The Restaurant Group proposes a deal to help it own fewer restaurants

By Chris Bailey | Monday 11 September 2023

Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours. I wrote this article myself, and it expresses my own opinions. I am not receiving compensation for it (other than from ShareProphets). I have no business relationship with any company whose stock is mentioned in this article.

I have not been a fan of The Restaurant Group (RTN) for ages and it does not surprise me that this business, with “approximately 380 restaurants and pub restaurants throughout the UK as at 10 September 2023”, has seen its shares fall by more than 75% during the last five years. And despite the fact that, at some point, I have been to one of its Wagamama restaurants, back in May I regarded the stock as a clear avoid. So am I surprised that it has announced “an agreement in respect of the proposed sale of its Leisure business comprising of 75 trading sites and associated restaurant and management team employees to the Big Table Group”?
