An interesting staircase channel has developed since the February lows. ECK is not alone in seeing an improvement which is shared with some other cybersecurity companies, notably NCC, and payment processors, e.g. UNG.

Possibly more people looking at what opportunities are out there and finally taking notice of the last update. The current share price seems more than justified, after all it was only 6/7 months ago that ECK was trading at 42p and considerable progress has been made since. 04 March 2019 Eckoh plc ("Eckoh") Strong Contract Momentum Continues Eckoh, the global provider of secure payment products and customer contact solutions, is pleased to announce it continues to experience strong contract momentum, with more than GBP10m in contract value secured since the half year (30(th) September 2018). This reflects success in both the UK and the US in converting significant pipeline opportunities and renewals of existing contracts. The UK has benefitted particularly from its partnership channel, whilst the US has had continued traction with healthcare insurers and the retail sector. Strong momentum in the UK New contract wins include the largest Omnichannel agreement Eckoh has won since the acquisition of Klick2Contact in 2016. This 5-year contract, which was won in a competitive tender process, will see Eckoh provide an existing business process outsourcing partner with Omnichannel capability for one of its largest clients, with the services expected to be extended to further clients in due course. Other new contracts include a secure payments agreement worth an initial GBP0.8m won through a longstanding telecoms partner, which will see the first implementation on behalf of a large nationwide automotive dealership. We have also entered into new contracts with two utility companies worth GBP0.4m. Significant contracts have also been renewed including a three-year agreement for customer engagement with Vue Cinemas, and a two-year renewal with a central government department to continue providing secure payment services. These were the two largest UK contracts to come up for renewal in this financial year. US traction continues Building on our success with healthcare insurers we have won further secure payments contracts from this sector, all three years in length, totalling $2.6m in value. We have also signed a three-year contract with a product provider to financial institutions worth over $1m. In the retail sector we have contracted for our patented CallGuard solution with a well-known multi-channel interiors retailer and this contract is being delivered completely through Eckoh's Cloud platform, which is hosted in Amazon Web Services. Whilst Cloud opportunities are still much smaller in size, we do expect this to change over time, and Eckoh is the only US provider who can deliver contact centre payment security through either an on-site deployment, a hosted managed service or in the Cloud. The Group's significant US presence, together with our ability to provide completely US-based implementation teams, with ease of integration, and local support are key differentiators identified by customers. In the Support area of Eckoh's US business, through a new partnership with a multinational technology company, we have renewed a significant contract for a telecommunications client. The partner came to Eckoh having seen the pedigree of our support services and the contract is initially worth $1.0m with the potential to increase to $2.8m depending on future support requirements. Nik Philpot, Chief Executive Officer, said: "After an extremely strong first half to the year, it has been very encouraging to see that momentum continue with multiple new contract wins, alongside key renewals, which underpin future market forecasts. These contract wins, with such well-known enterprises, reflects Eckoh's position as the preferred supplier for the largest companies. We have also made excellent progress with key strategic initiatives, such as establishing a market leading position in Cloud delivery for Secure Payments, the ongoing development of our Omnichannel solution and broadening our partner relationships to accelerate our penetration of our key markets."

Sometimes ECK put out the odd trading update. Otherwise, unless there is some "special news", the next major update will be circa mid June with the announcement of the finals.

Been a ECK holder for years, without a constant drip of positive news updates the shareprice inevitably drifts lower. The US venture is taking forever to yield significant results (I've lost track on how long ago that happened). ...edit, edit: In November 2015, Eckoh acquired the US business Product Support Solutions (“PSS”), predominantly in order to support Eckoh’s continued expansion of its Secure Payments products in the US, where PSS has a significant presence. hTTps://investors.eckoh.com/investor-news/trading-update-2-september-2016/

