SYSTEM1 UPDATE: Following SYS1's RNS on 13 April, Stefan Barden has provided the following statement for publication on my blog:

Rainbows, bluebirds and unicorns I'd say ;)Definitely an interesting point in SYS1 development but sustainability of growth is of course the key question. If they sign some more big spenders in this quarter then you may review your exit decision? Alternatively your exit position might be a bit tidier.

Indeed Hydrus, they will have spent days polishing every number they can find.
It is a trading update, so one has to be carefull 😊
I don't want to be part of the issue and its outcome, it's just a question of when to bail out for me.

"Oh, you need timin'
A-ticka, ticka, ticka, good timin'
A-tocka, tocka, tocka, tocka
Timin' is the thing"

I tend to ask myself questions such as 'would I prefer to be in SYS1 or CLX'.
Anyroadup, interesting times.

Good digging Maynard. A bigger separation than I had seen. I hope your article will contribute to Barden's prospects of success.

If management win the vote they will be glued to proving their current approach. Although they seem to be 'true believers' anyway. So, perhaps 'more glued'.

I have been wondering if there is a synergy between d4t4's 'data validity' platforms and the Barden ambition to return SYS1 to its basics. Although a revitalise SYS1 might simply be a customer. Mmmm. Maybe not.

Wait for a Barden success and sell on the rise because it always takes longer and costs more to do this sort of stuff than the market likes? And he will clear out ALL the skeletons in July!
Wait for a Barden loss and sell instantly, or after the inevitable share price drop and slow recovery?

Me again. Spoken to Stefan Barden about his proposed board changes and possibly discovered 'the fundamental flaw at the heart of the company'!

The sales approach based on advert creativity is all wrong.

If the proposed board changes are voted through, Mr Barden will refocus the sales approach back to selling better/faster/cheaper marketing data. He also plans a £100m-plus trade-sale exit within the next few years. Long-ish blog post below!

SYSTEM1: Proposed Board Changes Still Have My Support After Stefan Barden Explains Data-Platform Sales Focus, 5-Bagger Exit Ambition And ‘Now Or Never’ Vote Decision #SYS1

A (very long!) blog post below. Would be very interested to hear of reasons why the proposed board changes should not go ahead.

SYSTEM1: Proposed Board Changes Have My Support After H1 2023 Cash Outflow Of £2m, Underwhelming Strategic Review And Frustrating Management Q&A #SYS1

"Fresh executive leadership seems needed to maximise SYS1's 'superb, proven suite of products' and re-establish worthwhile levels of profit. I support the proposed board changes and continue to hold."

Seems to me Stefan Barden as former board adviser and CEO knows the real potential of SYS1's products. He helped drive through the transition to Data services, backed that up by buying 6% of the company, then left John K to follow through... and then it all fell apart. Pretty sure Mr Barden is also the architect of SYS1's £1billion market-cap ambition revealed the other year, which is why he is going to all the trouble of the requisition to (finally!) get SYS1 to create proper value for shareholders.

Hi VelocyTongo

I think they can count, as the AGM last year saw 3.3 million votes (26%) against the re-election of certain non-execs and suggested some shareholders were already unhappy. The strategic review then promised to assess the board's composition, but the (poor) H1 results simply revealed John K moving to the States to generate extra sales, and the COO becoming CEO.

Among the top 8 institutional shareholders, two are German and two are American, who may not follow City protocol when casting their votes. The rationale for the requisition seems clear to me -- despite good products that have been validated by partnerships with ITV and LinkedIn, SYS1 has underperformed over time, is currently losing money and fresh leadership is required to fully exploit the group's products for shareholders.

Ultimately, success will depend on quality of the automated testing stuff. Do they have enough investment power to be best-class. Compare with a giant like Kantar


Bigger=bigger R&D budgets=better products=winner. You'd think...

SYS1 too small=loser?

SYSTEM1: £100m Revenue Ambition Disappears Following Disappointing H2 Loss As Tender Offer Cancelled And Agitated Shareholder Initiates Strategic Review #SYS1

"SYS1 should right now be using its cash to i) protect its balance sheet, and ii) build its Data platform services, instead of becoming distracted by academic capital-allocation matters"
