When will this go back to 140, Paul, to resume going higher for a takeover?
22-11-2021
Well I thought a takeover was the only positive outcome for the stock....carlisle walked away probably because of the onerous lease payments on expensive branches in the city centre where the footfall has fallen due to people working from home.....Sentieo the data company has put losses over the next 2 years at over £300m before tax.....no quick recovery here I am afraid....

Metro will be inprofit next year, the bids know this and are not going to let it go below £5.00 a share. Plus's they want to keep their jobs so the terms might have involved a board change. A hostile takeover is possible but will need a 75 percent vote by shareholders so the offer will have to be very appealing. I made a fortune in 2018 when Melrose (MRO) took a hostile takeover of (GKN) in march 2018 for 8.1 billion, I voted for it. If the price is right here then I'd do the same.

So, lock down imminent along with MTRO (unrelated), confirmed for the first time officially, as a laughable takeover potential
FCA is nearly a fact 'metro guilty' now Think about it. Imagine if they came out and said ; 'Metro did nothing wrong . Sorry it has taken us years, hit SP 98% , caused 9.5% coupons and killed most investors " They going to do that to themselves? The time taken was to try find a way out, and they can't Also imagine if they made MTRO the first in history to have a sanctioned takeover during a fraud investigation ? Not do that to themselves either
Just for a laugh: At what price should Metro have agreed with Carlyle to get a takeover through? Thomas, Paul?
“Ere Carlyle.. we’re in a massive hole on Metro, help us outâ€￾ “OK, position yourself for a takeover RNS at 3pm next Wedsâ€￾ “Cheers bud, will doâ€￾
# Rising interest rates, increasing competition. # 7 Day Switch. # New digital entrants. # Rejected for takeover. # Falling share price. # Mug AIM stock followers.
Explain to us how Metro will be worth a billion when it won't be able to compete in a higher-interest environment and won't be able to raise capital at a good price. It isn't even ripe for takeover, it seems.

Yes and so if it was a hostile takeover the offer would have to be voted in by the shareholders, so it would have to be a good offer.
14-11-2021
Just look at the rns's of the 8.3 and the 8.5, this is the takeover code, it's doing it all by the book and with its major investors.It's happening and shorters really need to close now as its going to happen and very soon.Imo the deal is already done and the price is just a matter of how much. £5.00 + a share is a baseline. The sp was over £30.00 a share 3 year's ago. Crazy. Strong buy from me. Atb.

normally in a potential takeover situation like this hedge funds would be all over the stock. nothing of tbr sort here. instead we basically have no volume

I think we can tell Sediment is flapping as not many would be holding a 107p short position on this stock seems very fool hardy to me!.. I bet that announcement of a takeover came as a shock to him now he is trapped playing the waiting game hoping the deal falls through..How long can you hold a short position before it must close I guess 4 weeks in his case!
The risk is obvious Joseph. They don't bid and the price will fall short term... then bounce again as it always does. But I own shares. The bank is predicted to be profitable in 2023 so worst case in the long run at this price range I will still make a good profit. So the risks are very acceptable to me. On the other hand if that offer comes... Big win! Metro is ripe for takeover. I do believe Carlyle aren't the only ones interested. What they have done though is also raise Metro's profile hugely which was needed...
Meltdowns stunning SR obviously destroyed them everywhere Oh dear FCA ever allow a takeover of a stock under Fraud investigation ?
08-11-2021
Papers full of takeover bids by private equity groups...UK mid tier banks now moving firmly into the firing hairs of a number of large rival pe firms... leading papers are headlining. ....Interesting times ahead for Metro.
Interesting isn't it? FCA could set a new standard by allowing a takeover rather than conclude on potential fraud. Wouldn't that be an amazing door for the whole market Party time outcome Never before Even legal?

No answer? FCA going to allow a takeover during an investigation ? First time ever

Oh hold on "Merlot Man on 8th bottle of buckfast , thinks Lloyds will takeover mtro "
Sorry but in my shop we are aggregate short 301.46p with serious compounding Would let you visit if not a gerbil lol Word out NFX is a possible takeover job soon. That I do believe . No RNS though so you won't like it
Last week, Metro Bank announced it had received a takeover approach from Carlyle. A few weeks earlier, Co-op Bank — backed by JC Flowers and Bain Capital and a clutch of hedge funds — approached Spain’s Sabadell about a £1bn-plus potential purchase of its UK subsidiary TSB. These are tiny deals for huge firms. Metro, for example, has a market cap of barely £200m. So why bother? Well, there is the appeal of cheap price tags and a core logic of arbitraging the firm’s ample cheap funding on an operation with lending margins that look set to widen. But buyout executives will also be eyeing the consolidation opportunity of rolling up other lenders. If Carlyle did buy Metro, it could look at the Co-op and TSB, too, not to mention other mid-tier lenders. Flowers and Bain, via the Co-op, could do the same.
I think the last time I saw a stock have great takeover talk in the press all weekend and trade in the red on Monday, is now delisted

