roddiemac2: jon1962, The price of the shares during the dot com bubble is not a fair comparison , and therefore not relevant. Grosvener , If you take the time to read the statement you will see that the offer has nothing to do with childcare; there is an international software company involved here. richjp, I hope you are still out there. I have held a considerable number in my ISA for many years , and have had most of my original investment back in dividends to date . The offer suits me nicely.
jon1962: Remember these when they were over 2 quid! Have they done a share split over the years

tmfmayn: yep, FY results due this week or next I think hopefully the chumps will also include an update on the strategic review wishful thinking perhaps, but at least the ongoing stock-exchange OPD requirements mean EDP remains open to bid discussions a non-exec at Sanderson PLC has bought a few more EDP shares recently. Sanderson PLC owns 2.3% of EDP and its directors now now 0.7%.
cwa1: Half year results out in case anyone had missed them:- http://uk.advfn.com/stock-market/london/electronic-data-processing-EDP/share-news/Electronic-Data-Processing-PLC-Half-year-Results/71633193
tmfmayn: NickK1, great minds -- I was just about to post about Sanderson. Its investment goes back to 2012, when it spent £131k on 292,500 shares = 45p each. Interesting the directors of Sanderson own a further 67,587 shares. The statement issued by Sanderson is an opening position disclosure prompted by the review and stock-exchange rules. If Sanderson subsequently deals in its EDP shares, it will have to issue a revised shareholding update. Anyway, I think it is bullish a sector player holds some EDP stock and might know a few potential bidders -- Sanderson may be too small to bid for EDP itself.
tmfmayn: roddiemac2, I believe these are the latest RNS holdings of the three: Boyles: http://www.investegate.co.uk/elec-data-process-/edp/holding-s--in-company/201602221230067463P/ Oleson: http://www.investegate.co.uk/elec-data-process---edp-/rns/holding-s--in-company/201508261044381343X/ Ewing Morris: http://www.investegate.co.uk/elec-data-process---edp-/rns/holding-s--in-company/201412191509443574A/ I reckon they represent 17.87%, 5.25% and 5.15% respectively. Each should be issuing an OPD soon to clarify what exactly they own now. A few OPD RNSs have already been issued, including some from who appear to be individual investors (Spencer Crookes and John Rockliff) Good point about Heller. I always thought it odd that EDP struggled to sell its properties despite Heller running London & Associated Properties and presumably knowing the ins and outs of the sector. Although looking at L&AP's performance over the years, maybe it is not that surprising. Hopefully he is keen to want out and get a good price.
tmfmayn: Richjp, there is another Thread on the EDP ticker that is (slightly) more active
tmfmayn: A bidder may be looking at culling central costs. In particular, the board earned £400k last year. Stock-exchange charges, broker fees etc may all disappear as well. Could all make a difference on a business that reported only a £377k operating profit last year. Also, a rival software supplier was bought by a (now-ex) EDP customer the other year. So another customer buying EDP might make savings, too, to justify a premium. Well, let's see anyway.
cwa1: Hmmmm. It's alive! And the day befoe XD to boot. Not a coincidence, I suspect. Pick up the 3p today and next year's already mooted dividend of 5p gives a total of 8p in a year's(and a few days!) time. On the purchase price of 72p that's a yield of over 11% to start with. OK, the share price should come back by some, or all, of that but if the company shows any sign of health it might well not-or even improve. Worth a punt I feel.
