the abbot: So chaps I have been in contact with the company to try to get some of the questions answered that so many are concerned with. Firstly, I wasn't sure if I would get a response, that in itself would be my first red flag, my view is put the past behind us, I know the mistakes of the past regarding Blinkx, however unlike STT and his supporters, I am able to move on from this and give a new company a chance, thus I contacted them with some concerns and to be honest, and as already discussed with Borg used very much a lot of his letter to see what kind of response I would get. Before I continue, I am open in reporting I have ulterior motive as I topped up at 88p and at 98p thus have bought my average down significantly but now have a significant holding thus I am declared an investor. The below is posted verbatim, the response was received from Taptica IR of course they have not addressed each point as one would have hoped, however I am pleased to say that the response in itself shows concern and some support for shareholders (in all the years I held Blinkx I NEVER received a response), it also shows some openness to engage with the PI. Personally I am reasonably happy to be invested here still (albeit much of my risk has been reduced) and will give TAP a chance to get it right, only time will answer that question, although I am sure STT and his cronies will try to answer it well before time! Anyway here is the response, I'm sure it will be ripped apart however I deem sentiment important; Q Why did Taptica release an RNS? As a listed company Taptica was obliged to respond to the allegations and did so according to disclosure guidelines. Taptica always has and always will fully comply with AIM’s disclosure and transparency rules. Q How much revenue will R1 be contributing to the enlarged group? We are not providing specific guidance with relation to the contribution of RhythmOne to FY 2019 but please visit download the latest research from finnCap: hxxps:// Further detail on RhythmOne’s performance will be provided in September’s half-year results. Q Did the company originally overstate how much revenue R1 would contribute? Taptica completed all the necessary due diligence prior to the merger as well as ensuring the market was updated on the trading performance within the RhythmOne business before the merger completed. As a result of the rapid progress in integrating RhythmOne, despite it being less than three months after the merger, we now expect to deliver c. $20 million of cost savings and synergy benefits in the current financial year (on an annualised basis) and expect RhythmOne to make a meaningful contribution to the bottom line in the following year. Q Could the buyback be larger? The board considered a number of options when deciding how to best deploy the company’s cash surplus. Once the second buyback is completed, $25 million worth of shares will have been purchased since the start of April. Taptica maintains that this should benefit shareholders in the medium-to-long term by increasing the value of each share in relation to the underlying assets of the Company. The board constantly reviews how to best create shareholder value, and takes a prudent approach to deploying cash, however there may be further buybacks in the future. Q How are Taptica’s current relationships with its institutional investors? Taptica has the full support of its largest institutional investors. While they are disappointed by the share price decline caused by Uber’s complaint, as of course we all are, they are investing in the long-term and recognise that the underlying business remains robust and has strong fundamentals. Q Why has Taptica not released more positive statements? Taptica has recently made announcements noting the successful combination of Tremor and RhythmOne's video advertising capabilities. The company will continue to update the market as and when appropriate. Q Why has management not purchased more shares? Up until yesterday’s AGM all members of the management team were in a closed period and as such were not permitted to purchase any shares. Any PDMR share purchases will be announced via RNS.
