scothernman: Large sell went through at around 4.20pm for 447k shares at 467.9p when the shares were trading at 479p. Not a great trading sign. Had bought back 1/3 of my previous holding this morning at 464p looking at PAYS share price holding resolutely when market was down 240 points. Broke my rule of waiting to buy till it touched 457p. Sold out at 480p just before close after the unexpected lucky rise in few hours. Hmmm....need to see short disclosure tommorow.

scothernman: Delighted to see the current run up of PAYS. I am revising the prediction of PAYS hitting 470p from April end to March end 2017 now. The rubber band holding the true value of PAYS share price has snapped and it is going to catapult now.$$$$$$$$$$$$... While at it let us congratulate the employees of PAYS for their stellar work so far and we need to be thankful for their efforts as we make more money as investors.

kuss1: alexytrader, Yes, exactly. When you are making significant amounts of cash either you buy another company, give back in dividends, buy your own shares or someone buys you. It's all down to how much cash you have. Which is why pays share price can only go up from here as it makes even more cash this year.... But many over-complicate what is simple ..

kuss1: China is the biggest market going forward first of all. Second you are making assumptions that the problem with Pays share price is all down to China, it isn't. Third you are focussing on on-line gambling but what about e-commerce. Forth an admission of wanting to withdraw from China would be an admission of irregularity, or at least that's how the market would interpret it. All just a lose, lose scenario. And also an immediate loss of revenue and profit... ta boot. Share price a generous £2 the next day imo...

eh9: Yup sheep herder I think your link hints at why pays share price can go into orbit and all the bits about to be plugged into an integrated offering

scothernman: On 13th Jan there was a single buy of 1.3 million and another 350K at close at 389p. There was no close of short position reported after that, which means someone went long or covered short position not reported to FCA as below the 0.5% threshold. If some funds went long they are in the same position as most on this board. On 19th Jan there was nearly 500K bought at close with large buys when the price was dropped before 3pm. Just micro-dissecting for the benefit of some dejected and impatient short term holders of PAYS. ~~~~~~~~~ Sometimes it is best to hold long term (or near term) view as it is difficult to micro-dissect and make sense of short term dramatic moves or selling by funds etc. We are small fish in the big ocean of sharks who make lot of money with short term play. PIs/ Pension funds make money long term. For example I have been in and out of Microfocus International (MCRO) [like so with PAYS]for over 2 years making good 50% profit with one account for short term trades. Around July 2015 Wizard a major stakeholder sold 20 mill shares of MCRO and then in feb 2016 another 20 million and again in May 2016 another 20 million when the share price was hitting peak with potential to rise. People talked about MCRO going down the tube due to aggressive off loading of position by a major holder........even though the fundamentals and earning potential was very strong and clear. Looking now it made short term downward impact on share price and selling from PIs at every announcement. Look at where the share price is for MCRO now. Fundamentals will get the share price right over time. Patience is needed or else why invest without looking at the fundamentals of a company ?

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.
