Re-trawled this from the other thread from Nick last month:

4 Oct'13 - 09:00 - 7668 of 8629 0 0

I didn't get a chance to read through all the posts in last couple of day.....However I noted another two points from the RNS is something which I said earlier as well



FIRST POINT (I'll write the 2nd point in next post) - the entire procurement industry is going towards the automation of p2p starting with spend analysis first (s2p).


Games are being played at the highest level - Visa and MasterCard - who are seeking technology companies to meet client demands.


See the yesterday RNS text from Visa :
- "A key differentiator of cloudBuy is its starting point. The system operates on artificial intelligence technology that analyses a buying organization's spend detail in just days"

- "Upon implementation, cloudBuy continues to offer data analysis that produces extensive reports that assist organizations with supplier management, contract negotiations and renegotiations, as well as real time tracking of cost management leading to better business forecasting"



Spend analysis coupled with eprocurement is becoming the next big thing and MasterCard requires two companies to offer this solution to their client whilst Visa offers with just one company, one integrated product suite - ATUK.

OB10 (Tungsten) will be providing similar client proposition where spend analysis will be performed on a regular basis. OB10 (Tungsten) is launching a Bank to assist them to loan the money to supplier for invoice discounting.

TradeShift is a competitor of OB10(Tungsten) and like OB10 (Tungsten) has secured $3billion funds for loans.

Both are going to capture clients starting with spend analysis and we know that there is no competition to ATUK for item level spend analysis - which gives OB10 (Tungsten) an competitive advantage.

Having said that OB10 (Tungsten) doesn't have eprocurement capability and if clients wants a ecommerce based eprocurement (note the phrase), then they will give that lead to ATUK still retaining the e-invoices and invoice discounting part.









See my earlier post on this -


Nick2008 - 30 Sep 2013 - 15:48:58 - 7406 of 7661

The entire industry is going towards the automation of p2p starting with spend analysis first (s2p).

Just a look at the recent events confirms the importance of ATUK.

Last week, Basware formed a partnership with Mastercard for ecommerce offering in the b2b space (purchase to pay)




Yet the point to be noted is that Basware doesn't have the spend analysis capability. So what happens to that part?

dig a bit deeper and you will see that Basware and Bravosolutions have formed a partnership where Bravosolutions will provide the 'spend analysis' (though can't offer item level details as ATUK can, the very reason why Tungsten gave the contract to ATUK) and Basware will provide the ecommerce within the b2b space for the client.



it will take months, if not years, to combine their processes to offer seamless solution to client. ATUK has all these offerings in their integrated cloud based software suite.


What this tells is that Mastercard requires two companies to offer a solution to their client which Visa offers with just company, one integrated product suite - ATUK.

i.e. Games are being played at the highest level - Visa and MasterCard - who are seeking technology companies to meet client demands.

No wonder Visa asked for 3 year EXCLUSIVE partnership with ATUK.

Note that both Basware and Bravosolutions are bigger companies with more client base, though that's history now as the new trend is automation of payables starting with spend analysis, where both these companies put together can't match what ATUK can offer as their technology and product suite can't be changed over night. Basware is worth about $300m whilst Bravosolutions is a part of Italian company.

Both these companies and partnership may perform very as well as not much of software integration is required and can leverage / compliment each other's strength. But if that happens, then it will in the new emerging demand of automated source to payment - something where Visa wants to capture its market using ATUK.

But if there are issues with their partnership or changes required in their software products or in the way the solution has to be offered / customised to client, then its not an easy task - whilst with ATUK, Visa can get it changed or customised to meet the client needs in no time.


ATUK technology was always ahead of its time, that actually was an issue as they had to educate the client both aspects - new way of working and new product to achieve it. In most cases, the senior mgt in the client side didn't want to try anything new for the fear that if it fails, they will be thrown out.

But times have changed now - market is finally catching with new way of working and Visa is giving the much required credibility to ATUK offering.

LOL!


"My share of the year 2014 ATUK posted by myself on AUG 6th at 12p, now 57p"

No-one else had ever noticed ATUK before tara, did they? LOL! How about your post the month before saying there was going to be a placing and the share price was going to 5p.

Tara on this one you jumped on the bandwagon, you didn't research and discover this one as much as you try and pretend, you saw the £50m revenue quote from RD and knew that was enough to get the ramping going.

LOL, even I have a lower average than 12p.

Shows how much research proactive investor do doesn't it, because the first half was flattered considerably by revenue brought over from the last half last year, but since when have tip-sheet pundits been interested in facts.

I think ATUK would have been in the IC list, on the basis of just the word 'Visa', the 2-3mln revenue (as it is sufficiently small) and the lack of evidence that the business model is working yet to generate big revenue jumps.

