toffeeman: May 5th - the Times Hotel Chocolat This chocolatier and cocoa grower moved swiftly to raise capital early at the start of coronavirus, bagging £22 million from shareholders in late March to help to fund growth and to provide a buffer against the coronavirus pandemic. Given that the virus took hold only weeks before its busy trading period over Easter, it also seems to have adjusted to life under lockdown. All 125 of its stores in Britain, along with its four in the United States and five in Japan, are shut; social distancing is in place at its packing facility in Cambridgeshire and, after trimming its range, the company has stayed open for online orders only. Hotel Chocolat opened its first shop in north London in 2004. Unlike most chocolatiers, it grows its own cocoa on a plantation that it owns in St Lucia, where it also runs a hotel. As well as operating restaurants and cafés, the company sells accessories including hand creams, body scrubs and lotions. In a trading update yesterday that was light on detail but upbeat, it said that it had experienced strong demand online over Easter, though not enough to offset a material fall in trading because of its store closures. Analysts at Liberum, the house broker, estimate that just over half of the lost shop sales have been made up online. The company also put in place a new £35 million flexible credit facility, £25 million of which was through the government-backed loan scheme. While the facility is in place — it expires in December 2021, but can be repaid early — the retailer cannot pay dividends. It says good things about the popularity of Hotel Chocolat that customers were happy to move their orders online. Nevertheless, Liberum has lopped £17 million off its forecast sales for the second half to £43 million. The broker reckons that it will be lossmaking over the second half of the year and will announce profit before tax and other items of £8.5 million for the full year, against £20.7 million last time. The shares, which had a modest yield when the dividend was in place, trade for an extraordinary 278 times Liberum’s forecast earnings for this year. Up 2½p, or 0.8 per cent, to 332½p yesterday, they are not for this observer. Advice Avoid Why Has responded well but the shares are expensive
rathean: I like HOTC at this price if it wasn't for its exposure to the pandemic. Will wait for a lower entry point imo dyor ofc.
thewheeliedealer: Hi all, Fairly recently I wrote a Blog about HOTC and have only just got around to shoving a Link on here. I don't hold HOTC (yet) but quite like it and may well take the plunge at some point. This is the link to Part 2 but there is a link to Part 1 at the start. Cheers, WD @WheelieDealer hTTp://
deouro: I’ve added HOTC to my isa. Seems like very happy staff, great products, growing branches organically and I like that they are dipping their toes into the Japanese market. I think the quality of the products are good enough for that huge market. Their packages are already near the standard japanese gift size. A HOTC consession, even with current branding of merch/uniform & slight tweaks to the prodtcs would not look out of place in any Japanese station mall or depachika.

nithbank: The Board expects to announce the Group's preliminary results for FY17 on 27 September 2017.Buying opportunity ahead of dividend announcement?DYOR
nithbank: Nw99- there's been quite a bit of nervousness in the retail sector recently, but the price drop here has been overdone. The recent trading update showed a 12% revenue increase and a bumper dividend will soon be introduced for the first time. It's a quality company, great product and brand. AIMHO.
alfie4048: Explain terms of likely profit and dividend yield. Etc etc..
tjbird: CAKE left on half the rating of HOTC well behind
