ZC I think in three years time the debt reduction will have a considerable effect. I bought these shares on a 25 year view.

Really think we will see activist investors calling for a break up of this company Needs to be modernised and the assets properly monetised

Too much debt, they should shelve the dividend for a couple of years, but too much corporate pride...

I think MARS share price response maybe reflects a poor comparison with recent GNK update which was significantly better for pubs sales growth, although MARS did better in brewing. Marstons indicated margins in line with last year, GNK didn't comment and results may show some of the volume was bought by lowering prices. The debt still weights heavily on MARS, .2Bn reduction by 2023 to 1.2Bn is hardly rapid debt reduction, the risk of adverse conditions by then causing serious pain like dividend cut or distressed disposals must be weighing on MARS. GNK (36 Wk) MARS (16 wk) LFL +3.2% +1.4% XMas +10.9% +5.7% Brewing +1.8% +3.2%

LEST ANYONE FORGETS. This is verbatim what Marston's told shareholders and the market just two months ago with the Prelims on 21st November 2018:- "Dividend cover is 1.9 times and our dividend policy remains to target progressive increases in the dividend at a cover of around 2 times in the medium term." "Progressive increases" in dividend in the medium-term. Yeah, right.... Just eight weeks later and it's already a very different story of just maintaining the dividend. How quickly things change. The question for me is if in two months, Marston's have gone from declaring a dividend policy of "progressive increases" to a policy of "maintaining the dividend at the current level during this period", how much faith can you put in what they say? Can you rule out the possibility that they won't actually reduce the dividend in the current uncertain outlook? I know what I think. Good Luck All ALL IMO. DYOR. QP

Disappointing. Feels like the dividend, although safe for now, is hanging by a thread..

exel , I'll be honest I've not factored that in in but I was only looking generally at it. I'll get calculator out when we have some numbers, Corp Tax say about £ 20m ish a Year, it doesn't leave a lot of scope for much else but profits will be higher going forward due to aquisitions they have made over the last couple of years, no doubt they will be looking to make cost savings from acquired businesses

CI. I don’t think those results are disappointing. They have decided (correctly imho)to reduce debt. They plan to maintain a very generous dividend while so doing. Trading is ahead of last year despite a very well reported difficult trading environment. What’s not to like?

For the last 5 years, or more, I have quizzed on the debt at that AGM. Findlay and the Board have been in denial. It has now bit then on the bum.

If they reduce debt by 200M and continue to pay a dividend of 150M over the 3 Years, they must be expecting to be pushing a Profit of about 120M per Year give or take a few million

I'm good with the update. I don't mind having a stock Yielding 7.5% and if they continue buiding the value behind the business and reducing debt the Sp whilst not flying will be ticking up over the course of time.

MARS sales growth are not keeping up with inflation and still not reducing debt enough quickly enough. The remuneration of the directors needs to be readjusted down to fit flat future returns.
