those short will no doubt be a little anxious - and by the time the US opens expect this to rocket further. Wouldnt be surprised to see the old takeover rumour rehashed as wel for good measure just to boost the price north of 500p once more
Micro Focus eyeing equity raise - Dealreporter May 15, 2020 2:51 PM ET|About: Micro Focus International plc (MFGP)|By: Brandy Betz, SA News Editor Dealreporter sources say Micro Focus (NYSE:MFGP) will raise equity to offset its high leverage and potential coronavirus headwinds. The company could place 20% of its issued share capital in an accelerated bookbuild, an equity market offering done in a short time period with little marketing. Micro Focus' debt level could reduce the chances of a near-term takeover, despite recent attempts to resume talks with former interested buyers.

found this a bit earlier Micro Focus +12% on reported acquisition talks Apr. 28, 2020 12:30 PM ET|About: Micro Focus International plc (MFGP)|By: Brandy Betz, SA News Editor Micro Focus (NYSE:MFGP) gains 12.1% after TMT Finance says the company is having go-private talks with potential buyers. TMT sources say the talks started after Micro Focus failed to find a buyer for its carved out HPE assets. Source: Bloomberg. Last October, reports circulated that Open Text was considering a Micro Focus takeover bid.
Or is it the bid Canadian Open Text, who denied it when Bloomberg mentioned they were interested in takeover for Micro Focus.
Takeover target territory- watch out for stake building / holdings notification. Predators must be building down here you’d think.
monty, i think you are ignorant, don,t think you know even how to read a balance sheet.the only thing that could save this company is a takeover by somebody who wants to acquire talented software staff.Autonomy acquisition is the expensive mistake.so i stand by my penny share prediction unless a bid comes along.
Yes but he owns 8m pounds worth already, then buys another 500,0000 pounds worth, he knows these are ridiculously cheap. It’s a great sign of confidence.Takeover I reckon within a six months, my guess.
You talk about bear squeezes, fairly low amount short, probably Blackrock lending the stock out, said before this company has set out a strategy, the fact that it owns COBOL is a huge advantage, most mainframes still use this language globally, and it is pretty essential despite its age, more likely that a takeover occurs, and they will sort out the issues at HPE.
Loosemore booted out he does not get his share option worth around 8m pounds, but BUYS 500,000 pounds worth of shares at 763p.Even he knows this is ridiculously cheap. Takeover within 6 months my guess. 1200p would do it.
So why raise the dividend just to placate wary shareholders, definitely in play now as a takeover story, activist shareholders crawling over this one in short time, already one on board, needs to start asserting their influence, but more likely an opportunistic bid should their statement run true.
Need someone to come in for a takeover, break it up, sell it off, like most of the uk’s ftse 350, uninvestable.
Crazy I know still reckon over 1200p end of week. If figures disappoint, hedgies shorts around 3.2% will close sometime. Takeover speculation will be rife once again.
Hedgie Dodge and Cox hold 17%.I’m sure takeover news after figures.
Don’t think so, what will happen bad numbers already in price, from 1700p to 990p. 10% fall in revenue expected.Takeover speculation will re-emerge.UBS said BUY target 1530p 3 days ago.
I think if crap results shorting hedgies increased their bets last few days so they are confident.Surely takeover by someone, they would be a sitting duck if awful results.We know revenue down 10%. That’s why 1015p not the 1700p they were.
Once figures are known, that’s when I think takeover rumours will start, venture capitalists wanted this a few years ago, sitting duck for take over, hedgie Dodge and Cox built up 17%.
Finals next Tuesday the 4th Feb, we know revenue down 8% that’s why it fell from 1700p, that was overdone of course.But Micro still a cash and always paid massive dividends. Expect the same next Tuesday.Takeover gossip thrown in for nothing.
Kainos what a winner and looking good but p.e 55 I have taken a profit, but surely Micro p.e 6.9 for a software company, yield 11.5% they always seem to pay out. They said revenue down 8% and shares got absolutely trashed from 1700p overdone the fall.Takeover speculation thrown in for nothing.4th Feb will tell us,
