Totally agree.The takeover will be bad for customers, staff and probably shareholders too in the long run.Does not matter what they say they only in it for the money.

The chancers aren't just the people looking to buy, I think you have to include wanting to sell, ie. the directors.

Recently shopped at Morristons too. Felt a bit like a Waitrose on steroids except for sensible prices. What a shame if this ever gets taken out, lets hope the shareholders tell the chancers where to stick their greedy fat hands.

I always shop at Sainsburys. However recently there were so many items out of stock I decided to try Morrisons. Difference was night and day not one item I needed was out of stock. Impressed.

If Silchester think that the Fortress bid doesn't offer anything which could not already be achieved as a listed company why is the current MRW management so keen to endorse the offer. They have been "humiliated" hTTps://www.dailymail.co.uk/money/markets/article-9831511/Top-Morrisons-investor-rejects-private-equity-bid-supermarket.html Could it be that David Potts thinks he has done his time and wants to depart. All the charity giveaways during the pandemic seemed to suggest he was keen for a gong to embellish the end of his time at the company. The average tenure of a CEO is just over 5 years. Potts has been at the helm for over six years and generally considered to have done well to improve performance and recover from the hapless previous management. Even if the bidders claim the current team are staying post-bid that could just be another lure to try and secure bid acceptance.

Any idea why the board didn't sound out how likely it's major investors were to support the deal before recommending it?Seems very wasteful of time and resources to go through these motions if it could be easily determined if it has no chance of passing.

Good news. It even sounds like they're not likely to vote for any asset-stripping price.

This link (dated June 2021) has the general public at over 13% ownership in which case it does look as if nominee accounts also mean some PI. hTTps://simplywall.st/stocks/gb/consumer-retailing/lse-mrw/wm-morrison-supermarkets-shares/news/what-is-the-ownership-structure-like-for-wm-morrison-superma "General Public Ownership With a 13% ownership, the general public have some degree of sway over Wm Morrison Supermarkets. While this size of ownership may not be enough to sway a policy decision in their favour, they can still make a collective impact on company policies."

I use Sainsurys in Guildford. Have everything delivered and it is a great service. So far nearly aways get what we ordered or a replacement with voucher for difference in price.

I’d also looked there but found it hard to interpret. There’s the “Nominee Companies” entry that accounts for 88.68% of the share capital. Are PI’s with shares in nominee accounts included as a small part of that section?

The only sure fire way of making your vote *really* count is to withdraw your holding from your nominee account and vote as a legal holder and not as a beneficial holder... ahh lovely expensive dead tree certs

Re nominee accounts, I'm with iWeb for my ISA and I voted online in (against...) the SKY takeover vote. Very straightforward, I'm assuming this will be the same. EDIT: actually, that SKY situation was different, not a scheme of arrangement, I held out for a while but finally accepted the offer online. I'm not sure now that I'll get a vote on MRW. EDIT: used the chat facility on the website to ask if I will get to vote and actually ended up voting (against), or at least having my instruction submitted, took 2 minutes. Not entirely convinced it will get counted though.

I read this WSJ article, linked below, on my 'phone yesterday, behind a paywall now though. Generally interesting and some discussion of MRW in particular. Worth a read if you can. htTps://www.wsj.com/articles/private-equity-firms-spark-bidding-wars-in-u-k-11627214400

Did my shopping for the week at morrisons kirkstall branch this morning, got in there at 06.50. Wet fish counter gone. Dozens of staff not in uniform filling shelves and chilled display units. A lot of new chilled display units and a lot of things moved to new locations, as a result I didn't get out of there until 07.20. Have given up using more card, OFFERS are pathetic. Doesn't bode well for the future. May well defect to sainsburys and use nectar card only ..

I presume PI's holding their shares in nominee accounts likely need to send their instruction for the votes reasonably in advance. With that in mind I have just sent my instruction to HL to vote against the scheme.
