Blinkx (BLNX) Takeover Rumours

Blinkx Takeover Price

Blinkx Takeover Forum Posts

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
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...
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...
When they have the money post Alibaba IPO? So a good window of opportunity for big hedge funds to bash the stock before loading up? Huge money to be made, bashing all the way down the accumulating before taking profits from a takeover. That's what I would do if I was a billionaire hedge fund manager with my mates on Wall Street. Lol.
surely this could attract takeover bids at these prices!?!
Traders just moving this around the spread, when are those thick retards at H/Q going to do something proactive to help the S/P, not once in the life of BLNX have they ever cared about small P/Is here,we need a takeover or the like , don't think the thick bastards have the guile to do an MBO so thats out of the question, the Harvard Professors words still hang over this stock like a hangmans noose.
FTI were also the PR company for qxl... the bod talked that down and went for a MBO... If you read the post regarding Citi note (posted on the other thread)... it says "Despite the recent setback Blinkx is still expected to put in solid growth for the foreseeable future. For the year to March 2015, house broker Citi expects pre-tax profit to grow by 26.5% to $41 million, on revenues 16.3% higher at $287.5 million. This translates to fully diluted EPS of 8 cents (4.8p), which implies a prospective current multiple of just 13 times." EPS of 4.8p... imo a pe of 25-30 would be a reasonable takeover price... Citi are blnx house broker... I think we'll have a MBO around 120-130p...
What! no takeover! How can that be? quil/kendo completely wrong and caught lying yet again? Imagine that!
It will give BLNX a 10% stake.Mike lynch a 5% stake.BlackRock an 11% stake.This is a blocking manoeuvre from any low ball hostile takeover.But still in their best interest if Invoke and Balderton have yet to announce any above threshold increases.Good move. Looks like business is booming!
Beg, with a takeover, a premium is usually paid... the higher the premium, the more attractive the bid 'looks' to the shareholders...If a 60% premium is paid then we're looking at 100p.. I think the bod will go for 120-130p, citing GS target and Numis, house broker, lower expectations for this yr...
Sikh - if you just sold out ofBLNX as I did (admittedly below the peak, but still at a good profit), you'd feel much better, really you would. The company's a busted flush, and barring a mythical takeover the sp ain't going anywhere too fast except probably down. The company is run by a bunch of self-serving incompetents. SC may have effectively gone, but can you have any confidence in the person he appointed to succeed him? Believe me or not, as you like (I really don't care either way), but I have very credible second-hand evidence (ie I know someone who met BM, whose opinion I trust) that the guy's even more of a numpty than The Wanker From Sri Lanka...
Sikh, I just cannot see anything to launch the sp into orbit from here for the next few months until H1 results, should they be so good otherwise we need takeover talk, I understand that yahoo have some windfall profits coming from the alibaba IPO it will be interesting to see how the new ad tech IPOs in the states do, after they have been successfully brought to market they may not be quite so exciting from here on in
Well for once on AIM I am inclined to believe that we may indeed get an offer from Yahoo, AIM is rife with takeover rumors so the general order of the day is to ignore them all but, this is one that might just be true, there are many reasons why Yahoo would be interested but for sure, and knowing how they are not generally slow to react to an advantageous position in the marketplace, Blinkx are now so seriously undervalued since the recent short attack and yet the business is growing exponentially has a big cash pile in the bank and is in the very center of the market place that Yahoo wish to take advantage off, if an offer does not come I will in fact be surprised when a company is sitting on yahoo's doorstep will ALL the technology they need.
