looks as though the t/o is edging towards the required majority, generally a rather lukewarm reception: on the other hand, no alternative on offer, suspect the share price would fall back into the 500s if it doesn't go through? Market quite unforgiving presently.
Had cvsg/ergo down as alternatives until the CMA started its investigations and other developments.

The close price at the end of today will be interesting as well as the Monday open. A chance there will be signals to interpret in both. The clever ones took money off the table when the offer landed.

Used to own Instem from sub £3 and exited too early about £7.50. Not so sure this time. Hope you all make a decent return and it goes from strength to strength under any new owner.

Agreed tt but too many unknowns and the only things I can know is where my stop would sit and the potential risk vs reward.

Lion will also pay a price if they allow this to be sold at what they think is too cheap. Future Lion investors will be more sceptical of Lions assessment of a company future value potential.

Liontrust need performance in their funds. They really don't need a big position like this to fall back sharply. Take a look at Liontrust's share price!

The Cannacord Genuity sales and Lion not being happy and the confirmation of no higher offer from the bidder - does suggest its close to the wire and if voted down there will be a fall back. It needs another bidder to join the party.

I think the price softness does suggest there is increasing risk it will be voted down with no plan B except to continue as it was prior to the bid.

If it does get voted down where do people think the price can fall to?
Updside is defined. Timescales to clarify.
Downside definition? What probability, falls to what price. Could happy quickly and near-term.

Very tempting but not guaranteed upside and a pretty big downside potential and can't guess the probability of up vs down.

When is this deal set to close Trev? Seems like a good opportunity to accumulate if the price is 765 or below. Not dug into the terms yet, just noticed the RNS today. Cheers :-)

Carefully judged bid price, but at/below where they were trading 18-24 months ago (and where I took some profit). Shows how the UK small-cap malaise is undervaluing stocks. It usually takes corporate M&A to demonstrate this value on offer. The penny will drop eventually and we should start to see some money flows into small-cap.
I did often wonder how much longer the CEO would want to keep running this show.
As regards competing offers, it's interesting to note that there are very few business synergies with the acquiror, so a decent sized competitor may well be interested in getting involved, as potentially more value on offer in such a tie-up.

Market price suggesting a competing bid may emerge?

Not a shareholder but if I were I would be pretty disappointed that they have not run a formal sale process. This is a quality business that appears to be being sold by management too cheaply and without any external competition.

I am pretty confident there would be a number of interested parties and it would have resulted in a meaningfully higher takeout price. I am going to put these board members on my do not operate in the best interest of shareholders list.

Instem plc issued a solid trading update for H1 2023 indicating that revenue is expected to be around £29.7m, an increase of approximately 10.2%. The Group's balance sheet remains strong, closing cash at 30 June 2023 was £8.4m. With an increasing number of customer touch points and cross selling opportunities management is confident that Instem's performance will be broadly in line with the Board's expectations for the full year. Consensus expectations are for revenues of £65.5m and statutory net profit of £7.2m, growth of 11% and 53% respectively. Valuation is average with forward PE ratio of 18.8x and PS ratio at 2.4x both mid third for the Software & IT Services sector. The share price is in a longer run consolidation phase and lacks momentum for the time being. INS is a solid growth niche Software name at a decent price, but it is a share to monitor for the time being...
