|Like it ralphmalph lol. A great movie.|
|Feels like PAYS is about to burst forth and multiply|
|Merging with anything French does not create a powerhouse. It creates a socialist moneypit.|
|Worldline are on a prospective PE of 25...we are on a measly 12!
But similiar waist line...|
|The rise in worldline share price in tandem with paysafe is still exciting to me. It's an Atos company partially floated therefore would be an agreed merger to create a powerhouse e.g. In wallets and digital tickets as well as significant processing synergies....can see atos and the ii shareholders of both companies being excited at a Nasdaq listing|
|Ahh, 3 year fixed. And it was end of March 2014... Fair play, at least we're at a 52 week high!|
|Well, he should have waited, so they can buy them all back over the odds!|
|Depends on whether the reason for taking out the original loan is still there.Is he going to replace the loan with someone else with more favourable terms or will he be forced to sell some shares to meet his needs?
edit.. Overlap with wolfs post.|
|EH9 - I tend to agree , what is Interesting that it is an "irrevocable undertaking" that has been signed - the loan was due to mature anyway - so why the need to sign an irrivocable undertaking - simple it is a pre-cursor to a deal announcement.
whilst this loan was due to mature anyway he could easily have rolled it over or even sold off 50/60% to clear the loan and kept the balance of the shares but he is not parting with a single share nor did he sell any of his 10 March LTIP shares - reason for me is simple - share price is about to rocket on an announcement - it is the only logic that fits - with 9.8m shares he could easily have parted with say 750K to repay the loan and still had 9m shares left - but he chose to keep and repay debt instead - he didn't do that for a 10% rise in the share price over the next few months - there is a big deal in pipe and he needed to get this done to clear regulatory/Board stipulations to take the top seat in a merged business.
Several months back he pulled all of his shares held in Canada one presumes to IOM for capital gains tax planning purposes - in other words every step he takes is a calculated move- and same here.
The more I think of it I wonder if news might be immenient and hence the "irrevocable undertaken" had to be signed before the weekend ?|
|You have to hand it to JL - he is £ 3 Million pounds better off due to that transaction - bit of a pain in the a$$ for us investors for the past 3 yrs but you have to admire his smarts !!!|
|You also have to go back to why they named it "paysafe"....they have very significant ambitions|
|Nurdin the institutional support is there and the strategic rationale is there- my intelligence is the paysafe mgt team is held in very high esteem....|
|Ha ha..you are incorrigible EH9!|
|The repayment date was fixed from the outset and or is a prerequisite to a deal or a merger - e.g. If paysafe to buy sage pay or merge with worldline and Joel become CEO both boards would want this....I personally hope for worldline merger and consequent listing on Nasdaq but failing that sage pay.....|
|With interest rate of 3% per quarter, there would be a strong incentive to pay off the loan as soon as possible!|
|He should have waited until the share buyback programme had finished...|
|Ah yes I recall...thanks a lot.|
|Alliance News14 November, 2014 | 5:56PM Email Form LONDON (Alliance News) - Optimal Payments PLC Friday became the latest company to confirm a directors' agreement with Equities First, as scrutiny of unusual share transactions involving the US stock loan company increased.Optimal Payments said that Chief Executive Joel Leonoff entered into a master loan and pledge agreement with Equities First Holdings LLC March 31.The company said that the details it provided in its director dealings announcement April 1st had been correct, but noting "recent speculation and weakness in its share price", it has opted to provide further information around the agreement.Leonoff pledged 1.5 million shares as collateral for a loan of around GBP4 million. The company did not say what this loan was for. Leonoff pays interest of 3% on a quarterly basis to Equities First on the loan, together with a financing agreement fee of 1.5%, and is obligated to repay the loan three years from the closing date of the agreement.Leonoff will receive credit of all dividends paid on the shares during the term of the loan once it is repaid, and for the purposes of securing the loan, Leonoff has transferred title and voting rights in the shares. Equities First will not exercise any voting rights attached to the shares, and has committed not to engage in any short selling in or lending of the shares during the period of the loan.Leonoff has an interest in 2.5% of Optimal Payments, or 4,133,843 shares including the shares pledged as collateral on the loan.Optimal Payments is the latest in a slew of AIM listed companies providing disclosures on dealings with Equities First. Others include Igas Energy PLC, IQE PLC, ANGLE PLC, Cloudbuy PLC, and Quindell PLC. Earlier this week the Daily Mail reported that the UK's Financial Conduct Authority is set to investigate a series of announcements made by Quindell regarding a stock-for-loan deal done by three of its executives with Equity First Holdings.Shares in Optimal Payments closed down 5.6% at 387.77 pence Friday.By Hana Stewart-Smith; [email protected]ews.com; @HanaSSAllNewsCopyright 2014 Alliance News Limited.

|Yes. It was pretty daft. And the people he gave them to, are not exactly renown for being positive for companies...|
|Why did Leonoff take out the loan in the first place? Was it a personal loan? I need to be enlightened :o)|
|hopefully, we see some afternoon strength|
|Rinse and rise|
|I would view repayment as being a non exec requirement either at paysafe or at bid/merger target prerequisite for Joel to become CEO of enlarged company....|
|I think that could be enough to push us up to the 500p level - onwards and upwards !!
In fact I wonder will the market take the view that perhaps whatever is in the pipeline needed JL to have unencumbered shareholding - perhaps something along the lines of a merger ?|
|Nice timing on this repayment! Must surely help propel us through the resistance expected at 470. Hopefully the shares will be a fiver each by Easter.|
