longwell: shares being bought and cancelled will slowly push up share price, continued diversification and cash generation will push share price up, eventual new acquisition will push share price up. pattern merging here.

schmally: Sheep_Herder - The last comment by the company was comforting and the share buyback has clearly been effective in restoring confidence and bolstering the share price. However, I'll feel far more comfortable once we have a really positive update later this week. Shorters do of course make bad calls and big losses occasionally, but it just seemed somewhat illogical to target PAYS when at face value it seems to have so much potential for a big price bounce and some long term upside momentum. Someone clearly did a good job of spooking investors because with the dodgy article, but I don't understand why did the shorters not capitalise to a greater extent when the share price plummeted? It just seems all very odd to me. Fingers crossed the update will quash any lingering concerns and then I'll be happy to watch the share price fly. Hedging my bets with a new amended stop loss of £3.70 just in case of a more downbeat update than expected.

metis20: 2bluelynn - as I see it PAYS have principally embarked on this buyback to raise the share price I suspect they would have preferred to keep the share buyback cash to pay down debt and assist acquisition rather than have to use it on a share buyback. Raising the eps is not IMO the main target but more a fortunate side effect of the share buyback. I suspect they would like to use as little cash as possible in their pursuit of raising the share price to a reasonable level. Study the RNS - "Paysafe Group plc (LSE: PAYS, the "Company") today announces that it intends to commence an inaugural share buyback programme of up to £100 million (the "Programme"). The management of Paysafe, together with the Company's Board, believe the current share price significantly undervalues the performance of the business to date and our future prospects. Paysafe has a proven track record of significant cash conversion, which has been used to rapidly reduce the Company's leverage since the announcement of the acquisition of Skrill and the associated debt fundraise in March 2015. The Company's robust balance sheet and cash generation now provide the opportunity to take advantage of prevailing market conditions to repurchase shares at highly economic levels and as a result provide immediate EPS enhancement. We are undertaking this Programme alongside our continuing pursuit of bold, strategic M&A opportunities. Management sees headroom for buybacks to remain attractive at levels well in excess of the current share price." PAYS will not want to depress the share price by playing down the coming TA. Quite the opposite IMO.

metis20: Tuesday 18th of this month - by 10am the share price had gone up to 380p. The Spotlight Research article reaction then kicked in. hTtp://www.investegate.co.uk/paysafe-group-plc--pays-/rns/response-to-share-price-movement/201612131354187410R/ PEP started shorting around 24th October when the share price was about 460p. For the rest of the recent shorting history see hTtp://shorttracker.co.uk/company/GB0034264548/all Were AEK, PEP, Sand Grove and OAM all aware, before they started shorting, that Spotlight Research was researching a deramping PAYS report?! Anyhow the response to the Spotlight report by PAYS and Barclays together with the share buyback (and reduction in shorts %} are now having the desired effect on the share price

