turning out to be a big value trap here or some fund manager disposing and selling off....

 

im also in on a truckload adding as its falls so lets hope if fund manager, the overhang will soon be finished!!!

A bit worrying that two CEO's have resigned in two years.Hussein Adams (who earns far too much as executive chairman for a start up operation such as this) a problem to work with?

That is actually why I bought in, if it weren't for the gaming side that can fund the food side it was a different story. The problem (I think) is the baskin robbins & dunkin side, the one here in Stellies is a very very quite most days (avid supporter I'll admit) and the few times I've been in Tygervalley had limited footfalls so how many donuts/ice creams do you need to push just to cover the rental in those places, let alone the rest of the stuff.. but the gaming, properties & Spur holding makes it worth a bite at this levels but wouldn't go all in

Burger King is the major focus.The other 2 are of no significance.

 

The Dunken at Kenilworth Centre and Blue route is also very quite.Apparently a middle eastern investor (where Dunkin is very popular) is interested in buying it.

Management could also start buying back stock, Criminal not to at these levels.

Hussein Adams is buying but then, he and the company, has been buying since the late R3's.

I keep a daily running value of their investment in spur at eod spur share price..

 

Todays value of spur only per gpl share = R 1.05

GPI owns 17.8% of Spur =20.0688 million Spur shares /474 million GPL shares. After deducting preference share debt of R248 156 000 the value per GPI share is R0.62 with Spur @R27.00

obviously at worse case scenario you need to adjust that price for any income taxes and cgt in event of sale!

Dunkin and Baskin fairly immaterial compared to burger King, which is starting to perform. Think Baskin will be sold off anyway.

Feels a bit like a form of madness, but so have I. It hard to see your portfolio keep going down but I just keep looking at the assets I am buying and the price I am paying. Stnadard Bank research showed gaming assets are worth over R3, so Spur/Burger King etc is for free. (That is the theory anyway)

Very very tempted Bull, listened to Anthony Clark's presentation - makes some good points, and if the Spur synergies come to play..

In addition , unit trust holdings increased by 70% as at the end of the September 2017 versus the June 2017 quarter and by a further 5% by the quarter  end of December 2017. Institutions are seeing value in the company with the Investec Value fund being the biggest buyer.

At the time Keith wrote the article the price was R3.79. Currently it is hovering around R2.40. Subsequent to writing it, GPI  bought back 33m  of its own shares,  sold off buildings to raise cash to roll out more stores, downsized head office, bought more Spur shares (17.8% holding) built a new bakery to supply Dunkin Doughnuts (was importing them!) and freezer facility to store more ice cream locally.Burger King is HEPS positive.

 

GPI sold 10.0% of its holding in SunWest and Worcester casinos, leaving it with 15 %, and  70.0% of Sun Slots leaving it with a 30% holding as at June 2017.

Nicely summed up, but why isn't the share price jumping?

 

An oldie I found - nice point Keith makes:

Interim results out today.

 

Trading at R2.28 per share. The gaming assets  NAV  alone =R3.60 per share. That is , you get all the food assets (Spur, Burger king,Duncan Doughnuts,Baskin Robbins, the new bakery) and properties for free and the gaming assets at a 36% discount.

Have had similar experiences, Burger King a quality product in the QSR space.I think the interims for December will be good, perhaps share price will react. Where is Turfloop?

Sorry, Turfhall,Cape Town.

Got my Double Whopper with cheese at the Turfloop branch this evening.It has only been open for 4 months and it was PUMPING, especially the drive through.Then popped into the branch at Kenilworth Centre. It too was busy. The Steers in the same food court, with a similar size shop, was dead.

Popped in to Burger King at Cavendish last night to have a Double Whopper and endless Mountain Dew.The place was pumping, considering it is January  mid-month (broke post holidays and back to school costs).

 

Steers (Famous Brands), in the same food quarter, was dead.May as well close its doors.
