Last two trades 19 July have a 20p spread. Very strong price considering the large sell trade mid afternoon. Looking forward to the numbers next week.

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.

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.

Interims in 3 weeks. They can hardly contain themselves.

Another positive statement as the growth continues. ''significantly ahead of the Board's expectations for the year.''

I sold a few.Was reluctant but the chart seemed to be rolling over.Will buy back lower if they do drop further before results in July.

From Citywire Citywire AAA-rated small-cap veteran Dan Nickols has ramped up a recent run of purchases in wealth management and accounting software specialist Microgen (MCGN.L) as its shares continue to climb. Nickols increased his holding in the business from 3.8 million to just over five million shares, a stake worth £16.8 million at a share price of 334p, which has risen threefold since early last year. Most of the shares are held in his £1.1 billion Old Mutual UK Smaller Companies fund with the remainder held in his colleague Nick Williamson’s £188 million Smaller Companies Focus funds. In 2016 results Microgen chair Ivan Martin hailed ‘record numbers’ of new contracts signed in the year, driving revenue 35% higher to £43 million, and its operating margin 30% higher at 15%. While consistently rating the business a buy, analysts at Investec have struggled to keep pace with the rally, which has already outstripped a late April price target of 330p.

Didn't realise that Ivan Martin is also at FDM, another of my holdings. A good sign as they're going great guns as well. He obviously knows what he's doing.

Abnormally high volume traded today; whilst its a perfectly good update I didnt think it would drive such a positive response in the share price. Not complaining though.

Yes very nice update today, and could see further buying IMO. Aptitude Software seems to be the jewel in the crown, with contract wins proving the growth story in the US healthcare market.

A positive trading update with the AGM I like the way this company understate and over deliver. Aptitude have won two material contracts.Most companies would have RNSd that. Both divisions have had a strong start to the year. "Aptitude Software has successfully developed its presence in the US healthcare market with two material contracts secured since the start of the year"
