"Subject to General Meeting, Nasstar will acquire Modrus, a competing provider of end-to-end per user managed services including hosted desktop services and unified communication. The £13m acquisition (£11.7m cash) is funded by a £13.3m placing at 7.5p, and offers further sector specialisation in addition to increased scale, and diversity of the customer base. Additional funds raised will reduce forecast net debt, accelerating Nasstar towards an ungeared balance sheet and continuing opportunities for further consolidation of an attractive market niche."

"Cloud software services provider Nasstar is showing the benefits of its acquisition programme and it is investing in widening the range of sectors where it has a strong market position. Contracted monthly recurring revenues have increased from £942,000 to £1.2m during the year despite the loss of a couple of large customers. Recruitment, legal and financial services are the main sectors where Nasstar has a particularly strong market position..."

Prelims reveal performance in line with January's trading update, delivering adjusted EBITDA of £2.9m (vs £2.9mE) from revenue of £13.8m (vs £13.7mE), and net debt better at £5.1m (£5.5mE). Prospects remain strong, and board confidence is expressed through the maiden dividend, as well as investment to accommodate a deeper management layer and the initiation of an enhanced marketing plan to relaunch a single brand and maximise organic growth: FY16 EBITDA moves from £3.8m to £3.5m, while maiden FY17 forecasts benefit from the investment, delivering 31% adjusted PBT and EPS growth from 13% revenue growth

* The Campaign is specialized among the investing fraternity only. The population as a whole would hardly vote for a ban on shorting...most people have never heard of it, have they?
Whereas, the other Govt epetitions command votes from the *general population..and if you check, NONE are doing better than a handful of votes !
Deramping SHORTERS !
Shorting a rising stock....is much worse when it is done by your resident posters that seemingly are your buddies and convince 'long' holders to give up!
What many pi's fail to grasp is the extent that shorting is taking place. Often we tend to think that the 'shorter' is gone, 'he' is out of the way? You'd be wrong in most cases, for ( he ), the shorter, is often joined by others that keep the stock down !
Some stocks fall after GOOD NEWS!
The main reason for many pi's selling, is they are afraid they'll be left in losses AND because they FEAR shorters !
Consolidating shares often sees the sp fall as the *multi-bagger potential is greatly reduced. Shorters know this and will take full advantage to get 'longs' to give up and sell !
BUT, where does that leave the genuine investor that has put stocks into their pension funds?...holding losses again!
* Once pi's know the stock is being shorted...they'll SELL UP IN THEIR DROVES !
We can't both WIN !
The 'shorts' therefore 'win' their bets, whereas the 'longs' lose the best part of their investment, possibly for some time to come......and just when you thought this couldn't go any lower, THEY'LL SHORT THE STOCK AGAIN !
* Thanks for all your support. We are now heading towards 5,000 votes!
* Investors are saying something? They are voting in their hundreds !
# The big problem with shorting is that THEY (the shorters) WOULD most likely lose most of their money IF they just 'bet' on the price going down without trying to 'help' it down?
'Catch 22' .... No one would know of an RNS to be released that will contain BAD NEWS, if they did and then 'shorted' the stock, then they are guilty of 'insider trading'.
The only sure way to short a stock and WIN is to spread dis-information to defame the company with help from other posters that are in concert with them. To ENSURE that they don't lose the biggest part of their 'short', ironically, then, they must deramp with (seemingly) believable posts.
* When the pro's do it, they simply get the media or well known 'crooked' tipsters, analysts or brokers to do it for them. (say no more).
# The campaign against shorting is for the benefit of the 'cheated' investors that cannot control their investments due to the dirty tricks played out by co-ordinated shorting !
The results will be reviewed by Govt legislators for further action! The FCA will be asked by Davide Serra to conduct an investigation into short selling practices, with the view to either ban short selling, or to be better regulated !

I bought into this company a couple of years ago then sold when nothing much happened. I bought in again early in the year at 16½p and am sitting on a loss. However I have no intention of selling this time as I believe that Cloud Compyting will soon take off and Nasstar shares should begin to move upwards.
I bought some time ago as a speculative buy. So far it has been a bit of a roller coaster with the share price. The share only needs a little buying attention for it to shoot up and then it slides down again. I had hoped that there would be some growth and stability as the Cloud market developed. Are you a patient type?
