Solid set of interims. It looks crazy cheap to me unless I've missed something - p/e well below 10, which can't be right - its not exactly a humdrum business. Put it up to 10 for a full year and it would give a share price of at least 240p, but that's without the implied increasing revenues. (That's on basic eps, never mind adjusted).

Had forgotton about interims. 7th. last year - I can't find a reference to this year in the RNS's. Must be in there somewhere.

Reckon this has to go for more than the placing price of 205p for sure and I reckon it should make 225/230p if a couple of people come in or more. I think a bid is basically a cert its just a question of from whom and at what price. The way I see it is that the big shareholder put a low ball bid in designed to flush out other bidders. The company will now be sold either at a very good price to a third party that directors are happy to flip the company to or they will MBO the company at a price just better than the lowest bid. either way I think its got to be north of the placing price as Inst will not sell for less which gives you 12p profit currently and hopefully another 20% perhaps on top if a few throw the hats in the ring. If I recall they used to be the biggest Sage support dealer in country so it would be a natural fit to me for Sage to acquire it to use as a base to expand their business upstream or downstream as it were into higher margin consultancy with a readymade customer base. Good luck all - wish I had added a few more after the termination but hey ho. Bought some more this am

Well it seems to move quickly on quite low volumes so any sort of attempts to add to or build a stake in the market could be interesting !

This is a good company, and obviously worth more than the market valued it at, hence the multi offers.

Several indicative offers materially higher will do for me.

Yes, great. Was wandering what happened to the review; looks like we might get over 200p now.

The share price is performing better than some on this thread had expected and is higher than before the approach to the company was first made. Some are speculating that a better offer from a third party could be in the pipeline.

A trading update is now due.Perhaps this will offset a decline.

Will be interesting. The 'bid' rise happened just before quite a few smaller companies rose well off their lows, so KBT could now be sitting at the level it would have recovered to, except it was already there courtesy of the bid possibility - if you get my gist. So perhaps the general reassessment of sound SME's will keep it around this level, especially if some folks didn't buy in for longer term growth because of the bid. I certainly wouldn't have, because I had it earmarked as a growth company, so the bid effectively would have taken it off my 'buy some growth SME's near the bottom' list. There, that should send it down 30p !

Not suprised; just have to be patient; could fall 30p unfortunately.

Micro Focus is an interesting precedent. They were the subject of unsolicited interest from two Private Equity funds last spring/summer. Price before interest was indicated: around 290p. Rumoured take out price: 425p Price whilst talks were ongoing: 360-395p Price(lowest)after talks led to nothing/offers were rejected by the company: 240p Price now: 445p

This is on a sub 7 pe so selling at this price is daft anyway. I note that they turned the offerer down and not the other way around. Will no doubt be marked down by the MMs in the morning but could be a buying opp IMO.

From the December announcement: "The Board has today requested that the Panel, pursuant to Rule 2.6(c) of the Code, extend the current deadline of 29 December 2011, as referred to above. Discussions in relation to a possible offer for the Company by Mr Claesson are at an early stage, as is the strategic review being undertaken by Deloitte Corporate Finance. In light of the progress that has been made in relation to the possible offer, the Panel has agreed that Mr Claesson must by no later than 5.00 p.m. on 26 January 2012, either announce a firm intention to make an offer for the Company in accordance with Rule 2.7 of the Code or announce that he does not intend to make an offer, in which case the announcement will be treated as a statement to which Rule 2.8 of the Code applies. This deadline will only be extended with the consent of the Panel in accordance with Rule 2.6(c) of the Code."

5pm deadline so could come after hours... In which case tomorrow could see a steep rise or fall? You would have thought they would have announced by now if it definitely wasn't going to happen, so must still be possible. Last minute thing though...

£2.40 would be a fair price based on eps forecasts now that market sentiment has changed.

Good. On;y 27k traded in small trades. I will very pleased if we can get to 200p, although i kmow this isn still disappointing relative to our previous targets.

Well its not taking much to shift it, so 200p with no further news wouldn't be a surprise.
