Good to see that 90k buy push the bid up. This could move quite quickly as interest builds in the valuation anomaly.

19 July 2010:- Michael Jackson, Executive Chairman of Access Intelligence Plc appears on CNBC's 'Strictly Money' segment to discuss the impact of the proposed coalition spending cuts on UK businesses. Driving cost efficiencies through aggregated purchasing software delivered via Software-as-a-Service negates the need for expensive upfront capex in order to drive long-term cost savings. Due North, a subsidiary of Access Intelligence Plc, delivers procurement software into the Public and Private Sectors. http://www.cnbc.com/id/15840232?video=1546961586&play=1

I agree Garey that although initially management have confirmed that they are looking at a couple of small acquisitions, I eventually think that the larger one they elude to, will be a reverse takeover. Additionally, within 12-18 months I think they will themselves will be a target. For the record, ACC are my largest holding

Thanks Garey seen the article already. Already added £1500 at 4.15p seemed to good to miss. Will add again if it drops. Is something happening on 28th can't find any details? Know about possible aquisitions. Have a lot of faith in Howard Sears for very good reasons and Micheal Jackson's track record is proven so all adds up to a good future. Jim

Added 25k at 4.15p. All buys so far. Also:- Access Intelligence potential 'not reflected' Date: Monday 19 Jul 2010 Acquisitive compliance software firm Access Intelligence (AI) has ramped up first half profit by 180% and remains "cautiously optimistic" despite impending public sector spending cuts. Coalition chancellor George Osborne's austerity Budget is widely expected to hit many providers of services to government departments as ministers cut costs by over a third in real terms. But former chairman and part-time finance director Jeremy Hamer is confident this won't damage prospects at AI. "There's no reason at this point to feel we're under pressure, but we also don't think we'll be able to avoid it," he told ShareCast Monday. "We'll have a full contribution from Cobent in the second half, which should generate a very exciting profit for the six months, so we can absorb relatively slow growth in the public sector." Profit before tax jumped to £470,000 in the six months to 31 May from £169,000 a year earlier on revenue up 63%, or 25% on a like for like basis, to £4.14m. Cobent, a business focused on training in FDA (Food and Drugs Administration) regulated markets, was bought in March for £5.2m. It has already chipped in with £289,000 of sales. Total monthly revenue hit £0.7m by the end of May, of which £435,000 was recurring, while monthly costs were around £0.6m. Analysts at Astaire predict full-year adjusted profit of £1.4m and £9.3m of revenue, rising to £1.9m and £11.3m in 2011. A new management team brought in almost two years ago and subsequent period of cost-cutting have revived AI's fortunes. It's moving from an upfront licence model to more cost efficient software-as-a-service (SaaS) on-demand functionality that's made available to clients over the internet. "Saas now represents 77% of revenue, up from 55% a year ago," says Hamer, whose clients include the Bank of England, Barclays, the police and the NHS. Although AI thinks its ability to supply the low-cost entry that hosted solutions provide should help shield it from the worst of government spending cuts, it's also keen to expand its private sector business. "We start the second half with quite an interesting private sector pipeline and hope that by November we'll be able to say we've opened some doors," Hamer says. More acquisitions are also on the cards. "There are a couple of smaller acquisitions that it's fair to say we're running the slide rule over, and one larger one that we're not, but that we're wondering whether we will," Hamer told me. Net cash had risen to £2.4m by the end of the half year. "In the last 12 months we've added £1.7m of cash and only made £1.1m of operating profit. So, the Saas financial model does have some very interesting cash generative statistics," thinks Hamer. "We should generate cash relatively easily and at least in line with operating profit longer term, which is very healthy." "The share price doesn't reflect our potential." :-D

With mid price at 4.25p these can be bought at 4.15p. Is this a significant bargin? Or going to be marked down again? MMs must have shares to shift so is this keeping share price down?

I have had a couple of interesting conversations regarding the acqisition possibilities for access post the analyst meetings on Monday. Suffice to say one is quite large and going for a song in the current economic climate with cross integration possibilities with existing group cos making it extremely value enhancing. Just what I heard, take it as you like. Also wondering how long it will be until Access reverse into a bigger player. All good and shares too cheap. Hoping they stay at 4.5p to buy until 28th of the month. :-D

Within 12 months this will be a £20m market company. It will continue to grow organically and through acquisitions. The question is whether one day ACC will be acquired. Exciting times ahead and Jackson remains a man to back. Expect to see Shares Magazine continue to cover the company in forthcoming editions.

