Credit Corp’s results announcement

Credit Corp’s results announcement

Credit Corp (ASX:CCP) has just reported their FY12 results, announcing a NPAT of $26.6m versus market forecasts and company guidance of $25-28m.

The company increased its 2H12 dividend to 16 cps and most analysts were expecting 15 cps forecast. The 16 cent dividend takes the full year dividend to 29 cents, which is 45% higher on the previous year.  The company has talked down the forthcoming year and cited increasing competition resulting in higher ledger purchases.  Investors need to accept this at face value rather than continuing to assume the company will upgrade again at the next half year (as they have done consistently in the past).  FY13 guidance for NPAT is $27-29m and DPS of 29-32 cps.  Based on an estimated 50% payout and an estimated 22% ROE our valuation is further estimated (estimated being the operative word here) to remain well above the current price.  The comments here are for educational purposes only and not a recommendation.  Be sure to seek and take personal financial advice prior to engaging in any securities transactions.

  1. This message may get a but lost in the blog… but for Roger it is congratulations and a well deserved vindication!

    Having invested with Roger previously, I received correspondence about money due to me with regards to Roger’s previous CCP investment that often gets mentioned on this blog with some readers not recalling the full details…

    The CCP legal judgement (Federal Court) has been bought down in favour or Roger’s previous investment decision to the tune of $6,500,000.

    In essence it should help to bring directors and company executives to account (although the ASIC seems to have trouble achieving these judgements !)

    We certainly need more accountability of public companies and hopefully we will see more of this.

    p.s You can find the judgment in the public domain for those interested
