The take up was 41.7%!!!! ie 1,087,064 /((103,178,794+1,087,064)*2.5%). You are making the error of thinking that the £ 11 million cap comes into play butit was obvious that not everyone would apply. Had they done so the £ 12.35 million (being 2.5% of the share capital at the offer price )would have been capped - it wasn't so those that did apply got 12.35/11 or 12% more than their fair (ie 100% tendered)share. If the offer had been for 5% of the shares then the 41.7% would have got £ 10.3 million. I think that they should have tendered more !!!!!And the great thing is it puts the share price up because there are fewer shares. Makes you wonder why they didn't do 5% capped at £11 million Bet we see more of these.

Thought it was 2.5% of holding, not 25%. Maybe the broker has lost the point!! LOL

If the average mid price has been about 455p, it will give a distribution price of 477.75p. (+22.75p). I would hope that the share price will be above this level(not saying it will immediately)in the short term if shares are taken out of circulation. I would be entitled to £xxx, no dealing costs, and of course, it's not to be sniffed at, but as a long term holder, I see that the short term loss of the money will be a good decision longer term in respect of a higher share price and higher dividends. We can only wait and see.

I am tempted to reguess at 43% not because I dont think this is a good way to distribute(95% of the shareholders have a holding below 50,000 shares and 70% are private holders - that means by my calcs all would be at ZERO tax because of the CGT exemption) BUT people don't understand it is a distribution. Hope some of the bleeters get the Fergie treatment if they try to moan at the AGM. I shall of course use the divi and the tender to buy some more because of the spare cash. As Elvis said - love me tender or was it "Return to tender"

Family, directors etc. say 45%. Outside shareholders - less than half take up, say another 20% = 65% in total. Good game.

Investors Chronicle today JHD plans to buy back 2.5% of its shares....Effectively this is a bonus dividend.... BUY I shall partake of the tender and revise my guess to 55%, and there is no chance of a special in my mind.

I think you are in the right area, bda3490, so I will go for 32.5%. I think a lot of shareholders, apart from the family, will give this offer a miss. It would be great if the remainder was given as a special. The announcement of the results of the tender is 2 days before the AGM , when specials have usually been announced in the past, so if a 35% takeup is correct, then a 7p special might be given??? We shall have to wait and see.

I think the share price is affected by the companies brokers annoucing they are closing the broking business. Not good timing for JHD as normally the broker would be active. We should all have a bet on the percentage of shares that take up the tender my guess 35%. That would mean about £ 4 million tendered - so plenty left for a special

As the Directors have significant holdings it may be the most tax efficient way for them to raise cash from their holdings, rather than a benefit for PIs in general. A bit of a conflict of interests if that is the reason behind it, but hey, if they keep delivering the goods year in, year out I shalln't begrudge them that.

I agree, Graham. Means a larger slice of the cake (in respect of dividends and any future specials, ;-) ) at a later date.

And by skipping the tender offer a small shareholder will become a slightly larger shareholder (in percentage terms).

I am turning it down as:- I am not selling shares that can be about the 445p mark when I could have sold yesterday at 470p. Rather sell into the market at a price I like, not anticipating the averaged over 5 days price. 2.5% of my holding would not (for me) be worth selling. I am a long term holder anyway. I am sure smaller shareholders will not participate, and they would have preferred a special. (Sorry 50 percenters). Keeping my shares, I would hope the share price will increase, adding value to my holding, as should the dividends, with approximately 2.4m shares being taken out of circulation. EPS will also increase. IMHO.

£ 11 million spread across 100 million shares. is over 10p a share and its tax efficient. I have no idea why anyone would turn it down. Everyone likes an extra dividend. What hasn't helped has the 400,000 sahres cross at the bottom of the spread yesterday which undermined the initial uplift on the announcement. Hey I am sick of the extra tax on my dividends. I think its well worth a punt.

So , you can tender a maximum of 2.5% of your holding , to get a price of 105% of the average price for the prev 5 days .Doesn't sound very tempting to me , even if I had a huge holding!

From Tender circular : An individual Shareholder who tenders Shares to Altium pursuant to the Tender Offer should be treated, for the purposes of United Kingdom taxation of chargeable gains ("CGT"), as disposing of their shares. Provided that the Shares are held as a capital asset by the Shareholder, the sale will constitute a disposal for the purposes of CGT and, depending on the individual Shareholder's particular circumstances (including the availability of any exemptions, reliefs and allowable losses), a chargeable gain or an allowable loss could therefore arise for a Shareholder resident or ordinarily resident in the United Kingdom. The rate of capital gains tax for gains falling within the basic rate band will be subject to tax, currently at 18 per cent. For gains in excess of the basic rate band, the rate of tax is currently 28 per cent.

Looks straight foward to me. A distribution as CGT not income tax so use up tax free allowance and if you are a higher rate tax payer whoopee 28% instead of 50%

"Since the announcement of its preliminary results, the Company has continued to trade robustly, and in line with the Board's expectations." Sounds like they have too much cash swishing about. I guess the tender offer has to do with CGT instead of paying 50% tax on income?
