My understanding is that you do not need to send in your share certificates, we will be sending you out a cheque. This is because it is a scheme of arrangement and the market makers have kindly already stopped trading as people were just losing money being allowed to buy and sell up to the 16th. Thank you.

And, supporters ans saviours of the new company, of Morse! never forget the offer is specially kind for elderly holders and all certificate holders, you can keep your certificates (as momentos if you like) you do not need to send them in we are just sending you a cheque. You have no decision to make if you vote in favour (on your white forms, though there is disabled access, and full food and drink including a sit down meal for those who have difficulty standing) at the meeting - you will meet Quentin!!! I'm a daft brush but I do hope some ladies and gentlemen use this service and will ask for Quentin at the meeting, he is just setting off for work, no rest for the "wicked"!!!

Now, be calm, we are all men of the World, including those who speak English and want to take part in our society and vote in future elections. Now, I am sure you are all; all the more happy to be getting 51p because if it were not for my son's MBO you could have lost a lot of what you are being presented with as markets collapse, fearing Brown and Cameron. You will get your money in time for state school holidays

Interesting write up in this weeks IC - outside chance perhaps but another bidder would have to offer north of 60p to interest the institutions by all accounts!

I bet you are really pleased, my son works for Morse and I cannot tell you how overjoyed we all are at his MBO, saving his job (not that he would have had any truble with getting a better one), and making him an owner proper without the cost of plcs. You can rest assured that the samne trusted directors will remain and I now only have one thing to ak, what will you do with your profits, you are getting only a bit less for your shares than Quentin

IF there is a counter bid for Morse, what time scale from now would you expect it to materialise ? Ive never held a share with a Bid before, so not sure how long it could take for a counter bid to appear, if one at all.

IT services minnow Morse climbed 2.25p to 50.25p after agreeing a £70million takeover bid from privately held 2e2. Over half of Morse's shareholders, including troubled asset management group Gartmore, have thrown their weight behind the bid. However, veteran IT analyst George O'Connor, at broker Panmure Gordon, believes there's still time for a counter-bidder to emerge.

Morse agrees £69.8m offer from 2e2 IT services and technology company Morse has agreed terms on a recommended cash offer from private company 2e2, which is majority owned by Duke Street Funds. The 2e2 offer values each Morse share at 51p and the group at about £69.8m. The price represents a premium of 60.4% to the average Morse share price of 31.8p for the 12 months prior to the offer period and 23.6% to the closing price on Thursday (April 22). 2e2 says it views the acquisition as an important strategic opportunity to create an experienced UK and European IT services provider with greater capabilities that will benefit from larger scale, greater market visibility and increased attractiveness to the customer base. Morse chairman Kevin Loosemore said, 'Over the last 15 months, we have seen a significant recovery in Morse's operational performance and strengthening of its balance sheet which has been reflected by an increase in Morse's market capitalisation. 'Whilst continuing to focus on completing the recovery in operational performance, the board had started to explore strategic options that would significantly increase the scale of Morse's operations in order to deliver further increases in shareholder value over the medium term.' The 2e2 offer 'recognises the continued prospects for growth in the profitability of Morse whilst enabling Morse shareholders to realise their investment in full'.

So it's all done and dusted, hope they can let us know the effective date soon. Sell out now for a penny less than the offer and put the money to better use elsewhere or wait for the cash to be paid? Can another bidder come in at a higher price?

Enami - Wind the clock back a little more and you will see a share at 120p where profits were not disimilar to todays. Management seemed to let an air of fear spread about Morse not commenting on significant drops then surprise surprise bought a load at about 5-6p. Theyre quick to repsond to press speculation for something where the share price could get carried away if not commented on but not so quick to tell us Morse wasnt going under.

Under Rule 8.3(a) of the Code, any person who is interested in 1 per cent. or more of any class of relevant securities of an offeree company or of any paper offeror (being any offeror other than an offeror in respect of which it has been announced that its offer is, or is likely to be, solely in cash) must make an Opening Position Disclosure following the commencement of the offer period and, if later, following the announcement in which any paper offeror is first identified. An Opening Position Disclosure must contain details of the person's interests and short positions in, and rights to subscribe for, any relevant securities of each of (i) the offeree company and (ii) any paper offeror(s). An Opening Position Disclosure by a person to whom Rule 8.3(a) applies must be made by no later than 3.30 pm (London time) on the 10th business day following the commencement of the offer period and, if appropriate, by no later than 3.30 pm (London time) on the 10th business day following the announcement in which any paper offeror is first identified.

If two or more persons act together pursuant to an agreement or understanding, whether formal or informal, to acquire or control an interest in relevant securities of an offeree company or a paper offeror, they will be deemed to be a single person for the purpose of Rule 8.3. Opening Position Disclosures must also be made by the offeree company and by any offeror and Dealing Disclosures must also be made by the offeree company, by any offeror and by any persons acting in concert with any of them (see Rules 8.1, 8.2 and 8.4).

If you are in any doubt as to whether you are required to make an Opening Position Disclosure or a Dealing Disclosure, you should contact the Panel's Market Surveillance Unit on +44 (0)20 7638 0129." "Interests in securities" arise, in summary, when a person has long economic exposure, whether conditional or absolute, to changes in the price of securities. In particular, a person will be treated as having an "interest" by virtue of the ownership or control of securities, or by virtue of any option in respect of, or derivative referenced to, securities. Terms in quotation marks are defined in the Code, which can also be found on the Panel's website. If you are in any doubt as to whether or not you are required to disclose a "dealing" under Rule 8, you should consult the Panel.
