Half-year Report KCOM Group PLC (KCOM.L) announces its unaudited interim results for the six months ended 30 September 2018. Summary · Group revenue1 declined by 5% · Group EBITDA1 up by 2% · Hull & East Yorkshire continues to perform well and in line with market expectations ― Full-fibre deployment remains on target to be available to 100% of addressable market by March 2019 ― Percentage of broadband customers taking full-fibre continues to increase · Poor performance in national business segments driven by: ― Revenue decline in NNS, due to continuing churn ― Broadly flat revenue in Enterprise reflecting disappointing order intake performance · NNS performance results in non-cash exceptional impairment of goodwill of £32.2 million · Increase in net debt to £108.5 million (1.6x net debt: EBITDA), driven by: ― Capital investment in Hull & East Yorkshire segment ― Material working capital outflow, due to insourcing a managed service arrangement and unwind of deferred revenue balances in Enterprise · Interim dividend of 1.00p (2017: 2.00p), reflecting Board's previously announced decision to revise full year dividend commitment to a minimum of 3.00p per share Graham Sutherland, Chief Executive Officer said, "Despite only joining the business last month, I believe KCOM has considerable skills, assets and capabilities. The full fibre rollout in Hull and East Yorkshire leads the market, provides us with sustainable cash flows and enables the further development of our service offering. However, the current financial performance of our two national businesses is below our expectations, in particular, in National Network Services where we are experiencing high levels of customer churn. In the second half of the year, we will focus on three key priorities - review of our business strategy to identify how we create the best value from KCOM's assets, implementing initiatives to improve business performance and improving transparency through clear metrics on which our progress can be measured. We will be in a position to share outputs from the strategic review in March." Outlook The strong performance in Hull & East Yorkshire is expected to continue during the second half of the year, supported in part by the launch in early December of a new unlimited fibre broadband portfolio for consumer customers. While we have started to take action to address some of the issues in our national segments, we anticipate that the trading performance in Enterprise and National Network Services will remain challenging during the second half of the year and that this will continue into next year. As a business, we are seeking to address these medium-term challenges by reducing cost and complexity at the same time as identifying those opportunities to deliver value from KCOM's assets. The Board believes that the Group has the potential to execute well on those opportunities. The Board previously announced its intention to recommend a minimum full year dividend of 3.00p per share for the current year. more.....

We can only hope that the share price at these levels will attract a buyer takeover.

I'm always amazed, for an entity that is supposed to be forward looking and anticipatory, how the stockmarket reacts so violently to this kind of fairly predictable news. TALK provided a clear blueprint for KCOM's future dividend cut (their shareprice also suffered a violent reaction to the announcement of a dividend cut that had been widely anticipated). Maybe trade-bots cause exaggerated reactions as stop-losses are triggered? Surely it's better to cut the dividend than run the company into oblivion? Everything seems to be on a hair trigger at the moment.

I always considered Kcom a safe if boring stock C'mon, warranty! Haven't you been reading this thread? The potential for something exactly like this has been discussed for months if not years. I got done over on Carrillion and Debenhams, also chasing high dividends, so there's no gloating on my part, none at all. I'm just saying this shouldn't have come as a bolt from the blue for anyone.

Wow, that's some drop and not even a hint from management of the problems accumulating. I always considered Kcom a safe if boring stock with a decent dividend but how wrong was I. Heads have to roll after this.
