cc2014: 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
this_is_me: 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.
this_is_me: David, as I pointed out last week I managed to find our about NTBR 6 years ago and invested a reasonable amount. The fact that the share price is now around 5 times what I paid shows that others have been buying and pushing the share price up. The company gets the occasional mention in Investors Chronicle and some investors use the likes of Sharescope to find likely companies. So you are not correct. I suspect a lot of selling pressure is from retired directors whose companies were taken over in share based deals. Institutions rarely take any interest in companies as small as NTBR. That will be less so in the future as they have seen what happened to Woodford when the great unwashed invested, not understanding anything about liquidity. A lot of short term investors is not what we need temporarily pushing the share price up only to get fed up and sell just as quickly trashing the share price.
davidosh: Exbroker.... If you are an ex broker then I am sure you know none of those are institutional holders? Why do you think institutions are not interested? If a company is listed then the share price does need to reflect the value of the company. NTBR is currently on a p/e of 5 after the lift up this was on a p/e below 5 and a yield of 5%. If the directors do nothing about it then it should not be a surprise that someone else has done this. There is an argument for the company to have bought back shares but in reality the liquidity is already quite poor so a bigger dividend would be better with any free cash and the yield would surely then attract more buyers too.
3800: well if he gets less than a 1% take up the whole tender offer gets pulled. The whole thing must be costing him a fortune compared with the size of the company I cannot imagine why someone with no background or connection with this area of business would go to all this trouble. 72p is of no interest to me personally I'm staying a holder for now the share price has been higher than that in the last couple of years with the dividend quadrupling in the last 4 years. I know it's a very cyclical business but it's worth more than that.
ed_derby: Does anyone have a view on how the aspiration to buy the 5,400,000 at 72p could play out ... immediate impact is the share price has increased ... and maybe Northern Bear has a little more profile ... but where could we be this time next week?
zangdook: I do have some empathy for directors who want to get on with running their company and persuading people to buy their services rather than travelling all the way to London to try to persuade other people to buy their shares from each other. It's nice when companies take an interest in presenting themselves but, except when they're looking to raise money, not really their core responsibility. I'd rather my investment appreciated because the company was whipping up business in the north to support the share price and dividend, rather than whipping up investor frenzy down south. I've had enough of little fraudy types who spend all their time raising money and never get around to making any.
meijiman: If they get say plus 20% then they would be able to demand a seat on the board. Can't help thinking that if this company was promoted properly and given its secure dividend the share price would be more like 80/90p. These Canadians clearly see value here.
this_is_me: There may well be some larger holders, such as retired directors, that will be glad to cash out, even though the share price is low. I intend to keep all of mine. If it sparks some widespread interest in the company we will not complain.
cc2014: Kier won't go bust. Because the situation with Kier is different than Carillion and Interserve as Kier are making profits unlike Carillion and Interserve. So, even in the worse possible case the bond holders will do a debt for equity swap to wipe out most of the debt. Sharesholders may get punished but the company will continue and creditors will get paid. Having said that the share price of a quid on Kier is telling us something. They need to raise some cash by selling some assets. I know they have sold some parcels of land for £25m and if they raised £100m things would look very different. The share price is artificially low on Kier as St. James Place and Woodford are selling out due to Woodford deciding to now only hold FTSE100+FTSE250 and Woodford being removed as the portfolio manager at St. James who have a rule only FTSE100+FTSE250. I expect the share price at Kier will bounce once St. James have finished selling.
