Anybody know the reason for the fall today?
This should not be this price, if folk don't buy now they will never get in again this low. With the news coming out a bit better now I'm very surprised its still falling and no apparent interest.
I do see what you are saying but as was pointed out by Anjalo:344 the worth isn't in this case what I feel you should be looking at right now, its what it will be worth!! You used the operative word "Acquisition", over time steady but steady they have bought the right thing and as importantly in many purchases the brains and expertise as well. You have a very "well rounded company" now perfectly placed to do probably as they set out to do "Scoop the coop" in all area. Think about what they have bought as well as the brains & how it all knits?
Im no expert but ARCs' technology does look very hi-tech. Gross margins are very high and Ive a feeling ARC could be a highly profitable business sometime in the future. But when? It looked like they were heading towards break-even. But the recent acquisitions have put the kybosh on that! If you take out the interest on cash and the tax credit the business lost £5.3M last year on revenues of £14.4M. They are actually a long way from profitability. I just cant get my head round how little theyve achieved with all the expenditure thats been made over the last 8 years.
Anjalo: Agreed, you have it about right. If we believe the management competent would they invest that much that Hugepants is talking about without a pay off? I think not. This Company has come together well and I think it will see the rewards next year, 2010 latest. I have not looked (been Ill) but the price will have come down on relatively small sales, sales of the impatient. Like some of you folk I am down on this one but I'm sticking.
HugePants, Using the share price in this way, as some kind of intelligent indicator of worth is IMHO not reality for a company like ARC. Since you have obviously done some historical research, try comparing ARC 2003 with ARC 2008 in terms of market cap, cash burn, licenses and products. There is no comparison. The ARC of today is a very well run company with excellent products and low cash burn, yet it had a higher market CAP in 2003, prior to its nose dive to about 13.5p as I remember. I may have the dates slightly wrong but you get my drift. The share price of these low market cap companies is an almost totally irrational thing. It seems to follow some kind of chaos theory, but quality will find a way and in my view this is a quality company. Be patient and the share price may well err in the other direction. All IMHO of course. a
Yes but it looks like its about to change and the business looks well set for the future.
Since floatation in 1999 ARC have posted total losses of £121 million. Total R&D expense is £76 million. And whats the net result of all that expenditure? £14.4 million in revenues and a 2.5 million loss! Stripping out the cash the "business" is now being valued at £16 million. What an abjectly dismal performance.
If this Compactflash doesn't put them well in I don't know what will. This has got to start moving up the way its going. Its a hold for me, I'm in no hurry. I'm confident it will pay in the near future.
A lose Yes, But this looks very good for the future, they are putting the company together very nicely in my view.
2007 year,loss money again, but cash/share = 13p, ?? so up? do not know, down? 15p is support line.
This signing they have just done, is it the one that was in the pipeline that was reported earier in their last report back?
Just had a look on Yahoo for the finish price on another of mine & they have ARC 1 year target as 48p with a high of 55p. Looks as if it will be 2010 before they show a profit though on 3 analists opinions. 3 brokers out of 3 recommend BUY though.
This news should be sending this up more than this, lets hope when the market settles better it will.
Anybody there? Ark post that they have signed a deal & the price goes DOWN. Can you believe it?
It looks as if this is taking a hammering on the ARM results, they are understandably not happy bunnies with the results. That does not mean the results for ARK will be the same although the semiconductor market is down. Has Puffin Tickler said (330)the last statement did seem to have some window dressing but we will see soon. Me, I'm holding, not worth selling out now.
Strange how they put out the info, there has only been one trade for 20,000 shares & that was "buy". These have it has a sell.
Yes I see what you mean PT in respect of like for like & putting it as they have "constant dollar basis" could be seen as a bit of craft. I think we will have to wait till 20th Feb to see things a little more clearly. I would agree the prospects do look good. I bought these in the first place because I realise the importance of power save especially in the medical world and I still have no doubt ARC should do well.
Chavitrai With the mood the market is in the share price hit could have been worse. The statement arguably has plenty of window dressing and could be interpreted as too optimistic: "an increase of over 20 percent on a constant dollar basis" ie significantly less in sterling (about 12%) No mention of how much of this turnover increase is from acquisitions (ie what is gain from like to like) "incremental operating expenses of approximately $3.7 million (£1.9 million) as a result of the three acquisitions completed during 2007" according to the acquisition RNSs they were expecting 0.9 Mgbp so a big hit compared to last year's loss of 1.1 M Prospects look good so there could be a big recovery but I am not surprised at the fall.

Here is what was said: Press Releases ARC International plc Year Ended December 31, 2007 Trading Update Revenue Increased Over 20% Year-on-Year Record Backlog and Sales Pipeline Royalty Revenue Up Approximately 50% ST. ALBANS, England, January 9, 2008 – ARC International (LSE: ARK) today announced that its unaudited revenue for the financial year ended December 31, 2007 is expected to be approximately $30 million (£15 million), an increase of over 20 percent on a constant dollar basis compared to financial year 2006. This takes into consideration the ongoing weakness of the dollar compared to sterling. In addition, both backlog and sales pipeline at January 1, 2008 are significantly ahead of their positions at January 1, 2007. Licensing and maintenance revenues have increased, and royalty income for the year as a whole is expected to be approximately 50 percent greater than 2006. These significant improvements were achieved despite general economic concerns among certain North American customers. During the second half of 2007 this led to delays affecting the closing of approximately $2.0 million (£1 million) of new licensing contracts. These are expected to close early in 2008. Although the impact of these contract delays has been substantially mitigated by good cost management, the EBITDA loss for the year as a whole will be slightly higher than management's previous expectations due to incremental operating expenses of approximately $3.7 million (£1.9 million) as a result of the three acquisitions completed during 2007. Carl Schlachte, president and CEO, commented, "2007 was a year of solid achievements for ARC International with significant progress on the two key planks of the company's strategy. Firstly, overall revenues grew more than 20 percent, which included increased licensing, maintenance, royalty revenues. In particular, royalties were up close to 50 percent over 2006 and now represent approximately one-third of total revenues. In 2007, the company announced the two largest customer agreements in its history, which added to ARC's backlog and enables the company to begin 2008 with its strongest ever backlog and sales pipeline. "Secondly, ARC substantially enhanced its product portfolio and technology base by completing and successfully integrating three strategic acquisitions, and adding world-class technological expertise to the management team. These provide further impetus to ARC's growth potential, and the achievements in 2007 strengthen ARC's competitive position and underpin the company's plans for continued growth." Announcement of Preliminary Results for Financial Year 2007 On Wednesday February 20, 2008 ARC International will announce results for the twelve months ended December 31, 2007. A morning meeting will be held in London for analysts. Interested parties should contact Financial Dynamics or ARC International for more information. # # #
What the bloody hells going on here. Am I missing something? The update doesn't seem to bad to me, ok expenses are higher so what with the acquisitions. The rest seems ok, so why are they selling, any idea?
I have know idea. You say no profit warning, has there been some announcement of some kind come out?
So, no profit warning which says we must be within 10% of the consensus for revenue. Any idea what the consensus is for revenue and costs?
