Harding and Company – IPO Market – 2nd Half of 2018 Preview

Top IPO’s for 2018

Harding and Company looks at what is in store for the remainder of the 2018 IPO Calendar, highlighting the major players looking to list by the end of the year.

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, July 18, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The first half of 2018’s IPO market saw several heavy hitters list. Most notably were Spotify, Dropbox and Xiaomi who were instrumental in seeing a 5% increase over 2017’s figures for the same period despite fewer companies coming to market.

Spotify the digital media company listed in New York back in April and has since seen its stock (NYSE: SPOT) gain over 25%.

Dropbox (NASDAQ: DBX), the cloud storage arm of Microsoft spiked 50% post listing, however, since that move the stock has settled at just over the $30 range showing gains of 10% to date.

Xiaomi, Spotify’s Chinese competitor, listed just a few weeks ago in Hong Kong (HKEX: 1810.HK) and has subsequently seen gains of +30% since its listing.

“Whilst the IPO market is always an exciting prospect, what we have seen so far this year is a more tentative approach” said John Preston, Senior Advisor at Harding and Company. “After 2016’s bumper year, we saw a significant withdrawal in large IPO’s through 2017. Now in 2018 that has reversed, and we are seeing significant increases in both interest and demand for the larger, more well-known IPO’s that have come to market so far this year.” Commenting on the second half of 2018’s IPO Calendar, John said “Given the caliber of companies still to list in the last half of the year, the IPO market and its performance as a whole for 2018 is looking to be exceptional, probably even record breaking!”

Key IPO’s still to come in 2018

China Tower

China Tower is the infrastructure-sharing joint venture between China Mobile, China Unicom, and China Telecom. The company was established in 2014 to prevent the duplication of towers by these three telecom firms.

China Tower has plans to raise up to US$10 billion through an IPO in 2018 and has appointed China International Capital Corp Ltd and Goldman Sachs to lead the IPO. The company’s shares will be listed in Hong Kong.

“With an expected valuation of $40 billion, this would make China Tower the largest mobile phone tower operator in the world with massive potential for expansion.”

Tencent Music Entertainment

Tencent Music – Chinese internet giant Tencent’s music streaming and downloading service – -has twice as many paying customers as Spotify. Tencent has a far better business model than Spotify and their revenue streams will be what sets them apart.

Media reports state that the company will list either in New York or in Hong Kong at a valuation of approximately US$10 billion.

John Preston commented, “Tencent Music has a dominant status in China. It would make sense to spin off the unit, allowing it to create strategic alliances and unlock value for investors. It could be one of the most-anticipated IPOs next year.”

Airbnb

The accommodations-rental platform has already raised U$4.5 billion from investors, and its current value is estimated at U$30 billion. Since its establishment in 2009, Airbnb has grown rapidly, and it currently operates in 65,000 cities across 191 countries.

According to a recent tweet by CEO Brian Chesky, the firm facilitated accommodation arrangements for over three million guests on New Year’s Eve last year.

While a 2018 IPO has not been confirmed, Chesky said that in March 2017, the firm was “halfway through a two-year project” to raise money from the public. But he added that he didn’t mean that there would be an IPO in 2018 – “it just means we’ll be ready.”

Aramco

Saudi Arabia’s oil company, Aramco, is likely to launch its IPO in 2018. It will be valued at US$2 trillion, giving it the highest market capitalisation of any company by far. The world’s biggest stock exchanges are competing for the listing.

The New York Stock Exchange has even received an endorsement from President Donald Trump, who has tweeted, “Would very much appreciate Saudi Arabia doing their IPO of Aramco with the New York Stock Exchange. Important to the United States!”

“The Saudi Aramco IPO is possibly the most highly anticipated listing of the decade, and will be a major feather in the cap of the stock exchange that secures it.” Quoted John Preston.

TRAVOD Recognised Among Largest Translation Companies in the World

Travod - Translation Agency

Travod – Translation Agency

Market research firm CSA recognises TRAVOD as a leader in the $46.52 billion global translation, localisation, and interpreting services industry.

We are thrilled to be recognised in the CSA Research. And, as the localisation landscape continues to evolve rapidly, we are here to explore new ways of contributing to the translation industry.”

— Elena Grigoras, CEO of TRAVOD International

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, July 18, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — TRAVOD International announced today that it officially ranks as one of the largest language service providers (LSPs) in the global translation and interpreting industry. Published in June 2018 by independent market research firm Common Sense Advisory (CSA Research), “The Language Services Market: 2018” ranked TRAVOD translation agency as a top-grossing LSP in the US$46.52 billion global market for outsourced language services and technology. TRAVOD International was named as the 93rd largest LSP in the world and the 22nd largest in Northern Europe.

