lbo: http://www.irishtimes.com/newspaper/finance/2009/1118/1224259040712.html AER LINGUS'S share price closed down more than 3 per cent in Dublin yesterday after it announced that the deadline for acceptance of a controversial €97 million restructuring plan had been extended

biglosses: Director buys this morning which has to be a good sign. Although the company has been losing money, I think now could be a good time to buy. As per LBO's post above, the company is taking measures to return to profitability. Ryanair is also lurking which could boost the share price. (although due to EU rules, a takeover can't take place until January) There also seems to be more positive news on the economy than negative of late. As always DYOR

lbo: Stand by for the new rights issue stampede http://www.independent.ie/business/irish/stand-by-for-the-new-rights-issue-stampede-1749366.html Also rapidly burning through its cash pile is Aer Lingus. At the end of last year its cash reserves had shrunk to just €650m with many analysts now expecting that it could shrivel to just €325m by the end of this year. A rights issue would buy time for the new chief executive to sort out the problems at the airline and would have the added bonus of stuffing rival Ryanair. An Aer Lingus rights issue at even the current share price would oblige Ryanair, not just to crystalise a €340m loss on its existing 29.8 per cent Aer Lingus shareholding, but also force it to throw good money after bad to prevent its stake from being massively diluted

fisons5: What was announced yesterday was something we already knew.The share price was already beaten up...so I am surprised at the sudden drop to 56cent, the usual market overreaction and hysterics. Bit of a bounce today. Certainly punters choice at these ridicously low levels. Only a matter of time before it rallies strongly, share price could easily rally over a euro if aer lingus makes the right moves.

mpto: why would the pilots buy at 3.05? an extra couple of % in the hands of employees is barely relvant and if they succeed in thwarting the bid the share price will drop. who gives this type of advice.

