Outsourcery (OUT) tech stock that could be takeover target, That would make the shares, at 16p, a potential 35-bagger.

Kendo..Hmmm. The matter was heard on 25th August and the result is not quite as black and white as you infer. The judge threw out the financial agreement reached between HP and the shareholder's lawyers which encouraged them to go direct against HP. It seems that the judge wants the case in two parts. Firstly governance aspects for HP when undertaking a takeover and secondly the question of any wrongdoing on the part of AU. It certainly puts the HP board back on the hook but in no way lets AU off the hook. In fact the lawyer acting for major shareholders was highly critical of what he saw as criminality on the part of the AU board. This looks set to run and run.

first thing on a Monday morning and all you can think of is boys bottoms! You've got it bad kenco Is this new or have you alweays had the problem? Might explain why you are such a lonely character that you have to make up your own friends [do you still dress as a women when posting as quil?] Sends a shudder through me. What lies are you going for today? must be some new rumour of a big predator - you've only got Primark left as a potential takeover predator as you've been 100% wrong on every other company you've named.

I think it's more likely blinkx are buying another mobile company. Demand side. You can't rule a takeover out at this price though. Think of the technology and years of r & d blinkx have under the bonnet?
Leecoyote, if that is true, then a price above 300p would get my attention. However, anything less and existing shareholders would need answers as to whether the shareprice was manipulated, in such a short period of time and so obviously, to allow for a hostile takeover. A low offer would open the bidder up for scrutiny and tarnish its name. Furthermore, a shareholder must make an offer when its shareholding, including that of parties acting in concert (a "concert party"), reaches 30% of the target. Again, hopefully, most of the shares found safe hands on the 2nd-3rd July.

Hopping back to the Burst gallery for a moment, I noticed some of the descriptions for ads include IAB: "An IAB Mobile Rising Star, the Pull starts as a teaser banner anchored to the top or bottom of the mobile website that vertically expands to a full screen takeover with a pull of a finger." It looks as though the new IAB standards are now being integrated.

No share buy back, no takeover talk (other than the usual muppets trying to convince themselves), no news anymore just a stale sp and MM's still trying to shift all the Blackrock stock they got tucked up with but without any serious buyers around.What a disaster blnx has been and still nobody has heard of or uses the thing- if it wasn't for the adware blnx wouldn't have a business model.

cant believe maestro's takeover rumour post has been ticked up next door. that just gauges the desperation of some holders around here. maestro obviously didn't see the latest rns (before submitting his fantasy post) declaring oppenheimer are reducing and obviously following blackrocks exit strategy.
Good movement upward
Only 5% to confirm a takeover rumour. I would want to see more than that still a nice try!
heard takeover rumour tonight...see what happens monday
Rhythm done 10m for 2014. Dec to March. Don't know if they had some other mobile sales. ( as per the results presentation.) Last yr Rythm done 25m as per the RNS on takeover.

BARKBOO they are looking at 3 copmanys week going by what BM said last year of we have looked at well over 100 this year So the last takeover was on the 06/05/2014 LYFE Mobile so going by if they look at 3 a week they should of looked at over 45+ by now this is a land grab sometimes you have to pay over the odds
05-08-2014
Not really the thread to have this discussion barkboo, but I don't like non-substantive ramping (e.g. endlessly suggesting a takeover is imminent, suggesting a few extra twitter followers means a step-change in the business, suggesting we may be about to move to a "better" exchange). I am very happy to see strong positive arguments for the share price going up - I have tried to argue several times here that I see blinkx as massively undervalued purely on the basis of cash + Rhythm value being in the region of 30p/share (IMO). I have also argued why I think revenues may have troughed around the time of the TU (correlation with Comscore reach/uniques, evidence from NBC and Publicis of a general slowdown in US advertising spend in 2Q, topitup's theory that this equated to advertisers focusing elsewhere during world cup). So positive is good (IMO), so long as it is based on reasonable arguments.

