_m_k: My chapter and verse for the benefit of those that could not attend today. My language isn't great as rushed out whilst still in the head. bod: david + jim + stephen + jonathan formal business then open to general chat all bod pitching in as and when, plenty of time given for questions cordial but frank discssion at times high points: - reaction from potential clients to what forbidden has is still 'magic' / 'unique' - opportunities include provision of access to content in cloud + live engagement - still technically in a good position wrt competition and progress in this regard is relentless - believes licensing offers best route to scaling business main gripes: - newsflow concerning activities has dried up - revenue growth (no points for that one!) after the main event did manage to see demo of eva live streaming from a phone into the cloud. could have multiple streams all feeding in. clearly the technology development invested in eva/captevate lives on. i got the impression of lots going on but that this is, for one reason or another, is obviously not making its way out into the public domain. in the absence of this BBs like this fill in with speculation. especially with the licensing work i cannot see this changing much however I do hope the firm is able to encourage clients to share the success stories e.g. of the kind we had with the sony wifi camera proof of concept. it might not have flown but it showed the firm working with a leading brand doing some fairly cutting edge stuff, and leaves viewer with a good impression of the company imo. here are my notes reflecting the discussion points and responses, comes with no guarantees regarding accuracy! nickb i didn't ask your question directly but point 15 did shed some light on it, the firm stated it is focussing on busienss that can scale and that implied to me selling to individuals (even if professional) is probably going to rank lower than other priorities at present. 1 share price where will share price be in 12m? ------------- bod cannot give share price predictions! 2 slower conversion rate? concern over statement, does it refer to bbc poc? ------------- no appetite for painting a distored view decisions relate to larger opportunities but longer timescales board remain confident 3 deferred what does deferred mean? ------------- cannot book all the revenue now so it is recognised over time e.g. three years to some degree there is a risk of non-payment however historically bad debts not issue 4 delatre is this a new deal? ------------- yes i.e. additional to existing arrangement 5 licensing what does it mean in practice? ------------- pertains to discussions on installing parts of elements of forbidden's technology package into as part of another software solution for example might be forscene platform or just the codec or the viewer in the form of a derivitive of captevate licencee might have multiple clients 6 licensing pricing model is there one? ------------- each will be unique to the player involved at present 7 poc any newsflow on poc? ------------- not able to give out a huge amount part of the reason is the client restructured poc at client site does now have a wider audience 8 ceo when will they start? ------------- still looking at candidates could be up to 3 months will depend on their present contractual situation aziz did handover but was appropriate to leave when did 9 valuations / cash flow big discussion on valuations, metrics as a means to assist this, raising of profile in city, concern over issuing at low prices and dilution effect ------------- too much detail to note down, in summary firm confirmed not in a position to provide forecasts at present advisors / pr took some flack e.g. research not up to date 10 eva and captevate what is their fate, seems good tech, can it be monetised? ------------- these developments are not end of life, they are just not a focus now (b2b) still a working solution available online and will remain so parts will be reused as and when appropriate e.g. live upload from app into an editing client (e.g. sports interest for engagement, less conservative than post industry) java script codebase of captevate very well received, lots of interest consumer apps require big resources, point was made that snapshat etc were all startups countered that there are thousands of these startups and only a very few make it, luck also playing a factor mobile capture (using camera on device, upload) and live content seen as key elements going forward some mobile pilots in flight about 0.5m gbp spend on development of consumer tech on the books as an asset on which revenue generation will be booked 11 future ------------- 80% of cloud data will be video mostly sits there gathering dust unless there are effective tools that make this accessible might be sitting in a range of formats in a range of different locations forscene can draw all this together and provide a layer to access it consistently 12 competition amazon... google m$ adobe apple avid - are they competition or customer? ------------- potentially both on a competition basis, forscene has unique ability to marry hi res and proxy versions others stake claim to this but not true cloud backing their model requires big investment in their infrastructure which customers reluctant to do 13 uk versus us bread and butter revenues in uk, progress in replicating uk post production success in us? ------------- about 60% penetration in uk, room for growth still which uk sales director will address us slightly different, larger deals longer timescales and more a licensing focus i.e. not necessarily logging, reviewing, rough cut as in uk post saves money but only a part of the workflow in us looking for larger deals and licensing and to become a more fundamental part of workflow (e.g. live workflows) 14 profile ------------- want to work up value chain to become more fundamental to what client does wrt live and mobile post is good but platform becoming a more critical component of a workflow will be better 15 staffing ------------- new uk sales director new post responsible for sales outside uk and us to focus on sales and improve pr working on building visibility where think can deliver scale NOT small sales 16 tech licensing ------------- many clients have legacy systems, facilitating access to content been a shift in the business environment lots of firms traditionally selling kit are struggling; grass valley, evs, sony... industry looking more to software only solutions, clients wanting to shift to opex model forscene strong here, in a position to sell components of their tech via other solution providers opportunity to achieve bigger scale 17 nab why not have own stand? ------------- team of around six attended from firm on some fairly heavyweight stands, presence there deemed to be more effective versus own stand own stand as it is 1 very expensive and 2 able to spend more time in prebooked meetings rather than manning stands (servincing 'tyre kicking') name is now out there, conversion rate versus spend on own stand questionable 18 blackbird 9 what does the AI refer to? ------------- codec a significant upgrade, includes 'learning algorithms' (AI) adapts to content of video with the upshot of reducing the data rate

