smithie6: ...the numbers wrt this share price are terrible imho
martina pescatore: An interesting indication that zoo, as per news on 4th August on their website, want to demonstrate to potential customers at the IBC 2016, how they deliver 250,000 minutes of outstanding quality subtitling per month. Clearly this is not the amount that goes through the zoo ticker on the website, as the ticker goes at about 1 million per week (4 million per month). The ticker, therefore, is likely to be where they have securely stored subtitles/captions, etc., for clients. The 250,000 per month referred to above, must therefore be what zoo produce themselves. A quick search on the web shows that subtitling rates vary considerably, although $4 per minute for tv/movie content seems to be a reasonably fair amount acceptable by translators and acceptable to companies paying them. Other costs incurred are also likely, but I am not knowledgeable in this field. Does anybody know what zoo might be charging per minute for subtitling? Zoo, with their software and Zoocloud must be able to offer efficiencies that other older fashioned companies cannot, as well as the add-ons, such as secure storage, reformatting, and future packaging and digital distribution, etc. Even if zoo are getting only $5 per minute for subtitling, after allowing for translators and other costs, plus $1 per minute for securely storing, total $6 per minute, this equates to 6 x 250,000 x 12 = $18,000,000 per annum. Just guesswork clearly, but all I have to go on really. The above could only reflect the current run rate and it may not yet be correct to annualise it. However, Zoo also do other work and have other sales other than subtitling. If the above is anywhere near correct, then the prospects for the company do seem very reasonable, IMHO. See also item 5 of the 4th August news item on their website. Zoo seem upbeat about the next big thing in the video industry, which they say is enriched metadata. If they are correct, and they have a software offering which might help search and find such metadata, this could be worth something to those digital online retailer and movie/tv/video entertainment companies. Is any of this potential in the share price? Personally, I hope that with the various innovations that the company has made over the years, they are about to pay off. NIA and DYOR.
martina pescatore: Yes 100,000 of shares traded over a two week period is a small amount as a number but one must appreciate the small market cap that applies here with Zoo. 100,000 shares is nearly a third of one percent of the company. I reckon that there might be a free float of around 20% of the shares in issue, which makes circa 6,600,000 shares. Therefore 100,000 now represents circa 1.5% of the free float of shares. The majority (circa 80%?) of the shares in issue appear to be tightly held. With such a small market cap the share price could move very materially upwards if the company can start generating profits and turn the business around. The latter appears to be happening and the recent more confident and optimistic outlook statement points to a brighter future, in my opinion. The potential for the company makes the current share price an attractive risk / reward investment. I am holding and still buying so the free float might be getting smaller still. NIA and do your own research.
bakunin: If they are short of stock, they will try to frighten holders into selling. We'll know that when posters like CHESTY and abc123 etc appear saying they know all about the industry and that ZOO's products are rubbish. Sometimes there is a stampede and the share price collapses, any news gets a negative slant applied to it etc and they manage to get things moving downwards. Otherwise, I seem to have observed with other "in-play" small caps in general that they will discourage buyers with a large spread, mop up sales by impatient holders and then at some moment use a "planted" weekend tip etc to gap the price up causing a scramble by day-traders thinking a move is taking place and who will take the accumulated stock off the MMs at much higher prices. The MMs don't care whether the share price goes up or down. They just want to manage the way in which it moves and make the trend predictable (to them). At present, I think they are positioning for a move upwards. If CHESTY et. al. reappear then they will have got whiff of non-stellar results and they will be positioning for an eventual move downwards. Of course, if you hold to see the company's strategy pan out, then the whipsaws are no more than pantomine.
martina pescatore: We all want a higher share price I suspect. However, the share price needs to reflect the performance of the company and the perception of the market. A share price of 20p, for example, would equate to a mkt cap of circa £6.7M. If the company makes £1m PBT, and using a P/E of 20, gives a mkt cap of £20M, less circa £6M debt/borrowings, gives £14M mkt cap or a share price of circa 42p. Personally, I would be very disappointed with a 20p share price after a positive trading update, such as for example, a good trading performance, growing demand for existing and new software and services, a growing customer base and a growing pipeline of new customers, and a £1m profit for the year. If the trading outlook is very good, the visibility of earnings that the company is aiming for (read the last few results statements) should hopefully be sustainable and repeatable, and with less reliance/emphasis on a large single customer. Consider also the two new senior business development staff (for Europe and International markets) recently having joined the company (from competitors such as BTI Studios and Deluxe) and ask why? and the new products that they have brought out and ask why? It all sounds very positive from where I am sitting, but perhaps I am biased and looking at it too positively. Time will tell and I do not want to get ahead of myself of course, but should Zoo turn things around and start to have good visibility of repeatable earnings and make a sustainable and growing profit, the share price has the potential to increase many multiple times. Into the medium/long term, this could be a very different company with a very different valuation. NIA and DYOR. Here's hoping. I hold shares in Zoo Digital, naturally.
martina pescatore: I have read an informative description/definition of delayed trades and what they might mean, here on the iii website: [...] The comment is not about Zoo but another share stock and it is from 2010; it reads as follows... "Ordinary Trade Delayed Publication traded as type OK. These trades are held back fr unknown reasons and published at later times. When they are published their accumulative effect on the share price is actioned now. Im sure there are logical reasons for delayed trades. However there are a number of delayed trades being action when the price is either about to rise or fall. These delayed trades being actioned late often if not always seem to have a contrary price action to the present share price price action. I dont want to suggest share price manipulation because i have no evidence to prove motives. However, the effect of these delayed trades on low volume trading seems to thwart major price movements from developing. I am not sure in whos interest this would be." The reasoning described is very interesting and if one thinks about it, could it be applicable here and now, for Zoo?
