SodaStream International Ltd. (SODA) Message Board

    Status update

    Soda continues steady organic growth without any major changes.

    Seth has confirmed Soda is in product development with 2 new partners.

    Soda cancelled at the Oppenheimer conference, a program it has attended for years. Partnerships can proceed to buyouts. Why by a piece when you can eat the whole pie.

    I prefer a partnership to buyout. I want a 10 bagger out of Soda. Not a buyout.

    • Sodastream management responds to the report of Oppenheimers Consumer Conference cancellation: "In a statement to StreetInsider, SodaStream President Yonah Lloyd said "... as we just did a well-attended investor day in Mid-May, and I just marketed in both Baltimore and NYC last week we decided not to go out again only a few weeks later."

      This makes sense, as Sodastream hosted it's very first Analyst Day this year......and just weeks ago. A buy-out or material event "in play" would've likely followed the typical "no comment" response from the company - rather than this elaborate reply from the CEO.

      Looks like a suckers bet.

    • Question. If the CEO biggest worry was an early takeover did the company put extra measures to discourage a takeover (poison pill).

    • Doc, I agree with you. I rather see a partnership. Fun to see how much higher it goes once the partnerships are announced.

      Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • "Why by a piece when you can eat the whole pie. " I don't think that's an actual aphorism, but there are plenty of reasons you might want to ride along on another company's coat tails and not want to buy the whole thing.
