Well I am gobsmacked, in the space of a few days the BoD have caved in and thrown the owners of the company (ie the shareholders)to the wolves. I realise as a PI that I have no influence but I do hope the funds and IT's will kick up a fuss, they damm well should do. As mentioned around £7 a share would at least have been a reasonable premium on last years Echostar bid which as everyone above has pointed out was considered by the BoD to seriously undervalue ISAT. How can they have the cheek to say that six months ago yet accept almost the same price today. It all smells, I would have thought that the BoD would have more morals grrrrrrrrrrr.

Indeed... Good point. Maybe because the management team would have all been booted?

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 the BoD of ISAT are recommending 546p today? How does "very significantly undervalued" equate to 14p ( 2.6% of 532p)? Am I missing something here? Whats happened to the prospects of the business since July 2018?

Hi all, The Norges RNS this am (Holding taken to just over 3 %) mentions EchoStar as an interested party......but this may just be a legacy holding... ATB

"The consortium's indicative tilt, which assumes no final dividend payout from Inmarsat, could well spark renewed interest from two recent failed bidders, Echo Star of the US and Eutelsat of France, both of whom wanted to take control of the company last year." The Times 20 MarchThe price this morning is suggesting that a counterbid might emerge.

this is being sold for a 2007 price for Christ's sake - since when sales have quintupled. very poor deal for shareholders.

UK headquarters remains I see.Following completion of the transaction, we intend to maintain Inmarsat's UK headquarters, and to work with its highly skilled workforce to realise the company's full potential."-- Commenting on the Acquisition, Andrew Sukawaty, non-executive Chairman of Inmarsat said: "Inmarsat is a business which continues to grow as we invest in our infrastructure to support our customers' requirements. Increasingly, these requirements are for higher performance broadband connectivity. The expertise and skills of our employees, together with continued investment in our technology and infrastructure, are integral to delivering on our growth potential.

As the management has accepted the offer I don't think Echostar will see any point in a counter-offer. Show is over , pack up our bags and look elsewhere?

Apax's due diligence would have suggested that,all things considered,540p was a reasonable ballpark figure.What I reckon happened was,the management were enamoured with climbing into bed with Apax (an old girlfriend afterall)and haven't given a jot about whether it's perceived as a good deal or not.

They were £11.50.. It's a stitch up... the Private investor has been done over at this price.

I would hope that another bidder will appear. they are giving this company away. no doubt cozy arrangements have been made regarding senior management salaries. Otherwise I do not understand the change of mind

You're right.Sadly,the management are sitting tenants of sorts.The failure of management has reduced the share price to a level that attracts an opportunist bid at a level dismissed as ridiculous when Echostar made its approach.All you can hope is,that Echostar might counter.However,I imagine that the UK Government might quite like ISAT becoming private and slipping out of public view.This Deal has probably been given a nod and a wink.

It’s all about the existing management securing their futures.A number benefitted when the company was floated,now they can slink off and become a private company with the anonymity that provides.Its a trend, of course,listings have plummeted in recent years. Rest assured,Apax will have done enormous due diligence here.They’ve bagged a bargain and the company has been complicit in facilitating and recommending a bid that gives Apax and the rest of the gang a jolly good start.

Unbelievable. Six months ago the board turn down an offer for a similar amount suggesting that the amount did not anywhere near reflect the true value of the business. Now they accept this offer ? This is just bloody ridiculous.

As suspected,the management have opted for the cosy private equity deal.The private clients have been stuffed by acceptance of a lowball bid.I see it as unlikely that a third party will try to gatecrash an agreed offer.

Definitely in the column for "interests" as opposed to the separate one for shorts. Who knows what was in their mind, that the rise was a false one so they sold into it? Whatever the reason, they look to have misjudged.
