|ashtree2: This has been my worst share over last 4 years.They are now making a profit and the share price starts to recover only to announce this.I thought that they said they would not delist last year but cant find the rns? All is never as it seems with this one.STILL RECON SOMEONE WANTS YOUR SHARES|
|littleredrooster: Is this the same Prime Focus here that is valued at 2.8 mil ?
In your opinion would that make PFO itself a buy ?
The figure of £2.8m may not be the most relevant number when considering whether PFO shares presently represent good value. The company appears to have net debt which is several times its market cap. So one should probably be looking at the enterprise value which would still be significant even if the share price fell to zero!
Interestingly, PFO's final results for the year ended 31 March 2011 mentioned CLEAR. Any revenues being generated from CLEAR will likely still be very modest but we know that CLEAR's global revenues are expected to grow rapidly (see post 338). Perhaps CLEAR will provide PFO with some competitive advantage in the future.
Enterprise Value - EV
"A measure of a company's value, often used as an alternative to straightforward market capitalization. Enterprise value is calculated as market cap plus debt, minority interest and preferred shares, minus total cash and cash equivalents."
"Think of enterprise value as the theoretical takeover price. In the event of a buyout, an acquirer would have to take on the company's debt, but would pocket its cash. EV differs significantly from simple market capitalization in several ways, and many consider it to be a more accurate representation of a firm's value. The value of a firm's debt, for example, would need to be paid by the buyer when taking over a company, thus EV provides a much more accurate takeover valuation because it includes debt in its value calculation."

|littleredrooster: I don't know how to value Prime Focus London shares but we know what Prime Focus Limited is prepared to pay. A premium of about 50% to the quoted share price seems reasonable to me. I don't see how Prime Focus Limited could offer less than 35p per share in the near future without being accused of giving preferential treatment to a Prime Focus London director.|
|tara7: Transformers 3 set to pass $500M this weekend.
Stock on the move up as investors see the PFO share price in London is way out of line with India.|
|tara7: The above is from Prime Focus India, however it is PFO London that would have made the big money,[as yet not reflected in the share price.]

Prime Focus London PLC ORD 5P (PFO)
Shares in Prime Focus London plc were restored to AIM trading after the company published its results for the six months to September 30. Prime Focus, which provides technology-based creative services for the media and entertainment industry, reported a first-half pre-tax profit of £2.67m, up from £7k, on turnover rising to £18.5m from £8.2m. Earnings per share rose to 8.19p from 0.09p in H1 2009. Net debt fell to £2.74m from £4.38m. The company said the year had started positively with new business wins. It launched its digital production arm during the period and was currently servicing clients such as Visa, Burberry and Volkswagen. It had seen additional success in the 3D conversion space, having established its capabilities through involvement in 'Clash of the Titans' alongside Prime Focus North America, part of the larger group within parent company Prime Focus India. The company participated in the 3D conversion business by contributing creative services for several movies and completed two commercials for Gucci and Puma from 2D to 3D stereoscopic. Chairman and MD Namit Malhotra said, 'In just over a year since our launch as a single global brand under the Prime Focus name in October 2009, we are already being talked about as one of the world's leading players in the industry.' At 9:03am: (LON:PFO) share price was +11p at 27.5p Story provided by StockMarketWire.com|
|tara7: Note 32 in the last full year accounts should put any fears to rest.
Company has just had £9M of cash handed to it, that means debt is just about Zero with real assets = to todays share price.
Earnings for the half year [Tax Free] on a pe of just 10 should = a share price of 80p then double that for the full year just ended = £1.60p[with no growth].!!
However growth like this should see a pe of 14 in my view, or over two pounds a share.
At 26p this stock is as good as it gets for investors like me looking for low risk 10 baggers.
Please do your own research, and take note of the no of jobs they have on offer.!!|
