The market has not fully appreciated the financial death wish the CEO of this company seems to have, and he certainly has not learned the lessons of RBS (RBS) / ABN Amro etc. Shorted with a price target of £4.50 in the next 3 months. Easy money.

lol Beardmore. The thing that really put me off and made me sell was his McKinsey background. Didn't even get as far as the French bit. Noticed that the man in charge of integration is ex-consultant (McKinsey?) too and with little experience. I'll be back in with you!

Uppompeii is right - AVIVA has been wrecked by incompetent management. Now it seems to be PRU's turn. How anyone ever thought that Tidjane Thiam is an asset is beyond me. He is French-speaking, French-thinking and French-trained - I regret that I can see nothing other than arrogance on his face. Like most French managers he believes in ""Grands Projets"" and this plan to 'transform' a British company is enormous - in fact so big, he can't handle it. He skipped away from his country just as it fell to a coup and then brought his magic(!!) touch to AVIVA. The sooner he leaves the PRU alone the better. I'll be 'long' PRU on the day of his resignation.

INVESTOR CALLS FOR THE HEAD OF PRU CHIEF The managing director of Neptune Investment Management and Prudential shareholder Robin Geffen has begun a campaign to oust the insurer's chief executive Tidjane Thiam from his post. Geffen is displeased with Thiam's bungled attempts to acquire the Asian subsidiary of U.S. insurer AIG and any subsequent implications for Prudential's UK business. He is creating the "Prudential Action Group", which hopes to gain the 10 percent of support amongst investors necessary for a special resolution of no confidence in Thiam at a May 27 meeting.

See in the FT earlier this week that this shambolic rights issue was a 1 for 4 offer at 140p, or a 40% discount to an ex-rights price of 230p. Just how many years will it take to get back the original shareholder value that has been trashed. Just how can the Board approve such a stupid deal?! Buffet has said that you can't buy expensive companies using cheap paper without hurting shareholders and he is correct!

The organisation of this transaction is all over the place - how come the FSA had to make a last minute intervention? Shambles

How is this bullish? They have just come out and said they are 100% committed to the deal. Thus denying rumours of PRU pulling out of the deal. They will complete as according to the timescales they initially set out.. This will get hammered today...

Did anyone learn a lesson from RBS when they bought ABN AMRO or has Fred Goodwin joined the Pru board? If its such a great deal then why are AIG selling? AIG want to bolster their balance sheet by getting rid of a brick. In times of uncertainty stick to what you know best rather than pander to the whims of an attention seeking CEO who wants to live in Hong Kong.

This is a disastrous move by the PRU in my opinion. What's wrong with their existing business...hasn't it served them well for a few hundred years?

From The Sunday Times May 2, 2010 http://tinyurl.com/2bq62nq Pru in shock exit from UK and US Prudential is working on radical plans to sell off its British and American businesses in a move that would raise more than Pounds 10billion.

WHOOMPH!! I nearly jumped out of my skin. Had the normally adroit - albeit three-legged - cat knocked something over? Had the gas boiler exploded and taken half the house with it? Had the North Koreans decided to get in their nuclear retaliation in first? ...er no. The cause of the crash was a mighty package shoved through the letterbox and thumping to the floor. ..Inside was the mighty Prudential Annual Report - all 356 pages of it. It weighed in at an incredible two and three quarter pounds (that's 200 kilograms or - I guess - about five tonnes). No wonder the postmen want a pay rise . The report told me it was printed on 50% "post-consumer waste" - whatever that means.....Well - it's now on the way back where it came from - to the recycling plant - and I'm going underweight in PRU - pronto.
