hedgehog 100: BST issued its 2016 final results today, and its share price slipped back to 24.75p on profit-taking. This looks like a good buy opportunity, considering the explosive growth rate that today's RNS revealed. Let's consider the explosive nature of the 2017 growth here, which is better than I had been expecting, but which people seem to have been missing - 28/06/2017 07:01 UKREG Big Sofa Technologies Group PLC Final Results "... Revenues grew to GBP757,000 in 2016, with average monthly revenue approximately double that in 2015 ... Strong start to 2017, with revenues in June more than three times greater than January ... We have made significant operational and financial progress in the first half of the year, growing a substantial new business pipeline from just c.GBP100,000 at the outset of the year to over GBP1.35 million today ... of the proposals decided upon so far this year, Big Sofa has converted 54% by value ..." https://uk.advfn.com/stock-market/london/big-sofa-tech-BST/share-news/Big-Sofa-Technologies-Group-PLC-Final-Results/75126028 I.e. Revenues up over 200% in five months, an annualised increase of over 1,000%! And order book pipeline up about thirteen-fold in five months, an annualised increase of over 20,000%!! In 2016, turnover was about seven times the year end order book pipeline. If a similar ratio applies this year, we should therefore expect multi-million pound turnover in 2017. The order book clearly has a quite rapid turnover, as you would expect with this type of business, but which some people may not appreciate and which is therefore fooling them. Moreover, the conversion rate of over 50% is stunning: not only is it a very strong validation of BST's offering, but also bodes very well for further strong revenue growth. Now let's consider the operating loss and cash position: 28/06/2017 07:01 UKREG Big Sofa Technologies Group PLC Final Results " ...Operating expenses include GBP785,000 of AIM listing costs and GBP705,000 of deemed reverse acquisition costs, both of which are non-recurring. ... The balance sheet at the end of 2016 remained strong with cash of GBP2.5 million ... Operating loss (4,297) ..." https://uk.advfn.com/stock-market/london/big-sofa-tech-BST/share-news/Big-Sofa-Technologies-Group-PLC-Final-Results/75126028 I.e. the 2016 operating loss excluding non-recurring costs was £2.8M., only slightly higher than the year end cash position. The speed with which revenues are growing means that there may well not be an urgent need to raise more equity funds before the company is at or near profitability, especially as it could prefer debt if necessary. But of course it may choose to do undertake a placing, e.g. if it dual-lists in America as is the claimed intention. And if it does, the sort of explosive growth being achieved should mean that funds should be available at a very healthy share price.

hedgehog 100: Hi Maytrees, and thanks for flagging up LVRT (Levrett). To address your question, a RTO suspension is usually a very positive event if the RTO goes through, as it generally adds significant value. A recent example is VLOX (outlined in the post above yours), which returned to the market as VLTY at the end of June after a RTO priced at five times the suspension price: which was a real gain, not just down to a share price consolidation. Further back, in May 2014 ONE was suspended for a RTO, and returned a month later as BOOM at double the price. In fact buying in just ahead of a suspension can be a good strategy if you expect a positive outcome, as the share price can be depressed beforehand by investors who don't want to be locked in, and/or are unsure of the outcome, creating a buying opportunity. And just the potential of a suspension can create such an opportunity, even if the suspension doesn't actually happen. However, the situation is less clear cut if there has been a very strong run up in the share price just prior to suspension. It is possible for expectations to be too high, for the shell to be overvalued, and for it to trade lower after the RTO. But then again it could be a deserved rerating upwards, for a shell which has previously been oversold. You will need to assess what is fair value for the shell, and its likely deal. And that can be very subjective and speculative, given the lack of info. you are likely to have on the RTO prior to any suspension.

