chriscallen: Earlier this year we saw: 11 March 2020, Seattle and London – Blackbird plc (AIM: BIRD) today announced that it will showcase ultra-efficient video editing in the cloud at the Amazon Web Services (AWS) booth at NAB 2020. Webinar: Cloud video editing and publishing on AWS Fast – easy – scalable – remote – cost effective. To see Blackbird in action on AWS on 2nd July please click the webinar you prefer below and… 15 July 2020 Blackbird has been invited by Amazon Web Services (AWS) to participate at its much anticipated Media Solutions Webcast Series. We will showcase the efficiency benefits of Blackbird’s powerful cloud video editing and publishing capabilities, which enable… Yet now they seem to have disappeared from view. Perhaps they are overwhelmed with enquiries?
deirjon: Thanks Invest360 for the link which I hadn't seen till now seen. Apparently I'm not a "proper" investor. SSB, what I fail to understand is why you believe some shareholders need protection. From what? Ripping up your harvest? How is that going to happen? Do you really think that a few rampers / traders can ultimately destroy the share price of a company of this calibre, considering their future prospects? Fact of the matter is, without new shareholders our harvest will be very meagre and we'll need all the pis we can get to reach the threshold where institutional investors can get on board. As I have said before, I would not have invested had I not had access to the information on this board and when I notice others are interested in finding out more about BIRD, I send them here - for quality information and expertise. The more information the better. Your reward for having put in all those hours of research will be your returns on share price due to having seen the huge potential long before us latecomers who bought in at 19p. Don't worry so much!
chriscallen: As NickB has observed I am a numbers man so I find the work done by _m_k interesting and valuable. My starting point is the slightly over 337M shares in issue. BIRDs shareholders site indicates that some 197M shares are held by the BoD or the institutional shareholders who have to disclose their holdings. I don't think this includes any shares that employees have gained under share incentive schemes. The maximum float not controlled by the BoD and the major IS is 140M. _m_k suggests that, on the basis of those who replied his survey, those who are members of this Board have an average holding of some 600K shares. There will be a number of members who did not reply and also shareholders who, through ignorance or choice, are not members of this BB. If 100 members replied the shares that they control would be around 60M and were it 200 about 120M. In either case it confirms that the free market is comparatively small i.e on the lower assumption some 80M and on the higher asumption as low as 20M. Both of these figures ignore those shareholders who are not members or who chose not to reply so the real figure will be less. The assumption that these are long term holders inevitably leads to the conclusion that the downside is limited because there will always be few sellers (and even less so if the existing shareholders have an appetite and financial resources to add to their holdings)and buyers will have to pay a very substantial premium to build any worthwhile stake. The multiple of 40 x sales revenue highlighted by the CFO in April supports this. It is therefore very difficult to be anything but bullish about future prospects for the share price. The only bar to a major re-rating of the share price is the lack of information (other than that forced by AIM Rules) about sales revenues being published by the BoD. Whilst details of individual contracts may not be disclosed the overall progress must be moving BIRD closer to breakeven and positive cashflow. 40+ hot leads a month in the current climate should be transforming the outlook. If they are not managing to convert these enquiries, mentioned in public by a senior employee, the BoD should say so now.
nickb: Editshare Blackbird webinar 18/11/20 Stephen Tallamey who is the CTO of Editshare (I think he’s based in Basingstoke U.K. so handy) Oliver Parker VP International commercial Blackbird. Editshare have a platform. Storage of media video files full quality camera files or from live feed that is managed in their asset manager which has become an essential product. Editshare have incorporated a check box that says ‘BlackbirdR17; this enables should the client choose Blackbird access to the clients media pool. It’s all setup to be automated for the chosen video content to appear in the Blackbird editor done of course by Blackbird edge which sits next to the media location. On Premise Large customers who have editshare storage and management on site can use this system as a kind of private Cloud rather than the public Cloud companies. This is important because it opens up more clients to us imho. Editshare does run on AWS and Blackbird can of course work that way. So very flexible Aim is to ‘reduce friction’ (important term imho) Lots of different workflows of course but it can be easy to pass work to Blackbird and for Blackbird to pass the work done back to editshare which could then be passed onto other systems for final craft editing, high end Colour grading work etc. So powerful for clients. Editshare don’t charge any extra to their clients for using Blackbird. Blackbird charge a license usually annual fixed price based on number of users NOT on usage. Both companies will offer support Integration was easy due to API’s Win win for both companies but I don’t know if Blackbird pays a commission to editshare if they sell to their clients. Editshare seem genuinely excited about it are fully onboard and once again the ‘this shouldn’t be possible’ line is said about our editing in the Cloud. So all good we will have to see if editshares clients will adopt Blackbird but the easier you make it the better and this imho is a great platform to be on. Hope that helps Sorry for the long ramble!
