Results now posted for the 3 leasehold properties with the Crown and Mitre being the only profitable one - the other two are just awful. Management are accepting the inevitable and blaming market conditions but when I analysed the TripAdvisor reviews there is an awful lot that can be done to improve this business with very little outlay. Over 12% of the customers think that their service is either "poor" or "terrible" - food, pricing, attitude and cleanliness being the major issues. (I sent this information to Robert Peel but not interested). In addition their revenue management is very poor with pricing out of line with their competitors or, as I discovered on two sites, not available far enough ahead. This isn't rocket science and needs to be addressed sooner rather than later.

There's no doubt the value here is in the assets. However, they did turn a profit; overall asset value inched up. And current trading is as strong as last year. Both payables and receivables went in the wrong direction. That should reverse in the second half; hence operational cashflow should more than make up for the increase in debt in the first half. Obviously profit did not cover interest payments; but take a look at the figure for operational cash flow BEFORE working capital changes: this presents a much rosier picture; one of the reasons I imagine the bank is relaxed about the covenant breach. (The asset backing helps, of course!) So these were better results than I'd expected.

Fairly awful results, it really is time they sold this off and returned the cash to shareholders, we might see some value then. And the covenant breach is a worry.

I knew the hotels in Nottingham and Dunfermline were lease-hold, but wasn't sure on the others.

Does anyone here know how many of the 9 hotels are lease-hold and how many are free-hold?, thanks!

The hotel market is still pretty buoyant according to the latest Christie report.

I did stay at the Roal Norfolk a few years back with my family, using the shareholder discount. It was OK, but quite run down. We usually stay at Marriott’s or nice hotels and this was second or third tier, so it was a bit of a shock! Anyway, they have probably spent £10m + on it. I can’t believe that it’s worth anything like that. Might be worth £5m or so, because it’s in Bournemouth. There are some lovely country hotels like Brockencote Hall and The Elms near us. Top tier hotels that have been bought by multi millionaires. They only sell for c£2m each which is amazing. The fact though is that each of the hotels need a staff of 70 or so to deliver a premium service, but don’t turn a profit. That’s the hotel industry for you- difficult!

TV - agreed, paying £8.5m in Jun'09 for the Royal Norfolk in Bournemouth may have been unwise; though I have to admit I have no idea what its value today might be! Will Google for other country hotel deals...

You have a point Skyship but I fear if the owners weren’t as straight as the Peels shareholders would’ve been shafted long ago. Not currently a holder but originally bought my first stock at around 40p a few years back and added several times as the price recovered so did very well. I’m not sure what’s behind the recent slowdown but don’t believe it’s anything the Peels could have easily fixed. A sale of one or two hotels could’ve made a big difference to trading and debt levels. There’s still value here but that’s something may have to wait until they retire.

OK fair point. The mistake they probably made was reinvesting some of the boom proceeds into the run down Bournemouth hotel. The smart money would have sold out completely, but I think they loved running hotels.

TV - as I said above - "No, the Peel brothers have kept this alive; but clearly are NOT excellent stewards." Doesn't seem as though you "can make a case to the contrary". Perhaps Battlebus will give it a go...

You haven’t mentioned that the company would have gone bust a few years back if the Peels hadn’t loaned large amounts to the Company. They were also virtually unpaid for a few years. If they were poor stewards they could have taken private and left shareholders with nothing. As it was I was able to get out at a profit when the going had improved. The Peels are very good. Unfortunately the UK hotel industry is not the best way to make money.

"If there were more stewards like the Peel's on the stock market, then it would be a better place by far!" !!!!! 2010/11/12/13/14/17 - NO DIVIDENDS 2015/16 - WOW – total dividends of 3.5p…. Over the 9yrs of 2010-2017 t/o has averaged £15.7m from a range of £14.2m - £17.1m. Pre-tax profits in that time have averaged £255k; ie a return of just 1.6%. NB – this is over a 9yr period of manjana, manjana – just read through the statements. No, the Peel brothers have kept this alive; but clearly are NOT excellent stewards. More companies like this on the stock-market wouldn't be of much use to shareholders. I repeat, the best thing to happen would be for the Peel brothers to do the right thing, make an offer to outside shareholders and put this public listed company out of its misery. If you two can make a case to the contrary – let’s hear it please. I would seriously like to read and learn.

I don't see any reason why it shouldn't be listed. If there were more stewards like the Peel's on the stock market, then it would be a better place by far!

However you look at it, PHO shouldn't be a listed company. Best and easiest solution would be for the Peels to make an offer for the balance of the stock they don't own. A 90p offer would surely succeed. A massive asset discount; but a 30% premium would be difficult to ignore!

The covenant breach is a red flag, but the Peels have saved the company once already and will probably do so again.

The second half was weaker than the first half, but they still made an operating profit (discounting the write down in asset value of the two leasehold hotels) and a profit after tax. But that level of profit wouldn't cover interest payments. Operational cash-flow was stronger, as they reduced working capital (Obviously, they can't go on doing that for more than a repoting period or two.) and so were able to reduce debt much mroe than expected. Hi Topvest, I agree with your remarks re the breach post-year end.

I think the covenant breach is now a red flag. It looks like it will be a struggle!

Most useful comments from CJohn & topvest - Gents - I think it would be prudent for me to continue to sit on the side.

I suspect they have missed on an interest cover ratio. Implies Q1 post year-end deteriorated further.

My feeling is that the large discount to asset value and the very conservative balance sheet valuations provide a healthy margin-of-safety for asset-based investors. Would the breach of the banking covenant relate to the ratio of operating profit to interest payments?
