bugs bunny: Bye Bye FFA you made me a nice profit..............Bye ALL
richjp: As well as a significant amount in GHT I also have a smaller sum in FFA which also has moved up a little in the last two days, so I will make the same post on both threads. The chief exec of Fidessa, which for those that don't know is a major software supplier to the banking market, made some remarks on Monday which were positively and quite widely reported in the media yesterday. He said that although trading conditions had been tough, he thought that the banking industry was stabilising and that the future outlook was improving. I wonder if that comment has prompted potential investors to take a look at smaller cap IT companies for value and people that may have had the likes of GHT and FFA on their watch list for some time, have decided to buy in now rather than miss the boat. I suspect that may be the reason for the increase in the share price of both companies rather than any specific news. That is fine for me, however I feel these increases will need to be supported by some positive news in due course.
bugs bunny: Taken from Dreamcatcher. A strong balace sheet means Ffastfill (FFA:AIM) is well positioned to capitalise upon any recovery at its investment banking customer base. One of the £70m caps key selling points is its ability to offer a complete back-to-front office solution that can be rolled out across an organisation's global network. The order book accounts for around 90% of this years £23.6million revenues. Organic sales during the interim period grew 14%, including a 21% SaaS revenue advance.With £2 million of net cash on the balance sheet, more acquisitions to add extra value are possible. Earnings per share (EPS) this year of 0.7p could easily hit 1p in the 12 months to March 2014, and assuring a fairly typical sector-wide Price/earnings (PE) multiple of 20 for the company, that could spark a share price surge.
bugs bunny: Thanks R.....Thought there had been a tip because the small share trades going through recently and the 40% rise would give share price of about that would be very nice to see.
richjp: I am always a bit sceptical about so called target prices. For one thing nobody ever seems to put a timeframe on them. The company seems to be doing the right things so hopefully that will improve the share price at some stage. Small cap companies are often static for ages before some kind of newsflow drives them up (or down of course!).
bugs bunny: Just for reference Yahoo Finance have a target price of 18.5p for the year. Does anyone have anyone idea where these 14p trades are coming from, They are going through as sells however the share price hasnt moved down so I assume the MM's must have a buyer, They all are around the same size trades. Happy New Year to all FFA holders, lets hope this is the year FFA finaly takes off and maybe 18.5p is a real price and not just a target.
bluehair2: This is from the IC from 19.11.12 and worth posting for anyone holding or thinking of holding for the medium term. Ffastfill gets regulation boost A changing environment in investment banking is driving tighter regulation and greater risk control for financial firms' trading activities. That's proving good news for Ffastfill (FFA) - which provides specialist software services for front, middle and back office trading - and the group grew its adjusted half-year operating profit almost 10-fold to £1.4m. Its software-as-a-service (saas) product continued to drive Ffastfill's sale growth, with three new customer wins in the half boosting the overall order book from £13.6m to £22.1m. From that, saas sales generated £15.5m, or 70 per cent of the total - a 36 per cent hike compared with this time last year. Executive chairman Keith Todd said the advantage of the saas system is that banks and trading firms don't need to employ new IT staff, or invest in capital equipment, to get the software up and running. He added that regulation is also changing the way traders operate and, increasingly, trades have to run a pre-deal risk assessment of a client's capital position before they are allowed to proceed, something which Ffastfill's software does in real time. Neither, he maintains, is Ffastfill dependent on trading volumes to generate sales. Housebroker Cannacord Genuity forecasts adjusted full-year pre-tax profit of £3.7m, giving EPS of 0.7p (from £1.9m and EPS 0.4p in 2012).
bugs bunny: SM, I bought into FFA on share price growth 9yrs ago and seen very little until this January. Now FFA have turned the corner and now making money and the business is growing rapidly I would expect a Divi to be paid sooner rather than later. One of the advantages of paying a divi is it raises the company profile and puts FFA into a different league where fund managers look to invest and put money into safer companies thus raising the share price and balancing out going ex divi. We would get the best of both worlds, a share price rise and an income through a divi. When PTS starting paying a divi they saw a 300% increase in the share price over a 12month, however they hit an iceberg "MF Global's business" and previous to that the lehman brothers collapse leading to the ION takeover after share price collapse. Regs Bugs.
bugs bunny: 18 May 2011 FFastFill plc ("FFastFill" or the "Group") FFastFill Partners with IPC Systems to Provide Robust Connectivity Across the Financial Community IPC's Secure Financial Network to Support Low Latency, Non-Member Access to Exchanges and Trading Venues through FFastFill's Global SaaS Capability FFastFill plc (LSE: FFA), the leading provider of Software as a Service ("SaaS") to the global derivatives community is pleased to announce that it has successfully entered a partnership with IPC Systems, Inc., a leading provider of electronic trading communications solutions to the world's top financial services firms and global enterprises, allowing members of IPC's Electronic Connectivity Services (ECS) community to make its pre-trade, post-trade and straight through processing services through FFastFill's hosted execution platform securing non-member access to exchanges and trading venues across the world.

bugs bunny: We could see a fight for control now for FFA however alot is going to depend on ION. ION have 25% of FFA but they also have 29% of PTS...If ION go for PTS first then the FFA share price will rise and would cost more to buy FFA and it may spur Cinnober on to make a bid for FFA. If ION go for FFA then the PTS share price will rise and again cost more to gain control. ION could go for both PTS and FFA at the same time but how deep are ION backers pockets. If Cinnober make an offer for FFA will ION fight. ION should have moved for FFA earlier on...Waiting all this time is going to cost them millions.
