Wouldnt call it tiny, $2Billion market cap and they are in the same sector as PSON, so its very relevant.

EI: The update does look good - and it's a good sign that no one has commented on it as it must mean PSON is under the radar of most investors.

There is TONS AND TONS of catch-up Pearson has got to do to get level with REL.L(I know REL does different stuff but the two always get lumped together).

Cheers Net

Goldman Sachs raises Pearson price target to 1,181 (1,051) pence - 'buy'

JP Morgan's very positive note on Monday had a price target of 1010. I think that's conservative. Looking for £15 myself.

RNS from Appolo (at 10:30)

Further to the announcements made by Apollo Global Management, Inc. and its subsidiaries ("Apollo"), on behalf of certain of its affiliated funds, and Pearson on 11 March 2022, Apollo notes that it has been unable to reach agreement with the board of Pearson as to the terms of an offer for the entire issued and to be issued share capital of Pearson.

Accordingly, Apollo confirms that it does not intend to make an offer for Pearson. This is a statement to which Rule 2.8 of the Code applies.

Pearson's reply ...

Pearson notes today's announcement from Apollo that it is no longer evaluating a possible cash offer for the Company and that it is consequently bound by the restrictions under Rule 2.8 of the City Code of Takeovers and Mergers.

The Board of Pearson confirms that, on 28 March 2022, it received a third proposal from Apollo regarding a possible cash offer for the entire issued and to be issued share capital of the Company at 870 pence per share (the "Proposal Price"). Under Apollo's proposal, eligible Pearson shareholders would also be entitled to receive the previously announced FY 2021 dividend of 14.2 pence per share which, when taken together with the Proposal Price, represents a total value of 884.2 pence per share (the "Third Proposal").

The Third Proposal followed two previous proposals from Apollo which were unanimously rejected by the Board of Pearson, as detailed in Pearson's 11 March 2022 announcement.

The Board of Pearson considered the Third Proposal, together with its financial and legal advisers, and concluded that it significantly undervalued the Company and its future prospects. Accordingly, the Board of Pearson unanimously rejected the Third Proposal.

share price fell about 10% on the news, but has since recovered somewhat - onwards and upwards ;-)

Its been a great day for Pearson and the UK.
We've seen off the asset strippers
the share price is rising.

institutional buys have driven the price of PSON up to 820p. If a bid comes in it could be as high as £10 a share. I am a STRONG believer in online education and I think the market is 10 years behind. This should be worth £20 a share. (I was in WEY education long before the bid came in)...
PSON is a giant in on-line education.
People are valuing (and the rest of the city) the FUTURE of learning MILES TOO LOW.

Education is the future. What price will we give it away?
