gowlane - fair comment but Brian inspires no confidence whatsoever - the market continues to see the stock as a 'bargepole' stock - and that's no surprise based on their record so far I think short/medium term the only hope for PI's is as you suggest a takeover or merger - probably around 30p!!!

Leluot, we will know more when the report is out but but the industry has been a bit slow in finding a solution to the ad blocker problem Hopefully Tosca put SBM under pressure to exit legacy businesses last year and if that was a one off, they may be able to halt or at least slow down a further decline in revenues. It seems a 50/50 shot. No confidence in SBM I have to say but it might be worth hanging around for a takeover / merger event

perfect time for a low ball takeover? INTQ ere taken out at a 120% premium but they were showing rapid growth I find myself wondering is SBM actually telling us the truth?
very disappointing, the market is growing when our share of it is falling, do those comscore figures mean nothing at all? Seems not SBM is not even able to communicate in plain English any more, 'planned drawdown', 'seasonality', we are reduced to guessing what he means, okay that's me voting against all resolutions again, that will show them, ha! just don't see where the recovery is going to come from, though cash burn was not so bad, is SBM setting the stage for a lowball takeover?

I was invested in Autonomy and held throughout having originally purchased at £20 per share but mercifully purchased more at £0.90 until the takeover by HP What I noticed with Autonomy is that after the lows and even on ostensibly good news at full and half year reports the MM did not lift the price as many had expected. I recollect that it took another year after the good news started to flow before the price started to reflected the story. I understand that the Nomad has a lot of control over the market statements on the AIM market and I suspect they will downplay the positives and control the price. I can only hope that there is spectacular news which pulls the rug from under the Nomads feet but personally I am digging in for another 12 months before the price reflects the reality.

Internetq up 75% today on takeover talks. Talks led by tosca
Tosca having a look at internetq - takeover

Risky being "short" methinks ... a takeover rumour or positive RNS could do some damage ... I'm planning to short at £2.40 ... in other words, never!

Next maybe April 15 2016: blinkx takes over the world with its domination of the ad tech sector May 24, 2016: blinkx acquires WPP in a multi-billion pound takeover Christ up 4p and I'm talking about world domination once again

Blinkx has cratered and recovered twice in its short life. The Barky 'sells' that I was pulling his leg about referred to that historical period ... it is conceivable that PI's had great results during this period if they managed to sell high, and then buy back in again low. I'm sure some did. Barky is hoping that the pattern will repeat itself a third time. I reckon we'll get the jury's verdict in 12-18 months time, barring a takeover.

Takeover in the 40 to 60p range for me folks

Interesting Insights!Will we be called Yu Me and SC? Has Tosca made a mistake? Is there a takeover in the offing? Are the scaffolders on a lunch break? All depends on the integrity of the Bod?

The big positive for me is that the cash reserve provides a few years of cover ... any positive news will aid the share price and perhaps hasten a takeover. But your scenario, if it is proved correct, will take at least two years to play out (due to cash) .. and a lot can happen in that time.

Kendo ... not worth £1 based on current performance, it's probably at fair value based on current trading expectations. That will only change with positive updates. Blinkx do not anticipate profits until 2017. You're in for a long haul, barring a takeover. The cash provides that opportunity. What happened to Quil? How long will he have to sit on the "naughty step"?

LCWA - but at Findel, Toscafund (and Schroders) appear to have sold down to allow Mike Ashley in (Toscafund reduced by 9m shares and from 30% to 20% of the voting rights, Schroders by 8m shares and to 17% of the voting rights, allowing MA to come in with 16m shares and 19% of voting rights [edited to distinguish between shares and voting rights]). So I think an SDI (Sports Direct) takeover of Findel is something that Toscafund (and Schroders) may be trying to orchestrate - and Toscafund appears to have aligned with Schroders not R&M to do that. R&M has followed Toscafund and Schroders in agreeing to vote against the SDI-nominated director, but in my opinion Toscafund is probably trying to get SDI to go for a takeover.
well Tosca have marched right up to the top of the hill, and they seemed somehow to be in a big hurry to get to this position, so what are they going to do now? will they screw their courage to the post and make a takeover bid with all the risks and uncertainties out there, or will they just sit tight now and await for the trading updates to come in so if Blinkx deliver in Q3 then happy days for us . . . otherwise . . .

