martina pescatore: On 25 January 2017 Zoo news item on website stated that 150million milestone reached on zoosubs ticker. Therefore it has taken around just over six months to add the 50million to reach 200million on the ticker. For the last few months and with a slight increase in the rate, the runrate for the ticker has been circa 3.5million per week, although it has recently hit 4million per week for the last couple of weeks. By forward projection of 3.5million x52 weeks = 182million for a whole year, at least, at the runrate since March 2017. This might be slightly ahead of the game but the growth monthly makes it difficult to calculate; I nice problem to have of course as a shareholder. For the year end to 31 March 2017, Zoo indicates that most of the growth was in the demand for their localisation services. They have not provided a figure but the H2 was massively ahead of the H2 for the prior year, but let's look at the whole year and say that $2million of revenue could be attributed to the zoosubs ticker alone. We know that the ticker was at circa 100million in March 2016 and at end January 2017 we know that it was at 150million, I.e. 5million per month (60million per year runrate). For two thirds of H1 current financial year Zoo now appear to have had close to three times the runrate on the zoosubs ticker, which is what a number of contributors on this board have been saying for some time. I reckon that this will give Zoo additional (growth) revenues of circa $6m on top of the $8m revenues as per H1 last year, without any growth from other business, if correct. This suggests that H1 could see revenues of circa $14m, I.e., growth of 75% over prior period. The current broker share price target of 16p is based on an undemanding 9% yoy growth. So what should the 75% growth in revenues produce in way of profit growth, it could be more than 75% as the technology is highly scalable, but it could also be less than 75%. I personally reckon that it will be more than 75%, but let's assume 75%. This indicates either way that the broker estimate of 9% yoy growth is going to be materially beaten, unless other Zoo business is performing poorly, which according to company comments on rapid growth being experienced, etc., is not the case. So what should be the price target if not 16p? Should the broker issue a new update? Should Zoo issue an RNS statement that the H1 revenues and profit (?) will be materially ahead of prior year? I reckon that any RNS will come at the AGM statement time at end of September although there is possibly a good reason to announce earlier imo, if the above is anywhere near correct. NIA and DYOR
martina pescatore: A new item of news on the zoo website today, but dated Tuesday 18 July 2017 for some reason, stating that Zoo will be showcasing Zoodubs and Zooscreen at the forthcoming IBC 2017 show. Now I don't suppose that they would be showcasing it again at another event/show, if the industry wasn't likely to be receptive to them. In the news item Zoo also indicate that they will be showcasing a new cloud-powered scripting service. Could this be named Zooscript by any chance. Anyway, it appears to be another demonstration of innovation in the industry and another potential revenue stream for Zoo. Zoo should be able to benefit from cross selling these various innovations to existing clients, whilst such innovations will also likely attract new clients. No guarantee of course, but gives a better view of potential for growth this year, next year and in years to come!!! All of this growth would be organic from its own R&D and sales teams of course, without expensive and dilutive acquisitions. As regards any potential takeover price levels, as per discussions above, I do hope that there is no such attempt in the near future at sub 45p. I am of the opinion that the growth trajectory that Zoo appear to be on, along with some added positive comments on sales/adoption of new products (i.e. Zooscreen, Zoodubs, etc.) at the interims due in November 2017, or in a TU before hand, or at the AGM statement in late September 2017 (?) then a share price in excess of 90p less than one year out is not unrealistic based on multiples of peer companies in a similar sector. Then we have the hope of further growth from then on... NIA and DYOR
martina pescatore: I also reckon that the BOD at Zoo were caught on the hop by the YMagis purchase. Ignoring this acquisition of circa 9% of Zoo, the share price was stubbornly stuck at around 10p per share for many months and moved from 9p to 11p or thereabouts. Raising money at 9p, getting cash in the bank and valuable working capital for selling new products and further developing new products, and reducing borrowings and therefore interest payments. Okay, the number of shares in issue will double and some, but I reckon that the chances of survival, success and good share price growth have also doubled and some. I have held Zoo shares for years and I accept that my large holding for me will be diluted. However, I am far happier with where the company are now and where they appear to be going compared to where we were three, four, six and twelve months ago. Even with circa 75M shares in issue, and a mkt cap of £7.5M at 10p per