Comment in the Telegraph in two separate pieces: However, for Tomkins, the honeymoon has been soured slightly – with chatter of close ties between Onex and Tomkins' management ruffling some feathers. Pride, said some shareholders, prejudice said those close to Tomkins. and Conversations over a bid are understood to have begun four months ago and were sparked by the close ties between Jim Nicol, Tomkins' chief executive, who is Canadian, and Onex. Mr Nicol knew Onex while he was chief operating officer at car parts maker Magna. The steady climb back from 294 to that initial price, after the announcement, is almost complete. Not sure which way to interpret the above pieces. Let go soon or hold on for further possible action?

There is still a 19p gap between offer price and todays share price ; there is some uncertainty there, suspect most of us are holding for the extra 19p and no dealing costs, but only Jon827 confident enough to buy now for a quick 5%.

"At present, there can be no certainty that a formal offer will be made for Tomkins or the terms on which any offer would be made." It ain't cut and dried.

Ooh , we like that!Currently hovering around 305p which suggests a bit of uncertainty and not much confidence of a higher offer.

325p possible offer just announced. That sounds a reasonably good result for shareholders if that goes through.

Tomkins, the maker of systems and components for the industrial and automotive markets, could be worth up to two-thirds more than its current market price in Nomura's best-case scenario. "Extensive rationalisation, structural growth opportunities and potential for significantly higher returns warrant a re-rating of the stock, in our opinion," writes the Japanese broker. It expects structural (excess) growth of around 4-5% in the next cycle worth an extra 50-60p a share, driven by expansion in green markets, aftermarket opportunity in Asia and structural shift in the consumer demand towards small cars. Nomura maintains its 'buy' rating and increases its target to 320p from 240p, but thinks the stock is worth about 410p in its best-case scenario

FRIDAY The Times Will double-digit margins put Tomkins in a different gear? The vehicle and industrial engineer does the majority of its business in the US but if it reaches 290p it will re-enter the FTSE 100. A quarter of Tomkins's business is in US construction, a sector which is still hurting. Even so, buy on weakness.~

Interim Management Statement Tomkins, the global engineering and manufacturing group, sets out below its Interim Management Statement covering the period from 3 January 2010 to 5 May 2010, and provides an update on the outlook for its end markets for 2010. Key Highlights · Greater than anticipated volumes across our industrial and automotive businesses, principally due to underlying demand rather than restocking. · Continued weakness in the North American construction markets. · Continued improvement in the Group's adjusted operating margin driven by both higher volumes and benefits from restructuring initiatives, with the Group as a whole achieving a double-digit margin in the first quarter of 2010. · First half of 2010 is expected to remain strong, but continued momentum in the second half is uncertain. Seems to be well received this morning.Up 10p despite ex 6.5p div yesterday.

A tad insensitive. They've done well to preserve shareholder value at Tomkins though so shareholders are generally happy.

Mmm, moving further into 3 yr high. Not a popular payrise on the shopfloor I should imagine : Tomkins hands CEO Jim Nicol 58pc pay rise Tomkins, the British engineering group, has awarded its chief executive a 59pc pay rise despite laying off thousands of workers in the wake of the downturn in the automotive industry. By Jonathan Sibun, Assistant City Editor Published: 6:19PM BST 19 Apr 2010 Tomkins The FTSE 250 company awarded Jim Nicol a £2.7m pay package after the group climbed back into the black in 2009. Mr Nicol received a £955,000 salary and bonuses and other benefits worth a further £1.73m, according to the group's annual report. The payout comes a year after Tomkins risked a pay-for-failure row after awarding Mr Nicol a £500,000 bonus despite falling to a $7.6m (£4.96m) loss in 2008. In 2009 the company improved its financial position but made a pre-tax profit of just $38.4m against a profit of $525.1m in 2007.

In line with guidance previously given, the Board proposes a final dividend for 2009 of 6.50 cents per share, which, based on the number of shares currently in issue, will amount to $57.4 million. When taken together with the interim dividend of 3.50 cents per share that was paid in November 2009, the total dividend proposed for 2009 is 10.00 cents per share (2008: 13.02 cents per share). The Board will seek to resume its progressive dividend policy as soon as the Group's results and market conditions allow. Subject to approval by shareholders at the Annual General Meeting on 1 June 2010, the final dividend will be paid on 10 June 2010 to shareholders on the register on 7 May 2010. Shareholders with registered addresses in the UK and the Republic of Ireland will receive their dividends in sterling, unless they choose to receive them in US dollars. All other shareholders will receive their dividends in US dollars. Any currency elections need to be received by the Company's registrars, Equiniti, no later than 21 May 2010. The exchange rate that will be used to calculate the dividend amount payable in sterling will be determined by reference to the prevailing forward exchange rate for the dividend payment date achieved by the Company on or around 1 June 2010. We will publish the exchange rate on the Company's website on the following day. .