Indeed, the group's operating profit before exceptional items exceeded those of the whole of the last financial year. While recurring revenue increased 65% from £ 1.4 million to £ 2.4 million and now represents 57% of total revenues; total monthly revenue had reached £ 0.7 million by the end of May of which recurring revenues represented £ 0.435 million while monthly costs were around £ 0.6 million. The results include initial 3-months from Cobent, which has strengthened the group's existing compliance and training solutions to the public sector while opening UK and global cross-selling opportunities within the highly regulated and compliant private sector including pharmaceuticals, financial services and retail. Access Intelligence also sold Wired-Gov to its management during May 2010 and its results have been eliminated from the reported results and the previous year's results have been restated to provide a clearer picture of underlying progress. Turnover increased 63.7% from £ 2.543 million to £ 4.137 million, of which Cobent contributed £ 0.289 million. The growing proportion of recurring revenues helped restrain the growth in cost of sales to 21.9% or £ 1.596 million (2009: £ 1.309 million) and enabled the gross profit margin to expand 12.9 percentage points to 61.4%, which lifted the gross profit from £ 1.234 million to £ 2.541 million. Administrative expenses increased 76.2% from £ 1.065 million to £ 1.876 million due in large part to the integration of Cobent together with further group-wide investment in the private sector sales and marketing teams. Operating profit before exceptional costs (2010 Cobent acquisition cost of £ 0.120 million) increased 4-fold from £ 0.169 million to £ 0.668. Reported pretax profit increased from £ 0.170 million to £ 0.470 million despite net finance costs jumping to £ 0.78 million (2009 net finance income of £ 1,000). Basic earning per share increased from 0.12p to 0.22p despite the tax charge expanding from 8.8% or £ 0.15 million to £ 25.3% ( £ 0.119 million).

Despite the expectation that the public sector purse will shrink substantially over the coming months, Access Intelligence, like most public sector exposed businesses that demonstrably provide low cost solutions that enhance service efficiency, views the future with cautious optimism. The company's optimism stems from the successful organic and acquisitional development of its compliance/SaaS activities that have grown over the last 12-months from 55% of total revenues to 77%; last February's Cobent acquisition increasing private sector exposure and international opportunities. We have reviewed our earlier expectations and are edging back our sales expectations for 2010 from £ 9.6 million to £ 9.1 million and 2011 from £ 11.7 million to £ 10.7 million but maintaining our pretax profit and earnings per share forecasts. We continue to value Access Intelligence using an Enterprise Value/EBITDA ('EV/EBITDA') methodology and with the shares trading at 4.25p, the financial year 2009 multiple would be 10.12 times. Therefore, if the shares were to trade on a similar EV/EBITDA multiple based on our maintained 2011 forecasts, the shares should be 8.7p; consequently, we continue to recommend the shares as a buy.

I disagree and so do Hoodless Brennan who have just published a buy note:- 19/07/2010Access Intelligence (ACC, 4.25p, £10.83m) Access Intelligence (ACC, 4.25p, £10.83m) The provider of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions for areas in compliance, procurement, media relations and PR, reports interims to 31 May 2010 are line with FY estimates. Following the acquisitions of Ether-Ray (July 2009) and Cobent (March 2010), revenues have increased by 63% to £4.1m (H109: £2.5m), adjusted pre-tax profit by 2.5x to £0.59m (H109: £0.17m) and EPS by 83% to 0.22p (H109: 0.12p). Net cash of £2.4m provides the group with sufficient cash to make further small and earnings enhancing acquisitions. The group's strategy is to focus on the SaaS business model enhancing recurring revenues, which now represents 57% of group revenue. The outlook statement is cautiously optimistic. Access Intelligence will focus on the cost saving opportunities offered by their software and the low-cost entry that hosted solutions provide will both contribute to future growth and will, to some extent, shield the Group from spending cuts. Access Intelligence has strong cash generation and high revenue visibility combined with exposure to a relatively defensive market. The strong management team will continue to grow the business organically and via earnings enhancing acquisitions. We regard 11.5x 2010 PER falling to 9.7x in 2011 an attractive investment opportunity. We reiterate our BUY with a 12 month target price of 8.25p. Recommendation: BUY

I thought the last chief exec left because he paid too much for MS2M? a heart attack doesn't mean the company suddenly makes a 5million loss. I may sound heartless (no pun intended) and I have been through a heart attack myself but business is business. MJ is the real deal for me. I agree a new hands on chief exec would be good as I think the remaining businesses all fit together. 2million forecast for next year so feel 8p is warranted. Regards. :-D For the record not an employee or former employee, just a shrewd investor who has done a lot of research over the years.
