Chairman's statement

I am pleased to be reporting on the Group's profitable results of £2,052,000 (December 2013 - £1,442,000).  The results are for the 52 week period ended 28 December 2014 and a comparative of the 52 week period ended 29 December 2013.

 

Results


Revenue for the year was up 28% on last year to £29,734,000  (2013 - £23,192,000).  Operating profit before pre-opening costs and non-trading items was up 34% on last year at £3,090,000 (2013 - £2,301,000 ).  Pre-opening costs for the period totalled £360,000 (2013 - £259,000).

The overall statutory pre-tax profit was up by some 46% at £2,552,000 (2013 - £1,742,000).

The Board does not recommend the payment of a dividend at this stage of the Group's development.

 

Openings

Seven new Wildwood and Wildwood Kitchen restaurants were opened during the year: Oakham and Salisbury opened in March.  Camberley, Nottingham and Ludlow were all opened in August with Bristol and Wantage opening in November and December respectively.

 

Since the year end a further three sites have been opened and a number of other sites are already in the pipeline, at various stages of completion and negotiation.

 

Cash flows


Net cash outflow for the period before financing was £1,061,000 (2013 - £1,531,000).  This is largely represented by capital expenditure on the expansion of the business through the opening of the above sites. Cash flows from operating activities increased to £5,308,000 (2013 - £3,238,000). 

The Company continued to have access to its banking facility of £4,000,000 (£1,000,000 term loan and £3,000,000 revolving facility which remains unused).  During the year the Company repaid £250,000 of the term loan.  As at 28 December 2014 the balance of the Company's term loan was £750,000.

Cash and cash equivalents held at the end of the period were £2,044,000 (2013 - £3,407,000).


Review of the business


The Group delivered another strong performance in 2014, with an improvement in operating profit margin and a 46% increase in pre-tax profits. 

The Group continued its expansion during the year, adding seven new sites to the estate.  The rate of development will accelerate in the medium term.  Openings in the coming 12 months will expand the UK geographical footprint of the estate.

At the end of the period the Group operated 36 restaurants.  Currently, the Group has 39 restaurants in operation - 6 DimTs, 32 Wildwoods and Wildwood Kitchens and 1 other.

 

Pre-opening costs and accounting adjustments

Pre-opening costs have been highlighted in the income statement as these costs represent revenue expenses, such as rent, rates and training costs, which are necessarily incurred in the period before a new unit is opened, but which are specific to the opening of that unit and not part of the Group's normal ongoing trading performance. The Group recognises a number of charges in the accounts which arise under accounting rules which have no transactional cash impact.  These charges include share based payments.

 

Staff


As ever, it is our dedicated staff that have contributed significantly throughout the year to the Group's much improved performance, and I would like to take this opportunity of thanking them again for their hard work and effort.

 

Current Trading


Since the year end trading has been in line with expectations.

Strategic report

 

Business review and key performance indicators


Revenue for the 52 week period increased 28% on last year to £29,734,000 (2013 - £23,192,000).  Operating profit before pre-opening costs and non-operating items was £3,090,000 (2013 - £2,301,000).  Pre-opening costs for the period totalled £360,000 (2013 - £259,000). The overall statutory pre-tax profit was £2,552,000 (2013 - £1,742,000).

The Directors utilise a large number of detailed performance indicators which are used to manage the business but, as with most businesses, the focus in the Income Statement at the top level is on sales, margins and overheads compared to budget and the previous year. In the balance sheet the focus is on managing working capital.

The Directors recognise the importance of customer relations and staff are extensively trained in this regard.  Performance is monitored by reference to the results of regular mystery diner visits and staff bonuses are calculated with the results and comments arising from these visits and other customer feedback.

A further review of the business is included in the Chairman's Statement.

Principal uncertainties and risks

Economic conditions

There have been a number of encouraging signs regarding the UK economic outlook.  However, there still remains a high level of uncertainty.  Deterioration in consumer confidence due to future economic conditions could have a detrimental impact on the Group in terms of footfall and sales.  This risk is mitigated by the positioning of the Group's brands, which is within the affordable segment of the casual dining market.  Continued focus on customer relations and targeted and adaptable marketing initiatives help the Group retain and drive sales where footfall declines.

Input cost inflation

The Group's key variable inputs are the cost of food and labour, both of which face inflationary pressures in the medium term.  The Group monitors its food supply chain closely, regularly reviewing food costs and implementing a variety of strategies to mitigate the impact of increases.  Labour cost pressures which are outside of the control of the Group, such as the recently introduced auto enrolment pension costs and minimum wage increases, are suffered by the Group and its competitors.  However, labour costs are regularly monitored and on-going initiatives are used to reduce the impact of such pressures.

Strategic risks

The acquisition of suitable and well located quality sites in order to continue the Group's expansion is proving to be demanding.  The Group has a strong and experienced property acquisition team with good relationships with external agents and advisers.

On behalf of the Board.

Notes forming part of the financial statements for the 52 weeks ended 28 December 2014

 

1      Basis of consolidation

The financial information in these preliminary results has been prepared using the recognition and measurement principles of International Accounting Standards, International Financial Reporting Standards and Interpretations adopted for use in the European Union (collectively Adopted IFRSs). They are presented in pounds sterling, rounded to the nearest thousand. The same accounting policies, presentation and methods of computation have been followed in the preparation of these results as were applied in the Company's 2013 Report and Accounts.

The financial information set out in this announcement does not constitute the Company's statutory accounts for the 52 weeks ended 28 December 2014 or the 52 weeks ended 29 December 2013. Statutory accounts for the 52 weeks ended 28 December 2014 and the 52 weeks ended 29 December 2013 have been reported on by the Independent Auditors. The Independent Auditors' Report on the Annual Report and Financial Statement for both periods was unqualified, did not draw attention to any matters by way of emphasis, and did not contain a statement under 498(2) or 498(3) of the Companies Act 2006.

The Annual Report and Financial Statements for 2013 have been filed with the Registrar of Companies. The statutory accounts for the 52 weeks ended 28 December 2014 will be delivered to the Registrar in due course.

The recoverable amount of goodwill has been determined on a value in use basis.  This has been based on the performance of the units since they were acquired and management's forecasts, which assume the sites will perform at least as well as the market generally.  The forecast cash flows are discounted at a rate of 10%.
