  • Good news for LOQ from Six Flags by gretel
    Thu, 24 Oct 2013 07:06:00 GMT

    The latest Q3 results and year to date numbers for Six Flags were out last night and are very good:

    link

    Extremely good news for LOQ - as noted elsewhere " the more season tickets sold means higher density attendance in the future as folks pay nothing for future visits then see how full the park is and go for the Qbot option as they have paid nothing to get in....".

    "The company continued to successfully upsell guests to season passes and membership plans, and as a result, deferred revenue grew to $76 million as of September 30, 2013, an increase of $17 million or 28 percent compared to September 30, 2012. "

    There's a transcript of the results conference call here:

    link

    Looks like more work will be coming LOQ's way:

    "In addition to a variety of other rides, slides and shows at other parks, we are also building a huge brand-new waterpark inside our Georgia theme park. That will be called Hurricane Harbor, and we believe it will be a big success." By gretel

    It has been a good season for theme parks in the US.
    Six Flags is very dynamic and Lo-Q has all their business,
    including accesso on ticket sales. Lo-Q ought to be

  • New Thorpe Park trial - looks like LOQ by gretel
    Sat, 24 Aug 2013 07:22:00 GMT

    A good find from posters elsewhere re the trialling of a mobile phone reservation solution at Thorpe Park.

    Merlin own Thorpe Park, so as LOQ's Q=Bot partner etc the odds are that this is LOQ.

    It was trialled on the 19th and 20th, and next on 23-25 August:

    hxxp://www.thorpepark.com/prices/reserve-and-ride.aspx

    hxxp://www.reservenride.com/

    The key reason that this is almost certainly LOQ, although it's not been RNS'd/announced yet, is this page:

    Sat, 10 Aug 2013 09:31:00 GMT

    Yes, accesso seems to be a great fit with Lo-Q's existing products.
    Six Flags, Lo-Q's biggest customer (I believe), uses both accesso and Lo-Q.

    Btw, Disney, which was never on Lo-Q's target list (since they seem to go for
    developing their own systems) has launched a product "MyMagic+" which
    seems to be offering their guests a way of pre-booking rides, although
    there's no mention of a phone app for this system:

    Does this prove that Lo-Q really have a winner here,
    that Disney, the big boys, are playing catch-up? By janebolacha
  • Canaccord have 680p target by gretel
    Thu, 08 Aug 2013 10:41:00 GMT

    Canaccord's Buy note here is from just last week, with a 680p target:

    http ://www.proactiveinvestors.co.uk/companies/news/59683/lo-q-has-premium-business-in-accesso-says-canaccord-59683.html

    "Lo-Q has premium business in accesso, says Canaccord
    By Giles Gwinnett August 02 2013, 12:06pm

    "Customers typically see over a 30% jump in volume after converting to accesso’s platform," says Canaccord analyst Bob Liao

    Accesso "significantly" enhances queuing specialist Lo-Q's (LON:LOQ) growth opportunities, says broker Canaccord, which repeats its 'buy' recommendation on the stock.

    Lo-Q bought US ticketing and e-commerce group accesso in 2012 and the group's interims results in June showed it was performing ahead of expectations, with ticket sales up 32% year-on-year and mobile ticket sales up 90%.

    "Customers typically see over a 30% jump in volume after converting to accesso’s platform," says Canaccord analyst Bob Liao.

    "accesso’s service has less downtime than that of its competitors. Its SaaS architecture is highly reliable. Only an indirect competitor offers SaaS as an option," he adds.

    The analyst adds that he sees an opportunity for accesso's impressive management culture to be leveraged across the group and to use its business model outside the USA.

    "In addition, accesso and Lo-Q’s overlapping businesses and customer bases mean accesso is now the channel for many of Lo-Q’s sales. Management is now focused on this opportunity to further enhance sales."

    The broker targets a price of 680p for the shares." By gretel
  • Re: 9% down ! by janebolacha
    Tue, 23 Jul 2013 16:28:00 GMT

    Yes, the spread is huge and the daily movements seem senseless and with never much volume to explain them. I was expecting a fall of some sort after Six Flags, Lo-Q's biggest customer in the US, posted poor Q2/13 figures:

    " Monday, July 22, 8:23 AM Shares of Six Flags (SIX) sink 4.83% premarket as the amusement park operator's Q2 results come up short of estimates. Not helping matters is a death reported Friday evening at the company's Arlington, Texas park. Comment! [Consumer, On the Move]
    Monday, July 22, 8:06 AM Six Flags (SIX): Q2 EPS of $0.47 misses by $0.05. Revenue of $363.7M misses by $6.3M. (PR) 1 Comment [Earnings, Breaking N" (from "seeking alpha").

