nico115: Chimers short Boku long MercWorse pairs trade of the money Ouch ouch ouch Boku price Target 200p
hansbil: telegraph article Today’s stock is a little-known London-listed tech company whose software helps the likes of Apple and Spotify sign up new customers. Boku, based in California but quoted on Aim, provides the systems that enable Apple, for example, to let its users pay for its services via their mobile phone bill rather than via a bank account or credit card. This can be particularly valuable in emerging markets, where banking systems may not be fully developed. “Spotify, Apple and others see this ‘carrier billing’ payment method as a valuable way to attract new customers because it makes signing them up very simple,” said Matt Evans, who holds Boku shares in his Investec UK Smaller Companies fund. He added that, although it hadn’t lived up to early expectations that everyone would use it for buying smartphone apps, carrier billing still accounted for about 4pc of payments made on mobile phones and was now growing rapidly. “The amount of money that flows through Boku’s systems is huge and is growing at about 40pc a year,” he said. “The company takes a cut of each payment and its own revenues have been growing at about 70pc annually. This is expected to slow to 30pc-50pc over the next couple of years but I expect it to be well into double digits for a long time.” Because Boku’s costs are in building the systems in the first place, there is minimal expense involved in servicing transaction growth and roughly 95pc of additional revenues fall straight on to the bottom line, Mr Evans said. As a result, this part of the business is highly profitable and cash-generative. However, in January it bought a loss-making identity verification firm called Danal. “Identity checking fits very well with carrier billing because merchants such as Apple and Spotify want to protect themselves from fraud,” the fund manager said. “But the acquisition looked expensive and because Danal was­ ­­loss-making the market struggled to value the combined business.” The shares have been volatile this year but now stand below the level at which they traded before the deal was announced. “The combined business is valued at a multiple of about 15 on the ‘enterprise value to Ebitda’ measure using forecast 2020 numbers, with a ‘free cash flow yield’ of 7pc,” Mr Evans said. “This looks cheap for a company that’s growing so quickly. “The next stage of growth is in the identity business, which should offer a greater contribution in the next few years, driven partly by regulation. It could be very interesting.” The company has net cash and its already good returns on capital of about 22pc should rise thanks to the way extra sales translate so well into earnings. Cash conversion is currently held back by investment costs but should also improve. Questor says: buy Ticker: BOKU Share price at close: 82.5p
np912: Hello Mr Short Maker, Driving down a share price with little knowledge of a company can be fun.... but hey not understanding the business nor the financials can be very very costly. So, first the company has at no point raise primary capital whist listed. Whilst the cash flow generation has been positive since float. Fact. Yes VC’s have sold down which has not helped but if I were you i would keep an eye on the top of the register.... The company has continued to grow its payment processing global business significantly greater than forecasts, but the ID side has been slower and yet will still grow revenues from $5m to $8 this year, and over $12m next..... The ID growth has been slower that expected which is why the stock is at these levels.... If it stays undervalued against both its cash flow generation but more importantly it strategic value in the online digital payment ID space - either a VC (look at the top of the register on new buyers) or someone like GB Group will buy it. I think Boku is worth 160p plus - pre its cash position - and cash has continued to grow even with the drag of $5m Ebitda loss from the ID business, acquired in late 2017.... I could continue to update you on the facts why you are wrong.... but hey that’s my. IP not yours... do some more work.... In some ways i hope the price continues to be soft.... as it will give the opportunity for the buyers to buy more and therefore make more.... If you have any further points to make or questions pls respond.
