Definitely think it benefits US investors - a very sensible move - no doubt shorters will hate it and say they are obscuring something.

Both UK & US markets are moving up as Shorters begins to close their positions,as the days are nearing 1st March , the exit to the door might be like a bottle neck and many trapped . The smart shorters cover their positions now rather than wait till the last minute.

A neat way to add USD43M potential to the existing buyback scheme and call it something else IMO and it will accelerate the exit of those holders looking to clear (for whatever reason) clearly the company are frustrated with the weak share price and are looking for ways to address the issue, how many quarters will they roll it for .. :o)

Seem like this scheme has stop the rot , definitely shorters are start to cover their positions . By the look of it ,SP can fly till 1st March . Shorters buying back if they can see profit or even at a small loss .

Shareholders are deciding for themselves all the time whether or not to buy or sell at the existing share price. The company is using the opportunity of a very low price to suddenly achieve a much larger share repurchase at no additional cash cost to itself. From the company's point of view this is logical and is brought about by the unusual mix of parameters which combine at this particular time. Ongoing shareholders will hopefully see the benefits of the arrangement in due course.

scrwal- I've just checked the rules for ftse250 index review's and it depends on their position in the ftse all-share on 27th Feb. If they remain in today's position, they will remain in the ftse250.

Buy backs can be good but if the share price goes sideways then it's a problem for DEC. The market value has dropped significantly and a further drop of 10-15% is very likely putting it below the automatic exit point for the FTSE 250 - doesn't matter what nav etc people come up with, the poor price performance coupled with buybacks could relegate the company next quarter. It may be saved in the current quarter by the performance of PZC ORIT and EBOX but a concerted short attack could change all that.

However Rusty never thinks after this scheme . Just look forward after this , share price will start to fall again as there is no more support , this is just a temporarily measure imo .

"Rusty says that the current share price doesn't reflect the quality of the company etc and it's in shareholders interests. So why do they think a holder wants to make a part disposal of a holding at a deeply undervalued price - "

Because it allows certain forced institutional investor sellers (eg M&G?) to dispose of shares in a more orderly fashion rather than dumping in the market as they've been doing until now.

I personally think it's a clever move by the company, but acknowledge there will be different opinions on this. FWIW I won't be accepting any offer on mine, instead I'll be taking the dividend in full.

Seems like desperation really. Rusty says that the current share price doesn't reflect the quality of the company etc and it's in shareholders interests. So why do they think a holder wants to make a part disposal of a holding at a deeply undervalued price - wouldn't the holder either sell out because of the underperformance or keep the holding, collect the dividends and wait for the price to rise to a point where it does reflect the quality.

Also any shares purchased by DEC form part of the total allocated for the buybacks so they are trying to use part of the dividend to offset against the buyback allocation.

It will be interesting to see how close the election date is to the 5 business days used to calculate the offer price - a nice window for shorts to attack possibly.

This is really clever move. Very American - they like sneaky tender offers

Buy the shares, sell them back at a minor premium and get a 30% uplift in the return as you dont pay witholding tax.

Not a great issue for UK retail in a wrapper but a great deal for hedgies, pension funds etc.

Yes buybacks at this level make a lot of sense to me given that DEC are saving paying out ~30% p.a. dividend on the bought back shares (which are cancelled). Even if DEC borrowed some cash at say 5-10% specifically to buy back shares while the price is around this level they would be saving 20%+ p.a. after financing charges.

By my reckoning, one would have to be giving up (i.e. selling in the tender) approx 7.3% of one's holding in order to receive the cash equivalent of the dividend due (if one were instead to do nothing). Have ignored any tax implications in coming to this figure, as the tax depends on the individual circumstances. Would be interested to know if anyone calculates differently. No advice given or intended.
