Good to see it gapping up on top of recently going ex dividend.

Agreed, the AGM statement could hardly have been more positive.

Is it expensive? In considering an acquisition there are many factors to weigh up. Netcall are not going to buy a profitable company that isn't going anywhere or that is not a strategic fit. You buy ideally before the knee of the j-curve but will often have to pay a premium for this. Market position, potential, industry sector, product quality, calibre of customer base, industry/analyst community views; strategy fit; cultural fit - these are all important considerations in the mix in determining how much it is worth paying for an acquisition. It is apparent to me that this is therefore a very smart acquisition. So many organisations are bottle-necked in IT delivery and that slows down the business. Low-Code is an increasingly important remedy to this and MatsSoft are a key player. If you are selling an increasingly sophisticated product suite into larger organisations, as Netcall do, integrating into the organisations business processes becomes increasingly important and a low-code platform can be a real help. In a small private company acquisition there will also be an opportunity for significant cost take-out with the result going straight to the bottom line. I expect to see some of this over the next 12-24 months. In terms of the customer base, look at MattSoft's wins - these are major organisations. This creates fantastic cross-selling opportunities and also will allow Netcall to incorporate their existing Liberty products into the low-code platform so that their customer engagement functionality becomes available within the low-code environment. This is hugely significant. Re the loan, it's not the cheapest money however it keeps dilution low; leaves the company still with plenty of cash (still growing cash); plenty of headroom for interest cover; no rate-change exposure; no collateral; deferment period on the capital repayment for a good few years by which time the benefits should be coming through. There is much more besides that I could talk about but I don't want to bang on about the many upsides I see here. Read carefully what the company has said - there is a lot in there. So overall, although on first glance the acquisition might appear expensive, I think the risk (and growing companies need to take risks - no risk, no reward) is far outweighed by the growth potential and value that I am confident the Netcall team will extract. They have form in this. I reiterate my view that these are exciting times for Netcall.

This has gone too far too fast on no real news. They've blown a large chunk of their cash balance on a very expensive purchase - 11m of cash and 3.5m shares for a loss-making business. Mr Bang likes the word 'robust' as in 'robust' trading and 'robust' balance sheet. The balance sheet is considerably less 'robust' than it used to be now that it has a 7mn loan note in it with annual interest of 560k - over 30% of last year's profits.

Anthony Mckay, many thanks for the update. Any "Red Meat" to add about the MatsSoft potential? Hopefully today's rise will carry on for the next day or two with Broker updates and analyst blogs.

Attended AGM today. I am convinced the recent acquisition of MatsSoft is highly strategic and will help transform Netcall to a new level. Market will inevitably catch up with the potential, esp given the management team's superb track record. Exciting times.

Decent trading update todsy. Matsoft going well, robust trading and healthy pipeline. That should be enough to get the share price going.

As expected, very positive results demonstrating significant progress. We've seen the share price recover, from the dip previously caused by modest profit-taking, in recent days and I expect this to continue upto at least the mid 60s.

Thats quite a drop to be caused by top slicing. The only other change I can see is the change from 'in line with expectations' at half year to 'broadly in line with expectations' at the TO announcement. Ill keep an eye on it, I think it might be a bargain, but you never can tell.

I'm pleased that Netcall were able to make this promising acquisition which will doubtless nourish the business and sustain the impressive growth without introducing an unmanageable debt to the balance sheet. This is typical of the sensible organic growth strategy that NET have undertaken. The share price should continue to make upward progress with the dip caused by investor top-slice soon being corrected by new entrants.

I was wondering if any Netcall shareholders or potential shareholders have any views on the MatsSoft acquisition? I notice the share price fell sharply on the news but I wonder if this may be due to some investors' disappointment about not receiving any more special dividends as a result of the deal. I also wonder if the share price fall may reflect defensive moves by marketmakers who are concerned that some of the Netcall shares paid to the vendors of MatsSoft may end up being sold. In other words, I am suggesting that the share price fall may be unrelated to the business performance of Netcall. I do not claim any insight into the areas that Netcall and MatsSoft work in but the rationale for the acquisition does sound sensible to me. I also think that Netcall's experienced management and its investor, Livingbridge, are likely to have a good idea of the value of MatSoft and, in my experience, they appear to manage the company quite conservatively so I would hope this is not a rash acquisition, particularly as I have just bought a few shares.
