A harsh assessment at this stage. It takes time to make changes. Time is running out though.

Sadly after the untimely passing of BC it appears then shoulders onto which it fell have proven ineffective

If an undisclosed issue appears and is not reported in means the CFO and senior management are complicit. If the projections and sales figures have been massaged same thing applies. With share price falling staff retention via options is diminished. Can the senior management react? A vote of Confidence would be a set of director buys.

Looks TW was right Nothing now but stock in free fall being further discredit and thereby any client will run a mile fearing a serious underlying undisclosed issue with either accounting gymnastics or software security issues

No need to be the comments of shorts that irritate it's that of a disgruntled long that has seen this pumped by management to 46 only for all the statements to be puffery on potential

I’m happy to listen to both points of view. But when persons are just trolling it begs the question “ why troll”? my outlook now is flat here so people can see how transition happens and what planning was achieved in last months

shorters rarely provide evidence they just want to stoke fear

Why do you say the kx technology is obsolete? I’m not behind the fundamentals of this company sometimes but the kx technology seems strong for ext few years. While you may be right do you have evidence to support this statement?

Congrats to the shorts and TW. Right all along and given the rally in tech of late it seems Kx is obsolete

Yeah, am I right in saying they failed to sell the amount they went out with? Sold 1.4, were offering 1.5? I might have that wrong - skim read it. If that’s right then it’s probably more significant than the other insider sales. Especially given the discount. Surprising given its been trading up from here for quite a while post results. AIM can be the canary in the mine though - usually it offers a good early indicator on a correction in the broader market... first to go down, liquidity dries up, etc

Congratulations to FD management. The greed and hubris could not be better summed up by TWWho needs TW when they collapse the stock by naked greed. BC is understandable but to announce options at the same time and sales by insiders has to be applauded for incompetence

Well the speculation of a takeover will be finally put to bed if a large suitor does not take the lot

Quite likely, and seems fair enough for him to enjoy the fruits of his labours given his health situation, which hopefully will turn out fine

Is this the reason for the price swings of the past few days? First Derivatives plc ("FD" or the "Group") today announces that it has been advised that Brian Conlon, Chief Executive Officer, is proposing to sell at least 1.5 million shares in the Group (the "Placing Shares"), representing approximately 5.7 per cent. of the Group's issued share capital, via an accelerated bookbuild through Goodbody Stockbrokers UC ("Goodbody") and Investec Bank plc ("Investec") (the "Placing"). The Group is not party to the Placing and will not receive any proceeds from the Placing. Mr. Conlon currently holds approximately 29.8 per cent. of the voting rights of the Group and following the Placing, assuming the Placing is fully placed, will hold approximately 24.1 per cent. of the voting rights of the Group. If the Placing proceeds, Mr. Conlon has agreed with Goodbody and Investec not to sell his remaining shares for a period of six months (subject to certain customary exceptions).

FD (AIM: FDP.L, Euronext Growth: FDP.I) announces it has completed the acquisition of the minority shareholdings in Kx Systems, in line with the terms announced on 2 July 2018. Completion of the transaction takes the Group's ownership of Kx Systems to 100% for consideration of $53.8m in cash, which has been paid from FD's available facilities. Brian Conlon, Chief Executive Officer of FD, said: "Since we acquired a controlling stake in Kx Systems in October 2014 we have invested heavily to deliver the performance advantages of our combined solutions, branded as Kx technology, to a range of end-markets. We are making exciting progress as we demonstrate our ability to transform our customers' operational performance by unlocking the value in their data. Full ownership of Kx Systems is an important milestone as we continue to commercialise our technology."

Salesforce paying $15.7bn for tableau ...the target has sales of $1.2bn. With Google snapping up Looker for $2.6bn and the rivalry hotting up with MSFT, Oracle and SAP, I expect FDP will be snapped up after they have the Kx deal wrapped up and continue to execute in the non Financial IoT verticals. The £900mn market cap looks like peanuts compared with the big US tech transactions.
