hedgehog 100: Digitalbox could be a 'miracle that rocks'. DBOX's profit upgrade this week is very positive news in the current pandemic. Digitalbox (DBOX) 5.5p Market cap. £5.05M. 28/07/2020 07:00 UKREG Digitalbox PLC Pre-Close Trading Update "Digitalbox plc (AIM: DBOX), the mobile-first digital media business, which owns Entertainment Daily and The Daily Mash, today issues a pre-close trading update for the six months ending 30 June 2020. The Company expects to announce its interim results on 8 September 2020. Despite the impact of COVID-19, the performance of the Company in the first six months has been encouraging. As a result of the Company's strong operating margins, Digitalbox expects to report adjusted profit before tax ahead of management expectations. Furthermore, the cash balance has increased from GBP0.6 million at 31 December 2019 to GBP1.2 million on 30 June 2020. Revenue for the six months ending 30 June 2020 is expected to be flat year on year at approximately GBP1 million. The two factors that drive revenue are the volume and value of advertising. The volume is reflected in the number of visits (or sessions) that the Company's websites receive from users that come to read the content. The value is the price paid by advertisers to reach these users during these sessions. The number of visits to the Company's website has increased significantly but this has been offset by the sharp fall in the value per session because of COVID-19. The executive team took measures to mitigate the impact of the lockdown to offset the revenue shortfall, which protected the profit margin. The performance of the Company's online publishing assets has progressed during the period. Entertainment Daily which is focused on TV and showbusiness news had a strong six months. The number of sessions recorded was up 16% compared to the same period last year. In February 2020, Entertainment Daily had more than six million unique users to its site, a similar level to December 2019. December is historically the biggest month of the year for Entertainment Daily. In the second quarter, the lockdown dominated the news agenda and reduced the flow of entertainment news. As a result, revenue for the period was flat. The Daily Mash, which the Company acquired in March 2019, has been successfully expanding its user base. The site saw record audience figures through the early stages of lockdown as the nation looked to brighten its mood. Top articles through the period included: ' School kid who didn't revise and prayed for a miracle scared of his own powers' ; 'Waitrose limits food sales to people with detached houses'; and 'Your guide to holding out till midday before starting to drink'. This increase was also helped by the Mash Report TV show which aired on BBC2 through April and May. The show achieved record viewing figures as it successfully adapted its production format. Importantly, its share of the younger audience demographic grew, which is a key metric for the BBC when judging success. Like other media companies, Digitalbox has found trading very challenging because of COVID-19. While much uncertainty remains, there are some early signs in the third quarter that advertising spend is increasing. The Company remains cautiously optimistic that a positive advertising market upturn will occur in the second half of the year. This half is traditionally the Company's strongest trading period. James Carter, CEO, Digitalbox plc, said: "Our success in the first quarter positioned us to withstand the challenges presented by COVID 19. We quickly adapted to deal with the new environment, and our content teams made a seamless switch to homeworking. Running a largely automated commercial operation through programmatic and header bidding solutions has enabled us also to continue the trading of our inventory without disruption. "While the lockdown has presented great opportunities for the Daily Mash to showcase the talent of its writers, the flow of news for Entertainment Daily slowed as TV production stopped and celebrities were out of view. We remain cautiously optimistic about the second half of 2020 as big TV shows return to our screens, retail opens up again, and the economy returns to a more positive position." "

hedgehog 100: Zinc Media (ZIN) was formerly known as Ten Alps (TAL), which was co-founded in 1999 by Bob Geldorf, and acquired Reef Television Limited in 2015 which constituted a reverse takeover under AIM rules. It has had a chequered history, multi-bagging in some periods but falling heavily in others, but now looks like a good recovery buy ... although obviously success isn't guaranteed. Zinc Media Group PLC (ZIN) 81.0p Market cap. £6.43M. 17/01/2020 07:00 UK Regulatory (RNS & others) Zinc Media Group PLC Launch of Placing via Accelerated Bookbuild "Proposed Placing, Preference Share Conversion, Debt Conversion, Debt Variation, Share Consolidation, Article Amendments and Capital Reduction Zinc Media Group plc, (AIM: ZIN), a leading TV and multimedia content producer, is pleased to announce a proposed placing of GBP3.5 million (gross) via an accelerated bookbuild placing to institutional investors and other investors, alongside a preference share conversion, debt conversion, debt variation, share consolidation, article amendments and a proposed share consolidation; such that every 500 Existing Ordinary Shares are consolidated into one New Ordinary Share. The Placing is being conducted at a price equivalent to 0.18 pence per share, or 90 pence per share as adjusted for the impact of the Share Consolidation (the "Placing Price"). The proceeds of the Placing will be used primarily to fund the Company's four-point transformational plan, adopted in September 2019 by the Group's new management team, to address issues of the past and enable it to capitalise on its significant market opportunity. The transformation plan prioritises the delivery of improved margins and a diversified revenue base, whilst driving cultural and creative renewal and building operational excellence. The balance of the Placing proceeds will be used for servicing of existing debt and for general working capital purposes. Herald, the Company's largest shareholder, has indicated its intention to support the Placing. In addition, it is proposed that Herald receive New Ordinary Shares pursuant to the Preference Share Conversion and that John Booth, another member of the Concert Party, receive New Ordinary Shares pursuant to the Debt Conversion. The aggregate proposed issue of New Ordinary Shares to the Concert Party would be such that the increase in its percentage holding of voting rights in the share capital of the Company, would require a waiver pursuant to Rule 9 of the City Code on Takeovers and Mergers. The Placing, the Preference Share Conversion and the Debt Conversion are therefore conditional, inter alia, on the Panel granting the Waiver and approval by Independent Shareholders of the Whitewash Resolution. The Placing is being conducted by N+1 Singer, the Company's nominated adviser and joint broker and Peterhouse, the Company's joint broker. Mark Browning, CEO, commented: "I am delighted that our existing shareholders, supported by significant new investors, have backed the Group's transformation plan. This placing will allow Zinc to invest in the plan and enable the Group to deliver future profits following a period of transition." ..."
