|Not exactly forming a queue to be CEO of Box are they.They obviously havent got anybody lined up for the job so that was a load of pish.I think we need this position to be filled before we can move forward.Bit like the Mary Celeste,everything intact but no one at the helm.|
|very surprised at the drop in share price here.. the company is moving along nicely and the buys are still coming in .. trying to top up where i can..|
|That's a big one|
|£10k buy on box and mms hiding other buys on isdx...
Mugged off pi,s dropping it yesterday too collect panic sells for bigger orders.|
|Appointment of new CEO will be the catalyst. Also need to see where casino cash stands at the moment. Feels like it's going to be a non starter as there has not been an update on operations for a while. Expect will trade between this level and 0.25 until we get more news. RC|
The second half has always been significantly stronger than the first half so I would expect an improved profit performance on increased revenue. Additionally the bulk of the integration costs should have been taken in the first half. As you mention they are generating cash and do look very cheap. I can't see them staying at this level, with a prospective PE for this year which looks to be around 4 or 5 (possibly even lower if they have a good second half). Eventually I believe the market will wake up to this, it's just a question of when.|
|Just added 500k at 18.25p shown in red. Looks very cheap to me. Most aim companies burning cash, box making cash and should grow now new platforms are integrated.|
|I have added a million, that's me done until 6p|
|same as you mostyn......it basically states that things are running along smoothly. and will continue to improve into H2 and 2017...what more do they want?|
|I wonder what investors were expecting to give a negative reaction. Profits were as expected, and the 2nd half is always the stronger half. The PE looks to be around 5 at worst so they look undervalued. They seem to have plenty of cash for the size of business so no problems there. The statement wasn't particularly exciting so this may have disappointed a few. Odd reaction......|
|I think it looks good for the future, should start to see good revenues across all businesses with growing profits as each increase market share|
|Rubbish statement, some Investers managed to sell yesterday, insider information? very disappointed with overall performance|
|Half-Yearly Report for the period ended 31 July 2016
29 September 2016
The half year to 31 July 2016 has seen revenue grow 13% to £1.125m (£0.993m in the six months to 31 July 2015) delivering an operating profit for the six months to 31 July 2016 of £296,000. This compares to an operating profit of £330,000 for the six months ended to 31 July 2015.
The first half of the year has seen some additional administrative expenses through increased board size and ongoing costs of integrating the two companies acquired at the beginning of the year. Having said that we see a 39% improvement in comprehensive income, rising to £288,000 (from £206,000 in the first half of 2015) due to no corporation tax being chargeable.
As the Company moves forward it is now able to invest in strengthening the teams that are responsible for delivery, and we have appointed a new Head of Finance, reporting to Andrew Flitcroft, the Company's Finance Director, who will be tasked with unifying financial organisation within the Company. Additionally we are continuing to look for a new CEO and will update as and when appropriate.
The Company continues to improve its existing products as well as developing new services. . The Company has changed the name of its subsidiary Freepaymaster Ltd to Emex Technologies Ltd with effect from 26 September in order to simplify the payments division branding. Our growing network of corresponding financial institutions means that Emex Technologies Ltd will soon be able to issue virtual IBAN numbers to companies and individuals making the use of our alternative payment platforms as familiar as using an everyday bank. Integrating the Freepaymaster.com platform with our credit card gateway, means faster settlements and lower costs for our existing clients, plus our merchants can offer their customers an increased number of simple and safe ways to deposit and withdraw funds. As stated at our annual general meeting, we intend to market Casino Cash in due course, subject of course to market conditions, the Freepaymaster.com platform enabling us to manage the real time balancing of funds for casinos in order to satisfy gambling regulatory requirements.
Prize Provision Services Limited ("PPS"), which operates The Weather Lottery, has seen significant positive change over the past quarter. Although trading decreased slightly, it has begun to make improvements across the business with many more due to be introduced in the next six months.
In August, the PPS introduced revamped marketing communications with its clients. Early indications suggest a positive impact on player numbers and the company will develop the strategy over the coming months. In addition, marketing, sales and account management will be given greater resource in order to increase sales revenue. There is a small increase in insurance tax (9.5% rising to 10.0% on 1 October 2016) which will increase costs slightly, but following on from the launch of Direct Debit as a payment method for players, the company will introduce direct bank payments for clients before the end of September which will offset this cost.
Direct client payments are the first of a number of improvements which the clients will see. A revamped admin centre which will give clients a greater understanding of their lottery and allow clients to self-serve in a number of areas, is in production and due for release in October.
In conjunction with greater educational support being offered by the company, the self-serve elements of the revamped admin centre is expected to drive an increase player numbers for many clients.
The joint venture between Soccerdome Ltd and Nineteen Twelve Holdings Ltd (the "JV") which sees Astro Kings Ltd operating the football pitches at the Harvey Hadden Sports Village in Nottingham is in the embryonic phase. The ground is open and marketing activity being carried out to raise awareness of the facility and ultimately increase sales.
The JV is expected to reach breakeven in early 2017 with only minor financial support, if any, needed from the Company in the interim.
Boxhill's payments division has a healthy sales pipeline and the Company is actively looking at new opportunities as they occur in our dynamic market. The Company's goal is to continue to develop or acquire best-in-class payment and related software whilst maintaining positive revenue growth.|
