mhin2, "Seems to me many do not realise that the liquidity issue seems to have been just that a short term liquidity crises caused by card acquirers.." But as I look back at FLYB's track record it's been loss-making nearly every year that it's been listed. That's not a short-term thing, that's a long term useless management / poor business model thing. JakNife

Flybe also has a pension deficit which Connect Airways is also going to make extra payments into, to sure up.

Flybe were reported to hold £57m in free cash, and have the lowest broker valuation (HSBC) value them at 17p per share...The loss per hour was one reporters estimation, and I am not sure if this included money held back by card acquirers (so it would have been a cash outflow, rather than a loss as such). Many companies have pension deficits, and judging by the figures given in the documentation supporting the 1p offer, the deficit didn't seem massive to me.

Stob normally bounces back, it doesn't look like its going to happen today...but who knows (except those on the inside)

Flybe were reported to be losing £7,000 per hour or around £160,000 a day or around £5mln per month and this is why the credit card issuers where with holding money paid for flight tickets.

Seems to me many do not realise that the liquidity issue seems to have been just that a short term liquidity crises caused by card acquirers...would be good to know what the options were/could have been, and why the acquirers behaved the way they did. Also was this situation so bad that the BOD would allow the CONsortium to take so much of Flybe value...Hoskings seem to have a view...leave it to the big boys.

Flybe could not have waited any longer, they already had to sale and lease back a hanger at Exeter airport and one of their aircraft just to raise quick cash to keep them a float over the Christmas and New Year period. Then almost immediately needed a further £10mln cash inject from Connect Airways to keep Flybe a float for just one further month until the take over goes through. It seems to me that many posters on this thread do not realise just how short of cash Flybe are/were and how very close to collapse they are/were.

Jak, thats why support Hoskins and the appointment of Kohn...also lets see if other interested parties who were excluded from the process `early on' have anything to say. We just don't know enough, and most/if not all of us do not trust the incumbent Board.

Had other Airlines been interested in Flybe would they not have shown their hand even at this very late stage. There is no other interested party. If there were the Board and/or the interested party would have made an announcement.

mhin2, "I imagine there were many options/possibilities..." In a court you would have to demonstrate actual alternative options rather than imaginary ones. JakNife

Jak, I dont think they were allowed to emerge...look at what the BOD published about the bidding process...It would have been good to explore them...I imagine there were many options/possibilities...I would like Hoskings to be able to appoint Kohn, then we might see what happened and what possibilities were negated/overlooked, and (most importantly) why. Stob share price just not being able to hold its own...I wonder why?

Which other airline would have be able to take over Flybe? IAG - Would only have wanted the LHR slots, which they would have had to give away for free to another airline. Easyjet - With Flybe would have had over 60% of the UK domestic market. Stobart - Could not have gone it alone, with out othet parties being involved with them.

mhin2, "answer to whats up easy...had there not been a conspiracy to circumvent all possible options what would have happened." What do think the other "options" were please? JakNife

answer to whats up easy...had there not been a conspiracy to circumvent all possible options what would have happened. At the moment we have no access/ability to scrutinize the financial state of Flybe when the strategic review took place, only the statements of accounts by the Bod, which led to HSBC valuing company at 17p. A bit of a non-sequitur to the Hoskings argument/scepticism

For those who see value here regardless of the fact the shares are trading at 4 x the offer from consortium ask your self this question. What would have happened to Flybe had the consortium not injected an urgent £10 million with a follow up £10m.

I prefer the scots version But, Mousie, thou art no thy-lane, In proving foresight may be vain; The best-laid schemes o' mice an' men Gang aft agley, An' lea'e us nought but grief an' pain, For promis'd joy! Still thou art blest, compar'd wi' me The present only toucheth thee: But, Och! I backward cast my e'e. On prospects drear! An' forward, tho' I canna see, I guess an' fear![5]

But Mouse, you are not alone, In proving foresight may be vain: The best laid schemes of mice and men Go often askew, And leave us nothing but grief and pain, For promised joy! Still you are blessed, compared with me! The present only touches you: But oh! I backward cast my eye, On prospects dreary! And forward, though I cannot see, I guess and fear

It seems to me what is happening at the moment with Flybe is the Institutional Traders are pulling in the Private Retail Investors saying that there is s liklihood the Connect Airways take over will be thrown out and a higher bid will be made. Then these very same Instituational Traders will get these same Private Retail Investors to sell out at a 1/4 of the price they paid for their shares back to the Instituational traders.

Ok... Jac....I am not convinced, and remember what Hoskings said...other parties remained interested until the (rushed/lightening quick) asset sale.

It doesn't seem that unreasonable to me. In an rushed situation, lawyers can often turn round docs quickly.

Some very valuable assets were sold the day after Tinkler announced his holding. I find it quite unbelievable that an asset sale could be prepared and executed so quickly unless some plans were not already in place....but I am convinced there is a conspiracy...I still maintain that. That's why hoskings demand for an investigation is completely understandable, but it must be scary for the conspirators (who, incidentally-if exposed, could be liable for massive damages)

Why is it "highly questionable"? They've explained quite clearly why they had to do it.
