cerrito: Interesting extract of an article in today's FT on ETO quote eOne shares have hovered around £2.30 and £2.40 for several months giving the group a market value of £1.02bn. Mr Throop expressed frustration at that performance, pointing to a recent assessment of the company’s library, which was independently valued at $1.5bn. Most of eOne’s direct competitors, such as Studio Canal and Lions Gate Entertainment, are private or listed in the US, and Mr Throop said he believed that had weighed on the share price. “There are no media specialists; they are generalists [in the UK],” he said, pointing to a recent trading update that said profits for the year would be in line with consensus estimates. “The stock before we did the update was around £2.30 and £2.40 and after we did the update it was the same.” Malcolm Morgan, a Peel Hunt analyst who covers eOne, said there were “differences in interpretation”; for cash flow and debt between UK and US investors in valuing media stocks. “It makes for difficulties in telling an equity story consistently in the UK. But is eOne great at its job? Absolutely. There is increasing demand for original creative output and there are more people with more appetite for content on more devices”. eOne was originally listed as an income trust in Canada before switching to Aim, the UK’s junior market in 2007. It struck gold that year with the £49m acquisition of Contender Entertainment, the maker of Peppa Pig. “I thought it was expensive at the time but it was the best deal we’ve ever done,” Mr Throop said. Annual sales of Peppa Pig licensed products exploded, eventually hitting $1bn. Since then eOne has graduated to the main market and is a member of the FTSE 250 index. While Mr Throop has not ruled out shifting the listing to the US or a reverse takeover of a listed US entity, it is unlikely such a move would happen soon. He noted that exchange traded funds that hold the shares would be forced to sell in the event of a UK delisting “which would have downward impact on our stock price”. “We’re trying to educate and bring on more North American shareholders,” he said. eOne and its famous pink pig are not giving up on the UK just yet. unquote

1gw: To be fair through, there's some cyclicality on the film side of ETO isn't there? I would imagine there's a bit of a track-record premium in the ITV price as well. I like both stocks at the moment although much more heavily invested here right now. Near-term outlook for ETO share price probably quite dependent on the trading update that I would think should be due anyday now (with backstop of the AGM). Given the robust rejection of the ITV approach and the news posted here over the last few months I am expecting something of a barnstorming update - and I suspect I'm not alone in that. So if it turns out to be just a wishy-washy statement majoring on being on track to double the size of the business rather than a specific commentary on how well the current year is going and how strong the immediate outlook is, there may be a negative reaction.

raffles the gentleman thug: The consensus on this thread might be that a counter proposal is coming, but the ETO share price is telling you that shareholders don't have any confidence that this will be the case

raffles the gentleman thug: On the basis ITV have a mole somewhere leaking information on their intentions to the market on more than one occasion I think one just has to watch the ITV and ETO share prices like a hawk and they will tell you everything.

sportbilly1976: ITV comment, incl confirmation it was a cash offer: Statement regarding Entertainment One ITV plc ("ITV") notes the announcements by Entertainment One Ltd. ("eOne") and confirms that it has made a proposal to the Board of eOne to combine the two companies. The Board of eOne has rejected this proposal. ITV has proposed an offer for eOne (the "Proposal") of 236 pence per eOne share in cash valuing the entire share capital of eOne at around GBP1,030 million. The Proposal represents a significant premium over the undisturbed eOne share price, prior to the impact of recent bid speculation. ITV has a clear strategy that, over recent years, has created significant value for shareholders. A key part of that strategy is continuing to build a scaled international content and global distribution business, with a focus on US scripted content. ITV believes that the proposed combination with eOne has strong strategic rationale and would further accelerate ITV's rebalancing of the business. Further information The Proposal represents a premium of: -- 19.3% over eOne's share price of 197.90 pence on 8 August 2016, the last business day preceding the Proposal; -- 41.1% over eOne's weighted average share price of 167.28 pence in the 1 month period to 11 July 2016, representing the last business day prior to further speculation about ITV's interest in eOne; and -- 46.7% over eOne's weighted average share price of 160.89 pence in the 6 month period to 11 July 2016. The Proposal is subject to normal diligence and any transaction would require Board approval and customary other approvals. ITV also reserves the right to withdraw, vary or amend the Proposal, in whole or in part, at any time. There can be no certainty that any transaction will ultimately take place, nor as to the terms on or structure by which any such transaction might be constituted.

