lignum: Bearfoot - I'm sure that Harwood (28% shareholding led by Chris Mills) and Ruffer (10%) are thinking hard about how to maximise their investment value. Vicon is probably at the stage when it should be divested but that would leave all the overhead to be absorbed by Yotta and the remaining OMG (overhead + Yotta) would probably tank. They need to get growth into Yotta to sell it at a premium and assuming Vicon maintains its position they are then in a position to sell two growth businesses and discard the central costs. That's the theory anyway. Any good news on Yotta (especially from Germany) should have a big impact on the share price. The piece that I don't understand is how Yotta fits in with the billions being spent by Google, Amazon etc on road mapping ahead of the introduction of driverless cars. Clearly OMG can't compete with this investment and Yotta's focus is slightly different (street furniture as well as road condition etc). But eventually the big boys data will also address this; however by that time Yotta should have the relationships and a sticky revenue stream in place. Hopefully.
bearfoot: Hi Billy - the effect of paying of a special dividend is simply to reduce the asset value of the company (and therefore logically the share price) by that amount. In over-simple terms: if there's a 5p special dividend then it the share price will fall 5p. Indeed, this is exactly what happens when a share goes ex-div. A hypothetical example: if the OMG price before the dividend was, say 50p, then after the dividend it would be 45p (all other things being equal). In effect you have 'taken' 10% of your investment out of OMG. This is then taxed as income so if, unlike me, you are into paying higher levels of tax, you will be taxed at up to 45% on your 'sale' of this part of your holding. Ugh! Indeed, assuming you've got unused CGT exemption, then you can sell some of your holding at any time and with no tax cost. Personally, I'd rather the money was invested in growing the existing businesses. They have/had £8m of cash. I'd like to see them making that resource work to accelerate growth for the existing businesss... rather than being beinignly returned.... All the best
lignum: Bearfoot - good post - it would be very interesting to see the share price chart adjusted for all the special dividends from sales of the business. This has been a great share for me over the last few years and if they can get some traction overseas on Yotta I expect more of the same. I also feel that the value of the two remaining businesses could be greater than the sum of the parts.
bearfoot: Lignum, as a long term holder/accumulator I fully agree with you. The OMG 12-month share price chart masks the real return (including the substantial 'special' dividends) over the past 12 months. To my mind, it deos not recognise the unrestricted upside, and underpinned downside. If you remove the substantial investment/loss in OMG Life, and the huge cash pile, you're left with two very solid businesses both with scalable and proven IP (which could/should be very attractive to a global entitiy). I've always been hugely sceptical about the Autographer investment as it is a solution looking for a problem. Indeed, I had been mentally writing Autographer off and hoping management would focus on gearing the profitable entities. However, IF (and it's a big IF) there is some re-usable IP in with Autographer that has a real value, and they can licence that to gloabl player to drive material royalties (as they seem to imply) THEN that would be EXTREMELY exciting, and would lead to a substantial re-rating of this backwater share. Goodness, the various IP within the group must be worth a fortune in the right hands, as evidenced by the Boeing deal earlier this year. As an aside, I hold the stock both in nominee and certificated form and so receive the annual report which (annoyingly to me) is a huge and exepensively produced rather self-congratulatory glossy tome to rival the largest businesses in the world! I hope that this is not indicative of poor cost-control throughout the group or any complacency within the Board or management! Indeed, sometimes I have to remind myself that OMG is Oxford Metrics Group and not Oxford Media Group! Just visit the website to get a taste of this:
bakunin: They're either quoted on more than one exchange or some brokers might run a dark pool for them, eg Barclays. My broker seemingly couldn't get a quote yesterday. To sell, that is. The share price will drop by 5p on the 18th and when the 4.5p div was paid, the shares dropped much more than 4.5 The chart has a bit of a peaky feel to it, so chartists who don't bother with any fundamentals at all might chase the 5p drop. It is quite a liquid stock with average volume of 300,000 Alternatively, chartists might see an uptrend/flag formation and carry on buying the dips. Overall market conditions seem a bit wobbly at the moment with the Greek issue.
gimeabreak: There is so much happening in the markets at the moment yet this dog just lies around doing nothing, I hate this company having been invested for so long, talks the talk,builds you up knocks you down, takes all gives so little in return, you aint going to make your fortune here, I'm still brassed off having a loss of £3000 when I sold last May @ 30p and the share price still remains in a coma, that silly camera ,''one reason why I sold''appears to have made little impact, not seen, heard anything positive in the media, daft idea
lignum: £8m raised via underwritten placing at 29p including £0.2m from directors. £6m used for an earning enhancing acquisition. £1m additional cash to be raised if share price holds above 29p. Excess cash to be used for Autographer opportunity - I don't know how real this opportunity is but directors seem to be willing to back it with their own cash at 29p. Price drops to 28p. What's going on? I'd have thought the underwriters would have picked up any shenanigans eg by using the acquisition as a smokescreen to cover underlying problems. Someone isn't happy - why?
radon: OMG is pleased to announce a share issue to raise up to approximately £9.0 million (before expenses) through the issue of up to 27,586,208 New Ordinary Shares by way of a Placing at 29 pence per Ordinary Share to certain institutional investors and Directors through N+1 Singer and up to a further 3,473,616 New Ordinary Shares to be issued through an Open Offer at 29 pence per New Ordinary Share. The Directors of the business will subscribe £205,000 to the Placing. Share price down to 27.4. The institutional investors could pick up some shares for less than 29p at present! I guess retail investors aren't too pleased? If OMG can get the share issue off safely I suppose that would suggest decent institutional support and hence be a _good_ thing...
valustar1: bbonsall I think you are getting carried away 3m people in the UK are not going to buy it at £399 a go Plus if they had already sold 10k units and generated £4m in sales they would be obliged to report as being material to the share price But lets hope its a success
interceptor2: Haven't seen the revised estimate yet, but below is what Singer had to say about the latest trading update. ic2... "House broker N+1 Singer, commented: "We believe the less developed businesses are hitting key operating milestones which in turn should lead to financial milestones. A sensible sum of the parts valuation approach which assumes zero value for Life (where the Autographer product resides) yields a 43-61p fair value, which is significantly above the current 25p share price. "Evidence that the divisions are executing well against their growth opportunities should lead to upside against our current forecasts, and perhaps of greater impact, a re-rating of the shares."
