Predators told to raise their bid for Morrisons as political backlash against the private equity takeover begins City brokers yesterday said the private equity firm would have to dramatically raise the stakes if it is serious about buying Morrisons. They said the supermarket’s board, led by chairman Andy Higginson, was unlikely to negotiate unless the bid was upped to at least 280p a share. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/money/markets/article-9714219/Private-equity-predators-told-raise-bid-Morrisons.html

Takeover target Morrisons has seen recent shopper spend fall from a year earlier when customers went on bumper buying sprees at the start of the pandemic, but the figure is still much higher than pre-Covid. Data from market research firm Kantar shows some of the features that might make the grocery chain look attractive to private equity group Clayton, Dubilier & Rice. The suitor recently proposed a 230p per share offer which has been rejected. In the 12 weeks to June 13 £3.1 billion was spent at Morrisons. That is down 1.5% year on year, but 8.9% higher than the same period in 2019. The grocer’s market share was flat at 10.1%. Rivals Tesco, Sainsbury’s and Asda all recorded improved market share versus the same time last year.

Nail on the head. I've held since 2014 paying average 206p/share so any trading profit looks lacklustre spread over seven years. Actually none of those numbers above would excite me, I'd prefer to still be a holder in 20 years from now.

A quick look at the hi-lo yearly chart shows why 230p may not be particularly exciting to long term holders who might easily have secured their shares at such a level or higher. Top Shareholders: hTTps://markets.ft.com/data/equities/tearsheet/profile?s=MRW:LSE That prices 170-180p were glaringly low was highlighted by the SBRY sprint away from mkt-cap similarity with MRW. There was no particular trading reason why SBRY should have opened up a 1 billion+ gap when MRW trading had been at least as good. Moreover why was value investor Silchester still adding to its already large position. There were months of opportunities to stock up at the lows while these possible bull points existed. 2020 203.70 157.55 2019 239.35 175.15 2018 270.50 203.30 2017 254.40 205.00 2016 230.82 144.40 2015 214.80 138.60 2014 262.50 150.60 2013 312.30 247.50 2012 339.70 255.20 2011 326.20 261.70 2010 307.10 255.00 2009 298.40 233.50 2008 324.25 210.75 2007 345.97 243.75 2006 275.00 183.25 2005 224.00 158.25 2004 259.81 169.88 2003 233.95 140.00

£7.4B - £4.3B = £3.1B debt?

Hindsight 'analysis'. Morrisons' property is not 'prime private equity' (to be flogged off), is integral to the business as part of its vertically integrated model. He also ignores £3.2 billion net debt.

AJ Bell: Morrisons bidding war potential Analyst Russ Mould said the balance sheet ‘has plenty of asset backing and the valuation was relatively depressed’ before the bid. As of close of trading on Friday, the business was worth £4.3bn but had £7.4bn of property and assets, which Mould said made it ‘prime private equity territory’.

Look we could all see this coming. It's been a sitting duck for the last 2 years. OK no one wants to see this company bought out by an American company so why doesn't an English company buy it ? The truth is that as usual NO other British / English company is willing to pay the money otherwise they would. Most British companies just don't like to fund long term bets it's all about short term deals and then get out. And it's about time that changed.

Disclosure of a holding over 1% that must be declared after offer RNS. I believe they have a maximum of 10 days to declare.

Our local Morrisons is fully stocked and competitively priced. Meat is definitely better and cheaper than Tesco

Sad to see Morrison get taken out. But years of mismanagement have finally caught up with it. The shop is an overpriced, understocked, chaotic, offline fossil. Feel sorry for frontline staff in the stores. The best days are behind it. The (most likely) American buyers will quickly asset-strip Morrison, quietly slash jobs, pressure remaining employees to work (much) more for less, load the firm up to the gills with debt, and run away with multimillion bonuses. Also feel sorry for the London Stock Exchange. MRW is yet another big delisting. A flood of delistings, calamitous IPOs, and plunging liquidity... the London market is all but dead. We're witnessing a collapse in the British retail industry, right before our very eyes. Britain no longer has the wealth or management skills to compete with the best from America or Germany.

Daily Mail market report: ....Legal & General, a top 10 shareholder, said it would not add 'genuine value'. But CDR is said to be preparing for another go, with other suitors waiting in the wings. Internet shopping giant Amazon could gatecrash the process, while private equity firms Lone Star and Apollo previously bid for Asda. Russ Mould, investment director at AJ Bell, said: 'The market value of Morrisons had weakened so much that it clearly triggered some alerts in the private equity space to say the value on offer was looking much more attractive. The issue now is how the big shareholders respond and whether they – and the Morrisons board – feel they can squeeze out a higher bid or feel sufficiently confident in Morrisons' position to spurn the offer altogether. 'The market seems confident that the suitor will have to raise its offer or someone else might step into the game and we'll see a bidding war.' The groceries sector is highly competitive and is not seen as a typical hunting ground for private equity firms. L&G senior fund manager Andrew Koch said he did not expect CDR to succeed unless it increased its bid. full article: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/money/markets/article-9709637/Supermarket-shares-soar-Morrisons-war-hots-up.html

67,478,281 volume on LSE today. 139 million shares disclosed as short, maybe these have been closed elsewhere and will be reported tomorrow. Hilariously Citadel Europe LLP have just disclosed they increased their short again last Friday. Closed higher than offer with decent volume. Many appear to expect this to go through. I can't see the current bidder raising their price enough though. Can't really compare with the ASDA TO as that was on offer.
