Read Panmure Gordon & Co's note on FIDESSA GROUP, out this morning, by visiting hxxps://www.research-tree.com/company/GB0007590234 "The key messages from Fidessa Q1 IMS reiterate the key themes from final results – consolidations and closures amongst the customer base but the delays in the regulatory backdrop have not created any new uncertainty (there is a golden correlation rule which says Any New Regulation In Capital Markets = spend more on IT). But Fidessa sees some opportunities (that Fixed Income market), the geographic picture is uniform and DSOs are in line with historic patterns. The new CFO ticks the right box. Whilst too rich for us on an earnings basis (PE 28.6, EV/EBITDA 11/8x) the share has ‘yield’ support (FCF 3.1%, Div 3.6%) and that will keep shareholders cheered ..."

Hi Welcome to ML PM What the Fidessa? PM Fidessa Group PLC (FDSA:LSE): Last: 2,330, down 112 (-4.59%), High: 2,421, Low: 2,329, Volume: 51.34k PM This is an affront PM Emoticon PM Outrageous market reaction PM Well, for the record PM Here’s what I have now been told on this, which I believe PM The PE firm looking at Fidessa is Advent International PM hxxps://www.adventinternational.com/ BE Which makes sense, as rumours go. PM And the bank working on a possible deal is Morgan Stanley PM No approach yet, I am told PM But there almost certainly will be one PM You are on your own from here PM Since this is RAW BE “Almost certainly”? Cripes. Steady on. PM Buyer (or seller) beware PM Emoticon BE Well, a reminder that we mentioned it here http://www.ft.com/…html#axzz44HuyKLux and http://www.ft.com/…html#axzz44HuyKLux … Albeit without Advent’s name attached …. BE And got nothing whatsoever in the way of a response. PM This has riled me PM I’m going to slap a bandit rating on it PM Emoticon BE That’s useful, ta. We could even argue we’ve double sourced this, but I suspect it’s only that we’ve both spoken to Emoticon-level bandits. PM Level 2 is v v good, btw — for newer readers PM Emoticon is a taxi driver in Glasgow PM Emoticon is the story oracle, currently on a beach somewhere BE But this is what we face now. M&A rumours face silence. Stonewall. Throw up the shutters. I might have a short rant about this in your weekend FT.

The market does seem to happy with this - about 10% since the results on the 17th. The usual low volume, of course, but maybe that £24 buy is sensible after all.

I think you'll find the shareholding in question "...decreased following connected persons ceasing to be connected persons..." by some 22,000 odd shares in June last year. http://uk.advfn.com/news/PRNUS/2013/article/57981826 So a forced disposal I would imagine ....

It does seem a respectable vote of confidence. However, I note that he held 87722 at 31/12/12 so must have sold some 20000 during the year at possibly lower prices than the £24 he has just paid. So, perhaps not a person to rely on to choose the best time to buy and sell? Anyway, it will help the market to be happy about the shares.

Huttonr I thought I was alone on here..! Fidessa is a super company which I have held for many years. It would seem it's traditional markets are starting to recover after being depressed these last few years and from what I can discern the fast-growing derivatives business looks quite exciting... as you suggest we may see some increases this year ..

Whitestone - thanks for your notes. It looks as if we may actually be getting some increases in revenue this year and, even with the comments about extra investment, some increase in profits.

http://www.ifamagazine.com/news/fidessa-full-year-results-flat-but-ceo-sees-signs-of-modest-growth-in-2014-293038 Fidessa full-year results flat but CEO sees signs of modest growth in 2014 DIGITAL February 17, 2014 - Pre-tax profits rise - Revenues flat - Jefferies recommends 'buy' Financial trading systems provider Fidessa said conditions in all its customer markets were improving slowly as it reported an increase in pre-tax profits to 43.1m pounds from 42m pounds for the year to December 31st. Chief Executive Chris Aspinwall said the better outlook 'is reflected in our current deal pipeline' but warned that the upturn had been 'somewhat uneven' with customers still unable to make investment decisions with confidence. Revenues continued to be hit by tough conditions in equity markets and were flat at £279m, up marginally from £278.6m in 2012. Fidessa finished the year with a slightly higher cash balance of £73m and no debt after dividend payments, against £72.1m in cash in 2012. The company is paying an unchanged annual dividend of 37 pence a share along with a special dividend of 45 pence a share. Broker Jefferies rated Fidessa shares a 'buy' and raised its price target to 2570 pence from 2450 pence citing 'exceptional' market positions to take advantage of improved growth rates. Aspinwall said tight spending controls by clients had led to lower consultancy revenues but added that sales of Fidessa's derivatives platform had made good progress during the year with revenue more than doubling and contracts had been won with two 'large' unnamed US banks and a 'significant' firm in derivatives trading. He added that as the global economy recovers from the 2008 financial crisis Fidessa should see growth in sales of derivative and service-based platforms to feed slowly into overall revenue improvements although 'our recurring revenue model has the effect that some of the impact from the attrition in 2013 will flow through into 2014′ with expected modest constant currency growth in 2014. Fidessa's finance director Andy Malpass also said he would retire in 2015
