Only 1 Non Exec director has been selling, apparently to raise some cash - his main job is with FGP(!!!), and there's a statement today that he won't be selling any more. I'm more interested as to why the share price shot up after his sale on Tuesday - he dealt at 100.1, then there was a 10% increase in the share price - as if someone knew he was a seller & was holding back the price so they could place the shares with a friendly mate? I could see 125 before Christmas as a reasonable target, provided there's some decent news flow, & a bit more clarity on dividend intentions for 2013 & 2014

Interestingly, the main thread here http://uk.advfn.com/exchanges/LSE/dillistone-DSG/share-price has a link called "dillistone takeover rumours". There's no content, but is this really a possibility? What sort of price would tempt them?

Down 2p on Friday. Looks like it may sink back through £1 this week. Think I'll see where support is before making any call on this. GL all.

Cheers 2jamdog - A lot's happened in the accounting world over the last 10 years! Under UKGAAP it was optional to capitalise development costs, but a lot of companies didn't bother - too much work to demonstrate they met the criteria, plus the extra record keeping while it was being amortised. Now it's compulsory under IAS which leads to greater comparability across different companies as well as giving a more accurate picture - the cost of the software developed or enhanced is written off over its useful life during which the company receives the benefit through the license revenue it generates.

Until it went public, DSG did write off development costs as incurred, but once it had to comply with IAS rather than UK GAAP it was required to capitalise the development costs and amortise them over their expected useful lives. Directors & auditors will need to look at the total development spend and write off any that has no future value to the business, then capitalise the rest. They should then review the carrying values & remaining lives on a regular basis. This is obligatory under IAS and isn't open for discussion- the rules are there & need to be followed. I think the issue May be that amortisation is less the spend, which really isn't that surprising.

Everyone can have their own way of dealing with the numbers, which is fine. The problem is he doesn't just do this, rather he implies that these software companies are misleading investors (profits are 'inflated' etc). He's saying the numbers are wrong or are suspicious (a red flag comes out at this point). That's quite a serious charge for him to make. Also does he have a go at pharmaceutical companies or media companies that put a load of intangibles on the balance sheet, or is it just software companies - in other words, is he being consistent?

I have sympathy for people applying their own rules to establish their value for a business. I doubt any successful entrepreneurs spreadsheet reflect IAS but does give them the information they value to run their business. More than one way to skin a cat / value a company. Just saying.. :-)

Sorry it's over your head. I guess that's the problem with Paul Scott making the comments he does - the average punter accepts what he says because he knows no better. But Paul Scott keeps repeating this mistake (this is the third software company I hold in recent weeks where this has happened). He is incorrectly suggesting that companies are being creative in their accounting - profits are "boosted" or the companies are "greatly inflating EBITDA" when they capitalise software development costs. This is disingenuous when they are merely following normal and well accepted accounting practice. Maybe he's a qualified accountant (so am I) but he's been "retired" a number of years - people easily forget things or become out of touch (for instance he refers to goodwill amortisation - something that hasn't happened in accounting for a few years). So no, Paul does not understand software companies - and I wouldn't class IND as a software company (though it does have a small amount of software costs included in intangibles).

Over my head. He's a Chartered Accountant and former FD and must have his reasons and as a longstanding and major investor in Indigovison he's no stranger to software companies.

I take issue with Paul Scott's comment: "They do capitalise development spending, £339k in H1, but my my calculations operating profit is stated after a £210k amortisation charge - i.e. profit is only boosted by £129k through capitalising development spend as opposed to expensing it fully as incurred (which is my preferred, more conservative accounting treatment)." Profit is not "boosted by £129k" at all. If Paul wants to pursue his own mickey mouse accounting adjustments that fine, but others should realise he is arguing against international accounting standards. If he prefers a "more conservative accounting treatment" then no doubt he likewise prefers to fully expense expenditure on plant and machinery as incurred - it's the same principle, so why pick out software companies? There's a fundamental accounting concept here that cannot be ignored - costs are matched in the same period as the benefits are received.
