To put the £200m per year saving into context, Sky's operating profit was £573m in the latest half year (to 31 Dec 17). The expectation was that they would have to spend £200m a year more not less so the outcome is hugely significant. Don't forget the Disney bid for 21st Century Fox (which includes their stake in Sky) implies a premium. Sky's business continues to perform well across the UK and Europe. Its not difficult to argue that circumstances have changed and that the bid price should be higher. I would hope that Sky shareholders will not accept £10.75 and that the larger, more influential holders, will be demanding £13 or so.

That's a very pleasant start to the day. £10.95 isn't too much over the offer but any higher and we're going to have a hard decision to take.

Yep, basically they are getting a similar deal but saving nearly £200m on the price. As the number of games is increasing a tad it should give them more advertising revenue if not add to subscription revenue.

The market now expects a higher offer price. Was to be expected given recent stake building and lower price negotiated (16% reduction) for Premier League rights renewal until 2022.

Ball Deap, You're a broken record repeating the same thing over and over again. Here you were telling us to sell when the share price was 920p back in November: Https://uk.advfn.com/cmn/fbb/thread.php3?id=33006379&from=593 If you keep saying "sell sell sell" then one day you might be right. But with a takeover around the corner at £10.75 and Elliott buying a position from which to lobby for a higher price, now is not the right time. JakNife

I’m quite surprised how much the share price has come off in the past couple of days. Does the broad market sell off affect the Sky price that much? The £10.75 bid is still on the table, with a 13p payment going xd end of March, makes for an total of £10.88. With the deal ‘expected̵7; to complete by June this year the time premium is getting near negligible levels, so last weeks’ dealing around the £10.60 - £10.65 level seems fair to me. Seeing the price down to £10.40 this morning was strange, maybe the markets know something I don’t?

Don't forget the declared dividend! That needs to be added to offer price.

If you could provide some objective evidence to back that up Ball Deap then I would think about selling. But given that there's a takeover bid out there at £10.75 and an activist lobbying for a higher price I need something other than random superlatives to change my mind.

This is so over valued it’s a crime literally!!! This is as I’ve said before so over due a fall. Just tread carefully long traders.

Yes, I know how it works and realise the data means very little, Jak. In my mind, every deal must have a Buy AND a Sell, so the figures should (roughly) match up. Not 450,00 buys to 3.5m sells!

It means that SKY is a SETS stock where anyone can load up a purchase by either hitting the offer price or alternatively sitting on the bid. Buy sell data is generally useless because the assumption that a deal below the mid is a sale whereas one above is a purchase is flawed on many many levels.

Sells outnumbering buys by about 5 to 1. Not sure how that works, or what it means?

NEWS!!!!Elliott Management Discloses Stake in SkySource: Dow Jones NewsBy Stu Woo LONDON -- Hedge fund Elliott Management Corp. disclosed in a regulatory filing Friday that it had taken a 1.09% stake in Sky PLC, which could further complicate 21st Century Fox Inc.'s $16.6 billion effort to consolidate ownership of the British pay-TV giant.Elliott, founded by Paul Singer, is known for its activist campaigns against giant companies, and for getting involved in deals and holding them up to get the price bumped. It was unclear whether the fund was taking an active or passive position in Sky.An Elliott spokeswoman and Sky spokesman didn't immediately return requests for comment Friday night. A Fox spokesman declined to comment.
