mrnumpty: Although it is a completely different company , operating in a completely different market , it might be worth looking at Anexo , an insurance provider , which floated last year . Just as with Kape , the shares of Anexo were / are very tightly held ( at the moment , the five significant shareholders ( over 3 % ) hold 87.48 % of Anexo's shares ) . After the floatation , Anexo's shares rose nicely until they were hit at the end of last October , when unhelpful comments about inflation and interest rate policy by the new head of the US Federal Reserve hit stock markets globally . As I commented in my post of 2/4/2019 on the ADVFN chat site , the fact that so few of Anexo's shares were available on the open market would tend to have a magnifying effect on share price movements , both up or down . Fortunately , events proved me right when , just afterwards , Anexo released good figures and the share price recovered abruptly . Kape's website shows that the three significant shareholders hold a similarly dominant percentage of the shares ( 82.29 % ) . Perhaps I'm just an old Numpty , but I suggest / hope that , when Kape reports positive progress , the lack of availability of the shares on the market will have a similar magnifying effect . Do your own research .
igoe104: Arden 7 page note out today, here is the summary. Strategic position and cash underappreciated We reiterate our Buy rating on Kape, noting the 10% share price decline year to date. In our view, the market continues to underappreciate a strong combination of accelerating organic growth into FY19E (+32% vs. 5% FY18A), a large cash position exiting FY18A (US$40m – or 27% of market cap) in the context of a volatile market/geopolitical uncertainties and future M&A optionality.
micha14: The share price has come down because the company made a loss and shrinked revenue, as simple as that it seems
dave2608: I've been speaking to someone who deals with their communications. Apparently they have fielded lots of calls from investors re the share price drop. I was told that the company are aware of it but know nothing to explain the recent fall. A suggestion with words to the effect of was, a few start selling, then a few more join in, people start talking and become suspicious, more join in etc etc and it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.
mrnumpty: Perhaps Investors' Chronicle will enlighten its subscribers with an e-mail later today . Another tip sheet which is a fan of Kape is Small Company Share Watch . SCSW added 10,000 Kape shares to its Growth Portfolio 3 ( GP3 ) at 93.5p on 9/4/2018 . Although the share price has barely moved , at the moment , since then , inclusion in GP3 provides me with some confidence . Having started in August 2015 , GP3 constitutes the highest conviction ideas of SCSW , and currently only holds sixteen shares ( though some will have been sold since inception ) . For reference , GP1 ( 1/11/1994 - 12/7/2001 ) gained 1088.57% , and GP2 ( 13/1/2001 - 28/11/2014 ) gained 1207.29% , though not doubt weaker shares were culled along the way in these portfolios . There will no doubt be commentary in the next SCSW , but it doesn't read subscribers until 6th April .
blackfinance: dround87 - I know the feeling! The share price of my holdings seems utterly divorced from results, it really does not seem to matter what they are, it will go down on results day no matter what.
mrnumpty: According to the Company's website , three holders own 82.42% of the shares of Kape : Unikmind Holdings = 72.77% ; Miton Group = 6.38% ; Legal and General = 3,27% . That leaves a mere 17.58% ( = £ 25.71M at the current market cap of £ 146.27M ) for everyone else , which hopefully also includes directors' holdings and any unreported ( < 3% ) holdings by other institutions . So , with such a small free float , the share price is likely to be subject to more movement than a company with a higher free float . By the way , does anyone have information regarding who Unikmind are , and regarding directors' holdings ?
rimau1: A full-year pre-close trading update confirmed that 2018 cash profits will be slightly above market estimates, up by 25 per cent to $10.4m (£8m), to deliver a similar percentage rise in pre-tax profits to $8.4m. The trading update also revealed that last summer’s acquisition of Intego, a Mac and iOS cybersecurity and malware protection software-as-a-service (SaaS) business, is progressing ahead of management’s expectations. Intego’s purchase price of $16m equated to 11 times its 2017 pre-tax profit of $1.4m, so was sensibly priced and that’s before Kape’s management got to work on ramping up Intego’s user acquisition strategy as it has done so well with the 2017 acquisition of CyberGhost, a provider of secure virtual private networks (VPNs) that securely pass data traffic over public networks. Furthermore, having trebled its customer base to 830,000 over the course of last year, Kape can target market cross-promotion campaigns to try to entice its customers in 160 countries to take more than one of its products. Bearing this in mind, the directors say that the integration of last autumn’s acquisition of Berlin-based ZenMate, a digital privacy company focused on encrypting and securing internet connections and protecting individuals' privacy and digital data through VPNs, is ahead of expectations, too. So, with customer retention rates up from 69 to 74 per cent in the past 12 months, margins improving and Kape set to reap the full benefits of last year’s acquisitions, then expect another step change in profitability in 2019. House broker Shore Capital forecasts 2019 cash profits of $14.3m and pre-tax profits of $12.2m on revenues of $77m. On that basis, expect EPS to rise from 3.7¢ in 2017, to 4.6¢ in 2018 and 6.7¢ in 2019. I would flag up that Kape ended the year with net funds of $40.3m, a sum worth 22p a share, giving it ample firepower to fund future earnings-enhancing bolt-on acquisitions in this high-growth sector. This means that net of cash on the balance sheet, Kape’s shares are priced on a forward PE ratio of 15 for 2019, hardly a punchy rating for a company that is generating organic growth and making sensibly priced acquisitions to scale up its operations and create cross-selling opportunities, too. I feel that another leg up in the share price is warranted and next month’s annual results could be just the catalyst. Buy.
mfhmfh: nice steady rises. hopefully share price can break past this mini-resistance and move on to 120p.
