and drift they have done down to just over 70p this morning on low turnover.

Here is another case where a quoted company calls in another broker who has promised to support the market price.......well look what happens - nothing.

What is needed - if you believe WHISKY is a hot investment is a slight change in the business plan and a reduction in stocks which will lower the interest bill.

On the marketing front someone will be watching what they can do if they were to run the business......a French company for example?

"Investing in ultra-premium Scotch’s global growth"

Today’s Artisanal Spirits Company (ASC)’s FY2023 H1 trading update reported just over £10m in sales revenue compared with £9.9m a year earlier and included 7% growth in the second quarter. Importantly, there was a 9% increase in membership numbers. In addition, the statement reconfirmed the benefits of the company’s ultra-premium distilled spirits positioning, its focus on Scotch whisky, and the advantage of not only being international but also in control of its supply chain and distribution system. We leave our forecasts unchanged and maintain our opinion that fair value for the shares – almost a pure play on ultra-premium Scotch - is 150p.

While the ASC’s H1 sales growth was beneath our full year expectation of 14%, the company was lapping a particularly strong growth in the same period a year earlier when sales advanced by 25%. The company itself remains confident that full year market expectations for sales and adjusted EBITDA will be met. We leave our own forecasts unchanged at £24.7m and £1.3m respectively for these two measures.

We draw a positive read-across from Diageo PLC's investor presentation in Edinburgh on 1st June (“Delivering sustainable long-term growth – our vibrant Scotch portfolio.”) Diageo’s central investment messages focused on premium Scotch as a growth category and its value creating qualities relative to other distilled spirits categories. In our view ASC is already a clear beneficiary from these trends and opportunities.

We base our 150p fair value/share, which implies a 4.8x FY2023 EV/sales ratio, on a relative valuation comparison with other international distilled spirits companies and luxury providers.

I agree DICODAVE that EBITDA has fooled ordinary investors for years.

I would say that the Board has to turn this business in to a profitable one showing some debt repayment etc.

Problem is that ART is all over the world - 300 new members here and there - and this does not make a difference.

150p could well be fair value but I have been there many years ago. What makes the shares 150p is real cash profit and they have the means to do this.

I am still a buyer but under 100p.

In come a good new broker and out goes one who did not have the clout - in my view.

GOOD MOVE>>>>>> and one day someone will come along and buy this business at more than 150p per share.

Thank you for your post.

Forget all the stuff about appointments and lets face the future:

1 There is no stock - this morning bid for 15000 @ 85p and offered 5000 @ 94.9p. That is no way to promote the price to say 150p

2 New shareholders will be a turn off when they see the Bid/Offer and there is a case of a small placing to get some more liquidity in to the market

I also am foxed by a recent TIMES article centered on the Chairman,,, this ex Coors man with all the distribution skills is not working full time - it would be interesting to know why.

Sales and membership growth drives momentum, new CEO appointment (new research report & audio summary from Equity Development:

Sales revenue for the year ended 31st December 2022 increased by approximately 20% from £18.2m in FY2021 and is expected to be slightly ahead of our £21.6m forecast when the full audited numbers are announced in March 2023. A 12% increase in global membership numbers to around 37,000 drove the business forward. While we leave FY2022 forecasts unchanged at this stage, our confidence in these numbers is enhanced by today’s announcement.

ASC announced that Andrew Dane, previously the company’s Executive Finance Director, will become CEO with immediate effect. He replaces David Ridley who had been Managing Director for six years. In our view, his appointment should be seen as endorsing the group’s growth strategy both for the Scotch Malt Whisky Society and ASC’s ambitions elsewhere in distilled spirits – e.g. J G Thomson & Co. An update regarding the Company’s American whiskey proposition will be made with full-year results.

The Masterton Bond Facility was the standout operational news in FY2022. It will provide production, cask storage, fulfilment and distribution of ASC's whisky and other spirit stock, and is expected to add around 200 basis points to group operating margins, probably as early as in FY2023. It became operational on time and on budget in FY2022 Q4. Other international expansion moves included an inaugural franchise agreement in South Korea and a new partnership with Drinks Alliance in Malaysia.

We base our 150p fair value/share for the Artisanal Spirits Company, which implies a 5.4x EV/sales ratio, largely on a relative valuation when compared with leading listed distilled spirits companies and luxury goods providers. ASC is simultaneously exposed to both these categories given its emphasis on ultra premium and above Scotch malt whiskies. Furthermore, the £455m notional value of the company’s maturing whisky stocks currently stands at around 7 times today’s market capitalisation.

and me thinks that is what has started the rally.

Problem is that there is no liquidity in the stock and a problem for the board to fix IF the results start to show how good the NEW Chairman is.

Get the price back up to 112p the Placing Price.......and I will supply a few shares.

#ART Strong 25% sales growth, a further 24% advance in membership numbers and important progress at the Masterton Bond facility were key features of a trading update released by The Artisanal Spirits Company (ASC) today. Furthermore, the company reiterated its ambition to double sales revenue between FY2020 and FY2024. With a focus on the ultra-premium category, a fast-growing global membership base and embedded value in its maturing whisky stocks - £430m at retail - we continue to argue that fair value for the shares is 150p.

The Artisanal Spirits Company’s clear and resilient route to growth, which is discussed in more detail in this report, is not reflected in the company’s share price. Putting those strengths to one side though, investors should recognise that the company’s maturing stock of Scotch whisky has an estimated value of £430m. This is more than 10 times the entire market cap of the company. The current share price shows no recognition of the intrinsic value that underpins it.

In addition to this, there are strong arguments for the shares to trade higher on revenue growth considerations. We reiterate our 150p per share fair value at which price the shares would trade on 5.5x EV/sales in FY2022 and 4.1x sales in FY2024, based on our estimates.