Unfortunately ATUK has a well-developed product and is not being roadshowed as the 'next big thing', so its clearly unsuitable for being in a list with WAND, NANO and BLUR, particularly the latter which by all accounts is going to change the way all of B2B does business. Because the CEO says it will.

When the Google/ATUK headline caused all the initial excitement here, despite being totally in error... the price shot up.

So clearly what's needed here is some enthusiastic misleading "headlines".

eg. "In 5 years, ATUK will have transformed the way most governments expedite their procurement".

Good morning Guys


Thanks for your comments - feels good to be a part of this group.

Thanks anou1, goblin99, Illtud, jxman, Cammy3, dan de lion, Blackrod1, Geheimnis2


N3tleyLucas,
Thx, on hindsight it feels good to have a change in lifestyle and frank discussion with wife, but the process was rather stressful.
Good find -ATUK included in the expert nine to shine. It's all happening now with Penny shares giving target of 300p and now this one. More to follow I think.


Eaglebeagle
Thx, I'm into long term benefits. Its their technology which is the key here with Visa backing.
- 3 year exclusive deal with VISA i.e. we cover payment as side as well which is the new trend. Tungsten and TradeShift are into this funding part now
- Spend analysis - Only vendor to have a line item level detail. This recent news - came out of nowhere - used by Tungsten (buying OB10 ) for next 5 years, who are also forming their own bank. This puts them into competition with TradeShift which has recently changed their business model by brining Factoring as service to their clients through securing $3.5billion funding.
- Marketplace - Multiple purchase transactions from same or different suppliers are all processed through single basket and single checkout process – competitors can't do this. (new website says this on different pages – see for words like single basket or one basket where the items from different suppliers are paid through one checkout )
- ecommerce background into eprocurement world – real time discounts and price changes from suppliers to buyers
- first company and perhaps the only one to have the highest level of secure payment certification of PCI-DSS in UK. Awarded the UK universities and collage emarketplace contract without a tender as there was no other vendor which had this capability of embedded procurement card payment
- recently care marketplace was implemented in Hertfordshire to be extended to their council services and school
- partnership with SERCO and ability to implement the new health care changes


Panamabob2,
Thx. I researched the uniqueness of atuk technology so believed in their stock. Partnership with VISA and Serco confirmed it all. I can't walk from this without it being bought out at very high premium or we making real serious money with very high share price.


Bobby,
What do I say. Thanks for your enthusiasm - feels good to be a part of this group. And thanks again for your timely email on open offer which I took all.


Saffy,
Didn't know that you were into IT. Thx and now you know the problems I face.
Also, good find for new website and cloud articles you found.


A2584728
please do email me, thx


Keep researching guys

How has he cost investors millions of lost profit?

The share price has risen. Someone holds the shares. That person has made profits.

If someone reading what trout posted then sold out or didn't buy as a result of what he wrote, then that person will have lost profits. But someone else has bought. So the overall profits are the same - or are you saying trout is sufficiently influential as to influence the overall share price?

Anyway, news will be soon, or the shareprice will fall.

Because they have identified how quickly this can rise, so a tip on ATUK will give them an immediate return as their readers pile in, however there could well be a lot ready to pile out if this rises very quickly.

The tipsheets are following the herd, the herd got here first and the share price has multibagged already, to get it to multibag like that again will need some signs of progress from the Company, in the meantime this will be tipped, pumped, dumped and played with. Either stay long and strong or if you are brave trade the waves, but don't take your eye off the fundamentals.

The fundamentals are what will give this the higher valuations and that is definitely medium term, we have two months left of this financial year, they have been working with VISA for over a 18 months now in Australia, as with anything it takes a long time to get people to sign on the dotted line. How much of this has been converted from the pipeline to signed up clients???

"Embargoed for 7:00am release 4 April 2013

@UK PLC

("@UK" or the "Company")

Australian Contract Win and Appointment of Head of Australian Operations

@UK PLC (AIM:ATUK.L), the cloud ecommerce marketplace, is delighted to announce that it has signed contracts with an Australian Government shared service organisation for electronic marketplace research and spend analysis. This follows considerable market entry work undertaken over the course of the last 12 months, which has created a pipeline of approximately AUD $2.4m per annum in opportunities across the Australian public and private sectors. The Company has, together with Visa and its member banks, presented to the majority of Australia's Governments as well as a number of Australia's largest companies. Response to the integrated offering of ecommerce marketplace and embedded payment has been very encouraging."

You lot are persistent, I am out all day and you still call my name, saddos!

I am long and now on a 6 bagger, thank you very much, I have also traded it and posted my thoughts on share price last week, the fact it went to high 30's within hours and then 50p by the end of the week was pretty good going, didn't see anyone else predict that, but then haven't seen many of you latecomers predict anything, it's almost like you are unable to see anything unless tara posts it first, LOL!

