jaknife: "The broker’s note was pretty clear on their valuation made when the price was above 70p." There is no point listening to brokers who are paid by the client to say positive things about the client. The question is whether or not you can make up your own mind and reconcile the numbers that you think are right with the current market cap of £28m. For example, even *IF* you think that your numbers are correct of: Turnover £6.555m EBITDA £1.108m Then that puts the business on a forward price to sales ratio of 4.3 and a forward EV to EBITDA of 25!!!! LVCG's industry peer group trades on a PSR of between 0.5 to 2 and an average EV/EBITDA of about 8.3, Thus LVCG is easily about 3 times too high a price. If the share price fell by 66% then it would be trading on similar multiples to the rest of the market and hence would be the right price according to YOUR (broker's) forecasts. And FWIW, my personal forecasts are lower. If you listen then in time you might learn. But you will learn nothing by listening to brokers who are paid by the company to say nice things about the company. They are not paid to tell you cold hard truths. JakNife

gingernut1: MisterMD, you are entitled to your opinion, but whatever that opinion is, it certainly isn’t humble. The broker’s note was pretty clear on their valuation made when the price was above 70p. Valuation Live Company represents an attractive investment opportunity in our view, given its IP generation, which has widespread appeal to both children and adults, attractive EBITDA margins and international growth prospects. The ability to generate high margin rental streams from its touring assets, with their short pay-back periods, complements the expanding portfolio of live events and shows. With both operating under the common BRICKLIVE brand, along with other complementary developments under the same BRICKLIVE umbrella, Live Company Group is building a strong brand equity. While this offers potential good returns to institutional (and private) investors, it could also prove attractive to a trade buyer, albeit more over the mediu m- term in our view when a track record of rising profitability becomes more established. It would be particularly attractive in our view to a larger company, whose strengths lie more in executional roll-out and value extraction rather than brand development. Valuation conclusion On the basis of our compco valuation analysis, we believe an appropriate valuation range on a one year view for Live Company is 73p – 89p. The lower end of this range is based on the average of the FY21E implied valuations, including the drag effect of the EV/sales metric. This underpins the shares and their future prospects on a similar relative valuation to the compco group, and suggests downside risk should be limited from their current trading level. The top end of our valuation range is pitched at the upper end of the FY21E valuations. We believe that newsflow on new business gains, with existing or new clients, will be viewed positively by the market, as it will increase investor confidence and reduce perceived risk relative to future earning s. This in turn could push the shares towards or indeed through the 100p level, reflecting the valuations implied by the application of the FY21E metrics of our selected high growth compco sub-group. Conversely, negative newsflow could have an adverse impact on sentiment and share price with downside risk below our valuation range.

gingernut1: There’s nothing false about the info I’m posting mate, either about you or lvcg. Anyone actually invested can find the info for themselves. The only thing they need to be wary of is the desperate jibberish you keep posting. IG has a couple of short positions open, it’s pretty obvious who holds them, but anyone opening a short position at the low point in a share price cycle is pretty dense as you have already shown. And if you are working on behalf of someone else who is trying to drive the price down then I hope they get their money back as you are not the sharpest tool in the box. Lvcg has gone from strength to strength over the last 2 years and has reached the point of being able to host 6 simultaneous events around the globe. It’s signed partnership and IP deals with world class companies like nickelodeon. And it’s poised to hit its financial targets and make a maiden profit this year. Turnover £6.555m a 23% increase Gross Profit £4.235m with a 64.6% gross margin EBITDA £1.108m Operating Profit £0.538m Beyond that, with over 850 models and 16 touring sets already built and paid for, the profit will keep layering up from here. Anyone listening to the Chairman on the last podcast will hear that they are going to increase exponentially next year.

gingernut1: Months and months later from when you said they needed cash and that a placing was coming the company seem to be doing just fine. They have delivered on their “mad October” where they had 6 x bricklive events around the globe, and all the indications are that all of those shows were a success. Indeed the Birmingham event had record numbers attending. The business always articulated that revenue was weighted towards H2. As to progress, they announced the partnership with penguin ventures on 3 Sep and just tow months later they have completed 2 x builds of snowman and Snowdog touring sets and have rented them out to Balham Zoo and whiteroseleeds over the festive period (8 and 6 week rentals respectively). They have also rented out the pawpatrol set again to Birmingham for the German Christmas markets, another 8 week rental. So these boys don’t hang about either. Progress being made with the USA too now that they have advertised 9 x sets for rental, which is double the original number. Time to close your short now that the share price retraced a little, otherwise it could get really expensive for you.

