cheekyfella: explorer, I know about Audley. If I were being cynical, I might suggest that the share price has been walked down so that the 'premium to the share price' refered to below is significantly less (ie where we are now) than it was at the time of this info breaking (Nov 2007 when the share price was hovering at 20p) Audley - the hedge fund run by Julian Treger, best known for his role a few years ago in UK Active Value, the shareholder action group - has built a 25 per cent stake in the company this year. It reckons the company has been undervalued by Aim and will attract a much higher rating on Nasdaq. Audley proposes to take the company from Aim via a cash offer at a premium to the share price. It claims investors have shown little interest in the company in spite of a strong operational performance. In addition the company has strong links with US companies such as Motorola.

explorer88: explorer88 post 577 7th Dec: fwiw, i think we may see Audley continuing to buy up to around 18-20p, adding a few more %, followed by an offer for the company at between 25p-30p. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------- explorer88 post 578 7th Dec: JT - news is leaking out - better be quick in your buying, otherwise someone else will snap up the shares ;-) --------------------------------------------------------------------------------- EBT Mobile China poised to join Nasdaq By David Blackwell Financial Times Published: December 21 2007 02:00 | Last updated: December 21 2007 02:00 EBT Mobile China, the retailer of mobile phones and services, appears poised to be the first company to leave Aim and join Nasdaq in the US. Audley - the hedge fund run by Julian Treger, best known for his role a few years ago in UK Active Value, the shareholder action group - has built a 25 per cent stake in the company this year. It reckons the company has been undervalued by Aim and will attract a much higher rating on Nasdaq. EBT, which is trying to emulate Carphone Warehouse in the Chinese market, reversed onto Aim in August 2005, raising £4m through a placing at 17p. Since then it has consistently increased revenues and the number of retail outlets it operates in the affluent eastern areas of China. In May last year it raised another £5m at 30p a share. But when it returned for further funds early this year, the placing to raise £7.4m was priced at 22p a share. The shares closed yesterday unchanged at 13¾p, giving the company a market value of £30m. Audley proposes to take the company from Aim via a cash offer at a premium to the share price. It claims investors have shown little interest in the company in spite of a strong operational performance. In addition the company has strong links with US companies such as Motorola. EBT was expected to move into profit this year but in August it warned of delays in its store opening programme and of falling prices because of a lack of new handsets, which knocked the share price. Nevertheless, it reported a 65 per cent inc-rease in the total number of stores in the first half to 238, and a 41 per cent rise in revenues to Rmb317m (£20.8m).

silverthread: Some months ago, I and another on this thread checked through the holdings of investment houses. We found that they and the management of the company held betweem 90 and 95% of the shares in issue. As far as I can see, there has been no reduction in the fund holdings (in fact Audley has been increasing its holding up to August). So there are very few shares traded, and the drift in the share price has occurred because there has been no meaningful improvement in profits. In fact there was a minor profit warning back in early summer. As I view things, the company has been focussed on building its footprint of retail outlets in China, which it has done very successfully. I am just waiting for the volume of sales (and new products) to expand through these outlets and generate the profit that I think a company operating in a high growth market, with low product penetration, ought to be able to sustain. I guess the investment houses also hold to the same view. All IMHO.

divinausa1: tyranosaurus - 3 Aug'07 - 08:39 - 148 of 149 It makes you wonder whether Audley know what they are doing. These may be cheap based on a long term view, but short term there is nothing on the horizon to support the share price. ----------------------------------- Long term views support share prices thats how markets work. Yuo have to remember people do invest for long term as well. They have grown number of stores from 190 to 238 1st half 2007. I feel that is excellent progress. The market knew of a shortfall due to new model handsets unavailability already prior to this update. MMs will always mark it down on even a 2 year view i think at these levels they are a great buy. IMO

igoe104: I see this being a 10 bagger over a five year period. there is going to be over 1 billion chinese mobile users over the next few years. ebt are getting them-self in a good position to benefit from this sudden growth. this is worth a read. Economic growth in China should lead to increasing affordability of mobile services, strong price elasticity and stable Arpu," said Wang, referring to average revenue per user (Arpu), a key industry measure. "In our view, the share price should capture not only upside in disposable income levels, but also a structural change in household expenditure towards telecoms." http://www.livemint.com/2007/05/16151355/Rural-telephony-growth-makes-I.html

The current weakness in the company's share price offers an attractive investment opportunity, Panmure Gordon says.

