Am not talking about what ITV would sell off, but whoever bid's would sell off which would depend on the bidder and what parts of ITV could be value added, for instance the production side.

And what bits are those Katie ... the production side in which they have just profit warned despite higher investment levels and where they are being comprehensively out spent by Netflix. Or the advertising side which feels like it's only going to suffer death by a thousand cuts and requires permanent content investment to support it ??

ITV is producing some good stuff these days as well. It's noticeable how the quality has improved.

Whoever bid's for ITV would have the option of selling off the part's they don't want

A good point benson, iTV, now that's weird, because that alone to them would be worth a lotta dough!

Bookbroker we agree, I think content is king, and is becoming more sought after, their are a few big players out there that this would be loose change too, Apple could buy the company for the iTV name alone. There has been a lot of programmed selling in the past 4-5 months for whatever reason, but there are still people on the buy side.

I don't disagree, but this cos. strength is the programming division, advertising is not going away, it is merely seeing a step change in how it is sold, but I disagree with the demise of linear tv, I know TV is evolving, but ITV needs to forge partnerships, the management are aware of the transition taking place in the industry, how long has Malone been here, and in any case he clearly believes that he is an abiding influence here in the event of outside interest! I do tend to think that these are an attractive proposition, it is still an instructional brand within the media business, amazing to look back at how all the regionals amalgamated since the millennium, once there were a dozen or so, now the industry is made up of small independent productions cos. in principle!

bookbroker ITV has been takeover speculation for the past 8+ years, it's going to be a long wait, however it is a good long term growth and dividend play, I got in about 57p a long while ago, and £2 is still a good entry point imho.

But its a gutsy move for anyone to consider taking them over when there is an overwhelming shift away from linear tv to streaming - something indeed cautious7 has been highlighting for the last year. So this means that there is ZERO positive earnings momentum likely to be seen in this business. So unless a purchaser can radically take out costs or achieve large economies of scale a takeover just would not make sense. In my personal opinion Liberty wishes to monetise its 10% shareholding yet there are no takers, despite the shares being hawked around the place for the past eight months

Where is this takeover, we climb each day, and then see weakness, I'm not expecting one, they come straight out the blue, but it's time some corporate action happened here, been discussed so many times that the old chestnut starting to shrink!

They bought the freehold from the NCB Pensions trust, hopefully it'll be worth a good deal more than the £56 mln. they paid, I'm not sure if they still own it, but it would be a valuable asset to turn into condominiums!

Huge and possibly very positive news today is that itv have those week in London signed a JV with Chinese Huace Film and tv ... Se LSE bob for more details if interested. This may be an additional plus to streaming already mentioned with two other partners. Skating on Ice has been a great success for Huace with ITV, and follow ups appear well advanced...so there could be a lot more pluses to come against some doubters here...my guess is that with steady results next week or so the forward momentum will be seen as quite positive. China will influence will grow..just watch this space!

There are lots of things that make up this co., they are taking costs out the business, they know that advertising revenue is declining, I still see it as a good earner, maybe not at the previous rates, but terrestrial TV is not going away, otherwise the BBC licence fee is finished, there is also the external interest here from several potential parties, if and ever they materialise is an aside, but Malone is not here for the pleasure!

I see citi have today reiterated buy recommendation with unchanged price target of 236p....I wonder how much negative expectation or adverse views are already priced in at current levels? The new streaming product is being viewed as a potential strong revenue grower...we shall have to wait and see. Still feel that tv advertising gets better results but others have different views.

Once upon a time PG. a huge name, was party to some info. back in 1985 about some dude called Sorrell reversing a co. called Wire and Plastics Products, Chairman off Panmure at the time McGowan dropped a hint or two, never listened to the advice, mind you he nearly wrote the co. off in the early nineties, did buy some stock at 75p, but then sold them for a 10p a share profit, such is the merits of long term investing!

bookbroker - I concur with your thoughts on Panmure Gordon. They are utterly useless and thoroughly inept, though quite why they are still in business is a mystery. My dealings with that outfit have been most unsatisfactory

Obviously a special dividend is discretionary but it has been paid now for 4 years running and to many it's stupid to call it an irrelevance.

The special dividend is an irrelevance, it is merely discretionary, and shareholders should not wait on expectation, this co. is a cash cow with the added advantage that IT will be taken over!
