codeine1: Yolo have a stake in that Roxi gadget amongst many other things... http://yoloplc.com/content/investors/latest_results.asp
twodegrees: this would never encourage investors if they see drops of 20% + just in 1 day.
twodegrees: just got this message from HBOS Due to new regulations that came into place in January the company needs to provide a key investor document but this is not available so because of this we have to restrict it for purchases
master rsi: barnetpeter Still at 7.375p is considered undervalued by the NAV of 9.9p, that was the price of YOLO about 2 years ago. There was some loose shares and Akers managed to get at the low price and since there are not many in the market at the moment, so the only way is up. On top something could be "cooking", or used as a shell ------------------------------- Summary of investment portfolio The Board has been selective in the transactions made and our investment portfolio now consists of businesses with strong technology and content themes. Each of the businesses are pioneers and innovators in their sectors and are disrupting the space that they are in, which is consistent with YOLO's investment criteria. TVPlayer: Since being founded in 2014, TVPlayer has become one of the UK's fastest growing complete pay-TV platforms. As an aggregator of major free to air and pay TV channels in an over the top (OTT) service, the company has established its presence across all of the main consumer device technologies, including online, mobile, connected TV, games consoles and other connected devices which enable TV apps. The company, which operates a freemium TV model, has surpassed 1.5 million monthly active users and has reached over 60,000 subscribers on its premium pay-TV service. This represents a year-on-year growth rate of over 125%. TV consumption and behaviour is rapidly changing. Connected device adoption and increases in internet speeds are enabling new ways to consume television as consumers no longer need to rely on set top box technologies. The emergence of OTT content aggregators provides consumers with more choice and flexibility than ever before and traditional TV platforms are having to work hard to retain subscribers as they adopt OTT services (cord cutting). Subscription Video on demand (SVOD) and Advertising Video on Demand (AVOD) are continuing to change the way viewers consume content and broadcasters/ content providers monetise their offerings. TVPlayer is well positioned to meet these changes in consumer trends. TVPlayer's proprietary technology platform allows the company to service millions of users at a significantly reduced cost to that faced by new OTT entrants and traditional pay TV companies. TVPlayer's technology and metadata enables it to get closer to the consumer, providing a more targeted, immersive, cost efficient and personalised offering. TVPlayer, with its impressive credentials and momentum, is attracting interest from a number of strategic media investors and acquirers. TVPlayer delivered quarterly revenues of over GBP1.5m in Q3 to February 2018. We believe that valuations in this space vary between 6 and 10 times annual revenues for OTT platforms implying a valuation of between GBP36m and GBP60m. To further accelerate growth and strengthen its management team, TVPlayer has appointed Scott Kewley (previously at Virgin Media) and Nick James (previously at Talk Talk & Lovefilm) as Chief Operating Officer and Chief Technology Officer respectively. Rob Hodgkinson has moved into the Chief Financial Officer role and Adam Smith, the company Founder, continues as Chief Executive Officer. Scott was formerly Director of Digital Entertainment at Virgin Media and has latterly been leading a consumer-facing OTT platform in the UK. James was previously Head of TV Architecture & Innovation at TalkTalk, with prior experience at Lovefilm and Sky. In their new remits, Scott and James will be tasked with multiplying the TVPlayer premium subscriber base. Yolo has a holding of 11,067 shares equating to 4.2% on a fully diluted basis, A&E Networks is a major strategic investor with a 24.9% holding, and Beringea LLP holds 10.9%. Simplestream: Simplestream is a leading provider of Software as a Service (SaaS) based live linear and video on demand (Vod) broadcasting and streaming solutions. Clients include; News Corporation (Ball Ball), A&E Networks (Blaze), Sony Traceplay, QVC TV shopping, Box Nation, Little Dot Studios and At The Races amongst others. Simplestream's proprietary Media Manager cloud technology platform provides live and on demand streaming solutions including; Hybrid TV, VoD in a box incorporating functionality such as personal video recording, TV Apps for mobile devices and desktop and Internet Protocol Television (IPTV) for broadcasters, publishers, telco, cable and SVoD platforms. Simplestream has seen over 40% revenue growth year on year. Simplestream now delivers services across Europe, the US, Africa and the Far East with further international expansion planned for 2018. Simplestream is opening a new office in North America to service its expanding international client base and has signed up new partners in the last quarter including: British Forces TV and radio services, History Hit TV and Little Dot Studios, a BAFTA and Emmy award winning content producer and broadcaster. YOLO holds 9,943 shares in Simplestream, which represents a 6.34% holding on a fully diluted basis. Magic Media Works Ltd ("MMW"): MMW is a music entertainment technology business. MMW's's mission is to bring families together through shared music entertainment experiences. ROXI, which launched in the UK and US markets in late 2017, is an easy way for friends and families to enjoy music together, with a two minute set-up, tens of millions of songs pre-loaded, Voice Search and many unique bonus entertainment features, all in one competitively-priced music entertainment hub. Offering Unlimited Music, Karaoke-style singing, global radio access, an ambient Sound Machine and ROXI's unique music trivia game, Name That Tune, ROXI is highly differentiated and popular with its target market of older, family consumers. 93% of purchasers say they would recommend it to friends and family and 68% of purchasers say they use it every day or several times a week. The Streaming Market is Still in its Infancy. Streaming has changed the way many people access music, we recognise that there is an untapped global audience with significant growth potential. The majority of Spotify users are aged 34 or below. ROXI is therefore targeting a different and complimentary audience and so we believe has great potential of success. MMW has global rights agreements with all the major labels; Universal Music Group, Sony Music Group, Warner Music Group and major independents including Merlin Music, providing customers with one year's access to a premium music catalogue of over 29 million music tracks ad-free. MMW is focused on continually improving engagement with its consumers through further enhancement and refinement of user experience and facilitating integration in third party home ecosystems to ensure that ever more people can access and enjoy the product. Following initial success with TV shopping channels and live retail, the company is now focusing on broadening its consumer marketing campaign with TV infomercial shows across mainstream TV in the UK and the USA, in partnership with specialist infomercial content providers, to enable a scaling of the business in these markets, and elsewhere. Henrik Holmark, previously the CFO of Pandora Jewellery, has joined the MMW board as a non-executive Investor Director. On completion of the recently announced GBP2.0 million investment round, Yolo's holding in MMW will represent 1,646,682 Ordinary Shares, representing 18.6 percent of the issued share capital of Magic. The Company has options over a further 95,000 ordinary shares in MMW. GFinity Plc: GFinity is an end-to-end eSports (also known as competitive gaming) solution, founded in 2012. GFinity has quickly established itself as one of the world's leading eSports companies, capable of providing an end-to-end solution and with a strong reputation for quality across publishers, players and eSports fans. It stages elite tournaments for the top players in the world, producing industry leading broadcasts and providing on-line competitions and content to engage the eSports community. GFinity has made significant progress this year, with the launch of the Elite Series season two, a renewed partnership with Formula One, the launch of the Elite Series in Australia, new broadcasting partnerships with BT Sport, BBC 3 and Eleven Sports and the acquisition of CEVO, an American based provider of technology and services to the eSports market. YOLO holds 400,000 shares in GFinity. AudioBoom Plc: AudioBoom is one of the world's leading spoken-word audio or podcasting platforms for hosting, distributing and monetising content that enables the creation, broadcast and syndication of audio content across multiple networks and geographies.

