Cineworld has responded to press speculation confirming that it is in advanced discussions with Regal Entertainment Group in the USA re a possible cash offer. The proposed price is $23 implying a market cap of c.$4bn - so effectively a reverse takeover. Funding will come via a mixture of debt and a “material equity raise by way of a rights issue”, with management (who own 28% of the equity) committed to invest in the fund raise. The deal would equate to a c.9x FY18 EV/EBITDA which is a c.5% disc

As anticipated an in line trading update from Cineworld this morning, which should go some way to reassuring investors about the full year outcome given weak industry data for Q3. Sales growth YTD is reported at c11%, which is marginally below our full-year working assumption of 14%. However, management, like us, expect a strong final 6 weeks of the year given weak comps and a strong film slate which includes the top blockbuster – Star Wars VIII. Accordingly, it is guiding to no change to the fu
We expect a reassuring trading update from CINE this week. Post a weak industry Q3 we anticipate a strong start to Q4. The next 6 weeks are critical to the full year out-turn but the film slate is strong (including local movies in eastern Europe). The period culminates with the blockbuster Star Wars: The Last Jedi. We feel the weak Q3 is not indicative of a structural trend and fears around competitive threats are overdone. We are buyers ahead of the update on growth and cashflow considerations.
The Group reported an impressive 21% uplift in EPS on 18% revenue growth and rewarded investors with a 15% DPS hike
An excellent set of interims from Cineworld this morning, encapsulated by a 4% EBITDA beat vs our forecast. Overall, the Group has delivered an impressive 21% uplift in EPS on 18% (12% cc) revenue growth and rewarded investors with a 15.4% DPS hike. The general tenor of the results is positive and whilst there is nothing fundamentally new this morning, we are encouraged by reference to strong July trading. Comps admittedly are stiff for the rest of Q3, but the H1 beat and expectation of a strong

Cineworld hosted a very productive site trip to Israel over the last 2 days. The quality of assets and huge financial success in the country over the last decade was clearly in evidence. The key investment takeaway, however, was the read-across for the UK in terms of growing shareholder value in a perceived mature market by upgrading facilities. Whilst the UK is currently on this journey, the trip brought into sharp focus what can be achieved given the success evidenced in Israel. It has also ma

It is worth highlighting the group’s more-than-robust pricing power, which is expected to largely offset the unhedged fuel costs and the recent activities disruptions/cancellations at UK airports.
