clearly most hate this share...years of losses...strange decision not to accept COMS offer...placings..management changes
...but have they become too negative?
...It's a v risky punt
...but with EV/gross profits <1 & nearly breakeven (many other on AIM spring to mind?), this is cheap for another company...which can strip out many of the fixed costs that cause problems below gross profit ... (this is one of the standard ways M&A looks at deals)

good question and a comparatively large buy on tuesday - causing the price to jump..... As far as I can see - pinn han't made a profit over the last 5 years.... 2m loss last year and managed a placing at he start of this year which generated .5m.... hmmmm... The first thing that the new CEO did was to sell shares @ 12p.... If the board thought that coms undervalued the company around the 21p mark - I wonder what they think of the value now.... the bare minimum of newsflow which is going to be a great help with the shareprice dipping.... no wonder there isn't a lot of confidence in the management if it's costing money to win business after all this time.... However - the situation would look a lot brighter if they could strip out some of the overheads and 10m t/o represents a useful userbase to convert.... My main negative is that they aren't telling us what they propose to do to make a profit - the new CEO must surely have some ideas to put forward by now - maybe working for COMS is one of them.... I can't see that being the case though but...... and still no news from coms
