jbizzle1: So is this tumble in the share price more or less entirely related to that Ofgem letter received from a few weeks ago? Are we basically just holding our breath to see if a fine/what kind of fine is levied against Paypoint and then we’ll see how the share reacts after that? Everything I see points to a very healthy business that is operating well but quite undervalued.
joepublic1: Yes I am at a loss to understand this share price reaction. People talking about a fine being up to 10% of total turnover seem to be over reacting. The British Gas contract turnover was £3.5M pa. Not sure of the total energy market turnover, but if it were 10 times that it would be £35M pa. 10% of that would be a fine of £3.5M. Not enought to knock 20% off the value of the business. Competition with Payzone has always been there and is not new. Retailers moving to Payzone will find themselves competing with Post Offices though - not something I would have thought was good for their footfall and business. There might also be competition questions regarding post offices if they exclusively operate Payzone and not Paypoint.
big_cat: Looking at the share price movement over 1 week, 4 weeks, 3 months, year and five years the stock has consistently lost value. Could someone tell me why the share is considered to be undervalued when the figures show a different picture?
tole: Looking beyond insurers, PayPoint appears more resilient than many. The group was a favourite stock of Neil Woodford's, one of the few shares in his Equity Income fund that provided an income. PayPoint provides kit that allows customers to make cashless payments in convenience stores and collect parcels from online retailers, such as Amazon. Consumers can also pay utility bills with PayPoint technology and top up mobile phones. As shoppers shy away from cash and turn increasingly to cards to purchase even small items such as pints of milk or packets of digestives, PayPoint is benefiting. The utility bill arm has done less well but in the long-term, PayPoint should deliver the goods.Right now, PayPoint is suffering from lingering – and probably ill-founded – fears about its prospects. The stock has fallen from £10.90 in January to £6.36 at the end of last week. With a dividend of 31p forecast for the year to March 2021, that puts the shares on a yield of just over 5 per cent and brokers at Liberum expect the stock to rebound to £10 in the coming months on a yield approaching 5 per cent.
3rd eye: Extract from Roland Head Cube midcap Daily report May 28, 2020. PAY Paypoint. Dividend: PayPoint is not participating in any government support programmes and has not furloughed any staff. So this fabulously cash-generative company is still able to make dividend payments. A final dividend of 15.6p per share has been declared, representing a 34% reduction from the equivalent payout last year. My view Last year’s results highlight PayPoint’s profitability. The group’s underlying operating margin was 47% and my sums suggest a return on capital employed of 145%. When combined with a balance sheet that’s largely free of debt, these metrics make for fantastic cash generation. The risk is that we don’t yet know whether the company will be able to return to this happy state of affairs as the pandemic recedes. However, my view is that the firm should be able to adapt to the decline of cash by becoming the de facto payment services provider for convenience stores and perhaps other retailers. PayPoint currently has a UK network of 26,800 stores out of a total addressable market of 62,600. I believe this network will continue to have value and am happy to allow newly-confirmed chief executive Nick Wiles to navigate this changing market. At current levels, I’d guess that the company could offer a dividend yield of 4%-5% going forwards. I think this is could be an attractive entry point and remain happy to hold.
3rd eye: PAYPOINT POSTS RISE IN FY PROFIT, SAYS CURRENT TRADING RESILIENT (Sharecast News) - Payment services group PayPoint reported a rise in full-year profit and revenue on Thursday, with growth across most business areas. In the year to the end of March 2020, pre-tax profit increased 3.8% to £56.8m on revenue of £213.3m, up 0.8% on the year. Revenue in the UK retail services, which now represents 34% of group net revenue, grew by £3.2m during the year, driven by increased service fees from adding more than 3,000 new PayPoint One sites. The company said its parcel business delivered volume growth of 12.7% as its new partners, particularly eBay and Amazon, were rolled out to more sites within its network and awareness of the service developed. Meanwhile, UK bill payments and top-ups net revenue "showed continued resilience in the face of the current decline in cash payments in the UK" and the previously announced ending of the British Gas contract. The company proposed a final dividend of 15.6p a share, down from 23.6p in 2019. PayPoint said current trading has demonstrated "good resilience" in the bill payments and top-ups businesses. ATMs and parcels have been more severely affected, although card payments have benefitted from increased sales in the convenience sector. Chief executive Nick Wiles said: "The Covid-19 crisis began to escalate late into our financial year with limited financial impact in the results we are reporting. We took swift action across our business in response to the unfolding crisis. "The core characteristics of the business remain unchanged, with a strong balance sheet, clear business model, a broad and resilient earnings' base with the opportunity to use technology to adapt our business model and strong cash generation which supports the payment of a dividend."
3rd eye: PAY Paypoint......... Liberum: growth opportunities at PayPoint Payment company PayPoint (PAY) has matured into a business with ‘exciting growth opportunities’, according to Liberum. Analyst Joe Brent retained his ‘buy’ recommendation and increased the target price from 800p to £10 on the stock, after full-year results came in ahead of expectations due to management waiving their bonuses and proposing a final dividend. The shares gained 2.55%, or 18p, to 740p on Thursday. ‘The business model has developed from utility in a mature industry to a retail solutions provider with some exciting growth opportunities and high operational gearing,’ he said. ‘PayPoint trades on a current year 2020 price/earnings of 15x...which is attractive given the cash generation and growth opportunities.’ ========================================================================== All these forecast unemployed joining the dole que, should mean a lot more business for PAY going forward.

togglebrush: Page 6 of annual accounts 2018 'hTTps:// ' Payzone is reported in Romania supplemented by the acquisition of Payzone in October 2017. Transaction volume grew by 21.4 million (28.6%) to 96.4 million, with Payzone adding 17.0 million transactions. Overall net revenue of £11.9 million (2017: £9.2 million) increased by £2.7 million (29.8%) driven largely by transaction volume growth. Our integration of Payzone is progressing with the Payzone people now co-located in PayPoint’s office and further sustainable cost efficiencies have been identified. The acquisition has expanded our client base to more than 160, increased our network to over 20,000 sites and has increased our share of bill payments issued by our clients to 33% (2017: 23.6%). Our network in Romania is extensive across cities, towns and villages from which we will benefit as new services are demanded in Romania from the government or consumers, as is the case with card payments, mandated in shops by government, where we have recently extended a commercial trial to over 400 sites.
