|Yep, been quite a journey - about 15 years for me I think. Been an interesting bb. Hopefully "see" many of you over on the VEC thread. Will continue holding for the foreseeable.|
|End of a long era...Now to VEC...Been quite a story....|
|See you all on Vec thread..gla|
|Aye - end of a story here. Not sure whether my CFD will be transferred to VEC or cashed out. Will find out in the morning...
|Ended with a bit of a whimper over the last couple of weeks but a lot, lot higher than three years ago to my immense relief. I'll hold VEC until the COPD trial results and probably until the results of the USA application.|
|And it's goodnight from me--and goodnight from him.|
|So Farewell then......|
|Been in and out and back in again from about the year 2000 made a decent profit over the the years Will miss you SKPTHE END|
|last day of dealings today. I hope the new group is as strong in practise as it looks on paper.
Could be a nice acquisition for large pharma when merger is sorted out.|
|Like so many here really have been on a roller coaster with SKP and hard to imagine life without them. I have been in for almost 20 years and was very over exposed believing the initial (IGS) hype with Paxil and then Fluti just to find a few years later I was holding a loss making, indebted basket case. That said if we had signed up a big pharma for Fluti early days to cover development, Fluti had managed to get US approval thus we hadn’t needed to sell the injectable who knows we may have all been millionaires by now….. Either way although SKP very nearly put me in a nut house I did eventually cut my massive losses @ £1.60p before buying back in heavily @ 40-90p so all ended up ok and slightly up over all and really never ever thought I would make back my earlier losses. Regarding looking ahead VEC (another big holding of mine..) is a pretty good outfit in my view and the merger makes sense to me so I will remain a holder and suspect in a few years the combined VEC/SKP will also get taken out.
All the very best to you all and thanks for all the posts over the years.
The SKP Daddy over and out…|
|Much the same Alexchry--nearly went belly up over these and down to about £3K but with a bit more invested since and the freebies from the placing and offer now about £1/4 m and looking for about another year/ outcome of VR315 etc. To hopefully cash in.|
|Hi all, agree SKP has been a roller coaster and now I'll be holding Vectura stock, not one that ever looked exciting, but the combined entity and expected news flow should see a return to growth and a much more coherent takeover target.|
|Yes, cap160, I feel the same after over ten years invested in SKP. I lost a huge amount on this share over the early years and was nearly wiped out when it sank to 25p. Fortunately, I bought more at 70p and got almost an extra 10% by buying and selling when new shares were issued. I needed the share price to reach around £7 to move into profit but I am quite relieved that it's got as high as it has. I'm not sure how long I'll stick with Vectura but I am tempted to remain invested until SKP's COPD trial result is announced which must be due fairly soon. I may also wait until the result of the Vectura USA application is known which I think should be in just under a year's time. Assuming good results for both, my ideal scenario would be for the company to be taken over in a cash only bid, anything over £2.50 would put me in profit finally.|
|Well, after 20 years the last week of Skyepharma as we know it. Quite sad really......or I am lol.|
|Vectura completes safety tests on asthma drug
|All quiet here, despite continued strong growth reported in trading update today.|
|So that is both sides voted for. Tick that off the list of things to do.|
|Thanks for the confirmation.|
|yes, it's a formality to ensure the correct procedures have been followed in a timely manner, percentages of shareholders voting, documentation etc
I attended one recently regarding Pace's merger...

<...> I'm not sure of the significance of the court meeting on June 27, I'm assuming it's just a formality.|
|Correction - June 28 is the first day of trading after the merger. Today are the various meetings to give the green light to the merger. I'm not sure of the significance of the court meeting on June 27, I'm assuming it's just a formality. I still can't understand why Vectura shares are worth more than SKP's shares although the SKP discount has narrowed. Besides the merger, there is a lot of news to come out of the two companies in the next nine months, in particular the results of the major COPD trial for SKP due soon and the result of the US drug application by Vectura which should be out very early next year. My break-even point on my SKP holding is now a little over £7 so, if the news over the next year is good, I might even move into profit, a state that a few years ago when SKP sank to around 25p seemed even more unlikely than Leicester City winning the Premiership!|