The platform enables partners to deliver their content to millions of listeners worldwide via embedded (in websites) players, mobile applications, Facebook and Twitter integrations. In February 2018 AudioBoom had 82.3m users, up by 40% on February 2017 users. On 13 February 2018 AudioBoom announced the proposed acquisition of Triton Digital, and on 27 April 2018 announced it was still in the process of trying to complete this acquisition. Yolo holds 5,340,000 shares in AudioBoom.

chrisfillyourboots: YOLO's NAV per share continuing to rise on back of GFIN Simplestream and TVPlayer growth and expected to exceed 2.5p in next few weeks as Magic Works and ROXI investment strikes the right chord with investors.

phenomenonnick: apf - bear in mind Yolo doesn't have control of Electric Jukebox, it's just provided a loan which is convertible into a minority holding - albeit a substantial minority. I do think there are valid reasons of commercial sensitivity why the team at EJ would want the Yolo board to say as little as legally permissible without risking misleading the market. Still - at the risk of thwarting that desire, we can use the requirement to file public accounts and make some reasonable assumptions, to thwart their sensitivities! As per my earlier post we know the stock figure at 31 December 2015. I'm going to assume virtually none were sold prior to the launch, and in the first 10 months of 2015 they were trying to find an investor for the launch, not spending cash on making more stock. It's £140 inc VAT, so the retailer's revenue is £140, let's assume EJ keeps £100 of the £140, and they're on 50% margins. On that basis it's a reasonable assumption that revenue is in the region of £0.7m give or take for the 9-week period, and that this amounts to in the region of 7,000 units. Plus or minus a thousand or so.
nick rubens: Are there any estimates of how many units of this jukebox will be sold and how much might drop to the bottom line (profits, if any). Are these celebrity investors investing at the same level as YOLO or were they earlier? cheers NR
master rsi: ANOTHER HEAVYWEIGHT ON THE LIST OF INVESTORS ..... From TECH CITY NEWS Electric Jukebox closed a £1.5m Series A round, bringing the total raised to date to £7m. The startup drew support from a long list of investors including David Munns CBE, a former worldwide vice-chairman of EMI.
