Well market is looking to totally mis-price the stock and will be a total shame if a predator walks in and takes LOOP out on the cheap. M&A activity picking up too.

Some more Swahili from the mouths of the CEOs in the Half-year Report issued in Sept. Steve Flavell and Michael Hughes, co-CEOs of LoopUp Group, remarks included "With change comes opportunity, and we're embracing this opportunity with our recent product expansion into global cloud telephony integration for Microsoft Teams. Early market reactions to our differentiated implementation have been highly encouraging, and we're confident in our ability to generate strong, profitable growth in this vibrant market that is set to grow from $3.5 billion to $10.4 billion over the next four years. We have a balance sheet that enables us to invest for growth and we're excited and focussed."

Just to reassure private investors I have copied Simon Thompson's article, published in the IC on 23rd of September. I think the share price has been unfairly marked down here on the back of two vaccine headlines. The most recent trading news was fantastic, and I think a lot of that will continue, even if people do gradually go back to working in offices over the next few years. Business is booming at LoopUp (LOOP:245p), a London-based premium remote conference meetings company. As millions of firms move to remote working, LoopUp’s information secure, reliable and easy-to-use remote conferencing technology is enjoying strong demand from customers in key professional service verticals where data privacy and security is paramount (law, accountancy, investment banking, corporate finance, private equity, asset management, insurance, PR and marketing). The client base includes more than 20 per cent of both the AmLaw Global 100 firms and the world’s top-100 private equity firms. It’s growing strongly, too. The professional services segment increased call volume by 90 per cent to 335m minutes in the first half and its revenue contribution shot up by 81 per cent to £16.1m, outpacing the 43 per cent growth in LoopUp’s overall revenues to £31.9m. This growth has sent profits and cash flow soaring. With the benefit of strong operational gearing – administration costs declined by 7 per cent year-on-year to £10.6m – and rising gross margin (up from 67.1 to 71.4 per cent), LoopUp’s first half cash profit more than trebled to £12.2m to deliver a 664 per cent rise in operating profit to £9.2m. In turn, LoopUp generated £9.9m of cash from operating activities (more than 50 per cent more than for the whole of last year) which slashed net debt from £11.45m at the start of the year to £5.3m at end June. Net borrowing has since declined to £3m by the end of August. That’s important as more of the economic interest in the company is now owned by shareholders while at the same time the deleveraging of the balance sheet enables investors to place a higher value on LoopUp’s earnings given the lower financial risk. There are good reasons to expect these positive trends to continue. For instance, post period end, LoopUp closed a contract with one of the world’s five largest law firms, following a successful pilot with 300 users. It is now being rolled out globally and has “potential to become one of the company’s largest accounts”. The largest account currently accounts for 2.4 per cent of the company’s revenue, so this is a big win. The legal segment accounted for around 60 per cent of new wins in the six-month period, according to co-chief executive Steve Flavell, highlighting the quality of its user base. Moreover, LoopUp has offices in North America, Europe, Hong Kong, Sydney and Barbados, so its geographic footprint covers the world’s major business capitals, thus enabling it to win even more business and expand its customer reach further. That’s exactly what the company is doing, having just opened new sales pods in France and Germany to exploit the market opportunity in those countries. Microsoft Teams bumper business opportunity Another growth opportunity, and a sizeable one, too, is the extension announced in July to flagship product, LoopUp, as the company strives to become a leading provider of telephony services for Microsoft’s Teams, a product that has 75m daily active users. LoopUp now offers global cloud voice services via a third-party network direct routing to companies using Microsoft Teams, alongside its own premium remote meetings capability. Users can make and receive outbound and inbound voice calls directly from their Microsoft Teams user interface on any device, irrespective of geographic location, and with differentiated audio quality, reliability and security. Analysts at Gartner believe that 90 per cent of enterprises will adopt direct routing voice calls by 2022, up from only 10 per cent last year. This is a seismic shift and explains why Microsoft is seeking to increase its presence in this important segment of the market. It also explains why LoopUp is exploiting the market opportunity [for cloud telephony integrated with Microsoft Teams] which is forecast to grow fivefold in size to US$7.6bn over the next four years, according to research from Wainhouse Research. Add to that LoopUp’s existing professional services remote meeting market segment (predicted 40 per cent growth to US$2.8bn by 2024) and the company’s total addressable market will effectively treble to US$10.5bn by 2024. Bearing this in mind, the directors confirmed during our results call that they have already secured 219 live opportunities with a total contract value worth £50m for cloud telephony integrated with Microsoft Teams. They expect gross margin earned on this new revenue stream to be in line with that on LoopUp’s existing products. They also noted that 30 per cent of LoopUp’s business came from committed contracts, up from 13 per cent at the start of the year, with an average committed term of 24 months. This further improves earnings visibility, albeit the margin on these term contracts is lower than on rolling monthly pay-as-you-go Earnings forecasts conservative Analysts at Panmure Gordon have left their full-year earnings per share (EPS) estimates unchanged at 15.1p based on LoopUp delivering annual revenue of £55m, cash profit of £16.9m and pre-tax profit of £10.2m. Even after taking into account the first half weighting to earnings, their forecasts look too conservative given analysts have not factored in any benefit from Microsoft Teams direct routing sales. The second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic is also forcing millions of workers to return from the office to home working. Both these factors can only boost demand for LoopUp’s products, and underpin the company’s strong performance. In the circumstances, I maintain my view that the company should be rated far closer to the UK Small-Cap Technology sector average multiple of 13.5 times 2021 enterprise value to cash profit (‘Targeting tech stocks’, 10 August 2020), a valuation that underpins my 300p target price. I first suggested buying the shares, at 138p, in my July Alpha Report (‘Tap into the remote working boom with LoopUp’, 2 July 2020). A move through the summer’s closing high of 248p would be another bullish signal. On a bid offer spread of 242p to 245p, the shares continue to rate a buy.

Ah, this needs to get past the 'this is a Covid' stock narrative. Hopefully the next update will prove it My company has just confirmed H1 2021 we ll be working from home and a complete change in the future working practices going forward. Meaning - we won't be going back to 5 day office weeks in the future again... Extrapolate that for most offices that can afford to (productivity wise)... And this can only mean good news for LoopUp?!

Hopefully this can bounce back strongly. Zoom has fallen significantly but Zoom was at more than 500 times trailing earnings and 150 times fiscal 2021 earnings.

Further to my comment yesterday , the front page of today’s Telegraph has a list in which the U.K. population is divided into eleven categories of declining urgency for receiving a/the vaccine . The senior executives and managers of companies , who form Loop’s target market , are in the two lowest-priority categories ( no.10 all those 50 years of age and over ; no.11 rest of the population ) . Pfizer claim a 90% success rate for their vaccine , which will presumably make the ‘ R ‘ infection rate drop . However , it seems to me that it will take quite some time , even once their staff have finally received their vaccine , before companies feel willing to risk the health of their most essential staff and directors by putting them in aircraft or trains . Also , I imagine that , for international air travel , passengers will need written proof that they have had the vaccine . Furthermore , even if the vaccine is effective , it would take some time before aviation can in any way resemble what it was a year ago , and air fares are likely to be much higher , at least initially . No , Loop Up is not only a Covid stock , but this is what caused yesterday’s drop , which I personally think is excessive , so I’m watching with the intention of topping up . However , do your own research .
