blueskyventurer: IS this A bishop, a bigdish director ramping his own shares? Small Cap Dog of the Day Bigdish, DISH Aug 6, 2020 by blueskyventurer 6 comments •451 Reads• Edit Bigdish – Buyer Beware The share price has declined from a high of 9.2p to 2.25p. (I have no position) There are many reasons to avoid putting hard-earned cash into this company, but most importantly because the company is a vehicle whose the only purpose seems to be to move wealth from investors to management. I’m still trying to figure out where has all the money gone? With limited resources (Management and cash) Bigdish plan to take on dining reservation and delivery service apps. Investors have to believe that the current zero-revenue business model generating zero cash will generate a critical mass network of restaurants and users of value. All this must happen with the current cash and without mass dilution as the company raises more funds for shareholders to profit. Why this should be on every private investor’s barge pole list Late to the party – Competition has already achieved critical mass and networking-effect. Competing companies have already achieved a critical mass and networking effect. The competition includes; • OpenTable have 5m+ users, it also pays customers to use the app with a reward scheme • Deliveroo 10M+ users, • Uber Eat 100M+ users, • Just Eat 5M+ users. The larger restaurant group have their own personal app all for free. Bigdish with 50k+ users will need to spend substantially on marketing to reach any meaningful size. A musical chair for CEO’s and Strategies • Aug 2018 Listed with Joost Boer, CEO • Aug 2018 announced Asia company acquisition and strategy. • Nov 2018 (3month later) consider the sale of Asian business. • Jan 2019, Bigdish hires new CEO Sanj Naha and refocus strategy to the UK.

I assume this is to raise the share price before they tap investors again. The only successful strategy the company has executed so far is to tap investors for cash and pay it to management. (see below) Raising Cash, raising more cash, and dilution • Aug-2018 Listed with 285M shares at 4.5p raising £2.2M. • Jun-2019 placing 29.2M shares at 7.2p company says its fully fund until 2021. • July 2019 issued more share 23M shares issued apparently to pay management (Salary sacrifice) what happened to the cash raised in June? • Aug 2019 13.8M shares issued to for Poucher shareholders. • 24 Jul2020 More dilution as employees asked to take shares instead of pay. 24M shares issued • 29 July BigDish Plc (LON: DISH), announces that Jonathan Morley-Kirk, Non-Executive Chairman, sold 349,045 shares that were recently issued under the Salary Sacrifice Scheme, at an aggregated price of 2.3 pence per share on 28 July 2020 Needs to raise significantly more than £2M to have a viable business I’ve modeled out Bigdish's cost curve (see below). The cost of building an app can be approximately £250K-£500K, Bigdish has already raise £4.5M, and the money used has struggled to build the user base. The largest cost will be the marketing cost for building the user base and network. Using the model at a 50% growth rate they would need to spend close to £15-20M to gain any meaningful scale of business. With a limited network of restaurants and users and more successful competition it hard to find any value in this company. Possible they can tap up investors for more cash indefinitely, but I only see this share being valued at 0p at some point. Models cost for building a network. Finally, I leave you with what employees have to say on Glassdoor (employee company feedback website), and you can come to your own conclusion. hxxps://www.glassdoor.co.uk/Reviews/BigDish-Reviews-E1622525.htm

montynj: The fact is big chains are joining the app. They obviously like it. Why pay 30% commissions to Deliveroo etc..bigdish will be much lower cost and it makes sense to not charge anything in the short term to gain traction and onboard the restaurants and chains...and appears to be working. a SaaS model shifts primarily to a B2B model for restaurants to use as they wish to their existing and new customers. Also the restaurants will be able to have delivery and pick up on their own website (powered by bigdish) and later dish will add reservations.So restaurants have complete control as to how they want to engage and DISH take zero transactional fees or commissionDynamic pricing hasn't disappeared but it is now more flexible and DISH are not trying to shoe horn restaurants into accepting a set of rules."The pricing strategy of the SaaS model has yet to be determined, as this will be partly determined by the functionality of the platform as it evolves."""The key advantages for a restaurant are: -- No commissions or transactions fees but rather a fixed monthly fee; -- The merchant owns the customer relationship; -- The merchant owns the data; "Marketing and SaaS models.....Dish will be more of a b2b platform which is why we will enable restaurants to receive delivery and pick up orders on their own website not just on bigdish app and later reservations.the onus is on the restaurant to use the platform as they wish. A transactional model makes money from user activity and as such needs a big marketing budget eg uber, Deliveroo etc. SaaS model don't need thatSo restaurants are more likely to push bigdish to their customer base coz DISH not taking a percentage of the bill. For examples if I am a restaurant and my customers are ordering via deliveroo and i am paying 35% i have every incentive to steer the traffic to bigdish or to my website with delivery powered by bigdish and save the 35%.That is why a SaaS model gives the restaurants the tools to engage how they want too and when they want tooDISH will of course still have the app for consumers but now consumers will have more reasons to use bigdish and not just booking a table with a discountSo marketing is different

addaboy: Saw this on LSE Alliance News) - BigDish PLC said Friday it still believes its shift to as a Software-as-a-Service business model will be "well received" by restaurants. The firm also noted it has funding to see it through the rest of 2020. In early July, BigDish unveiled plans to move beyond current focus of being a reservation platform and launch BigDish-to-GO delivery app. Also plans "Super App", which will serve as an umbrella app, with other platform within it. On Friday, the company said it will give an update at the end of July on the progress of BigDish-to-GO. BigDish said the app could "disrupt" larger aggregators who charge commissions of up to 35% "The advantages of a SaaS delivery model are very clear and there is definite incentive for restaurants to have more of a direct relationship with their customers who can place orders either via BigDish or from their own website (powered by BigDish)," the company added. BigDish continued: "For every order that a restaurant receives via the SaaS model it will result in the restaurant saving up to 35% when compared to the same order being received via an aggregator delivery platform. It is not unusual for a restaurant to use several delivery platforms and the BigDish-to-GO platform is a cost effective solution for a restaurant either as a stand-alone product or alongside an aggregator platform." The company noted that delivery platforms attract premium valuations and if successful this could be reflected in the future performance of the company's share price. Shares in BigDish closed 6.9% higher in London on Friday at 1.55 pence each. BigDish-to-GO will initially be available to restaurants that have their own delivery capability, BigDish said. The company noted that, based on its own discussions, an "increasing number" of restaurants have developed their own delivery capability during the pandemic. "With a view to progress beyond the beta phase, the company is already working with its first last mile partner, which will be integrated with the BigDish app," BigDish added. The company already has agreements in place with the first select restaurants that will pilot the app with a view to a much wider rollout. Turning to funding, BigDish said the pricing strategy of its new SaaS model has yet to be determined. "Given that the technology development for building out the complete SaaS product is ongoing, the company considers that, alongside technology development, restaurant acquisition is the key focus. The company notes that similar SaaS platforms have prices typically in the range of several hundred dollars per month," BigDish said. Given that the restaurant industry is expected to take some time to recover, the company will not be charging restaurants until the SaaS model is further developed. BigDish added: "The company is having active discussions with experienced technology investors with regards to further funding. The company will update the market should these discussions prove successful.