SR What stock will you move onto after takeover?
A takeover of Metro by the American giant will see another co disappear from the stock exchange and fall into the hands of a profit-hungry private equity firm based overseas." Metro said it had engaged with Carlyle and would make a further announcement as and when appropriate.
In essence the niche market that challenger banking is, has failed on the whole Only need to look at bluechip bank financials to figure that out So what happens? Massive all-round takeover speculations (for the 100th time ) Oh dear Bad Omen
Telegraph : The great challenger bank experiment has been a monumental failure Takeover talk for the likes of Metro Bank, Co-op and TSB suggests their investors do not see a bright future in tackling big banks .... Please highlight what was edited or misquoted

"Buyout sharks target British banks : Metro in the cross-hairs of US buyout giant."-This is Money, 4.11.21 "Private equity sharks have now set their sights on British banking sector and Metro found itself in the crosshairs of a US buyout giant. The challenger bank CONFIRMED yesterday that Carlyle HAD APPROACHED IT... A takeover of Metro by the American giant will see another co disappear from the stock exchange and fall into the hands of a profit-hungry private equity firm based overseas." "Metro said it had "ENGAGED WITH CARLYLE" and would make a further announcement "as and when appropriate." To read, call up the title.
... Oh Joseph...
crazi mergers dont always mean shareholder value be good for a bank tho but shareholders lower dooon the pecking order! how many times you seen a takeover and sharegolders left with little or nowt......................
Would be great to get a bidding war between Carlyle and Co-op. Not many mid size takeover banking opportunities around at all! So Co-op - it's now or never ;-)

As Frumkin has done takeover with Carlyle before he will have been feeding them info all year. Now as Covid is passing, economy recovering and just before end year results show great improvements (3rd quarter trading statement was vague.....deliberately I reckon) it's the perfect timing to make their move and buy... I reckon 250-300 will be their opening offer. Bondholders will want 500+ Where will they land in the middle?

It's no coincidence it's Carlyle making a move... Frumkin has done this with them before...! ******* Metro’s chief executive, Dan Frumkin, who took up the top role last year, has previously worked with Carlyle. He joined from Bermuda-based Butterfield Bank, where he was part of the management team who helped to restructure the troubled lender after its acquisition by Carlyle in 2010. What's the bet they buy Metro and leave Dan in charge to restructure with extra funding as his first takeover with Carlyle was a major success...
And looky here! Dan the man has inside connections... Metro’s chief executive, Dan Frumkin, who took up the top role last year, has previously worked with Carlyle.

What's the bet they buy Metro and leave Dan in charge to restructure with extra funding as his first takeover with Carlyle was a major success...
While Metro Bank’s share price is up more than 130% over the past year, to about 140p, it remains at a third of the 400p it was trading at three years ago. When the company floated on the stock market in 2016 it was valued at £1.6bn. In July, Frumkin said attempts to revive its fortunes were “beginning to bear fruitâ€￾, with half-year pre-tax losses reducing from £240m to £139m year-on-year. Earlier this year Carlyle, which declined to comment on the possible takeover, lost a £1.1bn bidding war for the inhaler firm Vectura to the tobacco company Philip Morris. The private equity company has a portfolio of investments in the UK including the housing developer Beechcraft, video games producer Jagex, luxury clothing retailer END and global funds network Calastone.
Joseph - drivel all you like. Facts are you were 15% up on your short pre-opening and now 15% down. So you really can't say much. Today you got smoked. Your last short you closed out at a double loss as well. Metro has you bleeding funds... Metro SP was always way too cheap but they had no exposure so got hammered down. At least now they have large exposure as word spreads of a possible takeover... Happy to wait it out and hold at these low levels. Bond holders in at 500 in 2019 and even higher before that. The 500 was them averaging down. A very nice place to be for shareholders getting in at only 134 :-) That doesn't happen often that the small PI are in much much lower than the bondholders...

WShak @WShak1 · 9m There have been dubious takeover stories on Metro Bank before which came to nothing, so caution is advised. #MTRO
Align Research @AlignResearch Metro Bank #MTRO Reported Carlyle interest re takeover. With tangible book value in excess of 300p and int rate cycle on the turn for banks can see a takeout beginning with a 2. BUY.

Your argument is weak It’s a shit business . No macro or otherwise changes it Tell everyone the truth now. I recognise your posting style, and it was around 1800p when Goodbody was suggesting aggressive takeover possible 😂
13-09-2021
Another takeover ? #152
I chased investor relations for an investor call and they didn't respond. sometimes that happens when companies are in takeover talks. Market cap is ridiculously low given the opportunity in the uk market
16-08-2021
No, Ball Deap (sic). 80p, 40p, and then 10p cometh. This is not a takeover target as the business-model doesn't compel.
Short squeeze will start here soon. Everything else in the UK is attracting takeover interest, so why not Metro Bank?
06-07-2021
Thank god mtro is a takeover target must be very tempting alright massive premium comin fookin massive assured........................

Metro could do a reverse-takeover into Metro's Fried Chicken. The large stores will have plenty of room for the kitchen, and a lovely big lobby area. They could clear the table with Chicken Cottage. Cluckin' awesome! hxxp://metrosfriedchicken.com/