farmai: look I was just making the point that I am sure they would be pragmatic when it comes to their exit - if its cash I can't see them willing to lose any money, however if its a share exchange into something which might help them extract value from ETO, I can't see why they would object to selling at cost - if thats 230p or 240p. As for ITV I can see them extracting considerable value from ETO, and their own share price responding positively to an acquisition. But obviously they would need a strategy to get rid of film distribution and monetise Peppa Pig. But I remain amazed that the share price is this low and analyst price targets so immodest, when it was happily trading much higher for eighteen months between 2014 and mid 2015. And when the value of the content library alone is worth in excess of the current share price

soundbuy: For balance H/T FT AV Singer From our perspective we would be surprised if ITV would want to buy the whole of ETO. As a starting point the TV assets would be of interest to ITV, but Film is not its natural territory and this is a very significant size business. Even the TV assets may not fit correctly given ETOs shape/structure and with a large component of profit being derived from one children’s product (Peppa Pig). We clearly have concerns about ETO’s weak cash generation and we would question whether ITV investors would want to dilute the cash performance of ITV. While the shares may see a little short term benefit this is likely to wane rapidly if there is no supportive factual confirmation. Our view based on fundamentals remains unchanged at this time. Peel Hunt We would not be surprised if ITV was interested in the TV production assets, but do not expect it to have long-term interest in Film distribution or children’s IP. Market frustration with ETO cash flows and communication has left the shares modestly valued, and so vulnerable. Corporate action is a more realistic mechanism for closing the headline value gap than trading outperformance. For ITV, the relative scale makes this a modest risk event. For ETO it is high risk. Whither the share price should the ITV bid now not appear? Metrics: Deals for TV production assets have taken place c9.5x to 13.5x (max for Talpa). If we look at FY2017 forecasts for ETO, EBITDA from TV (including (Peppa Pig) is set at £99m. If we value this on say 10.5x, it suggests £1.04bn. Film distribution is trading weakly, so say 5x EBITDA of £56.7m suggests a value of c£283m. Let’s assume no cost for head office. So an EV of c£1.32bn. Less significant minorities (Mark Gordon and Peppa Pig) of say £150m and net debt of £334m, including IPF. This would give an equity value of £840m or c£2 a share. For context, ITV will have EBITDA in FY2017 of £1.07bn and net cash of £259m Advantages to ITV: Entertainment One offers ITV substantial TV production assets, not least is the majority share in Mark Gordon Associates. We would not expect ITV to be interested in the film distribution. Additionally, we would argue ITV should sell Peppa Pig (we see the maximum value achievable as the product enters the US market, remember Bob the Builder). ITV would not need to overpay given the weak levels of support for ETO as a free-standing company and given the cash flow profile and communication issues of last year (on downgrades refinancing and acquisitions). The deal itself, if £1.3bn, is about right and not a major risk for ITV. ETO is forecast to generate c.£105m NOPAT pre-minorities in FY2017, which net of funding would give c£40m to £60m uplift to ITV (tax and synergies are guessed at) c 5% upgrade. ITV’s own strong balance sheet and prodigious cash flows would easily fund the deal before net disposal receipts. ITV’s own financial controls and management reputation would resolve potentially the short comings in the existing Entertainment One Equity story. Low risk/high risk: Today’s news is relatively low risk for ITV. But we are entering a high-risk phase for ETO. What price will key ETO shareholders hold out for? What happens if ITV is seen to take a close look and then walk away? ETO recommendation and target price: We leave our £2 share target price and Add recommendation unchanged today. If the market price approaches that £2 level, investors will need to be realistic about the risk/reward balance sans bid.

greek islander: Time for a moan. My portfolio of profitable investments, all performing hugely well has been very badly hit recently - Rivaldo puts it down to profit taking, but I see a general malaise in the market especially where really good stocks are concerned. Some stocks like QPP and ASC have localised problems which can explain the drift but others such as ETO, SMDS, WKP, ARM, ETO, EZJ and P500 and others should all by rights be solid and steady at worst. No clear logic in the weakness of any of the above's share price. ETO share price drop has been very dramatic - it's just good (I think) that I haven't employed an automatic stop loss as some of my friends do. While the FTSE has been coming back up this week or so, my portfolio has declined particularly dramatically to the point where I am starting to get concerned. 50% of my, admittedly huge, gains in the last eighteen months seem to have just drifted away. It is very disconcerting and though I just accepted the inevitable fall back around mid February, it has steadily continued. Am I alone?

drsmessguide: Growing disparity between the NAV of MVI which is 78% invested in ETO and the ETO share price. Discount about 30% with BREE also performing well which makes up about 20% of MVI. Option to cash in shares at NAV in 2016 if the share price doesnt reflect the NAV. MVI up about 1% today compared to ETO at 7% I suspect though that this mechanism of buying ETO at a marked discount is well known now.
