sweepie2: Blockbuster report from Investor Show about Tern, market sensitive news leaked to attendees Further to yesterday’s brief post, I had the pleasure of sitting through the TERN presentation by Bruch Leith and the chance to talk to him in detail for about 15 minutes after. Bruce came across as a nice guy and indeed, he explained some of the personal issues that Al Sisto has had to deal with in the last 3 years and it puts things in perspective. Presentation Key points: - Al Sisto; career in Intel; encryption expert with expert knowledge of what’s needed in the IOT space. - Al Sisto California based but spends approx. 50% of his time in the UK. - Tern; the leading investment company in the IOT space. - Bruce Leith; primary role; finding new deals/investment companies (note; at last, people now in dedicated roles rather than trying to do everything). - Bruce; looking at 4 new investment companies , deals imminent , subject to term sheets and due diligence completion. - Working with Microsoft (possibly through In VMA). - Device Authority : hungry for cash due to growth; building product and distribution channels with Global technology companies - Intel deal; took 2 years to consumate; 7 months behind schedule mainly due to Intel internal process/sign offs. DA will handle authentication of Intel chip and through the Cloud - GEC; launched in USA last week (medical devices); launch re-scheduled to enable DA integration to be integral to the product. Enables 24/7 monitoring and treatment remote from hospital of patient condition but all data secured by DA. Huge market potential. - Strong play – authenticating sensors and at point of application; data remains secure throughout. - Products are now being rolled out; very well placed! Data analytics will also be a revenue growth area. - IOT take up by global tech has been slower than envisaged but now starting to gain traction and momentum. - 8 fold increase in security attacks in the last year; DA has a hack proof platform that automates at scale. - Strong patent suite that global’s cannot copy - DA life cycle has seen 12-24 month sales campaign followed by a 9-12 month product development/integration period. THIS IS WHY IT HAS TAKEN TIME TO REACH PARTNERSHIP AGREEMENT AND PRODUCT ROLL OUT. Global tech companies are slow to progress due to internal approvals, budgets and priorities. - Now in a position to deploy Keyscaler globally with good evidence of several major customer contracts signed in the last 6 months. - THALES/GEMALTO; TO BUILD A BUSINESS AROUND DA/KEYSCLER; 2018-2021 RAPID GROWTH ENVISAGED - PTC; a $6 billion company with DA intrinsically linked! - Verticals/markets huge; sensors/data transmission now permeating every aspect of global world/life. - Emphasised high profile global partners. - THALES; LOOKING AT HUGE USA DEAL WITH ROBOTICS DELIVERING SURGICAL PROCEDURES – DA WILL BE INTEGRAL TO SECURITY. - AMAZING THINGS TO COME…… In VMA - Phenomenal order book; tripled revenue in 3 years to £1million and no signs of slowing - Key contracts with Howdens, MSE, MEM’s , GEC - Asset Minder can now be deployed within 3 months of enquiry; see huge potential and synergies with DA. Wrap up - Focus on improving investor communications via 3 monthly conference calls - PATENTS ARE EVRYTHING! THIS IS WHY COMPETITION IS STIFLED, DA ARE IN THE BOX SEAT AND GLOBALS GO TO DA FOR THE SOLUTION TO THEIR SECRUITY ISSUES - SaaS model ; recurring and growing revenues - BLENDING OF THE TERN COMPANIES TO PROVIDE INTEGRATED DISRUPTIVE SOLUTIONS THAT GLOBAL PLAYERS NEED! Conversation with Bruce Leith Bruce came across as a genuine and nice guy. It was clear the last 2-3 years has hurt the BOD as much as shareholders. For example, a number of Bruce’s family have shares in ISA’s bought at 14,12, 10, and 8 pence. It is clear the single issue that has stymied progress has been the time it takes to consummate a deal (typically 12-18 months) and then integrate Keyscaler into the eco system offer. This is due to global tech companies themselves struggling to shape their offer to the market and the way these companies deal with their supply chain in terms of budgets, approvals, gateways etc. Essentially, think of a timescale and double it. Intel took 18-24 months but things are moving rapidly; Keyscaler will be ‘on chip’ and in the cloud for the Intel solution. In summary, they are 12 months behind where they thought they’d be. The US fund raise is still open but didn’t take off due to the slow uptake of contracts + a poor understanding of what is being developed. Device Authority are talking with Microsoft and ARM (DA were approached); global’s will use DA rather than spend years developing in house; ALL ABOUT TIMING! Last week’s San Francisco conference went well with significant interest shown in DA. There is significant interest in DA and ‘players are circling’. They’ve already had offers that have been rejected (at above the current TERN market cap). The dilemma is the timing of sale of DA versus timing of value created by the global partnerships versus the cost of funding a growing company. Also, in order to attract institutional investors to TERN, they need to prove the business model by selling a company for a significant return. Whilst Bruce wouldn’t be directly drawn, my impression was a £75-100million offer (short term) will be considered. Bruce so stated a realistic aspiration that TERN will be valued at £100 million within 12 months. I left the event feeling extremely positive that our money is in safe hands and the share price will be multiples of what it is today in the coming months. My personal preference/issue is they find a way to keep DA for another 2 years unless a £250 million offer is tabled as there’s no reason why DA shouldn’t be valued at £1 billion + within 3 years. Ultimately, I cannot find a reason to sell my shares anywhere below £1. Hope this helps but DYOR,NAI.
