It was a requirement of Herstal that before it made the Herstal Offer, which the Board believes represents good value for Shareholders, the Group should dispose of its 49% interest in MUSA. Despite entering into negotiations with a number of different parties over a sale of this interest during the period August 2013 to February 2014, these negotiations did not result in a firm offer for the Company's interest in MUSA. By late February 2014, in order to preserve the Herstal Offer for the benefit of Shareholders, it became necessary to dispose of the Group's interest in MUSA at a nominal value. This disposal was concluded on 28 March 2014 and resulted in an adjusting post balance sheet event charge of £5.1 million in the results for the year ended 30 September 2013. However, this write off has secured the Herstal Offer at the Herstal Offer Price for the benefit of Shareholders.

This must change the dynamics of this deal. Apart from anything else it would make huge sense for Colt to buy MUSA - or Manroy. It's got to be worth and extra £700-750,000 pa over the life of the contract to Manroy - and this is only the first of the replacement barrel contracts from the DOD

Yep seems to be some detail that's taking a bit longer to tie up and i'm guessing it's with MUSA.

It does not long to say No but it takes a little longer if you need to finish the legal paperwork or count all the cash to make an offer perhaps. NAI. Or perhaps it's the new USD54m M4 replacement contract that changes the numbers.

Extension to deadline This announcement is not an announcement of a firm intention to make an offer under Rule 2.7 of the City Code on Takeovers and Mergers (the "Code") and there can be no certainty that an offer will be made, nor as to the terms on which any offer will be made. Extension to deadline in accordance with Rule 2.6(c) of the Code. On 14 February 2014, the Company announced that, in accordance with Rule 2.6(a) of the Code, each of Herstal SA ("Herstal") and Beretta Holding S.p.A ("Beretta") must, by not later than 5.00 p.m. on 7 March 2014, either announce a firm intention to make an offer for the Company in accordance with Rule 2.7 of the Code or announce that it does not intend to make an offer, in which case the announcement will be treated as a statement to which Rule 2.8 of the Code applies. The Company also announced that it could approach the Panel for a further extension to this deadline in due course in accordance with Rule 2.6(c) of the Code. Following such a request from the Board of Manroy, the Panel has consented to an extension of the deadline to 5.00 p.m. on 31 March 2014 by which time each of Herstal and/or Beretta must either announce a firm intention to make an offer for the Company or announce that it does not intend to make an offer for the Company. This deadline will only be extended with the consent of the Panel in accordance with Rule 2.6(c) of the Code. The Company remains in active discussions with Herstal. The discussions with Beretta are not active but have not been terminated. There can be no certainty that an offer will be made for the Company, nor as to the terms on which any offer may be made.

and the price continues to tick up on no volume just seven days before the extension deadline. A done deal? People in the know? Just a punt? Reading too much in to this?