hedgehog 100: VLOX was suspended in December 2015 at 0.2p (market cap. £0.11M.) for a RTO, equivalent to a current 5p consolidation-adjusted. And it has recently returned to market as VLTY after a RTO at 25p, a fantastic profit for anyone who bought in late last year. This shows the merit of monitoring such micro cap tiddlers, and where appropriate, taking a punt. Veltyco Group (VLTY) 22.5p Market cap. £12.8M. http://uk.advfn.com/p.php?pid=quote&symbol=VLTY 09/06/2016 07:00 UK Regulatory (RNS & others) Velox3 PLC Proposed Acquisition and Change of Name Proposed Acquisition of Sheltyco Enterprises Group Ltd., Change of Name to Veltyco Group plc and Notice of General Meeting "Velox3 plc (AIM: VLOX) is pleased to announce the conditional acquisition of the entire issued share capital of Sheltyco Enterprises Group Limited for a consideration of GBP10.9 million to be satisfied by the issue of 43,753,775 new consolidated Ordinary Shares. Sheltyco is a holding company for several subsidiary companies focused on the marketing and promotion of third party online gaming, lottery and binary option operators, such as Betsafe (online casino and sports betting), Lottopalace (lottery) and Option888 (binary options). Key points -- Sheltyco (founded in 2011) is specialised in marketing and promotion activities in three fast growing markets: o Online gaming (Betsafe - online casino and sports betting) o Lottery (Lottopalace) o Binary options (Option888) -- Profitable and cash generative since 2013 -- Following Admission, the Enlarged Group will also review potential acquisition opportunities which fit into the company's profile. -- The net proceeds of the transaction will be used to support the working capital needs of the Enlarged Group and to continue Sheltyco's marketing activities in gaming, lottery and binary options -- The Directors intend to declare dividend payments as soon as it becomes commercially prudent to do so The Company also announces that it has conditionally raised c.GBP538,000 before expenses by way of a Subscription of 2,152,172 Subscription Shares at a price per Subscription Share of 25 pence. The approximate net proceeds of the Subscription of GBP251,000 will be applied as working capital for the Enlarged Group. The Subscription is anticipated to complete in two stages with 1,273,181 Subscription Shares being issued on Admission, raising approximately GBP318,295 (gross), and a further 878,991 Subscription Shares issued in early July raising approximately GBP219,747 (gross). As a term of the Subscription, each Subscriber shall also receive 1 Warrant for every 5 Subscription Shares subscribed, exercisable at 31 pence per Warrant at any time during the period from the date of issue until the 5th anniversary of issue. It is not intended that the Warrants will be listed on any stock market. In addition, the Company intends to convert outstanding loans of c.EUR818,000 into 2,717,932 Ordinary Shares and 503,586 Warrants. Share Consolidation The Company currently has 193,031,360 Existing Ordinary Shares in issue; the last recorded price per Existing Ordinary Share was 0.20 pence on 4 December 2015, the last day that the Existing Ordinary Shares were trading on AIM before suspension. The Existing Directors believe that consolidating the Existing Ordinary Shares will lead to the Enlarged Group having a more readily understood share price and number of Ordinary Shares in issue. Accordingly, the Existing Directors have decided to implement a consolidation of its share capital so that each Shareholder of every 25 or more Existing Ordinary Shares will be entitled to receive one new Ordinary Share. Shareholders with a holding in excess of 25 Existing Ordinary Shares, but which is not exactly divisible by 25, will have their holdings of Ordinary Shares rounded down to the nearest whole number of Ordinary Shares following the Share Consolidation. Conversion of outstanding fees In settlement of certain fees and remuneration due to the Existing Directors in the aggregate sum of EUR106,400, it is envisaged that the Board will propose to issue on Admission to David Mathewson 173,538 new Ordinary Shares and to Mark Rosman 153,846 new Ordinary Shares at the Issue Price. Assuming that these share issues are carried out, David Mathewson's interest in the Enlarged Share Capital on Admission will comprise 249,769 Ordinary Shares representing 0.44 per cent. of the Enlarged Share Capital and warrants over 240,000 Ordinary Shares and Mark Rosman's interest will comprise 486,927 Ordinary Shares representing 0.86 per cent. of the Enlarged Share Capital. Change of Name To reflect the changing nature of the business the Directors propose a change of name to Veltyco Group Plc. Notice of General Meeting The Acquisition is classified as a reverse takeover under the AIM Rules requiring the approval of Shareholders. The Acquisition is also conditional on the approval by the Shareholders of a waiver of Rule 9 of the Takeover Code. As a result, the Company is today also publishing a readmission document (Readmission Document) which is available from the Company's website at www.velox3.com. Conditional upon the completion of the Acquisition, application will be made for the Enlarged Issued Share Capital to be admitted to trading on AIM. An Extraordinary General Meeting of the Company will be held at the offices of Estera Trust (Isle of Man) Limited, 33-37 Athol Street, Douglas, Isle of Man IM1 1LB on 27 June 2016 at 10.30a.m. for the purpose of considering and, if thought fit, passing the resolutions. A copy of the Readmission Document, notice of Extraordinary General Meeting and Proxy Form will be posted to Shareholders later today Trading in the Company's Existing Ordinary Shares on AIM is currently suspended; it is anticipated that following completion of the Acquisition the suspension will be lifted and trading in the Enlarged Share Capital will commence at 8.00 a.m. on or around 29 June 2016. Stockdale Securities is acting as Nominated Advisor and Broker to the Company. Capitalised terms used in this announcement but not defined have the meanings given to them in the Readmission Document." http://uk.advfn.com/stock-market/london/veltyco-grp-VLTY/share-news/Velox3-PLC-Proposed-Acquisition-and-Change-of-Name/71690170