borgioli: Guys, here is a copy of the email i've just sent to Taptica IR: It's a long one ;) Hello Taptica, I'm a Taptica shareholder (old blinkx holder since 2008) and was shocked to see the RNS release yesterday on the Uber lawsuit. The same can be said on today's RNS as well. I don't know who was responsible at Taptica for this action and who the person or people behind the idea of releasing an RNS about the Uber lawsuit are but they must be some of the most incompetent people employed by Taptica or the most malicious. What the hell were the ones responsible for this thinking when they published an RNS on this? A company RNS should be used to issue news that is of 'material' impact to the company's situation. Yet, today you mention in your corporate statement "The revenue associated with the Uber Campaign directly relating to the Company does not represent a material portion of Taptica's revenue." So why did you release a 'non material' RNS yesterday in the first place? It beggars belief at either the gross incompetence demonstrated here or the vile malicious intent to bring the share price down. Headlines everywhere mentioned the words "fraudulent" and "Taptica" in the same sentence. What a great move! Did you not think about the potential effect this could have on public/client perception of Taptica's business practices? You run the risk of multiple clients wondering if they have suffered from the same fraudulent things that Uber are accusing Taptica of. A major risk to retaining current clients because this could result in them taking their business elsewhere and potential reputational damage that could prevent Taptica from gaining new clients. Blinkx suffered greatly from fraud allegations due to the blog from Ben Edelman back in 2014 and pretty much never recovered even after multiple acquisitions and a name change because clients kept walking due to reputational damage. Public perception caused their clients to leave regardless on whether it was true or not and because questionable traffic is something all ad tech companies suffer from to some degree, it shows that by releasing news on being accused of defrauding you are asking for trouble with current clients. Again, what the hell were the ones responsible for this press release thinking? When Rhythmone was involved in the lawsuit with Dataxu they never released an RNS about it because it would only damage the share price and company reputation. I would fire the ones responsible for the Uber RNS on the spot for gross negligence, and in the case of malicious intent i would consider legal action against them. Since Ofer Druker became CEO the share price has done nothing but go down on vague profit warnings and a highly unbelievable story about more than $200M revenue from R1 that suddenly went missing. I'm not buying it, as normally you (Taptica) would sue R1 over such a miss and Tosca, Lombard and Schroders would sue all of you for not doing any proper due diligence. It's far more likely you conjured up this story to cover the loss at the Taptica performance business which suddenly became an issue shortly after the fraudster CEO Hagai Tal was shown the door. The name change seems also related to that. Also, in what parallel universe does Taptica think Ofer Druker's massive options package is justified? It goes against pretty much every moral standard and given the value destruction under his leadership since he took over it's a major slap in the face of private investors. (caused by the ridiculous negative vague profit warnings since the merger which were all worded in a way to greatly damage the share price) It would be good if he would either relinquish his massive options package or amend them and attach high share price targets to them before they can be exercised. (many multiples of today's price that is) I support the potential renewed buyback from today's press release and given the current bombed out share price i would like to see an aggressive buyback for the amount of around $30/40M. The company should at the very least take a large amount of shares out of the market at these prices so that some of the damage you have caused could potentially benefit shareholders in the longer term. P.S If you want to hire someone who actually knows how to increase the market value of a business, i'm available for only $100K a year with a performance bonus of $500K for every 100% increase to the company's market cap. Given the bombed out value of my Taptica shareholding let me give you some free tips on how to increase your market value : - Given that you have already reduced expectations massively with the R1 $200M revenue story make sure you release nothing but "better than expected" statements from now on. - Ofer Druker and Tim Weller should buy shares on the open market to send a clear signal. (not talking about a 5K purchase here) - Make sure that your outlook statements are positive, because a positive update without a positive outlook statement won't help the share price. - Better than expected and positive outlook statements from the current situation could and should result in more institutions buying a stake in Taptica, more analysts would start to follow the company with increased price targets and would recommend Taptica to their clients. - Release regular news on major new clients, the bigger the names you are able to mention, the better. The market needs to know if Taptica is still capable of bringing in major brands at this point and putting such news in seperate press releases not only convinces shareholders that you are able to reel in big fish but would also make other high profile brands consider Taptica vs their current partner. - The Rhythmone company Perk for example hasn't used any of their social media channels since 2018. Those are simple and cheap things to maintain and gain new customers. It's 2019, you can't run a tech company without social media to increase brand