    Investment Idea Details
    The Company

    Agora (API) provides Real-Time Engagement Platform-as-a-Service (“RTE-PaaS”), which offers developers software tools to embed real-time video, voice and messaging capabilities into their applications without the need to create and maintain the underlying infrastructure themselves. Agora’s principal operation and geographic market is in the People’s Republic of China (“PRC”) and the United States.

    The demand for the product is primarily driven by the following types of use cases:
    Social, Education, Entertainment and Gaming, which includes one-to-one and group video and voice chat, remote classroom, live interactive streaming and video or voice interactions in multi-player games.
    Enterprise Solutions, which includes video conferencing and engagement-oriented workflows such as sales, customer support and consultation.

    Market Opportunity

    The market opportunity is large and growing. The real-time engagement powered by Agora platform today represents a fraction of the global opportunity for real-time engagement. In the month of March 2020, the company powered more than 40 billion minutes of real-time engagement for end users in more than 100 countries through more than 10,000 active applications.

    According to International Data Corporation, or IDC, the worldwide CPaaS market is forecasted to grow from US$3.3 billion in 2018 to US$17.2 billion in 2023, at a compound annual growth rate, or CAGR, of 39.3%.

    Risks

    Agora operates in an emerging and evolving market, which may develop more slowly or differently than market anticipates.

    The market in which Agora participates is competitive, and if it does not compete effectively, business, operating results and financial condition could be harmed.

    Agora financial results will fluctuate from period to period, and if it fails to meet securities analysts’ and investors’ expectations, then the trading price of shares and the value of your investment could decline substantially.

    Financials

    Agora (API) was founded in 2012 and booked $87 million in revenue for the 12 months ended March 31, 2020. The company is growing quickly with annual growth of 47%. It has raised a total of $125M in funding over 6 rounds.

    Agora plans to raise $300M by offering 44.5 million ADS at a price range of $16 to $18. At the higher end of the proposed range, API would command a fully diluted market value of $1.8 billion. Given strong financial results, high user retention rate along with prospective and fast-growing market, we estimate that API market cap after an IPO will be around $3B. The expected return on investment is significant (above 40%).

    How IPO Investments Work
    1. Collection of funds

    2-3 weeks before the start of the company publishes information about the opening of trading: financial statements for 3 years, a description of the company's business, plans for the future, as well as the risks that management sees in their own business. We analyze such offers and publish the best ones. Investors apply for deposits. Before the deadline for applications, you can change the request or cancel it.

    Threshold amount
    $50
    2. Buy shares

    We submit one large application for the purchase of shares by pre-subscription with reduced price to large investors. The application may be rejected in part or in full. Over the past three years, our applications have been rejected only three times. The next day, or every other day, we'll know at what price and at what percentage the order is executed, and we'll post it on «The my investment page».

    3. Start Bidding

    The price of shares is rising from the first day due to the demand of investors deprived of the opportunity to buy shares before trading. Most of the stocks we've been recommending buying over the past three years have been starting to trade on the stock exchange at tens of percent higher than the price at which customers bought the shares. There comes a Lock up period when it is forbidden to sell shares purchased by subscription. Typically lasts 3 months.

    4. Receiving profit

    After the expiration of the Lock Up period, the investment is automatically closed and the investor receives a profit on account of the deduction commissions UT. You can always view the results of your past investments in investment archive.

    Early profit fixation

    Although no shares are allowed to be sold during the lock-up period, our traders seek to offer investors fixed profit by way of using various financial instruments, including forwards, options, short positions etc.

    From the investor’s point of view this means that he or she may close an investment by paying a certain part of its value (as a rule, approximately 15 percent). This is due to high prices for the instruments which are employed to ensure availability of fixed profit. As such, you shall press any relevant button in the Investor Account as soon as it is active.

    The closing procedure is similar to commencement of investment business. You shall file a bid which is executed within a business day by UT. So, your investment is closed at the price currently prevailing on the stock exchange. However, we rarely recommend using this feature, since upon expiry of an applicable lock-up period the average performance is higher.

    Fee

    FOR ENTRY

    3 per cent of the share price. This fee is charged as soon as your investment bid is confirmed.

    FOR EXIT

    1.75 per cent of the purchase price paid for your shares as soon as trading is closed. This fee is charged upon closure of any relevant investment.

    SUCCESS

    20 per cent of the profit your derive. This fee is charged only if you show positive performance as of the moment any relevant investment is closed.

    TO EARLY EXIT

    Usually, 15 per cent (depends on the stock exchange environment). It is calculated per each investment individually.
