Today's rather encouraging trading update should only add to CAR's appeal for Consort and other potential bidders. For the record, expectations are for 11.4p EPS this year, rising to 12.5p EPS next year: Https://www.investegate.co.uk/carclo-plc--car-/rns/agm-trading-update/201807190700030871V/ "Trading to date in the current financial year has been in line with the Board's expectations. Progress in securing new Automotive lighting and medical development contracts within LED Technologies and Technical Plastics has been good and is in line with our planned timescales. The implementation of our operational improvement plans is well underway and encouraging progress has been made."

1gw - No, that's one Stephen Guy Hill OBE (sources: beta.companieshouse.gov.uk and Google) My own thinking is that this SNH can't be in a concert party with Consort, no pun intended, as it would have had to have been declared. So he must have bought either in hope of an improved offer, or to resist offers and hang in there on fundamental grounds. Presumably he sees a win/win situation.

By my reckoning we now know 31 shareholders holding 86% of Consort, and 14 shareholders holding 66% of Carclo. Not a lot of activity disclosed this week, although more than last week: on the Carclo side mainly steady buying by Axxion (disclosed this week, for buying on 2nd, 6th, 9th, 11th) and on the Consort side only really one big purchase - of 100k shares by Polar Capital on 10th July - matched more-or-less and on the same day by sales by Wellington (70k) and Schroders (20k).

Is he the Stephen Hill who is ex-CEO of FT Group, ex-CEO of Betfair, currently on board of IG Group? hTtp://www.iggroup.com/investor-relations/board-directors

If by realistic you mean cash only forthcoming if recommendation then that could indeed be correct

AgreeAgreeDisagree - institutions will roll into csrt and stay, existing shareholders might buy more as transformationalDisagree - they have accordion facility £100m iirc so able to pay part/all cash presumably subject to plan to repay (sell led etc)Q remains can they risk that.Actual hostile bid would be lower than they would pay for recommendation, because of that risk.

Interesting link - It does a good job of convincing Consort shareholders that CAR is a fantastic bargain. At the same time it convinces me that they are bidding far too low, particularly for an all-share offer. There must be a risk that CAR holders would cash in their new CSRT shares and significantly dent the price for some time. CSRT is not currently in a realistic position to offer any cash alternative which, imo, weakens their position.

Hi Andrew 'Long term' doing some heavy lifting in that sentence I think, but I agree it shouldn't go straight back to 80. If this bid goes away we're back to the long haul I think. Companies that do two quite different things with zero customer or manufacturing overlap are pretty tough to bid for without a recommendation. Still for me the most likely outcome is a recommended deal. That not happening would mean that either CSRT can't see the upside at a price that CAR will accept (with LED not helping, it's not their field) or CAR are extremely stubborn, and their shareholders passive. I'm not holding out much hope for counter-bidder for whole thing.

Well ... I sold out a lot before this situation arose, and have now bought back in. Whilst the drop in price in the past was not welcome, I believe that the company has good product and good potential which will be realised. As Consort believe so too, there are probably others out there weighing up the situation. At today's price, Carclo is a good long term buy, IMHO, and the bid premium - unlikely to go away - makes the buy-back compelling. Anything under 120p is a steal, I think. DYOR and respond accordingly.

a) both sides barely been round the shareholders yet b) try not to bid against yourself If CAR are betting they won't go hostile with an actual offer (I think they're wrong, eventually) then the phony war can last a while

I was certain that Consort Medical was going to bump their offer today if they wanted to maintain momentum in this process - the fact that they didn't surely makes it less likely that this deal will go through before the end of the 28 day period after which they will have to walk away for at least six months...

church - Aberforth I agree we're missing a holdings notice. They may think declaring their position through the OPD is sufficient to replace any holdings notice they were about to give? They declared 8.9m shares (12.2%) as of 4th June and declared 9.9m shares as of 2nd July. So they managed to pick up 1.0m shares between the 2 dates, perhaps largely on 15th June when 4.5m shares were traded. They would have gone through the 13% threshold at about 9.5m shares, so they were well over the threshold by 2nd July - I suppose it is possible that they had a buy order in for 1m shares, which was only completed on 29th June.

