Quickflix halts trading ahead of acquisition

Comes as subscriber base drops 14 per cent in the last quarter

Competition in the streaming video-on-demand space could intensify further as Quickflix enters a trading halt pending an acquisition.

The release issued to investors cited a ‘potential corporate transaction’ behind the suspension in trading.

The directors of Quickflix request a voluntary suspension of trading….regarding a potential corporate transaction with an international party which may result in an acquisition.

The Perth-based company's share price was halted at 0.002.

The release does not reveal if Quickflix is expanding or if it is being acquired. The company, which has a market capitalisation of $2.3 million, has a cash reserve of $900,000.

Free trial periods offered by its rivals impacted Quickflix’s customer base. According to the quarterly update issued to shareholders, its subscriber base dropped 14 per cent to 121,127 in the quarter ending June 2015.

Quickflix is expected to reveal its announcement and resume trading by 5 August, 2015.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
