I can't see how Powerleauge can buy this.... surely it would have too much market share (owner of powerleage - Patron - is considering an offer)... depends if you define the market narrowly or as the whole leisure spending market

I'd have thought the opposite, and that Ontario would now feel forcedd to show their hand asap before Powerleague get going with the due diligence. Following from D tel: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/newsbysector/retailandconsumer/9368949/Powerleague-enters-race-for-Goals-Soccer-Centres.html

will this lead to another extension of the bid timetable for Ontario ?

If so it's my second in the space of about a month. KWL also had a counter bid and then an increased bid from the first bidder. Maybe people are finally starting to realise these companies have been going cheap.

What next? Are we now effectively in a bidding war? Should we expect some kind of response from the Canadian fund? Interesting.....

quite the opposite by the way just because you read in the papers that the offer will be 130p doesnt mean it cant be 150p. Papers are useful when they discover a bid, after that i dont pay attention to them.

Hi my view is that this should be on the balance sheet, not hidden away in the notes, yes its possible to do things like this, and perfectly legal but to me it raises questions of integrity. For an aquirer, hard to say - they pay £65-80m get 9m a year profit / c22p a share cashflow. This is the reason why they would buy it. Or they say the co is very geared, no real asset backing (if you back out the liabilities) they may worry about the downturn on the profit / cashflow of the company. Having said that I think they probably wont, I think they will still buy it as once capex has fallen away there will be enough cash thrown off to cover capital cost easy.

I dont think you can compare retail leases with leases for goal soccer. The leases are much lower since they had to build the centre. From the 2010 presentation average rent is 41k per year and average lease length is 62 years. The bottom line is 5 a side football a stable product which is consistently profitable as the centre matures. Retail is always changing, the leases are much higher and if you got something wrong then you get punished straight away. This is a simple business with high barriers to entry which is highly predicatable (except the snow)

too much debt and operating leases too hardly a safe pension fund investment

unless we get a 08 style Lehman event which will further depress the M&A market.. i guess we will have an outcome here before the greek election after that who cares.

rjmahan.... long-term lease.... so kind of a long-term rental liability... I have to admit I thought they bought their properties..... so can increase risk as for sites that aren't profitable they are still liable..... i.e. Clinton's cards style..... I suppose the alternative would have been to have more debt and buy sites outright....which would have also been risky..... So on balance not sure what to think about it..... you can say that on the one hand it means that a sever downturn exposes goal to fixed lease charges and falling income..... i.e. such as hit Clinton Cards.... I think the long lease nature is a quid pro quo for Goal investing in the sites.... they couldn't invest £2m per site if the lease was for say 5 years... What is your view on it... you clearly believe it makes the company less attractive for an acquirer??
