If your company is so great and life is brilliant how come you are trying to make money on Meggitt? Shouldn't your primary focus be your business and employees?

1madasafish Rather than just see the world through your own small anecdote of a life I suggest you start looking beyond your little comfy bubble. ;) By-the-way: I have a Masters in engineering, I've worked for two top UK R&D labs and was a founder of an engineering company that listed on the LSE. Capitalism is a very wide area. I'm not into crony capitalism and short-term capitalism if you understand the differences and nuances.

I own and run a manufacturing business so I know all about world competition. You are pinning your argument on headlines. Living wage is a very good wage in my opinion. No one is low paid now unless someone is fiddling the system. I have people on my shopfloor earning more than me without the stress and worry of making enough to make ends meet. People nowadays are idle and they don't know how to save. People want cheap and throwaway. I remember getting bits and bobs for my bottom drawer for my first house which I saved damn hard to afford. Now people want it now and worry about it later. Stick it on the credit card then moan that they cant afford the repayments. No matter how much money is thrown at the NHS it will always be a disaster because its a political hot potato. Its a typical nationalised disaster. Too many people earning far too much doing very little (mainly consultants etc). Massively over staffed. No one dare say it as we might upset someone. We got out of Europe to have a say in our direction. Germany won the war through the back door because they persuaded Europe to create the European union to compete against larger countries like USA and avoid conflicts like war. All its done is to create arguments & bring their currency inline with the rest of the EU with the Euro because their currency was too strong. We are different to the French, who are different to the Italians who are different to the Greeks and so on. Which bird brain thought we should all be governed by the same rules and laws ?? The Germans because they rule to roost.

Medieval Blacksmith ... do you honestly think what people think matters ? Everyone on here including you are just trying to make a living. A capitalist with a conscience? I admire your beliefs but alas it will change nothing. Make a difference and become a MP. Despite us losing our coal mining industry, car industry to others, shipping industry I guarantee everyone's standard of living has gone up over the last 40 yrs. I'm 48 so I remember what people's houses were like, how many people went abroad, the standard of peoples cars if they had one. Why don't you nationalise everything and we can go back to the good old days of poor productivity, rubbish quality and strikes. Next you'll be blaming Margret Thatcher. I'll tell you who's to blame ... the people who wanted everything cheaper. I spoke to a customer last week who have been around the world sourcing cheaper goods. Why ? Because the end customer which is often 'us the consumer' wants it cheap. Now the world is behold to the chinese. Blame it on the Tories but Blair had plenty of time to change things and didn't and now no one wants the Labour of old because people are doing very nicely thank you

Rejoice in another UK company being bought out. Short termism wins again! There will be nothing left in the UK to be proud of.

Is that likely emptyend ? A 71% premium on fridays close seems quite an attractive premium ?

Various conditions will need to be met....I don't doubt they will be met, but until that happens a discount will persist (unless there is a counterbid).

Even though this bid has been recommended, I'm not convinced that is the end of the story. I wouldn't be too surprised to see a counterbid. Businesses like this are tough to find and, in relative terms, the bid terms aren't much of a premium over pre-pandemic share prices, especially in the context of the general market recovery.

Note: "The Acquisition is conditional on a number of antitrust and regulatory approvals and Parker will make further announcements in respect of such approvals as appropriate." Perhaps that's one reason trading sub 750p at the moment?

Discount due to risk bid may be squashed. OTOH offer only fraction above prepandemic price and could be regarded as low-ball. Either way good news for LTBH holders because highlights previous under value by market.

Wow - thought something would come as systemicly undervalued by the market, but pleased with the price - well done the BOD which is more than I can say for some others accepting US offers.
