|Nice finsih to the week - hope it continues this week. I can see the £10 soon enough|
|I would have expected PTEC to have been well above 1000p by now. Sagi's selling keeps downward pressure on the share price for a long time. I'm happy to see him reduce so I have to take the pain that goes with it.|
|That is not really that big a difference. As the poster said, small percentage. Around 3 percent is really not a lot. Moves that much in a day|
|Yes of course it's normal and a pretty small discount. E.g.. if share price was 90,then discounted to 87 no one blinks. But 900 to 872. Wow!!!|
|Isn't it normal to buy such a slug in an off market transaction at a discount? If he were to sell the same in chunks or do a placing like he did last year then the price will be knocked down. So I thought this price was pretty good vs market price|
|I would take anything Sagi says with a pinch of salt. He is a convicted crim - brutal yet true. So it's always wise to look a bit deeper. Who is Boussard & Gavaudan.The surprise to me is the price. Not around the market but at a significant discount. Perhaps this is a sweetener as part of a much bigger deal. Maybe Sagi is keen to get out very quickly because he has other plans for his cash.Playtech plc ("Playtech") announces it has been notified by Brickington Trading Limited ("Brickington") that following a direct and unsolicited inbound enquiry to Brickington by Boussard & Gavaudan Investment Management LLP ("Boussard & Gavaudan"), Brickington has agreed to sell 13.0 million Playtech shares to them at a price of 872.5 pence per share (the "Sale").|
|That is a different question but on balance I think this derisks PTEC even more.
Many institutions will not touch companies that have too big a holding from founders.
As Sagi's influence is diluted then the big boys are more likely to take a chunk leading to upward pressure on the share price
Of course, short term a director sale always raises questions.
I would look to buy in around a week once things have settled|
|trentboy- are you saying this is a good opportunity to buy|
|Positive sale news today IMO.
Anything that reduces the Tedi percentage will give the company additional credibility. 17% is still a lot but more palatable to larger institutions.
Research on the buyers would be welcome. It is a huge amount to invest but I think it is a wise buy on their behalf. Sadly I am not able to get so many shares but will continue to chip away.|
|Agreed nod. Less vertical integration but more horizontal integration|
|If a gaming company acquired PTEC it would lose many if its customers. Similarly, if PTEC acquired a large gaming company it could not then service its competitors.Growth in financial services makes sense, though large acquisitions may hit regulatory obstacles.|
|Be surprised but this is winner takes all. Gvc not Israel though so really cannot see this one going through.Sector game changer though.Win be THE gaming leader|
|Betaville intelligence: Sportingbet owner GVC said to be gearing up for its next major takeover deal; spokesperson denies interest in £5 billion Playtech merger|
|Yeah that's true|
|PTEC are not interested in verticals. They cannot be seen to compete at the front end with the licencees.
Got to understand that PTEC are picks and shovels.. Vertical backwards but not forwards|
The bid price is 196p + 4p divi due next week.|
|...which makes me wonder why ttr is priced above the 'agreed' bid...|
|I'm in TTR and agree the price is low. However the buyer, Kindred, has already received irrevocable undertakings from 71% of the TTR shareholders to accept the offer so it seems to be a done deal.|
|offers vertical integration for ptec..... And take out price for ttr too low so far...|
|Too "front end" for PTEC but it shows the sector is really hotting up again and ready for the next round of condsolidation|
|Nice agreed takeover of 32red/ttr today- unless Playtech want to grab it fast...|

|"Significant fluctuations in currency exchange rates, mainly in Sterling, due to macro-economic events had a material effect on the financial results of the year across all key metrics. On a constant currency basis, revenues, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Profit, increased by 20%, 32% and 42% respectively. When further excluding the effect of acquisitions, reflecting the underlying performance of the business, revenues, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Profit increased by 13%, 28% and 48% respectively."|
|Geographic analysis is given in the results towards the end (Under NOTE 4 - SEGMENT INFORMATION )|
|PTEC is a global company. So what percentage of revenues are from the UK? I am sure it is less than you think|
