Experts said Morrisons might have to be broken up if it is sold. City analysts Bernstein said the new owners would need to sell off part of the supermarket to reclaim some cash. Bernstein said buyers would struggle to make a profit "without significant asset sales”. As well as the supermarkets themselves, Morrisons owns petrol stations, food factories and depots. A second group of analysts, William Woods, said if the price of Morrisons goes up any further then this could mean the buyers have to sell off bits of it.

Well it didn’t go back to 272p (today’s low 278.1p) - Not yet anyway but I won’t be adding at these lofty levels. Let’s see whether we get another offer? Good luck to all holding.

Morrisons board and the takeover panel would not have allowed more time to the private equity firm if they did not think it was going to come back with a higher offer, CD&R may have to offer at least 275p, although the City is deeming 280p more appropriate. Since takeover talks started, Silchester, has been trimming its stake and has made £5mln from 1.7mln shares sold at 282p.

The Times: Clayton Dubilier & Rice, the American private equity firm that first put Wm Morrison in play, is gearing up to trump a rival £6.7bn offer for the British supermarkets chain this week and to persuade its target’s board to change its recommendation. EG: A new offer is expected for Morrisons this week as Clayton Dubilier & Rice seeks to trump Fortress. CD&R has until Friday to submit a bid to rival Fortress's £6.7bn offer, and to convince the board to change its recommendation.

The American private equity firm that first put Wm Morrison in play is gearing up to trump a rival £6.7 billion offer for the British supermarkets chain this week and to persuade its target’s board to change its recommendation. Clayton Dubilier & Rice, which counts Sir Terry Leahy, the former Tesco chief executive, as an operating partner, has until Friday’s bid deadline to make a higher offer or walk away. It started the bid battle in June with a 230p-a-share possible offer, but competition from a consortium led by Fortress, another American buyout group, means that it will have to raise its price by at least a fifth to beat its rival.

The risk and margin mean it's impossible to profitability trade into unless you have an existing position.

Strange remark No one has suggested the existing offer won't stand.It's just at 270+2p.

Doesn't sound promising.Expect this to drop closer to the 272p existing offer price tomorrow.

"Talks to get the US investment giant Apollo on board to finance a bid to buy Morrisons have cooled after a shock increase in the offer price earlier this month. New York-based Apollo had been lined up to join a takeover consortium led by the private equity firm Fortress. But market sources this weekend said they believed Apollo had baulked at the dramatic £400million price increase for the supermarket chain. Fortress increased its offer from £6.3billion to £6.7billion nine days ago in a highly unusual pre-emptive strike to gazump its rival Clayton Dubilier & Rice, advised by former Tesco chief executive Sir Terry Leahy."

I usually ignore Motley Fool articles, usually just punters talking their book, that one comes across as bear in bull's clothing but interesting in that it broaches the subject of post-failed-bid share price. htTps://www.fool.co.uk/investing/2021/08/11/how-high-will-morrisons-share-price-go-in-the-bidding-war/

I don't really get this idea that a higher price is going to change the buyers behaviour. I expect they will have their plans and calculations. If the price is lower it means more profit for them. If they see routes to a higher return why would they not use them whatever price they pay?

How high will Morrisons’ share price go in the bidding war? Morrisons’ shares: what’s the right price? My original valuation of 260p-270p was based on a buyer only making small changes to Morrisons’ financial structure. I admit I was hoping that whoever bought Morrisons wouldn’t need to sell off its freehold property and load the group up with debt — techniques that are often used by private equity to boost the returns they can generate. However, I think that if the price tag rises any further, then buyers are likely to use more aggressive methods to make money from the deal. To estimate a possible winning price, I’ve revisited my numbers. My sums suggest that if a buyer is happy to sell some of Morrisons’ freehold property and increase debt levels, then a bid of 300p could be justified. That’s a level Morrisons’ share price last hit in January 2012, when profits were much higher.

Who would add at this stage? Someone who thought it was just that... a stage. Adding at 262 felt edgy... then... but not now.Getting edgy feels again.
