Middlesbrough-based pawnbroker Ramsdens Holdings is set to join AIM on 15 February. Its growth is not coming from its core business but from providing foreign currency, pre-paid travel cards and international payments. The strategy is to increase the group’s online activities and grow the number of branches. In the year to March 2016, group revenues improved from £29.2m to £30m. The accounts of the main subsidiary show that foreign-currency margin rose from £5.36m to £7.59m. This contributes 35% of group gross profit. By contrast, the core business of pawnbroking, precious metal purchases and retail sales fell from £21.3m to £19.8m. Revenues from other financial services were flat at £2.6m. Ramsdens has 127 sites and last year it made an operating profit of £3.19m. In the six months to September 2016, revenues increased from £16.2m to £18.4m and operating profit improved from £2.81m to £3.48m. The placing will raise £15.6m at 86p a share, valuing the company at £26.5m. NorthEdge Capital, which backed a buyout in September 2014, will receive just over £10m from share sales. The NorthEdge stake will fall from 75.6% to 30.7%. The other £5m will go to the company and be used to repay the remaining loan notes and the costs of the flotation. By the end of March 2016, there were still £4m of loan notes outstanding to NorthEdge, with £4.86m paid off during the previous year.

As always at the start of a year, there are significant uncertainties about the year ahead but I think in 2017, the level of uncertainly has decisively moved up a gear. In fact, a leading economist at the LSE, Ethan Ilzetzki, was recently quoted as saying “I view the current global economic environment as the most uncertain in modern history”. Wow.
Driving distribution – price target raised
26 Jan 17
Fever Tree’s (FEVR LN, HOLD, T/P 1250p) strong second half trading statement and clear ability to drive distribution forward this calendar year prompts us to upgrade both our full year 2016 and 2017 forecasts as well as raise our price target from 1080p to 1250p, which implies a full valuation for now.
Breakfast in America
24 Feb 17
Peacock Foods should ensure Greencore enjoys organic, profitable convenience food expansion in both the UK and US. The acquisition transforms America, in our view. Moreover, while long term mature market growth remains the salient investment case driver, Peacock’s benefits currently appear unrecognised in Greencore’s share price. BUY.

Looking at the top 50 non-listed casual dining and bar operators, it appears that the £80bn market for eating and drinking out in the UK is alive and well. The AlixPartners Growth Company Index (October 2016) shows that 2-year profit CAGR has improved over the last few years, and recent surveys from Greene King, Coffer Peach and Deloitte highlight elevated spend on out-of-home occasions. We attribute this to 1) a shift amongst consumers from an ownership to experience-led mentality which has driven habitual spend on leisure 2) an increasing focus on food from historically wet-led operators as they diversify their revenue streams to mitigate competition from the off-trade and match consumer gravitation towards eating out and convenience; 3) increasing regional penetration resulting from oversupply and high rental costs in London and 4) strong sector support from Private Equity investors, attracted to the Leisure sector's cash flow profile which can be leveraged against. Nevertheless, we may look back on 2016 as the peak for casual dining and bar operator profitability, particularly for London-weighted operators who face unfavourable rent and rate costs as well as potential loss of cheap migrant/seasonal labour. Past performance is certainly not a guide to future performance.
