thetwentiestrader: These are very fair points, and as you say the 17% holding does allude to the CEO being aligned with Lok Shareholders. However from an optics perspective it doesn’t look great. I also understand the directors have ownership in other sites - so will be interesting to see future transactions unfold.

grabster: RNS Number : 2125O Lok'nStore Group PLC 08 February 2021 ("Lok'nStore", the "Company", "We" or the "Group") Pre-close trading update "Strong revenue and occupancy growth and expanding new store pipeline" Lok'nStore, the fast-growing AIM listed self-storage company, is pleased to provide the following update on trading in the half year to 31 January 2021. Under government COVID-19 rules, self-storage businesses have been designated as essential services and are permitted to operate during the lockdowns. We provide storage solutions for many customers in essential services including health care, emergency services and food distribution. Self-storage is an increasingly integral part of the logistics system within the UK with around 32% of our business coming from commercial customers, many of whom are relying on access to their storage space to continue their essential businesses during lockdown. We have adopted stringent social distancing and hygiene measures to ensure the safety of our customers and staff while continuing to provide this key service. Trading in the first half FY2021 was strong with self-storage revenue up 11.0% on the previous year. At 31 January 2021 unit occupancy was up 24.7%, a gain of 175,897 sq. ft over 12 months. This is a forward indicator of accelerating revenue growth. Occupancy as a percentage of current lettable area was up from 67.1% last year to 81.6% this year. Price per sq. ft. of occupied space was down 2.6% compared to the same date twelve months ago. In supporting our customers, we have chosen not to implement price increases to our existing customers throughout the COVID-19 period. We continue to make significant progress on our new store pipeline of 11 sites and we announced a detailed property pipeline update to the market last Tuesday 2 February. Work has commenced at four of these which are all scheduled to open by the end of 2021 or early 2022. This pipeline of new stores will add considerable momentum to sales and earnings growth over the medium term. More sites for further new store openings are being actively targeted. Interim results will be announced on Monday 26 April 2021. Andrew Jacobs, Executive Chairman of Lok'nStore said: "Since the pandemic started, all of our teams have worked tirelessly to keep our stores open while keeping themselves and our customers safe. As an essential part of the local communities in which we operate, our people have been helping new and existing customers through extremely difficult times. I am proud of, and often humbled by their efforts". "I am pleased to report that occupancy grew by an unprecedented 175,897 sq.ft. up 25% over the previous year and this will feed into further revenue and profit growth in the second half, and into next year. "We have also made significant progress on our new store pipeline, whilst remaining conservatively geared, with four of these currently under construction opening by early 2022. This pipeline of new stores will add considerable momentum to sales and earnings growth in the future." The information communicated in this announcement contains inside information -Ends-

thewheeliedealer: Hi all, My mate Peter @Conkers3 and myself did a ‘Twin Petes Investing’ Podcast a few days before Xmas and part of our discussion includes LOK which I bought myself the other day. We also chatted about loads of other Stocks and Ideas for research. We discussed the outlook for Markets and the most likely roadmap for the next couple of months, and as usual a fair bit of educational stuff with regards to Investing. Anyway, if you use Youtube, Apple, Audioboom, Overcast or Spotify you can find it under the 'Conkers Corner' Channel (you want Podcast TPI 38) and you can find it on Soundcloud at the link below. I hope you enjoy it and find it useful, we try to keep them light and they are totally unscripted, not like all the stuffy financial fodder you are probably more used to !! Season’s Greetings !!

thewheeliedealer: Hi all, I joined the LOK club today at long last after lusting after the darned thing for years but seemingly never getting around to it. Anyway, I have gone for a small Starter Position so far but expect to be adding as Cash comes available(I have 4 Takeovers on the go at the moment, which is nice) and assuming circumstances don't rule it out (I have some health niggles that are pee*ing me off) then I intend to write a full blog about LOK which always helps me build my conviction and ensure I hang on for the big money rather than chopping in and out like all these Trader types. Anyway, I wrote a bit on my 'Trades' page today on my website and if you follow me on Twitter then no doubt I will be talking more about LOK as things develop. Cheers, WD @wheeliedealer

