I don't understand the point of many of these transactions. Blackrocks's position remains the same each time. It transfers In and Out the extract same number of share. It seems they have to report these net zero transactions each time.I noticed Trevor Hemings reduced last week, selling 160k at 80p to take him to below 2.5%So, he's not expecting much more from a sale.We are in the last half of January. The finish line is in sight :)

I agree that it's not certain and likely to take a while although we should expect an update from SPO in any event. The sooner the better.

I would not be surprised if the target date of end-January is missed. This is not a simple business to sell due to the US regulatory approval required. There may buyers who would pay more for those US licenses but don't know if they would get US approval. It's like selling a house to conditional buyers. It can be a very long process. SPO is much bigger and more complex than a house.

End of January 2018 for tabled bids in the last update so one would hope for some indication of progress shortly

In the 6 November RNS I spotted that SPO had in fact sold the remainder of its NYX shares after the results. We lost a couple of mill by selling just before the offer for NYX came along. Ah well. "the Group has disposed of its shares in NYX Gaming Group realising a further GBP2.3m of cash as against a carrying value of GBP1.3m."

In its 6 November trading update, SPO set a target date of end January. "UPDATE ON STRATEGIC REVIEWThe Board has set up an internal task force to consider all options available to strengthen the Group, assess numerous innovative opportunities for further growth, and ultimately deliver a Group that is capable of delivering sustainable returns or a significant capital return to shareholders.Formal Sale ProcessFollowing preliminary approaches to acquire the Company, Sportech initiated a Formal Sale Process on 19 October 2017, although naturally there can be no certainty that an offer will be made.The Company has engaged with interested parties, has executed several non-disclosure agreements and will be providing selected parties with access to due diligence information and management in the coming weeks. This initial round of discussions is expected to conclude by the end of this year, with a timetable for seeking offers by the end of January 2018. The Board will update shareholders further at the appropriate time.Parties with an interest in making a proposal should contact Canaccord Genuity through the contact details set out at the end of this announcement.

If there was only one interested party it would be over more quickly. On 19 October, when announcing the sale process, SPO wrote: "four of which have made preliminary approaches to acquire the Company."To get a good price at auction you need at least two keen bidders.

When does this sale process conclude? We could do with some news and a takeover here now! I don’t like this mapped out route, good takeovers for shareholders generally come as a surprise!

Many thanks for the info, looks like some potentially useful additional incomings could come along in due course

On Brexit I heard an EU minister saying that EU laws would apply to Britain during a two year transition, including the European Court of Justice. If Littlewoods took its Vat claim to the ECJ it would likely win before Brexit completes in three years time.I got the impression from the UK Supreme Court that EU courts would award compound interest.

As well as the cash and NYX shares, there was a deferred consideration potentially payable to SPO up to May 2020 as follows:" The deferred consideration shall be payable to Sportech in tranches of CAD$1 million for each non-New Jersey customer acquired by SNG for a total of 3 such customers signed over the next 5 years."With the backing of Scientific Games there may be a greater chance of NYX winning contracts outside New Jersey.

Got the dividend yesterday so that's all ok. Would like some news on bids etc but they have indicated that January is the sharp end of the process.Useful to have the holding in NYX - who knows they may chose to distribute that cash too albeit a somewhat lesser sum!

It was a fortunate time for a sale of NYX, doubling the value of SPOs holding from three months ago.
