Hi Dan Will be pleased to see any research that you can do. There is not a lot to go on without forecasts from the company or a broker.

Correct you are; sorry for that rather pointless comment! Will contribute some research at the weekend as compensation :)

Arena Leisure Plc ('Arena' or the 'Group'), the UK's leading operator of horseracing fixtures which owns and operates seven racecourses in the UK comprising Doncaster, Royal Windsor, Lingfield Park, Wolverhampton, Southwell, Folkestone and Worcester. This was the old ARE, and has no connection at all with the recently listed company as far as I can see.

Worth starting with a review of what happened with Arena last time they were listed. I don't know the answer but saw they have been in the past

There seems to be very little interest in this company based on no bulletin board activity for over 3 months. The interim results were very respectable showing a 12% period on period increase in sales together with very positive comments for the remainder of 2017. I can see no broker forecasts, so have had an attempt at preparing my own for the year ended 31 December 2017; Sales: (12% increase year on year) £114m Gross profit: 29% (same as 2016, but could be better) £33m Admin expenses: (£1m more than last year) £25m Interest: (only £10m of debt now) £0.5m Net profit: £7.5m The above includes an annual depreciation charge of approximately £5.6m, so without any capital expenditure a cash profit of £13m. The net profit produces a P/E ratio of less than 10, whereas the expected P/E ratio is 15, based on other hire companies e.g. SDY, AGK. So the bottom line is this is a growing company and the P/E ratio of 15 would produce a market price of nearer 100p. There probably should be a discount due to lack of liquidity, however we will have to wait and see what will happen over the next 3-6 months as to whether the market agrees. If any other reader has different forecasts to mine I would be happy to look at them.

Pub landlady Karen Murphy wins TV football court case Karen Murphy saved more than £350 per month by using a cheap foreign decoder Continue reading the main story Business of Sport Gers' tax bill 'greater than £9m' Pompey 'struggling to end season' Bahrain GP definite - Ecclestone Lin in 'Linsanity' trademark bid A pub landlady has won her court fight with the English Premier League over using a Greek TV decoder to show games. Karen Murphy has paid nearly £8,000 in fines and costs for using the cheaper decoder in her Portsmouth pub. But she took her case to the European Court of Justice (ECJ). It found partly in her favour, and now the High Court in London has also found in her favour. However, the Premier League said it still had the right "to prevent the unauthorised use of our copyrights". The complicated case has been closely watched as it could trigger a major shake-up in the way football TV rights are sold, and potentially pave the way to cheaper viewing of foreign broadcasts for fans of top-flight English games. Time for someone to shaft the racing industry

Interestingly OFT only giving 2 weeks for comments. Therefore not expecting anything of substance methinks. However this must just introduce a tiny element of risk if there are any racing bodies raising concerns. Obviously if the OFT decide there is a case to answer - expect the share price to head downwards.

look at carphone, they are getting the same silly letters, referring to their shares. Carphone says its a fraud. Even though, like you, when i checked, the company looks genuine and regulated, weird.

Lets just say multiples of the offer price! As I say,ridiculous. I looked at their website and they seem genuine. Anyone else heard from them?

Yep, other potentially interested parties have had long enough to decide if they wanted to jump in with a bid and, was one to be had, I would have expected it on Monday 16th at 0700

Go and buy some shares if you think there is a possible new bidder - downside no risk upside potential - just small dealing costs involved and marginal difference on share price if no bid. Nobody willing to play - hence all over.

2 more big sales - both @ 1.5m shares. Of course a done deal.

as no other offer has been forthcoming, I reckon this is a done deal now.

I thought the possible other party was SIS but that was put to bed in December when they announced that they were no longer suspending dividend payments to consider their options and instead paid out a dividend just before New Year. Happy to be corrected though ... Looks like the Reubens have done a good deal here. I think this is another example of what will be a growing trend, namely the "low premium takeover". Liquidity is getting so valuable in today's world that strategic holders of large stakes (such as Hemmings in ARE's case) are happy to realize their asset at a 10-15% premium so that they can go and spend it before it's too late. The shennanigans of Joe Lewis at MAB is another example of a billionaire being unwilling to pay much of a premium at all and I suspect he will achieve his aims there too. It's pretty unethical but if the market is unwilling to rate shares properly then hard-nosed rich businessmen will take advantage of the situation, take a longer term view than the market and capitalise to the detriment of the small guy. I'd appreciate any thoughts on whether others see things similarly. Des

The share price is marginally below the agreed bid price. Clearly, many shareholders are selling now as solely a marginal call to get the money now rather than wait two months. Furthermore, I suspect that the R Bros are mopping up all the shares on offer. This game is over - there clearly is no expectancy in the market for a counterbid - otherwise the share price would be creeping above the bid price.

this is looking like a bidding war is about to happen, why put that clause in about 50p offer and reubens deal is off??? somebody at arena knows another bidder is about to come in.
