invest360: I agree about your binary point, NickB. About a year ago there was a, say, equal risk that they'd make it big (10x-50x) or run out of money (in 30 months as it was then) and go bust. We knew they had great tech but the $bn question was whether any large companies would want to buy the product? That question has been answered, now, given the type of corporates they�ve sign-up recently, like A+E (Disney). The next question was, having bought the product, would there be any proof of it going down well? I think that question was answered by TownNews - increased penetration from 3 - 46 news stations in a year. And on Monday we learned that their partner Deltatre will be increasing its penetration into NFL from just Europe to another 181 countries (having increased the online viewership of NFL by 48%). And the Senior Director of Production at A+E says that he is "Psyched ... about the deployment of Bird" and even though it's a 6-figure deal it's only penetrated about 10% of the corporation. So that risk has been dealt with, too. Next hurdle is whether there are any competitors about to eat their lunch? It's hard to be sure about this, but we know that the issues involved in producing Codecs of this sophistication (Cloud + Faster than real time ingest + 2Mb download + Pro-editing + java script + zero-latency + 21 USP player + 8m hours of professional usage) are going to be challenging for anyone to emulate/better. And SS and his team have had 30 years of doing nothing other than this � so they know a thing or two. More to the point, people at the cutting edge of this market, like CTO of Deltatre say �Best of breed� and CEO of TownNews: �� can�t get anywhere else.� Then Google announce that BB are one of only 6 founding partners in their big push into becoming the dominant player in the Cloud. With all this in mind my view is that BB have now removed that barrier, as well. If that is the case then the pipeline that 5 salespeople have been working on over 2 years must be around 200-300 major corporates, will start to turn into deals pretty soon. This includes the work of 10 global partners, plus AWS, Azure (who delivered A+E) and now Google. From this evidence, my belief is that we can finally say with some confidence that it�s highly likely that deal flow is about to start coming pretty thick and fast. If that is the case, then as soon as they break even, and with a gross margin of 85% then for EVERY �100k deal (ie tiny) you can imagine how this will affect the share price on a P/E ratio of 20-30. I invite you to do the maths� There are companies quoted on the FTSE 250 that might have �bn turnover but < 10% net profits. But BB is a SaaS company where even a �50m turnover would create a similar market cap. If I�m right, then the share price is a shadow of it's potential. As Adam said on the first night �Stand back, Eve, I�m not sure how big this thing is going to get.�
chriscallen: We are now facing known unknowns i.e. we know there are some large deals that BIRD is pursuing but we don't know when they could be announced. Even if they do not win all of them what they do win will transform BIRDs financial prospects. Once sales in the year exceed �10M even allowing for costs doubling the business will be cash generative and at �20M the share price on even a modest P/E of say 20 for a tech company will be well over 50p.
chriscallen: Back in November last year IM was talking about several (which I take to be 3 or more - less being one or a couple) large deals. 3 of the same size and profitability that Bonio10000 is suggesting would yield about £25M profit or just over 8p a share which a P/E of 30 would transform into around £2.40. The figures are illustrative of how the share price can fly if some of those elusive contracts are finally reeled in by the BIRD team.
cabi1: Astralvision, no one knows. They are partnering at IBC, that’s all we know. It’s just caused excitement, and what I believe is a re-rating of the share price. Recent wins with A+E Networks, CEO and family loading up with shares, everyone looking at investing in the Cloud, and now the Google seal of approval. I think share price has further to go in the coming weeks. I already have a large position, but will be looking to top up next week, if we break above 12p, and stay there. IMHO.
cabi1: Horneblower, I don’t think the BIRD share price will be effected by the dip in the Dow. I believe we are going through a re-rating. The Google seal of approval, and the interest in everything relating to the Cloud will see the share price back up above 12p and beyond. News of a significant deal into the 20’s, large seven figure deal, and we are talking 40+. The movement in the share price this week, plus the Google partnership will feed through over the weekend, and early next week, so I think we still have further to go. No one in the right mind, even McSean is going to bail out now, just as it’s about to take off. This could be huge. You’ve got to be in it to win it. IMHO.
