I can see Sagi selling some shares to institutions to reduce his holding. Everyone a winner then

Sagi has shown that we is always open to a deal given his exit from PTEC. He has his new property empire so I imagine if the price is right he will sell and more importantly he may even be sounding out potential buyers. The limited free float is one reason why SCH really flies with relatively little buying pressure.

Thanks for the update Rivaldo. At £3.40 we are still only trading at about 15 times cash adjusted earnings and we are yet to see the full benefits in the numbers of the switch in focus to tier 1 clients. Safecharge Acquiring is the key to driving organic growth. With Sagi owning 68% I don’t really see us getting taken out rather we will be taking part in the consolidation with bolt-ons. Patience is the key and has been for many years here, take advantage of any dips and lock these away IMO, just about as guaranteed an investment as you can get in these uncertain times.

Excellent news - a new 450p target from Jefferies: Http://citywire.co.uk/money/the-expert-view-cybg-virgin-cineworld-and-indivior/a1130263?ref=citywire-money-latest-news-list#i=6 "Jefferies rates ‘unique’ SafeCharge a ‘buy’ Jefferies has started coverage of payment technology provider SafeCharge (SCH), which it believes will benefit from industry consolidation. Analyst Will Kirkness opened with a ‘buy’ recommendation and target price of 450p on the stock, which added 0.8%, or 2p, to 349p. ‘SafeCharge is a unique asset that is exposed to fast-growing omni-channel payment markets, has near and medium term upside to forecasts and as a mid-sized operator, with strengths in niche markets, stands to benefit from industry consolidation,’ he said. Kirkness said his base case forecasts were 2% higher than consensus based on his optimism of compound annual growth rates in mobile payments of ‘up to 50% depending on region’. He added ‘analysis paints prudent upside at 7% from underlying growth augmented by up to 20% from M&A’."

Yes, be a shame if it is taken out given the potential but if a share remains undervalued it is no surprise.5 would be a nice return but better for it to keep growing and paying dividendsYield is very nice and should get better

Ideally this will get taken over between £4.50 - £5 quid and the cash gets divi out to shareholders.

Good to hear that that dodgy frontrunner naked trader is on board! Wow, I just had a weird vision of a bald naked geezer leading in a cross-country race! Good move today (probably courtesy of the bald naked frontrunner)! Lets hope it is not simply a pireric victory!

Ok give me a min Edit: Tell you what, credit to Safecharge. Many companies wouldn't split this down but they actually completely exclude the merchant debt and cash from their balance sheet. See note 16. So you're absolutely right Rivaldo and igoe, my mistake, looks like that's all theirs. Very interesting. Really ought to deploy some of that unearning capital into an acquisition though multiples are high "The Group holds cash and cash equivalents amounting to US$106,743,000 as at 31 December 2017 (2016: US$90,434,000) on behalf of clients. The amounts represent cash received on transactions processed by the Group which is then paid on to its clients. In substance, the Group's management consider these transactions do not entitle the Group to an asset and have therefore not recorded the resulting asset or liability to clients in its statement of financial position."

Trent - on reflection surely not too much of a TO target as management have over 60% stake. Admittedly everything has its price, but if they don't want to sell - no deal. That could be good for pi's knowing there will be no lowball TO price.

Indeed - they may have "higher quality" revenues I suppose but even so Nice start indeed - about time. I suspect TO activity might be pushing this also - remember it is very illiquid so rises quickly on any big buying

New highs now. Looks like Adven's IPO has concentrated a few minds here - the comparisons make SCH's m/cap look crazily undervalued, on this broad brush basis anyway using historic figures.... Adven m/cap: £11 billion SCH m/cap: £508m Adven revenues: £200m SCH revenues: £112m Adven EBITDA: £90m SCH EBITDA: £34m Plus SCH has that $109m cash pile.

