Special dividend Subject to shareholder approval at the AGM, the Board proposes the payment of a special dividend of 30 pence per existing ordinary share. Payment would be made to shareholders who are on the register of members at 5.00pm on 17 July 2015. The special dividend is expected to be paid to shareholders on 24 July 2015. Share consolidation It is proposed that the payment of the special dividend be accompanied by a consolidation of the Company's ordinary issued share capital. The consolidation will replace every 14 existing ordinary shares of 2.5 pence each with 13 new ordinary shares of 2(9) /(13) pence each. Fractional entitlements arising from the share consolidation will be aggregated and sold in the market as soon as practicable on behalf of the relevant shareholders. The net proceeds of the sale, after the deduction of expenses of the sale, are expected to be paid in due proportion to the relevant shareholders on 24 July 2015, except that individual amounts of GBP3 or less will be donated to Marie Curie Cancer Care, the Company's charity partner. At the close of business on 5 June 2015 (being the latest practicable date prior to the publication of the Shareholder Circular), when there were 331,332,902 existing ordinary shares in issue, the total amount of the special dividend was equivalent to approximately 7 per cent of the market capitalisation of the Company. The effect of the share consolidation will be to reduce the number of existing ordinary shares in issue by approximately the same percentage. As all ordinary shares will be consolidated, each shareholder's shareholding as a proportion of the total number of issued ordinary shares in the share capital of the Company will be the same immediately before and after the implementation of the share consolidation (save in respect of fractional entitlements). The expected timetable for the final dividend, AGM, special dividend and share consolidation is set out below:

Homeserve This plumbing, heating and electrical emergencies and repairs group counts renowned fund manager Neil Woodford among its major shareholders. In addition to its UK business, Homeserve has established operations in the US, France and Spain. Directors have been buying in numbers since the company released its annual results on 19 May. The details of the dealings are shown in the table below. Director Date of purchase No. of shares Price per share Total investment Mark Morris (non-exec) 2 June 15,312 435.3p £66,653 Stella David (non-exec) 21 May 10,450 430.6p £44,998 J M Barry Gibson (chairman) 20 May 40,000 419.4p £167,760 Ben Mingay (non-exec) 20 May 20,000 419.6p £83,920 Homeserve's shares are trading at 428p, as I write, which puts the company on a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 22.5, compared with 18.8 for the FTSE 250 index. However, Homeserve's premium may be merited, because the growth opportunity in the US is tremendous. Also, there is a hefty dividend in the price (until the ex-dividend date of 2 July): an 11.5p ordinary and a 30p special, giving a yield of 9.7%.

Profits up,dividend maintained,return of capital in second half. Valuation already high but should at least maintain its present price of 340.

It looks like Homeserve are having a real push in the US. This bodes very well for the future in my opinion. All looks pretty encouraging.

Results seem to have gone down well. They are doing a good job in turning the UK problems around. It was never going to be easy, but the rot has stopped. They could grow significantly in their overseas markets. I'm very happy to hold these at it is a very good company.

bad experience with homeserve on an insurance claim recently; I was on hol and wife had to call them on a boiler problem. First call out sorted the problem , however a second engineer had to attend to follow up and deal with an issue. This guy after 3 hours left my wife without any heat or Hot water, walked off the job ! they have lost credibility and the insurance is now cancelled, and to think I stuck with them based upon previous personal service throughout the problems they went through and subsequent FSA fine, so much for loyalty

That was a comment that I picked up elsewhere and reproduced here. Fair enough, I should have used quotation marks and attributed it.

PsMasurenguy "they have come through this whole escapade without a major impact on their credibility"They have lost 30% of their Uk customers to-date, the scale of the fine will undoubtedly lead to a further loss of customers (in the UK & elsewhere), it's likely to initiate fresh additional mis-selling claims and their reputation will be damaged for a long long time...so all in all IMO credibility has been severely damaged & I am still at a loss to understand the market reaction, but then again have never understood it.Am not de-ramping as have been an investor here in the past & held for many good years (sold out about 18 months ago).Good luck all.DD

Please can somebody explain why the markets reacted the way it has to the FCA fine - ok it's out in the open & uncertainty is removed, BUT, the £28m not provided for in the accounts must hammer their year end bottom line & statutory profit before tax will surely now be in the red (minus about £26m??) with adjusted profit before tax being half what it could have been. Am I missing something?DD

Simon Cawkwell - 9 Nov'11 - 260:I now reckon that HSV is a total bust. Clearly, HSV has sold vast numbers of policies to people of limited intelligence entirely deceitfully. Forget the collapse of HSV's current business - although that is rapidly in progress right now. The unfortunate customers are now entitled to have their money back. This will kill HSV several times over. Simon Cawkwell - 9 Nov'11 - 274: I am short at 232.5p. I expect the sequence will be that an insolvency specialist will tell them to raise a lot of new capital, absent which the board will have to put the company into administration/liquidation. There will be nothing back for shareholders. LOL - a totally wrong call here!

Hmm...looks like the market likes it..I think a bigger fine was priced in, but probably not quite this big. At the end of the day, the market dislikes uncertainty and they are now almost done on this issue. The scale of mis-selling was pretty bad here, by all accounts, so presumably that is why they are getting bigger fines than the big 6. Nothing reported on Radio 4 and Google news only shows up a Heart fm report. They could do with this being low profile, and they seem to be keeping it that way at the moment.

"The size of this fine was quite unexpected. It is not an insignificant sum and will increase net debt from circa £40m to £70m and it comers on top of £35m of planned capital expenditure this year. Whilst it will severely hit the bottom line it is a one-off cost and they have come through this whole escapade without a major impact on their credibility and have wisely diversified into overseas markets. This should draw a line under the whole episode and we should see growth return over the next year or so." RNS Number : 4456X Homeserve Plc 13 January 2014 FCA Update HomeServe announces receipt of the Financial Conduct Authority's (FCA) Draft Warning Notice (the 'Notice') relating to the investigation into historic regulatory issues at HomeServe Membership Limited. These issues principally relate to historic sales and marketing, controls and governance and complaints handling, in line with our previous announcements. The Notice proposes a financial penalty of £34.5m (assuming an early settlement discount of 30%). This is higher than the company's provision and HomeServe is therefore prudently increasing its provision by £30m. HomeServe will now engage in discussions with the FCA to finalise the Notice and do not propose making any further comment during these discussions. The ongoing activities of the UK business are unaffected by this Notice and the business continues to trade in line with expectations. HomeServe will issue its Interim Management Statement on 5 February 2014.

I don't think debt is a problem as the business has very modest gearing and is cash generative. You have to question fining good british companies £50m (£34.5m assuming early payment discount) for issues that they have already resolved and paid a very heavy price for anyway. They had provided £4.5m I believe. The market will probably like the fact that the uncertainty is at least removed and they can get on with their business. Not heard it on the news yet, so I would guess that as it's not one of the big 6 or a bank, the press are less interested.

Yes quite a whopper. Think they only set aside £6m. This will almost double its net debt. See they didn't provide a trading update. All this poor weather in UK and States can't be too helpful.

Quite a fine announced today. The provision did look like wishful thinking, but this is certainly a very big fine indeed. At least it draws a line under all of this..hopefully! Be interesting to see how much bad publicity they get.
