MARKET REPORT: AA's "secret" semi-financial insurance businesses are taking the stock price in the opposite direction

MARKET REPORT: AA's "secret" semi-financial insurance businesses are taking the stock price in the opposite direction

The towing service AA has issued a report on the company following the publication of a report by the brokers. He criticized a hidden cheap policy that could "exploit" the revenue.

Last month, it turned out that AA was offering a casualty insurance to drivers within 20 kilometers of their home country.

The company did not announce this policy, but mentioned it to the existing AA members when they called for demolition.

Credit Suisse analysts noted that only 27,000 of these £ 45 policies have been closed, but this could increase as more of AA's 3.3 million AA clients seek out or leave the policy.

The broker said in a research note, "We believe this offering represents an innovative AA content retention strategy."

However, if more people were pursuing the cheap policy, it would be "cannibalism for the personal members' revenue base," the statement added.

The Competition and Market Authority reviews fines for UK companies after complaints have been made by customers who say they pay more to stay with a service provider than new customers.

Nor, following this ongoing investigation, did Credit Suisse state that AA would not be able to offer the significantly reduced service exclusively to outgoing customers, and that it might need to be open to all.

If the cheap policy had to be communicated to all members, the number of users could rise to around 115,000.

AA shares plunged 7.5 percent or 8.15 pence to 100.25 pence, the day after they rose 3 percent on a positive note from their housekeeper Peel Hunt. Peel Hunt's analysts said, "Under a strengthened management team, AA is facing an exciting future."
