fairly depressing this inexorable slide in their share price, I understand that the results are due out shortly - hopefully positive trading figures/news on disposals will reverse the trend.

Went to a real greek the other day for the 1st time. It was just okay. Price on the high side for the portion size. And quality doesn't really make up for it. Just my thoughts .. but doubtful i'd go back.

Yes, no nasties...and confirmation of their "plans" to build GBK up to 150+ restaurants (from 43 currently). Personally, I'm just gonna sit back and let that happen....or more probably await the likely takeover.

Good, this may put some pressure on Capricorn to get on with whatever their intentions are. Ditching Tootsie's, re-investing a fair proportion of the funds in GBK and staying independent is my preferred route.

I'd wouldn't be unhappy if they took the "Tootsie £20m" to help fund GBK expansion....the Tootsie acquisition now looks like a mistake for CPH...best move on from that.

Clapham House Gets Bids From Private Equity Firms, Times Says By Lenka Ponikelska March 11 (Bloomberg) -- Clapham House Group Plc, the owner of the Gourmet Burger Kitchen and Tootsies restaurant chains, may have received private equity offers for each of the brands and for the company as a whole, the London-based Times reported without saying where it obtained the information. Clapham may have had offers of as much as 20 million pounds ($40 million) from at least three private-equity-backed management teams for its Tootsie brand, the newspaper said. Separately, Clapham rejected an approach from Gondola Holdings Plc for the Gourmet Kitchen brand after it received preliminary approaches from unidentified private equity firms for the whole company, the newspaper said. Clapham's biggest shareholder Capricorn Ventures International Ltd., which has a 25 percent stake in the company, is also considering making a bid, the newspaper said. http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601102&sid=aHG16QUhiWUg&refer=uk

lomax99 - Concur with your comments. I was in Camberley yesterday and Pizza Express and Zizzi (latter in part to ongoing newspaper offer of free main course) were very busy. Augurs well for GBK outlet when opens in new Atrium development at back end of this year. GBK certainly have a good pipeline of sites. See all in stable bar GBK feature in current issue of Tesco Clubcard Deals.

liveinhope - I am pretty sure it's the lower figure, the other one being misquoted in the press, and then re-iterated elsewhere. I must say I am surprised at how weak the share price has been of late, if it falls much further I think that I will be topping up! Capricorn must be pleased as it will just flatter their offer, in comparison to a recent £2.20 share price I would be amazed if Capricorn didn't launch a bid, if they don't quite have the firepower I presume that they will be lining up a partner, as they did with Pizza Express. It would not surprise me if, behind the signs, CPH management were busy working on their own buyout proposals themselves. Our best hope of decent long term returns is for them to stay independent and focus primarily on GBK (and consider divesting/selling other parts of the business to focus on this), either of the buyout scenarios leaves others pocketing the majority of the gains in a float in 3-5 years time.

lomax99 - I wonder if Directors could hive off or sell to their other quoted company, Clerkenwell Ventures (CRK)? Still surprised with which ease and price Capricorn have been able to acquire such shares. Do they actually own 29.99% as last regualtory announcement put them up to 24.93% holding and wouild have expected further announcement if any change in this figure?

A small section in the Sunday Times today suggests that CPH has been approached by several investors interested in acquiring non GBK elements (Tootsie's, Real Greek & Bombay Bicycle Kitchen). CPH are said to be considering their options - the suggestion is that the proceeds from any disposals could be used to crank up investment in GBK, as a means of warding off Capricorn. Presumably any indication of a move in this direction would spur Capricorn into action.

Restaurants need more than just this Thursday to keep the tills ringing and I doubt the CPH stable are really attracting bookings for Valentines....the economy slowing will inevitably hit hard the discretionary spend at outside dining. Any delay in making an offer just suits the bidder.

lomax99 - concur with your comments. I would have hoped share price would have gone up with recent cut in interest rates. Still outlets should enjoy good trade this Thursday. Still puzzles me who is selling unless they really know something we don't.

This drop on little or no volume no doubt suits Capricorn, it just makes their eventual offer price look more attractive, or indeed enables them to consider lowering a price they might previously have considered. Any views on when the slide will abate?

Dresdner are just playing catch-up with the market. At £3+ they said BUY At £1.50 they said REDUCE At £2.20 they said HOLD all in the space of 2 months....they clearly haven't got a clue!!!!

Are DK on a retainer from Capricorn to talk down the price? £2.20 is only slight above the current share price

BROKERWATCH Clapham House upped to 'hold' vs 'reduce' by Dresdner Kleinwort Friday, February 08, 2008; Posted: 07:15 AM LONDON, Feb 08, 2008 (Thomson Financial) Dresdner Kleinwort has upgraded Clapham House Group PLC to 'hold' from 'reduce', with a raised price target of 220 pence from 150 pence on M&A hopes. In a note today, the broker said its upgrade was prompted by news that Capricorn Ventures International -- principal owner of Nando's -- have built a 24.9 pct stake in Clapham House. The broker said it expects the end game to result in Capricorn taking over Clapham House, as it raised its price target, implying an EV/EBITDA multiple of 9.1 times. .
