For someone not invested you spend a lot of time and energy and get pretty angry when people don't agree with you ... Why not go for a beer in the sunshine and listen to a podcast or two

Oh you boys are out in force today ... Why do they need a new joint broker indeed ? (Why did they really pull out of that Triton deal? hmmm ) Welcome Ken Funny how the KPIs are better than industry rate and revs increasing yet in your mind the website (which is easily fixed if what you said was actually an issue (clearly not) and they were bothered) is the big problem ... yawn Distribution via apple and now spotify and google, if only there were bigger outlets ...

This will need more funding. Dilution guaranteed.

Back from suspension which was quite an achievement on its own, but now share price has fallen well below the 3p which was funding price. All I see is a bucket load of promises on which investors can either believe or not. Given their track record of constantly broken promises, Boom is VERY HIGH risk investment. Now rather than listen to the ramping tripe that RRB post & some other idiots on here, I say do your figures. T/O, earnings & most of all when you come to your conclusion, see if it is any where near Boom's Mrk Cap.

BuggyI agree. I think RP has an ego & it could get in the way of BOOMs success. Also remember the plan was for the Triton team to run the new larger group not RP. So again, his ego would have taken a knock & raise doubts the chairman & others did not want leading the show.

There was no naming, just implying it was not all his doing. If you know what occurred then maybe your views would be different. If you are invested and believe what you write then I would sell up if I was you. Your call, but you clearly do not the facts and your speculation just confirms that.

Rachelrileysbra, I have no doubt that the sticking point was probably valuation. Irrespective of who led the negotiation, RP is the CEO and the buck stops with him. Even if a member of his team dropped the ball , a good team lead do not hang them out to dry. they are supposed to be a team and if they are not functioning as such them we are in trouble. RP does not even have to come out and say that he himself failed but just an admission that audioboom made a miss-step without absolving himself from the collective responsibility. If the deal has succeeded will RP have been equally eager to point out that all the credit is due to xx and he had nothing to do with it? I doubt it. Several deals that has been announced over the last few weeks, I have not seen any mention of the persons who negotiated them hence who we should accredit the success. If RP is willing to share the credit and go on podcast to trumpet audioboom's achievement's, ( without mentioning if he had a part in the negotiation), then to start distancing himself when it goes pear shaped is not the sign of a good leader. You can't take collective credit but try to absolve yourself from collective responsibility when it suits you..smacks of egotism and poor leadership That is just my view, others may believe if makes sense to name and shame a member of your team. Once you have done that however you will no longer have a team as those you blamed will be waiting for you to fail and would withhold active support.

Buggy - 1 - The II had an issue with the Triton valuation, not BOOM 2 - The deal was run by Chairman and RP was very much on the sidelines for the main part - Hence why he is fuming The deal was not straight forward and I suspect there are a few things occurring that cannot be communicated

Tewkesbury, thanks for the link. Listened to above CEO interview, there are a lot of positives but also the interview has raised a lot of concerns for me if you look behind the words. 1. The Triton deal was put to over 100 institutions at both sides of the pond and they did not think it was a great idea. >>> Somehow I fail to believe that over 100 institutions were wrong and only Audioboom management knew a good deal when they saw it. 2. the interview did not paint the CEO in a good light. Instead of accepting responsibility as the CEO, ( the buck stops at his desk), it appears as if he tries to make excuses and blame others...it was not my fault honest I did everything correctly but others let me down. Asked why the Triton deal did not go ahead, a two sentence answer I would have thought. He spends time waffling round the issue, proceeding to give an account of how he did everything that could have been expected of him before finally arriving at the core answer which is that out of over 125 institutions the deal was presented to, most did not see it as a good deal. In between these waffling a few of these snippets did not present our CEO as a good leader who can lead a team. [ There seems to be an implied me and them instead of us as a team] '.... I presented to about 7 institutions in UK and they seemed positive and put in numbers against their intent. We brought in Zeus and Allen capital who after reconstructing the presentation, this was taken to the institutions again ...my presence was not needed at that presentation hence this was led by other management. the institutions decided not to invest bar one.' Reading between the lines: what value did the fact that he was not involved in this further presentation serve, apart from ...It was not my fault. If that was not his intent then what value does it serve to inform us that he was not involved in this presentation? If it was material to highlight the fact that he was not involved in the second presentation .. then it implies that the result may have been different if he was at the presentation? Even if this is the case, a good team leader would not be hanging out your team to dry in public as it will lead to friction within the board. My reading of the whole debacle is that at initial presentation which was done by BOOM using their presentation pack, the 7 institutions in UK may have thought that in principle this was a good idea. Once they brought in Zeus as well as their Broker Allen Capital and the numbers were added to the presentation, most of the 7institutions decided that it was too rich for their blood. Hocking this now to another 125+ institutional investors both home and abroad found the same response.. not a good deal. Anyway we are where we are, but I now worry about the leadership capabilities of our CEO.

