lauders: As it is fun I will go with 48p. When you take into account the talent pool that is being put in place here (see below and previous post to key players at BIDS) you can see that the potential is great just needs the highlighted parts below to fall into place too or someone much bigger decide to take out BIDS first as per Grapeshot. The gaming industry is almost on a par with Hollywood, with the largest selling game, GTA-V hitting $2.2bn in worldwide sales compared with the largest worldwide grossing movie, Avatar which generated $2.7bn at the box office. Note, that doesn’t include DVD, blue ray sales or broadcasting income, but you get the picture; the potential revenues that could be generated from in-game advertising are huge, particularly when you consider the potential of virtual reality moving forward. At the current share price of 31p, Bidstack is valued at around £75m. That’s a plentiful valuation for a company without a clear view of revenue numbers, but if Bidstack can successfully build and retain a first mover advantage in this new branch of the sector, it could prove to be justified. The company appears to be doing everything it can to give it the best chance, having already made a number of high-profile appointments boasting senior experience at companies like Disney, Spotify, and Sega. Today Bidstack has announced it has appointed Derek Wise as a Non-Executive Director. Derek is a highly experienced software technologist who was previously the Chief Technology Officer of Grapeshot. At the firm, David took over software development, product, support and operations globally to reorganize and grow the group. Within 12 months of him joining, Grapeshot’s revenues grew by 160pc and the team expanded from 120 to over 250 personnel. Bidstack highlights that David was responsible for pitching Grapeshot to Oracle who subsequently acquired Grapeshot in August 2018 for an estimated $400m. Clear visible revenue growth is essential if Bidstack is to swiftly justify and build on its current valuation and this appointment certainly appears to be targeting that goal. James Draper, CEO of Bidstack, commented, “Given the attractiveness of our technical offering we have been looking to add a Board member who has had experience of building and scaling borderless enterprise technology which has then been acquired by a major Silicon Valley player. “Derek’s technical background at the highest level of gaming, coupled with his intimate knowledge of the contextual understanding of data, is a perfect blend for us and his work as CTO of Grapeshot eventually led to the its acquisition by Oracle. “Derek has already been a fantastic sounding wall for our management team and I’m sure that his insight will help Bidstack to accelerate our growth further over the coming years.” Https://www.valuethemarkets.com/2019/07/02/bidstack-looks-to-facilitate-the-scaling-up-of-operations-with-new-addition-to-board-bids/

stoaty1: Hamid, wouldn't waste your time responding to the negatively niggled niggle. Bids, to him is overhyped overpriced nonsense, and he will no doubt believe the $75billion spend on in game advertising a mirage. Niggle old love you may have missed the initial Bids price, but it is not too late. If not, when it goes up further in price over the weeks and months you are going to be even more niggled niggle!

hamidahamida: Bidstack Group (LSE:BIDS) has been one of the darlings of AIM so far this year, enjoying a meteoric rise from around 4.5p in January to an intraday high of 42p last month. And it's no wonder why; blending unobtrusive adverts into video games is set to revolutionise the gaming industry.Just as services such as Spotify utilise a combination of subscription and advertising to generate revenues, it's logical video games should incorporate in-game advertising. The fact an advert could be anything from a virtual billboard in an open-world game to a video banner by the edge of the pitch in a football match simulation makes it possible to place targeted adverts in front of players with no effect on gameplay.Gamers have played online for some time, but like music and video entertainment before it, the future of video game delivery is streaming and Bidstack is also focussing on this relatively new shift for the industry.The gaming industry is almost on a par with Hollywood, with the largest selling game, GTA-V hitting $2.2bn in worldwide sales compared with the largest worldwide grossing movie, Avatar which generated $2.7bn at the box office. Note, that doesn't include DVD, blue ray sales or broadcasting income, but you get the picture; the potential revenues that could be generated from in-game advertising are huge, particularly when you consider the potential of virtual reality moving forward.At the current share price of 31p, Bidstack is valued at around £75m.

moneygenxyz: As most of us here were in before the ramp started, I’m quite happy that they did ramp and then raise. It equates to a lower dilution and a business with a stronger balance sheet. Could BIDS have timed it better? Probably not because who can time these things? And I would bet that the cash raised went into some of the people that came on board which resulted in a higher share price. Overall I think the management team are doing a grand job and my faith remains stronger than ever. Remember, this is the first company ever to list after raising money on Crowdcube. No small feat and shows how driven the team is in maximising shareholder value whilst allowing for efficient fundraising to concentrate on the business. If you fall for the ramps then expect to burn, if you laugh as the share price falls back to reasonable levels then you are equally foolish and very boring. The potential is all that matters if you are invested.

