Looking like a done deal. For someone who only bought in a couple of months ago at 305 I'm happy. I will probably just wait until the end of this week before selling......just in case!

Surely not dithering? I think it's clear, if Aberdeen says yes, share price won't drop much below 403p (time value and all that). If no, there's a bit of upside.

Since its looking more and more like a done deal, I decided to sell out this morning and have my money back working for me as opposed to sitting dead for a couple of months waiting for the offer to pay out. Couldn't get the touch price but at least got slightly over the offer price.

Schroders happy with the offer, waiting for Aberdeen, if they say yes, that's it.

The big PE houses have reinvented themselves as alternative asset managers (basically copying Blackstone and Brookfield) Getting an infra asset management and development platform is hugely valuable I'd expect the acquisition (or at least the management rather than the actual assets) to be put into KKRs GP/management platform I'd hoped that one of the larger Canadian/Nordic pension funds would have stepped in

some comment in the Guardian today after the Bitcoin item. ..... it looks a poor moment to sell. The US is about to spend huge sums on infrastructure, pulling in private money in its wake. KKR, with its easy access to huge sums of cheap capital, will probably do very nicely. Unless Laing’s shareholders surprise everybody by saying no, private equity, sadly, looks set to win again. hTTps://www.theguardian.com/business/nils-pratley-on-finance/2021/may/19/the-30-one-day-fall-in-bitcoins-value-looks-like-a-turning-point

Is it a counter bid or are the big shareholders saying the offer needs improving?

Interesting price action today. I am not selling for a while just in case we see a new player enter the game!

Share price now above offer price! Does suggest market expecting another bid.

Brought JLG back in August 2020 as seemed a low risk share at a cheap price and with nice growth prospects. Through my work, I have a bit of experience of infrastructure projects. I am far from complaining about a 34% return if the sales goes through at 403p, even if I did buy with the idea of just tucking it away and hanging onto for many years. Personally if everything goes through then looking at investing those funds in Rathbones, which looks like another low risk but with a decent bit of upside, perhaps 20/30%.

Williamc - alternatives? DORE has just issued an update which is quite positive, yet the share price is a significant discount.

topvest - a good point about the share price; it's signalling hope at least of a counter-bid. If the price starts sagging or major holders show support for KKR, I'd be a seller rather than wait.

Yes, a pretty good deal. 403p. Can sell for nearly this at the moment, which indicates the possibility of a competitive bidding war. Sitting tight for 6 months or so for it to go unconditional is quite a long wait. I think John Laing lost its way a little a few years back, with the lack of direction leading to this bid. It does have a great team and position, hampered only by the pension scheme deficit. I never really understood why they sold their investment management business, but I suppose losing one of their mandates (on a bid) led to this. Overall, its a good business but a new owner could probably do better. Hence, the bid!

Up to the major shareholders then, Aberdeen Standard and Schroders will have big say..

Decent price, I'm happy enough. I am going to hold for a week or so on the slim chance that another bidder shows their hand.

It was trading at 400p at the end of 2019 so very much taking advantage of recent weakness to get on the cheap. Think 430-440 would be a fairer offer, but don't see much prospect of counter bid at this stage.

Hopefully, we will get a counter bidder .Its a prize asset being sold on the cheap.

It looks as though the scheme won't be effective until at least July. Meanwhile other big holders will indicate their intentions. So far, the BoD plus Soros don't count for much.
