Miata, yes i fully understand what you are saying, but the debt keeps growing as does the interest to pay on the debt, why are they not interested in paying dowwn the debt, it looks like a ponzi scheme to me.

It seems like the dividend is getting in the way of the valuation/bid. 2079.5p is the offer.

MIATA I fully understand what you say about debt, but I am if the opinion that you cannot increase it indefinately. At present utility companies are able to borrow at relatively low rates. They have a job to do, which is to improve the quality of their business. However, customers are reluctant to continue with ever increasing bills. Interest rates will start tpo rise eventually. Excessive debt levels will impact on credit ratings. Regulatory bodies can contro;l earnings potential. We have seen many bubbles burst in the past.

You would not be bankrupt just because your debts were more than your worth, only if you had no means of earning enough to ultimately repay your debts. SVT has a guaranteed inflation-linked earnings stream.

Canadian bidders buoyed by Severn Trent's rising debt | This is Money www.thisismoney.co.uk/.../Canadian-bidders-buoyed-Severn-Trents-rising-... So debt is meaningless when you have massive cash flow from 'captive' customers? -------- Now waiting to see why DVW's figures are later than the others. z

Exactly. Severn Trent, the water giant which this month rejected a Canadian and Kuwaiti takeover approach, today told investors it's worth well over £7 billion - nearly £1 billion more than the price thought to have been offered by the foreign bidders. The utility, which keeps the taps running in 7.7 million British homes, was approached earlier this month with a bid said to be worth just under £20 a share, or £4.7 billion, from Canada's Borealis, the Kuwait Investment Authority and the Universities Superannuation Scheme, a UK pension fund. Severn Trent rejected that bid, saying it "completely fails to recognise the existing and potential value" of the water firm, and today pointed out its regulated capital value - the figure that the industry regulator Ofwat uses to work out the worth of the utility - was up 4% from £7.1 billion in 2010 to £7.4 billion this year. Severn Trent's departing chief executive Tony Wray also highlighted that it was set to hit £8 billion by the end of the current regulatory cycle, in 2015.

Trader Just another thought - They will not want to mount a hostile bid, so they may be haggling over the price as I type. red

What happens to the Net Debt as shown in Financials above and the fact that there is -net cash per share. I have shares in the smaller water company DVW and also UU. Would anyone consider taking out DVW which has a larger minus figure for cash per share? Is the cash flow from existing customer bases so strong that gearing, debt and minus cash figures are meaningless? SVT's Net Debt is much bigger than their Market Cap., DVW's is slightly bigger.

Trader There is no rush. They have until 5.00pm on 11 June, as you say. If they have any sense they will be doing thorough due dilligence. The only fly in the ointment is the next regulatory review, but I preume that they took a view when they revealed their hand anyway. Who knows how much information they may or may not, have on that score. If you took back to the takeover of Northumbrian it seemed to rumble on forever, but went through in the end. I bought back 50% of my recent sale at £20.27+bits. It seems like a reasonable risk to me. red

Well xd is 21 June, so when would you expect a move? (OFFER DEADLINE 5.00 pm on 11 June 2013 ). They don't have to pay us a dividend if a deal is done ahead of 21st! Are you saying that the Consortium would scoop all the cash?

Purely speculation, but £21 plus the current dividend would not be out of court for the purchaser and might just do the trick. They can't do much about the dividend now. red

Yes. So am I. Apparently fell slightly short of analysts expectations! I imagine the bidder has his accounts team crawling all over this to decide where to pitch a final bid for the company. Watch.this space...

CAZENOVE The consortium's willingness to table even a conditional bid in the face of regulatory uncertainty may reflect the high level of demand for low risk, inflation protected assets. We see this as positive for the other UK listed water companies, United Utilities (UU/ LN) and Pennon (PNN LN), which are trading at a 13.6% and 14.2% premium to March 14 RAV respectively compared to SVT on a 27.7% premium to RAV.
