So many new fake trolls doomed to failure and desperate. It's quite a clever way of controlling a business without paying a takeover premium for it. Given the share price fall it's pocket change to Mike , but maybe he doesn't want to take on all the other Debenhams liabilities V difficult to now argue that this is "just an investment" where SD "wields no influence or control". They are bound by Takeover Panel restrictions until mid-March, following the September comments Please do your own research as always.

Cheshire admits the suppliers are "destabilised"! Really! Well Cheshire needs to look at his performance credit insurance was withdrawn before Mike Ashley wrote to the board. The board of Debtenhams caused the damage to the company not Mike Asley imo and Sir Ian Cheshire comments a deception imo. HTTPs://www.retailgazette.co.uk/blog/2018/12/debenhams-chairman-says-ashley-free-anytime-make-takeover-bid/
Debenhams chairman says Mike Ashley is “free at anytimeâ€￾ to make takeover bid. This is probably the only thing that can save debenhams.
Sunday Papers WEBFG: "The chairman of Debenhams has delivered an ultimatum to Mike Ashley inviting him to make an offer for the entire chain of department stores – if he is serious about wanting to take control. In an interview that will send shockwaves across the High Street, which is facing its toughest ever Christmas period, Sir Ian Cheshire challenged the Sports Direct owner to stump up the cash for a formal takeover bid. - Mail on Sunday" Shocking state of affairs correct all talk without an RNS shareholders being deprived true state of Debtenhams financial position the company could collapse at any time believes Ashley.

Tell that to the industry analysts in the article. They are the ones that quoted 500m total for Ashley to do a fair take over bid. I think they are spot on, 320m for the dept and 200m for the company taking into account the dire circumstances the sector is in, and brexit uncertainty.If he does a takeover bid at around 200m total valuation or 140m for the remainder 70% of the shares he has a good chance of acquiring 100% debenhams on the cheap. It's good enough. The dept might actually even pay itself if the restructuring and the savings they are doing works. You are calling it like it's due tomorrow. 200m of the debt is bonds that expire in 3 years.
Almost everything you mention in your post is wrong. You should go read the latest results presentation document (the long one), it explains everything in great detail. The company isn't being driven into administration at all, the phrase "they lost 500 million in 2018" is very misleading, and the company currently is not at all insolvent. The viability analysis shows it's viable up to at least 2021 with current conditions.The alternative would be for MA to make a takeover bid if he wants the company like Chestire told him, not ridiculous loan shark arrangements that you do with your local pub.

Mike Ashley must be in breach of the takeover rules. By offering 40 million GBP for 10% Http://www.thetakeoverpanel.org.uk/the-code/compliance Please do your own research.
dan they just sold the print firm why do they need to deny anything. It is not Mike Ashley rules he may have 30% but he wanted 10% of the company shares for the loan Sports Direct’s Mike Ashley has sounded the alarm over the future of Debenhams after revealing he offered the embattled retailer a £40m loan to “saveâ€￾ the business in exchange for 10pc of the retailer’s shares. I would have thought that goes behind the backs of the takeover commissions. Please do your own research.

That kind of return is bollocks for a billionaire like MA. It does makes sense to lend part of his stocks like that in order to push the price down to 5 and do a takeover bid at 20 ish. Panicked investors would push the bod to accept. That's what I thought would happen last week to be honest, but it didn't.

It also looks like SPORTS DIRECT not looking for a takeover - All conjecture at the moment - No problems Dan but those 2 news items are from same source and today -

It has been widely speculated that Ashley could be considering a [prepack] takeover of Debenhams, which posted its worst set of results in its 240-year history last month, having already amassed a near-30 per cent stake in the retailer.

🔥🔥🔥 Takeover of debenhams discussed at board level. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/business/2018/09/12/sports-direct-braces-agm-revolt-judges-orders-hand-documents/
Vultures circling for takeover.Who will bid first?Philip Day showing interest too.If so, then can get nasty between him and MA.
Good try Clocktower but I think even you aren't convinced by that... Buy Debenhams, give landlords a choice- move leases into newly created entity at agreed rental prices or stay in the Debenhams entity which will be wound down. Sports direct will make billions. Question is - will it be a hostile takeover or agreed with directors?

Mike Ashley will buy Debenhams and give landlords a choice- transfer your lease to the newly created House of Debenhams entity or stay in the Debenhams entity which I'll wind down. He has used that trick before - check out Heatons in Ireland. With the share price where it is, it is a no brainer to act very soon. The longer he leaves it the price will be higher as Debenhams' performance improves because House of Fraser is no longer a force. That's 10% market share up for grabs. John Lewis retail figures shows the impact. Debenhams has confirmed it in their recent performance. Will it be a hostile takeover?

When you look at Revenue per year 2014-2017 its actually fairly flat. In the same period shareprice has collapsed from 100p to 13p. In need of some serious cost cutting/rationalisation to get profits up again. Re: shorters, Odey may have increased but most others have decreased. Note also how Odey has performed over recent years with VW and Home Retail (Argos takeover by Sainsburys) - they dont get it right all the time Risky for sure, but potential for recovery too

hTTp://infosurhoy.com/cocoon/saii/xhtml/en_GB/top-stories/mike-ashley-eyes-debenhams-days-after-90million-house-of-fraser-takeover/ MIKE Ashley has set his sights on Debenhams just days after his £90million House of Fraser takeover. NC IMMINENT TAKEOVER: Mike Ashley will battle for Debenhams The Sports Direct owner is thought to want to become the “king of the high streetâ€￾. And his next step will be to battle with Edinburgh Woollen Mill owner Philip Day over flagging Debenhams.
This isn't the HoF thread.. As for "well done Debenhams" what for? What happen yesterday was that the market got excited for possible takeover action. Nothing to do with the company
12-08-2018
Itcm1 - no one NEEDS to say why they post except a few obviously have agendas.. I mean .. calling yourself DEBSDOWNER gives the game away doesn't it! I would never tell anyone to buy .. or sell .. here. DYOR and realise that this is currently a high risk investment .. but possible takeover talk adds a little more spice..

Takeover battle imminent. Oh dear shorts are about to get badly burnt. Philip Day will join the bidding war. Massive short squeeze coming. Philip Day will need to move fast to not end up empty handed.
NEW Mike Ashley and Philip Day ready to do battle over Debenhams https://www.telegraph.co.uk/business/2018/08/11/mike-ashley-philip-day-ready-do-battle-debenhams/ Just days after Mr Ashley’s Sports Direct pipped the owner of Edinburgh Woollen Mill to the takeover of House of Fraser, retail sources say both entrepreneurs have trained their sights on its closest rival.

What do people think about Sport directs intention? Will they attempt a full takeover? How would such move affect price surely upward movement? My view is debenhams ia a good purchase for investors at the moment with the knowledge Mike Ashley is in the background, he has made suggestions in the past but not many taken up by board, I think a time will come when he decides take it further and can only be a good thing for the share price.
