I agree rimau, the chances are that this is a good entry point. However, quantifying the company's prospects is very difficult. I don't know if any of the three brokers have put out any research or what their guesses are for the future. The company state the the acquisition will be at least double-digit accretive to June 2022 eps(before synergies). You'd certainly hope so given that they are buying a company with higher revenues than themselves and only funding half of it with equity! So this doesn't tell us much at all...did they really raise £140m without communicating a bit more than this to investors? Again, I don't disagree with any of the positive points made but I do believe that it is not just the placing that private investors are being shut out of.

The good news for private investors is that you can now buy below the placing price. High quality company and i am happy to buy back having exited last year. £21.50 and i will add more if it falls further, acquisition looks compelling given that only 33% of Sentry customers are existing CRW clients. Given high barriers to entry this is a huge cross selling opportunity.

Seems though the main part of the purchase covers the debt in Sentry so the EBITDA looks ok without it. The tax losses will help as well

They have shown scant regard for the principles of pre-emption and yet they have the nerve to put out this statement: "Craneware consulted with a number of its major shareholders prior to the Placing and has respected the principles of pre-emption through the allocation process. The Company is pleased by the support it has received from both existing and new shareholders." Of course, all the major shareholders knew this was coming hence the drift down in the share price. But not to save even a small amount for private investors is very disappointing especially for a 23% dilution. I might buy some more except I haven't seen or heard the presentation that the institutions have. Last year Diploma, a FTSE 250 member and much bigger company than CRW, made a 10% equity raise for an acquisition and gave shareholders a chance to buy through PrimaryBid. Why can't these guys do this? I agree it would be nice for all shareholders to be treated equally but shouldn't it be mandatory?

right so we just have to take this dilution on the chin I hope the acquisition is worth it. Short term downward pressure on the shares looks inevitable. Would have been nice for the ordinary shareholder to have had the opportunity to participate.

Rush of blood to bonce yesterday when CRW broke through my upper trend line at £25.50.Broker wouldn't give an online quote so settled on a limit at 25.50. Ask was at 26 within 10 minutes. Disinclined to increase, I left it expecting CRW to carry on up. Close of business showed my limit accepted! Today the ask remained at £26 but the bid dropped to 24.50. Chanced a quote, to be bid 25.60 and took it. I should, of course be buying when the price falls through the bottom trend line but it does make you wonder what the MM's are playing at. Looking at the trades today, there are lots ~25.50 marked as buys. Nearly made a quid anyway.

Hi all, a new article on Craneware has been posted to my website, looking at the recent update and analysis of the financials. Available here: hxxps://www.thetwentiestrader.com/post/will-cranewares-migration-to-cloud-based-software-be-positive-for-its-shares

Investor's Champion comments: Trading at 44x forecast earnings for the current financial year ending, the rating looks full on this simple measure, but Craneware has the attraction of plenty of visibility and growth potential in a highly supportive market going through significant change.

Good recent H1 update ! "The Group has delivered a strong performance in the first half of the year against the ongoing backdrop of the pandemic and a volatile dollar exchange rate. The increased sales momentum has resulted in growth at both the revenue and adjusted EBITDA levels of greater than 5% compared to the first half of the prior year (HY20 Revenue: $35.9m, adjusted EBITDA $12.7m). The Group secured new sales at a significantly higher level than in the first half of the prior year; the Group’s customer retention rate has remained above 90% and the dollar renewal rate of customers at the end of their multi-year contracts has returned to approximately 100%; all building the foundation for a return to double-digit growth in the future. The Group’s cash reserves remain healthy, delivering ongoing cash conversion rate in excess of 100%. The Group continues to see significant new opportunities entering the sales pipeline and the Board is confident in the continued positive performance of the business and its ability to meet current market expectations1 for the full year ending 30 June 2021 while being cognisant of the macro environment." https://public.craneware.com/investors/aim-rule-26/announcements/2021/trading-update-and-notice-of-results-20-01-2021

Good solid update. I have sold out this morning mainly because of US dollar earnings exposure and the share price has rerated over the past 6 months, high quality company and i will reinvest if it falls back during the year.

I’ve been topping up recently, clearly the market expects a positive TU this month. Given the democrats control the senate the outlook should be bullish IMO. Strong buy at these levels and expect to hit all time highs in Q1

That was an excellent update, basically growth has returned to normalised levels so this should return to previous highs, my target price is £2900. I couldn’t resist a small top up this morning when stock was available at £1980. Quality company with an excellent outlook deserving of a premium rating

AGM tomorrow. share price up about 25% over the last month on thinnish volumes. On dummy trades, bid is usually at the mid price.

the major concern here for me is the dollar exchange rate. The pound has fallen off so far due to Brexit and COVID that if it strengthens it could be detrimental to returns?

Full year figures today, much as expected. https://uk.advfn.com/stock-market/london/craneware-CRW/share-news/Craneware-plc-Final-Results/83294633 Slight nudge up in revenue/ebitda. Considering the customer loss last year and Covid this year, quite a reassuring set of numbers. the forward revenue figure of 200m over the next three years is a solid foundation for further progress. Added to my over weight position, heyho.

nailen, given the TU, might you share anything re the basis for the Shares Mag tip? Flat numbers no surprise in the circumstances. I took a view a little while ago and from the TU I'm now particularly noting Neilson's outlook being "optimistic". (Rather different to being "confident"!)

It seems perverse that, at a time when accounting and billing in US hospitals is likely to ramp up significantly, Cranewear's share price should be falling. Is it not rather likely that sales of software and associated support would be expected to increase?