awareness. It can be fixed with one phone call but it's shocking enough that nobody over at Perk ever noticed this. Also the app reviews for the Perk apps are terrible and reading the reviews it seems the company doesn't fix anything or get back to them. Not the way you should be treating your app users. You should also look at The Trade Desk as an example on how it should be done and take note on how they handle their news releases. The company has less revenue than Taptica post merger yet they have a market cap of $11B, yes that's Billion with a B! Their revenue doesn't justify their market value but it's all about the perception shareholders have on your company. If they think you can become a major player they buy shares at insane valuations. If sentiment created is a disaster (like Taptica has done) shareholders are not going to touch it even though it only trades at a fraction at what it should be trading at. One final point i would like to raise, Does Rhythmone still have access to the perpetual exclusive Autonomy IDOL license for visual and audio recognition for consumer video? If so, why are you not utilising this technology the same way blinkx did for ad placement using audio and visual recognition and thereby gaining a major technological edge vs anything used by competitors. Sincerely, James T. Kirk
midasx: Taptica International Ltd. (LON:TAP) is a stock with outstanding fundamental characteristics. When we build an investment case, we need to look at the stock with a holistic perspective. In the case of TAP, it is a financially-sound company with a a strong history of performance, trading at a discount. Undervalued with solid track record Over the past year, TAP has grown its earnings by 61%, with its most recent figure exceeding its annual average over the past five years. In addition to beating its historical values, TAP also outperformed its industry, which delivered a growth of 19%. This is what investors like to see! TAP's ability to maintain an adequate level of cash to meet upcoming liabilities is a good sign for its financial health. This implies that TAP manages its cash and cost levels well, which is a crucial insight into the health of the company. TAP appears to have made good use of debt, producing operating cash levels of 2.96x total debt in the prior year. This is a strong indication that debt is reasonably met with cash generated. More TAP's shares are now trading at a price below its true value based on its discounted cash flows, indicating a relatively pessimistic market sentiment. Investors have the opportunity to buy into the stock to reap capital gains, if TAP's projected earnings trajectory does follow analyst consensus growth, which determines my intrinsic value of the company. Also, relative to the rest of its peers with similar levels of earnings, TAP's share price is trading below the group's average. This supports the theory that TAP is potentially underpriced. hTTps://
jonc: Nothing that is said on these boards has any effect on the TAP share price.
the abbot: Is It Time To Consider Buying Taptica International Ltd (LON:TAP)? Taptica International Ltd (LON:TAP), which is in the media business, and is based in Israel, received a lot of attention from a substantial price movement on the AIM over the last few months, increasing to £2.35 at one point, and dropping to the lows of £1.36. Some share price movements can give investors a better opportunity to enter into the stock, and potentially buy at a lower price. A question to answer is whether Taptica International’s current trading price of £1.36 reflective of the actual value of the small-cap? Or is it currently undervalued, providing us with the opportunity to buy? Let’s take a look at Taptica International’s outlook and value based on the most recent financial data to see if there are any catalysts for a price change. What’s the opportunity in Taptica International? Good news, investors! Taptica International is still a bargain right now. I’ve used the price-to-earnings ratio in this instance because there’s not enough visibility to forecast its cash flows. The stock’s ratio of 5.45x is currently well-below the industry average of 22.2x, meaning that it is trading at a cheaper price relative to its peers. What’s more interesting is that, Taptica International’s share price is quite volatile, which gives us more chances to buy since the share price could sink lower (or rise higher) in the future. This is based on its high beta, which is a good indicator for how much the stock moves relative to the rest of the market. Can we expect growth from Taptica International? Investors looking for growth in their portfolio may want to consider the prospects of a company before buying its shares. Although value investors would argue that it’s the intrinsic value relative to the price that matter the most, a more compelling investment thesis would be high growth potential at a cheap price. Though in the case of Taptica International, it is expected to deliver a relatively unexciting earnings growth of 9.1%, which doesn’t help build up its investment thesis. Growth doesn’t appear to be a main reason for a buy decision for the company, at least in the near term. What this means for you: Are you a shareholder? Even though growth is relatively muted, since TAP is currently undervalued, it may be a great time to accumulate more of your holdings in the stock. However, there are also other factors such as capital structure to consider, which could explain the current undervaluation. Are you a potential investor? If you’ve been keeping an eye on TAP for a while, now might be the time to enter the stock. Its future outlook isn’t fully reflected in the current share price yet, which means it’s not too late to buy TAP. But before you make any investment decisions, consider other factors such as the strength of its balance sheet, in order to make a well-informed investment decision.
