Let's hope cigarette smoking is a cure for Covid-19 ... that'll do the trick.

Imperial no longer offer scrips. They now use DRIPS (dividend re-investment plans). The dividend is used to purchase shares in the company; usually at a competitive rate particularly for those holding shares in certificated form. Remember, that with certificates you do not pay rent to a platform or brokerage. You may pay more in commission at the time of purchase but you don't pay fees to hold them. This has saved me thousands of pounds over the years.

They should bin scrip dividends, all it does is increase the quantity of shares in issue reducing the EPS. What’s the point of the company having share buy backs if they then give them out again?

Can you explain in detail the advantages please IK? As I’ve never taken a script option in any share before.

Years ago I took the drip/scrip option. Its amazing to see how many shares I now get each quarter.

Hi everyone, This seems very cheap to me. Looking at a longer term (multi-year) holding period I really don't see too much risk. Debt isn't particularly high and is easily serviceable given the cashflows. Dividend is great, even if it was cut by 20%. The revenue is very reliable... What's the catch here? Is it fear of regulation or the move of larger funds away from tobacco for ESG reasons? I can't really see the tobacco industry dying soon. I remember reading a while ago that the management was poor, which is evident comparing the performance vs BATS but with the CEO standing down surely this can only improve. Either way I've invested for the long term and will potentially look to add if there are further falls.

I see on this website it says £26bn, but looking at Imperial's own numbers available on their website, I can't see how this has been calculated. The only way I can get anywhere close to the 26bn number is by including payables in the sum of short and long term debt. However, surely this isn't particularly informative as it ignores receivables. Apologies if I'm being a bit slow here, but surely the debt number that actually matters is the 12bn and the 26bn quoted here is misleading?

Kibes, look at note 30 in the 2019 annual report on page 144 and you will see net debt as just under £12bn. In terms of cash flow for the year they generated £3.2bn of which just under £0.5bn was used to pay interest on existing debt. That leaves approx. £2.7bn for management to play with in regards to debt reduction, dividends and capital expenditure. Based on the figures above staying constant management could pay off the debt and be sat on a net cash position in slightly over 4 years time... however I doubt shareholders would be very happy with a dividend freeze for that amount of time :-) ATB

Poo, If you are in the IMB board and click the 'financials' button in the header, IMB financial data comes up and debt is quoted as ~£26bn.

He's adding short term debt to longer term debt.

Where do you get 26bn quid from? I believe their debt is actually around 12bn. Still can't work out why people talk so much about IMB's debt levels - they're less leveraged than lots of other "less risky" companies. Anyway, interest rates are only heading one way and it's not up - financing will only get cheaper

kibes, On the narrow question of whether IMB could never pay off its debt with the figures you give, interest rates IMB pays on its debt would have to top 7% for it not to be able to have a chance of paying down the debt. OK, I haven't subtracted the divi from the profit figure, but I'm just wondering why you think, on the figures you give, that IMB couldn't pay off the debt if it was determined to do so - since I doubt it pays 7% or over on that debt. One financial statement I read on a website quotes annual interest as being about £560m. I do find financial data confusing though - for instance, the divi cover given in various sources is either 0.51 (as on ADVFN) - which looks unsustainable - or 1.32 in other sources, which looks just about OK. I have figured out that ADVFN uses the definition of dividend cover as EPS Basic/Dividend PS, whereas others may use EPS (adjusted)/Dividend PS. The latter gives the higher fIgure. I need to learn more about how to read financial statements ;0)
