bbluesky: Yes, Space looks good. SQS is still a very under-rated company imo and is building up a good head of steam. If we break 650, I think it will go a lot higher as during the share price consolidation, the business has repositioned itself and is in the "sweet spot" as Vos said. If you are looking for a 4th Industrial Revolution stock at a decent valuation: a strong candidate.
bbluesky: Octopus seem very keen. Unusual for an Institution to buy a mere 27,000, which also says to me that there is very little around, so any buying pressure will be positive for the share price.
nfs: The pbt to turnover ratio is low for what is perceived as a software related company Is that what holds back the share price? Lots of hard work needed to claw that profit up

daz: Re the placing and acquisition announced today The recent sideways movement in the share price would suggest that the placing was known about for some time but to place the shares at a premium and to be over subscribed is quite an achievement and indicates a lot of pent up demand from institutions.
sidam: There should be news shortly. The interims are out next week on 6th and management are on a roadshow in UK in following week. Followed by an analyst's site visit to the testing facility in Goerlitz in late September. So plenty of noise. In my view the key in the interims is the amount of progress towards the 2104 target of margins of 10%. With some growth, revenues could get to euro 275m by then (6.5% this year followed by 2 years at 16% the historic organic (ex acquisition)rate) which could equate with EPS in mid 50s in UK pence. If it gets to the target, revenue growth (core growth) will have been significant and one could guess at a PER of 10. That is equivalent to a share price increase of more than a double in 2 1/2 years. That is why I am a holder.
cestnous: Hi Space, Its two pages long and a bit complicated but basically; Cashing in on the banks fear of screwing up after the financial crisis and so being very careful about how their financial software is tested. Co. plans to grow sales to300 million euro by 2014 which is an annual rate of 16.5% and three times faster than the market. UBS bank and Siemens contracts make us suspect that the forecast of Eu10 million pretax (eps of 24.9 cents) for this year and Eu13.3 million (32.9 cents) next year is eminently achievable. Continuing to take market share from smaller rivals as more companies out source their testing. Has established low cost testing centres in India and Egypt as well as S. Africa to do much of the automated testing work. Siemens will encourage a move to USA which has 50% of worlds testing work and SQS currently has almost no sales. Gradually changing to a managed services model but did have problems with two contracts which they under esimated, but this is now resolved. "Most analysts agree that SQS is a fundamentally undervalued company but the current share price rating reflects the two problematic contracts. One analyst reckons they are a takeover target, although with the founders holding high stakes , approaches were resisted in the past.But Van Megan who holds 13% has signalled his intention to stand down in due course and Deidrich Vos will take over as CEO and some suggest that he is more likely to except an offer at that point."
gingerplant: SQS Software Quality Systems I last looked closely at SQS Software Quality Systems (LSE: SQS) a year ago. At the time, the share price was 187p. It's now 157.5p (currently valuing the company at £44m), but it went as high as 243p earlier this year. The German based company is the world's largest independent provider of software testing and quality management services. The value basics look good for a growing techie. The prospective P/E stands at just 5.8, gearing is low at just over 9%, and the half-year results showed turnover up 29% to €95.3m, on which SQS made an underlying pre-tax profit of €2.8m. There's even a c.5% expected yield; a very welcome rarity in tech stocks, and the CEO holds a comforting 11.3% of the shares. The first half was an excellent performance given the company's investment in new staff, training costs and investment in IT infrastructure. SQS said that it hired and fully trained an additional 260 new consultants during the period, resulting in a billable staff net increase of 137. On the downside, SQS wasn't too optimistic about the rest of the year, and that was enough to send the shares down. Such short-term fears may well present long-term opportunity. SQS is waiting for the European economic situation to improve before it invests further. Revenues will be flat, but margins should improve as the company reaps the benefit of its recent investment. I think SQS will reward patient investors.
envirovision: Market seems to be taking a second swipe at some decent companies today and appears to be pricing in a considerable decline in fortunes, a total reversal of growth fairly large shrinkage and with a good degree of conviction. SQS for example, market seems to be expecting a 25% decline in profits next year. I guess if the market then decides to price in no growth the year after or even further decline then the share price would more than half again. Many similar companies which do not have such good cover on debt will shortly be priced for high probability of administration. This is starting to look and feel like early 2009 again.
daz: A little frustrating that the positive IMS isn't being reflected in the share price but hopefully the story will get round eventually.
