gersemi: 11 April 2018 FirstGroup plc Statement re possible offer The Board of FirstGroup plc ("FirstGroup" or the "Company") notes the recent movement in FirstGroup share price and confirms that it has received a preliminary and highly conditional indicative proposal from Apollo Management IX L.P. ("Apollo") relating to a possible cash offer for the entire issued and to be issued ordinary share capital of FirstGroup (the "Proposal"). The Board of FirstGroup has considered the Proposal in detail and believes that it fundamentally undervalues the Company and is opportunistic in nature. Accordingly, the Board of FirstGroup has unanimously rejected the Proposal. There can be no certainty that any firm offer will be made nor as to the terms on which any firm offer might be made. A further announcement will be made in due course if and when appropriate. In accordance with Rule 2.6(a) of the City Code on Takeovers and Mergers (the "Code"), Apollo must, by not later than 5.00 p.m. on 9 May 2018, either announce a firm intention to make an offer for the Company in accordance with Rule 2.7 of the Code or announce that it does not intend to make an offer in which case the announcement will be treated as a statement to which Rule 2.8 of the Code applies. This deadline will only be extended with the consent of the Takeover Panel in accordance with Rule 2.6(c) of the Code. This announcement has been made by FirstGroup without the agreement or approval of Apollo. In accordance with Rule 26.1 of the Code, a copy of this announcement will be available on FirstGroup's website at by no later than 12 noon (London time) on 12 April 2018. The content of the website referred to in this announcement is not incorporated into and does not form part of this announcement. The person responsible for arranging the release of this announcement on behalf of FirstGroup is Michael Hampson, Group General Counsel and Company Secretary.

ernestsyngen: Very true Patricia! How do you see the Share Price going this year, historically it always goes up Spring Summer then dips? I hope it does the same this year!
hmkwan: now share price is 107---108 p. maybe buy ? any comm, please.
hmkwan: trade data show,share price move 1-5 p at 2 months. but noted that more "O" trade are display " sell"? maybe inside knew some thing? so waiting to news....
alokarya: Bought some back at 114p. Hope West Face Capital pushes for some changes to get the share price moving.
pyueck: Alokarya. What is the point in your post, nobody knows what the share price will do? Give a big pinch of salt to anybody that says they do.
pyueck: The results on the 1 June will be interesting to see if there has been an uptick in performance to justify the share price rise. New franchise could be good or bad, but at least it allows analysts to paint a good story of things turning round. I think FGP have a good chance of winning more with their Trenitalia tie-ups, again if winning these would be a good or a bad thing time will tell. High cost debt will gradually be rolling off from next year which should have a pretty big impact on profitability if refinanced at lower rates. This is not new information though so doubt realisation of this is suddenly impacting shareprice. Maybe something else is afoot, a floating or sale of their US business, who knows? A resumption in dividend, it's possible I guess but would still prefer the company to focus on paying down debt and increasing margins. Or maybe the results will do FGP's usually trick of disappointing and we will look back and wish we sold at these heady levels!
pyueck: Until the market has any confidence of this company delivering on any of its promises the share price will struggle. The directors must think investors have memories like sieves. We were promised: - Dividends to rise in line with inflation - Then after rights issue £50m dividend first year and then 2-2.5 times cover going forward - capital spending to peak in ye 2016, it didn't it is still rising - margins to be in double figures in medium term (2013 strategy). We are nowhere near and it's 2017. - the rubbish that we have been flogged about the fall in their biggest cost fuel being the reason for greyhounds problems. It's not, it's cheaper competitors like megabus offering as good/better service at lower costs. I still think at some point this stock could come good. The fundamentals are still pretty solid, if the could just improve margins a bit and if they could negotiate lower interest on bonds this could fly. However in my experience there are some companies that just have a habit of continually disappointing and this is one. The results are usually a catalogue of excuses, low fuel, snow, traffic, rain, strikes, unhappy drivers, not enough drivers etc etc. I guess the company is large and every year some things will go wrong but that should just be business as usual not an annual reason as to why they have missed all their targets. Yet still the directors have done very nicely out of this all....
bottomfisher: The weakness of FirstGroup’s share price over the last year, in the face of sharply falling oil prices which one would think would be good news for a global transportation group, is a mystery to me. However, one potential bit of good news is last week’s appointment of Matthew Gregory, 45, as FGP’s new finance director. He replaces Chris Surch, 54, whose decision to leave FGP after just three years had made me a tad nervous. Gregory has been poached from Essentra, a global plastic, fibre, foam and packaging products group. Essentra, which used to be known as Filtrona, might not be a household name, but its market cap is nearly twice that of FGP and its share price performance has been far superior. Judging by the comments of Jeff Harris, Essentra’s chairman, and Colin Day, Essentra’s CEO, Gregory has done a good job and they are sorry to lose him after 12 years. The fact that Gregory appears to be taking a substantial cut in salary to join FGP suggests that he, at least, believes in the FGP recovery story and its ability to deliver “sustainable growth with good financial returns”.
robertfaulkner: Cap of inflation only rise in rail fairs(instead of RPI + 1%) announced today by Gov will not help FGP share price Perhaps it would be better not to win Scotrail??????
