Company will join the Russell Microcap® Index when Russell Investments reconstitutes its comprehensive set of U.S. and global equity indexes on June 26, according to a preliminary list of additions posted June 12.
On June 17, 2015, Inuvo, Inc. issued a press release announcing that it has been selected to join the Russell Microcap Index as part of Russell Investments reconstitution of its comprehensive set of U.S. and global equity
come on lee you've been harping on the same old story for the last decade....so on that you're right....but we're all tired of it...we've all made a lot of money on Inuvo whie you've been twiddling your thumbs and sulking about what happened in the past...time for you to move on and get with the program....
Inuvo is going to give a presentation on 6/2/15 @ LDMIcro and I thought it would be interesting to go back one year when they did their presentation @ LD last time. Back then Inuvo was trading @ $0.89 and Locm was trading at $1.76. Between last June and this year Inuvo insiders bought over 400,000 shares compared to Locm insiders buying a whopping 2,000 shares of their own stock. I know you have always been very critical of Inuvo management but comparing the stock prices between the two companies today I would say that Inuvo management is doing something very right and Locm management....oh well !!
Inuvo is an advertising technology and digital publishing company that delivers purchase-ready customers to advertisers through a broad network of desktop and mobile websites and apps.
Scalable business model
2014: $50M Revenue, $5.5M AEBITDA, $2.1M Net Profit
YOY Growth: 36% in Q4 2014 and 33% in Q1 2015
Also has been profitable for the last 5 consecutive quarters
With proprietary content, ad-tech and a network for the distribution of ads
During Q1 of 2015, 35% of overall revenue was from mobile
Long standing partnerships with Yahoo! & Google that can fuel growth
Trading at attractive multiples for an Native Ad-Tech and Content business
Key to Inuvo s results in 2015 will be the success of the rollout of its new native advertising product
SearchLinks. The company is currently in beta with a half a dozen ad partners and plans are to launch in
Q3 with noticeable results in Q4. This product should be unique but similar to products from Taboola and
Outbrain. Both companies are private Israeli companies based in NYC. Both use behavioral targeting to
recommend content to users as a way of encouraging them to stay on sites. Web publishers then buy
and sell traffic to their sites. In contrast, Inuvo will recommend ads, rather than content, to drive
purchasing for advertisers.
Outbrain, based in Netanya, Israel, is the older of the two and founded in 2006 and has $99 million in
funding. It has approximately 470 employees. In 2013, Outbrain did $130 million in revenues, up 63%. It
is rumored to IPO at between $700-800 million. If Outbrain grew 50% in 2014 to $195, that would be a
trailing valuation of 3.8 times.
Taboola has raised $157 million and has 250 employees. The latest round was on February 4, 2015. In
February management said the company was at a $250 run rate and the last round is rumored to be post
money shy of $1 billion. That would probably be 3.5 times the run rate.
These two companies evidence that this type of business could yield a much higher valuation for Inuvo.
Outbrain has already filed for a public offering and any interest garnered by this IPO could rub off on
Inuvo. If nothing else, it could increase the valuation of the average comps and add to the company s
potential target price.
"We believe INUV is partly differentiated because it has leveraged its core technology to create its own systems for analytics, advertising, and content management. This helps the company to reduce reliance on external partners and maintain better control of operational strategy," the HC Wainwright report stated.
Last March the company did do a presentation for a Roth conference in Dana Point. I'm sure they didn't do another last week but rather probably stopped by for a visit while they were in CA for Riley. The two cities are only about 60 miles apart. Seems to me that there's another conference coming up next month but I can't remember where. I'm very glad to see that management is being more active in getting the story in front of investors.
Last week Rich Howe gave a presentation to Roth Capital Partners on 5/13. The next day 5/14 was the day the stock traded over a million shares. I would say that someone liked what they were hearing....
I'm still curious about Privacy Star. I think that company has been around since 2008 and I have no idea of their annual revenues. I mean we all know that we have an obvious connection with Charles Morgan being involved with both companies. I wonder if there would ever be a chance of both companies becoming one? It's still interesting that they're both moving to Little Rock together.
It's always amazing to me when I see an insider like Chas.Morgan buy 25,000 shares one day last week @$2.15 and then a couple days later buy another 37,000 shares @$2.12 and then see the market maker trying to push the price down under two dollars this week. I really think Charles knows what's going on better than any market maker.