With 70% annual growth last year, TRAVOD outperformed more than 18,000 other translation companies to achieve this honour. The company’s success is attributed to its expansion into new Scandinavian, Asian and Eastern European markets. A big role in TRAVOD’s growth was played by the diversification of the service portfolio offered to end clients, incorporating services such as Website Localisation, Software Localisation, Desktop Publishing and translation solutions. The customer-focused workforce at TRAVOD helped it get ahead of the other players in the industry.

As part of the primary quantitative study, CSA Research surveyed providers from around the world to collect actual reported revenue for 2016 and 2017, and expected revenue for 2018. The firm details the findings in the 14th annual global industry report, “The Language Services Market: 2018,” the only comprehensive global survey of private and publicly-traded language services and technology companies. The firm found that the demand for language services and supporting technologies is continuing and is growing at an annual rate of 7.99%, representing an increase of 6.97% on last year’s rate.

“We are thrilled to be recognised in the CSA Research. And, as the localisation landscape continues to evolve rapidly, we are here to explore new ways of contributing to the translation industry by focusing on digital solutions and localisation automation, which can and will transform the global economy.
For us, this is an honorable position and a significant boost in our global ranking, yet all we can feel is gratitude toward those who helped make this happen – all our partners. Thanks to their patronage and their firm belief in our capabilities, we managed to raise the quality of service offered to all our clients. Their loyalty helped us step up to the mark, perform better and keep pace with their needs," said Elena Grigoras, CEO of TRAVOD International.

Sixty-four percent of the language services providers (LSPs) surveyed said revenue was up over the previous year. Factors driving this demand include content digitisation, personalised customer service, and business globalisation. As organisations both large and small make their products and services available in more languages, the firm predicts that the language services industry will continue to grow and that the value of the market will rise to US$56.18 billion by 2021.

“As businesses optimise their customer experience in home markets through digitisation, companies are under pressure to globalise their entire operations. Our research has long and conclusively demonstrated that people are much more likely to purchase products in their own language. In addition, that same content and product localisation reduces customer care costs and increases brand loyalty,” explains Dr. Donald A. DePalma, CSA Research’s founder and Chief Strategy Officer.

TRAVOD, a full-service translation agency, has evolved and adapted so as to offer cutting-edge translation & localisation solutions to global companies and outsourcing solutions for LSPs. https://www.travod.com/

Australian Small Caps Increase Share Price by amazing 30% in 90 Days shows research

Specialist Small Caps PR, www.smallcapspr.com, has released findings from research undertaken on 50 Australian small caps over three months.

“Our analysis shows that companies that own what we define as a strong brand have consistently higher share prices and are less affected by stock market turbulence.” states principal Louise Elyse”

— Louise Elyse

CANBERRA, ACT, AUSTRALIA, July 18, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Small Caps are under-researched, under-invested, and under-valued. They are too small for the
large investment banks and fund managers to deploy their expensive resources.

Therefore, it is crucial that small cap companies are proactive in increasing their profile via marketing
and public relations. It is not enough to rely on investor relations.

Small cap companies must actively promote themselves to the investment community, potential shareholders and the general business community.

Specialist Small Caps PR, www.smallcapspr.com, has worked with many Australian
small caps and has released findings from research undertaken on 50 Australian small caps
over three months.

The research analysed 50 Australian small caps which were separated into three groups.

Group one undertook a media relations campaign where they were featured in high profile financial and
business publications in Australia and internationally.

Group two focused on social media including Linkedin, Facebook, Twitter and shares forums such as
Hot Copper and Share Café.

Group three didn’t undertake any marketing campaign.

The results were as anticipated with Group One which undertook a media campaign increasing their share price by an average of 25 per cent and a number of the group increased to 30 per cent.

Group two which utilised social media had an average increase in share price of 18 per cent during the campaign.

Group three which did not undertake any type of marketing campaign during the six months had little or no increase company share price.

Group one and two increased their profile and reputation, creating a strong brand.

“Our analysis shows that companies that own what we define as a strong brand have consistently higher share prices and are less affected by stock market turbulence.” states principal Louise Elyse

It has been demonstrated in research studies that a good corporate reputation, considered an intangible asset, brings considerable benefits to a small cap company.

According to Forbes Magazine intangible assets account for as much as 75% of a public
company’s market capitalisation.

Research indicates that positive perception of a company by the broader public can result in at least
four favorable outcomes: lower cost of capital, an ability to attract new investors, increased market capitalisation and stronger resistance to volatility.