Jarvis, I think this is a business area is still in flux or very immature if you will. Users such as Yahoo can compare best in class, test and use and pay relatively small sums as opposed to invest in something they dont really need to invest in. Blinkx is a supplier to this industry, not necessarily a differentiator in and of itself in comparison to the core of their business. Takeover, if it comes, may more likely to be from a slightly different sector. I think the comment about a merger of equals may be more to the point. Blinkx, or rather, the players in the Binkx segment have the opportunity to become massive B2B players, and create a new segment. Will that be by being the best overall, or being the best now therefore creating the funding to integrate the competition and new capabilities? Still open to question. As a large long term holder Im betting on Blinkx being much bigger before someone is tempted in.
from last week... sikhthetech 17 May'14 - 19:56 - 10469 of 10645 4 1 edit gl, agree... Based on current news, I, too don't think we will see much more before H1 results... I think it trade around 70-85p for a while... Unless we get some news, Blackrock/director buying or corporate news.... gowlane 16 May'14 - 21:29 - 10458 of 10468 1 0 I am not confident that we will see much of a move before the H1 results - which could be 6 months away! unless there is an update or corporate event like a takeover bid before then but this share never ceases to surprise me
Eric totally agree early nineties very likely in very quick time too , not many will have bought in yet most will have waited for the turn and confirmation . Looking very good still far too cheap and very ripe for takeover the longer its under a quid
~~ADVFN*MODERATEDDim2602. A fine and valid point Monsieur!You are absolutely correct.Mike Lynch is the biggest independent shareholder in BLNX.Brian is not short of a few dollars and I think we paid cash and shares in the grab media takeover, so he is very much poorer.Now Ujal took shares and cash in the rhythm takeover so is probably feeling pissed at 62p and is rather unlikely to acquire anymore.Suranga however is absolutely loaded and has had the best trading record profits from BLNX shares since they floated.Mike Lynch needs to buy at least 10 million shares for say 6.3 million just to say hello and Suranga you tight ass buy at least a minimum of 260k shares minimum.If not, Brian make sure you give them a hearty scolding!!!
Kendo my friend....I rather think your takeover antennae might need re-setting.
I think a merger with Alibaba is more likely than a takeover by Yahoo..... A merger will mean a sp but at least it'll be a way out... 2oco 7 May'14 - 19:42 - 72511 of 72511 0 0 Maybe it is Alibaba that will be interested in Blinkx and not yahoo. Http://bloom.bg/RlBmtH
In my view its like an online betting company buying another. A punter normally has both accounts with the 2 bookies (in fact normally most punters have multiple accounts) and now with the takeover his 2 accounts will turn into 1 account. He will still only do the same amount of business so the new enlarged company gains minimal financial gain with the takeover.
Mr Singh only ever has a few lines rehearsed.PACE.BOD.CLARITY.TOPPED UP AT THE LOW.RISK REWARD.CLARITY.At least he agrees that a takeover is better then a merger.
Phil - married and not quite 120! Lots of merger/takeover experience.
I think the merger of equals is Brian's way of describing the impending takeover of Blinkx by Yahoo. watch this space!
you would have to think that if there is going to be an opportunistic takeover, now is the time
If the share-price continues to linger around these levels, or to fall further, I would expect the takeover vultures to start circling, especially in view of all the cash on the balance sheet...this would be a small change acquisition for Google, Yahoo etc.
Football just read your twitter link on twitter!Shocking that they are not earning a crumb and losing a fortune. Yet their valuation versus BLNX is most shocking.If disney are making bids also for a me too add on then something has got to give and very soon.BLNX is a sitting duck in a takeover war.
we have had a trailing p/e of 100 here in the past - 2011 notably more recently we were at a trailing p/e of about 75 before the recent collapse blinkx is in the high growth ad tech sector which is less in favour right now than it has been, nevertheless posting EPS growth numbers of over 30% with the potential to jump to 60% in a good year, throw in takeover speculation and you cannot rule out a high p/e ratio again in the next couple of years looking forward to the results next week - one thing I do not expect though is clarity on the forward earnings we have never had that
Morning Loaf, I was thinking the same. Not sure if Mike Lynch could block a hostile takeover with his stake.
seems like we are yet to hear if the FTC are to officially investigate? ps.. there are a few posters around here that should see the inside of a courtroom with their market abuse claims of yahoo signing a takeover deal with blnx and the like. go back and read some of the posts on this thread and other blnx boards. market abuse at it's finest!
