2torrance: Looks like the people who cashed out this am (as I admit I nearly did) will be kicking themselves (as I would be) seeing it has gone up 4%! They may be right but I think the underlying position is strong and it is always the second half that brings home the bacon August wasn't too hot for the share price last year either.
sev22: This is what the company said in the last update. 'As in previous years, a further update will be provided in January 2020.' So it could be Monday, by which time the share price could be nudging £9.00.
mfhmfh: some would speculate some people know more information than others with regards to this company. interesting how the share price fell before the trading update on the 24th of July 2019 and again before the trading update on the 11th December 2019. even more interesting that the share price now seems to be going up before a potential trading update.
samsj: No - I think not but not had a good look. I think if you look at updated forecasts from today or play around with the numbers historically, the PE could be much higher? It can be massively geared- small changes in revenue make bigger changes in earnings and then bigger swings in share price. Just depends on how much faith you have in them getting the revenue. Or if you think the business is of any value to others.
bamboo2: Hi HH, I have added a few more this morning too. gilsey, I did re-read the outlook, and found it useful. Some holders suggested that 2019 would be a year of consolidation, and it looks like they were probably correct. Let's hope we can leave 2019 in an uptrend.
aimingupward2: Sopheon have a firm foothold in a growing area servicing business activity and growth. They have good prospects of continuing growth which is not reflected in the current share price. The lowly p/e of not much over 14 is attractive. There are only 10m shares so it won’t take much buying interest to move it up
mfhmfh: from my experience when a company announces a switch to a SaaS model there's always a short-term fall in profit and over-reaction of the share price. medium-term (not even longer term) the share price recovers and moves to new highs. KNOS is a good example of this. well done to people who bought at under 700 today. All IMHO.
samsj: - Hershey is hardly in itself a game changer. They sign some big ones each year and have had names like PepsiCo for many years. What's great about SPE is the steady growth and growing client list over many years, although only in recent years showing in the numbers and share price. -The average last quarter performance over the last 3yrs has been $6m. Given bumper 4Q last year ($8.2m) market was presumably hoping for a further exceed on revenue. What we may have seen is that some of that 4Q revenue was booked last couple days of Q3 and that hit Q4? The question is how weak was 4th Q? No idea from this statement, which I agree was not necessary or helpful this year, both because of October update and because the market has cottoned on to the "under-promise, over-deliver" strategy with the forecasts. (SPE also seems to be more promotional these days, which might actually be a good sign given the company doesn't need to raise cash...). - 2017 revenue of 28.5m was almost 10% up from expectations of 26m for y/e 2017. Described in the end of January TU simply as "comfortably ahead of expectations". So what is "comfortably in line with expectations" in this early update this year? Could still plausibly be 5% on the updated forecast of 32.5, so about 34m. That would give about 4m to the 4Q which is still a little less than 2015 and 2016 4th quarters, due to some pulled forward into 3rd quarter. This would still give us 16-20% revenue growth. For the short-sighted this is "decelerating" from last year, but stronger than 2017's 11%, which saw share price bowl out for 2017, undecided, until the great 4th Q became evident. - As FinnCap suggest, interesting thing would be to see how this drops to bottom line, also cash position, and any other talk of outlook, dividend etc. - The other change which may have worried people was lack of any forward guidance sentence, but very minimal in first January 2018 statement. Let's see. I hope we get a crisp, clear statement end of January and not one like, e.g. the 2017 AGM statement that sounds like it's trying to bury average news. The long-term trajectory of SPE is I think clear so please just be honest and direct. - I am keeping my eye out for placings and corporate activity this year. By my sums, Barry Mence has £60 million tied up in Sopheon and it will be interesting to see what his plans are after building this company since 1993.
trinko: Finncap target price Sopheon (SPE) : Corp Contract win Key data Share price (p) 1 250.0 Target price (p) 1 295.0 Market cap (£m) 126.7 Enterprise value (£m) 114.5 Sopheon has announced that it is partnering with Hershey, the well known US based confectionery brand, to support digital transformation of Hershey’s product innovation portfolio. Sopheon’s Accolade solution will connect existing and new processes, enabling collaboration, synchronisation, focus and decision making to maximise the benefit of group innovation priorities. The partnership follows on from Sopheon’s experience assisting dozens of food and consumer goods companies in delivering insights and responding to opportunities to continue to compete in an increasingly fast moving and disrupted environment. We look forward to a trading update in the next few weeks as 2019 is expected to build on the momentum established in the past four years, attracting ever more high-profile global brands as customers.

aimingupward2: Sopheon says that it’s “Accolade® solution provides unique, fully-integrated coverage for the entire innovation management and new product development (NPD) lifecycle. For the first time, businesses can access a single source of the truth across strategic innovation planning, roadmapping, idea and concept development, process and project management, portfolio management and resource planning.” But it’s more widely applicable than that. In their trading statement on 29th Jan ‘18, the company said that “An important aspect of 2017 growth was the increased adoption of Accolade as an enterprise platform for areas outside our traditional innovation arena. Licenses sold in 2017 included applications for Accolade as diverse as capital expenditure management, IP management, IT project and portfolio management and enterprise initiative management - each representing extension business beyond innovation. We believe our Accolade platform extension strategy represents a significant growth opportunity, and this will be a key area of investment in 2018. We’ve seen a strong surge in the share price today taking it to an all time high, and it now seems probable that this will continue through December and past the expected trading statement early in January. Even then it will very likely still be on a quite modest forward P/E ratio. All in all, a lot to look forward to and so still a 'buy' opportunity. A big 'buy' opportunity if the share price should come back below £11'
