silkstag: Prediction) After the Sept 2014 £26.6m funding round EPO share price was 42p. House broker price target was 50% rise to 61p. SS price target was 85% crash to 6p. By July 2016 it had crashed 70% to 13p. !!! Do you score that Sept 2014 SS price crash prediction at more or less than 95/100? !!! Analysis) Extracts with Sept 2014 price crash prediction (SS posts 10629-10633): "EPO management have proven themselves to be 'dirty dishonest pigs' eg breaching AiM rules by not downgrading expectations when they knew that they would fall far short, apparently to deceive investors into subscribing shares at inflated valuations; thus failure to hit forecasts issued to support a funding round should be expected. ... the forecast 2015 profit of £0.5m looks like a bare-faced lie peddled by management; assume it will be a loss and probably the usual £5m loss. ... STRONG SELL before lousy numbers far below expectations come out again ... why is it fair to call EPO management 'dirty dishonest pigs'?: a) AiM rule 11 is mandatory so as not to deceive investors. We know it certainly looks like EPO management deliberately breached it when deceiving IFC into investing on 29 May 2013: "General disclosure of price sensitive information 11. An AIM company must issue notification without delay of any new developments which are not public knowledge concerning a change in: ♦ its financial condition; ♦ its sphere of activity; ♦ the performance of its business; or ♦ its expectation of its performance, which, if made public, would be likely to lead to a substantial movement in the price of its AIM securities". b) EPO management concealed their previous first choice metric (% change in transaction volume) when it likely went bad. That shows that governance procedures failed in the finance function and NXDs. Every accountant and experienced NXD at EPO knows Accounting Principles require Consistency. c) Concealed split between transaction revenue and non-recurring revenue. EPO management did not want the market to know how slowly transactions are growing, if at all? d) Concealed split of Baydonhill revenue in interim 31-12-13 accounts to try to cover up stall in core business. e) etc. Honesty and governance obliges management to follow standard rules so investors can fairly assess risk-reward. The EPO dirty dishonest pigs seem to breach those rules when it suits them. Who knows what other irregularities may be involved in having won other large clients? Management are either honest or they are not. The x4 in share price [11p to 44p from March 2010 to Oct 2014] has apparently been fuelled by deceit, so it will crash 85% just like previous EPO management's deceit bubble crashed the price 85% in 2009. All IMHO. DYOR. ... This supply-demand deterioration will worsen if I am also right that the 2015 forecast of £20m revenue and £0.5m profit was deceitfully induced by the dirty dishonest pigs (aka EPO management) to dupe Oppenheimer Fund into overpaying in the round - just as apparently happened on 29 May 2013 with IFC. Forecast downgrades should rout the price ..." !!! Do you score that Sept 2014 SS analysis behind the price crash prediction at more or less than 95/100? !!! Future) Same EPO virgin CEO issued fundraising forecast in Sept 2017. Subsequent FY17 loss downgrade has already started to slice the share price. Downgrades for fy18, fy19 etc will again 'rout the price'. MANDATORY SELL. Same pattern of false forecasts to raise funds at an inflated valuation, followed by multiple late downgrades that end up reported as rampant actual losses. All imho. dyor

silkstag: 1) Record fy17 loss -£12.1m Downgrade from loss -£9 5m issued 3 weeks ago. Other downgrades. Downgrade from +£19.8m profit issued March 15. 2) Fy18 and fy19 forecasts wholly unsafe. 3) Average revenue per transaction still sliding. Another -15% in fy17. Crashed -35% in fy16. 4) Turbo-bloat overheads from £26m fy17 to £33m fy18. 5) Tripple whammy will mushroom forecast losses. 6) Massive seller overhang on LSE orderbook today. Traders who punted the placing are screwed say 15m shares left to dump. Say 50m holders who relied on the breakeven lies so never agreed this wildly higher risk profile and lower reward profile due to delay, huge losses and dilution. 7) 6p price reduction needed jyst to correct £36m valuation error on the c£12m fx turnover bought for and worth x1 but valued x4 in 18p share price. 8) 7 reasons why EPO share price is a falling knife toward 4p in Oct 2019 and 1 for 10 share consolidation (like 1 for 7 in 2005). 9) Falling knife is slicing through mugs 'topping up'. Wish them well and SELL to them. All imho. Dyor