share, there is clearly good share price growth for investors and as I have indicated above, although the multi bagging possibilities may be reduced, the chances of multi bagging have IMO increased. In addition to all of this talk about the placing and shareholder dilution, and the business growth possibilities and share price growth possibilities, we also have the YMagis purchase to remember. One should not discount this acquisition to lightly IMO. Have YMagis seen things that the market had otherwise not seen, but many commentators on this website were talking about quite readily over the last few months. I don't think that the BOD have "screwed" shareholders at all. I accept that if I had just bought shares in Zoo speculatively in the days prior at between 11p and 20p then I would be kicking myself but I don't think it is fair to blame the BOD for this. Talk about the BOD "screwing shareholders" is nonsensical IMO, as shareholders can still buy the shares at virtually the same price as the placing and any difference in price now could seem very "non material" in time to come if the company grow as we were talking about just a few weeks ago. Personally, I am more than happy to hold and add at close to 10p. NIA and DYOR
martina pescatore: Bakunin Reflecting and looking back at the timings of the announcements of last week, it is in my opinion highly likely that: 1. Zoo BOD were advised to get a statement out by their advisers due to the material movement in the share price, although the company did not specifically mention the share price movement of the day in the TU, suggesting to me that they may have planned to release the TU anyway. Also, remember, the TU was due in April anyway, so they could get away with the TU and not mention the share price movement, in my view. 2. Zoo BOD were keen to get the fact that they are sorting the working capital issue into the market and were caught on the hop a little by the 9.185% acquisition from YMagis. 3. the TU really contains no new information that we didn't already know from the January TU, apart from the final revenues figure at $16M and APART from the statement "The Company is in discussions with potential new investors and existing shareholders with respect to a placing of new shares to raise between £1 million to £2 million at a discount to the current share price. The proceeds from the placing of new shares would be used to strengthen the Company's balance sheet, allow the Company to capitalise on the progress made in the past year and to take advantage of new market opportunities, including its dubbing service.". However, if one looks back at the January 2017 TU and if one is honest, the usefulness of extra funds to the company was clear then and for a publicly listed company, placing is a good way to go for it. I don't particularly want any more debt on the company. looking back, the placing isn't too much of a surprise really, IMO, but I would naturally like the price to be as high as possible. I personally don't expect YMagis to in on the placing, just iis, like Katie Potts' HIT. they could take a fair share and not hold too large a share of the enlarged shares in issue. I guess we will find out soon enough, but I don't think that the Zoo BOD are in bed with YMagis on this, at all, whoever it was that suggested that "they might have done a deal".... If YMagis want zoo, as they very might, then if zoo are in a stronger cash position, this is much better from a Zoo shareholder perspective, as the company can fend off unwanted undervalued bids. NIA and DYOR
martina pescatore: I am still wondering what YMagis' intentions are. Personally, i think that it could be YMagis interest in Zoo that is being ovlooked here. Do YMagis see some value and synergies in Zoo products and if so, which ones in particular? Zoo have recently launched Zoo Screen, whilst YMagis are heavily invested in the servicing of hundreds of cinema complexes in Europe. Could Zoo Screen fit well with YMagis offering, perhaps going another step to reduce cinema costs and to improve against piracy, which the movie industry could insist upon if viable? As I shareholder I want Zoo to concentrate on running the business and to maximise shareholder value in this way. Day to day price fluctuations in the share price might be of interest to some but should not be to the BOD I feel. The direction of the business and the direction of the share price and the profitability and growth of the business and ensuring long term shareholder value, should all be though. Any placing will provide working capital for growth and should enhance shareholder value long term. This is a good thing usually. A better working capital position would also provide a degree a robustness against any bid for the company which might otherwise undervalue the company. I fully expect that any purchasers at the 20p high on Friday won't regret it in the medium term, if the company and work it all out as above. Even with 45m shares in issue and £1.5m in the bank, less £5m in debt, would on a net profit of £1.5m equate to eps of 3p. On a p/e of 20 (could be far too low if growth is 30%-40%) would indicate a share price of 60p (mkt cap of £27m), plus cash and less debt. Many other scenarios also. NIA and DYOR
