Business Description: G8 Education Limited (GEM) is a childcare center operator providing developmental and educational child care services mainly in Australia. GEM conducts a range of child care service activities, including: the acquisition of child care centres, the management of child care centres, industry-related project management, services and consultancy. GEM also operates child care centres, both owned and franchised, in Singapore.
Strategy Analysis: G8 currently holds a portfolio of premier childcare brands and chooses to navigate this quality tilt through its corporate architecture as the company continues to stress the tremendous importance of outstanding childcare. This strategic positioning of its product, disseminating quality and safety allows the G8 to command relatively high margins. In addition to this, a wide distribution spanning Australia and Singapore gives the company leverage to capitalise on demographical changes. Growth will stem from both potential acquisition opportunities and through more organic means.
G8 Education reported NPAT up 11% to $19.21m for the year ended 31 December 2012. Revenues from ordinary activities were $179.99m, up 26% from last year. Diluted EPS was 8.94 cents compared to 9.27 cents last year. Net operating cash flow was $19.95m compared to $11.76m last year. The final dividend declared was 2 cents, taking the full year dividend to 6 cents compared with 4 cents last year.

â€śFinancial markets are artificially priced. In the bond market, there is nothing normal about a three year German Bund yielding â€śminusâ€ť 10 basis points.â€ť
