prayforprofit: Here's a crazy idea.. Don't rise to it? You know he's deliberately trying to get a reaction from you so don't give him the satisfaction. I know Bango intimately well and have made a lot of money over the years. Hopefully the inevitably positive half year results will be reflected in the share price!

ic777: Bango Share price appears rather manipulated...short sellers will short right at the open and move the price down at the open...and then gradually buy back over the day (without moving the price)...this could start to work the other way if Bango reports good 1H though. But I guess this happens to alot of AIM stocks.

ic777: Can't quite understand share price movements sometimes...I will be afraid when insiders sell, followed by major shareholders...when Bango went below 40 pence in 2016, I thought it was way too cheap....when Bango went above 280 pence in 2017 it was too frothy (though I think it will revisit that at some point). Fundamentals did not change that much to justify these movements in share price...this time round is probably because Bango is still not making money, coupled together with uncertainties over BREXIT, illiquidity, and people like Chimers playing down the share price...but eventually the Truth will shine...if Bango reports 1H cash flow breakeven at the next update, the share price will go above 200 pence.

mrnumpty: Regarding the share price carnage . I've just looked at the share price graphs for what have , until recently , been some stock market darlings , all of which suffered badly in the recent rout , but which have started to bounce back . They are all much bigger than Bango , but the fact that Gooch and Housego , Burford Capital and Games Workshop all started to recover a week or two ago gives some grounds for optimism . No doubt a major cause of the share price collapse in Bango is that large amounts of shares are held by small-cap funds and by directors , meaning that there is only a small free float of shares . Although I know nothing of the dark art of interpreting share price graphs , is it not probable that the market makers have allowed the price to drop to the psychologically important level of £ 1.00 ? Does the price start to recover as new shareholders see this as a bargain price , or does desperation continue ? However , the underlying story and the Company remain exactly the same as only a couple of months ago . I agree with Alangrifbang about the effect of Brexit and that it will only be when this is resolved ( if ever ? ) that we can hope for a recovery . When at the point of utmost despair regarding a share price , I am faced with the choice of either selling at a loss or sending an e-mail to the Company . As I've just e-mailed Bango with my woes , imploring them to actually do something , it would be nice to imagine that we are now at the nadir ! Whilst no fan whatsoever of the ubiquitous " chimers " , I too am not highly enamoured of Simon Thomson's tips .

chimers: Too late.... IC ST pump... Shareholders in Aim-traded Bango (BGO:110p), a provider of a state-of-the-art mobile payment platform enabling smartphone users to charge purchases made in app stores straight to their mobile phone account, have endured a rollercoaster ride since I first advised buying the shares, at 93p, two years ago ('Bang on the money', 26 September 2016). Having almost trebled in value to 266p by January this year, the share price has headed south since. True, the IPO of larger rival Boku (BKU:143p) at the end of 2017 may have seen some investors bank their hefty profits on Bango’s shares with a view to capitalising on Boku’s high growth potential and the need for Aim-traded tracker funds to buy its shares. However, that factor alone can only explain part of the de-rating in Bango’s shares. A greater factor was probably a change in investor sentiment following Bango’s small acquisition of Audiens, a developer of a cloud-based platform that collects and analyses valuable consumer data at the end of January this year ('Six small-cap plays', 22 January 2018). It made commercial sense for Bango to acquire the business, part-funded by the proceeds of a £5m placing, as it has accelerated the company’s own data strategy and enabled its customers and advertisers to market more efficiently. It also means that Bango has been able to target a new revenue stream from monetising this valuable data. However, the short-term cost of investment in accelerating the data strategy is that Bango’s cash profitability will be less this year than analysts were anticipating at the start of the year, albeit the upside in 2019 is greater too. To put this into perspective, back in March analysts at house broker Cenkos Securities were expecting the exit run rate of end user spend (EUS) processed through Bango’s payment platform to end this year at £915m (they still do by the way) to deliver gross profits of £9.3m and a cash profit of £2.8m. However, to reflect the greater investment in its data strategy Cenkos’ 2018 gross profit estimates were subsequently trimmed over the summer to £7.5m to produce a cash profit of £1m. The flip side is that because the £35m investment in Bango’s platform has already been made, and tested to process in excess of £5bn of transactions a year, then a high proportion of the forecast increase in gross profit in 2019 drops straight down to the bottom line given the operational gearing of the business. As a result Cenkos expects gross profit to be £15.3m in 2019 (£1.5m higher than it had been forecasting in March 2018 and double this year’s forecast