redtom1: Value of the Takeda offer a few minutes ago, based on live fx rates, was 4,659p made up of 2,388p in cash & 2,271p in shares. With current share price of 4,530p the current Shire share price would need to rise by 2.85% to match. From the original offer valued at 4901p, we've lost 640p in value due to fall in value of Takeda shares but gained 399p because of favourable fx movements on both the cash and share elements. Takeda share price (Yen) = 3840 £:$ = 1.2699 £:Yen = 141.876

redtom1: I'm no longer in this as a sold first thing yesterday before the panic set it. Very little premium now because of a big fall in Takeda overnight. Not quite sure what caused that given the Japanese market was up. Good luck to any remaining holders. Value of the Takeda offer a few minutes ago, based on live fx rates, was 4,647p made up of 2,379p in cash & 2,268p in shares. With current share price of 4,540p the current Shire share price would need to rise by 2.36% to match. From the original offer valued at 4901p, we've lost 603p in value due to fall in value of Takeda shares but gained 349p because of favourable fx movements on both the cash and share elements. Takeda share price (Yen) = 3889 £:$ = 1.27484 £:Yen = 143.858

redtom1: Hi, in simple terms, Takeda (a Japanese Co) has made an offer to buy the whole of Shire plc. The deal has yet to be voted on by both sets of shareholders and these votes will be at end of year or early next year. Deal is likely to conclude before HY 2019. You can find out more from both Shire & Takeda websites. The offer is $30.33 cash and 0.839 of a Takeda share for each shire share. so the value (in GBP) is always moving because of Takeda share price movements and the £:$ and £:Y exchange rates. Updated value: Value of the Takeda offer a few minutes ago, based on live fx rates, was 5,053p made up of 2,354p in cash & 2,699p in shares. With current share price of 4,424p the current Shire share price would need to rise by 14.22% to match. From the original offer valued at 4901p, we've lost 206p in value due to fall in value of Takeda shares but gained 358p because of favourable fx movements on both the cash and share elements. Takeda share price (Yen) = 4574 £:$ = 1.28836 £:Yen = 142.195

redtom1: Dealy, I don't think that is a correct interpretation. There has been quite a lot in the press about Takeda shareholders that don't want to be part of the deal selling their shares. This naturally creates a downward price movement. The articles have gone on to say that existing Takeda shareholders are more likely to vote yes, hence why they are still Takeda shareholders. The markets are nervous of the financial risk/burden that Takeda is taking on so no surprise that the share price is coming under pressure. But let's think about the logic here. The share price was around 5500 at time deal first muted in public. Now around 4500. If the deal was more likely than not to happen, would it still be 20% down on the pre deal price? I don't think so. The markets may be nervous about the deal but they are still pricing Takeda as though it is likely to happen. Weber needs to do a great selling job to the Takeda shareholders about the 'jam tomorrow' scenario but he has 6 months to do so. As we currently stand, the Takeda share price is indicating a more likely than not acceptance. Over time more and more of the dissenting shareholders will sell up making the vote even more likely. There are a lot of things that could happen to scupper this deal and there is a lot of time for these to happen, but as we stand today the Takeda share price still implies a deal is on. Drop below 4200ish, we may have a problem but at current level we are OK.