Apart from your constant negativity, Leluot3, I would agree that we now need to hear more from the board. There defences were found lacking when dealing with this bear-attack, however they have secured compliancy for all BUs and have been going about retaining customers. I think that was the most pressing concern. However, now we need to see some offensive moves. I'm still of the opinion that a BuyBack is a good start as these low prices, but I know many also disagree. Furthermore, it maybe the case that a Takeover is in the offing and so a BuyBack is not possible.

one Director has bought £85k at around 34p....I'm sure having already filled his boots, he'd be happy with a 50p takeover...
08-07-2014
My input is blinx now ripe for takeover at 75p a share.
From my point of view and from someone that has a very low average, I don't want a takeover at 75p....that would just be a crazy price for the technology/company....and I'm sure a lot of others would think the same. It could be the case that there is only one company that want us....and that being Invoke....and if this is the case, they are likely to get it and a much reduced value....and the 75p would probably be the maximum they would pay based on the current share price.
I reckon a takeover will be based on 2 times revenue for 2015 which equates to a price of approx. 75p
No MBO, but i believe we are sitting ducks to stakebuilding/takeover
If it is a takeover then blnx have been complicit so a MBO would be the more likely scenario based on what Blnx have [and haven't.....] put out formally.
I'd be happy with 2000p takeover price but let's be realistic...
That confirms my suspicion,begorrah a holder happy with aa 50p takeover?
i personally would welcome a takeover or MBO
Blackrock dumped over 13 million shares at prices between 120-150p late June - early october 2013 and again in mid-December 2013 when the price languished at 200p. They then only started to accelerate this sell-off after the first major drop. If they are in cahoots with a third party, then I only hope this party has at least 30% ownership so that by the rules of the Takeover Code, the minimum offered price has to be what was paid for those shares in the last 12 months, putting a potential floor at 200p plus. This is highly unlikely, perhaps a remote chance! Over to you Brian/Mike/Suranga - Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?

Football Blackrock make money in fees, huge fees could be earned in getting Yahoo or another US giant a takeover of blinkx at a good price. They also may have made money on CFD. A contract of DIFFERENCE ( we do not know the contract details on price) Huge short positions could not be done naked someone had to buy the underlying share BlackRock have been taking a very close interest in blinkx for a while way beyond other fund managers so have they been acting for a large corporate client all along? BlackRock as a hedge fund are too clever to buy high and sell very low
So blackrock make money by blinkx being shorted and sell there shares to Yahoo for a takeover sounds to maded up to me
The stringer. I think you are onto something! BlackRock are not daft or a victim and are not stupid enough to dump at 30 odd pence, they knew who they were lending shares to they have been insiders into the shorting plan in my humble opinion. Is it all part of a hostile takeover? BlackRock are major shareholders in Yahoo I believe. More to all this than meets the eye I reckon.
Blackrock buy over 10% 6 months or so ago, news of lots of support for the coy, then all of a sudden loan stock out to shorters,,, coincidently it all happened around the time of the blog in which the blogger was also coincidently paid to do the blog for a 'client/clients', BR then coincidently sell out as soon as the short attack comes to light and confirmation of them loaning stock out to short with... Who would buy 10%+ 30-40m shares or so of stock at an ave of £1.50 then shrug their shoulders and sell all at 30p ish...losing well over £40m in 6 months all on the back of a very dodgy blog.. Hmm not rocket science whats going on here is it!!. What next I wonder...an approach,,,cheap takeover offer maybe?
There is a massive and confounding inconsistency between what BLNX management alluded to just a couple of weeks ago in the AR&A and the information contained in the 2 July TU which has, not surprisingly, led to a collapse in the SP and a savaging by the brokers. In my opinion there are three scenarios: 1. There is tactical and strategic decision making going on behind the scenes that we are totally unaware of. At some point very soon, the wraps will come off and the SP will recover in spectacular manner. 2. BLNX has fallen victim to a highly successful campaign to destroy its market cap (with or without, latterly, further intervention from BLNX management) A MBO or takeover is imminent at a substantial premium to today's price - but way south of what it once was. My guess is IRO £1. 3. BLNX is fucked and management have committed corporate suicide. The SP wont recover to any degree. The company will be broken up for scrap.

