darcon: The good news just keeps on coming. It seems they are putting all the pieces in place to create a leading global online market research company! If the share price doesn't rise then I am sure some media players or private equity players will become interested in picking up a bargain LAUNCH OF ASIAN OPERATIONS Chinese JV and New Asian Panels The Board of Research Now plc ("Research Now" or the "Group"), a leading global online fieldwork provider to the market research industry, is pleased to announce the launch of its Asian operations. The Group will initially be represented by two new operations in the region. The first in Shanghai, through a 75% owned joint venture in China in which local investors hold the balance, and the second in Singapore through a wholly-owned subsidiary. In addition to the new operations, the Group has also launched eight new proprietary online panels in the region to support the growing international demand for Asian opinion. The new Research Now owned online panels are in China, Japan, Singapore, Malaysia, Taiwan, Hong Kong, South Korea and India. The Asia-Pacific team at Research Now will be headed up by Jason Buchanan, Managing Director, Asia-Pacific. Commenting on the launch, Jason Buchanan said: "We are extremely excited to be rolling out our proven panel model in Asia. Expansion into this region follows demand from our existing client base worldwide for proprietary access to consumer opinions in one of the fastest growing economic areas in the world. Establishing offices on the ground in Asia will enable us to extend the highest quality level of service to new and existing clients local to the region." Chris Havemann, CEO of Research Now added: "Since our IPO in 2005, Research Now has successfully established itself as the market leader in Europe and one of the fastest-growing online panel companies in North America. Expansion into Asia will give us true proprietary panel coverage across each of the major regions of the world, a presence in Singapore and entry into China, fast becoming one of the world's largest research markets".
darcon: Todays RNS explains recent rise in share price as Pearl have built up their stake: Research Now plc (the "Company") (AIM: RNOW ) received notification on 1 September 2008 that Pearl Group Limited had increased its holding in the Company, and now holds 877,872 ordinary shares representing approximately 5.00% of the issued share capital of the Company. As at 2 September 2008, the Company had 17,552,930 ordinary shares with a nominal value of 2p with voting rights in issue, none of which are held in treasury.
dosser2: Great results, but what has happened to the share price?
nessie: Excuse ignorance, but what does the 'exercising of options' (see RNS above)mean for a) the company and b) the possible share price? Thanks all you stock market geniuses/genii!
nurdin: Excellent trading statement..hope to see the share price capture previous heights now
hew: I agree that Runnicles' Options do appear remarkably generous. A static share price will give him over £250K in 3 years. It also seems relatively unusual to grant options at the nominal price of the share and my first thought was of an error in the RNS text. I'm away from my "office" at present and can't check whether his salary has yet been revealed. Most optimistically, it is possible that after about a 6 month probationary period, and in the context of the previous events, the Board sees his performance as such an asset that they want to lock him in and are confident that he will work wonders!
opportunity: Well, with an exercise price of £0.02, not much incentive to take the share price from £2.70 to £4.00. Even if it falls to £1.50, it will still generate a healthy gain - all the FD has to do is just to ensure the business keeps operating until 2010 It is this type of incentive structure that ruins companies.
darcon: I would have thought that it would have been more efficient for them (and less dilutive for us shareholders) to pay the full consideration in cash in view of the share price having dropped below the earlier placing price. Presumably means that they need the cash from the earlier placing to shore up their balance sheet, and in current market conditions can't risk having to go back to the institutions to raise more cash.
dosullivan: Lets hope they can drive the profits and share price upwards
nurdin: Thank you dosullivan...lets see how the share price reacts today...:o)
