Forensic, good spot ! Yes, 11,000 crossed in the closing auction @ 800p. That's despite them being offered freely at 770p all afternoon. Most odd.

Looks like a very tight market for MPE shares at the moment. It's very difficult to buy even in small quantities. AS book value here is something like £11.00 It's not impossible that KLKB will come back in late June (when the 6-month lock-out expires) and make a higher offer.

The Fidelity letter of intent was for the bid at 640 they did not join in the one at 740. It looks like the company is buying in small amounts of shares and that what has moved the price up. KLK don’t look like they are going to pay more than 715 yet.

Ta, Exbroker. :-) I didn't know Fidelity had voted that way. They had orignally been one of those who stated an intention to vote against the offer. It was non-binding, though. I see someone has been buying today at 730p. Maybe we'll get another KLK holding announcement soon?

Hi Ed123 Most of the acceptance came from Fidelity who have sold the stock at 715 so your numbers are a touch light!

I like your optimism, roidster1. My view, fwiw ........ Market accumulation is very slow now for KLK. Needs another major holder to fold, imo. KLK bought 11% for around 715p. Those who voted to accept 740p (if they still hold) would presumably accept the same again. That would take KLK potentially up to around 24% at <750p. On that basis 775-800p might do it? Can KLK get one more significant holder on board at <800p?

Klk have bought 600000 and 5 million plus in last week or so. They now have 11.3%. Klk have just been upgraded to a buy in the star. I would imagine that with the companies share buybacks we will see near 8£ a share. I expect Klk to offer 9-10 to the board within a few months which no doubt will be accepted. Especially if they (klk) buy close to 30%. I wouldn't see acceptances for less than 850-9. 9-10 yes....keep your hats on it could be fun. Also the pound gas appreciated some 4% which equates to 27p ish per share. So the stronger the pound the more expensive it will be to buy...id expect them to want to do it as quickly as possible.

If you are KLKB then you either want to own all the shares in MPE or none. They are building up a position to give them a better negotiating position. Looks like they bought up to 600k odd today. HSBC have been doing the volume.

Yes, interesting, Pineapple1. Potential clash of rules as far as I understand it. If KLK were to exceed 30% then normally there would be a mandatory bid but in a 'no bid' period till 6 months elapsed. If some of the other institutional holders get onto the Board there may be an agreed bid. I wouldn't be surprised if this happened.

Ta, Exbroker. :-) I had wondered about the trades at 715p. So, for sellers, best to contact KLK's agent. 6 months, not long to wait. Volume looking better today. I don't think KLK bought any shares during their bid period, so their highest buy price over the previous 12 months might only be 715p. Possible starting price for the opening takeover bid, second time round?

Yes a couple of decent sized AT trades today the most recent being 214,000 at 700. Someone is distributing of course but its a willing buyer. If it is KLK then they must surely plan to comeback. I wonder what happens if theyget to the 30% level . Maybe they'll sit just below once finished buying.

Ed123 KLKB are in the market again today at 715, They have to wait 6 months not 12 and can bid now if the board agree the terms.

The buyer was KLK! I guess KLK will come back 12 months after the lapse and try again. They're almost certain to get more acceptances the next time, since they start off with their own 9.8%. They may hoover loosely held shares till 12 month anniversary. Why not? It's possible for them to buy in the market at prices below their takeover offer.

So, there were 13.2% acceptances at 740p and a 9.8% sale at 715p. 23% total at 740p or less. There may be other holders who, like FIL, having misjudged KLK, would now be softer. Fwiw, I suspect that an 800p bid could succeed. KLK are excluded from that for now, unless they get an agreement from MPE's board. A fresh party could appear with a hostile bid, however.

Yes, Typo56, 5,464,284 shares is exactly the size of FIL's holding. It was 9.8% of the issued shares. Seems FIL took a gamble that KLK would go above the 740p bid ....................... but got that one wrong. Accepting 715p now is a damage limitation exercise by FIL. Maybe that 9.8% can be committed to a fresh bid (obviously above 715p)? Yes, who bought will be very interesting. We'll find out soon.

Looking at that 5.5m trade, have FIL sold? If so, who bought?

I wonder if KLK are coming back, Seems perky today and i doubt as a result of the share buyback

Hi Ohisay. I'm fine thanks, and yourself? Thanks for that EK piece. Yes, probably explains yesterday's strength. I'm still holding and, although I've questioned the stances of both management and major investors, I continue to think that a deal will be done - perhaps with KLK, perhaps with another party. Anyway, as I bought in at about 420p I'm likely to exit at some point with a useful profit. I've had a quick look at RE.. I guess, once again the value is in the assets, as opposed to current earnings. Not holding any but may get time to look a bit deeper over the break.
