Indeed...of course, the other danger with buying to tender is that some big holder goes nuts and tenders are scaled back.

We could ask Mr B to throw in a copy of the book with every 1000 shares tendered. You can buy 10,000 for 71p now. I'm trying to find the energy to make a decision. Is it worth tying up that much cash for a month when there are some good bargains out there? Probably not.

I'd missed the point with the author too sharw. I won't be buying the book either. 3800

I don't own any shares but have watched NTBR for a long time and I was kind of interested enough to do half an hour's research on Jeff. I suggest he's got a plan out of which he will make money but I struggle to guess what it is. Suggestions; 1. He gets around 20% of the shares and then moves the company on at a higher price to someone at a much higer price. I note he seems to be buying the shares personally so maybe he has a number of funds he will shift it on to. Maybe he has a bidder lined up at a quid but they aren't interested unless they can be sure they can get 50% of the votes without a bidding war. Possibly one of the other holders has already indicated they would be up for this. In which case you all do very well if you hold. 2. 20% would be enough to get a seat on the board and along with another large holder or two they can take control and start pillaging the company through management charges for expertise, at the same time paying out large non-exec fees, dividends and loading it up with debt. In which case you all do very badly apart from the dividend stream. Think Laura Ashley as an example of how this is done. 3. Possibly he gets a seat on the Board and uses his contacts to give NTBR access to large amounts of capital for expansion, using agressive accounting policies, thereby pushing the share price up. The only bit I don't understand yet is that he won't get much influence unless he gets 15% of the shares and even that really isn't enough, so he must have some of the large shareholders lined up. Whatever he's up to my research suggests he's not just going to buy the shares, sit on them for 10 years and collect the dividends. Maybe I'm overcomlicating it. Maybe he just sees value, hopes to get 29.9% now and then will make a bid in a year's time. GLA

zandook - I wouldn't pay $5 for it either but you and exbroker may have missed the point that the author is the person who is now tendering 72p for our shares. What he must be paying in legal fees for the tender documents must dwarf any broker fees!

"The directory lists more than 500 North American and foreign companies, all of which trade on major stock exchanges. Amazingly, you can start investing in some of these companies with as little as $100!" Not a blurb that inspires me to pay $5 for that book, sharw. What's his theory, anyway? I'm paying a fiver a pop, but I wouldn't mind saving that for beer.

Agreed This_is_me 20,000 were the shares I acquired immediately after the announcement.....mr market a little slow to react! I have a further (larger) holding of NTBR and will NOT be tendering these Having said that I remain a very frustrated shareholder and certainly feel management should do more to engage with us, its owners. I concur with the views of davidosh on this subject. Its response to the Tender Offer was typically pathetic.....I believe they could at the very least give a trading update, as the did last year (20 Sept). Maybe they will, next week?

The other risk that you take is that the share price gets above 80p again. If you managed to buy some at 66p for the short term trade then you are a winner but selling at 72p is not necessarily a good idea for a long term investor.

"....it is a way to sell and not pay a steep brokers charge " I take it you've been reading his book: hTtps://www.amazon.com/Fee-Free-Investing-Updated-Stocks-Brokers/dp/0385658206

The BOD will be looking at the document now it has been posted, I expect they will comment soon. It could just be an investor trying to buy a stake in what he sees as the quickest and most efficient way, given the shareholders list and low volumes he may have a point. If you hold a small number of shares it is a way to sell and not pay a steep brokers charge and at 72p. I am not selling any of mine.

I will not be tendering any. I have to say I'm quite surprised with the numbers which have added up. 3800

Thinking about its remarkable that the BOD haven’t mounted any defence against this share grab and potential precursor to taking it private or at least installing a representative on the Board. Any other BOD would be at the very least declaring that it undervalues the company and highlight why and advise shareholders to keep the faith.

ok, I spoke without calculating the number. I guess it'll very likely go ahead then.

I've got 84,000 all of which I will be rendering. So with zangdook that more or less gets us to 0.5%

Straw poll - I doubt we'll get 1% on here. I'm thinking of doing a minor topslice of 1600 shares.

You don't want the AGM to be in Newcastle at 9 (in fact it was at 11), but your London bash starts at 9. How is that "shareholder friendly"? Not everyone lives in the South.

That's true - anyone fancy doing a straw poll on here to see if we get to the 1%? I'm happy to kick things off of others are keen...

What will happen to the price if less than 1% is tendered? Thats the risk, you could loose alot more than 2% in a short term trade if the tender doen't go ahead

Maybe I am missing something here but is there not a quick 2% to be made by buying today at 0.7045 and tendering for 0.72?

I think you are rather disparaging if you call these events a London bash. They are very well run conferences where investors can efficiently meet up to 60 companies over a couple of days. I doubt you have ever been to one but take a look... Https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YKEZWQRlakI#action=share We run them around the country so not just in London and small cap fund managers attend as well as 1000 investors. I do not think Agms at 9am in Newcastle is a shareholder friendly gesture whether my company has an office there or not. Shareholders from almost anywhere in the country can get to a 2pm Agm in one day....not so at 9am so nobody apparently turned up even with hundreds of shareholders.
