14:39 Datatec's earnings likely to lure suitors. A recovery in information and communication technology (ICT) spend, particularly in the US where Datatec has a large presence, was most likely the reason the company expected a good first-half performance, industry analysts said yesterday. JSE-listed Datatec, which also trades on the London Stock Exchange, said it expected growth in revenue for the six months to August to be about $300 million (R2.1 billion) higher at $2.1bn from $1.8bn in the comparative period. It expected overall gross margins to remain stable. The results will be published on October 31. Underlying earnings a share for the period were expected to be around 15 US cents, compared with 11.5 US cents previously, Datatec said. The company said its board expected earnings a share and headline earnings a share to be between 8 and 9 US cents, compared with 4.9 US cents a year earlier. Its shares closed 0.3 percent up at R36.48 on the local bourse yesterday. The stock is up 39 percent for the year to date. In the US Datatec has performed in line with other information technology (IT) companies, notably Cisco, which is regarded as an indicator for sales performance. Datatec is likely to gain increased investor attention and possibly suitors. Its larger rival, Dimension Data, is the stock which investors regard as having the closest resemblance to Datatec in terms of its dual listings and global IT assets, and it is almost off the list of publicly traded companies. Datatec's market cap is around R6.8bn whereas Didata's sits at R22.7bn. In relative terms Datatec is worth approximately 30 percent of Didata, according to Jason Kombo, an analyst at Coronation Fund Managers. Abdul Davids, the head of research at Kagiso Asset Management, said: "What we find is that the remaining listed companies like Datatec benefit from a 'scarcity premium' as a result. Other companies like Business Connexion and even Gijima will also benefit." Kombo said smaller IT businesses such as Business Connexion and EOH were good businesses and "I guess the only alternative left to get some IT exposure from a South African perspective". Conclusion of the sale of Didata to Nippon Telegraph and Telephone is imminent and analysts believe it will only be a matter of time until Datatec follows suit. Warren Buys, a portfolio manager at Cadiz Asset Management, said Datatec's attraction would be its large presence in several geographies, which would be attractive to another large telecoms or ICT business. The company could be considered a takeover target, Davids said, pointing out that no major impediments existed in Datatec's structure.
TIDMDTC RNS Number : 5518T Datatec Limited 30 September 2010 ? 30 September 2010 Datatec Limited Interim earnings update Datatec Limited, ("Datatec" or the "Group", JSE and LSE: DTC), the international Information and Communications Technology (ICT) group, is currently finalising its results for the six months ended 31 August 2010 ("the Period"), which will be published on 13 October 2010. As a JSE Listed company, Datatec is required to publish trading statements if the financial results for a given period are more than 20% higher than the results for the previous corresponding period. As described in more detail below, underlying* earnings per share, earnings per share and headline earnings per share for the Period are expected to be more than 20% better than the previous corresponding period of six months ended 31 August 2009 (the "Comparative Period"). Group revenues for the Period are expected to be approximately $2.1 billion compared to approximately $1.8 billion in the Comparative Period, with overall gross margins remaining stable. Underlying earnings per share Underlying* earnings per share for the Period are expected to be between 15 and 16 US cents per share, compared to 11.5 US cents per share for the Comparative Period. Earnings and headline earnings per share Under IFRS, the Group recognises liabilities against equity for the potential obligation to buy out minority shareholders under the terms of put options held by them in subsidiaries. At each reporting date changes in the fair value of such liabilities are booked in the income statement. An increase in the fair value of these minority interest buy-out liabilities has resulted in an unrealised additional charge of $6.8 million for the Period, compared to a charge of $6.4 million in the Comparative Period. Underlying earnings per share are unaffected by this unrealised charge and there are no cash implications associated with this accounting treatment. As a result, the Board expects earnings per share and headline earnings per share to be between 8 and 9 US cents per share, compared to 4.9 US cents in the Comparative Period. Excluding the increase in the fair value of put option liabilities, earnings per share and headline earnings per share would have been between 12 and 13 US cents per share. Financial information The financial information on which this statement is based has not been reviewed and reported on by Datatec's auditors. *Underlying earnings per share excludes goodwill and intangibles impairment, amortisation of acquired intangible assets, profit or loss on sale of assets and businesses, fair value movements on acquisition related financial instruments and unrealised foreign exchange movements Enquiries: +--------------------------------------+---------------------+ | Datatec Limited ( | | +--------------------------------------+---------------------+ | Ivan Dittrich - Chief Financial | +27 (0) 11 233 1221 | | Officer | | +--------------------------------------+---------------------+ | Wilna de Villiers - Group Marketing | +27 (0) 11 233 1013 | | Manager | | +--------------------------------------+---------------------+ | | | +--------------------------------------+---------------------+ | Jefferies International Limited | | +--------------------------------------+---------------------+ | Chris Snoxall | +44 (0) 20 7029 | | | 8000 | +--------------------------------------+---------------------+ | | | +--------------------------------------+---------------------+ | College Hill | | +--------------------------------------+---------------------+ | Adrian Duffield/Rozi Morris (UK) | + 44 (0) 20 7457 | | | 2020 | +--------------------------------------+---------------------+ | Frederic Cornet (SA) | +27 (0) 11 447 3030 | +--------------------------------------+---------------------+ This information is provided by RNS The company news service from the London Stock Exchange END
14:33 Logicalis, a subsidiary of JSE- and Aim-listed information and communication technology group Datatec, has acquired unified communications (UC) solutions provider Touchbase Singapore from the Touchbase Group. The business would be integrated with Logicalis' Singapore operation. "This acquisition brings further UC and customer contact expertise to Logicalis, as well as growing its Asia Pacific presence and reinforcing the Cisco Asia relationship. Touchbase Singapore also has an extensive client base to which Logicalis can now provide a broader service offering," said Datatec CE Jens Montanana. Touchbase Singapore achieves annual revenues of about $8-million. On Friday, Datatec announced that it was also acquiring South African security product distributor, Biodata IT, which would be integrated into the group's South African networking, convergence, security and mobility distribution business, Westcon SA.
14:30 (RTTNews) - Datatec Ltd. (DTC.L: News ) said Friday it agreed to acquire Biodata IT SA (Pty) Ltd., a South African registered and privately owned niche security product distributor based in Johannesburg, for undisclosed terms. Datatec is a provider of information and communication technology services. Datatec noted that the acquisition will be integrated into its South African networking, convergence, security and mobility distribution business Westcon SA. The company is of the view that Biodata's strong vendor suite and established presence in the local market adds significantly to Westcon SA's existing security portfolio. According to Jens Montanana, Datatec's chief cxecutive, "The acquisition will allow Westcon SA to bolster its distribution of security solutions."
20:10 - International information and communications technology group Datatec has made a conditional offer to acquire 100% of Comztek Holdings (Pty) Ltd for R97m. The consideration will be settled partly by cash and partly by the issue of Datatec and/or subsidiary shares. Comztek is a South African-based distributor of networking, security and other hardware and software products that are highly complementary to the activities of the Westcon Distribution business of Datatec in South Africa. Datatec says Comztek also has operations in the rest of Africa that, when combined with Westcon's pan-African footprint, could lead to the creation of a strategically significant player across many African markets. Datatec says management and all shareholders except for Mustek Limited have indicated their support for the transaction. Mustek holds 41.84% of the share capital of Comztek. Datatec has extended the acceptance date for the offer to 30 September.
decent statement here and price reaction due to it. thought i would post on this thread because if nothing else - that is a decent pic of kylie.
"The Times" 26/08/07 - Rumour of the day Datatec, the AIM-listed distributor and reseller of IT and telecoms equipment, up 4½p at 302p, is to report interims in October. Its US rival, Tech Data, has just revealed surprisingly strong growth in sales thanks to its business in North America, an area in which Datatec has a strong presence. Dresdner Kleinwort has a price target of 328p.
Still in here kingfast. 46% gain since October 2006.
It looks like something has been disturbed, will start another thread if I feel so inclined. Good luck Alan.
Bloody hell ..... what are you lot doing here ??? This thread was nice and quiet .... now clear off !!! Oh i see ............. Datatec ......... i think you guys need to start another thread as this was set up years ago when DTC was the epic for Digital Classics.
Alan, results good but it looks like the customary retrace to perhaps 280 after a good run before the next spike, patience is all.
Good results. Should get some coverage in the press.
It usually does when I buy in kingfast. Why should you be any different? Seriously though, the chart looks good.
Alan - as good a reason as any, why bother with tiresome analysis. Level 2 looks OK. No problem with low volume if the bid is there (currently 47,000 at 2.87) It can't stop because I've bought in can it?
kingfast - Bought in 6 months ago, and up 36.72% now. Volume's usually low so the price can bounce around a bit, but the trend is good. Buying decision clinched by vanhalen's great pics.
Lovely pics Vanhalen!
Well I've noticed it, did on the recent sell off but in belatedly today at 2.89 instead of 2.63! Chart looks promising. This thread is a bit of a mess though.
