When will pay a dividend? It seems to have rested back to where it was before the buy offer!

Back on the dividend list, nominally. NSF might need to top up its paper offer.

The Provvy board can protest all they like, it's the shareholders who have the power to say yes or no to NSF or any other white knight. They should be careful what they wish for.

Woodford sold shares in NSF and PFG. It is the holding in NSF that has fallen below 50%. The combined holding of Woodford, Invesco and Marathon in PFG is still at 51.9%

In the times this morning: Shareholders backing a bid for Provident Financial from its rival Non-Standard Finance have fallen below 50 per cent after Neil Woodford cut his holding in Provident. Woodford Investment Management disclosed to the stock exchange yesterday that it had sold 1.5 million shares in Provident. The sale slightly reduces the percentage of shareholdings backing NSF’s hostile bid from 50 per cent to 49.41 per cent. Meanwhile, Schroders has increased its shareholding in Provident from 12.36 per cent to 13.75 per cent. John Cronin, analyst at Goodbody, said Schroders’ decision to increase its holding in Provident was “interesting”. “We think this is likely to be a message that Schroders supports NSF’s firm offer,” Mr Cronin said.

An aggressive move to take over the country's leading sub-prime lender Provident Financial has been frozen by the competition watchdog as it considers an investigation into the move. The Competition and Markets Authority has issued an indefinite 'enforcement order' which demands that Non-Standard Finances makes no further move to merge with Provident. Maybe one of the Provvy's directors knows someone on the competition authority.

Sorry Invictus "PFG" don't get to choose the take out price. The shareholders do. And according to NSF it's all done and dusted. IF a rival bidder can be teased out then the price could be driven up. Try to be too greedy and NSF will simply walk away and the PFG share price will drop like a stone. It isn't exactly clear what the NSF shareholders get out of this, so the biggest hurdle might be getting them to agree to the deal at the current offer price.

Now 50p or so ahead of the NSF scrip offer value. A rather feeble statement this morning. Fortunately JvK to the rescue.... or a white knight perhaps... or whatever colour is pc these days.

I was amused that the PFG board accuse the NSF board of being "opportunistic". Is that not what decent management should be doing?

Delaying results does allow for reporting more on the current situation. Showing further improvement?

dex - if they can tease out another bidder, they will open the books to that bidder, who will be able to see the numbers before everyone else. They'd have to give NSF equal access, but it might set off an auction. It's desperate, but probably all they have in their locker, given Woodford and Invesco's holdings.

"Trading in the business for 2018 was as outlined in the trading update on 15 January 2019. Current trading continues in line with our expectations. However, in light of the current circumstances the Board believes it is appropriate to delay the announcement of its full-year 2018 results to 13 March 2019...…. …..because they are terrible and to announce them now would add credence to NSF's suggestion that the PFG management are inept" ? I can't think of any other reason for not releasing the results as per schedule.