Intermountain Healthcare Donates 6,000 Books to Utah Children

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH, USA, July 17, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Intermountain Healthcare is donating 6,000 books to at-risk children. The donation supports organizations in Utah dedicated to childhood literacy and development, including the Salt Lake County Health Department and the Reach Out and Read program.

“Community organizations will receive books, as will our pediatric clinics and newborn intensive care units, so we can encourage reading to children right from the beginning,” said Mikelle Moore, Intermountain senior vice president of Community Health.

Intermountain’s Community Giving program provided funding for nearly four thousand books, while Intermountain leaders from across the system contributed an additional 2,100 books. Donations included familiar titles such as The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Goodnight Moon, and Where the Wild Things Are. Nearly 30 percent of all donated titles were printed in languages other than English.

The Salt Lake County Health Department received books in support of their home visitation programs. “We provide approximately 4,500 visits per year,” said Kami Peterson, assistant division director of Family Health. “A lot of the families that we visit…in Salt Lake County are low-income families and don’t have access to books. Being able to give them a book and talk about literacy is really important.”

Caroline Moreno, education program manager with Salt Lake County Human Services, was optimistic about the impact the donation will have on the community. “Reading to a kid when they’re just born, when they’re five years old, when they’re 10 years old, is super important for brain development,” she said.

The research agrees with her. A 2016 study found that 3-year-olds whose parents read to them from an early age were significantly less likely to be aggressive or hyperactive. Follow up research determined the positive effects persisted as those children were entering kindergarten. Children whose families continued to read to them were less likely to have behavioral problems or experience trouble with concentration, key indicators of success in school.

Reach Out and Read, a nonprofit organization that incorporates books into pediatric care, will also receive supplies. The organization’s 34 Utah locations, roughly half of which operate out of Intermountain clinics, serve about 41,000 children annually.

Intermountain Healthcare is a Utah-based not-for-profit system of 22 hospitals, 170 clinics, a Medical Group with about 2,300 employed physicians and advanced practice clinicians, a health plans group called SelectHealth, and other medical services. Intermountain is widely recognized as a leader in transforming healthcare through high quality and sustainable costs. For more information about Intermountain, visit www.intermountainhealthcare.org.

Haven Life expands eligibility to cover non-U.S. citizens and complicated medical histories

The life insurance innovator seeks to increase eligibility with expanded underwriting guidelines that include noncitizens and those with chronic illnesses

NEW YORK, NY, USA, July 17, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Haven Life Insurance Agency (Haven Life) today announces that the Haven Term policy, issued by MassMutual, will now be available to, well, a whole lot more people. This expansion allows for both non-U.S. citizens and more individuals with chronic illnesses to be eligible for coverage.

More than 22 million people have legally immigrated to America to build a future and raise their families. And Haven Life is thrilled to be able to offer these individuals a streamlined option for securing affordable and dependable term life insurance coverage of up to $1 million.

In addition to noncitizens now being eligible for coverage, those with chronic illnesses or disorders are now more likely to qualify for a policy. This includes, but is not limited to, diabetes, anxiety, depression, sleep apnea, post-traumatic stress disorder and obesity.

Expanding the number of rate classes available enables Haven Life to provide offers to more applicants with complicated medical histories who may have been declined previously.

“Cases where chronic illnesses are present is a point of contention across the industry,” stated Mark Sayre, Head of Policy Design at Haven Life. “We’re in a unique position to innovate the underwriting process so that it’s not only easier to secure coverage but so that it also has fewer limitations on who qualifies.”

Impact of "IP Literacy" is the Focus of 2018 IP Awareness Summit at Columbia University

The Center for IP Understanding will hold IPAS 2018, a global event devoted to increasing IP understanding for all

IPAS 2018 will explore the role of patents and other IP rights in a in an information-driven world and look at ways to communicate IP’s vital link to innovation, commerce and society”

— Brian Hinman, Chief Innovation Officer, Aon IP Solutions

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, USA, July 17, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Center for Intellectual Property Understanding (CIPU) announced today that it is holding this year’s Intellectual Property Awareness Summit in New York on November 29 at Columbia University in the School of Journalism.

Confusion about the purpose and use of inventions, authored works and designs, and their rights, has led to widespread IP theft on the part of both individuals and businesses. Uncertainty inhibits innovation and competition, increases frustration and discourages investment. IPAS 2018 will examine ways to improve audiences’ basic IP awareness and appreciation.

The second annual Intellectual Property Awareness Summit – IP Literacy in a Digital World – will examine the impact of information and speed on how intellectual property is seen and often taken for granted, and ways to address it through education and the media.

