An IPO create great opportunity for venture capitalists and other investors to invest early through hxxps:// and earn profits within certain period. A company has an IPO to raise capital, and provide opportunities for secondary aid of shares in the outlook.
11 Dec, 2018 Home News and Announcements IP Group's portfolio company WaveOptics, which designs and manufactures diffractive waveguides for use in Augmented Reality (AR) wearables, has completed a £20m fundraising. The round was led by Octopus Ventures and supported by existing shareholders including IP Group, Robert Bosch Venture Capital and Gobi Partners as well as new investors Goertek and Optimas Capital Partners. Following completion of the first tranche of the financing round, IP Group's direct undiluted beneficial stake of 19.9% in WaveOptics is valued at £15.2m, which represents a direct unrealised fair value gain to of £7.6m. IP Group committed £3.7m to the fundraising. Robert Bahns, partner of technology at IP Group, said: "WaveOptics is making excellent progress and we believe the company has the best solution both from a commercial and technical standpoint for providing the key component in AR devices. This is being demonstrated by the level of engagement with its key customers." The funds will be used to scale up WaveOptics' operations on a national and international basis, as it builds a large volume manufacturing supply chain to meet customer demand from the Asian and US markets. The business is also investing in its overseas infrastructure having recently opened offices in Los Angeles and Taipei, with plans to open a new office in Beijing in 2019. IP said the funding round represents the largest AR hardware fundraise in Europe this year. "The company is in advanced discussions with potential new shareholders and strategic partners about a second stage investment," it said.
FLF news, unexpected but promising. If duçcessfully achieves gain it could change the world.
-- Oxford Nanopore completes GBP100m financing round in March, confirms orders of $23.5m in 2017 and signals 2018 order book to more than treble to $75m Alan Aubrey, Chief Executive of IP Group, said: "2017 was a significant year for the Company, with the combination of IP Group and Touchstone Innovations and the acquisition of Parkwalk Advisors helping to create a business with greater resources that is better equipped to find, invest and develop businesses based on science and technology. The signing of new partnerships in Australia and New Zealand extended our reach into new geographies while our capital raise not only strengthened our balance sheet but also saw the introduction of major new institutional investors. Overall, the underlying performance of the Group's enlarged portfolio was strong with a number of key milestones attained. The integration of Touchstone Innovations with IP Group is proceeding to plan and we are confident for the year ahead and beyond."
Question is - when will market conditions allow Oxford Nanopore to do an IPO?
Oxford Nanopore...the jewel in the crown
If it continues to fall like this long enough it will reach zero. Use your imagination, please.
Share is drifting on no news. The fact they never denied that report speaks volumes. See what happens. This could reach a pound if it continues to fall like this.
Interesting, but wrong! Good luck to you and yours.
My friend read an online report. Talk of Oxford Nanopore being worthless. Hence why they need the merger to help lessen the blow. Rumour that they will announce this in the year. Both my friends have dumped the share. Both likely taking losses. Not seen the report myself. I certainly won't be buying here any time soon. Way too much risk if that rumour is true. 1.2bn company they hold a stake in being worthless? 'The reality is that IP Group is just a black box with no transformative power, and its valuation of £1.50 per share is inflated by around 50%. Right now, the company faces the threat of a sharp devaluation of its principal asset. We believe the merger helps avoid the collapse of IP Group when its key portfolio company, Nanopore, is significantly written down or closed.' Yep was likely the article posted below they read. So true value of 75p a share? Not good!
Here's the link to the Seeking Alpha article: I've sold out.
Not in this but you should check out shareprophets as publishes the short note.
Excellen news on Autifony but not a peep on the PBB. A good sign. Autifony valuation may increase with NAV impact too, valuation is being audited.
Interesting Article on the seekingalpha website. I cannot share as its a subscription site.
Think this company needs to rethink why it exists - it pays no divi (understandable) but it's gone nowhere but down for a long time now. What's the point of holding it?!
any explanation for share price action?
That's just my axe to grind of course it's bloody frustrating watching nothing happen, nor perts no news retractions no FCA action and so on. I get why Tom Win sounds off so much. I know I'm right and the info was handed over on a plate.
AGM Still waiting on the FCA who have the details, not that I hear they are any good. They are only a drop in the far bigger ocean for the IP group but it's not good Imo the the chief investment officer backs a company that misleads the market. Surely IP should ditch them, there is no clear evidence the tech works commercially anyway. Check the share price since the FCA got the report which is bang on top of the dive starting. AGM will be up for funding again soon so what does it say if the IP group back them again. Something like 10 mill funding first time around and they didn't do what they said they would. Over £8m next time and still they didn't spend it on what they said. Near all of it has gone on salaries of highly paid numerous unneeded staff. IP should cut the umbilical cord Imo.
IVO have been doing a better job than IPO. IVO finals today. IPO look like chancers in comparison, something has gone wrong at IPO. If they do take-over IVO and it flounders, heads should roll. Thoughts?
Sg1,are you referencing AGM in the Graphene space or MWG? Valuations follow standard procedures.
This looks like a bubble as I've said before figures based on fair value and the market cap of companies. It looks like a false market because due to the heavy backing from the IP group to small companies it artificially inflates the share price of those heavily backed. If you like a solid fund with large holdings keeping the funding going. If they tried to sell up the fair values would capitulate and many of the rl;evenat companies would collapse. Is that about right. I have raised concerns about the chief investment officer who is sat in the board of one Aim company with the FCA. Clearly that company released false news (also reported) since I reported the company share price has dropped over 40%. So do IPO continue to back them and ignore the lies ??? No comment from the company, IPO, FCA or the nomad to date yet they all know about it. We'll see as the relevant company will need cash soon.
bb2, it should be the whole point of the company. Increasing the portfolio list whilst treading water on fund valuation smacks of misallocation of capital. "Throwing capital at the wall to see if some sticks" sort of thinking. Even I can do that and without awarding myself shed loads of stock options. Next set of results they would be amiss if they don't state clearly what strategy they have in place to offer shareholder return via exits, ipos etc. Buying another company to increase value is a blunt way to go about it and might not work if the share price performance since announcing it is anything to go by. Its even an admission of failure as they are saying IVO are the missing ingredient for growth. "Let me buy that which I don't have the skills to create." Have they given up trying?
p1nk, I had a look for II's holdings, but found nothing on the IPO website. My guess is that the share price will eventually settle at a discount to nav, which could mean future potential fund raises may be more tricky. If this is the case then they will have to get some of the constituents performing in their own right so that they can be sold off at a profit. Profit that can then be re-invested in new spin-outs. Surely this is the whole point of the co?
The major IVO shareholders are for the take-over but the market price action suggests the combined company will be worth no more, possibly less, than the separate entities. Some weakness is probably down to the market and cycle of potential exits for IP, IVO, but the weakness appears to have accelerated post the proposed take-over. Reversal is possible post acquisition but the market is voting with its feet and is often right. Are there any adults in the room at IPO?
