From the update on 19th May :-

"The Group is planning to announce its preliminary results on 16 September 2020 and publish its Annual Financial Report shortly thereafter. The Group sees this delay from its normal reporting timetable as a prudent and practical measure which is in line with the Temporary Relief Statement announced by the FCA on 26 March 2020, to allow sufficient preparation time following the disruption caused by Covid-19".

Announcement of year end results

16 September 2020

looking at the website regarding future reporting dates cant see anything for this year
They have over 100,000 vehicles out on hire so that is good business for the rental side. There is also something on their website about managing 400,000 vehicles but I am not sure what that is about. They also buy vehicles that may need work doing before sale so it sounds like a lot of business for the repair side in the future. Plus the very good review in August on somewhere like PI World and I think it could be quite promising.
As a owner of a vehicle rental company
Around 4 percent of our vehicles are at a bodycentre for either accident repairs or repairs and prep for disposal at any time. We have to use 3 body shops per hire depot to cope with the work load ourselves.
This 4 percent is a constant figure, not seasonal.

So if Redd wasn’t using nationwide crash repair as a supplier already then nation wide crash repair have just received a huge work load of all Redds repair and prep work.

"Some are only reaching a fraction of pre COVID-19 volumes despite reopening outlets. Consequently, the sector is set for a make or break re-balancing period over the next few months. Refreshed lending agreements, cash conservation and supply chain management will be key."

So weather a few months and this could be a CV bargain

"After PwC was appointed as administrators, the majority of Nationwide Accident Repair's business and assets were sold to RunMyCar Ltd, a subsidiary of Redde Northgate."

Yes it does

10:23't mention REDD... Groan.
Yes, but they have refused the dross as they are only taking on 77 sites, also an opportune time to seek rent reviews.
Looks a good deal at less than asset value, and a positive trading update as well.

Last accounts submitted 2017 ?
Lost £602k but after writing off £9.5m in amortisation.

So this was in a poor state pre-covid ?

So Nationwide was in administration, is this an example of a CV related opportunist bargain - or was Nationwide already struggling badly pre-covid ?

Acquisition of certain businesses and certain assets of Nationwide Accident
Repair Services

Significantly increasing our strategic and operational capability

Redde Northgate plc (LSE:REDD), the integrated mobility solutions and
automotive services provider, today announces the acquisition, by a wholly
owned subsidiary, of certain businesses and certain assets of Nationwide
Accident Repair Services ("Nationwide") by way of a purchase from
administrators, for an initial cash consideration of up to GBP11m, plus a
deferred consideration of up to GBP5m conditional on retention of certain trade
business on satisfactory terms.

The Group also provides a brief update on trading ahead of the preliminary
announcement scheduled for 16 September 2020.


Since our pre-close trading update of 19 May 2020, and as restrictions relating
to Covid-19 have eased, the Group has seen sequential monthly improvements in
trading, such that the level of support packages provided to customers has now
reduced to a minimal level, vehicles on hire have increased in all countries,
accident and incident volumes have started to increase as traffic volumes pick
up, and vehicle disposal channels have re-opened, with recent significant
improvement in residual values compared to the prior year. Further, excellent
progress has continued to be made in integrating Redde and Northgate since the

Given the improving trading environment and the continued close management of
liquidity, cash inflows have been strong and the headroom on our bank
facilities has increased from GBP234m at the end of April 2020 to GBP291m at the
end of August 2020.


Nationwide is the UK's largest wholly owned repair network and the largest
independent accident repair company in Europe. It is a strategic partner to
many UK insurers, with whom, in several cases, Redde Northgate has existing
relationships. Of the current 102 bodyshop sites, we will take up to 77 sites,
providing the Group with national geographic coverage. Of these sites, there
are a small number of freehold properties, and the remaining leasehold
properties will be occupied under licence granted by the administrators and we
will make a determination in due course whether to take leases on these sites
based on whether we achieve satisfactory lease terms. The acquisition will see
approximately GBP17m[1] of gross assets, including a fleet of mobile repair vans
to service customers in their location, as well as approximately 2,300 of
Nationwide staff, transfer to the purchasing subsidiary.

The acquisition is expected to be earnings enhancing in the first full year of
ownership as well as delivering a post-tax return on invested capital
comfortably in excess of the Group's weighted average cost of capital.

