market master: 4 reasons why 'Sharepickers' chose this: KOOVS 1. Management Koovs has been given the tag, “Asos copycat”. This is not just because it’s business is online fashion or that the website looks uncannily like Asos’s but because it’s management are also ex-Asos. If you need a reminder, Asos to date, is the most successful AIM stock in history. If you’d invested £1000 when it first floated you could have made approximately £160,000, that’s a 15,900% return! LORD WAHEED ALI Lord Waheed Ali joined the Board in 2012, having been Chairman of ASOS plc between 2000 and 2012. He has extensive knowledge of international fashion, coupled with a keen eye for innovation. Lord Alli’s vision is to develop Koovs.com as the fashion retailer of choice in India. Lord Alli was appointed to the House of Lords in 1998 and is currently Chairman of Silvergate Media Limited, part of a group of media companies which specialises in children’s television, publishing and merchandising. Mary Turner, aged 57 – Chief Executive Officer MARY TURNER Mary was Chief Executive of AlertMe.com, a pioneer in the “internet of things” technology which powers the UK’s leading smart homes solution, Hive Active Heating, acquired by British Gas in May 2015. Previously she was Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Tiscali UK Limited from 2001 to 2009 and was a non-executive director of ASOS plc between 2009 and 2013. Robert Bready, aged 47 – Chief Creative Officer ROBERT BREADY Robert began his career at River Island, holding a variety of merchandising roles in womenswear and menswear. In 1997, he moved to the Arcadia Group, spending eight years working across young fashion retailers including Miss Selfridge and TopMan, eventually becoming Senior Executive for the Miss Selfridge brand. Robert was the Product Director of ASOS plc between 2006 and 2012. These are people who not only have excellent track records in online fashion but know the market they’re selling to. They also have ambition to make Koovs into India’s one-stop digital fashion website over the next 5 years. 2. Share Price KOOVS SHARE PRICE As I pointed out above the management have the ambition to make it the number one fashion website over the next 5 years. This takes a lot of investment and therefore fundraising. The management have outlined a plan to raise £35m over the next 3 years. This may put some investors off as it seems that this fundraising would be extremely dilutive to existing shareholders should they use equity placings to raise these funds. First and foremost, £5.6m of this has already been raised, through two tranches. The first tranche was through directors who subscribed to £1.1m million of shares at 37P. The second tranche of raising happened on 11th January by issuing 17,800,000 new ordinary shares at 25p to raise £4.5 million. The share price is currently at 15.875p, way below what these two fundraising were placed at. You may think that this share price can only go down again, what with further placing planned to happen. Maybe but they have just under 3 years to raise £29.4m or £9.8m per year. Even if they maintain their current level of sales (this is very conservative as they are achieving triple digit growth, see below) I would be very surprised if their revenue didn’t exceed £9.8m this year. 3. Sales and Stats This is the last trading update for the 14 weeks to 3rd January 2016: – 210% sales growth to INR295.6m (£2.96m). – Increased brand awareness from 1% to 8% (according to Campaign Watch from mConsult). – 98% increase in website visits and 75% increase in conversion rates year on year. – Weekly traffic exceeded one million visits per week for the first time; a 40% increase from the start of the marketing campaign. For the last three months of 2015 they achieved sales of £2.96m. This is pretty much double the sales they achieve in the 6 months up until September 2015 which were £2.8m and almost double the sales they achieved in the 12 months up until March 2015, which were £2.7m. So as I pointed out above, even if they maintain these sales figures, on a quarterly basis, they’ll achieve a revenue of £11.84m. Should they double their revenue every 3 months, as they have been doing, then they’d achieve over £40 million in revenue for this year. This company’s market cap is less than £4m. 4. The Market Population wise, India is the 2nd biggest in the world with 1.25 billion people. The Indian e-commerce market is undergoing exceptional growth. The lifestyle e-commerce market is estimated to increase by 5-times to £7.5bn by 2020, driven by the rise of the internet-connected middle class in key urban centres. Koovs’ strategy is to access this growth market and to build Koovs.com into India’s number one affordable western fashion destination by 2020 with a focus on growing market share to greater than 10pc. Their brand awareness in their last update, after their marketing campaign, went up from 1% to 8%. Asos does not have a presence in India but they’re always expanding. If and when they do decide to expand into India do you think they will try to compete with Koovs? Or just buy it and re-brand it? After all it’ll wouldn’t take a lot of design changes to the website. http://www.sharepickers.com/4-reasons-why-i-bought-koovs-koov/