whites123: Ill Have a pint and a few hundred thousand shares in LOGP please.. Be rude to turn a potential 18 bagger down.. This was posted by Jimmy over on III Well respected and knowledgeable Oil poster. Jimmys Post from LOGP Some investors may be aware that I have until recently been a long term critic of barryroe. The reason is that in the Celtic sea below the seabed is a thick layer of hard chalk rock which causes an echo in seismic known as a multiple and traditional seismic processing techniques to remove the multiple also reduce the signal strength of deeper layers of rock by circa 95% . For thin sand reservoirs such as barryroe it means the reservoir cannot be traced on seismic through out the field. Because the Celtic sea was inverted by a mantle plume circa 30 million years ago this caused shallow faults known as flower faults which compartmentalised the seven heads gas field which lies at a shallow depth above barryroe . Without seismic that can directly map the reservoir potential faults cannot be seen , with the result that project finance debt would not be available to develop the field and hence no farm outs for the last five years for a field with independent reported recoverable oil of 340 m bbls in which LOGP have a 20% interest. Readers should look at the website of seismic image processing who have a track record in solving this problem and they have done so for barryroe.The results are very impressive so read the last barryroe update from pvr. Now LOGP have 20% of barryroe and they have no money and they need $5m to pay for a well on barryroe that will lead to its development. Can they farm it out. Davy stockbrokers valued an undeveloped phase 1 development of barryroe at $5.81 per bbl earlier this year. Pvr recently advised that this next well will bring 168. Million bbls into the proved c90 category. Can LOGP farm out 50% for a carry of $5 million. The well is being drilled 200 feet up dip from the last well in a field with six wells drilled to date, the well locations are at the top of the structure so ideal as production wells. Assuming an investor got half of LOGP 20% the net reserves for the investment are worth $97 m for the phase 1 reserves at $5.81 per bbl per Davy and say $1 per bbl for the follow on reserves of 172 million bbls worth $17.2 million at total of $114m for an investment $5 million. Can they farm it out with this new seismic, very definitely . The value to LOGP for its remaining 10% after farm out is $114 million or £0.168 per share compared to a curent share price £0.009 an 18.6 x multiple. The chances of success for drilling 200 feet up dip in a field with six wells and new high resolution seismic are very very high. I would estimate an 80% chance of success leading to a phase 1 field development. I have purchased LOGP shares as they represent an extra ordinary low risk high reward opportunity. I have changed my view on barryroe because the new data requires it.
ffp: Evening all, been to a company meeting today at Stansted MountFitchet, which was nice. Now relaxing again with a nice cool glass of water. On the subject of divis and share price, it has been agreed or even decreed that we are going to have to have a rights issue, for every 1 plo share that you own we will give you 5 and b shares, being of the rusty washer variety, for every 1 yo have you will give us 5. Not forgetting C shares being milk bottle tops, we are having a them all suspended due to all the cows dieing.
jonck: heck, forgotten how exhausting mentally ot is to follow a share price to get the peak...too many things to look at. Think my brain is about to fry.
jonck: Just been to Teschco to buy some coffee beans as runing out -- all helps boost their profits and get the share price back up.
ignoble: Government to flog 5% of it's Lloyds stake ...if they get it away ,suppose it is good news for the share price.
