The rise continues. At 354p this morning the shareprice is now up by 60% over the past 12 months !

Yes it is and that was exactly what my post #2551 re ATH was based upon. Market Cap is of course purely determined by the number of shares in issue x the current shareprice. Back on 1 July 2015, prior to the 4 for 9 rights issue that subsequently took place on 15 September, the ETO shareprice was at an all time high of 366p. At that time they had 295.8m shares in issue so the market cap was £1,082.6m. Currently there are 461.2m shares in issue and at the current shareprice of 348p, the market cap is £1.605.0m and therefore nearly 50% higher than it was on 1 July 2015.

Sorry to drag up an old argument on the ATH side, but isn't the best comparison that of MCAP on any 2 given dates ?

Well both the shareprice and the average daily trading volume have now increased by 25% over the past 6 weeks and the price has also moved well above the 300p target contained in the last brokers note issued by Peel Hunt on May 3. This has also highlighted the fact that director sales are not always a negative indicator. Having sold 1.17m shares @£2.93 in mid-February, Darren Throop is £550K down on that transaction compared to holding on and selling today. Mind you I doubt that he is feeling much regret over this since he still owns 8.7m shares which have increased in value by £4.35m since then !

IMO they will be taken out within the next 12 months.

Yeah, I guess you could use that analogy in the context, for example, of my original "apples" being genetically modified by taking up the 4 for 9 rights issue in Sept 15. That of course impacted the cost price of shares that anyone was holding prior to that date and also the subsequent market cap of the company. New shareholders, post rights issue, can just compare apples with apples.

So in bald terms you are not comparing apples with apples regarding historical share prices but, rather apples and something that has been genetically modified.

mip 55 - 2554: I don't disagree with anything you said Masurengy but you are attempting to convert simple share price with a dilution factor which will not apply to every shareholder. That is absolutely correct mip55 and it is also what I actually stated in the last sentence of post #2553. "The subsequent and contemporary shareprice is only relevant in isolation to those who invested after the rights issue in 2015 because their initial valuation has not been impacted by it."

"I had no wish to cause you palpitations so please calm down and take it easy." LOL - I am perfectly calm and don't have any palpitations. You clearly are totally unable to deal with any form of rational explanation so you have to resort to idiotic & nonsensical comments such as this. "Today you have gone on to state ETO hit an all time high today. Rubbish." Well you obviously lack any intellectual capacity to enable you to understand post #2553 "Take your 500% profit (really???)and enjoy it" LOL - you even have to question this when it is all well documented on this thread and its predecessor which dates back to 2007. On that prior thread it is clearly recorded that I first bought into ETO in September & October 2010 at the prices detailed in the header above but heigh ho, if you also want to cast doubt upon that too then I really couldn't care less. Masurenguy 5 Oct '10 - 382 of 7499: You're welcome. I recently bought in and have just topped up @71.9p this morning. "No more from me." Just as well since you have absolutely nothing that is either interesting or informative to contribute. "I spent my entire working life regularly dealing with idiotic people and I have no desire to do so now in retirement" RLMAO - well enjoy your retirement Mr Meldrew - I doubt that your former colleagues miss you much !

Masurenguy; Sorry, I obviously hit a nerve there with my post criticizing your assessment of ETO. I had no wish to cause you palpitations so please calm down and take it easy. 'It is very easy to make a claim without any attempt whatsoever to substantiate it when challenged.' you state in your post of 2550. I previously stated a simple FACT; The share price of ETO in early July 2015 was around 370p. The price at the close of business today (almost three years later) was 330p FACT. Today you have gone on to state ETO hit an all time high today. Rubbish. You are making yourself look really silly. Take your 500% profit (really???)and enjoy it No more from me. I spent my entire working life regularly dealing with idiotic people and I have no desire to do so now in retirement, so carry on believing what you will and Good Luck.

I don't disagree with anything you said Masurengy but you are attempting to convert simple share price with a dilution factor which will not apply to every shareholder. To keep things simple and straightforward the market as a whole must have a clear reference point with which to judge the overall performance of a share surely? If charts showing relative performance before / after dilution were freely available then perhaps we wouldn't be having this discussion?