mcsean2164: Yes, great exposure last year after partnering with Microsoft! Oh wait... we were are still below our pre Aziz departure share price... Nearly two years of IM's revolutionary leadership, let's hope for a return of share price back to pre IM highs...
gnnmartin: Yesterday's price rise was (I guess) just a temporary narrowing of the spread as the bid price rose towards the offer price. Today's fall is just the old spread resumed. Someone has (again I guess) wanted to reduce a large holding in Bird for some time, and their sales have stalled the share price rise each time it approaches 8p.
invest360: Bonio. Captevate and Eva. Yes, a complete commercial flop. But technically... If you listen to what IM said you will get that the value of these products is what happens in the hands of companies that have billions - not millions - of end-users. Even if this was not the intention at the time, the value to Bird of these 2 products is that they prove the versatility of the technology. It's great that Blackbird is now capable of fulfilling the functional demands of massive media companies like A+E. But the biggest home-run by far is gaining interest from the West Coast tech giants. Why? Because what they are after, much more than some great product solutions, is enabling technology at the platform level. What Bird has created is a soup-to-nuts video architecture. It has proven the ability to provide a video backbone powerful enough (and unique enough) to displace what companies like Facebook already have. SBS has already pulled off just such a deal in his days at Eidos. They signed exactly this type of video backbone contract with Oracle (worldwide) because no one else could do what SBS had achieved, and it sky-rocketed Eidos's share price to the point that they bought Core Design which, months later, released Tomb Raider (and became the fastest growing company on the London Stock Exchange). And, er... IM has already said he's in dialogue with the West Coast Tech giants. Oh, and knowing what he knows, he keeps on buying more shares...

TIDMBIRD RNS Number : 6793C Blackbird PLC 19 June 2019 19 June 2019 Blackbird plc ("Blackbird" or the "Company") Blackbird signs A+E Networks Blackbird plc (AIM: BIRD), developer and seller of market-leading cloud video platform Blackbird, is pleased to announce that it has agreed a significant six-figure, multi-year deal with A+E Networks. A+E Networks, a joint venture between Hearst Communications and Disney, will incorporate Blackbird within its media infrastructure for a range of key video workflows. The use of Blackbird is designed to deliver major productivity enhancements across A+E Networks' business. A+E Networks has a portfolio of global brands that includes A+E, History, Lifetime, Lifetime Movies, fyi and Viceland. The integration of Blackbird will enable A+E Networks' vast video library to be rapidly ingested and accessed in the cloud. Executives, producers, editors, marketers and others within A+E Networks will be able to view, edit and enrich content from anywhere, on any device. Blackbird will significantly accelerate the visibility, immediacy and management of A+E Network's video archive for the repurposing of content. Blackbird will also enable live clipping workflows. With the growth of live video aired across its portfolio, A+E Networks can quickly deliver content highlights to social media channels. In addition, the Blackbird Review app enables A+E Networks to review, comment and approve video content on handheld devices. The agreement with A+E Networks continues Blackbird's growth across North America and internationally. It follows recent deals with Peloton, MSG Networks, Deltatre, IMG, NRL and TownNews. Contacts:
chriscallen: The share price will as we all know in market terms always be dominated by prospective earnings and the best sign of that is having some significant earnings now and possibly even a profit. In terms of numbers this is essentially a specialised software business in a fast growing sector. So taking a very conservative p/e ratio of 10 and a profit margin of 80% on sales (many software companies are higher because the bulk of the cost of the product has already been borne before a sale is made). There are just short of 300M shares in issue. On these assumptions to get a share price of 50p the company needs to have profits of 5p per share. That requires a net profit of £15M and sales of £18.75M. If the p/e ratio were 20 this drops to less than £10M sales. So we can speculate as much as we like but it all comes down to sales and margins achieved. If we take what IM said in November 2018 as his view of what could be achieved that level of sales is clearly feasible. It is the sales record that is keeping the share price nailed to the floor and no matter what the BoD say or the optimistic PR that is put out the share price won't change significantly until one or more large customers sign on the bottom line. Only then it will take off.
