Gangsters and Blinkx throwing the kitchen sink at them? The RNS was released for total devastation again. I think you would agree with that from your earlier posts. Another transfer of wealth from PIs. Symbiotic or Corner? Either way, it costs Blinkx' reputation in London. I think in the next few months, we will be the subject of a takeover.
27-08-2015
Lol. Ge2, how are your holidays?I'd like to believe in the corner, but I see more of a takeover.
takeover soon or removal of brian.
26-08-2015
1gw, you are probably correct. However, I'm happy to re-enter at 15p. What does seem incredible given the below, that we are not a takeover target? How is this exchange different from others out there, as Dan has said before verification companies take an agnostic view to inventory quality where the verification results are provided post campaign so an advertiser does not know what proportion of the traffic was bad until after the campaign has been executed and the results come through. In contrast the RhythmOne exchange pre-filters the traffic in real-time something no-one else does.Unless all the other networks are practically worthless, then there is an anomaly with the Blinkx pricing IMO.I'm glad that non executives and staff members bought in on Monday.
The only hope left is that there will be a hostile takeover and a quick fire sale which may bring in between 30 and 40 pence. But even that is looking less likely by the day. Nobody wants such soiled goods.
25-08-2015
RhythmOne/Blinkx is now a US company. I'm looking for a quick sale now. Shame that no one pressed him on potential takeover partners.Why isn't the new Blinkx corporate website launched? Did we receive just a teaser?
Well, they dodged the takeover question. I think Quil is right. we will soon hear an offer tabled. If ADTech is the way forward and we have the tech but not the partners, then the way forward is that of AOL type deal - a nice takeover. Tosca/RG will react at some point in time to realize their investment. It would be incredible that the technology will not be utilized by a larger player.
Potential takeover?
Mr blimp wants to know the likelihood of a takeover. Not going to bother with the answer

Leluot, I agree that the board are up to something. I hope it is nearer to Barkboo's ideas than a takeover. However, next month, I'm on holiday and I'm patient enough to find out the outcome. The ball is in Blinkx' court. Morality and justice versus Greed and loss of any future credibility to be trusted by shareholders.
21-07-2015
We have only 4-8 weeks before the AGM. We have to assume that we have a hostile bod. The scaffolders should arrange a takeover. ;) just kidding.
20-07-2015
Indeed Alex. Myself and Barkboo would be most aggrieved at a 60p takeover. One would like something more in the region of 150p plus. That would give me a handsome profit for the heartache over the last year. I think Sikhthebald would like 50p, so he does not suffer too much from his "naked" shorts?

LCWA is it 29.9% they need for a takeover or to make an offer? There are in the low 20s now with one more decent shareholder or upping their percentages you may be right let's hope that the board ARE not helping them by putting off the AGM and allowing the share price to stagnate

It's all speculation at the moment. It's fingers crossed that we are witnessing barkboo's cunning plan and that the board were pissed off about the BearRaid enough to do something for shareholders by getting even. And by not taking advantage of the Bearraid by going for a lowball takeover.
LCWA ... I don't have any ... your holding will do well if the results improve, they will do badly if they do not. You might get lucky with a takeover (the option package may be Brian's reward for cooperating).You guys are looking for "signs" and if you can't find any you make them up.

A quick question - if there are naked short positions, what would happen in the event of a takeover offer?
12-07-2015
Loaf, Tosca and RG are not the only players with capital. Balderton, Invoke and many board affiliated VC's have plenty of capital. The buy in by Tosca and RG must have been sanctioned by the board. For me, this is the only explanation of the boards' actions from July onwards.The markets are flush with cash. ADTech is huge and will continue to grow. Cross screen adverting will be very lucrative and Blinkx has the underpinning technology.In terms of a takeover, it could also be the case that other companies in the ADTech space were not allowed to look at the Blinkx' books. Trust is at a premium at the moment. If Tosca and RG were invited to the table, it maybe from an angle that they would have known nothing of the BearRaid and unlikely to have played a part.
86m shares held by RG and Tosca 68m shares held by other institutions (according to Morningstar) 18m shares held by ML So about 170m shares accounted for in this way. Other 230m shares likely to be held largely by private investors in my opinion. So share price very much at the mercy of private investor mood and also vulnerable to moves based on trading strategies being used by any major buyers or sellers (IMO). So exaggerated swings up when the mood is positive (e.g. RG/Toscafund holdings notices) and exaggerated swings down when the mood is negative. Highly unlikely IMO to be any attempt at or possibility of a short squeeze - more likely to be RG and/or Toscafund positioning for a lowball takeover / take private. Errors excepted. Please do your own research.

