wad collector: From the telegraph; Australian investment group Macquarie, private equity firm CVC and French industrial services company Suez are all said to now be circling waste collection company Biffa. But with Biffa's shares ending 3 worse at 304p, you could be forgiven for thinking that a takeover at the 350p mooted offer price is unlikely to happen. Indeed, shares in Biffa have seen very volatile trading over the last few months. Since a private equity consortium comprising Hg Capital and Montagu approached the company at the end of last year with a potential offer of around 350p, Biffa's shares have closed as high as 341p and as low as 304p. As the shape of the bidding consortium has changed - with Global Infrastructure Partners (GIP) replacing Hg Capital as the partner for Montagu - hedge funds have become increasingly nervous that the deal will now not be going through. There have also been rumours that Montagu and GIP are having trouble securing financing for the deal amid a worsening global credit crunch. However, sources have said if there were any material problems in terms of the financing, the company or the offeror would then have to make an official announcement to ensure a false market wasn't being created in the share price. And now the market talk is that Biffa has received further approaches.

johne1: "Montagu Private Equity LLP continues to be interested in pursuing a cash offer for Biffa...... The Board has received notification that Hg Pooled Management Limited ('Hg') no longer wishes to pursue making an offer for Biffa....." The latter may be part of the reason for the share price slip. There is still no certainty that a deal will be done.

theband: Montagu said it and HgCapital approached Biffa to secure a recommended cash offer for Biffa and any offer, if made, would be at a significant premium to its share price immediately prior to the approach on Sept 4. When you think back to September and we were on here pulling our hair out at 220 wouldn't it have been great if the tea lady present at the above meeting had come on here and said,'i don't know if you lot are interested but today some guys came to the office ..............

theband: Shirley thats waste into profit the way i read it ?? Biffa July 25th, 2007 | Market whispers | No comments. UBS moves to neutral from reduce with a price target of 290p from 270p. Broker says: 'FY 07 results in June marked the third cut to our Biffa estimates post-demerger, with our estimates now c10% lower vs demerger. Since listing, Biffa's share price has underperformed the sector by 13%, with Biffa's lower share price driven by earnings cuts primarily in the Collection division. At these levels, we believe downside risk is more limited.'

ialwayswinatmonopoly: From my experience I can say with some confidence that the interim shareprice movement has nothing to do with the company performance or any other fundamentals. Share prices move down after they have moved up. Sometimes share prices move up because they have moved down. Despite any rationale share prices move in an uncanny predictable way. Formations show anticipated future moves. There is no reason for this other than perhaps that generally people commonly believe in emerging trend which then fuels the formation and ultimately the prediction. Fundamentals are ok for long term trading. If a company is well placed in it's market and is managed well then it will outperform but this takes months if not years to emerge and to then be reflected in the share price. On the other hand the behaviour of share prices and in particular graphs follow typical and predictable interim trends. Go long on fundamentals and short on graphs.

watwungyi: Technically speaking, yesterday spike was accompanied by healthy volume and I think it's a good sign that share price has reached a new higher level. Probably stay here for a while, or who knows? I regularly checked the two websites, Biff and Veoliauk. And each time I am satisfied that Biff's been doing really well. Amount of landfill sites are limited and Biff has about 10 - 15 % of overall landfill sites in UK. The one and only thing we should be reminded is that ~75% of its revenue are from industrial and commercial sectors, like WHSmith, DSGI(Currys, PC world etc), while Veolia has taken up more into municipal areas. I think Biff is also expanding its market shares in municipal area. But Biff has not as many subsidiaries as Veolia althouhg Veolia's margin and ROCE is slightly better, but in terms of quality of earning Biff seems more attractive. Collection division is the highest earner and this is the most important one I think because first it has good network of colleciton routes all over the country and it supplies raw materials for resource recovery and landfill later. But the drawback is there are so many competitors in this division and no strong barrier of entry. (You just need a licence and a truck to collect waste really) But landfill and recycling has higher barrier of entry. The fact that this company's been awarded soil replenishing award?? is good for future potential award of new landfill sites. Also the company update its web page regularly which is lacking in others. (Veolia, SETA owned by Suez from France) It's glass recycling program might prove popular among shops and pubs. So I believe management is doing their best. First there's no exercise of options reported so far. They increase their stake at market price. But it's difficult to work out P/E now as the full year result has not come out and due to its recent demerger fro Strent. But interim results are strong enough to push this higher. We need to wait for particularly two annnouncement, first is openign of new landfill site in NIreland, which should have been announced last month, don't know why? Second is trading update for the second quarter, which should further help. For takeover, this is unlikely as the CEO said on the day interim was announced on Bloomberg that they thoroughly enjoy being independent, which I think is the best thing so far. Let's not ourselves drawn into takeover mania cruuently fashioning here due to cheap credit. I tried to work out its values in details a few weeks ago. My assumption is that if its revenue growth grows 5-6% a year and become steadier after four five years, it's share price are hughely undervalued. I was in since 260 in November. So that proved to be a good recent buy and I intend to hold this for years to come and adding more on the way. In waste industry, the priority is to use less waste, then recycle only then send to landfill sites, But it's already difficult to make people use less waste.
