prettygreen: I believe the vote is today at 4pm GMT. Surprised there's been no rival bid as ETO have a massive library of content ?

grantley: If anyone knows - there was mention about the sterling rate. If the takeover is at $4bn which was £5.60 at the time will that be the price or will it be the sterling equivalent at the time the takeover closes e.g if the pound strengthens will the money we will receive per share increase in line? Alternatively was it the other way round and a fixed sterling price per share was agreed which = $4bn at the time but the that dollar takeover total could fluctuate based on exchange rates? TIA

perky77: Good news for ETO holders. This my true story this week I went to buy on Tuesday in my ISA but couldn't as I hadn't filled in the correct tax form. I filled in the W-8BEN and sent it off, got notification from AJ it had been processed, went to buy yesterday and then realised the W-8BEN form was for US shares not Canadian. So I sent off my NR301 yesterday and was hoping for it to be processed today. Oh well that ship has sailed I am fairly new so will learn from the signs. As others have said ....what others look great for a buy out

masurenguy: I have been gradually liquidating my residual position in ETO over the past 3 weeks and today I sold my final tranche in order to complete my exit. With today's share sales, my overall average exit price over the past 3 weeks was 417p. I have been an investor here for 8 years having bought my first tranche on 30 September 2010. With additional investments, and participation in the rights issue a couple of years ago, my average share cost price was just below 100p so this has been just over a 4 bagger for me over that period. It's been an interesting ride with Marwyn selling their 20% stake 3 years ago to CPPB, followed by ETO taking a larger stake in Peppa Pig and the subsequent placing and rights issue, which saw the shareprice crash down to circa 140p in early 2016. However my perseverance paid off and over the following two and a half years the shareprice more than trebled from that low point, including the 50% rise over the past 12 months. Seems a little strange to finally be out of ETO, which was one of my top two largest holdings for several years but there is always a time to take profits and move on. I think there is still further mileage for the shareprice but I am becoming a bit concerned that we are close to a market top and this could be compounded by various other factors such as Brexit, Trump and trade wars with China. Consequently, I have been decreasing my exposure to equities and increasing my cash position. As a result, I'm now 60% in cash and 40% in equities and will probably increase that ratio to 75/25 by early next year. Having now exited ETO completely, I wont be updating this thread any longer but I would like to wish all current shareholders good luck going forward.
