There is another holdings RNS out with someone reducing. Not sure this is the reason for the price decline though. A few few small caps have be hit today, so I suspect it's a general market decline. All IMO of course!

Businesswire Aug. 31, 2017, 04:00 AM Aptitude Software (Microgen plc) Acquires RevStream, Pioneering Enterprise Revenue Lifecycle Management Company, to Form the Global Market Leader in Revenue Recognition and Management hTtp://tinyurl.com/y8oubsoz Aptitude Software (Microgen plc), the fastest-rising financial software specialist, today announced the acquisition of RevStream, the market innovator in revenue accounting and management. Aptitude will add RevStream, the cloud-based, enterprise-grade ASC 606 and IFRS 15 revenue recognition solution to its portfolio of record-to-report specialist finance applications. The acquisition provides CFO’s with a partner that can address their many strategies and ambitions in an era when back-office ERP systems don’t support changing business models and the aspirations of financial executives. Over the last fifteen years, the monumental shift to new high-volume business models and forceful changes to accounting rules have impeded CFO’s who want to go beyond the traditional accounting role and deliver rapid, forward-looking information and insight into their businesses. Recent research reports show that CFO’s in all industries are affected. For example, the FSN Future of Finance Function Survey (2016 & 2017) found that 52% of finance teams spend too much time on manual transaction processing and 70% of organizations are yet to make headway in gaining ownership and control of all the data they need for effective business partnering. Accounting for a high-volume of complex products makes delivering financial transparency a weighty burden on finance teams who work nights and weekends to just deliver statutory reporting to stakeholders such as regulators, CEO’s and investors. Added to finance’s workload are new forceful accounting requirements brought on by the Enron scandal and 2008 financial crisis that have changed how companies must account for revenue, financial products and leases. In the case of revenue recognition, public companies must adopt new revenue recognition policies by 1 January 2018 – a change that has been described by one former CFO as the biggest change to accounting in over twenty years. Private companies must adopt these same accounting policies by the beginning of 2019. Unfortunately, with only months to go, only 13% of companies are more than 75% complete in the implementation of the new standard, as per a July 2017 survey from PWC. This means that over the next five years, In lieu of solutions such as those offered by Aptitude Software and RevStream, companies will face: Hugely increased manual workloads to deliver statutory reporting to regulators, investors and management Costly audits and potential litigation for companies that can’t provide evidence of compliance Reduced investment for those that can’t show comparability of earnings to new industry standards Since 2015 financial software specialist Aptitude Software has taken a leadership role in enabling telecommunications operators to address IFRS 15 and ASC 606 revenue recognition requirements. The company’s customer roster includes three of the four largest North American telco’s amongst numerous other leading global operators. When including RevStream, the combined company accounts for almost $1 trillion in revenue. The acquisition of RevStream extends Aptitude’s leadership in revenue recognition and adds to its North American presence (where 50% of Aptitude’s existing H1 2017 revenues derive). Importantly, the move gives Aptitude reach into technology, media and other sectors beyond its traditional footprint in financial services, insurance and telecoms. The RevStream acquisition extends Aptitude winning product portfolio which includes solutions spanning compliance (i.e. IFRS 9, 15, 16 and 17), operational accounting, enterprise revenue lifecycle management, financial data integration and financial calculations. The portfolio provides CFO’s with a clear path to enhance financial control, automation and insight. "Aptitude’s success has traditional come from our ability to help CFO’s rapidly process a very high volume of complex, business event-driven transactions and calculations” says Tom Crawford, Aptitude CEO. "With RevStream, we can offer a broader operational finance cloud platform for revenue management to mid- and large-sized companies at a time when new solutions are so desperately needed.” About Aptitude Software Aptitude Software delivers specialist financial applications to equip Chief Financial Officers (and the finance function) to fulfill their strategies and ambitions.

Acquisition of RevStream Microgen plc ('Microgen') is pleased to announce the acquisition of RevStream Inc. ('RevStream'), a California-based provider of revenue management enterprise software. The acquisition broadens and complements the specialist capabilities within Microgen's Aptitude Software business ('Aptitude') and provides access to RevStream's growing client base in the technology sector. RevStream will be integrated into Aptitude which already has an established office in Boston and a strong North American presence with over 50% of H1 2017 Aptitude revenues generated in the US and Canada. Since 2015 Aptitude has established a market leading position in the telecommunications sector with the Aptitude Revenue Recognition Engine ('ARRE'), an application which enables organisations to address the requirements of IFRS 15 and ASC 606. ARRE has established this strong position as a result of its capability to process very rapidly a very high volume of complex, business event-driven transactions and calculations. The acquisition of RevStream enables Aptitude to offer broader revenue management functionality which augments the specialised capabilities of ARRE. RevStream's growing client base, primarily focussed on the technology sector, complements Aptitude's strong presence within the financial services, insurance and telecommunications sectors and provides cross-selling opportunities for both organisations' products. In addition, RevStream's existing cloud capabilities will be leveraged across Aptitude's new applications where cloud deployment is appropriate.

From the Daily Mail market report IT firm Microgen shot up to an all-time high after reporting ‘exceptional growth’ in its technology designed to make finance bosses’ lives easier. It said revenue from its software used to help with number crunching, forecasting results, and accounting grew 42 per cent to £15m since June last year. As a result, Microgen said financial performance for the whole of 2017 is like to be significantly ahead of expectations. Brokers at Investec reinstated their ‘buy’ rating for the stock and upgraded their price target from 330p to 400p. Shares rose 18.2 per cent, or 57.5p, to 374p. Read more: hTtp://www.thisismoney.co.uk/money/markets/article-4672472/MARKET-REPORT-p I think the all time high was over 10 quid during the dot com bubble around 2000

Suspect this will break through 400p on or before results. As shauney2 says above, this unscheduled RNS means that results will be at least 10% ahead. Enjoying the ride!

A very strong trading update this morning, couldn't resist buying into MCGN at the open. It would seem that the performance of Aptitude Software has surpassed management expectations which has led to today's significantly ahead statements, it is reassuring that they are confident that this strong performance will continue into H2. Nice to come across a company with a strong balance sheet, high margins and an accelerating business performance, chart is strong also with a new breakout this morning.

They can't contain themselves indeed brucey. That was an unscheduled trading update so i guess they were duty bound to inform the market if they are significantly ahead. Significantly should see all the metrics up more than 10% at least including the net cash which was £13.6m at the last count. I like the growth in the Financial Systems revenue which should offset the moderation in ARRE into 2018.
