Cliffpeat I'm going to respectfully disagree. I had a whine about the website at the AGM. Mainly on attention to detail. It's changed quite a bit since then. Note I'm a Web Developer (not designer nor digital marketer though). On the article they state: "Mr Green also heard of the crucial role IndigoVision played in assisting the authorities after the Brussels airport bombing and several other global trouble spots." And introduces CyberVigilant. Also mentions: "ADS Group is the UK trade organisation for the Aerospace, Defence, Security and Space sectors." So someone new to IND may see this page and realise this is not a second rate outfit. Establishes credibility as a serious security industry player. Showing people is important. Humanising a business helps enormously, trusting people is vital. So why not include the marketing person. She'll be dealing with customers/partners to a degree - although perhaps Head of Sales would be better. Probably not available on the day. All cameras, NVRs or security screens on walls look the same. The video referred to is excellent I think. Lots of clever visual ideas explaining key advantages. And the 'Hero Image' - the big pic or video at the top of a home page - is very good too. Playing on the fear of being hacked in a clever way. The Ad exists due to the use of Youtube. Putting videos on Youtube is important as it is the 2nd most used search engine. Although they should probably have an embedded video for the site AND a youtube version. But there may be Search benefits by using the youtube version. Hard to tell for sure. I think I saw the video with Brazenhall. I can see what you mean, but I thought he came across as natural and approachable. A US company would have someone coached to caricature. "HI, I'M BRAD AND WE SELL THE MOST AWESOME KIT THAT WILL REVOLUTIONISE YOUR LIFE....". Unbearable. But perhaps he would appear lacking in confidence compared to Brad for the US audience. The exhibition installation looked amazing. And appeared to dominate the room (what could be seen in the background). I don't think the web and exhibition stuff is bad at all. Although I remain mystified as to why IND don't dominate the high to mid end of the industry.
I agree with much of what Futureshock3000 has said in 3857/8 and 3860. IND desperately needs professional marketing skills and support. Article: hTTps:// " ....the soon to be released cyber-security technology, CyberVigilant® which has been described as a ‘game changer’ due to its ability to detect and monitor cyber-threats within security systems." A few points: 1. The article reads like a standard puff piece and in my view is "uninspired". 2. The photo-op with Damien Green has no product context or eye candy. Again it seems no creative skill is being applied. And to cap it all one of the five in the photo is Hayley Paterson, Senior Global Marketing Executive. Oh dear!! 3. The videos are poor. e.g. (a) Web front page "Solution overview" has a 3rd party pop-up advert !!" If I was a commissioning supply executive for a serious potential customer I would be most unimpressed. (b) Interviewees need training. Brazenhall interviewed at IFSEC 2017 seems like a nice guy but from a business point of view quite appalling (sorry to personalise but this is a publicly owned company that has been struggling in a highly professionalised market"). My guess (as a long term disappointed holder) is that the boffins, engineers and inventors are being sadly let down by the management. I doubt they read ADVFN or care what we think - but perhaps they should. Al pretty subjective and personal opinion - make up your own minds.
@exotic Apart from buying back shares - at the lowest possible rate- I'm not sure what value IndigoVision has added since the annual results were published? Product releases seem to be inconsequential with what appears to be minor updates or revisions to existing products. Nothing revolutionary, not even the interesting Cybervigilant product has been mentioned again in their news. Overall The IndigoVision news feed seems to be missing any 'thought leadership' articles, instead we're treated to another minor project win in South America. . I was hoping to see some American success stories by now, especially as the CEO has mentioned it has been a focus market for the past 2-3 years. It also doesn't seem to be the investor market that's seeing IndigoVision in the doldrums. Looking at IV's YouTube channel has seen a worrying drop in video views. 2 years ago videos were getting between 3-4 thousand views. In the past 12 months most videos get 300-400 views. I understand that products take time to sell due to IV's lengthy project timescales, but if the products from 2 years ago failed to deliver the results the market expected, what do we expect from videos that are getting 1/10 the number of viewers? IV's half year finished in June, so I'm presuming they're in track. But while there's guesswork involved, buyers will stay away and keep the price down- which does benefit IV's share buyback plan as it the price is lower, while current investors lose out. Maybe expect an exit through management buyout?
So much for adding value!
Another issue with the IV Investor section of the website, again highlighting (in my opinion) the inability to communicate effectively with the investor community. If you dig around in the Reports & Announcements, you'll see this update on June 6th: hxxps:// "IndigoVision Group plc (AIM: IND), is pleased to announce the appointment of Max Thowless-Reeves as a non-executive director, with effect from 1 June 2017. Max is a partner in Multi-family Office Sorbus Partners LLP." Yet, no mention of Max Thowless-Reeves on the Board of Directors page: hxxp:// Are haphazard and inconsistent updates a worrying indication of what's going on behind the scenes?
