bubface: didn't help much unfortunately! Collins Stewart Europe Limited is stockbroker to Freedom4 Communications and makes a market in its shares. This document is Non-independent Research and a marketing communication. Please see disclaimer for further information Freedom4 Communications UK | Telecoms | FFC LN 16 May 2008 Contact Mark James +44 (0) 20 7523 8401 mjames@collinsstewart.com Recommendation Buy Price 1.66p Post Distribution Target 2.60p FY 2007 results superseded by March distribution Little new news since March Full year results for the year ended December 2007 have been largely superseded by the sale of the hosting business and return of cash to shareholders in March 2008 see our Cash Return note dated 17 March 2008. With limited new news on Wimax network roll out we expect investors may concentrate on the apparent disparity between asset values and the market cap. Current share price places little value on the cash held in escrow.. We set out overleaf our estimate of the assets of F4C at present. The company has around £3m of cash, offset by some commitments to invest into the Wimax JV. Over and above this the company has £17.5m (1.64p a share) of loan notes due from Oakley Capital, repayable within 18 months of issue (April 2008), which it intends to distribute to shareholders via a subsequent distribution, and a further net £10m cash held in escrow (0.93p a share). .. and little value on the Wimax JV Post the cash return F4C also retains its 52% stake in the Wimax JV with Intel. There is nothing in the current share price in our view for this venture. Perhaps this is understandable: the JV has just finished trials, has yet to articulate detailed roll-out plans and the business case for Wimax remains unproven. But at the very least it has option value at these price levels, in our view. 2.60p price target justified on loan notes and escrow cash alone We have set an initial price target of 2.60p: the total of the loan notes and the cash held in escrow and initiate with a Buy rating. Higher valuations are perfectly possible but we suspect investors will want further details of a successful commercial roll out in order for the shares to reach higher levels.

invest ted: This is my take on what the share price will do once the Offer has expired. I likened it to a share going ex-dividend and the Offer of 10p over the current share price is the dividend. (This was done when the share price touched 6p). IF the share price rises over 10p everyone who accepted the offer has taken a shafting on 58% of their shares. Example- You bought 100 shares @ 10p (£10) The price slid to 6p (£6) You got 58% @ 10p under the offer (£5.80) (a 4p per share premium) You then have 42 shares remaining @ 6p ( £2.52) Your £10 is now worth £8.32 After the offer has expired (like a share going Ex-Dividend) the price may fall by the value of the offer, so the 6p could drop by as much as 1.5p (4p premium is 60% premium to current share price). Making your remaining 42% worth £1.89 Add the offer proceeds (£5.80) to remaining shares (£1.89) makes your return on the original £10 invested = £7.69.

nickcduk: Expect the share price to fall to about 1p following the tender offer being confirmed. Not exactly sure what has caused the share price to spike up as it has over the last few days but might hazard a guess that all stock on loan is being called in ahead of the tender. Seemed to be a fair amount of stock on loan which suggests shorters are being squeezed hard. Not a massive amount of stock is available due to it already being tendered. IG have amended their acceptance date and you can cancel your instruction before the end of play today if you fancy selling in the market now.

stevi1111: Invest Ted - 28 Mar'08 - 17:08 - 379 of 386 Thinking out loud here, just suppose- You bought 100 shares @ 10p (£10) The price slid to 6p (£6) You got 58% @ 10p under the offer (£5.80) (a 4p per share premium) You then have 42 shares remaining @ 6p ( £2.52) Your £10 is now worth £8.32 After the offer has expired (like a share going Ex-Dividend) the price may fall by the value of the offer, so the 6p could drop by as much as 1.5p (4p premium is 60% premium to current share price). Making your remaining 42% worth £1.89 Add the offer proceeds (£5.80) to remaining shares (£1.89) makes your return on the original £10 invested = £7.69. ............................ Looks good to me Invest-Ted..... Just imagine if you bought the 100 shares at 6p though(or even 6.7p) You might just make yourself a steady overall profit.