harebridge: Brewsters- why are you saying that the stock has a lot of catching up to do to float levels?There has been dilution and the market cap has surpassed that from float. A basic lesson: Never judge a company by its share price, but by its market cap (share price x number of shares in issue).Koovs started life on 10th March 2014 with 24,110,719 shares in issue and a market cap of £36.2 million. (£1.50 a share).Today we have 132.48 million shares in issue (according to LSE) and a current market cap of £53.32 million at 40.25p a share.

brewsters_millions: Will Koovs plc and Boohoo.com plc ever match ASOS plc? ASOS (LON: ASC) has been of the AIM's best performers of all time. The stock has risen over 1,300% since early 2009 even after the 50% fall since February 2014. Koovs (LSE: KOOV) and Boohoo.com (LSE: BOO) are two smaller companies that have huge potential and could go on to challenge ASOS in the online fashion marketplace. Online retail sales are growing throughout the world and even in a 'mature' market such as the UK, online retail sales are up 10% year on year. Here are three pureplay online retailers that could be great growth companies to invest part of your portfolio in. Fashion giant The online fashion giant ASOS has been a fantastic success story for AIM in London. Like many other growth stocks, the company still trades on a high P/E of over 80 due to the good forward prospects of the company. Last month ASOS released interim results for the period to the end of February 2016. These results were very encouraging with profit before tax up 18% and group revenues up 21%. These results were followed by multiple broker recommendations with price targets of up to 4,800p. ASOS is focusing on its core markets such as the UK and it seems to be paying off as this year looks set to be good for ASOS too. Net profit is forecast to grow by £10m (27%) and if this target is hit, then expect shares to sharply rerate. Indian minnow Koovs is a very interesting play on the growing Indian fashion and e-commerce markets. The Executive Chairman and CEO were both on the ASOS board and the Chief Creative Officer was an ASOS Product Director. The business aim is to create the ASOS of India, selling western clothes to the youth population. In the most recent trading statement, the company said sales growth was 189% year-on-year and there are now over 1m registered users on the website. The company also recently completed a placing and raised £21.9m to fund business development and acquire the rest of the shares in Koovs India. Growing online play Boohoo is another online retailer set to impress. It sells own brand clothing in over 100 countries to customers between the ages of 16-24. Boohoo has performed well over the last few years and shares have doubled in just under a year. This shouldn't put investors off, the forward P/E is 'only' 34, which is acceptable for a growth stock such as Boohoo. Importantly Boohoo has launched apps in the UK, Australia and US, a good strategy as increasingly consumers want to use apps for shopping. Online retailers offer fantastic growth opportunities that may create huge returns for shareholders. ASOS is focusing on mature markets in an attempt to continue to grow profits, but for me, Koovs and Boohoo are the most interesting companies. Koovs has massive potential and if it can crack the Indian market then it could become a very big company. Boohoo is performing well and the share price should continue to rise over the next year. Growth stocks such as Koovs and Boohoo offer huge returns but always carry an increased level of risk and must be chosen carefully to avoid losses. https://uk.finance.yahoo.com/news/koovs-plc-boohoo-com-plc-095015740.html?utm_source=twitterfeed&;utm_medium=twitter

Well done to them, if the deal completes.Obviously this will dilute existing holders considerably, with the share count going up from 44.9m to 164.9m - existing holders will only own just over a quarter of the company post-fundraising.Also bear in mind that the company is heavily loss-making, so the intention is to burn up pretty much all of the new money, in trading losses from heavy marketing spend, and other overheads.Some of the money is also apparently being used to normalise the capital structure - i.e. buy out the large minority interest in the main trading subsidiary. This is very good - nobody likes unusual capital structures.Once this deal completes, then the company will be safer to invest in, for a couple of years anyway. If it maintains very high growth rates, then investors might start to get excited about it becoming the next Asos - remember that its key shareholder & Director is ex-Asos.Although it very much remains to be seen whether a viable business can be created from this heavily loss-making jam tomorrow company.- See more at: http://www.stockopedia.com/content/small-cap-value-report-13-apr-2016-spd-koov-pfd-wgb-127496/#.dpuf
