2019 at £40 and eps of 166p thats very conservative, p.e 24 not expensive. The dividends on the way to £40 will be good as well. To me a o brainer, no wonder CEO spent £1.1m on shares on Tuesday. You know I like Kainos as well, Micro and Kainos do some work together I feel Kainos could be the next takeover target, they hold £20m in cash as well and no debt. Of course get HPS out the way first, lol.

NB. There will be a new financial year starting 1 November 2017. At the "old" half year, on 31 October 2017, they will report 6 months' MCRO plus 2 months' HPES. A full "new" half year report is due in January 2018. My original £31 target was based on a first full year combination (by 31 October 2018) giving EPS of $2.30 at a PER of 17.50 at $1.30/GBP. So, as I understand it Monty, your broker was saying $2.17 for 2019; effectively a one year "delay" on my guesstimate? What time-scale is your £40 TP guesstimate?

I will as well, one broker said 2019 earnings per shares $2.17 thats about 166p so at £30 a share p.e 18.These in theory could be £40 a share 2019. Seems a long way off yes, but getting paid handsomely while we get there.

£1.1m spent on shares by the CEO who knows the company better than anyone, that shows faith. Soon back to 2500.

Interesting Shorting hedges closing positions, only one fund left with a short position of 1.23m shares to buy. Surely they do it before 3rd Aug and a must before special of £1.67 1st September. The other hedgie Third Point have closed their short, sensible. Lol, good luck trying to buy 1.23m back, boys.

"An entire sales team and management structure left to join a competitor" Hmmmm.....Most unusual. When did that happen and who was the competitor?

Chronic's assessment July 13: Micro Focus closer to completing HPE deal BUY Tip Update: Buy at 2054p Tip style INCOME Risk rating MEDIUM Timescale MEDIUM TERM Our previous tip We said BUY at 1410 on 04 Feb 2016 Tip performance to date +46 By Jonas Crosland Micro Focus (MCRO) might have acquisition as its middle name because in the last six years it has made 10 acquisitions, and – assuming the year-long process of buying Hewlett Packard’s software business completes in September – revenue will have increased 10 fold since 2011. When the HPE deal goes through, Micro Focus will be one of the world’s largest dedicated software businesses, providing the means for companies to modernise and squeeze value out of their IT infrastructure. The business model throws off a lot of cash, and in the year to April 2017 this rose from $456.1m (£354m) in the previous year to $564.8m; that’s around 102 per cent of adjusted cash earnings. It also means that net debt fell from $1.63bn following the Serena acquisition in May last year to $1.41bn. MCRO:LSE Micro Focus International PLC 1mth Today change 1.95% Price (GBP) 2,089.00 Assuming the HPE deal is completed on time, the group will change its financial year-end to 31 October and will report an 18-month financial period to 31 October 2018. Revenue for the six months to October 2017 is expected to be flat as the HPE acquisition beds in. Much of the year was spent integrating recent acquisitions and improving the product offering, and 185 product releases or significant enhancements were rolled out during the year. Business in North America was disappointing in the third quarter that left year-on-year revenue down by 5.7 per cent. This was not helped by a fall in host connectivity after an entire sales team and management structure left to join a competitor. Revenue was also lower in Asia Pacific and Japan, with strength in Japan and Australia offset by weakness in India and Asia. The product portfolio for the SUSE computer operating system accounted for 22 per cent of group revenue, up from 18 per cent a year earlier, after making two acquisitions, while additional capacity was also created by increasing the headcount. Analysts at Numis Securities are forecasting pre-tax profit for the 18 months to October 2018 of $1.18bn and EPS of 187¢, rising to $1.36bn and 215¢ in 2019. MICRO FOCUS INTERNATIONAL (MCRO) ORD PRICE: 2,054p MARKET VALUE: £4.72bn TOUCH: 2,053-2,057p 12-MONTH HIGH: 2,675p LOW: 1,667p DIVIDEND YIELD: 3.3% PE RATIO: 38 NET ASSET VALUE: 702¢* NET DEBT: 87% Year to Turnover Pre-tax Earnings Dividend 30 Apr ($bn) profit ($m) per share (¢) per share (¢) Year to 30 Apr Turnover ($bn) Pre-tax profit ($m) Earnings per share (¢) Dividend per share (¢) 2013 0.41 152 77.8 40.0 2014 0.43 148 84.8 44.0 2015 0.83 91 58.5 48.4 2016 1.25 195 74.5 66.68 2017 1.38 196 68.9 88.06 % change +10 +1 -8 +32 Ex-div: 03 Aug Payment: 25 Aug *Includes intangible assets of $3.9bn or 1,706¢ per share £1=$1.286 IC View Swallowing the Hewlett Packard software business will take time and will no doubt result in an increase in costs. Revenue is not expected to grow much this year, but should rise significantly thereafter. The shares are well ahead of our buy recommendation (1,410p, 4 Feb 2016), and with so much growth in the pipeline we’re sticking with that. Buy. Last IC View: Buy, 2,488p, 10 May 2017

Shorters closing out now??? They have to deliver the shares at T+2 so anybody who has sold a naked short on results day MUST buy back now to fulfill the contract. How many of our honourable brokers do you think loaned out shares from small PI portfolios without telling? I think ALL profits on short sales (including spread betting) should be taxed at a very high rate to account for the immoral action of selling something that has been borrowed.