sheeneqa: For immediate release April 17, 2007 EBT MOBILE CHINA PLC ("EBT Mobile" or the "Company") NEW OPTION SCHEME and SPECIAL OPTION GRANT EBT Mobile, a leading China-based retail chain selling mobile phones and related products and services, announces that it has established a new share option scheme (the EBT Mobile China plc Share Option Scheme) with a pool of up to four million of the Company's ordinary shares. The Board of Directors has responsibility for supervising the scheme and the grant of options under its terms. Under the scheme, the options vest in 3 equal tranches, on 1 March 2008, 1 March 2009 and 1 March 2010 and are performance based, requiring the Company's share price to increase over pre-set targets with the first target being #0.36. The option allows for a share price increase hurdle which is missed on an annual vesting date to be satisfied at a later date. The exercise price of each ordinary share under the option is its nominal value of #0.001. In addition to the EBT Mobile China plc Share Option Scheme, the Company has today made a special grant of an option over 1 million shares to Stephen Davidson, a non-executive director of the Company. The option vests in 3 equal tranches annually over a period of 3 years commencing on the date Mr. Davidson joined the Company's Board and is performance based, requiring the Company's share price to increase over pre-set targets based upon the Company's share price when Mr. Davidson joined the Board, with the first target being #0.30. The option allows for a share price increase hurdle which is missed on an annual vesting date to be satisfied at a later date. The exercise price of each ordinary share under option is its nominal value of #0.001. Did not take them long to get their noses in the trough!

britishbear: Now we know why the share price went up last week - insider buying ahead of news. As investors we should note any similar moves and act accordingly. Excellent news though - the size of EBT means that it will generate good economies of scale and thus good margins. The take out price of EBT will be at a large premium as such a well located portfolio of stores will be very hard to match. At the rate China is growing and the key contacts it already has this is looking like an really exclelent long term investment. Hmmm. Time to top up I wonder.

