rivaldo: Nice tip for IDEA here: Http://www.aol.co.uk/money/2017/07/18/2-technology-stocks-for-ambitious-investors/ "Ideagen(LSE: IDEA), a leading supplier of Information Management software, revealed a surge in annual profits earlier today as it announced its full-year results for FY2017. The AIM-listed technology business reported another strong performance for the year to 30 April. It was its eighth consecutive year of sales and earnings growth, with total revenues coming in 24% higher at £27.1m, and adjusted pre-tax profits rising to £6.9m, from £5.7m just a year ago. Fourfold increase The Nottingham-based firm provides quality, safety, audit, performance and risk-management software and expertise and has operations in the UK, EU, US, and the Middle East. With an excellent portfolio of software products, it helps companies to improve operational efficiency, strengthen compliance, and anticipate and manage every detail of risk, helping to reduce costs and improve efficiency. With a market value of £166m the AIM-listed group may be considered small-fry when compared to software giants such as Sage Group, valued at £7.2bn, but it can still boast a customer base of over 3,000 organisations that use its products. These include many blue chip names such as BAE Systems, Emirates Airlines, Royal Dutch Shell and the European Central Bank, as well as 180 hospitals in the UK and US. Despite a fourfold increase in the share price over the last five years, the shares have never breached the £1 mark, but I think this is about to change. With City analysts forecasting a further 28% improvement in underlying earnings for the current year to April, investors should look past the premium P/E rating of 21 and see that this is a price well worth paying for rapid growth."

mr doughnut1: Looking forward to results tomorrow. I follow IDEA on Twitter where there is a short video with Paul Douglas the general manager of terex equipment ltd. The company has sales revenue of $330m and has recently introduced the Q pulse quality management system. Using IDEA's improved Q & S system saves them £10,000 per month. Companies IMO simply cannot afford to ignore these kind of savings. Conjecture only lifts the share price o certain amount. The market will react accordingly to tomorrow's hard figures.

rivaldo: Whilst the share price takes a breather, IDEA continue to grow: Http://www.nottinghampost.com/50-new-jobs-at-notts-firm-that-develops-software-for-heineken-nhs-and-emirates/story-30377240-detail/story.html Extracts: "50 new jobs at Notts firm that develops software for Heineken, NHS and Emirates By DanRobinson | Posted: June 07, 2017 Software developer Ideagen is to create 50 new jobs as it bids to achieve an eighth year of consecutive growth. The Nottinghamshire-based company, which provides information management programmes for clients such as the NHS and Heineken, will establish posts across its UK operations with diverse roles ranging from senior management to graduates and apprenticeships. About 25 of the jobs will be at the firm's head office at Ergo House, in Ruddington Fields Business Park.... .....David Hornsby, Ideagen CEO, added: "We are pleased to report on another successful year for the group, which included four new acquisitions and several key contracts across all of our strategic verticals. "For nearly a quarter of a century, we have provided software solutions to thousands of customers across the globe such as the NHS in the UK, Emirates, Heineken and Harvard University. "As we continue to expand the company, we are delighted to be able to bring both new investment and new opportunities across our operations in the United Kingdom. "These new roles will see a 12 percent growth in staff numbers – exceeding the current UK economy growth of around two percent – and will offer competitive wages and comprehensive benefits in line with our status as one of the fastest growing software companies in the world." Mr Kent added: "We already have some of the best quality, safety, risk, performance and audit software products on the market but having a skilled workforce behind each product is the lifeblood of the company. "That's why I am delighted that, in what arguably remains an uncertain period in the midst of Brexit and the current UK election, that Ideagen continues to be strong enough and successful enough to offer new and exciting jobs across the United Kingdom."

pj 1: FWIW Stockopedia has IDEA on a historic (April) 2016 p/e/ of x126 against normalised eps of 0.71p. I would note that IDEA's share price at April 2016 was 53p against 89p today. IMO the 2016 p/e is worthless as a comparator as there have been at least 3 eps upgrades following acquisitions and Broker reports since. Apples and Oranges?

rivaldo: Big £10m earnings-enhancing acquisition - and funded by a placing at 75p :o)) I suspect the share price will soon be back to 78p-80p. Based on the PBT figures for 2015, I suspect the 2016 figures see PleaseTech acquired on a historic P/E of only 9 or 10. By the time the CEO and CFO leave during the coming year to 30/4/18, and with other savings etc, the P/E will probably drop even further. Lots of recurring income, and high overseas income too, which should bring in currency benefits this year. The placing was also oversubscribed enough to allow the CEO and some directors to slot some options and shares, which I don't begrudge at all given their success over time. Excellent news all round.

