Yes, after seeing your post on CR's thread last week Simon. I work for a top 10 Uni that uses SITS - and hadn't realised that Tribal were the owner. It is so integrated into the core of the Uni that it would be nightmare to replace - hence why I expect recurring revenues are strong. Also, most Uni's are the same (they recruit and then 'manage' students) so that the product will work well at nearly all Uni's. Crack the US and this, as you say, is heading in the FTSE 250.

Yup, good post Simon. I was at UBC last May and they mentioned they were getting SITS. UBC is a great Canadian Uni with a leading worldwide reputation (Top 30 in the world). A great customer to have on their books IMO. Again, I would reiterate, once you starts using SITS you would struggle to stop using it - it becomes an absolute CORE information system.

Good post, simon. It is why I'm invested. As far as I'm concerned, Tribal is a world beater. It will just take time for everyone to realise it. illtud

This was an interesting sentence from the Tech Market View analysis on the y/e Trading Update: "We will be taking a closer look at the higher and further education markets later in the year; several of the big SIs, as well as some software providers, have singled out the sector as a target growth market." TRB are forecast to do PBT c.£16m in y/e 2015, that is without any upgrades, say with a fair wind they do PBT c.£18m, in a red hot tech scene with, maybe, big hungry buyers after the de facto leader in Uni software in the UK & Oz, who's just setting off to conquer North America, what kind of multiple would a buyer have to pay? 10x, 15x, 20x? 10x = £180m = 192p 15x = £270m = 288p 20x = £360m = 384p

I work at a Uni that literally runs on SITS. Once you do that then there is no turning back so I would have thought recurring revenue was good. You also have to buy in consultancy to make changes to the system for localisation.

Tech Market View - 16/1/14: Tribal dances its way to the end of FY13 The positive updates keep coming from Tribal Group, the systems and solutions provider to the education, learning and training markets (see Tribal still on track). This time its trading update ahead of its full year results (due in March) highlights a stronger than expected final quarter (to end December); PBT and EPS will therefore be better than previous expectations. Net debt has also reduced significantly over the twelve months period: from £9.9m to £4.6m. The share price in early trading is up over 7%. In May things had not been looking quite so positive when the company reported a drop in the order book (see Tribal orders drop), so it looks like Tribal cut its cost base in anticipation of a far worse year. It appears that the 'Systems' business has made particularly good progress, with major education management system projects "on track" and a healthy level of opportunities cited in the UK and internationally. Notably, the higher education market is singled out as having a particularly high level of opportunities. We will be taking a closer look at the higher and further education markets later in the year; several of the big SIs, as well as some software providers, have singled out the sector as a target growth market. The Solutions business, meanwhile, performed "as anticipated". In the UK, quality assurance work remains on track and performance improvement activities had a strong end to the year. In May 2013, a drop in the order book was largely blamed on a quiet UK market for 'Solutions'. Overall, the order book is described as "resilient"; though it is down from £168m (at the same time last year) to £129m, mainly due to the maturity of the company's Ofsted inspection contracts. Tribal says that "technology is becoming increasingly pervasive throughout (its) work" – thus validating the Group's decision at the start of 2013 to refocus the Solutions business around offering services founded upon software-based tools.

Really positive Trading Update from Tribal Group plc this morning, profits expected to be up, debt down, full order book, strong demand in international markets for many new sales : " ... the Board now anticipates that adjusted profit before tax and earnings per share for the year ended 31 December 2013 will be better than previous expectations ... ... Tribal has continued to generate good operating cash flow and, combined with the benefit of focussed working capital management, net debt at the end of December 2013 was £4.6m (1 January 2013: £9.9m) ... ... Tribal's order book at 31 December 2013 remains resilient at £129m ... "

Interesting update today. 'adjusted profit before tax and earnings... better than previous expectations' Net debt down to £4.6m at the end of December 2013 from £9.9m at the end of December 2012. At that rate, Tribal should be debt free this year. illtud

Thanks napoleon. I agree with all you've said including it's on the way back up, with the caveat that it still may not go up in a straight line. I think 2014 could be a good year for Tribal shareholders

I'm trying to understand charts and am beginning to see a glimmer of light so I am now able to follow some of the reasoning in fingers' charts above. However, I am doubtful that charts are more than a rough guide to what might happen as they seem to work independently of actual events. For example, if Tribal produces a stormer of a report or TA then shouldn't that over ride any existing trend. I believe that Tribal is likely to be making a good profits with a strong cashflow and that will be reported in the next report. Until that happens, fingers' chart may well be right but things will change afterwards. Just my opinion illtud

Interesting but it doesn't explain a lot about how exactly Tribal would deliver what is needed. The idea of a system that brings in all agencies involved with a child and follows the child throughout childhood is great, of course, because children known to be vulnerable or even 'at risk' can very easily get lost in the present system and end up 'whereabouts unknown'. There used to be a fairly rigorous system for tracking every child's move from school to school. When a child left one school to go to another, the head of the first school had to pass a copy of the pupil's records to the new school who had then to confirm to the previous school that the child had been admitted. In that way, it became known immediately if a child 'dropped out' and enquiries would be made, involving the Local Education Authorities and Social Services. Simple really. Unfortunately, the rules were changed by various governments so that those records were no longer required to be kept. Now, so I am told by a recently retired primary school headteacher, there are estimated to be somewhere in excess of 10,000 children in the UK whose whereabouts are unknown. Estimated because the systems no longer exist within the education system to record them or locate them. I don't know about the health or social services systems. The point is that there is a desperate need for a workable system that encompasses all child agencies. The Tribal system may be it. illtud

I can only agree. It's one of my biggest holdings. I like the whole story of the present set up and have great hopes. I see the share price make good advances in 2014 after the March report and do even better in 2015. In the meantime, I think we will have to wait, although the share price has the capacity to surprise us with sudden little surges for no apparent reason. illtud

Illtud, Thanks. I see TRB as a multi year growth story, a potential FTSE 250 company in the making. They've got all the ingredients; best in class software, global market to aim at, smart bolt-ons, decent balance sheet, management team who are building a reputation for innovation and delivery.

A well thought out, all embracing but highly focused system. Typical of Tribal imho. Given Tribal's experience of developing similar systems for Universities and Colleges and their experience of school inspections, I would expect Synergy to be a very good system. Possibly a world beater like SITS VISION. illtud
