chriscallen: The value is certainly in the IP and the patents because they make BIRD attractive now for the medium term - 15 to 20 years and longer if more patents are added. But the patents are only valuable if the IP is in fact widely adopted by the market. There is a clear head of steam building up for that deployment but nobody can be sure until there is evidence that it is happening and that evidence will principally be in contracts signed. BIRD has a product with an incredibly high net margin that will convert into a tidal wave of cash for its shareholders. That will attract a very big share price premium from institutional investors needing a steadily appreciating income stream like pension funds. My gut feel is that so far even on this BB nobody has yet realised what the price could be in the short term (say 5 years) if IM/SBS hit the 10% market share simply because the applications are expanding the potential markets so much (evidenced by the 2 latest top flight recruits and their past history). When IM started I seem to recall that he mentioned turnover of £100M as a goal but looking at the PowerPoint slides that must now be increasing exponentially.

cabi1: John Honeycutt previously Head of Google Cloud Media and Entertainment loved BIRD so much he joined the board, and bought shares in the company. John Honeycutt said: “I’m thrilled to be joining the Blackbird team at such a critical time in the global content production industry. Flexibility, speed, collaboration and now distance are all key requirements in editing products. Blackbird’s remarkable technology is unique and transformative in all of these areas. I’m very excited to be joining Blackbird’s first-class team and can’t wait to help the company achieve its ambitious growth objectives.” hTTps://www.blackbird.video/news-articles/former-google-and-discovery-exec-john-honeycutt-joins-blackbird-board/ hTTps://www.fiercevideo.com/video/q-a-google-cloud-s-honeycutt-says-traditional-media-ready-to-go-all-cloud DYOR.

chriscallen: If NickB is correct and base camp is £100M (and he is nearer the mark than anything else I have seen but well short of IMs target) then £2 is not at all attractive. IM said years ago that target was 10% of the market and that has expanded to some £7.7BN plus the Licensing segment not yet quantified[2021 Presentation earlier this year]. Taking the market for which BIRD has given figures £7.7BN x 10% = £770M x 40 [per SW] = £30.8BN / 368M shares in issue = £83.70 per share plus the new income stream from "Blackbird Inside". If the arithmetic is anywhere near the mark nobody is going to be attracted even by £12. The next 12mths will show whether BIRD really is a unicorn. The numbers are difficult to believe but then BIRD is very unusual and SBS is a computing genius.

chriscallen: No news simply means that there will be no lasting market support for any price rise. The unbeatable rule is follow the money and no matter how good the technology (and BIRDs is world beating in theory) if the market has no evidence that it is being adopted the share price weakness will continue. Why on earth should an investor buy if those who have the knowledge of what BIRD can do to create substantial cost savings and at the same time save CO2 emissions decline to sign up? At present $100M turnover is simply a dream. They need signed up, revenue producing deals won on a regular basis before things turn around permanently. I'm still not selling but if an attractive bid came along I would be tempted as I don't believe that no news in 6 mths - 3 days suggests that BIRD is going anywhere fast soon. With the exception of SBS and IM none of the BoD, even in the last year when IM was buying a significant stake, have purchased a goodly number of shares in the open market and that speaks volumes.

