MMs suckering sellers to get some stock? A few sellers around on a quiet day? A bit of understandable profit-taking after the vertiginous rise? Who knows/ What we do know is there's no new news, so just take pleasure in the last few years' outperformance and relax :o))

Nice review on Techmarketview: Http://www.techmarketview.com/ukhotviews/archive/2018/09/28/ideagens-latest-acquisition-morgan-kai "Friday 28 September 2018 Morgan Kai: more audit management capability for Ideagen The latest acquisition by Ideagen sees it increase its internal audit management capability with the £20.5m cash purchase of Morgan Kai. This was an area of the market Ideagen moved into with the purchase of Pantana in 2013 so the new asset has a home to move into. It fits with Ideagen’s strategic goals of acquiring GRC companies with their own IP and rising recurring revenue. Morgan Kai (bases in Leeds and Chicago) also brings more international business as 77% of its customer base is outside the UK, where customers include the Federal Reserve, Investec, the New York Stock Exchange, Bombardier and Blue Cross Blue Shield; UK customers include the National Audit Office and Anglo Dutch Shell. As a provider to highly regulated vertical markets including public sector, banking and finance, engineering, healthcare and energy, it aligns with Ideagen’s focus on supplying information management to highly regulated sectors. With 28 staff and a £5.3m revenue run rate, Morgan Kai is a relatively small but potentially profitable addition that is expected to add £2m additional EBITDA for the year to 30 April 2020. It has the makings of another useful addition to the Ideagen portfolio. The overall goal of the company is to sustain the doubling of revenues and adjusted EBITDA every three years. Earlier this year it rejigged the management structure: former CEO, David Hornsby became Executive Chairman with a remit around strategy, M&A and Investor Relations, while Ben Dorks (former Chief Customer Officer) took Hornsby’s position as CEO to focus on operational performance, customer acquisition and retention, and product development. So far so good while the most recent full year saw the 9th year of consecutive growth."

Looks terrific - and immediately earnings-enhancing. A bargain price too, paying £20.5m for £2m EBITDA, with high recurring revenues and a terrific blue chip client base. Interesting also that they say the "combined business will....represent the clear number 2 vendor in the Internal Audit Market which the board believe will provide an opportunity to further increase market share."

Another contract win. EPCOR in project with Ideagen to upgrade safety and quality 24 September 2018 EPCOR, the Dutch maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) organisation for the global aviation industry, is to implement a software solution from Ideagen to enhance both safety and quality management. Ideagen Q-Pulse, Ideagen’s flagship quality management software, will improve processes around audit performance as well as help to surface trends from audit findings and highlight key safety issues. The system will also allow EPCOR to control general operational business processes as it continues a period of rapid growth. Ali Nekoui, Safety and Quality Engineer at EPCOR, said: “In the company’s early days our main tasks involved work for KLM but since then the business has expanded globally and we maintain APU’s and pneumatic components for other airlines now, with around 100 clients globally.” Ali continued: “It was for this reason that we decided to completely upgrade both of our quality and safety management systems and associated processes. “Q-Pulse will make it possible for us to conduct enhanced analysis of our occurrence reporting. We want to be able to look closely at our data and highlight the main topic trends that are emerging from our operations. This will let us see how we are performing in certain areas across the organisation, providing us with the data needed to make key operational decisions such as whether we need to start an investigation or begin corrective action procedures.” Mr. Nekoui added: “Q-Pulse will allow us to check graphical analysis and dig into our data for more in-depth information. The power to be able to do that through Q-Pulse will be key for us and provide an immediate oversight of safety.” Founded in 1999 and based at Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport, EPCOR overhauls auxiliary power units (APU) and pneumatic components for a variety of aviation organisations. The organisation was initially launched through a joint venture between Hamilton Sundstrand and KLM, and is a 100% owned subsidiary of Air France Industries KLM Engineering & Maintenance (AFI KLM E&M). EPCOR counts the likes of Air Canada, Egypt Air, Virgin Atlantic and China Southern Airlines amongst its global client base. Ideagen is a UK-headquartered, global software firm that provides software and services to some of the largest organisations in the world. Its diverse and varied customer base includes many well-known, global brands such as International Airlines Group (IAG), Aggreko, BAE, Ryanair, US Navy, KLM, BBVA, Commerzbank, Meggitt, Heineken, Johnson Matthey, Haeco Group and European Central Bank. As well as this, Ideagen counts 180 hospitals across the UK and US amongst its client base.

News - another American contract win: Https://www.ideagen.com/company/news/ideagen-to-work-with-us-based-summit-aviation/ "Ideagen to help Summit Aviation achieve cost and labour savings via First Article Inspection software 17 September 2018 The US-based aviation maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) and manufacturing organisation will adopt Q-Pulse FAIR to help with contracts relating to Airframe OEM’s Ideagen has announced it is to work with a prominent US-based aviation organisation in a project that will ease first article inspections and 3D model conversions. Summit Aviation, founded in 1960, will implement Ideagen’s Q-Pulse FAIR software, part of Ideagen's Q-Pulse Product Management suite, to boost efficiencies and reduce costs during projects with clients such as Boeing, Sikorsky and Northrop Grumman. As part of its services, the company – acquired by Greenwich AeroGroup ten years ago – is required to carry out first article inspections, also known as FAIs, relating to parts including tailbooms, engines, landing gears and wing ribs. Andy Bullock, Summit Aviation’s Director of Quality says the project will help the company save “thousands of dollars” and “hundreds of hours of labour”. “We believe this project will provide us with around a 50% saving in labour,” said Mr Bullock. “In 2016, our Kentucky plant completed more than 1000 FAIs which equated to around 4,000 man hours so you can imagine the costs associated with that. etc"
