At a normal AIM company with results coming in July, they would be working really hard right now to put out a contract-type rns on say June 10, another on June 30 so that, by the time the results come out, the tern SP would be at around 30p, and everybody smiling. then the results would cause a real shoot-up to say 50p, and tern would be a rising star on AIM. IoT security and cybersecurity are really HOT markets, after all? Looking, however, at the Management we have at tern these past 2 years I think we will get just a 10-line results rns and the share price will stay flat. Mainly because the rns will have no meat on the bone, claiming that revenue data is off limits within the private company DA. So the tern investor will have to wait till say Autumn this year.... till the takeover and the ultimate stage 3 payout. A sleeper (bottom draw share) till then, I think. Harsh I know, but that's how I see it...

Another crap week ends here but still the this is worth 100 million or so brigade keep on, never ever have I seen an S/P of 8p turn onto 100p overnight it just does not happen even 100% lifts on takeover are rare putting us at 16p on takeover news, A/S is killing the share every week he keeps quiet, bring back A/F in the chair at least he did do some talking even if it was a load of bollox.

Goldfinger ,,You seem very naive about AIM stocks , been shafted plenty of times never ever trust management on AIM, holders are always treated badly by management on most of the AIM stocks I ever held. If this is the bees knees the Rolls Royce of IoT security why the hell ain't takeover buyers all over it ???

SW talks about stage 3 where stealth mode persists, with increasing 'land grab' Maybe 3a is where bids come in to buyout DA, and DA shrugs them off as being too low. Maybe 3b is when they finally concede. Do we reckon that 3a has started already? My only fear is that if a major vendor (eg DEL, Intel, .. ) swallows up DA (with DA losing its name) then some of the (24?) verticals might not appeal to the acquirer... and might be ditched (eg oil&gas, surveillance, ...). The best scenario is where DA would have the freedom to enter whatever verticals it wants, even after the takeover.

Last word on the subject that is why I believe A/S has to keep the market up to speed with whatever D/A are doing so the share price reflects it, and any takeover action will have to be worked against that.
wardy, you are correct to an extent when you mention takeover premiums being no more than 100 or 200 per cent of the existing share price. HOWEVER, that only applies when the acquired company is itself listed and the sp is more or less up with events albeit a couple hundred per cent off. This is ultimately a takeover of an unlisted entity with no official obligation to tell anyone how business is progressing. As such, anything related to it (in this case TERN), could in fact be many many multiples out of kilter (as all of us on this bb know). Any buy out therefore will bear no resemblance to anything currently priced. (I think you know this mate).
Wardy it will not be a takeover, it will be a private company being bought for whatever price someone is willing to pay for it. Al

The wider market still clueless about D/A, people talk about stage 3, been on the markets for years and very rarely does a takeover premium rise more than 100% from the previous days price, so in my eyes if stage 3 is anywhere near A/S needs to get news moving to the markets and get the TERN S/P moving sharply, the latest news is very good why has he not done an RNS?

Being this cool it can't be long before the first takeover approach is received.. Tick tock. http://www.crn.com/slide-shows/internet-of-things/300084589/15-cool-iot-security-startups-that-are-keeping-connected-devices-safe.htm/pgno/0/7

wardy33310 Apr '17 - 09:05 - 63280 of 63288 1 1 Why is A/S reluctant to RNS anything? 1) There is nothing to say worth an RNS. 2)He does not care about shareholders and is too busy with his workload. 3)Revenue is sub-standard and would be embarressing to post. 4) Revenue is OK but not worth an RNS. 5)Company is in takeover talks with a few potential buyers. 6)Company is still being built up and will require a few more Years to be established. 7)IoT world is a lot slower developing than most thought. 8) None of the above and its all a mystery. *********************************************************** Wardy got filtered by some for that one. Any more posts like that and he will be banned from the rampers thread !

