Good post #hyden, very much my thoughts. They've got some strong niche brands as well although ability of management not clear. On my watchlist but not ready to dip my wick even at these prices... restructuring may like you said curtail the dividend so more downside here before it looks like good value.

For what it's worth, I think that today's fall is over done. That is not to say that the price won't fall any further of course but it is now on my watch list. The bull points: It is predominantly an online retailer with a very limited high street presence (a total of 18 stores which generate just ~2% of revenue). Development of the modern IT platform is well advanced and on track - both time and budget. It has an advantage over some other retailers in that it is an authorised provider of credit which may help insulate the business in the event of a downturn / recession. Cost pressures are likely to ease over the summer as the double running costs of the IT estate ease (all brands to move onto the new platform by the end of the summer), and as the company benefits from FX tailwinds. The pension scheme is in surplus! The bear points: a £40m customer redress scheme will hamper free cash flow over the short term and may limit dividend progression (the HY18 results have given no indication that the dividend will be cut / axed). Margin erosion through the company's stated target to absorb cost increases in order to grow market share (but this actually appears to be a winning formula so far). Consumers are increasingly shifting discretionary spend away from clothing and footwear. Deterioration in the quality of the loan book (but this does not appear to be an issue so far). I am not yet a holder and I will watch with interest before possibly stepping a toe in. :-)

Reinforced a strong downward trend but quite a wide trading range. I like some of the up size brands but what are management like here?

MRF, the separate brands are not really different businesses. Same IT system pulling goods from same warehouse, most likely. Just different marketing per customer segment.

Here are some interesting facts from this company. FIRST HALF RESULTS Group revenue grew by 5.6%, helped by 7.5% increase in their product revenue division. Their financial services division grew by 1.1% but was able to increase gross margin by 56.5%. Meanwhile, their product division will see margin fall 1.9% to 54%. Financial statements Despite higher revenues, N Brown saw adjusted net profit fell to £21m from £25.1m. The company reported higher exceptional items of £54.9m, up from £10m last year. This was due to a £40m writedown on their financing division because of an investigation from the FCA. It involves selling certain insurance products which were provided by a third-party insurance between 2006 and 2014. Meanwhile, store closures resulted in costs of £13.8m. Balance sheet One item looks out of place trades debtors. This is because debtors’ days is over 200 and the product isn’t overly expensive. In fact, N Brown merged their finance division and their product division together meaning loans lent to customers to pay for their products takes a while to pay off. Here is N brown receivables: http://bit.ly/2z249tc Meanwhile, net borrowing has risen to £305m from £290.9m. Guidance for FY 2018 Here is the good news: - Financial Services gross margin +100bps to +200bps, compared to flat to +100bps previously. Here is the bad news: - Product gross margin -120bps to -70bps, compared to -120bps to -20bps previously. - Group operating costs up 4.5% to 5.5%, compared to 3.5% to 5.5% previously. - Net debt £325m to £335m, compared to £300m to £320m previously, reflecting the increased cash flow impacts of exceptional costs, together with the growth of our customer loan book -Exceptional costs of an additional c.£2m in the second half, as a result of our ongoing tax disputes with HMRC. Market Valuation Shares in N Brown has battled back from below £2 to £3.50. When it came to their valuation PE is trading close to their historical average of 13 times. Dividend is yield at 4% with growth in payout dropping to 5%. The dividend payout ratio is around 50% of earnings. Earnings yield is around 7%. Final Thoughts It looks like N Brown is experiencing rising costs from their product division. Also, the shares recovered from their lows and the half-year results and guidance won’t inspire further appreciation. At best, the share price would consolidate at around £3.
