The current share price feels shockingly low, and in an important sense there is no getting away from that. We are all financially boxed into a corner and are stuck with having to just wait for things to improve.

It feels strange that the share price is so completely disconnected from what we perceive to be Blackbird's significantly positive business prospects.

The management have decided to just get on with their job of finalising the development of Elevate and are not, at this stage pursuing lots of publicity for it. Their reason for this decision has not been shared with us. One theoretical possibility is that there is a potential deal in the wings, or maybe that is not the case.

We will just have to sit it out, and watch the whole thing unfold over the next 3 to 12 months. There is no alternative. Fingers crossed!

There is a bit of a leap between where we are now and where Figma was when it was 'aquired' at $20billion. However the risk to Adobe of inaction was very clearly spelled out.

As for those prattling on about the share price down here, the share price =/= business.

Bring on the launch.

Hairflick seems a little all over the place.
The sells might be buys... but the share price is down.
Biggest buy signal is in but share price is still in the bin.

This share price malaise is not good. Zero buying pressure and the seller is still around. Will I end up losing a chunk of my profits? Fingers crossed hairflick knows his onions and isn’t just bonkers.

Given EVS and AVID which deal would really create a shock wave? I'm a supporter of the EVS deal and I think it will in time prove a great success but the delayed announcement of that deal did not even create a ripple. I have no doubt that if AVID signed up with BIRD it would truly be a shock. EVS is not the dominant leader in its field but AVID undoubtedly is. Unfortunately nobody except IM can really know who he meant. Even now a deal with AVID should have a major impact. But the focus is shifting to the new product because it is designed to be a mass market product. The prospect of winning 1M users at even $15 a month would transform BIRDs share price and launch it towards SSBs taget in the high £30s and that's just a tiny bit of the potential market.

I suspect that the deals at 7p today were all buys as mine was.

NickB is right. Why has BIRD not had approaches? The possibilities include:
1) They have but have turned them down without telling shareholders (to be fair nobody would want to buy if SBS did not support them)
2) They have but no acceptable terms could be agreed that could be put to shareholders.
3) The possible suitors have taken the view that if BIRD can do it anybody can if they throw enough money at it. That has two main drawbacks. Firstly, as AVID has shown migrating a non native product to the Cloud is actually not an easy problem to crack (as SBS said they could throw pots of money at it and not solve the issues in 10 years - any sign of the new owners realising that they need to talk to BIRD?). Secondly BIRD has done it and holds the keys to the door with its IP so an other way is likely to be second best and more expensive.
4)So long as no other competitor looks like it is getting close to achieving it, what's the hurry?

If takes off it may cause the herd to panic and decide that now they must have the solution.

If BIRD is going to make the new offering a success and pick up business from the likes of AVID there's no better time to buy than now. The downside is limited and the upside very significant. I have still not sold any part of my holding and have recently added more as I think BIRD is now showing signs that its share price will outperform in 2024.

In one sense it seems strange that Premier Miton, the largest investment fund shareholder, may well be continuing to relentlessly sell shares in Blackbird and so drive down the share price to an extraordinarily low level at a time which is so important for Blackbird as it comes very close to launching the new creator product.
If it is them, then they don't seem to be managing their NAV in Blackbird very effectively and surely could focus on selling elsewhere to match the small amounts of cash that they are securing from selling Blackbird.
A strange world indeed!

The evidence shows that Blackbird management, having presented Elevate at the special events, have gone into silent mode yet again, and are making no visible effort to maintain excitement about the launch of the creator product despite the share price constantly falling, as I presume PM keep selling shares.
The result is a derisory 6.74p bid price despite what we are promised is to come. The investment market seems to have no understanding of Blackbird's potential due to it being effectively a well kept secret.

If there are no buyers due to their being no general knowledge of what is to come, and the fact that we all have enough shares, then even a tiny imbalance each day between buyers and sellers produces a mark down in the share price. The fact that the current share price has no connection with the intrinsic real value of the company is a separate issue.

It feels like a crazy world where the share price may indeed be irrelevant if a buy out deal has already been agreed. However, since PM own so many shares, could a deal have been done without their knowledge? If they did know something positive, then surely they wouldn't be selling at such low prices.

If I was MD, knowing what is coming product wise, I wouldn't be sitting back, watching the share price dropping most days and now down to a few pennies.

The top management have so much money invested personally then I have to assume that they know what they are doing, and it will be to protect their money, and coincidentally ours too! It feels like a crossword puzzle where I just can't solve the clue!!

50p is 6-7x current share price

I think we all agree that the opportunity is far greater - multiple pounds of share price - however, it would be far from foolish to accept 50p at this point in time