Until we get some news on revenue the market will keep us poor, presentations, exhibitions are all good but don't help the share price at all, been wallowing around the 8p mark for ages now and nothing except revenue news or takeover interest will be the only thing that will help. Where is the New Chairman? been Months trying to find one?

kk, indeed. I don't know why anyone is concerned about a hostile takeover and our BoD having to sell for a ridiculous lowball offer. It's not going to happen. Tern and AL own over 70% of DA so a predator couldn't go that route. To accumulate on the open market the tens of millions of Tern shares neccessary you'd push the price into the pounds. Not sure where we stand if an offer for Tern came in but if the BoD thought it was a bad deal and brought along the key shareholders then that would be a non-starter too.
S.w. This low share price could be an accident waiting to happen! I would take three times today's price and so would many holders. But why should it take a hostile takeover approach for terns management to start to release the news that shows the value that has been built at device authority. I do believe that terns management have left tern vulnerable to an opportunist approach. It will be to late if a buyer buys stock in the market and makes a quick move. The prices for some of these other cyber security companies show how minuscule the price of device authority could be bought for at these levels.
You can say that again.

I think if Darron wasn't performing ALP & Tern would have decided to get rid now.. How many other co's have the security partners we have lined up? Cumulocity takeover shows the fragmented iot platform markets are starting to consolidate as predicted by many of the sector watchers.. what will be interesting is where our partnership with cumulocity stands now.. is it extended or replaced?

MR 61852 CPX are not "trying to go it alone". As part of their strategy they currently have licensing deals with Murata and AVX, major producers in their field and IMO likely contenders in any future takeover approach. Today's drop in sp is likely due to the supplier problem (now supposedly rectified), which led to a drop in revenue for the reported period.

Intel splashing the cash, all hotting up in car sector. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-39253422 US chipmaker Intel is taking a big bet on driverless cars after announcing a $15.3bn takeover of specialist Mobileye. Intel will pay $63.54 per share in cash for the Israeli business which develops systems for "autonomous driving". Mobileye and Intel are already working together, along with German carmaker BMW, to put 40 test vehicles on the road in the second half of this year. Intel expects the driverless market to be worth as much as $70bn by 2030.

Mr Harrison this is not about anything else other than you comparing this with a company that has allegedly been proved to be a fraud. I am certainly not trying to be clever, as you put it and I have not objected to any other comments you have made.I also have read every article written on SP about Tern and their stance has softened of late. I will not post any of their articles, as they are looking into the problem of copyright infringement.However I will quote a recent comment they made....DA may hit the big league or receive a blow out takeover bid...their words not mine.

PTC Inc. (NASDAQ: PTC): The owner of ThingWorx, noted their record bookings momentum being created by a diverse set of IoT applications, such as augmented reality, the connected car, and industrial IoT. We believe the IoT segment at PTC could be much larger than its current focus in Service Lifecycle Management (SLM), and this first-mover ecosystem will likely become a takeover target for the likes of GE, Siemens and other major industrials. http://seekingalpha.com/article/4049120-iot-monthly-review-2017-big-start

interesting, medium term, how the 2 bubbles are getting bigger On the one hand the 'join-the-dots' gang who see the tie-ups increasing all the time, and contemplating/hoping for a takeout 'bid' situation. Maybe DA gets nudged by a major vendor about a possible takeover... and politely refuses. And then waits for the next bidder. We don't know a thing, so far, about the end game. Has it started yet? On the other hand, the lack of revenue on paper since that 300k one last autumn, so that the bashers' bubble gets bigger too (tern is no unicorn in terms of revenue, they'll cry) So which bubble bursts first?
19-02-2017
For what it's worth SP have just published its view on the TERN results. Yes critical but not as scathing as in the past and it does suggest that DA may hit the big league or receive a blow out takeover bid.HT
17-02-2017
As for a takeover target it's pretty much nailed on and I just cannot see it being any less than a few hundred million. Sounds crazy but it's not.
I understand the share value and the paper profit...wish the revenue was there in the report to back it up!!Wonder will this be a takeover target very shortly for vertical distribution?
16-02-2017
4 questions for anyone going to the AGM. 1)Who decided on the 7p placing price when clearly it could of been higher over subscribed? 2)Is the company now self sufficient meaning no more imminent placings? 3) Has there been any takeover interest in TERN? 4)Why is news very sparse when we can all see there is plenty to report? They won't answer any but well worth putting them on the spot and see how they react.

