nige co: Net...."ITV will not be allowed to go into overseas hands but I could see a merger with BT as a long shot possibility." On what grounds Net would ITV not be able to be taken over by a foreign company? I don't see there being any problem. Regarding BT merging with ITV, BT carries far too much debt £17billion to be able to afford ITV, not forgetting BT's fibre build costing £12 billion. I don't see that happening anytime soon, I wish it would I own both.
nige co: Bob, "My opinion is that Netflix , Amazon or Disney will scoop up ITV in the next year or so, but there are also smaller players running their slide rules over it." Who would be the small players looking at ITV Bob? I agree that Liberty have had plenty of opportunities to make a move on ITV, especially after LG sold cable assets for cash to Vodafone. I'm not sure any potential predator thinks that when the share price was on its knees at 50p that they they had a chance of picking up ITV on the cheap. I'm not too sure that it make any difference as to what the share price is valued at on the stock market? The BOD at ITV will take advice regarding what the asset valuation is and would rightfully turn down any offer that doesn't reflect this minus debt. I personally don't think that ITV will receive a bid over 200p unless we have white knight situation. I hope to be proved wrong. My stab in the dark would be 180p per share offer.
nige co: I agree Corby, I think we that will wake up one morning to find that someone has made a takeover bid for ITV, I just don't know when that morning will be. All I know is ITV have a large amount of content that a large streamer would like to obtain for as little money as possible. Will this lead to a bun fight, I think so if someone makes a lowball bid, others may well join the bun fight. Put it this way, I have no intentions of missing out, I intend holding ITV indefinitely if needs be. If I had to pick a potential predator the obvious one would be Liberty Global who already own 9.9% of ITV. But knowing LG's John Malone, he likes a bargain. He may make the first move, but someone else with deeper pockets may take the prize in the end. JMO.
nige co: PE vs Industry: ITV is good value based on its PE Ratio (17.4x) compared to the GB Media industry average (34.8x). PE vs Market: ITV is good value based on its PE Ratio (17.4x) compared to the UK market (24.7x). Https://
nige co: If I'm not mistaken didn't Malone say that ITV were too expensive when the ITV share price was around 190p? I guess that he would say that only if he was interested in making a bid. When the dividend does return this will further strengthen the share price. This makes me think that any potential predator will make a move before watching the share price return to 160p plus. I'm happy to hold, I do believe that ITV will receive a bid, I just don't know when, this summer would be my guess.
stag6: Carolyn McCall is a smart CEO, she did me as an Easyjet shareholder proud and her slow but sure changes at ITV were working well only to have the virus get us. How many times has it been reported that Britbox isn't competing with Netflix, Amazon, Disney or any other streamer. To compare Britbox streaming to companies that rise and fall in value on Wall St in a session more in money than ITV's whole Mkt Cap is just plain ignorance. My money is on ITV to return a bigger gain from here than Netflix. ITV @ £1.22p v NFX @ $520 or at £375 per share or 307 times greater. Britbox losing money, well as every forecast stated that it would, that is no surprise. If you want to see losing money, cast your eyes on Netflix, it is drowning in debt ITV at 120p is still at a bombed out price. In real terms anyone picking these up at these prices, are getting a whole lot of discount. Forget Britbox it's a small part of a big equation...ITV have studios booked up until 2023, more viewers in the UK than any streamer and to me the most important factor the company's Mkt is so cheap it is a sitting duck for predators. Barring anything like WW3 starting, or that USA bubble bursting for an undisclosed reason, ITV is a BUY. Fill your boots!
verulamium: Watched a bit of ITV in the last couple of days, as I was surprised how well things have held up. Not tempted to buy in though. The management direction is completely at odds with its viewer demographic. The BBC and Channel 4 can go woke without going broke thanks to licence fee/government income (and the C4 audience was always woke anyway) - ITV really can't. Say what you like about Piers Morgan - yesterday's programme was good viewing, today's was as dull as ditchwater. They're also up against a strong Channel 5 at the moment, not to mention the streaming platforms of course. Most of the daytime programming still looks like it's for bored housewives, but they must be a shrinking demographic (however woke ITV are, they don't seem to have spotted that women have brains and work - would Carolyn McCall actually watch any of the rubbish they put out in daytime?). What audience ITV do attract in the day can't be a dream for advertisers (though things do get a bit better when the quizzes kick in in the afternoon) It's one thing to let wokeness infect your current programmes, but what hope for Britbox when they start to apply the current rules to the archives? Little Britain's already gone, League of Gentlemen's days are numbered, The Sweeney will be gone soon. When there are no programmes left, will they just turn out the lights? One of the reasons for having a streaming platform is to let people see archive programmes that wouldn't be made now, but if the curators start to apply the new rules to the old programmes, there'll be nothing left. So basically, management has to understand its audience and give them what they want, or to know that there's a new and different audience and be able to attract them. I can't see the current ITV regime doing either, so I won't be buying.
