Can anyone tell me when we are likely to receive the proceeds of our Comino shares? Would it be 14 days after the new closing date?

The Business had a positive write up last Sunday, pointing out new contract wins with Manchester council (first phase £2m), interim dividend up 20%, turnover 7% ahead and net cash £8.2m. House broker KBC Peel Hunt forecasts a rise in full year profits from £2.7m to £3.6m. Prospective pe 16. If Comino can achieve £4.2m for following year that falls to 13. The article states "would be an attractive acquisition for a software company with back office systems which wanted software for delivery ... Comino looks set to prosper over the coming years" RNS on Friday shows that Liontrust increased its stake to 10.25% http://www.thebusinessonline.com/StoriesAll.aspx?StoryID=D78DE92F-EA66-4AA1-AC79-5C24BD4925C0&SectionID=9A21BE85-0186-496A-9DFF-7C2F0883CFC3

Well I'm out. Got in at 220p in Feb. Got out at 277p today. With the divi payout earlier this year that makes a 25%-plus return in 9 months. I reckon there could be a bit more upside, but I felt the rise today was a good a time as any to take profits.

Pretax profit in the six months to Sept 30 came in at 1.4 mln stg, up from 849,000 while the turnover was 13.1 mln stg, up from 12.2. The interim dividend is three pence compared to 2.5 pence a year earlier while the earning per share is 6.8 pence.

Yeah, but not much movement. Probably because the cash flow doesn't appear to back up the profits.

Looking at the 4 Year chart, if this breaks through 270p could see £3 quite quickly.

Extracted from today's Guardian Online 'Comino bid talk There was a sharp rise in shares of IT services company Comino Group yesterday as traders scented a fresh bid for the business. Shares in the company, which provides IT solutions for local government, social housing and occupational pensions administration, rose 12.5p to 262.5p. Traders said the share price rise was due to comments made by the management of rival Anite Group, up 0.25p at 64.75p, during a series of recent post-results meetings. Anite, which is about six times larger than Comino, works across the IT services sector but has a significant unit dealing with the public sector. Anite's management have apparently been talking to investors and analysts about making deals to bolster the business, leading traders to speculate about a bid for Comino. Comino is no stranger to predators. Last November the company said that talks with a potential bidder had ended after two months of talking.'
