No idea I'm afraid - your guess is as good as mine. There are some large American home education companies who might be looking for more international exposure - especially if they can acquire a company with a good local reputation and a scalable IT infrastructure. One of WEY's unknowns is how scalable their infrastructure is. I tried to get an answer from one of the shareholder events a year or two back but didn't get very far. Given JD referred to student numbers growing tenfold over the next few years I'm assuming there is plenty of scope for expansion in their platform. netcurtains - you still dip in now and again and have more detailed knowledge than I do. Any views?

if so, do you think a buyer could potentially be Pearson ?

I don't see what's changed since the last trading update and continue to hold most of my shares. I suspect the long termers who wanted to sell have mostly gone now and we're seeing people who bought in >40p hitting stop-losses. I trimmed about 30% of my holding when the selling price hit 39-40p as the price fully reflected reasonable short to medium term expectations. I reckon this was the reason for most of the other long term investors selling out as they (quite accurately) saw better opportunities elsewhere and are keeping a watching brief on WEY ready to buy in again on further positive news. I still see this as a good 2-3 year hold but think we'll be bought out before reaching full potential. As always just my views - DYOR and all that.

Possibly. They've been preparing the way for this for some time (see the rns from 21st Dec 2018). I just wonder whether it may be a bit soon just yet, whilst they are still bedding in new staff who they've been investing in and the post covid situation is still unclear.

My money is on an RNS confirming a maiden divi is on the way. Last RNS said we are now charging VAT, +£6million in the bank over the summer, current sales beyond market expectations so if Wey are not going to be using that £6mill plus the rest for mergers and acquisitions then that moment should go to shareholders in the form of Wey first dividend IMHO

Cheers netc but I’m not in for a quick 15% smash and grab, holding for a turnaround and by that I mean recovery towards 1p over next few months

Agree with all that netc but recent bridging loan incl from CEO, revenue still decent, 900k payment expected in qtr so im hoping good recovery play from pricing to go bust.

psheeran1: MLVN has negative NAV value WEY has net NAV of about £7m MLVN has made a loss every year since 2015 WEY has made money this year. High covid levels in UK, EU border controls etc et mean even if schools open international students coming to the UK is more of a pipe dream then a reality. MLVN was suspended from AIM in September until it could produce accounts. Got to be quite bad to get suspended from AIM! (LOL). Looks well dodge - but who knows. After Gamestop anything is possible - even probable.

Hi guys interesting comments on Wey re online vs face to face, what’s your views on Malvern as a much less loved stock - has moved to online and seems to be much more in the ‘lockdown loser’ category but with potential to strongly recover as we hopefully slowly change from online to face to face...dyor

abergele: certainly the stock I pointed out early in the thread has gone up significantly and is also now looking toppy. The whole UK stock market might be in for a correction soon. There is no quick fix to the economy.

Nice piece Boadicea,, I tend to agree, Hello Netcurtains,I have to admit to having sold out, mainly for now,if no signs of a recovery,maybe for good. Been here a while made wins rather than a loss, but felt it may run back to 30_33p I'm no deramper, so I maybe proved wrong sooner than later. Good luck all who are holding.

sonie01 - The market generally began the year in a mood to rotate towards the losers of 2020 that were perceived to have good prospects of recovery. This has had the sort of effect you see here on many of the 2020 winners as netcurtains says. However, many of those hit by the rotation have soon recovered. There may be some spectacular recoveries but I haven't a clue which ones and I suspect there may equally be some spectular failures so I am generally steering clear and staying with the winners, especially those that have acquired a contractual steady income stream. I am not sure how far this can be said to apply to WEY. The current environment (apart from vat) is generally friendly but the clientelle could well be fickle. This will depend partly on how WEY perform as well as the macro-environment. Given these factors I have concluded that it deserves a modest space in my portfolio but have top-sliced some profit and will keep under review. I don't think that on-line education will gain a large position in the market long-term but it is ideal for families experiencing frequent moves - forces, international companies with foreign postings, etc - so that children have a proper continuity of education. Also for families in isolated locations, e.g. Highlands, Western Isles, where there could be a government coordinated support scheme as a cheaper and greener option than some of the current transport arrangements - but I digress.

Re the VAT issue squib3 is correct. I did email Barry Nichols-Grey and was impressed to receive this very prompt response: 'To answer your question, one of the InterHigh subsidiaries was incorporated as a not-for-profit entity which entitled it to an exemption from VAT. This made distributing its profits across the Group problematic and gave us issues with irrecoverable inputs. We undertook a broad structural review to address this. As the business grows, the problem would only increase. We will now charge VAT on InterHigh’s UK sales. This doesn’t mean that VAT has been treated incorrectly in the past.'

Surely not going to break the 40’s this easy. Took a good month or so hitting 30 and dropping back. Still early days and even with the very best news the mm’s like to play games. I was thinking we will bounce around 40 for a while, don’t mind being proved wrong though, this is one share I would much rather be in than out.

Not for profit education is Vat exempt, InterHigh was not for profit when bought. I suspect they have had to start charging Vat so they can pay dividends going forward.

Shanklin: like you I'm groping in the dark somewhat. I'd have thought that they either have to charge VAT or they don't (and can't). However, the rns seems to imply that WEY can choose whether or not to charge VAT and have elected to do so. This overview Https://www.gov.uk/guidance/vat-exemption-and-partial-exemption says that education services are not taxable but clearly there is more to it than that. The other implication from the rns is that they have to charge VAT in order to pay future dividends, clearly of benefit to shareholders. Surely someone reading this board must know. The alternative is to seek clarification from the company but I don't believe they are renowned for their fulsome communication with shareholders. For transparency I sold my shares after this week's update, but remain interested and would buy again if they drop back.
