chriscallen: The new non execs, Honeycutt and Airey, are both a vast improvement on what was before. But the execution of BoD policy lies with IM and SW primarily. The issue we have seen in the last couple of days is not about the product (or at least I hope it isn't) which we all agree is a potential world beater. The heart of the debate is about the timing of future growth and seeing that reflected in the share price. Lots of seminars and key people in the sectors which would use BIRDs product saying how good it are welcome. But that is not enough. BIRD comes with a history of under performance and that hangs heavy on it now. Is there another innovative technology company that has waited for 20 years for the market for its product to happen? Those who think BIRD is now about to rocket may well be right and I am sure all of us would be delighted. But so far its not showing in the figures they have published or in the PR they have released. All we know is that 3 of the wins that primarily affect 2020 were full blown RNS ie worth over £100K. They ought to be worth much more than that but we don't actually have a figure though H1 results might give a guide. All of the other wins are RNS Reach so are worth less than £100K. So given a fair wind to new contracts in H2 turnover on past evidence might get to £2M+. But it takes an act of faith to think on what we know so far to see turnover of £10M or more. An increase of some £9M on 2019 would require 90 contracts at £100K to get to that figure which is not impossible but on what has happened in H1 is that likely? At a margin of 85% £10M would create a gross profit of £8.5M less say £2.5M for all expenses and the bottom line would be say £6M ie about 1.7p a share. A P/E of 50 would give an share price of 85p (Netcall, and Tavistock are Technology AIM shares with a P/E >50 so it is possible). More importantly BIRD would have a real base for faster expansion in 2021 and on. But what the market sees now is that BIRD, which has never(?) made a profit needs to treble its 2019 turnover just to break even. I think they can do it but they need to be winning the contracts now because after September will not leave time for enough of the income from the wins to hit the bottom line before the year end. That's why the share price is where it is and why without the OEM deals it won't break upwards. But at 7:00am tomorrow BIRD may prove me wrong. Lets hope so.
chriscallen: They have certainly done many Webinars and Panels since the end of March which appear to have had good sized audiences. I wonder how many have created good sales leads and ended in new customers rather than just promoting name awareness. My secret fear as an investor rather than a trader is that they have a world beating product that may not win over the market. There are plenty of examples of the "good enough" beating the "best". NickB is backing the technology and that's one sensible approach but how many current shareholders are prepared to wait another 5, 10 or 20 years to see results reflected in the share price? IM is coming up to 3 years in post and has managed to double turnover and increase BIRDs visibility but profits and positive cashflow have so far eluded him and the team. Buying BIRDs shares may be like planting oak trees which take 150 years or so to mature. Everything tells me this will come right in the end but will I be ended before that happens is the ultimate question.
chriscallen: I have to confess that I cannot recall any listed company publishing its forward order book. The question that follows is whether, and if so how much, that increased certainty will add to the current price. SW said that the current price when he was speaking was 40x the revenue. £1288K was for 2021 and later and the balance was included in the 2020 secured revenue which was stated to be equal to 2019 revenue. SW then commented that a further £150K had been added since the figures were released. At close of business on Thursday the Company had a capital value of £60M. This can be seen either as a multiple of the 2020 contracted orders (x49) or of the entire contracted forward orders (x29). But these figures include no further wins adding revenue in the current year or indeed in future years. The very high GP% means that any additional sales feed directly into a significant share price increase. If the company had revenue of £10M the multiple on this way of assessing value would drop to x6. If it was maintained at x49 the value of the company would be £490 i.e. around £1.50 a share. A £6 share price would therefore require recognised revenue of around £40M.
pat_cash: Tbh I don’t know much about brokers etc but I guess for the moment their main/only aim is to allow the shares to be traded, given Blackbird presumably isn’t going to need any more cash anytime soon after the post-Bloomberg raising. So the share price shouldn’t really matter to Blackbird or, as you say, to a long-term investor. Though I appreciate it’s frustrating to people who’ve held for years and years. Some potential clients could be a bit put off by a low share price, but what can you do really, and it has been steadily increasing - you'd hope they'd be sold on the great tech anyway.
cabi1: I wonder what’s in store for the BIRD share price next week. I’ve still got £10k to put in, it’s just a question of when.
cabi1: I would imagine they are just getting on with it. They signed a 5 year contract with Bloomberg which we knew nothing about. For all we know that could have taken a year to complete. The CEO seems very bullish when you listen to the VOX markets interview. They are hiring. Currently looking for three people, so I would imagine that’s for growth as no one has left. Unfortunately for the share price we have Coronavirus which has everyone spooked. BIRD share price is down but we haven’t seen much selling in notional terms. One announcement and the share price would be straight back up to 18p+ in a blink. I’m ready to invest another £10k just not sure when. Bought small today at 12.7p just to get a print down here. Will see how markets are next week.
cabi1: Bonio. Alternatively BIRD share price takes off after news that all the major US networks sign up Blackbird for the Tokyo Olympics due to travel restrictions for their employees due to Coronavirus fears.
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.