hedgehog 100: Very positive developments at ACO on Wednesday of this week. Check out the premium of the placing price - a whopping 71.43% to ACO's closing share price of 8.75p on 2nd August: 03/08/2016 14:30 UK Regulatory (RNS & others) Acorn Minerals PLC Subscription "The Company is pleased to announce that it has entered into conditional agreements with a group of unconnected investors introduced by Peterhouse Corporate Finance, pursuant to which such investors will subscribe in cash for 16,517,778 new ordinary shares in the capital of the Company (Subscription Shares) at 15p per share (Subscription Price) to raise gross proceeds of GBP2,477,666.70 (Subscriptions).

But that is not currently reflected in ACO's share price, having closed for the weekend at 11.75p, which is about the level of cash per share including the new monies.

hedgehog 100: Thanks for the suggestions. NEW is a new suggestion (no pun intended), not featured on this thread before. New World Oil & Gas (NEW) 0.06p Market cap. £2.8M. http://uk.advfn.com/stock-market/london/new-world-oil-NEW/share-price?java=1 A brief summary of my research into NEW: • Market cap. of £2.8M. (at 0.06p) approximately equates to current cash and net monies due. • Spending reduced massively. • An exciting boss, with a good track-record. (Adam Reynolds, of OPTI fame: HTTP://www.shareprophets.com/views/14907/new-world-oil-gas-white-knight-adam-reynolds-to-the-rescue ) • Potential RTO in the short term. • Possible news on recovery of monies owed (principally EUR 1.0 million Al Maraam SPA deposit). • Possible Belize licences news. • News could be due by mid year. • Share price at 0.06p is at bottom of trading range, showing good support at this level. In conclusion, it looks like a decent investment. There's no way of knowing when news will come: it could be days, it could be months or more. But there's been recent speculation that a potential RTO could be Virtualstock, which Nick Jenkins of Dragons' Den recently invested in, and which the LEG CEO apparently believes could grow into a £billion cap. company. http://www.londonstockexchange.com/exchange/news/market-news/market-news-detail/LEG/12526732.html HTTP://www.virtualstock.co.uk/ A NEW move from the resource sector into tech would make good sense, and would be likely to have a very positive impact upon its share price, as with the recent doubling of MMO.

hedgehog 100: As regards TGL's preferred RTO (reverse takeover) target, it seems highly likely in my opinion that it is Deltenna: "A privately held company, Deltenna is profitable and continues to re-invest profits in the development of new technologies and products." http://www.deltenna.com/about-us/overview.aspx There was an agreement in place for GOS Systems to acquire Deltenna with £5M. of the IPO proceeds, so it makes perfect sense for TGL to RTO Deltenna now that TGL has acquired GOS. TGL has been giving out a consistent message for months now that TWO deals were likely to happen, and also that they might be simultaneous, or nearly so. And the fact that they might be simultaneous suggests that they are linked in some way, as GOS and Deltenna are. This would also help to explain Ilyas Khan's selling, as they would need to keep TGL's market cap. down for the RTO to proceed, as the RTO target (Deltenna) has to be bigger than the shell / RTO vehicle (TGL). Deltenna would have to be given more than 50% of the enlarged equity: e.g. 52%, which with about 0.48 billion TGL shares in issue after last week's placing, would take the number up to about a billion TGL shares. At the current TGL share price of just 0.39p, that would give a valuation of only about £4M. This contrasts with the valuation which was to be afforded to a combined GOS Systems + Deltenna after the IPO, of £30M. Strip out the £2.5 of IPO cash that was to be left after the Deltenna acquisition, then this would suggest a valuation of £27.5M. without the 'excess' IPO cash: which would equate to a TGL share price of about 2.75p based on my above figures. In addition, GOS + Deltenna in TGL would have the benefit of Stanhill's brilliant business-nurturing abilities and contacts, and the support of TGL's impressive shareholder base. If I'm right, then now that GOS has been acquired then TGL and Deltenna should move fast on the RTO. And I believe they will want to do so ASAP, to avoid risking the TGL share price taking off too much again.