martina pescatore: Zoo Digital have just exhibited at MIPTV (3-6 April) in Cannes, France. I fully expect that YMagis were there also. I wonder if Zoo's secretive new product (keep your ears peeled, they said) which was available as a sneak peak in Cannes, was of interest to YMagis. This acquisition by YMagis of 9% of Zoo shares on the 4 April and announced on 6 April could have been any number of things, including: 1. A precursor to a full acquisition for bolt on growth for YMagis (they have done much of this previously/recently)? 2. A defensive move to take out a competitor (or take on its products) who is going to cannibalise your own sales? 3. A long term strategic acquisition to build partnering relations for sharing technologies and skills? 4. A stake building/holding to prevent another from taking it? Any other ideas? Personally, I would expect any full bid to be way north of 48p per share which with 32.661M shares in issue = £15.68M mkt cap, plus buyer would take on debt of say £5M I think), therefore total price = £21M say. Zoo have T/O of circa $14M (£11.6M) I reckon for the full year to end 31 March 2017 so bolting Zoo to YMagis could make sense for YMagis at this price and they get the new products with ??? growth potential for nothing? but Zoo seem to be about to become profitable, therefore 48p could prove to be a very low price (IMO) in an years time. I don't expect Katie Potts (HIT) or Stuart Green (CEO) to undervalue the growth potential of the company though. Therefore, to truly value Zoo we need to know the growth potential and then recalculate. As an aside, I remember about three or four years ago an American company tried to bid for AMS (Advanced Medical Solutions) which I held and still hold. From memory, AMS share price was circa 70-80p at the time and the bid came at about 100-110p per share, so I was very pleased with this uplift. However, AMS Directors fought it and they and shareholders won. The bidder backed off and went away and the share price dropped back to 80p levels I think. However, year on year and half year on half year, AMS has continued to innovate, develop product and bring product to market, sales and profits have continued to grow STEADILY (circa 20% YOY), and the share price is now 250p. boy am I glad we didn't take the money from the bidder as it wouldn't have reflected the value in the potential growth of the business. NIA and DYOR.
martina pescatore: Mudbath Such a hypothetical scenario might result in: a) A Rights Issue to raise £2.5M before costs (£2.0M after costs) at 17p per share = 14.71 million new shares in issue. b) £3.0M of CLN converted to equity at the conversion price of 48p per share = 6.25 million new shares in issue. Current shares in issue = 32.661 million, with debt at circa £6M, I think, including CLN. After a) and b) above, the company would have only £3.0M in debt and £2.0M in the bank for working capital to build and grow the business. However, after a) and b) above there would now be circa 53.621 million shares in issue (i.e. 40% more shares). Therefore, eps would be significantly diminished, although I accept that the attractiveness of the company to the market would appear to be more appealing. At the half year basic eps was 2.07 cents (say 1.6p). The second half looks as if it might be similar to the first half, after the recent TU, therefore, let’s assume basic eps for the year at 3.2p, but based on 32.661 million shares in issue. If there were to be 53.621 million shares is issue, this eps becomes circa 1.95p, I think. Put the recapitalised company on a p/e of 10, this could give a share price of 19.5p (mkt cap of £10.46M). Too low? Maybe. So… On a p/e of 15, this would give a share price of 29.25p (mkt cap of £15.68M). Still too low, perhaps, for a company now with a minimal debt to cash ratio and profitable(?) and growing (EBITDA forecast to be up minimum of 800% for year end 31 March 2017, compared to previous year, as per recent TU)? Also remember that if £3.0M of CLN at 7.5% interest and £600,000 loan from wife of CEO at 10% interest, equates to nearly £300K in interest payments that will be massively reduced and the company becomes more profitable, all other things being equal. On a p/e of 20, this could give a share price of 39p (mkt cap of £20.92M). Or… On a p/e of 25, this could give a share price of 48.75p (mkt cap of £26.14M). If CLNs were to be converted, at the conversion price of 48p per share, this might after all suggest a fairer share price at close to 48p. The above are obviously crude calculations and are only suppositions of course. However, the p/e suggestions are not forward p/e’s, from where many growth companies appear to be assessed. NIA and DYOR of course.
mudbath: Good to see the positive reaction to this morning's trading update. If only the improved trading, EBITA etc managed to throw off significant cash then the ZOO share price might well take off. As it stands though,it does not. We will have to see how those discussions go with the Loan Note holders. They will surely want to see growing ZOO success and a rebasing of the LN terms allied to a some additional funding might prove to be a catalyst for more rapid future expansion,in all areas. imo.
