With 5400 shares traded it sure doesn't look like insiders have yet to begin their purchases. Yesterdays conference call injected little enthusiasm though things are getting better. The problem is that the turnaround is so slow that there is little incentive to rush to get involved. I am convinced that things will work out. Would seem to me that any company interested in getting in this space should be looking at TISA and saying this is the perfect time to buy the company. Mr. Nakar, where are you??? Now in your early 60's, maybe it is time to put the company up for sale. No doubt in my mind that multiple bidders would emerge. Guess we are faced with a slow turnaround that is well in place or rapid price appreciation through the sale of the company. Either one is a win win if an investor were to get involved at these prices.
When I see the report with the size of the purchase it will be a plus. Right now they are planning to buy, wonder how price sensitive they are. Bottomline to the conference call is that revenues are pretty much stuck at $30 million, as they have for many years [without the acquisition of Egistics]. The composition of those revenues with their re-occurring portion, rapidly growing USA based revenues, and SAAS make those revenues of a much higher quality. Unfortunately, there are about 10 investors who understand this. To others they see flat revenues, practically no earnings and a chart that looks moribund. Insider purchases will help a little, more detailed info from management, and maybe the hint of selling the company at the right time could help bring a little investor interest. Mr. Nakar, where are you????
It was the day of the earnings report and the company itself displayed a total lack of interest by not even having the earnings announcement out by 8:30 AM
With TISA closing at 3.01 on a record day for Nasdaq, management has some explaining to do. These announcements with little backup or detail mean nothing to the stock price. Management needs to lay out a clear concise plan for rapid growth and profitability. With stagnant sales and miniscule profits, investors best opportunity is to sell the company. With over 4 years for this team to get their plans in place it is time to know if it works - so far the investment community seems skeptical. Come on Nakar and company, make sure tomorrow your presentation is exciting.
It is becoming increasingly obvious that SPCB will not make an upward move until new contracts are announced. Although this year is pretty much assured and will also carry over till next year, until new contracts are inked investors will lack any visibility into 2016. That is why upon announcement of any significant new wins, this stock should move sharply higher. Investors would then have visibility into next year. Until this happens the stock will continue to drift.
Word must be leaking out about Bank of West and Fiserv as 500 shares have traded after an hour and the stock is up 2 cents. Maybe someone will ask a question on Tuesday's conference call and the 10 investors on the call will officially know about this. In this era of twitter, Facebook, etc. we are still using Pony Express to spread the word to the 30 investors that already know about this company. The idea of attracting new investors is somehow beyond this team and its IR department. Sad
WHY NO PRESS RELEASE FROM TISA. They have an internal PR person, a PR firm in the USA and yet one has to go to a website of another company to find this out. Why are we paying these people. As you can see from the volume this news has generated practically no interest
Seems like day number 400 of Groundhog Day. Getting pretty obvious why volume and interest has dried up. Would hope that management has some good news to deliver on Tuesday and has sharpened their message to give investors some confidence that a period of rapid, sustained growth is about to begin. Without a message that powerful, I would vote to just sell the company. Time for management to deliver and after the quiet period ends [around earnings] to step up and buy some stock.
With rumors swirling that Bank of the West is a new account, an enhanced relationship with Fiserv, new partnerships coming, etc. will the company finally give investors some hard facts on their conference call? Would expect some announcements shortly or else it will be more of the same = lots of hope and little realization on the revenue or profit line. Time for management to deliver some real signs of progress.
Maybe some of the analysts will ask some tough questions of TISA management like when will organic growth resume, what kind of revenues are all these partnerships generating, why no insider buying, what kind of growth rate can investors expect, would company entertain offers to purchase the company, etc. After all these years with the Nakar team running the company and given the lack of performance of the stock and extremely low valuation, investors have a right to ask and get some answers.
Sounds like we are all in agreement. Everything appears to be in place for explosive growth in rapidly expanding markets but unfortunately that growth always seems a few quarters away. Is it a management problem with being able to close the deal or is it that corporations don't want to deal with a microcap company. This is one reason I sometimes think that the best course of action is to sell the company to a larger cap company that is more capable of closing the deal. Would still love to see some insider buying as a show of confidence by management.
Not sure why TISA is so despised by investors but there is obviously a market maker or one incredibly large investor that can't wait to sell into any large bid. Feels like even if the company got a takeover bid at $5 it would have trouble going much over $3. Management has done an extremely weak job of conveying any improvement in the business to investors or the analytical community. Still think that the most beneficial thing that Nakar and company can do in the short term is to purchase some stock and send a message that they believe. Sad to watch Nasdaq hit new highs and TISA bounce around its lows.
Of course management could give us confidence by purchasing some stock. With all the management changes it sure would be nice if some of them would display confidence and purchase stock in the open market. I realize Nakar owns a decent amount of stock but if you are convinced the stock is going up you can never own enough. Show some confidence management and make those Insider Purchases, then the announcements will have real meaning.
Hearing that TISA announced today a partnership with Darwood UK which has 18,000 clients. They have already developed over 500k dollars in joint opportunities. Not sure if this means orders already signed or proposals - but that is what makes TISA so hard to get a handle on. Still progress seems to made and the stock continues to stay in a "show me attitude".
TISA today announced another partnership and investors asked what does it mean. There are never any revenue numbers, deal sizes, or any hint of what it would mean to internal revenue projections. Given the past history, investors are right to ask why rush, let's see it in the numbers before attaching any meaning to the announcement. I truly believe that much progress is being made but until the revenue numbers pick up and confirm that the deals are meaningful, TISA will remain a "show me" stock.
Fiserv, a $22 billion dollar market cap company and the leading provider of financial technology services to the financial services industry, tells the investment community that the big growth in the future is mobile processing and capture and they have basically chosen TISA to be the imbedded technology in all these new products. TISA, a $40 million revenue company selling at under a $50 million market cap [way under other companies in the industry] goes nowhere. This should be important news yet an investor has to dig it out of blogs, etc. At the very least it says that the leading company in the industry realizes they need TISA, who has the best technology, to enable them to capture this huge growth segment of the market. Certainly if TISA can't get their stock higher, someone is just going to steal this company for a very low price. What am I missing???
may have to copy and paste to get to the website, but the highlight was Depositing a check, paying a bill or managing receipts are only the first of many services that will be transformed by mobile image capture. Together with TIS, Fiserv is pursuing many other mobile imaging applications, including debit and credit card capture for mobile payments, check capture for mobile deposits and account opening, driver's license capture for mobile enrollments, among other innovative uses of mobile capture capabilities.