pj 1: Here you go Rivaldo, I think a week is safe enough time to leave before posting to be fair to other subscribers. Ideagen (IDEA:AIM) Share price: 64.25p Market cap: £117m EPS Apr 2017: 3.2 PE Apr 2017: 20 Dividend Apr 2017: 0.2p Dividend yield: 0.3% Source: Shares, FinnCap Life sciences 3 There’s a net of rules, regulations and red tape tightening over many industries. Little UK software supplier Ideagen (IDEA:AIM) has a wide range of off-the-shelf specialised software tools smack bang in this, albeit unglamorous, sweet spot. The Midlands-based company concentrates on what it calls the governance, risk and compliance (GRC) space, providing information management solutions to highly regulated industries. Target markets include healthcare, complex manufacturing, banking/finance, defence and energy. Ideagen supplies an integrated system that combines information from multiple operational sources on top of the typical internal audit and compliance functions. This provides clients with a detailed overview of corporate risk, controls and consequence mitigation analysis. That’s an increasingly compelling sale once an organisation begins to grasp the significant financial and reputational damage potential of not having adequate systems in place. Cover IDEAGEN 221216 Loyal fans We’ve been fans of the company since it gravitated to AIM from the old Plus Markets in 2012, first flagging the investment opportunity at 16p in August that year. The company hasn’t put a foot wrong ever since; adding carefully vetted bolt-on acquisitions to its underlying progress. Three acquisitions have been made since summer 2016 alone, being Covalent, Logen and IPI Solutions. Full year results to 30 April 2016 revealed a 52% revenue jump to £21.9 million including respectable 10% organic growth. That led to a 57% leap in adjusted EBITDA (earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation) to £6.3 million and improved operating cash conversion metrics. Shareholders should feel rightly chuffed about a 96% client renewals hit rate and 100 new customers won during that year. Ideagen also won its biggest single contract ever, worth £4.9 million. We believe the scale of new business is also improving. Healthy and wealthy A trading update in November implies the business is still in excellent health. We’ll find out more when half year results are published in January. FinnCap forecasts pre-tax profit rising by 21% to £6.9m for the full year to April 2017 – and then advancing to £8.4m a year later. It is also worth noting that Ideagen could potentially benefit from Brexit as that will increase red tape. Companies will need to comply with existing EU and international standards as well as the potential for the implementation of UK standards. (SF)

rivaldo: IDEA have been featured in Shares Magazine as follows - personally I believe 100p will come quicker than 3-4 years given the likelihood of more and bigger acquisitions, as well as organic growth: "Bright Ideagen Compliance and risk is a software niche being successfully tapped Increasing industry compliance, accountability, audit trails and risk management, organisations around the world are being pushed to embrace an ever-tightening red tape net. Little UK software specialist Ideagen (IDEA:AIM) has a wide range of off-theshelf specialised software tools smack bang in this sweet spot, and successful execution of its buy-and-build strategy should see the shares hit 70p in the next six to 12 months. The Midlands-based company concentrates on what it calls the governance, risk and compliance (GRC) space, providing information management solutions to highly regulated industries, such as healthcare, complex manufacturing, banking/finance, defence and energy. Supplying an integrated system that combines information from multiple operational sources on top of the typical internal audit and compliance functions, this leads to a detailed overview for clients of corporate risk, controls and consequence mitigation, an increasingly compelling sale once an organisation’s bosses begin to grasp the significant financial and reputational damage risk of not having adequate systems in place. PROFITABLE NICHE It’s not a particularly glamorous market in the way that, say cyber security or fintech is right now. But it is allowing the company to carve itself a successful growth path in this complex and profitable niche, with carefully-vetted acquisitions adding extra value. Ideagen secured its first major purchase back in December 2012 (£18 million Gael) but its has added other smaller bolt-ons since, including the £3.6 million (net of cash) purchase of peer Covalent. It adds compliance-heavy verticals (local government, social housing) plus a deeper footprint in the existing NHS market, bolstering recurring revenue streams to about 55% of its total going forward. And a good value bit of business it looks. An estimated 85% of Covalent’s £2.2 million most recent annual revenue is recurring, implying a purchase price of just 1.9-times those repeat sales. EYE ON VALUE It’s a typical Ideagen sort of deal and underlines the management ethos that is delivering carefully managed, rather than blistering, growth. To illustrate the point, Ideagen’s most recent full year results, to 30 April 2016, show a 52% jump in revenues to £21.9 million for the year to 30 April, 10% of which was driven from the underlying business, or organic growth in other words. This led to a 57% leap in adjusted EBITDA (earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation) to £6.3 million and improved operating cash conversion metrics, an increasingly meaningful metric in the current minvestment climate. At a pre-tax profit level the figures shot up 58% to £5.7 million, although that’s after adjusting for various perceived one-offs, such as share based payments, amortisation of acquisition intangibles and a few other bits and bobs. Investors can feel rightly chuffed about a 96% client renewals hit rate and 100 new customers won, not to mention the biggest single contract in the company’s history secured, worth £4.9 million. A previous Play of the Week in the early days of the company’s switch from the old Plus market to AIM at 16p (2 Aug 2012), that investment call went on to rack up a near 30% gain in a year to 20.625p. As the chart shows, despite a few lumps and bumps along the way, share price progress has been pretty consistent ever since, the stock earning a typical high-teens to low 20s price to earnings (PE) multiple. Extrapolate a rough 20-times PE beyond this year into the 30 April 2018 fiscal period, investors can quite reasonably expect the shares to nudge 70p over the next six to 12 months, tallying with the 69p price target of analysts at FinnCap. But being a long-run growth opportunity, it is not out of the question for Ideagen stock to touch 100p on a three to four year view. Growth: MEDIUM Serving an expanding niche and is aligning its ambitions with the large opportunity without overstepping its resources. Risk: LOW A clear focus provides opportunity as well as raising barriers to entry for competitors. Quality: HIGH High visibility from recurring revenues and decent cash generation, risk to forecasts is typically on the upside."