arhaych: Article is behind a paywall (well, registration...) so I've copied and pasted below: I don’t generally invest in earlier stage tech companies due to the risk of failure, but I have been following the Bidstack Group (BIDS) story with interest. I’m fully aware that early stage companies in this sector often trade at a large premium to their valuation on paper, as the value is all about future potential and growth and there are examples out there of outfits that started out as small companies before seeing their technology really take off and are now worth a fortune. But this is rare and far more fail and ultimately end up worthless. It is still far too early to tell which category Bidstack will ultimately end up in, but I do believe that an awful lot of future potential is now being priced into a market valuation of more than £63 million, and I’d be very wary of putting money in at such a racey valuation. It is going to have to perform exceptionally well to show that it can grow into that, let alone being worth more and therefore providing upside for investors coming onboard now. Basically, Bidstack owns technology which enables in-game advertising and it already has tie-ups with some of the big names in the gaming industry, but it still needs to prove that it can make the revenue model work and grow at a sufficient rate. I would also be concerned about competition springing up from other companies developing their own technology to provide a similar service – or even the gaming companies eventually cutting out the middle man and directly tapping into this source of revenue. Bidstack has only been listed on AIM for a short period of time, following a reverse takeover last September when it also raised £3.5 million at a share price of 6p, and it doesn’t exactly have the greatest history. Prior to renaming itself Kin Group in May 2017, it was known as Fitbug, which was a company that I was bearish on and its fitness tracking device ultimately failed and the share price collapsed. To be fair, Bidstack CEO James Draper, who owns more than 17% of the shares, and his team weren’t involved in the Fitbug fiasco, but it does serve of a reminder of how quickly the value of these types of outfits can drop if things do go wrong. There is little point looking at the financials as, as you would expect for a company of this type, at this stage they show a hefty net loss, although a significant chunk of that is as a result of the acquisition. The figures over the next couple of years will give a far better indication of whether or not the company is achieving the level of growth that is needed to support its valuation and further upside potential. Recently it raised £5 million at a price of 12.5p and since then the share price has rocketed up to more than 26p, but I would expect that some of the placees will soon be looking to cash in on a profit of more than 100%. The shares currently have momentum behind it and the price may go higher in the absence of any news that is perceived as negative, but I can’t see any value in buying at the 26p area and would suggest that the risk versus reward isn’t in your favour at this price point, so for me it is a sell/avoid until such point as it can show that it is likely to justify such a high valuation.

melody9999: Agree Stoaty. And don't think you can blame the management for not raising money when the share price was in the high teens. Firstly that may have been their intention Secondly our BOD cannot guess the future share price any more than we can. If the share price had been 25p now and a raise had then been announced at 17.5p, everyone would have been complaining about the discount. Thirdly any comment until (and if) a placing comes and the price announced is speculation in any case. FWIW, my view is that, as the company is not cash distressed the placing price (if it goes ahead) will be higher rather than lower.....particularly as I suspect that conversations would have taken place when the share price was higher than it is now. Our BOD will take a view based on the dilution and based on the benefit that they perceive the extra funds will bring. When the placing is announced, we will find out the dilution but we will have to trust our BOD on the ensuing benefits. But then if you don't trust your BOD, you should not be invested!

dibbs: One thing's for sure it's certainly got busier on the BIDS BB recently! In my opinion BIDS is a very promising company with lots of potential but with that there still comes much execution risk in the following months and years to successfully develop and grow the business, it's revenue and profits. Investor sentiment has certainly got behind BIDS since the start of the year with the shares are up four fold in as many months. With this rapid rise, which I'm sure exceeded the directors best hopes came an opportunity to raise funds at what I'm sure will be at a level far above the share price just 4 months ago! Most growth companies would grab such an opportunity with both hands because growth uses cash so take it when you can. At risk of upsetting a few here, the downside of this fund raising is a short term pull back which for those who bought in at 20p or above is a bit painful. I think some were perhaps getting a little too used to daily price rises and as is often the case the fall triggered stops and probably even margin calls for those with SB positions. As has been mentioned earlier I think BIDS look to be making some shrew moves with recent appointments in advisory and non Exec roles. The actual price of the fundraising will be interesting to know. It's hardly the case BIDS are desperate for cash and if large investors want a large lump of stock they often can't buy in the open market so they will have to pay a decent price. Interesting times ahead. Dibbs

marketgem: Have you lost the plot? The kin holders came in at 5p, IPO holder's at 6p, the legacy holders are what held the BIDS share price back, its never been higher than 7p never mind £8. You've got the wrong share mate.
