Why would big holders agree to the company being sold for this poor sum (behind closed doors or otherwise) ?

I know this is not the way to do things but I just added up all my dividends and at $7.21 offer price and using 1.31 as the exchange rate I'm a few pence down. If the pound takes a dive in the next few months might just break even. As said, not correct, but have to try and console myself, think I'll go out and get thoroughly drunk now haha.

I hope I am wrong but I bet they have enough other big holders who have agreed behind closed doors.

They require shareholder approval.They've got 11.2% committed to the deal courtesy of Lansdowne.

I can't believe it doesn't need shareholder approval ? Are our muppet director employees empowered to sell our company for whatever (low) price they like ?

As the Dude said in the Big Lebowski when he slightly misquoted Lenin .. "You look for the person who will benefit" Management is recommending this deal this time around because they will benefit.

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. We are pleased that the Consortium recognises this and that we are able to present this offer to shareholders".

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.
