hazl: Every time I get disillusioned by the share price,when I look into it properly,I find my enthusiasm renewed! It is lack of understanding by the vast majority,I believe and perception of lack of need that holds us back perhaps. If this company can keep other firms at bay and keep their edge,then when this becomes more widely used and everyday as Zoom has become then we could have a little money spinner here. Asia is huge US a great market and we have HTC to continue to aid in the roll out. They have a vested interest,too. They have a 20% holding. I mean was the word 'Zoom' commonplace two years ago? The word they would like us to adopt is let's ENGAGE' later!
spursspurs: Results are good and outlook strong, should the share price not be closer to the high of 22p in October than the 11p its sat at now?
notts99: I think you'll be disappointed if you want share price fireworks in the short term. VRr is a nascent industry. On the flip side, the longer the share price is static, the greater the leap could be in the medium/longer term, like Tesla.
masurenguy: That really is a meaningless statistic. I can just as easily state that the shareprice has fallen by more than 100% over the past 9 months. Furthermore, VRE diluted by issuing 48m new shares to HTC at that price, which was also virtually 50% below their IPO 2 years earlier. The fact of the matter is that the shareprice has languished in the 11.00p - 13.00p range over the past 9 weeks.
masurenguy: What are the wider concerns that are specific to VRE? I have several stocks where COVID/the lockdown has resulted in them more than doubling in price. VRE is only 15% above its pre-COVID IPO price 2 years ago.
cer1th: Companies like this were in at 5p and probably have other companies to invest in so cashing in..It was clear from the CEO interview on LSE that 2021 could be a massive year for VRE and everything has been building for success this year..They are definitely without doubt in a better position now than they were when the share price hit 25p last summer...Patience is needed but I'm confident this will come good...Good luck all
hazl: Ireland-based VR Education Holdings (VRE.L), founded by David and Sandra Whelan in 2014, found early success with the first VR Space simulation, Apollo 11. They introduced the PC and VR Engage platform for education and training in 2018. Engage provides enterprises, schools and institutions a VR platform full of varied classrooms and environments. Institutions pay a license fee, but importantly, individual teachers can buy a $10/month subscriptions, enabling private classrooms and custom content upload. Engage offers a modest library of 360 videos, that can be viewed as a group. Users can also upload links to YouTube videos. Many environments have working scenes and whiteboards, or you can just spawn one. Engage is the only VR collaboration app we know of that will enable a fully embodied conference attended by 1000 simultaneous users (avatars), as they did for HTC’s Ecosystem conference last Spring. HTC liked it so much, they invested in the company and are now resellers of the Engage platform. Since March, VR Education Holdings’ share price has tripled as well. In May, new Fidelity employees participated in team-building exercises, games and some training with the VR headsets in Engage.
corrientes: I notice there was a business update on 16 January last year, so I would hope there will be a trading update quite soon. The excitement here isn't exactly palpable if you look at the trading volumes, so unfortunately I anticipate lots of promises again, rather than a dramatic increase in sales activity. if the share price is anything to go by. It shouldn't be that way, judging by all the VR hype that manages to squeeze into every nook and cranny ! Sure Ventures favourably mentioned one of its other stable members recently, so in due course, I hope to see them praising VRE in similar fashion.
hazl: I suspect we will get a mention from the Pires site again. VRE is one of their investments. This is what they said earlier this month. Peter Redmond, Chairman of Pires, commented: "The UN's use of VRE's ENGAGE platform for its annual 'Global Youth Takeover' event is fantastic news. With the COVID-19 pandemic forcing physical events to be either postponed or to go ahead without an audience, the move towards virtual events being held was inevitable. The ENGAGE platform will enable the UN's event to go ahead as planned and will offer delegates a truly unique, immersive experience. "VRE have seen demand for its ENGAGE platform accelerate as a result of the pandemic, and this event will no doubt further enhance VRE's profile globally. Having been designed primarily as a communications tool for education and training, ENGAGE has now been quickly adapted to address the needs of a variety of industries and event organisers as they look to generate revenue without audiences in attendance. We therefore look forward to updating the market with VRE's progress in due course."