Google just released its podcast app which will increase the Android share of the market. Doubling revs in medium term according to reports.

Interview with RP on 14/6/2018 (2 min 2 sec onwards): hTTps://audioboom.com/posts/6896692-audioboom-boom-and-chris-bailey-on-rdsb-bt-a-rr-pzc-wine He says BOOM would have been cash flow positive by now if not for the £1.6m arrangement costs associated with the recently aborted takeover of Trident but which they will have recovered from by Q4. He now expects BOOM to be cash flow positive in early 2019. "Still on course for 100% growth this year" which he says is 4x the industry rate of growth. He says they can now very accurately forecast revenues, etc. "Double digit" revenue this year means at least £11m. They have reduced internal costs and will be getting more revenues. 50% - 60% gross margin on their own content, which is very good. So basically BOOM about to be cash flow positive and experiencing rapid growth.

I agree with Buggy's sentiments ….cash is king and my concern with Boom is that they are paying out on each content deal in order to get future revenue share. If the revenues do not flow as anticipated then the cash runs out!

The arrangement with Spotify and other progress will significantly increase revenues.

Hottingup, I am not sure increased revenue is the key factor. High revenue does not make a business else companies like woolworths will not have gone under.. they were turning over billions. What make a business is the difference between revenue and operating expense... that thing called profit. a business generates profit and is sustainable. Anyone can run a money sink that will keep on increasing revenue but eventually you will run out of money and go bust. there is something called operating cost and your revenue needs to be able to cover that, or for growth company show that there is a path to that self sustaining operation where your income can cover your out going. I am not sure if BOOM has more than another 2 cash raise still left in it. There comes a time when investors will no longer put money in because you have not demonstrated that you have or can run a viable business.

The main thing is that revenues continue to increase and will be up again this year.

The question is how much are they paying for all these deals and how much will go through to the bottom line? Announcing deals is one thing , anyone can do that, what is still to be demonstrated is if these are good deals or are they similar to the half baked idea to buy Triton. For example the deal with F1 means that audio boom pays a fixed sum for each upload then revenue share. No one know what the revenue share percentage is. Even if it is 50/50,then Audioboom's revenue share has to be greater than their production cost plus whatever they paid upfront for each upload before they can make a dime from the deal. In other words no one can say if this is a good deal or not until the numbers are in. Currently the only person making money from the deal is F1 who will have to be paid a guaranteed fee upfront before each upload while audio boom assumes the production cost. That same logic applies to other deals since Audio boom are now paying to buy in contents before revenue sharing at unspecified percentage. This may in part be one of the reasons why the KPI seem to be increasing at tremendous rate, but with increasing cost of sales and the gap to profits seem to be getting wider. For each of these deals audio boom picks up the production cost meaning any money from revenue sharing needs to cover al these cost of production and fees before anything gets to the bottom line. The PR from the company is about growing KPI, growth in KPI does not mean much unless it translates to increase profits. Without KPI translating to money getting into the bottom line, it becomes meaningless as anyone can buy in increase KPI by paying over the odds to podcast owners and distribution mediums. DISCLAIMER: I am invested, but not adding nor reducing till I see if all these deals makes a contribution to the bottom line or if it is just a panicked deal made from a position of weakness. (Grabbing at every flotsam and hopping that is keeps us afloat?) Next set of results will provide a clear indication.. if TO is going up but it is not making any dent on the cost of operation then we are paying out more on these deals that is coming in. Above are purely my views and are not intended as an investment advice. DYOR.
