|Massive 190K buy @13:50 time stamped at 13:51:34 just popped up
Monday should be very interesting|
|All guesswork jumbone so bear that in mind.|
That would equate to more that 9.3 p cash per share + the SaaS side of business including Artworktool
|Hard to value as we don't have segmented info on the two parts of the co but at just over 6 million m'cap we will be left with the SAAS side of things and i suspect 4 million cash.|
Where do you see this go ?
Short term & Med term?|
|Well done janeann, i'm in a similar position but sold a few incase this deal falls.|
|well amazing; have held these for over 2 years at a small loss; bought a few more this morning at.135p and then this. Not often my timing is that lucky!|
|How much will that sale be worth... Any thoughts?|
|Excellent news for once here!!|
|Interest sparked by a holding announcement??? Could this be the turning??|

|Interesting Patent invented by Martin Varley issued..
Issue of US Patent
Altitude Group plc (AIM: ALT), the provider of information and technology services, announces that on 11 August 2015 a US patent was issued to Trade Only Limited, a subsidiary of the Company (the "Patent"). The Patent covers a number of claims related to the creation and rendering of artwork on to images online with the output in the correct format for web publishing or as a print ready file. In addition, the Patent covers technology designed to assist suppliers with managing inventory requirements.
The core technology protected by the Patent is used currently in the Artworktool.com solution. This provides the capability for users to create an artwork canvas to the correct size with a single click, based on either attributes on the page or from user inputted dimensions using any browser.
With a comprehensive set of tools within the solution, users can quickly and easily create print-ready artwork for any purpose and to any size, size images, change fonts, add layers and text effects.
Designs can be output directly to a web page to assist online sellers of personalised products, exported to be used for a Facebook cover or Twitter image, added to Google Drive or DropBox, integrated into existing ERP workflows and shared amongst friends on social media networks.
In addition, through seamless integration with Fotolia, users can instantly search from 30 million stock images and add to the design with a single click, or connect Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts to use existing images and content in new artwork creations.
Richard Sowerby, Executive Chairman, commented: "The grant of the US patent is the culmination of three years of work and investment in this innovative solution allowing any website publisher to fully integrate HTML5 artwork creation ability into their site. With wide ranging applications for website and email marketing publishers, print, sign and personalised gift companies as well as all the students worldwide that need to create content, Artworktool brings design and artwork creation to everyone online."
Vicky Robinson, Group Managing Director, said: "Our team has created an excellent solution that answers a clear market need. Alongside the many B2B applications our users can be up and running with a free account by simply logging in with a Facebook or Google+ account and they will instantly have access to all of the tools needed to create artwork for home, business, school or college."
Invented by Martin Varley, the Patent was issued to Trade Only Limited on 11 August 2015 with Patent No.: US 9,104,298.|
|TD do you have some connection with the directors here and at JNY?|
|What else has changed here, after the board changes? Anyone else below board changed ...Am worried here that the old (now new) team just go back to allowing losses to continue and no top line growth .. Why is it different this time ?|
|Yes and a steady climb back up again, up 1p today...|
|Martin Varley ups his stake to over 28%....and a tick up again.|
|Vicky Robinson as Managing Director has taken the day-to-day management role from the Executive Chairman. In Vicky, we have an experienced and capable leader managing the business to deliver an improved performance and giving greater focus to the whole Group. Our previous structure had individual operational leaders running modest-sized businesses reporting to a part-time Executive Chairman.
We have also strengthened our Board with the appointment of Peter Hallett who brings a wealth of experience and an independent perspective to our Board and to the strategic planning.
Our new management structure enables the Group to remove inefficient and duplicated back office functions from across the businesses and geographies.
Centralising these and many of our support functions has enabled us to maintain our sales and customer facing capability. We have already brought a number of these operations together for the UK and US businesses and also merged our Technologo and Artwork Tool products into the US and UK sales operations.
The impact of these changes is still being fully realised, however our initial estimate indicates the removal of approximately of GBP1.2 million of annual costs from the Group. Approximately GBP1 million of these savings are salary related, representing a significant reduction in the context of our overall group personnel costs.
These changes have been achieved at a one-off cash cost of approximately GBP150,000, which has been funded from existing cash resources and we are confident that the Group is adequately funded.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank our dedicated team for their hard work and support through this period of change."
|Introducing 'Investables'. Pre-vetted alt investments from the top drawer. London based, but global.
Pls msg me for details. Thanks.|
|Yapp has done well at other companies and There's significant value in this company, so the key is that Varley does not destroy shareholder value, as he did previously as CEO. This will take shareholder pressure to make sure a repeat of the previous management failings are not repeated. There's been no detail on the rationale for the changes nor any comments from the nomad or broker - that's not good.|
|Clearly been a disagreement between Mr Yapp & Mr Varley here:
|Disappointing though that Martin is stepping down from the BOD. Patience is the key playful, everything is in place to swing these well into profit.|
