http://www.telegraph.co.uk/business/2017/10/16/south-african-lender-says-could-go-hostile-bid-uk-challenger/ Peel Hunt said the offer undervalued Aldermore and could tempt rivals to make a higher bid. Investec judged the offer to be reasonable but not “over-generous”.

Yes, it's close to risk free profit, the South African company seems keen imho.

I would like to see another party interested here, but I have seen the post announcement drift towards the offer price before in other stocks that I have held in similar situations. I guess it must be due to reduced number of sellers now and no reason for share price not to trade close to offer price?

Any risk of another bid and it could trade above 313p

Price beginning to move up in a way which is a bit suspicious... Maybe just wishful thinking but somehow I think price is moving up too fast and too close to 313

So no other companies interested in a fair priced buy. Does that indicate that the Challenger Bank industry is not as strong as we thought. No one wants to grow quickly? Any opinions?

I plan to sit tight and take the extra 3% when it goes through plus the small chance of a higher bid. I suspect the general market will run up to Xmas but I'm really looking to enter at a lower level than where I see most stocks. The market seems to have lost all fear at the moment and it may continue to do so for some considerable time. I find the sitting around and trying to be patient extremely challenging as when I have a sizeable amount of money not invested I feel bad as I'm getting no return on it.

Sold half of my holdings here on Friday to invest elsewhere in the sector, but happy to hold the balance until conclusion. Looked into valuations of both ALD and SHAW before and after an offer was received and by comparison with both OSM and VM. I believe both are undervalued by approximately 35%. I researched all challenger banks and think that OSB and VM. offer the nearest valuation to ALD and SHAW before the offers were received,haven't bought in anticipation of a takeover particularly but there is a chance that sentiment will change towards this sector.

I'm certainly staying put, to drag every penny I can out of the situation. ps. If your looking for cheap investment in the banking sector, put TBCG in your watch list. I've been buying. Georgian Economy growing 4.5% P/E 7.4, PER, 6.4 Double Digit growth. yield 3.7%

Aldermore on brink of £1bn buyout Aldermore, a specialist lender and savings bank, has confirmed that it is in talks with FirstRand of South Africa about a possible £1.1bn takeover, becoming the latest of a new breed of small UK banks to consider selling up. Founded in 2009 by the Barclays veteran Phillip Monks with backing from the private equity firm AnaCap and floated in 2015, Aldermore said it had received an “indicative proposal” of 313p per share in cash. The board was “likely to recommend a firm offer at this level,” it said. Complete article: https://www.thetimes.co.uk/edition/business/aldermore-on-brink-of-1bn-buyout-r9hvt8ww6

Thanks Steptoe, apologies for the ignorant question. This is the first share I've had where there's been a buy out - not been investing long so it's a new one for me. Still feel the offer is low based on valuations so also fingers crossed for a slight increase!

Terms of offer appear to be cash subject to due dili and in accordance with today's statement they will submit their bid within a month. Cash likely to be paid into your broker account I reckon 2 months from now. But let's get a counter offer please!

Hi everyone, I've been a quiet holder since June after the price slipped from 2.60. Initial target was that level again which was smashed today on the bid. The simple valuation ratios (PE at 11.5) and PEG of 0.8 suggest not much premium on the £3.13 offer. So the tone of the RNS from The BoD suggest they'd take it surprises me. No idea if there will be a counter offer or not.So what are people thinking? Keep the shares to see if there is a counter offer? And is it likely that if and when this does go through, will shareholders just get cash? Apologies I haven't done any research into the bidders yet.

First SHAW offer btw was 313 if I remember. Board felt it so derisory they didn't even share it with the market. Suspect little chance of a higher bid regrettably, however much I think 313 is too low.

Not much of a surprise, bearing in mind we're well into the 'Bent World' of Banking. If they can 'fiddle' Libor rates, Charge customers fees for unnecessary services, Help themselves to Business customer clients, Sell repackaged toxic investments - the list is endless, then I'm quite sure leaking insider knowledge is merely 'business as usual'. I'd happily look into and identify the beneficiary of every 'buy' trade since midday Wednesday, if I really thought it would make a difference.

Wonder how this leaked out days ago, going by the shareprice. I bet FCA look into trades.

313p bid gives a value on PER of 10 and looking at the last interims probably in single figures, so yes the offer is cheap. Could be another offer so after selling half to reinvest elsewhere in the sector I will hold the balance just in case.

Agreed and a little surprised ALD BoD have considered 313p as 'acceptable' at this early stage. Looking back to SHAW I believe the initial offer was 330p and they finally settled for 340p, so demonstrated, albeit by small margin, that there was more to play for. This just needs a 'counter offer' to propel it further to 340/350p, may be. I remember ALD touching 318p not that long after it launched, probably sometime during 2015 and well before George Osbourne's infamous B2L Budget proposals. So the current offer of 313p is modest IMV.
