|Shocking figures but it seems there will be a further drain on the cash resources of £7 million in the current year. At last, it is clear why the dispute in the boardroom about selling the company, which would have been the best I suspect for all current stakeholders - it seems the company is being run by an accountant that has been good at cutting costs, so he may feel that he can get on top of the issues, or more troubling is that they are just running it to keep themselves in well paid jobs for as long as the cash lasts. Slowing sales and loss of market share is a worry they have, and other than look for higher margin business they do not seem to have a plan in place.
Maybe at the current share price someone might make an offer of around 3p - 4p a share.
Taken from the company website:
" We love ideas and we’re just as open eared and minded to yours."
I doubt they are or they would have taken the former CEO`s advice and put it up for sale.|
|It seems they are leaving the trading update until Friday, which does not bode well imo but hey hoo you never know on odd occasions one does get a pleasant surprise. The way the share price has been dropping though makes that unlikely I suspect, though on little volume, for example a 11% drop on a sale of 25k shares yesterday.|
|Clearly the deferred trading update until week commencing 13.02.17 is having a very negative impact on the share price on top of all the issues that seems to have surrounded the changes on the board, with the difference of opinions about the future direction of the company.
Hopefully they with also have a new CEO in place at that time but one positive imo is that the CFO has effectively taken charge, ruling out serious concerns about the finances of the company.
Until then I doubt there will be much activity.|
|Were you one of the original holders prior to the name change etc. Hectorp?|
|Yes you would! need to be brave to hold down to here!|
|Lack of focus on important areas tends to be a problem with the folks that think they are creative and full of their own ability, rather than appoint someone that can truly
concentrate on the important areas of the business - cash flow - slow payers - debt recovery - investors information - concentration on keeping the facts and figures up to date on the website, to provide investors with confidence, and then get on with selling their flair.|
|Just looking at debtors clocktower, which stand at £9.2 million,against total revenues for the 6 month period of £9.6 million,with 90% attributable to advertising,leads me to wonder if there are bad debts in there or merely exceedingly slow payers.I wonder what the industry norm is and what BBSN terms of trade might be.
The web site presents sorry picture,where the investor page is out of date and incomplete. In the entertainment sector one would expect more pazazz.
I see you have Sophie Barowman as a contributor .|
|I look forward to your input in due course mudbath, regardless of its nature, as it will as always be well researched and objective. I have no illusions, hence the thread title. "You need to be Brave" maybe after you have looked at it, we may think it should have been "You need to be a Plonker"
Recent events have not been as expected but may turnout for the better. However I did not like the way the CEO of the time handled the selling of stock some months ago by someone that was bound by an agreement not to sell stock in the company until a certain time.
The prospects if handled well could be huge and as you say, the thread might soon attract the trolls but no worry as long as it remains clean, I do not object.|
|Good morning clocktower.
I have been looking at this share of yours and intend to go deeper.As you say,BBSN has a way to go,yet the outcome could be very exciting for holders if the BOD can execute their business plan.I will revisit the thread if I find anything worth contributing.
Coincidentally,my main current main investment is in the same sector,being ZOO which provides services allowing quality TV and movie content to be subtitled in any language and prepared for sale with all major online retailers as well as on physical products. ZOO's clients are some of the best-known brands in the world including major Hollywood studios, global broadcasters and independent distributors.They offer a range of other cloud based services.
On Thursday a trading update stated that EBITDA for the ZOO year ending 31 March would be a minimum of US$1.8 million(£1.43million).As ZOO's market cap is only £3.1 million,the shares seem something of a bargain.(It was Bakunin who suggested ZOO to me almost 3 years ago and I have taken an interest in the company ever since as B does seem to know his onions!)
Have a good weekend and sorry for the off topic bit.
You have a nice quiet thread here with no trolls
Just wait until until the share price starts to motor though,for as in the Field of Dreams,they will surely come..imo.|
This could be very positive news - Will Ashley go on to join a company that wants to make an offer for BBSN or are they seeing the fruits of success and refusing to let Ashley run with them to another company.
Anyone seen the press talk they have referred too?|
|Looking at the recent way trades have been worked it seems someone is building a stake while not taking the share price far beyond the last buy at 5.2p If the selling drys up now a little more steady buying might see a little tick up but I expect it will only be on more positive news that we will see it head towards 10p|
|New video at Proactive Investors is here: http://tinyurl.com/gmm58mc|
|Results today are quire encouraging in the speed of teh turnaround. Plenty of cash in the bank and now revenue growth to take this back to profitability. Terrible ride, but the new team feel like they are doing all the right things.|
|Telbap, that is just due to the timing of the MM showings on L2 is it not.|
|What do you infer from that telbap? Are you saying they are tempting buyers in by doing that? As I only invest for long term growth and dividends I do not bother with level 2 or follow my investments on a daily basis, so have limited understanding of these things but if you could add to your post I would be grateful as I have only just started looking at this stock. I have not bought this stock and expect I will wait until the results are released.|
|I love the way this is played up premarket almost every day. Then nicely drops back once the opening bell rings.|
|While you might not consider it cheap at this moment it will look cheap come the the figures, as I expect them to come with a very upbeat statement that will forecast profits - the profits will come due to the new focus of the company and increasing turnover coupled with the advantage they now have because of the exchange rate, as so much of the companies earnings are not in sterling.
I think this has the potential to have long term value and exciting growth prospects for those investors that take a longer term view of investments like this. DYOR.|
|I've been looking at this as I've done well out of stocks in the sector before. I do like this one but it's not cheap at the minute but that could change if the last update continues. It's a conviction share ATM but I'll probably pick up a few.|
|Looking for a job? BB are looking for staff.
Other interesting stuff about BB:
|telbap, I expect profits will be substantial for those that hold on this stock, with the first real visible profits coming after the full figures are released with the forward looking statement, which will be the key to the tangible future prospects.
|marc - what handle were you using then? Yell seems a life time away.|
|There will be a lot of others putting their toes in the water before long I expect telbap, as the transformation from Rightster become apparent from the growth in turnover, as a provider to social video broadcaster. This will also benefit from the current exchange rates as 75% earnings are not in GBP.
I expect the real increase to come with the finial figures in August, as the forward looking statement should underline the expected profit going forward, as growth could be explosive.
"Ashley MacKenzie, CEO of Brave Bison Group Plc, said: "We are delivering well against our plan and have a growing sense of confidence about the future. The business is undergoing a transformation from a third-party technology provider to a social video broadcaster. Following our recent re-launch as Brave Bison, we are now being recognised as a disruptive global digital media company with intellectual property ownership, social talent and scaled distribution on social platforms as core pillars. This makes Brave Bison an attractive partner for global brands to capture the value of online video"
Being recognised disruptive global digital company also will make it an attractive target before long imo.DYOR|
|V small toe in the water this am. More a punt than a position really. Hoping that it is not one of the end of year write offs!|
