celeritas: The past is behind, vnet was in a difficult position but has managed through Covid remarkable well. I'm sure the trajectory of Jan 2020 will soon re-establish with vigour, in particular the move away from physical cash will be a big driver, contactless is the way forward.
pottsypotts: No recovery at all in the share price which is to be expected due to lockdown yet pub chain like Spoons seems to have recovered some ground from the lows? What percentage of Vianets business is at risk with pub chains, anyone know
boonkoh: Definitely trading at a bargain price.The key risk I see though is possibility of an equity fundraising.My calcs is that they probably have about £2-3m cash left, having drawn down all their CBIL and overdrafts. Don't think this is enough to see them through half year, especially needing to increase working capital too for ramp up into new sales.But director buys yesterday means no fundraising imminent, otherwise they wouldn't have been able to buy.
illiswilgig: Hi Oxman, unfortunately (for us holders) this one is very much a game of two halves. Covid has had the effect of highlighting the future growth prospects of the smart machines (unattended retailing/IOT) division. Thats the second half. But to get there with no profits from smart zones (pub customers) to bridge the gap - the customers need to roll in to smart machines before the cash gives out - or there is the prospect of fund raise. Cash drain in H1 was flattered by the change in working capital (decreased revceivable s and inventories). They can't keep doing that. But that doesn't mean a fund raise will actually happen - the new customers may arrive. Or the Chairman may decide to slow the product development and make the cash last until the customers do arrive. Given the significant holdings of the chairman - and his recent buying - I think thats more likely. Provided the customers do arrive. There seems to be something of a buyers strike while we wait to see which way it goes, as any fund raise will likely be at a significant discount - which may account for the price drifting downwards. I am waiting to see how low it will drift before adding - but I do recognise that any contract news will likely cause a significant re-rating? cheers
this_is_me: Long term the prospects look better than they did this time last year. Short term it is going to continue to be a struggle. I can't see the company going bust so we have a good investment at current share price levels.
andywillz: @jeffian I actually bought in because i really liked the cashless technology side of the business. however i sold because i think my money can grow better in the medium term elsewhere. VNET will be on my watchlist because if the price keeps dropping, as i suspect it will, I can buy back in at a bargain price and hold for the long :)
galeforce1: king wizard - VNET is very illiquid, and it doesn't take much buying or selling to push the price up and down quite fast. But when things stabilise (and who know when that will be) we should see some institutional buying into any weakness.
thomshrike: Hearing that: (i) the share price decline is retail-led (not institutional). (ii) the company has not seen any impact from the coronavirus situation, either in client behavior or in the ability to deliver their products (as they have excess inventories for situations where there could be disruptions in supplies of components). It is important to remember that the company manufactures/assembles their products exclusively in the UK. As such, it seems panic-related only and certainly overdone.
galeforce1: panshanger - I don't think there's any reason to think that Lord Lee has sold out of Vianet. I just think he has focused on other shares in recent articles, like Charles Taylor Group and Tarsus. I think we just have to be patient and he will write about them in some future article. Great to see the share price rising quite fast. Small volume, though. If a serious seller appears it could reverse quite quickly. Hopefully that won't happen.
galeforce1: jeffian - definitely flies below the radar. But on Friday there was an interesting commentary about Vianet on Stockopedia's Small Cap Value Report, which I have copied below in case you haven't seen it. It's very positive, although critical of the company's website which makes it difficult to understand what the company actually does. I agree with this. It took me a while to grasp that 'Smartzones' is the pub measuring business (which is non-growth) and 'Smart Machines' is the vending machine monitoring business (where there is 40% annual revenue growth and loads of potential). Vianet (LON:VNET) Share price: 137p (+3%) No. of shares: 28.5 million Market cap: £39 million Trading Update (Tuesday) This is a "provider of actionable data and business insight through devices connected to its Internet of Things ("IOT") platform". This PLC has been around for a while - since 2006. At its heart is the Brulines business, which records the volume of liquid that passes through beer lines. Trading in H1 is in line with expectations. CEO comment The team has continued to make very good commercial progress, particularly with contract wins for our telemetry and payment solutions in the coffee vending and unattended retail vending market, with solid support from our Smart Zones business which is developing new revenue lines. Double digit growth in the period builds on our successful recent track record and further demonstrates that the strategy of leveraging the power of our cutting edge technology to bring game changing business insight to our customers has exciting prospects." My view I've just spent some time on the company's website and checking its most recent annual report. I'm very excited by what I've read. See its investor relations website. I wanted to remind myself which of its divisions did the beer monitoring, which I understood to be the activity responsible for most of its historical (and present?) profitability. I was presented with two divisions: Smart Machines and Smart Zones. Smart Machines: 5db30e6decc74VNET_20191025.PNG Hmm. Where's the beer monitoring? Maybe it's in Smart Zones: 5db30ebe8af40VNET_20191025_SM.PNG Cloud-based, big data in the Internet of Things. Sounds like the perfect investment, doesn't it? There is a reference to flow monitoring in the description of Smart Machines, so I guess this must be it. Ah yes, iDraught: 5db30f5d361faVNET_20191025_id.PNG Another investor keyword: "ecosytem". So Vianet provides cloud-based, Big Data ecosystems in the Internet of Things. That's almost everything that I'm looking for in an investment, but I also look for "software as a service". Alas, I could find no reference to "Saas" on Vianet's website. It took a little bit of digging but, thankfully, I was able to find a reference to SaaS on Its "Statement of Compliance with the Corporate Governance Code", published last year, dutifully informs us that the company's Directors have the necessary "skills and experience, including in the areas of IOT, b2b, software as a service..." Boom! Vianet makes cloud-based, Big Data, software-as-a-service ecosystems in the Internet of Things. If only it could apply itself to a hot sector like crypto or cannabis, then who could resist investing in it? My actual view Vianet looks fairly valued at 14x forward earnings: it has a stable beer monitoring business which is performing ok (even though pubs in general are doing poorly) and other activities which are growing more quickly from a low base. "Smart Machines" (the growing part of the business) made PBT of nearly £1 million last year. Excluding the acquisition it made, profits in this division were £560k and revenue growth was 42%. Has potential.
