    Default NEA - Nearmap

    Provider of aerial photographs to government and enterprise. Have recently moved to a subscription model, and is now generating substantial amounts of cash and is operationally profitable. Aerial mapping system is patented (recently granted a US patent), and they are looking to expand outside of Australia. Excellent prospects.

    Should have posted this earlier, as its been on a bender, and I am already up 64% so apologies for drawing this to your attention so late

    Still think its worth a look? Looks like its heading to be a bit pricy for what it is, e.g. are we going to see a correction at all, or just ride the wave

    Looks like a good result, I'm in.

    Looks like, if they don't spend the money on acquisitions or something similar, could be divies at some point. Quite a bit of cash on hand!

    ?? There has been no SPP from NEA. They have plenty of cash already

    good presentation, huge potential.

    Multiple industries.

    Would like to know of any competition? (huge advantage over google is regular updates and tools)

    Also how do they actually take these images? How often? and at what cost?

    First go to place when researching what a company does, do they have exclusive rights to the technology? Patent search.

    https://docs.google.com/viewer?url=p...0130235199.pdf

    Let me know if the links doesn't work, but its good they have patented process for this. Just another added benefit IMHO.

    DISC: Holding and have done my homework.

    I would have thought that google would have been one of there main competitions. Google compares to NearMap because it is free generally, so its for the every day punter to look at his house etc etc

    As you said the main advantages are the tools and regular updates. The updates are way more regular than google. To put this in perspective, I live in Auckland which is a major metropolitan center and 3 years ago a house was built across the road from me. In google maps its still under construction.

    Now I realise that NearMaps is Australian only, but they seem to be targeting a market that will pay for the service and use their increased accuracy, clarity (down to 1cm) and update time to increase their own profitability. This is a better market than googles free one

    The photos are taken from a plane fitted out with there patented technology. The photos in Australia are updated quarterly, and in some places up to 12 times a year e.g. main metropolitan areas.

    All in all, I think there is huge room for expansion outside of Australia.

    Google should hire them to redo their maps

    Yeah I've bought into this stock as well. I like the look of everything I have read. Love the subscription service with annual renewals. And as someone who has just purchased a property, I would have loved this tool to measure up everything about the property 'from the sky' as part of my research.... so I can only imagine how helpful it would be to RMA lawyers, engineers, architects, construction companies to use this....

    With this company, I also like the feeling of being in on just about the 'ground floor' with enormous potential going forward. I know they have been around for a bit but with their subscription service only recently established, we are (I hope) going to see some fantastic growth.
