#Share based payments
Added 6 months ago

As #Noddy74 has pointed out the share based payments made by BET in FY22 take you breath away.

Performance Rights of just shy of 155m granted in a company that has shares on issue of 904m is pretty extreme. But consider that BET recorded revenue of just $92m and these rights had a value of $71m at the time they were granted. One wonders how much of this company's future profits (if indeed the company achieves that lofty goal) will be vacuumed up by insiders. At least this type of transaction is highlighted in the profit and loss account as an expense - which it is. This expense contributed significantly to the pretax loss of $96m.

The transactions are shown in the presentation that was released at the same time as the results were announced but I would have thought that these should have featured prominently in the Annual Report.

I was going to write a straw about why I'd sold out of Environmental Group (EGL) on the basis that I felt the Board has structured the performance scheme such that all the company's growth is being given directly to the CEO and CFO, via excessive performance options set with too low a bar. Then I saw Betmakers result. Holy guacamole Batman...

If someone can make sense of note 34 such that it ties back to anything close to $71m you're doing better than me.

Valuation of $1.900
stale
Added 6 months ago

I find it almost impossible to put a meaningful valuation of this company due to the extreme growth in revenue, expenses and share count particularly over the previous 12 months.

I see that @TEPCapital attempted a valuation approximately 1 year ago based on Q on Q growth of 75% and estimated FY22 revenue of $162M. Valuation of $0.95.

Here are the challenges:

1.      Revenue growth of 370% FY22 over FY21.

2.      Expenses growth (estimated) ~100%.

3.      Share count growth ~26%.

On review of the Q4 FY22 Investor Presentation there are some considerations to guide future predictions:

1.      There were 10 active platform clients at 31/12/21. 18 Platform clients at 30/6/22. They estimate 25 active platform clients at 31/12/22. I expect this rate of growth can’t continue?

2.      BET have invested heavily in growing the global TOTE business and adding platform clients. These investment spends are ahead of the growth curve and cash flow benefits will follow. This is evidenced via the extreme revenue growth numbers.

3.      Current turnover of $2B is 85% Australian Market. There are numerous global betting services deals that are yet to contribute to revenue. Penn National Gaming went live 1/7/22, Monmouth Park live July 2022. Other deals include Caesars(US), South America, Ontario, Norway…

4.      $87.6M in cash and no debt at 30/6/22.

5.      Lots of opportunities to invest globally but have the option to buy back shares if this is the best investment opportunity.

My valuation is based on:

1.      Annual revenue growth of 50% reducing to 10% over 10 years.

2.      Expenses growing at 25% reducing to 10% over 10 years.

3.      Share count growing at 5% over 10 years (reduced rate due to possible buy back).

4.      PE of 20 at Year 10. Discount rate of 15% due to high risk

Today’s valuation $1.90

Betmakers has announced that it will take advantage of the depressed share price and buy back up to 10% of shares on offer on market over the next 12 months. This is the only announcement today but the share price is up 25% which seems to be a very strong reaction to the news albeit off a very low price compared to 9 months ago when it closed at over $1.30.

I distinctly remember some "expert" on ausbiz a couple of months ago saying this was "a screaming buy" if it got to 60 cents. What is it now????

Super smart management.

Held a bit in RL (sold a lot at a loss) after going in full bore during hype. Pre TAB pitch. HC community was supercharged. I haven't checked since.

Still hold a bit because they are picks and shovels. And they're smart. Bumpy ride for me. Maybe not for you at these prices.

Another interesting announcement from Betmakers this morning. A minimum 10 year agreement with Rikstoto to be the provider of parimutuel betting in Norway. Rikstoto have exclusive rights in the country. I don't imagine this will have a huge impact on future reveues and reading their announcement it also is light on details around the financials of the deal but still a positive that they are landing deals across the world.

@occy good call. Market including me in RL obviously needed this. Been along the rough RL road with this before and after the TAB thing. One of the most engaged and argumentative HC threads. Talk and proof of massive short selling six months ago. I left it alone/after six months of engaging. Sold a lot. At a loss. Held some because of smarter people than I/me at the helm/Management. Online betting super competitive. Seems to me they're not playing there. Picks and shovels smart is where they're working. Figure Management knows their long race painful but rewarding?plan. That's why I'm still RL in. P.S. Flashback to pre Ukraine/irrelevant to betting maybe? Or more relevant. 26.26min in...

#Trading Halt

Added 10 months ago

BET is currently in a trading halt. One would assume it would relate to the recent media speculation over the past couple of months regarding News Ltd and Matthew Tripp (creator of BetEasy and Sportsbet) launching a new betting agency. As the article linked below suggests, Betmakers will likely supply the OS for the new operation given Tripp is an advisor to the company too

BET too, is heading in the right direction.

Q1 FY22 Quarterly Activities Report for the period ending 30 September 2021

$21.0 MILLION IN CASH RECEIPTS - UP 135% ON PREVIOUS QUARTER

Quarterly highlights



BetMakers Chief Executive Officer, Todd Buckingham said:

“The past quarter is a very pleasing result for the Company. We have seen an impressive uplift on our strong base of domestic operations while also capturing growth in global markets that were identified by the Company as opportunities for us to expand our B2B wagering technology products and services globally.

“BetMakers has a very clear strategy for growth in Australia and the United States, and is investing in the US opportunity, which we believe has the potential to be significant. Our rollout for Fixed Odds in the US, starting in New Jersey, progressed during Q4 FY21 after being passed unanimously by the Senate and General Assembly, and signed into law by the Governor of New Jersey. Everything is on track and we are excited about the journey ahead.

“The Company is now seeing the benefit of its acquisition of Sportech’s racing, tote and digital assets. This material acquisition is a cornerstone of our future plans, and we are delighted to have welcomed staff within these businesses into the BetMakers’ team.

“With a clear strategy, focused management, highly-skilled global staff and the opening up of sizeable opportunities across the world’s wagering markets, we believe BetMakers is well placed to build upon the foundations it has now established.”

Valuation of $0.950
stale
Added one year ago
BET recorded receipts of $8.9M in Q4-FY21, up from $5.2M in the previous quarter (Q3-FY21) (up 75%). If this extremely ambitious rate of growth continued (75% per quarter), BET would reach FY22 revenue of circa $162M. For a fast-growing technology group, the market should be paying around a 5x revenue multiple. That equates to a 12-month fair value price target of circa $810M. With 856M shares on issue, I arrive at a fair value price target of 95c versus the current price of $1.22. I believe the current market cap has overshot fair value and is dangerously in bubble territory. Everything needs to go well over the next few years for BET to justify its current valuation. Greed alert; investors beware.

I belive that Betmakers is making the same progress upwards as Pointsbet (end user) although different business models, but from a long term background play. Pointsbet is the end user but its actually Betmakers the business in the background that will deliver long term results. The companies with affiliation to Betmakers will be the ones that drive the market of betting but its the innovation in the backend which will be the winner (Dont need marketing hype and big name sportspeople unlike frontend players like Pointsbet) while Betmakers will continue to innovate in the back end with a diverse range of clients this will help them stay infront of what different markets needs which will intern help overall business development, so while all End Users all compete for market dominance Betmakers will be piggy backing them all so to speak. I beleive currently things are looking up in terms of US strategy and other countries, let alone our own. I look forward to see what next year or two brings, I'd imagine with the odd expansion headaches. But very positive outlook I would have thought.

Disc: I hold BET shares and enjoying the ride....