horneblower: Despite the hiatus of silence from the company, the share price is holding up well. The fan club is growing and although volumes are not great, any piece of good news from an RNS should boost the share price to a new high (discounting the prices from 5 years ago☺).
chriscallen: The run up in the share price from 14/10 and the subsequent decline share only one common feature: the total lack of substantial commercial news from BIRD. I don't believe that the sellers are representative of long term holders many of whom post on this BB so they are more likely to be those who purchased in the last placing taking profits. Revolutionary as the technology is, BIRD does need to show progressively increasing and regular customer wins if it is to convince the market as a whole rather than the faithful few that it is a world beating product. Clearly this cannot be achieved overnight but IM has now been in place over 3 years during which time sales revenue has increased from £759K to £1078K and somewhat more in 2020. His main problem seems to be that converting OEMs is taking a much longer time and converting their customers even longer. The recent Tweets revealing the US companies with which they have partnered don't, without an explanation of why this diversion from the OEM strategy has happened, inspire confidence when you look at their size (though to be fair they are several times bigger than BIRD). They really do need to win some substantial customers if the share price is to rise and retain its increase. Unless they can do so the institutional shareholders will come under great pressure to explain why they continue to support the BoD with their investments - in one case I think the first purchase was made in 2014 - and they like holders here have been patient (though not coming near the 20 years of some on this BB). Let's all hope that Christmas comes early this year for shareholders. I will not be selling.
jackrose1: Some strong opinions on how the new investors like us Uni students go about investing but the truth is that as a collective we made 64k today on the stock market and that's my group of 6 investors, some groups did over 100k trading today. I'm not really interested in a slanging match and I don't have to justify myself to anyone, but for those who see these forums as a place for healthy constructive debate and opinions, I can say that we're still holding some shares in BIRD but it's increasingly looking like a company that will not have much to offer unless it adds to their product range so we will wait for the next RNS and take it from there. Perhaps I was oversold in the fb group and had high expectations for BIRD as the company does stand out in the cloud video editing and publishing sector, or perhaps this is a long term stock to hold, but looking at the share price history and apparently they have diluted the shares 4 times in 5 years and that is a worry for us. I found this post and will quote. "Thanks for the above. I would point out that although they are cash rich, they do not make a profit and losses are not reducing. The bit that would concern me is that they look to be getting their cash from shareholders, over the last 5 years they have raised cash from shareholders 4 times. So there would be the risk that you may get diluted again as they have a track record for it."
sideshowbull: Nick - I think way less than that. Just to remind newbies, the CEO had to buy shares off the founder as would not be able to source that many without the share price exploding IMO BWTFDIK hTTps://
jackrose1: I found an interesting post in one of the groups. Quite straightforward and logical. "It's unquestionable that BIRD is the best in cloud video editing and publishing, the experts say so. Now as a company that's been around for 20 years and as for what they do, they are not getting investors excited, BIRD knows by now that there are only two things that can make the share price jump. One is a better balance sheet showing a good profit and possibility of dividends for the shareholders. Two, they put out new products such as tic tok for example and get the attention of new investors. It's as simple as that, I'm betting they will not only increase their clients base but also and most importantly tap into the social media apps the kids love so much. If this doesn't happen then I can't see any really big change on the share price (Share Price for the newbies out there)"
chriscallen: Whilst it is obvious there are only 63 days for RNS Announcements to be made that will impact on the 2020 Financial Statements. The pressure on IM and his team will now be building to deliver some major customer wins; success will propel the share price higher, failure will fuel a feeling in the market that BIRD has missed the bus and a downturn in the share price. In fact, so long as there are no rival products that can do what BIRD does or better, BIRD remains the only bus on this route.
