The revenues are restated by a huge amount. A change of from30 to 60% is huge and either points to ineptness or worse by the management or a mistake by the person sending the note How can this be explained. It is items like this that make investment risky. And 5hey keep cropp8ng up. 30% of FDP revenues isn’t a small amount of money.

FD (AIM: FDP.L, ESM: FDP.I) announces that it has been selected by a leading global oilfield services company for the use of Kx technology to provide operational intelligence for their customers' oil and gas field assets. This contract, awarded after a thorough technology evaluation by the client, extends the range of Kx use cases within the energy market and showcases the ability of Kx to deliver actionable insights at the edge. The flexibility and open nature of the Kx platform will enable new processes and data-intensive analytics to be added as required both in the field and centrally. Using Kx technology to deliver big data levels of analytic capability to the edge, where compute resources are limited, will enable the client to increase efficiency. This represents a new use case for Kx, which the client expects to generate a high return on investment and should be of interest across the broader energy and industrial IoT markets. Seamus Keating, Chief Executive Officer, FD commented: "Making decisions at the time and place where action is required can deliver major operational efficiencies. We believe Kx is the only technology capable of delivering this solution, enabling decision-making in real-time on vast volumes of data. As organisations increasingly look to drive action, not just reports from the data they generate, Kx stands out for its high performance and ability to operate at the edge."

Good PH note out today on FDP. Comprehensive and more detailed than most. They restate software revenues at 30% of total, not 60% as categorised by FDP, and give a £31 valuation. Generally a positive note and points to improving FCF over the last 3 years.

Somewhat disappointed they haven't appointed an external candidate as CEO as that would have put to bed the shorters' stories of dodgy accounting. However Seamus Keating does have extensive experience so should do a good job.

Founded by Marcel Houtzager and Peter Zaldivar in 2003, Kabouter invests in non-US small and mid-sized companies, describing itself as a ‘friendly activist’. It specialises in uncovering lesser known companies from a global universe of 15,000 securities. The company runs $2.67 billion (£1.9 billion) on behalf of family offices and institutions. In its brochure, the company says: ‘Where beneficial, we may seek to add value through friendly shareholder activism such as discussing with company management potential business combinations, expansion strategies and corporate governance changes. ‘We believe companies benefit from our work in the form of improved business combination terms, increased analyst coverage and a higher profile among international institutional investors.

Ah Mr B tell me which co has responded to Mr W? Have you never heard of bounded rationality? It is beneath the co to repsond to allegations, because if you respond to one - you then have to repsond to any and all spurious allegations. A dignified silence does wonders for the share price (notice the climb?). Yes i realise it dropped from a frothy height. Now if your unhappy with what is going on you can always attend the AGM and question the board. As an aside I find fat simon more convincing Edited to add - erm the information re the awards and offices are on the FDP website. You dont do RNS's for these sort of things - it costs money dontchaknow!

So Swiss Paul : "you don't reply to that kind of thing" being TWIf TW has caused more than a 50% collapse in market cap and the company remains silent, do you not think silence is maintained because they cannot satisfactorily address his allegations? The have a duty to shareholders to uphold the integrity of the enterprise and accounting standards. Silence speaks volumes
