|From my maths, fair value is circa 110p/share - so with a 30% premium on top, a possible take-out price could be north of 140p|
|Do we really think sealed bids will be the way this goes?I would have thought a more open auction process would yield a better outcome.The announcement that they had been approached was, I suspect, more to do with the fact that a low-ball offer was being made. By making the announcement they were free to go out looking for better offers.The recent news that they were in advanced discussions with "interested parties" would indicate they have found one or more entities over and above the one that made the initial approach.I think the share price is fair value at present and doubt we will get much of a premium offered. If we can get close to £1.90 I will be overjoyed but I suspect a best offer will be below £1.|
|Today marks the three month anniversary of the unsolicited bid approach.Has this gone to sealed bids?|
|I think Panmure were at 196p sometime last year,so will be interesting to see how close to that this could get.GLA.|
|Takeover talks now approaching the third month.Can't be long now.Gla.|
|Bought a few yesterday. I have two confirmed pattern based price targets at 93 and 98|
|Who knows where this will end up - but from my calcs, NETD has an est Dec'16 net cash balance of $10.5m.
Therefore using an average software sector multiple of say 3x sales (ie 3x $26m) - this would deliver an EV of $78m (or mrk cap of $88.5m) - equivalent to 172 cents/share, or 137p assuming a sharecount of 51.5m and a forex rate of £:$=1.25.
IMO, 4x sales would drive the valuation to north of 175p.
Either way though, it looks that there might still be plenty of upside from here, in the event of an agreed bid from a trade buyer.|
|4 x revs still gives 157p which for a co showing 25% type cagr since 2012 is cheap.The recurring rev mix has gone up and presumably that is where a lot of the value lies.Any day nowGla|
|...Touchy. Bet your a delight to be around|
|How is Graham Neary's (albeit nearly a week old) statement that he 'doesn't know the company well' a Stockopedia tip?|
|Trading update - an intriguing announcement from this software company.Sales revenue for the period is expected to be above US$26M.In addition the Company is anticipating that adjusted EBITDA will be approximately US$2.0M. This compares favourably with the interim results, when the company reported $10.5m revenues, and a $0.8m adjusted EBITDA loss.Therefore, deducting one from the other, H2 must have been $15.5m revenue (up 48% on H1), and a significant move from loss into profit (at the EBITDA level anyway).Looking at the consensus forecast shown on Stockopedia, it looks as if this upturn was expected - with a forecast of $26.5m revenue.I've checked the cashflow statement, to see if the company is aggressively capitalising development spend (which would make EBITDA meaningless). It's not, which is good news - only $12k was capitalised last year.Balance sheet - is strong, with a large net cash balance of $11.2 when last reported at 30 Jun 2016. Although bear in mind that deferred revenue of $7.5m reflects amounts that customers have paid up-front for. Treat that how you wish, I'm just flagging it.Possible takeover bid? - this is intriguing;On 5 October 2016, the Board of Directors of NetDimensions ("the Board") also announced that it had received an approach which may or may not lead to an offer being made for the entire issued share capital of the Company.The Board is in advanced discussions with interested parties and further announcements will be made in due course.That seems a fairly direct steer that a takeover bid could happen.My opinion- I don't know this company at all well, but I think this announcement looks interesting|
|Tipped on stockopedia on 23 Dec in small caps section|
|Doubling revenues? Last year's revenues were $25.4mm so $26mm looks like a 2% increase, not 100%.|
|I should qualify my statement with "a technology company."It does.all seem to bode well for very significant upside from these levesls,as multiple parties are still involved.Happy Christmas and a peceful new year to all.|
|Agreed J777J - nice also to hear you're in a bit happier mood today|
|A co doubling revs should easily sell for 4 x revs = 157p.|
|Managed to smoke out the above.Excellent news,honestly can't see this going for under 100p and hopefully 150p plus.|
|Trading Update for the 12 months to 31 December 2016
NetDimensions (AIM: NETD; OTCQX: NETDY), a global provider of performance, knowledge and learning management systems, is pleased to provide a trading update for the 12 months to 31 December 2016 (the "period").
Sales revenue for the period is expected to be above US$26M. In addition the Company is anticipating that adjusted EBITDA will be approximately US$2.0M.
On 5 October 2016, the Board of Directors of NetDimensions ("the Board") also announced that it had received an approach which may or may not lead to an offer being made for the entire issued share capital of the Company. The Board is in advanced discussions with interested parties and further announcements will be made in due course.
Jay Shaw, Chief Executive Officer of NetDimensions, said: "In 2013 we stated that we would invest heavily to grow revenues whilst operating at a loss in order to build up a substantially larger business capable of generating a sustainable profit. It is therefore pleasing to have nearly doubled revenues since 2012 and to be able to report a substantial adjusted EBITDA profit in 2016."|
|Nothing for christmas from the clowns running this show.|
|Well if there is one, then it could get very interesting. I've had that with LVD recently. Still going on.|
|.. as announced five weeks ago, hence the need for patience on our part.|
|Possibly a bidding war is the reason for no news we will just have to wait and see.My hunch is a US player.|
|They either need to declare their intentions or get on with running the business uninterrupted.Shares should be trading north of 150p|
|No rush. Shares look good value regardless of takeover discussions.|
