schytalk I can why and how you do get excited and as I said before GHT are in the right space and have been. But for us shareholders its all about delivery. I think they are thereabouts, we just need this years results to be good and for them to provide a confident forward statement- then I am sure the share price will be rerated as you expect and the immediate past of the profits warning will be forgotten. This time next year [or in a few years] rodders.....!

dd Talking of V, IBM have championed the Four V's of Big Data, that being Volume, Velocity, Variety, Veracity. hxxp://www.ibmbigdatahub.com/infographic/four-vs-big-data So in my words:- Volume is scalability Velocity is the band width to handle peak loads Variety is complexity particularly if data is free format and lacks standards Varicity is how dependable/accurate the data is. The following extract from the Gresham Tech web site seems to indicate that CTC covers off all of the bases. "The high performance achieved during this most recent benchmark shows that CTC can be used in extremely high-volume, low-latency environments to give operational certainty to financial organisations and infrastructure providers conducting billions of transactions per hour in fast-moving markets"

inforprofit That is very interesting and a helpful update, not just for GHT though, seems the wider economy and payments are in pretty good shape. Below I list Finextra post of 10th October in relation to the C24 acquisition by GHT. Interesting comment as regards GHT now having the capability to handle 'fast data' which I presume is part of the Big Data challenge. The aquisition highlights and benefits section makes particularly compelling reading. As posted before, I firmly believe that GHT is significantly under valued and on further reflection I am increasingly baffled as to why the C24 acquisition did not act as a catalyst for a share breakout. .............. Gresham completes acquisition of C24 Technologies 10 October 2016 | 2006 views | 0 Source: Gresham Computing Gresham, the leading software and services company that specialises in providing real-time transaction control and enterprise data integrity software, has announced that it has completed the acquisition of C24 Technologies, a specialist in standards-based financial messaging and integration solutions. The acquisition of C24 is the first for Gresham since the launch of its Clareti platform in 2011 and has a compelling strategic vision, one that accelerates Gresham’s ambition to be the global leader in enterprise data integrity solutions within financial markets. C24’s experience in building real-time financial data management solutions and data compaction technology aligns with Gresham’s existing strengths, and supports the vision to meet the market need for a next generation solution for “fast data” management. In particular, the acquisition will help to accelerate the work that Gresham’s award-winning Clareti software platform is already doing in providing financial institutions with complete certainty in their data processing. Acquisition highlights and benefits: • The acquisition creates a world class team with an in-depth knowledge of the growing data challenge in financial services • The Acquisition brings with it proven technology to ingest, visualise and transform financial messaging data, and the ability to connect the Clareti platform to industry standard messaging networks • It will accelerate product development for innovative new solutions, including fast data • It doubles Gresham’s customer base in financial services markets in the UK, Europe, North America and Japan • The acquisition gives Gresham the ability to offer enhanced product functionality to joint customers - Clareti customers can process industry standard financial messages “off the shelf”, and C24 customers are able to rapidly adopt financial industry standards in their enterprise applications Ian Manocha, CEO, Gresham commented: “The acquisition of C24 marks another important milestone for Gresham in our growth, and further cements our position as a leader in enterprise data integrity. As a partner we have found in C24 a great visionary for big and fast data and the acquisition will accelerate our innovation agenda in that regard.” Steve Miller, Co-Founder, C4 Technologies added: “In Gresham we have found a committed and experienced partner to support our global customers and realise our future C24 Data Platform vision. Gresham’s Clareti platform is regarded as industry leading, and our technology and expertise will further strengthen its position and opportunity in the market.”

Thank you for that insight inforprofit. I wonder if GHT are behind any of these Barclays products as they have worked together before. We wont know if they are still working together as we dont get detailed info anymore. One thing I have seen in the share price in the past is that it can move significantly on very small volume, up or down. Volume V share price has never been its thing. The old banking systems was alway keeping GHT back, Basel III and regulatory requirement was supposed to give it a boost but not quit happend so any push is good news. GHT are and have been in the right space, a bit ahead of its time perhaps but hopefully they will realise their potential soon and then a bigger player will realise its worth.

