Yes, all sounded positive. NED purchase is encouraging. Now three good businesses with the latest acquisition. Financials are messy with lots of adjustments and debt is too high for my liking. Hoping for a bit of strength in the price for an exit as I don't really like this one much. Otherwise I will hang- on to the year end results to see if things improve. They certainly seem to have a little more positive momentum in the three businesses.

A nice buy following results yesterday from Niall Booker, Non-Executive Director. 271,000 shares @ £0.7187. I thought the results presentation was very positive. Problems at Provident Financial with agents changing from self employed to full time have allowed NSF to pick up the best available. They are all performing above target and agents now touching 1000 from 750 earlier in the year. This means more costs this year but suggests accelerated growth from previous plans. NSF have looked at regulatory guidance so far and have dismissed the need to go down the same route as Provident.

Does make you wonder the home credit division only posts 1m profit yet the old company under the Coombs brothers regularly posted profits before tax of 6m. They were very good at cost/ expense control and keeping the impairment under control.Thats what happens when control passes to people without a large stake of their own money invested in the company. The Coombs had circ 52% of shareholding in the family. Watch this space let's hope for all the employees things improve !

Perfectly good management structure before under S&U PLC ,£82.5m paid with a current loan book of £33m. Where are the original management team employees now from S&U? The new lot come in ,where are most of these now? I agree with the need for investment on IT infrastructure and compliance ,but overspend seems to be the case here. Just Google some of the past and present board members alongside ,Welcome Finance,London & Scottish ,Yes Car Credit. Why is the market leader in this sector moving their agents from self employed to employed ,in readiness for full FCA approval? I think the board at NSF should be giving this some serious food for thought ,self employed agents have always acted under a target driven environment in the past which usually meant with unscrupulous reps "overloading customers" and constantly chasing bad debt. It is crystal clear that the FCA see this as target driven and in my honest opinion ,would prefer to see all reps employed. Watch this space and let's see what happens with NSF in the very near future ,on their self employed reps. Remember this,the market leader still hasn't got full FCA approval and neither has NSF ,it appears to me that the FCA would prefer all home collected credit reps to be employed to secure approval ,although i could be wrong this is my assumption.

the announcement today of provident agents becoming employed from July questions the potential profit contribution from Loansathome? Moving 785 agents from self employed to employed status with additional NI, pension and holiday costs, and additional admin is going to be a costly excercise. I'm sure that the horizon scanning should have picked this up before purchase for £83M.

TIA.

So the loanbook for loansathome is 33M - for a business they paid 82.5M less than 18 months ago, and the average agents loan book decreased. We're is the management ! As noted by chimers, it's easy to spend someone else's money!

With HMRC looking at the 'gig' economy re the self employed status of workers and the type of agents used at Loansathome, and this week the regulator undertaking its review of high cost short term credit including home credit it's time maybe to consider stock. Both of these risks question the original investment case?

"The Group has achieved a solid first half performance, reflecting the positive response to the changes implemented in each of our three business divisions. Loan book growth is in-line with our annual target of 20% and customer numbers are also growing strongly with the result that we remain on-track to achieve our targets of 20% annual loan book growth and a 20% return on assets in 2017.

NSF make an appearance in The Times' Business Commentary column today, discussing the lack of interest in lending to those with "impaired credit" (euphemism of the day) amongst mainstream banks. Van Kuffeler's experience referenced, NSF "backed by serious investors", describes the segment as "where profits are strong and recession-proof for those who know what they are doing". (Side note - who remembers Cattles plc / Welcome Finance?). Also mentions AvantCredit. The mystery to me is what has prompted this article in the first place...

Yes, was expensive but good for new investors here as the 84p price I paid for an initial position reflects the value post deal and is cheaper than all the institutions placing price. They seem to have good growth prospects, and a good team, so thought this looked quite attractive. Hopefully, next time they can do a deal at a better price now they have critical mass.

Loansathome4u is bedding in as planned. You can see its beginning to grow balances now http://www.nonstandardfinance.com/~/media/Files/N/Non-Standard-Finance/reports-and-presentations/EDL-presentation-04-12-2015.pdf Bigger issue is what they have paid for today's acquisition and the fact they have raised money at such a big discount. Not happy on either of those fronts. I would have thought existing holders such as Woodford and Invesco would have been keen to protect their existing positions and gone for a higher price. Got that one wrong. Very clear to see who got the better end of the deal judging by respective share price moves.
