Also it is important to remember that, with respect to dubbing, competitor dubbing studios will only typically offer the ability to dub into a single language and this is where Zoo differs greatly and will be of great value to the content owners in my opinion. NIA and DYOR

About a year ago, Zoo published a freelance translator job advert saying 34 languages were in high demand: hTTps://www.linkedin.com/jobs/view/435083946/ Today, Zoo published a similar job advert with 45 languages in high demand - a 32% increase: hTTps://www.linkedin.com/jobs/view/806057292/ The extra 11 languages in demand today are: -Armenian -Fijian -Japanese  -Khmer  -Lao -Mongolian -Samoan -Sinhalese -Tamil -Telugu -Tonga Shows how the demand for different languages is growing, and the additional business Zoo is winning. Zoo also today put out a job advert for a Production Artist: hTTps://www.linkedin.com/jobs/view/808053237. I like the way they say the Production Artist is to "work out of the Disney offices in Burbank." The relationship with Disney is strong if they want a Zoo employee on site, and having someone on site helps understand client needs and sell additional services.

simso, I agree there are not many voice actors on linked saying they work for Zoo, but there are some. E.g.: hTTps://www.linkedin.com/in/margaux-laplace-515267a2/ hTTps://www.linkedin.com/in/ninafranoszek/ hTTps://www.linkedin.com/in/mpazvaldeslocutoraescritora/ I can imagine that voice actors see themselves as independent and more likely to refer to films they've been in, rather than saying they work for a localization firm. Still, I'd like to see more voice actors saying they're with Zoo - it's something I'm keeping an eye on.

With the linked-in Zoo page which Martina has helpfully highlighted, it is reassuring to cross reference "linked in" numbers against total employees which the company has mentioned in RNS (ie 3000 in at end Sept 17, 4400 at March 18, 5000+ at June 18...and at each point the corresponding Linked-in number comprised 14% of the total. The consistency of that number suggests that Linked-in and Total are increasing at the same rate, and that Linked-In represents a representative sample. In glancing through the Linked In pages, I did not see many (if any!) Voice Actors...only Translators and Sub-Titlers, and back of House Functions. Do we actually employ Voice Actors...or are they just Hired Guns used for specific projects, and therefore not within the 5000 staff they reference?

I suspect as she was there for some time the Company needed a different skill base to match the fast pace of the growth of the Company. She was therefore rewarded for her loyal service etc

@bmw30csl You are running months behind. CFO resignation was announced early this year, new CFO has already started the job. Why the previous one resigned was never entirely clear but it was most likely related either to her personal situation and/or Zoo wanting a new CFO to take the company to the 'next level'.

Given the package she left with I think an assumption of "by mutual consent" is as valid a theory, if not more so than resigned.

stumbleupon, previous falls have been followed by a RNS declaring a sale by one of the fund managers/nominee holders. Let's wait and see.

An article about Turkish shows travelling round the globe: hTTps://variety.com/2018/tv/features/turkey-experiences-its-own-wave-of-peak-tv-1202746009/ They're popular in Latin America, Korea, Qatar, Spain, Greece, France, Germany...lots of dubbing opportunities. This quote hints at how big Turkish tv exports are: "Dramas, of course, make up the bulk of Turkish TV exports, which are second in the world in terms of sales only to the U.S., and are constantly being churned out." Studie Ares, which describes itself as "one of the leading localization companies in Turkey", is an affiliate of ZOO so I'd hope Zoo is well positioned to capture business from Turkey: hTTps://www.zoodigital.com/news/three-new-international-partnerships hTTps://www.aresmedia.net/

Six weeks to end of H1 and history tells us that it doesn’t usually take Zoo long to update the market, if they haven’t already done so by way of a trading update. Personally I am very positive on the outlook for Zoo. NIA and DYOR

Amt, if it really looks like Zoo are going to be making 9 digit profits in due course, then we will definitely be bought out IMO... but the price will keep going up...

Amt - very informative and interesting posts. Any thoughts estimated share price in 12 months based on the current growth trajectory? Post 6170 particularly interesting...

I suspect next set of interims to Sep 2018 are going to look very impressive. Turnover last time was 12m or so. I am expecting double this for 2018 so its going to make a great headline.

I cannot see the pound recovering with all the Brexit mess for a long time. It could get a whole lot worse of course. That is good news for Zoo as revenues are in USD thank goodness. Also the value of the shares in USD terms get cheaper. The downside of course is that we are all getting poorer as our pound gets weaker although we may not be aware of it for a while.

hxxps://www.zoodigital.com/about-zoo/clients I wish I had made a note of the client list but from memory it seems to have grown a lot from a couple of years ago.

I am beginning to think that longer term Zoo could capture more than 10% of the world market. So could be looking at half a billion dollars in say 6 years time. That could generate 150 plus million dollars in profits. I now dare to dream that if things go well this could become a multi billion dollar company. I think the elephant in the room is the speed with which Zoo can carry out the work given the streamlined cloud based operation. That means they could have competitive advantage on speed of delivery to let alone cost. Speed of delivery while maintaining quality may be a key factor as the overall cost of dubbing is not significant to some big productions. All in my opinion and speculation of course

Lionsgate-owned subscription video-on-demand service Starzplay has struck agreements to launch branded channels in France, Italy and Spain following its earlier launches in the UK and Germany. hTTps://www.digitaltveurope.com/2018/08/10/starzplay-to-launch-in-france-italy-and-spain/ Lionsgate is a client of Zoo, so should be localisation opportunities here.
