The final buy rec makes complete sense. It is undemanding and clearly they are valuing the "income" which is impressive given current interest rates and the possibility of capital gains underpinned by a significant chance of a TO down the line. Once some Tier 1s sign up it is always easier to get the next ones. This is a crucial period of development and then have not slipped up yet. Steady as she goes

SCH have been tipped as a Buy in the IC: "Tip Update: Buy at 318p There was little to bemoan within SafeCharge’s (SCH) half-year results, with transaction numbers and values up by more than half to 118m and $6.7bn (£5.1bn), respectively. Of these volumes, more than a quarter were processed via SafeCharge’s own acquiring platform – representing $1.8bn, more than double the prior year's. In turn, revenues and gross profits enjoyed strong momentum, although the gross margin declined from 57.3 per cent to 54.8 per cent. The payments group attributed this to the “higher-quality and lower-risk” nature of the overall customer base, as it focuses on winning new clients and entering new markets. Brokerage Shore Capital thinks this will “wash through in due course”. Admittedly, pre-tax profits declined – the result of both higher amortisation and depreciation costs, and currency-related finance expenses. By comparison, a year earlier the company benefited from $1.4m in finance income. But on the bright side, cash conversion – denoting SafeCharge’s ability to convert operating profits into cash – improved from 79 per cent to 82 per cent. While net cash fell from $113 to $86.1m, the group remained debt free and proposed a generous dividend hike. House broker Shore Capital forecasts adjusted pre-tax profit of $29.6m and EPS of 17.1¢ for 2018 (from $29.2m and 17.8¢ in 2017). IC View Encouragingly, SafeCharge won various higher-quality 'tier 1’ customers during the respective six months, including Uber competitor Gett. And it has gone some way to prepare for Brexit – obtaining authorisation as a Payments Institution from the UK’s Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). The shares trade at 19 times consensus forecast earnings, in line with their five-year historical average. However, we think that's an undemanding rating given the transaction impetus and income on offer. Buy."

Could not resist. Yield is very nice given bank account numbers and safety increasing plus TO chance is still pretty much inevitable at some point in the future (or they start buying or reversing TO someone else). Valuation still too low here given potential and free cash flow

It is a nice yield to get given risks are being reduced as quality of the estate increases. Hmmmm

Cheers for that rivaldo - some uplift. If they increase the final divi by 15% too then it would make the yield 4.7% by my calcs which would be very nice.

Excellent - Barclays Capital have raised their target price significantly to 420p (from 335p) and say Buy: Http://investing.thisismoney.co.uk/broker-views/ TEB, the forecast divi for this year was previously 13.12p, but that might have increased now following the whacking great increase in H1. So the yield is likely to be at least 4% at the current price.

The respected Techmarketview like the results: Http://www.techmarketview.com/ukhotviews/archive/2018/09/13/safecharge-strengthens "Thursday 13 September 2018 SafeCharge strengthens Half year results out today from AIM-listed SafeCharge (a provider of payment processing services, technology and risk management services for online and mobile businesses) show the firm building on the solid performance delivered in FY 2017 (see here). Revenue for the six months ended 30th June grew by 26% yoy to $66.8m. Gross profit increased by 20% reaching £33.6m and adjusted EBITDA was $18m was up 15%. Margins eased back from 29.4% to 27% as the company continued to invest in not only its infrastructure and processing technologies, but also strengthening is sales team. On the operational front, processed volume increased by 59% to $6.7b with the value of transactions processed through its own acquiring platform growing from 19% to 27% over the same period last year. H118 also saw the launch of a number of new customers including the global ride sharing company Gett, the online retail platform The Level Group and the online ecommerce platform Global-e. SafeCharge senior management painted an upbeat picture of the outlook for the remainder of 2018 and indicated that full revenue should reach the top-end of market expectations of around $130m. On the current business trajectory, sales of this level would seem eminently achievable."

Problem is margins are dropping as they try to diversify away from gaming. Seems a bit like they're running to stand still.

Solid results, and an excellent outlook: "The Group has enjoyed a good start to the second half of 2018, benefiting from continued growth from our existing customers and the launch of new clients. The Board remains confident that the outcome for the year will be in line with market expectations, with revenue at the top-end of market expectations. The Directors look forward with confidence to the rest of 2018 and beyond." Great 15% increase in the dividend too, with an 8.86 interim divi. The $18.5m additional investment in Nayax explains the cash pile moving to $86m now. I note that SCH are still looking for more acquisitions.

Haven't looked at these for a while, recent drop is disappointing - where did those £15m go? ON Nayax and dividends? If so it's of no concern. This weakness may attract a buyer. Safest to stay in for now I think. What does losing the Non Exec Chair mean? https://www.investegate.co.uk/safecharge-int-grp--sch-/rns/directorate-change/201809130701026174A/ - Lost

Worry? That's the end game here, upwards of 400p IMHO. The share structure dictates that it won't be an opportunistic takeover.

MM's trying to accumulate stock before tomorrow? With words like 'robust' and 'strong' you would think SCH were trying to give us an indication of how current trading is going. I find if there are any leaks it is picked up in the share price from aprox 1.30-2.00pm the day before any TU. GLA.

What's changed in 8 weeks since they said this? "With robust current trading and strong sales pipeline, the Board remains confident that the outcome for the year will be in line with market expectations."