brad44: Hi Tiltonboy, below is what I received from I>I>I I elect to accept the Tender Offer on my holding of xxxxxx FREEDOM4 COMM ORD GBP0.001 shares. (which was the full quantity of shares held and the option I took) I elect to accept the Tender Offer on a number of FREEDOM4 COMM ORD GBP0.001 shares. Please enter the total quantity of shares required: You have the following options: 1 Accept the Tender Offer on your holding of FREEDOM4 COMM ORD GBP0.001 shares. If you elect to accept the Offer, your FREEDOM4 COMM ORD GBP0.001 shares will not be available for you to sell, unless this Offer lapses. 2 Accept the Tender Offer on part of your holding of FREEDOM4 COMM ORD GBP0.001 shares. If you elect to accept the Offer, your FREEDOM4 COMM ORD GBP0.001 shares on which you have accepted the Offer will not be available for you to sell unless this Offer lapses. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The Directors believe that the Tender Offer is an appropriate means of returning Capital to shareholders. The Minimum Tender Price of GBP0.10 per Ordinary share represents a 49 per cent premium to the mid market price of an Ordinary share on 13th March 2008. The Maximum Tender Price of GBP0.11 per Ordinary share represents a 63 per cent premium to the mid market price of an Ordinary share on 13th March 2008. The total number of Ordinary shares purchased pursuant to the Offer will not exceed 1,576,372,852 Ordinary shares. As such, elections may be subject to scaling back. Insofar as any shareholders tender fewer Existing Ordinary shares than they are entitled to under the Tender Offer, then the monies thereby arising will be used to increase the Tender Price payable to those shareholders who have Tendered their shares. Any increase in the Tender Price will however be limited such that no shareholder shall be paid in excess of a total of GBP0.11 per Ordinary share. Should you choose to Tender your shares under the Offer, the cash is expected to be credited to your account on or around 18th April 2008. We will notify you when the cash has been credited to your account. Before making any decision please take into consideration all relevant factors of the event including the current share price and any possible tax implications. If you require any further information in making your decision please contact an Independent Financial Advisor. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- If you do not wish to accept the Offer then you should take no action. Please ensure you submit your option before 27 March 2008 to enable us to process your instruction in accordance with the Company's timetable for this event. I still think what you said is correct.

davius: Steve, if the post offer share price is 0.6p as some suggest, or even 2p+ as I estimate, you'll be down a whole pile of cash as the 58% of the shares you could have received 10p for will be worth whatever the new price is. If you want to retain your holding, you could take the 10p per share offer and then pump the cash back into FFC, unless the new share price is 10p or higher you'll end up with more shares. If you don't take the cash then it will be shared out among those that do accept the offer, there's no benefit to the company by you declining the offer. That said, I'm not a financial advisor and confess to being a 'Jonny come lately' to this deal so if in doubt take formal financial advice.

davius: Some comments from the documents (thanks for the link): "Who is eligible to participate in the Tender Offers? The Tender Offers are open to all Qualifying Shareholders who are on the Register at 5.00 p.m. on 3 April 2008 (the "Record Date")." From what I have read the price is highly likely to be 10p a share, as it only increases to take account of anyone that doesn't take up the tender offer, and you'd either be barking mad or indisposed (and I suspect they'll be a very few of each) to not take up the offer. "How many Ordinary Shares will there be in issue after the Tender Offers? This will depend on the number of Ordinary Shares that are successfully tendered. Assuming that all the Option Holders and Warrant Holders exercise their respective Basic Entitlements in full and the Tender Offers are fully subscribed and accepted by Collins Stewart (and that Collins Stewart exercises all Call Options granted to it) the number of Ordinary Shares in issue following the Tender Offers is expected to be 1,011,877,169." With just over 1bn shares in issue after the tender a 0.6p share price would make the remaining company worth £6m. That seems way too low given that there are a further £20m of loan notes, plus some cash and assets. I'd guess at a minimum of 2p. So my example of buying 100K shares. Current price of £6500.00 + costs (SP down to 6.5p at the close), cash return of £5800.00 mid April, net investment £700.00. 42K of shares @ 2p each would be £840.00, net profit of £140.00. Probably not worth the bother to a new investor, hence may explain why the share price is falling back a tad. Unless the remaining business is estimated to be worth 3p or more, which is possible. Were the current share price to dip to say 6p per share then I'd definitely take the punt though on the basis of aquiring 'virtually free' shares in the remaining business.