silkstag: "Slip sliding away, slip sliding away. You know the nearer your destination, the more you slip sliding away" [respect to Simon and Garfunkel, who might in theory be shorting EPO as I type] The EPO share price has moved into a falling knife phase, as I predicted it would, toward 15p and maybe beyond onto 10p. When it was mid 20p but the only Bid of size (100k) was @19.25p I predicted it would soon be hit. It was. Now the only Bid of size (100k) is 18p. I expect that to be hit soon. The seller overhang is likely from disappointed traders who punted the placing, and anxious holders who did not sign up for the newly admitted hiked risk and lower reward profile (management just abandoned the 'EPO will pass breakeven in 6-12 months' serial falsity). Traders and investors both heavy sellers. Further, the 20p placing price was predicated on forecasts that many, like me, believe to be falsely inflated just like the 2014 fundraising forecasts turned out to be. So that figure is superseded. Confidence in the placing price is rightly bust. EPO merits a large valuation downgrade, factoring in more realistic forecasts, and that new management will be needed in 2 years when it needs more funding. But the losses will have mushroomed by then. EPO desperately needs to cut costs now and it will be harder in 2 years. The market needs to find a clearance price that factors in all the problems. I think 10p is far too high, as I expect EPO will suffer multiple earnings downgrades and the share price will slide and slide every time. MANDATORY SELL. All imho. Dyor (Backdoor-Ssr uses a 'member of staff' for that, because he is self-proclaimed as really important and very powerful)

silkstag: The order book is stacked with seller overhang and at the moment only market-makers on the bid side. Never seen it with not a single different buyer. Another portent of doom that the EPO share price is in a falling knife phase. Confidence is busted. MANDATORY SELL as it slides toward 15p and maybe toward 10p. All imho. Dyor

silkstag: You ignore the problem. Market currently (mis)values EPO at x4 turnover. EPO conceals the fx split. FY7 was about £12m FX. FX is not worth £48m. More like the 'generic business' x1 it paid for it so £12m. £36m over-valuation. 500m issued shares so 7p per EPO share price correction required. That is my point. EPO paid £6m up-front for FX when it had £6m turnover. They paid c£2m later and it blundered (lost) £5m in one transaction in early 2016 but if FX can string together three solid years of profit (FY17 being the first) then it will be an OK investment by EPO. It will be worth £12m. OK. But not worth £48m. 7p price fall needed just for this. The 25% claimed operating margin is a porky. Already explained. They capitalise implementation costs then don't include its amortisation in operating margin, so it is meaningless. Dirty presentation of a false metric. Fake news out of EPO's fake news cannon! EPO will fail any trade investor due diligence so can never be trade sold. Dirty management. Dirty numbers. Dirty company! STRONG SELL all imho. dyor.

isaready: Wig, this is the same person way back in 2013 who was slagging off this company. She thought honestly EPO would have died by now. Through bitterness, slagging continues and though their revenue has gone from 2 million to 22 million, she still moans like its the end of the month every day. Poor thing. On one hand she was a serial bull, ignoring facts as below and talking to herself and now, a serial bear, again, ignoring facts and talking to herself. SilkStag - 12 Oct 2012 - 13:22:52 - 8624 of 12757 EPO with Charts & News - EPO EPO forecast revenye £3-3.5m for 30-6-12. SilkStag posted it would hit low-end £3m. SilkStag was right, EPO hit £3m. EPO forecast revenue about £7.5-14m for 30-6-13. Silkstag posted it will hit low-end £7.5m. These are all facts. If SilkStag is right again, about £7.5m in 30-6-13, then EPO share price will be substantially above current level. Predict x2-3 return. Opinion. If EPO decides to close funding in Oct/Nov, predict share price will rise post funding round. Opinion. EPO has made substantial commercial progerss so would have no difficulty securing further funding, if desired now or by Spring 2013 when it is needed. Opinion. ps BP, have you steam-cleaned your head yet? Dont forget to wash behind and inside your ears. We know what they have been pushed through and rubbing up against. Yuck. Dirty BP!

