mudbath: Following today's announcement of the "exciting acquisition by IXIASOFT" of AuthorBridge,will Canadian Innovator,Stilo International,seek to divest the remainder of its IP and return cash to its investors or will a premium set of accounts for 2020 reignite those Canadian listing considerations? A combination of the two will be most acceptable !!
mudbath: Thanks russ505;whilst I am not an O&M investor,GRL does look to have potential. If I lose sight of its progress,do come back here and, hopefully, gloat !
firth2: Great cheer up posting Mudbath. I hate to see that big fat zero valuation on Interactive Investor!!! Hope its days are numbered!!!!!!!
mudbath: Https:// Great for Stilo investors that we are now a Canadian company. Once our new CEO galvanises performances across the board,will we be looking for a TSX listing ?
clocktower: Not still fighting over a lost cause are you two. mud it is clear you have made a fortune on a number of investments/bets and ramps but this never really brought you the rewards I guess you had hoped for - bar when it went up to around 8p it has failed failed failed nearly ever investor but that said it did kindly provide small rewards to me from time to time.
mudbath: With several hundred private investors holding very small amounts of Stilo shares,it would be a good housekeeping exercise if these minimal parcels of stock could be the subject of a mandatory yet reasonable offer from the company. Stilo could use the occasion of any announcement on this subject to comment on 2019 progress.
mudbath: Once Stilo send me a gargantuan cheque then I will look around for follow on investments. Until then, good luck in 2020 to all punters(investors).
stilolosses: Our market expert clown told us he was on his annual jaunt! Another lie as normal. He also singles today out as difficult to buy any shares today and a majority of investors staying on. Let's not mention the last 200 to 300 days where millions have been dumped and investors left in the dozens. One important, significant investor threw 10 million shares out. I wonder who and why? Hood! Hood! Wink! Wink! Let's conveniently forget Brewins who dumped around 20 million in the last year. I wonder why? Our market expert clown wants to know whether I hold shares in Stilo or not. That's for me to know and for you to find out. Of course, a vast majority of investors are staying with! The same clowns who got it so wrong are trying to talk Stilo up on its last day of being a listed company with yet another potential takeover. What idiots! They told us for years and years and years about dividends, special dividends and takeovers etc, etc, etc! For years I said dividends would stop, no special dividends and certainly no takeovers etc, etc, etc! Our expert clown tells us he can sell a million shares at a premium but not buy any at 8p and this could mean a buyout! What idiots he think we are......yet again! In case you did not know you clown it is the market makers who dictate the price and they did this yet again on a share that was going to delist on its last day so that they could make enough money to buy their 5 year old grandchildren a yacht rather than a toy car. The only reason the share price rose today was to make market makers more money and to get investors pouring in when the another delisting takes place. Our clown experts want to give me an update of future progress and potential dividend payments. Well.... I can give you the update now......clowns! Stilo will, just like it has for 30 years or so, completely struggle to get overall sales and profits up from the current 1 to 1.5 million mark! Since launch Omnimark has done 800 to 900k after 30 years, Migrate 200k after 10 years and Author Bridge 10k after 6 years! Stilo will struggle like normal to make new waves and could be sold very, very, very, very cheaply to somebody who will try and move revenues up in this very, very minute, tiny, small market where people do it all in house as Stilo has found out and will continue to find to its cost. Oops! Sorry! Then again, we have heard the same old, same old, same old, same old rounds about a takeover for years! Least Stilo can now afford to cut costs yet once again and reduce it's workforce as this will certainly help it to increase revenues like it has during the last 30 years. In the meantime, I wonder if they will decide to dump Author Bridge too like all those other countless tools that they spent so much money on and then discontinued. No reason why they won't as they have around millions of pounds in depreciation costs for this Author Bridge. No doubt the buyer who our expert clowns are telling us is soon to bid for Stilo will overlook this minor business costs concerning Author Bridge. In closing, we can all now wait for our expert clowns to give us further updates. What expert clowns they turned out to be. Even trying to talk Stilo up on the very last day about 8 pence and a takeover. These clowns have no shame and the only reason they did it was to line their own pockets. No doubt they will continue to deceive others by telling them that Stilo is about to fly when management think the complete opposite. Again, I wonder which important person associated to Stilo International decided to dump 10 million shares! I wonder why! Hood! Hood! Wink! Wink! Please turn the lights out as you leave.
stilolosses: Well...........I certainly wasn't expecting you to push the boat out on my last positive post about Stilo International and come back with a response. But, good for you. When you are normally asked anything remotely challenging, it's quite normal for you to swivel up and curl up into a corner. Maybe you was floating your ice cream with coke on your ship when you felt the urge to come back with a fantastic response. Nice to see that you are attempting to float this one off with your normal CHURN of UNSUBSTANTIATED FAKE NEWS. Many, many, many, many years ago some institutional investors did come on board and we all know that they decided to leave just as quickLY as they arrived because they realised the huge, massive market size opportunity that lay ahead of them and the gigantic financial rewards that they could achieve by investing in Stilo. Mind you, some do argue that having institutional investors is a great thing whereas others argue its a "brain dead submission" All those institutional investors saw all those years ago the "appropriate strategy" Stilo had in place with "upcoming developments" in the following years: Upcoming Developments in 2000 Upcoming Developments in 2001 Upcoming Developments in 2002 Upcoming Developments in 2003 Upcoming Developments in 2004 Upcoming Developments in 2005 Upcoming Developments in 2006 Upcoming Developments in 2007 Upcoming Developments in 2008 Upcoming Developments in 2009 Upcoming Developments in 2010 Upcoming Developments in 2011 Upcoming Developments in 2012 Upcoming Developments in 2013 Upcoming Developments in 2014 Upcoming Developments in 2015 Upcoming Developments in 2016 Upcoming Developments in 2017 In all those years that have passed so, so many institutional investors have decided to stay on the sidelines and Stilo management kept them at arm's length "quite deliberately" because they were so petrified of the "horrendous external influences" that they would have. Over the years, I assume, Stilo International made "absolutely no attempt whatsoever" to approach any institutional investors because they "simply didn't need them". Course, again, I think you are totally correct in stating that it was in fact "the other way round". What actually happened is that all those many, many, many institutional investors that came knocking of Stilo's doors had such terrible demands that Stilo decided to rebuff them all. They came looking for Stilo International and each time they came looking Stilo "rebuffed every single one". Every single one of them made such unacceptable demands that Stilo felt it was appropriate to rebuff "every single one". Just to clarify, Stilo then, I assume, has never had the need to go looking for any investors as they have always been able to hold their own and in doing so I think it probably turned out to be a good thing. Least Stilo have been able to create fantastic shareholder value since. Well, least with all the current institutional investors Stilo has no issues with any "external influences". In the meantime, I suppose, your FAKE NEWS spanning the last DECADE hasn't given Stilo management cause to be concerned about "external influences".
