m_kerr: market cap pre covid £7.2bn plus £2.7bn net debt (including lease liabilities) = £9.9bn enterprise value. now it's an enterprise value of £9bn, so it's a drop of 9%. so it looks like peel hunt did their maths correctly on overall valuation. but remember that in effect a big chunk of the company was sold for £15 a share, representing a significant and permanent reduction in intrinsic value per share. the rights issue was a shockingly poor capital allocation decision. they had a strong financial position and should have used the covid financing facility (or bank debt - either unsecured or secured against their property), then there would be no dilution.
bountyhunter: Fair point but have Peel Hunt not allowed for that? The share price is more than 40% down from pre-covid levels (£50 -> less than £30) so even allowing for the effect of the dilution with additional shares issued 1 for 2 @£15 there has still been a significant drop in the valuation.
m_kerr: BH - remember you need to divide that enterprise value over 200m shares instead of 133m, due to the rights issue at a very dilutive share price of £15. net assets per share were £28 pre covid. now book value per share is £19.20 a share.
essentialinvestor: dart, yes fair point. If I had a better idea on the white collar business market as a % of Premier Inn revenue then would be more confident in making an assessment. I've put WTB on a watchlist in any case. Luck to holders.
philanderer: Long term potential for Whitbread, says Berenberg Premier Inn-owner Whitbread (WTB) has suffered downgrades in estimates for next year but broker Berenberg is still optimistic about the potential for the shares. Analyst Stuart Gordon retained his ‘buy’ recommendation and target price of £36 on the stock, which closed up 2.2%, or 68p, at £31.90 on Thursday. Gordon said his recommendation remains unchanged despite ‘some meaningful downgrades to 2022 estimates due to the extended restrictions associated with the Covid-19 pandemic’. ‘Despite these downgrades, our estimates for 2023 and 2024 improve slightly due to the promising recent recovery in occupancy,’ he said. ‘We continue to believe that Whitbread has attractive short, medium and long-term characteristics that will be supportive to the shares.’ HTTPS://

bountyhunter: Whitbread [LON:WTB], Q1 Trading Statement, Thursday 17 June Laura Hoy, Equity Analyst Https:// “Summer bookings will be the highlight of Premier Inn owner Whitbread’s results, as the hotel chain prepares for what’s expected to be a staycation summer. Roughly 15% of the group’s hotels are dotted around the UK’s coastline and with travel restrictions causing chaos for holidays abroad those locations should benefit. 55% occupancy is the magic number at which Whitbread says it can break even, so we’ll be looking for overall bookings to exceed that figure. The pandemic’s not been all doom and gloom though. It’s harder than even to be a hotelier and that’s opened the door for Whitbread to use its size and stability to grow its market share. Last year the group increased its hold on the UK market by 6.9 percentage points— only time will tell if that trend will continue as things loosen up. We’re also keeping an eye on Germany, where the group is pressing forward with its expansion plans despite the pandemic. The German operations are expected to be loss making both this year and next, but we’re keen to hear whether the group’s new hotels are gaining traction.”
commuter10: Agreed Net Curtains. Hotels of to a slow very cautious start. Restaurants & bars running at about 50% capacity. What happens from June will determine how far the share price can go. The Indian variant could be a major determining factor here. Watch & wait. Cautious Hold for now.
bountyhunter: Thanks for posting that link dd. Clickable: Https:// From the above.. "With restaurants set to re-open from Monday, we asked our Twitter followers to nominate a listed food chain as stock of the week. They’ve chosen the first item on the menu, Whitbread (WTB), which owns the likes of Beefeater and Brewer’s Fayre restaurants. After the latest winter lockdown, England has been slowly re-opening in recent months, with pub and restaurant goers able to eat and drink outside from April 12 but only do so inside from May 17." Also there is the Staycation factor seen to be a plus for the Premier Inn hotel chain. We could see a rise in the WTB share price tomorrow as long as vaccinations continue to appear to be effective against the Indian Covid variant.
ric0chet: i wonder if they had spun off Costa coffee, how much difference that would have made? Brexit and general market volatility, WTB share price seems to be getting smacked harder, and on low volume.
