Excellent article about KWS' expansion in Japan and the Far East, and the resulting synergies and cross-selling: Https://venturebeat.com/2019/05/11/keywords-expands-game-development-outsourcing-in-japan/ "Keywords expands game development outsourcing in Japan Dean Takahashi@deantak May 11, 2019 10:25 AM Keywords is becoming a lot more visible as a 6,000-person company for outsourcing game development. It recently added 45 more developers with the acquisition of Tokyo-based Wizcorp,, which, oddly enough, was run by a French man named Guillaume Hansali. The deal was one of 11 acquisitions that added nearly 750 employees in the past year. While other game companies have been cutting back, Keywords has been expanding and bringing the lower costs of outsourcing to more game companies around the world. etc"

That’s a useful and encouraging review, rivaldo. Thank you.

Let's take a look at what's actually been happening over the last month or two as regards investment fund and other activity here. Kames Capital have increased recently to 3.85%. Octopus have increased to 6.01%. Franklin Templeton have also been buying and have turned up with a 5%+ holding. Only Teachers Advisors have reduced their holding slightly recently, and their holding moves up and down anyway (as does Octopus's). Amongst shorts, JP Morgan have been reducing their position. Numeric Investors have also recently reduced their position. GSA have slightly increased their position, but that position is actually less than it was last month and regularly moves up and down so is meaningless in terms of trend. All are fairly small positions anyway given KWS' size. The true overall picture in recent months is therefore actually institutional buying and reduction of pretty small short positions.

Cut my long term holding in half this morning. And sold my trading shares last week in my ISA. Just after last autumn I'm a lot more cautious and want to keep a bit more cash on the side.

I agree. Further investment funds now reducing their holdings at the same time hedge funds increased their short....

I've finally taken profits. I'm sure there's plenty of upside left but with each tick up the shorters increase their positions and the valuations looks a bit further into the future imo dyor ofc.Still a firm favourite and will be back in on the next dip, gla.

Out of interest when would u start buying again. In many ways KWS is a long term play so people are paying over the current odds for something that has a strong future market. I am thinking to hold on to my SIPP holding which is up 22 percent and sell my ISA holding which is a bit smaller but up a similar amount. Failed to take profits last time on the rise up to 2000p and should have top sliced - would have made me a tidy sum.

This has done me well on the rebound but I'm out now. Its price is over extended, director sales, and 3 hedge funds now shorting it. Last time that happened...... Good luck

New interview with the CEO - organic and acquisitive growth on the agenda: Https://www.pcgamesinsider.biz/industry-icon/68900/what-keywords-studios-acquisition-strategy-looks-like-for-the-coming-year/ Extract: "What's the ambition for the coming year? We focus on client satisfaction, execution. We pride ourselves on doing the very best for every project we've got. That's how we run our business on a day-to-day basis. If we can carry on running things that way, I'd be happy. Organic growth is our primary motivation. We like all of our businesses to grow. It's so much nicer to be running a growing business than a static or shrinking one. If we just keep trying to grow, we have the advantage of quite a nice tailwind of serving an industry that is itself growing. There's this heading towards outsourcing as well which plays in our favour. So we should be able to grow at a decent clip. Then on the acquisitions, the year before last we did 11 or 12 acquisitions. We did eight acquisitions in 2018. We'll probably do a similar number, maybe more, in terms of value spend in this year. It's not a target as such - it's just the way that the deal pipeline works."

Agreed, no charting expert but does look to be a chart gap to around 1950.

A close above £15 today would be significant. Far less resistance remains thereafter for a run back towards past highs.

The rns says: “Whilst the business has not been a profit centre under its existing ownership structure, we would expect it to be able to achieve margins at similar levels to Keywords' existing Engineering Service line once we align it with our existing operations and build up its scale.” Given that KWS have only paid less than 40% of turnover, and it’s a growing business, it seems to be a good buy and there is little doubt that it will add value.

Well, it's never turned a profit but the hope is KWS can apply it's proven ways of working to find cost savings as well as removing overlap with its existing services to drive a profit... another good purchase that should add value in the medium term imo dyor ofc.

Another small but perfectly formed acquisition today - this time in Japan, with plenty of potential given its speciality in Japanese mobile gaming and its existing and continuing sales to former parent company Ankama: Https://uk.advfn.com/stock-market/london/keywords-KWS/share-news/Keywords-Studios-PLC-Acquisition/79740083 Extract: "Christopher Kennedy, Regional Managing Director - Asia of Keywords Studios commented: "We are thrilled to welcome Guillaume and the Wizcorp team to join our fast-growing operations in Tokyo where we already employ 300 people. Japan is one of the world's most significant game development hubs and has a long history in this industry. Keywords is excited at the opportunities Wizcorp will bring the Group and its clients in the Japanese market as it becomes the latest member of our global Engineering service line. Wizcorp's HTML5 expertise is a valuable extension to our console, mobile and PC games development skills, which is particularly interesting in the context of Snap's recent launch of its HTML5 based gaming platform. "We look forward to replicating the success of our previous transaction with our long-standing client, Ankama, which saw us acquire their 23 people strong captive player support operation in Manila in March 2016 before building it into a multi-client player support hub that now employs 700 people. We see a strong opportunity to accelerate Wizcorp's growth by building on its existing services for some of Ankama's game development needs and providing it with opportunities to work with Keywords' extensive client base."

Bit off topic but I do think whilst remaining objective we should be proud of international success stories like KWS. Yes it's on AIM but it could easily be a FTSE 250 company if it wanted to be. JD. is another (if very different animal) that I also hold which also reported today and looks to have made a good start at conquering the US. Shame there aren't more of these but it's nice to be on the register for both.