Then again, the investor relations for IV are, to be frank, woeful. AThe bare minimum updates plus the Ivestor section if the Website is out of date. Are IV breaking the law with some incorrect information? For example, under the Shareholder section, they still state that Richard Farmiloe owns 6.57%, which if you read other parts of the investor section of the website, it's clearly not the case. hxxp:// There also appears to be no updates on upcoming events, I.e. when the half year results are published. The calendar of events states the next update is March 2017 when the annual results are released. Likewise finding out the details of the AGM were almost impossible. I don't know who in IV is ultimately responsible for the investor section of the website (CFO? CEO?), but the updates and information have gone downhill in recent months. It's worrying that a technology focused company can't do something simple like update their website. Does the unstable share value come from a lack of investor confidence, which in turn comes from poor investor relations? For example, where are the AGM presentations on IV's investor website? Why do investors have to rely on updates on forums from those that managed to get to the AGM? Again, worrying that a video technology company can't broadcast the AGM online. If the camera technology was so good, why not use IV's tech to stream the AGM? I had hoped the new chairman will change investor relations, but so far there may have been a change in chairman but there appears to be no difference in how IV communicates to its shareholders. And while there's poor communication to the investor community, I don't see how one could invest with any confidence in return on investment.
share price is still falling...Richard Farmiloe still selling his holding? I wonder how many he has got left?
Its clear that richard farmiloe is an ongoing seller. He had sold from 500k shares down to 375k and he is still selling. Once he clears it will move up strongly I suggest.
Drifted lower for no reason. Just bought more at a good price. Thank you mr market?
Unfortunately the share buy back doesnt seem to be holding the share price up at the moment.
I'm surprised nobody has mentioned the appointment of Max Thowless-Reeves as a Non Exec Board member. In the fact that he's a founding partner of Sorbus Partners LLP, the same Sorbus Partners LLP that owns 6% of IV and who Richard Winston Farmiloe is also a partner of (and personally owns 6% of IV). hxxps:// So Sorbus now own 12% of IV and a place on the board. Sounds to me that Sorbus are now looking to get a better return on their investment. Hopefully this means the CEO being made to actually hit sales (and importantly profit) targets and finally deliver some return on his $250k a year salary. That's an eye-watering total investment of $1.25 million salary (not including additional benefits) for the CEO's last 5 years in charge. That's surely a record salary for a Scottish technology company, particularly one that has barely increased market cap when you remove the recent share buy back scheme.
Many thanks folks.
JayKayTee Number of shares on market goes down so market cap per share goes up. Cash goes down (spent on those shares) so market cap should go down. Net effect is that market cap per share is unaffected so theoretically the share price will not change. exotic has explained why the share price has actually fallen.
Almost certainly because there are still more sellers than buyers. Looking at the chart, it's likely many investors were under water for a few years and now jumping at the chance to escape around break-even, and not necessarily being aware of the reasons for the rise.
Excuse my ignorance, but could someone explain to me why, if IND are currently buying up their own shares, the share price has actually dropped over the past 2 days ?
IND mopped up 50,000 @ 273p yesterday at 3:33pm.
I do hope so, they took 10k on Friday and should be able to buy up to about 275p today. There is not much point of them being cautious in the level they buyback within the 105% limit. The point of a buyback is both buying below intrinsic value so that the long term value of dividends & capital returns to existing holders are enhanced but also to provide liquidity and therefore encourage more accurate price discovery.
To answer your question look at the evidence. So far they have bought 10K @ 260p on 9/6. If you look at the trades for that day you will see 10K @ 260p at 09 01.
Are they are buying 'buyback' shares on the open market?
Interesting that Grossart happy to buy more @260p despite retiring from the board. Normally retiring directors look to reduce their holdings not add. That combined with the potential for the buyback to kick in suggests there may be more to go here.
Director Buys @ £2.60 Hamish Grossart £13,000 (For his SIPP) Chris Lea £13,000 Martin Pengelley £5,200 (For his wife)
The appointment of a numbers man as new chair was predictable and probably sound - the new NED may bring some challenging ideas to the rather elderly board. I still think that the lack of a strong marketing/sales director is disappointing (and needed). The RNS says about the new chair, George Elliott, he will guide the executive team in "...unlocking the value potential built within IndigoVision ...". Good. I'm still underwater but holding for now. DYOR
I'd be surprised if they dont continue the buyback until the cash is exhausted. I'd be surprised if they did continue the buyback until the cash was exhausted. The buyback programme is for a maximum of 375k shares - at the current share price, those will cost under a million quid, and they had 6.2 million as of the final results! Of course, it might happen if the share price rose enough - in which case I would be both surprised and delighted! :-) One other thing to note is that with the price they pay to buy shares being limited to no more than 105% of the average market price in the preceding 5 trading days, they'll automatically be forced to pause any time that the market price jumps up significantly. For instance, it's no surprise that they haven't announced any shares actually being bought back yet, since the share price jumped up significantly merely on announcement of the buyback programme.
