they have to get everyone together, arrange meetings etc etc there's no chance of cost buying mayg now would be suicidal 10%+ above the kier offer would be beyond their reach

Interesting article on why Costain and Kier are interested in MG http://www.ft.com/cms/s/0/c15e5432-ac14-11e2-a063-00144feabdc0.html#axzz2RQAY8FgP

hope not. costain doing fine, what about a bid for RNWN with a mcap of £60m. would provide synergies in rail for example. might be worth considering. hopefully no further interest in mayg.

grahamburn, I did of course se the RNS but it's the "Costain is considering its position and will make a further announcement in due course." The longer it takes for the announcement the more likely they are thinking of upping their bid...that I think is worrying.

They have made a statement at 10.54 this morning via an RNS: The Board of Costain Group PLC ("Costain") notes the announcement earlier today by Kier Group plc ("Kier") and May Gurney Integrated Services plc ("May Gurney") that they have agreed the terms of a recommended offer for the entire issued and to be issued share capital of May Gurney. Costain is considering its position and will make a further announcement in due course. _____________ Quite a bland, yet normal, statement for this kind of situation. Guess they will consult, cogitate and consider for a day or so (especially looking at the irrevocable undertakings which have popped up) and then bow out gracefully. The new agreed price is a long way north of the initial "agreed" offer so Costain would find it hard to justify an offer a good way north of the new "agreed" offer.

It's taking a long time for a statement to come from Costain...that is dangerous it means they are thinking about it!

Does possibly leave them looking like takeover material? 2nd attempt at step change takeovers, 2nd fail probably, might mean some interest again in them?

Right men - head down and get on with running and growing the company. Leave MG alone ! Keep your ego in check. Enough nonsense with trying to buy other businesses that could jeopordise the current value.

Kier bid in , values MAYG at £ 221m, considerably more than the COST cap , so I think thats the end of it: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/newsbysector/constructionandproperty/10014428/Kier-trumps-Costain-with-bid-for-May-Gurney.html