Stocky. The board of directors have no say about who buys shares in the market. I'm surprised there isnt more speculation about a takeover with Tosca sitting at 29%

Apologies for the misleading information posted earlier and thanks to LGW. He is correct to point out that the code was amended in 2013 The Takeover Code will, on 30 September 2013, widen the categories of companies it regulates by: partial removal of the residency test for companies which have their registered offices in the UK, the Channel Islands or the Isle of Man; and clarifying and simplifying the Takeover Code’s applicability to private companies.
well there we are guys, cannot pretend that Mr Market is not squeezing us (hard) by the short and curlies what can we do except hold - or bail if you have no confidence I suppose cannot see huge sense in bailing out now with Tosca building up to a possible takeover bid, but each to their own one thing for sure - if this gets taken out at 50p - neither ML or SC need show their faces at any VC fundraising event again - as far as I am concerned they are toxic rant . . . rant . . . grrrh
I really think BM's options are irrelevant for a takeover. A buyer would compensate him as necessary to get him to stay (if that's what they want) or pay him to leave (if that's what they want). He could use his current option package as a lever in negotiations to get a better retention/leaving package but that's about it I think. In any case, I suspect if you analysed the current value of his options using black-scholes or whatever they wouldn't be worth very much at the moment - and that would probably be the buyer's starting point using the share price just before any takeover announcement as the price for valuation purposes.
I see ads on those sites? Bet365 and Amazon at the moment. If Tosca do go for a takeover will Bryan get his options at 50p?
Reading thoughts on LSE, it would appear that most people feel that BM has sold his soul along with ML and SC. The feeling is that we may see a bid at 50p. Some question why SC and ML have remained silent for so long. If we are in the throes of a takeover, I would hope it is from the likes of Amazon.

Tosca increased by roughly 3m. The 12m was to someone else in my opinion. If Tosca wanted to go for a takeover and had consent from RG, he could have transferred them the lot?Something is happening and I'm staying for the ride.
Sikh. Can't argue with that. Tosca increase by approx 12 mil. RG reduces by approx 12 mil. Are Tosca going for the takeover?

Barkboo, the manipulation is sanctioned by our largest shareholders, Bod and some MM. MM no longer have the firepower to do this alone. Tosca are 12m short of 30% and could now easily get this from the market, if interested in a takeover. I doubt this is their objective? A corner seems more and more plausible.

Barky, you don't think I answered your question? In July 2014 I valued Blinkx at around 34p ... but thought it would bounce higher on speculation. I would value it lower now, as it was still profitable in 2014 ... it is not any longer. If it were a private business you'd be lucky to get 20p. Personally, I think the best outcome for shareholders would be a takeover at a premium.Currently Blinkx has an unproven business model, it is losing money and cash. It would need to start generating profit and positive cash flow before I'd value it higher. What else is there to go on but the current facts? A positive outcome is not impossible, it might well happen, but I don't see light at the end of the tunnel, yet. If your right it will be the result of good luck, not good judgement. So what is your £2.40 value based on?
08-11-2015
Yes Quil, wonderful piece of prose ... a work of fiction.Perhaps you should focus on track record and answer the following:1) how much money have Blinkx raised from investors over the life of the business?2) what is the current market capitalisation?3) what does that tell you about the management's ability to generate a return on investment? Suggests that the longer Blinkx keep going the faster the cash will dissipate on ... yet again ... funding poor investments! The longer it goes the cheaper the bid price from your friends at Tosca.So your best bet is a takeover ... sooner the better ... because time is not the friend of a poor business! Just a thought!