sikhthetech: 1gw, I hope you're not pumping/dumping this, didn't you sell some rthm a week after posting a really confidence boosting post about them... Did rthm deliver in the end? Is TAP still one of your top 2 holdings... Based on today's 180p, what would be the eq rthm share price . around 150p, eh.. ;-) sikhthetech - 27 Apr 2018 - 20:31:17 - 7220 of 10009 RHYTHMONE - new Name, new Beginning??? - RTHM ONE week ago... well written post... Last Fri share price closed 210p today share price closed 220p up 10p or around 4%... and just 1 month before the results... I'm sure not many posters would post such resounding confidence and then ONE week later, when share price has hardly moved and no news, sell some. Didn't you believe your own optimism? 1gw - 19 Apr 2018 - 22:52:23 - 13673 of 13807 RhythmOne - 2016 a new beginning - RTHM Fleshed out optimism then. They have basically delivered over the last 2 years in my opinion. If you look at the trends they are exciting, albeit starting from a low base. If I have the numbers right, some key metrics are: Revenues: FY16 $167m FY17 $175m (including discontinued ops) FY18 $255m Adjusted EBITDA: FY16 -$10m FY17 +$1m FY18 +$14m Profit/Loss: FY16 -$92m FY17 -$19m FY18 -$?m {-$8m in 1H) Cash from operations: FY16 -$6m (Net cash used in operating activities) FY17 -$6m FY18 +$7m (corrected) If I then look at the specific "guidance" for FY18, a year ago, before RadiumOne and YuMe, they pointed to the "consensus" estimates of $220m revenue and $15.1m adjusted EBITDA. Revenue guidance Radium One did $20m in financial 2Q, so maybe $40m in 3Q+4Q, $60m for FY18. YuMe was doing around $40m/quarter, so maybe $25m in Feb-Mar So adding $220m+$60m+25m, you get to about $305m Even allowing for some closing down of "non-core" in RadiumOne and YuMe it seems they've come in a bit light on revenue compared to the original consensus. Adjusted EBITDA guidance RadiumOne was originally expected to be adj EBITDA neutral over the first 12 months, but then they said synergy delivery was behind schedule. So we can expect an adj EBITDA loss from RadiumOne in the FY18 numbers. YuMe was adjusted EBITDA profitable, so this would help to offset the RadiumOne loss. It seems to me they must have come close to guidance (adjusted for acquisitions) on adjusted EBITDA Plus they've done 2 major acquisitions in the year. So light on revenue, close on adjusted EBITDA and 2 acquisitions. But the acquisitions give them scale, so the revenue miss is outweighed (I would say) by the acquired revenue and improved profitability going forward. So I'd say a resounding success for FY18. Sort of guided, came reasonably close to guidance and also delivered 2 big acquisitions which vastly increase scale. Then on cash, they're actually significantly operating cashflow positive it appears, which would be a huge change and testament (so far) to the logic of the scale-giving acquisitions. But the real reason for optimism is the actual guidance for FY19. No longer just pointing to consensus but stating that they believe they "are well-positioned to deliver a further strong performance in FY2019 - fully in line with current consensus estimates in market" And as others have posted market estimates (Whitman Howard, Numis) are mouth-watering. And all that against the background of a huge sell off in the share price over the last year - which must have left many shareholders fearing that the TU would reveal an obvious (in hindsight) reason for the sell off. How's that for considered optimism? .No advice intended of course and please do your own research. 1gw - 27 Apr 2018 - 15:19:12 - 13805 of 16477 RhythmOne - 2016 a new beginning - RTHM I've taken some off the table at just over 2.20, selling the number that I bought on 9th April at 1.62. That gives me a good profit on that purchase or is about breakeven on the weighted average price of the 3 purchases I've made since the merger completed. Brings my R1 holding down a bit but still one of my top 2 holdings.
