HP - that's what I thought until I saw this: 'In order that Richard Farleigh does not become bound by the provisions of the Takeover Code to make a mandatory cash offer for the entire issued share capital of the Company, he has irrevocably undertaken to tender all of the Ordinary Shares held by him in the Tender Offer. Richard currently holds 18,435,160 Ordinary Shares, representing approximately 29.4 per cent. of the existing issued share capital of the Company.' I'm just curious because I'm following Light Blue Optics who I have a suspicion were working with csd. LBO have said they'll have a laser picoprojector available by the end of the year, and if they do (I'm rather sceptical) and the price is reasonable it could be a very successful mass-market product. If it held some csd technology they might do very well from it. A lot of 'if's and 'mights', and I can't imagine csd wanting to go private just before they made some money, but I was a little curious what was motivating those people who still held shares. I continue to watch with interest.

Farleigh. He'll still have about 30% after the tender.

Directors' Intentions Each Director who holds Ordinary Shares has confirmed to the Company that they will be tendering all of their Ordinary Shares in the Tender Offer. Its revealing that ALL the directors tendered ALL their shares. It shows how much confidence they have in future prospects.

I sold my 140,000 this morning at approx 14.6p. Only 72% being tendered at 15.25p so I prefer to sell the lot now. I suppose still a chance CSD will be successful as a private company but not on the evidence so far.

As a result the Board of ClearSpeed has also today announced that it intends, inter alia, to return GBP6.9m of cash by way of a tender offer at 15.25 pence per share and shareholders' approval to cancel admission of the ordinary shares of ClearSpeed to trading on AIM. A circular containing details of the proposals is being sent to shareholders today to seek shareholders' approval at the forthcoming General Meeting to be held on 21 May 2009. Copies of the circular will be shortly made available from ClearSpeed's website, www.clearspeed.com. For details of the proposals, please refer to the circular.

It's a weird sort of business fishing around in these bombed out stocks I have to say. I can understand a few hundred quid for a laugh, but as a serious investment I definitely struggle. There was a time when this was a serious company with serious products addressing a serious market and at that time I thought I had at least a weak grip on what it represented as an investment opportunity. Nowadays I haven't a clue what's happening and what drives the share price Fun to watch and I wish all holders better luck than most have so far had, but I'm glad I'm on the sidelines, especially when so many depressed small caps seem to be moving towards their real values.

Wishful thinking probably. Then again depends what you count as good. I averaged down at 7-8p and a cash return of 14p-15p is possible. And still a possibility of a bid.

Better to travel in hope ... Seriously, do you have any real information (not hope, expectation, carefully calculated prediction etc etc) to indicate that something good will happen here?

I didnt consider a tender offer but in hindsight its probably the best and likeliest solution. Thats what CMR Fuel Cells have done, pricing the tender offer at around cash levels. And I wonder if BAE would be interested in making an offer. They licensed the technology for $1M recently.

I dont think so. We can make an educated guess and Id think 8p-12p cash back. I think its simplest to look at net working capital position which was £16M at end of June. This included £13.9M cash and £1.9M tax credit receivable. The operating loss for H2 was £4.5M but that included 2 major restructurings (heard this from the company today). So lets say £16-£4.5= £11.5M. I think also prudent to write off 2/3 of inventories so that gives us effectively £10.5M or 17p per share of cash. Lets say the imminent restructuring costs knocks £0.5M off that and we have 16p per share cash. We know operating costs are running at under £3M. If you add interest then cash burn , assuming zero revenues, is now about £2.5M per annum (4p per share). I reckon they will aim to half that. So OK this is pretty simplistic but they can return 10p-12p per share cash now and leave the business with 2-3 years to somehow realise value from the ip, sell the business , whatever etc etc.

once we get a picture of liabilities , then a realistic calculation can be made of excess cash, looking at last accounts a return of 2/3p to shareholders is likely .

Given the amount of money BAE for instance have spent here, they can't be said to have a huge financial stake at risk, although the technology may be more strategically important to them than the price implies. If that's the case, they might I guess be interested in buying the relevant IP and the development team with it, which would provide a clean exit for all concerned. I'm a bit surprised the price has dropped today. Personally I think the MMs may have misread this one.

I can't see them continuing as a viable company in any shape or form. They once had a brief window of opportunity, but as the link I posted above and the recent results show, that window has now firmly closed. Ultimately I think it depends on what Farleigh wants, and looking around the markets, I have to say it's a great time to have cash in hand. So I think he'll sell what he can - IP and existing customers - hopefully using it to leverage employees into new jobs, and close down the whole operation. At some point it's better to just accept that pushing water uphill doesn't work and reallocate the funds to something more productive.

Yeah SN its quite interesting now. Farleigh has obviously had enough. They have 17p per share in cash. Im kind of thinking they will return 8p-10p cash to shareholders and then delist with around £4M-£5M in the bank which may be enough for 3 years at rate of losses (after further cost cutting). Gives them time to sell the "business" or, miraculously, create a viable company. Im probably fantasising here but Im still hoping the combination of the technology and the tax losses is going to attract a buyer.

HP - surely this is where it starts to look interesting? Flog off the ip for whatever they can get and add it to a £10M cash pile - could be a nice little bonus for shareholders at this price. If the advfn figures are to be believed (always doubtful I know) csd is trading at half its break-up price....

Game over http://www.investegate.co.uk/Article.aspx?id=200901300736515162M ...As a result of this reduction in the Company's size and the status of its development, the Directors believe that it is no longer appropriate for ClearSpeed to remain as a quoted company. They are therefore considering a number of options including the return of surplus cash to its shareholders and cancelling the admission of its shares to trading on AIM...
