"On 12 March 2017, Galliford Try announced that it had approached the Board of Bovis and proposed an all share merger between Galliford Try and Bovis. Galliford Try now confirms that it is no longer considering a combination with Bovis."

ousebuilder Galliford Try has given up its pursuit of under-pressure rival Bovis Homes just a week after fellow suitor Redrow walked away from the takeover tussle.
Galliford had remained in talks with Bovis after its approach was first rejected last month, but said it had abandoned plans for a tie-up after it was unable to "secure the support of the board of Bovis on terms that represent the best interests of Galliford Try shareholders".
The move leaves Bovis without any potential deals on the table, with Redrow last week saying it would not return with a higher offer after its initial proposal was also rebuffed.|

For the purposes of the Code, Galliford Try will be treated as the offeror company. Under Rule 2.6(a) of the Code, Galliford Try must, by 5.00 pm on 9 April 2017 either announce a firm intention to make an offer for Bovis under Rule 2.7 of the Code or announce that it does not intend to make an offer for Bovis, 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.|
|Divi to be paid this coming Thursday. I believe GFRD have until the 9th re Bovis.|
|Judging from today's price action, either the triggering of Article 50 portends a profit collapse at GFRD or we are about to announce a done deal for Bovis.|

"...It is understood that Galliford Try is still keen to effect a combination, with the two businesses being seen as highly complementary. Galliford would bring operational expertise that Bovis is lacking, as shown by the payouts to buyers to get deals over the line..."|

|( - Housebuilder Bovis Homes was forced to respond to recent press speculation regarding a potential offer for the company on Monday, saying it did receive written proposals from Redrow and Galliford Try outlining potential merger proposals.
The FTSE 250 firm said Redrow proposed a share and cash transaction for the company, while Galliford Try proposed an all-share transaction for the company, with both proposals preliminary and subject to due diligence.
"The board of Bovis reviewed the proposals and concluded that neither reflected the underlying value of the Bovis business and therefore both should be rejected," the board explained in a statement.
"The board also concluded that the Redrow proposal was not in the interests of Bovis shareholders as the cash element of the offer would require shareholders to crystallise value at the current Bovis valuation."
Bovis said the decision to reject the proposals was communicated to the two parties.
"Redrow subsequently indicated that it was not willing to improve the terms of its proposal and discussions were terminated.
"Discussions with Galliford Try are ongoing."
In the meantime, the board said it was making "good progress" with plans to recover and improve group profitability and enhance return on capital employed, with the search for a new chief executive also progressing well.
"The board of Bovis remains committed to maximising returns to shareholders and will continue to consider all strategic alternatives."|
|Galliford Try has proposed to Bovis that the equity in the combined group would be split 52.25% to Galliford Try shareholders and 47.75% to Bovis shareholders. On the basis of the share price of Galliford Try at close of business on 10 March 2017 this would value the entire issued equity of Bovis at GBP1,191m or 886p per share, representing a 7.0% premium to the closing share price of Bovis on the same date.
Under Galliford Try's proposal, Galliford Try shareholders would receive the Galliford Try interim dividend announced on 21 February 2017 to be paid on 6 April 2017, and Bovis shareholders would receive the Bovis recommended final dividend announced on 20 February 2017 and payable on 19 May 2017|
|Interesting that the share price has been climbing ahead of the approach for Bovis; also that Redrow are no longer in the frame.
That would be some acquisition for GFRD, almost doubling the current market cap.
TBH, I'm not sure whether I'm happy with the bid or not! Any views from others?|
|Highest for well over a year today!
Still good value and big dividend.|