hastings: Write up from this morning that may be of interest to others. VR Education, the AIM quoted company behind the Engage Virtual Reality platform, released its preliminary results for the year ended 31 December 2019 this morning and as a result I was fortunate enough to catch with both the CEO and CFO. Firstly, the numbers saw revenue increase by 43% to Euro 1.02m which was driven by a 36% increase in showcase experience revenues alongside the breakthrough of a new revenue stream of fees from the Engage platform.   The results were arguably of less importance to shareholders or watchers of the stock given that they had been flagged previously, rather, the forward picture and prospects was what investors were keen to hear more of. There was plenty of information on offer for holders to digest, outlining the potential for the company, where as a result, I had plenty to discuss with CEO David Whelan and CFO Seamus Larrissey. Without doubt both Executives see the company in an excellent spot which has been massively enhanced as a direct result of the Covid-19 pandemic and all that has brought with it. Whelan says, that Covid-19 has greatly accelerated online and distance learning and such as in the US, it has now blown that open. It is there that VRE has already established a relationship with VictoryXR, whilst closer to home it is now involved with Oxford University.   He explains that in terms of the technology, the company had already laid the right foundations to serve educational institutions citing previous engagement with University professors in fine tuning the likes of its menu system on its platform to ensure the functionality was at an optimum. Getting things right and adapted for ease of use has been paramount for VRE which now sees it ready to transition into wider adoption as ever more aspects of education migrate to online and distance learning. But, away from the education sector the real opportunity and dramatic changes as a result of recent events must lie in the area of business and commerce. Whelan believes that these changes and enforced transition to home working and the subsequent restraints on travel that have hit conferencing are in many aspects very much here to stay, echoing others words that things aren't going back to how they were. Whelan talks of having recently hired aggressively to meet the post Covid-19 demand and highlights that the Engage platform is perfectly placed to meet the demands for companies wishing to bring together people remotely for team talks and conferences etc. “Unlike Zoom which has its limitations on not only the number of people that can come together, our platform is more engaging and can fill important needs and requirements for companies". This includes the availability of the likes of white boards and the ability to provide hallway conversations where business is often done along with personalised avatars.”. The whole concept of being able to diverge into a meeting with a small group room away from the main hub surely has mass appeal and will no doubt be a major attraction in terms of adoption. What has really garnered interest in AIM quoted VRE most recently however has been the exciting tie up with the giant HTC Corp. which looks potentially like a real game changer for the company. “China is a massive market in VR and the fastest growing says Whelan, but to break in to that as an outsider is virtually impossible, particularly for a smaller player. Having worked with HTC for a number of years they had been keen to invest in the past but previously it hadn't quite been the right time. That clearly changed in March after VRE assisted in the Virtual VIVE Ecosystem 2020, which proved a major success and saw HTC taking a 20% stake in the company.   “In order to succeed in China you really need someone in the Asia market and HTC is both strong and well placed across VR and Telecommunications a market that is already massive and ready to explode”. Although rightly there is plenty of excitement and optimism around the HTC association that exclusivity relates purely to Asia and VRE is actively engaged with potential partners in other regions which sees the CEO anticipating deals being done in the next three to six months. But, if that isn't enough to whet investors palate's there is also apparently news due very soon surrounding mobiles, a space where VRE is already partnered with Deutsche Telekom, so that may be a space worth watching. The Android version of ENGAGE will be out in Q3-2020 with the Apple version out in H2 2020. In terms of funding, CFO Larrissey is open and frank and says that at the current burn rate, VRE has around 14 months of money in the kitty. I ask the inevitable regarding a potential raise which is the norm for any company in growth mode, particularly with such a seemingly massive opportunity. Larrissey explains that they are comfortable with the current position post the HTC injection and says there are no plans to raise further funds, as they were already confident of reaching break even and those plans were in place before the Covid-19 situation.   Going on, he points out that the expectation has been there for revenues to ramp up with costs moving in the other direction and that hasn't changed. He does however acknowledge that should an opening or opportunity arise that was beneficial to the business moving forward, then of course it would be something that they would look at. Speaking of the tech and where he wants the business to be in three or five years down the line, Whelan says that there are others out there in the space, but not as suitable as what they are offering, some being aimed more at children and different areas to what VRE is addressing. Going on, it is clear that the ambition and drive is very much there as he says the aim is to target Zoom and see Engage become the next platform of choice. Whilst that may sound like a true blue sky dream, Whelan is deadly serious and has clearly put in place the right steps to take this business to a whole new level. When viewed against the Zoom offering it isn't difficult to see the argument and as this industry accelerates, Engage doesn't merely look like the part it sounds it too. As someone who at one time was mixing cement on a building site until the rain pushed him in a different direction, shareholders cash is not something he takes lightly or for granted and as ambitious as they are, he adds that he is extremely careful when it comes to that end. The VRE story looks a potentially great one to me and for those who can accept that it is still early days the upside potential could be extensive. No guarantees in this game of course, but it looks like the company is on its way and in the right place at the right time.