So I've checked the notices again, and my revised view of declared activity this week is: Carclo Axxion holdings notice >5% on 2nd July, 5.05% declared Lakestreet 8.3 disclosing buying c. 288k shares on 2nd July Consort Aviva bought 170 shares, sold 280 shares Blackrock bought 431 shares That's out of: 1.7m shares traded on 2nd July in Carclo and about 0.7m in total since then (source: Yahoo! Finance); just a few thousand a day traded on Consort. In theory we ought to have seen an 8.3 from Axxion detailing what it actually traded on 2nd, which would have given us an idea of how much of the 1.7m is accounted for between Lakestreet and Axxion. Good to see that there was some buying of Carclo from institutions on 2nd July, but taking the week as a whole it still seems to me like very subdued activity for a live M&A situation.

And the Henderson sale was back in March 2017, so my previous comments on them being a weak holder DON'T apply. That's also bullish!

I think the Aberforth declarations may be incorrect or incomplete! On 6th June they reported they had increased their holding from 11.58% to 12.18%. On 3rd July they reported their holding was 13.57% and, as 1gw correctly points out, they stated no new dealings since the offer date. SO WHERE IS THE DECLARATION OF THEM GOING THROUGH 13%? This is a statutory declaration regardless of there being an offer. I don't see an RNS for this. Do you agree 1gw or has the heat got to me? In any case, the important point is that Aberforth have been adding in recent weeks, and that's bullish.

Actually, my post 912 is incorrect. Axxion and Lakestreet gave holdings notices (TR-1) saying that they crossed thresholds on 2nd July. Axxion hasn't given an 8.3 for its purchases as far as I can see, but Lakestreet has, disclosing that it bought getting on for 300k shares on the first day, i.e. 2nd July. hTtps://www.londonstockexchange.com/exchange/news/market-news/market-news-detail/other/13703905.html

They may have added since the last publicly disclosed position, but all 3 of those companies reported their position as of 2nd July, the start of the "offer period". Section 3 which should record any dealings was blank. In the case of Aberforth, for example, they state "N/A- Opening Disclosure" under "purchases and sales". Link below. Under the 8.3 rules, they have to disclose dealings by 3:30pm the business day after the dealing. So by now we should have seen any dealings up to and including yesterday. hTtps://www.londonstockexchange.com/exchange/news/market-news/market-news-detail/other/13704035.html

I looked at the shareholder declarations against what I think is a reliable source for holdings data prior to the approach. As per my post of yesterday, I think Aberforth have added, Hendersons have reduced, Schroders added a tiny amount. Apologies if I've got this wrong.

State of play at end of week 1. By my reckoning, at the end of the first week we have had opening position declarations from shareholders holding 76% of Consort's shares and 50% of Carclo's shares. But I haven't noticed a single change reported - i.e. no-one (apart from the intermediaries with their 8.5's) has owned up to buying or selling either offeror or offeree since the process started. Is that a liquidity issue, or a lack of interest issue or an insufficient information issue?

It would clearly be simpler for Carclo to conduct one auction than two, but both businesses are very saleable to trade buyers. Most likely would be a sale of one of the businesses(and possibly Aerospace) and a corporate takeover for the rest. They will obviously know who the likely buyers are and will hopefully have already been in contact. They should have a plan to defend a hostile takeover bid. I just hope they don't go down the route of "Consort are trying to buy the company on the cheap, but please stick with us because we can do a much better job". As somebody else rightly said, Carclo don't seem to have a lot of support from their own shareholders, given the low valuation/share price pre-bid. Consort have been planning this for a while. They have chosen their timing carefully and are several steps ahead. Carclo do need to catch up fast. Consort may go for the kill sooner rather than later as they will lose this advantage at some point.
