bapodra_investments: Vela has a market cap of around £4m depending on price fluctuations at the moment with the share price. Just out of interest what realistic valuation are you applying to the total assets of Vela and why do you think the current price is a crazy price going forwards say six months in advance? Bearing in mind the stock market generally looks say six months going forwards and applies a future discounting mechanism why is Vela oversold? I would be interested in hearing your views as I may learn more about the valuations others are applying to Vela and their reasoning behind it. My experience tells me that generally a share price is where it is for a reason once the speculators have been in and out which seems the case with Vela. It may get to a market cap of around £5m to £6m but at present I cannot see beyond that until there is evidence of significant and substantial increase in the valuations of the companies Vela has taken a stake in. This may happen but it could take several years and I don't get the impression it is imminent unless BTL starts motoring like before or speculators jump into Argo and drive the price up after the IPO.
bapodra_investments: I think we need to put things in perspective. If Vela has small equity stakes in these companies and their stake is valued at small amounts then when you add them all up do they equate to higher than the current valuation? There is a reason why Vela's share price is where it is. Don't get me wrong I am an investor as I liked its exposure to Blockchain and at the time it was one of those rare stocks listed on AIM that did. I like BTL Group from a Blockchain perspective so to get exposure to it via Vela plus some more was appealing. When BTL Group saw its share price rocket up is the same time when Vela's did. This was also the same time Bitcoin was shooting up towards $20,000. I think BTL share price increase could be a catalyst for Vela.
bapodra_investments: There is no point in a quick spike and back down again as this share price behaviour only suits traders. For investors you need a clear appreciation of the share price that does not come crashing back down. Instead it consolidates before the next leg upwards. That is what we need to see with the Vela share price.
bapodra_investments: The most important thing for me is the share price increasing for Vela Technologies PLC. For this to happen the valuations of the companies that Vela invests in must go up. For them to go up there must be reasons why those valuations are going up. The best ideas, the most intelligent people running the businesses or having access to lots of capital does not necessary relate to a positive and appreciating share price. There is serious improvement needed in the share price performance for Vela Technologies PLC. The recent spike was clearly speculative and that is fine for short term traders but for long term investors there needs to be a steady increase in the share price. I accept there could be liquidity issues but for me the next six months will be crucial for Vela Technologies PLC.
bapodra_investments: Antony, Thank you very much for your detailed answer to my question. It is very much appreciated. If you look in the UK at the market that invests in 'equity' such as shares or funds then there is still a lot of misinformation about cryptocurrency and blockchain in particular. Hence the lack of capital being allocated in this space. I think the media has a form of bias depending on what side of the crypto/blockchain argument it supports. Those who believe in the crypto/blockchain will invest but they may not necessarily allocate large capital in this space. Those with large capital may not invest in this space as they either do not understand the area or believe in it. Education within the investment arena is going to be key. Also how this education is presented and delivered will also determine the success in attracting capital into this very exciting and risky space. I accept that you invest in companies that can take many years to generate revenues and make profits. Therefore, how do you envisage the share price increasing for Vela? Yes one strategy going forwards could be investing in those companies close to listing on a stock exchange and that would seem a sensible yet shrewd strategy. However, what an investor wants is share price appreciation. The investor wants to know how and why the share price will appreciate and keep on appreciating. If this happens then it makes the decision making easier for any potential investors. This is what is missing with Vela in my opinion. Has Vela considered any investments in the Robotics, Automation and Artificial Intelligence space? This space is extremely hot and has been for the past couple of years. If you look at the price performance of funds and ETF's operating in this area then the appreciation and performance has been excellent. Combine this with Crypto/Blockchain and you have a potential winning formula if the right investments are selected.
antonyvelatech: Bapodra-Investmetns, this type of question is exactly what I thought one of the benefits might be of participating here. We have always been prepared to discuss matters such as this and have done so at investment shows and other investment events. Until the final quarter of 2017, and this Board and others reflect this, there was little or no interest from investors in Vela. Investments shows and video / online interviews seemed to make no difference. It was only when the BTL share price started to rise strongly that investors picked up on Vela. It is important to understand the background to where we are now. Regarding comparing KR1 and Coinsilium and comparing them to Vela, other than the fact that the share prices of all three companies will be driven by sentiment towards the sector, the are each very different propositions. KR1 is a “trading”; business compared to Vela which is an investment vehicle in early stage business that can take several years to evolve from a blank sheet of paper to one generating revenue and profits. Coinsilium is more of a hybrid of the others. Also KR1 has the ability to trade out of positions, whereas Vela, historically, has been largely invested in private companies. More recently, a theme of our strategy has been towards investments that have, or are close to having, a listing on an Exchange. This helps with attaching a value to Vela for the sum of its parts. The imminent floatation of Argo Blockchain is a good example. WE may not stick to this religiously but it is a strong preference. One of the drivers for this is that the valuations sought by early stage “technology221; companies are very difficult to justify given the inherent risk and the timescale for which we would need to commit investors money. I still meet with these companies as you never know there could be an opportunity. But I have not met any company in recent times which I thought was investable that had a valuation attached to it that could be justified. I hope this answers your question.

bapodra_investments: Antony, This is excellent. It shows you are willing to adapt and change. I do have one question and it relates to strategy. I am also invested in Coinsilium and KR1 (formerly Kryptonite1) both operating in the crypto/blockchain space and listed on NEX Exchange. KR1 has a higher market cap and I feel this is to do with their strategy of making gains and realising profits so that when the end of year accounts are released there is something to see and an end product for the year. They seem to be doing better in terms of their financial results hence the larger market cap than say Coin and Vela. Vela can make all the investments in the world. I accept some will fail. For shareholders to benefit from an increasing share price in Vela then Vela needs to realise gains and start reporting meaningful profits otherwise the share price will only move upwards based on speculation and then come down and this will just keep on happening. We all know the potential that Vela has but share price moving upwards and staying upwards is what we are all looking for. What is Vela's strategy to achieve this?
sweepie2: From LSE BB Share price...Today 13:29It’s just a matter of time... BTL has dropped massively since 2017 rise along with Vela, but is steadily recovering. One thing we all know is that Blockchain is the future and will be massive... and BTL/ Interbit is a leader in the industry and is Vela’s one way ticket to multiples of its current share price All Vela’s other investments are just a bonus... Blockchaink2 and Argo could also massively boost Vela but only time will tell, could be a BIG few weeks for Blockchaink2... time to deliver, I hope! Should see an update next week as Sankeys said, as to the COB completelion and listing of BITK... fingers crossed! GLA. But BTL will be very exciting next week after yesterday’s news, BIG progress being made!
bapodra_investments: Just checked and BTL is up 30% + on TSX. BTL was shy of $20.00 during its run up to its all time high. At present it is just shy of $8.00. If a rerate happens for BTL then the Vela share price will start to get very interesting.
bapodra_investments: I don't know if the share price will go up or down next week. To be honest no one knows. What I like about Vela is the exposure to BTL. Also Vela is not a pure out and out blockchain play. It has other investments such as Portr, etc. The people behind Vela are smart. I liked how they recently profited from the appreciating share price of BTL but also bought on any weakness as well. The market cap for Vela is low compared to other junk listed on AIM. Also I think there is much more upside for BTL in the coming months so I think Vela will revisit the 1p mark for sure. However you should not hold for the sake of holding. Either you believe in the company and hold to gain greater returns or sell and move on.
