plok: I’ve not heard of them but they are more on the ball than Zoo with a press release, this is from their website. “As the amount of streaming content available has grown and spread to more global markets, so has the need for multilingual subtitle and dubbing services to bring TV shows and movies to audiences in more languages faster,” said Cory Sher, VP of global sales & business development, Whip Media Group. “We’re thrilled to partner with ZOO Digital and provide to our clients the ability to more efficiently localize their new and catalog content and grow their audiences worldwide.” Zoo Digital uses more than 7,200 native translators to provide subtitles and captions in over 80 languages. “We are very excited to partner with a company so closely aligned with our own digital strategy. We quickly identified a seamless workflow with Whip Media which will provide full transparency on localization order management for their global client portfolio,” said Mazin Al-Jumaili, director business development EMEA, at Zoo Digital. “As worldwide OTT platforms build momentum in local content publishing, both companies are perfectly positioned to offer a global supply chain solution.”

snoper: Interesting market intel came out recently in Disney Q3 results: Disney+ hitting 60m subscribers. Note this was 50m in april and 28m in february Disney aiming to launch new OTC service in 2021 "Star", with already owned content from ABC Studios, Fox Television, FX, Freeform, 20th Century Studios and Searchlight. It will be integrated in the existing Disney+ channel Note that earlier, Disney indicated they might provide their Hulu content outside of the US as well (35m subscribers in US) Mulan premiering on Disney+, following a number of premier delays (covid-19 driven) -> price on top of monthly subscription fee and varying per region Review the Q3 results. Clearly Disney+ is an extremely important strategic asset for Disney, especially under covid-19 circumstances with all other business units showing weak trading. Zoo is one of 3 premier localization partners for Disney+, providing localization services and their ZooStudio is the platform of choice for Disney+. Also, just yesterday I saw a new opening at Zoo as account manager: "We are currently looking for an Account Manager that will be implanted within Fox/Disney Localization Teams." next to a number of other recent openings.

snoper: @heialex1, a few things going on/thoughts on my end concerning Zoo and its market: 1. Netflix being the gorilla in the OTT landscape with c.180m subscribers still does its dubbing on premise i.e. has not adopted a cloud strategy for dubbing. This is anecdotally and I am not sure if this is still 100% true for all content (if someone has any public materials which say otherwise, feel free to share) 2. Netflix tried to do localization in-house ("Project Hermes") and pulled the plug in Q4 2018 I believe, it was too difficult. I am comfortable with that type of risk going forward (i.e. players moving forward into the value chain). This caused somewhat of a hiatus in the localization landscape and especially for Zoo adopting a OTT focused strategy (note this impacted FY19) 3. Zoo's appointment as a top 3 "preferred" localization partner for Disney+. Huge deal. Disney+ getting a lot of traction with currently 50m subscribers I believe, some estimates say this might move to 250m in the future. 4. Zoo's recent hiring in dubbing -> appointing a number of senior dubbing personnel. Goes to show that there definitely is traction in that category, I believe this to be Disney+ driven. 5. Decline of legacy business. Plenty of information on Zoo's investor relations website to check this out. Legacy business has phased out significantly in recent periods. You mention that Zoo "has not exploded" implying you were expecting Zoo to have a highly scalable model. Clearly it has taken Zoo more effort as originally expected to generate value. Part driven by external market factors, but I also believe that it is driven by Zoo's USP vs. competition. The USP that Zoo's offer to OTT providers are in short (i) a sophisticated platform "ZooStudio" offering full breadth of localization services, with the main advantages being speed of work (i.e. faster turnaround) and fewer errors (due to a number of smart functionalities in the platform). (ii) to more easily manage the content funnel a OTT provider is feeding into the localization market (which played a key role for Zoo getting the appointment as one out of 3 preferred parties at Dinsey+) - which has another angle to it which I think should be mentioned seperately namely (iii) Zoo's large network of localization talent + it is cloud based, making it more efficient vs. brick and mortar type competitors. Note localization is a service, not a product. As a holder of Zoo stock I believe in the USPs Zoo has and the value it could create - but I am also aware that it takes time to educate the market, which has been functioning the same way for decades (this concerns the actual localizers e.g. dubbing directors, voice talent etc.). Zoo's initial explosive growth was congruent with Netflix's explosive growth, which currently is not explosive anymore. However there are a number of other competitors getting very strong traction and Zoo is positioned as a top contender for RfPs coming to market. A number of recent high profile appointments including Disney+ are proof of this. I am bullish on the continued footprint of Zoo as a go to partner for OTT players looking to get their content localized in a cost effective and fast manner without any loss of quality. A final thought on my end is that I am very curious to see how long Netflix will continue with its strategy for brick and mortar dubbing only. At some point, cloud dubbing will be a mainstream solution vs. the niche it still is today. Zoo is a front runner and innovator in this niche. Hope this helps.