cat100: RYANAIR ADVISES THAT IT HAS ACQUIRED A 16% STAKE IN AER LINGUS AND ANNOUNCES AN ALL-CASH OFFER OF Euro2.80 PER SHARE VALUING AER LINGUS AT Euro1.481BN The board of Ryanair Holdings plc today (5th October 2006) advises that it has acquired over 16% of the issued share capital of Aer Lingus Group plc. Ryanair now announces its intention to make an all cash offer of Euro2.80 per share for the issued share capital of Aer Lingus not already in the ownership of Ryanair. This offer is conditional on, among other things, obtaining at least a majority of the shares in Aer Lingus. This cash offer values Aer Lingus at approximately Euro1.481bn and represents a premium of 27% (approximately) over last week's IPO share price of Euro2.20 per share and a premium of 12% (approximately) over last evening's closing price for Aer Lingus shares of Euro2.51. The share price appreciation since the Aer Lingus IPO occurred during the same short period in which Ryanair acquired over 16% of Aer Lingus shares at an average price of Euro2.42 per share. During the 2nd and 3rd of October - the two days during which Ryanair was not actively buying Aer Lingus shares - the share price fell back from Euro2.48 to Euro2.41. Speaking at the launch of the offer this morning, Ryanair's CEO, Michael O'Leary, said: "This offer represents a unique opportunity to form one strong airline group for Ireland and for European consumers. We will expand, enhance and upgrade the Aer Lingus operations. This offer - if successful - means both companies will continue to operate separately and compete vigorously in the small number of routes on which we both operate - currently around 17 of the approximately 500 routes operated by the two airlines. We believe the price of Euro2.80 to be an excellent offer. If accepted the Irish Government will realise over Euro500m from the sale of their Aer Lingus shares, and the employees will realise over Euro220m which equates to an average of over Euro60,000 per employee." The combined strength of Ryanair and Aer Lingus would establish an Irish airline group with over 50m passengers annually, capable of competing on the European and World stage against other large European airline groups, including Lufthansa /SAS/Swiss (75m passengers), Air France/KLM (70m passengers) and BA/Iberia (63m passengers). As the European airline industry consolidates, this acquisition, if it proceeds, will largely replicate previous consolidations in, for example, France (Air France/Brit Air/Regionale/KLM), UK (BA/B.Cal/DanAir/City Express), Germany (Lufthansa/Eurowings/Lufthansa Cityline/Swiss) and Scandinavia (SAS/ Braethens). There are benefits of combining these two Irish and European airlines into one group. To give a flavour of what this offer - if successful - might mean to Aer Lingus, its stakeholders and the people of Ireland and Europe, Ryanair intends to:- *Reduce Aer Lingus' average short haul fare (Euro87.55 in 2005) by 2 1/2% a year for a minimum period of four years; *Reduce Aer Lingus' fuel surcharges as the price of oil falls from recent highs; *Retain the Aer Lingus brand; *Retain the Heathrow slots; *Retain all profitable routes currently operated by Aer Lingus; *Reduce Aer Lingus' costs through improved efficiencies and Ryanair's superior purchasing power; *Give Aer Lingus access to the benefit of Ryanair's lower cost aircraft deliveries and lower cost financing facilities; *Upgrade Aer Lingus' transatlantic fleet and improve its long haul product; *Maintain Aer Lingus as a stand alone, separate company within one strong Irish airline group under common ownership but run as separate competing airlines. As the above benefits demonstrate, the Board of Ryanair intends to deliver a publicly owned, Irish managed and headquartered airline group with the necessary ambition, expertise, financial strength and cost base to take on European and Global competitors well into the future. As an island nation, Ireland is critically dependant upon strong and secure low fare airline services in order to sustain and develop tourism and economic growth. Investing in Aer Lingus is attractive for Ryanair and its shareholders because, amongst other things, Aer Lingus' earnings yield is superior to the returns currently available on Ryanair's cash deposits. Ryanair believes that there will be opportunities (by combining the purchasing power of Ryanair and Aer Lingus) to reduce operating costs, to increase efficiencies and to pass on these savings in the form of low fares to the travelling public. Ryanair has grown to be Europe's largest low fares airline by continuously lowering prices and funding these reductions through cost savings and efficiencies. We believe there is an opportunity to apply this successful low fares formula to Aer Lingus where currently, in its short haul operation, fares and costs remain far too high. We would also expect to work closely with Aer Lingus, if the offer is successful, to improve its long haul operations where we believe there is room to upgrade the long haul fleet and improve this product which has not kept pace with the competition in recent years. Since we envisage that the two companies would be run separately, in the event that this offer is successful, nothing in this transaction will deflect Ryanair from continuing to focus on its own pan-European expansion or from continuing to deliver unit cost reductions and continuing to offer lower fares to millions of Ryanair's European passengers. There are numerous precedents across Europe (for example, in the UK, France, Spain, Germany and Scandinavia) for two airlines of similar nationality coming together to form a stronger, more widely diversified airline group. The European Union has recognised the value of competitive European airline consolidation because of the benefits which it brings to consumers. This offer, if successful, will result in that precedent being largely replicated here in Ireland and elsewhere, with the added benefit that customers of Aer Lingus will enjoy lower fares in the short haul market, a better product and service in the long haul market by reducing fuel surcharges as oil prices fall, as Ryanair applies its philosophy of lower costs and lower fares to Aer Lingus' existing business. In accordance with the strict rules which apply to takeovers, Ryanair is limited in its ability to answer questions in relation to this offer. This release should be read in conjunction with the full text of the rule 2.5 announcement issued today. The directors of Ryanair accept responsibility for the information contained in this announcement other than that relating to Aer Lingus, the Aer Lingus Group, the directors of Aer Lingus and persons connected with them. To the best of the knowledge and belief of the directors of Ryanair (who have taken all reasonable care to ensure that such is the case), the information contained in this announcement for which they respectively accept responsibility is in accordance with the facts and does not omit anything likely to affect the import of such information. This announcement, including information included or incorporated by reference in this announcement, may contain 'forward-looking statements' concerning the Cash Offer, Ryanair, and Aer Lingus. Generally, the words 'will', 'may', 'should', 'could', 'would', 'can', 'continue', 'opportunity', 'believes', 'expects', 'intends', 'anticipates', 'estimates' or similar expressions identify forward-looking statements. The forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed in the forward-looking statements. Many of these risks and uncertainties relate to factors that are beyond the companies' abilities to control or estimate precisely, such as future market conditions and the behaviours of other market participants, and therefore undue reliance should not be placed on such statements. Ryanair assumes no obligation in respect of, nor intends to update these forward-looking statements, except as required pursuant to applicable law.

bucho: ajmace - 27 Sep'06 - 15:43 This seems to have started very well. Quite steady throughout the first day of conditional dealings and up about 7% from the initial share price of E2.20 With lower oil prices I now expect a smooth take-off right through the start of official dealings on Monday october 2nd. What do others trhink? ------------------------------------------- ajmace, I trhink (sic) you are correct. The grey market is looking good. There should be a steady climb after take-off on Monday. Hopefully, there will not be too much turbulence during the flight. But, there will probably be a lot of PIs jumping from the aircraft when it reaches higher altitudes. Bucho