martina pescatore: I have been doing some crude "what if" calculations. If Zoo make a £1M profit this year (not impossible as they were EBITDA $0.9M at the half year and business appears to have been increasing), this £1M profit could be after tax as they have tax losses to use up I understand. If we adopt a p/e of 20 (not particularly high for a growth stock it would appear), this gives a mkt cap of £20M. Less dilution from options and debt, say £5M worth, give a diluted mkt cap of £15M. Crude, I know. With circa 33M shares in issue now, this gives a potential share price of 45p. This suggests to me that there is substantial potential upside from the current share price of 10.6p. Zoo has over the last few years or so failed to meet market expectations and the share price has been hammered, hammered so hard that at 6p (I think it reached) the mkt cap was circa £2M. The current share price of 10.6p in my opinion still reflects the previous disappointments that the company has offered the market, until it started recovering about a year or so ago, but it does not reflect much, if any, of the potential going forward. There in lies the potential for share price growth, particularly as the market they are operating in is growing, with clear growth trends and because Zoo seem to have a good product which is taking market share. If zoo can turn a profit and meet market expectations, then the rating the company is on should change. The market rating Zoo has been on suggests to me that the market has almost been not expecting anything, or anything other than disappointment, from Zoo. Therefore, if Zoo better this, and things are starting to look positive again, then market perceptions could quite easily change for the better, and logically market ratings should follow. Moving forward, if growth continues and Zoo were put on a forward P/E of 20, and were projected to make £2M next year, then the current share price looks particularly attractive. (£2m x 20 = £40M, less £5M for dilution and debt = £35M mkt cap (or 106p share price.) I daren't do the calculations going further forward, because the numbers and multiples of the current share price get silly. There would be ups and downs in the share price naturally if the above hypothesis materialises, but as long as the company can grow t/o and profits, and importantly meet or exceed market expectations, then the upward trajectory in the share price would normally follow. New buyers at higher prices than recent lows are often longer term holders/investors as they are seeing the story emerge and the potential achieved, when a company grows and grows. Ultimately, the aim would be for Zoo to start paying its shareholders for holding its shares and not expect shareholders to pay for holding them. All IMHO and NIA, etc.
mudbath: Agreed Nicyts. If you are indeed correct,then I believe that we might see the ZOO share price edge steadily,yet unspectacularly,in an upward direction. What do you say Bakunin ?
martina pescatore: Hi I do not have too much to add to the debate, but it does seem to me that the phrase “zoo are at the tipping point” is a very interesting one. As with most software companies, once costs are covered, the scalability of the technology can mean that a software company can be very profitable indeed. So, if zoo has developed a useful and scalable product/s (which it appears to have done) and there is demand for the product/technology (which there appears to be) and zoo can get/win the extra custom (which it appears to be), this all points to a better second half than first half. More profitability perhaps? And what P/E for a software co in a growth market? Therefore, talk about the scalability of their technology and “zoo being at the tipping point”, bodes well in my view. I am very much looking forward to future updates but am checking my enthusiasm as zoo are not there yet. However, as you say, with a current mkt cap of under £3m, there is considerable room for share price upside, especially as zoo seem to have the technology/products in a market where there is significant growth, and the company is seeing this first hand, as per latest interims. Good luck all
abcxyz1: Can anyone help me with any answers to any of these questions about ZOO ? (BTW I'm not Chesty) 1) what are (English corrected, whoops !) the fundamentals of the ZOO system for subtitles ? I struggle to understand ... surely the film or content appears on a screen....(after editing etc and sound/music addition...using software application X...before moving it to ZOO software application Z) ....and a user stops it at the right frame...and types in the subtitle text...and hits save or auto save and then goes to the right location in film to enter the next subtitle text so on till finished ... and then save the film...and register and store back ups etc. Then provide to distributors or outlets as required. I struggle to see the clever (or ZOO) part in that process. Appears like a low value process imo. 2) Is the overall global market for subtitling a juicy target for ZOO ? (I dont know....I never watch anything I have no idea about the mkt) 3) ZOO software system Z for adding subtitling to a film... can it also be used for doing the dubbing process....or is that a diff. system from different company ? 4) How come ZOO has been producing its software systems for X years.....and claiming they are making good progressing..every year !! far as I can see....they just keep raising & consuming more and more cash !! (not generating it) while turnover over last few years (excluding the translation turnover) has been flattish, except for jump in turnover in last interims ( a co. needs to generate cash..and with some regularity/ support the cap. value of the co. for investors..ZOO doesnt) 5) Before they said that they were excluding turnover from translations....and were keeping out of that... but last accounts seem to me to say that the jump in turnover is because of translation work that was subcontracted... is the turnover jump real and beneficial....or just unimportant if it comes from low margin one off subcontracted work I couldnt decode it all. 6) What is the model for how ZOO gets paid ? 7) what is it about the number of subtitles ? 8) Does the co. still own the USA business it bought , was it in 2007 ? still going?, well ? 9) I cant grasp the logic for loan notes converting at such a high price relative to the share price ? Why are the lenders so generous ?? (normally on AIM any lenders wants a lower share price than the market price, their pound of flesh...) 10) How come, with big % jump in H1 turnover..and recalling that cost base was reduced 1-2 yrs ago..that it didnt generate any CASH ?! (is the MD just a techie gone wild.....just into products and making them better or new....with no/little interest in balancing the books or paying down debts or paying a 'D _ _ i'
