agreed, in fact I said as much on here in June. I use the-saleroom all the time to find auction items but the 6% internet charge means I always check to see if the auction house has its own free bidding platform as ATG charges are too high

as ATG develops the US acquisition and assuming it becomes a significant revenue source, we may see ATG list on otcmarkets in the US in the next year or two?

I have been looking at this (following a tip somewhere) for a while.
I think while a good idea that it is massively overvalued. I remember thinking the same about purple bricks. Post 81 above has it in a nutshell - price to sales scary.

It has a lot further to fall I think

Sales growth slowed down in last half year. They've diluted shareholders. Price to sales scary too at 6.5 (as well as the PE). They have a reasonable operating margin ... but revenues need to grow more to justify this valuation. And if they push harder to get the revenue up, the op margins may start to drop (which then causes other issues). Shareholder base not very inspiring ... you would expect to see a Baille Gifford in there if this was investable.

Berenberg 'bullish' on diversifying Auction TechnologyBerenberg believes there are 'multiple levers' that can be pulled at Auction Technology Group (ATG) to generate outperformance.Analyst Bharath Nagaraj retained his 'buy' recommendation and target share price of 900p on the provider of online auction marketplaces, which was trading flat at 795p.The stock has gained 13% since Nagaraj initiated coverage in September 'but this is after it briefly zoomed past our 900p price target and then declined on the back of softer guidance from the company for full-year 2023'.He said this was driven by 'non-operational metrics' such as interest rates and currency movements.'While total hammer value could be at risk given a decline in asset prices in recent months, we believe this can be largely offset,' he said.'Our view remains that Auction Technology Group is a strong multi-year growth story that is rapidly diversifying through new revenue streams, such as payments and marketing. Thus, we remain bullish on the name despite it trading at 28x price/earnings.'

ATG having a bad day, could be an opportunity at this level but I'm happy to wait as it still seems over priced to me, if there's a global stock market 'correction' in the near future I can see the share price dipping below 600p (but not for long)...fortune favours the brave!

"Auction Technology Group is a fast-growing, well managed business at the forefront of its field. The shares, at £9.43, are a buy. "

very bullish article but I disagree that the shares are a buy at £9.43 (unless one has a 3 to 5 year view), seems overpriced to me, I expect the share price to drift lower, perhaps to the low/mid 800's at which point I would take a punt.

Auction Tech Group plc (ATG) issued an impressive set of HY results this morning. Revenue was £57.7m, up 16% on a proforma basis year-on-year and up 67% on a reported basis, driven by resilient growth in Total Hammer Value as well as strong growth in value-add services. Adjusted EBITDA was £26.8m, up 58% year-on-year, profit before tax was £3.3m, compared to a loss of £22.6m in the same period last year. Management increased revenue growth guidance and now expect low double digit proforma revenue growth for FY22. Margin guidance remains unchanged and management remain confident of achieving medium-term targets of mid-teens plus proforma revenue growth and mid-high 40's Adjusted EBITDA margin percentages. So more solid growth and profitable growth. Valuation is the main cloud, forward PE ratio is nearly 37x and comfortably bottom quartile for the Software & IT Services sector. A solid, profitable and high growth business. But also expensive, one to monitor for now....

I'm not so sure, I'm still watching from the sidelines. 2024 EPS forecast is 38.3p vs a current share price of 932p, so still trading at a >24x the 2 year forward PE... It's still on 45x for 2022. If it can get back into the £7 range where it IPO'd then it starts to get interesting IMO.

ATG, tipped in SCSW, the share price having gone up this morning, I thought I'd experience the platform by bidding in an on-line auction today. I am familiar with using on-line and room-based auctions, both for property (real estate) and chattels. To register on I entered my contact details, also required to provide my credit card details. It wasn't made clear at the outset why I needed to provide the card details when I hadn't actually bought anything at that stage but after registration I read that it's a financial check: even so, the thought of my card details "lying around" on their system was worrying so I've deleted the card. After completing the registration, including verification, I searched for something to buy, I used to collect old postcards so as that's a market I've knowledge of I browsed the few upcoming lots. This is where it got confusing. Having found a lot I wanted to bid for, I entered my maximum bid. My maximum comfortably exceeded what seemed to be an existing bid from someone else. Next, I visited the auctioneer's site (via a link on TSR site) where I had to register my details there. I entered my TSR password and that got me a confirmation from the auctioneers. I selected the lot in the catalogue and placed an online bid in readiness. Thinking perhaps I shouldn't have placed another bid, I emailed the auctioneer to check that i wouldn't be bidding against myself. I didn't get a reply. The auction was this morning starting at 10am and just over an hour later the auctioneer got to my lot. By then the information indicated that the highest bid in anticipation was about £20 below my maximum bid so I increased my maximum on the auctioneer's website. My bid was successful, paying about £20 less than my increased maximum. I then contacted the auctioneer direct to ask how it worked from now on. The short answer is that the auctioneers have invoiced me for the total payment including the buyer's premium and will be sending me a revised invoice shortly for the cost of sending the item to me. The payment, however, is not made to TSR but direct to the auctioneer. I asked the auctioneer why I needed to provide my card details to TSR and they didn't seem to know, or rather I didn't understand what they said.

Overall, I found the requirement to provide my credit card details to TSR merely to register as unnecessary given that the actual payment for a successful bid is direct to the auctioneer. On TSR FAQs sentences that start with 'don't worry' I find amateurish, but that's just me. On the strength of my experience and adverse comments on TrustPilot I am not going to buy shares in ATG. The adverse comments on TP are mostly from experienced buyers who are critical of the increase in buyer's premium. ATG's stock response is to justify the increase in terms of expenditure on improving the platform, etc but why should buyers be expected to pay for that. Also, as anyone can browse TSR without registering and then visit the auctioneers' sites direct and register with that particular auctioneer there doesn't seem to be any point in going via ATG.

Currently, ATG is capitalised at £958M which seems a lot for a low barriers for entry business. Also it is not really a business - except in the context of helping in exchange for money - because really all ATG is doing is latching onto other businesses (ie, auction houses) that are doing all the hard work and via the internet are probably more than capable of building substantial mailing lists of prospective buyers without having to add more to buyer costs via the premium.
