ludoo: Independent Market Report - imminent bids for Fitness and Holmes By Michael Jivkov As shares across the board roared higher yesterday dealers reported particularly heavy buying of Fitness First, up 11.5p at 159p, amid talk that Mike Balfour, the chief executive of the health clubs operator, is about to table a formal bid for the group. Cinven, the private equity house, is believed to be backing the deal and, according to yesterday's gossip, it could value the group at up £200m, or 175p a share. Fitness First put itself up for sale at the end of last year after a massive profits warning that sent its share price plummeting. At the end of January the group admitted that it was in negotiations aimed at a management buyout and posted full-year pre-tax profits of £24m, up from £20m in the previous year. At the time Fitness First promised to deliver continued profit growth and said it would proceed with its plans to expand the business by opening more clubs. Analysts expect the group to add an extra 36 to its existing portfolio to take the total to 366. Elsewhere in the sector, Holmes Place ticked 0.75p higher to end at 26.5p as traders bet that ongoing bid talks may soon lead to a formal offer for the company. "It's not that long ago that the rival fitness club operator Cannons bid 200p for the group," noted one trader buying into the stock yesterday.
forethought: The profit warning was clarified. I for one believe the explanation to be satsifactory and the subsequent drop in share price over done and exaggerated due to overall market sentiment at the time. A Fitness First club as just opened near me, which I've joined, and I can tell you it is a VERY popular place. Much better than some of the other health clubs I've been to over the years.
reetus: Share price starting to limber up ready for the post Xmas work out!
reetus: Well it appears the share price has fallen below the price that Legal & General purchased their 3% stake at on 17/10/02.
airrage: RAGINGCAT, Agreed, actions of the FATCATS disgusting. Should be fired not awarded options. Even better when a firm, re-prices Options when the share price falls. FTF are accomplishing the same effect here. Sorry can't help not a shareholder.
reetus: Don't think they'll be back down to 90p again for a while. Just because the company announced profits may fall by 20%, doesn't really explain the share price got marked down by over 60% last week. Many people including myself are disappointed with the Trading Statement, so it is an understandable over-reaction with there being so many corporate earning scares recently, but atleast FTF is still making a healthy profit. So once the dust settles, I imagine these will recover (as they have been doing since) and with the company concentrating on filling its exisitng gyms rather than expanding so much, then the next update should hopefully be more positive.
reetus: Share price still recovering well, with Market Maker buys still appearing.
reetus: I was surprised the price fell so much on Friday, considering the share price had unexpectedly plummeted on Thursday before the Trading Statement was announced. I don't think you'll see any FSA investigation, as Insider Dealing is very hard to prove.
airrage: October 05, 2002 Purchase of Fitness First shares fails to halt slide By Dominic Walsh DIRECTORS and management of Fitness First yesterday attempted to stem the collapse in the share price after Thursday's last-minute profit warning by buying almost one million shares worth £875,000. The move came as LA Fitness, its closest rival in the value-for-money fitness sector, sought to distance itself from Fitness First's woes by issuing a strong trading update showing like-for-like sales growth of 9 per cent. Five directors of Fitness First bought a total of 561,500 shares at 91p, while management bought a further 400,000 shares. The biggest buyer was Mike Balfour, the chief executive, who took his total holding in the company to 5.44 per cent by adding 300,000 shares. Analysts suggested that Mr Balfour's credibility would now come under close scrutiny, particularly from institutional investors who were persuaded to back a £75 million rights issue in February at 412p a share. "Investors are absolutely seething and I wouldn't be surprised if Balfour pays by having to fall on his sword," one said. There is more to be read in this article......,,5-436237,00.html I am a bit worried(not personally) about any FSA Investigation into the share price fall before the profit warning.
reetus: It is certain that the likes of Fidelity Investments, State Street and the Capital Group of Companies will be analysing the Trading Statement and having talks with FTF if necessary. As these companies have recently acquired stock in FTF, I think they'll shortly be dipping into their fund coffers to average down their position. Does this announcement of an anticpated 20% fall (being prudent) in pre-tax profits warrant am immediate 35% fall in an already depressed share price? Looks overdone to me, but hey I could be wrong!
