b1ggles: I suppose, to give the benefit of any doubt, the placing must have been in discussion when, as recently as a week ago, the share price was 47.25p, which would have made it only a 13% discount. The recent price peak does make it look like a massive discount, I must admit, but it might have been hard to say, 'Hang on a minute, the shares are now worth more than that'.
aylingd: Still looking at the half-yr figures but agree that profit this year seems unlikely now despite a 'suggestion' a few weeks ago that they may break-even. Apart from Tom Black directors don't seem to have much skin in the game. The placing is at a huge discount to recent share price; given their prospects would have thought it could have been on better terms than that. The recent 'shares out on loan' thing stinks as well. For me, the above doesn't install confidence that the directors interests are aligned with (small) shareholders. I don't doubt the sales will keep coming but I think I'll keep monitoring for more evidence they can turn a profit. Shame, but may well be another jam tomorrow AIM story. D.

Business looks strong, and the contracts slippage looks slight. 26/02/2015 07:03 UKREG Digital Barriers plc Trading Update Trading The Group continues to secure contract awards with key customer organisations in both domestic and international markets, further examples of which have been announced separately today. However, the timing of two expected significant contract awards in relation to the Group's financial year-end means that revenues for the period will fall below the Board's initial expectations, although they are expected to be stronger than the prior year (FY14: GBP19.0m). As a result, losses for the period will also exceed Board expectations, although they are expected to show a year-on-year improvement (FY14: Adjusted Loss before Tax* GBP12.0m). Cash at the year-end is expected to be approximately GBP8.0m, compared to GBP14.2m on 31 March 2014. The two contracts in question are now expected to close and be delivered early in the first half of the coming financial year and the Group's broader sales pipeline remains strong. On account of this, and coupled with the operational improvements outlined below, the Board expects that the revenue risk associated with deal closure timings will now begin to reduce. Consequently, the Board still aims for the Group's performance by the end of the financial year ending 31 March 2016 to be break-even. ... This bodes well for the business of related company GOS Systems, owned by TGL. Especially as DGB looks to be more cyber-focussed than GOS Systems, without GOS's cellular capabilities. This probably means that GOS Systems has higher barriers to entry and margins than DGB. From page 9 of GOS's November 2014 investor presentation (see post by someuwin 18 Dec'14 - 11:05 - 2882 of 4412 2 0 ): "• Cellular is the 'hard to do' piece • Significant technology barriers to entry and hence few market players" Coincidentally, the TGL share price of 0.415p is now almost exactly 1% of DGB's (41p).
rambutan2: Bit of a horror story on the share price since the summer, with another lurch down this week. Interims are out next week, so is there a placing to accompany them? Or is there just a buyers strike until the said results give some guidance on where things stand? Hmmm...
l0wrdr: O/T pinnacle telecom, where tom black has recently bought a huge stake 11th November 2010 Analyst: Philip Morrish Email: Tel: 0207 562 3362 Pinnacle Telecom Group - Closed Year Strongly, Forecasts Upped and Target Price Increased to 0.79p (0.53p) Key Data EPIC PINN Share Price 0.39p NMS 0.36p-0.42p Spread 300,000 Total no of Shares 1.87 billion Market Cap GBP 7.28 million 12 Month Range 0.27p-0.62p Market AIM Website Sector Telecommunications Contact Alan Bonner, Chief Executive 0845 119 2100 Pinnacle Telecom Group plc is an acquisitive AIM listed provider of hosted integrated telecommunications solutions, specifically focused upon the huge UK SME market. The company, currently over half way through its strategic repositioning, is starting to strongly deliver as demonstrated by the graph: Half Yearly Trend in Turnover & Operating Profit, below. Indeed, Pinnacle reported a maiden operating profit (clean of amortisation and exceptional charges) of GBP40,841 for the six months ended 31st March 2010 compared with a loss of GBP413,695 for the comparable period a year earlier. The strong first half performance has continued into the second half with the company providing the connectivity circuits for the television and radio broadcasting of over 42 major events, including the Pope's visit, all the political parties conferences, and the Glastonbury and Reading Festivals. Moreover, Pinnacle's hosted communications solution is fully endorsed and extensively used by the BBC. Indeed, on 14th October, the company was awarded the best Enterprise Solution award at the prestigious 2010 Comms National Awards for its BBC solution. Pinnacle has rapidly become the market leader in this market segment and on 7th October 2010, the