The last time that the S4 Capital share price increased by 4.2p was over 7 weeks ago. 11th April. Was yesterday the bottom @116.40p? I hope so. I would prefer to buy in to a rising share price than a collapsing one.

September 2019 results billing 184 million, revenue 87.97 million . May 2023 billing 455 million, revenue 261.7 million. Share price september 2019 1.65 , share price now 1.20 ???

On 6th February the S4 share price stood at 245p trading at a P/S ratio of 1.65X, today less that 4 months on (after reporting 26.5% revenue growth in 2022) we are trading at 120p with a P/S ratio of 0.60X. I don't think in my 30+ years of investing that I have ever invested in a company who's share price has collapsed at such an alarming rate, and I've had some poor investments over the years.

Considering that in September 2021 S4 was trading at a P/S of 7.8X. While it could be argued that at 7.8X was overvalued, at today's valuation at 0.60X is just crazy IMO.

Tongosti, if you're right mate re NY boy, and I have no reason to doubt you at all, then that usually is a sign of capitulation if many other shareholders are at the same point then the bottom maybe in sight. Remembering that shares can only be sold once.

I have little doubt that the share price will turn at some point and I personally have no intentions of selling out, I missed the S4 boat once, I don't intend to make the same mistake a second time. I could be wrong of course, after all this is only my opinion.

With regards to inflation, it has been dropping fast in the USA, now down to 4.9% and expected to continue the decline. We in the UK are lagging behind the US, so once we see the start of the expected fall I'm thinking that S4 share price will re rate to a more realistic valuation. S4 is currently trading only @0.70X P/S (Feb @1.65X P/S ratio) which is a crazy valuation.

Just taking a look at the opening S4 trades, in 7 mins there was 34 buy trades and only 6 sell trades, and the share price drops 1.8p, the price paid for share purchases was dropping without any sell trades. Strange.

It looks to me that the share price is getting marked down whatever the amount of trades, or volume are.

Halfpenny, I'm not expecting the recovery in the share price to start until the second half of the year, at the earliest. The market has lost confidence in S4 Capital, I hope that S4 hasn't lost anymore Whoppers when Q1 results are announced. The drop in the share price is alarming and relentless, down a further 2.2% today. What further bad news is currently being priced in here. NAV is 148p per share and we are currently trading at 135p. This doesn't bode well short term. IMO.

ADVFN if believed currently has buy volume at 218k, sold volume 108k. More than 2-1 buys, yet share price is down again.

I don't think that the share price drop is anything to do with the amount of shares that will be issued this year to pay for past acquisitions. This news was already known to the market at the time of the results announcement, if not before, when the share price then moved up to 249p. I think that it's related to the uncertainty surrounding SMS and his health. While I would agree that SMS is the main cog in the S4 wheel, he's not the only one running S4. So IMO this 42% drop in the share price is a massive over reaction. At some point buyers will return. I do think that management need to address this uncertainty ASAP.

Hi bookbroker.
The company have made clear their intention not to make any acquisition below a share price of £4.27. As we stand at c£1.70 I think it’s clear acquisitions are not on the agenda.

I think the share price weakness is continued fall out from the failure of the companies internal systems which caused the share price collapse from £8. The ‘City’ are still unsure whether the company can be trusted and so if shorters are willing to take the risk and sell the shares they can drive the share price down.

It is frustrating as a holder but if SMS started a Twitter storm to support the share price do you really think it would work?

Either SMS is a guru and the share price will be worth multiples of the share price one day. The bear case is that he is not and that a competitor will buy the company. Do you think the holders would sell the company for £2? I don’t.

This share is one to put into your ‘bottom drawer’ and not to get unduly happy or sad by the first ions of the share price All IMHO and what do I know?

Last weekend I run some numbers over S4 Capital future valuation based on analysts based on their price to sales growth forecasts, (source of info Simplywall.st) here is my findings. I have valued S4 Capital at the same price to sales ratio as (1.65X), this was what the share price was at last weekend 245p. I should also add that Simplywall.st say that a fair P/S ratio is 4.0. IMHO for a company with the growth rates that S4 are currently achieving a p/s ratio of only 4.0 is cheap. Just my opinion.

Based on 2022 sales revenue of £853.75M .......p/s 1.65X = share price 245p ..... @p/s 4.0X = share price 595p
Based on expected 2023 sales revenue of £1.203B ...... p/s 1.65X = share price 346p ..... @p/s 4.0X = share price 837p
Based on expected 2024 sales revenue of £1.411B ...... p/s 1.65X = share price 405p ..... @p/s 4.0X = share price 983p
based on expected 2025 sales revenue of £1.538B ...... p/s 1.65X = share price 442p ..... @p/s 4.0X = share price 10.71p
