|The Office of Fair Trading has given the green light to BSkyB's £125 million (172m) purchase of satellite receiver manufacturer Amstrad. Last week, BSkyB announced that it was extending the deadline for acceptances of its cash offer to September 4, revealing that it now owned 85.9% of the company's stock.
BSkyB is looking to use Amstrad, founded by entrepreneur Sir Alan Sugar, to give it an in-house design and development capability. The DTH operator already represents 75% of Amstrad's income with part of the remainder coming from fellow News Corp company Sky Italia.
|Will Sky buy AMT before the OFT decision and resell if the ruling goes against them?|
|What will happen if the competition people block this deal ?
Will it go down, or will it bring another bidder ?|
|Valter,i would rather not sell,but i do not think we have much choice.|
|i presume the offer is unconditional.
any idea what % of shares are held or pledged?
i would prefer not to sell at this offer, and hold out for more, provided it does not go "compulsary"!!|
|...I guess when Alan picked a property "guru" as the new apprentice this was the sign he was selling.|

Not really. I bought before big dividend for about 160.
So 150 ( I guess) will give me about 15p profit? per share
or about 10% - which is a pretty low profit for holding these
things so long. I was rather hoping for about 180-200 a share.
Oh well, a profit is a profit.|
