Hades, do you have any idea when the government will make a decision regarding CH4?

On what has been posted above, perhaps the share price is being supressed intentionally.

ITV are massively under valued vs the competitive sector.

Yes they are in the best shape ever so I can’t explain why their share price is under so much pressure except the general market wide pressures.

A 10% increase on 2019 advertising would be most welcome Hades, thanks for sharing your findings.

Yes all brilliant news. So nothing explains the drift down of the share price except a general malaise over the FTSE100, UK and Markets in general. Keep strong as ITVs recent share price decline is not justified. They are absolutely in the best shape ever!

Incidentally I now have some latest industry numbers for ITV advertising revenue - remember these numbers have to be accurate as they are used in to price television airtime between agencies and the broadcasters (here it’s ITVs). Sept (21vs20) +18% Oct (21vs20) +19% November looks similar Remember 2020 Sept-Dec were already strong. I estimate 2021 ITV advertising revenues could be +22% vs 2020 and +10% vs 2019!!!!!! A record year.

I wouldn’t be so quick to dismiss LGs (John Malone’s) interest in acquiring ITV? LG (John Malone) have some form in this area. They always play the long game. It took them over 8yrs to finally take complete control of Telewest, then NTL/Telewest and then Virgin Media. I think their position in ITV was originally taken to firstly deter any competitors from trying to buy ITV but also to allow them to control the timing of any takeover/industry consolidation. They certainly never overpay and have spent the past 6yrs very cleverly averaging down the cost their initial position (initially bought BSkyBs 6.4% position at 185p, additional 3.5% provided by GS using a Leverage/hedge mechanism at c.225p). At the end of 2020 they announced that they now owned a full 9.9% as ordinary shares and had managed to significantly reduce the entry price. Currently LG via their Virgin Media subsidiary are lobbying the UK Government to allow further UK Broadcaster consolidation i.e merger/takeover of CH4 by ITV. LG (via John Malone)also has a controlling interest in Discovery Communications which is currently merging with WB in the US. Discovery Communications also have other small TV channels in the UK and have a close relationship with both the BBC and Sky - They have launched the Discovery Plus streaming service on Sky Q and VM. Timing is everything but LG have certainly also been side tracked in the UK by Brexit and their VM merger with o2 - originally tried to tie up with Vodafone but ended up selling their EU interests to Vodafone and so left them concentrating on the UK. But who knows but it’s certainly been a long game. Lastly apologies for wittering on but I do have more than a passing understanding of the industry.

I think that’s correct from memory. The point being they won’t do that unless they want to bid , which right now is pretty unlikely as they’ve held this stake for such a long time.

Hades, thanks for clearing that up.

I think the point is that if they went to 10% (the min trigger level) they would be forced to declare that they were not intending to make a full offer for the company within 6 months or indeed make a full offer at that point (min offer pricing parameters are in the take over code). LG are already at 9.9% just below the trigger point. At 9.9% they are already ITVs largest shareholder. Hence it’s now all or nothing. That’s my understanding but happy to be corrected.

"If Liberty Global were to go above 10% they would have to bid immediately" I wasn't aware that if someone owns more than 10% of ITV that they would have to make a takeover bid?

Stag6 Sorry but the Guinness case was an isolated incident that took place 40 yrs ago. The world of business has progressed enormously since the 1980s. The policing over the area of compliance in particular has risen to an almost intolerably high level especially post the financial crisis of 2007/08. I am sorry but I believe your recent posts are entirely misguided.

mathew1...your faith in the financial establishment is to be admired. The only problem is there are as many crooks in white collars and pin striped suits in the City as there are in Her Majesty's Prisons.
