The update looked good and I was tempted to buy, but the price rose on the open and I thought I would wait. That gave me time to read this thread and obviously find out about the divestment so although the share price does not look historically high, it really is quite high. So the share price has slipped back a bit, worth a punt yet?

Can't believe the fund manglers have sold on the back of yesterday's update - I'm a buyer. These muppets need to look at what was said yesterday, particularly in light of how much higher the stock has traded in the past, the growth, multiple and yield. Also been far too much bid talk for a bid to not happen imo. These things have murmerings, then quieten down for abit, then bang, bid comes in. Any institutional fund manglers selling now will regret it - can't trust the numpties with your funds.

Agreed sounds satisfactory to me:- Esure Group plc - Trading update for the nine months ended 30 September 2017 A record quarter; raising full year guidance Trading update 2017 2016 Movement Q3 YTD Q3 YTD Gross written premiums (GBPm) 625.8 499.0 25.4% Motor 561.5 430.6 30.4% Home 64.3 68.4 (6.0)% In-force policies (millions) 2.324 2.105 10.4% Motor 1.830 1.530 19.6% Home 0.494 0.575 (14.1)% Additional services revenues (GBPm) 93.6 80.6 16.1% Stuart Vann, Chief Executive Officer of esure Group plc, commented: "The business continues to grow strongly and we delivered a record quarter of premiums at GBP233m. Year-to-date, premiums are 25% higher at GBP626m and policies 10% higher year-on-year at 2.3 million, underpinned by a strong performance in Motor where we are continuing to see the benefits of our proven underwriting expertise and footprint expansion programme which enable us to offer more and more customers access to our excellent products and services. Meanwhile, we remain disciplined in Home, as current market conditions do not provide opportunities for profitable growth. "Our strong performance to date gives us confidence that we will exceed previous guidance. We now expect growth in premiums of 20-25% for the full year and our combined operating ratio to be at the lower end of our 96-98% range, subject to normal weather. "We approach 2018 with confidence and remain well placed to deliver our 3 million in-force policy ambition by 2020."

Quote from the above referenced TMF article. "eSure is tipped by City analysts to flip from an anticipated 5% earnings decline in 2017 to report a 13% improvement in 2018. And this is expected to push dividends northwards again then, from a reduced 12.5p per share in the current period to 14.4p. These projections yield a very-decent 4.6% and 5.2% respectively. I am convinced eSure should prove a brilliant bet for growth and income investors now and in the future."

Yes, the market doesn't appear to be pricing in anyone making a bid substantially higher than the current valuation. There again Mr Market doesn't always get it right. One can but live in hope... and enjoy the generous dividends in the interim.

Certainly interesting times with Peter Wood reportedly looking to sell his 30.8% stake in the company.

'Peter Wood was looking to sell his 30.8% stake in the firm' Wouldn't this result in a mandatory bid for the entire capital of the Co.? If somebody wanted a 'stake' rather than mounting a takeover they'd have to acquire 29.99% (or less) or perhaps I'm mistaken......... Sure Tosca would be happy with an exit. Interesting times.

"Shares in motor insurer Esure have charged ahead of the wider market over the past year, gaining nearly 40% excluding dividends year-to-date. And this morning, the shares have added another 6% after a report published over the weekend suggested that the insurer’s biggest shareholder, Peter Wood was looking to sell his 30.8% stake in the firm. This report has sparked speculation that Esure could fall prey to a larger peer after Wood offloads his stake. According to the Sunday Times, which broke the story, Wood has already been approached by other insurance company bosses about a potential deal, and he believes he can have a deal in place by next month. Chances of a takeover It’s hardly surprising that Esure is being touted as a potential takeover target. The company is on track to nearly double revenue over the space of seven years, from £512m in 2012 to an estimated £900m for 2018. That said, profit during this period has remained stable. Still, the company has proven itself as a dividend champion since its IPO in 2013 having paid out 55p per share in regular and special dividends since 2013, around 18% of its IPO price. Analysts have pencilled in a dividend payout of 12.5p for 2017, giving a dividend cover ratio of 68%. Esure’s interim results showed that at the end of the first half the company had a solvency coverage ratio of 153%, indicating that the firm’s balance sheet is strong enough to support further generous payouts. Esure’s strong balance sheet and record of steady cash distributions makes the company an attractive target for both peers and investors alike. While you should never buy a company just because it’s a rumoured takeover target — in case the deal never materialises — as a standalone business, Esure is an attractive investment in its own right. With a prospective dividend yield of 4.7% and forward P/E of 14.7, the company looks like an attractive income and growth play to me at current levels. The prospect of a takeover is just a bonus." http://www.fool.co.uk/investing/2017/09/18/2-dividend-growth-stocks-with-takeover-potential/

Whatever price it was at anytime over the past 12 months - ranging from 200p to 300p - is largely irrelevant. Any bid premium will be calculated at the shareprice on the date that it was actually made.

It was £3 about 3 months ago so to me £3 isn't a premium. Even £3.25 would seem low. Will be interesting as u say to see what shares do in the morning.

I think it largely depends upon who the successful predator is. A US, or even possibly an Asian/ME, financial services company wanting to move into the UK may be prepared to pay a premium to acquire Esure particularly if there are rival bidders. However, a UK or European operator who sees synergy with Esure is more likely to have a limit upon what they will pay. The headline in the article reflects the valuation at the current shareprice. However, I would guess that a takeout price from an overseas bidder might be in the 300p - 325p range, valuing the company at £1250m - £1375m, but again it might be higher if a real bidding war breaks out. It will be interesting to see what impact this has on the shareprice tomorrow and that may provide some indicators on a takeout price expected by the market.

What would be the expected premium for take out £3.50 - £3.80 or is that too high.