nige co: Ivan... "my feeling is that Liberty will pounce before then !" Ivan, it makes me wonder if there is a potential ITV predator waiting? Now that the results are out, will they be happy to make their move? We can all speculate of cause, I would think that they're not going to get ITV any cheaper than now, I can only see the ITV share price recovering further this year. Any bid now would have to be in the region of 160p a 30% premium, if they wait until ITV share price reaches 160p we would be agreeing with The Naked Trader Robbie Burns 200p plus takeover price.
ivanborsky: Hi team, here's the snippet from the FT, I will be back here later this evening. ITV Studios is set to double its business with streaming platforms this year, as the production arm of ITV tries to recover from the pandemic and adjust to radical changes in the global television market. Julian Bellamy, the head of ITV Studios, told the Financial Times that 2021 would mark a “step change” in its business, with its American division for scripted drama forecast to generate a third of its revenues from streaming services such as Amazon, Apple and Netflix. The expansion of ITV Studios has been an important part of the push by ITV, which publishes full-year results on Tuesday, to reduce reliance on its UK free-to-air channels. Studios makes about 8,000 hours of television through 55 production houses, accounting for more than a third of the FTSE company’s revenues for the first half of 2020. The shift to streaming reflects how the market has transformed for production groups such as ITV Studios, which has thrived on selling hit formats such as The Voice and Love Island to traditional television broadcasters around the world. On the sales side, Bellamy described the business as “increasingly diversified” towards streaming. “You can see the scale of transformation in the US market. We are seeing a lot of activity,” he said. “But in pretty much every market we are in, we are seeing commissions and development from streaming platforms. “We feel very confident, and we look at it regularly, that the global demand for content will continue to grow at around 3-5 per cent a year,” he added. With its traditional focus being unscripted television, ITV Studios had to re-orientate in recent years to position itself for the boom in demand for high-end dramas. That shift has included partnerships with Jason Blum’s Blumhouse Television, the maker of The Loudest Voice, and Nicola Shindler, the producer behind It’s a Sin, and Italy’s Cattleya, which produced Suburra. Notable projects with streaming services include the sci-fi thriller Snowpiercer for TNT and Netflix, 10-Year-Old Tom for HBO Max, and the aerobics drama Physical for Apple. The coronavirus emergency hit the ITV Studios business, forcing it to suspend the vast majority of 230 shows that were being filmed in early 2020. Revenue declined 17 per cent to £630m during that period, with £397m coming from external sales. Adjusted operating profits for the six months to August almost halved to £62m, partly because of the increased costs of resuming productions during the pandemic. Bellamy declined to say whether the pick-up in streaming business was making up for the pressures on spending from advertising-funded, traditional television. “You can see it is a challenging environment, particularly last year,” he said. “But never underestimate the power and resilience of free to air platforms .201;. . [some] bring 8, 9, 10 million people on to a platform in a 60 minute window. No streaming platform in the world that can do that.” Bellamy also stood by ITV’s decision to invest in Jeffrey Katzenberg’s failed short-form streaming venture Quibi. “We invest in things, and hopefully most of them will come off, but not all of them will. And that’s fine,” he said. “If I had my time again, I think we would still do it, because I still think it was such a brave and original and daring idea.”
nige co: Stan, the only way ITV would receive a takeover bid of 200p plus with the current share price at 116p is if there was a bidding war. I do agree with Robbie regarding the longer anyone waits the more expensive ITV will become. ITV will recover to pre Covid price, at least 160p with or without a takeover, once we get to 160p, Robbie is right, at this point a bid would have to be 200p plus. I do think that ITV will be taken over at some point, I just don't know when. ITV are only a small fish in a large pond. One of the big players will take them at some point. ITV must look attractive to a cash rich company. Today ITV's Market Cap is £4.71B. @£6.5B would give a share price of 161p. I think that someone would be happy to pay that for all the assets that ITV own. Time will tell. I'm happy to hold.
