resistance1: Another thought to ponder. Under what circumstances would a PR blackout be instigated to potentially impact share price in a negative way. Would this apply to an acquisition or JV. Not sure. In this scenario a bolstered share price would surely help the process? With a disposal surely the same would apply -- potentially increasing the sale price? As you can see I'm floundering! Carpet's suggestion of taking a division private would be helped by artificially hampering share value -- but surely this would be considered very sharp practice?
car1pet: In my experience when a takeover is being discussed there is an announcement that Company X is in discussion with company Y but no agreement has been reached. This usually results in an uplift in the share price. Given this hasn't happened that is why I'm of the view that it is a private buy out and negotiations are taking place behind closed doors and if a deal is done the first we will know is when it is announced and we are told what share price has been agreed. The negotiations would be with LO, Herald and Marom the major shareholders. Although PI's account for 30% we don't get consulted
echoridge: There's unlikely to be a tender, not because of anything to do with a judgement on advantageous prices or anything like that, but mainly because managements don't generally like them as they prefer to keep the flexibility of going in and out of the market when they so choose and/or to be able to have the option to stop and conserve cash if necessary, which I reckon very much applies to BVC. The reason I put it out there at all is because if you are ever going to consider it, it's exactly in a situation like this one where a buyback has been approved but not begun and during the interregnum, the price falls materially, in our case from around 50p to the current 33.75p. As a result, the Company - assuming insiders and the dominant shareholder are persuaded to declare they won't participate, as happens sometimes with this type of tender - could price the tender at a small premium to that original 50p, and provide an attractive, partial exit for smaller, weaker holders and hopefully jolt the share price to a new range going forward. As far as any notion of paying 'disadvantageous prices', management can easily justify the 50p price since they have no idea the average price they will have to pay over an entire year (or more) if they go in the 'normal' way and buy say 25% of a day's volume at 105% of VWAP. Completely defendable but I certainly don't think it's likely for the reasons I mentioned, though management would be well advised to consider it.
fse: Dilemma here is deciding to take a position or add holdings in an environment that is shot to sh*t and a company thats gone suddenly silent. The company is nevertheless profitable and has plenty of cash and at these levels pays a >2% dividend and is on a PER of 13. Its more a matter of deciding if it can get worse from here or spike on good news and risk getting shut out of the market with the share price getting away from you. Were it just traded on LSE if you are actively watching this you should have an opportunity to buy before the share price goes out of reach at your intended purchase range. So at the risk of missing a bit of action its a safer strategy. Problem is that they are also listed on TASE and as they are open earlier in Israel than the UK ... news gets leaked then confirmed and by the London Market opens price is much higher. I have successfully up until now range traded BATM and used periods of no news and lower prices to top up because the company does regularly release news.
fse: Kooba give it a break you are a rude lad with an axe to grind. If you tried not attacking people you might get a better hearing. The last set of results for the company were plain excellent and they commented that they have a full order book and a back log. We are all trying to rationalize this published information with a severely depressed share price. The proposed share buy back can not be initiated most likely due to restrictions on the company that are either good or bad. ie they are in price sensitive negotiations. Bad news would be something along the lines of losing a major client or a profit warning. Bad news seems unlikely and they would have to already announced it. Good news or possible contract negotiations with a client would most certainly hold up a share buy back. There could be bureaucratic or formality issues with the exchanges but this would not prevent an explicatory comment from the company. Once momentum is lost and uncertainty enters the fray share price can get hit unfairly hard even if there is nothing of any major concern.
fse: Actually BATM have substantially increased their revenue, operating profit, cash and earnings per share for the last 5 years. Previous years results are listed on BATM website if anyone doubts that statement. There has been considerable progress in all divisions with developed (fully funded)technologies now entering the market. Nobody needs to hold in blind faith as the results are published. Zvi Marom talked about future strategy on numerous occasions. The recent take was that they will dispose of the cyber business and get out of distribution which should generate extra cash reserves to add to already large pile. The market has not been kind to many companies in this sector with BATM share price getting hit worse than most due to the Russell index fiasco and false information. The company claims to have a larger order book than this time last year. BATM was completely restructured @ 10 years ago most of what they now have are late stage development products starting to enter the market. The share price is extremely disappointing but I seriously doubt many investors take the time to research this and the current share price in no way reflects the value of the company.
kooba: Echo..apology accepted.FSE.. no my point is that sometimes managements take action that they determine is in shareholder interests when private shareholders do not..private client shareholders do not like holding illiquid private companies and often can't. Yet see the shore cap price reaction when announced fell sharply then the company bought shares back once off market i believe at a big discount. It worked very well for those inside the tent not for those forced out. Big institutional shareholders like L. Odier however may chose to be part of a process as they think the company can benefit and restructure under a period off market ..then re float subsids a few years down the line. I do not know this is planned at all just running it up the flagpole..the lack of buy back , the share price decline do not say this is not a possibility. However long a shot. In the mean time I think the company putting some narrative about why a shareholder approve buy back is not being implemented when they believe it to be in the interest of the explanation might shut me and others up not trying to fill an information void.
fse: hTTps:// Appreciate those who have taken the time to try to figure out what is going on here. Lots of granted potential reasons and outcomes but no Mars bar. It would appear to me that something is going on behind the scenes which may very well impede buy back schedules. Does the company have to advise the market "every" time it buys back shares ? It seems to me that someone is building up a holding at a somewhat manipulated price. Not saying illegal but lets say you are a backer in the case of Ador how are you going to get compensated other than share grants/options etc. Or plain holding shares in BATM you cant buy ADOR .... and what happened to the newsflow on the Milkens conference. Maybe we will get some feedback but the silence is confusing. Also the trading volumes are highly irregular. Added: share price appeared to start taking a hit just prior to the increased investment in ADOR and when it was formerly announced the share price was already sliding but oddly has never really recovered. In that period we had an impressive set of results and solid forward statements. This should have stabilised the price but it did not. Buy back is announced yet it seems like someone is out there dictating "not yet"
kooba: 3rd Feb board approvalThe Group has a strong balance sheet and the Buyback Programme, which would be funded from the Group's net cash position, forms part of the Board's broader strategy to deliver shareholder value.

fse: >echo.... think you are close to whats going on here. There does appear to be a degree of manipulation here with a handful of sells at the end of the day sufficient to push the share price down. As there is no conviction and we have lost momentum whether by chance or design the share price falls away at the end of the day on very low volume. You have to go back a long way to the 10:1 share split that saw the share price go over 700p when it should have shown 70p. In any event it cant stay like this, unless there is some meteoric negative news that no one has known about for months now and that seems impossible. Wish I could be more helpful but as I say its all a bit of a mystery...actually make that one heck of trip into the twilight zone FFS
