Hmmm, seems a little like money for nothing to me. Awarded at nil cost, two years to vest and no conditions attached apart from still be employed by NICL. In round numbers, CEO to pick up ~ £500K in two years, and the rest ~ £50K. Nice work if you can get it.

I assume that these shares will come from Treasury, the ones they bought back last year, otherwise that's a further dilution for the rest of us. Either way just added a few more to my current SB trade.

Might have to wait until half year to see what management are proposing re possible new capital structure and / or distribution of excess cash to shareholders. Would help the shares if they hurried up a little, and announced what the plan is soonish. Especially if share buy back and cancellation, from whoever has been wanting to sell recently.

I suspect that there is an "overhang" in the NICL market. Business updates good, demonstrable progress, strong cash flow, new CFO and intention to review capital structure and return of excess cash to shareholders; yet the share price is lacklustre / weak.

Two things strike me :

1) Previous merger of two fund management co's, which led to a 5%+ holding in NICL, maybe a natural reduction to balance their new combined overall portfolio has been / is underway.

2) A Nichol family member left the business last autumn, remember he ran the OoH business. As a family member he held a significant number of shares. Maybe he is reducing his holding now he has left the business.

Now, this is just speculation on my part, as I have no direct knowledge, but it does feel like there has been a persistent selling pressure over many months.

£67M CASH!
They should either add a bolt on that is accretive to EPS or give a special dividend.

Results today.

Revenue +3.5% to £171m
Adjusted PBT +8.7% to £27m
Actual PBT +75% to £24m
Adjusted PBT margin 15.1% to 15.9%
Actual PBT margin 8.4% to 14.2%
Cash £67m

Gross margin fell from 43.1% to 42.3%, reflecting “a change in sales mix within our operating units and our decision to pass on cost inflation only”.

"2023 was a year of strong progress and execution for Nichols, as the Packaged business delivered another year of growth underpinned by the Vimto brand, and benefits from the newly streamlined OoH business were delivered earlier than anticipated. The Group delivered a very strong performance in international markets driven by strong market penetration across existing and new territories in Africa and the Middle East. Innovation remained a critical growth driver and we have an exciting pipeline of new products planned for 2024."

Just about everyone by the look of it.

964p - 998p and the 1 share AT 'buy' @ 998p signal has just appeared.

May as well dump mine before it disappears up it's own @rse. This has been a very disappointing holding.

Must admit, I've started pulling out of the UK.


"Small investors pull money out of UK stock market at record pace"


Small investors are yanking money out of the UK stock market at a record pace, industry figures are poised to reveal.

Trade body the Investment Association is finalising its figures for 2023, which seem sure to be the worst ever for outflows from UK funds.

Around £25 billion has been taken out of the UK stock market in the last two years alone, which partly explains why London shares have much more lowly valuations than rivals in the US and elsewhere.

This comes as the London stock market struggles to attract floats of big companies, which are heading to New York instead.
