In my opinion it’s all about growth.

In the early days of any company it’s far easier to grow profits from say £1M to £5M in 3 -5 years.

A huge %

It’s a great deal more difficult to get good growth when your the size of KNOS, more so, when your dependent on your clients also growing at pace.

No doubt this company has been a star within the sector for investors, however the sheer size of the company today, makes future fast growth extremely difficult.

The chart says it all , KNOS has been a fantastic stock to HOLD .



Those looking for the next KNOS might like to research tiny boutique IT consulting outfit Triad Group Plc.

Just last week Triad swept the board at Oscar’s of the industry’s awards.

It’s a micro cap , that I hope can do a KNOS by the decades end, not for traders.

Trading update today.

All appears to be on course, but share price barely budges.

"Despite the uncertain trading environment, our customers continue to maintain their investment in digital projects and trading in the first half has been good. As a result, the Board expects our results for the full year ending 31 March 2024 will be in line with current consensus forecasts*."

* Note: Company compiled range is based on known sell side analyst estimates. The ranges are: Revenue £418.2m - £434.2m and Adjusted PBT £72.6m - £78.1m.

In line with the positive results the price opened positively 3%. The share price rebounded from 1200.00 S/R previously, but the update acted as a catalyst to trade higher. Share price plunged to the next resistance at 1300.00, if it manages to break above 1300.00, it can potentially target next resistance at 1400.00, giving room to get in for a short BUY and as CEO Brendan Mooney said: “The digital transformation market continues to grow in importance for organisations operating in government, in healthcare and in the commercial sector. This importance is translating into continued demand for the work we do for our customers. Despite the economic uncertainty, there is an urgency for our customers about extending existing projects and starting new projects, as they change the ways they deliver essential services to citizens, patients, customers, and employees” shows there is clearly demand for the services company provides which can potentially drive the price higher. KNOS is good to keep in the watchlist for a BUY..... from WealthOracle

As a software developer myself, and an investor in software companies (currently TRD and KNOS) I'm trying to work out what effect Chat GPT (and similar AI tools) are going to have on these businesses.

Make no mistake, what GPT is capable of is jaw dropping. We haven't seen anything like this before. A total game changer (and not just in the software development world!)

GPT 4 can produce code that a good coder would do in a week in a matter of seconds. GPT 4 is over 4 times better than chat GPT 3 which only came out 5 months ago. GPT 5 is already in training mode. The advances in performance will accelerate exponentially.

So simplistically you might think that software companies will be able to do as much with far fewer coders. Which would massively push up margins. However the downside is that software production will become commoditized. With low barriers to entry there will be more competition which will drive down prices.

Any thoughts?

To see what I'm talking about see here...

Being a software company, KNOS can work in any industry segment. This means limitless opportunities.

Just re-reading the HY report we can see that they've moved into Defence (Defence Science & Technology Laboratory DSTL - Artificial Intelligence Delivery Partner), and Policing (Secure Policing HQ - Cloud Migration Partner).

But the news I'm particularly excited about is their concerted move into the Finacial sector...

"In the UK, the commercial sector expenditure on IT is over three times that of the public sector. While this represents significant opportunity, to increase our likelihood of success, we have initially chosen to focus our activity on financial services customers.

Like all large organisations post-pandemic, those within banking and insurance are increasing their levels of investment in digital transformation. This, coupled with our growing references in the sector has driven a rapid increase in activity as we have helped established customers like Concardis and New Ireland and new customers such as IMCO, Danske Bank and Federated Hermes Limited."

These banking / insurance companies tend to have huge legacy IT infrastructures that need constant modernisation. Many opportunities for winning more very large, long term contracts here imo.

From the 01/09/22 Trading Update:

"...As a result of the continued growth of our Workday Services and Workday Products businesses the results will show both businesses as separate divisions in the accounts."

This is highly relevant imo.

As we know, KNOS have been hugely successful with their Workday (NASDAQ:WDAY) services (deployment, integrating, testing etc of customer Workday installations) these generate good revenues, but each roll out is different so probably requires a lot of resources and time.

Workday Products, however, should be much more profitable as they're standalone software products which can be sold over and over. So far, these products have been mainly admin tools such as testing, auditing, mentoring etc.

Now however, KNOS have created a new product: "Employee Document Management" which allows users to create, manage, store and access employee documents, such as contracts, policies and compensation statements, inside Workday.

This is product accessible through WDAY's Extend cloud platform - a bit like the app store where trusted developers can develop 3rd parts Workday apps.

So, this seems to me like a product which a lot of WDAY customers will want to pay for. Furthermore, it shows the direction of travel. WDAY are making a big push with their Extend platform and KNOS, as one of their most respected partners are ideally placed to roll out many more of these app products.

Yes Monty, you got it wrong. The dividend for 22 is planned at 22.2p. The dividend for 21 was 28.2p, BUT the 21 dividend includes special bonus one time dividend of 6.7p. This was granted because the 2020 dividend was cancelled due to fears of covid. However after good performance though the covid times, the board decided to give a special dividend in 21 in lieu of the cancelled 2020 one.
Obviously there is no special bonus dividend this year so this might appear as a cut, but in fact if you substract that 6.7 special dividend last year the figures are: last year dividend - 21.5p, this year dividend 22.2, which is 3.3% UP.

It's all explained in the results. You guys need to understand the data in the context not just look at the raw figures.
