I've noticed that the share price still moves up and down since the takeover bid. Has the bid been definitely accepted or is there a chance the buyer could pull out? Thanks.

BCA Marketplace has rejected a £1.61bn takeover offer from London-based private equity firm Apax Partners.
BCA rejected the 200 pence-per-share offer, which represents a 5.2% discount to Friday’s closing price of 211 pence-per-share.
Monday price up by almost 9.5%, at 230 pence-per-share, however.
BCA said in April it was trading ahead of market expectation with strong profit growth as the remarketing businesses was successful in winning new contracts and continuing contract renewals.

bought most of our vehicles from bca, some 3yrs old with less than 5k on the clock
and sold through wbuy yc, quick and easy, our local jag garage just closed down,
so a lot of future business will be through big car supermarkets
which buy from BCA, which if they gave joe public a lower
comm, charge would push auction prices up a tad,
foreigners buying up everything at a 30% plus currency discount, tragic
ie NZD/£ was 3.40/£ now 1.92/£

With 7% of BCA shares still in the orbit of Woodford you may not be the only shorter skatersav. That said, and your position may or may not be correct, I personally draw a distinction between the high risk and relatively illiquid positions taken by Woodford that has brought about his current problems and the likes of BCA. Fund Managers don't go from being 100% right to 100% wrong overnight and I shall be looking for other reasonable companies where he is a forced seller.

Chaps/chapettes. Woodford did not sell those shares. He lost a 3.5bn mandate to run money for st James place. That’s why it shows a reduction in his holding. This shares now sit with two fund managers who do not necessarily want to own the shares. They will probably sell them, in my opinion. Meanwhile, Avril Pb transferred 2m shares to her daughter in March, who will probably have sold. And BCA fail to put out a trading statement in April, as they did last year... I am short.

Statement re Withdrawal of Apax

BCA Marketplace plc

Statement re Withdrawal of Apax

The Board of BCA Marketplace plc ("BCA" or the "Company") notes the announcement by Apax Partners LLP ("Apax") that neither Apax nor any funds advised by Apax intend to make an offer for BCA.

The Board of BCA received two preliminary and conditional indicative proposals from Apax relating to a possible cash offer for the entire share capital of BCA (the "Proposals"). After careful consideration, the Board of BCA concluded that the Proposals undervalued the Company and its attractive prospects. Accordingly, the Board of BCA unanimously rejected the Proposals.

The Board of BCA continues to believe in the attractive long term prospects for the Company, and on 28 June 2018, BCA published its preliminary results for the twelve months ended 1 April 2018, delivering a third consecutive year of strong earnings growth. In the statement, Avril Palmer-Baunack, Executive Chairman said:

"The Group has delivered record commercial and financial results for the third successive year. We saw increased volumes across all divisions, with UK Vehicle Remarketing achieving the landmark of selling over one million vehicles in the year. Adjusted EBITDA increased by 17.6% to £159.5m while adjusted diluted earnings per share has increased to 11.4p, up 25.3% (compared to 9.1p in 2017). Operating profit has increased by £13.3m to £87.6m, an increase of 17.9%, reflecting the growth in adjusted EBITDA offset by non-recurring restructuring costs relating to simplification of management structures.

The strong Group performance reflects our unique position within the Automotive solutions sector. BCA has the infrastructure, the range of digital and physical capabilities, a history of good service and innovation and we are now providing solutions at scale. These capabilities, especially the services within the more recently acquired businesses, have continued to be integrated in order to provide comprehensive customer solutions and the efficiencies that have supported the Group's growth, cash generation and dividend policy.

The new financial year has started well, with performance since the year end in line with our expectations. Across all of our markets there remains significant addressable volume to capture, where our business and consumer solutions can bring efficiency and value to new customers during the time a vehicle changes ownership. We are excited by and committed to the opportunities ahead for BCA."

This announcement is being made by BCA without the agreement or approval of Apax.

As the owner of a small car trading business I have an account with BCA, so I know the business well. Like every other car trader, my biggest challenge is in finding good stock to sell. For the last 3+ years stock through BCA has been getting premium prices, much of it above "Trade CAP Clean" prices, and relatively few lots go unsold on their first pass through auction. Many of the major PLC dealers sell their trade-ins via BCA, and this provides an essential source of stock to the thousands of independents like me. In addition WeBuyAnyCar (WBAC) is owned by BCA, and is an excellent source of stock obtained direct from the public, and BCA make tremendous margins selling these vehicles via their own auction houses. To me it seems like BCA is a vibrant, successful business, and quite dominant in its sector. I have to say that the financial journalists who write these bearish stories about BCA simply don't seem to understand the business. BCA is the ultimate middle-man in the industry, and makes money principally from hefty buyers' and sellers' commissions, so it's wrong to equate its fortunes with car retailers whose gross margins are subject to completely different pressures. Other than Mannheim there is no rival auction house of any scale in the UK, so those commission rates are robust. The WBAC business is a brilliant high-margin adjunct to the auction business, and I can't see it being challenged by any rival either. For journalists to suggest that these WBAC vehicles represent a stock liability is absurd. Have they been to any of BCA's sites and watched the cars go through every 40 seconds with another £500 commission to BCA? I don't suppose they have. Perhaps all they do is sit at their desks and recycle garbage written by poorly researched tipping sheets. To put it simply, BCA is one of only 2 players of national scale that can handle the sales of major car retailers and leasing companies. In my opinion its earnings are very high quality, and the business will grow steadily from here. BCA is very underrated by the armchair "experts" in my opinion. This seems to me like a great buying opportunity. I'm buying all the way to 230p.
