swiftascent: Beginning to look good value on Jim Slater's PEG ratio. Two concerns as investor:1) Serge is by no means a young man. Who is the successor? 2) Think the share price is not fizzing because the book value per share is not really increasing much. The question is why not?
walbrock82: Okay, in the case of dividends. Yes, management is increasing their dividend for next year. My concern is it is unsustainable because of the ramp-up in business operations, especially their Laundry division. After 2018, will it be advisable to keep on increasing the dividends when internal cash generation is barely covering capital expenses? You guys are right about the dividend cut is having a big impact on the share price. Maybe some investors realise the dividends paid out are unsustainable and are anticipating a cut? For imranawan, my working capital calculation derives from current assets minus current liabilities, and I was comparing it against their cash cycle days. Hence, a quicker cash cycle would increase working capital, therefore Photo-Me doesn't need the extra capital (debt) to keep their business operational on a day to day basis. For xxx,yes their was a computer glitch in Japan, but it hasn't affected their Asian operations as operating profits have increased from £6m to £10m in 2016.
walbrock82: With the share price, close to record highs (though down quite a bit today), here are my thoughts: - 1. Photo-Me decision to expand was the right one because revenue has gone down for years. Now it has a laundry unit that is growing fast. 2. The decision to increase dividends payout was wrong because Photo-Me is expanding and should be deploying cash towards that objective. That £32m payout was equivalent to 5% market cap. and contributed to a £25m in cash outflow. But, expect that was a one-off event!! 3. The laundry unit is looking to balance their photo booth unit as sales grow by 80% to £21m. They want to operate 6,000 units by 2020. Currently, it has 3,251 units. 4. With higher future capital expense, expect Photo-Me to start borrowing more money or reduce dividends to realise these objectives. 5. Other tell-tale signs of increasing borrowings are the fall in working capital from £53m to £37m, a five-year low. 6. Expect higher depreciation charges in the future, similar to £30m-£35m. It is currently at £22.4m. For the detailed analysis and charts, click
napoleon 14th: Whatever one might think of the results, & I'm very underwhelmed, the simple fact is I'm even more underwhelmed by the share price performance which has under performed my PF by a country mile. From 150p to 165p over the last 3.5 years is pathetic in a bull market such as we've had, & ROC is boring. I've been overweight here for all that time and will cut back on PHTM when I've sorted what else I will to do
shanksaj: Preliminary annual results for year ended 30th April 2017 should (might!) be announced 27 June 2017, (as per Trading Update dated 2 June). These prelims will announce if we have any Special Dividend this year. I am hoping for a Special div of 2.5p which would give a total dividend of 9.53p and a div yield for the year at 168p share price of 5.6%. (Ex div date 5th October 2017, pay date 10 Nov 2017.) Next year Photo Me have pencilled in a dividend of 8.44p before any special div which is a div yield of 5% (at 168p sp). Div history (ordinary) (special) (total) 2010 1.25p 0.00 1.25 2011 2.0 0.00 2.00 2012 2.5 0.00 2.50 2013 3.0 3.00 6.00 2014 3.75 2.00 5.75 2015 4.88 0.00 4.88 2016 5.865 2.82 8.685 2017 7.03 ? ? 2018 8.44 ? ? The special dividends are becoming part of the landscape.
pnetol: I can only assume that their is still a seller out there drip feeding the market with stock at the minute. Hopefully results day will finally clear this as I think that once the market starts to realise the prospects here over the next few years then we will hopefully attract a raft of new investors. Prospects here look very good IMOFrench photo booths upgrades almost complete, likely to increase the prices charges, margins will improve further. Roll out in Germany of the ANTS photo booths, hopefully further details announced with resultsRollout of 150 new photo booths in Ireland and 150 upgraded to allow secure transmission of passport docsTo me the jewel in the crown will be the laundry business. Consistent roll out, more self service laundrettes and the roll out of the smaller revolution 2 machines in the Far East. I love any RNS where they mention the words "very well" this was with regard to the opening of their first laundrette in Japan. And finally the Japanese "my numbers" programme should restart this year, if it hasn't already done so. I'm holding very tightly to my shares as I think the next 12 months should be quite exciting. My hopes are a share price of £2.20-£2.40, with the dividend increasing a further 20% next year, along with another special dividend.
arc en ciel: Brilliant news from Ireland, fully endorsed by the Irish Govt spokesman. This new business must generate large and sustainable profits for years ahead, especially as Boots seems to be withdrawing from the market. And yet the share price gets marked down on the day! Perverse. Perhaps the thought of the initial investment in new machines and software is inhibiting some investors. But Photo-Me is well capitalised to meet substantial capital infrastructure costs in cash, let alone its ability in financing the new Irish business through debt finance.
gleach23: Thanks for the info retsius but I disagree that it's understandable. Surely shareholders are expecting a Q3 trading update in line with all previous years. I know it's not mandatory but that January statement was only made in response to the share price movement and didn't really give any update on trading other than reaffirm the expectations as set out in the interims. I'd be very disappointed if PHTM joins other companies by just reporting every 6 months and making a statement at the AGM.
velod: Perhaps this is all you have to focus on to help you decide - . . . Photo-Me's UK photo booths only account for an estimated 5% of group profit! So a decline in income from this area of the business won't have a major impact! . . . Okay here's the full version from this week's Shares Magazine, out today: . . . Title: Photo-Me blinded by mobile threat to earnings . . . Sub header: Any-hit-to-profit-unlikely-to-be-as-bad-as-implied-by-share-price-collapse . . . One fifth of Photo-Me International’s (PHTM) market value was wiped off at the start of the week following news that the Home Office will accept photos taken on mobile phones for passports. . . . Investors assumed this would render Photo-Me’s UK fleet of photo booths as worthless. The company replied by saying it believed accepting photos from mobile phones for official documents was ‘incompatible with developing security requirements’. . . . Analyst Simon Davies of investment bank Canaccord Genuity remains a fan of Photo-Me, saying share price weakness is a buying opportunity. ‘The UK is trialling potential changes to passport applications, potentially allowing adults aged over 26 to use mobile photos to renew their passport, but only if the photos are of the requisite standard (set by ICAO and ISO), something which is very hard to achieve,’ he comments. . . . PHOTO-ME’s UK PHOTO BOOTHS ONLY ACCOUNT FOR AN ESTIMATED 5% OF GROUP PROFIT, SO A DECLINE IN INCOME FROM THIS AREA OF THE BUSINESS WOULDN’T HAVE A MAJOR IMPACT. . . . Davies notes Europe is shifting towards more sophisticated security photos including 3D imaging and iris scanning. Therefore he believes there is a chance the UK Passport Office could rethink its stance towards pictures from phones. . . . Ends.
ggbarabajagal: biggles, whats a farthing between friends TOKYO -- Japanese corporations' government-issued identification numbers are now valid internationally, removing an expense associated with cross-border e-commerce. The 13-digit numbers, issued to every company by the National Tax Agency this past January, have been accredited by the United Nations and other international bodies for use outside Japan. Until now, Japanese companies have used nongovernment ID numbers for e-commerce. The identifiers are available for a fee from providers including Tokyo Shoko Research in the case of international transactions and have been tied to their own ID numbers. Counterparties have checked the numbers against each other. Photo ID could become global. That would be awesome for the PHTM share price which would go to 400p imho, i rember seeing these at 400p once
