financeguru: yes I have received my divi (HL) and I agree with the last post... so I have sold out to the market about 10 mins ago. not taking the risk that the deal falls apart. Good luck all
epo001: Wasn't a divi meant to be paid on Friday? Haven't seen mine in iWeb yet. Buyout price 583p, current selling price about 580.4p. As much currency fluctuations as anything from now. News feed suggests little likelihood of a competing offer so $7.40 it is and I'm quite happy with that.
epo001: Is this likely to be affected when US markets open? And why is dividend in USD anyway?
llama1978: Results out. Financial highlights · Total group revenue up 11% to $711 million (an increase of 12% at constant currency) - Strong growth in subscription revenue,(3) up 16% year-on-year (an increase of 17% at constant currency) · Billings(4) flat YOY at constant currency, reflecting a challenging YOY compare - Group net renewal rate of 124%, compared to 140% in FY18 which reflected elevated levels of cross-sell - Total billings were affected by a mix shift, with stronger growth in smaller customers particularly driven by managed service provider ("MSP") monthly billings, and a modest reduction in the number of larger transactions compared to the prior-year period - Weaker Network hardware billings as customers extended refresh cycles - Total subscription renewal base now exceeds $1.2 billion, with the renewal base for FY20 up by 14% at actual rates (19% at constant currency), representing an increase of $55 million to $436 million - Strong growth in net new term customer additions to over 335,000 total customers, from 300,000 in FY18; now in excess of 382,000 when including MSP customers - 119% growth in MSP billings(5) to $19 million, with ARR(6) now at $27 million · Continued strong demand for our next generation ("next-gen") solutions - Next-gen business, including Sophos Central and XG Firewall, grew 30% at constant currency to $340 million, and now represents 47% of billings - Within next-gen business, Sophos Central billings up 23% to $228 million, off a strong compare · Step change improvement in adjusted operating profit(3) - Adjusted operating profit increased by 87% to $109 million, from $58 million in FY18; driven by revenue growth and operating leverage, as well as a one-off benefit from the reduction in variable performance-related pay in the period - Cash EBITDA(7) declined by 16% from $199 million to $168 million as we continue to invest for growth · Profit before taxation increased to $54 million, from a loss before taxation of $(41) million in FY18 · Net cash flow from operating activities of $143 million broadly unchanged year-on-year with close management of working capital and after lower exceptional items · Final dividend of 3.7 cents per share, an increase of 6% over the prior year - Total dividend for the year of 5.2 cents, an increase of 6%
r9505571: Are you just talking about Soph or generally buying on bad news and selling on recovery?
fuji99: Borg - I personally think the update is not as dramatic as translated by today drop. Soph has always recovered because any excuse is taken to justify a battering. I also bought today a few thousands at and under £3. I will keep half with my older holding untouched for the full recovery and any possible takeover bid (we never know) and will start taking some profit from £4 with the other half.
fuji99: I cannot find any negative news at all - Even on the sector. So IMO perhaps these drops are the best opportunity to top up or buy first time SOPH shares. The more we move forward in time, the more cyber-crime will increase exponentially. As financial transactions and competition increase, data and money theft will increase as this is now becoming more and more a "lucrative business" for all type of criminals. The share price is now where it was roughly 18 months ago. So my plan is to see it hit £5 before taking initial profit then leave the rest to run as cyber-protection demand will increase impacting on SOPH numbers. This is also a good provision in case, just in case, SOPH is taken over which could be a logical outcome as most UK technology companies were snapped up (from ARM, Autonomy, Logica to London Bridge etc.). This is my 2019 plan for SOPH !
gorilla36: Really guys, "What is going here".......look at the rest of the market, huge falls, clearly not SOPH specific. You cannot just look at SOPH in isolation!

3rd eye: SOPH Sophos.....Hargreaves Lansdown tip 4 of 5 for the top 2018...... Investment idea #4 Sophos Group - benefit from the cyber threat A string of high-profile hacks mean the consequences of not investing in cyber security are all too evident. Perhaps no surprise then, that companies are scrambling to shore up their cyber defences. Sophos Group, a company providing software to protect small and medium-sized businesses, should benefit from this. The group uses a network of over 30,000 independent partners to sell and distribute its products. Over 100m users in 150 countries now rely on it for IT security and Sophos says the market is worth in the region of £40bn, and growing quickly. It is the only company to offer a high standard of both network and end user protection. This means customers benefit from a joined up service under a centralised system. Contracts run for up to five years, retention rates are impressive and last year Sophos generated an average of 29% more business from contracts up for renewal. At present, the company is focused on investing in this opportunity rather than paying dividends, meaning the prospective yield is just 0.8%. With impressive growth, Sophos's potential hasn't gone unnoticed by the market though. The shares have enjoyed a strong run recently, and trade on a premium valuation of 85 times expected earnings. We’re not put off by the high rating, but it certainly adds a layer of risk. If the company fails to deliver on the market’s high expectations, the share price could suffer. Part of the reason the rating is so high is that accounting convention means Sophos's near-term earnings look artificially low. The costs of winning a contract are accounted for up-front, but the revenues are spread over the life of the deal. For example, the group generated $133m of free cash flow last year, compared to adjusted profits of $38m. We often look at a company and say profits look great, but where is the cash? With Sophos, in the short-term at least, it's the other way round. Given the choice, this is how we'd like it. After all, it's not without justification they say cash is king.
