I’m happy to sit on the fence with IG to see how it plays out. I suspect and hope that there is something positive about the purchase that we don’t know about , as usual only time will tell. Good luck all.

So far this isn't tasty but more like a bout of campylobacter. For a company reporting record figures to drop like this is unreal and shows the market thinks the deal is way overvalued. Fortunately this is my smallest holding so I can still grin and bear it. If there is an uptick I'm probably going to sell as I have lost some confidence with the way things have gone as the deal seems overvalued by at least 25% in my opinion.

From SCVR "They're giving away over 25% of the company for an acquistion that will be low single digit accretive to earnings next year, that's outside of their immediate domain of expertise, in a market that's notoriously difficult to crack and at a time where we're seeing a lot of speculative froth. As a shareholder I can't see anything in this I like at all, all of the perceived benefits are in the future. And, as an added kicker, the existing tastytrade shareholders walk away with all of the cash in the business - about $112 million - and we have two new institutional shareholders holding 5.7% of the company on a mere 6 months lock-in, virtually guaranteeing a stock overhang for the foreseeable future. As ever, this shows the importance of sizing portfolio positions correctly. If I were holding IGG as part of a concentrated portfolio I'd be spitting feathers. As it stands I'll ride it out and see where we go, but it'll be a few years before we know whether this was a good deal or not. At the right price this would be a decent bit of diversification but this isn't the right price, or the right time. timarr"

Some years ago Provident Financial paid a hefty premium for Yes Car Credit, an online car subprime business. Like tasty, it was just a few years old and wasn't very profitable. Suffice to say that the purchase was a disaster and was eventually written down. I maybe wrong but I get a sense of deja vu.

Two director buys. Mike McTighe Purchase of 3,100 Ordinary Shares £8.279 June Felix Purchase of 6,300 Ordinary Shares £7.896 Petty cash for PR reasons. It'll achieve the opposite of what they intend. apad

While the presentation was a bit wooden, like they wanted to dampen down excitement prior to completion, I see the following as key.-- Longer-term opportunity for greater client penetration and cross-selling internationally through a broader proposition. 15% of tastytrade's funded accounts who seek to trade US exchange traded derivatives([23]) are located outside the US. As tastytrade has a very small footprint outside the US, these clients represent unsolicited, inbound demand which highlights the attractiveness of the international growth opportunity over time. tastytrade recently established brokerage operations in Australia, where IG is a leading provider of CFD and FX trading products, while IG has a broad international presence and client footprint across Asia and Europe to which tastytrade's proposition could be extended over time.There is demand from outside the US. The current management team at IG tend to downplay things. Remember, they downplayed the bump from COVID in 2020 (causing a share price slump) but the results did not bear that out. I think we might see a similar effect here.I'm a buyer given the tasty January sale discount. It is risky.

The two worries are firstly we are significantly overpaying, secondly i read the regulators could be about to clamp down on the type of trading Tastytrade does. Could be a very costly acquisition for a business adding negligible earnings.Or are we all missing something?

$1bn purchase which thus far has cost IGG shareholders $600m in lost value. Anyone who thinks this is a good deal who wasn’t holding the shares on the morning of the announcement must be rubbing their hands in glee. Everyman has his price! On a more technical note, why doesn’t this require shareholder approval? Limited new equity issuance?

1bn for Tastytrade! Their website looks like it was designed by a bunch of 1st year students and not at all professional. Is the company really worth this much money and has IGG carried out sufficient due diligence. I think the board needs to provide investors with a lot more insight into the deal and the rationale behind it to justify the high offer price.

Lastchance : Would disagree about certain posters being clueless, when a share drops 15% in the space of a Day the market makers are unhappy this isn't Pi selling, are you saying the share price fall is down to a short position taken out on the 13 ?
