I wonder if we will see a gradual slide until a new piece of news or brokers note?|
|An instructive & highly relevant guide to valuation of inventive, early-stage (often pre-revenue) technology companies, especially in the area of software is:
The going rate appears to be between $0.8-2.0m per employee|
The dawn of a new era perhaps, does anyone know the new epic yet?|

|Yes Nick and that is why many growth companies disappoint when they reach profitability, investors price too much in too early. If you take OIP's market cap as about £14m. Don't deduct the cash as that will be spent over the next couple of years, if you give it a p/e of 60 to reflect a high growth rate it has to be making around £250,000 a year to justify the present market cap. mmmmh, I think I will keep what I have got but not chase it. It is up to others what they do.
I sold out of SEO at 16p about a year ago I think when I began to have doubts about the take-up of greenseal. I had to wait quite awhile before my doubts were confirmwed but they were eventually.
I am however going to look at SEO again. Are they likely to blow all the cash just raised with no results or could it be different this time?
Thanks for the additional info on the AGM. I have copied your first account to keep for reference. I have a good feeling about Vialogy but I think before I get too excited we need to see how successful the likes of Cisco are in selling the stuff. We are on the cusp of revenues but we are not there yet. We should have a better idea in a year's time how things are going to pan out.
I sometimes think it is better not to focus too much on the detail of the technology but instead evaluate what the revenues and earnings are likely to be and we just can't say at the moment with Vialogy. Thus it is a big gamble.|
|Good insights there from Roadking and others who attended the AGM.
A couple of other snippets that I missed from the first summary:-
Sandeep Gulati was asked whether microarrays still had a part to play in the business. The response was that this was "non-material." Th work on microarrays had been very useful in terms of developing the technology and transferring it to other 'real-time' applications. The FDA were involved in a project regarding microarrays and it could come back. The implication was that this is extremely low priority for now and the resources are being focused on areas with more significant and immediate revenue returns.
Jim Slater stated there were "many other deals in negotiation" and that ViaLogy was in "discussions with the U.S. equivalent of the UK Minister for Defence."
Either JS or a director (notes don't specify who) added that in addition to existing contracts ViaLogy were in "active negotiations" with a number of other companies.
Terry Bond confirmed that the UK/U.S. split in terms of share holding was 70% UK and 30% U.S. he also mentioned the difficulty Americans have in buying shares on AIM. So, regardless of PR in the States that will remain an obstacle.
I am sure some U.S. brokers can provide this service so it would be useful for Financial Dynamics and the new ViaLogy website to give details. It's unrealistic and costly to think ViaLogy can offer ADR's at this stage but it's something to consider in the future.
In response to some searching questions on the share price Terry Bond readily conceded that the share price "does not reflect the current situation."
There would be city presentations at an "appropriate time" - perhaps end of the year. "Appropriate time" was defined as coinciding with large contracts.|
|Greenpastures - fair comment and that's the danger of making a profit! Fair number of non-profitable companies with well over 50m m/cap valuations. Who can forget non-profitable SEO at an absurd 250m valuation and that's in recent times as well.|
|Talking about feet on the ground if you give a high growth company a p/e of 30 to justify a market cap of of £30 million it has to be making a £ million a year in profits. If its a p/e of 60 you need half million etc. I find thinking in those terms helps to stop me getting carried away.|