nickb: Cabi Notes from the AGM just a few weeks ago. THE PLAYER (SSB) Player prototype will be released in summer more likely near IBC with ability to control original content ability(delete change etc.) (I360) Q8. If, say, Google (AKA YouTube) wanted to use the BIRD player for videos that have already been created would that be possible? A8. Yes, each video would be transcoded to a BIRD video format on the fly. This way, you would not need to re-code the entire library of content to the BIRD format. COMPETITION? (SSB) Likes of Cutting room are not cloud native and claims are not true - we are the only cloud native editor in a browser end of.. (I360) …but will not be accepted for global infrastructure deals of the likes that BIRD is currently engaged in trying to land). Deals and OEMs (SSB). OEMS are growing (SSB) TATA are growing but very clear on NDA (I360) Q9. Should we be concerned about the lack of news on deal flow? Does it mean that no deals have been done? A9. No and No. We are ‘growing up’ as a company and are no longer trumpeting individual deals like this because of client confidentiality and because it makes us seem a bit small in their eyes. Instead, we want to focus on doing large-scale infrastructure deals and announcing those. Ip deals Powered by Blackbird (I360) Q Would you expect the other IP deals in the pipeline will be of the same size as the one that you have already signed? A4. Yes, probably larger. IM also strongly emphasised that the minimum guarantees were just that, a very low baseline (I360) Q6. When will the licensee be made public? A6. By IBC (Sept) at the latest, but quite possibly earlier than that. (I360). Q1. Is the IP licencing deal EVS? A1. IM: EVS is an OEM deal and not the same as a PBB licencing deal. (So, I think we can conclude from this response, that it's not EVS). (I360) Q2. Is the IP licencing deal GV? A2. We cannot say (Some conflicting reports from the AGM on this difficult to answer Q) NAB (I360) Q11. How did it go at NAB? A11. Really, really well. It’s very exciting. Apart from having a busy stand, you should see it as significant that we were one of only 4 companies in this entire market that Microsoft chose to invite onto their own stand. The other 3 were all $Bn companies. That speaks volumes for how well BIRD is being considered as part of the “patchwork quilt” that makes up the end-to-end delivery mechanism for video within the global ecosystem. IM then added emphasis on how well-positioned BIRD is specifically with AWS.

1macosta: I did a bit of research over the weekend and I haven't found an AIM company that has diluted so many times as BIRD, I found many that had big massive diluting but none with so many consecutive throughout the years as BIRD. How do they do it i wonder. As long as BIRD caters to a still relatively niche market of cloud video editing and has stiff competition in that industry with the likes of giant Adobe and all the other small start ups, BIRD is like the salmon swimming against the current. Only targeting the mass market like tik tok and YouTube, Instagram and all the other social media apps will BIRD be taken seriously by investors. That or bring out new products that add value and increase income. For now the cult are following and stuck with a lame duck 60× overvalued that somehow has the capability of diluting shares for over 22 years. For how long will they be able to do this I wonder?

mcsean2164: Have to admit that I'm a bit worried with mass drops in big tech this week, meaning their war chest might be depleted and a buyout not as lucrative. I'd a dream last night the price was at 22p. I don't think I've ever had a share price dream before so obviously this share price collapse is leaking into my subconscious. We may end up waiting a long time for an share price recovery if the team don't get a move on...

chriscallen: I'm wondering whether quite a lot of posters here have actual knowledge of how a real listed company operates? Keeping shareholders informed and happy is a major part of the CEOs job (often delegated but everybody knows its sensitive) in those which are successful. BIRD gives the impression that spoonfuls of honey every six months with little that means anything in isolation in between is acceptable. I'm not blaming IM because the approach pre dates him though there was little honey then. There are those on this BB who think sales are not relevant. They are wrong. Wrong because the share price influences who can be an IS. Wrong because if sales growth declines it has an impact on share price and investors rarely flock to buy when the share price is falling. Wrong because it affects shareholder sentiment and may actually accelerate selling. Sales volumes are not everything if the product is rotten but it does count even when it's a world beater. We do know that the market at which BIRD is currently aiming is growing at over 30% (see IDC earlier on this BB) so BIRDs growth last year is average and isn't what a world class technology should be achieving. It suggests that the customers have not accepted that it is game changing (at least until NAB if posters here are correct). BIRD on it's own cannot change that. The tie ups with AWS and MSFT Azure should be a big help in that respect especially as MSFT appears to be challenging AWS in the Private Cloud sector. So my question to those who think the technology is more important than sales is simply: how will you know when the technology owned by BIRD is succeeding and becoming the dominant force in the market? Clearly the technology exists and has done for some time

chriscallen: NickB You are probably right but sadly without sales the share price will stay anchored where it is. Unfortunately there will be shareholders who cannot wait another 24 years for a meteoric rise. Dividends probably don't matter but sales growth certainly does. I have never sold any shares but if somebody made a sensible offer and if I thought your view that sales are not a priority is correct I think I would be tempted. One worry is that Premier Miton might well be very unhappy if the share price stays where it now is and decide to reduce their exposure - I think they first invested in 2014 and its unlikely they or their investors were thinking of below 20p as a target price 8 years later.