outcome) and predicts Bango will deliver a 2019 cash profit of £8.4m. Cenkos 2019 pre-tax profit estimate of £5.6m is higher too as are analysts’ end 2019 annualised exit EUS run rate forecast of £1.97bn. That’s hardly a sign of a company’s prospects going into reverse. Moreover, with operational costs held in check, a high proportion of cash profit estimates of £8.4m in 2019 will be converted into cash, which is why net funds are forecast to more than double to £12.3m – a sum worth 17.5p a share – by the end of 2019. Contracts in pipeline have potential to be transformational Of course, there is execution risk and Bango needs to land some of the massive contracts in its near-term pipeline. Bearing this in mind, when I interviewed chief executive Ray Anderson at the time of the interim results four weeks ago (‘Bango’s $4bn contract pipeline’, 18 September 2018), he revealed that Bango’s “nearest to arrival pipeline of EUS is worth $4bn [most contracts are in the range between $100m and $400m (£303m), and a couple are over $1bn] and has been in principle approved by clients internally with technical due diligence complete.” Clearly, if the company lands even half of these massive contracts in the coming months then it will significantly de-risk the aforementioned 2019 revenue and pre-tax profit estimates. Bearing in mind the need for Bango to land these contracts, let’s not forget that it is bang on course to achieve house broker Cenkos Securities' EUS target of £592m for the full year, up from £220m in the first half of 2018, and £271m for the whole of 2017, so has a track record of converting its pipeline that has delivered such impressive growth rates. Furthermore, if these contracts are landed it is likely to send Bango’s share price rocketing. That’s because at the current share price of 113p the company’s £77m market capitalisation implies an end 2019 enterprise value of £65m and a cash-adjusted 2019 PE ratio of 11.5 based on Bango delivering basic EPS of 8.1p. It’s a massive valuation discrepancy to larger rival Boku, which my colleague Harriet Clarfelt tipped last Thursday (‘Merci Boku’, 18 October 2018). At the current share price of 143p, Boku has a market valuation of £306.3m. Analysts at Peel Hunt expect Boku to end 2019 with net cash of $36.9m (a sum worth 13p a share based on 214.2m shares in issue and converted at the current sterling:US dollar exchange rate) implying Boku’s shares are trading on a cash-adjusted 2019 PE ratio of 68 based on the company delivering EPS of 2.5c (1.9p). Boku’s cash-adjusted 2020 PE ratio is 32 based on EPS doubling in 2020 to 4.9c and net funds building to $58m, or 21p a share. I would also flag up that Boku’s shares have started to recover some of this month’s fall – at one point its share price fell from 184p to 128p in less than a week during the market rout – as bargain hunters have emerged. The fact the Bango’s share price has yet to recover is undoubtedly down to the announcement that finance director Rachel Elias-Jones is leaving the company. I can reveal that she has been poached by artificial intelligence group Darktrace, having worked for Bango for four years and the last two as finance director. This has been taken badly by the market which is another reason Bango’s share price has sagged. However, an interim chief finance officer has already been appointed, Carolyn Rand. Her previous appointments include group finance, treasury and financial director roles at medical technology group Smith & Nephew (SN.), and technology companies Zinwave and Isogenica. She will remain in place until a full-time replacement is appointed. Clearly, the timing is not ideal, but I can confirm that financial guidance from Bango has not changed since the interim results and the company continues to work on landing its $4bn near-term pipeline of opportunities. Ultimately, it’s the sales and marketing teams that will convert deals in the pipeline, as they have been doing so successfully for the past four years. I am also encouraged by comments from Mr Anderson who points out that Bango rarely faces competition from larger rival Boku in the markets they address, suggesting space for both fast-growing operators. It’s worth pointing out that Bango has valuable relationships with Google and Amazon, and the strategy in place to monetise data capture can only be positive to winning new business. It is also highly operationally geared to rising EUS. Bottom line The bottom line is that the sell-off in small-cap companies has been pretty indiscriminate this month – a fortnight ago I noted that the share prices of over 500 companies on the London Stock Exchange had fallen by over 5 per cent intra-day at one point. And it's not just small-caps. Take artificial intelligence software company Blue Prism as an example. The share price of the £1bn market value company is off 43 per cent in the past six weeks. This is creating bargains and I feel that Bango is one of them. I also note that with the share price back at the 107.5p intra-day low hit earlier this month and the shares in heavily oversold territory, the 14-day relative strength indicator (RSI) is showing a higher reading now than on the 11 October, suggesting that positive divergence is emerging on the chart. So, with newsflow on contract wins in the coming months set to instil confidence in Bango achieving Cenkos’ 2019 numbers, and the company been seriously undervalued if it achieves those forecasts, then I still expect a positive outcome here despite the erosion of the hefty paper gains previously made on this investment. Buy.

