|All got to be bedded in first takes time and money|
|These acquisitions are strongly earnings enhancing and will result in increased profits and dividends going forward. The share price level now certainly does not reflect potential future profits, that's why we have and are seeing buyers flocking in.|
|Think price will drop back over next couple weeks until new shares listed and absorbedNice profit for city boys and management who get shares at 67pIf price stays aboveThey will take their profit and push price back short term unless drops to listing price before 8th April but long term this will rise over £1|
|Like the Metro Plumb franchise being developed by Metro Rod very much. Nice growth there. Was a bit worried, first off this morning, that Metro Rod was an established business and I couldn't really see the growth in it. But then I saw Metro Plumb. Will have to look at the accounts but I think I'm sticking around. Franchise Brands management is very good after all.
Happy to have bought in at 71p and then all this blew up. (Love Barking Mad as a concept which is what brought me in in the first place.) Was hoping for a string of smaller franchises, smaller than this new one anyway, but hey ho. Nice early profit.|
|It make no odds really, as for me this is a buy and long term hold|
|Trt surely you could have topped up in the book build at 67 p?|
|Barking Mad I am talking about. Could well end up in the blue by the close of play today.|
|This acquisition is hugely earning enhancing I have topped up this morning.|
|This appears to be a way for enserve Ltd to get a listing by reversing into franchise brands!|
|Timeing is everything|
|Yes as mentioned before I thought something was about to happen|
|Must be a big one.|

FRANCHISE BRANDS PLC
("Franchise Brands", the "Group", or the "Company")
Statement re share price movement and suspension of share trading on AIM
Franchise Brands, a multi-brand international franchisor, notes the recent price movement of its shares on AIM and confirms that the Company is in advanced stages regarding a potential acquisition which would constitute a reverse takeover under the AIM Rules for Companies. Whilst the Company has entered into an exclusive agreement regarding the potential acquisition, any transaction remains subject to a number of factors, including completing due diligence and negotiations to the Company's satisfaction, and, as such, there can be no certainty that a final binding agreement will be reached.
The potential acquisition would be consistent with the Company's strategy, as outlined at the time of its recent IPO, to pursue selective acquisitions of complementary franchise businesses that could benefit from the Company's central services and also the experience of the Board and management team in developing franchise businesses.
Should the proposed acquisition proceed, as it would constitute a reverse takeover under rule 14 of the AIM Rules for Companies, shareholder approval will be required. As such, a further announcement with full details of the transaction would be issued at the appropriate time once binding contracts are entered into and an admission document published and sent to shareholders with a notice of general meeting. In accordance with rule 14 of the AIM Rules for Companies, the Company's shares will be suspended from trading on AIM with immediate effect until either publication of the admission document or announcement of the transaction not proceeding.
The Company is also in the process of finalising its audited financial results for the year to 31 December 2016, which are expected to be announced shortly|
