At 103.2 at the moment and as we can see from the chart above resistance is at 104. It looks to me like someone is collecting stock as cheap as possible and trying not to move the price. Bit by bit they keep having to nudge it up a tad. Maybe maybe this time we can sustain an attack on 104 without falling back to 100 first.

rofl. Every time it gets it's head a couple of three points away from 100p we start to get enthusiastic looking for the breakout and the move to 120p. Interim results due on 15th May. Will that help or will the likely dividend of 2.7p payable near the end of May push it back down to 100 again. I have no idea but it is nice to see it moving up these last few days.

That’s 40 minutes you were not drinking. Buying back shares at this yield is better short term.

Read Notes 19 and 20 in the Report & Accounts. Securitised debt £781.1m, broken down in tranches, the last of which expires in 2035. Each tranche has a step up, based on 3 month LIBOR plus a fixed percentage, and each step up is triggered, at a fixed date, written into the agreement when the debt was taken out. The debt is secured on the pub estate, with restrictive covenants. Other borrowings amount to £799.6m Total debt £1580.7m (£1532.7m 2017) Interest paid on the securitised debt was £46.2m = 5.892% pa

Spacecake. I've read the accounts. Much of the debt isn't fixed rate/long dated swaps. I'm not sure what point you are trying to make. Are you suggesting low interest rates is a bad thing for MARS?

CC2014 How much of the "debt pile" has a fixed interest/ coupon rate, have you checked ?

I am puzzled. It is clear from the bond markets that interest rates are going to stay lower for longer than anyone expected. This, will be good for MARS given their debt pile as means the interest bill isn't going up and a longer timeframe to get the debt pile in order. Yet, the share price is still stuck. Falling again albeit slowly if anything. Answers on a postcard please?

redartbmud - im glad youre pleased with the new chairman. I didn't take to him too much at the AGM. He made great play of being new, listening to institutional analysist/shareholders and directing a new course due to the poor share performance of late. However, I've not forgotten the shares fell sharply on the day and haven't yet recovered. I can only conclude his medicine hasn't been taken well by the patient. Coupled with not taking ownership of the AGM timing/lunch debacle which was changed 'following feedback' according to HIS AGM invite, I'm none too impressed.

Jeffian - selling off non core assets will as you suggest be largely profit neutral in the short turn due to the loss of income. However, it does/should improve the debt metrics meaning refinancing should be less costly. Also should help the rating of the business in potential investors eyes. I dont think it's even as good as the modest debt reduction appears to be, it's a token gesture but one in the right direction.

Yes, there is a remuneration issue and at the same time the board whinging about the rise of the living wage for the many low paid employees.
