RI, needs more money to grow (shareholders money presumably), business not easily understood.....sounds moderately toxic to me. Nevertheless, we've been jipped by the dirty Chris, sly mada fackermbmiah
Interesting that this was a cash only deal. Looks like the directors just wanted to get out while the going was good. But then I'm a cynic.irenekent
There is nothing toxic about Anite. They need more money to grow bigger, hence the Capital Markets Event held in February. They have ambitions which are going begging because they cannot fund them. Perhaps a Rights Issue may have been considered, but I had no extra funds for that & perhaps it was a no -no because of their share price record. After all, nobody really understood the company - bit too technical. The one company that I would like to invest in is Rohde & Schwarz but that is not possible because it is family owned. As Irene said, we got ripped off. Keysight is an interesting chart. Agilent were too slow to catch a cold. The question is 'can Keysight cut the mustard ?'. BTW - I think the competition had caught up. Also, we could be in for a fair bit of grief as the Bear Market must surely be just around the corner. Most shares will be in for a battering then, & Keysight, well just how far below $20 could they fall ?picobird
"If the company is as good as we all think it is" Indeed, but is it?? Why no counter bid?rathlindri
The thing that astonishes me more than the behaviour of the BOD is the non appearance of a counter bid. If the company is as good as we all think it is, and if the present offer is manifestly low, then the missing of this opportunity by a rival is unbelievable. So what do we not know? My mind goes again to the takeover of ABM AMRO by the infamous Sir Fred of RBS. He topped Barclay's offer only to find that the takeover brought RBS to its knees, and resulted in his demise (sacking and disgrace). He had not known the amount of toxic debt that would accrue with ABM AMRO. Could there be something sinister that, as yet, we do not know?jadeticl3
Anybody know who Maven are buying for?mbmiah
A bitter sweet end to a long ride. I made a 100% profit but really expected the shares to rise to 160p and am disappointed and somewhat bemused by the actions of the BoD. But possibly there are unspoken reasons why a higher competitive bid was not forthcoming. I'll take my profit and miss the roller coaster of Anite share ownership! Best of luck to the regulars on this forum.tatsfield
Sorry to hear not the result that you all wanted. Just a heads up if you want to invest in a cracking company not a million miles different to Anite you could do worse than take a look at Laird (LRD) announced its results yesterday and bounced north a considerable distance. Good luck in future.werty5
yes, bye bye all. what a rip-off.irenekent
Pico, does this mean a counter bid cannot take place now?mbmiah
Court Sanction today was passed. htTP://www.trustnet.com/Investments/Article.aspx?id=201507301656186353U So I suppose the cash settlement will be distributed in a couple of weeks. About one month to be more precise from today. I can see Greece dropping/pushed out of the EU in the not too distant future.picobird
sorry meant to sell in my previous postali47fish
Fish, Maven are continuously upping their stake herembmiah
please tell me when it is time to buy- is there still hope for acounterbid?ali47fish
Not much happening here then - not even a whiff of a rumourmbmiah
Cheers werty5, all the best for the future.picobird
Well, my vote against has now been entered.kilgallp
Well I sold out this morning looks like a done deal. Good luck to all holders. Would like to thank Pico for his tireless input and pass on my best wishes to long term holders Irene and Pico and hope fortune smiles on them in futurewerty5
Thanks scobak, We live in hope. Irene.irenekent
Cheers scobak. Thanks for the info & will look into it. I have tracked one or two companies over the years & may give them a go. I think it takes a fair while to 'trust' a BOD. Anite for instance has always been very transparent but it takes time to 'learn' about any company. Unfortunately, we lost at least 20p on the Anite bid simply by the timing of a few weeks. The price has always risen on the IMS & then again on the announcement of the formal results. Add to that the TA forecast over 2-3 months & an array of other factors & that builds to a 50p shortfall. The BOD have certainly put their own interests first, as the CEO cannot be that 'thick'.picobird
I am currently looking at the companies Brian Kennedy is involved in. Seems to be very effective at buying and selling companies in the construction industry. He has previously had connections with Everest, Latium, Epwin among many others. Seems that if you can get in on some of the IPOs that there is usually a good bit of upside. Just a starting point for you Pico if looking to find homes for your proceeds. There is obviously much ongoing research following such people but adds some fun and interest and the prospect of some capital growth. Anyhow good hunting Pico.scobak
Cheers scobak. Glad to hear you have made a little. Not got much to say about Anite now. The BOD put the company up for sale & passed it off as a takeover - very underhand ! That is something which the shareholders should have been informed about & a vote taken at the AGM. In theory it could threaten the court sanction next week if the truth comes out. Going to be looking carefully at whether the markets are going into a Bear Phase. I learnt about bubbles when the technology bubble burst around 2000 so was prepared for the property bubble bursting & got out a good year in advance. GLApicobird
Investors Chronicle of 24/7/15 page 56, takeovers, has changed its stance from 'sit tight' to 'Accept' The writing is on the wall for the closure of this sorry saga. Picobird. Thank you for your knowledge and insights. If it means anything at all to you I have been in and out 3 times over the last year and a bit, and with your unwitting assistance have made money each time. I currently hold 8,000 shares each with a breakeven of 86 pence so will again come up smelling of roses. I am so sorry for those with personal involvement who with all the other shareholders really deserved better. My feelings go to Irene and Pico. I don't see the vote going against or another offer at this late stage so this finds me awaiting the finale.scobak
The consensus seems to be the offer price is too low. I presume we're all voting against?kilgallp
Found some info: "When a takeover bid or scheme is announced, things can move quickly. The price offered may increase, or the period for accepting the takeover bid may be extended. The share price can be a good indicator of whether the market thinks the bid or scheme will succeed. Generally, when the bid or scheme is first announced, the price of shares in the company rises to around the level of the offer price. If the market expects a better offer to emerge, share prices can sometimes be higher than the offer price. On the other hand, if the market thinks the offer is unlikely to succeed, the share price may be less than the offer price". I think the BOD realise that the institutions will accept a low offer without 'rocking the boat'. On the other hand it could be worth 'kicking up a stink' in order to impress the boss.picobird
