their numbers appear extremely conservative, and there is still possible upside in rail. dont forget these guys were wrong as of yesterday. why would you believe them now?

In the (unlikely?) event of a takeover of the business being proposed, the pension trustees would give their assessment of the amount needed to address the underfunding of the pension liabilities. The £745 relates to the part now being sold, the £700/1000/1300 relates to the remainder of the business.

if it means that the pension is massively in surplus, surely that is not an ongoing cost to the buyer

Rumple, Well unless Siemens are dead sure no one else is going to pop out the woodwork you would imagine they would have kept a bit back for a top up, if necessary. Not sure I'd set that at £800m though ............... but you never know As ever £4.40 ttfn

Hobby and Donkeystone its been a long time coming but now the party is on. I bought my first tranche of Invensys shares about 11 years ago for 13p a share. Not quite sure why I bought them but hey-ho, hey-ho it's off to the bank we go. Over the years I accumulated more and more till now I hold just under 100,000 shares. Pundits and financial advisors said I was mad – and they were right. On many occasions I questioned my sanity in holding Invensys but being stubborn (never usually a good trait for an investor or gambler) I stuck with it. A few years ago they rocketed to over 400p on takeover rumours so maybe Donkeystone's prediction on 440p will finally materialise. Here's hoping. Now where is the Invensys tea lady.

Great news for PIs. Many congratulations. I held a very large number of these for some time but sold out many years ago. I stumped up a lot of money for the rights issue in 2006? Can't quite remember now. So Siemens have finally coughed up. If some of the old guard still pop in here - Yuka, metex, spights, Steve111, Bysel, Harry Punter to name the few I can remember - hope you oare all well and making money somewhere!

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/newsbysector/industry/9710087/Invensys-in-shock-1.7bn-rail-sale-to-Germans.html It surprised analysts after selling the rail division for just £50m less than market value of the entire industrial software company. As part of the deal, Invensys will hand £625m back to shareholders, as well as a further £625m to its own pension fund. But the sale of a business regarded by some in the City as Invensys's "crown jewels" raises the prospect of a counter-offer for the unit or even a potential break-up bid for the entire company. It could also raise concerns over the sale of another major British technology business to a foreign owner. Canada's Bombardier is seen as a another potential bidder for the Invensys rail business, and interest could also come from Chinese and Japanese rail companies such as China Southern Rail and Hitachi Rail. General Electric and ABB have also been seen in the past as buyers of the whole company and the sale of the rail unit raises the prospect of a counter-bid for the entire business. Meanwhile, Emerson Electric, which held unsuccessful takeover talks earlier this year with Invensys, could look to buy the remaining business if the sale of the rail division is successful. "Invensys is definitely in play now," said one senior London-based investment banker with knowledge of the company. "I'd expect to see someone make an offer for the rail business before the shareholder vote on the deal, and I certainly wouldn't be surprised if they got some bids for the remaining parts of the business."

Emersons hands tied until 21 December, I think? Rail is about a third of group turnover, I think? Will someone(s) rock up and go for the lot ..... who knows? Time to return to the old sign off:- As ever £4.40 ttfn you never know; been here since May '05.

Worth tuning into the conference call and supporting slides. http://www.invensys.com and follow the Invensys Rail Disposal link. Looks a good deal to me, solves the pension funding, good price for the lower margin Rail business, cash in the bank to pursue higher margin business and acquisitions, distribution to shareholders. The market will vote on it tomorrow having had time to consider the the presentation. AO

Rumpel LOL! Having exhausted the T/O route the yanks are doing what they do best and that is to dismantle another British engineering business, starting by flogging off the best bit. The fact they are returning a large portion of the cash to shareholders and most of the rest to pay off the pension deficit probably indicates they have few plans for rest of the business other that to flog it contrary to what is in the statement( I am sure they would have preferred to return it all to s/holders but that would have been too obvious!).