Alex, the only stumbling block will be that stocky eludes to is if they have had a profitable first qtr then try to sell on the cheap.There will be a riot!However if they have not turned a profit and fiddle the accounts then we hit 20p or below and suddenly 50p is a god send.Options.1. Turned a corner and keep delivering results, we hit 50p2. Delist from AIM through MBO, we hit 50p3. Friendly takeover with RG, Tosca, management we hit 50p-60p4. Don't deliver results then we could hit 18-20p and expect a buyout for 50p5. Hit results we go to 50p but may draw interest from another buyer could expect 50p -70pEither way 50p keeps coming up for Brian especially.
Why months later?If results are good.RG and Tosca will have a pretty good idea anyway.It will only cost them more...looks like a takeover announcement imminent and a hastily AGM thrown in?
LCWA, Tosca went from ~5% to 11% just days before the options announcement... imo, it wouldn't surprise me if they (Tosca/RG) wanted a friendly takeover.. May be months later, after H1??? we'll find out soon enough...
09-07-2015
1gw, I also don't think BM's options are to do with fy2015 performance but seems more like a departing present... there isn't a vesting period and it's before the agm... he's supposed to be up for re-election... Maybe an acquirer wanted a friendly takeover... it's all speculation at the moment, we'll know soon enough - hopefully with the Annual Report or agm over the next few weeks....
08-07-2015
It did cross my mind that an "offer" could be on the horizon, and he's setting himself up to cash in as he will most likely be sacked following a takeover.
07-07-2015
football I held these shares through thick and thin for six years and then sold because I had had enough (I still have a few but an insignificant quantity) I was actually still wanting to see the co succeed, and held no malice towards anybody. When I saw the news about the options I thought that something was afoot and my immediate reaction was there is going to be a hostile takeover and BM has just bought some life insurance. I thought maybe there's an opportunity to jump back in and make a quick trade and double my money. I have been thinking about it today and I have changed my mind. I feel very angry at the company - for the money I have lost and on behalf of other genuine holders who put their trust in them.
Seanje. That's why they have protected him with a golden parachute.If figures are good he could still get ousted.If figures are bad he could still get ousted.If he doesn't win votes he could still get ousted.If there is a takeover he could still get ousted.If RG and Tosca wish to get on the board he could still get ousted.So I guess 7 million is not bad in a form of a redundancy package.And we all know that 50p will be a cert on any decent results.
06-07-2015
Mr Ash, who is taking it private?Could it be private equity between 50-80p or a dreaded delist from AIM by the BLINKX board of directors itself for a touch over 50p....?They wouldn't, would they.?Surely not if the results are great. If your going down that road of thinking Lance then they will probably not reveal Q1 results and call an extraordinary AGM to table their ordinary offer.That would be rather risqué for them but then again this is BLNX.Can't see Tosca or RG happy about a reverse takeover, it could get messier than beggorahs shit stained sheets.Ah well, all's well. Ho hum.
I think a clever individual should take the 7 million shares given to him after all, he's earnt them through blood, sweat and tears over the last 16months.Only another 72.5% rise to go until he hits his target for remuneration.There can not be a deal on the table involving a takeover or offer as Brian would not be allowed his shares...would he?I mean ML, SC and BM are all heads of private equity funds as well as involved with BLNX so I'm sure that they would not partake in any insider dealings or disclosures that would be of detriment to them and the company they work for.If the 23% increase is fiction RG and Tosca may play?
03-07-2015
Barky ... I think you'd look good in a Fez, and there's a vacancy for a national joker now that Tommy Cooper has died. So who is the takeover company? I hope you know your reputation is on the line with this one.
02-07-2015
Afternoon all, short squeeze or a takeover. Something is happening behinds the scenes.
29-06-2015
JonC ... even if you are 100% correct on the end result, that is several years away as they can survive a long time with that cash pile. And a lot can happen in that time period - takeover, a business unit that picks up, regime change ... etc. If Blinkx was heavily in debt I'd be more in agreement.
06-06-2015
Loaf, we have to hope for a more upbeat pre AGM statement in early July, otherwise as you say we could be picked off like low lying fruit and any takeover premium might well be reduced because of the autonomy connections and the Edelman affair, well they wont help us anyway on the other hand because the market is anticipating stagnation, that the company will flatline at best, a return to expectations of say 15% growth would galvanise the SP Though the BOD and Mgmt Team have given us no reason to expect this, either by company performance, guidance statements or showing their belief and commitment by buying shares I would think that they would be able to deliver more cost cuts this year and get the loss down and generate positive cash flow but we still need more revenue coming in for bottom line profit, imo, as 1gw has ably demonstrated.
01-06-2015
To me all these large buys feel pre corporate takeover rather than mere fund managers buying. Just a thought.
30-05-2015
Gowlane - luckily, Big Time Charlie, Digitalis, pops in from time to time to offer reassurance! The end game may well be a takeover. However, in the meantime I'd would not be surprised to see this one leg up again on a stable trading statement ... with the cash in the bank they can stay in the game for a very long time. It will be interesting to watch this one from the sidelines.

Ad tech company Rocket Fuel rejects $350 million takeover bid from Gurbaksh Chahal's Gravity4 LARA O'REILLY MAY 13, 2015, 6:18 PM 30 httP://uk.businessinsider.com/rocket-fuel-rejects-gravity4-takeover-bid-2015-5?r=US

There is no takeover. But, the sector is obviously ripe for consolidation after the AOL news.
which takeover would that be?
esc, do you think you will get in before or after the takeover?
Yes Autonomy were being massively shorted at the time of the takeover.
MidasX From memory, I believe Autonomy 10-bagged from a valuation of something like £200m in the year or so prior to the takeover bid and then n-bagged again on takeover announcement. The takeover value was insane on traditional metrics like P/S and P/E and was motivated by gorilla game valuation principles.
Blinkx market cap £154 million, HP wrote down about $8 Billion if I remember correctly, would need to be one hell of a takeover premium LOL!

