robow: Sopheon (LON:SPE) Share price: 1020p (up 12.3% today, at 14:19) No. shares: 10.1m Market cap: £103.0m Trading update Sopheon plc, the international provider of software and services for complete Enterprise Innovation Management solutions, issues the following trading update. This company is really on a roll! There's another positive update today - here are the key points; ... a number of further transactions have been signed resulting in a record third quarter performance, traditionally our quietest quarter due to the holiday period ... We are therefore delighted to report that revenue visibility has now broken through $30m ... Sales pipeline activity for the balance of the year remains robust. The Board now expects the results for the year to exceed current market expectations2. By revenue visibility, I think they are referring to revenues for the full year to 31 Dec 2018. Plus, presumably whatever additional contracts can be won in Q4. Forecasts - have been increased, to 48.3p adjusted EPS this year, and 55.2p next year. That gives a 2018 PER of 21.1, falling to 18.5 for 2019. That seems a reasonable valuation, given that the company has established a track record of beating forecasts. Therefore, I wouldn't be surprised to see this share break out to new highs in the months ahead. My opinion - I failed to spot the opportunity here, which is a pity. Well done to holders! We have a good update out today, and comments from the house broker that a further beat against (upwardly revised) forecasts could be on the cards. That seems to me a strong reason to hang on to this share, if I held (which I don't unfortunately).
robow: from Shares Keep buying SPE as its share price rall has further to run. Expanding markets and more predictable revenue should take the stock higher. Full page write up.
janeann: hi bamboo I think this share has for some time now lagged behind 'fair value'. Most of 2017 I felt share price never had caught up with events. We then had results and the surge passed 10 quid, and we are in effect back in the doldrums. I don't mind waiting - I may try and add a few on greater weakness but I have a fair few already. And other possible purchasers may be concerned at the weakness and not coming aboard. After all it has risen a long way pretty quickly. j ps the Tesco carmenere I tried last night was very drinkable.
samsj: Really grasping at straws now. For those newer to Sopheon- "the dirs. have just sold 3% of the co." They sold the minimum amount and that held by insiders is very significant and greater than almost all other small companies. Include the Myrtledare and Rivermore holdings. Directors have a history of buying shares in the market and BVI holdings suggest an exit strategy. Placing at premium. "and they even go to the trouble of putting a share price graph in the accounts to arguably show off or ramp the share price even more...)" This is standard practice at SPE for years and many other companies, even when it is not flattering (see SPE's 2014 report or old TRD reports) "turnover in USA in 2017 was identical to 2016. ie. flat as a pancake there...and the dirs are American." Turnover in Europe was fairly flat between 2014 and 2016 too while US grew. It is a small software company with fairly lumpy revenues, an obvious risk and potential for reward (gearing) in this sector. (although now the largest customer has reduced from 20% to 7% revenue).
smithie6: ..while on the otherhand.. the dirs. have just sold 3% of the co. (and they even go to the trouble of putting a share price graph in the accounts to arguably show off or ramp the share price even more...) pros and cons.... we'll see what happens ---- WJC "and whose product demand has taken off over the last 3 years" turnover in USA in 2017 was identical to 2016. ie. flat as a pancake there...and the dirs are American. pros and cons.
wjccghcc: Given the low volume traded, I'd be surprised. It's not an unusual movement for the share price. To summarise, smithie, you think (correct me if I'm wrong) that their accounts are suspect and after 20 years of being listed with similar management, they've suddenly gone off the rails and concocted a sinister plot to dupe investors like Globo. Me, I think it's a receivables spike from the fact that almost all of last year's sales increase occurred in Q4 which wouldn't be paid until H118 and that a company with net cash of $9.5mm and whose product demand has taken off over the last 3 years as companies focus more on innovation probably doesn't need to dupe anyone. Of course fraud can happen in any company but this seems one of the more unlikely cases IMHO.
ramridge: Although SPE's share price has gone up a lot since the start of the year, I think there is more mileage. Today's RNS says contracted business + rec revenues so far amount to $23.5m . Let's look at last year's statement made at this time. The corresponding number was $17.5m. And they continued to make total revenues for FY17 = $28.5m , i.e. +63%. Let's apply only 50% this year. That makes projected revenues for FY18 circa $35m. This is some 20% over current broker forecasts. and would bring a PE down to 20. Broker upgrade is definitely on, IMO
bamboo2: trinko, I do not think there is anything underhand going on here. My understanding is that Sopheon plan to buy back shares in order to build up a bank of shares that can be used to fulfil staff stock options in the future. This will help to support the share price The fall in the share price over the last few days is just profit taking after a good run for the shares. Price has returned to the upper trendline, after outperforming. Perhaps others have a viewpoint?
bamboo2: I think on balance it is good news. Buying back will support the share price. The co receives back at least some of the cost of the share, assuming they are exercised. As part of a pay package, conditional options align the interests of shareholders and staff. Obviously the exercise price is a key factor.
runthejoules: Great Ideas Update in SHARES magazine: HALF YEAR RESULTS continue the solid organic progress at enterprise innovation management software specialist Sopheon (SPE:AIM). Another eight new licences were sold in the latter part of the six month period, taking the total to 28 versus 20 this time last year. Importantly, future revenue expectations are increasingly being de-risked with visibility on $20.3m of income for the full year to 31 December 2017. This is an improvement on the $17.5m when we first flagged this stock idea on 22 June at 330p, with $10.5m of that figure under recurring sales contracts. While the share price may not have moved much since our original article, nothing has changed in terms of the investment case. The shares currently trade on 14 times this year’s anticipated 24p per share of earnings, based on FinnCap forecasts. The broker has stuck to its 620p share price target, implying more than 80% upside on a 12 month view. SHARES SAYS: Keep buying the Shares. Have to say I wish they'd done their job properly and updated us to sell at 500p, but given it's low liquidity, low volume August and small cap £24.5m atm this may move the stock a bit higher. They've also tipped XAF... which I sold out of at breakeven last night (facepalm, should have waited to see what was in it)