IPAS 2017 (Enhancing Value Through Understanding), held at Illinois Institute of Technology/ Chicago-Kent College of Law, drew participants and panelists from the U.S., Europe and Asia, and provided opportunities to network and share ideas. Discussions included best ways to address the widespread confusion over IP rights, and the growing acceptance of IP theft.

Participants included Hon. Randall Rader, former Chief Judge of the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (ret.); Q. Todd Dickinson, ex-United Stated Under Secretary of Commerce, USPTO Director, Scott Frank, CEO of the IP Businesses at AT&T, Stephen Haber Director of Stamford’s IP² think tank and David Teece, UC Berkeley economist and IP advocate.

IPAS 2018 attendees will include IP holders, executives, educators, creators, service providers and IP organizations. Space is limited. To request an invitation, write explore@understandingip.org. Participants can expect interaction, networking and exploring the role of such groups as government, the media, and educators in making IP rights more intelligible, and the impact of failing to.

“Knowing what IP rights achieve is not just for lawyers,” said Bruce Berman, Chairman and founder of CIPU, an independent non-profit hosting IPAS 2018. “Patents and other IP are too important to ignore and not that difficult for most people to understand. IP is more easily accessible and easily infringed than ever, and many believe it is simply there for the taking.”

IP rights are central to more than 200 years of U.S. history. However, they have grown weaker and less certain over the past decade. Other nations are keenly aware. China, for example, has dramatically improved the reliability of its patent system and increased its investment in technology, which is threatening to dethrone the U.S. as the “go-to” nation for innovation and new ideas. A range of people and institutions that rely on IP need to know what is at stake and how to fix it.

“IPAS 2018 will explore the role of patents and other IP rights in a in an information-driven world,” said Brian Hinman, Chief Innovation Officer at Aon IP Solutions and a CIPU board member. “Everyone should be able to recognize and respect IP rights. This event will examine how to improve basic IP awareness and appreciation. IPAS speakers and panelists will look at ways to communicate IP’s vital link to innovation, commerce and society.”

About the Center for IP Understanding

The Center for Intellectual Property Understanding is an independent, non-profit organization dedicated to increasing awareness of IP rights and their impact on people’s lives. CIPU provides information, conducts research and facilitates activities that seek to make IP more intelligible, enhance value and deter theft. The Center also tracks attitudes toward IP rights, including patents, copyrights, and trademarks, and through outreach, provides an education framework for understanding how IP promotes competition and creates jobs.

Co-Diagnostics Announces Submission of CE Mark Registration for Tuberculosis Screening Test

Company’s Logix Smart™ MTB Test to be available for purchase with CE mark in August 2018

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, July 17, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Co-Diagnostics, Inc. (Nasdaq: CODX), a molecular diagnostics company with a unique, proprietary platform for the development of molecular diagnostic tests, announced today that its Logix Smart™ MTB Test technical file has been submitted for registration with the European Community, and that the CE marked in vitro diagnostic (“IVD”) is expected to be available for purchase early in August in markets that accept a CE mark as valid regulatory approval.

The technical file dossier and CE marking confirms that the test meets the Essential Requirements of the European Community’s In-Vitro Diagnostic Medical Device Directive (IVDD 98/79/EC). The registration process is expected to be complete by the end of July, at which point sales of the product may commence as an IVD with the CE marking included. The Logix Smart MTB Test detects DNA of mycobacteria tuberculosis (MTB) complex members and functions via real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) to detect and amplify the IS6110 and MPB64 regions of the MTB genome.

The newest iteration of their MTB screening test has been tailored to target detection of the two genes present in a broad range of tuberculosis infections, to greatly mitigate the potential of false negatives and improve the diagnosis and prognosis of patients afflicted with this disease worldwide. It is built on Co-Diagnostics’ proprietary CoPrimer™ design platform to virtually eliminate “primer-dimers,” the often-occurring phenomenon that leads to false positives in these types of diagnostics.

The key component to battling tuberculosis is an early, accurate, and affordable diagnosis. The Company believes that this will help them to better meet the global demand for detection of a disease with 99.9% of infections occurring outside of the United States, and that causes over 1.5 million deaths per year. Roughly 95% of these deaths occur in low and middle-income countries, which includes those in Eastern Europe in addition to many across Central America and the Caribbean basin. In the case of the latter, the Departments or Ministries of Health recognize clearance by the European Community as valid regulatory approval to allow sale of CE marked products throughout their jurisdictions.

ACH Payment Processing

Payment Gateway

Gulf Management Systems ACH Payment Processing is now available though Plug'N Pay's payment gateway, offering businesses a robust payment gateway & API.
