking at a recession in the near future, if this is the case then people will soon be reviewed their spending habits, and looking into other options. Is this company recession proof? I think it must be, as well as a great fitness facility it is also great social environment people are in the gym more than pubs now. I have been to one of these clubs and they are great I can't believe how cheap they are. The only downside is they are extremely busy in the evenings!

from chat I have had many members at david lloyd clubs are apparently leaving due to increasingly high cost of membership and heading for low-cost Gym group. Their PayAsYouGo, No Contract business model is gaining enormous traction and popularity. with their burgeoning UK footprint, Gym Group are becoming a really serious UK presence. It would not surprise me if increasing numbers of corporate members started re-assessing membership in favour Gym group. A lot of people are talking about The Gym Group. Jungle drums/everyday feedback/ kicking the tyres - are all very positive and encouraging for prospects of the Gym Group. ALL IMO. DYOR. QP

Clearly this is a growth share, that doesn't mean the valuation is right. With regards to broker prices, who cares, they are pointless.

You based your numbers which were wrong on 95 gyms and last years interims .Not one word about growth and the self funding roll out from free cash. Numis up their target to 287 from 260p

shauney2, Do you actually pay any attention to valuation when investing ?? Or do you just read what the CEO etc says, think oh that sides nice, I'll buy that. Ignore the words, look at the numbers, at £2.40 these are a poor investment.

Blimey that was a quick edit Eastbourne.Before the edit you said the full year was £6m and you were waiting to buy at £1 You need to edit the 95.They now have 129 gyms which includes the acquisition of 18 gyms from Lifestyle fitness whic is expected to be "significantly earnings enhancing by 2019". "LIVE IT., the Company's premium pricing product, launched successfully in 44 sites in November 2017. Initial uptake is encouraging with decision taken to rollout the product on a region by region basis across the entire estate by May 2018"
