disneydonald: Well, I decided to add a few more at 12.21p today, whilst the spread was narrow (for NICL that is). See how we go. Off to buy a delicious Vimto cheesecake now :-)
disneydonald: Pretty decent results from A G Barr. They say recovery in OoH channels going well, notwithstanding some supply chain friction, so no reason to assume anything much different with NICL OoH recovery. Just need to wait until next trading update for confirmation.In the meantime, if the spread ever narrows to 10p or 20p (which it does occasionally) maybe time to add a few more.
philanderer: Chief Executive Officer, purchased 4,366 ordinary shares of 10p each in the Company ("Ordinary Shares") on 21 September 2021, at a price of 1,374 pence per Ordinary Share.
disneydonald: Watching the daily trade totals, seems that there has been a bias to selling recently. Given the difficulty of entering or exiting NICL in any meaningful amount, maybe we are witnessing an investor steadily reducing their holding and consequently putting downward pressure on the share price
disneydonald: Well, I'm a little disappointed that the share price has not picked up since interims. One problem is of course, that the liquidity is poor and it is difficult to build a position, or for that matter exit a position. I raised this question at the Investor Meet webcast, and the CFO just responded with a short ad lib response, which suggests he has no plans to increase liquidity at the mo. Even if the family do not want to sell any of their shares to improve liquidity (and I guess they don't), then we could look at a capital restructure to issue 5 for 1, or 10 for one share split. Whilst this does not impact overall balance sheet, it would help to increase the daily volume, reduce the spread and in turn allow more auto trades, rather than off-book trades.
disneydonald: Yeah, I got the invitation from the Investor Meet people. I hold VLX and they use Investor Meet as well. Looking up re communications for NICL, usually they say nowt ! Maybe now that the family have representation on the Board, they are supportive of promoting NICL. I guess if there was any bad news the new management team (CEO and CFO) wouldn't take the hot seat next week.
disneydonald: Britvic market update bullish today, bodes well for NICL. Lots of buys coming through this morning, maybe on the back of Britvic bullish update. Next couple of weeks should see the share price go well, assuming no unforeseen market tantrums.
disneydonald: Well, NICL are traditionally a company of few words. Their public statements are of a minimal nature, and they don’t do self promotion. Still, all good and as the OoH business recovers the share price should continue to move forward. Could do with a larger free float to encourage more trading.
disneydonald: Seems a lonely BB. I have held NICL for 20+ years, although the last few years they have lost their way a little. Growth slowing, and "fragmented" approach to building the OoH business. IMHO, the OoH business has yet to prove its worth, its ties up capital, leads to regular write downs of goodwill, and it is not clear to me whether they are primarily acquiring brands for development, or acquiring brands to access their infrastructure and operations for the wider Vimto distribution channel. Either way, I would like management to publish their mid term strategy so we have a little more clarity. OoH is dragging down the return on capital from the main Vimto brand and royalty business. Any other thoughts on the subject appreciated. Finally, when watching share buys and sells in recent months it does seem that there is a persistent seller, although it is hard to confirm for sure as most sales are off book. Finally, finally, interesting to note that both previous CFO and CEO have moved on in 2020, and another family member has taken a non exec role. Maybe the family are concerned at their consistently declining wealth over the last few years. Also interesting to note James pledged around £7M of his shares to the bank (which will likely be assessed at around 70% collateral), meaning he has borrowed around £4.75 / £5M cash. That seems to have been done at around £12.5 per share, so James will have had to meet his margin calls with cash top ups as the share price declined since to below £11. Wonder if he has been selling some shares to get the cash, although no RNS declarations issued.
