KC Light stream fibre broadband
8 Jul '14
Well today KCOM installed my fibre broad band,,,,WOW . I am supposed to get speeds of 75 but actually getting 87. Its called light speed and wow isn't it just that its brilliant. There is now a waiting list to get connected due to word of mouth and the scramble to get on board, every day another neighbour is being connected. I can relate to the point made in the statement about the take up being ahead of expectations. I have never seen anything like it. KCOM just go from strength to strength. I have to say also the technical support line that's free with the package is just great too.
I simply can not understand why the sp stays below the pound mark.

Are vod really sniffing round? Would make a good plan for them but Kcom would do well to remain stand alone. Their business plan is sound

my analysis...for what its worth...
9 Jun '14
- earnings and EPS up albeit slightly.
- divs up 10% as promised.
- return on equity 47%. for the last 5 years return on equity has been over 50%.
- kcom are paying out over 60% of their earnings on dividends.
- slight increase in total assets but also slight increase in liabilities, so total shareholder equity has increased slightly to £85m *HOWEVER* goodwill is down as £85m also so actual shareholder equity if you discount goodwill (which i always do) is zero.
- for free cash flow i calculate :

Operating CF 73.176
plus interest received 0
minus interest paid -4.436
minus tax paid -1.531
minus fixed asset purchases -16.207
plus fixed asset sales 0.633
=£51.635m

so free cash flow good. actually FCF/share is higher than EPS this year but over the last 5 years FCF/share is on par with EPS.

overall i am happy with these results, the expectations were that profit was going to decrease slightly so nice to see a small increase. like most people tho im here for the divs but i dont think thats a bad thing, after all some stocks are purely for divs, like national grid for example, and i suppose kcom too.

i am slightly nervous about the shareholder-equity-less-goodwill situation though, so to be honest i would not mind if they cut divs a bit after 2016 and put some money back into the business, see that shareholder equity figure rise.

I bought in here 3 weeks ago, after studying the TA and fundamentals. It seems a solid company with prospective contracts and a good track record. I'm pleased with today's results.

Well what do we all think?
6 Jun '14
I find it interesting that no one is saying what great news the under lying figures really are. This financial year was the first year that KCOM were not having to drag Hull City Council along after they awarded their contract to another Company for the first time...freedom indeed from their historic mill stone.. On a stronger note from the statement do we all think an expansions on the cards or diversification perhaps ? One things for sure they have turned a lot of heads today reading the reviews.

Just part of an additional tax incentive where you purchase £ 125 of shares before tax ( real outlay £75 on 40%tax)
I believe.
