|Fine company, excellent niche, shame to see it go.|
|Good bye and thanks for all the good times.
|Someone must have wanted the cash for their shares now.|
|Can't see were it makes any difference as court meeting approved the takeover.|
|ABC-Arbitrage buying a few
to see their other speculations see post 136 on the ADVFN "Tracking the Arbitrageurs" BB.
|HOPe the Grauniad is right since I am always dubious about agreed deals where the management get to keep their jobs and suspect that Tilbury and leith are both plum assets...|
|Directors are buying shares - always a good sign in my humble opinion.|
Here's hoping there's some truth in this article|
|LONDON (SHARECAST) - Ports operator Forth Ports has agreed a bid worth 1,630p a share from major shareholder, the Arcus European Infrastructure Fund.
Ho dear, i 'hope' Arcus continue with the building work along the Forth / Leith. Very little else being build in Edinburgh / Lothians / Fife for the trades.|
|sloppy reporting by the Scotsman; largely a rehash of the Sunday Times article of yesterday; how can 900000 shares be worth 1.5m...|
Tipped in press-Hold for further offer|
|Was worth hanging on. Whose buying it? The Management?|
|I'm pretty sure that this will be referred to the FSA re the activity from Thursday a.m.
People in the know means, "insider trading".|
|Well the much heralded "offer" has come in subject the due diligance. All the talk of £19 to £20.50 per share have greatly exagerated the indicative offer of £16.30 which rises to £16.50 with final dividend of 20p added in.
They are not getting my holdings at this sort of level.
|Very new to all this, but as long-term holder of Forth Ports am astonished at both near silence on Bulletin Board and in press after approx 13% rise in share price in last week or so.
Agree with what you say but as a long term shareholder it would be sods law, that if i sold to make a short term gain, a takeover bid would come in and i would lose out.
As you say sooner or later it will be taken out and i would rather wait until i get the big offer.
Also each year i am able to take up my isa allowance, so what i lose out in profit i gain some back in not paying tax.
It was the same time last year that the takeover attempt was made so who knows?|
|According to the Independent talk is of an offer as much as £20.50 per share, however talk is just that. Historically a spike in FPT share price on takeover rumour has proved a very profitable time to sell. Sooner or later it is likely to be taken out but is this the time????????????????????????|
|Thank you for your most informative post highland trader.|
|Mail Online states that another takeover bid is doing the rounds.
Talk of a knock out £830 million or £19 a share cash bid from private equity did the rounds.|
I had you filtered and decided to see what you had to say today. What a mistake.
Filter back on, you are a waste of space.|
|Obviously they are going to take my advice!|
|What A Dog! Management should resign enmass|
