The management of SOG must be wondering what they have do to receive plaudits from the market. An excellent set of figures and a confident statement in spite of the credit crunch concerns. In relative terms the shares are clearly cheap on a P/E and PEG basis, but with the whole market unloved at the moment patience remains the key for holders.

It's nice they've started giving quarterly updates. With 85% recurring revenues and a PE of 11 for 2008, I'm back in at 95p.

yes, as (nearly) always, they deliver... StatPro Q3 trading in line with hopes, business pipeline strong UPDATE (Updating with outlook, details of new market data service, integration of Initram Data Inc) LONDON (Thomson Financial) - StatPro Group PLC said trading for the nine months to end-September is in line with expectations and significantly ahead of last year, with strong organic revenue growth across the group. It said its new business pipeline remains strong and its sales pipeline has continued to expand as new opportunities arise for the company's enlarged product suite. The AIM-listed software provider said organic revenue growth stood at 19 pct per year in the period, or 21 pct at constant exchange rates. The company expects to benefit from the recent events in the financial markets as this should drive demand for independent evaluated prices of complex assets with analysis of the associated risks. It will launch an "on demand" market data service -- StatPro Data Direct -- at its user convention in the US later this month, the company added. The company also said Initram Data Inc, acquired in July, has been fully integrated with StatPro's existing data business based in Montreal.

Especially the bit that reads: "The Board expects that StatPro should benefit from the recent events in the financial markets, in particular the credit markets, as this should drive demand for independent evaluated prices of complex assets together with analysis of the associated risks."

The rise over the last couple of weeks has been on miniscule volume again. Perhaps just coming back up within a trading range. Major holders seem to be staying with them - and deservedly so.

The recent volatility in financial markets may be positive for their new complex asset valuation products. Fundamentals remain excellent. The share price has now moved back up above the 200 day moving average. Techical indicators are starting to look positive.

Disappointing to see the share price has recently drifted back to c88p on miniscule turnover. As this was the placing price for £10m worth of shares a year ago it seems little progress for shareholders. By all accounts the company is performing well as the Canadian acquisition has integrated smoothly and the latest company statement was pretty positive. As no corporate news is anticipated for the next few months it is not easy to see any obvious catalyst for a direction change in present uncertain markets. Perhaps the mid 80s will again provide support as the charts would seem to suggest.

Geovest, Apparently it works out cheaper for FDP to do this than enter into some kind of rental agreement. I admit, it's slightly unusual and I'd be happier on balance if they didn't do this. However, it also leads to the situation where there are depreciated assets on the balance sheet, worth (from memory) somewhere around 50p a share. Courant

I've seen that, but it seems to be mostly small add-ons to the underlying KX systems which doesn't mitigate the risk by much. Why on earth does a small software company think it's the best use of capital to buy residential property all over the UK and US instead of renting?

Thanks for comments. BTW FDP is developing more proprietary systems, see latest couple of RNSs.

Also, FDP is more of a reseller of KX Systems software plus consulting and integration support. They therefore don't own most of the systems they sell and are reliant on sales commission and consultancy fees. This is a much weaker business model in the longer term.

polzeath While we wait to hear from PP, my view is that although they have the same clients (banks & investment houses) they operate in different field. FDP concentrates on the real time trade execution and data side (i.e. front end) and SOG on analysis and reporting (i.e back end). Even on the data side SOG provides end of day and historical data, they got rid of the real time bits. SOG is the better investment IMO

PP, see First Derivatives (Buy, Closing Price £2.36) Strong peer results Analyst: Philip O'Sullivan Fidessa (organic revenue and earnings growth of 29% yoy and 43% yoy respectively) and Statpro (organic revenue and earnings growth of 79% and 45% respectively) have released strong interim results this morning. Both are peers of First Derivatives in the financial software market. Of relevance to FDP were both of their comments on the outlook for demand. On this, Fidessa noted that "2007 is shaping up to be a landmark year", while "across the buy-side and sell-side business market conditions have remained strong". Statpro said that it aims to "maintain our recent rate of organic growth and our strong cash generation". This demand is being driven by market activity, regulatory change and product innovation. In all, these results give us more comfort in our forecasts for First Derivatives, who we see making continued progress over the remainder of the current financial year (to end-February 2008). Would you agree that FDP is a peer of SOG, operating in similar territory? cheers

Statpro's H1 pretax profit doubles; buys Initram Data for 1.41 mln stg LONDON (Thomson Financial) - StatPro Group PLC saw its first-half pretax profit double versus last year, boosted by a 79 pct rise in sales and said it has acquired Montreal-based Initram Data Inc for total 1.41 mln stg cash. The AIM-listed provider of software to the asset management industry posted a pretax profit of 1.86 mln stg versus 0.82 mln stg last year for the six months ended June 30 and said it is "very confident" of its future prospects. Turnover jumped to 11.32 mln stg from 6.33 mln stg a year ago on a significant increase in professional services revenue and continued strong cash generated from operations, the company said. StatPro Group also proposed an increased interim dividend of 0.45 pence per share against 0.3 pence last year. "We aim to maintain our recent rate of organic growth and our strong cash generation will help us systematically pay down our debt thus strengthening our balance sheet, providing us with the flexibility to respond to any opportunities that may arise. We look forward to the second half of 2007 and beyond," chief executive Justin Wheatley said. The group said FRI Corp, its recently acquired Canadian business, is now fully integrated with StatPro and added that the company is now ready to launch new products starting in September through to January 2008, representing an exciting opportunity to increase sales. Meanwhile, Statpro said of the total 1.41 mln stg cash offer for Initram, 0.99 mln will be payable on signature and the balance over a two-year period, financed from StatPro's existing bank facilities. Initram Data is a small competitor of FRI Corp, the company said. TFN.newsdesk@thomson.com npr/lam/npr/slm

Thanks for that polzeath, I see Statpro as strong presently, due to the cash generation and the increase in reccuring revenues. Things should go from strength to strength for them.

Market jitters boost Statpro Statpro (101p) designs and sells software used by the asset management industry to analyse portfolios. Its products can be used to work out risks in a portfolio, help judgments on asset allocation and monitor performance. It also sells related consultancy services. Interim results on Monday are expected to be strong. The latest recent trading update indicated that recent acquisitions had been integrated successfully, and that the new business pipeline was at record levels. The group also said it is securing more recurring revenues from existing clients, and that its increased scale and broader product range is giving it access to bigger contracts. Anecdotally, the type of products offered by Statpro are in greater demand at the moment due to volatility in the credit markets and the general uncertainty surrounding equities. Given that fund management firms have been making good money for the past few years, they are better placed to invest in technology. Statpro's shares have been strong in recent weeks, bouncing back from a sell-off earlier in the year. But they are still trading on just 13 times forecast earnings. The rest of the software and computer services sector trades on about 20 times earnings. The company's balance sheet is healthy; it is generating cash and pays a small dividend. We first advised readers to look at the company in February 2005, when the shares stood at 36.5p. There should still be mileage left in the shares. Keep buying. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/money/main.jhtml?xml=/money/2007/07/29/cxequity129.xml

Will it bounce down though when results are out as it sometimes does..... Held since 1999, just in profit for the second time, so thinking of bailing before results are out. can't see too much more upside in the short term after recent rise......

Bit more buying, L2 now 5 v 1 @102/106. Results next Monday, so all being well a good week ahead next week, with hopefully a good for media mentions to raise the profile. They are generating lots of cash, and the markets like stocks that do that, at this moment in time.
