i see that Boku is the tenth biggest holding in the Chelverton UK Growth fund , at 1.64% of the fund . I'm invested in the Chelverton fund , which has a good record , but I'm not directly invested in Boku . Nonetheless , I might put some funds into Boku shares . Good luck all .

Interesting article about DCB growth: https://www.telecomlead.com/telecom-services/operators-to-generate-9-bn-revenue-from-carrier-billing-82202Mobile operators are expected to generate $9 billion revenue annually by 2022 from carrier billing that allows wireless subscribers to make purchases by charging payments to their phone bill. The 3-fold increase in carrier billing revenue from the estimated $2.9 billion in 2017, as per Juniper Research, is driven by bundled content such as Spotify across Europe and Netflix in markets including the Philippines and Mexico.OTT content providers can reduce marketing costs by leveraging the brand name of local mobile operators by using carrier billing for acquisition.There will be new business opportunities for carrier billing in sectors such as ticketing and physical goods purchases. Amazon Japan's decision to opt for carrier billing is a potential game-changer.The strategy for operators in order to compete effectively with card payments and players such as PayPal would be the acceptance of a lower revenue share, reducing their cut from 15 percent or more to the single digit range.Business decision makers at telecom operators should be more proactive in promoting carrier billing. Telcos have limited resource in their marketing departments.Usage was often constrained by low spending limits designed to limit exposure to fraudulent purchases, an issue that could be addressed by implementing improved reporting platforms, said the report.Carrier billing is the most significant underdeveloped revenue stream for operators, said research author Windsor Holden."The customer billing relationship is one of the mobile operator's greatest assets, but consumers are often unaware they can use their phone bill to pay for a wide range of goods and services," Windsor Holden said.

That will not happen: all metrics are very positive and growth strong (+40% in revenues, +300% in transactions). This is a growing transaction plateform business that is working on its own, managing + 2 Billion USD$ Transactions... Worsecase, they can fire half of the team and keep going to generate profits every day. Just like American Express or other Payment companies do when profits go down.. they downsize a bit, and the share keeps reaching sky.

I doubt... Very Strong shareholders joined the boat since IPO and they are not in a hurry to get out, solid growth, Positive not like Bango, + 4 times bigger than Bango in terms of revenues (24Mu versus 4,5 M ? )... and still cheap... Cap only +50% than Bango whereas business is 5 to 6 times bigger. And Mobile Operators want more and more to compete with Banks / Credit cards issuers... and Boku is their best partner ever to do so.

More revenues for Boku. Just fished that info on LinkedIn from one of Boku executivesSpotify just launched carrier billing on Turkcell, the largest Turkish operator with 36 million subscribers. DCB is one of the best payment option to monetize users online and is gaining payment market shares all over the world

Some great positiveness in this uncertain financial world ... Boku put +70 Mu Shares in the market on November 20th 2017 and given the low level of transactions, means that there are very strong investors behind the scene who bet on the mid term...Just very small transactions make the share price vary

Boku Mobile payment platform for digital content 23 January 2018 | Boku Boku’s direct carrier billing platform offers an alternative customer acquisition route for digital content merchants. Use of Boku’s platform has boosted subscriber numbers for customers such as Spotify due to its ease of use. The company is well positioned to benefit from the growth of digital content, as well as from connecting its existing merchants to additional carriers in multiple countries. Today’s trading update confirms that there is strong and growing demand for the Boku platform and that the company has now reached EBITDA profitability on a run rate basis. Market cap £181m BOKU Listing - AIM Shares in issue -213.6m Business description Boku is the largest independent direct carrier billing company. It operates a billing platform that connects merchants with mobile network operators (MNOs) in more than 50 countries. It has 148 employees based in the US, UK, Germany and India. Bull ■ Customers are market leaders ■ Digital content market forecast to grow ■ EBITDA turned positive in H217; net cash position Bear ■ Customer concentration ■ Limited pricing power ■ Multiple MNO relationships to manage Boku is a research client of Edison Investment Research Limited Scale play in direct carrier billing Boku is the largest independent provider of direct carrier billing (DCB) services. DCB is an alternative payment mechanism that enables consumers to pay for (mainly) digital goods and services via their mobile phones, whether they are on a pre-paid or post-paid contract. Boku has an impressive roster of merchants already using its service, including Apple, Facebook, Google, Microsoft, Sony and Spotify. From the merchant’s perspective, offering DCB provides access to consumers that either do not have a credit or debit card, or prefer not to use them online. It can also provide a faster and simpler way to pay, removing friction in the payment process. Boku should benefit from market growth in digital content (eg music, games, video) as well as growth in the number of carriers connected to each merchant. Strong trading update Boku has confirmed that trading further strengthened in Q417, and expects to report FY17 revenues of $24-24.5m (+40% y-o-y). The company processed transactions (TPV) worth $1.7bn in FY17 (H1 $0.6m, H2 $1.1bn), versus $544m in FY16. As lower margin transaction-based revenues are growing faster than higher margin settlement-based revenues, TPV growth outpaces revenue growth; despite this, the pace of TPV growth in the medium term should drive material revenue growth over FY18 and FY19. With positive adjusted EBITDA expected in H217, the company is well on the way to generating positive cash flows. Cash at the end of FY17 stood at $20m, providing ample funds to support the business until cash flow break-even and to fund development, whether internally or via acquisition. Valuation: Reflects strong growth prospects Boku is currently trading on an EV/sales multiple of 10.0x FY17e and 7.3x FY18e, and an EV/EBITDA multiple of 54.2x FY18e. Forecast strong growth in revenue and profitability should bring these multiples down to more normal levels from FY19. Consensus estimates Year end Revenue (US$m) EBITDA (US$m) EPS (c) DPS (c) EV/EBITDA (x) Yield (%) 12/16 17.2 (12.3) (74.8) 0.0 N/A 0.0 12/17e 23.5 (2.9) (4.2) 0.0 N/A 0.0 12/18e 32.0 4.3 (0.0) 0.0 54.5 0.0 12/19e 40.0 11.9 2.3 0.0 19.7

TPV at year end must have been at least 2.2b annualised as 1.1 billion in h2 and 2 billion annualised in November if my logic is correct. So with a bit of growth perhaps heading for 2.6 billion for 2018.

Growth has really taken off spectacularly in second half and positive ebitda is very encouraging. Plenty of cash and by the look of it not much cash burn.

I'm interested in acquiring shares in Boku , but every time when I press on " investors " on the Company's website , my screen almost immediately goes a dark grey , making the investors site illegible . Is any one else experiencing this problem ? My interest has been aroused by two funds holding , one of which is the small but very successful Chelverton UK Equity Growth fund ( Boku is their tenth smallest holding , at 1.64 % of the fund ) . Although very interested in Boku , buying a stake without being able to read the Company's website would be rather too much of a jump in the dark . I sent the Company an e-mail concerning my problems with the Investors part of its website a few days ago , but have not yet received a reply . Any comments ?

By StockMarketWire | Tue, 16th January 2018 - 08:00Equities research analysts at Peel Hunt began coverage on shares of Boku (LON:BOKU) in a report issued on Tuesday. The brokerage set a "buy" rating and a GBX 105 ($1.42) price target on the stock. Peel Hunt's target price suggests a potential upside of 27.27% from the company's current price.Now question is : Will it be reached by end January 2018 or February 2018 ?
