|Surprised at Carling - if he'd just bid say 150p he'd have surely squeezed a few more p out of Landmark for his (& our!) holdings. Perhaps finance made any bid at all an impossibililty.|
|Ah well, c'est la vie|
|No counter-bid then, and Landmark well over 50% acceptances/bid gone unconditional.|
|Certainly getting tight for time.|
|I don't think there is going to be a counter offer, although I hope I'm wrong!|
|Anyone heard anything concerning a counter offer?|
|Ah well,perhaps next week.Cant really see this Co.going as cheap as chips.Come on out there.|
|slowly creeping upwards, come on Mr C, show your hand!|
|I reckon we could see a higher bid,possibly next week.Richard Caring is logged as having purchased 11.5% at an average 200p as of May 2009.We will see,patience my friends.|
|So, three weeks for a counter-bid|
|Interesting that we're sitting so steadily around the offer price - presumably bodes well for a counter-bid|
|The one that got away springs to mind, kicking myself. Well done all who were in, nice job.|
|The article on page 17 of today's FT about the Carluccio bid makes interesting reading.Apparently, no comment yet from Richard Caring who owns 12% of Carluccio and whose stake in the Group gives him not insignificant voting power.
The following Wikipedia profile on Caring makes fascinating reading, especially the middle section of the article which references Caring's noteable interests in the restaurant sector.
All IMO. DYOR.
|looks like a win:win for us.|
|Agreed. I thought this might be a done deal, but Caring hasn't shown his hand yet and might be looking for more or threatening to bid. There might also be other private equity or trade interest.|
|The mkt valuation currently appears to support the idea of a higher bid.|
|OOO..onlu just seen the news...nice..gd profit for me sipp..tvm|
|RTN next, just you watch.|
|It is being reported that Richard Caring has not yet given his support for the bid.|
|Nice to see a big rise when I have held patiently for so long, maybe it should be more and maybe another bid will surface but I suspect this will go through as it stands, we'll see.
Where to reinvest though? When I eat in a Carluccios I felt like I was helping my own shareholding! Need another decent restaurant chain, an undervalued one would be good.|
|I wouldn't be surprised if we see some - the Company is in such a healthy growing, debt free position. Surely a golden opportunity for a few predators?|
