eipgam - Yes thanks for the full text of the FT article. Even a die hard GKN supporter must agree that the convolutions around the board doesn't look good, one named CEO suddenly leaving might have been just about manageable but since then we've had all the other stuff. Yertiz - Even if you had not mentioned your RN past we could probably have guessed from this:- "sudden changes in direction by not having a rudder brings" haha.

Cisk- any connections with Malta? Hop leaf and Blue Label were the other tipples (and Marzovin wine!!) from my youth serving in the RN. Happy days!

It is already a world-class engineering company. It wouldn't have the share of market in Auto, for example, if it wasn't. Let us not hide behind curtains here. This is a case of whether you are a short-termist and/or a Melrose shareholder versus long-termists and/or GKN shareholder. One way or another it will decide itself and we move on.

Thanks eipgam - I found the FT article to be remarkably succinct - stating what most of us know that the GKN board has been cobbled together from a retired jam maker and non-accountant, plucked from the obscurity of non-exec roles. Regardless of what us small shareholders think, the institutions will decide the fate of the Melrose bid; but from where I'm standing, the track record of the Melrose team make the GKN board look like amateurs. Let's hope this moves along swiftly and GKN, under Melrose stewardship, can become the world-class engineering company it has the potential to become.

You haven't missed much. It is a poor write-up in my opinion and is only a few paragraphs long.

eipgam - Thanks for that link, unfortunately, (being a confirmed scrooge) I cannot read it without subscribing haha. Only a very small PI so don't think I will ever subscribe. Used to buy the weekend edition many years ago until they ruined it with costly colour supplements of food, travel, housing, and the usual boring lifestyle rubbish haha.

Article in the FT today is critical of GKNs board. I can't copy it or the link but search 'Melrose GKN' and see top stories, FT, 11 hours ago.

Prejudiced & vitriolic... just like the other factual questions about MRO you cannot answer when they don’t suit your political stance. Political prejudice usually leads to losing money in business. As I’m sure you’re aware as a former business person.

Ooh... Brexit has crept in to the board.... As an immigrant I wonder which way the bigoted can guess I voted? By the way, I love steak and kidney pud ;-)

No, Bukko I don't give it a lot of significance either, it's a small gap. GKN has kept only a little ahead of the MRO offer for a good while now, after initially being some considerable way ahead. I take it to mean that a new offer, from MRO or other, is considered by the market to be possible but quite unlikely. I expect brexitplus will be in Paris now, enjoying the fine dining. I'm not so lucky, just off to Pontypridd, and a slice of Bara Brith, for the weekend.

As I write , "the formula" result is 419p for GKN but the market price is 428p. Does anyone read any significance in that? I don't but who knows!
