Norbert, I think you are on the wrong thread. If you are on about Elixir try ELP on search.

The lights are glowing pretty brightly at the moment, with no obvious reason. Share price up from a shabby 2.2p when they exited from AIM to currently an exciting 11p! Not sure how many folk held on after the AIM departure but I'm glad I did. Going to cash in shortly, if only I could find that certificate...

As the last one out, I guess I should turn out the lights. Anyone know where the switch is?

I'm not sure metaphysics ever had any answers or that they could be useful. Banks are not cheap.

Grg. Just like Metaphysics, the answers come after both their usefulness and the importance of the questions has evaporated ;o] What about swapping fools for falls and opening the thread to the follies perpetrated with the EXit money. I've already lost loads buying cheap Banks!

Mad. sounds like back office panic at risk of court decision, presumably will now be honoured . If not Brokers first then FSA.

Similar in Sunday Times: http://business.timesonline.co.uk/tol/business/industry_sectors/natural_resources/article4187594.ece As the Telegraph put it: "Halliburton had refused to agree the terms of an auction and had refused to provide an indication of the price it was offering until 20 minutes before Friday's midnight deadline, claimed sources close to the situation. They added that Halliburton's decision to lodge a bid through a scheme of arrangement rather than as an unconditional offer had added to the uncertainty." I reckon you take what you've got in this market - anti-trust approved, all cash, done in a fortnight. Halliburton should have put in a knock-out bid if they really wanted it (and before 11.40pm).

Investor fury at 'cut-price' Expro takeover Last Updated: 2:22am BST 22/06/2008 http://www.telegraph.co.uk/money/main.jhtml?xml=/money/2008/06/22/cnexpro122.xml

It's a pity some other oil service company didn't bid (thamestrader's, for example).

Cheers again. Must admit I'm divided: on the one hand they could have got a significantly higher price via an auction (and it could have been from Umbrellastream). On the other hand, it would have dragged it on longer, the markets could have got worse, & after months of anti-trust dithering there might have been no bid at all. Think £16.15 in a few weeks is the right outcome overall. If Halliburton were so keen, the fools should have put in a knock-out offer.

Oh, by the way: On the basis of the expected Effective Date of 26 June 2008, the settlement of the cash consideration under the Scheme will be effected on or before 10 July 2008.

It seems quite clear that, for whatever reasons, Expro didn't want to be taken over by Halliburton (who would?). What effect this will have on their commercial relations (for example, they have a large joint contract with Petrobras: http://www.exprogroup.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=281&Itemid=36 ) will be Candover's problem . . . except in the unlikely event that their bid does not go through.

OK read it again, very interesting. Lots of bleating from Halliburton about how EXR had agreed in principle to this auction process, that Umbrellastream had agreed to it too, & seemingly all Hallib. thought they had to do was put in a slightly increased offer. But reading between the lines - EXR weren't sure Halliburton's offer would get anti-trust approval, so going to auction & them winning it COULD have meant no deal at all. Hence I think that's why they decided to go with the already-approved 1615p cash offer, rather than a higher offer that may yet have come to nothing.

grgkecer, huge thanks for that. Ridiculous though - Halliburton were willing to go higher than +10p over Umbrellastream! But seems they had their bluff called - they thought by pitching the offer just a tiny bit higher, the EXR board would agree to an auction process. Instead, EXR stuck with the 1615p and Halliburton have walked away. Not saying I'm disappointed with that; but I'm disappointed Halliburton took until the last sec (after many many weeks, in fact a ridiculous amount of time) to give EXR a not particularly great ultimatum, which they then turned down. Anyone know when the 1615p gets sent out? Sounds like quite soon. All those buyers at around 1675 yesterday going to be licking their wounds, but wish I'd sold..

Is that it then? Do they have until midnight? Do holders only get £16.15? Looked to be well bought & closed at highs today, presumed someone was in the know...

From CNN: "The increased offer will put pressure on U.S. giant Halliburton Co. (HAL), which has until June 20th to put in a further bid. Its earlier offer at 1,525 pence a share valued Expro at GBP1.7 billion."
