On an enterprise value basis in particular it appears impossible to justify this deal on traditional “value” grounds.

Maybe - it's their acquisition philosophy that's the killer for me.Pity ANCR looked a good long term hold.

might expect now that Ecuphar is a public co, margins might improve hopefully as the Directors take less out and there might be some synergies to be realised with Animalcare?

MW - I think it's a bad deal because: - they've paid a very hefty multiple; - there's no demonstrable evidence that the acquired company is growing organically - it will continue on an acquisition spree, the admission document is clear about that - these really end well; - there's now quite a lot of debt on the balance sheet; - margins are very thin; and - it's not clear why Animalcare have done this.

too early to say whether it will be bad for holders; could reach such a conclusion may be in a year or two am disappointed that Ecuphar has obtained a lot of goodies without paying eg a listing on the stock market and effectively taken over ANCR without paying any sort of premium

I've sold out too, it's an unbelevably bad deal for shareholders. 3800

I'm out too. It's been a great share but I don't think this deal adds up. I don't like how it's being rushed through - why? Why the massive urgency to buy an unquoted company? I don't like how control is effectively being given to two people I've never heard of. I don't like how they have gone from being in a profitable niche to what seems like massively overpaying for a reverse takeover. And I don't like how private shareholders were locked out of a placing at a large discount. And I don't like how a significant cash balance has been turned into debt (if I read it correctly). It's a shame because it was a great company and I thought had more promise to come. Best of luck to remaining holders.

Ecuphar have much lower profit margins. I am struggling with this one. They are paying £135m for a company earning £3.5m, so PE of around 38.I've decided to sell out as this is a completely different proposition now. Might work out well but happy to watch from sidelines for now.

got an email to say trading had recommenced, down 20p so it could have been worse, not best pleased but not expecting the management to be interested. 3800

I'm presuming that this is a move to avoid the consequences of Brexit.

Thanks for doing the maths on that one nfs, not that we can sell up at the moment anyway, I'm not sure if the larger group will enjoy a higher rating but it hardly looks like a bonanza for existing shareholders. 3800

It's 8.6m shares to raise not less than £30m so implying a price of approx £3.49

Let's wait and see - I personally was looking at the positives i.e. Step change in size and profits with multiple new cross selling opportunities. Although this won't mean much if the share price drops 30% on relisting

Nfs, no share price reaction as they are suspended this morning. Personally, I want to understand more why they are doing this deal (as opposed to continuing to grow organically) and does anyone know what the placing price is? I believe it's not set yet, if it turns out to be any lower than the current market price pre-suspension the private investors, i.e. us, are shafted as we cannot participate in the placing. This is quite disgusting as it's a huge placing of 40% of the company. I wonder how many shares are in PI hands?

Ecuphar is a private company and I can't find accounts for it. Just have to wait for more information. Their board is basically taking over the ANCR board and the Ecuphar guys will own almost 50% of the business. We are actually now investors in Ecuphar in reality.

Blimey ANCR had revenue of £15m last year, Ecuphar £68m. This is going to be on quite a different scale going forward, and a very different company. Most definitely a reverse takeover!

10% price surge from 420 to 460 to buy today, has this share been tipped somewhere?

Well these have been a tad tricky to but of late! Never mind, now i have finished loading up the price will no doubt re-trace heavily and provide better opportunities. I certainly liked the narrative of expanding oversees sales and my previous note to self which read something along the lines of "a tad expensive" were rather thrown in the bin.
