ffp: Evening all, been to a company meeting today at Stansted MountFitchet, which was nice. Now relaxing again with a nice cool glass of water. On the subject of divis and share price, it has been agreed or even decreed that we are going to have to have a rights issue, for every 1 plo share that you own we will give you 5 and b shares, being of the rusty washer variety, for every 1 yo have you will give us 5. Not forgetting C shares being milk bottle tops, we are having a them all suspended due to all the cows dieing.
jonck: heck, forgotten how exhausting mentally ot is to follow a share price to get the peak...too many things to look at. Think my brain is about to fry.
jonck: Just been to Teschco to buy some coffee beans as runing out -- all helps boost their profits and get the share price back up.
ignoble: Government to flog 5% of it's Lloyds stake ...if they get it away ,suppose it is good news for the share price.
freddie ferret: Sorry off topic. Do you still hold shares in YELL GROUP PLC or HIBU PLC? Many people will still hold shares in this company which a while back changed it's name from YELL to HIBU, so do you have a share certificate in the bottom of the sock draw, or in your nominee account?? As the share price fell you may have lost interest in your holding and given up following the news? Well all is not lost. The HIBU shareholders group is now very large around 750,000,000 shares are now affiliated to it. That's around 32% of the shares in issue. So why might it be in your interest to join this group of over 400 shareholders? The answer is fairly simple. The group will be challenging in the courts the managements actions. Shareholders are stakeholders and thus legally have a claim just like creditors. The shares are currently suspended pending delisting or that is what the management intend, however they are unlikely to be able to get away with what they intend in the long term. The long term intention of the management in collaboration with a group of the creditors was to disenfranchise shareholders and put at least part of the business into administration, with probable sales of the remainder to suitors. The creditors involved in this plan (private equity firms and hedge funds together with a few savy banks) know their stuff and know there is value in the business. So why should you join the HSG (Hibu Shareholders Group)? Because it is going to try to get some compensation for shareholders. There is strength in numbers and the more shares registered the better. There is also a dedicated private bulletin board site for members. The people running the HSG are seriously competent. One of the people involved ran a Shareholders Group for former Cattles shareholders. Cattles offered shareholders 1p per share, through court action he got 27p per share for those in the grouping and carried out the administrative process. If you are not in the HSG and hold shares then if this goes to court you will not receive any payout. Therefore I strongly suggest you join the group. HIBU SHAREHOLDERS GROUP DETAILS AND HOW TO JOIN. The groups website is at. ...................................... ADVFN bbs Also the old monkey thread at. There is much I could discuss concerning what has gone on re HIBU, however much that the group knows is private and can only be accessed on the website, in addition however there is quite a bit that is very secret at this time. Suffice it to say there looks like a very good chance that substancial compensation for the shares will be forthcoming for those in the group. I would comment that while a member, I am not on the board or part of the management.
ignoble: Lloyds Bank report tomorrow interesting All a load of tosh IMHO but as long as the share price holds ,I'll be a happy bunny
ignoble: Speculative weekend press comment about Lloyds ... Sovereign Funds and the like looking to buy a stake and so the rumour mill goes around Probably won't hurt the share price
jonck: the point is a penny change in the share price.
squeaks: zoo123, THUS GROUP - Take-Over The board of CABLE & WIRELESS have announced the terms of a Cash Offer on the following basis: 180 pence in cash for each Thus Group share held. You have the following option: 1 Accept the Cash Offer on your holding. If you elect to accept the Cash Offer, your shares will not be available for you to sell, or to accept any other offer unless this Offer lapses. However, the shares will show on your portfolio until the Corporate Event is finalised. Please note that if you accept the Offer and proceed to sell your shares, you may be liable to buy back costs. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- On 30th June 2008 the Boards of Cable & Wireless and Thus Group announced the terms of a Cash Offer to be made by Cable & Wireless, through its wholly-owned subsidiary Bidco, to acquire the entire issued and to be issued share capital of Thus Group. Cable & Wireless announced originally that on 6th June 2008 it had made a pre-conditional approach to the Thus Board at 165 pence per share. The Board of Thus unanimously rejected this approach as it failed to reflect the standalone value of the Thus business and denied Thus shareholders the opportunity to benefit from the substantial synergies that the Thus Board believes would be available from a combination of Thus and Cable & Wireless. Following further discussions, Cable & Wireless approached Thus with an improved offer of 180 pence per share. The Thus Board considers that this improved offer represents a proposal worthy of consideration by shareholders in the absence of a better proposal. Accordingly the Thus Board, which has been so advised by Greenhill, has agreed that the Offer be put forward to Thus shareholders. However, it is the Thus Board's view that the Offer is not such a compelling proposal that the Thus Board could