So thats it then. Its all over after months waiting. Where next for Barr? Is there another target or was Britvic the perfect match? I will hold as there is no reason why this shouldn't continue to perform well all on its own. Don
Well time trader by
Well Barr certainly fairing better on the news, BVIC is doen 18% over today and yesterday.
I don't think the merger is as dead in the water as the media are suggesting. I'd add the company are doing well without it so don't care either way.
What's the latest on the Britvic merger ?
There is a report in today's Scotsman which says that there is a hiccup with the proposed merger. One of Britvic's shareholders are unhappy with the proposed share ratio.
I've been watching BAG for a while and rejected BVIC due to their debt. Although I have no idea what the enlarged group would look like, I prefer to invest where there's a strong balance sheet so won't be investing if the merger goes ahead.
No publicity is bad publicity. Andy Murray toasts epic US Open victory with bottle of Irn-Bru AWESOME Andy Murray toasted his stunning US Open triumph yesterday – with an Irn-Bru. And he was piped into a reception in his honour to celebrate his epic five-set victory over Novak Djokovic. Amid scenes of jubiliation, Murray was welcomed to the British consul general's residence in New York. A piper dressed in full Highland regalia blasted out Scotland the Brave as he made his entrance into the plush Manhattan rooftop apartment alongside his mum Judy. A thirsty Andy promptly declined the other drinks on offer at the bash – before quaffing a glass of Irn-Bru to cheers from well-wishers.
It will be interesting to see what people like Nick Train make of this proposed merger. I don't hold either, but have both on my watch list and hold Nichol. It will certainly create a fine UK drinks group with some fantastic brands. For AG Barr, the positive is the size of the enlarged group they walk away with. The negative is moving from a solid balance sheet to relatively high leverage. Is it worth it? On balance, probably yes as the debt should be manageable. Thoughts?
Tracking Newtons holdings here: Newton have disclosed holdings in BAG and BVIC so suspect they are arbitraging.
Surprisingly muted response in the BAG share price to the BVIC merger proposal. BVIC is up 13% at the time of writing. BAG's share of the merged entity (37%) apparently already agreed, so the SPs ought to move in tandem. Could be an arbitrage opportunity to buy BAG and sell BVIC as BAG's market cap currently lagging 7% below the implied combined entity.
or you could just multiply advfn's figures by 3
I make it about £420m & just over 16 if you use the underlying eps
can any one help , advfns figures and bloomys are miles apart , what is current mkt cap and pe , anyone know
Further to the Company's announcement on 30 April 2012 confirming that HMRC Approval had been obtained and following the passing of Resolution 15 at the meeting, it is expected that the Share Subdivision will become effective on 28 May 2012 (the "Effective Date"). On that date, the Official List of the UKLA will be amended and each of the Company's ordinary shares of 12.5 pence each will be subdivided into three ordinary shares of 4 1/6 pence each ("New Ordinary Shares").
EXPERT STOCK PICKS AG Barr (target price 1,100p) AG Barr (LSE: BAG), the maker of Irn Bru and owner of a strong stable of other soft drinks brands, is a holding for two of our Expert Eight managers: Nick Train (Lindsell Train UK Equity and Finsbury Growth & Income (LSE: FGT)) and Charles Montanaro (Montanaro UK Focus and Montanaro UK Smaller Companies (LSE: MTU)). Barr has been a substantial holding for Train for donkey's years. Montanaro is also a long-term holder, but the firm has rather less weight in his portfolio than in Train's. Barr is trading today at around the same share price as two years ago. Train tells us: "It seemed plausible enough to us back then that the shares might tread water ... Why not sell, find another stock, then trade back into Barr after its couple of years in the doldrums?" He gives three reasons: "We were confident of Barr's dividend growth ... we covet the long run dividend stream it provides." "We knew that the strong cash generation would ... permit the acquisition of new brands, or ... the build of new production capacity for existing brands in a new geography. This cash generation is a competitive advantage for Barr but because opportunities arrive haphazardly, it is impossible to know exactly when the competitive advantage will boost the share price." "We are always reluctant to sell out of exceptional businesses, except on the most excessive of valuations." In hindsight it might appear simple to sell a stock like Barr that's going nowhere for a while and to buy back in later, but Train warns: "In real-time this is not such an easy thing to deduce or execute. Our conviction about the calibre of Barr's business and about the likelihood that its pricing power will protect long term shareholders against the ravages of inflation is much stronger than our conviction that the shares may or may not take a pause for breath." Wise words indeed, in my view, and applicable for investors not just in Barr but in any high-calibre business. So, at what price would our pro stockpicker be an enthusiastic buyer of more shares in the company? Answer: "Another 50p lower." Based on the price at which the shares were trading at the time, I put the target at around 1,100p. Also, Here's a couple of links about SCLP, one of the hottest stocks at the moment:
Noticed in the RNS about the annual report and AGM thay AG Barr arer to subdivide their shares again. From memory they last did this about 3 years ago and the shares motored up at that point.
Broken arrow... any reasons or analysis to back up your comment or are you just a clueless speculator?
Over priced stock , get out if you can,looking at 200 to 250 price in few months time.

Another good set of results, good to see rubicon going great guns
AG Barr sales still fizzing Wed 26 Jan 2011 BAG - AG Barr Latest Prices Name Price % AG Barr 1,077.00p 0.00% FTSE 250 11,520 +0.16% FTSE 350 3,154 +0.60% FTSE All-Share 3,085 +0.49% Beverages 9,390 +0.24% LONDON (SHARECAST) - Final quarter sales at soft drinks group AG Barr, best known for its Irn Bru and Tizer brands, is expected to be around 5% ahead of the previous year after a strong performance from its core brands. Full year like for like growth is expected to be around 10%, the group said in Wednesday's trading update. "The performance in the final quarter is especially pleasing given the strong comparative period in the prior year, the significant operational challenges posed by weather in late November/December and the greater promotional intensity experienced in the market," said the Scottish drinks maker. Rubicon saw revenue grow by over 30% during the year and is now a brand with sales of approximately £50m, double the sales at the time of its acquisition. However AG Barr also issued a cautionary note about pressures on household spending and rising inflation in the UK over the coming year. "Despite this difficult economic environment we anticipate further sales growth opportunities through our core brands. The investments we have made in our asset base to improve efficiency together with tight cost control and price increases will continue to help offset rising commodity costs." Across 2011/12 we expect to maintain our focus on delivering above market sales growth, strong cash generation and a robust margin profile, it added.
