bamboo2: doubleor, the share price needs to close above the all time high [actually 1483 on 1 Sept] to confirm the new target price as valid. I am guessing that the figures we get on 19 Sept could help get the share price above this level.

grabster: After such a sharp rise, end-of-week profit-taking was likely to knock the share price down a bit today - and will still be a factor. So if the price does slip, it won't necessarily indicate a negative view of this deal, which looks a very positive one that would have pumped the share price higher if it hadn't already leapt. Or maybe some of this recent rise is due to leaks regarding this deal?

rivaldo: Nice... Https://www.ft.com/content/e07d9fac-5d96-11e7-9bc8-8055f264aa8b "Small-cap focus: IT service groups haul businesses into digital age Groups such as Keywords Studios.........have benefited from rapid growth Keywords Studios is not a typical IT services company but works for the video gaming industry to develop more technologically advanced games. This means it acts like an outsourced producer for augmented and virtual reality, testing and providing support once games go live. The Dublin-based company is listed in London and has attracted 21 of the largest 25 video game publishers as clients, including Electronic Arts, Activision Blizzard, Tencent, Konami, Sony and Ubisoft. It has also worked with Oculus and Google. Its more than 1,500 employees translate stories into different languages and make sure they are culturally adapted for players around the world. The company’s share price has almost doubled from the 2013 float price, to £2.67. The group last year bought Mindwalk for $5.5m, giving it access to the rapidly growing Chinese market. “Keywords’ DNA is in reducing complexity for publishers, demand for which is likely to increase further as augmented reality and artificial reality is developed” said Neil Campling, global head of technology, media and telecommunications research at Northern Trust Capital Markets. Pre-tax profits rose 85 per cent to €9.4m in the year to December 31 2016."

alphabeta4: Shanklin just on that point the sales look to be driven by Giorgio - last time he sold 4m, this time just under 4m, Andrew last time sold 1.5m, this time only 500k (despite the trebling of the share price since the last 240p sale). This feels like a Leonard Sim situation at ACSO, there the founder was gradually selling down over the years and taking more and more of a back seat. The more I look into this the more comfortable I am with it, it's just a shame I didn't work it out 15 minutes earlier - I think there was an easy trade there at 820p!

alphabeta4: Cheers Rivaldo, I was about to look for the previous sales, you saved me a job! I notice on the FT this morning Nintendo's share price has surpassed it's 2008 peak on strong Switch sales. Obviously link below is via a paywall but I liked this paragraph (if also finding it slightly amusing!): In the months since, Nintendo’s share price has been recovering as hype around its home and handheld hybrid game console, the Switch, picked up. The console is sold out nearly everywhere since its release in mid-March, and in Japan, Nintendo has even taken to selling just the cardboard box (yes, that’s right, the box) from the popular Splatoon 2 game and console bundle. https://www.ft.com/content/0a348e58-7bd6-3371-8999-f34bc611f212

clanger66: However this placing comes virtually a year after the placement done in 2016 which carried a years lock up. The lock up on this new deal is only 180 days so will we see another placing at the latter part of this year!Call me cynical but to suggest the deal was done to broaden the shareholder register seems a bit lame.I get the point that Andrew Day only sold a small portion of his holding but I wonder if even he feels the run in the share price has been a little too excessive.I guess the 820 deal price will be supported for a while but one to watch closely I think.

rivaldo: Results are already known to be terrific and should be out in the next 2-3 weeks (5th April last year). In which context the share price will hopefully bounce back quickly as it always has in the past.

robow: from Citywire Keywords bull run entices Hargreave Citywire AA-rated small cap selector Giles Hargreave has upped his stake in computer game translator Keywords Studios (KWS) as its shares dip from year-long bull-run which took it to a record high. Hargreave increased his holding to just over 5% of the business worth £16.2 million at a share price of 599p, just off an all-time peak of 613p hit last week. The majority of the shares are held by his private clients, with the remainder owned in funds run by his broker and asset manager Hargreave Hale for Marlborough Fund Managers. Keywords offers translation, voice-overs and cultural guidance to computer game developers selling their games into overseas markets, providing services to 21 of the top 25 sector businesses. Keywords is up 159% over the last 12 months. Analyst Berenberg initiated coverage on the company at the start of this money with a ‘buy’ rating and a 760p price target. The shares shed 5.5p on Friday to close the week at 599.5p.

rivaldo: Interesting - from Northland Securities via their monthly AIM Journal for December out yesterday: "Keywords joins FTSE AIM 50 Electronic games development services provider Keywords Studios, gold miner Solgold and gems miner Gemfields will all join the FTSE AIM 50 index later this month, while wine retailer Majestic Wine, Pantheon Resources and IT managed services provider Redcentric have fallen out of the index. Keywords floated in 2013 and it has used its quotation to be a consolidator in the market for art, localisation and audio services for gaming developers. Keywords has used shares to help pay for its acquisitions and the share price has still more than trebled as the company consistently beats forecasts."