    With the wide spread and low volumes, this is definitely one to hold and look at only from time to time. It's a great little company with a tremendous product but schizophrenic swings. By janebolacha

  • Midas share tip by share 123 maiden
    Tue, 09 Jul 2013 08:25:00 GMT

    Shares of Lo-Q, the designer of the queuing technology which allows a user to make full use of his time without having to keep his place - physically - waiting in a queue, have vaulted 50% higher in the last six months. That follows on an impressive run last year. For businesses, it provides an important new revenue generator for those running at or near capacity. The success of the technology is such that its broker - Canaccord - sees sales jumping to £42.4m next year from an estimated £38.7m this year. Nevertheless, on most valuation metrics the shares look more than a little pricey and are now changing hands at 30 times this year's earnings forecasts. Its Chief Executive Officer, however, is adamant that the best still lies ahead for the company, as the potential impact on both the top and bottom line from entry to new markets hasn't been factored into those numbers. More importantly, longer-term this is a play on the unfolding mobile phone revolution and the ability of Lo-Q's technology to bust queues of any description. Sit back and enjoy the ride says The Financial Mail on Sunday's Midas column.

  • LOQ by jange
    Wed, 03 Apr 2013 22:24:44 GMT

    Lo-Q is seeing continued momentum in the new business pipeline and has invested further in patent portfolio. H1 trading is in line with market expectations, although revenues are seasonally weighted to H2 and management is confident it can meet market expectations for the full year. Lo-Q is expanding coverage of its virtual queuing products, and broadening revenues geographically. We believe the accesso deal provides significant opportunities to develop additional revenue streams. Hence, while the stock trades on c 37x our maintained FY13 EPS, there continues to be excellent progress and plenty of avenues for upgrades. Lo-Q provides technology solutions to the leisure and attractions industry. Its solutions include payment, ticketing, queue line management and digital content.

    Extracts: "February 28, 2013 3:35 pm Tech companies line up to cut queueing By Maija Palmer End of the line: devices can queue for you at Legoland Why queue when your mobile device could do it for you? In theme parks, at least, waiting for hours in a long line in the hot sun could be a thing of the past. According to Tom Burnet, chief executive of Lo-Q, which provides queue-busting devices and software, the technology exists to create an amusement park where no one stands in line. Instead, users could be scheduled to flow smoothly between attractions by following prompts from a mobile device. “Conceptually, you could have 100 per cent of the people in the park not queueing – or queueing virtually,” Mr Burnet says. “But in practical terms it is a little more challenging – where do all those people go?” Most amusement parks do not have enough restaurants, kiosks, shops and public spaces to accommodate all their visitors if they are not standing in line for a ride. A newly built park would be different, and Mr Burnet says Lo-Q is in talks with one theme park operator that is pondering designing its next venue to be completely queueless. Lo-Q has rolled out a device called a Q-bot in more than 20 theme parks, including Legoland resorts in Europe and Six Flags in the US. It holds a virtual place in a queue for visitors while they do something else – or, if they pay extra – jump to the front without waiting. The UK-based company had sales of £29.1m in 2012, and double-digit rises in sales in the past three years. Disney, too, is developing its own flow-management technology, involving wirelessly connected wristbands that let visitors select a time-slot for popular rides without standing in line. “Anything that Disney does the rest of the industry will ponder,” says Mr Burnet. There is a financial incentive to getting people out of lines. Mr Burnet estimates that visitors spend about $6 an hour in a theme park – on food, drinks and souvenirs – when they are not on rides or in queues. Getting rid of queues looks set to spread beyond theme parks ....Lo-Q recently bought Accesso, a US-based electronic ticketing company, whose clients include zoos, concert halls, sports events and venues such as Seattle’s Space Needle. Lo-Q’s technology will work on mobile phones as well as its Q-Bots. And with faster, 4G smartphone connections under way, Mr Burnet believes there will be possibilities for scheduling users’ days, perhaps even down to bank appointments and visits to the dry cleaner..."

    Thu, 21 Feb 2013 22:14:07 GMT

    Leonard Sim, the founding director of Lo-Q, an AIM-listed technology solutions provider to the attractions and leisure industry, sold one million pounds-worth of shares in the group on Thursday. The transaction reduced Sim's stake by 200,000 shares, which he disposed of at 500p each. He now holds 11.32% of the issued share capital. Fellow board member Anthony Bone, a non-Executive Director of the firm, also made a sale, trading in 80,000 shares at an average price of 498.5p earning him a total of £398,800. The transactions came just over a week after the group revealed double digit growth in its preliminary results, as demand for its systems at entertainment theme parks and water parks soars. The group, which provides virtual queuing systems provider for theme parks, water parks and attractions, said pre-tax profit surged 16.7% to £3.2m for the period ended November 4th 2012, while revenue climbed 18.7% to £29.1m
