haydock: Up in lights on ADVFN : blur Group Shares Soar as Big Customers Sign Up Share On Facebook Print Alert Blur (LSE:BLUR) Intraday Stock Chart Today : Tuesday 21 July 2015 Click Here for more Blur Charts. By Rory Gallivan LONDON--Shares in blur Group PLC (BLUR.LN) soared Tuesday after the online services exchange platform said its service that targets businesses with 50 or more employees is getting more customers, including large firms such as consumer goods supplier Unilever PLC. blur, whose aim is to be an "Amazon or Ebay for businesses" with an exchange offering services such as design and accountancy, said it is also winning repeat business from clients such as the French food group Danone SA. "Our platform is, more than ever, ready to service the business needs of the larger enterprise organization," said Chief Executive Philip Letts. blur launched on the London Stock Exchange in 2012 and became a darling of the U.K. tech scene after its share price soared. But its shares sank following a series of revenue warnings and remain well short of previous highs. Shares at 1013 GMT, up 5 pence, or 22.5%, at 30 pence valuing the company at 14.1 million pounds ($22 million).

j777j: GECR buy note on Blur Full report htTP://static.squarespace.com/static/5371fb22e4b0a7ee8e9a6c3e/t/53f5f52ee4b0c49dae131837/1408628014063/blur21082014.pdf blur Group: The World's Leading Exchange For Business Services blur Group is an early-stage technology company that owns and operates a leading online exchange for buying and selling business services. Used by some of the world's biggest companies, the platform offers unparalleled benefits, including significantly shortening project cycles and lowering execution costs. We expect blur Group to see considerable growth, particularly given the significant size of its addressable market - driven by the expected ongoing global shift towards ecommerce - the lack of competition, the high barriers to entry and its ever growing market position. Accordingly, with the shares taking a recent hit, due to the change in its revenue recognition policy, and the group stepping up its marketing efforts, we feel now presents an attractive entry point and we initiate coverage with a recommendation of buy and target price of 117.96p. The World's Leading Business Services Exchange The Global Services Exchange provides corporate buyers access to the largest pool of business services suppliers via an online platform that is simple and easy-to-use, transparent, accessible and secure. Essentially, it is to business services what Amazon and ebay are to consumer goods. Significant Addressable Market Using economic data and data from listed companies, we estimate that the global business services e-commerce market size was worth $150bn in 2011. Assuming that the global business services sector grows at a similar rate as world GDP growth and global business services e-commerce sales as a proportion of total sales grows by just 100 basis points a year, we extrapolate the 2011 addressable market figure and estimate blur's addressable market reached $265bn by 2013, and will grow to $641bn by 2018. First Mover Advantage We believe that there is no other online exchange for buying and selling business services, allowing blur to benefit from first mover advantage. Furthermore, given the high number of buyers and suppliers required for an effective exchange, we believe the barriers to entry are high. Attractive Valuation Using the FCF as our preferred valuation method, we have derived a target value of $94.14m (£55.56m) or 117.96p per share, which suggests upside to the current share price of 84%. We feel that the assumptions used are conservative, particularly given that we have assumed that the ecommerce share of the market remains at just 3%, blur's share of the market only reaches 1% and given that we have used a high discount rate of 20%. In addition, taking the average EV/Sales of similar, but mature, e-commerce companies of 2.2x, we have derived a valuation of $88.99m (£52.51m) or 111.50p.

hamidahamida: So why aren't N+ on their investor page then.Fact is the share price is on a downward spiral every 6 months they are coming out with profit warnings so far 4 and counting. Most of the past revenue will be written off now,aggressive accounting springs to mind.Big Uncertainty surrounds the share price and investors hate uncertainty Letts has created a big hole even he doesn't know how big this write-off hole is, profit warnings seems to be on going 6 monthly problem Management don't know what write-off so many aggressive accounting skeletons, massive creditability issue, big uncertainty, investigation by the financial authorities With all this uncertainty share price could end up near 15p
petersmith3: PPG - one of the safest aim stocks with 10-bag potential! Plutus has already been awarded management contracts for 5 X 20MW generating sites. Each will cost £5.4 million to construct and are funded by between £3 million and 3.6 million in EIS equity and the balance in project or asset finance debt. Rockpool Investments has managed to raise £17.8 million in EIS funding. I understand that each 20MW site could potentially generate on average £340,000 net annual profit for Plutus, even if only running for 120 hours per annum. So 10 sites (the stated target within 3 years)would be likely to produce £3.2 million in net profit to Plutus, equivalent to 0.43 pence per share. If all 10 are contracted under the Capacity Market, this would add another £1.5 million in net profit (equivalent to a further 0.20 pence per share), making a total of 0.63 pence net profit per share. This is all well and good, but it is already on the cards I understand that this 3 year target of 10 sites will be smashed in the first year. I believe we could be more than double that number of sites by August 2016, in which case we are talking of between 1.5 pence and 2 pence net profit per share. So the price target for the share should be a minimum of 20 pence by August 2016. If this comes about (20 sites plus) the sentiment and probably further institutional investment stakes will ensure that it goes north of 25 pence a share. So this would mean a 2,500 % increase on the current share price.
