Agreed, can`t see any massive bid 120 is about right.

yep, bought in to get the sale through at a good price. All positive - I can see £1.20 take out price - hard to see much more.

Doubt it, they've already indicated the process is underway with interested parties and somebody will be very pleased with the US connects in the climate.

Just been drafted in to help wrap up a sale by the looks of it - which I would suggest means that there's enough interest to merit the appointment and the wheels are in motion

That is actually a genius idea Lucyp00p. Up till now I have held all my shares in an ISA - if I were to follow your example, would that loss only be offsettable against CGT or would it be offsettable as a loss against general tax? I think the answer is the former but thought I should really check as this could wipe out my entire tax bill...

This looks to be a decent small sized target given its US presence and the regulatory climate change expected there.It's also got to be sold soon as the key management aren't even going to be there come January! Obviously they would extend to oversee the process but surely this goes quickly. What I can't get a handle on is price

The 29 pps payout is good and I do not see it as affecting the eventual purchase of SPO. Yes the share price will go down if the sale is not completed before the 24th Nov.; it also makes SPO much cheaper for a number of other possible bidders. More bidders is good! Let us not forget they will want access and to get control of the current and possible future licences in the hands of Sportech plc with the considerable revenue stream under development. It may slow the sale down after the 24th November, so personally I will want to take the div and then take my chances on the sale. As ever regards, VZ

The bet here is surely that a sale process winds into gear quickly and gives a bump

£5k divi suggests a holding of around 17,000 if the price falls back by the 29p that`s a similar capital amount of loss of £5k, bit of a risk to show a loss-CGT is not huge these days

So I'm loading up now. Take my £5k tax free divi and then sell XD to book a capital loss.

Wow.Sooner than expected. More than expected.The share price may fall by around 29p on XD date Thursday 23 November.If SPO is in talks with prospective buyers then the cash payout is possibly a way to make an acquisition easier.

Nice special dividend - mine in an ISA or all good gravy Always good to get a few extra quid for investment elsewhere in the sector. Something big is going to pop soon with Stars , GVC and Ptec at the forefront of the action.

Stephen you are hilarious life must be tiresome being so negative on everything! Time to go to the bank in 4 hours and clog up the queue for the office workers who have 15 mins 🤣

That's true of course. But nonetheless it's a good payout for anybody who already holds and if they get a sale away then it could be a tidy few weeks.

alternatively, that 29p might represent most of the incentive to buy. avoid.

That's a cracking payout and who knows with a decent sale might well be a great result here

Interesting events over at NYX in Canada and USA.SPO still holds 1% of NYX (SPOs holding was originally 4%).SPO also has a contract payment with NYX based on sales of its jointly developed leading software in States outside New Jersey. However, such sales require new Gaming regulation to be approved in those States.A few days ago Scientific Gaming made a full offer for NYX to the value of USD 631 million.This values SPO's holding at USD 6.3mSPO acquired Sportech Racing from SG a few years back. After which SG held 10% of SPO and two seats on the SPO Board.Along came William Hill yesterday to blackmail Scientific Gaming with demands, otherwise WH will block SG's acquisition of NYX.WH will own 31% of NYX after its convertibles are converted into ordinary shares so that it can vote against (or for) the takeover.Today NYX filed a claim against WH - full text can be read on the NYX ticker."NYX also announced that it has filed an action in the Chancery Division of the Superior Court of New Jersey, Atlantic County against William Hill Steeplechase Limited and William Hill Plc (together, "William Hill") and certain of William Hill's officers and directors.  NYX alleges that its shareholder William Hill has engaged in wrongful conduct in violation of the New Jersey Antitrust Act in attempting to block the Acquisition, which will bring great benefits to the nascent regulated sports betting industry. The complaint seeks injunctive relief, treble damages and attorney's fees for violations of the New Jersey Antitrust Act, and also alleges tortious interference with economic advantage, and tortious interference with contract, and seeks punitive damages. "

Nod, thanks. I dare say you are right and of course we do need a sense humour with this lot over the years. as ever regards VZ

VZ, I suppose SPO has made this little statement to apply pressure on interested parties. 'If you don't offer a good price, and soon, then we are going to give away a chunk of our cash to shareholders.'

If SPO return cash to existing share holders what effect will it have on the buy out price? as ever regards VZ
