I have to laugh at the fact they lost 211 thousand home credit customer last year due to COVID. So what excuse do they have for the previous years, down from 1.5 million customers. Very clever report writing, covering up the fact they've been reducing the customer base over the years to withdraw from the home credit market, with regret.

They have been planning this for the last 5 years. COVID and the FCA have made it a lot easier for them. As I have said a few times, they want rid of this business.

Massive loss and placing could be a possibility.

It is with regret that PFG has decided to withdraw from the home credit market entirely and is considering a sale of this business. The home credit business will be placed into a managed run-off, which would be expected to conclude by December 2021.

Struggle seeing someone buy CCD, but would be happy to be proven wrong. Irrespective a lot of value in what will remain.

I have been contacted today from someone in the company and informed that staff meetings were held this morning and they were told, business as usual. If you have read my previous posts, I stated PFG want rid of this business. If they do not run off, they can sell it on as a clean business or do what they did with Provident Polska, now IPF. Whichever option they take, it will be a positive move. It's not if but when.

Operational Review of CCD Update PFG notes the recent media coverage regarding the previously announced operational review of its Consumer Credit Division (CCD) including, as an option, the possibility of a managed run-off of its home credit and Satsuma businesses. The Group confirms that, whilst no decisions have been made, the review is nearing completion and the outcome will be announced with the Group's full year 2020 results, to be published on Monday 10 May.

Would be a pretty good result to close CCD. Rebrand as a less morally questionable consumer finance business, maybe shop the new business to PE to allow to rehabilitate for a few years

I think you will be surprised to see it go up.. I think the market will like the fact that it is getting shot of a loss making business.

Given the court case went well for Amigo I can't see why it will be any different for PFG so hopefully that should then give us certainty on the max payout which should give the share price some octane.

Hope you are right on that one ; a final whistle is not impossible. Claims management firms could sink half the companies in the sector if they are allowed free reign in their scumball fashion and the lenders capitulate. Then the really big losers will be the borrowers who end up with the loan sharks knocking on their doors with baseball bats. Hope I am wrong , lost a small paper fortune here already.

Unlike a betting on a football match there's no final whistle here, hang in long enough and we may get back there.

I thought I was doing the right thing by adding as the share price fell , that was in 2017 as it fell from £30 down to about £10, so now I average only about £20. That was clearly a great move....

You have done the right thing buying on the down to average out. It's amazing how that can multiply profit when they go up. A simple calculation is the 1 to 10 scale. You buy ten at £100 and again at nine ,a £100, all the way down to one. Most people would think the average would be 50% but because you get more shares from five down than six up the average is a lot less. People get blinded by averages. I always buy on the down to average out. There is no date as yet on the PFG page for the Annual Report. That's the only thing I'm concerned about, is regarding the delay. For a company to extend a report by a month is not usually a good sign.

I'm in this share up to my neck and chucked another £5K at it @ £1.85 to average down to £3.79 so still got a way to go. Still see myself in ten years time crystallising my SIPP and thanking PFG for a happy retirement though, think it can still get back to £10!!Is there a date for the YE2020 report?

I put a post on here 15th March stating the shares were ridiculously low at £1.89. How many bought at this price. In just three weeks they have increased, as of today to £2.38. Don't be fooled with this FCA business, it's all a red herring. PFG are in a win win situation, regarding this matter. The Annual Report is due soon and who knows how the City will take it. Regardless, if the share price goes down or up on the day, I'm buying more as I'm confident these will go over £3.00. I've put my neck on the chopping block, will I be proven right, lets wait and see.