j777j: 4% of the co has changed hands in the last couple of days. Also this from Citywire this morning 6 shares the pros are buying and selling Costar bags more Blur There’s no other way but up for battered Blur Group (BLUR), JO Hambro’s Mark Costar has decided. Costar has bought another 55,000 shares in Blur, worth around £46,300, to take his total stake to 5.2 million shares. That means he now owns 11% of the firm. Costar focuses on cheap companies, and Blur is certainly going for a song too: its share price has crashed 86% so far this year. The universal fear about Blur is that its business model – it offers an online marketplace to tender for projects from accountancy to app design – isn’t profitable. Indeed, for the past five years Blur has lost money. However, stereotypes about dotcom businesses can be deceiving and Blur recently confirmed that the value of its project bookings for the first half of 2014 had leapt by more than 200% from last year. Citywire AA-rated Costar, who has now managed the JO Hambro UK Growth fund for 13 years, has backed more winners than losers in that time: his fund has returned 222% since launch compared with 123% from the FTSE 100.
j777j: Edison see £10 a share..... UPDATE - blur Group bolsters board By Jamie Nimmo October 01 2013, 9:15am blur's chief executive Philip Letts said the hire is "key" to building on the company's momentum to dateblur's chief executive Philip Letts said the hire is "key" to building on the company's momentum to date ---ADDS SHARE PRICE, ANALYST COMMENT AND PRICE TARGET--- S-commerce specialist blur Group (LON:BLUR) has signed up David Sherriff to its board as a non-executive director. Sherriff is the chief executive of London-listed, IT services firm Microgen (LON:MCGN). blur's chief executive Philip Letts said the hire is "key" to building on the company's momentum to date. "As blur Group seeks to capitalize on its share of the $2 trillion global services industry, the non-executive director team becomes a strategic cornerstone of this growth," said Letts. "David brings an exceptional track record in growing public, international technology companies, having been instrumental in growing ECsoft Group in the early 90s and more recently in senior roles at Microgen plc, where he was appointed chief executive officer in 2011." David Sherriff said: "This is a very exciting time in this British company's evolution and I look forward to working with the other members of the board and support the industrialisation of its Exchange following the launch of blur 3.0 and build on the success achieved to date in the s-commerce market." The share price rose 3% to 437p on the news and is up 460% in the year to date making it one of AIM's top performers in 2013. "blur continues to build and strengthen its operational and management structure to support its strong growth, ensuring it remains well positioned to build on its positive momentum and first mover advantage," said Tintin Stormont, analyst at N+1 Singer. She said the company's third quarter update should confirm the "continuing strong trajectory." Tuesday's news follows a series of material announcements that have revealed blur is delivering on its huge promise as a potentially disruptive global exchange for services. The research house Edison reckons the stock has plenty more headroom up to £10 a share if certain landmarks are met. It said blur's continued strong momentum is supported by the growth in average deal size on its platform, project completion rates and repeat business. This "enhances the prospect of the network effect coming into play and helps de-risk the proposition", analysts Bridie Barrett Schmidt and Dan Ridsdale added. "Given the substantial market opportunity, if the network effect really takes hold, then maintaining a more rapid growth trajectory is possible," they went on. A scenario in which revenues double each year to 2020 would yield a value close to £10 per share, they concluded. Personally I think co's like this are highly likely to get taken over at a healthy premium, before they get to big. I said before this has got a £25 a share feel about it,in a couple of years. Well someone has already come up with a £10 figure.
j777j: "Pros" tend to take profits on the way up as the share price increases by 100% to nearly 800%. Effectively most will be sitting on free shares,or at the very least,extremely cheap shares. Let's look what progress has been made in another 12 months. They are almost at 10,000 projects. They have bolstered the board further with a Pwc veteran as a non exec director and head of audit.
j777j: A 50% retracement of the fall from the year's high around 106 puts the share price near 64p. It took years for the co to reach 5,000 projects listed,which it achieved in may 2014. Just 16 months later they are approaching 10,000 projects listed. This milestone reached, with much more stringent credit checks and criteria for listing. Quite an achievement.
erogenous jones: Thank you haydock. No, I do not like the numbers at all and I have only given them a cursory look - roughly 6 seconds worth if truth be told. There is no danger whatsoever in the company making a profit as the business model is fundamentally flawed. It is flawed because the staff do not actually understand business, are not themselves expert in the areas in which they are trying to match parties and I would not be in the least surprised if they are simply there to answer a telephone and try to find resolution to any dispute. Once cash starts to grow, then and only then is it possible for brokers to give any credible guide for institutional support. The matter of a bankrupt beancounter having been appointed reflects the competency of the managers, their suppliers and their staff. Sorry but this is the best light I can place on the company. Time will tell, but I would not be surprised if Blur goes bust or, is taken over when the share price falls to single figures which it surely will if the underlying malaise is not resolved. But, hey, I am just an amateur stock picker, left my "profits" to grow and have seen them shrink to a pretty meaningless sum. I am not inclined to buy any more until at least the appointment of a new beancounter and 2 trading updates are published
