No, sorry, I’m not getting my point across. The issue is that since 2015, they have been including all of the Kx profits in their EPS, but they only own 35% of the company. I realise there is a liability on the balance sheet to account for the NCI Put. That’s the point: they have been treating the Kx subsidiary as if the put option had already been exercised. But it hadn’t been exercised, until the summer of 2018. I see this as highly aggressive, with the effect of inflating their reported EPS.

mog I tend to agree on this point. I don't think paying this off will be a serious issue. The loan to market capital ratio is an issue of sorts especially after the price drop but again its not a serious issue. What worries myself are the following: The revenue per employee. That simply does not add up to a software company making lots of sales. It looks like the old model of people revenue is still generating a large % of income. The way shakti has emerged. Maybe this is over reacting but it is another valid concern. Kx ( or the product kdb+ )is world leading software in the finance sector and has been for a number of years. However the fact that the founders have started something in the same space. Has kx reached the end of its shelf life? No apparent sales outside the financial sector. When will these start, because as of now they seem thin on the ground. Lots of activity but no real results. The red bull racing story is red herring. Will anyone ask at the chat day exactly how much sales revue that generated. How many others are lie this?

ds, Glavey will take your post and comment on any spelling mistakes in order to negate the valid point you make. Same applies to the revenue of the company per head. Glavey, I didn't question your sincerity, I said it fell short. Splendid headline over on share prophets. Not called for but entertaining and a valid underlying point again.

The way this has been slammed I'm surprised the Russians are not implicated. Let's hope they can get one big one over the line with details and hopefully we can have another twlo. That was slammed back from 70$ to 20 and now 100

Glavey Clearly flybyknight has some difficulties with the english language recently but he has a few fair points overall, none of those you have addressed May I suggest trying to debate on this board with points of a technical nature rather than the approach you are currently on Your attempt at sincerity has fallen short What is a datalex?

"Entitled to my view" Although you previously wrote "I not have opinion". "I have no difficulty. I will not resort to attacking person privately" It wasn't an attack, it was a sincere attempt to understand your contrariety, etc.

Really I would have expected that you might make the effort to review your own posts, not ask me to do it for you. Please be conscious of what you write. Your earlier posts were notably more lucid than recent, almost as though they were written by another person - have you some difficulty of which we are not aware?

Oh it's British alright down around Newry. The troops , helicopters, armoured vehicles and fortified watch towers. Definitely were all British.

If you’re British you are on the Mainland and British, unlike Ulsterwomen/Ulstermen/Ulsterpersons. Last time I looked the UK was (and I presume still is) the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland

This is not an Irish company. British people can be hugely ignorant on this score but Northern Ireland is in the UK.

Glavey which point are not correct or bias on that link Simon clearly you dont know history of kx Yes it used in a lot of banks but it has never expanded outside that Sham red bull deal case to consider Look at owners of shakti [ It stated on website as founders of kx at one point ] Up to end of year I long holder

I presume the SEC, CME, ASIC, 90% investment banks, hedge funds such as citadel, brokers are all just wrong about the technology.. not hard to search linkedin and see which places have hired kdb developers.

Are you referring to aquaQ which has been around for a decade? Not uncommon to have a competitor in the consulting aspect of a technology. The difference is first derivatives is the IBM, owner and provider . Big multinational companies like to work with the OEM and not some untrialed spin off if there was ever that .. plus you can't just rebuild and employ entire teams on the client side because xyz was on paper a cheaper product.Silly and small sighted. If you look at the hires at senior level in the company it paints a different picture. They have gotten some great well respected names. Not sure who you refer to by leaving?
