andre: encarter Observation - if you have never lost money on this stock then you have never owned it. The share price has been due to rocket since 2002. The race is over, the crowd have gone home, the lights are off and the stadium has been put to bed for the night. Yet MPS still sit at the starting line because they never heard the gun. IMHO Maybe the posters just know more than you do.

cliley454: MPS Price: 28p Market cap £1.8m Judging from the chart one would think that the chance of picking up a MPS bargain had passed, but with a little research the truth is revealed. In fact they completed a 1 for 20 share consolidation at the start of September, which means today's share price of just 26.5p equates to around 1.3p in old money. Along with the consolidation came a fund raising at 1.5p (30p) which raised around £1.8m cash. Prior to announcing the fund raising MPS looked down and out and with the threat of administration or delisting were priced accordingly at 3p (60p). Their problems also included litigation against MPS of EUR1.2m, which has recently been resolved. http://www.advfn.com/p.php?pid=nmona&cb=1253355215&article=39281725&symbol=L%5EMPS They now have the necessary funds to take the business through and out of the recession but the share price has more than halved since? Crazy! Lets look at the business. Firstly they are safe now from the receivers and delisting isn't an option with all of the newly issued stock. They have realigned strategy to focus more on the larger corporate market and licensing of their software to other hardware providers. This is a massive company with over 270 employees and an expected turnover of £20m this year. Last years results showed a profit of £1.5m and a return to anywhere near this would make these a 10 bagger. Here's the company website for further research. http://www.minorplanet.com Interestingly their nearest competitor, CYH is valued at over £10m. Short term price target: 90p 12 month target: £3.00p

red imp: And as expected the erosion of the share price continues post-refinancing with a further 10% fall today. With several share consolidations over the past few years, a £100K holding at the beginning of 2000 would now be worth . . . £165.

andre: bonio10000 - perhaps you should do a little more research. The information on the company since they had to put out accounts last shows some contract wins of indeterminate profit value with showy bigger numbers which 'might' look OK on paper. Then they gave the NED's more share options shortly after. Read the HISTORY of the company. If the same people are behind a company then there is a saying about leopards and spots. At some point I expect this to go private. And a high share price would not make for the cheapest MBO. Which would impact your chances of turning a profit - if it is the plan of course. Then again, perhaps they don't want to take it private and assume the debts. It is a nice little cash cow for a few people as it is. I just wouldn't be expecting a rocket ship anytime soon. IMHO. I have read the snippets AND looked at the history. DYOR.

andre: Lucky sold out his Cybit shares shortly after telling everyone that he would never let any go. You make your own bed when it comes to your reputation. TracyLied deramped CYH stating 8p as the target. Though massively slated and 'simplistic' in his posts..... he is closer than anyone to a price prediction right now. Sad but true. I don't see MPS share price ever crossing CYH's but hey, even fools are proven to be right occasionally - if for completely the wrong reasons! CYH has invested in growth for the future and purchased companies for very little cash. MPS have never recovered from early critical mismanagement years ago. I don't and wouldn't buy either in this market - but then, I currently hold nothing anyway, so make of my opinion what you will. I do work in an associated industry and know the market and products quite well because of it. There is nothing wrong with the market and buyers are still there for the right products to save them money and make then more efficient. Too many people listening to the daily news doesn't help public perception. Good luck to all who hold either or both.

lucky punter: David It is common knowledge that there was an approach end of last week and the rise in the share price has reflected that as there is now a way out for the failing management who have failed to grow this company that they state is a marketleader. Just which market that is not even they know. The share price has been steadily declining as it has become apparent that the management have not attracted any new customers in the UK and Eire but instead have been pestering existing customers to re sign extended contracts on very favourable terms to produce short term revenue. Any buyer will be aware that they will have to service these contracts for next to nothing as most of the profit would be in the premium payment. The management have gambled that new business would supplement future years but clearly the product is not selling and frankly is 2 to 3 years behind the marketleaders. I suspect the board would be very interested in any offer but clearly this one has been speculative and some way below the current cap. The reality is that this rise will probably mean that the deal can not go through on the intended share exchange basis due to the instability of the MPS price.

andre: A nice article copied by Roofer 2. However it has inaccuracies and paints a glowing picture of something the original author either doesn't understand or is happy to gloss over. MPS share price fell from something like the figures quoted to much less than 43p. Some of the posters here are shareholders so I am surprised that they didn't pick this up to correct a misleading article. The share price fell far into single figures before the consolidation which effectively made small shareholders stock almost worthless at the expense of the institutions. MPS are also in the vehicle tracking industry. To compare them with other 'quoted' companies paints a much misleading picture of the entire market. Customers generally don't care whether a company is listed or not. Search in Google for 'vehicle tracking' and you will see what I mean. The market is awash with companies who offer cheaper systems which are in direct competition when a customer looks for a system. Is he really ignoring Navman for instance? They have taken over so many old MPS contracts that you wonder if anyone is going to re-sign with MPS. If your unsatisfactory contract was up for renewal and the market was full of easily found, cheaper (and in all probability) more reliable systems, then would you not look elsewhere? Holding on to contracts that went wrong is going to be a major hurdle in the next few years - not the opportunity outlined above. A large utility company that I know of still has to pay for something like 360+ units at about £60 per unit per month because the lease is third party. Many MPS units do not work, they cannot get them fixed and their lawyers tell them that they cannot get out of the lease due to the small print. They tell me that the system doesn't work at all now. Do we really choose to believe that utilities don't talk to each other? They have 18 months left on the contract! Do you think they will re-sign or look elsewhere? Many of the unquoted companies have also been quietly taking market share for years. MPS have only survived at the expense of the small shareholder and share dilutions. Read the full history of the company and you will see that for small investors it has been a cycle of optimism dashed by reality for years. The biggest problem in the industry is reliability. Service calls are expensive. Unless they really solve this problem, overcome their horrible reputation and start to work efficiently, MPS will become a bit player in what was once solely their marketplace. 6 years ago the world was their oyster. The rest is history - and if you do not learn from that then what else do you learn by? Doubtless I will get slated for a contrarian view compared to the other posters here. Some will say the company is different now. That remains to be seen and is far from proven. Still better a reality check then optimism based on limited and biased info. I am not a shareholder of MPS, not a shorter and not even trading right now. I just know this market well through work contacts and have watched MPS for years.
