Gilinksi can effectively accept or block a takeover having majority control. Given that he could earn 6% risk free keeping the £102m in the bank I don't think he would settle for anything less than 3 to 4 times current share price especially as he is under no pressure to do so. Shawbrook offer if I remember Sky News reporting was somewhere in the region of 150p to 200p.

Why should Gilinski buy shares and take the bank private he would be facing all the risk and there is a conflict of interest if he bidded and approved the bid for a takeover as minority shareholder protection kicks in..Better to press ahead to grow the bank, keep it listed, and sell on to a much larger rival bank in 2 to 3 years time..Easier to value if still listed prompting more buyer interest than trying to make a private sale in future.

90% in favour with current share price already reflecting dilution..I expect the share price to rally back above 100p!

Shorters place bets, but at the end of the day, it is what it is just a bet and plenty 'spectacularly' fail by not seeing the bigger picture in what the key players strategies are!

The Bank of England won't want the adverse bad publicity that through in its own decisions failed a major bank and directly caused a bank run as a result of the Bank of Englands own actions triggering another tax payer funded bail out..Politically with a General Election looming next year it would look terrible!

Gilinksi's as ever ambitious with the Metro Bank management team keen to grow the bank both organically but more importantly through bank acquistions. Note that he already owns 15% so was a major share holder to start with.

Institutional investors realising the alternative is far worse and will see that long term this is the best option. 673m at 30p represents a market cap of just £200m leaving plenty of head room for the share price to eventually recover for a bank with over £20 billion of assets under management!

Retail investors seeing that although it looks painfull a stronger more robust Metro Bank will emerge and embark on the acquistions trail is a far better long term bet with the bank remaining listed and the share price likely to recover over the coming months..

Metro Bank is operationally profitable, growing, and expanding that will be the key message the Board will communicate and having Gilinski support will see the turn around strategy blossoming in the New Year.

Agree Bones699 that's also my view Gilinksi if he wanted to have taken Metro Bank private he would have done sooner. His strategy is to grow Metro Bank by acquistion while keeping the bank listed on the main exchange allowing the share price to recover..

Like you I expect the first acquistion next year although Q1 appears too optimistic more like mid year with the share price slowly recovering to around 80p by June..

Gilinksi's involvement will come to be seen in time as a positive move in the long run giving the banks mgt team motivation to grow the bank both organically but also by acquistion. A stronger larger bank sector player in a highly competive market ripe for consolidation.

Equally I see no value in the Bank of Engkand putting Metro Bank into resolution. A self defeating proposal given the banks proclaimed policy to encourage competition, improve customer services while lowering bank costs through providing healthy competition to shake up the big 4 bank stalwarts who dominate the bank sector and have no interest in providing better customer services and lowering costs for both customers and business..

Likewise with a General Election next year it wouldn't be a good sign for a Conservative government on the one hand spurring competition and voters needs for better bank services while on the other supporting the big four bank monopoly and staus quo..

A very interesting take on likely things to come from the LSE BB.

RE: Buy

Today 06:48

"It's a private placement at 30p with Gilinksi and ii's no retail involvement which makes sense otherwise the share price would tank."

"Now whether Gilinksi holding 52% decides to offload his 360m shares onto retail to recover his £102m if the share price recovers remains to be seen."

"Keeping Metro Bank listed rather than going private makes perfect senses gives him more flexibility to profit if and when the share price rises and why take all the risk by taking the bank private as well as being very costly and time consuming re-listing in future and harder to find a buyer than a listed firm where the share price and hence value is easier to gauge."

"He could of course do the dirty on retail investors wait 12 months and buy the remaining shares at the 12 mth highest price say 40p..."

"That's always a risk but personally I believe he wants to grow Metro Bank to consolidate the UK mid sized retail bank sector through acquistions then sell Metro Bank to a bigger rival in future. He's very ambitious and has done the exact same thing in the past, so he has form so to speak."

"At 674m shares 100p share price market cap £674m that's less than what Shawbrook offered to buy the Co-operative Bank at the c.£1 billion mark...where the Co-operative Bank is a similar size as Metro Bank..revenues £400m but far more profitable c£75m+ and its has an extensive branch network."

"The funding of acquisitions is likely to come from the £3 billion mortgage book sale...His daughter is on Metro's Board so no doubt the Gilinksi's realise that organic growth in the bank sector is unrealistic but the market is ripe for consolidation that's his business strategy."

"As a consequence keeping Metro Bank as a listed business makes perfect sense..His average share price holding is c. 40p despite holding 52% of share capital where 500m was issued at 30p."

"Will the ii's sell up holding 160m extra shares at 30p...I'm thinking they will hold and ride it out thinking the same as me a return of the share price north of 100p in the coming months."

As far as mtro is concerned, the situation continues to evolve. The press has universally taken against the coup pulled off by the Colombian. However, he is a shrewd operator and works at a political level. As far as mtro is concerned, as dealy pointed out, it will be the making of the bank.

JGB has the money, political savvy, and operational understanding to make mtro very successful. He believes in the model. He knows how to run banks, even in hostile environments like Latin America. He's been involved with mtro for years.

This is a very interesting time. Next news will be the sale of the mortgage loan book. That will put upward pressure on the sp, as the real posters here have pointed out. Next will be the regulatory charm offensive - JGB will make this work for mtro. Short and long-term, things look potentially very good.

Share price up 5% no doubt will slowly return to where it left off circa 100p now that Metro Banks reserves have been restored and the debt refinanced..Seems that this was an orchestrated and premeditated attack by Casious and Gilesky to gain control of the bank knowing that Metro Bank is operationally profitabible but undervalued..Got it at a steal by the looks of things...Share price will now rise substantially as pi's who didn't sell out reap benefits.

BH stop posting BS - the share price was driven too low because of informed selling BUT the Company now has its refinancing package and bankrupt is no longer the correct description....also the subscription price should not be a drag as the subscribers are unlikely to be sellers ... the shorts may close and new investors may choose to buy at current knockdown prices ... so over 6-12 months MTRO should have upside potential as it reports more profitable quarters

Share price was artificially pushed down by two key shorters as prior to PRC release there was no news on capital issues, buffers were reported as sound based on last trading update.

Market panicked and correction was an overreaction so share priced dived to historic lows as market expected worse scenario a bank failure like SVB, which didn't happen.

Funding deal puts Metro Bank on an even keel, secures the bank, resolves the historical losses on the balance sheet issue frees up capital for lending and still allows private investor's to have a stake, although diluted, but shares held in a more stable, growing, and profitable bank..We may even see full year results better than expected and next year PRC application approved for lower internal capital buffers as legacy balance sheet issues resolved..

All in a very sensible deal, debt holders get a hair cut but higher interest, profits are growing quickly, so earnings can easily soak up extra few % on debt, Gilinsky and private investors will see share price rebound in time and Directors have put their money where their mouth is..Those in the know commited financially to support Metro Bank as they see the business model working and the turnaround strategy bearing fruit when they could have folded and walked away.

This is a massive bail out. That completely justifies the share price fall.

Despite the huge majority on here who think it was shorting that dropped the share price. That was rubbish. The share price fell because the company were in trouble and needed a HUGE capital bail out.

It's a big dent in confidence in the banking sector and a step towards another credit crunch. The shares are saved for now, but the whole sector is back under the microscope. And rightly so.
