You may learn nothing is ever simple at EKT I guess with a smallish investment let it run on Tiger

Can't say I'm really surprised, good news is rare these days. Not long to go now... Equistone rings a very distant bell i think, have you googled it?

rar100 A few points 1/ The buyer is Equistonepe.....ever heard of them ? 2/ Management plan to repay most of the net £95 million to shareholders, but retain some 'to drive the future growth of Chuckit'. Interesting that nowhere in the 15 page circular do they tell you just how much they will keep and how much they will give back to shareholders ? 3/ At a share price of currently 55p, the current market cap of EKT post-announcement is £105 million. This exactly matches the gross consideration, so we can conclude that the market values the remaining business and KD's prospects of making a go of it, at ZERO, even though EKT has just bought Next for £10 million and it was supposed to be profitable ? 4/ The top three have inexplicably awarded themselves £7m of shareholders money while transferring responsibility for this too the remuneration committee who they know will pass this regardless i would imagine.

code12, I read about the chap that was bankrupted and feel very sorry for him especially if he would be looking at 3 to 4 million if he had held his holding to now. Awful. My holding cost about 4k in June last year at about 36p and so I'm happy with the investment - so far... Well I have read the proposal document and presume the sensible thing to do is to sell a proportion of EKT shares via the tender offer which may be 65p as stated or whatever is the price at the time (hopefully not less than I paid). My Interactive Investor platform states interims are on 19.09.19, but the document says the results are expected in October.... I guess that I'm going to have to check the EKT website in September to see what they say re: the tender offer etc. It would be good to know views on Checkit - the product and the new proposed company and also if shareholders are intending to sell shares via the tender offer.

rar100 , If I were you ,research this yourself .thats my honest advice . One shareholder that had shares in EKT and posted on here ended up bankrupt . Its all on the internet and some old closed threads also info on here as well .

My this board has got busy and pretty nasty sometimes... I'm someone who doesn't know the history/background to the past of EKT and a fairly new investor via a tip from Investors Chronicle. I would welcome views as to this latest development, I don't know if it's good or bad. I know Bulgin products and was one reason, probably the main reason why I invested and have read a little here from people not thinking too much of Checkit. So I'm not sure what to do! I have made a small profit and notice the share price lower today (but today is a bad market day), should I sell? I printed off the blurb but yet to digest it all, not at all sure what 'returning majority of net proceeds to shareholders by tender offer entails... I look forward to comments and good luck all

Eggy , When the seeds are sown you do reap the growth if there is any?. Some seeds start to grow on stony ground but fail when the growing gets tough . I think you will find Mr Slater and others advised what should be done but was the advice taken on board .And was it correct. Its ok telling others what to do when its not your own money at stake . Some people never have enough money and want more and more . Some are just bitter and will always want to be the top of the tree. Actually being stubborn and a know it all pasona can take over ones life in some people .. If the organ grinder cannot control the handle and coordinate the monkey then they need to call it a draw and give up . Its how the world is today unfortunately . re-search the old posts . some research is on this BB and on the internet.

Sooty It is sad but ultimately you reap what you sow. It is for the public record that he is bankrupt sadly. He could be living it large in Southport now. Pleased to hear that he has provided some sound advice that pulled you out of Debs. Hopefully Barrie can find his inner peace and move on. My granddaughter is big into yoga and apparently finding inner peace works wonders. Best of luck to him on this. Codey everyone is a leaky sieve. You have fatty Slater, even fatter lying Andy Robinson selling cheap booze Castleford Tiger. He runs dandrgroup.co.uk .And then there is google. By all account you have a first hand perspective on Barrie’s sorry state so not sure why you’re asking in the first place. 56p is a 11 bagger for me. Not quite enough to retire on but getting close. DYOR.

Thanks eg2mrb. Poor sod if only he had held on to his shares. I take it he lost his court case then? I quite liked his QC posts over on the DEB site. Is he really debsdowner? If so thanks Barrie. It was your well informed posts that helped make my mind up to sell out of DEB when they were circa 50p. It's not the first time someone sells at the bottom. Professionals alike. The so called experts told Gordon Brown to sell most of our gold reserves at the bottom? I know a very well known technology fund run by a so called superwoman selling out of technology when the Nasdaq hit 1,000 now at 8,284.................Any guesses?

Lol. Sooty, Barrie lost big style. Lost his shirt, house and everything else. Guess his shares that were bought at 5p would be worth £3-4m now. One of life's ironies i guess. He's now debsdowner

The Board currently expects the tender offer price to be 65p per Ordinary Share (which the Independent Board, having consulted with N+1 Singer, the Company's nominated adviser, considers to represent a fair valuation for the Group). However, as the share price of the Company at the time of making of the offer cannot currently be known, the Board reserves the right to alter this price if the share price of the Company following Completion does not perform as currently expected or, following consultation with Shareholders, a different price would be in the best interests of Shareholders as a whole. Babbler the Board reserves the right to alter this price if the share price of the Company following Completion does not perform as currently expected This sentence extracted from the above paragraph in the RNS is probably why the share price isn't higher

Hi Babbler - maybe that the tender will be for a % of your shares. You'll then be left with another % of shares in Checkit plc. The LTIP payments reported by eg2mrb above are shocking - hopefully they didn't sway the decision to sell?

The Board currently expects the tender offer price to be 65p per Ordinary Share... can buy at 55. What am I missing?
