If Bidco do reduce the amount they are proposing to pay for each share, i'd show them the door. They've got a good solid company cheaply compared to a year ago

That's my point - it isn't in black and white - they may (or not) reduce the Acquisition Price by the amount of the dividend - hence the slight premium now - only my view. I sold this week - so there is bound to be a counter bid now!

The next ex-div date is around 20 June, payable beginning of August. In any case "Bidco reserves the right to reduce the Acquisition Price by an amount up to the amount of such dividend" and I don't see the reason why they wouldn't.

I believe there is some level of ambiguity over the next dividend in the offer RNS :- "If any dividend or other distribution is authorised, declared, made or paid in respect of KCOM Shares on or after the date of this Announcement, Bidco reserves the right to reduce the Acquisition Price by an amount up to the amount of such dividend or other distribution for each KCOM Share, in which case eligible KCOM Shareholders will be entitled to receive and retain such dividend or other distribution." SO I assume the potential for a dividend is factored in?

Any idea why the share price is still higher than the offer? Is there still room for a competing offer?

IMHO this deal will go through in saying that it is a very strange fit. Kcom directors must feel that they cannot go any further with the Company so take the cash and run. What do a Insurance Superannuation Scheme want a Telecommunication company with shrinking profit and dividends???

Micro cap Toople (TOOP) are also aiming for 5% of the UK SME market within 3 to 5 years. Currently just a market cap of £3m, if Toople are taken over for £504m like KCom they would be a 168 bagger from here. That figure increases another 40% if you use Daisy as the comparator. Buy Toople.

Interesting to see the difference between stock market "valuation" of a telco and what someone is prepared to pay to own the same company. haha, hoping the same philosophy will apply to TALK one day

I think it falls short. I would have preferred north of £1.10. Its a steal at 97p. Be interesting to see if anything else emerges. DYOR

Great news and suggest small teleocoms company Toople (TOOP) could be next. KCOM today agreed to be taken over for a cash offer of £504m (a 33.8 % premium to yesterday's closing price). hTTps://uk.advfn.com/stock-market/london/kcom-KCOM/share-news/Universities-Superannuation-Scheme-Recommended-Cas/79755406 https://uk.advfn.com/stock-market/london/kcom-KCOM/share-news/KCOM-Agrees-To-GBP504-Million-Takeover-By-Universi/79755712 KCOM has 5% of the UK SME market and as TOOP are also targeting at least 5%, it thus gives a baseline takeout price for TOOP if they can get anywhere near a similar market share and TOOP's CEO has often cited KCOM in presentations for comparison purposes. TOOP a potential 195x bagger from here!! N.B. TOOP market cap at 0.27p = £2.58m £504m (KCOM takeover price) / £2.58m (TOOP market cap @ 0.27p) = 195x bagger TOOP target price = 195 x 0.27p = at least 52.6p

Virgin like a bargain. They were looking at buying Flybe for pennies. KCOM are too good and don't need to accept a low offer IMO. Another interesting Telecoms play is the minnow Toople. They are now fully funded through to cash generation. GLA If you are interested: 2/12/2018 - 5 Reasons to add Toople to your Watchlist - hTTps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mrn7W3csH0U
