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: Yeah, reasonable analysis. However, written by a US based commentator, so likely no actual feel for what reality looks like, just a fair guess. The "pubs" side of things are related to the dispense side of the business which includes a wider range than just pubs, but clubs , caravan sites etc. Also, the OoH sector includes all the discretionary purchases made for individual portion sizes, shops, canteens etc. Which should go well as UK starts to mobilise again. Finally I would add that NICL now has has new management (CEO, CFO and their respective long term incentives now in place), and the family now have Board representation (no doubt to look after their ~35% stake), so hopefully lots of motivated execs to drive things forward. I still reckon we should move forward especially once half year results announced.
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: All feels good with NICL, steady progress being made. I have taken a few profits from my SB positions at 1500, but holding my long term real holdings.
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: That’s encouraging. Obviously dealers are placing orders in auctions which suggest a positive rerating. Only problem with NICL is the wide spread and narrowly traded shares, which means its hard to get in, and get out in any volume. However, all looks set fair for a gradual rise. Just need to be smart when buying / selling.
philanderer: 20,000 printed so far today, which is high for NICL ;-)
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.
philanderer: HSBC RAISES NICHOLS PRICE TARGET TO 1,550 (1,500) PENCE - 'BUY'
3800: Yesterdays 20% price increase was rather out of character too for a company which is usually very boring.
