The time this is taking makes a mockery of the new code. Once again it seems that shareholders are way down the list when it comes to being informed about what is happening in the companies they have a stake. In this instance all the new ruling has done is give the advantage to management. For all anyone knows management could be lining up a nice little (or very big) deal for themselves while shareholders end up with peanuts. If the speculation is correct and they only want to pay 130p then why is management wasting their time even talking to them. The rule is put up or shut up so why don't they make them do that or start fully concentrating again on running the business and making profits. This was trading at 115p not long before the bid and bid premiums have been around 40 percent for the last ten years. So offer at least 160p or go away.

Hmmm...from that Scotsman article looks like the offer may benefit directors more than shareholders....still even at 130 it would be a small gain and at least the money's been protected from the current market fall-out.

yeah.. it didnt make sense to wait until the last hour to announce an offer or termination of talks so this was the most likely outcome. This is a good development for the offer, they are doing due diligence and normally they have to agree on something to be able to do that. I think we will have an offer on the table.. who knows when.

my guess is say 140p... if they are keen they will want a bid where management won't say no.... but where they also get a good price... I think less than 140p isn't really acceptable and shareholders might say no even if it is recommended by management..

Deadline 5:00pm today unless extended "The Panel has consented to an extension of the deadline, by which Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan must either announce a firm intention to make an offer for the Company or announce that it does not intend to make an offer for the Company, to 5.00 p.m. on 14 May 2012. This extended deadline may only be further extended with the consent of the Panel in accordance with Rule 2.6(c) of the Code."

the deadline is Monday 5pm, but i guess they will extend it again. it hasnt taken too long, everything is working according to plan... so far. And the timescale depends on what happens, do they make a hostile general cash offer or an offer via a scheme of arrangement and when do they announce it. there are a number of possible outcomes from here. the most likely scenario being a cash offer via a scheme of arrangement, then say a month after the offer is RNSed it must be posted to shareholders, after say another month there will be EGM & court hearing and then after circa another two weeks the court finally sanctions the scheme and once that happens the share is delisted.

anyone any idea on the timescale for this offer to go through or not??? It was extended but for how long???? 15th May I think is the deadline.... so Tuesday next week should get either an extension... offer going through or abandoned....

yep, but with KWL was before the new rule. Now the offeror has 28 days to either announce an offer or walk away. Or to ask for an extension to the deadline. I think they will extend the deadline here on Monday RNSed either pre/after market or intraday.

thorne3, it has been quite a while with no word but that can happen. I still hold some KWL shares who were in talks not that long ago which seemed to go on for ages. In the end the bid did not emerge and we weren't even told who the interested party had been.

The price has moved up towards the close and the longer discussions go on for the more likely in my opinion that a deal will be struck.Had there been no prospect of a deal an RNS to that effect would have been issued some time ago.

I agree penpoint.There is absolutely no point in the company staying independent because it will be paying down debt for ever and a day.Goal is basically a property company with a high return which means that if it is to expand it needs a high level of capital investment.Because the returns are high and capable of being expanded both in theUK and theUSa i believe that the Canadians will see fit to offer a sufficiently high price that the directors wll find worthy of recommending

penpont, well if the T/O does not happen I don't think you will be losing money a year from now.

I just managed to buy 8000 shares at 123p. At that price this looks - I really hesitate to use this expression - a no-brainer. On historic and forecast earnings alone they are worth IMO more than this. With a T/O in the offing on top, it was just too hard to resist. Here's hoping I''m right.....

If the following scenario occurs then it won't be a surprise. Ontario put in a bid of about 130p which is rejected and they walk away. Shortly afterwards a transatlantic PE firm miraculously appears to rescue the situation with a bid of about 140p and everyone is filled with relief and the offer is accepted.

You only have to look at the DTK thread that has appeared again recently to see what happens when these offers are accepted. These were up to 118p a couple of weeks ago so there is hardly a premium at all at this level.
