Yes as I understand it they are indeed gunning for all concerned and will not be taking apparent falsification of accounts lying down. It will be interesting to see how things play out.mike111d

Strange to see that HP now reckon that Autonomy was worth a fraction of the price they paid and are going to court. What happens to Lynch now.robwt

Actually there's a link on Autonomy's website entitled "HP offers to acquire Autonomy". Click on that and it takes you straight to all the relevant announcements and documents. Looks like HP needs 75% to make the offer unconditional, after which it will require Autonomy to delist from the stock exchange and shareholders will get paid out within 14 days.alan@bj

If HP have a majority of acceptances - I think that means they have to have more than c.70% - then the takeover gets firmed up and shareholders should get paid out within 14 days. But we have to wait until HP announce whether they've got enough acceptances, and if not, whether they are going to extend the timeframe again. The exact number of acceptances required and when shareholders get paid out are both in the Offer Documents, which you can find in the Investor Relations section on Autonomy's website.alan@bj

So what happens to shares held after today? Are they automatically 'cashed in' by the broker?tr65

It is today. This from the Financial Times 13th September:- Hewlett-Packard has extended the deadline for its £6.7bn ($10.6bn) takeover for Autonomy after fewer than half of the UK software company’s shareholders approved the bid. However, analysts said the deal was still on track and the delays merely reflected the large number of hedge funds who have taken positions in the company since the deal was announced. Such investors typically wait until the last possible moment before accepting a bid offer. In August, HP launched a takeover bid for the FTSE 100 group and asked Autonomy shareholders to rubber stamp the £25.50-a-share cash offer by September 12. At a 79 per cent premium to the £14.29 closing price of Autonomy the previous day, the deal was seen as highly advantageous to the UK software company’s shareholders. “With Autonomy’s takeover by HP, its shareholders have been presented with a handsome reward – a 32.8 price/earnings ratio on our estimates,” said George O’Connor, an analyst at Panmure Gordon However, more than 48m Autonomy shares were traded on August 18, the day the deal was announced, bringing dozens of hedge funds into the shareholder register. HP said on Tuesday that shareholders representing only 41.6 per cent of Autonomy’s equity agreed to the deal when the deadline expired, forcing the US group to extend its offer to October 3. However, it is not uncommon for an offer period to be extended two or three times as acceptances are gathered in. “There is no real sense that the deal is falling off track. The stock price has not traded down,” said Milan Radia, analyst at Jefferies. “This is a deal that would be very difficult to disrupt because of the importance of securing the co-operation of the management.”alan@bj

20430, the following was released as an rns, so I assume that shareholders could have accepted the offer up until 9am this morning, but I also note that the Halifax sharedealing site stated 26th Sept.. Hewlett Packard: Offer For Autonomy Open For Acceptances Until Oct. 3 Hewlett-Packard Company (HPQ), said Wednesday that the recommended cash offer by Hewlett-Packard Vision B.V. to acquire the entire issued and to be issued share capital of Autonomy Corporation PLC (AU.LN), will remain open for acceptance until 0900 GMT on Oct. 3, adding that it is not currently aware of any impediment to the Offer being declared unconditional in all respects. MAIN FACTS: -HP Vision, an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of Hewlett-Packard Company now confirms that decisions authorizing the Offer have been made by the Irish Competition Authority and the German Bundeskartellamt and that the Austrian Federal Competition Authority has withdrawn its application for an in-depth examination of the Offer, and, as a consequence, that the condition in relation to the Non-U.S. Filings set out in paragraph 1(C) of Part A of Appendix I to the Offer Document has also been satisfied. -By Razak Musah Baba, Dow Jones Newswires; 44-20-7842-9275; razak.baba@dowjones.comsm001

Skinny - Your link doesn't seem to work. Here's the full one:- www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/newsbysector/mediatechnologyandtelecoms/electronics/8797853/Mike-Lynch-suffers-a-reversal-of-fortunes.html A short would certainly be more profitable than the takeover premium if HP could find a way to wriggle out of it.alan@bj
