I nearly sold these a couple of weeks back but the restricted market size was against me.

I'm happy to hold on now... think at least 400p might be possible.

350p= 1.2bil 437=1.5bil surely this will be a starting point if a bid comes. Take it from here and 425p is not that far out. I still would hold on and 475p is quite realistic

Being such a desirable company, with possibly more than one buyer interested, a bidding war could develop and inv post may well come true. Both have been reported in articles I have read. If not Pete/Mitzis have it I think......
A great position to be in either way...........

Further bid will come at around 425p. Bidding war could develop and this could go to 475p

Hi Pete, you must have steel balls to have not sold out at 366. Certainly looks a wise move now.

London shares outlook - Weak after drops in New York, Asia; Lloyds TSB key




LONDON (Thomson Financial) - Leading shares look set for an opening decline this morning, retracing some of yesterday's gains after sharp falls overnight on Wall Street and in Asia amid heightened US recession worries, with FY numbers.............


On the M&A front, Biffa could be active after the Daily Telegraph reported
that private equity firm Terra Firma is in talks with French industrial group
Suez to launch a 1.5 bln stg counter offer for the waste management company.
Earlier this month Biffa's board accepted a formal 350 pence-a-share offer
valuing the company at 1.2 bln stg from a private equity consortium comprising
Montagu and Global Infrastructure Partners, by General Electric.

Terra Firma in talks with Suez over 1.5 bln stg counter bid for Biffa




LONDON (Thomson Financial) - Private equity firm Terra Firma is in talks
with French industrial group Suez to launch a 1.5 bln stg counter offer for the
waste management company Biffa PLC, said The Daily Telegraph quoting sources
familiar with the situation.
Earlier this month Biffa's board accepted a formal 350 pence-a-share offer
valuing the company at 1.2 bln stg from a private equity consortium comprising
Montagu and Global Infrastructure Partners (GIP), an investment group backed by
General Electric.
However, The Daily Telegraph today said that Guy Hands' Terra Firma is now
in advanced negotiations with Suez to form a powerful consortium planning a
rival bid for Biffa.
Sources familiar with the situation said Suez has also held talks with
several other private equity firms, including Montagu, to launch a joint offer
for Biffa.
Despite recommending Montagu and GIP's offer, Biffa also said in early
February that it had been contacted by third parties potentially interested in
submitting an alternative bid proposal.
