Bought in here a year ago. Up 45%, but more to go. Hope we don't get taken out cheaply! Amongst the others we share common interests in; I added XLM a couple of days ago and have held CCFS for a while now.

Why GoCompare’s modest deal could have a big impact The acquisition announced by price comparison site GoCompare (GOCO) this morning may be modest in size but could materially broaden its offering to consumers. The company gains 3.1% to 132.8p as it snaps up energy price comparison and switching service Energylinx for £10m in cash – funded out of internal resources – thereby adding to its existing footprint in insurance and financial services. Shares in GoCompare have performed pretty well since it was spun out of insurance business Esure (ESUR) in November 2016 at an initial 76p. In November 2017, the company batted off a takeover attempt by Zoopla’s parent company ZPG (ZPG) at a pretty low-ball price of 110p per share. ZPG itself has now succumbed to a £2.2bn from US private equity firm Silver Lake and there is speculation it may now bid for GoCompare and bolt it on to ZPG, although it is notable that the latter already has an energy price comparison arm in uSwitch. Putting this M&A speculation to one side, the insurance vertical in which GoCompare has been historically concentrated in is highly competitive so a diversification effort makes logical sense. Describing the deal as ‘small but strategically important’ stockbroker Peel Hunt adds: ‘The importance of the deal is to bring into GoCompare stable the commercial skills underpinning the energy switching market. ‘The deal will have limited impact on this year's forecasts, but is a material strategic step for GoCompare.’ sharesmagazine.co.uk

Good to see that this purchase of Energylinx is made out of their own resources - no equity raise. Poison pill or minding the store?Market seems to like it.Give us an aria Gio!

A comment on the bid for ZPG by Silver Lake in IC confirms that they have also identified additional potential takeover targets in the UK, so Goco should be firmly in the cross-hairs!

Yes, was thinking along similar lines. Peel Hunt have 140p tp, Berenberg 145p

Trying to get my head around the rise today. Obviously it relates to Silver Lake buying ZPG, and ZPG had previously made the offer to buy Goco at 110p. presumably the thinking is that with a bigger acquisitive gorilla around Silver Lake may be directed by the board of ZPG to also snap up Goco. I see RMV are up by a similar amount today, possibly for the same reason, but their may be anti-competition rules blocking a takeover of RMV. Anyway I am happy as a holder of Goco!

Vouchercodes is a big deal. This will need to be assessed carefully. Financial outlook for 2017 is positive though: "adjusted operating profit(5) for FY-2017 is expected to be at the upper end of current market expectations(6)." Surprised at the muted reaction here. Positive trading update and a sensibly priced deal that will boost earnings. Director share purchase too of just under £50k.

ZPG aren't allowed another bid for 6 (?) months. Obviously have now tried twice but seemingly just aren't paying enough. I'm not sure if they'll be taken seriously if they try and take a third bite of the cherry.

Hi all - big write up in this weeks Shares mag - re possible takeover - general conclusion that it may be that ZPG could be preparing another offer - time will tell

Ah, ZPG again, home of uSwitch, Zoopla etc. Pretty naff offer, and its shares haven't exactly shone this year. As you were, gentlemen.

Offer made at 110p as a combination of shares and cash. GOCO has rejected it for fairly obvious reasons.

Is that a real jump up in price? Knew I shouldn't have waited for 90p having bought pitifully few at 96.

Meerkat site Compare the Market in ‘price ramping’ investigation A major price-comparison website was accused of driving up the costs of home insurance on Tuesday, costing consumers millions of pounds. Comparethemarket.com, best-known for its meerkat advertising campaign, faces allegations that it does deals with insurers which prevent them from making cheaper offers on other websites. https://www.standard.co.uk/business/meerkat-site-compare-the-market-in-price-ramping-investigation-a3643971.html
