McColl’s roll-out of the new Safeway brand from Morrisons is well underway. Last week we (IGD) visited a number of McColls's stores in Hertfordshire to review progress and see how the range is being executed. Focus on fresh: The Safeway brand has had the biggest impact on McColl’s fresh categories. The retailer benefits from Morrisons vertically integrated supply chain which enables it to deliver quality private label products at value prices, boosting McColl’s chilled, produce, meat, dairy and ready meal ranges. Expanded ranges: McColl’s deal with Morrisons allows the retailer to offer customers a wider range of private label products across more categories. In ambient, the Safeway products from Morrisons provide two benefits to McColl's. Firstly, lower price points are possible through this value private label offering than with previous ranges, and secondly the wider range of private label products available enables McColl’s to range a private label product for the first time in some categories. For example, McColl’s shoppers can now buy a private label microwave rice product, at 89p. Exclusive to McColl’s: Announced last year, the launch of the Safeway range follows extensive product development and testing by Morrisons to create a high-quality offer that is relevant for convenience stores. The relaunch forms part of Morrisons plan to grow its wholesale business and support its growing franchise operations in the convenience channel. McColl’s will have exclusive access to the brand for 12 months. Currently, 400 McColl’s stores have the Safeway brand, almost a quarter of the retailer’s estate. Another 300 former Palmer & Harvey supplied stores stock ambient Safeway branded products.

You're not the first to say that but thank you, anyway. Back on-topic, Tesco led the recent rise, with Sainsbury and Morrisons lifted in its wake. In the absence of anything else, I'd guess that McColls is following the sector rise.

My the end of this year, most of McColl's stores will be supplied by Morrison's through the reintroduction of the Safeway brand. It seems reasonable to me, with out to huge a financial out lay, Morrison's could become a major convenience store player if they bought out McColl's and called the stores Safeway in a similar way that Tesco's has 'One Stop Shop'.

McColl's Retail Group transitioning into a significant fresh food business: Simon Fuller, chief financial officer of McColl's Retail Group tells Proactive's Andrew Scott the future for them lies in being a bigger fresh food business "The big transformation for us now is to go from what was originally a newsagent business to a convenience business and now to a food business". "That's really the next stage of our evolution". Fuller adds: "We're in a growing part of the market ... if you look at the cyclical trend it tends to be that convenience stores are slightly more immune - smaller basket sizes and we tend to be a little more resilient to the ups and downs in the market".

My advice is to ignore brokers. Historical analyses show they are right 50% of the time so you might as well toss a coin. I sold up a while back when trend broke back down

Analysts at Peel Hunt cautioned investors against focusing too much on the supply problems caused by the collapse of P&H, adding: "We think this is purely one-off and ignores the bigger, rosy picture.” In a note to clients, analysts at Liberum Capital noted that the fall in current LFL sales was well below their forecast for a 0.4% decline. They said: "We expect this to see consensus forecasts come down towards an EBITDA range of £50m-51m (vs. c.£54m currently)." But, the analysts added: "That said, we believe this short-term impact needs to considered in the light of overall strategic progress being made by the group, including the transition to Morrisons as its single supplier over 2018. Whilst there may be some disappointment today, it is not wholly unexpected and we maintain our buy on the long-term view.”

Consumers name top convenience store: The full Which? poll rating was: M&S Simply Food (69%), Little Waitrose (62%), Best One (52%), Tesco Express (52%), Sainsbury’s Local, Co-operative Food (50%), One Stop (49%), Costcutter (48%), Nisa (45%), Londis (44%), Budgens (43%), Premier (43%), Spar (42%), and McColl’s (37%). Alex Neill, managing director of Which? home products and services, said: “Convenience store sales are booming and these smaller shops are becoming a bigger feature of people’s everyday lives as more us use them to top up our bigger supermarket or online shop. “Our survey show shoppers believe M&S Simply Food and Little Waitrose have raised the bar with tidy stores and a great range of fresh products, leaving rivals like McColl’s looking poor value for money.” However, McColl’s is due to refit 125 stores this year and a new range of food under the Safeway brand is being introduced.

Kamcity - Implications: Key will be how McColl’s handles the seismic changes and consolidation taking place in UK convenience. Suppliers need to anticipate the ‘final’ shape of the sector… …and somehow try to place their McColl’s business in that context. Meanwhile, short term mode might be the best strategy.

