pj 1: A 'Premium' I'm sure. But to what share price I am unsure. They must hold the world record along with SEE for the number of Placings?

the millipede: Just to be clear I am not against the placing. Quite the contrary, I am probably one of the few PIs who has been bit sceptical about the idea of prioritising “break even” over growth. I get that they need to become profitable at some point. But I think growth is important too and it needs funding..... I know there have been discussions in the past about whether the stock market is the best place for a firm like Cloudcall, but I for one am grateful they are here. And at the end of the day, any of us small fry investors could have picked these up cheaper in the very recent past. Institutions, on the other hand, buying presumably bigger numbers, were unlikely collectively to have been able to buy 10% of the company on the market at those low prices, because their initial buys would have seen the share price rocket..... I think, for them, £1.00 represents decent value, and hopefully they will see big profits soon.

the millipede: Liked the positive update and good to see the share price heading back up. Hopefully, the sales effort (and expense) is paying off and this is just the beginning......

140661: Some good posts today. As Horndean points out, management have failed to deliver consistently with one decent announcement followed by something less positive. This is why today's strong update has been somewhat ignored. Personally, I remain hopeful that management will deliver this time. If we were to value the shares on a 3x revenue multiple which I understand to be low for this type of business then the share price should be above 150p. In addition if one believed the positive message management are given about 2019 then revenues of £13/14m should be manageable in 2019 and the shares would be trading nearer 200p. It will be interesting to see how the shares react after Thursday's investor day, we might still be in for a spike in the price! GLAH

140661: The recent improvement in share price is some relief for long suffering shareholders but we have a long way to go before I am in profit! Despite all the false dawns I am remaining positive as I still believe there is a valuable business hiding here. The current valuation still looks very low for a SaaS business as evidenced by the recent take-over of New Voice Media (see my previous post). What I would like to see with next Tuesday's trading update is clear signs that the significant investment made by the company over the past year is now converting into much higher sales. In the interim announcement the Company made a lot of reference to the new sales teams and the new features they were introducing so this should now be coming through in sales/pipeline etc. If this is the case we could be in for a strong rise in the share price (its still 50% below the price of June 18). I am hopeful this will materialise as I can see very little reason why the Company would host an investor day next Thursday if they were going to announce disappointing figures. GLAH

140661: This note was put out in late September by Cenkos one of Cloudcalls brokers. At the time the shares were 111p, since then they have fallen over one-third! "Vonage has announced that it is acquiring one of CloudCall’s key competitors, NewVoiceMedia. This acquisition provides strongly favourable read-across valuation data. The CloudCall share price has now reached a level which is disconnected with anything approaching fair value. We are strong Buyers. . Vonage acquisition. Vonage has announced the acquisition of NewVoiceMedia (NVM) for $350m. The acquisition will assist Vonage in offering an integrated cloud communications platform and strengthen its position in the mid-market. NVM is an unquoted UK company with a significant international presence. NVM’s unified communications platform integrates only into salesforce.com and it is therefore a competitor in this partner only to CloudCall. Its market positioning is subtly different too with its focus being on larger scale call centre operations with prevalently inbound contact environments. . NewVoiceMedia. Headquartered in Basingstoke, we believe NVM has secured over $140m of funding in a series of financing rounds over the past few years. The most recently available accounts state that it generated an operating loss before taxation of £21.5m on revenues of £32.2m (+37% YoY) for the year to January 2017. . Comparable growth rates. The enterprise value paid for NewVoiceMedia represents approximately 3.8x projected 2019E revenues (source: Vonage). CloudCall has a comparable growth rate in revenues to NVM (H1A: +30% YoY). Applying a 3.8x EV/Sales multiple to CloudCall’s 2019E sales we arrive at a target price of 205p. This stands 83% above the current share price. . Unified solution. The strategic rationale of creating an end-to-end communications platform will not be confined to Vonage and this acquisition could well prompt further consolidation in the sector. CloudCall is trading on a 2019E EV/sales ratio of 2.1x only. We remain strong buyers."

140661: Copy of todays announcement shown below: Reading between the lines, I suspect its quite likely the company will be saying some fairly positive things about trading in the second half, otherwise why host such an event? You would have to be very sadistic and stupid to put on such event if the figures were going to be disappointing. Recent fall in the share price here looks massively over done. Its probably a great buying opportunity now, shame we have such bad market backdrop, but fortune favours the brave!

