Experts saying £1.22 sterling now that would be nice for our future dividends.

It does seem cheap monty... Kevin has promised 15-20% returns per annum (quote from latest results): "Micro Focus sets out to deliver consistent long-term shareholder returns of between 15% and 20% per annum. The board is confident that medium-term low single digit revenue growth, industry leading margins and strong cash conversion will ensure that Micro Focus can deliver on that strategy. These returns can be further enhanced by the appropriate deployment of capital in value enhancing acquisitions." Even with "low single digit revenue growth,..." I think we are using 16 for the recent valuation discussion if I recall correctly. EDIT: Nope, I am wrong. I was using 17 giving a USD forecast share price of $39 which, at $1.30/GBP makes the Sterling share price £30 post completion but not factoring in the RoC. Looks like Sterling may be weak come September; currently 1.2885 going on 1.29.

All the forecasts are for Micro to be on a p.e 14. Seems cheap for the UK's biggest software company, after 1st Sept.

Thanks nhb001... "new deals in an industry ripe for consolidation." I hope our Kevin keeps a "tight" grip on this deal-making and keeps delivering cash!

With this new CEO he will double the shareprice of Micro Focus in 3 years. Getting paid out in big dividends on the way.

Losses; haven't received anything from my broker so assume, as monty says, it's all automatic. But broker will obviously inform of the outcome and your new amount of shares etc. Best,
