NickB Yes, the market is down though compared with Spanish Flu which infected some 350M people of which some 75M+ died, coronavirus is serious but not yet of the same order. It is down but not to the same extent as BIRD which has experienced a fall in the last month (not from the highest point which occurred more recently) of over 4x the AIM average. The number of sales is comparatively small compared with the number of shares now in issue but the reason for the fall is presumably the lack of buyers even at the lower prices. Miton may want to sit tight but they will have recent examples of what happens to funds invested in illiquid, underperforming stocks in mind as will the regulators which have been heavily criticised for inaction. A turnaround will only come when BIRD publishes regular news of wins. It doesn't have to be on a full blown RNS scale but that would be very welcome. The absence of such copy just means that the prudent assumption is that the concentration on OEMs has drained resource away from winning smaller deals of, say, £50K-£75K and that there is actually nothing to report. The recent advert for a Strategic Account Director for the UK and Europe could be construed as confirmatory evidence that sales on our door step are disappointing. I'm hanging on in the hope that BIRD will deliver something substantial in April.

IM wouldn’t hint and tease if he had any doubts. The man is a professional and wouldn’t want to tarnish his reputation. For all we know a Twitter deal is on the cards. Could takes months with POC etc. Who knows.

I hear one of the Technical sales executive champions of virtualisation video editing in the Cloud is complaining of the cost that the likes of AWS and Azure are charging. Blackbird way of working does not have that overhead cost😀

Which is why they shouldn't have been dangling deals since Nov 18 to investors. Again - I didn't have meetings with non-shareholders and smile as I mentioned 7 figure deals. I also didn't mention major launchers of the BIRD player at major industry events etc.

bonio How do you know it’s failing to deliver? These deals don’t happen overnight

Cloud sales guys can now point to operation resilience not having to rely on people needing to get to work places as an advantage of Cloud editing/remote working. Sustainable green working is also becoming a hot topic in media industry All good for us

Don't worry - I am looking forwards. It is the company that has dug this hole for itself with multiple statements and nudges and winks it is failing, so far, to deliver on. I didn't make IM tweet from the USA outside various companiies/stands.

bonio You are looking backwards some of us are looking forwards into a high growth market. You seem very stressed this week and questioning your investment, understandable in this global sell off but it’ll pass.

Bonio. IM knows more than you. We’re quickly growing as a business and have secured some key clients over the last 12 months, as a result, we’re looking to hire a Strategic Account Director at Blackbird plc. We’re looking for someone with a history of relationships with broadcasters, sports rights holders and live production companies. The opportunity for somebody to come in and be part of the next stage of our fast-growth is an exciting challenge. If you know of anyone who would fit this role, please share with them.

Blackbird allows working from home, not a bad thing in the current environment. In fact a real positive!

Cabi - the revenue is about £1m. The sales costs to revenue ratio must be horrific. None puts out a sales ad and says their company isn't expanding,

Bonio. The sales team are all still there and active on LinkedIn. Looks like they are expanding. Maybe they are being inundated with enquires, and need an extra pair of hands. With the fears of Coronavirus firms are looking for a back up so they don’t need to send large teams abroad.

One way of looking at it bonio. Depends on how you see the industry going I guess😀

I assume it is a replacement for the same old roles. In the same way they sacked all of Aziz's team and then rehired.

They advertise the same jobs every 6 months. My guess is either they have issues with staff retention, due to the lack of new deals, or they simply hire poorly. I agree - they should be able to staff that from current resources.

Chris Have you seen the state of the markets? The fall has got nothing to do with Blackbird. I’m sure Miton will understand that!

Of course Miton's support is open ended. They love a discounted placing as it means they just get more of the company at our expense. As they have £7m to £8m in the bank - they won't care if there are no deals until April.

With the share price dropping below the recent issue price Miton and others will be feeling some pain and if they feel pain they will be making it plain to the BoD that their support is not open ended. Running without any wins until April is not a course that recommends itself if they have an alternative.
