tvh123: The last SCSW writeup was a bit rubbish. The latest Cenkos broker note (June '20) was a far better commentary of the state of play - headlines were: "A potential disposal, reasonable trading through Q2E and a pick-up in activity from a Google led re-ranking of XLMedia's websites could create the scenario for a material re-rating of the stock. While our forecasts and recommendation remain Under Review, we can see strong potential catalysts for share price advancement."
igoe104: Cenkos new note out - Here is the summary. Cenkos: XLMedia Plc -- Multiple catalysts for a re-rating A potential disposal, reasonable trading through Q2E and a pick-up in activity from a Google led re-ranking of XLMedia's websites could create the scenario for a material re-rating of the stock. While our forecasts and recommendation remain Under Review, we can see strong potential catalysts for share price advancement
john09: Yes its a good RNS and pretty much sums up where i though they were at in their strategy 1. reduce / get rid of Scandi 2. start again in North America basically a good buy at some point but no share price catalysts for a long while yet imho Buy in if it goes back to the lows in the teens i think John
sphere25: "...there is now further cause for concern for another material profit warning to follow. Well, nothing unexpected here. Been warning about this one at a regular intervals to ensure folk don't get too carried away (couple of the more recent posts below). This has always been a suspect stock and always had slimy actions revolving around it. So even though it's not grossly overvalued, something always inevitably goes wrong here and how can anyone therefore put any reliance on next year's forecasts. The cheap multiple hasn't proven to be cheap and you have to wonder whether that will continue to be the theme going into next year. I would continue to sit this one out as you just don't know when the next bombshell arrives. Sphere - no position but once more being a good Samaritan --------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Sphere25 - 23 Sep 2019 - 07:35:34 - 9873 of 10453 XL MEDIA is one of the biggest suppliers of online gambling traffic - XLM Ok folks, update time: Here is one of my comments (more below) from the 29/07 when Ory stepped aside - The stock was trading near 80p at the time: "The only surprise (so far) is that the stock hasn't cratered more to reflect the much higher risk of earnings forecasts now being met. In the short term, the stock needs to re-rate materially lower imo to reflect this higher risk and then await further news." TA DAAA! Sphere strikes again! I don't think folk on here have been as bad in defending the founder as they have been on the ALT board, so I guess there are some who have taken the rose tinted specs off - progress! So anywho, I have warned folk about Ory and this company numerous times. And how about Mrs. Inbal Lavi?? All that dumping of stock recently. Could it be possible that she was in the know? I know what I think! Ultimately, with the stock now down at 55p (about 30% lower from where I warned folk), even folk like me who have been bearish know it's not bonkers overvalued like some in the market, HOWEVER... the two largest regions are struggling significantly and with regulation risk increasing, there is now further cause for concern for another material profit warning to follow. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Sphere25 - 29 Jul 2019 - 15:34:24 - 9697 of 9872 XL MEDIA is one of the biggest suppliers of online gambling traffic - XLM Sneaky sneaky Ory, up to his clever tricks once more! He was dumping in size "indirectly" in the past, whilst then making token purchases to paint a picture that he was actually still confident in the business and it was going places. Then you'll never guess what happened! --> Warnings and a crash in the stock. More recently we've had him pumping to the likes of SCSW, so much so that they were convinced to make this the front page write up. Now a short while later he is no longer wanting to lead this so called "cheap" stock to a recovery and a much higher valuation. Ory is the best person to lead this company, and if he is more interested now in "other business interests outside of XLMedia", what do you think that says about the potential here going forward? Yes, there is a possibility it could still continue a recovery, but the risk factor has substantially increased here and the significant selling volume today are investors voting with their feet. The only surprise (so far) is that the stock hasn't cratered more to reflect the much higher risk of earnings forecasts now being met. In the short term, the stock needs to re-rate materially lower imo to reflect this higher risk and then await further news. Just my opinion folks, feel free to throw a strop if it helps. Only delusional folk think a bulletin board poster can influence a share price.
salchow: oneillshaun - I don't know why you get involved debating with morons on personal matters. In truth I don't even share your optimism and thought you were far too positive in the past. Why the US opening up more gambling opportunities will guarantee XLM ever making any money I don't know. I would have thought that the type of work they do to create business for gambling sites could be easily replicated by any number of companies based in the US. Being well aware of the issues that can arise with Google in promoting web sites future success is far from a foregone conclusion. That doesn't mean that speculators cannot make money trading the XLM price up and down.
