|Unfortunately I got a little impatient and had sold half. Like GHF, I figured they'd get bought out but whenever I hold a share purely on that basis, it invariably never happens! Oh well, still a nice profit. Well don STF management.|
|Well done to the new management and board to realise this result! This is real progress!|
smartFOCUS story I read today|
|Itinvestor and all other sucessful investors here, good luck for the future.
I added RGO last time you mentioned them, so very happy so far, many thanks.
My little tip is CLL, my largest holding by miles. Stunning company, yet ANOTHER acquisition today. They will not be around 55p for long.
Check them out, check out the forecasts, and target price......well worth a look imho.
EO. are also now holding a very large part of my portfolio.
Well done all.|
|My attitude is you earn an additional 4% waiting for the cash and in the meantime you never know.|
|>Santangello.Well done with your investment.Just sold my 100k for very nice profit and believe that rgo will multibag over the next 18 months.Good luck whereever you choose to reinvest.|
|Do not feel anyone else will come in for STF the Diectors seem very keen on the deal. Jeanesy, always a hard pill to swollow I have got the tee shirt.|
|Ditto what riv said, I had on watch list but never looked cheap enough. Great call by those who forecast the takeover.|
|Well done chaps. On a trading/P/E basis STF was always a bit too expensive for me. I was obviously too cautious! Nice one.|
|Well done all holders . I was in these for years hoping to one day make some money on these . I recently sold out , silly me !|
|The best thing to do in that case is hold on and see if we get a counterbid?|
|Woah happy monday morning
We have been taken over.
A profit is a profit on to the next.|
|Well we all know now why results were delayed.|
|Cheers SANTANGELLO I bought more last week. Don`t understand why new contract win effect the results when STF had expected to announce last week in March.|
|dealit....spoke with the company today. Results will be out within the next 2 weeks. Delay appears to be in getting the announcement and the open day logistically coordinated with all the new contract wins and tech upgrades.
I have added more (yet again).|
|e-mailed STF today, asked them why results were late still waiting an answer.|
|More business flowing their way...
|Usually STF post early on the RNS don`t feel it will be today. They said results would be last week in March makes me feel that something as changed to delay the announcement + Dartington holdings notified voting rights for approx 3.5m shares on 30/3/11 I feel they know something is happening at STF i.e "takeover" ??? IMHO.|
|Results tomorrow I presume since they said last week of March in TU...
Another recent bit of news off their website this week.

Cendris partners with smartFOCUS for deep campaign analysis and targeted marketing campaigns
smartFOCUS improves data selection speed and flexibility; increases business volume for Netherlands marketing services provider
Bristol, UK (March 2011) - smartFOCUS, a global provider of multi-channel marketing software, has been selected by Cendris to standardise its business practices with in-depth campaign analyses and targeted marketing campaigns. Used to power 80 percent of its client business, smartFOCUS' smartMARKETER software delivers actionable customer insight from Cendris' large volumes of campaign data.
Cendris is a leading marketing service provider that manages and analyses marketing campaigns for many of the biggest brands in the Netherlands and across the Benelux region. An important division of European mail operator TNT Post, Cendris is focused on designing, implementing and running unrivalled marketing processes that generate sales for business-to-consumer brands. A smaller, though integral, part of its business is focused on B2B sales generation.
With smartFOCUS onboard, Cendris's marketing consultants are able to use highly visual, intuitive techniques to conduct their own analysis, and provide more in-depth and dramatically faster insight into customer communications.
For businesses like ours that are constantly selecting, managing, processing and analysing huge volumes of data, there is no solution faster or more flexible than smartFOCUS", said Cendris director of business consultancy, Kees Groenewoud. "We use smartFOCUS in our work as much as possible because it dramatically speeds up our time to market, and our ambition is to standardise all business on smartFOCUS.
Curt Bloom, interim chief executive for smartFOCUS, said:
As the Netherlands' largest data list manager and broker, Cendris came to us looking to align with a partner that could not only handle large volumes of data, but turn its hundreds of thousands of database entries into data that could be used. Within in time that Cendris has been working with our software and the support of our team, it has seen both measurable and quantifiable results that speak to the true value of data management for in-depth insight into customer communications. Our partnership with Cendris is one that both value and believe further demonstrates our traction as a leading provider of best-in-class marketing software across the globe.
Based on the smartFOCUS smartSERVER server platform, smartMARKETER has transformed marketing performance for Cendris, delivering powerful data analysis results to address a wide range of specific marketing challenges. It's been easy to see the results: production costs have decreased significantly, the design process for new campaigns is much faster, we have new customer revenue streams for data testing, and our income for campaign design has increased significantly. smartFOCUS is a great company to partner with because it doesn't just talk in technology the team empathises with our business and works with us on level that is personal, rewarding and great for our business.|
|Pre results buys appearing.......encouraging.|
|Yet another contract in. Bring on the results next week.....|