martina pescatore: Indications from the company over the last few months have been good, which has unfortunately not always been the case for Zoo over recent years. In fact, Zoo have been telling a more positive story from my perspective for over a year now and the growth in t/o and a move into profit would indicate a new trend I hope, especially with the positive growth comments by the CEO and chairman. I believe that the current share price is very reflective of the past disappointments with the company, but if their turnaround continues, it would only be fair for the market, in my opinion, to reassess the company and a rerating should be on the cards. Meantime, I suppose it is an investors opportunity/risk to take. With the new products and services from the last year which are taking market share and growing, as per company statements, from a starting point of nil before the products/services came about, this points to further growth in t/o in my opinion. Also, as a software company, Zoo do have the potential to be very profitable, once costs and R+D are covered. The most recent interims indicated basic eps of 2.07 cents (1.65p per share at current US$1.22 = £1 exchange rate) and diluted eps of 1.59 cents (1.3p per share) for the six months to end September 2016. If Zoo can simply breakeven for the second half of the year to end 31 March 2017, by my calculations, the current share price of 10p equates to a P/E of less than 8 based on diluted eps of 1.3p per share, or a P/E of circa 6.1 on basic eps of 1.65p per share. Judging by what other companies P/E's are, this looks to be too low for a growing company. If Zoo can, however, produce a little profit for the second half as well, then perhaps full year basic eps of 3 cents (2.5p per share) might be achievable. This would put Zoo on a current P/E of 4 times basic eps of 2.5p per share (all projected of course). One can quite easily see potential share price growth from current levels if Zoo can continue their recent growth trend and continue adding clients and partners and continue bringing new products and services to market. Also, I have been watching the Zoo subs ticker quite a bit recently to see us pass the 150,000,000 mark, which we did yesterday. Over the last few weeks and months the Zoo subs ticker has been notching up at a rate of circa 1,000,000 per week. Yesterday morning the ticker read 149,918,688 at 07.30am and this morning it read 150,455,686 at 07.39am. A jump of over 500,000 in around one day. A very nice jump admittedly, but it would be nice for it to continue at these levels. NIA and DYOR
martina pescatore: I have been doing some crude "what if" calculations. If Zoo make a £1M profit this year (not impossible as they were EBITDA $0.9M at the half year and business appears to have been increasing), this £1M profit could be after tax as they have tax losses to use up I understand. If we adopt a p/e of 20 (not particularly high for a growth stock it would appear), this gives a mkt cap of £20M. Less dilution from options and debt, say £5M worth, give a diluted mkt cap of £15M. Crude, I know. With circa 33M shares in issue now, this gives a potential share price of 45p. This suggests to me that there is substantial potential upside from the current share price of 10.6p. Zoo has over the last few years or so failed to meet market expectations and the share price has been hammered, hammered so hard that at 6p (I think it reached) the mkt cap was circa £2M. The current share price of 10.6p in my opinion still reflects the previous disappointments that the company has offered the market, until it started recovering about a year or so ago, but it does not reflect much, if any, of the potential going forward. There in lies the potential for share price growth, particularly as the market they are operating in is growing, with clear growth trends and because Zoo seem to have a good product which is taking market share. If zoo can turn a profit and meet market expectations, then the rating the company is on should change. The market rating Zoo has been on suggests to me that the market has almost been not expecting anything, or anything other than disappointment, from Zoo. Therefore, if Zoo better this, and things are starting to look positive again, then market perceptions could quite easily change for the better, and logically market ratings should follow. Moving forward, if growth continues and Zoo were put on a forward P/E of 20, and were projected to make £2M next year, then the current share price looks particularly attractive. (£2m x 20 = £40M, less £5M for dilution and debt = £35M mkt cap (or 106p share price.) I daren't do the calculations going further forward, because the numbers and multiples of the current share price get silly. There would be ups and downs in the share price naturally if the above hypothesis materialises, but as long as the company can grow t/o and profits, and importantly meet or exceed market expectations, then the upward trajectory in the share price would normally follow. New buyers at higher prices than recent lows are often longer term holders/investors as they are seeing the story emerge and the potential achieved, when a company grows and grows. Ultimately, the aim would be for Zoo to start paying its shareholders for holding its shares and not expect shareholders to pay for holding them. All IMHO and NIA, etc.