Think the cats out the bag here big style, blackrock have had to come clean...wont be blackrock building a stake at these levels as it would stink even more for them,, it'll be some other institution/s taking advantage of blackrocks games and being found out. Bargain prices at these levels and a recovery stock or takeover in the making. 40-50p coming this week imo. If BR hadn't loaned stock out to be shorted blnx would'nt have been shorted down to 30p simple.

If you look at the share price total drop from £2 to 29p it does not take a genius to work out the drop is too much. It also does not take a genius to work out that within the next 2 weeks this will be significantly higher with or without takeover rumours.
Hi Alex, exactly.... Pace fell due to the Japanese Earthquake and Thai flooding, causing component prices to surge..they were too reliant on components from 1 source...remember HD prices doubled overnight.... Pace changed bod, focused their business on the higher margin business and stopped being reliant on single source.. They entered the Latin America and Indian markets years ago, ahead of the World Cup, indian economy boom... something blnx didn't do.... They are now world leaders, bought several businesses, providing software and services and Aurora Networks (look it up, they're going place) and pay a decent dividend.... the revenue and profits are 10x blnx... The sp went up 900% as a result... With blnx I agree a takeover is on the cards, was thinking mbo 120p but could be lower than that now...although above the current sp....
I sold off all my 888.com at 160p near the end of last year. They changed CEO, focused on their business, got rid of loss making elements ... and received a great boost when the US began to open up to online poker ... they are down at 124p now. I suspect your right - a takeover of some sort is on the cards ... no idea what the price would be but hopefully should be more than I paid.

Tsmith, agree... it is that there's no takeover talks in progress and so there can't be an announcement at agm...
BM buying means there won't be any takeover talks going on....
Autonomy sp was on its arse the day before the Takeover so its irrelevant imo. 3rd Party DD sounds very plausible,but with the sp where it is a T/O could replace any merger. A bit of corporate news,that would please the shorts no end,all profits wiped out in one fell swoop.

I'm sorry for all long-term shareholders. The RNS was not what was expected and in addition there was little information regarding other aspects of the business. If Blinkx has done this to engineer a takeover either by Management or another company, then surely legal action must be brought against the board for not seeking the best interests of existing shareholders.
The market is forward-looking, so what's the market telling you, its gonna get worse before it gets better. This is a highly competitive business, no loyalty, its a commodity business, takes seconds to move from company A to company B. Too many players now in this space, forget takeover 'hopes' IMHO this just aint gonna happen, especially now the company has been forever tainted with using the 'underhand tactics' described in the blogger's post. Damage done.
Well Invoke Capital and Balderton Capital Group are certainly hoovering up shares at below 40p.Looks like a lot of institutional dumping today and RNS's will follow soon.A most amusing yet strategic RNS TODAY.We are in a reverse takeover mode and directors will win on both sides. £80 million in the bank, no debt and the desktop business was always going to diminish.Looks like Goldman Sachs 1.20 target indicator will be the buyout price and I'm sure as ever they will already know of the deal but Invoke and Balderton have picked it up for peanuts.Some 60% down so looks like a small profit at 1.20 is better than no profits.
this has the smell of a cheap private takeover all over it...

kendo/quil/arthur/martha 'It was SC who headed the the whole debacle of an unwarranted intervention by the lies of BE and the bad teeth and soggy pizza brigade of TW. He pretty much spent 6 weeks going through every unturned corner with KROLL audit and the investigation team. They left nothing to chance and they gave KROLL a better free run than they would any would be acquisitor of their business model.' Just made that up have you? 'He pretty much spent 6 weeks going through every unturned corner with KROLL' Did he indeed? or would that just be an outrageous lie as you haven't got a takeover lie for this Monday? you usually do.

stocky, as I holder, I would love to see the sp higher at 200p, 500p, 2000p... However, given the current newsflow and broker's views I think 120-130p is about right... If blnx can convince the market that the recent slowing organic growth is a one off and that Rhythm is growing fast then we could move towards 200p again... The question of adware and how much revenue is generated from it still hangs over the company... If the bod don't go for a mbo then there is a risk of a hostile takeover... mbo bod keep their jobs, hostile takeover then they could all be out of a job...
