.... those were the days - we used to get real movement in the share price every day. Thank goodness I didn't lose my nerve (even when down >50%). Just a shame I had to cash out early on the way back up!

90% discounted share issue ...: The Company proposes to raise approximately £287 million (before expenses) by way of a Rights Issue underwritten by UBS in full. The Rights Issue will take place alongside a Share Consolidation under which the Existing Ordinary Shares are to be consolidated into £1 Ordinary Shares on a one for 10 basis. Pursuant to the Rights Issue the Directors propose to offer New Ordinary Shares at £1 per share to all Qualifying Shareholders on the basis of five New Ordinary Shares of £1 each for every two Existing Ordinary Shares of 10 pence each that each Qualifying Shareholder holds at the close of business on the Rights Issue Record Date. In effect, taking into account the Share Consolidation, the Rights Issue offer is being made on a 25 for one basis and at the Rights Issue Price of £1 per £1 New Ordinary Share. In effect, this represents a 90.2 per cent. discount to the Closing Price of an Existing Ordinary Share of 102 pence on 10 January 2008. If a Qualifying Shareholder does not take up any of his entitlement to New Ordinary Shares, his proportionate shareholding will be diluted by 96.2 per cent. However, if a Qualifying Shareholder takes up his rights in full, he will, following the Share Consolidation and the Rights Issue being completed and subject to the treatment of fractions, have the same proportional voting rights and entitlements to distributions as he had on the Rights Issue Record Date.

... allowing for the 10:1 consolidation in 2008 it needs to rise to £75 to make a record high! Happy days when it gets there.

All time high??? Before the 2008 emergency rights issue to salvage the company from the brink of collapse, the shares traded at over £7 (early 2006 - and I know because I sold some). Stock is scarce, but looks fully valued to me.

Posting an unsubstantiated assertion and then adding "end of" does not, in fact, end anything (except, perhaps, any claim you may make to being a credible poster).

shaker44 - yes, so long as they then cancel them rather than filling exec pockets with them (via nil paid options or creative "incentive" schemes.)

Nope. If a company feels the best use of their cash is to buy in shares, they are usually right in my experience. They are very well placed to assess when their share price undervalued the company. Of course not in every case, but analysts like to see buybacks for good reason. Shrink the equity and increase returns in equity. Makes perfect sense.

The market determines the share price not a buy back. If buy backs put a floor under the share price, then put every penny you can get your hands on and put it into any company that does buy backs. You will in one single move be on a one way trip to richness. Sadly it doesn't work like that. SSE is currently doing a £0.5B buy back which started when the share price was ~£15, we are now below £14 and it looks like the only way is down. Buy backs lack imagination. Companies should be putting every spare penny to work, either plough it into the business to give a ROI or buy some other company to help push the profits up. Failing that give it to the shareholders who'll find a better use for it elsewhere.

I don't agree. It puts a floor under the share price and all buys help it move up. Far sooner see that than companies making acquisitions unwisely. Many investment trusts buy back at a discount to reduce that discount.

In general I hate companies that buy back shares. This (as stated in previous posts) is all for the benefit of the board, who do not get bonuses based on the share price performance. It does effect the EPS which can be their rule of measure how well the company is doing, linked to bonus. Give the money back to the shareholders who can do something tangible with the money. (In my experience) enhancing EPS by buying back shares rarely does anything for shareholders who are in it for capital gains.

The generosity of the nil paids dished out to directors here leaves a bad taste, but at least there have been shareholder gains under their stewardship.

Spot on EC - PAG has long been run for the benefit of the directors - with some "collateral benefit" spreading out to shareholders. That said they have delivered pretty good results - so either you accept the policy of "Board first" - or else you sell.

I suspect the approach may not be unconnected with the fact that buying back shares helps bonuses whereas paying dividends does not. "As the business grows and becomes more diversified, while the level of regulation increases, the focus on effective risk management becomes of increasing importance to the long term wellbeing of the Group. The Committee is mindful that the PSP should reflect a balance of the key performance indicators for the business. In line with market practice in the sector and to reflect the regulatory environment and good governance for a regulated business, it has therefore been decided to introduce a risk-based element into the PSP. This is in order to maintain the balance of internal and external measures, meaning that the risk and EPS elements will in future constitute 50% of the award. Further details of how risk will be assessed for the PSP to be granted following the Group’s results announcement are detailed in section B5.2.3".
