Crunch time tomorrow - we either break out or retrace - can't decide at the moment although i'd bet that a few shorters have opened positions this afternoon, waiting for the normal retrace. All good fun!!

good post felix I haven't looked at the Data accounts for some time, but presumably the accounts going forward will not have an annual amortisation charge going through the P&L under IFRS. My understanding is that intangible assets are now reviewed annually for impairment rather than automatically depreciated. Investec, in their note a couple of days ago, posted the following estimates: FY2005: PBT £2.5m, EPS 5.3p FY2006: PBT £3.6m, EPS 5.9p its a shame that the increasing tax charge in 2006 (having used up all prior losses), will hold back EPS growth a bit.

Just posted this over on iii, but that board looks pretty quiet these days... I saw an article in yesterday's evening std re the aquisition by Sage of Verus Financial Management, a US credit, debit and cheque processing business for £184m. It said Sage are seeking similar credit processing opportunities in Europe, as they believe that the e-commerce boom is happening for real now. Then we have the statement by Datacash that they expect to pay a dividend this year. Will they just pay a divi relative to their profits, or will they release some more of that £4.8m cash pile? Finally I am encouraged by the new CEO. I can only speculate that the previous CEO was ousted because he didn't succeed on the 'Cardholder Present' front, but in any case the new guy looks to have good experience and great contacts - particularly in EPOS - so could make a difference. Clearly the route to this share taking off will be either a move into the CHP market to exploit the spare capacity DATA have, or acquisition. I feel both have just got more likely, so have got back in after years of watching this stock. Seems also to me to be only limited downside, given the straight line growth in transactions they have achieved for 4-5 years now, which feed directly to the bottom line, plus the cash. Based on my projections on transaction volumes, which have followed the actuals pretty well over the last few years, I am expecting them to achieve £6.1m revenue, £2.7m pbt pre-amort and 1.0p eps for 2005. For 2006 I have pencilled in £8.0m revenue, £4.6m pbt pre-amort and 4.1p eps. Without the large amortisation figure from the acquisition they did some years ago, the figures would be pretty stunning, with 2006 eps rising to 7.4p and a p/e of just 17. Clearly when the amortisation is complete (or restated by FRS3?) we are left here with a highly profitable business growing at 30% pa, even without the boost of CHP. Views anyone? DYOR

Reading between the lines and talking to others this has all the hallmarks of a "loss of confidence" vote in the CEO - with other Data directors lining up a replacement before Cave is pushed so that the market does not read this negatively. S

BB, Not sure how much equity Cave has but he's quite new so doubtful that he holds more than few % of the equity - in which case would it really matter if he opposed a takeover because the shareholders could force an EGM and take a vote regardless? S

Interesting - market likes it. Reasons? 1. Takeover and CEO opposed so was pushed 2. He has a terminal illness or a relative has a serious illness 3. He is stealing all the ip and setting up a rival company or was caught doing so. 4. They have got an excellent replacement set up and CEO has a sulk and resigned. I suspect it will be linked to (1)

BLT, very rare for the CEO to leave with immediate effect without there being some sort of problem behind the scenes - not with the numbers but with him personally perhaps. I shall try my sources and see what i can find out!! Stuart

Interesting - the director sales may therefore have been to boost liquidty and to keep the instutions sweet. Can't help thinking DATA has a lot lot further to go. This is a classic buy and hold - I really should buy more but a lot of cheap shares about at the moment.