hedgehog 100: MILA has edged up further recently, in anticipation of a potential RTO: currently 1.75p (market cap. £406K.) Here are some key phrases from MILA's 31.10.19 RNS: • "extremely exciting opportunities" • "at least one of these opportunities" • "a swift replacement" The phrase "extremely exciting opportunities" is clearly very bullish, especially from a company that is not known for its hyperbole. The phrase "at least one of these opportunities" means that multiple acquisitions are potentially on the cards, and also increases the chances that there will at least be something. And the phrase "a swift replacement" indicates that we shouldn't have to wait long. A non-resource and domestic RTO should be relatively quicker, cheaper, and simpler to arrange. Whereas foreign acquisitions obviously increase costs, and resource acquisitions tend to have more complicated due diligence, and risk of abortion. In addition, two other potential barriers to an RTO don't apply in MILA's case:- • It's a 'new', 'clean' shell, as opposed to a 'dirty' shell that previously housed another business, which can have left some toxic baggage. • It's very lowly-valued, including re. cash, so there is no problem of shell overvaluation putting off interested parties. Here's the "extremely exciting opportunities" sentence in full: "The reduction of investment routes for smaller businesses following the continued uncertainty over Brexit has driven some extremely exciting opportunities towards Mila." That sentence highlights a paradox of shells. A period of stockmarket jitters can effectively close down the IPO route for many companies for a while, effectively increasing the opportunities for a good shell ... and that shell's potential valuation. It sounds like that is happening here, and that there could well be competing businesses vying for MILA's attentions. Such competition would mean that MILA could take the pick (or picks) of the bunch, and also negotiate a better deal. I would think-hope that an RTO here would be priced in the 3p to 4p range, and it could potentially be more in the right circumstances. And of course after the RTO the expanded company will in effect be like a new issue, and as with any good new issue could itself do extremely well going forward ... including a potential big initial premium to the issue price.
hedgehog 100: Haydock, Yes, I'm expecting IQAI to raise additional funds in a few months. And I'm also expecting a period of very positive IQAI newsflow in the near future, driving the share price to much higher levels ahead of that fundraising. In fact, I would prefer a situation like this to one where a company doesn't need to raise funds for quite a while, and is happy to let the share price drift in the interim. IQAI did actually conduct a fundraising in March though, which bodes well for the price of the next fundraising. IQAI's March 2019 fundraising had two major positives: 1. The fundraising conversion price of 2p was at a massive premium (56.86%) to the then IQAI share price (1.275p). 2. The investment of the two CEO's was akin to massive directors share buying, a huge vote of confidence in the company, especially at such a massive premium. 11/03/2019 07:00 UKREG IQ-AI Limited Issue of Convertible Loan Notes "IQ-AI is pleased to announce that the Company has issued GBP268,500 in nominal amount of 6% unsecured convertible loan notes 2024, convertible into 13,425,000 ordinary shares of 0.1p each in the Company ("Ordinary Shares") at a price of 2 pence per share ("CLNs"). The funds raised as a result of the issue of the CLNs will be used to provide additional working capital for the Company. The funds raised enables the Company to fully execute its current business plan and shareholders should take comfort that the Company is now able to fully execute its current strategic objectives, following this, initially, non-dilutive fundraise. Trevor Brown, Chairman of the Company, has subscribed for GBP250,000 of the CLNs and Michael Schmainda, Chief Executive Officer of the Company's 100% owned subsidiary, Imaging Biometrics LLC, has subscribed for GBP18,500 of the CLNs. ..."
