topvest: Very odd this company. The Chairman's Statement appears in the Annual Report nearly 3 months after the results and 6 months after the year end. The wording is, in my view, more bullish than the results RNS. That's probably why the share price has gone up today which is good news for holders but all very sloppy. It's all very poor practice and a bit incompetent if you ask me. Why doesn't the Chairman write to shareholders in March rather than putting something out that is obviously newer. Anyone else noticed this? They should be told to communicate properly and do the Chairman's Statement with the results which its what 99% of companies do.

lagosboy: The share price has not been weak of late - it has been around this level since April 2012. The implication of your unsupported view was that once the FTC decision was handed down that the share price would get pasted. With due respect I don't feel that have read too deeply into your post, rather I have addressed the nub of the issue. Anyway, time to move on now and just consider ourselves lucky that BILL was able to get a small dividend away in the meantime.

lagosboy: The key has nothing to do with what is priced in by the City. This is not Vodafone. The share price will only react when the number is known and the future cash flows adjusted. Bill historically had an EBITDA of circa 25% on enhanced revenues - if managements figure below of $886,288 is adopted as a proxy for EBITDA that equates to $3,544,912 of unauthorized billings. To my mind that is the starting figure, it must be based upon something tangible and whether or not the Judge sees fit to add a further penalty one can only speculate. $5 m looks a reasonable number to me. The FTC's $30.1 million damages request reflects amounts billed consumers for the services, minus any refunds previously provided. But Bemporad wrote that figure is "based on the assumption that every consumer who was billed for voicemail charges did not authorize the charge. As shown by the evidence, many customers have in fact authorized the charge, even if they did not use the service." BSG, meanwhile, said any damages imposed should be limited to the amount of its gains, which totaled $886,288. Bemporad found that figure inadequate.

55investor: A fraction ? they received $25 million from memory and they did turn into a respectable company in the end and the price got to 42p high so what if the dot com boom aided the price did that. The fact is in Bill this business throws off cash so anything positive on the settlement front and this share price will soar. There is always some large buys now and again so I think insiders think there will be a positive outcome better gamble than most of the rubbish traded on Aim right now.

lagosboy: JM holds 29% of company - tiny volume shifts price such is the lack of interest in this stock. Problem is without new revenue streams legacy business clears debt but on a DCF basis amounts close to current share price and then throw in FTC uncertainty. It will not be debt free by April 2014 - miscalculation. This company has had 'potential' new business for many years but has failed to deliver -let's hope for a change !

lagosboy: gark take a look at PEBI (PortErin)- it is in Jim Mellon stable. Last reported NAV almost 50% below share price - since then there have been meteoric rises in some of the stocks so value / share price gap even wider. DYOR but don't shout about it - as close to free money as I have found.

gark: Any views on the big trade here? Over 15 mn in one trade is big for this stock. The fact share price held tells me this is a buy.

lagosboy: lawmb Back in 2010 Bill was doing circa $130 million in total revenues. 2 main segments to this, the core business and the enhanced billing revenues - the enhanced billings revenues are the revenues subject to current litigation and were running at circa $ 25 million of total revenues. AT&T made up about $15 million of this and it was hoped that it would be re-captured. It has not been - so all $25 million dropped out leaving a core business generating circa $ 105 million in 2010. That has fallen to a projected $ 75 million for year to 2012.- 28 % decline. This decline is much steeper than most investors had anticipated. The legacy core business will continue to decline year on year - land lines are used by less people and are becoming obsolete. Many investors backed bill for its B2Phone product - it had blue sky potential but it has failed. I have no idea how the Wi-Fi product will do - but it will hopefully replace the core business revenues which will continue to fall away. The run off of the legacy business, unless it declines even more steeply will service the debt and eventually produce a number of years of free cash flow. These cash flows can be discounted and NPV for the share price calculated. Whilst I agree with gark that there is value here, I believe that EV is a totally inappropriate valuation method for this company. Gark is incorrect when he refers to any lawsuit settlement coming out of reserves - he must be an accountant ! Any settlement will be paid for out of the bank and will have a direct bearing of free cash flows, the speed of debt repayment and of course the NPV for the share price. The quantum is both unknown and critical. Gark knows a lot more than me on the history of the legal action - but one thing I would say is that the only predictable thing about lawsuits in the US is their unpredictability.

gark: My prediction. FTC is settled, ongoing revenue generation. By the end of the year, net debt approaching $10mn with purely free cashflow as of late next year. Not bad for a £9mn market cap. I think the share price will be back at 10p by the end of the year. Need the FTC uncertainty to disappear but am confident we will see this happen at some point in 2013. Let's see.

lagosboy: capt bligh The EV is probably a little lower than that, given there is cash on the balance sheet. EV/EBITDA, say 45/15 is fairly low at 3 x. The current share price is all about the loss of enhanced billing revenues and the bad publicity from the Senate enquiry. Gross revenues have fallen approx 25% (150 to 115 conservatively)but the share price has fallen by around 70%. It has in my view over shot to the downside. Enhanced billings may or maynot return, purely guesswork at this stage but further economies in the core business and new products should begin to recover some of the lost revenues and drive the share price. Lower interest costs will also have a small positive effect on the EBITDA. As debt is paid down sentiment will also improve. There are not many small caps that could get a €50 million re-financing away in today's enviroment on the back of a 25% fall in revenues, 30% drop in EBITDA and a 70% share price decline and senate enquiring into cramming to boot ! It leads one to believe that the forecast going forward might be a little stronger than we know. This management has always been very cautious on its guidance.