The acquisition, which will be funded from existing facilities, further
reinforces the strength of Redde Northgate's proposition, extending the Group's
existing capabilities in Service, Maintenance and Repair services. Before this
transaction, in the UK, Redde Northgate did not have in-house capability for
repairs, but has long considered building capability in the UK as the Group
already successfully runs repair centres in Spain. This transaction offers the
Group the opportunity to deliver on that goal quickly, with a strong team, well
located sites and an existing flow of business, utilising surplus repair
capacity with its own volumes.

Commenting on the acquisition, Martin Ward, CEO of Redde Northgate, said

"At the time of the Redde Northgate merger, we set out our vision to become the
leading integrated mobility solutions provider. This acquisition, our first
post-merger, is in line with that vision and significantly increases our
strategic and operational capability to support a wider number of business
partners requiring automotive repairs. We expect this acquisition will open up
new markets to the Group, and in combination with an established pipeline of
repair work from existing Group companies, such as FMG, it is well placed to
maximise future opportunities.

We welcome those Nationwide colleagues who will be joining the Redde Northgate
Group and we look forward to creating new value and service offerings for all
our stakeholders."

Van prices still sky high
Basically impossible to buy anything at anywhere near cap prices, most are £2000 over cap on average so for example today many cap at 10200 plus vat 3 year old and selling for over £12000 plus vat at BCA

Premium cars are also a good 10 percent over cap, premium M cars 20 percent over cap guide prices which I’m guessing helphire side of redd run on their fleet.


Redde Northgate plc (LSE:REDD), the integrated mobility solutions provider,
notes recent media speculation about its interest in Nationwide Accident Repair

The Company confirms it is in advanced discussions about a possible transaction
involving Nationwide Accident Repair Services. The Group believes the network
of body shops and customer base would be a good strategic addition to its

There can be no certainty that a transaction will be entered into, nor the
terms of any such transaction. If a transaction does take place, it will be
funded through the Group's own cash resources. A further announcement will be
made when appropriate.

used van prices still well over 25 percent higher than normal

rental prices beginning to rise due to van shortage and increased demand around 16 percent on new business.

difficult to try a raise rates on existing business in these times.

Yes but very comforting to have the market cap more than covered by net tangibles. This has to be way too cheap..
Technically they probably could, but would never actually happen as there would be no business left! However they could certainly sell a good chunk to reduce debt and boost earnings/book value.
Could this company sell their entire fleet and return £2 odd to shareholders. Am I reading this right? ( if so the business is in for free ? )
Thanks for the info. Let's hope they've sold some of their stock to take advantage, given this is trading at substantial discount to book value it would certainly make sense.
Hi river, I know van monster well
I wrote the business plans many many years ago.
Unfortunately the van monster centres are very tired, I wouldn’t buy from one.

I have had no connection with any part of redd for 18 years
Apart from a major holding in HHR years back too.

The van shortage is due to a number of situations

One, amazon and the likes demand, more people going self employed with rented or purchased Van. Also company’s needing to rent as nothing forsale new. And of course government grants and cheap easy loans.

Two lack of new vehicles in the market,
For example enterprise cancelled all the vehicles with an unnamed manufacturer, and then the vans got snapped up by other buyers so for example enterprise has like 1 percent of these normal numbers forsale to the trade, the disposal lists are bare.

Another example, British Gas/hitachi don’t have any used vans coming up for disposal
As they either can’t or are not buying new. (I don’t know the exact reason)

Certain people snapped up all the new vehicles Available in the UK around April 20th time.

Manufacturers of vans are well behind, one missing part due to covid destroys a production line. It will get worse as suppliers to the manufacturers start to go bust due to delays,
Also the UK is a little tiny part of production, if the factory are not producing enough for Europe they made not even bother with Right Hand Drive UK with Brexit Unknown’s

3, the price of new vans due to Brexit,
Week pound and covid, and euro 6.2 new engines. New van prices are now up
£1800 average over cancelled order prices

Paying a lot of premium 188.30p for a large buy 26K, and it was just short of £50.000.
spread 184.8 v 185.70p

08:28:37 188.33p 26,410 49.74k

master rsi
The shares are wanted on the order book. alreeady from the start, the order book is very strong on the bid side 28 v 18 orders
master rsi
Based on very quick research, the shortage seems to be due to fleets holding on to their vehicles for longer than usual, causing a big drop in supply.
