Cool tools "Teams has a telephony add-on.

Found the precise answer for myself ;-) Companies have to purchase a calling plan, unless they are at Enterprise E5 level and have a PSTN - so that's where LOOP fits in. hTtps://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/MicrosoftTeams/calling-plans-for-office-365 (link starts off talking about Skype, but is referenced from a Teams document) Different users can have different plans - i.e. domestic, international etc. So, out of the box, MS Teams can't make phone calls to non Teams users, but it is a chargeable extra. Enterprise customers can bypass that extra and use their own PSTN connectivity if they have it. According to Maddox26 (in posts above) quality will be better. I don't see MS muscling in on this, probably small fry for them.

Cooltools, You have been asking this for a while now 😊 The comment above is pitch perfect. What is at issue is whether the dominance of ZOOM will sidetrack LOOP for use by boring old general purpose multinationals. Leaving LOOP in the specialist space. Jury's out! apad

Maddox26 Sep '20 - 17:56 - 1070 of 1157 0 6 0 Hi Pratt, I'll certainly have a go.... On the face of it web conferencing solutions all look pretty similar. However the other providers' IP communication is delivered over the top (OTT) of third party broadband where service quality cannot be managed. LOOP carries its audio channel over higher quality assured PTSN or its own quality managed virtual private network. So LOOP has a very different underlying architecture in order to deliver the higher quality experience. ZOOM, Webex, GotoMeeting, etc are all software products whereas LOOP is more service-oriented. Also, their products are all feature-rich whereas LOOP is deliberately simple and easy to use. Theoretically it's possible that any business could look to replicate LOOP's business model. However, it would require investment to build a World-wide Virtual Private Network and the functionality to compete in this niche. Microsoft's strategy appears to be the Unified Communications Platform provider of choice - rather than a provider of telecoms services. By opening up their Teams User Base to allow other providers to offer telecom services they are thus clearly indicating no intention to compete aggressively in this space. ZOOM is experiencing explosive growth so I would doubt would see a benefit in reorienting it's whole business model to compete in a smaller niche. It would also be to acknowledge that their current service doesn't assure a quality experience. They are probably focusing on resolving their software security issues. None of the web conferencing providers, I am aware of, have the infrastructure to compete in the Direct Routing market - and I doubt Microsoft would allow them to integrate with Teams. Anyone else have other thoughts on this?

If you look at the jobs advertised , theirs a massive swing for Microsoft Teams based. In fact hiring a lot of Microsoft engineers and managers ( not advertised ) which would indicate Microsoft are helping out Loopup to integrate. it would be the best interest of both Loopup and Microsoft to attract existing user or poach contracts from likes of Zoom with a better package. Loopup earns from the world wide Voice network to the cloud where as Microsoft earns the repeat Monthly standard charge. Very much doubt that Microsoft or others will make a play for Loopup as the competition authorities are looking at dominance of players like Microsoft ; Google ; Apple etc.

Nicely stated Pratt2. Just had a look through the company again - undeniably, there is a lot to like. £8m op income in H1 when their previous annual high was £2m in 2017 and not long after the share price reached 500p, says it all. They also have secured new contracts in July/Aug which are not yet in the numbers and they reckon one of those new customers could/should become their biggest. I notice that they have not given a trading update during Q4 in each of the past 2 years. Hopefully, with continued success, this year will be different.

I think the boost will be due in the next 12 months once we start to see the contracts materialise from the Microsoft tie up. Remember, the 200+ opportunities in the pipeline were post period when they were reported recently, so whatever gets converted from that pipe will be included in the next trading statement. Depending on how successful the management is in execution, the analysts will have to upgrade this. And that is the catalyst this will need to go behind 248p and flower to 300p.Few reasons I can think of why this isn't moving as much:1) Execution proof by the company and mgt with regards to conversion. They ve done well so far this year but the market will want to know how well they do against the backdrop of a big opportunity.2) There are a lot of opportunities in the market today, and a lot of people/retail investors may be dipping in and out of the different opportunities our there.3) Recency bias: this has bagged this year already, so it may not seem good 'value' to retailers, who may think the ship has sailed already here... If we break the 248p properly, then this leads to a very bullish uptrend which may attract more buyers.I, for one, am awaiting the next set of results and hoping it gives this the catalyst to surge ahead!Either way, all the best to all holders!!

It seems to be developing into a stage 3 stock (since mid Aug) rather than a stage 2 ascent (mid June-mid Aug). That prognosis can be blown out the water quickly if it gets a major boost. I was just concerned with the dip since the beginning of Sept...it seemed overblown versus the quality of the financial's/companies position. Maybe it was that big investor leaving the scene, but would have expected the cavalry to arrive.

On the trend line soon e ough and at 50day moving average. Uptrend well and truly intact for now. Very tempted to go against my investing principles (diversification) and want to double up here even though current price is my average anyway.Don't want to look abck later and regret not having gone big when this could potentially be a multi bagger from here.Thoughts

It may well be for a lifestyle reason...who knows? But from what I can gather management have still got plenty of skin in the game with up to c9% of stock.

To clarify, my point was that it seems curious timing for the chief operating officer to be selling £225k worth of shares on 5th October (as announced by RNS of the same date) given the positive outlook. Perhaps needs it for a house purchase or similar. He retains a residual holding and has options over quite a lot more.

More weak holders cleared this morning, MMs look to be accumulating nice stock around these levels to release at higher prices once the re-rate comes.

share sale announced on 5th (October) may limit gains... the problems of expressing a point without misinterpretation!

Any dips will be bought into, this is clearly not a stock to trade given the spread and with the v conservative valuation currently, my strategy is to sit tight and let value play out. Not seeing many more exciting opportunities than LOOP given the phenomenal % increase in EPS number printed in the interims. Surprised that no one else apart from ST has tipped these, maybe it will come on their radar once the party is about to end and they have bagged and some more hopefully!

That wins most bizarre loopup post of the year...share sale in may limits short term upside, what are you smoking? We have probably rerated by 50% since May. All good here, nothing new to add other than I would not be surprised if we got a further TU late oct early nov since our volumes will still be outperforming expectations, more likely to get regular TU’s if outperformance continues given that the company have not provided forward guidance.

Ultimately of course the value of the company will be so obvious to all that these daily games will be swept aside and we will see a steadily rising share price

I agree. I wouldn't sell now. The seller will soon be exhausted. The seller is preventing an explosive price rise which will come. IMHO.

I would not sell at this juncture any small pullback will only be bought into. Seen it many many times and lost loads of profit in doing so.

Yet again the sellers appear at £2.40... what is it with this level?! Buyers still trying, but it will take some heavy buys to get through by the looks of it.