company confirmed that '... The events business has helped ensure that the Company will deliver turnover for the year ended 30th September 2010, ahead of market expectations.' In light of this comment, we have edged up our sales expectations for the financial years ending 30th September 2010 and 2011 by 1.5% to GBP6.5 million and GBP8.6 million respectively although not as yet fully reflected in EBITDA margins due to further technical infrastructure investment. Additionally, the company successfully raised GBP0.45 million before expenses through a placing of 128,571,429 new Ordinary shares at 0.35p each, a then premium of 18.64% to the 21st September mid-market price, for general working capital requirements so that the company can continue to capitalise upon the growing number of opportunities; we estimate that the group closed the 2010 financial year with net cash of GBP0.5 million. Pinnacle remains comfortably on track with its strategic repositioning into a hosted integrated communications solutions provider; the business has been stabilised, management team strengthened and its market opportunities and service offerings have been clearly defined - exemplified by the company's market leadership position in the 'events' market segment. The company is now beginning to release its growth potential as demonstrated by its return to an operating profit before exceptional items while the recent strengthening of the balance sheet will ensure that further opportunities to accelerate growth that is consolidating will not be missed. This week Daisy Group agreed to acquire SpriTel, a broadly similar business to Pinnacle, on EV/Sales multiple of 1.57 times sales for the financial year ended 30th April 2010 and is consistent with our approach to valuing Pinnacle. Therefore, with the shares trading at 0.39p, the 2009 financial year Enterprise Value was GBP4.899 million, which is 1.53 times reported 2009 sales of GBP3.192 million. We estimate that by the end of the 2011 financial year, the group will be EBITDA profitable and increasingly cash generative, such that (in the highly unlikely event of no further acquisitions) Pinnacle will close the year with net cash of GBP1.62 million. Therefore, if the shares were to trade on a similar EV/sales multiple, then, based on our revised but still conservative 2011 forecasts, they would be 0.79p. With the shares currently trading at 0.39p we re-iterate our recommendation of buy.

george57: To the guys that own shares in DGB, It is worth noting that Tom Black has recently purchased £200k worth of PINN shares at an 18.8% premium to the share price at the time. A few of us on the PINN board are guessing there could be something significant brewing between the two companies. Anyone have any thoughts? PINN can be bought at 0.39p at the moment.
bleuville: Positive write up in the Tempus column in The Times today. I won't put my limited keyboard skills to the test by attempting the complete article but here's the final comment: "Buying into DB is buying into a management team that expanded Detica from a £20m minnow into a £540m takeover target in just 6 years. Although it is early stage and the stock has already risen to 171p from its 128p flotation price in February, the business is on the up. Buy for its substantial potential." Seems to have gone down well with a 6% rise in the share price.
glasshalfull: ITM - I'm also keeping an eye on the"son" of Detica. Fantastic management team that is already proven in implementing a buy and build strategy. My only issue is the premium you are currently paying for this expertise. They are currently 35% above cash raised and wha in essence is a cash shell that will be the vehicle to create a substantial business. I'd be more inclined to monitor at this stage as I believe more than fully valued. A recent SCSW article mentioned; "Dealings started on 4 March following a placing of £20m new shares at 100p to value the company at £24.8m. At the latest 126.5p, clearly investors are hopeful that Digital Barriers will be "son of Detica." Established in 1971, Black took control of Detica in 1997 when he led a VC-backed management buyout. He floated the business in 2002 for £87m and subsequently sold it to BAE for £531m in 2008. Detica's mainstay was the supply of IT professionals on development / application management assignments, usually involving applications for managing large data volumes for government departments. Over the years, it went on to develop high volume data screening systems to uncover large-scale fraud, money laundering and other types of organised crime." I have however invested in ASW which is undertaking a similar buy and build strategy with proven management in the NHS technology arena and has 18months worth of adding businesses which now look poised to deliver. Like Digital Barriers it sat on a premium but with the various strands coming together and static share price for sometime it now looks very reasonably valued IMHO. Hopefully the same scenario will unfold with Digital Barriers and appropriate time to buy in. Regards GHF
