|Those boys over at www.fairshare.biz seem to be in the know as usual|
|damanko good luck, but this looks pretty expensive dont you think?
Sales of 2.2mln -growing at 29%.........and mkt cap of £31ml!
Unless growth is suddenly going to go through the roof-the best I can say is "HELLO"!|
|cfb2 - its about 10:35.

|ChillOut2: Sorry, I specifically asked them for a copy to be emailed to me but was told that there is no "soft" copy of the prospectus (44 pages long). You need to contact Smithfield Financial and ask them to send you a copy.
chester: The ticker is ANTP.
cfol3: Thanks for clearing that up :) Makes you wonder how much people bother to read what you say....
|jedi - what are you talking about?
This is my first post on here - the above is Mr CFB2 esq.|
|Whats the correct ticker ? Is it ANT ?|
|CFB - You raise some valid points. I am also looking at this company and I'd appreciate it if you could email a copy of the ANT prospectus to me at [email protected]om
I'd better have a good read before I take the plunge (if at all).
|cheers Cfol, remember me for cyc wont u, will likely c u there also, in a mutual way, will also see u on correct epic tommorow.|
|damanko: I'm currently reading through their prospectus and trying to work out whether to invest.From initial reading there are some things that worry me...All directors have lock in agreements, but David Fell (CTO) doesn't - although 300K of options.Tony Caplin (Non-exec chairman) is obviously the VC stooge, with a vast string of companies that have collapsed in his wake, seems to be overly rewarded with £45K renum and lots of share options. Currently director of 19 other companies - even in his position this is excessive.Simon Woodward (CEO) on 170K seems high for company with 40 ppl that's losing ~£1m a year. I'm not one of those people that thinks that you shouldn't reward performance with equivalent pay, but I like to see a low salary and plenty of shares for that incentive.Enough on emoluments, onto competition...From the browser market they've got some pretty stiff competition with Microsoft, Mozilla and Opera. Although producing a browser that is suited to a STB is no trivial task which their competitors don't currently do (although Opera is probably the closest). However, given their software architecture they would find it more difficult to embed technologies like ActiveX into STBs if their licensees wanted to tread that path.Fresco is obviously portable, but with that flexibility comes the difficulty of implementing specific platform features.ANT's sources of incoming are royalties, fees and professional service income.Access fees are derived from license sales of their browser software. Royalty income is received in respect of every unit that the group's customers ship containing their browser. They give the example that royalty is calculated as fixed price per unit with stepped changes dependent of volume of sales.I see the problem with their source of income in the fact that ANT are sandwiched between the customer, who wants to pay as little as possible for their STB, and the service provider, who is trying to squeeze every last penny.

The question is whether ANT will be part of it. I'm still undecided.CFB|
|Software provider to list on Aim
By Maija Pesola

Ant, which provides software for the emerging internet protocol television (IPTV) market, is to begin trading on Aim this week, following a placing of shares that raised £11.2m and valued the company at £30.6m.
Broadband internet is emerging as a new way to deliver television to households. A number of telecoms companies - including France Telecom, Chunghwa Telecom in Taiwan and Japan's Softbank - are rolling out television services over their telephone lines as they look for ways to supplement shrinking revenues from voice calls.

Cubittt built the houses around Sloane Square to the east on a swamp. We met there in the Antelope - one of us hot from the BPRG AGM. He had coffee.
The cooler guy ..well the one with the cooler drink was well know on the TRK board.
And me I had the bitter no John Smith or suitable Yorkshire brew was available.
The markets are playful right now eroding our rightful profits of 10 per cent per day and the conversation after an in-depth on what IvT could do to Diesels turned to
Which three stocks will do best by July 31st? and which by November 30th?
BPRG CFM, NXT
PRM TRK BPRG
PDX BPRG Silver
PDX VTI BPRG
So what indeed ..well we were sober and we all agreed there is not thread where it was truly acceptable to look ahead on more than the one stock so we thought we'd give it a bash.
If I am lucky "cool" will take it from here..|
