IF they seek to raise arond £500 and that is an IF, you are looking at some savage equity dilution.
They won't be the only pubco looking to repair the balance sheet via an issue of equity but to my mind there's a serious problem about investing more capital to try to solve a revenue problem, particularly as there's currently no end in sight. It would be like trying to fill a bath without a plug.
I have a thought that given Lewis and Magnier own 55% and only Standard Life is on the register, they are very happy to have a RI at any price underwritten by Lewis and Magnier to efectively take over the company at a discount. Given they need an AGM before they can launch an dthey are insolvent in 10 weeks and don't even seem to have started their process, unless they have a cunning plan they are cutting it very fine. I agree with others. No idea why this is still trading above 200p
Does trimming costs include furloughing the Directors, or are they still on full pay?
I think it’s amazing the share price has held up this well, take the chance while you can would be my thoughts
I don't think a cap raise will be a disaster, it won't be a hige dilution like IAG RR or HMSN probably a 1 for 4 at around 200 will give them 250m gbp which is more than enough to fund for the next 12 months including current cash , once full able to open will return to printing cash .....
Most of their premises are owned on a freehold basis. Many have large car parks and most are in fantastic locations. Despite all this and great food they have not paid a dividend for years. In place of that they give a book of 12 vouchers every year that give discount of 20% off your bill. On an average bill of £60 that's £12 saved. This encourages shareholders to be customers too. You only have to own 1 share to get the annual booklet. Trouble is that the share price has gone nowhere for years. When they can open again a rocket needs to be placed under management to start expanding their offer with investment in accommodation in suitable places. Also shareholders need a better return linked to the size of their holding. To give an annual discount of 20% for the price of one share is ridiculous.
Struggling to understand why the equity value is as high as it is given they are insolvent in 2 months. Surely any equity raise will have to be at a massive discount, like sub 100p. The only value in today’s equity is goodwill. At a steady state 400m ebitda, ev should be around 3bn. That’s 2022 value at best. Net debt was around 2bn. Add in more cash burn and probably closer to 2.2 so leaving equity value excluding solvency risk at 800m, which is below today’s market cap. Add in solvency risk and the fact that new equity is invested in cash burn and I am really surprised that mab isn’t trading today at around 160p with the rights prices around or below 100
I will start building a position here again having sold at 250 GLA
TBH in this market with a new lockdown with no end date to keep holding here with a TU due was a brave move.
I’m glad your out but I wouldn’t call it happy days, other poor sods are still in and most will be pi’s like us, I wouldn’t touch these now until rights issue details are announced, it’s going to need £500m or more to be going concern and that may be a bridge to far
Happy days I sold out at 235 on Monday.Will look to buy back in as MAB will do v well when things normalise as there will be less competition and loads of people wanting to eat out. GLA
csm, with respect and given their debt, what did you expect as we enter a third lockdown?. They won't be the last to require a cash raise.
Well that is quite worrying, out of money to pay the bills within two to three months, wtf are they thinking saying they need an equity raise, your suppose to announce the terms at the same time, these are going to get shafted today after that as no-one will want to hold wondering what the rights issue price and terms could be, I have been annoyed at these, they were well run when everything was rosy, but it’s like they have froze in the headlights, they have some amazing size plots they could have sold to bring money in, they do amazing food and could have offered takeaway like other pubs near me have done and are doing very well at, let’s face it the food is much better than many takeaways and at least they could have been bringing something in
Trading update tomorrow morning. Obviously refers to the period prior to this week's total lockdown (up till Xmas) - but will carry some comment on the situation now? (Or play safe by avoid doing so?)
definite growth / recovery potential after Covid19 watch the youtube
I would have thought this would be heading back to under £2 again, in early Jan if not before, if an extended lockdown or similar is announced for after Xmas
I'll drink to that. Looks good at this exact second - no idea about the next second though.
Snow tomorrow and week end.Will be nice to be sitting in a pub, with a glass or two and Week End papers and a "substantial" meal.Pubs will have a fantastic December in allowed areas.Good momentum sector
Pubs opened today.....
