Interesting to see the mid-price now above the 125p offer price. Hopefully indicative of something happening...

Exactly Graham. As I said in an earlier post, DBAY are not a trade buyer - they are an "investment value advisor". I daresay if someone else came in with a decently higher offer they wouldn't be averse to taking the money and running.

But with DBAY already holding a significant amount, the chance of another offer is relatively low - unless DBAY are playing the market and trying to flush out an offer high enough to make it worth their while to unload.

The other point here is that for European agencies - I'm thinking particularly of Havas - CRE is a lot cheaper to buy now than it was a few months ago given the pound's weakness. I'm holding to see what happens, as at worst the DBAY offer will go through and at best....a bidding war! Well, we can hope anyway....

Cheers QS99. This analyst comment below backs up my thoughts that 125p is an absolute steal - the usual industry multiple would be 50% higher than this, equating to a price of around 180p. Perhaps we may yet get further action here. DBAY are an "investment value advisor" - I daresay if someone else came in with a decently higher offer they wouldn't be averse to taking the money and running: "1001 GMT Shares in Creston jump 31% to 123p after the advertising and public relations company agreed to be bought by funds controlled by its shareholder, the investment management company DBAY Advisors for 125p a share. The price, which values the company at GBP75.8 million, equates to an enterprise value of around 5.5 times Ebitda, which is well short of the "reasonable industry multiple" of 8 times Ebitda, says N+1 Singer analyst Jonathan Barrett. Has a buy rating and 135p target price."

I wonder if all are happy with this tho.....not a huge amount of irrevocables....Riv sums it up well IMO

....DBAY offer finally happened.. Small/low premium imho. Shareholders phps had a fair downside risk if another bad trading RNS issued (happened before) but only a small upside gain 30%.....for me it was a bad/dull risk reward.... At least Don Elgie made at least 6M out of Creston imho via benefits and shares !! ---- (Always a concern for me at such moments is whether any dirs agreement gets 'bought' by any secret deal from the buyer, although phps not applicable this time)

Well I think it's a low price but I only bought recently for under £1 so i'm happy enough with a >25% gain.

Riv, more a long term comment.....take a look at Cre share price over the last dozen years or so. Yeah today ok, far from impressive but ok. Anyway I'm not in, I just watch the stick as a small hobby having had years of disappointment. I actually got in just after the reverse takeover so for a few years made good money. Anyway all the best

Well Riv not quite the 130 from Edison, but hopefully you're out with a profit mate. GL Am sure it will be dismantled and somebody will finally make good money from what's been a forever lacklustre poorly run business

Disappointing results is the rumour.....Cre have specialised in under delivering over the years hence the p/e

Results on the 17th but - more importantly - no warning which confirms they're way too cheap.
