This is a little news. Bigger stuff going on with Hubwoo integration imho and in US no doubt. POBL, although good, is not a needle moving piece of business now. Would have been a few years back.

SEH United Hoteliers Group Selects Perfect Commerce, a PROACTIS Company, for Major Online Marketplace Project 14/03/2018 3:59pm Business Wire Proactis (LSE:PHD) Intraday Stock Chart Today : Wednesday 14 March 2018 Click Here for more Proactis Charts. SEH to improve purchasing strategy with new cloud-based services Perfect Commerce, a PROACTIS company and global Spend Control and eProcurement provider, today announced that it has been selected by SEH United Hoteliers (SEH) to deploy its cloud-based eProcurement platform in Europe. The project will enable SEH Group’s purchasing organisation to offer new online services to its hoteliers, while increasing the efficiency of its purchasing strategy. The group decided to create a marketplace to allow all hotel owners, both within and outside the group, to make more intelligent purchases with increased transparency. This emphasises the group’s loyalty to independent hoteliers. Perfect Commerce was chosen due to its experience with similar projects, international scope and ease of use. The SEH team was particularly drawn to the user-friendly and intuitive eProcurement and Catalogue Management solutions: “With Perfect Commerce, SEH will be able to guide its members towards a new stage of digital transformation by offering an online service for all purchases on a digital platform,” says David Esseryk, Chief Digital and Marketing Officer, SEH United Hoteliers. “Implementing the purchasing marketplace will better serve our hoteliers and provide a 100% online service with a single-order basket,” added Elisabeth Meulle, Head of the Group Purchasing Organisation. The new service will be available to all hotel owners from Spring 2018 and will be rapidly deployed. The Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model and supplier recruitment services, exclusively offered by Perfect Commerce, are key factors in fast and efficient implementation. “We are proud of the trust SEH has placed in us,” stated Martial Gerardin, Managing Director, Europe for Perfect Commerce. “It is a recognition of our experience and the excellence of our solutions.”

I might have it wrong. What if remaining listed in Paris, with minority holding (possibly French), makes it more Brexit anti-UK action resilient or helps in winning business in the EU?

Yes, pragmatic batelur. I just like the idea of control and optimising cost of listing and running. Annoying situation. I might be tempted to hold if I was in Hubwoo as the value should rise. Last 20c offer was via a 3rd party valuation. Chance of picking up 9.55M shares on normal open market is remote. Trading volumes have been very low until the most recent activity.

I tried buying Hubwoo before Christmas but couldn't get them at a price that made sense. Turned out that was right given the €0.20c PHD later offered. Interesting to see what happens to the Hubwoo price as volume will probably go back to sleep and there's probably 11% that won't sell for love nor money. Much cleaner if PHD achieved > 95%. I guess they've done the maths on savings from delisting vs cost of acquiring another 7% or so at > €0.20. About another 9.55M shares. Anyone know what French listing and reporting costs are?

It's never that simple in France. Tim Sykes comments are upbeat but I don't think it is so positive. They need to take more Hubwoo stock off the market to force change. The way the board is mentioned I wonder if the last 11% are held by the Hubwoo board and they are blocking? France does not appear as transparent as UK. Please, Proactis, as a majority holder of Hubwoo can you publish the profile of the holders of the last 11% of Hubwoo in next set of results? Especially if they are on the Hubwoo board. It would be handy to know what's next as the current status quo might limit change that would help efficient and ultimately holders of PHD.

@eagle-eye Looks like a 95% threshold applies in France. Google "France Takeover Guide". Its a useful document and its in English. I can't seem to copy the link. In South Africa, we use 90%. I think there is also a mandatory cooling off period until a second attempt at the minorities can be made. Maintaining the listing is certainly suboptimal in terms of avoidable listing fees and boards costs etc.

bateleur, I'm not familiar with the 90% squeeze-out threshold, but am led to believe that Proactis will continue to explore all possible options. I would have thought financial savings would be considerable by cutting out listing costs and duplicated management. Unfortunately in France it isn't quite that simple.

@eagle-eye Does a 90% squeeze-out threshold not apply? I seem to recall reference being made to a squeeze-out. That said, 90% has not been achieved, so there is no basis to enforce a delisting on minorities. In due course, Proactis will probably have another go.

New press release: Https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20180308005514/en/Spend-Compliance-Act-Mitigate-Excess-Cost-Risk "Spend Compliance: Act Now to Mitigate Excess Cost, Risk & Fraud, Advises PROACTIS Uncontrolled spending is leaving organisations exposed to excess cost, risk and fraud. March 08, 2018 05:41 AM Eastern Standard Time WETHERBY, England--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Organisations are losing billions in annual profits due to the inability to organise and analyse spend data and implement best practices to capture these lost savings. Complex spend management rules and standards are difficult to enforce, and often there is limited involvement of the necessary stakeholders to make it happen. PROACTIS advises organisations to take action. To establish a clear strategy for spend compliance that ensures all organisation-wide purchases are in line with corporate policies, established budgets and negotiated supplier agreements to avoid costly and uncontrolled off-contract purchases. Simon Dadswell, EVP Group Marketing at PROACTIS, said: “Organisations should be taking note of where cost savings are not fully being realised and putting in place compliance management programs to force adherence to spend guidelines. After all, improved spend compliance translates directly to the bottom line by reducing operating cost and increasing profitability.” Spend management requires a comprehensive compliance process that helps organisations to obtain better visibility and control of spend; to determine the appropriate structure and time to enforce compliance; to strengthen processes and establish best practices to support controls; and to involve all ‘proper’ stakeholders at all key stages. This approach is critical to an organisation’s financial health and performance. It requires the ability to: • Monitor enterprise spending at a consolidated level, and down to line item, across departments, divisions, geographies and categories to ensure conformity with preferred suppliers, negotiated supplier terms and volume discounts. • Communicate negotiated sourcing parameters to all stakeholders, reducing process time lags and the tendency to resort to maverick buying when purchasing goods and services. • Reduce manual processing of orders that account for a large amount of cost, and that can leave the company exposed to unexpected liability. • Have visibility of available substitute goods and services and take advantage of opportunities that may exist to consolidate supply. "With the proper support tools, effective compliance management is in fact very practical,” continued Simon. “And the good news is that the tools needed are the same tools that help you to manage your procure-to-pay process – purchase-to-pay, AP automation, electronic sourcing, supplier communications and centralised contract management.”

Following today's RNS, I've contacted the company to enquire why as 88% shareholder, Hubwoo isn't now being de-listed. Apparently French authorities do not allow de-listing 'by simple company choice'. It's all a bit complicated, so I guess for now it's watch this space.

About €2.61M used to buy-in more Hubwoo stock. Another 9.56% under PHD control. 11.49% remains with other holders, 88.51% with PHD. Would like to know the profile of the holders of the minority share. Would like to have seen them mop-up more. Perhaps that can be done gradually on the open market over time but no doubt at > €0.20 per share.
