FSG certainly have a contract but it will only be the up front payment ie. licence that will be guaranteed. I think it said the second payment expectation was based on transactional revenues. There certainly is less likely to be much of those coming through now

Bloomie - 29/1/11: U.K. high street banks may shut services aimed at giving financial advice to customers, following a decision by Barclays Plc, as they face higher costs for providing advice, the Financial Times reported, citing a report by Malcolm Kerr of Ernst & Young. The Financial Services Authority will impose a ban on commissions paid by product providers in 2013. Under the changes implemented by the FSA, financial advisers will have to be more qualified, driving up the cost to banks for training, the FT said.

Felix, Looking at the chart it'd now be c.40p if Standard Life hadn't come in. The fear would have been that the mega wealth managers were pulling out and leaving it to the IFAs. A lucky escape.

I see Barclays have pulled out of Financial planning. Wasn;t Barclays the bank that gave FSG the mega order? Was the Focus product for its IFAs or something else at the bank? Just a curious thought from a happy shareholder who has trousered lots of cash this week from Standard Life. I expect in the years to come that Standard Life will mess it all up, lose interest and the mgt will buy it back for a song and SL will have a big write off. If this Barclays thing means the cancellation of a mega contract then its a good start for them lol.

nd1976....Whether you accept or not is your choice. That is shareholders voting ? I cannot see any shareholder wanting to remain as a minority if the acceptance level goes above 75% though which it is a near certainty to do.

138 are sells - getting quoted that on selftrade. TDW 137 . Don;t need cash at present so may as well wait for the 140 . Will hold off for a few days for acceptance on my lots. Always a chance a competitor might try and buy 25% to make life hard for SL.

"On 7 December 2010, the boards of Standard Life plc ("Standard Life") and Focus Solutions Group plc ("Focus") announced that they had reached agreement on the terms of a recommended cash offer to be made by Standard Life for the entire issued and to be issued share capital of Focus. Standard Life is today publishing and posting to Focus Shareholders (and, for information only, to participants in the Focus Share Option Schemes) a document (the "Offer Document"), containing the full terms and conditions of the Offer, together with the relevant Form of Acceptance. The Offer is open for acceptances until 1:00 pm (London time) on 31 December 2010. " It's open for acceptance -and I think it's highly unlikely it won't go through.

I have a feeling those 138 are buys. Looking at what the market makers having taken on the books at 1.35-1.37 its quite a large chunk of the company, meaning its slightly easier for someone to counter the bid if they wanted to. Not that it zould hppen though?

The only way that the company is not going into the hands of SL is if a third party or rival bidder now decides to buy 25% of the company to have a blocking stake. It would be pretty obvious if that starts happening.

Given how cheaply they went, I'm still surprised Mastek didn't bid given they said they had up to 50mill to spend on acquisitions.
