It may be viewed as debt ridden by some on the baisi of all future rents due to landlords,hence the treatment of the SP, but this does not in any way incorporate contracted forward order book of rents due to IWG and future revenue from any new orders from occupiers and continuation of existing agreements with occupiers which often roll over in any case. Hence the focus on capital light expansion through management contracts and franchising = no more debt on the balance sheet which will be reducing over time.

Current debt pre IFRS 16 is £723 million down £18 million previous quarter and 50% of the debt was acquired for the acquisition of Instant as part of the enlarged digital offering now being touted as worth £1.5 billion, although hopefully a lot more, would like to see booking.com or airbnb make a bid to add to their offerings wold be loose change to them

...from a while ago...

IWG PLC is engaged in the provision of global network of places to work for all kinds of businesses from home-based workers to corporations. Subsequently, the firm comprises divisions providing sales and management services across the globe. Given the ample target market, the firm boosted revenue by 22.4%. Consequently, it implies that the firm is placed to capitalise on strengthening structural tailwinds as more businesses embrace hybrid working. Considering the emerging demand, the firm is expected to monitor its property investing activities in hopes of enhancing portfolio growth. This plausible initiative was considered since the firm delivered a healthy balance sheet, hence a robust cash position, illustrated by the solid P/FCF of 4.4x, which is higher than its peers. As a result, the firm is expected to adopt an aggressive working capital policy to invest its cash to generate higher returns on investment in the future. The firm is confident that management expectations are met, stemming from an attractive order book, displayed by the P/B of 7.17x. Therefore, the security is likely to surge in value as the EV/EBITDA remains at 8.56x, hence constantly capturing intrinsic value.

Brief Analysis:

P/FCF of 4/4x, above Real Estate sector.
EV/EBITDA of 8.56x, higher than peer group. #
P/B of 7.17, above industry threshold.
Revenue soared by 22.4%....

Difficult to know whether Covid's going to be a plus or a minus for IWG.

I guess that there'll be some extra demand from those who want to downsize their offices to suit new wfh ways of working, but still want to be able to meet-up.

But then there's going to be less flying around the world and using IWG's facilities.

I don't think buying these is worth the risk atm, until we get a clearer update.

Flogged mine at a nice profit, and I'm going to leave it at that for the mo, although I, almost, understand the attraction for those wanting to invest in modern day disrupters.

FWIW

IWG first caught my eye when I came across an article by Yoosof Farah -Shares magazine dated 26/3/2020. In it he wrote about the CEO Mark Dixon buying 4m+ shares over a series of transactions in "the past week" for a total of £5.5m, paying a weighted average of 115p; having "fallen over 60% year-to-date, after hovering around the 440p mark at the start of the year.
Unfortunately when I checked on the prevailing price, it had jumped to well over 275p.
With the subject of office space vis a vis WFH coming to the fore, I have watched the share price for a month now, wondering if there is more to go. In that respect, I suspect I am not alone.

You may well be right Azalea, there will be a huge transition to flexible working, but most people i talk to want to get back into offices for many reasons, the younger ones want to learn from peers, they are missing out on true career development they are bored and under performing in a WFH bedroom others don't want the distractions of children spouses pets etc . Companies want to retain a culture and identity together with the opportunity to collaborate face to face, zoom doesn't do all of this,cost savings are great, but great talent on which major companies are built want proper interaction/stimulation and contact and the big companies want to retain this talent

This pandemic has forced people to WFH its not been by choice, for many its a dystopian environment, when choice returns expect people to return, there will be more part time WFH but still visiting the office regularly or others who WFSO on a regular basis the best way for corporates to do this is to outsource to a network provider such as IWG who can provide hub and spoke, that reduces real estate expense and reduces massive balance sheet liabilities under IFRS 16, surely its a no brainer?

Has the tide turned against IWG, as more office staff working from home, which is cheaper for businesses who do not have to rent office space.

IWG plc shares (LON:IWG) soared on Thursday following the successful raising of £320m to fund expansions and increase efficiency.

Although the offer was largely met by institutions, IWG followed in the footsteps of Compass Group and made the offer open to retail investors through PrimaryBid.

COVID-19 now throws up new challenge and opportunities for the company who are operating in a market that has seen capacity grow sharply in recent years but now has to contend with working from home. If the working from home trend takes hold after the COVID-19 social distance restrictions lift, IWG now has a war chest to target new opportunities in flexible working.

ADDISON, Texas, July 15, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Regus, the leading global flexible workspace provider and an International Workplace Group (IWG) company, announced today the launch of its new U.S. franchise program. The company is currently seeking driven, committed franchise partners to capitalize on the significant demand for flexible, contemporary coworking spaces across the United States, specifically targeting California, Florida, Texas, Illinois and the Northeast including, Pennsylvania, New York, Virginia and Washington D.C. for aggressive development. Regus created the flexible workspace concept and has been the industry's global leader since its inception 30 years ago. The brand's keen understanding of the market has enabled Regus to develop its business model through many economic cycles. The proven and scalable operating model can provide franchisees with a highly attractive return on their investment. Franchisees will benefit from IWG's built-in network of 2.5 million customers, including some of the most successful entrepreneurs, individuals and multi-billion-dollar companies, that instantly become available to franchise owners upon opening. "Since 2010, the flexible workspace sector has grown at an average annual rate of 25%, and by 2020, it's estimated that 50% of all workers will be remote most of the time. This dramatic shift in the office space market is creating a demand for more flexible space options and forcing building owners to adapt," said Darin Harris, CEO of IWG, North America. "To meet the growing demand, we are looking to rapidly expand our network through franchising. This is an unprecedented investment opportunity, and our franchise partners will benefit greatly by leveraging our scale and proven business model."An excellent addition to a restaurant/retail/hospitality heavy portfolio, the Regus brand has a strong economic model with low employment costs. The brand has stood the test of time, even through up and down economies, and continued to grow over the years. In addition, Regus provides multiple revenue streams, including monthly membership programs (with an approximately 70% retention rate), commission for selling other locations within the brand's inventory and MyRegus app bookings, among others. The average revenue of the top two-thirds of locations is between $1 and $1.75 million with profitability or earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) of $190,000 to $265,000. Regus is not just a smart investment opportunity, it's an opportunity to have a great day at work every day.Although flexible office and other emerging offerings like coworking account for less than 5% of current office inventory today, JLL, a commercial real estate service firm, projects this figure could rise to 30% by 2030 due to insatiable levels of tenant demand for flexible-term spaces. In addition, a recent IWG Economic Study found that flexible working is set to contribute over $10 trillion to the global economy by 2030. While concentrated in gateway cities, urban cores, and knowledge centers around the world, the flexible workspace sector's geographic footprint is beginning to extend to more suburban locations and secondary cities.  Regus is seeking qualified franchisees with the organizational and financial capabilities to open a minimum of five locations no smaller than 10,000 square feet over a two- to three-year period. Franchisees should have a minimum net worth of $1 million and a minimum of $350,000 in liquid assets per location. The initial investment ranges from $650,000 – $1.7 million per location with a $50,000 initial franchise fee. Qualified franchisees should have at least three years of outside sales management experience and two years of community marketing experience with a sales team of at least five people. Franchisees must also be committed to uphold operational and image standards of the Regus brand.Regus will work closely with and assist its franchisees in finding and designing locations. Franchisees will benefit from the customer service Regus is known for, as well as provide access to platforms including marketing, sales and IT.