The company's general approach to product development costs appears to one of charging mainly to p&l rather than capitalising them. This avoids the risk of a heavy one-off write down if a particular project turns sour. The analysis of factors leading to the final cash flow is a more complex exercise but overall the picture here looks quite healthy and might tend to indicate that real and potential profitabilty is at least as good as claimed. I suspect that many companies wishing to emphasise growth would have chosen to guild the profit lily a little more strongly. From the final results - "Whilst Eckoh continue to innovate by developing new products and features such as those detailed in the Chief Executive's Review, little of this is capitalised on the balance sheet with only GBP0.3m (FY17: GBP0.2m) added in the year to the value of the intangible fixed assets of the Company. Whilst taking a prudent approach to capitalising salary cost reduces reported profit, management believes this approach gives an accurate reflection of the trading performance of the Company."

shoee62, interesting concept re p/free cash flow ratio and not one that I’ve come across, or if I have I can’t remember. As these new “big” contracts start to generate more cash, and because ECK’s products are generally software/IT based, I don’t get the impression they will require a great deal of capital expenditure to service (hence more of the new cash flowing is “free”)? ECK’s (imposed) switch from the Capex to Opex model seems a long time ago now.

Agree it looks like a seller still there. In the FY results, they show a useful table of contract wins, and avg size for the US payments side. FY17 avg of $918k was distorted by a large win of $3.7m, so this win is going to distort it again. Avg for FY18 was $776k. I think the market is slow to react to this with the switch from Capex to Opex pricing(Saas), plus IFRS15, deferring revenue. That is despite Saas revenue companies trading on significantly higher multiples than license and support ones. Looking at Stockopedia, the PE number is 48, but price to free cash flow is 21 which cuts to the reality of the ability of the business to generate cash.

according to today's RNS, Kestrel unloaded circa 1.3 shares on Monday

There are definitely indications of someone unloading shares at round figures (41p, 42p etc.). If a single entity starting with 3%+ and sales exceed about 2.5m shares a holdings rns should emerge. Either way we may not make much progress until they have finished.

A quantity of shares seems to have been made availble at 41p (1.64 million). The seller may have finished at 41p so the price has moved on a bit. A similar looking sell has occurred (60k) at 42p, so may stick around this level for a time.

The queation sometimes becomes, Who is an insider? If the MD, CFO or Head of Sales (etc) arranges a trip to the States (etc), there are a number of people who will know about it, e.g. his travel agent. I don't think this makes the travel agent or someone that sees his booking, an insider - he will not know who his client has arranged to see or why. He may however speculate on the importance of the trip and decide to take a positon. So there is a genuine query as to where to draw the line. I recall a visit many years ago by some directors of GEC to a competitor company in a similar electrical field. Their car was parked discretely around the corner but was spotted by a junior employee of the visited company. It had the give-away registration number AE1 (AEI being a susidiary trading company of GEC at the time.) A bid duly followed shortly afterwards. The answer is possibly a trading suspension pending announcement, triggered by a share price sensitivity function.

Insider trading is rife but as its usually only the PI's that lose out the authorities don't give a dam. They are all bent. Good rise none the less.

I too am disappointed with the news management (and not just on this occasion), surely it would be easy to track down who was dealing on Friday and look at any possible associations with the company. ...unfortunately, this kind of news leakage is something I’ve come to expect from ECK

It’s always ‘strange’; how significant trades are made days before ‘price sensitive’ news is officially announced. It smacks of ‘insider dealing’ and should be throroughly investigated in the interests of transparency, as it isn’t ‘Rocket science’. Yet we rarely hear about it, or of people actually being prosecuted. This is great news for ECK and clearly been in preparation for quite a while. Although I have been expecting Contract news for some time, so am delighted to read the scale of the numbers. $7.4m ‘Largest ever Contract’ competively won and expected to impact over the next 2 years. Well done ECK.

Shares like ECK that are on an expectational rating require a steady stream of growth news to prevent them from sagging. Well we ceratainly have some here and the expectation will be maintained of further US contracts to come. This should be good for 10 to 20% rise in share price (imho). A pity that the price action on Friday seemed to anticipate the announcement - but possibly just a non-specific hint somehow that a rns was being prepared.