momewrath1: Sikhy, I actually think Rhythm have done really well - so sixth sense tells me( which hasn't let me down yet). They just don't want it shouting from the rooftops pre merger as there is nothing to gain! Tap share price will start moving up nicely in the next few months with the anticipated success of the Tremor/Yume link up IMO. I'm not ramping this share...I genuinely think it may well be a good investment opportunity in the medium term. I'm sure people will do their own research. I'd be very unhappy for people to lose money here and hope post merger the new enterprise goes from strength to strength... obviously, as I do hold a new position in both Taptica and 1R.
football: Seems that both companies with Tosca and anyone else at as power to influence the deal wants it to go through. Apart from a few executives getting some chunky rewards it's not about the price of the shares but the share ratio between the companies went the deal go through. Therefore if they are going to embark on a share buyback why would you want the share price to rise as you will be buying a smaller part of the company with the allotted money, surely it's better to manipulate or let the share price fall for larger returns on institutions buying in and for the company wanting to do a share buyback. Still not nice watching share price drift downwards but it's not where the share price is tomorrow or next week, but it's what the share price is in three months time that most investors here are looking forward to after the deal has gone through and hopefully the share buyback along with results/TU have been announced. gla
thomshrike: A summary of the current situation: • The company clearly disclosed to be negotiating a potential acquisition. People are demanding further information as if there are no confidentiality issues involved. People are demanding speed as if priority is not to thoroughly discuss the terms and do proper due diligence. • People are making judgements on the acquisition without having yet being informed of its strategic fit. A share buyback might be the best alternative here, but you cannot really know until you get detailed information of the potential target. • People assume that the share price decline has to be related to company wrongdoing, when there is no evidence whatsoever that that is the case. Many other possible reasons could be pointed out, e.g. potential arbitrage between TAP and any listed company seen as a potential target. Or just unjustified panic and the triggering of stop-loss orders driven by negative momentum. • GDPR concerns are valid, but are widely known to have been more than fully discounted on the share price. Note that recent news have not impacted other peers in recent days. And ultimately the stock is trading at an outrageous 35%-50% FCF yield. • Risk/reward looks very attractive to be long here. The next data point will be the announcement of the acquisition or lack thereof. If the acquisition is closed, given recent pressure on the board, I would expect the company to present attractive profit growth targets. If not, then the share price buyback would start right away. Uncertainty will fade anyway. Ultimately the next data point should be supportive for the share price. All IMO. DYOR.
jonbirdy: Nico: The current malaise began with the former CEO being found liable in a civil case (not criminal) in America for misrepresenting info when he sold a company he owned. This risk to TAP share holders was disclosed by TAP in the AIM admissions document, so not something TAP had sought to hide. The CEO resigned and the share price dived as people saw ‘fraud’ and Israeli tech firms don’t have the best reputation anyway. TAP announced a share buy back up to $10million, but then bought peanuts. They then suspended the buyback as they announced this potential acquisition instead. This view from Graham Neary in yesterday’s Stockopedia small cap report maybe sums things up well regarding the current negative sentiment. “If I held these shares, I would want the buyback to proceed at this share price. According to Stocko, it is trading at a P/E ratio of 4.4x and an EV/EBITDA ratio of 3x. If these numbers are real, it is a no-brainer to invest in its own shares rather than buy a new company at (presumably) a much higher valuation.” “I view the suspension of the company's share buyback program as an amber flag and a bad decision for shareholders. The market is saying Taptica is a broken business and is refusing to pay a reasonable price for its shares, and Taptica itself is doing the same. The implication is clear enough.”
