|russman: I have been around the track with Mr Martin a couple of times.
Same modus operandi every time, sometimes a bit sharp with small shareholders.
No complaints about their share price performances.|
It is evident that you had a better picture of how things stood here than I did;
the figures struck me as horrid and would have justified a sharp fall in the share price if it had not collapsed already.
I hope to receive a hard copy of the annual report before long and shall look, rather forlornly, for a few glimmers of encouragement.|
|billbyrne: With the end of March running into Easter this year it may be they will be later. But I would of thought they will be fairly soon.
What has been a concern though is the share price decline over the past 12
months. Would like to see some sign that e-signatures are being used in far larger numbers and so far that doesn't appear to be the case.|
My guess is that SNS may return to profit in 2013. If so, the profits would be of a more recurrent nature than those made in 2011.
If the price weakness over the last 12 months is getting you down, why not sell your shares and add the proceeds to holdings in companies that you are happier with ? Swearing at SNS will do nothing for the share price.
My average price paid is about 15p and so I am moderately happy with SNS but I would not want too many eggs in this basket.|
|varies: The figures for the first half of 2012 are very disappointing and amply justify the fall in the share price.
I must confess that I had not realised how much of the profits for the corresponding period last year was exceptional, arising from a big sale of perpetual rights.
I have only dealt once in the last year or so when I sold 10,000 shares at 29p which was the most that the market would take.
It now looks as if the development into sustainable profit-making on a more conservative basis may take another year or two but I feel confident that SNS will prove a big winner eventually. Yet another share for the back of my drawer !|
|billbyrne: I wonder what the share price will be when we are processing 3,000,000,000 e-signed documents. :-)
Silanis e-Sign Enterprise 4.6 Responds to Market Demand for Massive Scalability and Performance
Montreal, QC, June 28, 2012 - As legally enforceable electronic signatures become a foundational technology for the enterprise along with CRM, ECM and other content services and as e-signatures are scaled across all lines of business the market requires increased scalability and performance to support an exponentially growing volume of electronic customer transactions.
In response, Silanis, the leader in enterprise electronic signature solutions with the largest e-signature deployments, today released version 4.6 of its e-signature platform, e-Sign Enterprise. As the leading solution for enterprise e-signatures based on functionality and electronic evidence, e-Sign Enterprise is trusted with the core business processes of North America's top banks, insurance carriers and government agencies and handles more e-signed transactions annually than any other e-signature provider.
Considering that the insurance industry worldwide generates more than $4 trillion1 in revenue and that large carriers can process up to a billion paper documents each year, the anticipated volume of digital data generated from electronic transactions will be massive. Gartner predicts that as much as 75 percent of new business applications from independent agents in the US will be submitted electronically by 2016.2
With 25 million new savings, checking and credit card accounts opened and millions more consumer and mortgage loans closed each year, the US banking industry also generates enormous quantities of paperwork, and faces similar pressure to automate more processes and improve customer experience. According to Forrester Research, "Customers, who are more comfortable with the Web and mobile apps, are now driving e-signature adoption; it's no longer just enterprises looking to reduce paper costs. "
Creating the best and most competitive customer experience consistently across billions of annual transactions requires robust technology. Architected for scalability and performance, e-Sign Enterprise 4.6 is a significant new software release that enhances two major areas of the platform in order to serve up greater volumes of documents and carry out transactions even faster. These enhancements apply to:
The document processing architecture and integration API, resulting in significant document presentation and processing performance;
The data and document storage architecture, to increase scalability.
"Earlier this year we successfully load-tested a transaction volume exceeding 3,000,000,000 e-signed documents per year in an enterprise environment," said Alexei Savchenko, Silanis CTO. "While undergoing this scalability testing, we created the planning models and documentation to help enterprises with performance tuning, capacity planning and scalability analysis. As a result, our customers will process massive volumes of business transactions while maintaining sub-second response times."
These response times are all the more impressive considering that Silanis' enterprise e-signature platform is performing a multitude of actions as it executes each transaction. Even for a simple signing process, the platform is presenting the document online, allowing people to review and e-sign, capturing forms data, securing the document with a digital signature and delivering the completed document electronically.
While all of this occurs, hundreds of thousands of other transactions can be taking place simultaneously across various lines of business, departments and channels. Add to this the need to display multiple documents (where some could contain 30 pages or more) for multiple signers through a web browser or mobile device, and the demands on performance and scalability become substantial.
The increased performance and scalability is a key part of Silanis' strategy to support customers from a single e-signature platform, regardless of how it is deployed: on-premises, on a private cloud, through dedicated cloud services or a software-as-a-service. Having flexibility in deployment options means that no matter the size of the project or the requirements of the organization, if IT resources are limited there are still ways to get up and running quickly.
"As the e-SignLive multi-tenant customer base expands, they are looking for a highly scalable environment that can accommodate spikes in large-scale transaction volumes on-demand, while limiting costs to actual usage and minimizing IT resources," said Robert Al-Jaar, Silanis' Executive VP of Online e-Signature Services.|
|jamonit: Having money invested in a stable, growing company with a stable share price is one thing. Stone dead silence and zero trades for..what, months?....is another. I'd at least like to see some sort of reassurance from the Directors that this biz still exists!|
|billbyrne: Cougar99 & jamonit.
Share price dropping on small volume, looks like the usual 50% retrace
after a sharp rise. imho
Contacted the company asking a couple of questions. Had a reply from Matt
Lane. All I will say is if there is a trading update, it will come before the end of Jan, if not, final results will be before end march.
I am happy to hold. Just look at the quality of the companys they are signing
|billbyrne: Could today be the day that the share price starts to push ahead, a
very positive trading update.|
I agree with you that the level of trades is so low that the shares might well be delisted although, leaving recent exceptional transactions aside, this level has risen in the new year.
As I understand the position, Silanis Inc is a private company and the only way in for outsiders is through SNS. Presumably the object in setting up SNS was to raise money in London with the expectation of raising more later but the performance of the share price and the small value of normal transactions (say £50,000 worth so far in 2011) does not suggest that an offer of new shares in London would be very successful.
I would like to see the SNS holding in INC distributed amongst SNS shareholders. For practical reasons there would need to be a massive consolidation first, say 1000 into 1, to avoid the need for very small allotments.
I believe that the prospects for INC are excellent and only hope that SNS shareholdres will be allowed to remain on board.|
