thatched: As the 5.75 has been rejected as undervaluing the Company I assume that there must be more upside either through an increased offer or the share price increasing to its full value.

thatched: My own belief is that the take out price should be nearer £7.00. Whilst £6.00 would seem a fair market share price valuation level for the private investor, it does not give much premium for the fact that whoever acqiures it is taking a large profitable and more importantly established company with longstanding profitable contracts and the personal contacts which go with them. I'm probably completely wrong and it will go for £5.00. I usually am!

simon gordon: I read that the Better Schools programme was proceeding more slowly than expected. I would not have thought that is the reason for the recent sell off. The water contracts that are a problem are relatively small. The sell off has been marked by fairly light volume - down 20p today on double digit volume. Forward P/E is around 10.5. It could bounce hard if there is no fire under the smokey share price.

gears: XZARR You ask questions about the company and then tell us about inside sources. This sounds political.If you want to comment on the results and record order book go ahead.With institutions buying any loose stock and the share price at a high the share options will keep most staff happy.

red army: Initially the share price should go to £3.65 based on the sector pe of 20. THE RESULTS ARE DUE ON 19/3. Someway to go before then.

chrisg: Mikedehest – if you want the reference for the accounting rules on goodwill, I direct your attention to Financial Reporting Standard 10, published by the Accounting Standards Board in December 1997. The official title is [FRS10] Goodwill and Intangible Assets. It runs to some 40-odd pages and you really should familiarise yourself with it before you start posting absolute rubbish about Enterprise plc’s accounting policy. So far as the rest of your post is concerned, it is so obviously deliberately malicious to Enterprise plc that I shan’t waste my time seeking to dignify it with a response. If ever there was a case for readers of this thread to do their own research, then this is surely it. However, I note you accuse me of pumping the shares. What a load of bunkum and lies. For you to make such an accusation is to change the meaning of words in the English Language. Firstly, I have never exhorted people to buy these shares and I have never even said they represent good value. Secondly, I have stated quite categorically on the ETR thread entitled "Growth" that I do not hold these shares, and, thirdly, I have also stated quite clearly that I think the share price is already up with events, which means (though it should not be necessary to spell it out) that there is no merit in buying these shares anyway because there is nothing to go for. All of which shows how little regard you have for the truth, and how much you seek to simply twist and distort the truth to cast everything to do with Enterprise, and people whio disagree with you, as totally disreputable and dishonest. Well, I'm not going to sink to the gutter and give the rest of your comments the credibility which any kind of response at all would give them. Goodbye.

chrisg: mikedehest - your post no. 5 above is both wrong and misleading. You say that "hardly any of the Goodwill that was paid over to the profiteers in Arm has been depreciated. If it had been, there would have been a big loss for the half year." But that is quite simply untrue. A full and proper charge for amortisation of goodwill was made in the interim accounts. It is standard practice that goodwill on acquisitions is written off in equal instalments over 20 years. Fact. The balance sheet shows goodwill of £76m. Over 20 years, that equates to an annual charge for amortisation of £3.8m, and therefore the charge for the latest six month period should be half that, namely £1.9m. And if you look at the P&L account for the latest six months, you will find that the amortisation is, hey presto, £1.9m. A full and proper charge! You also refer to the negative net asset value. But, as you say, that is after deducting Goodwill, which very clearly and obviously has a value. And if you are saying that the company has negative net tangible assets, well, so what? If you just a tiny amount of research, you will find that a number of very major companies have the same feature, and it hasn't stopped them doing very well. Just for example, Compass Group had negative net tangible assets before its takeover by Granada. You say that “a 4-year order book doesn't mean much at all”, but again that is a totally misleading comment because the company have not said they have a four year order book!! The company have announced that they have forward orders of in excess of £600m, but you will know as well as anyone else that the contracts will be for differing periods before expiry. Some contracts will expire within twelve months, and some will run for rather more than four years years. And that is significant, because the nature of the kind of contracts would run for that kind of period. Remember, we are not talking about PFI contracts which run for 20 or 30 years. Enterprise is no in that kind of business. But it does have good and solid long term business, which gives a lot of forward visibility in terms of confidently being able to forecast profits and the growth in them. Your postings above and also on the “enterprise results” thread seem to be deliberately misleading and/or untrue, and can be proved to be so (as I have done). You claim to be a shareholder in the company, but if that is true, and if you truly think the company is as bad as you state, it staggers the imagination as to why you haven’t sold out before now, when the share price was rather higher than it is now!

chrisg: Unfortunately, mikedehest, that just simply is not true. Click on News for this company, and you will see that every single month this year, there has been an informative announcement by the company. Whether it be an acquisition, the disposal of property, Chairman's statement at the AGM, results, or even the announcement of the date of future results (which latter announcement the company is not even obliged to make). And that ignores all the other news releases about exercise of options and additional listings. It is sad but true that every other thread on this company seems to bring out people who seem to have axe to grind about this company, most of which seems to go back to the time when it was Lancashire Enterprise, and had dealings with Lancashire Council. I have no idea what is behind this, and for all I know, there may have been some questionable people involved at the time. Sadly, it is the negative postings which always crop up on threads about this company which are questionable now. Enterprise is now an aggressively run company, quite different from what went on before, and run by quite different people, and I have come across some of the people behind Enterprise at a Sketchley AGM a while back. This was because the core business of the current Enterprise plc group is ARM, which was previously owned by Sketchley, and then sold back to the people who reversed it into what is now Enterprise. I have no shareholding in this company, because I think the share price is well up wth events but keep a watching brief because I've met the people running the show, and I understand the industry. Results are out later this morning, so we shall see how good or bad they are very shortly now (about six hours time!).

mikedehest: Hard to know what is the intellectual property of ETR. By that I mean, what does it have to set it above other companies that stretch wires between poles and put pipes in trenches - Ryan, etc. Much of the glass fibre under our roads is unlit. The delay in moving to 3rd. gen. wireless will mean not much fibre going in at present. Despite the rise in the share price, I can't see our profits going up soon. I wonder if it isn't contrived so that employee options, from a year or two back, can be taken up and cashed at a nice litle profit. If so, the buble will burst and we may be back to 140p. It will be intesting to see what the 3%+ shareholders do when a slide starts.
