|Cheques were supposed to go out before the end of the year, within 14 days of 15/12/10 which was over a week ago. Has anyone seen anything yet?|
|It always come back to fundamentals!
|insiders made a killing IMHO|
|Yup - now trading at 63.75 / 65.75 with 65p on the table. So unless you absolutely have to have the money now (so you can lose it on something else), then I guess most holders will wait for the 65p.|
|Looks like i missed the boat here. Damn it.|
|You won't have them for long.
The Group is exploring numerous alternatives to raise capital including private and public equity issuances and working capital credit lines with certain financial institutions as well as its largest shareholder, UTC. Discussions with UTC are ranging from providing credit support for a working capital line to equity purchases. During these discussions, UTC submitted to Clipper a non-binding indication of interest to acquire all of the ordinary shares of the Group not currently owned by UTC.
United Technologies Corporation ("UTC") has recently submitted a new non-binding indication of interest to purchase the remaining issued shares at a significant premium to the September 23, 2010 market trading price (about 34p); discussions with UTC are ongoing and there is no assurance the parties will reach agreement on a transaction that can be recommended to shareholders.|
|this is in been bought|
|DO they have off-shore techonology?
if answer is yes, then it should be in Gamesa buying list
|Boy, did HSBC get this one wrong.|
|reamrkable what an article in the sunday times can do for the share price. for those that did not see it suggested that United Tech who bought in at £1.80 would not want to let this fail and could seek to buy out the rest....speculative but it may have triggered buying yesterday.|
|Odd bounce from the free fall... wonder if a bid is forthcoming!|
|Because it's not going up.
(Or, put another way, because those that invested earlier aren't seeing loads of capital gain, they're getting out to try elsewhere).|
|Any idea why this keeps going down?|
|The sector's just been given a boost via Vesta.
|Aren't they effectively UTC's puppet, now? The only role for a minority shareholder here is to occasionally act as a cash machine for UTC|
|Time to buy?Views welcome.|
|Well they didn't get any of mine.|

WPD and Clipper join forces for Round 3 offshore bid
German wind power developer WPD has teamed up with US turbine maker Clipper to bid for a 1,350 megawatt (MW) project in the English Channel under the UK's third round of offshore leasing (Round 3).
If their joint tender is successful, the two firms will develop Round's 3's Hastings zone using Clipper's 10MW turbines, which are still under development. The Hastings zone, near the city of Brighton along the UK's southern coast, is the smallest Round 3 zone by surface area.
Achim Berge, WPD's managing director for offshore wind, says the consortium is a good fit because of its experience bringing wind farms to completion quickly.
"The UK government and the Crown Estate expect the bidders to develop offshore wind farms successfully in a short period of time," Berge says. "That is WPD's main competence, which we have proved in recent years."
Founded in 1996, Bremen-based WPD spent its early years focusing on its domestic market of Germany. It has since expanded into the international sphere, with wind projects now stretching from Taiwan to South America, as well as into solar power and biogas.
WPD currently has a project pipeline of around 8,000MW across Germany, Sweden, France, Finland and Italy, including offshore wind farms totalling 2,100MW. WPD is currently working to build Germany's first offshore wind farm, Baltic I, and says it views Round 3 as a perfect opportunity for jumping into the rapidly emerging UK market for offshore wind.
The Hastings zone would mark the first time Clipper's proposed 10MW turbines were put to use.
"Coupling wpd's offshore expertise with the world's largest offshore wind turbine, which offers both economies of scale and technological benefits, will help ensure a successful, long-term project, and provide the UK with an offshore generation showcase," says Clipper chief executive Doug Pertz.
The UK's Crown Estate has opened up nine offshore zones for tenders, which has led to the formation of a number of joint ventures and consortia.|
