Not me,In at 50p This company is nothing like the one back in 2018 If you bothered to read the data, all metrics smashing new records Even through C19 and the blip down in energy usage they managed it and thrived picking up Bristol energy for a net 900k doubling the customer base at the time.Since then we have moved to over 21,000 generating record turnover and profitable now.It is now about rapid growth and the foundations are all in place, tried and tested.Oh yeah did I forgot to add YU are also hedged out until 2023 so no issues with gas price as they back to back hedge contracts and also no price cap in the SME space like domestic.This is what the market are missing and tarring everyone with the same brush, YU are not Domestic. We can go on and on but I know where are YU are going and very patient first it will £3 then 5 and eventually £10 which even then is only 160m MC

Also it is all speculation with regards to YU acquiring a rival. Coker has some valid points that growing organically maybe the way forward and no harm in thatBut if YU can buy a client book , tripling the current client base in a fire sale from a distressed rival it would be bad of the BOD not to consider it Let's not forget YU are dripping in cash and debt free Also you automatically assume a discounted placing because that's what you are use to.Many other ways to fund and acquisition of this nature and we are not talking huge sums The BOD have made it clear small to medium would be funded from cash resources a large scale reverse takeover would be different.

Lol you deepverge losers are really a pice of work.If you want to talk placing have a look at your own stock portfolio deepverge burn through cash constantly and what's your market cap v turnover again ?Oh yeah ridiculous.Chalk and cheese, YU are a well run outfit , profitable, huge turnover and solid through a once in a life crisis in the energy sector.The strong ones like YU will become monsters once the dead wood have been removed off the playing field.Unlike deepverge who will still be diluting shareholders for the next 5 years if they are still around

I believe they were. They were also the no1 supplier for customer service, according to which.

Hedging is a great de riskier for times like this as we are all finding out but this does have negatives like when COVID hit and the price collapsed but that was due to the usages falling so dramatically In an ideal world the hedge was 100% match the usage so irrelevant but we are realists and this never happens and always margin for error in under or over hedging.It's the nature of the beast and always will be. Currently YU are reaping the rewards of back to back contract hedging but it cost them 1.8m in 2019 and now made them 1.2m so far.Ultimately all you can hope is that over say a 5 year period it evens out

Thanks Sparky. That is the key point for me, is this recurring income, as without it they remain loss making. If the reason if that for some reason they are overhedged, and they remain that way, the next results will have a really big number in that box. But if their process remains the same it will turn to a negative in a falling market. If it is a one off mtm gain on Bristol it will disappear once the Bristol contracts have expired. An equivalent deal with CNG wouldn’t give this benefit. I’m interested in this point as it is fundamental to their profitability and I don’t understand why it is there and whether it will disappear in future periods……; It certainly seems disproportionately large for a back 2 back hedged book of this size.

Hey Sparky So you think this is energy they have sold back because customers are consuming less, nothing to do with MTM profit on the Bristol deal( there was one, and it was pretty substantial, so is in the numbers somewhere, and is non recurring). Remember that the big spike in prices came in September, the last results were for the half year to June. My thinking was, average price in 2020 about 45/MWh, average price in H1 21 about 65. The derivatives gain was 1.2m, so would have been power bought for 2.2m and sold for 3.6m (roughly, if the 45-65 2020-2021 delta caused the gain). £3.6m is roughly 15% of the energy they would need to supply a £65m book. Not sure why this would be an ‘unrealised217; gain, surely if it were sell back of an over hedge it would be realised. This is why I think it relates to hedges bought for Bristol. E.g Bristol sold deals at, say, 55, and made, say, 5. Yu bought those deals unhedged, bought hedges separately at 45. The 5 margin on the normal deal sits in their normal p&l, the 10 one off mtm gain is the derivatives line, and is unrealised as the delivery period of the contract hasn’t completed yet. If this is correct the derivatives line will drop to £6-900k next time, as the hedge gradually delivers. If it is an over hedge, that is structural and continues it will be much higher next time……

How do you get 15% when energy has risen hundreds of percent ?So if clients average 90% usage in Q2 and they bought say £15m worth That is 1.5m they sell back which has risen 300% so they sell back for finger in the air 4.5m I am making these numbers btw But currently it is more profitable to sell back usages hedges that provide to the client so operating below estimated budgets is a good thing, but the opposite if they are consuming more than estimated

No idea powerslave all I know is they took a hit of 1.8m during lockdown as selling back bought power as clients used less.I assume the 1.2m is again selling back as they built back up towards normal usage as the energy price was rising fast from Q1 21 yet usage was still not at 100% If usage is still slightly below pre pandemic levels I see another large derivative gain coming.

Does anyone have any insight into the £1.2m derivatives gain showing on the interim results. I thought it reflected hedges bought to cover the Bristol acquisition (as the wholesale market was lower priced at that time, than when Bristol signed the customers). However the accounts say it reflects energy bought for customers, but not needed and sold back….. this doesn’t add up. To create that gain they would need to be selling back energy equivalent to 15 % of their supply. That wouldn’t be necessary with a back to back strategy

Agreed on CNG customer base being small 40,000 turning over £100m YU have 21,000 and will turnover at least 130m and maybe a lot higher heading towards 140m +
