The Max Cash option was scaled back. About 90% of my holding was given option 1 and 10% option 2.

Last day of trading in the old shares tomorrow. Re: the claim in post 35 above, I've found no other confirmation that the 'mix and match' facility has been cancelled, and my broker hasn't told me that my request for one of the max options is to be ignored.

There's also nothing on MCA's web site nor has there been an RNS about the mix and match being cancelled. Option 1 (default) 1 MCA = 165.4p + 1.08 CLLN Option 2 (Max Cash) 1 MCA = 547.45p Option 3 (Max shares) 1 MCA = 1.5475618 CLLN Options 4, 5 & 6 - as 1, 2 & 3, except with loan notes instead of cash. Options 2, 3, 5 & 6 will be scaled back depending on demand (to satisfy those pedantics who want to know why there is a loan note alternative to the max shares option).

Many thanks for your help. I have just phoned my stockbroker and they don't seem to know anything about the mix and match being cancelled ? They have explained the mix and match to me, i.e. 1.08 Carillon share in either cash or shares plus £1.654 extra for each MCA share held. However, this is not of any help as they don't know what cash value Carillon have set per share for this offer !*!? ?

The mix and match has been cancelled. You either accept the shares + cash or shares + loan notes (this is for avoidance of cgt depending on personal circumstances)

Will someone help me please ? I don't understand this max and match offer at all! The basic offer seems simple enough i.e. 100 shares in MCA = Basic offer of 108 Carillon share plus £165.40 cash But what does this mix and match offer ? Can we elect for All cash ? if so how much ? or All shares ? if so how many ? I have seen a figure of £3.8205 quoted but is this in addition to £1.645 ? HELP PLEASE

As an MCA holder this is the deal I just received the following via Share centre this morning. basic option - 165.4 pence plus 1.08 New Carillion Shares (or I can apply to take it all in cash or all in shares (valuing the CLLN shares at 382.05) or I can apply to take the cash element in loan notes paying 0.5% BELOW 6-month LIBOR - downside for me of that is I'd have to take them out of my ISA. ----------------- So have I missed something or should I take the cash and then buy CLLN in the market at 350.5 ? Or are there going to be additional Carillion shares issued? or some other reason for the price disparity? PS - anyone got a link for the LIBOR rate?

Well the slate business has gone. www.investegate.co.uk I guess that must've been one of the things that attracted CLLN (or was it sold because CLLN were interested in MCA and didn't want the slate side?)

At the 530p range these are too cheap. Should be 545p to equate to current Carrilion share price which I'd imagine to strengthen from here. Outside chance of a counter offer with a higher cash componentnow that the bid price has been dropped, although I don't see a foreign company as being able to extract the same sort of savings.

Hi guys Does anyone happen to know the IT setup within MCA? Do they outsource their IT support services or is it in house? Merging the Mowlem network just recently (eventually), now I've got another (I'm led to believe much bigger) network to migrate. Any feedback would be much appreciated :-)

Ed, Agree with your broad points.Today`s comments from CLLN are bullish.As an MCA HOLDER who added after the bid on the pullback I`m very happy to hold the new CLLN shares.

Looking better now after the early sell-off. CLLN looks good to me. They absorbed MWLM well and it boosted their share price. It's likely that they will do well out of MCA, imho. MCA had reached about 612p in the market before the slate revelation, so to buy it now for 558p looks a good deal to me - although it does involve the issue of CLLN shares at an assumed 363p and there have been the slate costs. About half of the cash element should be covered by the planned sales. Assuming the takeover proceeds, 2008 will be a year of adjustments. 2009 should show what can be achieved. MCA's business services may be expected to grow in line with the outsourcing sector, say 15% p.a. MCA's contracting side will provide additional resources for CLLN's Middle East operations, where they seem to be going flat out. The target for annual savings is big, but based on their MWLM experience, I would give it some credance. I think both sets of shareholders will vote for the deal. MCA will be absorbed and CLLN's shareprice may tread water for a while - some new shareholders selling and some accounting for execution risk. In September 2008 the interims should give news about integration. The March 2009 final announcement should include a firmer statement about progress. 2009, if all goes well, should see eps boost (one-off costs finished, savings and business growth continuing). CLLN, in better market conditions, had reached 430p. With continuing growth in their own business and a contribution from MCA, assumuming that the credit market issues are improved, CLLN's shareprice could reach 500p-ish with the finals announcement in March 2009. This is only my guess, of course, but, to me, a potential 40%-ish rise in 15 months is worth holding on for. We'll see how it goes.

Read through the small print. The slate sale is going ahead. MCA Shareholders will be able to apply for greater % of cash than what is currently proposed subject to availability. New carrilion shareholders will receive CLLN dividend for 31st December '07.

The cost savings are huge. 30m gbp, when considering that MCA is forecast to make 34m gbp for 2007. I'm inclined to hold onto my CLLN shares at these levels.

Yes, seems fair enough. CLLN could shift to the support services sector; potential to improve its rating. CLLN's current trading is very good and excellent momentum in the Middle East. Offers for the Slate Division may not have been high enough due to the credit crunch. We'll see.

Agreed on all counts Miamisteve.Would assume this will quickly move to 540 ish straightaway.....if it doesn`t I will add again.
