These imminent acquisitions. When?
Cheers Whatja. From the Times - this appears to be a second study which has found the benefit of using mouthwash in reducing the risk of catching COVID-19: Https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/colds-are-even-more-common-as-covid-lockdown-eases-0vb8n2h9s "Scientists believe the risk of catching and spreading coronavirus can be slashed by mouthwash after laboratory tests. The study, conducted by York and Scarborough Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and Public Health England, has been published in the Journal of General Virology. Researchers will use the best-performing mouthwashes in a controlled clinical trial."
Rivaldo I think you need to rinse daily to keep the bacterial load down. Don’t swallow to maintain the good gut bacteria. Bacteria found in the brains of alzheimer patients strongly correlate with bacteria found in the mouth. These bacteria are also present in the blood of Alzheimer’s patients and those with advanced gum disease. The hypothesis is that the bacteria enter the blood stream via damaged gums. Keep taking the mouthwash.
Hpcg, I'm now a convert to mouthwash. I only started using it last year, and I have to say that it worked really well whenever I felt an infection or a little tooth pain. I gather you shouldn't use it all the time as this would get rid of "good" bacteria, but two or three days a week is presumably fine.
Rivaldo - I gargle with a mouth wash when I have an infection. As per the article the idea is to disable as much virus as possible before it can get into a cell. Poor mouth hygiene is associated with brain diseases too - its a root into the body for infection.
I have updated my valuation model for the final results. Now getting 111.7p. Still plenty to go for here, in my opinion.

Indeed - the shareholder list is now mightily impressive. This list now accounts for over 66% of the shares in issue: Shareholder Number of shares held % issued share capital Slater Investments 19,121,431 15.2% BlackRock 10,287,191 8.2% BGF Investment Management Limited 9,581,824 7.6% Hargreaves Lansdown 7,470,972 5.9% Directors 6,440,937 5.1% River & Mercantile Asset Management LLP 6,437,200 5.1% JO Hambro Capital Management 5,555,000 4.4% Close Brother Asset Management 5,538,410 4.4% Stonehage Fleming 5,093,438 4.0% Octopus Investments 4,015,000 3.2% Chelverton Asset Management 3,778,000 3.0%
Let's hope this slow edging up bodes well for some M&A action reports soon! DYOR
The annual report reads well, especially the risk section. I think buying in (as I just have) below the placing price limits downside. Bottom of the retrace at 80p or so looks well in.
The Q&A is now available to view on the IMC website.
The recording of the presentation is now available on IMC. The Q&A is not yet there. Basically they ran out of time for Q&A but it sounded as if there were several on acquisitions.
Thank you EC
No, they didn't cover that and it was not one of the pre-submitted questions (there was no time to cover questions submitted during the presentation, although we were promised written answers later).

Hi EC Was there any commentary please on why the directors sold so many shares at the time of the placing? Presumably they did not say it was because they thought the share price was far too high :-)
It was an interesting presentation, giving insights into the business beyond those that can be gleaned from the published results. On acquisitions, they didn't really explain why there has been such a delay from the fundraising to actually completing a new acquisition. However, it was very clear that 'buy and build' is their core business strategy, and more acquisitions will certainly come. Related to this, there was an useful slide showing the spare manufacturing capacity they have at present and how they can double current capacity with further investment of £10m.

I thought it looked good. A £50 million debt facility is being prepared and will be completed soon. They suggested a 50% debt:50% cash approach to M&A. Looks to me that they may be eyeing up some bigger targets. Maybe that is why M&A appears to be taking longer than expected. They have many opportunities they are screening. Production facilities have multiple routes to expansion. Last years expansion gives them almost 50% free capacity on last years volumes.
Anyone listen in? Views please? Stuck on zoom calls! Thanks QS99
Just a reminder that the Investor Meet video call starts at 1pm with the CEO, CFO and CCO: Https://www.investormeetcompany.com/

Nice start to the week. QS99, Cenkos don't have a target price. However, they see an EV/EBITDA ration of only 9.3 for the current year, which is above average/healthy, along with the ex-cash P/E of only 12.9.
Thanks Riv.....does it give a TP? No worries if not. I'm more EV/EBITDA ratio value hunter really.....but it is a strong note IMO and thanks for sharing. Good they have bolstered the M&A team. Mind you in my day at a PLC we managed to do plenty in one year with a minimal team (me!)....so VLG are behind the curve on timing IMO still.... DYOR
Here's Cenkos' summary today for the record - encouraging to see their confidence that an acquisition will be completed in the "near-term": "Venture Life Group Plc Outstanding year Venture Life Group has delivered an outstanding year with revenues up c50% and adjusted EBITDA up over 100%. Revenue growth was delivered both organically and via M&A, and across both the Venture Life brands and the Customer brands divisions. Revenue growth was matched by margin expansion, with gross margin up over 300bps and adjusted EBITDA margin above 20% for the first time. The group closed 2020 with a strong balance sheet able to support M&A. We believe Venture Life is entering 2021 in an exceptionally strong position with numerous organic growth opportunities and the financial capacity to complete significant acquisitions through the year. We reiterate our Buy recommendation. Venture Life brands– Venture Life brands revenues grew over 120% in 2020A, supported by both organic and M&A growth. Significantly, Dentyl revenues were up 80% and the company has resumed shipments of this product to its Chinese partner. PharmaSource contributed £2.8m of revenues and the new brand DISINPLUS contributed £3.6m. Customer brands– Revenues from the manufacture of customer brands were also up 12% in the year, supported by new and existing customers. Through the year, capacity at the manufacturing site was expanded providing scope for future growth in support of the group’s organic and acquisition strategies. M&A – Whilst the Group has not yet completed on any of the three potential acquisition targets discussed with the recent equity raise, we remain confident that at least one of these deals will be completed in the near-term. The raise has also enabled Venture Life to pursue other promising M&A assets and the company has added resources to bolster is M&A capabilities and increase pipeline development. Profitability– We believe 2020 demonstrated the significant operational leverage capacity within the group. Gross margin was up +300bps supported by favourable mix, manufacturing efficiency and higher margin acquired products. The adjusted EBITDA margin moved above 20% for the first time. Investment thesis – We believe Venture Life is in an exceptionally strong position at the start of 2021. We see organic growth opportunities in both divisions while the balance sheet strength and available debt financing is expected to support management’s M&A ambitions through the year. We remain Buyers of the stock."
You can't resist but I'll leave it there
