Sky City Entertainment 2009 FY Profit Preamble

With Sky City Entertainment Group [SKC.NZ] reporting its FY 2009 profit this coming Wednesday 19 August, investors are not going to get any surprises.

The dividend ratio has been cut, debt has been paid back and profit is well up on last year.

On July 21 the market was updated with a profit up roughly 15% to around the NZ$116 million mark and since then shares have climbed to as high as $3.45 from about $2.80 before the upgrade. This is in a market where all shares are basically up.

What we need to know is how Nigel Morrison is going to go managing the company in the following 12 months and beyond.

In a sneak preview of an interview coming out in late August early September with Nigel I indicate the importance of this in my preamble:

Sound capital management with a focus on customer service and unnecessary costs stripped out have been the key to Nigel's success so far.

But what of the next 12 months and longer?

How will the business go under his leadership and what new ideas does he have to take this company through the $1 billion revenue barrier and beyond?

Morrison has done well but a further test of his strong management so far will come as Sky City emerges over the next year or so.

Shareholders and the market must see how Nigel will accomplish this and he should indicate the key ways he will achieve this, without revealing competitive secrets of course.

I look forward to Wednesday.
