simon gordon: Praipus, From the Admin Document: In November 2011, Actual Experience secured additional funding of £0.60 million with the majority of the subscription again coming from IP2IPO. With initial sales commencing in 2010, this funding provided the necessary working capital to enable the Company to recruit additional development employees and to establish a greater customer facing presence. Employee numbers increased steadily from eight in November 2011 to the current level of 16, all based at the Company's Bath office. Further equity funding of £4.07 million was received in November 2013 from a group of investors led by funds managed by Henderson. Concurrent with this funding, convertible loan notes totalling £0.51 million, including accrued interest, which had been issued between April and July 2013, were converted into equity. The purpose of this funding was to provide further working capital to the Company and, in particular, to facilitate expansion of its development and sales functions to drive further growth. On 5 February 2014 a capital reduction exercise was performed which converted the Company's share premium account of £5.9 million to distributable reserves, thereby eliminating the deficit on the reserves account, following which the Company was converted to a public limited company on 11 February 2014. ===== That is why they called it an "Introduction Price". There's basically no stock about. I've never come across this before. I did read that Osborne had set up a new hi tech area of the market where tech stocks could ipo with limited free float, not sure if ACT is joining under that umbrella.
simon gordon: Tech Market View - 13/2/14: It's the experience, Actually Today sees the first day of trading for AIM newcomer Actual Experience. The Bath-based company which is a spin out from Queen Mary's University of London, has an intriguing proposition, describing itself as Analytics-as-a-Service provider focussing on the digital supply chain. Basically it analyses the performance of all the business applications used to enable digital business and operations (e.g. online ticketing, video conferencing), on an end-to-end basis to determine what users (customers and internal staff) are actually experiencing. The focus on the digital (rather that the physical) supply chain, marks the company as a product of the digital age, addressing a new set of problems. It says the experience aspect differentiates it from performance management systems, enabling it to identify sub-optimal performance across the supply chain and at the point of consumption. So far it has a small but quality set of customers including Accenture (UK), Cisco Systems, Deutsche Post and Verizon Business. Actual Experience was founded in 2009, backed by a group of early stage investors led by IP2IPO. In November 2013 it raised £4m from a consortium of investors led by Henderson Global Investors. It listed on the AIM at 54.5p with a capitalisation of £15.6m which is shall we say a confident valuation given the size of the business. Revenue for the year to July 31 2012 was £120k, rising to £440k for the 14 months to September 30 2013. There will be plenty to explore once we meet with the management team.
mirabeau: HTTP:// Actual Experience set to become one of LSE's first tech IPOs in 2014 The Bath-headquartered company provides businesses with a "digital analytics-as-a-service" By Sam Shead | Techworld | Published: 15:29, 13 January 2014 Bath-based analytics firm Actual Experience is set to become one of the London Stock Exchange's (LSE) first tech listings when it goes public on the Alternative Investment Market (AIM) at the end of the month. The announcement comes just a week after the LSE said that UK tech companies can raise just as much money in London as they can in New York, despite some experts claiming firms can raise 300-500 percent more on overseas markets like Nasdaq. "I think the AIM market in London is particularly good for companies of our size," said Actual Experience CEO Dave Page. "As a British business with a lot of global customers, the AIM market seemed the obvious choice for us. Related Articles on Techworld "We're a long way through the process," Page told Techworld. "The date is yet to be nailed completely but it should be the end of January or early February." The firm claims its analytics-as-a-service technology allows businesses to analyse their digital supply chain and identify network freezes that other network management tools can't detect. The company, founded in 2009, has already acquired blue-chip customers including Cisco, Standard Bank, the Falkland Islands Government, Deutsche Post DHL, Verizon, Conde Nast, Accenture, ITV and Charles Stanley. The initial public offering (IPO) is set to value the company at £17 million and comes after the company was backed by global investors Henderson to the tune of £4 million last November. "The fundraising is about beefing up the balance sheets so we can support some of the customers that we're acquiring at the moment," said Page. "For a tiny little British start-up they're hard to deal with. We've got some sensational customers on board but they are demanding and they are exhausting so the increase in the balance sheet is about recruiting people in on the front end and the back end to really develop the opportunities we've got with these big customers." Page revealed that he expects to double the size of his 17-strong workforce over the next year. Henderson's UK & Irish fund director, Rob Giles, said: "We haven't come across such an exciting technology company with truly global potential for many years. We believe this has the potential to be the best float of 2014." The company also caught the eye of early investors IP Group, who now owns a 30 percent stake in the business. Mark Reilly, head of physical sciences at IP Group, said: "We see a lot of exciting new inventions at IP Group - several every week – but Actual Experience has one of the most profound and broadly applicable products I have seen. Its value is ubiquitous. There are very few individuals or businesses of any size in the modern world that could not yield great benefit from the Actual Experience product." An LSE spokesperson said there are a couple of other tech IPOs in the pipeline for January in addition to that of Actual Experience.