eh9: Undoubtably there are paid users representing shorters on boards just as in all these situations. You need to do your own reseach and risk management (ie dont hold all your eggs in one company in case it does blow up) and then dont look at the boards, only look at press and RNS news. For what its worth these posts seem to be genuine analyst reseach: Paysafe’s share price fell by 18% yesterday, having been down 35% or so at one point. The sharesopened up by around 4% today. We fundamentally disagree with the research report that prompted the sharp share price fall. The report was issued on Seeking Alpha, which is a crowd sourced content service. As far as I’m aware, anyone can post research on this site, although I’m not entirely sure if contributors are vetted. The question is, who are Spotlight Research, the authors of the report? We haven’t come across them before but we do know that they had a ‘short’ interest in the stock. So, our take on the situation is that a shorter of a stock has issued a negative note making lots of speculative and inflated claims designed to get a negative share price reaction. We fundamentally disagree with their claims. In fact, the content of the report is highly misleading and is factually inaccurate, in our view. Interestingly, the note was issued at 10am yet the share price didn’t react until 11am after some odd sell orders below the market price cascaded the share price down. The main issues highlighted are the exposure to China via its payment gateway and the impact of anti-money laundering (AML) directives. None of this is new news. The company has been very open with the analyst community about its China exposure and has given analysts detail on the revenue exposure and profit margin of that part of the business. On our calculations, the overall profit impact if Paysafe was to withdraw from this business would be in the region of 16% to 18%, not in excess of 50% as the report claims. In China, online gambling is not regulated i.e. it’s a grey market. At any point, the Chinese authorities could move to ban online gambling. We recognise this and had factored this risk in to our investment thesis. As for the impact of AML 5 – the latest AML directive – we and the company welcome it. In fact, the company hosted a conference call on AML 5 some months ago with the analyst community specifically to address its implications. The company has been very transparent and open about this. As it is, it looks like the implementation of AML will be delayed into 2018. We do not agree that AML 5 poses a substantial risk to the business. In fact, we think that strengthening ‘know your customer’ (KYC) requirements will favour Paysafe, which we believe has very robust KYC processes. As for the aggressive accounting allegations, these are not substantiated in the report. We look at the cash flow of this business very closely. Cash generation is excellent, almost 100% conversion of profit into cash. This is not consistent with aggressive accounting practices. Following the Skrill acquisition in 2015, trailing net debt/EBITDA was around 3x. We expect the company to be almost debt free by the end of 2017. That’s an impressive achievement. I spoke too a couple of leading fund managers yesterday who hold this stock in their top 5 holdings within their UK Mid Cap funds to gauge their opinion and outlook following yesterdays news. summary below : 1) The view is that they are significantly overstating the profit contribution from Bet365 and China in particular. We believe it to be 13% of revenues and no more than 20% of profits. 2) The detail on the closure of 1-Pay and the use of an “outsourced service provider” is interesting but itself no material. We do not think this will cause either a liability from the operations in China or a potential impact of the view of the business in Europe or the US as a result of its operations in China. 3) We had always invested discounting the Chinese operations, they were useful in generating cash flow but could not be relied upon in the future. The business trades on 9.6x PE falling to 8.4x . The business will be debt free at the end of 2017, the FCF yield of the business is 12%. Even if we remove the Chinese business the company would trade on 11x or FCF yield of nearly 10%. The global peers trades on 20x PE or an EV/EBITDA of 11x versus an exChina PE of 11x or EV/EBITDA of 7x for Paysafe. 4) We are watching the news flow very closely and will be speaking with the management hopefully tm. We took the opportunity to add to our position significantly below the closing price, we have held the shares for the last 3 years and have done well by understanding the business and holding our nerve through volatility and adding to our position in periods of weakness - which we certainly consider this to be.

malcolmmm: (ShareCast News) - As shares in Paysafe and NCC Group took a hammering, directors in both FTSE 250 companies upped their skin in the game. On Monday, Paysafe's chief financial officer, Brian McArthur-Muscroft, exercised options over 516,844 ordinary shares at 0.01p each that were awarded to him under the company's long-term incentive plan. He sold 243,778 shares on the open market at 371.85p each, which was said to satisfy tax and national insurance obligations and the option cost of the exercise, and kept the remaining 273,066. At close on Monday these were worth roughly £1m, just before midday on Tuesday these shares were worth around a third less after traders began reading a blogged note by anonymous short seller Spotlight Research that highlighted what it saw as material risks from potential regulatory action. The short seller alleged that the Paysafe's largest customer, most likely to be Bet365 and which represents around 50% of its earnings, was operating a business that appears to facilitate and engage in illegal gambling in China. Paysafe pointed out that not only did Spotlight, which has disclosed a short position, stand to gain from a fall in Paysafe shares, but that all material information in the report "is either factually inaccurate or has been previously disclosed". It added that it "has a history of significant, transparent disclosure to the market, publishing two prospectuses in 2015 and being subject to substantial additional scrutiny through a full UKLA listing process as part of its move to the Main Market of the London Stock Exchange". By late afternoon on Tuesday, Paysafe's share price had crawled back up to 310p, yanking McArthur-Muscroft's holding back up above £820,000. Meanwhile, two directors of NCC Group, which was architect of its own share price fall as it issued a profit warning, showed their confidence in the cybersecurity company. Chief executive Rob Cotton bought 125,000 shares and chairman Paul Mitchell 50,000, both at a price of 191p, to spend a total of £0.33m.

ralphmalph: Eventhough this does not affect the PAYS share price directly, I have just heard the view that the current selling pressure in the markets are because sovereign wealth funds from oil countries are raising cash to pay for the deficits that have suddenly become very large. The view before was the oil price would recover short term'ish so meaning a little amount of cash needed to be raised. Now they view it will last for a couple of years so they need two years cash to be safe. Makes sense, but may be making there problems worse.

mickharkins1: lomax99 - for the PE ratio you should not look at EBITDA but profit after taxes. Irrespective, I agree that there is a strong case for PAYS share price to be rated considerably higher.
