Three Quick Facts: Naked Wines, Barkby, Everyman Media


Three things you need to know in the financial markets today from investment writer, Tony Cross.

#1. Naked Wines quest to unwind inventories ongoing

Naked Wines LON:WINE has published its half year report this morning, noting falling costs, a drive towards ongoing profitability and a significant reduction in forward orders to help trim inventory levels. Total revenues for the period are down by 20%, but the theme of inventory optimisation here is crucial. Customer order patterns over peak trading months are in line with expectations, but will the market itself be looking for more?

#2. Barkby: are EV charging points the key to new JV deal?

AIM listed Barkby LON:BARK has announced a JV that will see it develop a portfolio of UK-based roadside real estate assets. Supporting a range of casual and fast dining locations and perhaps more critically the scope to add EV charging points, the first venue is set to deliver an initial 7.95% yield. It’s worth noting that Barkby’s investment here is however limited to just 3%.

#3. Everyman: two more cinemas added to estate

Everyman Media Group LON:EMAN has this morning announced that it has completed the acquisition of two Tivoli cinemas in Bath and Cheltenham. There’s no detail over transaction size disclosed, but the change of operations takes place with immediate effect.

With the corporate calendar now clearly in pre-Christmas [LON:XMAS] wind down mode, today marks the last Three Quick Facts of 2023. Thanks for reading, have a great break and we’ll be back in the New Year.
