dm, how can their strategy be deemed "impressive" if ultimately they don't get ISAT? low-balling and not over-paying is all well and good and makes their management look prudent, savvy, and astute. However, if the ultimate objective is to acquire their target, (for all the reasons they have stated in their rns this morning), then they are going to look pretty silly come 5pm tonight if they have to walkaway. having increased the total value of their bid, ISAT's board have rebuffed in the clearest possible manner by repeating the statement made, (word for word), following the initial approach.. that's as close as you're going to get in the corporate world to a "2 finger salute"

pretty much the natural conclusion i arrived at too steeple unless i'm missing something?! strange game to play by Echostar if their objective was to get ISAT.. that would open the door for a white knight (assuming there is one) to get a deal done within the next 6 months with Echostar an onlooker

I’ve doubled my holding here. See this going hostile. Games being played

Echostar's proposals assume that they are the only interested party, and if this is the case their strategy is impressive. However if there is another bidder sitting on the sidelines then they may well have left it too late to get their formal bid together. I suspect there is more to come from this story...

It’s strange though as Echostar has loads of cash on its balance sheet. What’s someone like Ergen going to do with all that cash?

Echostar are going to make sure that we are grateful for every last penny by the time this goes through.

Over the last twenty years the number of companies listed on the London Stock Exchange has halved.I don't quite understand why Inmarsat was ever listed.Oh the government realised a few bob,some undeserving,fortunate employees pocketed a fortune and the company consistently overpaid on the dividend front but what benefits has the company,Inmarsat,actually derived from being listed?

Speculators leaving. Might be a good time to buy, I don’t see it going lower

would have also expected a counter statement from the ISAT board prior to market open

I suspect that the fact that no other bidders have come out of the woodwork yet might of tempered Echostar's enthusiasm.They're not awash with the readies and don't want to be seen to overpaying ie they don't want to do a Takeda/Shire with the Japanese company pretty relaxed about a slide in its share price as a result of an ambitious bid.As for the share price moves ahead of today's RNS,it's a disgrace.I thought it might just be speculative positions being unwound as time dragged on.But it wasn't,it was news leaking out from a source that would be a major beneficiary of this offer falling as flat as a pancake.

Yes,I think they're angling to stay in the hunt with an extension but then there's mention of Inmarsat's "recommendation"which simply won't be forthcoming at this price.I guess Echostar will be able to potentially discern the regulatory environment with this offer.I fear that Inmarsat could well remain independent for now.It's possible that this might kick off a bidding war but it seems unlikely.The bid is very opportunistic.Inmarsat only have themselves to blame given that they muddied the waters with a necessary radical alteration of dividend policy which showed a previously held naivety about future cash flow requirements.

"let's see if anyone else throws their hat in the ring." Indeed, although I don't see SoftBank immediately rushing down the street to Mizuho this morning based on that RNS.

Well we shouldn’t be surprised. As I said earlier they are leaky as hell.

"The market seems to have predicted the low ball offer with uncanny accuracy." Yes, with uncanny accuracy. One might also speculate that the apparent short-fuelled overselling of ISAT prior to a bid that makes much of the premium to this oversell is also uncannily fortunate.

So a low ball offer which allows them to stay in the game. Is that right? The problem is that Echostar might not have the balance sheet to pay above £6.

The market seems to have predicted the low ball offer with uncanny accuracy.It's too low by a good pound even as an opening shot.I can't see Inmarsat being bullied by institutions to sit down and discuss such a disappointing offer.

Echostar not exactly offering generous terms so far, now let's see if anyone else throws their hat in the ring.

https://investegate.co.uk/echostar-corporation/rns/statement-re-possible-offer/201807060700108287T/ It seems to me the big shareholders were indicating they'd take things seriously from 650 and EchoStar appear to have decided to channel Trump instead and give them the finger. I'm not entirely sure they've helped their credibility here. I like that the ISAT board rejected the offer on Independence Day.

The can go low and see what happens? They can always raise their offer later if softbank get involved?
