Just had another look at the interims. They were truly awful. Balance sheet is insolvent. If you were cynical, you would say it was convenient to announce the possible bid to keep the share price up. They do need a very good Autumn and Xmas trading period. This is not investible to me given the balance sheet. Wonder if Bloomsbury Publishing were interested?

I suspect that some party thought this might be an opportunity to snap this up, but when they looked further at the longer-term prospects, felt it wasn't worth the risk. With the debt pile, one bad Xmas and they're in a bit of a pickle!

Looks to me like they need to have a good H2 to avoid covenant problems. All hands to the pumps. Looks problematic to me.

Going back to the previous announced results - this business is in trouble, kitchen sinking 2016 did not work and the mystery bidder is not really interested - but they do not mention due-diligence , perhaps this was refused - maybe they did not want him seeing the books - and so he walks away.....

Yes all too convenient and the reasons are pretty lame.

IMO the insiders always knew the bid was a non starter.

Agreed battlebus - it is also too easy for people to make fraud bids. An ex employee claiming to have the support of bankers for example. Not saying that is the case here, but bidderz should be made public after pulling out if not before

One downside of not being a UK listed as opposed to Delaware means there was no need to declare who made the approach, if it comes to nought we may never know..

Looks like the market doesnt believe Leaver Bids at a time of weakness - a company with an accounting screw up, too much debt and underperforming sales... does not typically see a fantastic bid. Still, this could be a rival taking its chance to grab this, as opposed to quarto being 'rescued'? When Leaver said the terms looked positive - he maybe meant for himself securing a chunky payment?

"How can it be low given this mornings statement" Because the rest of the statement shows a company with high debt that will be in a pickle if xmas trading isnt good

Seems to me quite an interesting risk/reward situation here. Shareholders are reducing or exiting because the preliminary approach and results provide a bit of liquidity in a share that it usually very illiquid. Unfortunately the debt is quite high, but otherwise there are things to like about this company. Very good CEO. Useful niche in illustrated books. Global footprint. Useful insti. investors like Herald and Liontrust. If the bid is at £2.50 and you can buy at £1.50 that would be a nice turn. Of course if the bid fizzles you're left with a holding that's really difficult to sell.

Only a small holding from years back held mainly for the dividend but I wouldn't add on today's results.

God knows, but trading this morning doesn't inspire confidence. I do not have a position.

Heavily offered, someone definitely doesn't think the bid will happen or that the price will be low.

battlebus28 Aug '17 - 07:21 - 208 of 210 Results not good and interim dividend cancelled but let's hope the offer is around £4/5 and we're all happy. No chance. It will be closer to £2-£2.50.

Strange to speak of the bid as attractive before negotiations, suitor must be know by co? 🤔