As I have said before I like many am locked in following the massive cheap rights issue to City boys at the expense of PIs. TERN will have to come out with some company changing news for the SP to move. Any normal news (widely anticipated and debated on these boards)face selling of rights and dilution of cheap warrant conversion. In a nutshell nothing short of a takeover will get the SP beyond 20p in the next 12 months IMHO. If TERN turn up to the Investor Show in April it will be interesting to hear their stories.Last year's presentation from Angus have proved to be false, shallow and spin!
02-02-2017
aimshare..Interesting comparisons, got a feeling things are changing slowly for the better, any buyers in the next trading session will certainly be paying more than 9.5p for sure,still a few traders around but if the price rises they will disappear slowly. Wonder if the Mcfee man was tempted by the chair at TERN, two good appointments for D/A but so far no news of the Chairmans position here, perhaps they see it as a short term job due to a takeover here and don't want it, been a while looking for someone but it seems D/A can get the best out there, maybe the thought of working with the old school Forrest and Leith has put them off.

Lol. I think this thread is worse for rampers.troutisout - 23 Jan 2017 - 10:23 - 5960 of 6159 - 0Back to the Company, my money is on PTC buying DA, they share too many partners for them not to. I also think this is probably already a done deal and that certain milestones are needed before a final announcement. How far do PTC want DA to take this before they takeover? The longer it takes surely the more expensive the acquisition?
On the other hand the radio silence may be because stage three is underway ,and a sale is imminent.the tern board might just outmanoeuvre any takeover ,buyout etc

ROFL !!!!!Had this been said by anyone else, Trouty would have spent all day and night taking that poster apart, dissecting each and every word, calling the poster every name under the sun gleefully aided by the likes of Milse and Soft.What low life hypocrite is Trout.troutisout - 23 Jan 2017 - 10:23 - 5960 of 6159 - 0Back to the Company, my money is on PTC buying DA, they share too many partners for them not to.

A takeover of Device Authority would be very hard, they could get 57% by buying out TERN then they would have to negotiate with A/L and the others, don't quite know who they would approach first TERN or the other owners.
18-01-2017
What it will do if it isn't a takeover of FITB is focus the minds of NOMADs on how announcements should be drafted/approved
harrissen - 18 Jan 2017 - 11:47 - 54937 of 54949 - 2£100m+ takeover now getting bandied about in some quarters?That would disappoint me at this juncture ...kk
£100m+ takeover now getting bandied about in some quarters?
08-01-2017
No placings coming they have enough cash to see this through, still think stage 3 will come first, the worry is what will the S/P be at if that happens , like I said the other day very rarely do takeover prices exceed 100% premium above the S/P before its made. We are mostly here banking on stage 3 happening, so H/Q need to get the S/P moving upwards somehow, or if this company really is the dogs bollocks someone is going to get a bargain.
06-01-2017
Sorry those sort of articles have been posted time and time again and have meant nothing for Tern, more and more posters are coming to the sad conclusion that the directors are treating us as mushrooms and using Tern as a private piggy bank. The only reason why most of us are still here are the regular updates from DA and even these have been drying up recently. The reason for the disgraceful continuing radio silence is a takeover of DA surely if true in any way there would be more interest in Tern so you could slowly add a good % and get DA cheaper. No evidence of this my thoughts are more bearish, we need an excellent update so stale holders of which there are plenty just don't jump ship at any sign of an uplift

Anyone see the Mail yesterday? There was an article that top solicitors are being attacked by Chinese hackers making millions on takeover negotiations someone should give Darron a call!!
