pugugly: Marker at 95/100p Looks interesting but appears to lack liquidity and wide spread. Like the margin but revenue to market cap seems high but gross margin and client retention excellent However very little data I can find at the moment as to how management generate new clients even after reading the recent Liberum and MF blog and listened to proactive - What am I missing? Any views on how GETB compare to other offerings in this space?
the ghost who walks: I agree with this, it's like teams but for their existing customers. I don't think it's trying to penetrate many new customers in isolation, but may be an additional selling point. I'm hoping for a strong 2021 for getb and the share price to motor well above 100p
mr doughnut1: I continue,Historically all GETB,s products take years to develop and initially have a slow uptake before gaining traction - hopefully the lockdowns will accelerate the speed of uptake of the app.
mr doughnut1: HNY ,all be it belatedly, to all GETB holders.These are only my opinionsIn 2020 we had the share capital reorganisation (Jan) and the completion of the £2 million loan facility to accelerate investment plans for smart vault (Dec).I have always who the get busy app is aimed at. It seems that there may be significant ability to cross sell the product to existing existing customers of virtual cabinet and smart vault. On the get busy website there are testimonials from the professions of accountancy, insolvency and law. I think the addition of the electronic signature was specifically added with these professions in mind and may have become more necessary in the lockdowns we have and are experiencing.
masurenguy: The Offer price is up 9%, from 75p to 82p, over the past 24 hours on miniscule volume. This just illustrates how illiquid this stock can be.
masurenguy: Yes, a very positive announcement. AGM Trading Update 5 May 2020 Year-to-date trading The new financial year has started well, with double digit revenue growth and a small Adjusted Profit* being generated in the first four months of the year (the “Period”). On a constant currency basis, recurring revenue and total revenue grew by 20% and 15% respectively in the Period. Recurring revenue represented 90% of the Group’s total revenue in the Period. For SmartVault, recurring revenue growth of 32% has been driven by a 36% increase in the value of new business, reflecting both strong market demand for cloud productivity products and improved sales and marketing execution. In March, we also launched our new VirtualVault product in limited private beta, aimed at the monetisation of SmartVault’s one million portal users by providing them with a personal secure digital vault for health, financial and asset-related documentation. For Virtual Cabinet, recurring revenue growth of 13% reflects the benefit of strong growth in 2019 and further improvements in revenue per user. Total revenue growth, as expected, was lower at 6% due to the reduction in non-recurring revenue as we continue the deliberate transition to a pure subscription revenue model. For GetBusy, marketing, channel development, sales and customer success teams are now in place for the GetBusy application and there has been encouraging progress with new and prospective customers. While revenue remains immaterial to the Group as a whole, paying user numbers have increased over 30% since early March and we continue to iterate and test the value proposition. COVID-19 update The health and wellbeing of our staff remains our highest priority, and we are pleased that the team continues to be healthy. Operationally, the transition to remote working has gone smoothly, with our wide use of cloud-based tools being a key enabler. The immediate impact on our customers has been mixed. Accountants and bookkeepers, which comprise about 60% of our revenue base, have a diversity of clients and so their financial health will be reliant on the constituents of their specific client base. We have no material direct exposure to the retail, leisure or transport industries. That said, there is an increased risk of customers churning or reducing licensed user numbers as they cut staffing levels, albeit we have yet to see significant examples of this. We have, however, seen some clear stretching of payment terms by customers in the UK, and some customers have asked to switch from our annual subscription plans to monthly-paid plans as their own cashflow has been challenged since the global lockdowns. Importantly, no single customer accounts for more than 1% of our recurring revenue, which helps mitigate risk. The landscape for new business has been more complex. Trade shows have been cancelled or postponed throughout the first half of the year, which impacts lead generation particularly in the UK. We are diverting some of the spend previously earmarked for trade shows to online lead generation. For SmartVault, demand from new customers has remained solid, albeit with monthly variations. The extension of US tax filing deadlines by 3 months from April until July may alter some of the usual seasonal buying behaviour for the US accounting market, although it is too early to determine the precise impact. For Virtual Cabinet, conversion of new customer leads, which often require an on-site installation, has slowed considerably since early March and as a result we have furloughed a small number of customer-facing staff who are unable currently to access client sites. However, we have seen reasonable levels of upsell to the existing customer base; for example, increasing the number of portal or mobile app licenses as more staff move to remote working. Working capital position Notwithstanding the Group’s strong start to the year, the Board has modelled a number of downside scenarios on revenue to ensure that there is sufficient working capital within the business going forward. The scenarios modelled include known additional cash receipts such as c. £0.7m of UK research and development tax credits, c. £0.4m from the US Paycheck Protection Program forgivable loan scheme, together with the benefit of payroll tax reductions under the Boosting Cashflow for Employers program in Australia and the support for furloughed staff under the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme in the UK. These receipts have been modelled together with forecast capital expenditures, overheads and a broad range of stretching of trade receivables from customers. As a result of this comprehensive scenario planning, the Board is confident that the Group’s balance sheet is sufficiently resilient to withstand the current crisis. Outlook The changes to people’s working lives over the last couple of months accelerate trends towards fully digitised, paperless work practices that our document management products enable. The surge in remote working requires a new software toolset for many organisations and each of our products is a component of that toolset. In the medium to longer term, therefore, we expect this situation to be a catalyst for significant growth in the market and we aim to capitalise on this growth. We remain confident that revenue and Adjusted Loss* for 2020 will be in line with market expectations of £13.8m and £(0.6)m respectively. * Adjusted Profit / (Loss) before Tax is Profit / Loss before share option costs, net capitalised development costs, finance costs that are not related to leases, and non-underlying items.