alangrifbang: Nico,there is no negative news at all here ,it's the moron Tom trying to ramp the price downwards,the market is down a lot today and several shares have dropped,he is a one trick pony ,the share price goes down and there he is ,the share price goes up and he's nowhere to be seen ,it's the same on every site he posts on,he hasn't a clue and his track record is one of the worst I have ever seen,if I had taken any notice of him I would have been a lot worse off than I am today,so keep the faith and don't take any notice,he's not worth it,
bam567: How is that up you total wally? Explain? Share Price Information for Boku, Inc. (BOKU) London Stock Exchange Share Price: 99.50
amt: One last note Re Chimers. I noticed he predicted that Burford Capital was worthless after the share price collapsed due to Muddy Waters report. The share price has since recovered from 6.00 to 8.40. Report seems to be loosing its impact. So yet another totally wrong prediction from Chimers looks likely. Given that AIM has so many badly performing shares it takes real stupidity to get a prediction that share will go down wrong on at least 3 out of 3 occasions that I have investigated. He would have done much better with a pin.
olliemac1: Thanks for sharing the DCF valuation article @Thomas4billing. I should’ve seen it on Simply Wall Street sooner but it was very helpful to read it even now. It’s true that the Boku share price took a hit while Danal shareholders benefited but if the new combined revenues and, particularly, the earnings can grow from this acquisition the share price should eventually reflect that. IMO this company is not going anywhere so it’s only a matter of time.
kalkaar: deferred consideration of $62m will be payable should Danal achieve Revenue greater than $10m (from it's current $5m) in 2019. Assume that will be achievable and if the share price is below 120p then the number of shares issued will be calculated using the minimum price of 120p i.e. 51.67m shares which as you say is better than issuing shares at say the current price of 75p because that would mean more shares in issue and greater dilution. In the unlikely event BOKU share price was above 170p then the conversion will result in Danal shareholders getting 36.5m shares.. so for Danal shareholders the conversion at 120p is more beneficial. for BOKU shareholders the higher the share price the less dilution. as against the current share price the 120p conversion looks favourable could result in a 34% increase in shares in issue if conversion took place on the worst case scenario for BOKU shareholders (51.7m + 26.7m) / 224m the cash conversion is only an option for the BOKU board, cannot imagine they are going to want to pay that deferred consideration of $62m in cash. A lot to pay for a company that had revenue of only $5m but there may have been other interested parties and the strategic fit and technology being acquired must have been compelling.. not to mention the saved investment costs in bringing their own product to market.. noteworthy also that the CEO says integration would only "modestly add to costs."
kalkaar: probably explains why the share price has fallen so much without so much of a bounce of late.. and now lots more bailing on the news of the acquisition. Understandable to have concern when an acquisition is made which is financed by the issuing of a bucket load of shares (26m in the first instance) but I think those selling are missing a trick here without due consideration. Boku has just bought "The World's Leading Mobile Identity Platform" the potential here is phenomenal when you consider this segment of the market is still in its infancy and set for an explosion in growth.. having a global identity offering will be highly attractive for getting customers and sign-ups. Danal, Inc. is a privately held US company whose investors include Discover Financial Services, Morgenthaler Group, Orange Telecom, Bangkok Bank and Experian. looking at Danal's website you will see they have just secured a deal across the 4 MNO's for the mobile identity product here in the UK.. so there is lots of logic as to why BOKU are making the purchase. They are straight off the ground and now have saved a number of years had they gone down the road of developing and marketing their own offering. Integration and growth will now be the key. Boku's strategy will pay dividends.. the question is when, not if.. could see the likes of EXPN (market cap £16bn+) buying BOKU and it would be a drop in the ocean for them and a perfect strategic fit too. As the CEO acknowledges "Mobile commerce is booming.." and it's clear what their strategy is, " build the world leader in this emerging space." even if the share price bounces can see BOKU getting taken over.. ultimately that has to be the objective for all shareholders and more so if the value of the company languishes at these levels next year
amt: simplesimon I think Bango share price will go up buts its nothing to do with the original BOKU IP owners switching. They are the sort of investors involved in start ups so they work by funding from the start and then look for an exit once the business is fully established. It's as simple as that. I think BOKU share price will move sideways at around the 160p value in the short term. So we now know what value the big investors put on BOKU at its present time and happy with 1.60.
