Thomas Cook: Oddo reduces price target
(CercleFinance.com) - Thomas Cook has announced that it is in advanced discussions with Fosun and its main banks.
Following this announcement, Oddo confirms its 'Reduce' rating with a target price down to 5p (compared to 18 p), given the lack of visibility on its future strategy in a very challenging context.
The recapitalisation announced (if approved by shareholders) will enable the group to avoid bankruptcy but does not resolve the issues linked to a fragile business model (heavy focus on the tour operator activity), says Oddo.
Oddo also reports that management has announced the conversion of a significant part of the debt into equity (meaning an additional dilution).
