stemis: I think that because they are a concert party they won't be able to use the 90% rule to enforce a purchase of any minority. Do they really want the hassle of a load of small shareholders? Plus, of course, for Lumiere to get to 50% and control FFI, is harder when at least 38.4% of the rest aren't selling. Today I can sell my holding at 25.05p. Note in the announcement - "Lumiere has purchased 16,953,018 FFI Shares in the market at a price of no more than 25p per FFI Share That means someone else is buying...

stemis: https://www.investegate.co.uk/lumiere-acquisitions/rns/recommended-mandatory-offer-for-ffi-holdings-plc/201907021710542627E/ Lumiere may purchase or arrange to purchase FFI Shares otherwise than under the Offer, at the Offer Price of 25 pence per FFI Share. FFI Shareholders interested in selling their FFI Shares in cash should contact Cantor Fitzgerald Europe on +44 20 7894 7590 who have authority to make market purchases on behalf of Lumiere (subject to normal settlement). I'm guessing it's Lumiere in the market offering to take any shares at 25p. You may wonder why they are bothering when they are making a bid. They need 75% to delist the company. At the moment the concert party controls 68.4%. There's very little free float. Maybe they are worried they won't get enough acceptances? Personally I'll wait. They may find they need to up their offer to get what they need. 5p on the outstanding 30% or so would only cost them £2.4m.

masurenguy: A takeout was always on the cards here but Lumiere have picked up a real baragain @25p when the price should have been at least 50% higher ! Today, Lumiere agreed to acquire 47,476,547 FFI Shares, representing 30.1 per cent. of the Total FFI Shares, from Steven Ransohoff, the CEO and executive director of FFI and The Crystal Court Trust, a trust of which Steven Ransohoff and his immediate family are the beneficiaries (the "Sellers"), at a price of 24.99 pence per FFI Share (the "Acquisition"). It is expected that the Acquisition will complete on or around the date of this Announcement. As a result of the Acquisition, under Rule 9 of the Takeover Code, Lumiere is required to make a mandatory cash offer (the "Offer") for the FFI Shares not already held or agreed to be acquired by Lumiere, at a price of 25 pence per FFI Share (being not less than the price per FFI Share being paid to the Sellers). Lumiere will make the Offer through the publication and dispatch of the Offer Document and Form of Acceptance, both of which will be posted to FFI Shareholders as soon as reasonably practicable and, in any event within 28 days after the date of this Announcement, other than to FFI Shareholders resident in a Restricted Jurisdiction.

The increase in liabilities is due to (1) deferred consideration and (2) liabilities for production costs, for which they have the cash sitting in restricted cash (and which is not included in their net cash figure).

daz: Trading statement out today, doesn't read at all well. EBIT expected to be in the range of $7.5m to $11.5m, when they made $6m at the interim's. Some revenue has moved from Q1 to Q2. hTTps://www.investegate.co.uk/ffi-holdings-plc--ffi-/rns/trading-statement/201903040700066731R/ It look like some people knew about the weak trading and that's why the share price has been weak.

carcosa: That 'one person' might have been me and it is based on prior experience of a company many years ago that made cookers. That company was highly profitable but the Board backed themselves and due to the low free float forced a cheap sale. The rationale for a MBO is this: There is a small free float ~30% from memory; less during the IPO. So existing shareholders cannot really do anything to stop an MBO offer. The company has already tapped the markets to fund the acquisitions so that's quasi free money. For whatever reason(s) the share price is ridiculously low. Therefore if existing Management and associated friends want to take the company private again then now is the time because it is so very cheap. That then gives them options; Bring another private equity onboard, take relatively large future dividends, sell off part of the company, or re-list the company in a few years at several 100% premium to current/buy-out share price. Will it happen? Well they did say "the Board is clearly disappointed by the Company's poor share price performance since IPO and is committed exploring the options to address this issue."

tsmith2: This post by naked investor is bang on:You guys need to do your research. This is a seriously well-regarded company. Everybody in the film and entertainment business speaks highly of Steve and FFI. Everybody. I’ve spoken to 30 people. Producers. Financiers. Competitors. FFI have such a strong franchise.re headwinds previously referred to. The core business is basically flat at best hence why they’re moving into other service lines. But the completion bond isn’t about to die (not a single insider has said that) and will be around 10 years from now. And these guys have a monopoly on the market. It’s not even like there is an airbus to challenge them. Please keep selling shares at these crazy levels so I can keep topping up. You’re nuts to invest in anything if you lack the time, resources or initiative to research the industry, the company and the people. Producers and financiers will tell you that the macro story for content is the best it’s ever been. Ever. So considering the strength of the platform (they get so much information flow) they’re extremely well positioned to benefit from the content explosion the industry is seeing.- re ebit don’t forget the amo as a result of goodwill on some of the acquisitions so it’s not a like for like.- Pandas is priced at a negative value and it hasn’t even been released in its target market (China) yet. IMAX are releasing it in March. Anything panda related has done well at the box office.- reel media is an MGA for the biggest insurer to the film and entertainment industry in north America with the longest history. That should command a min 10x EBITDA multiple. Look at the accounts - they’re expecting EBITDA of $6-11m per year! Hence the high contingency!- stop obsessing over the share price which is suffering as a result of nobody doing their bloody homework. the fundamentals are strong (macro and company level) and look at the insider ownership!- this is Hollywood’s strongest and longest franchise (think of all the producers, studios, financiers that have come and gone over the years) trading at an insanely low ebit to EV multiple of less than 4x.But guys, do what you want. Your selling benefits the insiders (I expect strong buying this month if it’s not been done already the last 3x trading days) and the investors that have done the work and can hoover up your sales.I don’t know if the share price will reflect the above anytime soon...(the market is a voting machine in the short run)...but in the long run it’s a weighing machine and these guys are a best in class franchise in a growth industry trading at an absurdly low valuation. Eventually the share price will reflect that.

carcosa: Pireric, good post. Going back to the query arising from the recent twitter post and in particular the 'No Colour' statement, the phrase is a standard everyday investment terminology which you will hear in practically every analyst meeting. It is as standard as 'long', 'short'. The phrase means a request for additional details. Hence Robert Churchlow was indicating Investor Relations were unable/unwilling to explain the reasons for the CFO departure. As for the company going back to being private then all I can say is that if the MBO want to do a buyout then they can certainly engineer that or take the company private with existing shareholders. Unfortunately I have seen such occasions over the years where they can effectively cause the share price to tumble, say there is no point in remaining listeed and that's that. Job done. Bear in mind that the CEO effectively controls 55% of the company. Furthermore 30% is owned by Golden Sun (Enter latest name version here) which online research suggests is a bit dodgy. Therefore it is not without merit that after this large acquisition trail they have been on that FFI decide to scurry away. But will they do that? The CFO has little experience comparable to his current role but over the last 20 years or so his CV appears to be clean in the finance industry. So there are no obvious signs that he intends to be under-handed with shareholders. Furthermore the earlier profit warnings were due to understandable, although unwelcome, reasons. Further negatives may arise over problems in integrating these acquisitions as they are geographically diverse and it's all new to management. But everything has a price and at current share price there seems to me to be more risk being 'out' than being 'in'. One positive RNS has the potential to turn the share price around very quickly. Recent weeks have shown large upturn in the daily trading volumes, undoubtably a lot is very speculative and has given rise to a volatile share price. I guess that will continue until a trading statement of the Interims (December?) are issued.