stilolosses: A "Investors being overly bullish"............Totally agree there! Over the years there have certainly been certain posters who year in, year out have continued to generate completely unacceptable and ill-founded and completely false and untrue expectations about the imminent and short-term success of the company which to date have never materialised. Posters falsely making claims that something is about to happen year in, year out. That certainly has not helped. Totally agree that this has kept some investors away but whether those investors who were going to invest large stakes is questionable. Those who want to invest large stakes normally do a lot of due diligence and do not invest lightly. Apart from a couple of large holders Stilo don't have any other large investors. I don't think it's a great deal to do with what people say on the boards but its with how those investors do their due diligence, and, of course, when they look at the current, previous and forward thinking of a company, they think to themselves about how much money they can make from their investment and how quickly. If they believe that they can buy a large stake and then offload it quickly and make a quick buck, then they often go with that. But if they see that this is not possible then they clearly stay away as has been the case with Stilo over the years. I certainly don't see that changing any time soon. I certainly do not see any large investor coming to but Stilo any time soon. B "Company plods on"............Well that is certainly what Stilo has clearly demonstrated over the last 15 or 20 years. It has certainly plodded on! In certain ways I think this has not been as bad as it sounds. Stilo has got to where it is now after a tremendous amount of hard work and effort over the years. Financially, they are absolutely fine. Course, they could have been where they are now in terms of revenues and profits and world leading products with a lot of debt but there not. They have no debt. The only thing I think that has been out of their control is the size of the market that they operate in. It's a very, very, very, very niche market and this has clearly shown in terms of revenues and profits over the years. As most of us know their products are world leaders but to date they are still knocking on the doors in order to increase revenues and profits to the next level. Admittedly, they have been doing this for years. I think this will happen and its just matter of when it will happen with their new products. C "Publicity shy company, relatively unknown"................ I am going to totally disagree there. If you look in detail at their website you will see all the world's leading events that they attend throughout their sector, throughout the year. Year in, year out! You will see that not only do they attend all of these events and put themselves directly in front of a huge, massive amount of their potential customers, but they are nearly always one of the premier sponsors sponsoring these events alongside other sponsors. In terms of publicity, they need to go directly in front of their customers and they have been doing exactly that for years. They are always at the most important, significant world leading Dita events around the world. These events are the most prestigious events and as well as attending these and being one of the premier sponsors, I don't think they can do any other cost effective publicity. They have been doing the right publicity directly to their potential customers for years now. The only problem they have is that they are in a complete niche market. The other major factor that does not help them is the fact that they are operating in an incredibly, small, minute market which only grows very, very slowly. D "Investors dont really understand product , what it does or market".................You are absolutely right there. Stilo operates in not only a niche market but in a market that is difficult for the mainstream investors to get their heads around. E) wrong strategy re dividend"................If you look at Stilo's annual reports you will see that around 2011 or 2012 they said that they wanted to create long term shareholder value. For such a small company with revenues of around £1.5 to £2 million there was only a limited amount of ways in which they could do this. They would have sat down and thought about this in a very detailed way, bearing in mind that they probably wanted to remain debt free, keep investors on board whilst knowing that their revenues were going to remain around these levels. In the overall scheme of things they decided to pay dividends. I think this decision has served them well as they have managed to get the share price up from the lows of 1 pence to the current 4 and 5 pence level whilst growing their cash and product offerings. Paying even a small amount of dividend I feel is a way of keeping investors on board. Obviously, the company has no other tangible and viable option available to them. They have continued to invest very heavily in new products, continued to build their cash pile whilst marketing themselves, I feel, aggressively at all world leading Dita events. Not a lot more they can do really. Ultimately, lets not forget they are in a small niche market. What they have not done and should not do is just advertise and promote themselves just for the sake of it as we all know those marketing companies who will take millions off you and deliver nothing. Stilo have been very astute in marketing in only the areas that matter to them: Dita market specific world leading trade shows. Going forward, with their new products Jats and AuthorBridge, on top of Omnimark and Migrate, this will now open new doors for them. Admittedly, it has taken decades to get Omnimark and Migrate to where they are at the moment and only time will tell how quickly they will be able to generate that extra needed revenue. Hopefully sooner rather than later. In closing, one thing that I think helps all investors is that we no longer get posters making ill-founded, incorrect, misleading and false statements about Stilo's position. We no longer have posters creating what we all now know to be "FAKE NEWS!!!!!"
