How do they get to 11.8% - what a precise figure?
|Graham - typo?? Possibly I suppose. Type "O" trade of 10.8m which did not seem to move the price. Has a broker picked this up? Way above NMS. Guess we will see a counter party trade posted shortly.|
|I assume that trade is a typo ? There are only two holders of over 10m shares, Alan Rosengren and Helium. Helium I am sure are not sellers.|
|Revenue flat, eps gains due to reduced operating costs - and you can't keep cutting your costs. Need some revenue growth.
Outlook - The Group believes that its individual business units have a positive future and that operating profits should continue to grow.
Is this credible? Not on the basis of these interims.|
|Good rise today. People will soon be able to take £500 out of their pension tax free as long as they spend it on financial advice. The search website "unbiased" claims that people who take advice can receive an extra £3,500 per annum from their pension pot....great news for LGT.|
|Half year results for the six-month period ended 30 June 2016, on 20 September 2016|
|Another penny rise on no volume. 14.25p bid for no reason.
Is this now seen as "in play" ? There does not appear to have been buying ( from say Helium) that might be pushing it up ?
Not complaining !!|
|9% rise on naff all volume - wassup?|
|See that the LSE trading volume of AFHP amounted to 14.2K shares today.|
|AFH (AFHP) sh_are price went down today as well! I would have expected a rise in a bidders share price after they pulled out of a take over. Not sure how much due dilligence was done but I understand other potential bidders can go over the findings and mull an offer:)
Agree though that LGT is one company who's share price realy could moon shot with its B-2-B/C potential.|
|I don't think the meagre takeover bid was worth the hassle of putting to shareholders.All this has been a bit of waste of time for AFH and LGT, but has hopefully been good for us with a higher support point.Next move is for LGT to keep steadily growing.|
|Certainly agreed that AFH are bitter. LGT Board seem old time arrogant to me - evidenced in that they didn't put the bid to the shareholders. Also, they have small stakes. They will do better by continuing to pay themselves hansomly.|
|It's evident from the tone of today's RNS that AFH are bitter, especially after LGT pushed the share price up above their takeover bid price within a few hours of trading (effectively two fingers up at AFH). Nice move LGT.|
|AFH offer withdrawn. As above - Couldn't myself see how AFH was going to fund the acquisition. LGT was too big - too much of a stretch.|
|Yes seems very quiet except:
Helium's investment advisor ISPartners disclosing their holding
|Very very quiet here.....no opinions on increased offer ? Or other players ? Nothing more from AFH and no further response from LGT ?|
|FSG got taken out a few years ago by Standard Life for a figure close to the turnover/revenue if that were the case here we could be looking at 38p a sh_are! :)
Anyone know Standards' number?
St James's Place might like to have a look too. It would broaden their routs to market.|
|A bit of weekend press might do the trick.|
|Well interesting. My sale last week looks badly timed to say the least. Oh well, you win some you lose some. It's not a business I'm comfortable holding long term due to its poor quality, but looks like I jumped out a week or two early. Well done to everyone else!|
|Anyone worked out how AFHP will fund the acquisition. They went to the market last year and raised £6m to fund acquisitions. Is this all still available, plus some, to cover the 50% of £17m they propose to fund in cash?|
|Needs to be all cash offer. I wouldn't take shares. Also needs to be 20p plus before I would be interested.|
|Everyone initially offers less than they're prepared to pay. That goes for everything. Given the strong response from LGT I expect any revised offer to be increased next month. If I ran a company for years and had just started to turn it around I'd expect a decent offer to get out, otherwise I'd just carry on growing the business until it was worthwhile selling. For a company such as LGT, at 12p it has only just started recovery!|