Nice to see an up tick in the share price yesterday, happened on very thin volume, anyone with any ideas, not that I am complaining. I went to a Barclays SME seminar yesterday and it was very enlightening. It was of course a pitch for business and I (for my sins) have been a Barclays customer for many years. Apart from the usual stuff of how Barclays can help, commercial lending, international trade, card payments, combating cyber crime - there was a pitch on the post Brexit conditions, a market forecast, digital training and what turned out to be the star of the show Open API banking. Sorry for the jargon but apparently the PSD2 (which will enable such things as banking/loan price comparisons like we have for insurance, now it provides access to your personal banking data to a third party) is coming next year, together with the purely UK initiative of the Open Bank Working Group (OBWG) which has far higher ambitions as regards the sharing/use of bank data to support cloud based applications. Barclays offer a SmartBusiness service which enable you to see analytics about your account including information on direct competitors, I suspect this is a bit rudimentary at the moment and of course is limited to Barclays client information. The OBWG open API really comes into play when used with the location services of your mobile phone because this provides the exact location for an event/payment. For example, it will therefore be possible to produce a cloud application which can show spending in real time at a location such as a shopping centre/sports complex, instead of looking at footfall you will actually be able to see what is actually being spent, I am still trying to get my head around this. What was made clear is that it is simply not just a case of publishing an API, your data has to be up to date, accurate and appropriate for the current purpose. The problem is that we capture so much data, nearly all of which is unstructured, that finding the information to answer a specific query is troublesome. In other words we have Big Data and some serious challenges in the management there of. It seems to me that with the acquisition of C24 (payments messaging/connectivity) and GHT CTC technology - this whole thing could be huge for GHT, any thoughts anyone? I am in danger of getting very excited here. Just thought I would also share what Barclays say is the state of the economy, overall pretty good and with the outlook for 2017 set to be modest (sub 2%) growth. There are regional variances, currently the most buoyant economy is apparently the East Midlands (London is second) and the lowest is the South West, but all are in positive territory. They also said that in this region (South East) new account establishment was strong and that following Brexit no client had withdrawn/dropped planned investments/borrowing. I think that should give us all for encouragement.

Feeling smug. Trying to teach my teenage grandson somethinG about investing in shares. We selected three companies that we thought would bounce on their next announcement. One was SFR. We didn't buy but watched.Announcement came. Shares rose from 60p to 74p. Second was BBA. Watched as they rose from 246p to 266p. Finally GHT. THIS TIME WE DECIDED TO BUY as we didn't want to miss out if an announcement came before we expected. So we bought at 114p. Still no announcement but already they have started to rise!!

Well done, things may get better for GHT without need for RNS. I am not a techie at all but is that a batman coming into shape? See the share price in oct/nov on the above big chart. Apparently, and please do take this with alot of salt, if the right ear goes up above the left the share price keeps on going up further. And the opposite is true. I can hear the giggles as people read that!

Its ok guys its all good here. I am also looking at about 2-3 years or perhaps longer for a multibagger, have been here from 80p and did used to post under a different name thebullyboy. Had to open a new account long story. Like jadeticl3 I have also been adding recently but my trade is not showing yet, I bought 9k odd today. If forecasts are met this year then next years forward pe of 18 looks good.

double double It could well be that Gresham are being cautious especially given what happened a couple of years ago. I don't think it is wise for them to continue any form of 'real time' announcing since that would likely create too much volatility in the share price I think this revised information flow is a deliberate change of policy by GHT and confirms the stated strategy for building for the long-term. They want to build an annuity stream and become a significant dividend paying stock. The 'lull' created by this changed emphasis has result, in my view (but always DYOR), a falsely low share price In the long-term this is of little confidence, my only concern being that GHT could be an acquisition target since at the current price they would be a 'steal'! Perhaps the house brokers N1 Singer, could and should, have provided more support.

Thanks for the postings but I did read them, no actual trading update for q3. I am optimistic like others here but I think a company can become too cautious and that is where GHT is the moment. Ironic given that a realtime information company regards it shareholders in this way.

double double This might also help your thought process as regards information flow since I think it is there if you look but not geared around individual RNS announcements anymore. This summary was included in the Capital Markets Day presentation which Gresham did an RNS on to say that no new material information would be released. This summary slide for Q4 objectives seems to have some merit. Q4 2016 © 2016 Gresham Computing plc • Manage legacy revenues • Extend CTC usage in global customer base • Close additional Tier 1 “key customer” win(s) • Win further Clareti as Service sales • Break out in North America market • Build Clareti ARM pipeline in global transaction banks • Launch Clareti Loan Control • Prepare ground for Clareti Data Accelerator launch • Make a success of C24 integration • Look for further opportunity to scale on Gresham’s Group business platform in 2017

Made good reading when issued and still sounds good now. I Bought more after this was announced and am trying to restrain myself from buying yet more, but if the company was trying to not encourage unreasonable expectations this announcement either fails on that score or the prospects in the next year are very good. I choose to believe the latter!

double double Here is a re-post of the 'trading update' provided as part of the C24 acquisition. Hope it helps, I think a step change is on the way ....... Highlights of the Acquisition are set out below: Expected to be earnings enhancing in the first full year and represents the first acquisition for the Company as part of its strategy for Clareti-led growth. Doubles the Group’s customer base by adding a further 35 recurring annuity-based customers in the Company’s target financial services markets in the UK, Europe, North America and Japan. Acquires proven technology that will enable the Group’s flagship Clareti platform to connect to industry standard financial messaging networks thereby expanding the market opportunity for the Group’s Clareti products. Brings a development team with deep experience in real time data management solutions which will ensure continuity of support for C24 customers and adds capacity to accelerate the Group’s development and innovation roadmap. Acquires additional, as yet un-commercialised, intellectual property that complements the Group’s fast data management development activities.
