|Acquisition of Primacy Corporation for CAD5.6M (£3.4M)
A Toronto based company providing software to Trust & Fund Administration market.
Seems to be a good fit with high margins.
Primacy's revenue in the year ending 31 October 2016 was CAD2.0 million (GBP1.2 million) with profit before tax of CAD0.9 million (GBP0.6 million). The gross assets at 31 October 2016 were CAD1.2 million (GBP0.7 million) and it is anticipated that at completion there will be cash and net funds of approximately CAD0.2 million (GBP0.1 million). The acquisition of Primacy is anticipated to be earnings enhancing in the current financial year and is funded through Microgen's existing cash resources.|
|well there were 3 (if I recall correctly) 25k buys at c 2.35 so some serious investment occurring. I added a mere 1k on the back of it!|
|Thanks for clarifying janeann....bit of a shame though :p|
|with a bit of editing for clarity

|25 million buy at 15.45 and 32 seconds no counter trade on my screen . Funny though another big move up .. interesting times|
|it doesn't appear on the trade screen I was using - the one before the 2 x 25k is a mere 2k.
ps on the lse site it is clearly an error - with a counter trade to correct it.|
|Several lots of 25k but what about the trade before that 25 million !! That is a buy That's over 50 million quid !!|
|? several lots of 25k - someone is very keen on these.|
|Hello - 25m trade @ 235! Fat finger?|
|That did cross my mind Patrick. The sudden upsurge did seem a bit out of the blue!|
|Possible bid coming looking at the buying on this ?????????|
|Nice. Looking forward to finding out how the "excellent" 2nd half has boosted results.|
|Thanks janeann - I would also normally associate C with cancellation. These show as O type trades on the screen I'm looking at too (advfn) but there is a separate column headed up with C.
Given the price action since I'm less inclined to worry about what they mean but it was just out of interest.|
|So am I. It's my largest holding.|
|There is no C on the trades I have seen - most are O with a couple of LTs. But for info C = cancellation! based on http://www.londonstockexchange.com/prices-and-markets/prices-help/trade-type.htm
didn't expect this type of action from MCGN - very pleased tho.|
|Indeed DavR0s...don't suppose you know what the C column represents on the Trades screen? There is a C against each of the trades above ask.|
|Buys above ask this morning - like to think this is about to pop up|
|Thanks, CC. SDtandard Life did a 5 to 7 years ago and the share didn't move.
This share needs a broker's note.|
If you held the shares at the time of that conversion you are correct. So if you held 1000 shares divide them by 9 and multiply by 7 = 777 + 1000 x £0.27 = £270. If you had bought shares at the time (£1.20) the value has actually increased (at today's price)by about 72%, plus you would have received four dividends with a total value of £61.38.
If you have held the shares over a few years you will have enjoyed the usual dividends plus a number of special dividends listed below - so I don't think many of the shareholders consider they have lost out!

|The document referred above above by Coincall says "7 for 9 Share Capital Consolidation". Does this for every 9 shares I will hold 7. (Always lose out) and the 27p return will make up for it?|
|Thanks coincall.Time flys.
Aptitude is the key.You can't beat high margin recurring revenue.|
|March/April 2015 + return of 27p/share
|Had a couple of more adds since the update.Moving into Asia was a big plus for me.
Didn't we have a consolidation last year?So in reality the price is even higher now.|
|yes lovely volume going through - I've bought back in here after the recent update having stalled on buying at £1 in late 2015 :/|
