Kerry Hufton - sorry for the late reply - I have been away too - They will automatically apply the 42p per share and give you 0.86 Tesco shares for every Booker share you own if you don't say otherwise. You will receive the dividend if you hold your shares until COB 1st of March. You have to 'elect' what you want to do with regard to whether you want more cash, less shares or less cash, more shares. Obvs less cash means less tax to pay to the tax man, if your holding is significant. If you hold them in certificated form, you should have received the paperwork. If via a nominee account, you should ask your broker to make the elections for you (they will probabaly not offer this service voluntarily - you will have to ask). If you want to vote, you will need to get the forms from Booker website. As predicted, if the deal goes through, Charles wilson will be in charge, which can only be a good thing.

I think you get around 0.86 Tesco shares for every 1 Booker share and around 0.42p per Booker Share and a final dividend if you do absolutely nothing. Someone please correct me if I have got this wrong.

Stick with your booker shares. If you have loads, make sure you deal with the mix and match facility (check with your broker) to make sure you don't get stuck for tax. Tesco will see happy days eventually due to Wilson becoming guy in charge. Tesco shares will be good investment (taking into account current wild market activity). Hope this helps.

It depends whether you think Tesco will do well in the future or not, bearing in mind Charles Wilson will probably be running the show eventually. The cash from the deal will attract CGT and the divi from Tesco is meagre at present. As a previous poster said - maybe better to wait until next month to decide. I guess it's unlikely Booker shares will suffer in the long term if the deal is ultimately rejected by shareholders.

Thank you for your posts. It will be interesting to see what major Booker shareholders have to say in Feb, when they will have to vote whether to accept the deal in March. Potentially a spanner in the works for the deal? Booker have being paying a very nice dividend for the last few years, due to their strong cash position, in comparison to Tesco's meagre offering. However, if Charles Wilson takes an active role in Tesco's development, their performance could improve greatly. But I do feel we would be swapping out shares in a cash rich company at the top of it's trading sector, for one in a cut throat market threatened by the likes of Aldi & Lidl...Shame they're not hooking up with Amazon - similar to the Wholefoods deal.

From my calculation you will be about £43 per 1000 shares worse off. If the tesco share price remains 18p lower. If I had Booker shares I would wait until the last moment and decide then.

Tesco is currently trading at around £2.08. I am not sure what presents the best deal right now. Selling all the Booker shares at the current price of £2.26 or getting the 0.861 Tesco shares and 42.6p in cash per Booker share.

OK - Each Booker shareholder will receive 0.861 Tesco shares and 42.6p in cash per Booker share • Based on the closing price of 189.0 pence per Tesco share on 26 January 2017, this represents: – a value of approximately 205.3 pence per Booker share; – a value of approximately £3.7 billion for Booker’s ordinary share capital; So tell me - what do booker shareholders think about the current trading price of 226p? Some 20 odd pence higher than the offer from Tesco?

Well its official. Tesco and Booker merger / takeover will go ahead. I laugh because to me I don't understand how it is a merger between Tesco and Booker. In my personal opinion is seems to come across as a takeover by Tesco of Booker. It will be very interesting now to see how the share price reacts.

Must say it's pleasing to see how perky BOK has become since getting through 220. Maybe people really do take notice of broker recommendations?

wondering if the Competition enquiry would have drawn a different conclusion if P&H had gone bust before they reached a judgment.....

£2.25 was hit today and Booker's share price is making news highs. As news get out that the merger with Tesco is going ahead and one of its main, direct competitor P&H has gone into administration should see the share price appreciate to around the £2.50 level in my opinion.

Today will be extremely interesting. Palmer & Harvey (P&H) has gone into administration. It was a direct competitor and this could mean a significant increase in the share price of Booker as money flows into this. Lets see.

Could this break its 52 week high of around £2.18p?