I see 60p as the next target but not for the reasons given by tweedle dum and tweedle dee, but it will be back to the uptrend formed from the last rise, note the share price dropped through it and then came back to test it in early October before dropping further,



Whether it goes there quickly or may take some time is debatable, not sure the momentum will be as blinkered as the previous rise, so there may be areas of more profit taking, as people are more cautious.

This needs contract news shortly, because the year end is now just 2 months away, if they aren't able to bump up the figures and just meet the HB's lowest case forecast then that could upset the market.

Tara, this is the header for you Sipp thread, you clearly state not to add to the initial pot, you also state you started with £27,658, you used to give ten tips for the year, I assume some of these didn't do so well, so you must have lost some capital on those and made on others. Now you have invested in shares each year, how do you do that without trading some of the original winners?
You aren't being honest with people, you have also managed to get a following of raw investors and some experienced traders who will pile into your newly tipped and heavily ramped stocks, the price rises and you sell down your stake, when the share price drops and the dust settles you will come back and post as if you haven't touched your holding, in the meantime you start work on another stock or go back to one you left before and start the ramping all over again.

Pensions are a real bore for most, they will let down 98% of the public over the next 40 years, of that I am sure.

Even if you work for the Govt, the returns are going to fall in real terms year, after year.

It is enough to make you cry.!!

So, what do you do?

Well I have a plan that has done me well to date and could change your life.

It is easy, and cheap and fun.!!!

So, you ask what is it.?

First of all, you remove the city leeches who milk your pension day and night for 50 odd years, [ then hand back far less than you had expected.]

STEP ONE.
You open your own low cost SIPP, go to a company who just charges when you buy or sell shares within your pension SIPP.

STEP TWO

Only invest a low amount of cash , say £10,000, MAX £50,000 and never top it up with more money.[ this stops your ever losing more than that amount, an amount that if lost will not ruin most investors]

STEP THREE

Start young if you can, if your older , see if you have built up odd bits of company pensions in jobs you have had in the past, get a cash value for them to transfer into your new SIPP. NOTE only do this for small amounts, if the pot is more than 25k-50k may well do better to keep it in company pension,

STEP FOUR
Research ten tiny AIM market stocks, which must have market caps of under one million pounds each.[Market cap is todays share price times all the shares the company has in issue.]

STEP FIVE
Put 10% of your investment in each stock and wait.!!

STEP SIX
Within two years you should be on the roll, some of your ten will go bust, others will be unmoved but, two or three should be roaring as, new orders are won, new directors come along, the company turns in a profit etc.[could be a hundred reasons.]

You need to aim to grow your pot 30% a year, it will not be in a stright line, shares never are.

After ten years let alone 40 you may end up with rather a lot of money.

You pay no tax till you start to draw your pension

The above is a low cost low risk way to build up a pension, i have done it so you can as well.

My starting fund was £27,658 20th Sep 2005.



The first one above is the best: THE CITY STINKS.!!

GOOD LUCK. SIPP

From three weeks back,


ATUK - Emerging from the Cloud into Global B2B Sunshine! - ATUK

troutisout - 04 Oct 2013 - 08:50:54 - 7663 of 8299

harebridge,
I think the blip was the last spike up before the placing, I think some here used it to sell into and MMs were able to change the average of their short position to a much higher level.

So now we have MMs comfortable and trading back in the money.

There will be a blow off from the frothy recent rises over next couple of weeks, (T trades closing if share price shows no sign of moving up again).

However the placing price is unlikely to be seen, I see a range between 37.5p and 50p being the holding range until we get more news.

News will be important! Within that range after the placing shares have been admitted the valuation will be approx. �40m-�55m, that may be high enough until News of contracts start to flow in. Launches and announcement of launches may not be enough at these levels now.

Other things I will be looking out for are holdings RNSs, whether there are any new substantial holders or many smaller Instis invested in the placing.

Possible further dilution, having looked at the placing in detail, I wanted to look at the history of fundraising here, RD,LD and DH have always supported the fundraisings and kept their percentage relatively high. However 4.5 years ago there were two fundraisings at 1p which gave the placees warrants in the Company at 2p. There are 6.3m of these warrants still outstanding and they have to be taken up within 5 years of issue, so next 6 months. I can't see anyone giving up the chance to take warrants at 2p when the share price is in the 40p's, so I am expecting those to be taken up some time.

Options their are 6.6m options also, with the majority vesting at prices far lower than the current SP, 3m are exercisable now, although all of them have long exercise periods (up to 10 years). For the directors they may hold these, but some of the other options holders may want to exercise these.

Interested to see if anyone has any other things they are thinking about or have found, the next thing is likely to be GM results and the Tungsten IPO kicking off the �0.5m upfront development fee (which from my reading will be spent on the development of the Tungsten product, rather than for other projects).

DYOR,

Trout.
