leadersoffice: Moving above the offer price
vinceelliott: Message 644 indicates ValueAct got onboard at £5 a share. Only RNS I can find is Feb18, when price was around 320p. Cannot find the RNS taking holding up from 5.4% to 9.3%; anyone remember when?
leading: QP - The answers to your two questions are that I don't know! Sorry that's not very helpful. I agree with you about the sector and am sorry to see it go too. I bought in March 2018 at £3.49 so I thought that was a good buy in price then. I liked the business model, expansion opportunities and also the move into themed accommodation. This latter point did suggest increased capital requirements and the activist investor has a point there. I am happy to be taken out at this price, but will sit on my hands and see if another bid turns up. The price is sitting at a discount to the offer, so the market is not particularly expecting a counter bid, but if one turns up that's when it gets really interesting. There is a lot of money out there looking for a sensible home, so I don't rule out a counter offer, even though it has been recommended. DYOR etc.
quepassa: yes, you are right. but do you think the current offer does not represent good value? It is after all recommended which means it has the support of the Board and the Board think it's good value, hence their recommendation. I did once get involved in a recommended offer (Quintain) where we ultimately forced a higher price because we felt the original bid didn't represent good value for shareholders, despite the Board's recommendation. Subsequently the acquirer was forced to cough up 10% more because he couldn't otherwise get the 75% necessary to go unconditional at the original offer price. So, yes, it can happen. Just to clarify please. 1.Do you think this is good value for shareholders 2. Do you realistically think someone else would throw in a competing bid.(Disney?????) Personally, I think it's a great sector and still with phenomenal growth potential and am sorry in some ways to get taken out. Disney Inc has been a star performer for me and I had similar long-term high hopes for Merlin. Maybe I'll hold off from selling just to see if anything happens -or from accepting the offer- as this is a big story which will attract media coverage and maybe it will flush out another suitor as it is such a growth sector. Looking forward to your reply. ALL IMO. DYOR. QP
leadersoffice: Also, I wouldn't rule out a counter bid.I've just found the price .., it was £3.15 in 2013
leadersoffice: Just trying to work out what was the offer price when they returned to the market was it in 2013? Was it £3.85?
lukmanpatel: Another troll by the username lsehotdealz haha, share price is stagnant and there’s talks of fundraise at 10p on that board lol desperation has lead to going round posting on different board to prevent share price from dropping, usually ud stay quiet and average down and accumulate if you see huge potential lmaoo he’s spamming all the boards
bookbroker: Not so positive today, this management needs to start improving the share price, otherwise we will see a takeover here, has nice assets and good brand identity!
farmergeorge: Has the Merl share price lost it's way, or are we just waiting for some significant news - one way or 'tother?
philanderer: Merlin Entertainment hotels could lift share price to 800p - Morgan Stanley (ShareCast News) - The plan by Merlin Entertainments to add hotels to their theme parks is underappreciated by the market, said Morgan Stanley on Wednesday as it set a bullish share price target for the years ahead. Adding hotels to theme parks increases the visitor catchment area, revenue visibility, ancillary revenues, trading periods and guest satisfaction, Morgan Stanley gushed, with themed hotels such as Lego rooms at its Legoland parks providing an "immersive" family experiences and premium revenues. Its analysis suggests around £450 revenue per room per night, which is three to four times higher than the market average, with management's ambitious target to increase the current 3,600 rooms by 2,000 by 2020. With an average of 400 at its large parks being well short of the 1,000 at some competitors, Morgan Stanley sees 7,000 rooms by 2022, with hotels growing to 30% of adjusted operating profits, adding 5% to the annual group number. Analysts calculated that earnings per share, which came in at 19.56p and are forecast at 22p for 2017, with continuing strong London hotel and visitor statistics expected to help Midway performance this year, could reach 50p by 2022. A target price of 580p was set, with the bull case putting a 1,000p share price based on a forward multiple of around 20 times. HTTP://
