HP in takeover talks with Synstar Richard Wray Monday August 9, 2004 The Guardian IT services and software firm Synstar is today expected to admit it is in talks with Hewlett-Packard over a takeover which could value the Berkshire-based business at around £160m. Hewlett-Packard is looking to increase its European footprint with the deal and move further into the IT services space. Synstar, based in Bracknell, provides corporate customers with everything from basic software support to restoring entire IT networks through its disaster recovery centres. In June it reported half-year, pre-tax profits of £2.2m, down from £3.7m with sales of £103m up less than analysts had forecast. The company was upbeat about its prospects, however, having secured its largest ever contract in September. The seven-year maintenance deal with Fujitsu is worth £200m. Synstar's board is believed to be looking for HP to offer around 100p per share which would value the business at £160m. The shares, which were valued at more than 240p during the dotcom boom, closed at 78.25p on Friday. Synstar refused to comment. But talk over the weekend that computer games software Eidos is close to a takeover is understood to be somewhat premature. There was speculation that French computer games company Ubisoft is considering an offer for the creator of Tomb Raider's Lara Croft at 150p per share. The bid would value Eidos, which has run into difficulties after a string of profit warnings, at about £215m. Yves Guillemot, chairman of the French computer games company, has said in the past that Eidos is an "attractive and interesting company" but Eidos is understood to be assessing expressions of interest from several other potential bidders. US groups Electronic Arts, Activision and Microsoft are all rumoured to be interested. Infogrames Entertainment, which dropped out of talks with Eidos four year ago, is reportedly not considering an offer. ¬∑Internet Business Group is today expected to announce that Cornell Capital Partners has agreed to provide the AIM-listed e-commerce minnow with up to £500,000. The share-backed credit line will be used to invest in IBG's current business.

Great news but only a 20% premium given the chance of earnings growth as Fujitsu contract kicks in does sound a little on the low side ?

hahahahah, so this is where the successful businessman- thrice retired millionaire spends his Sunday mornings, mauTToo, you are a tragi-comic figure of the highest order- where is the wife and family you boast of, the fab. women, the sports cars, the world traveller?. Nothing but a pathetic wee man, sat in his attic, friendless, penniless,boasting via hundreds of aliases, and the saddest part accusing others of posting 24/7,when only you do. I really feel terribly sorry for you mauTToo,I honestly do, no emotion, [never cried] obviously never go beyond your PC, paranoid, never wrong in your twisted schizophrenic persona, your sort of illness deserves far more help from the state, I would seek help as soon as possible. Right that is my good deed for the day, off out now with the family, bloody hell its great to be normal, poor old mauTToo, poor sad lonely lost creature offski

Hewlett-Packard to buy £160m Synstar By Andrew Murray-Watson (Filed: 08/08/2004) S Telegraph Hewlett-Packard, the US computer group, is in talks to buy Synstar, the listed information technology services company, for about £160m as part of a plan to expand its European operations. The two sides are in detailed talks about the exact terms. The Synstar board is understood to be demanding that HP pays a premium at least 20 per cent above the current share price of 79p. An offer at 100p per share would value the company at £163m. The takeover, which is expected to be announced within the next fortnight, marks the latest step in HP's plans to become a service-led company. Steve Vaughan, the chief executive of Synstar who took over in 2001 when the share price stood at just above 50p, will make £1.4m from his options as part of the takeover. Synstar, which specialises in providing desktop management and business recovery systems, is a good fit for HP, which has more than $10bn (£5.5bn) in cash and is known to be hunting for acquisitions in the UK and Europe. Synstar is likely to be merged into HP's technology solutions group, which offers software, hardware and services packages for corporate clients. The division accounts for 40 per cent of HP's revenues, which hit a record $73.1bn in the last financial year. Synstar, which was spun out of the IT department of Granada in a management buyout, beat analysts' expectations in June when it posted interim pre-tax profits of £2.2m.

I agree and would propose that this is just a precursor to one of more contract win announcements, once finalised and secure. It isn't really insider dealing, it is just the rational asumption that if any of the pipeline contracts come to fruition then the value of the Co. will rise and the shares will represent an even better investment. There is always bid speculation as well. IMHO of course!

They wouldn't have changed broker if the last lot were doing the business and getting the Syn story out to clients - would they? Probable Syn management were disappointed with stock price performance given the turn around they have achieved. This recent rally may not be temporary but the start of the recovery.

Recent rises are clearly down to the new broker recommending it to clients and todays announcment. Question is how long will this rally last on the back of a broker change or is there more to it?

Yes, ticked up on what looked like, on the face of it, a large sell day. Large blocks of shares may be changing hands so watch for news. Certainly got it wrong when I sold on the last results!

Nice to see a bit of blue on the old monitor screen and even more significant when for Synstar! I feel a bit peeved in personally just seeing the recent strong press comments and speculation as a bit more of the same old stuff and therefore missed the opportunity to top up at below 70p.
