thelongandtheshortandthetall: In the long run. Entities like the London Bank will be problematical for Equals. They don't let true banks start very often do they. London Bank recently and another a couple of years ago. Before that it's been 250 years or something! According to that article I posted the other day. Another fear is that the old boy network might not let EQLS play along with the big numbers. Wondered if AFX are better connected, as an example. Just chit chat really. Edit: London Bank can buy EQLS in a year two if they like :)
the big fella: This is what they said "Over the last 12 months, following the Fund's intensive engagement at Equals Group plc ("Equals"), its share price has trebled. The business is now operationally cash positive, enjoying top line growth of 47% against the pre-Covid comparative period and ideally placed to benefit from industry consolidation. The Fund has introduced Equals to third parties that it believes will be able to specifically assist Equals in this regard." It can only be the uncertainty around the CRS holding that weighs on the share price. By all other metrics they are cheap as chips.
thelongandtheshortandthetall: 'A bit like gardening, buy a few small plants and look after them or wait till the day before the BBQ and pay a lot for mature blooms to impress your guests.' ^^ fantastic analogy MJ. Also EQLS have losses that I assume they can utilise to reduce tax.. for a bit. I reckon EQLS will qualify as a GARP and ZULU share before long and that'll be a decent catalyst for the share price and wider investor interest. Just a question of waiting and watering :)
melton john: LTINVEST, Not a catch but EQLS is less travelled along the starting up road than say AFX but catching up well IMHO. AFX has twice the turnover of EQLS but is over seven times the price and has a forward P/E of nearly 40 compared to EQLS 20. On the other hand AFX has a steady record of growing earnings while EQLS being younger, has a lot of expense and developement costs capitalised in the profit and loss thus reducing eps. Not to mention Covid costs as well. If you read the notes to the last annual results, it goes into detail without any jargon. So you buy a younger challenger or a more expensive but more established company. A bit like gardening, buy a few small plants and look after them or wait till the day before the BBQ and pay a lot for mature blooms to impress your guests. Comparison figures I got from Stockopedia summaries and these are a snapshop of published results and analysts estimates.
thelongandtheshortandthetall: The 3498 was actually a purchase. I know this.. coz I just bought em as a top up. The price disparity between Equals and AFX will close in time. AFX had the lead on the larger forward transactions. EQLS appear to be going in this direction and they have a decent suite of supplementary services for the SME too. AFX approximately 7x the price of EQLS. Just goes to show where EQLS are going IMO, now that the operational gearing of the business model is about to bear fruit :) ST said they'll update the markets early December. Looking forward to it!
qs99: thanks AISHAH v interesting....will SABA CM then look to offload EQLS stake in fire sale, OR look for a bidder for the entire business? Like Woodford debacle and collapsing share prices of his holdings, OR a value added approach to maximise value for SABA? Views?
aishah: Today's share magazine from their article on activists: AIM-quoted activist vehicle Crystal Amber(CRS:AIM) saw its share price slump between 2019 and 2020 and now it has been on the receiving end of a shareholder trying to shake things up. Saba Capital Management, which has a 25% stake, has said it plans to oppose the company at a continuation vote in November which means there is a good chance Crystal Amber could be wound up.

apad: "Asked about Revolut ST said B2B not core focus and they would find it hard to match functionality at top end of EQLS. Snide comment about them seeing B2B as a way to make money instead of losing it." Musing on ST's reaction I think Revolut is a more significant competitor than ST would like to admit. His constant repetition that the big banks are the competitors has the feel of a 'look at this' 'look at this' 'don't look at this' technique. Revolut is such a high-profile, big beast it has to be a significant problem for EQLS. My daughter works for a well-known, but not large, holiday company and it is, surprisingly, very resistant to change on both the software and currency front. EQLS has a difficult sales job on its hands and for me a key metric is the number of new companies as customers, not just the revenue increase which will rise because of increased activity, so could flatter one aspect of the sales figures. I've got a note of an rns due week commencing 11 Oct, which seems a bit previous in the context of excellent detail in the InvestorMeet presentation. GLA apad
redartbmud: Precis from the Rns on 06.01.21, when the share price was c32.26p International payments group Equals said on Wednesday that recent strong trading had continued, with full-year revenues now expected to come in ahead of market expectations. Equals anticipates that annual revenues will be around £1.0m ahead of market expectations at £29.0m, reflecting "a strong performance" in its business-to-business products in December, while adjusted underlying earnings were now expected to be roughly £1.0m, also comfortably ahead of market expectations. The AIM-listed group also stated it had "significantly reduced" its cost base, leading to both cash break-even and an increased cash position of £8.0m, excluding a £2.0m drawdown from Downing Street's coronavirus business interruption loan scheme. There has been a decent run up in the share price in the last couple of days. Where is the smart money positioned? Is it all in today's share price, or is that price over or understated relative to the 'forecast' from the company. Watch the fun unfold at 8.00am in the morning.