Dutch payments company Adyen opens at €400/share, a pop of 67%, now valued at $16B Ingrid Lunden @ingridlunden / 17 hours ago After raising €1.1 billion in its initial offering and pricing its shares at €240 each last night, Adyen, the Dutch payments company, went public today with a bang. It opened for tradingthis morning on Amsterdam’s Euronext exchange at €400 a share, an impressive jump of 67 percent. The share price closed at €462.50 — over 92 percent up on its price last night —  giving it a market cap of over €13.6 billion, or $16 billion at current exchange rates. It’s gone as high as €503.90 today. The number moved between about €15 billion and €16 billion throughout the day. This all represents a big jump on Adyen’s valuation. In a statement last night announcing its initial offer price of €240 per share, Adyen said the figure implied a market capitalization of €7.1 billion, based on the current number of Shares outstanding. The writing may have been on the wall for its strong performance this morning even then. Adyen said yesterday that the offering was “multiple times oversubscribed…; with strong demand from institutional investors globally.” Adyen is selling between 12 percent and 13.4 percent of its issued and outstanding shares, the latter figure representing if the over-allotment option is exercised in full. Adyen’s strong performance underscores both the strength for tech IPOs at the moment, as well as the strength of Adyen’s payment story specifically. For the year ended December 31, 2017, Adyan generated net revenue of €218 million, a rise of 38 percent over the year before. Perhaps more importantly (when you compare it to other payment startups that have recently gone public, such as Square) it is profitable. Adyen last year had an EBITDA of €99 million, giving it an EBITDA margin of 45.5 percent. Signs are pointing to more growth, too. The company counts fast-growing tech companies like Uber and Netflix among its customers, and earlier this year it picked up a key client in the form of eBay, which is swapping in Adyen instead of spun-out business PayPal as its primary payment provider. Processed volumes on its platform were €108 billion in the period, compared to just €66 billion in 2016, up 63 percent. In addition to established, large players like PayPal, and of course incumbent banks, Adyen competes with outsized startups that are still private, such as Stripe, to power payments and provide other infrastructure to conduct digital transactions. Disruptive startups in the field — who win business with faster and more functional technology, as well as lower fees compared to banks — have been buoyed by a strong rise in e-commerce activity, where some or all of a transaction by a customer is made either online or by mobile. Adyen has been one of the companies riding the wave by helping to reduce the friction between a company choosing to take payments online, and actually being able to do it. That typically can take multiple steps and agreements across numerous countries — Adyen’s pitch is that it essentially handles all of it in the backend as a service for its users. Adyen is not getting any share of the proceeds of this IPO, but it will be using its new position as a public company now to super-charge its growth by using it to leverage working with more and bigger customers. “I’m very proud to be building this company with such a great team,” Pieter van der Does, Adyen’s co-founder, CO and president, said in a statement. “This listing will only help us to continue to do what we are doing now: helping our merchants grow and reshaping the payments industry.” (Van der Does co-founded Adyen with Arnout Schuijff, who is the company’s CTO; the two previously founded and sold a startup, Bibit, to Royal Bank of Scotland, where it became the basis of Worldpay.) As we’ve pointed out before, there is still a long way to go before e-commerce is ubiquitous. Figures from the U.S. Census for the first quarter of 2018 show that e-commerce sales accounted for less than 10 percent of all sales in the U.S., and the U.S. is one of the more mature markets for digital transactions, meaning the opportunity for growth globally is strong. Adyen’s own growth in that more general trend has been very strong. The company last confirmed its valuation publicly back in 2015, when it raised funding from Iconiq, the investment firm that manages funds from Mark Zuckerberg’s family and other high-net-worth tech leaders. Then, it was at a $2.3 billion valuation. Adyen as a startup raised $266 million in outside funding, with other investors including Index Ventures (its largest shareholder with a 16.86 percent holding of the company going into this IPO), Felicis, Temasek and General Atlantic. Possible Reason for today's jump?
