|FWIW cash arrived today
|anyone got their cheque yet?|
|Ooops! Thanks DF.|
|He'll have a job selling. They have been suspended since 19th Dec, and will de-list before 7th Jan. The register will be frozen.|
|In my experience, it usually tends to be close to the 'deadline'. I doubt you'll get it much sooner. If you need cash urgently, you can still sell in the market; you'll only lose a few p of the bid price and your dealing costs.
|Thanks jeffian. I just hope its within a week of the effective date.|

Effective date..............2 January 2008

The board of ICI announces that on 17 December 2007, the Court sanctioned the
Scheme to effect the recommended acquisition of ICI by Akzo Nobel. In order for
the Scheme to become effective in accordance with its terms, the Court must now
confirm the Reduction of Capital at the Court Hearing which is scheduled to take
place on 20 December 2007.
Dealings in ICI Shares on the London Stock Exchange are expected to be suspended
at 5:00 p.m. (London time) on 19 December 2007. It is expected that the Scheme
will become effective on 2 January 2008 and that ICI Shares will cease to be
listed on the Official List and their admission to trading on the London Stock
Exchange will be cancelled at 8:00 a.m. (London time) on 3 January 2008.
Upon completion of the acquisition, holders of ICI Shares will be entitled to
receive 670 pence for each ICI Share held at the Scheme Record Time (6:00 p.m.
(London time) on 19 December 2007) and, to the extent that they are entitled to
receive Loan Notes under the Loan Note Alternative, £1.00 of Loan Notes for each
£1.00 of cash consideration to which they would otherwise be entitled under the
Scheme. Holders of ICI Shares will also receive a second ordinary interim
dividend of 5 pence for each ICI Share held at the Scheme Record Time, in
relation to the period from 1 July 2007 to 31 December 2007, provided that, if
the Effective Date falls prior to 31 December 2007, such dividend will be paid
pro rata by reference to where the Effective Date falls between 1 July 2007 and
31 December 2007.
Elections for Loan Notes have been validly made with respect to 15,640,757 ICI
Shares. Loan Notes for which elections have been made have an aggregate nominal
value of £104,793,072. ICI confirms that this exceeds the minimum threshold of
£20 million in aggregate nominal value of all Loan Notes to be issued as set out
in the Scheme Document.
The Effective Date is expected to be 2 January 2008. Settlement of the cash
consideration and the issue of certificates in respect of the Loan Notes under
the Loan Note Alternative are expected to be effected within 14 days of the
So, not delisted, but trading ceases tomorrow. Delisted on 3rd Jan.|
|Well, as I understand it, its delisted tomorrow so lets hope they got out ...|
|No idea but 11.8% is huge on a company this size.|
|Interesting question Jenny! Only reason to be short would be if competition clearance is problematic. I noticed that EU clearance didn't come through on expected date and no announcements ... any thoughts?|
|Last day of dealing and registration of transfers
is 19th Dec - cancellation of listing is 7th Jan 2008.|
|Hahaha, I'm with you ... especially as not at 662.5 ... hard to credit!
And anyway, what the hell would I do with the money in this market? 1% plus may be a real market beater over the next few months!|
|Yes, but the whole upside's less than 1%! Anything goes wrong with the deal and that extra 1p is going to look a bit expensive.
(Having said that, I hold some and intend to wait for the offer to conclude)|
|I hold a lot of these, and my trading plan was always to start selling at £6.65. Don't really see any reason to move from that at the moment. And when we are talking about a max price move of 6p, well 1p is 16.67% of the upside!|
|What, for 1p on £6.64? Blimey, you fine-tune your investment decisions, T07!|
|Ahhh, but these are serious Dutchmen ... i'm with you DS, for now at least. If it goes above 665, then I may be tempted.|
Two recent situations
1. cs. to tata now that's a yes
2. Sainsbury and the Qataris now thats a no
FWIW I would stay in
|ICI vote a cert.
All that's left is regulatory approvals. Europe & US expected this month, Canada few weeks later.
Interesting dilemma .... whether to hold on for the extra 6p to the bid price and a share of the Final Divi. Thoughts anyone?|
|so is that what we're waiting for now tourist?|
|ICI EGM and Court meeting tomorrow morning.|