rainmaker: A consolidation issue or stock split is urgently needed here as the high dealing costs are putting off potential Buyers and having an negative effect on the Company's share price. The cost of the spread is currently 23%(calculated by offer price less bid price divided by offer price-3.25-2.50/3.25 x100.If the Company could cancel its 66mln shares and replace them with 6.6mln new shares then I would estimate the spread and dealing costs to halve.Furthermore I believe that(for the same reason) it is receiving less coverage/exposure from the Press than would othewise be the case-I can't ever remember a "Value" Share being tipped whose share price was less than 10p. It's true that a consolidation issue would just be a paper exercise but it would attract renewed interest in this Company and its products from Stock Market Investors who,I think it's fair to say that, generally, have comparatively high rates of disposable Income.IMHO a CI would be cost effective and money well spent Regards
mark c graham: wal footrot, "i would think the losses and outlook would have a pretty decent part to play in the ratio you mention". No disagreement there, but the losses are not massive in the context of the turnover, and the company already seems to be taking appropriate action to respond to the poor outlook. If and when the market turns, we have a potential multi-bagger (market cap = turnover would not be ambitious for a successful retailer). At the moment, I think the scale of the upside looks good value against the scale of the downside. (If ACT succeeds, you gain 5x plus your investment, if it fails, you lose the lot). The Gylenhammar involvement also brings the potential for some short term trading gains, if investors follow him in in any volume. In summary, it's a gamble but, to me at least, the odds look increasingly attractive.
mark c graham: I topped up this morning on the back of this news. The ratio of market cap to turnover demonstrates the huge potential here. Having a competent activist investor can only help with the delivery of that potential.
rangerover: 23Michaeljc - 14 Sep'05 - 09:52 - 35 of 38 Where did you get info posted about Peter Gyllenhammer , very interesting, wonder where Peter has spotted the value or are we missing something. Interesing to know who he acquired shares from, looks like a institutional investor Management have huffed and puffed but so far failed to deliver shareholder value so its not surprising this company is appearing on certain people radar screens.
23michaeljc: This guy has taken a position in the company. Could be good news. Peter Gyllenhammar Swedish activist investor, Peter Gyllenhammar, specialises in companies trading at substantial discounts to net asset value or in need of restructuring, often through his investment vehicles, Erudite, Förvaltnings AB and Silverslaggen. He often seeks board representation and works closely with management. Gyllenhammar has a background as an analyst and corporate finance advisor to several major Swedish corporations. He has interests in a number of UK public companies, and is chairman of British Mohair Holdings, and a director of Browallia International. Current significant holdings include Densitron Technologies, European Colour, The Jarvis Porter Group, Lonrho Africa and The Sherwood Group.
yump: This has been a dead duck since I bought a small number at the float years ago. Unfortunately I went to sleep in 2003, otherwise would have sold then at 10p. Dont' know why anyone would take it over in the current climate. If I was a predator, I'd wait till its turned the corner, but still out of favour with investors and still cheap and then pounce before the share price rises.