Perhaps a real test of BLNK management is around the corner. Rocket Fuel sold out to another tech outfit aggregating their offerings, whereas AOL has sold out to a major content network. Depending on who you end up talking with would appear to change the value of the takeover substantially (after obviously factoring out AOL's content side)
stocky It was the Squawk Box boys who were labelling the takeover as motivated by the programmatic ad platform. They had the caption: "Verizon AOL takeover for ad tool" or something like that. They were linking this with a piece they did on AOL and their programmatic ad platform last week. I think that was AOL's results which came in as boosted by the programmatic ad capability. When the chairman came on and was interviewed today, I can only recollect him talking about content, although I was doing something else while listening. Right now, Cramer is going on about "programmatic", "the word of the day" and "what it is all about". Looks like the UK stock market is a slow reactor?
08-05-2015
Perhaps it's a reverse takeover in order to list existing ad tech company? Not sure, but market seems a little underwhelmed with the offer.
06-05-2015
Another fantastic update from everyone's favourite AGM non-attender Geh2. I'm taking a leaf out of your book. I am definitely going to the AGM, but expect to have to cancel at the last minute due to an unexpected business issue - possibly a takeover or leveraged buyout. I'll never get to wear that "in SC we trust" t-shirt!
05-05-2015
just until the sp turns blue? looks pretty red to me! stocky 5 May'15 - 09:11 - 94583 of 94584 0 0 I wonder when we will get Leluot4... Wonder when stocky will tell us for the 400th time that Yahoo are about to takeover Blinkx! go stocky or get f**ked in the arse
22-04-2015
barky...lol... Pace just got takeover offer from Arris... and Pace are my largest holding... But don't tell Stocky, he sold them as he didn't see much potential...
maybe tw and gang are part of the corporate structure to drive down a share price for a bid, takeover or so funds can buy cheaply? after all the crap they gave qpp. that has been my best buy this year.
16-04-2015
could be a re-branding of the company or making it easier for a takeover.
09-04-2015
Loo loo - yes, he has his seat reserved for the AGM next to his hero SC. Of course, like every other AGM before this one, he will be unable to attend on account of a business deal, a corporate takeover or private equity deal of some sort (we would not understand). Geh2, a true captain of industry ...
08-04-2015
interesting perspective from Alex, we will probably not see a bounce in the sp but the market had priced Blinkx as sliding away and this may provide reassurance to some that they are still in the game or is that wishful thinking? they may be ripe for a low ball takeover now?
01-04-2015
Morning Good People, Another quick question or maybe more a theory - I guess the threat of a hostile takeover is off the table (if we assume that VCs, other Funds have been buying and RG is a good guy for shareholders) and that the accumulation has been done using "O" Trades. This can be the only assumption, as it has been RG and other Blinkx affiliates buying. Well, is the next strategy to get the price moving in the right direction by buying but with "AT" trades? Once the price starts moving in the right direction, momentum traders will move in, pushing the price even higher. THEN release results. The news famine now speaks volumes, as we can assume that there must have been some partnerships, contracts and movement in the last 6-8 months. I think it would be a bloodbath at the AGM if we are not at a decent price.
27-03-2015
Well Gehe if they make the growth and improve ebitda, 7-10% would be a mild projection in terms of growth indeed.We would hit 60/70p in an instant and a pound by the end of May imo.Also due to the heightened and intensive need to carve dominance in this hot sector I do not see BLNX being allowed to trade the financial year out and a takeover at over £2 is more than realistic.Never forget the but and however, if BRIAN fails to deliver?Then he has failed and so have BLNX to maintain the lead they built so early on in its creation.I'm feeling pretty confident of a multi bag, if we have no however or buts!
Dont MM have to sell? Can Blinkx still initiate a small buyback now or do we have to wait until after the results?With the attack, I guess that Blinkx felt that they were a takeover target. However, with the MMs giving away shares so easily and no announcement, I guess that they now assume that the Bear Raid was putely for profit??
26-03-2015
I'm calling 65p on results day.Over £1 by May and £2 by the end of the year, which we will never see as we will be definitely taken over as we prove our technology to be far superior than the competitors.Ps football go to the Blinkx website and relook at investors page, all results revealed and new PRESIDENT agency doing what the old one should have years ago.Lots of information indexed for a corporate takeover know.?
13-03-2015
Morning all, gowlane, what makes you think that? Link for above post, Mark Slaters comment from October on sector consolidation. httP://www.dailymail.co.uk/money/investing/article-2801514/mark-slater-six-shares-potential-takeover-targets.html
09-03-2015
GEHE, we know how fast this sector is growing especially the any device any time segment.As soon as BLNX's results are announced I really do not see them not becoming a takeover target.My guess is Amazon. They really need BLNX technology to put the icing on the cake!!
