Do you think investors will sue the auditor of Patisserie Holdings? Genuine question.

And no I do not believe many large companies are corrupt to the core. I believe they are driven obsessively by profit generation and profit growth and long may that continue. But such obsession is controlled by the rule of law and scrutiny of published accounts by global audit firms who are sued if they fail investors.

No I don't I am keeping an open mind until I hear and read the company's half year results and commentary I do not accept that companies are inherently corrupt. I believe in business ethics and standards and the scrutiny of global audit firms.

clearly share profit people have an axe to grind despite what anyone say the accounting mishap is at best odd it unlikely anything sinister would be left so easy to spot audit and finance team more probably let ball drop if it an actual issue Moorsie read fact many large companies corrupt to core team asking questions is what make thing honest either way Moorsie do you agree it takes away somewhat from earnings ?

Thanks for the advice Moorsie. It raises a question in my mind, however: If a company’s executives overtly reject basic principles of corporate governance, such as rotating ones auditor, why would you not question them?

Yes, they will have been signed off by KPMG Belfast, their auditor of 20 years... has anyone ever heard of the Cadbury Report?

That’s not technically true. They are yet to complete the transaction, although it has now been agreed. Still, they didn’t own 100% during any of the previous 3 years.

No they don’t. They own 65% of it. They have recently agreed to acquire the remaining 35%, but in the last three sets a of annual accounts they only owned 65%. And yet, they consolidated the revenues and profits 100%, with out any minority interest line on the p&l. It’s Quite odd.

Shareprophets making more noise on FD this morning. The accusation is simple: they have been fully consolidating the revenues and profits of the Kx subsidiary, of which they own 65%. That's ok - however, there has been no minority interest line on the P&L so the EPS has been (allegedly) overstated by 30 to 50%. Normally, when a third of your reported EPS is attributable to non controlling interests in a subsidiary, you highlight this on the P&L. I wonder if the company has anything to say about it.

Interesting use of the word "Material" - looks like they are responding to the shorter criticism.. FD (AIM: FDP.L, ESM: FDP.I) announces that it has signed a material OEM deal with

Looks like the shorts are having to claw back their stock. After reading that report it is clear those people have no idea of the business. Yes they can quote accounting figures and yes they can smear management but one must remember elementary statistics, correlation is not causation and that is what they want to paint in their report. I don't think FD as they are known want to portray themselves as a software firm. They have traditionally been a consulting firm offering "consulting services to some of the world's largest finance, technology and energy institutions". Perhaps the analyst needs to review the literature and look at the case study of IBM to reflect on her judgement. Owning a technology and providing consultants is a good model. The technology is ingrained in finance, speak with any bank and you will quickly learn how ingrained it is, albeit Goldman who decided to try and replicate such a tech but failed..Their be tired arm is interesting. Imagine having a tech which solves alot of the challenges. It does not cost much to expose this in return for equity. As an addition to this, with a government grant it costs a little bit less. Dont be surprised if these investments start to pay off soon. Insight provided by prior readers, refer to company accounts, down of these companies are starting to see major increase in revenue. I'm not trying to portray a picture here, just trying to unjustify an idiotic report which sole purpose is trying to smear a company for its own interests. Investigate FD , but Investigate them too. Perhaps go to one of their tech event they hold .. it's a great way to see the insight and vision accomplished developers see in the technology.

Danzo, "but given the company has never experienced a downturn" Not so, it was around in 2007-8-9.