ursamajorra: RNS Number:9600Q Trading Exchange (The) PLC 07 September 2005 For immediate release 7 September 2005 Trading Exchange PLC ("Trading Exchange PLC") Result of EGM The Board of Trading Exchange PLC is pleased to confirm that the resolutions proposed for consideration at the Extraordinary General Meeting of the Company, which was held today in London, to approve, inter alia, the reverse takeover of the Company by EBT Mobile Limited (the "Acquisition") and the placing of new ordinary shares to raise #4.0 million (the "Placing") were approved. The Acquisition and the Placing remain conditional on, among other things, Admission, which is expected to occur at 8.00am tomorrow, 8 September 2005. Upon Admission the Company will change its name to EBT Mobile China plc, and trade under the ticker "EBT". Based on the share price of the Company at the close of play on the 6 September 2005, being the latest practicable date prior to the release of this announcement, EBT Mobile China plc will be valued at approximately #45.0 million. Jim Reiman, Chairman and CEO of EBT, said: "Joining AIM is an important milestone in our progress. EBT is at a relatively early stage in its development but it is already an established mobile phone retailer in East China with over seventy outlets and excellent relationships with other retailers, handset manufacturers and service providers. "Access to additional capital will enable us to accelerate the growth of our retail network which is a key objective and I believe that the Group represents a unique opportunity to capitalise on its position in growth sector within a vast and expanding market. "We think that EBT is well positioned to create a true national brand within our sector and, ultimately, become China's leading national mobile retailer." For Further Information Contact: Jim Reiman, Chairman and CEO EBT 0798 1690 990 Martyn Konig, Executive Director The Trading Exchange PLC 0700 4956 956 Henry Turcan/ Tom Price / Bobbie Hilliam Evolution Securities Limited 0207 071 4300 Terry Garrett/ John Moriarty/Stephanie Badjonat Weber Shandwick Square Mile 0207 067 0700 Background on EBT EBT Mobile The Business EBT Mobile is a Chinese based retailer of mobile telephone products and services, including mobile phones, SIM cards, cell phone accessories, and cell phone related value-added services. EBT Mobile's brand has been in the Chinese market since 1996 in Shanghai and since that time has expanded, as of 1 July 2005, into additional cities near Shanghai (Suzhou, Kunshan, Hangzhou, Jiangyin, Wuxi, Zhangjiagang, Xuzhou and Changshu). EBT Mobile operates in China with the slogan "EveryBody Talk" targeted at the service driven customer. Many of EBT Mobile's retail outlets are located as "outlets within stores" in department stores and "big box" hypermarkets including Carrefour, one of the leading hypermarket chains in PRC with approximately 60 hypermarkets in China, and Lotus. EBT Mobile has relationships with China Mobile and China Unicom's local branches (currently China's only mobile cellular network service providers) and operates co-branded outlets and service centres with both companies. EBT Mobile also has long standing relationships with many of the leading PRC and foreign cellular handset manufacturers which include direct purchasing rights with Nokia and Haier. EBT Mobile's main product line is mobile handsets which accounted for approximately 85 per cent. of revenues in 2004 followed by SIM cards which accounted for approximately 14 per cent. in the same period. In 2004, EBT Mobile sold approximately 173,000 handsets. EBT Retail Outlets As at 1 July 2005, EBT Mobile's retail network consisted of 49 outlets in Shanghai, 15 outlets in Suzhou, 3 outlets in Hangzhou, plus single outlets in Kunshan, Jiangyin, Wuxi, Zhangjiagang, Xuzhou and Changshu. EBT Mobile has targeted organic outlet growth to increase the number of outlets within the network to over 90 by the end of the current financial year. As at 1 July 2005, of EBT Mobile's 73 retail outlets, 5 were co-located with one of the two major cellular network operators (either China Mobile in Shanghai, or China Unicom in Suzhou) and 57 outlets were located inside major department stores, including Carrefour and Lotus where the sale is made in conjunction with the store operator. The Proposed Directors target the retail store profile so as to attract the higher income sector on the basis of good quality and service rather than just price. EBT Operations EBT Shanghai is EBT Mobile's Shanghai retail operations company. EBT Suzhou is EBT Mobile's retail operations company for the Jiangsu and Zhejianq Provinces. iAtoZ Beijing operates EBT Mobile's website and is the company through which all electronic sales of goods and services will be conducted. EBT Trade conducts EBT Mobile's non-retail operations business, including the purchase of handsets and other merchandise from manufacturers. EBT Trade then distributes products to the EBT Mobile retail operating companies. It also houses centralised functions including finance, training and human resources. Market Opportunity of the Enlarged Group As at the end of June 2005, China had approximately 363.2 million mobile phone subscribers, accounting for approximately 28 per cent. of the Chinese population at that time (Source: MII). Sales of mobile phones in China totalled approximately Yuan 68.9 billion for the first six months of 2005 (Source: CCID Consulting). With an estimated population of approximately 1.3 billion people, China is one of the largest mobile telephone markets in the world, though its penetration rates are half those found in the UK and USA. The Proposed Directors believe Chinese mobile user penetration will reach the rates to be found in developed countries of approximately 70 per cent. This implies a long-term active mobile subscriber population in China of approximately 900 million people and implies approximately an additional 535 million new users to the reported subscriber base of 30 June 2005. Owing to China's currently cash-based economy (credit and electronic payment mechanism are not widely used) the majority of Chinese mobile users work on a "pre-pay" mobile credit system rather than on a contractual basis. The Proposed Directors believe therefore that the growth of mobile subscribers, together with the introduction of new mobile technologies and development of mobile data communications, will require a network of physical retail establishments where such goods and services can be provided and paid for, and to support the network operators' efforts to convert pre-pay customers to term contract customers. Key Strengths of the Enlarged Group The Enlarged Group Board believes the following to be the Enlarged Group's key strengths: * an established reputation and brand as a mobile telephone retailer in the Shanghai and Suzhou markets; * relationships with key mobile industry companies, such as China Mobile (Shanghai Branch), China Unicom (Suzhou Branch), Nokia and other handset manufacturers; * relationships with a number of Chinese retail chains, including Carrefour, Lotus, NEXT Mart and RT Mart enabling the Enlarged Group to pursue an aggressive expansion strategy. The Enlarged Group Board believe that these key strengths will allow the Enlarged Group to pursue its growth strategy, capitalise on current market trends and consolidate and increase its market share, revenues and profits within the Chinese mobile market. Business Strategy of the Enlarged Group The strategy of the Enlarged Group will be to entrench the position of EBT Mobile in its current markets and, primarily through organic growth, expand nationally throughout China and, ultimately, become China's leading national mobile retail network. The Enlarged Group will initially focus its expansion within the Yangzte River basin and, in due course, cities in other regions. As this expansion occurs, the Proposed Directors expect to increase profit margins as sales volumes increase through additional outlet openings, which should allow the Enlarged Group to negotiate improved terms from suppliers. Additionally, the Enlarged Group plans to introduce higher-margin value-added products and services, and provide a retail platform to support the sale and service of a full range of mobile content offerings including games, music, ring-tones and other services and intangible products. Through its network, the Enlarged Group plans to be able to provide customer interface and money collection facilities for sellers of such value-added services. The Enlarged Group plans to continue to invest in its brand through staff training, outlet refurbishment, event sponsorship and other advertising with the intention of targeting the quality and service driven customer. Controlling Shareholders On Admission certain shareholders of the Enlarged Group whom the Panel on Takeovers and Mergers deems to be acting in concert (the "Concert Party") will own approximately 87,276,224 Ordinary Shares (representing approximately 56.03 per cent. of the Enlarged Issued Ordinary Share Capital). Further to this, the Concert Party will through the exercise of options in the Company be able to acquire up to an additional 14,479,082 Ordinary Shares. These additional Ordinary Shares under option when added to the post-Admission holdings of the Concert Party would amount to 101,755,306 Ordinary Shares, representing 58.08 per cent. of the Ordinary Share capital as enlarged as a result of the full exercise of the options by the Concert Party only.