jeff h: finnCap "...Target price raised from 768p to 865p. Our updated target price of 865p is calculated applying the same 56% premium to historic NAV at which peers Big Yellow and Safestore are currently valued. We continue to believe a premium is justified by the growth potential in an undersupplied market where a track record of securing, developing and growing stores is key...." Peel Hunt:_ Peel Hunt has upgraded self-storage group Lok’nStore (LOK) after it delivered impressive full-year results against a difficult backdrop. Analyst Sebastian Isola lifted the stock from ‘add’ to ‘buy’ with a target price of 650p on the stock, which closed 4.8%, or 25p, up at 550p after the annual report showed ‘resilience’. ‘Lok’nStore has delivered an impressive set of results. Cash earnings are up 12%, well ahead of our estimate and the well-covered dividend increases once again by 1p,’ he said. Isola upgraded his forecasts as trading has been positive since the financial year-end but the shares still trade at a 6% discount to net asset value, and ‘a material discount to peers’. ‘[The shares] enjoy the potential for very significant earnings progression via the growing pipeline of new landmark stores,’ he said.

grabster: When collecting my car from garage yesterday, I asked how the newly opened storage facility opposite was looking (it isn't a LOK one). "Quite busy" was response, "Three of the units have been taken by someone stockpiling for the virus scare, and those are now full." Can't help wondering if the same kind of activity might be raising storage demand elsewhere? I don't know if the someone is an individual looking to exploit demand by selling at raised prices, or a shop owner. The units are all 160 sq.ft. containers at £99 pcm, which must appeal as affordable short-term warehousing for these kinds of situation. I have to visit the garage again today so will take a further look.

cheshire man: MIDAS SHARE TIPS UPDATE: Storage giant has growth plans all locked up By Joanne Hart for The Mail on Sunday Published: 01:56, 17 November 2019 | Updated: 01:56, 17 November 2019 Directors’ deals can be instructive. When senior management sell shares, that can ring alarm bells. When they buy, it suggests they have confidence in their company’s future. Earlier this month, Charles Peal, a director at self-storage business Lok’nStore, bought almost 100,000 shares at £5.64 each, a purchase worth £550,000. At the beginning of this year, he forked out another £260,000 on Lok’nStore stock, when the price was £4.66. Peal seems to be a smart operator. Lok’nStore shares closed at £6.45 last week so he has already benefited handsomely from his purchases. The share price advance is timely but also well deserved. Full year results to July 31 – released just before Peal’s latest purchase – showed a 10 per cent increase in revenues to £17 million, with profits up 11 per cent to £5 million and the dividend 9 per cent ahead at 12p. Lok’nStore founder Andrew Jacobs seeks out sites in prominent positions and makes sure they are large and colourful so would-be users know where to find them Brokers forecast further growth this year and beyond, with sales, profits and dividends all tipped to deliver robust gains. Lok’nStore has 34 stores but it has a pipeline of 14 more, well located in busy towns and cities across the UK. These are likely to prove popular. Households use self-storage when moving home, downsizing or even to keep stuff they cannot bear to throw away. Businesses use self-storage too, particularly smaller firms looking for somewhere convenient to store stock. Lok’nStore founder Andrew Jacobs seeks out sites in prominent positions and makes sure they are large and colourful so would-be users know where to find them. Occupancy rates are rising and the company increasingly builds its own properties so they are ideally suited to customers’ needs Midas verdict: Midas verdict: Midas recommended Lok’nStore in 2015, when the shares were £3.07. They have more than doubled since then but there should be more gains to come. Peal has been a director since 2007 and clearly believes the stock has potential. Jacobs founded the business in 1995 and still owns 18 per cent of the shares. Brokers believe they should rise to nearly £7. A strong hold.

galeforce1: Kreature - you have to think about how much it would cost/ how long it would take / how difficult to would be / etc, to assemble LOK's portfolio from scratch. The problems of slow planning permission decisions, very high land costs, shortage of good sites, etc. all conspire to create very high barriers to entry in this business. It's taken the CEO Andrew Jacobs over 20 years to build LOK. And this is a guy who clearly knows what he's doing. It's also a sector that's very likely to see consolidation. LOK is not the biggest operator of self-storage units in the UK. A bid could happen at some point. For me, these things justify LOK's high rating.
