Brainjuicer Group (BJU)     

dreamcatcher - 18 Jan 2014 21:21




BrainJuicer is a marketing and brand consultancy, with market research solutions grounded in the principles of behavioural science. In 1999, John Kearon, the Chief Juicer, founded BrainJuicer and since then, we have been translating breakthroughs in psychology, behavioural economics and social sciences into Juicy research tools that better understand and predict human behaviour.

We have been growing steadily year on year, listed on the London Stock Exchange in 2006, and now operate in 11 countries, with approximately 140 employees. We tend to work with large (in many cases, global) brands, and although we are very much smaller than our competitors, we compete effectively with the mainstream marketing and research providers.

BrainJuicer Group PLC

("BrainJuicer" and the "Company")



Trading update



Innovative, international online market researcher BrainJuicer Group PLC (AIM: BJU) today releases the following update on trading during its financial year ended 31 December 2013. The Company will announce its final results on 21 March 2014.



Revenue for the year increased by 17% to over £24m, reflecting continued encouraging trading over the second half of the year. Our core UK and US businesses both performed well, and all of our operations, with the exception of Germany, delivered increased revenue. The results were bolstered by an excellent fourth quarter, historically a strong but unpredictable quarter, during which revenues were well ahead of those in the disappointing comparable 2012 period.



Administrative costs were well controlled through the year, increasing by around 7%. The return of strong revenue growth and lower cost growth resulted in profits bouncing back strongly after the decline last year. Pre-tax profit for the year will be approximately £3.5m compared to £1.5m in 2012 and £2.8m in 2011, substantially beating the current market expectation.



Cash generation during 2013 was particularly strong. Even after returning £1.5m to shareholders in October via a 12p per share special dividend, the Company ended the year with a cash balance of £6.2m, compared with £3.8m at the end of 2012. BrainJuicer has no debt.



During 2013 the Company made further operational and strategic progress - enhancing its reputation and credibility. As testimony to this, in a recent global survey of over 2,000 market research practitioners (the Greenbook Industry Trends survey), the Company was voted the most innovative market research firm for the third year in a row. BrainJuicer's approaches, centred on Behavioural Science, continue to gain endorsement within major international clients, and this bodes well for further long term growth.










Edison - Innovation continues
BrainJuicer has just launched a new marketing initiative for evaluating the
emotional impact of advertising – an important indicator of its potential impact – the
FeelMore50. This type of re-evaluation of a longstanding market research project
area from a novel angle has helped the group be voted the most innovative
company in its industry by its peers for the third year running.

From what you've posted, this does look good, DC. But.........

All those Director 'Sells' throughout 2011 and 2012 do look a bit off-putting. I'd be looking for one or more Directors to Buy before taking a position myself. If they can't do this, then why should anyone else?

And another thing......

The web site at your link hasn't been up-dated for its readers in yonks. Strange or wot?

But it does look to have broken out upwards. Hmmm?

Commenting on the Company's results, John Kearon, Founder and Chief Juicer of BrainJuicer, said:

"The year was testament to our fantastic staff's collective tenacity and temperament, as well as to the market moving meaningfully in our direction. For many years we have been the most vocal and profound advocate of applying Behavioural Science to improving the predictive power of market research. Now there seems to be a meaningful move to adopt this thinking. And, while the rest of the industry talks about the potential of Behavioural Sciences, we're already applying our award-winning suite of Juicy tools and models to help clients create famous marketing that impacts their bottom line.

We have made a promising start to 2014. As always, however, given our limited revenue visibility we cannot predict with any certainty how the year will unfold. What we do know is that the coming years will be exciting."

Brainjuicer hits new high after another special divi

By John Harrington

March 21 2014, 9:54am
Going forward, the company expects to maintain dividend growth broadly in line with earnings per share.


Shares in Brainjuicer (LON:BJU) hit an all-time high after the online market research agency announced plans to return £1.5mln to shareholders via a special dividend.

Shares rose more than 10% to 470p in early deals as the cash-rich company said it would pay another special dividend of 12.5p, following up on the 12.5p special dividend it paid in October 2013. The company is able to afford the one-off – or should that be two-off? – payment because it is sitting on a £6.1mln cash pile.

The special divi is on top of 33% increase to 2.25p in the final dividend in respect of the year to 31 December 2013.

The dividends will need to be approved by a vote at the company’s annual general meeting.

BrainJuicer Group PLC

("BrainJuicer" or "the Company")



AGM Statement



BrainJuicer, (AIM: BJU), the innovative, international online market research agency, announces that, at the Company's AGM to be held later today, the following trading update will be given by the Chairman.

So far this year, we have generated revenue growth in most of our main markets and with most of our major multinational clients. Sales of BrainJuicer's unique "Juicy" products have comprised almost 80% of our business so far this year, compared with 74% during 2013 as a whole.

Investment in support of anticipated continued long-term growth, and in particular the expansion of our client account management teams, is expected to give rise to a somewhat higher rate of cost growth from the second quarter of the year onwards.

The sharp rise in the BrainJuicer share price during 2013 and early 2014 will likely lead to a much higher share based payment charge in 2014 than would otherwise have been the case. We anticipate a total charge of around £1m for share based payments and related National Insurance payments. The comparable charge for 2013 was £0.3m.

The Company can be found at www.brainjuicer.com.

this is another of several dotcom-equivalents like WAND and BLUR that have recently rocketed on hype and then crashed like the proverbial sticks

dreamcatcher - 12 May 2014 17:08 - 17 of 47

As long as you are in early and the same out, has been good while it lasted. I note your point cynic,

cynic - 12 May 2014 17:08 - 18 of 47

ah, but did you know when to get out and actually do so?

dreamcatcher - 12 May 2014 17:11 - 19 of 47

Yes out a month ago . Do not get stung as with rrl anymore. Must confess not in a awful lot at the moment, with the markets as they are.

cynic - 12 May 2014 17:15 - 20 of 47

looks as though you sold out at the price it has now fallen back to :-)

dreamcatcher - 12 May 2014 17:21 - 21 of 47

No, Round about 532p the sp closed at a month ago.
