madaboutshares: 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.'
pippin: Well, the share price is saying something....
johnroger: Is this what has been holding the share price back? RNS Number:8127S Comino Group PLC 03 December 2003 COMINO GROUP PLC Holding in Company The Company has today been notified in accordance with section 198 - 210 of the Companies Act 1985, as amended, that following a sale of 185,000 ordinary shares, Montanaro UK Smaller Companies Investment Trust Plc holds 798,500 ordinary shares representing 5.74 per cent. of the issue share capital. END This information is provided by RNS The company news service from the London Stock Exchange
johnroger: CMO price further marked down on Friday after the IC article. However Techinvest have been strong supporters of this company with two holdings in the "Trader" portfolio bought at 180 and 195, most recently on October 6th.The November issue maintains the buy rating ahead of the results. IC credibility rather damaged with outdated information on the Constellation stake!However they do admit the"company's undoubted growth potential" I have bought a small stake this afternoon at 209.5 and am looking forward to Techinvest comment on the results. 14 November 2003 COMINO (CMO) A small fall in sales has not stopped Comino from producing respectable profit growth over the past year. The decline in revenues was largely due to the software developer no longer providing managed services, and an expected fall in activity within its occupational pensions arm. Fortunately, the impact of this was offset by lower overhead costs. And business is now said to be picking up again within the group's pension division. There are also promising signs elsewhere in the group. Despite a dispute over a contract with one of its customers, the social housing division is making good progress overall. And more of this division's revenues are coming from support services, a recurring income stream. Following this robust showing, management is talking up the group's prospects. It claims that the order book is currently in a sound state. Comino's financial position is also comfortable. Despite a £1.9m cash outflow in the first half, it still has plenty of cash sitting on its balance sheet. Expect full-year, adjusted pre-tax profits of £2.3m, with EPS of 11.5p. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Ord price: 219p Market value: £30m Touch: 215-223p 12-month High: 258p Low: 128p Dividend yield: 2.8% PE ratio: 23 Net asset value: 65p* Net cash: £6.1m *Includes intangibles of £2.61m, or 19p a share -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Half-year Turnover Pre-tax Stated earnings Net div per to 30 Sep (£m) profit (£m) per share (p) share (p) -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2002 11.8 0.42 2.0 1.9 2003 11.3 0.60 2.6 2.2 % change -4 +43 +30 +16 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Last IC view: 6 Jun 2003, page 46Ex-div: 31 DecPayment: 29 Jan Comino's shares have outperformed of late and now stand on a forward PE ratio of 19. That reflects the company's undoubted growth potential and the chance of a takeover approach - Canadian rival Constellation Software holds a 17.2 per cent stake. For now, though, fairly priced.
gzr: Absolutely flying, not surprising after yesterdays news, that's really taken the lid of the share price. EPS was 8p last year, 11.2p forecast for next year and over 15p for 2005. That is some growth rate, hopefully we will see a rerating like Staffware have enjoyed.
beckaroo: You don't know the the directors rejected the offer - The indications from the RNS suggest the buyer wasn't going to pay over the odds when the share price rose to 180p after the RNS news. If they are still interested they are doing the right thing, wait for the interest to wear thin and then put in a bid. Maybe that is why Comino were so keen to put out an RNS about the Norwich PFI deal, to try and keep the price high so an offer will be high. AS they seem to have failed in this, I would expect either a good outlook in the results or this compnay will be taken over at a bargain price.
hiho: Does anyone know when Cominos end of year (ie end March 2002) figures will be published. These will undoubtedly affect the share price. If these are very detremental to the overall share value, does anyone else feel that the directors are held accountable if it is true that the acquisitive offer was north of £2 as suggested by Redd on 28th March 2002. Surely rejecting this offer was not in the overall interest of the shareholders.
redd: Would have to agree with the title. This is beginning to go up again after concerns about trading. Compared to most 'Techs' they are in an enviable position with NAV 65.3p and cash worth 58.8p per share = 124.1p (current share price 118.5p). They have said that they were profitable in the 2nd half but possibly not enough to cover 1st half losses. But at least they are now profit making and in a good business area (supplying Occupational Pensions, Social Housing and Local Governments). This has good potential to recover.