140661: The next section is written by Paul Scott, who owns CALL shares. Cloudcall (LON:CALL) · Share price: 134.5p (+2%) · No. of shares: 24 million · Market cap: £32 million Half-year trading update Somewhat belatedly, here are my comments, in response to reader requests above, on the Cloudcall (LON:CALL) trading update yesterday. I hold a long position in CALL shares. Firstly, it was clearly a profit warning, but a fairly mild one. The 2 brokers which report on CALL (both make their research available to subscribers of Research Tree) both put out updates, reducing 2018 revenue forecasts from c.£9.5m to c.£9.0m. One broker reduces its 2018 EBITDA loss from £2.4m to £3.1m, and the other reduces from a £1.9m EBITDA loss, to a £2.9m loss, so quite a significant drop in forecasts at the EBITDA level. What's gone wrong? The company says it's all down to timing of recruiting & training new sales people, which has taken longer than expected. It says there's not a problem with customer demand, they just didn't have the internal resource to bolt on new customers at the pace required. The brokers clearly believe that explanation, as they have not reduced revenues forecasts for 2019. The company also talks about expecting a strong H2 in 2018, as the new recruits kick in. If it all pans out as the company suggests, then the current share price weakness should prove negative. The trouble is that the company has proven somewhat accident-prone in the past (repeatedly missing targets, especially on cash burn), so investors are wise to take the company's outlook comments with a degree of scepticism. That doesn't make it a bad company, but I'm just pointing out that it tends to be overly optimistic, and then disappoints a bit. But that's within an overall picture of strongly growing revenues (which have risen organically from £3.3m just 3 years ago, to forecast c.£9m this year - that's very impressive growth). Organic growth - is still very impressive, as noted above. The market tends to put a significant premium on the price of any company delivering over, say 20% organic growth at the top line. CALL is still well above that, at +31% Y-on-Y revenues growth in H1 of 2018. That's still a very impressive growth rate, albeit below the previous forecast of c.39%. I don't think the company should be punished too hard for this. I like to look at not just year-on-year growth, but also sequential half year growth. This has been; H1 2017 £3.2m H2 2017 £3.7m (up 15.6% on previous half year) H1 2018 £4.1m (up 10.8% on previous half year) So there's been a slowing there, but still good growth. Note also that the company has sticky, recurring revenues - because its product is excellent (I use it myself). Cashflow is hence highly predictable, with customer receipts coming in regular as clockwork each month. Customer retention levels are high, because people find the product so useful. That's key for building a SaaS business. Gross margins are also very high - again a key point. Will it need more cash? Almost certainly, yes in my view. Does that matter? Not at all, in my view. There is no reason for shareholders to worry about another fundraising, because the company is well beyond the blue sky stage, when fundraisings are uncertain & can be done at deep discounts if investors are nervous. CloudCall's business model is now proven, and if it needs say another £3m to push it over the line into profitability, then that would only be about 10% dilution, and I reckon Instis would be queuing up to participate. Evidence for this is that the last placing raised £5.7m in late 2017, and was priced at 143.5p, only a 5.3% discount to the then share price of 151.5p. The only circumstances in which CALL would struggle to raise more equity, would be if the whole market turns bearish, and/or if CALL's revenue growth grinds to a halt. If that happens, then we'd be looking at a much lower share price, for sure. But that hasn't happened, hence why I think worries about another placing are wide of the mark. It's not a worry to me at all, for the reasons given. Note that the company has a track record of repeatedly stating that it will not need to raise more cash, and then going on to raise more cash! So the reassurances given in the latest update that it has adequate cash resources, and worthless in my view, given the history. But it doesn't actually matter either way. Is this a buying opportunity? That's obviously up to each individual to decide for themselves. I see this as a "good" profit warning - i.e. temporary, fixable problems, with the business model & growth story intact, just slightly blunted in H1. The share price recently peaked at 193p. So being able to buy at 135p today, seems an attractive proposition to me. I can understand emotions kicking in, and some investors' patience wearing thin, but taking a longer term view, this share could be worth substantially more, once you factor in a few more years' strong growth, and the eventual move into profit. Tech shares like this are not really valued on profits at the moment. The market is instead placing more emphasis on growth, with strong organic growth (combined with lots of operational gearing here, from high gross margin) should attract a premium rating. There are plenty of private equity buyers around, willing to pay eye-watering valuations for growth tech companies. I would welcome a takeover bid for CloudCall, providing the premium is sufficiently large. It doesn't sit well in the stock market, where people are too focused on short term performance. Whereas, the better option for a growth company is to set aside short term profitability, and instead "go for it" in terms of growth, which might mean incurring heavy losses in the short term. For stock market investors, CloudCall has been frustrating, in that the runway to profitability seems to be extended each year, by a year! The company is increasing its costs to take advantage of growth potential (and extending the features of its product), but with the time-lag inherent with that type of spending, it results in administrative costs relentlessly increasing, and absorbing the benefits of increased sales/gross margin. Hence why I don't think CALL should be listed on the stock market - it would be better off as a private company, and able to press on with faster, but more cash-consuming growth in the short term. Overall, I think that for investors who are prepared to be patient, then we should do well out of this one in the long-term. The current market cap is extremely low for a SaaS business that's not far off profitability. Just look at the valuation of LoopUp (LON:LOOP) to see what can be achieved in this sector.
