Yeah but governments are not stupid either, they won't just reduce the bets on FOBTs to £2 overnight. They know how many people they employ and how much tax they pay. My guess is they will initially reduce it to £50 for a year or so which will give the high st bookies time to adjust. Wmh won't have a problem raising the amount of money they would need for an 888 t/o. Time will tell but they don't have a great deal of it to do a deal!!!

I think the complexities of a t/o or a merger will be impossible to deal with until the fobt issue is sorted out. I may be wrong of course, but, for instance-Why would a bank finance WMH to raise cash for a t/o if a massive part of the business was about to go belly up. Bankers aren't that stupid.There are probably dozens of other consequences I haven't foreseen.WMH management will be concentrated on lobbying rather than a t/o.All of course imho.See you in 3 monthsCM

I said £3 plus !!!! and a t/o not a merger, and no I wouldn't be happy but if somebody makes a bid & the major shareholders accept their is little you can do about it . Just found that out with PAYS shares I own.

So you as an 888 shareholder would be happy to accept £3 worth of Hills shares for your 888 now before the review has finished?3 months down the line there's a massive shock announcement of the £2 option and your £3 is suddenly worth £2...Until the value of WMH is known how can you possibly arrange a merger?CM

Absolutely, if the FOBT review is even ok for Wmh it will only get worse in the near future. Wmh needs to diversify quickly and 888 would be a great buy for them. Ironic but they would need to pay £3 plus which is the price they were asked for a few years back. Difference this time is that they need them or somebody similar otherwise they may not be around for long!!!

Why, hills would buy 888 which don’t have any fobts, if there is a tightening of legislation they would want diversification anyway.

Thanks. Understand. Surprised that if what you know is widely known, that WEB aren't a lot higher.

Yes, very risk indeed - massive revenues but tight margins. The secret is the valuable licenses that it already holds - effectively WEB is in the shop front and up for sale. Once we get a bit more regulatory news then buyers will be prepared to take the risk. I can see them being taken out for 3 or 4p which is still a lot higher than today's price. Yes, WEB makes GAN look positively safe and I hae piled into both LOL but much lower amounts that my core 888 and GVC holdings

Surprisingly muted response from 888 to the regulation news. I wonder if someone is going on behind the scenes here.

Pennsylvania is pretty small, I wouldn't expect any significant impact on any company.

hxxps://www.cardschat.com/news/888-shares-tumble-as-co-founders-family-cashes-out-for-146-million-52363 888 Shares Tumble as Co-Founder’s Family Cashes Out for $146 Million October 7th, 2017 by John Reger The stock price of 888 Holdings tumbled more than 6 percent on Wednesday, after it was announced that the family of co-founder Aharon Shaked was selling their remaining ownership interests in the online casino and poker company. The O Shaked Shares Trust, which held about 13 percent of the total company, dumped 46.3 million shares, netting about $146 million. Shaked family, 888 The heirs of the late Aharon Shaked sold their remaining interests in 888 Holdings on Wednesday and the news caused a 6 percent slide in the stock price. (Image: Globes.co) Shaked, who died in 2010, founded with his brother Avi Shaked and brothers Shay and Ron Ben-Yitzhak in 1997. The foursome built 888 into one of the biggest online gaming sites in the world, with the poker division hosting more than 10 million players in 13 countries. But the remaining members of the founding quartet have been distancing themselves from the business in recent years. In May 2016 the Ben-Yitzhak’s reduced their holdings from 10.4 percent to 3 percent. That news triggered a 3 percent stock slide. The Shaked family had been shedding their control, too, selling 40 million shares in June for about $141 million. There was no reason given for the transactions, but an inquiry by the UK Gambling Commission might have been a motivating factor. Record Fine, Acquisition Failure In August, the UKGC hit 888 with a record $10.1 million fine, citing the publicly traded company for responsible gambling violations and unscrupulous marketing tactics. These stemmed from a complaint by Britain’s Advertising Standards Authority over a fake news story created and distributed by an 888 media affiliate. The Ben-Yitzhak brothers are thought to have reduced their presence after talks to merge with William Hill fell through in 2015. William Hill had offered about $2.60 a share, while it was reported that Avi Shaked demanded closer to $4. William Hill then issued a statement saying, “Due to a significant difference of opinion on value with a key stakeholder, it has not been possible to reach agreement on the terms of a possible offer and the Board of the Company has agreed with William Hill to terminate discussions.” Then There was One With this divestiture from the O Shaked trust, Avi Shaked remains the lone founder with any significant involvement in 888. He and his brother split 48 percent of the company and while the children of Aharon Shaked got rid of their portion, Avi still owns his 24 percent. But just because ownership is changing doesn’t mean the company is necessarily changing directions. In January, 888poker signed with the World Series of Poker to be the title sponsor for the third consecutive year. They also hosted Event #60, $888 Crazy Eights No-Limit Hold’em 8-Handed at the WSOP, which may sound a bit gimmicky, but is testament to the company’s ingratiating itself with the wider poker world. The stock price did start to rebound after Wednesday’s slip. The price was 240 pence on the London Stock Exchange on Thursday, but bumped up to 243p after Friday’s close.

Active What is meant to happen, as far as I know, is that the shareholder informs the company and then they issue the RNS, not the shareholder. If the shareholder doesn't tell the company not sure what the 'penalty' is. The company will know sometime after the change in holding from the registrar and would then issue an RNS.

srp - This can easily happen if for example a company is taking on a much larger stake, say going to 20% then the said company only needs to keep the Stock Exchange informed until it has stopped doing what ever it is doing. Then and only then does this company have to produce a RNS.