cabi1: Well I've taken full advantage of the low share price over last few weeks. I've managed to roll 3/4 of my position into me and the Mrs ISA. Cost me, but spread has been quite tight, so cost a lot less than I thought. All I nead now is for share price to take off again, and I'll be laughing. Hopefully there will be some positive feed back from AGM. Unfortunately can't make it, as got to pick up my son from Uni.

gnnmartin: The Apple/IMG news gives me food for thought. I read in the FT (Lombard) that Apple made an approach to IMG with a view to purchase last year, and presumably were told no (and/or did not make a compelling offer). It suggests a new careful Apple less ready to splash its money around than we have become used to seeing in California. Apple's announcement has cut 60% off IMG (75% at one point). Apple don't have to work hard to trash FBTs share price if they are thinking of buying it. And Apple saying that they are building a graphics chip from scratch without using any IMG IP, in spite of having used IMGs IP for years, and in spite of hiring lots of IMG engineers, and while declining to explain how they have managed to avoid IMGs IP all make me glad that FBT has mentioned that they expect others beside Apple to be interested in buying them, should it come to that. I don't fancy FBTs chances of protesting successfully if Apple decide to build there own cloud based editor which just happens to have the capability of FBTs.

nick2412: I was a bit disappointed the POC contract wasn't mentioned in the results. I have been in companies where important agreements have lapsed and the market hasn't been informed. This POC agreement was highlighted by Aziz as "potentially the most significant" deal FBT has signed. On that basis alone there should have been a reference to it in the results. So I contacted both the pr company and FBT and have had confirmation direct from the Finance Director that "the POC contract is continuing and will not complete until 30th April." It wasn't referenced because there was "no update to give" in other words it is as we were in the last update at the funding in December. To slightly adjust a well known phrase from elections past ... "I disagree with Nick". I think this deal is important. A resulting commercial deal collaborating with Apple providing cost savings for the BBC will multiply the share price from current levels I suspect. Aziz implied that as long as cost savings were proven the POC would progress to a commercial deal and rolled out into "different departments of the 'broadcaster'. The results were solid if unspectacular and there is enough cash for about three years without additional growth. To be honest I'm not invested to see if FBT can breakeven in a year or two. I'm invested because one of the major players is possibly either going to partner or take over the Company. Apple, it appears, is already collaborating but as yet not on a commercial deal. If the POC becomes commercial then that's when things should take off. Schroders leaving the scene will also be a help. Hopefully FBT can get a good new CEO soon and one of his or her first tasks will be to turn the POC deal into a transformational commercial contract. I assume as Aziz resigned he will not be getting a pay off beyond his leaving date.

cabi1: Well this shows how undervalued the FBT share price is. Looks like people are waiting for news to get this to break through 13p. However I believe we should break through now, just on speculation alone. IMHO.

gnnmartin: I've not been reading al the posts here (too many), so sorry if this has already been posted. Oracle are making a huge push into IaaS: ie providing the hardware part of the cloud. Perhaps that was responsible for the sudden surge in the FBT share price. hTTp://diginomica.com/2016/09/18/oracle-cto-larry-ellison-goes-after-amazon-with-huge-iaas-push-does-it-make-sense/

cabi1: I wouldn't read much into it. They could be shifting it, because they have been told to tidy up their books for some reason. They will know as much as us, with regards what the future holds for FBT share price. If they did know something, and were selling stock, then they will be in lots of trouble. I'm very happy with my investment, and think FBT has a great future. Loads of news to come in coming months with Apple/BBC, and RTL etc etc. IMHO.

cabi1: Bonio. Agreed. FBT are hardly a multinational company earning millions of dollars and euros. In or out of Europe won't impact FBT share price. We need deals, and positive updates. At least the flippers have got no profits to flip now. Lol.

bonio10000: That's it - the FBT share price is down to the vote. Not the 13m shares hanging around and the lack of deals post notice of the fund raising. How stupid of me.
