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.

I'm voting against it too. I have been a long term investor, as a shareholder and shopper, and feel the deal is more to satisfy the board at the cost of most shareholders.

The problem is that 60 - 80 percent of PIs won't vote

Is everyone here intending to vote against the offer the board has recommended? If I've understood correctly it needs 75% approval to pass. If a lot of PI vote than it could be enough to make a difference.

That text in my last post was a quote from the Iceland boss. I personally think the exec seem too keen to accept a low bid, they might have expected further bidding but it's not guaranteed and they do stand to cash in either way, their banker advisors also might have incentives to accept any deal. If this bid goes to a vote and gets rejected there might be further haggling but if we end up keeping our shares I don't think we can keep the exec.

htTps://www.thisismoney.co.uk/money/article-9815849/Business-secretary-Kwasi-Kwarteng-backs-6-3bn-takeover-Morrisons.html 'Generally private equity investment in retail businesses that were once public are designed to strip assets out and increase profits before the business is flipped. 'Morrisons is asset-rich because it was a family-owned business and it has been undervalued. 'I do not think foreign investors are coming to Britain because it is a great place for investment – I think it is because they want to make money. The board should be rejecting the offer. They have turned over and had their tummies tickled too early.'

"Investment are you mad. They will sell all the land assets the company has then lease them back, they will take out Billions in bonuses and dividends and leave the company a mere shell of itself on the brink of bankruptcy." Remember Debenhams.. Kwarteng gets it wrong on Morrisons: Private equity thrives on cutting jobs not creating them, says ALEX BRUMMER https://www.dailymail.co.uk/money/comment/article-9815527/ALEX-BRUMMER-Kwarteng-gets-wrong-Morrisons.html

Doubt anything is imminent as volumes only average today. The hedge funds have not jumped into this one with any vigour. Reportedly they believe the risk/reward ratio is not good enough?

Apollo haven't entirely ruled out a bid, they reserve the right to bid if Fortress pull out and Morries exec allow them to bid.
