I think the implication in this part of the RNS absolutely stinks. "As announced in December, and as part of the operational review, PFG has created a new intermediate holding company to streamline the structure of its operating subsidiaries and ensure that the Group is well-positioned going forward." That reads to me like they were taking the precaution of cutting CCD adrift in December. But they wait to tell the market of the implications until MAR21 As I have tried to point out with other companies , some of which have gone into liquidation , no one tells the bad news as it is first time. Profit warnings coming in 3's is long established and it is human nature in these businesses to not pass it on all at once. After all if something is your fault and you get 3 months more pay before you are sacked why wouldn't you ?

"fenners66 26 Aug '20 - 09:34 - 3890 of 4049 "CCD reported a loss before tax (LBT) of GBP37.6m (H1'19 LBT: GBP15.1m) " But receivables were down about £100m What is the point of lending to lose money ? I confess I have only read the first section and not all the way through - maybe there is some better news further down." Based on the fundamentals I was negative on PFG in August and said so on here at the time. In terms of share price , a buyer then could have done well , if sold at the high later. However those CCD fundamentals and presumably the internal impact of attempting to chase loans to improve profitability have come back to bite PFG. Furlough is still to end, unemployment could yet get worse. Now we read that CCD is a complete disaster. This company has been heading down the toilet since the share price hit about £30.

Morale of story is that all these run up in market/share prices one doesn't know what is lurking behind the trading statements...

As i said, another amigo. I remember that crashing to the 40s when they started dishing out the bad news and since then have lost another 3 quarters. Pfg is also a dog and imo will be permanently below 100p within a month

Never ends well when reference is made to stakeholders. Le May is way out of his depth and should fall on his sword.

It's unwelcome but is it a complete disaster. Probably not. Uncertainty on costs/penalties and timescale will take its toll on share price One for the brave.

RED FLAGS GALORE ". As a result, and as part of the ongoing operational review, PFG has decided to pursue a Scheme of Arrangement (the 'Scheme') to protect the interests of all its stakeholders. Separately, CCD has been informed recently by the FCA that it has opened an investigation into certain conduct issues, specifically between February 2020 and February 2021. " Marker at time of posting 195/196p Down 25% (down 65p) Now I wonder how large the penalties might be?

For smarter folks than I...Should they bin the CCD business? What would the valuation be like for a standalone Vabquis and Moneybarn. Liquidity used to be a key issue for this business, but the banking license changed that fundamentally. Assuming capital base isn't overly impaired through this cycle, with ongoing access to liquidity, does the price accurately reflect the upside / downside, or is it more skewed to the latter at these levels?
