As I suspected. Results as exepected. No real impact on share price. For holders at higher value, either cut losses or hope for management change. With no more news for 6 months and a warning of tough trading conditions, this may slide further! IMO DYOR

i agree to a large extent,it would be nice if the business started to move in the right direction for a change .The point im making is the business is almost valued at nothing(maybe it s/b),the goodwill is virtually wo now +bal.sheet rock solid. some shares you need in your portfolio that are safe,asset backed with a yield. yes ive held forever too.

Feedthegoat, The picture that you paint is the same old, same old. This company has less cash, less t/o and profit and less customers than it used to. Despite big city announcements about new products we have heard nothing since. The results will be interesting but not substantially different from what has been posted before - +/- 5% turnover, 1.8m on R&D, new products being developed and Oh slight increase in divi to keep holders happy. Safe share sure - but going absolutely nowhere! Held for years - heard it all before. imho. dyor

pommey1 - having worked in the distribution trade although never having used EDP products my self, I know for a fact that several of their clients are walking in the near future. People ask how if I have never used their stuff then how can I comment? Well, I am in regularly in contact with current EDP clients and I can tell you they are about to jump ship soon.

The software is very old and pick based. Rumour has it that they are developing a windows version. Somewhat too late I feel. It's quite surpising that for a company that spends nearly 2 million a year on R+D that they still have all these legacy systems out there. I had also heard that a number of customers were looking and going elsewhere.Just my own opinion of course. DYOR

adam - my contact in manchester, a paper distibutor, tells me that all these new fancy technologies look good on paper but there is one main problem. The core product of EDP is called Merchant. The problem is that this Merchant is bug ridden and in places does not do what it is suppossed to do. It is also based on an old Pick style system which suppossedly is a dinosour. He also says that at times the service from EDP is rubbish. I am by no means an expert but my contact who is a user of EDP systems tells me that it is pointless EDP talking about XML HTML or whatever when they cannot get the core product right. I am stating on this info on a second hand basis, but it is coming straight from the horses mouth, the product is not good, the technology is old and customers are walking. The fancy XML stuff is just a smokescreen for a company still stuck in the 60's and 70's imo.

Get out of this stock now. Commercially this company sitting on a dead duck. Using old style computing and OS technology, PICK, that noone wants or uses anymore. Pick was big in the 60's but that's about it. Likewise the company stuck in a timewarp, does not move with the times. Why do you think they are getting customers to pledge 5 years to contracts when they sign up?

Jowitt selling and they continue to lose court case after court case. He needs to spend more time running the business and less time learning to be an advocate. The word on the street is that customers who were not straight-jacketed by the last round of upgrades are walking. Poor product or terrible leader? I'm out.

Agreed, I'm not sure that a company like this should be trying to hide director dealings buying or selling. Indeed the other directors should be buying in more often as they only have small options!