BANGO PLC Placing and Acquisition - Acquisition of Audiens to accelerate data monetization business - Placing of £5 million to fund Acquisition - Expected to add to group Revenue immediately and boost 2019 profit - Benefits for Bango Customers and mobile operator partners Bango plc (AIM: BGO) ("Bango"), the mobile payments company, announces a placing of 2,777,778 new ordinary shares (the "Placing Shares") at a price of 180 pence per share (the "Placing Price") to raise £5 million (the "Placing"). In addition, Bango announces that it has acquired 98.45 per cent. of Audiens SRL ("Audiens"), the data management subsidiary of Digitouch S.p.A (DGT:Borsa Italiana) ("Digitouch"), from Digitouch, Marko Maras, Sodapao S.R.L., My Draco S.R.L. and Fabrizio Ampollini (together the "Sellers") (the "Acquisition"). The Acquisition is not conditional on admission of the Placing Shares to the AIM market. The Placing and Acquisition are intended to enable Bango to capitalize on demand for the valuable data it generates through its existing operations and to enable the Bango Platform to provide additional value to the rapidly-growing mobile advertising market. In addition to the Placing, Bango also announces that Ray Anderson and Anil Malhotra, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Marketing Officer of Bango respectively have indicated their intention to subscribe for up to a total of £20,000 of new shares at a price no less than the Placing Price. Acquisition of Audiens The consideration for the Acquisition comprises of €1.48m (£1.3m) in cash, to be paid immediately, €0.63m (£0.55m) which will be paid to Digitouch for provision of shared services for up to 12 months from the date of the Acquisition, 521,803 Bango ordinary shares which have been issued at the Placing Price (the "Consideration Shares") and the grant of 738,399 warrants over Bango ordinary shares exercisable for a period of 10 years at the Placing Price. The remaining 1.55 per cent. of Audiens is retained by Marko Maras, a co-founder of Audiens (the "Maras Shares"). Bango has entered into an agreement with Mr Maras relating to the Maras Shares (the "Option Agreement"), pursuant to which additional consideration may become payable as part of a two year incentive plan to maximize the success of Audiens as part of Bango. Further information on the Option Agreement is set out below. The net proceeds of the Placing will be used to fund the Acquisition, to integrate the Audiens technology with the industry leading Bango Platform and to support the development and marketing of the emerging Bango mobile data monetization business. Application has been made to the London Stock Exchange plc for the Placing Shares and Consideration Shares (together, the "New Ordinary Shares") to be admitted to trading on AIM. It is expected that the Placing will become unconditional, that admission to AIM will become effective and that dealings will commence on 29 January 2018. Commenting on the Acquisition and the Placing, Bango CEO, Ray Anderson said: "The acquisition of Audiens accelerates the development of the Bango data monetization business and opens the door to exciting new additional revenue streams from the Bango platform. Mobile operators are eager to find new ways to improve their monetization of data - in ways that respect user privacy and comply with regulations. Merchants want to grow sales faster and reach new customers more efficiently. The combined platform will provide customer insights to merchants, advertising partners, and mobile network operators, to drive consumer engagement and revenue. The Audiens team has developed a powerful data monetization product that is gaining rapid customer traction and is being integrated with industry leaders. The technology and relationships that Audiens brings will enable Bango customers to grow faster than originally planned. Bango Boost already monetizes data by delivering significant sales growth for merchants. With Audiens technology, Bango can now capitalise on the demand for data to enable more effective marketing, bringing additional revenue and scale to Bango, as mobile cements its place at the centre of global commerce." Reasons for the Acquisition Bango is the payment platform chosen by the world's most influential companies to grow their sales faster in the age of connected commerce. Working with global stores including Google, Amazon, and Microsoft, Bango has become the industry standard mobile commerce platform, helping people make payments quickly and conveniently. Through its innovative technology platform and relationships with over 100 network operators, Bango technology increases sales success and provides unique insights derived from the pooled data and shared knowledge of the platform. Since 2016, Bango has been developing technology to deliver additional insights from data accessible using the Bango Platform. These insights are used by merchants to drive increased sales and improve marketing effectiveness. Over more than two years, Audiens has developed a cloud based data platform that collects, organises and analyses data, building customized audience segments and making these available to