give a recommendation to Thus shareholders to accept the Offer at this time. The Offer represents a premium of approximately 64 percent to the closing mid-market price of 110 pence per Thus share on 27th May 2008, being the last business day prior to the announcement by Cable & Wireless that it was making an approach. If the Offer becomes or is declared unconditional in all respects, and sufficient acceptances under the Offer are received and subject to any applicable requirements of the UK Listing Authority, Cable & Wireless intends to procure that Thus makes applications to cancel the listing of Thus shares on the Official List and to cancel admission to trading in Thus shares on the London Stock Exchange's main market for listed securities. De-listing would significantly reduce the liquidity and marketability of any Thus shares not assented to the Offer at that time and the value of any such Thus shares may be affected as a consequence. If Cable & Wireless receives acceptances under the Offer in respect of, and/or otherwise acquires 90 percent or more in value of the Thus shares to which the Offer relates (and not less than 90 per cent. of the voting rights carried by Thus shares), and if all other conditions of the Offer have been satisfied or waived (to the extent that they are capable of being waived), Cable & Wireless intends to exercise its rights pursuant to the provisions of Part 28 of the Companies Act 2006 to acquire compulsorily any remaining Thus shares in respect of which acceptances have not then been received on the same terms as the Offer. If you wish to accept the Offer please do so as soon as possible as the Offer may not be extended beyond the closing date of 12th August 2008. Before making any decision please take into consideration all relevant factors of the event including the current share price and any possible tax implications. If you require any further information in making your decision please contact an appropriate professional advisor. Please note that once an acceptance instruction has been received for this take-over we will apply the same instruction for any subsequent purchases you make in this stock. We will only contact you again if the terms of the Offer change, the stock is compulsorily acquired or if we are notified that the Offer is closing. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- If you do not wish to accept the Cash Offer at this stage then you should take no action. Please ensure you submit your option before 05 August 2008 to enable us to process your instruction in accordance with the Company's timetable for this event. Any monies will be credited to your Cash Management Account.
philut: 6 June 2008 CABLE AND WIRELESS PLC UPDATE REGARDING PROPOSAL TO THUS Cable and Wireless plc ("Cable & Wireless") confirms that on 28 May 2008 it approached the Board of Thus Group plc ("Thus") in relation to a possible cash offer for the company at a price of 165 pence per share. Thus has since informed Cable & Wireless that it would not be prepared to recommend an offer at this level or enter into discussions. Cable & Wireless is disappointed in Thus' response since it strongly believes that 165 pence, representing a 50 per cent premium to the Thus share price on the day before its approach, is an attractive reflection of the value of Thus' standalone business and the benefits of the proposed business combination. Cable & Wireless believes that, in the changing telecoms environment, scale is critical and only operators with significant scale and cost advantage will be able to sustain the investment required to attract higher margin revenues. Accordingly, Cable & Wireless believes that its proposal offers an attractive future for Thus and its customers, as Thus would become part of a larger, stronger group with greater scale, product and service capability and financial strength. For Cable & Wireless, an acquisition of Thus would allow it to develop further the value of its Europe, Asia & US business ("EAUS") within its established strategic framework and accelerate its growth plans. In particular, the acquisition of Thus would: * Accelerate EAUS' growing market share of large enterprise and government customers; and * Produce savings in outpayments, operating costs and capital expenditure. Cable & Wireless is also comfortable that its existing EAUS business is a strong platform from which to deliver the long term targets that have been set for the business on a standalone basis. As such, Cable & Wireless views Thus as an incremental opportunity that would be additive to its existing plans for value realisation. However, Cable & Wireless is also keen to ensure that its existing timetable to consider value realisation options in 2008/09 is unaffected by the proposed acquisition. Against this background, Cable & Wireless considers that it is not in its shareholders' interests to engage in an extended process to try to persuade the Board of Thus to enter into discussions. Cable & Wireless is therefore today announcing a self-imposed deadline of 5:00pm on 30 June 2008 either to announce a firm intention to make an offer for Thus under Rule 2.5 of the City Code on Takeovers and Mergers (the "Code") or to announce that it does not intend to make an offer for Thus*, unless the Takeover Panel otherwise agrees. Cable & Wireless considers that its proposal represents a full and fair offer which unlocks value for Thus shareholders which would not be available to them on a standalone basis. Accordingly, Cable & Wireless hopes that the Board of Thus will reconsider its refusal to discuss the Cable & Wireless proposal. This announcement does not amount to a firm intention to make an offer and accordingly there can be no certainty that any offer will be made. A further announcement will be made in due course if appropriate.
