The pound dropping against the dollar is the only reason profits collapsed, sales continue to rise. There has been a slight recovery but not enough to get back the margin from a few years ago. I sold out a few months ago, at these levels, and eith loss making holdings, it's hard to know where it will go in 6 months.

Seriously - how can any of us value SPD when there are all these opaque positions in other business. Mostly people seem to be backing on blind faith as Mike has come good before. It all seems a bit similar to the Tesco situation a few years back when people thought they were rock solid and were incapable of making a loss. Then came a fraud and suddenly people saw a organisation that had become enormous and was borrowing ever and ever more to make less and less profit. A few year ago SPD was a lean machine making excellent profits. Now it is a big sprawling company making less profits. Go figure.

What bid?Mandatory at 30% but put option converted will still only be 21.2%...unless I'm mistaken.

Make a bid would cover up his mistake and DEBS is looking very cheap right now.

DD - it's just there are a lot of armchair experts on these boards and I try to take their advice with a pinch of salt. Like you I tend to get a lot of my information from the internet and they say that a PUT is similar to a short except on a PUT you have limited liability and both require the physical accumulation of shares when exercised (and GS will undoubtedly exercise them). I've never read that you can settle in cash. But if you have read this somewhere I would appreciate that link.Regards Termy.

After you're childish outburst......"I'm sure you're right though".Unbelievable!.DDps didn't say an idiot would value this over £2.70, just that is what I think it was worth (still do) and you're beloved MA only thought it was worth £2.99999..........share buybacks zero!.

For the last time:If Debenhams' share price falls significantly, Sports Direct would either be forced to become a significant shareholder – at a loss – or pay the party on the other side of the option in cash. If the share price rises, the buyer would probably not exercise the option and Sports Direct would not end up with the shares.It's the former IMO - significant shareholder at a loss.Give up, it's like pulling teeth.DD

He may well argue it's not gambling but hedging

Well in all the descriptions of a put I've never heard about being able to accept a cash alternative but then I've never heard you can't.

My understanding is that it's one or the other, cash or shares but not both......but we (the royal we) are not privy to such details.

I think the whole idea was about gaining control over the shares without having to fund their purchase ie leverage. So I am thinking if the trade went against him it would be logical to assume he would take the loss in cash. Or roll the trade over!!! Grant Thorton are the accountants, the same people that looked after BHS.

I totally agree, he should not be using shareholder funds for gambling. I would have thought at some point he needs to disclose how much he paid for the shares given it should appear on the accounts. I must say i am confused over his put options. Given he is supposedly committed to acquiring 10% of Debenhams, and given 4 of his options have expired already, I would have expected debs price to move up on the purchases. If anything they have come down. 10% is a lot of stock to buy in a 4 week period. Do the shares have to be acquired straight away or indeed can he just take a cash loss and leave the shares?

Terminated he couldn't bet against a company he had concessions in could he??? Could you really use shareholder funds to bet against companies??? This share is starting to smell and whiff like an old jockstrap.

DD - I was under the impression he took it out with GS but if he issued them then I have misunderstood.

I saw in a SEC filing yesterday that SPD are now over 30% in The Finish Line (FINL). Interesting that they can keep accumulating at low prices.
