This corner of the market (ECK and similar e.g. UNG, NCC) seems very stable compared to the gyrations elsewhere. Those hoping for a sharp dip to get in cheaper have so far been disappointed.boadicea
Thanks, I had actually missed today's RNS re: contract wins. Probably because I would have expected such news to have produced a less 'muted' market response.mazarin
From Hotviews Eckoh’s announcement today of a number of international secure payment contracts highlights a couple of key features of today’s payments market. Firstly there is a real drive to find ways to increase security, particularly for the growing number of “Card Not Present” transactions over the Internet or the telephone. Secondly to be successful, any method needs to have scale and international reach. Eckoh is addressing both these objectives now that it is established as a serious contender in this area. The company continues to win contracts for its CallGuard solution for contact centre payments, bought as the company acquired the Veritape operation a couple of years ago. Eckoh’s sales operation in the US sales is making headway as is its partnership with West Corporation, a BPO and Communications service provider (see Eckoh – Progress out West). The sales team is obviously being successful elsewhere as today’s list of announcements includes customers in South Africa (airline operator), Morocco (consultancy) and Canada (public sector organisation). The company is also pushing the technology, with the first contract for its Haloh Audio Tokenisation secure payment system (with Sensée, an outsourcer using homeworkers), thus giving another layer of security and sophistication to the CallGuard system. Eckoh is certainly moving quickly to generate wide acceptance and momentum for its approach to this facet of secure payments, delivering revenue up 22% to £17m and EBITDA of £4.5m in the full year to end March. The top management may have been distracted by the recent unsuccessful attempt to buy Netcall, see here, but generally there appears much to applaud. We are meeting the company later this month to learn more about how this progress can be sustained.oregano
contract wins announced this morning perhaps?!oregano
Has the 'tide' finally turned at last in our favour, as the share price clicked up by 1.5p first thing?mazarin
interesting these are all direct contracts, ie not coming from West Corporation (i think) who they gave US exclusivity to. the international spread is also impressive, much greater growth potential.oregano
It seems that almost every trade recently has been at the bid price, suggesting sellers, however... the price (so far) stays put, this in turn suggests someone is happily taking on any stock offered at this level? Does anyone have any thoughts on that? Also, re "deals" I suspect that since it is August, every man and his dog have gone to the seaside and I would not expect any deal announcements until September at the earliest. Now, back to watching paint dry.......nickelmer
I agree, so say let's get some movement on new contract deals and move forward, both from here and abroad. Its currently like 'watching paint dry'. Perhaps there's a chance they could even still be trying to win over that reticent Netcall investor in order to resurrect the Netcall deal....its just possible?mazarin
The point is that eckoh has fantastic growth opportunities netcall is just going to stagnate with directors wishing that they could and should retire.poacher45
http://www.investorschronicle.co.uk/2015/07/01/shares/news-and-analysis/eckoh-rings-up-netcall-TdUMJ9acP4DQseMdG3JaBK/article.html Eckoh trading at 30x N1 singers latest EPS forecast is indeed pricey Apply that multiple to Netcall values them at 84p on forecast earnings of 2.8p and they have £10m in cash alsolbo
The Netcall debacle seems to have 'knocked the wind out' of ECK's sails recently and it has been drifting 'aimlessly' ever since. We're now in need of some Contract news to give it a nudge and its not like BoD to remain so quiet. I don't recall it 'flat lining' for such a long time and trust things are happening behind closed doors.mazarin
Been in about 14 years having bought at 17p watched it drop to 5p and now around 40p expect onwards and upwards from here.reallyrich
Yes unfortunately sold most of my holding at low levels.hybrasil
Lol you have been in this stock a long time if i remember correctly.reallyrich
Just read that now really rich. Apart from the stock market I never get taken anywhere!hybrasil
I stand corrected although you might want to rephrase your comments of being taken inside a lot hybrasil!! lolreallyrich
I am slightly disappointed to hear the deal will not go through, it did sound as if it would have been earnings enhancing. However, I will be happy to have a larger slice of the USA business since no new shares will now be issued. I hope that Eckoh's good organic growth can continuenickelmer
Mylands Absolutely. I too have often been taken inside. Indeed I believe that Netcall has been large on the radar now for years. So what happened clearly should have not. We now have to hope that they can move on the USA.hybrasil
reallyrich Don't agree that a discussion with the shareholder could not have taken place because they would have become an insider. That can be done after the person being made an insider declares they understand the restrictions that are then placed on them by the Exchange rules. It has happened to me on a couple of occasions in takeover situations. Companies want to make sure that they have the backing of major shareholders and I agree with Hybrasil, they should have spoken with the shareholder before going live with the announcement of talks. The Nomads should be taken to task for failing to realise this might happen. A lot of egg on people's faces!mylands
Not sure how to interpret this RNS other than more negative for Netcall than ECK.Either way an opportunity for the MMs to create a fuss! ECK business model still firmly on track and winning new business.nashwan123
Not really as that would of been inside information, as that shareholder is not a director. I would of expected a takeover at some stage of the enlarged Eck group once Netcall was bedded in and also a few of the American contracts start to be agreed. I expect netcall price to continue its previous fall. GLA 15 years and still holding!!reallyrich
It's not rocket science. Surely that discussion with a shareholder who could block the bid should have happened before the original announcementhybrasil
I still have all my shares with a view to a few more. these rns's make be wonder if there is a bid coming. eck is still cheap as chips for any of the big guys. Maybe a monster contract?greg the grinch
It sounds to me as though HMRC are in dire need of ECK's customer care solutions, judging by today's news: http://tinyurl.com/nwxvfj6mazarin