freddie ferret: Sorry off topic. Do you still hold shares in YELL GROUP PLC or HIBU PLC? Many people will still hold shares in this company which a while back changed it's name from YELL to HIBU, so do you have a share certificate in the bottom of the sock draw, or in your nominee account?? As the share price fell you may have lost interest in your holding and given up following the news? Well all is not lost. The HIBU shareholders group is now very large around 750,000,000 shares are now affiliated to it. That's around 32% of the shares in issue. So why might it be in your interest to join this group of over 400 shareholders? The answer is fairly simple. The group will be challenging in the courts the managements actions. Shareholders are stakeholders and thus legally have a claim just like creditors. The shares are currently suspended pending delisting or that is what the management intend, however they are unlikely to be able to get away with what they intend in the long term. The long term intention of the management in collaboration with a group of the creditors was to disenfranchise shareholders and put at least part of the business into administration, with probable sales of the remainder to suitors. The creditors involved in this plan (private equity firms and hedge funds together with a few savy banks) know their stuff and know there is value in the business. So why should you join the HSG (Hibu Shareholders Group)? Because it is going to try to get some compensation for shareholders. There is strength in numbers and the more shares registered the better. There is also a dedicated private bulletin board site for members. The people running the HSG are seriously competent. One of the people involved ran a Shareholders Group for former Cattles shareholders. Cattles offered shareholders 1p per share, through court action he got 27p per share for those in the grouping and carried out the administrative process. If you are not in the HSG and hold shares then if this goes to court you will not receive any payout. Therefore I strongly suggest you join the group. HIBU SHAREHOLDERS GROUP DETAILS AND HOW TO JOIN. The groups website is at. ...................................... ADVFN bbs Also the old monkey thread at. There is much I could discuss concerning what has gone on re HIBU, however much that the group knows is private and can only be accessed on the website, in addition however there is quite a bit that is very secret at this time. Suffice it to say there looks like a very good chance that substancial compensation for the shares will be forthcoming for those in the group. I would comment that while a member, I am not on the board or part of the management.
ignoble: Lloyds Bank report tomorrow interesting All a load of tosh IMHO but as long as the share price holds ,I'll be a happy bunny
ignoble: Speculative weekend press comment about Lloyds ... Sovereign Funds and the like looking to buy a stake and so the rumour mill goes around Probably won't hurt the share price
philut: 6 June 2008 CABLE AND WIRELESS PLC UPDATE REGARDING PROPOSAL TO THUS Cable and Wireless plc ("Cable & Wireless") confirms that on 28 May 2008 it approached the Board of Thus Group plc ("Thus") in relation to a possible cash offer for the company at a price of 165 pence per share. Thus has since informed Cable & Wireless that it would not be prepared to recommend an offer at this level or enter into discussions. Cable & Wireless is disappointed in Thus' response since it strongly believes that 165 pence, representing a 50 per cent premium to the Thus share price on the day before its approach, is an attractive reflection of the value of Thus' standalone business and the benefits of the proposed business combination. Cable & Wireless believes that, in the changing telecoms environment, scale is critical and only operators with significant scale and cost advantage will be able to sustain the investment required to attract higher margin revenues. Accordingly, Cable & Wireless believes that its proposal offers an attractive future for Thus and its customers, as Thus would become part of a larger, stronger group with greater scale, product and service capability and financial strength. For Cable & Wireless, an acquisition of Thus would allow it to develop further the value of its Europe, Asia & US business ("EAUS") within its established strategic framework and accelerate its growth plans. In particular, the acquisition of Thus would: * Accelerate EAUS' growing market share of large enterprise and government customers; and * Produce savings in outpayments, operating costs and capital expenditure. Cable & Wireless is also comfortable that its existing EAUS business is a strong platform from which to deliver the long term targets that have been set for the business on a standalone basis. As such, Cable & Wireless views Thus as an incremental opportunity that would be additive to its existing plans for value realisation. However, Cable & Wireless is also keen to ensure that its existing timetable to consider value realisation options in 2008/09 is unaffected by the proposed acquisition. Against this background, Cable & Wireless considers that it is not in its shareholders' interests to engage in an extended process to try to persuade the Board of Thus to enter into discussions. Cable & Wireless is therefore today announcing a self-imposed deadline of 5:00pm on 30 June 2008 either to announce a firm intention to make an offer for Thus under Rule 2.5 of the City Code on Takeovers and Mergers (the "Code") or to announce that it does not intend to make an offer for Thus*, unless the Takeover Panel otherwise agrees. Cable & Wireless considers that its proposal represents a full and fair offer which unlocks value for Thus shareholders which would not be available to them on a standalone basis. Accordingly, Cable & Wireless hopes that the Board of Thus will reconsider its refusal to discuss the Cable & Wireless proposal. This announcement does not amount to a firm intention to make an offer and accordingly there can be no certainty that any offer will be made. A further announcement will be made in due course if appropriate.
