Thank you for that Robin. I found his comments very instructive. He clearly has some cash generative "business perspective" investments in that fund.

Quite. Looking at the RNS it clearly says it's not due to an acquisition or disposal of voting rights but purely due to the placing: An acquisition or disposal of qualifying financial instruments which may result in the acquisition of shares already issued to which voting rights are attached N/a An acquisition or disposal of instruments with similar economic effect to qualifying financial instruments N/a An event changing the breakdown of voting rights N/a Other (please specify): Private placing has occurred

The RNS is for RBC Trustees (Guernsey) Limited. This must be part of Andrew Brode's personal holding which was around 39% in total and will now have reduced due to the dilution of the Placing, in which he presumably did not participate.

So RBC had a 30% stake and they have reduce - the question now is by how much they will reduce by...

Point taken to an extent - the trades at 425 need to be stripped out to get a true feel for the volume there has been since the placing. I'm not sure I have the heart to do this when lv2 is showing me a solid order book anyway. Whilst I know every buy has a sell(!) clearly if there are institutions who have bought at 425 for a quick turn a decent volume would help to shift such sellers quickly and would be a good sign.

Volume figure are not real New shares start today Previous volume seems to be connected with new listing, all the volume is matched buy/sell That kind of real volume would have sent the share price rocketing It will come

I'm liking the volume over the past couple of days - IMO with over 17m traded any potential for overhang looks to be clearing quickly. There could be a bounce in short order if it continues.

FWIW Numis have raised their price target to 490 from 430 and maintained their 'hold' recommendation.

That´s very harsh. As previously stated the approximate placing price will have been determined some time ago. The company cannot change that price just because there was a run-up yesterday. If you look at the placing price in the context of the average price over the last 30 days it a premium of 2.5% to the 30 day volume weighted average price up to and including 17 October 2017 of 414.6p.

Agree jeffian, management have a proven track record that should be the envy of most on AIM. The price rise in recent days is not their fault and I suspect the leak will not have come from RWS's end. Brode made an acquisition at LTG recently after a reported nine months of negotiation, and there wasn't a sniff of a move in the share price in the days leading up to the announcement.. It is this company's modus operandi, to grow by selective (large) acquisitions and they have all come up trumps for investors thus far. This to me looks another superb deal. The one disappointment would be the non-invitation for PIs, but if you go to a supermarket there are always "bulk buy" offers, and I guess that's why institutions get priority, though it's a shame in this case. No reason i can see for investors with a long term view to sell at this level, I'm sure returns will continue to grow superbly. Cracking business and as the numbers new posters have come up with, set to remain so. And don't forget the existing businesses continue to increase profits.

why would people buy on a leak when there is a pending financing event are they mad?

That's harsh, ramridge, and to my mind a little unreasonable. Quality of management and sustained long term performance to the benefit of shareholders, including a progressive dividend policy, is the reason I have held long term and increased my holding during that period. It's only a "deep discounted" placing in the light of the spike, possibly caused by a leak(?), of the last few days. "The Placing Price represents a discount of 21.1% to the closing price of 539.0p on 17 October 2017 and a premium of 2.5% to the 30 day volume weighted average price up to and including 17 October 2017 of 414.6p. If this deal had been announced 2 weeks ago, you'd have been well pleased!

The manner of this placing and the deep discount offered to instis has left a bad taste in my mouth. They don't really give a toss about the likes of you and me. As soon as I have made a modest gain, my holding will be sold. There are more decent companies and more decent management I'd like to deal with.

I agree with Alphabeta 1. no question - the deal leaked hence the price surge y'day 2. I'm also hacked off I had to pay over £4.50 to avoid dilution. This is a stock that has been well supported over the years by private investors. 3. On a more positive note, the placing and acquisition may have drawn in new institutions (and new funds in existing institutions) who otherwise would have been put off by a lower mkt cap, less liquid share (but I should still be allowed to buy at the same price!) 4. Clearly the deal is highly earnings enhancing so could support a higher share price (hence the move y'day) 5. The purchase price isn't super cheap but with a 3 yr CAGR of 26% this is a high growth company and the combined entity should be very cash generative, supporting the increased debt. On balance, I'm pleased that this will support a share price that was starting to look toppy over £5 and longer term this should help extend RWS's exceptional record of profit and dividend growth since flotation.

Thanks Ramridge - pleased to see the EV / EBITDA calculations are favourable too. With regards to comments surrounding the placing I do confess to find placings a bit annoying. SNN did a nice thing last year where people got to apply for additional shares on favourable terms and it was open to everyone, here I've had to buy at around a £4.56 average whereas institutions have been able to get over 30p off. This doesn't feel right to me.

Here´s a list of some of Monrovia´s customers: Adobe,F Secure, Microsoft, Micro Focus, Oracle, Sologic, Tektronix, Toshiba... They say that they also work with some of the hottest Fortune 1000 software companies and hardware manufacturers — but they have promised not to say who they are, so they don’t. (Think big. No, bigger. Yeah, them.) A bit more digging reveals that IBM and Novell are customers as are 5 out of the top 8 Fortune 1000 computer software companies and 4 out of the top 7 Fortune 1000 computer hardware manufacturers.