Sales grew 19% for the full year and up 28.9% in the quarter helped by the 298 acquired convenience stores. I feel the bad news is McColl’s struggle to grow Like-for-like sales. For the full year, it came in at ONLY 0.1% and, LFL for Q4 is down 1.1% due to bad weather. LFL is important, and grocery businesses should be recovering due to high food inflation, although volume and average basket per customer is unknown. On the whole, the update is mixed, but McColl’s LFL Sales have been negative in the past couple of years. This didn’t deter the share price rising since they made their debut in 2014. It outperformed the other supermarket since then (to see chart, click http://bit.ly/2kp6Ral As well as Net debt rising to £110m or a-third of total assets. I feel the shares will trade sideways for the next three months. We wait for the annual results next year. In the meantime, I have compiled 10 things about McColl’s that an investor should know.

Nisa offers short term supply contract to McColl's after collapse of Palmer and Harvey: Starting on 4 December, the contract will cover those McColl’s stores that were previously supplied by the collapsed wholesaler, Palmer and Harvey. In a statement, Nisa said it had moved “at pace” to mobilise its support while ensuring its existing availability levels will be maintained for all members throughout the Christmas trading period. All of the McColl’s stores previously supplied by Palmer and Harvey will receive ambient stock delivered through existing Nisa-supplied McColl’s stores for onward transfer by McColl’s teams. Arnu Misra, interim chief executive of Nisa, said: “I’m very pleased that Nisa has been selected by McColl's to further support them at this crucial time. We have a highly flexible distribution model that enables us to scale quickly to members needs and as demand dictates. As a result, we will continue to manage both existing and new members without impacting our traditionally high levels of service, especially over the peak trading period.”

THE co-founder of convenience chain McColl’s has stepped down from the board and cashed in his remaining £33.6 million stake amid speculation that he is set to lead a rescue of grocery wholesaler Palmer & Harvey. James Lancaster, who started the business – then a cigarette vending operation – more than 40 years ago, owned a 28 per cent stake worth £56 million when the company floated on the stock market three years ago. Its shares have jumped from a listing price of 191p and Lancaster sold his remaining 10 per cent holding, or 11 million shares, at 295p. Lancaster said: “It’s the right time for me to stand down. I have every confidence that under the stewardship of the board, McColl’s will continue to thrive.” Lancaster has reportedly been sounded out by private equity group Carlyle, which is working on a takeover of Palmer & Harvey, to become the wholesaler’s non-executive chairman. Cigarettes giant Imperial Brands said last week it was working with other stakeholders to “create a sustainable future for Palmer & Harvey, with whom we have a close trading relationship”. Imperial and rival Japan Tobacco have already provided combined loans of about £60 million. McColl’s declined to comment on Lancaster’s possible move.

Beaufort Securities: Our View: McColl's Q3 performance was strong, with both revenue and LFL sales growth boosting the year-to-date figures. Whilst LFL sales of +0.7% in Q3 has slowed from +1.4% seen in Q2, the latter had benefitted from favourable weather and a weaker comparative (Q2 FY2016: LFL -2.6%, Q3 FY2016: LFL -2.0%). Perhaps more importantly, the LFL performance of recently acquired and converted stores continued to be strong at +2.6% (Q2 FY2016: +3.8%). Looking ahead, the management confirmed that the Group remains on track to achieve full year results in line with its expectations. Having 'refreshed' three convenience stores during the period, the Group said further 20 stores are planned by the end-FY2017. McColl's recently commissioned research with IGD suggests that convenience stores are estimated to continue enjoy strong growth at +18% to £47.1bn over the next five years. This suggests that the demand for convenience is there, becoming increasingly dominated by a smaller number of more sophisticated players that are capable of offering range and buying power that traditional mom-and-pop stores simply cannot. Given its wide and successful experience in identifying and integrating such opportunities amid an inexorable phase of closure and consolidation amongst the UK's highly fragmented base of independents, McColl's can be expected to identify further significant opportunities over the medium-term. The Group's operational scale and customer reach is something that the national supermarkets are also likely to be keen to tap into, in terms of potential mergers and takeovers. Considering this background and recent broker upgrades, share price has increased sufficiently to take the Group's FY2017E and FY2018E P/E multiples to 16.6x and 12.9x, while being accompanied with dividend yields of 3.6% and 3.8%, respectively. This now appears to price in just about all of the near-term excitement and Beaufort accordingly reiterates its Hold recommendation on the Share.
