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.

I think powerleague were bought in the middle of the downturn. Most of the centres are smaller, generated half the op margin than goals and are generally in not as good locations. On that basis the price for the two businesses cannot be compared and I think the directors will stress that point

not sure I agree with below comment Shares in Goals Soccer Centres (GOAL) soared by 17.5p to 125p after it confirmed that it is in discussions with Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan for a potential takeover bid. Based on the EV/EBITA multiple of 7.5 times that was paid for its peer Powerleague in 2009, broker N+1 Brewin said this would equate to an offer price of 130p. The broker noted the attractiveness of the new low cost business model and believes investors would prefer to accept the prospective offer than wait for the business to recover.

This company is producing quality EBITDA of circa £12m and should therefore attract a bid of some £120m i.e. about 250p per share.The directors are a canny Scottish bunch and will i should imagine be holding out for a very high price.

I can't see it being less than 10X this year's earnings which are set to be nearly 14p...... but taking into account growth and around 150p looks like the bottom of the range.... will be interesting to see how it pans out..

Anything below 170 should not be considered. This business clearly has long term value if it takes a couple of years to reduce debt then it would have a much higher valuation. With the new build concept it can reduce debt and continue growing. It makes sense for the canadian pension fund to buy it as they can expand it much faster in the Uk and abroad and get high rate rate of return on a long term basis in a easy to run predictable business which is perfect for them. It does not get safer than football when predicting what people will be doing in 50 years time