masurenguy: Looks like a good partnership which should accelerate GETB customer aquisition and growth 11 November 2019 GetBusy plc SmartVault channel agreement with TaxCalc GetBusy plc (AIM: GETB) ("GetBusy" or "the Company" or "the Group"), a developer of document management and communication software products, is pleased to announce that it has entered into a major reseller and integration agreement with Acorah Software Products Limited (which trades under the name "TaxCalc"), a leading UK supplier of practice management, client management and compliance software to accountants and tax advisers. Under the agreement, TaxCalc will become a non-exclusive reseller of the Group's SmartVault product to current and prospective TaxCalc customers in the UK and overseas. The Group and TaxCalc will jointly develop an integration between the two products and co-market the integrated product suite. With a 30-year heritage, TaxCalc has an installed base in excess of 8,000 accountancy practices and over 30,000 individual taxpayers across the United Kingdom.
hastings: For me, there is a lot to warm to with GETB's interim results and it isn't surprising to see that the share price has responded positively this morning from the recent depressed levels. Having caught up with both the CEO and CFO earlier I thought it worth putting something together, which may provide for some further flesh on the bones. I do intend to pen something for my Cambridge News slot, but as that is a week away, I'll add this here for interest. Perhaps the first area to home in on across the group is the Virtual Cabinet Business which CEO Rabie describes as highly cash generative and very profitable and which with a fixed cost base will see new business drop straight to the bottom line. Interestingly, in its extensive note this morning Liberum highlights that VC is actually worth more than the current group market value, which sees it citing, on the back of a robust outlook for the product, a bottom line valuation of 35p per share 5x adjusted pre-tax-profit rising to 70p on 10x. Whilst it is obviously fair to take the lower figure, given the positive forward outlook for this segment of the Group 35p arguably looks conservative. Both Rabie and Haworth were understandably pleased with the progress and sounded a confident tone going forward, Rabie pointing out that the smaller Smart Vault arm was now growing aggressively by clear leading indicators and scaling very quickly which will see the board continuing to invest for growth in what is essentially a fast growing business. Looking more closely at these parts of the group the lifetime value to customer acquisition cost ( LTV/CAC) ratio look impressive, where during the first half Smart Vault saw an overall 4:1 figure, although the number from the more mature US market was a highly impressive 8:1. (the immature UK market being the drag) But, Smart Vault's progression into the UK market is proceeding well as sales, marketing and consulting staff are now all in place. Both Rabie and Haworth see significant opportunities ahead, which brings us to the GetBusy app, which at present is the cash burner. Rabie says that they are very much focused on building and positioning the group for long term sustainable growth and profitability and GetBusy is a key part of that strategy, so they are very much eyeing the longer term. He adds that they are excited by its potential and it has the ability to generate significant revenues ahead. To date, it is currently in the public beta mode being available as an Ios app, macOs and windows app where it is being rapidly iterated on the back of user feedback and the analysis of behaviour. The first active users were acquired in H1 and the management believes that there is potentially really strong demand for such a solution. Rabie points out that the demand for the product is there, as it meets customer requirements and it is scaleable, so with the positive feedback received, they feel there is a significant opportunity ahead. The company is now actively moving to monetising the GetBusy app and if successful as hoped for could prove a real driver to the wider business. Of course, although the company is not awash with cash where the net position stood at £1.9m for the period end, watchers of the stock rightly wonder as to whether a placing is on the cards, particularly in light of the recent retrace. Haworth says that there are no plans over the next 12/18 months to undertake such a funding and they are comfortable enough at present where he adds they are extremely cash conscious. If the opportunity further down the line was to emerge, then they sound a confident note on gaining support from the likes of existing holders such as BGF and Herald, although Haworth also points out that they have other options further down the line which I suspect may be taking on some debt if they needed to. All in all GETB looks cheap to me for a software company with such a high level of recurring revenue, growth potential and (as yet unknown) the potential from the GetBusy app. Looking at the peer group enterprise value-to- sales GETB stands on a multiple of little more than 1.1x against the average 2.5x, so upside towards the brokers revised 56p target price (was 52p) looks achievable. Although the group overall will remain loss making during the next couple of years, it is possible that 2021 could see the delivery of break even or even a small profit, although that is merely my personal assumption. Liberum, in its note today, issued guidance for revenue for 2020 of £13.7m with a pre-tax loss of £0.4m. Within this mix VC is forecast to deliver revenue of £8.7m of which £7.8m is recurring with an adjusted pre-tax profit of £3.68m, demonstrating what a strong established product/brand it is. SV should deliver total 2020 revenue of £4.93m up from the £4.113m 2019 estimated number which will register a loss of £0.7m against the 2019 expected £1m. Not surprisingly there is nothing as yet pencilled in for the GetBusy product. Potential mergers or acquisitions are also possible with Haworth adding that they are always on the lookout for such targets that complement their existing products or open additional channels. But, they have to be attractively priced as he says they are quite picky, where as a result there has been nothing so far that meets their criteria. Lastly there are according to Haworth a number circa 3,500 shareholders across Australia and N.Zealand who inherited shares when the business de-merged. This he says has caused a bit of a drag with these overseas holders dripping shares into the market which is perhaps understandable given the geographical reach for such investors. As a result the board is looking at various options to resolve this issue to provide an exit for such holders.
astralvision: I note the proposed new incentive scheme will kick in at a higher share price level than the previous one, a sign of intent?'The existing scheme begins to accrue value to management at a share price above 37.9 pence per share. It is intended that the proposed new scheme, which would replace the existing scheme in its entirety for the executive directors, would increase the initial hurdle by over 21% but reward management more at higher share price levels. The proposed scheme would accordingly have a higher hurdle of 46 pence per share, some 67% above the three-month average trailing share price and 58% above the closing share price on 22 July 2019.'
