    Default TeamTalk IPO

    This company seems to have a monopoly position in a niche market within the communucations industry.

    Major risks include commercially competitive technological advances in the cellular / mobile radio market.

    positives include monopoly market share with very high barriers to competitive entry (high startup costs etc).



    Forsyth barr are have a valuation range of $2.29 - $2.64. Although they are the lead brokers for the issue.

    Listing May 6th, issue price of $1.75 giving a market capitalisation of $35m.

    Prospectus forecasts a divvy of 12.8pc per annum, (with the an interim dividend payout in May straight after listing).

    According to Forsyth Barr the issue has been VERY popular. I managed to get a few - not as much as I would have liked, anyone have any interesting thoughts on this company?

    Well actually, I did make an attempt to ensure my post was balanced by pointing out downside risk and the conflict of interest of the lead brokers valuation

    I certainly didnt get as many as I wanted. It pays to make the odd trade through all the main retail brokers to ensure access to these opportunities.

    Who are the principals, Doctor, and what do you know about them? The only name I've heard is David Ware, chief executive. (Obviously I don't have a prospectus)

    I've received a prospectus and they look ok but I can't get an allocation. Forsyth Barr, whom I don't usually deal with, are the lead manager and have dished out everything already. Tried two other brokers that I sometime buy through and they have none of their tiny quoata left . There is no public pool.
    Looks like the stags will do ok on this one.

    I looked too and my perception was an honest float. With a bit more capital I think they will meet a demand from customers. I like the product and think there is room for a win/win in meeting some companies needs for low cost mobile comms.
    And yes, sigh, Forsyth Barr would have none of me either.
    think Teamtalk will have a successful float and wish them luck with their plans to provide an expanded service to companies that can use their products. I think there are many.
    Discl: Wish I had some, and no I don't work for them!

    This company has a monopolistic position and a nice dividend yield but what makes me wary is the risk that technological advances will blow them out of the water. What have they got that is long term sustainable and where will they be in 10 years time? Are they just a cash cow to be milked for the next 5 years or so? Keen to hear answers from anyone who has read the prospectus.

    I have similar concerns regarding technological advances. Especially cellular technology. Telecom dumped their entire mobile radio network to these guys, I would guess that Telecom had decided it didn't fit within their plans for future technologies.

    Vodaphone seem to be very activily (and effectively IMO) marketing their cellular business services and new technologies. Based on their success in capturing market share in the personal cellphone market, I would guess (from my very limited perspective) that they will be have some degree of success with their new pursuit against Telecoms market share of business customers.

    Could all this business focus put the mobile radio market into vodafones crosshairs?

    FLLYR: TTK: Full Year to 30/06/2004 $2.622M ($3.091M) -15.2% DIV 9CPS

    TRADING RESULT

    Operating performance for the year exceeded expectations with a Net Surplus
    for the year of $2.62 million, which is 26% ahead of the prospectus forecast.
    This reflects stronger than anticipated demand for services in the second
    half of the year, including TeamTalk's recently launched finance product,
    together with continued tight control of costs. Over the year there was
    continued modest growth in both subscriber numbers and revenue per
    subscriber.

    As signalled to the market with its profit upgrade announcement in May the
    company has exceeded its IPO forecasts. The key comparatives for the Group
    2004 results are:

    IPO Forecast $000; Actual $000

    Operating Revenue: 19,560;19,892
    EBITDA: 7,974;8,606
    Net surplus before tax: 3,534;4,372
    Net surplus after tax: 2,086;2,622
    Earnings per share (pre goodwill amortisation): 14.6;17.3
    Dividends(cps): 15.0;16.5

    Great result. Market must have been expecting more. What a fantastic divvie.

    Stumbled across this quiet little earner, seems to be a good dividend play.

    They have maintained good sales growth and have seemed to keep ahead of the technology threat that could easily erode their business.

    The recession has not hurt their sales, but will be interesting to see how their margins have held up when the financial s are released.

    Strong growth in mobile broadband this year. The next couple of years could be very interesting. No sell offers at present though

    TeamTalk Submits Govt Broadband Response
    TeamTalk announced today that together with well known civil contractor Fulton Hogan it has submitted a response to the Government’s Ultra Fast Broadband initiative.

    If successful this will see TeamTalk’s wholly owned subsidiary CityLink join forces with Fulton Hogan to build and operate a fibre optic based telecommunications network throughout the Wellington region.

    TeamTalk’s Managing Director, David Ware is very excited by the proposition. “We’ve got 15 years experience in providing Wellingtonians with the fastest broadband at the lowest cost. With Government support it means that we will be able to get out there and finish the job. We will be able to provide service in the parts of the region we don’t currently serve” Ware said.

    “What really gave us confidence to embark on this project was the overwhelming encouragement and support that we’ve received from Wellingtonians from all walks of life. Be they business people, Council representatives or regular householders they all want to see CityLink get out there and do the business. I think they all realise that the choice facing the Government is whether they create a vibrant competitive market for broadband, or whether they hand Telecom a monopoly for the next 50 years” Ware commented.




    Any current holders have thoughts, or more indepth analysis about TTK's direction?

    TeamTalk Half Year Profit Up 38%


    TeamTalk announced a half year net surplus after tax of $1.98m up 38% on the same period last year. The increase is largely attributable to a substantial reduction in finance costs, including a reversal in the IFRS related revaluations of interest rate hedges. At an operating level revenues for the period were flat at $15.3m versus $15.5m for the same period last year as the group experienced extremely tight trading conditions. Both CityLink and TeamTalk’s mobile radio division experienced unprecedented churn as customers either downsized their businesses or, in some unfortunate instances, went out of business altogether.

    What gives us heart for the future however, as it demonstrates the compelling proposition that our businesses offer, is that there was negligible churn to our competitors. This has seen us remain optimistic about the future meaning we have continued to invest for growth. In particular CityLink dedicated substantial resources to the Government’s UFB response and Araneo (our wireless broadband subsidiary) increased staff resources in order to meet the demand that is building in its sales pipeline. These two factors alone resulted in an increase in costs of over $0.3m.

    Over the period the group continued to generate strong cashflows. This enabled the group to invest $3.8m in growth initiatives at the same time as reducing net debt by $1.3m and maintaining its historic dividend policy.
