The fall in price was a result of FY2013 earnings not meeting expectations.
On the options front, nothing much to note. (Transcript)

The comment made by company in their transcripts is that the dividend of 20c would be evaluated. Hence past dividends are not guaranteed.

However, if the quarterly dividend of 4 x 20c at current price holds, the yield is 13.8%, noted that the dividend payout ratio is some 369%.

Worth noting that the company has little/no debt.

On the business front, it looks pretty niche - if it holds the moat.

An update is the cessation of marketing of products by financial institution clients and to a lesser extent by select subscriber portfolio cancellations by certain large financial institution clients.

They have ceased subsidiary Intersection Business Intelligence Services - Zumetrics

They are launching a subscription based biz for pets. VOYCE to become a unique and leading pet health technology platform on a worldwide basis, for both consumers and medical practitioners. Its to link pet-owner-vet and send data wirelessly to monitor the pet health.

Personally, i think it can be transferred to humans too.
