Hands holding sign saying 'Bravo!'

The Bailador Technology Investments Ltd (ASX: BTI) share price shot up this morning, climbing 12.38% to $1.18 before falling back to $1.12 at the time of writing. This came after the company released an update about its investment in Straker Translations Ltd (ASX: STG).

What did Bailador announce?

Bailador updated the market on the flow-on effect of Straker’s agreement yesterday to become a strategic translations service provider for global tech giant IBM (NYSE: IBM). The deal with IBM resulted in a significant increase in the Straker share price.

According to Bailador, the value of its investment in Straker has increased in value by 61% since its last valuation on 31 October 2020. This has boosted Bailador’s net tangible assets (NTA) by 3.2% compared to its report on 10 November 2020. At that time, Bailador had a pre-tax NTA of $1.37.

The Straker share price has increased slightly today, trading up 0.63% at $1.60, which may have a further positive effect on Bailador’s NTA.
