scburbs: Thanks Hosede, I am pleased to say that the share price seems to have responded promptly to my complaints that it wasn't moving in line with the current bloodbath (although a rather longer wait from my initial short position during which time the world has become a very different place!). A few directors getting itchy feet to realise some more value before it disappears or institutional shareholder also with itchy feet?
jollychappy: One of Datacash's largest US peers Cybersource is making an acquisition of a rival called at 38x 2008 earnings. If Datacash was put on the same valuation this would give a share price of 420p vs current price of 290p, another 40% upside. Company fundamentals at Datacash look extremely good (see earlier posting). BUY
scburbs: Those who have done well holding DATA might want to take a view as to whether to hold on results day (25th September). Perhaps a strategy of selling and repurchasing post results if there are no problems would be wise and would lock in the good profits you have made. I am short and expect that the interims may disappoint at the eps level. I may be wrong, but I just wouldn't want to hold this one long across results day. Current share price 265.5p Market cap £243m Historic eps/PE 8p/33 Prospective eps/PE (current year) 8.63p/31 Why is it a good short? 45m new shares were issued at 136.5p in May 2006 to acquire Proc Cyber for £61.3m. The current value of those shares is £119.5m. At the same time the number of options were doubled as this represented 50% of the share capital at the time at the vendor wanted the right to retain 50%. Wow, the share price has nearly doubled since. Was that a really good acquisition? Unfortunately not! "Proc Cyber is a provider of risk management, payment processing, payment out solutions and financial reconciliation services predominantly to the online gaming markets" Investec estimated that post the acquisition US gaming accounted for 30% of group sales and 40-45% of profits! As this is referring to the combined group the proportions in the acquired business would have been higher. The share price promptly plunged from 220p to around 130p in response to the Safe Port Act. This was the company's statement on this. However, the current share price is 21% higher than the pre-Safe Port price. This would represent a massive increase in sales and profits of the remaining businesses if the rating pre-Safe Port was correct. What do the directors make of all of this? This one is pretty clear! Immediately post the issue of the final results for last year (which were good as largely unaffected by Safe Port). 18 April David Bailey sold 100k at 247p 18 April Andrew Dark sold 10k at 247p 19 April Gavin Breeze sold 1.5m at 242p No acquisitions other than low priced option exercising. No substantial sales until shortly after AGM statement at the end of June which said: "The Group has seen good growth in both revenue and transaction volumes so far this year. Revenues lost from the fallout in the US are continuing to be replaced as our customers expand their operations in other countries." 6 July Ashley Head sold 1.2m at 240p. A strategically important sale as Ashley Head was the 50% shareholder, but by selling these shares he now holds less than 50%. The AGM statement is no doubt accurate, but possible paints a misleading picture as the acquired business was only included for a small part of the comparative period. This good growth is now being spread across twice as many shares (just how good is that growth?). The reference to continuing to replace also implies they may not be fully replaced yet! Next news is interims on 25 September. Turnover growth and profit growth should be superficially attractive as the acquisition wasn't in the comparatives (other than for a very short period). However, the massive share issue will hold up earnings progress. The main effect of Safe Port will be felt in H2 this year as the business performed spectacularly in H2 largely due to strength in US gaming. As indicated above the growth required to replace this business is substantial. A business that was worth £2.20 per share before losing 40-45% of profits less than 1 year ago is now worth £2.655 per share. The directors have made bullish comments interspersed with subtle references to the impact of the lost business whilst raising millions in share sales. To me the share price looks set to disappoint when reality start to kick in. Also the share price has held up well within recent turbulence so a very nice entry point for anyone wanting to short. DATA is a solid business with good prospects, however, IMO there is a need for the share price to adjust to reflect the reality of the impact of Safe Port.
scburbs: Taken advantage of the current strength to increase my short position. With 30-40% of the business having gone down the pan in the US and the share price at or around all time highs it is an accident waiting to happen.
scburbs: Rigrat, There was a reason the share price crashed last year (I don't mean crash bankrupt, I mean crash substantial fall). DATA has yet to report any results relating to periods after the US gaming law change. At the time, Investec estimated that US gaming accounted for 30% sales and 40-45% of profits. You need rather more than sound management for the business to be worth more than before the US law change. Contract news has been positive, but I think the full negative from the lost business is not currently reflected in the share price.
aerotus: Blimey! This share price doesn't know the meaning of down!
tellarian: If (Big If) there is ongoing institutional interest it could be a win win situation. There are still deals to be done like the recent Swedish Acquisition, and, payment processing as an industry seems to be less developed in Europe. The institutions can steadily buy in - it strenghtens the share price, allowing more acquisitions. A real Trojan horse.
pugg1ey: I thought if I sold some this would give the share price another boost :-)
frontiercapital: Datacash Stmnt re Share Price Movement RNS Number:8169J Datacash Group PLC 02 October 2006 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 02 October 2006 DataCash Group PLC US Congress passes Safe Port Act The Board of DataCash Group has noted the share price reaction to the passing by Congress of the Safe Port Act and makes the following comments: The Group currently receives approximately 30% of its revenues from US originated payments down from 45% in December 2005. For the avoidance of doubt, the Group does not and has not supported sports book betting transactions originating in the US. The Group strategy has been to reduce the dependence on US gaming and further evidence of this trend can be shown by the growth rates of the non-US gaming business as a percentage of DataCash's total growth pro rata over the past 12 months, currently running at 74% compared to the US gaming growth rate of approximately 26%. DataCash Group has a wide sector diversification in its business, for example in retail, travel and telecommunications and this is expected to continue to show good growth, and is already benefiting from the growing requirement for integrated international payment processing and comprehensive risk management services provided by the DataCash Group. It is impossible to quantify the impact of the Bill at this stage, but the company also believes that the effect may be to generate new and enhanced opportunities to the Group for its non-US payments processing and risk management activities as gaming operators diversify into other geographic and business areas.

britishbear: Indeed it could. Would make an excellent addition to their European drive. Should at least keep the DATA share price steady with gains coming from good performance and chip and pin hype.
