The issue is how much it costs to attract each £1 of revenue. Obviously if you are spending 50p and you're never going to get it back via £1 additional revenue (@ 50% gross margin) then you're going bust. But the question is WHEN are you expecting that £1+ (suitably discounted over time)? The investment case here is that customers, once attracted, keep coming back. So over what timeframe do they need to come back to justify the investment? Unless you have some way of quantifying that, you're just guessing. For the record I think the payback time is around 2 years. I've done a simplistic calculation from the Q3 trading update as follows: Admin expenses £3.2m Underlying operational costs (overheads, salaries etc) ~ £1m => Marketing ~ £2.2m 84k orders of which 51k repeat orders => 33k orders from new customers (assuming each new customer ordered once in the quarter.) => £2.2m/33k = £67 marketing spend to acquire each new customer Average order size £100 => £25 gross profit per order (@ 50% margin and 50% returns) Repeat order rate 1.5 times per year => £37.50 gross profit per customer per year => £67 recouped in around 2 years.

But you’re ignoring that they’re spending on marketing so they are spending £400 and only getting £100 in sales Rather deciet ful that they exclude freight and delivery cost when working out gross margin too - go ask them!!! Carp

Eezy, you're thinking of profit markup. Gross margin is % of revenue, so at 50% they're selling 50p for £1.

The idea that institutions who subscribed to the latest fundraise are going to sell out is laughable and anyone who says this is clearly deranged or just stupid. No instis have sold anything since this company came to market, its the PI traders who contribute to the volatility, causing the 25-50% swings up or down.

When the 15p shares start trading these will fall Due to selling pressure I’d get out before 4th March

"And I do not think it is unreasonable to point out that positive commentators have, over the past few years, underestimated the funding this company would undertake." I think the Neary list of Scott quotes produces a somewhat exaggerated bias. Scott has always said that the initial funding was too low. I am now firmly of the opinion that they could only raise money in these chunks and that a roll out funding based on success is fine. It's just that they have to justify it every time 😊 The problem with the funding raise before this one was that it was after a dire period. Scott has always been very open and informative about this. See posts on VLG board for more. apad ps I realise I am agreeing with you.

"opposing views are great but only if a base of fact can be found in them." This is a curious point because, in fact, the recent negative posts on here do seem to have a basis in fact. The first potential negative are the continued rounds of fund raising. As it happens, I see this as a positive for a company at this stage of its development: the fact that Sosandar can raise money, from institutions rather than private investors is a real plus for me. But in the long term, this will be positive only if the push for growth through higher marketing spend pays off. Otherwise they will just end up issuing shares forever or eventually run out of cash. I do not think it is unreasonable to be concerned about this, and the fund raising are, undeniably, a fact. And I do not think it is unreasonable to point out that positive commentators have, over the past few years, underestimated the funding this company would undertake. I thought the original source of the information was a well balanced piece to be honest. The second potential negative was the very high salaries paid to some directors in year one. I agree the poster rather exaggerated the point, and the high salaries are not ongoing. But it is hard to argue there is no basis in fact. Anyway, as I have already written, I have recently gone long here, and the only reason I mention that is to conclude that despite all the potential negatives here, I think the risk/reward balance is a good one. Anyway, off to cook dinner and take a break from the forums. Have a great weekend everyone.

The 2018 payments were in a year where SOS had been brought to market. A one off. All that matters now is whether current salaries are sensible. You might feel better about yourself if you made some sensible posts IMO.
