...And at some point, they'll likely upgrade to 2,000p. Then 2,500p. Then 3,000 etc etc.

Point being that (assuming the world doesn't end) then big companies' reliance on complex IT systems needing more and more bespoke software development will only keep increasing. And KNOS are increasingly serving those needs.

A true Buy and hold forever stock imo.

Kainos Group plc posted its HY report this morning. Revenue was up 26% to £179.8m, adjusted PBT was up 16% to £34.0m. Period-end cash was up to £97.1 million. The business generated very strong international growth, up 53% to £61.0 million and continues to transition to a global business with over 1/3 revenues now generated internationally. The team has grown to 2,920 people an increase of 20% from 2,438 in H1 22. The share price is moving back higher through H2 with the wider market. The Group is also high quality with solid balance sheet. Valuation looks a little unhelpful with forward PE ratio at 32.6x and in the bottom quartile for the Software & IT Services market. But the share has traded on multiples much higher than this over the past 5 years. BUY....

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.

"Belfast IT firm Kainos to float on London Stock Exchange

By Clodagh Rice
Business Reporter, BBC News NI

7 July 2015

Belfast-based IT firm Kainos is set to float on the London Stock Exchange.

The initial public offering on Friday is set to raise £52m in shares, and values the company at £161m.

Kainos is headquartered in Belfast and has approximately 730 staff across its seven offices.

It was founded in April 1986 as a joint venture between ICL and QUBIS Ltd. Kainos reported profit before tax of £11.8 million last year.

The firm's floatation is being supported by the bank Investec.

The flotation will make it one of three publicly listed companies in Northern Ireland, along with First Derivatives in Newry and UTV.

Kainos's chief executive Brendan Mooney said the company had been "delighted" by the response to the initial public offering.

"The task for us now is simple - to maintain our growth trajectory," he added.

"We have a clearly defined strategy in place to see that happen and are looking forward to life as a listed company."

Law firm Pinsent Masons aided Kainos with the process.

Paul McBride, the head of its Belfast office, said that although the number of listed companies in Northern Ireland was small, there is "potential fit for many more firms to access investment via the markets"."

Rockpool Acquisitions (ROC) is a main-listed cash shell, which may be of interest to investors seeking other Northern Ireland investments to KNOS:-

"A listed acquisition vehicle seeking opportunities in Northern Ireland.

Northern Ireland has a good availability of high quality, often internationally-focused, companies. Despite having an estimated 70,000 registered businesses, there are only two other publicly-listed companies predominantly based in Northern Ireland and Rockpool believes that more Northern Ireland businesses could benefit from the ability to tap into deeper pools of capital which access to the public markets provides.

With extensive knowledge and experience of the Northern Ireland market, the directors are seeking to identify and acquire a highly ambitious, Northern Ireland-based company that is focused on significant growth, and provide it with that access, helping that company meet its aspirations and full potential. Target companies will have a valuation of up to £20m."


Rockpool Acquisitions (ROC) 4.75p Market cap. £604K.;symbol=L%5EROC

ROC has about £950K. cash, and extremely low cashburn.

ROC's large discount at the moment to its cash, despite this extremely low cashburn, looks like a temporary discrepancy - and one that is gradually being addressed by ROC's share price rise, as the market wakes up to the opportunity.

My money is on tiny TRD ( Triad Group Plc ), to outperform by a massive amount within this sector.

PE half the sector average and can grow 100% , 75% , 50% over the next 3 years in my opinion.

25% of the share price is cash

Premium listed

Staff numbers doubled over the last 18 months

Most of all the U.K. government is pushing SME”S to win 33% of all U.K. govt contracts .

TRD are one of just 25 companies to win both lot 1 and lot 2 on framework agreement RM6263.

£4BN spend over the next two years.

To put in prospective KAINOS are also one of the 25 but are at a large disadvantage not being an SME.

Given their recent trading update, which I’ve cut and pasted below, I think this share price write down is, in my view, well overdone…̷0;I’m expecting large bounce back when they release their results.

Kainos Group plc

("Kainos" or "the Company")

Trading Update

Kainos Group plc (KNOS), a leading IT provider, operating across two specialist business areas, Digital Services and its Workday Practice, today issues a trading update for the year ended 31 March 2022.

Trading in the period continued to be very strong across both business areas as new and existing clients maintained or increased their levels of investment in digital solutions. As a result, for the full year ending 31 March 2022, the Board expects revenue and adjusted profit to be in line with current consensus forecasts.

Against a backdrop of strong market demand in the UK, our experienced Digital Services teams continue to deliver major transformation programmes to new and existing clients across the Public, Commercial and Healthcare sectors. Our international engagements continue to grow in scale, with positive progress in both Europe and Canada.

In the fast-growing Workday services market, our Workday Practice continues to benefit from our well-established global presence. This has been enhanced through the year with the expertise of our new colleagues who joined via the acquisitions of Cloudator (55 people, Europe), Une Consulting (42 people, Argentina), Blackline Group (50 people, USA) and Planalyse (6 people, Netherlands).

Our Smart Product Suite for Workday has maintained its very strong growth trajectory. Smart Test, our automated testing platform for Workday, continues to expand its international client base, signing a record number of new clients during the year. Smart Audit, launched in August 2021, has already established a strong cohort of customers, from our existing client base as well as securing new clients.

Our performance has been underpinned by our long-term customer relationships, and we remain extremely grateful to our customers for the trust that they have placed in Kainos to help them deliver their ambitious digital projects.

Our success is generated by our people, who continue to excel in delivering high-impact solutions to our customers. Despite the increased global demand for digital talent, we continue to retain, develop and attract high quality people; we now have 2,692 colleagues based in over twenty countries (31 March 2021: 2,024 people), an increase of 33% on the prior year.

Looking ahead, our robust pipeline, strong balance sheet and significant contracted backlog underpin our confidence in our outlook. As a result, we believe that we are well-positioned for further growth and remain confident in our strategy.

The announcement of our results for the full year ended 31 March 2022 will be