silkstag: Arf, you raise a savvy point. If a driver leaves keys in the ignition while popping into a shop, the insurer will refuse to payout for theft. If EPO breached agreed procedures then its insurers will refuse to payout (even if it is covered which is not clear as it may depend on proving who committed the alleged crime). EPO share price pumping around its 9 September 2015 porkies day fell back quite fast as once institutions stop supporting then vapour will not maintain fake gains. A lot of the buys will have been traders betting on the porkies pump, who of course will dump when it changes direction. There is no upside for investors in these vapour pumps, jut high risk trading. EPO missed its September 2014 fundraising forecast profit (and approx year end cash balances) for fy15 by -£9.2m and is on track to miss fy16 by -£25.6m. Total miss -£34.8m. It also missed funding forecasts in previous years by absurd amounts. And they failed to downgrade when they knew they were falling far short, in breach of AiM rules. Thus this management team has a proven track record of serial fraudulent misrepresentation and misleading the market on expectations, especially when fundraising. EPO will raise funds before signing the accounts in autumn, so any reader who says they can safely rely on management forecasts today is crooked or stupid or both. Like the previous investors who did rely in the past e.g. Sept 14, you will lose a high percentage of your cash. What is rough, is that high loss percentage is already dead the second you invest. The serial downgrades are certain as is the price crash that goes with them. EPO porkies pump day in March 2015 said they had already passed breakeven. Then came the downgrades and a -£9.2m fy15 loss. They are lying about breakeven now, as they have done before. Disaster funding rounds @4p, massive dilution and 1 for 7 share consolidation are on the way. Management and board changes overdue. Management death spiral. MAYBE LAST SELL OPPORTUNITY AT GROSSLY INFLATED SHARE PRICE. LARGE LOSS PERECENTAGE ALREADY HIDDEN IN SHARE PRICE SO INEVITABLE. all imho

silkstag: SS posted that the -£0.5m FY16 loss expectation was a sinking Earthtanic management lie. SS posted that the -£6.5m FY16 downgrade was still a management lie and that H1 FY16 would be -£5.5m alone; so full year loss -£10m or worse. SS posted in 2014, 15 and 16 that management serially breached AIM rules by failing to correct knowingly falsely inflated market expectations. SS posted that Earthtanic was a MANDATORY SELL at 45p or anywhere near and passengers should bail into lifeboats before it sinks back to 2010 10p turnaround price. SS posted expect FY16 loss at -£18m. SS posted expect PG to resign having been serially deceived by Earthtanic management. The truth: EPO downgraded FY15 from £0.5m profit to -£2.2m loss to -£4.2m loss to -£8.7m loss. EPO downgraded FY16 from -£0.5m loss to -£6.5m loss to -£11.5m loss to abandoned expectation on 21 March. EPO reported H1 FY16 loss before tax at -£5.6m and operating loss -£6.7m. In about six months EPO share price sank from 45p to 16.5p with heavy seller overhang remaining and still no FY16 forecast or target price issued by PG 2 weeks later. The honest conclusion: It seems that this SS 'oracle' keeps anticipating the truth. SS is filling the integrity void left by crooked Earthtanic management. SS has serially corrected for the benefit of this BB the falsely inflated market expectations set and left by crooked EPO management in breach of AIM rules. Only a crook or moron would be cross with SS for these gifts of analysis insight and integrity. DYOR especially if you are an ungrateful git or crook. All im(not very as have been bang on)ho.

