Got the recommendation and the proxy forms this morning. As a long term investor I do want to object to the offer. Does anyone know if there is a proxy who is acting for objectors or do I still nominate the chairman but indicate my opposition on the form? Not that my meagre holding will maker any difference in the greater scheme of things but I would like to take a stand nevertheless.tatsfield
Well if there is another bidder he had better show his hand by the start of the proms - 17 July. Nice to see the price rise, so is there something afoot ? Either that or are the MM's taking profits on their cheap buys last week. 'We are all doomed' ...........LOLpicobird
Yes pico thanks. So what's your take on the latest point another bidder would need to reveal their intentions? The general meeting at the end of the month or is that too late. Good to see this go back over the offer price again todaydavr0s
pico, you are doing a great job keeping us informed. Much appreciated. butmac, thanks for the encouragementjadeticl3

Seems like we may be able to buy a nice greek property soon for ?irenekent
Plenty of time, second week of Wimbledon, Proms Season & then the fat lady has to sing. Germans will insist on the dracma for Greece, so the Greeks have scored an own goal & walked off the pitch in protest - LOL.picobird
Not quite Butmbmiah
As Frasier would say "Dads Army" "We're All Doomed!" Help!butmac
All in all, seems like a done deal - with the share price weakening below the offer pricembmiah
Irene In the Kraft / Cadbury takeover it was found in the report that followed.................. 'In the wider public policy context, we express our concern that the takeover of Cadbury by Kraft was ultimately decided by institutional investors motivated by short-term profits rather than those investors who had the company’s long-term interests at heart'. So again, the institutions like the BOD always put their own interests before those of the shareholder majority which in effect makes a nonsense of putting shareholders interests first & foremost.picobird
Pico, Well said. I remember the trading partnership with Agilent which suddenly came to an abrupt end. Maybe this takeover was being planned back then to coincide with management's retirement plans, options vesting etc. The creation of Keysight's Dutch entity must have been a tax dodge to avoid US taxation and corporate governance. I wonder what the US authorities might think of this little manoeuvre. Anite's connections with China Mobile might also worry the authorities if the co. was based in the US. If another bidder doesn't come out of the woodwork it raises the question of how good Anite actually is. If its as good as we all think it is I would have thought other bidders would be queuing up to take it over. The intellectual properties alone would probably justify a higher price let alone the human capital of a highly skilled workforce. I am surprised that a new management team haven't emerged to present a rival offer. As I've said before this is looking like a shoddy deal all round, with as usual the shareholders being shafted. I wonder how many institutional votes have now been pledged in support of this deal? Surely the market should be updated with this info on a regular basis.irenekent
Anite always used to refer to Agilent as their 'hardware partner' having made several partnership agreements with them circa 2008. It can be assumed that Humphries & Brendish are on fairly good terms with the Agilent management. No doubt in order to endear themselves to their 'old chums', they have stitched up the shareholders & put their own interests first. Chris Humphrey has referred to a 'premium' in the offer price which simply is not true, hoping his words will act as a platitude to the shareholders. The institutions really need to get tough over this nonsense talk & send Keysight packing.picobird
Why is next week critical? I am assuming that any company that was cautiously considering making an offer for Anite, but saw no urgency prior to the current offer, will now want to complete its due diligence with more urgency. They would not want to jump in before reading the company results, but now these are in the public arena, and they are too good to let this company change hands at about 120p per share, then I am expecting others to show an interest soon, as in this coming week. If there is no interest expressed this coming week I will be concerned. Does anyone recall the time gap between the accepted offer by Barclays for ABM Amro and the competing offer coming in from RBS?jadeticl3
I am no longer a holder but do feel that this is totally outrageous! Given the latest market update the share price would probably be around 120p so they are effectively recommending a takeover for virtually no premium. I can only assume that the big shareholders will tell them to sod off, if they don't I would really want to know why.salpara111
Jadeticl3 - why is next week critical in the timeline of things cheers andyandyj47632
DavRos is right. Only a higher bid will change anything. Next week is critical.jadeticl3
Despite everything said above things will only change with a rival bid... Which is why I am pleased to see another £1m paid above the offer price. This has happened already so suggests someone is confident of another bid or is even a new bidder accumulating. So still happy to sit this outdavr0s
I agree with said comments and will be sending a strongly worded comment to the Anite Board.mrsting
Excellent muscletrade. (Wish I could write proper like you.........LOL) I have been rather alarmed at the way the company profits have been continually eroded by the CEO's remuneration package. This is a minnow of a company - not a Shell or BP.picobird
I have also sent a message. The cancellation of the dividend was the final straw. Outrageous.irenekent
Anite does have an investor Relations section on their web site where you can send a message to them. I have done so and would urge others to do the same. They could care less about a private investor of course and we need one of the institutions to stand up and make a fuss (fat chance), but at least I have said my piece.... "I would like to congratulate the company for the excellent results published this morning.The results however only highlight that the Board have been premature in agreeing to a bid of 126p from keysight that is well short of the true value of OUR company. I would like to voice my serious concern in the way this bid approach has been handled as from my perspective it seems a long way short of being in the best interest of all shareholders, in fact there are many that are arguing that it is primarily in the best interest of senior management of the company. This is a shame and I hope that a proper and respectable rival bid will emerge in due course. Needless to say I will not be voting in favour of the current bid".muscletrade
IC View.........No premium has been paid for Anite. htTP://www.investorschronicle.co.uk/2015/07/01/shares/news-and-analysis/keysight-set-on-anite-DtUoy9U0F99JNQ1H0ospZN/article.html Mill buys went through at lunchtime. Half mill at close yesterday. With Keysight being so cost conscious the CEO can expect to be replaced by the the Group Finance guy. He would have been voted out with the Chairman by the shareholders should anything have gone wrong with the bid/offer from Keysight IMHO.picobird
