I suspect a similar process is happening to a smaller degree with BT at the moment - until the six months is up!But BT is considerably more liquid and it won't be anywhere as severe.LG and GS got lucky with ITV due to the pandemic!

I could be wrong but I never found a quoted number.They just talked about not committing any more funds when they turned from a leverage position to a full ordinary share position - at that point anyway!He was very careful with his words on the conference call.But I assume GS shorted it down from 225p to 55p!Hence I was relieved when they said it was now a usual 9.9% ordinary share position in Nov 2020 - Although I think he said GS had until the end of 2020 to complete the switch.

I'm sure last year Liberty claimed that part of their ITV shareholding average price was reduced to I think from memory 90p.

From memory they did a balance sheet write off (due to share price fall) at least once during the 6 year period so they were being rather economical with the truth.

Liberty Global... CEO Mike Fries stated, “Given ITV's operating and stock price performance, we were able to increase our stake to 9.9% with no incremental investment by hedging our existing equity position. Https://www.libertyglobal.com/pdf/press-release/7-31-Liberty-Global-ITV-FINAL.pdf

Hi Bob, yes they loaned out their shareholding to Goldman Sachs to work their magic on their behalf. They were able to purchase 138.7M shares at zero cost from the proceeds, that in turn lowered their overall average price. The average price maybe even lower after they loaned out their 9.90% to GS since.

You are right. They just did not commit additional funds to secure the larger 9.9% position. They gave their initial holding to Goldman Sachs and they created a leveraged position at 9.9% total. Sadly there is no transparency beyond that point. Clearly GS could have made money shorting the positions etc but at end of 2020 Liberty Global said they now had owned 9.9% as ordinary shares. We can only guess at the overall average price including GS fees, servicing etc. Nige has generated the lowest possible average price. It has to be somewhere between that number, the original sky position @ 185p and the average opening price when they opened the levered position at c.225p? Less whatever GS made on the way down plus fees! Its a guess.

Nige..you suggest that LG obtained 138.7 million shares for zero. You have lost me on this one, what do you mean by free shares?. Have they discovered a strategy to get a chunk of ITV for nothing. Am I missing a trick here. They could average down or sell calls and puts, but you say this one is a free lunch.

I've just been looking over the Liberty Global ITV shareholding to see what their average price is..... 2014 Liberty Global acquired 259.8M shares 6.40% from BskyB for £481M price paid 185.14p per share. 2015 Liberty Global acquired 138.7M shares 3.50% after hedging their ITV shareholding (free shares) Total shareholding 398.5M 9.90% costing £481M Average price paid.... 120.70p.

Two stand out trades reported today so far in a low volume day. 09:36am........price 108.13.........Trade amount 99,495.54. Off-Book 09:37am........price 108.39.........Trade amount 250,975.00. Off-Book Share price down 1.90p @107.60p......... Looks like there is no end in sight to the daily drop. The way that this is going we will test 100p before results in November.

Not sure I buy into the trade being a positive. But more than likely entirely meaningless.

Yes a delayed sell hence why I posted the time as well! The spread at the time was around 109.75 -110.00 and the NMS of ITV is just 15,000 shares. You may not want ITV shares but looks to me that someone was keen to take them hence the gnats whisker off the bid price for the block !

Not great as it’s a delay reported sell from this morning 0952. We certainly don’t want these!! But could just be a hedge fund’s broker booking earlier trades from last week? Who knows?