cleverclog: SilkStag, 15 months ago (June 2014) you stated the following: You were wrong on all the 7 points, would you care to correct yourself and demonstrate you lack of credibility. Wrong 7 times, yet you sit here today, 15 months on and say the same stuff. Why were you so wrong 15 months ago??? 1-EPO 9 million revenue - You were wrong 2-Baydonhill Revenue You were wrong 3-slow growth in core turnover You were wrong 4-valuation IMHO the market has been duped intio thinking EPO is doubling turnover this and next year. But what is really happening is that the valuable core turnover is gowing much slower, and adding £3.4m worthless BH turnover is hiding that slow growth. You were wrong 5-The full year numbers will be dire. Given past bad behaviour in interims, EPO management will likely: 2a) boast that it has 'more than doubled turnover in a record breakthrough year' from £4.1m (30-6-13) to (Panmure) £5.6m + £3.4m = £9m. I expect a bit less, c£5.3m + £3.3m = £8.6m. You were wrong 6-I expect this price support to fail over the summmer, as sellers and insiders learning about the huge cash losses and dire numbers, put more sales pressure on the share price and it slides through the Henderson net. I also expect a bear market over the summer so some shorters may also attack EPO. I think EPO is worth about 18p.You were wrong 7-Management have harmed their credibility. You were wrong 10/6/2014 12:01 silkstag: 123 Prezzie, thank you. I was pondering filtering TM to ignore his often vulgar serial posting. Lets talk about matters that matter! 1) Actual and forecats turnover and cash loss: 6m to 31-12-12 £1.83m. Cash loss -£4.1m 6m to 30-06-13 £2.31m. Cash loss -£3.15m 6m to 31-12-13 £2.5m + 0.8m* BH = £3.3m reported. Cash loss -£3.5m * EPO included c£0.8m for 2 months of Baydonhill FX admin processing, which was valued at 1x turnover as low margin (0.48% commission), no growth and about breakeven, so commercially irrelevant. Panmure original forecast turnover for 12m to 30-6-14 was £6m EPO core + £3m for 7 months of BH = £9m. When EPO included an extra month of BH (revenue and cost under an accounting technicality), but reported core numbers below expectations in the interims, Panmure effectively downgraded their forecast to £5.6m EPO core + £3.4m BH = £9m. The total turnover stayed the same but that was only as it included an extra month of BH. Panmure did not increase their forecast loss by that £0.4m of extra BH costs - which imho was just a careless error. So the core business only grew 9% to £2.5m in the interims; and PG only expect £3.1m (up 25%) in the second half. 2) Slow growth negative impact on market, losses and valuation IMHO the market has been duped intio thinking EPO is doubling turnover this and next year. But what is really happening is that the valuable core turnover is gowing much slower, and adding £3.4m worthless BH turnover is hiding that slow growth. What is equally serious, is that slow growth in core turnover has only been achieved by hiring heaps of new sales people so overheads have gone up. They have gone up more tha the extra turnover in the core business. So EPO's cash-based loss (i.e. ignoring any non-cash accounting stunts and burdens) will be worse this year. EPO's cash-based loss has not got worse since y/e 30-6-12. So this y/e 30-6-14 will be a two-year backward step away from breakeven. With slow core growth and increasing losses taking EPO further from breakeven, its valuation must logically fall significantly. IMHO only by management failing to disclose the BH part of the numbers, and trunmpeting fake growth at fake levels, has caused the price to rise so far. The interim numbers were dire. The full year numbers will be dire. Given past bad behaviour in interims, EPO management will likely: 2a) boast that it has 'more than doubled turnover in a record breakthrough year' from £4.1m (30-6-13) to (Panmure) £5.6m + £3.4m = £9m. I expect a bit less, c£5.3m + £3.3m = £8.6m. But that is not the issue. The core business growing only 30% [4.1 to 5.3] is the problem. The market valuation requires core turnover to grown x3 then x3 (ie two years in a row) to make sense. 2b) gloss over and try to ignore that the cash-based loss has increased to c£7.5m, having been previously expected to fall to c£4m as EPO allegedly got closer to breakeven. 3) Funding and Henderson market support EPO will likely raise yet another £8m to fund its increasing losses. This will happen before the accounst can be signed so either this month or September seem likely. Meanwhile, Henderson sold several million shares in the 45-49p range and are buying them back at around 40p to try to provide share price support. Their average investment price on c40m shares is about 15p so this fiddling about at 40p is nothing to do with them liking the share at 40p, it is just about keeping the price up to help the funding round and support their position. I expect this price support to fail over the summmer, as sellers and insiders learning about the huge cash losses and dire numbers, put more sales pressure on the share price and it slides through the Henderson net. I also expect a bear market over the summer so some shorters may also attack EPO. I think EPO is worth about 18p, when you unravel the facts from management spin and deceit. I agree that EPO has future growth prospects and believe management would have better served the company by being honest, balanced and transparent - as was their legal duty - and allowed the share price to move more steadily and sensibly. Management have harmed their credibility. Given EPO's horror history, all manner of stock market deceit in 2009 with nearly all the responsible parties being sacked in 2010, Uberoi scored a vile own-goal in the interims, and will likely do the same in the full year commentary and numbers (unless the auditors do their job properly and take a firm stand). All imho and DYOR
