|DELL poached IBM's leading M&A director a year ago, but he didn't work on the deal to buy PEROT. what is he working on? bid for ACN? it is possible... but IBM would outbid them. some of the indian outsource companies could also bid|
|can imagine a decent bidding war. ACN is a unique property.|
|Reading between the lines, it seems feasible|
|looks like the blokes over at www.fairshare.biz got it right again as usual, how do they do it|
|Well, I have been buying stock at below 20p - looks a fair price to me to be able to buy below the placing price. Boring business - perect for todays High Street.|
|Looks like we've peaked for now...I'm out. Back again if new momentum returns..|
|There's the first 10k and 20K buys that came through at the open. And remember there are only 8M stock in issue, so it shouldn't take much to move this one...|
|LONDON (AFX) - UK small caps opened firmer, in line with the overall market
trend, and boosted by a crop of favourable acquisition moves, traders said.
By 9.10 am, the FTSE Small-Cap index stood 0.8 up at 2,495.7, while the FTSE
100 was 22.4 ahead 4,328.7.
Advance Capital Invest topped the list of best-performing small-caps,
climbing 9 pence to 25 after the company revealed it has bought Imagesound, TTL
Music, and Rolec - three businesses involved in the supply of licensed instore
music, radio and TV services to the retail and leisure sectors - for 15.1 mln
Advance, which today disclosed widening interim pretax losses of 16,000 stg
against 11,000 a year earlier, also said it is to raise 3 mln stg via a placing
at 20 pence per share.|
|Since this is an AIM stock, trades over NMS can be delayed by the MMs. Typically this is between 1-2hours, although I've seen longer occasionally. They should therefore start showing in about half an hour...|
|Can anyone explain such a rise with no volume? Excuse my ignorance if I missed something obvious.|
|loads more upside to this surely?|
|D6 - You've got mail!|
|cap - can you email me please re another possible cash shell opportunity..
|Cash Shells bound to be back in favour after this....|
|just squeezed in 10k @20.75 - hopefully lots more to come today!|
|This looks like a great result for us shareholders. I calculate a pro-forma P/E ratio of 4.7 on the basis on the 0.9m operating profit given and the additional 15M shares placed (in addition to the exisiting 8M). I need to go and do some benchmarking now, but initially it looks to me like there is room for further upside here, IMO. Well done ACN management!|
|gutted, sold these on Tuesday :-(|
|Good Call SCA!|
|Action stations at last :-)
|I think a buy in this stock is in order, esp after reading this from IC at the weekend:
"Advanced Capital raised £2m when it floated on Aim in October 2000. Since then, it has reviewed a number of potential reverse takeovers, but none have been deemed sufficiently suitable by a board led by Nigel Whittaker, former director of Kingfisher and B&Q. But better stock market conditions could increase the number of suitors - particularly as costs have been reduced further and there are no employees other than the directors. And, last year, their remuneration was cut from £63,000 to £35,000, while net cash outflow fell from £328,000 to £30,000."
Good luck all holders!|
|Suprised no thoughts on the small trade paying 2p above the offer for 30,000 plus shares yesterday.
btw L2 2 v 2, 12.5p/14.5p|
|Market Capitalisation is £1million. Cash is £1.3million.
I watched a couple of weeks ago as AKI doubled, prior to it being suspended because of RTO talks - one trade so far today has pushed the price up a little, but still valued 30% discount to cash - await further developments.|

|If you want a cash shell you might as well get one at a discount to cash. ACN fits the bill.|
