|As for talk of the acquisition, i see it as win win. If ETO fail in their bid then the share price will bounce back. If ETO are successful then it makes them an even bigger target for takeover. Funny how ITV are interested in the same business ETO are!!!|
|Because night time is the right time to fight crime! You can't write this stuff... Oh hang on!|
|The pj masks potential is not fully understood and thus factored in yet, this truly will be everywhere over next 12-24 months, first merchandise now available in stores. I wouldn't even contemplate selling any shares below 400p|
|I've bought some more at just under 221p. Still expecting them to follow through on the potential they showed in the 1H report, and definitely not hoping for another chunky acquisition.|
|I don't think that another acquisition would go down well at the moment.
They need to focus on generating cash and clean after tax profits first.|
|A TV company behind shows such as Question Time and Crufts is up for sale for £300 million.It is understood the Welsh-based Tinopolis, which also produces BT's Premier League and Champions League football coverage, wants to find a new owner.The Guardian has reported that Tinopolis has circulated a memorandum to media owners and private equity firms that says it is considering a sale.Potential bidders are thought to include ITV, Peppa Pig creator Entertainment One and investors MSD Capital.Tinopolis, founded in 1990, also owns sports production business Sunset + Vine.The firm could not be reached for comment.|
|Very keen to hear what they have to say at the end of the month.
As long at they indicate that cash and profits are going to start flowing in this year I will be back in.|
|Netflix has hired Scott Stuber to head up its movie division. Could he make a play for Entertainment one?|
|It's the pokemon way of investing.
Gotta catch em all!|
|Who is Ichimogadishu?|
|Ichimogadishu moved to str buy|
|I see some positive price action over the short term based on technicals|
|Article on Peppa Pig in China. Pretty standard stuff but does mention PJ masks heading for china, new children shows and the 5 year plan for peppa.
"a new brand called PJ Masks with Disney globally, which we’re in discussion with different partners to bring to China"
"We are going to be releasing a new brand on that side every one or two years, to complement the existing two. On the girl’s side, we’ve recently found two concepts, but it would be nice to have another one in the girl empowering space. Where we’re really looking for content more aggressively is on the boy’s action side, in a slightly older demographic of six- to nine-year-old boys and girls.
We’ve just taken on two new comedies to develop and produce. Comedies are slightly less strategic because very few give rise to a licensing and merchandising program."
"How do you plan to grow Peppa over the next five years?
OD: Peppa has been in the UK for 13 years, so that leaves a lot of potential in places like the US, where the licensing program is only in Year Two. China and South East Asia in general is a huge area of opportunity for us. We’d still love to crack Japan at some point. We’re continuing to grow in Europe, in France, Spain and Italy. In Germany, we’ve struggled a bit, but we’re trying to reorganize because it’s very strong on digital there and clearly resonating."
|Thanks - good to know they're planning one and we don't have to wait for the full year results.|
|I contacted investor relations re.the next tu.
'It will be at the end of March,exact date tbc.'
Hope this helps.
|It would be nice to get a TU to see how things are going ahead of year end. January TU 2 years ago, early March last year - and late March 3 and 4 years ago.|
|Strange time to get bored but good luck.|
|Getting bored here - sold 50% of my holding and reinvested proceeds into AHT on this morning's weakness.
|Peppa Pig expanding in the US.

|I've taken advantage of that dip to buy back the shares I sold in October - and at virtually the same price.
Irrespective of ITV's interest, I think the future looks bright for ETO after their 1H results and I hope they convert that 1H promise into a good 2H and an exciting outlook.|
|I think that little drop down was caused by the ITV results webcast where Crozier has just said that ITV has no interest in pursuing EOne further.|
|I agree there Salpara. With the success of Girl on the train at the box office and the pre-christmas sales of the BFG dvd. No large acquistions and no large film purchases that I know of, we should be seeing a decent profit return.
They have always blamed the film division in the past, running out of excuses now.
Also looking for continued success in Family and TV.|
|I am currently not invested as I was unhappy with the half year results but they should hopefully update the market either this week or next.
They really need to start converting all those investment dollars into clean after tax profit and this is the year that it should start coming through.|
|Ben and Holly's the star of ETO's portfolio as far as I'm concerned - absolutely love it. Far better than that piggy thing. If there's anyone who's never watched it, try Chickens Ride West on Youtube...|
|Thanks Robbie not sure if sending kids to sleep is ETO's objective with Ben & Holly though.|
