How are they going to bounce when there's an agreed bid at 185p and no sign of any other bid? I think it's a done deal.

Sold mine this morning, doesn't look like there'll be a competing offer so I'll put the money to use elsewhere.

From the last annual report, released 10 March 2010 "Subsequent to the year end Delta EMD Limited has commenced a process intended to realise shareholder value through a disposal of the Delta EMD business, Delta EMD Limited's last remaining operation. The disposal process is well underway with considerable interest indicated." Delta own 56.4% of EMD a leading global supplier of electrolytic manganese dioxide (EMD) used in the manufacture of disposable batteries worldwide.In the last year to 31 December 2009 EMD have made an £11mln profit. regards

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 24 March 2010 Delta plc ("Delta") Preliminary approach The Board of Delta confirms that it received yesterday a preliminary approach from a third party about the possibility of a competing offer for Delta and that discussions with the third party have commenced. There can be no certainty that a competing offer will ultimately be made or as to the terms of any competing offer if made. A further announcement will be made when appropriate. Rainmaker - 20 Mar'10 - 00:50 - 466 of 470 edit Thank you, an interesting piece Cornishman. The market is agreeing with them since the Delta share price has continually traded at a premium to the bid price. I fully expect to see an improved offer or a competing bid as the offer is too cheap on fundamentals eg approx £300mln for a Company with cash flow generated from operations of £86.4mln regards

Probable 210p eventual takeout price by valmont suggested by analysts maybe substantially increased in a competetive situation that we may now have.Fingers crossed!

.. (from crystal amber) the Fund acquired its original holding of 2.5 million shares in Delta from mid-December until mid-February at an average price of 145p. In January, Crystal Amber met management and presented proposals aimed at releasing embedded value within the business. At the beginning of March it was the subject of an agreed bid by Valmont at 185p (the dividend of 4.8p for 2009 was cancelled a few days before pay date). The current share price is 191p. ...the fund manager He sent the attached letter yesterday. His letter points out that the Delta board did not update the market on their better than expected 2009 earnings before publishing full year prelims on 8 March (actual eps was 17% ahead of the Arden estimate). He believes this was surprising given that Delta issued a post-close trading update on 26 January. Richard thinks the offer clearly undervalues the business as evidenced by the fact that Valmont's stock market worth has already risen by more than the enterprise value (market cap less net cash) of Delta plc and thinks that cancelling the 4.8p dividend for 2009 just 4 days before it was declared was not the correct way to treat shareholders. ..... a note from the Arden analyst who says: "I also published on Delta in January highlighting the value and long term strategic options for this group. I would note that I valued the business between 199p to 226p and placed a medium term price target of 195p. This was all before the results came out so far ahead of expectations."

Another way of looking at the £284mln bid by Velmont is to work out the enterprise value ie subtract net cash of £146.9mln to arrive at a value of £137.1mln, and as annual pre tax profits for 2009 were £52.6mln, in effect Velmont is paying just over twice annual pre tax profits for the actual business which is derisory. Furthermore I feel it is safe to assume that we aren't at the top of the economic cycle so profits will increase further-from the annual report- "The Group's 2009 results demonstrate the strength of the Group's market positions and management. Against a backdrop of more difficult economic conditions, the Group provided a further year of earnings growth, as well as substantial cash flows." regards

Good read TC2. Glad they're holding off accepting the offer. Only wish they gave an indication of what they thought a reasonable offer price would be but suppose they wouldn't really wish to say in the article. I'm happy to hold out as beleive the company is worth more. Good luck.

Not that I know of, but I am holding fire on accepting the offer until greater clarity is available.

Give it a chance. They haven't even dispatched the offer circular yet. It's not a final offer so can be raised if needed. Personally, I think we'll at least get the final dividend reinstated.
