Yep no issues at all with the directors cashing in a few chips - they more than deserve it. Just pointed out that the price action was not your usual volatility - posters were saying it was normal price action which it clearly was not.

I'm struggling to see how this is in any way unusual? Nor the consternation about the difference between an announcement after hours or before the open, which are functionally identical. Also forget the fiction about building a book. The word obviously went around, leading to the price drop. The level has thus already been selected and agreed with the participating parties. The price action at the close is also encouraging. nimbo1 - exactly, and it's difficult to think of it working any other way. Nicely underpins the price IMO.

Anyone else who has been here for a few years will also recall the previous secondary placing when David Branden sold shares. I certainly didn't have a problem then and don't now.Hence I'm still here having enjoyed a spectacular ride and have no intention of getting off!

Exactly. It clearly is priced in hence the 30% drop in a week!!!

The main thing here is as usual us pi's know last, and the price already reflected what was happening in advance of the rest of us knowing. Happens time and again.

Ann probably feels the same way I do, like having a beer! Until the am.

Ann Cotton is a PCA not a director, presumably Charles Cotton's wife. She clearly was not aware of the placing which says a lot about Charles' integrity in my view. Certainly nothing to be concerned about.

By the way Panic as a rule I've learnt the hard way this year if results come out and the share price is multiples of where it was 12 months ago it is highly likely directors will sell some. it normally comes after or during the institutional presentations and at least temporarily always takes the froth out of the price. Im trying to learn from these instances - and should have listened to myself here as id have an average price of 9.50 instead of 10.50! (to give an example of one where it looks like it could potentially happen is KWS - I have no basis for this other than my own thoughts and want to be a holder there).

Given the book closes at 6pm today, i think we can assume it's fully subscribed. Expect an announcement to that effect tomorrow i would think. The thing with these placings is that it's not like us pi's get to take part so i've learnt to pretty much ignore them tbh. If you don't trust management don't invest. ATB

i hope you are worrying about nothing there - the non exec who bought would not have been told about the placing and the close period was at an end because results had been released. Also the price they paid is significantly above the placing price so it hardly looks suspicious!

How do you account for a director buying at 1350 when they knew about the placing - shareprophets will be all over this

My purchase could have been timed better but in the end it means over £30m of new money buying shares in the company. It is a vote of confidence, that cannot be denied.

Yes, that was a good call, nimbo. I agree we may revisit 920 in the very short term, but my experience is the same as yours in that the market will have been very much expecting this and, once the news has been digested, it will set the scene for the price to move upwards again, with some new ii's on board. I'm a lth so i guess my time frames are different to some; for me it's all just noise at the moment until we see some concrete data for JWE which will be the level of pre-orders in i would guess May 2018? I'm happy to wait 8 months. I think it does explain the recent price volatility. The thing to remember is that the ii's have stumped up 76% more than tencent did less than two months ago. ATB

Probably not the fault of FDEV for the way its been handles as its the job of the brokers to run these processes? But hey WDIK, nothing surprises me on the markets these days.

Just hope they placed them all. Not a very professional way to handle it to be honest.

Should put a nice floor under the price, particularly if it is significantly over subscribed. May dip 3% or so tomorrow morning. Better that than a constant drift down. Not too bad!

dunno why it wasn't announced at 7am - I've often seen them mid morning.

Your a great investor but why didn't the company announce this at 7am - lost all confidence now - the 1350 purchase was a scam