I disagree mip55. What matters most is the profit or loss that you have made on your investment if you are an existing shareholder. The valuation of your investment will be initially determined by the price that you paid and subsequently impacted by any rights issues and/or dilutions. To have any relevance, historical price comparisons must take that into consideration. When the rights issue occurred in 2015 the average share price paid by the CPPB was reduced by circa 15% from 269p to 230p. The latter, not the former, is the price that they will use to determine their profit or loss when they finally dispose of their investment whenever this might occur in the future. The current equivalent to the shareprice that existed prior to the rights issue is the relevant factor to those that invested prior to that rights issue. The subsequent and contemporary shareprice is only relevant in isolation to those who invested after the rights issue in 2015 because their initial valuation has not been impacted by it.

Sorry but while I agree ETO is doing extremely well for us, to state that the share price is at an all time high is misleading ....as a simple glance at any financial providers five year chart will readily reveal. To attempt to factor in dilution is a red herring because the charts, whom any prospective investor will be consulting, do not show it.The fact remains that the share price was x pence five years ago and is x minus a little bit today. One hopes that we will erode the difference sometime in the near future and we CAN say that we are at an all time high!

The ETO shareprice hit an ATH today. The CPPB must be pleased with their investment here. This is now up by 45%, based on their subsequent average cost of 230p per share after the subsequent rights issue, after buying their initial 18% stake for 269p from Marwyn Investors just under 3 years ago. If the CPPB had invested in a FTSE 100 tracker fund instead of ETO they would have only achieved a 26% increase over that same timeframe. ETO has proved to be a good investment to date both for them and also for other long term shareholders here. However, the gains for the latter will vary considerably according to their individual investment timeframe.

"I find it amusing that you are able to manipulate and interpret figures to suit your argument. I have no intention of entering into an argument about the matter" I have not "manipulated" or "interpreted" anything - just pointed out the facts. It is very easy to make a claim without any attempt whatsoever to substantiate it when challenged. You obviously have no intention of "entering into an argument about the matter" since you clearly cannot provide any evidence to dispute my analysis. Furthermore I don't have any particular "argument to suit" either ! I'm a long term shareholder here, as indicated in the header, and I built my stake here in the very early days. Since then I have sold circa 50% of my overall holding (some of those sales are recorded on this thread) since it often makes sense to take some profits off the table and to re-balance a portfolio. My residual holding is currently circa 500% up on my average cost after factoring in the additional discounted shares acquired during the 2015 rights issue and the subsequent dilution from the two share issues in January and February this year. I don't fall in love with any share and if my confidence in the future potential of this company eroded then I would have no compunction in selling the rest of my shareholding.

I find it amusing that you are able to manipulate and interpret figures to suit your argument. I have no intention of entering into an argument about the matter, but the simple fact is that in early July 2015, the share price of ETO was above 370p, irrespective of the number of shares in issue. Today, very nearly three years later, it is around 330p. ETO has performed well of late, but so too, thanks to the positive influence of the markets, have a great many other shares, some better than ETO, others not as well, but the reality is that in the last three years, ETO is still below the price it was in July 2015. Still, believe what you will and I genuinely hope that ETO will reach the dizzy heights of three years ago and that recent performance is not just a 'blip'.

That's not correct. The current price of 329p is the equivalent of circa 422p prior to the substantial dilution from the rights issue in October 2015 and the subsequent placings in January and February 2018 to increase the stake in Peppa Pig and Mark Gordon. The highest price achieved prior to the 2015 rights issue was circa 360p so we're currently close to the ATH of 329.4p hit on 5 January this year.

Agreed, but in fairness, the share price is still a long way short of where it was almost three years ago, in July 2015 and in that time there has been rights issues.

Well getting into theme parks would obviously provide more synergy with someone like Disney but I still view the most likely predator as someone more focused on digital content. Patient shareholders have had a good run here over the past 12 months with the shareprice having increased by nearly 50% from 221p on 5 June 17 to 327p this morning. :o)

Does that mean that we can add Disney to the potential list of suitors with the potential synergies of media content, merchandise and theme parks?
