NEW THREAD ALL|
|Just spoken to EBTM, prices should be online this morning when the update has gone through.|
|thanks - i thought it would be that but ADVFN havent updated their feed yet so its showing as unknown company|
|up - Yes it's EBTM, unsurprisingly!
Is humphries1 still around to update the header, well totally change/revamp it actually, or is there another volunteer who knows what they're doing and is likely to be a long-term holder/interested party in EBTM?
(EDIT: Well I guess we need a new thread anyway, as this one would only be found via the ticker ERL, which is no longer appropriate of course.)|
|err, anyone know the new ticker ?|
|no nasty surpsrises which is good
'EBTM achieved strong month on month sales growth from launch until Christmas
and the number of registered users now stands at 37,729. In addition, although
the EBTM website only launched eight months ago, we are delighted to report that
we exceeded our sales targets in November and December 2005 and reached
operational breakeven in December, after only six months of trading. Sales since
Christmas have been slightly above our expectations and in line with the
anticipated seasonal trends"|
|Quite upbeat updating news today.

|I hope the management team have got more to talk about than we have|
|Thanks LB - your a star. Where do the figures come from re turnover and GP. i cant find them in the rns.|
|Good work LB and the profits?|
|Thanks LB -I have had a few shares but will not pile in properly until I have seen the ebtm figures. You said it is already profitable - where did you get this info ?what sort of money is it making.Is there a list of affiliates anywhere I have had alook and cant find any sites who they are fronting.
|Retail sales generally increased 1% in 2005 - online sales figures increased 29%. Co in great position to benefit from public trust in e retail particularly given the youth market.Only concern I have is what is to stop everyone else doing this - anyone can sell this stuff unless co has negotiated exclusive contracts .Anyone know if they have? Any google search will show at least 10 other sites already selling exactly the same stuff.Anyone?|
e-retail - SPECULATIVE BUY
Quentin Griffiths, co-founder and former director of online store ASOS, whose shares rocketed from 5p to 85p in 2004, believes similarly acronymic online retailer EBTM, which his e-retail company is buying in a reverse takeover, is 'as strong as ASOS'. He specifically points to a 'very strong sales curve since it launched', adding that 'it has got a very strong proposition'.
Griffiths brings the experience of building a similar business, after seeing sales rise from nothing to £7m in his four years as marketing director at ASOS. 'If you've not done it before the learning curve is very steep.'
EBTM sells 'music-inspired' fashion and accessories, including band t-shirts (from the Rolling Stones to Limp Bizkit), clothes 'in the style of' bands and fashion brands with close associations to music. Richard Breeden, EBTM's founder and chief executive of the new group, has 12 years' experience in the music and merchandise industries and claims 'no-one else is delivering the same concept'.
With illegal downloading increasing the penetration, and hence cultural influence, of music but supposedly damaging sales of CDs, Breeden maintains record companies and bands are looking to other areas to maintain revenues. He sees music as a 'key influencer of lifestyle in modern youth culture' and points out that UK fashion industry journal Drapers has identified 'a whole trend towards music fashion becoming the "big thing" in autumn 2006'.
As well as 21% of the shares, Breeden has further considerable incentive to succeed, with four million 'incentive warrants' exercisable at 4p if EBTM produces at least £516,000 pre-tax profits in the 12 months to either April 2007 or 2008. Griffiths informs 'we'll be putting out some numbers towards the end of the month', post the completion of the acquisition and EGM on 28 February.
At face value this looks like a very tempting investment.
|Growth Company Investor (GCI) have done a positive recommendation and write-up about e-retail:
(Note: GCI is a subscription based site but they seem to allow people to freely look at one or two pages per day before inviting you to subscribe, so make sure you read it fully first time you visit because they may not give you a second chance!)|
|5.5/7.0 is it any wonder nobody is buying or selling!
Time for the mm's to wake up. Get that spread narrowed PDQ.
6.1/6.4p might do the trick ;-)|
|Come on Mr Crab, tell the truth, you have shares in this village chippy don't you? Or are you the CEO?
Ramping your own chippy on the forum is a bit much you know?
You could be reported to the FSA for that.
(Thats the Financial Services Authority NOT the Fish Sellers Association!)|
|The ertail figures do not include anything for EBTM in the interim results....only eretail consultancy fees.|
|£23k turnover in 8 months at EBTM, my village chippy does that on wednesday nightes|
|Thanks uppompeii-at least that confirms that the "Foil" version is priced similar to ASOS. When I saw the £19 version I thought "Holy shoot!"|