gingernut1: Mate, you seem to be 100% invested in nothing, except perhaps IGG where you said Mister MD - 19 Sep 2019 - 08:40:16 - 2339 of 2399 IG Group - IGG slowly creeping up? I see more of a rocket ;) Share price when you said it 638p, shareprice today 614p. Called that one right 🤣🤣🤣🤣 Just like you called it right with Thomas cook 🤣🤣🤣🤣 9315; And like your short position here opened at 41p or below. That must be hurting mate. Time to give it up before you get burnt

gingernut1: Literally wetting myself with laughter 🤣🤣🤣🤣 9315;🤣 And as to “LVCG will need a placing” Is the same misleading nonsense that you have been sprouting for months now. yet their cash position is INCREASING since the H1 results were published. That means it’s going up not down mate. Anyone doing the most basic research will know they don’t need cash and that was confirmed at the investors call at the beginning of this month. Were you there? Of course not, stupid question as you are not invested. Sweating this weekend by the looks of it. What sort of idiot opens a short at the lowest share price in 20 months when the business are making such growth. A soon to be poor one 👍

carcosa: Seems as though those Vendors are not so stupid. They have LVCG over a barrel. As I and others have stated the company has no cash. Indeed they are relying on director loans, stopping taking cash out of the company against personal property rents.. Having orders and revenues does not translate into hard cash for now. They have, at best, to get to the end of the year before making headway In an earlier post when the HY results were issued I said "..certainly explains why the deferred consideration will be paid by shares (almost certainly at a discount). A further fund raise at this stage would trash the share price so if the H2 performance materialises then, with a hopefully higher share price, a fund raise will be on the cards when the prelims are issued." So now, the vendors have seemingly told LVCG they want cash because LVCG shares are worth nothing like the current share price so LVCG have the following options: 1) Raise further cash. At what discount to the share price and how much dilution? 2) Do a placing aka Directors selling shares to pay the vendors in cash. 3) Management coming up with some sort of guarantee that the Vendors interest in shares will be protected, say until H1 next year - Not sure that would be legal 4) Take on more debt to pay the Vendors; but will cashflows support the financing? 5) Renegotiate the deferred consideration to include more shares at a later date (would the vendors trust management can deliver??) 6) Convince vendors that by year end they will have the cash to get paid Option 6 seems the most practical, supported with Director loans if necessary. What does seem apparent is that retail investors have failed to recognise the near term risks and are focusing on the longer term outcome. That's all well and good if you trust management.

gingernut1: Page 49 of the brokers note highlights them pretty well, which you would know if you did any actual research instead of bringing your 3 year old grudge onto a public bulletin board. Valuation conclusion On the basis of our compco valuation analysis, we believe an appropriate valuation range on a one year view for Live Company is 73p – 89p. The lower end of this range is based on the average of the FY21E implied valuations, including the drag effect of the EV/sales metric. This underpins the shares and their future prospects on a similar relative valuation to the compco group, and suggests downside risk should be limited from their current trading level.

Conversely, negative newsflow could have an adverse impact on sentiment and share price with downside risk below our valuation range. For emphasis “downside risk should be limited from their current trading level” which was around 65 to 70p at the time of publication. No doubt you will say its sunk since them, but part of that is down to Milton selling off their holdings across the board on AIM shares.Always one of the problems with shares that have a low free float. Equally a low free float means that this will move extremely fast when the wider market realises the incredible growth. All the long term holder have been adding to their portfolio recently as they realise that the current share price is a gift at this level. But if you don’t like the company you can always sell your shares mate. Oh wait, you haven’t got any.

gingernut1: From the brokers note, issued with the share price higher than currently. “Valuation conclusion On the basis of our compco valuation analysis, we believe an appropriate valuation range on a one year view for Live Company is 73p – 89p.

But good luck with your short lads.

carcosa: MMD, Probably explains why London/Italy property is no longer being rented out (although used) and certainly explains why the deferred consideration will be paid by shares (almost certainly at a discount). A further fund raise at this stage would trash the share price so if the H2 performance materialises then, with a hopefully higher share price, a fund raise will be on the cards when the prelims are issued.
