Hi hairballradical, I think what zcaprd7 has in mind is the zealous protection of 'national assets' eg when the French refused to allow a foreign co to buy that "essential industry", Danone.... ATB

Jingoism .... Extreme patriotism, especially in the form of aggressive or warlike foreign policy. Really?

That sort of jingoism might prevent a trade sale though...

Post-brexit Britain will likely look to national champions. This is one potential so a reasonable bet whichever way Brexit goes.

The managament are terrible and the dividend policy essentially destroyed the equity opyionality. Paying dividends while gearing up the BS was madness. The problem was the bid was too low to save face. So here we are back where we started with arguably deteriorating fundamentals on the horizon. This will become a business school case study of how not to do things in the future.

Can't say I disagree with either of those points dexdringle :-)

...I think what jbfnfn might be alluding to is that, if the board think the company is worth much more than £5.32 a share, then what the hell are they doing about making that a reality. As things stand, their comments re the true value of the business are looking like pure fantasy. Almost as though they made it up in order to be able to keep their cushy exec jobs....

Probably the same reason as May 2018 when it was only 350ish, the market will simply go by current forecasts to set its value, no bid factor included in the price as there isn't one.

Simple question. Back in July 2018 EchoStar were willing to cough up 532p for Inmarsat, admittedly not all in cash. The board said the proposal "very significantly undervalued Inmarsat and its standalone prospects". How come ISAT is only worth 371p today?

Spectrum was definitely the key for RBC being so bullish around the time of the Echostar bid.

Just hiring the people would be difficult, he's already running into difficulties finding talent.... I still think spectrum rights are the ultimate moat.

I think the micro-satellite industry is a lot quicker to build these days but the increase in capacity that's needed definitely would call for a new 'giga-factory' with all the associated design/build/realities.....oh, and the cash...

I'd guess he'd have to design and build a factory to mass produce the satellites (never been done), otherwise each one will take circa 3 years to build...

How much will it actually cost Musk (his investors) to achieve everything he's aiming for and given the example of Tesla, how long is it really going to take?

Why's that then? It would save him a lot of trouble and time just to buy inmarsat...

Yep... It makes ISAT's 1.7 BN mkt cap look a tad expensive......plus all the debt that it's got hanging around its neck......

ISAT certainly has been 'disrupted' and the management far too slow to respond. As Charlie Ergen has said, the sector needs to consolidate to compete. Thus, I think the future for ISAT will not be alone, but when an industry needs to consolidate it's rarely with any big money buy-out. The management were too slow to realise that last time and as others have already mooted, the next offer (if there is one) probably won't be as generous.

It’s a disgrace really. I have become friends with someone who works at the European Space Agency in Paris. Fact is they can’t compete with Musk. The largesse and in effect subsidy of the American capital market is by extension creating much lower costs to launch these birds and therefore an inevitable price deflation in ISAT’s space. On a separate note I flew business to Madrid on a new Iberia plane and was given a courtesy 4mb token. Wasn’t that impressed, it was super slow, maybe ok to read a watsapp message but even an email with no graphics took yonks to download. Sorry to be negative, I cut my losses some time ago. The management deserve to be shot though.
