Micro cap Toople (TOOP) are also aiming for 5% of the UK SME market within 3 to 5 years. Currently just a market cap of £3m, if Toople are taken over for £504m like KCom they would be a 168 bagger from here. That figure increases another 40% if you use Daisy as the comparator. Buy Toople.

Interesting to see the difference between stock market "valuation" of a telco and what someone is prepared to pay to own the same company. haha, hoping the same philosophy will apply to TALK one day

Great news and suggest small teleocoms company Toople (TOOP) could be next. KCOM today agreed to be taken over for a cash offer of £504m (a 33.8 % premium to yesterday's closing price). hTTps://uk.advfn.com/stock-market/london/kcom-KCOM/share-news/Universities-Superannuation-Scheme-Recommended-Cas/79755406 https://uk.advfn.com/stock-market/london/kcom-KCOM/share-news/KCOM-Agrees-To-GBP504-Million-Takeover-By-Universi/79755712 KCOM has 5% of the UK SME market and as TOOP are also targeting at least 5%, it thus gives a baseline takeout price for TOOP if they can get anywhere near a similar market share and TOOP's CEO has often cited KCOM in presentations for comparison purposes. TOOP a potential 195x bagger from here!! N.B. TOOP market cap at 0.27p = £2.58m £504m (KCOM takeover price) / £2.58m (TOOP market cap @ 0.27p) = 195x bagger TOOP target price = 195 x 0.27p = at least 52.6p

Virgin like a bargain. They were looking at buying Flybe for pennies. KCOM are too good and don't need to accept a low offer IMO. Another interesting Telecoms play is the minnow Toople. They are now fully funded through to cash generation. GLA If you are interested: 2/12/2018 - 5 Reasons to add Toople to your Watchlist - hTTps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mrn7W3csH0U

Half-year Report KCOM Group PLC (KCOM.L) announces its unaudited interim results for the six months ended 30 September 2018. Summary · Group revenue1 declined by 5% · Group EBITDA1 up by 2% · Hull & East Yorkshire continues to perform well and in line with market expectations ― Full-fibre deployment remains on target to be available to 100% of addressable market by March 2019 ― Percentage of broadband customers taking full-fibre continues to increase · Poor performance in national business segments driven by: ― Revenue decline in NNS, due to continuing churn ― Broadly flat revenue in Enterprise reflecting disappointing order intake performance · NNS performance results in non-cash exceptional impairment of goodwill of £32.2 million · Increase in net debt to £108.5 million (1.6x net debt: EBITDA), driven by: ― Capital investment in Hull & East Yorkshire segment ― Material working capital outflow, due to insourcing a managed service arrangement and unwind of deferred revenue balances in Enterprise · Interim dividend of 1.00p (2017: 2.00p), reflecting Board's previously announced decision to revise full year dividend commitment to a minimum of 3.00p per share Graham Sutherland, Chief Executive Officer said, "Despite only joining the business last month, I believe KCOM has considerable skills, assets and capabilities. The full fibre rollout in Hull and East Yorkshire leads the market, provides us with sustainable cash flows and enables the further development of our service offering. However, the current financial performance of our two national businesses is below our expectations, in particular, in National Network Services where we are experiencing high levels of customer churn. In the second half of the year, we will focus on three key priorities - review of our business strategy to identify how we create the best value from KCOM's assets, implementing initiatives to improve business performance and improving transparency through clear metrics on which our progress can be measured. We will be in a position to share outputs from the strategic review in March." Outlook The strong performance in Hull & East Yorkshire is expected to continue during the second half of the year, supported in part by the launch in early December of a new unlimited fibre broadband portfolio for consumer customers. While we have started to take action to address some of the issues in our national segments, we anticipate that the trading performance in Enterprise and National Network Services will remain challenging during the second half of the year and that this will continue into next year. As a business, we are seeking to address these medium-term challenges by reducing cost and complexity at the same time as identifying those opportunities to deliver value from KCOM's assets. The Board believes that the Group has the potential to execute well on those opportunities. The Board previously announced its intention to recommend a minimum full year dividend of 3.00p per share for the current year. more.....
