Pembury Lifestyle shares

Background of Pembury Lifestyle

  • Pembury was started in 1999 by its current CEO and founder, Andrew McLachlan, the first Pembury Lodge opened with only 5 residents and has since grown to over 400 residents across many lodges. Pembury’s goal is to become a national name in retirement, opening in all cities and towns in South Africa. Pembury’s vision is to help people make the most of their well-deserved retirement years. All its lodges accommodate residents according to their needs, from independent living to frail care. The lodges also offer various recreational and physical activities to ensure there’s always something to look forward to. Pembury is expanding on an annual basis as the need for secure, quality retirement lodges rises. Pembury’s aim is to help retirees keep their independence for as long as possible, but still provide the peace of mind that their daily needs are taken care of.

  • All Pembury’s staff members are qualified, caring and hardworking individuals. Pembury only employs people with a passion for people; those who are willing to go above and beyond what is expected every day. South Africa’s listed education sector is about to get busier with the imminent listing of PLG Schools, part of the Pembury Lifestyle Group,  on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange’s (JSE) Alternative Exchange. It will join the likes of main board listed Curro, AdvTech and property specialist Trematon, which has a fledgling schools division as part of their portfolios. Founded in 1999 and initially focused on developing retirement accommodation the Pembury Lifestyle Group stepped into the schools space in 2014 when it acquired a piece of land more suited to a school than a retirement complex.

  • Over the last two years PLG Schools has grown from one campus, comprising three schools, to seven campuses with 19 schools in 2017. A campus generally includes three schools comprising Pre-primary, Primary and High School. In a move to forecast its growth forward, PLG Schools announced its intention to list on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange’s (JSE) Alternative Exchange (AltX). PLG Schools will be one of the few education-focused entities on the JSE, and will also provide diversification if the portfolio of retirement lodges is introduced in the future. The listing will enable PLG Schools to reach the goal PLG has, of growing its education portfolio from seven campuses and 19 schools, to 19 campuses and approximately 55 schools by 2022. This growth will enable the group to provide quality and affordable education to thousands more South African learners who are hungry for knowledge and a brighter future.

  • Through the listing PBT is hoping to raise around R140 million in external capital to fund the growth aspirations of the group. Since PBT started business in 1999, it had focussed on growing a portfolio of retirement lodges. In 2014, this changed when PBT was able to purchase a property which was more suited to a school and this led to the establishment of PLG Schools. This buy, today has allowed PLG Schools to quickly grow from one campus, comprising three schools to seven campuses with 19 schools generally comprising Pre-primary, Primary and High School. The group anticipate growth of three campuses per year between 2016 and 2020.

Pembury Lifestyle Shares Growth Driver

  • PLG Schools uses existing structures in prime locations. Properties (that have structures) who are for sale are converted and can open within six months. In addition, overheads have been reduced by the inclusion of action sports (rather than catering for swimming, tennis, hockey and so on) These are part of PLG Schools sports-for-life ethos and include action cricket, action netball, action soccer and action hockey. Private schooling, while delivering better results for learners in many instances, remains unaffordable to the majority and provides education to just over 500 000 students out of a total learner population of 12.4 million. According to McLachlan fees are 15-25 % less than those of the nearest competitor and learners follow the IEB or CAPS curriculum. Like its bigger peers, which are already invested in tertiary education, PLG Schools intends expanding into tertiary education with PLG Tech Colleges. This is targeted at alleviating the critical shortage of technically qualified people – less than 20% of the country’s matriculants enter university. “We see enormous potential for this type of post-matric qualification,” McLachlan says. This obviously betters PLG’s shareholder and PLG share price, providing a wider base for share growth.

  • But the first step in this process is to list PLG Schools, which will include the underlying properties for each school site. The retirement lodge portfolio will potentially be acquired at a later stage, dependent on investor appetite, who’s live online stock movement will probably be aided by how good PLG Schools does on the live charts. “This first step positions us for future growth and structures the company appropriately for the acquisition of additional properties for the roll out of school campuses,” says McLachlan.

Pembury Lifestyle Group Investor Tip

  • PBT’s revenue has grown 148% for the 10 months ended 31 December 2016 compared to the first year of operations ended 29 February 2016, with an increase in operating costs of 112% for the same period. The PBT group saw an increase of 64% in the number of pupils from 1 100 to 1 809 at the beginning of 2017, the spike will obviously have positive implications for PBT’s share price. This could point to growing approval of the Group’s new venture and the improved performance will no doubt be a large positive for the PLG Group’s share price and PBT shareholder dividends.

  • The PBT Group was able to achieve movement from net liability of (2.75) cents per share to a net asset value of 8.42 cents per share trade. According to the group’s data, subsequent to its year end, the PLG Group successfully raised R140 million by way of a private capital placing of 140 000 000 shares at 100 cents each.
