Shareprophet have this as their main event short. Citing cooked books among other things. They usually have an excellent short record. Long way for this to fall.

EzraM, any idea where Shakti will be operating from, or what its core offering will be? The landing page is not that clear. I see that Whitney set the company up in January - is there speculation that he has been setting things up in parallel?

The article was an update to myself I expected something like this but not so soon The underlying news is common knowledge in technology circles and posted widely on some closed forums

Ezram, I also have a negative view on this company but I’m in the dark as to why January is going to be particularly bad. Is there a particular aspect to this company that worries you? Is there an event that we should be aware of?

I’m not trying to create an association. If it appears that way, then I apologise. However, high receivables relative to sales is a red flag. And also, separately, blue chip customers are not proof that a company is entirely legit. I think those two statements are clear and i can’t see how they can be rationally disagrees with. As for what proportion of the receivables are trade or otherwise, in either case they have been booked to income and so it’s something of a moot point.

skatersav, Very well, but that's not what you wrote though, is it. (And are seemingly still trying to create an association...) I'll take the ultimate comment as well meant, as I'm sure you wouldn't resort to sarcasm. Whilst you popped in here after you discovered a short position (AIUI) I, for one, am happy to read your pertinent arguments.

No that's not correct. The £68m is not just trade receivables. Unfortunately for the interims we are not given a breakdown of receivables but my point is proved by looking at the annual accounts - the equivalent figure includes more than trade receivables as per note 20, things like accrued income, prepayments and grant income receivable which look reasonable to me (You think otherwise?) So your "4 months" is a completely meaningless number.

I see £68m at the half year. 58 current, 9.8 Long term. Vs 200m odd sales, on a ttm basis. That’s basically 4months. “Glayvay”; claimed that blue chip customers wouldn’t buy from a disreputable company (or something to that effect). I simply pointed out that Autonomy had blue chip customers... and similarly had large receivables.

Long term receivables - £6.279m are not going to be trade receivables. You can see this from note 32 where total trade receivables is stated as £40.911m gross with impairment of £2.982m giving the £38.2m mog quoted from note 20. The debtor position seems quite reasonable to me. Where does Autonomy come into this? I had a position in this for a number of years a while back. Starting to be interested again.

You’re missing long term receivables.

Trade receivables were £38m in 2018 out of £186m revenue so 2.5 months, reasonable to me. From the 2018 accounts notes "On larger contracts revenue is invoiced in line with the terms of the contract with revenue recognition occurring on client acceptance that non-refundable milestones have been achieved." We all have to decide whether to believe what we read, I don't see any more reason to disbelieve these people over anyone else running a public company.

Well, I was actually referring to Autonony, for which one exec is now in jail. However, I would note FD has a similar level of days sales outstanding (4 months). Good luck with this one, Glavey. You all really sound like you know what you’re taking about, so I’m sure it will work out for you. :)
