|What is the timescale of this offer? Ie when paid etc?|
|Should have checked that they were floated. It didn't occur to me.
Exit price looks fair given the history. Shame outside investors won't get a chance to stay for the ride.|
|Only got a third of holding left; in spite of this high final bid, the directors have behaved reprehensively IMO.|
|Sold some more; sod's law if the bid now comes in high, but the wait's been just ridiculous.|
|:) Thanks gents; still think it's low-ball if it comes in at about 87p, but would just be glad to leave this idiot share behind - "talks" ongoing forever, far more detail of them in the press than in RNS's. Have sold a few ahead of any bid too, having been continually disappointed so far.|
Seems to be everywhere!|
|spec - you seem to be a bit lonely. Hope it comes good for you
|Think they said £75m, which isn't much of a premium - sounded pretty advanced, but then you'd expect so after well over a year of bid talks! Works out at about 87p I guess, but p/e of 11 doesn't seem like much.
Article said TimeWarner were interested because some of Shed's productions (eg Who Do You Think You Are) had transfered successfully to the US.|
Would you mind giving the rough content of the story or any prices rumoured in the times as I am not a subscriber.
|SHDP, the co that only RNS's once the Sunday Times have leaked something.
TimeWarner they're saying; strewth, I'd be so glad to see the back of this company.|
|"Shed Media plc ("Shed" or the "Company")
On 14 December 2009, the Company announced that it had received an indicative
approach regarding an offer for the Company from a consortium formed by funds
managed and/or advised by Bowmark Capital LLP and Darwin Private Equity LLP
working with certain members of Shed management. The independent directors
announce that all discussions with these private equity funds in this regard
have now ceased.
However, the independent directors confirm that the Company remains in an offer
period having received a proposal from a potential offeror, working with certain
members of Shed management, which may or may not lead to an offer being made for
Are they winding us up? Is this an excuse to spend another 2yrs in an offer period?
Sunday Times ran a piece on SHDP saying there should be a "put up or shut up" - and this is the response? Pathetic.|
|Well, I was certainly wrong about the "..Almost upon us". That was 3 months ago; the bid saga itself is now 13 months old.
Just how long does it take? Financing must be easier now, and if they're not going for it, surely should have declared as such.|
|Aim not the place for media co. Not surprised that Shed decided to follow Tinopolis and RDF out of here.
Shame as it would have been a great place for these co. if the market played ball.
Good co. interesting that 40% of revenues come from the US.
Would have liked to see a merger rather than an MBO with ? Tinopolis/RDF
|One post in 16 months before mine; odd, when been bid interest since Feb 09. Oh well - seems only me interested in these, will keep fingers crossed for 100p+ bid in next few weeks.|
|The saga of the never-ending bid approach. Think rejected one was at 100p; does that mean they're coming back better, or the fact the main two p/e bidders have joined forces mean they might come in lower than that?
Either way, the endgame must be almost upon us by now, & my guess is 100p+.|
|Shed ahead - news story from GCI
|Finally waking up - have to stop this yawning!
-Results will be out 30 April
-Website is getting an overhaul shortly and should improve communication with investors
|"results for the 16 month period to 31 December 2007, scheduled for late April 2008"
No dates appearing on the www site.
|it would need to be "eternal" lol|
bruce the worry bear
|they have just got a commission for a new series called "hope springs" - could be a new title for this thread?|
|Any thought on this stock|
|This is a growth stock, and this year more good news will emerge. Also remember one large share holder was filling up at about 120p and further director purchases after last final results. Now below 100p, the PE is cheap now and you can once again get in this one.
By the way resent news from China, made this stock drop from about 105p to 95p, but how would the new law chnages affect this stock? Or an oppertunity to buy? (DYOR)|
|maybe they have a new one in teh pipeline...nudge nudge wink wink|
