|A disastrous judgement this week - a Euro 138m fine is way over the top for a company the size of Coats, whatever they did or did not do. I'm amazed that they are being asked to pay such an enormous sum. What were their lawyers actually doing? I was looking to invest here on the back of NAIT and Oryx comments about the break-up value being significantly in excess of the c30p share price. With this judgement and the massive pension scheme issues, I'm not sure now. Has anyone worked out how much the return is likely to be?|

|Scrip dividend alternative is equivalent to 33.35p per share.|
|Adnams shares now sold|
|hmmm ... it looks like a complex incentive scheme.
it's based on a valuation of Coats rather than on its profits. i don't think there is any mention of profit.
If GPG gets 'controlled' the incentive award kicks in. (iii) a change of control of GPG|
|RNS shows a great incentive to maximise the value of Coats|

"Going, but won't be gone for long
The end of an era at Guiness Peat Group yesterday as Blake Nixon confirmed he would be stepping down as UK executive director at the end of next month after 21 years with the activist investment firm.
The news that he will move to a non-executive role comes after the announcement in February that GPG, established in its present guise in 1990 by Sir Ron Brierley, is to sell off its investment portfolio over the next two to three years and return the cash to investors. The sell-off plan caused plenty of wry smiles in the boardrooms of companies like Young & Co's Brewery, Adnams and Newbury Racecourse that have felt the wrath of Nixon and his colleagues, as itwas launched at the behest of disgruntled GPG shareholders.
But those cracking open a bottle or two of ale to celebrate Nixon's exit may yet choke on their pints. The word is that he is stepping down to set up his own fund with a view to lauching a bid for some of GPG's chicest investments "|
