higgins1: At first I did not think that the Return of Value would be a net positive action, now the dust has settled I have tried to anyalise the situation! 03/04/19 3180 shares @ 20.67 [closing price day before last regular div] = £65730.60 29/04/19 3180 shares @ 19.205 [closing price day before ROV] = £61071.90 30/04/19 2638 shares @ 19.378 [closing price day of ROV] = £51119.16 14/05/19 ROV payment 10562.78 15/05/19 2638 shares @ 18.284 = £48233.19 Add back in ROV 10562.78 + 48233.19 = 58795.97 Worse off than at either 03/04 or 29/04 To be seen what tax advantages there are from ROV share wash compared to straight sell? [I do not live in UK] If I understand correctly there should now be less shares in circulation which should equate to higher share price in the future, against loss of income from disposal of the SUSE business. ??? Only time will tell!

damonbrooks45: Hi dynz, I just looked at present share price on the LSE. It's definitely trading today down 4.02% and currently at 1,765.60 GBX −74.00 (4.02%) Also my friend traded the stock today, Just wondering why my consolidated position is at a mad number £23.16 from the 29th? It also lets me trade this position if I want to? Sorry for all this but would love an answer as corporate havent got back to me.

dynz: The share price stated for XP status shares is not the market price, it is the broker price. If you check the London Stock Exchange for MCRO at present you will see that the share price is £0.00 and MCRO has zero volume since 30/4/19. Once the consolidation concludes the market price will apply. The present broker day trader trades are of no value.

daveydave: How does the return of value benefit shareholders besides not being a capital return rather than income? It's basically forcing a 'sale' of shares at the current market value is it not? You get some money upfront now, but unless you buy back in again you miss out on any share price increase in the future. I suppose you don't miss out on future dividend return value since any dividend is split between fewer shares.

philms: MRThomas Company has announced that Return of Value will be between $4.33 and $4.39 per Ordinary Share and that they will announce US$/£ exchange rate for Return of Value by 7.00 a.m. on 26 April 2019. Let's assume the exchange rate is $1.3046:£1 (current rate) and Return of Value is the mid-point of the range at $4.36 per Ordinary Share. That will be £3.3420 per Ordinary Share ($4.36/$1.3046). For your 10 Ordinary Shares you get 10 * £3.3420 = £33.42 from the Return of Value. The Consolidation Factor is 0.8296 so you would get 10 * 0.8296 = 8.296 New Ordinary Shares, however, no fractional entitlements will be issued so you get 8 New Ordinary Shares. All of the fractional entitlements are aggregated together and sold in the market with the net sale proceeds being distributed to shareholders with fractional entitlements. A Return of Value of $4.36 per share would mean that there were 412,844,037 Ordinary Shares in issue at the B Share Record Date ($1,800m/$4.36) and assuming a share price of £19.4050 on that day then market cap would be £8,011,238,538. The Return of Value would be £1,379,724,772 (412,844,037 * £3.3420) so market cap should decrease by this amount to £6,631,513,766 and the shares in issue will also decrease to 342,495,413 New Ordinary Shares (412,844,037 * 0.8296) due to the Share Consolidation. Based on these numbers the share price for each New Ordinary Share should be £19.3623 (£6,631,513,766/342,495,413). Assuming the fractional entitlements are sold at this share price of £19.3623 then you'd get a cheque for £5.73 (£19.3623*0.296) for your fractional entitlement.

soundsplausible: Sogosit - so in short micro focus provides shareholders a dividend of ~£4.35 per share, then at the same time the share consolidation takes place. Shareholders get some cash in their pockets whilst seeing no change in the share price?

orange1: Monty-Nob is feeling very pleased with himself. He has always said that this company was absolutely top class. He has made an absolute fortune from this company, first buying when they were at their absolute low point and selling out the day they reached their absolute high point. He bought back in when they reached their recent low and has topped up ever since. Oh yes, when the share price collapsed he shorted them all the way down making another fortune. A complete nob legend.

rochdae: Still too much cash going to shareholders here. On the back of a billion going to shareholders come next year. But the key is that the business seems to be back on track. Get margins to mid 40's and the story is a 30 pound plus share price. Anyway, I continue to buy any dips... seems to be working quite well.
