ITW not cooked yet in Enodis bidding battle

Illinois Tool Works Inc. CEO David Speer will have to dig deeper into his pockets if he wants to pull off his company's biggest acquisition in almost a decade.

|Come on ITW - You know you want it!|
|we may get a bidding war and the stock could hit 310p, on weakness I'm going to try and pick some more up but not to chase it up.|
|Share price 12p over the last offer
Nearly 6 million shares traded so far this morning
300p offer from Manitowoc or a third party?|
|EGM on 18th June 2008 for ITW offer.
Payment by 29th August 2008.|
|Manitowoc Company or Illinois Tool Works?

3rd bid from Electrolux?|

Well done to those that held on.|

He added that companies normally circumvent antitrust issues by selling the particular division in question.|
|Looks like a bear trap to me.|
|People who have been here longer than me have seen this happen a couple of times before bids got rejected.
I'm not sure what to do either.|
|Looks a generous offer
There may be problems with too large a market share in kitchen equipment|
|hmm, still 20% in it ... any views on the risk ?|
|Is this for real or will the Board reject it?|