advertisers. Advertisers can map more accurately to relevant users based on their activities, enabling data-driven decision making. The Audiens team has extensive domain expertise and market experience. Bango believes that the Audiens technology complements and accelerates the Bango data strategy by 12-18 months, enabling Bango customers and other advertisers to improve marketing effectiveness. This acquisition will also enable mobile operators that partner with Bango to more efficiently and successfully monetize valuable consumer data. The directors of Bango believe there are substantial market and product synergies from this deal. The integrated platform will provide a tested, trusted, secure and safe route to market for valuable data accessible through the Bango Platform. Bango partners will benefit from the deep data insights provided from the platform to monetize better through higher sales success and improved marketing conversion. Over the last two years, Bango has delivered strong growth in its core business. As announced on 8 January 2018, Bango continues to focus its product development, sales and marketing efforts on enhancing the Bango Platform and on growing transactions through the Bango Platform for its customers. The total End User Spend (EUS) for 2017 was £271m compared to £132m for 2016 with a run rate of over £400m at the end of the year. Bango expects continued strong EUS growth and that revenue from its existing core Bango Platform business to continue to grow throughout 2018 and beyond. In 2018 Bango expects approximately £1m of additional revenue and no impact on expected profitability as a result of the Acquisition. Audiens reported unaudited gross profit of €0.24m (£0.22m) and a net loss of €0.19m (£0.16m) for 2017. Bango expects that the integration of Audiens technology will make a contribution to profitability from 2019 onwards, and that synergies will drive additional EUS from the existing Bango business. Benefits for Bango customers and partners Mobile operators will be able to expand their use of the Bango Platform to offer valuable data to advertisers, where they choose to do so, securely and safely, and in compliance with relevant regulations. Audiens already does this for two mobile operators. Merchants using the Bango Platform to collect payments and developers distributing through Bango payment enabled App Stores will be able to better target their advertising to optimize sales and improve marketing efficiency. They will do this either directly or through advertising agencies. The Audiens technology delivers data into the trading desks used by advertisers and marketing agencies, providing broad global availability without the need for global sales and marketing teams. Bango has established a resale and licensing agreement with Digitouch to use the Audiens technology, and expects this partnership to accelerate the early success already achieved. The Option Agreement After the acquisition, Marko Maras will head the Audiens business at Bango with rewards linked to achievement of specific revenue objectives and overhead control. As noted above, as part of the terms of the Acquisition, Bango has entered into the Option Agreement with Mr Maras relating to the Maras Shares. Under the terms of the Option Agreement, Bango can call upon Mr Maras to sell these shares to Bango in certain circumstances (the "Call Option") and Mr Maras can call upon Bango to purchase these shares in certain circumstances (the "Put Option"). The final date by which either the Put Option or the Call Option must have been exercised is 28 February 2020. On exercise of either the Put Option or the Call Option, Mr Maras may be entitled to payment for the Maras Shares calculated at €0.95m (£0.83m) (based on the Placing Price), payable by Bango (the "Additional Consideration") subject to certain conditions including the achievement of specific revenue targets by Audiens. The Additional Consideration that may be payable varies depending on the Bango share price at the time of exercise of either the Put Option or the Call Option. The Additional Consideration payable will reduce as the Bango share price rises but could increase, on a sliding scale to a maximum of €1.38m (£1.2m), should the revenue objectives be met but the Bango share price falls below the Placing Price at that point. If, on or before 28 February 2020, Audiens, directly or indirectly is the subject of a further sale by Bango, or should Bango be acquired and a portion of the proceeds be specifically attributed to Audiens, further consideration is payable to Mr Maras. The further consideration would be for an amount that is up to 20 per cent. of any sale proceeds receivable by Bango that are directly attributable to the sale of Audiens after deducting the total consideration (including the value of Bango shares and warrants at the point of such event) paid by Bango for the Acquisition. Any such further consideration payable to Mr Maras is capped at an amount equal to €50 million, which amount would only be reached if the sale proceeds attributable to Audiens were €250 million more than the value of the total consideration paid by Bango for the Acquisition.