The only people talking about Blnx being sold is posters on BB's and recently GS saying potential takeover target. perhaps Blnx does not want to sell.
ignore this post just a test, takeover
Wardy Until there is a case to prove attempting to take out a court order will more than likely have been refused. I agree the Board could have taken a more aggressive approach but the matter is now in the hands of the FCA and their lawyers and we must now let this run its course. The most regrettable thing is that this not only plays right into the hands of the shorters but also any other traders who know how to play the market. Sell some shares, give the market a shake, knock the share price, buy back on the fall offer the same stock back on any small recovery and the price will continue to be undermined. That is of course until a profound statement is made either by the FCA or discussions are taking place which might lead to a merger or takeover. Only then any further fall in the share price will be halted.
Bot control established again, same as GKP in quicksand and nothing anyone can do until the shorts hedgies and the City Scum decide to change things, no RNS unless a takeover will have the slightest effect, short squeezes are history they get out slowly and methodically with the help of the tools at their disposal, and we are all becoming aware that the game is more bent than anyone ever imagined and is getting worse by the day.
Wardy. What are you up to? Talking up expectations to generate artificial disappointment when they fail to materialise? Why would you be disappointed if there isn't a takeover this week?
No takeover offers today bollocks thought there would be, will be this week though !!!!

and the takeover offer!! LOL
The downgrades were inevitable given the disruption to management caused by the Prof. We have been here before,GS did not like the Grab media purchase and SC's comments. Rhythm,by Blinkx own account will slow growth for at least one qtr. The share price is higher than twelve months ago. We have seen and heard the growth story from the management.We just have to wait for the implementation of Rhythm, which some posters would love to fail. I am not a trader,with hindsight i should have joined the scramble to exit for a while.I will sit on a paper loss until the inevitable takeover as happened with Autonomy.
I assume Numis have simply reduced their underlying projected rate of growth Sikh we need SBM to work his magic and come up with more in revenues, on past form it even looks likely, but $10m might be a big ask You know what, I reckon Glitterati is right about one thing, after that presentation a lot of potential bidders will be updating their files on Blinkx as a possible takeover target
"assosiate" - not a verb I am familiar with... but I assume it's Old Compton Street slang for a "reverse takeover"?
strange how peeps here call edelman and cronies mugs . They make all the money and the smart peeps here lose theirs .Hmmm .. wonder how it works If edelman pulls it off and market right now is betting he will, then this will see 50p maybe 30p. you then might have a takeover at 40p - hows that
Rocket Fuel, you have certainly changed your tune! Not so long ago you were ramping this stock daily to the high heavens on this board! To the point of absolute absurdity I have to say, never saw a ramper like you. But you are taking a traders perspective, and are entitled to change your mind like everyone else so fair enough Blinkx is now amazingly cheap, almost in value stock territory, we could easily make 5-6p (8-10c) a share in FY 2015 I would say a fair price given current uncertainties would now be 130-150p, ignoring a takeover premium - an event which could occur at any time
Notice Yahoo as part of the 3rd party presenters of the Capital Day. Something is fishy. Soon a Yahoo takeover? hTTp://marketing.corporate.blinkx.com/docs/Transcript_Capital_Markets_Day_31_03_14.pdf Third Party Presenters E.J. Hilbert, Managing Director, Cyber, Investigations & Disputes, Kroll Lesli Esposito, Partner, DLA Piper Yahoo Xaxis MediaVest Nielsen comScore
but brando. give me a good reason ( other than a fantasy takeover ) why the share price should rise back above 100p because i can't see it.... shorters will probably be adding to positions
Trouble is they are now vulnerable to a low offer takeover
It has been strong close the past 8 days so expecting alot higher over next 3 + hours ....slowly but surely we will be back at £2.50+ within next 6 months ...takeover q2 and game on The trend updwards daily so expect it to continue Fx
Roll on £1.60+ this week ....£2.50+ this year without a doubt ... Insitutions will pile in ands shorters will be forced out . All concerns put to bed and ripe for takeover after Kroll due diligence report ...roll on yahoo at £4+ Great stuff Fx
via con re "chocolate sherrifs badge"..I think blink have just inserted a cactus right up it!Many large investors will be absorbing the info,and will be at the current presentation.A combination of Q and A and some serious one to one`s should confirm confidence.From that I would expect some serious buying..some serious short closing and a return of small and large pi confidence.Forget sub £1 now ..I expect growth towards £2 again .Those takeover assertions mooted by G/sachs will be occupying people`s minds too.All in all ,a great stock to buy to hold med or long term ..or to trade.Underpinned by a growth rate that would be the envy of many companies.JMO
there will be alot of competition for takeover in q2...bought another 50k at 95p this monrning .. good luck holders fx
fx. come on spill the beans. what's this takeover all about then? price, date, who?