km85: Worth sharing it again. the below notes from the recent update explained it all. Background to and reasons for the Tender Offer On 26 February 2019, the Company announced its intention to reduce activity in non-core, low margin media activities, with a view to focusing on the higher margin publishing activity, leading to an expected $30 million reduction in revenues in 2019. The reduction alongside investment in development of new publishing assets have led to an adjusted EBITDA reduction of between $6-7 million for 2019. This decision was made proactively by the Board with a view to delivering higher profit margins and better quality of earnings for Shareholders. Despite some recent share price momentum, the Directors believe that the full potential of the Company, as highlighted in the 'Information on the Company' section above, is not reflected in the price of 72.75 pence per Share (as at close of business on 15 July 2019), and that the Shares continue to trade at a significant discount to quoted peers. The Company has been built on the success of its publishing assets and the Directors firmly believe in the growth potential for the business by focusing on such assets in both the gambling and personal finance verticals going forward. In light of these considerations, the Board has concluded that, in the interests of both effective capital management and utilising the Company's strong net cash position alongside ongoing working capital expenditure and the Company's future investment plans, a tender offer offers the most efficient use of the Company's excess cash at this point in time. A tender offer is therefore being proposed to Shareholders on the Company's Register on the Record Date (being close of business on 14 August 2019). The Board intends to continue its commitment to maintaining a dividend policy of paying out at least 50 per cent. of net profit and will continue to evaluate selective publishing acquisition opportunities, which the Board considers could accelerate earnings growth. Information on the Company XLMedia is a performance marketing company operating a large portfolio of informational and content rich websites globally. Its websites act as a conduit to channel users to its clients, the majority of which address two key products - gambling and personal finance. The Group also uses in-house media buying capabilities which it deploys to support its core publishing division. The Group's publishing activities comprise of numerous informational websites and mobile sites which attract millions of users across numerous countries in their local language. These sites attract paying users and direct them to online businesses in return for performance-based payments, which are predominantly based on revenue share and cost per acquisition. The Company is currently focused on further building its publishing business within the established gambling sector, as well as growing its presence in the personal finance space, where the Directors believe that there exists a significant market opportunity in North America. In order to establish its footprint, XLMedia has undertaken a number of acquisitions in this space, most notably and, and the Directors remain focused on broadening the Group's exposure to this growing sector. In addition, the Company is closely monitoring the US gambling market, which continues to benefit from the potential introduction of legislation and regulation across various States. XLMedia is now actively investing in building and developing a more comprehensive portfolio of publishing assets to support its entry into this market alongside investigating potential strategic acquisitions. As previously announced, in order to capitalise on this potential market opportunity, the Company has committed to spend $7 million over the next three years on targeting the US gambling market in particular. The Company is therefore focused on the following key growth initiatives: · A strengthened focus on publishing activities as a core profit driver with an emphasis on gambling and personal finance; · Further expanding the Company's footprint in the nascent US gambling sector, which offers significant growth potential; and · Ongoing investment in technology whilst continuing to evaluate selective earnings accretive acquisitions.

owenski: It's a strange offer, basically 10% premium to recent prices for a share that they believe is undervalued, 10% is not that compelling and indicates people are glad to get out for 10%. However, this only works if one bought the company at the recent lows and I suspect many are holding at higher bought prices. It strikes me as a pointless exercise, why didn't they just continue the buyback as it was and then maybe have bought up more at a relatively lower price. The offer makes no sense to me and smells a bit like attempt to manipulate the share price. The job of a company is to run the business and not to fanny about with the share price, the market will judge their efforts according to the numbers etc. I think XLM looks undervalued but I bought in at lower levels and intend to hold for some time yet, with a caveat that the business obviously needs to deliver.
abarclay: XLM is still a growth stock despite the drop in revenues and profits in 2018. What investors need to understand is the reason for the drop in the share price from it's high of 204p on December 14th 2017. First off, the company made some poor acquisitions primarily around games on FB and also mobile app and software downloads. These two were then discontinued with just short of $10m exceptional costs. Secondly, XLM announced back in February a profits warning. It was cutting back on it's Media side of the business which would result in a decrease in revenues and profits. XLM has been over sold. The company has cash of $47m. It has a progressive dividend policy giving approx. 8% yield and paying back over 50% of profits. Currently it is on it's second share buyback program. Regular buying of the share by the CEO who owns 2.73% and buying from as high as 188p. The P/E is just 7, below the Industry average of 9.89. PEG is high at 5.07% but this reflects the drop in profits. Book value of XLM is 64p. The Return of Capital is 15.3% vs Industry of 5.55%. The Return of Equity is 14.0% vs Industry of 3.52%. Operating margins are in excess of 20%. Forecast net profits for 2019 are $27.3m, a third higher than 2018. What wasn't taken into account during the de-rating of the share price was that the Media side of the business has a lower profit margins that the rest of the company. While descaling the Media side, XLM was then focusing more on it's Publishing side which has far greater profit margins. In particular, XLM is now focusing on the USA and it's gambling side. The USA is currently going through a transition where the different states are starting to legalise sports betting. 17% of revenues come from US. Currently only 21% of Americans can place a bet online. XLM are not new to this though. Currently 36% of it's revenue comes from Scandinavia, where they have legalised gambling advertising online. There is still room for growth here too, as not all of XLM's customers have yet converted to online ads. There is also a Finance side to XLM, which is only about 6% of the company but they are growing this. So all in all, the company is in way better shape than when it IPO'd, cash rich, profit making, buybacks, high divi and plenty of skin by CEO. Looking for a 2 bagger here
acamas: What no one has mentioned is that perhaps the targets are falling in price and Ory is in no rush to buy a falling knife. Just perhaps that is why he is keeping his powder dry. Also he may have been looking at a number of acquisitions and if their price is dropping he might be able to buy the lot rather than any four from say six. The current XLM share price does look good value and 18 months on it could look an absolute steal The company has value and the share price seems oversold which to me says buy soon for capital gain later. I think a 3 bagger is achievable
morph7: Very much appreciated for taking the time to write that out. Cg8 you have probably put 2% on Xlm share price today!