uknighted: Extract from Zoo Investors Newsletter email received this morning “ Welcome to our latest edition of the quarterly investor newsletter from ZOO Digital, featuring trade announcements, ZOO news and relevant industry developments. The COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on almost every business sector. In the case of ZOO, we provided trading updates in March and May to explain that the situation has opened new opportunities for the company, particularly in the area of cloud dubbing. As a provider of services delivered through proprietary cloud-based platforms, ZOO has been largely unaffected by the lockdown and social distancing measures that have been so detrimental elsewhere. The Mello 2020 growth company investor conference, scheduled for May, was postponed due to COVID-19 and has now been rescheduled to take place later this year. ZOO expects to present at the event on 1st December. We will keep you posted on further developments. Our 2020 preliminary results presentation will be available as a live webcast ”

martina pescatore: Very interesting news article on Zoo website today. headline text reads "...Team ZOO reaches 100 UK staff following remote onboarding drive Friday, May 15, 2020 ZOO Digital has further strengthened its localization offering to the entertainment industry with a stream of new hires. Following increased demand for its cloud-based dubbing, subtitling and digital distribution services, the remote onboarding drive sees Team ZOO grow to over 100 staff in the UK despite national lockdown...." All very encouraging IMO, especially the parts about... "...Hires across dubbing, software development, HR and finance come during a time of global growth for the company, undeterred by various national lockdowns amid the coronavirus pandemic...." and "...As a result of being well established in the world of cloud dubbing, ZOO has seen a surge in demand for our cloud-powered services. Cloud dubbing and its remote working capabilities offer the biggest names in entertainment a proven, tried-and-trusted service rather than a quick-fix pieced together in a time of crisis...." and "...While further expansion was always part of the plan, this influx of exciting new projects from global content owners has encouraged action, as we seek out the best talent offered in the industry...."

martina pescatore: Looking at the Zoo website NBC Universal are clearly prominent as one of the content owners that trust Zoo. Looking at the Post Production section of Zoos website there are three company logos clearly listed: Disney, Netflix PFP and NBC Universal. Looking at recent Zoo tweets, I am encouraged by the tweet on 14 April 2020, stating ...” ZOO is working with customers and the #dubbing industry to rapidly upscale its existing cloud dubbing services to help established directors and voice artists to make the switch to work-from-home dubbing....” The part about working with customers AND the dubbing industry is very intriguing. Also “to help established directors and voice artists” etc. It could be that the the industry needs Zoos technology. If that is the case, and under the global lockdown situation, how else can content owners get their content dubbed professionally and securely (?) then I would expect Zoo to be awfully busy for the foreseeable and there is the potential that those that switch to Zoodubs for the moment might never go back to the old way.

tkamp: Zoo's share price is a volatile as ever today. For me personally the investment case for Zoo has changed a lot since I sold out at 135p after the first batch of bad news. Before the bad news this was an exponential growth story for me, with accelerating sales growth and strong margin appreciation. If such a scenario were plausible a share price of 400-500p would have been warranted within 2 years or so. This was also a high-conviction scenario for me, as in that I had high conviction there would be a steep growth trajectory with few hurdles for several years to come. Recently I bought back in at 50p, but with a different story. I now realize it's path to 'greatness' is much less certain and that there are several things holding them back (management should be allocated blame for misrepresenting facts to investors though. e.g. not informing the market about a massive one-off $2.5M deal). I now see 2 scenarios for Zoo: 1. Sluggish, unstable, relatively low growth (e.g. 5-10% p.a.) with margins never reaching their high of 2017 again (2017 EBITDA was 11%). Basically in this scenario profits/cash flows will never be material and the company stand-alone has very little value. The only value in such a scenario would come from a competitor buying it up (presumably at a fairly low price, say 30-40p a share). 2. A positive tail-event takes place that catapults Zoo's growth. In the past such an event was the adoption of ZooSubs by Netflix (preferred vendor standard) that helped double Sub revenues within 12 months. A new such event could be Netflix giving ZooDubs preferred vendor status. If that were to happen the impact would easily be 10x that of the ZooSubs situation as Dubbing is way more expensive than subbing. If ZooDubs gets adopted by Netflix this share will easily surpass previous levels of 160p. Another positive tail-event could be widespread adoption of ZooStudio, or Zoo becoming a top-tier supplier of dubbing for another huge OTT vendor like Disney. I am not sure how likely either scenario is. While in the past I was very bullish I now wouldn't put much more than a 50% probability on scenario 2, probably even lower than that (~30%?). However, the value you would capture in scenario 2 is many times larger than the value you would lose in scenario 1 (e.g. 50% downside vs. 300-500% upside). I also think there is some upside to scenario 1 where maybe sales growth a low rates but margins do recover as Zoo invests less in new products. E.g. if you model 10% sales growth for the next 2 years and assume EBITDA margins reach 12.5% by FY2021 (only 1.5% above FY2017) then you get an EBITDA of $4.4M, which is 11.5x today's EV. Hence Zoo has really become a 'base scenario is negative but Expected Value is positive' type of investment. That's why I no longer have >50% of my portfolio invested in it but instead a much more modest amount (5-10%). If the price goes so low that the value at risk of scenario 1 becomes very low I will be adding more aggressively. PS: Peachie, with all due respect but you're acting like bit of a clown here. Propping up Zoo in every post and then all of a sudden selling out because you cannot handle the volatility? People who whine about short-sellers are people who shouldn't be investing in the first place. If you have conviction in your position you do not care about that, and even use the opportunities short sellers provide you with. The convertible isn't due for another 1.5 years so depressing the price now doesn't damage the actual operations of Zoo (in which, let me remind you, you are actually invested, not just a digital ticker) in any shape or form.