q2 takeover should be interesting then .... fx
Sikh, to be honest I would have been 20 times more concerned about whether Blinkx had missed the bus with mobile media, but the Rhythm purchase has gone a long way to reassuring me there as for Meg and the HP/Automomy debacle, I always thought this was a bit bizarre, because of her position Meg got a bit of a free pass and a respectful hearing from the financial press at the time, but recently even the FT openly poured scorn on her position, in my view it was all designed to take attention from a bad takeover decision and buy her time to start turning HP around 15 months on and where is the beef? Heck even an accountancy exam only gives you 3 hours to make a case from supplied evidence, but here there is no evidence, nothing that would not invite derision, nada, it is completely wacko
A isreali , south african and usa firms are running takeover ruler over blink ... I have very good contacts in online advertising ... They expect q2 takeover ...may happen sooner but i doubt it ..no idea price Enjoy the ride The info is from executive director of USA listed online advertising co Fx
For the record Goldman sachs have stated this is high risk for takeover inaddition to convcition buy at £3.4 My valuation is 30 times forwad 10p eps =£3 ...presently on 10 which is unbelievable ...growth is running at 30% yoy and they could deliver higher Fx
a takeover approach now would put cat amongst the pigeons ... very high likelyhood with recent mobile acquisition and growth expected .. limited downside and massive upside .. ride the waves fx
seen this before with many cos .... It is primed to hit higher highs and this is a very good entry price ... Sit tight for 12 months timeframe and you should not be disappointed ... A takeover in short term would bring rewards quicker .. Just look a facebook share price ..analaysts are racing to keep pace .. High tech seems to be the go go area at present if you do not disappoint market and capital markets day seems to show the market the potential Best of luck Fx
Tell me the difference: 1) You pay someone to get inside information on a company takeover - you then buy some shares - the news is duly released, - price rockets. You sell, make a killing and GET arrested and you and your co-conspirator ARE jailed for market abuse. 2) You pay someone to create bad news for a company - so go short ahead of it been released - the news is duly released - price collapses. You close your short, make a killing and DON'T get arrested and you and your co-conspirator are NOT jailed for market abuse. How's that then ? Arguably, 2 is WORSE than 1 because at least with scenario one, the majority of shareholders are long and win with any share rise..... In scenario 2, the majority of shareholders are probably now worse off than they were due to the price collapse. A disgrace to the London Stock Exchange - that such a blatant manipulation has taken place.
i would say if that .blnz has everything above board otherwise they would not be holding capital makets day to flaunt their wears .. good chance in current environment of takeover approach at this level ....very common actually just a opinion fx
Since it is fraud would the Serious Fraud Office look at it? I would have thought that Mike Lynch has instigated a battle plan and has direct connections in the right places.ben is assuming that none of the fraud offices will act before he comes to london, which may or may not be correct but he's a sitting duck isn't he!End of the day I don't believe blnx can be taken out by the nasties, I suspect they were considering a takeover of a nasdaq co prior to this assault and some quite influencial people wanted to stop that. But life is a game of snakes and ladders and their upcoming results will be one of their ladders..
