lignum: I think the majority of holders are in this for the long term leaving little liquidity and the share price susceptible to small volumes. This is not a trading share. The key issue for me is the 5 year plan and so long as they remain on track I will hold.
lignum: Steve D - I imagine they would have taken a conservative approach to forecasting incremental business from Origin but the deal with Sandbox should give them a solid base for forecasting into 2020. This would allow them to confirm they remain on track with their 5 year targets in the next trading update. The GDC that Games refers to above starts next Wednesday and I wonder if the Sandbox deal was timed to provide some extra publicity to get attendees to try out LBVR. If we see continuing share price movement towards the end of next week I suspect the solution may be a winner. Fingers crossed.
mfhmfh: very significant announcement today for VICON (which was already doing well). This could be a major income stream for OMG. share price rise is reflecting this. All IMHO.
steved: Lignum, Possibly the share has been held back since the results due to concerns about the global economy and perhaps BREXIT, even though it was clear that this isn't too much of an issue for OMG. The outlook from the directors said it all and all things being equal the share price had to react to all the positives sooner or later. I was surprised how much it dropped after the prelims and just couldn't resist a top up.
bbluesky: Amazed no comments after Prelims, but not complaining asit makes me think this really is undiscovered. Divi up, profits up, cash up, directors holdings up. Looking forward to some press write up and share price up!
battlebus2: Very good I'd say given the strength in the share price late this afternoon. I'm expecting further rises if the last 3 mm from holder 1 are cleared.
lignum: Bearfoot - I'm sure that Harwood (28% shareholding led by Chris Mills) and Ruffer (10%) are thinking hard about how to maximise their investment value. Vicon is probably at the stage when it should be divested but that would leave all the overhead to be absorbed by Yotta and the remaining OMG (overhead + Yotta) would probably tank. They need to get growth into Yotta to sell it at a premium and assuming Vicon maintains its position they are then in a position to sell two growth businesses and discard the central costs. That's the theory anyway. Any good news on Yotta (especially from Germany) should have a big impact on the share price. The piece that I don't understand is how Yotta fits in with the billions being spent by Google, Amazon etc on road mapping ahead of the introduction of driverless cars. Clearly OMG can't compete with this investment and Yotta's focus is slightly different (street furniture as well as road condition etc). But eventually the big boys data will also address this; however by that time Yotta should have the relationships and a sticky revenue stream in place. Hopefully.
bearfoot: Hi Billy - the effect of paying of a special dividend is simply to reduce the asset value of the company (and therefore logically the share price) by that amount. In over-simple terms: if there's a 5p special dividend then it the share price will fall 5p. Indeed, this is exactly what happens when a share goes ex-div. A hypothetical example: if the OMG price before the dividend was, say 50p, then after the dividend it would be 45p (all other things being equal). In effect you have 'taken' 10% of your investment out of OMG. This is then taxed as income so if, unlike me, you are into paying higher levels of tax, you will be taxed at up to 45% on your 'sale' of this part of your holding. Ugh! Indeed, assuming you've got unused CGT exemption, then you can sell some of your holding at any time and with no tax cost. Personally, I'd rather the money was invested in growing the existing businesses. They have/had £8m of cash. I'd like to see them making that resource work to accelerate growth for the existing businesss... rather than being beinignly returned.... All the best
lignum: Bearfoot - good post - it would be very interesting to see the share price chart adjusted for all the special dividends from sales of the business. This has been a great share for me over the last few years and if they can get some traction overseas on Yotta I expect more of the same. I also feel that the value of the two remaining businesses could be greater than the sum of the parts.
bearfoot: Lignum, as a long term holder/accumulator I fully agree with you. The OMG 12-month share price chart masks the real return (including the substantial 'special' dividends) over the past 12 months. To my mind, it deos not recognise the unrestricted upside, and underpinned downside. If you remove the substantial investment/loss in OMG Life, and the huge cash pile, you're left with two very solid businesses both with scalable and proven IP (which could/should be very attractive to a global entitiy). I've always been hugely sceptical about the Autographer investment as it is a solution looking for a problem. Indeed, I had been mentally writing Autographer off and hoping management would focus on gearing the profitable entities. However, IF (and it's a big IF) there is some re-usable IP in with Autographer that has a real value, and they can licence that to gloabl player to drive material royalties (as they seem to imply) THEN that would be EXTREMELY exciting, and would lead to a substantial re-rating of this backwater share. Goodness, the various IP within the group must be worth a fortune in the right hands, as evidenced by the Boeing deal earlier this year. As an aside, I hold the stock both in nominee and certificated form and so receive the annual report which (annoyingly to me) is a huge and exepensively produced rather self-congratulatory glossy tome to rival the largest businesses in the world! I hope that this is not indicative of poor cost-control throughout the group or any complacency within the Board or management! Indeed, sometimes I have to remind myself that OMG is Oxford Metrics Group and not Oxford Media Group! Just visit the website to get a taste of this: http://www.omgplc.com/
