big yankee dealer: Times Business News "Commentary Column" yesterday: Tesco ignores bump on Booker road Alistair Osborne Recommended takeovers can be dull. So full marks to the hedgies for trying to keep things interesting. They’ve invented “bumpitrage221; — a delightful game designed to wind up chief executives everywhere just when they are on the brink of completing their big deal. It’s a simple jape: jump on the target company’s register and then, in the run-up to the investor vote, threaten to bring the whole thing down unless there’s a bump in the takeover price. Make enough noise to get other investors onside and you might even pull it off without actually owning any shares — just contracts for difference. It has become an Elliott forte. Paul Singer’s hedge fund has a CV full of bumps: forcing Anheuser-Busch Inbev into extra froth for SAB Miller, pushing Lone Star to up its offer for Quintain and getting more fuel out of ENOC for Dragon Oil. It even spooked Steinhoff into paying extra for Poundland — and all en route to the South African oufit’s implosion amid fraud claims. So at least here’s one bit of cheery news for Tesco boss Dave Lewis: no sign yet of Elliott on the Booker register. No, the bumpitrageur here is 1.75 per cent holder Sandell Asset Management. It reckons Mr Lewis’s £3.9 billion cash-and-shares bid for Booker is from the supermarket discount range. It’s got a point, too. At last night’s 204½p close, Tesco’s offer values Booker at 219p a share — below the present 225p. Moreover, Sandell has landed itself a vocal supporter: the proxy voting agency ISS. It’s telling the cash-and-carry outfit’s shareholders to “vote against the transaction” at February 28’s investor meeting. Booker needs 75 per cent of voting shareholders to approve the deal. ISS makes some decent points. Booker has only 6 per cent of the faster-growing, £85 billion “out of home” food market, so it still has lots to go for. Its 6.3 per cent compound average revenue growth over five years trounces Tesco UK’s 0.5 per cent. A 16 per cent share of the £200 million mooted synergies is no compensation for sharing 84 per cent of its profits with Tesco. And look at total shareholder returns over five years: 203 per cent for Booker; minus 33 per cent for Tesco. Now Booker’s locked into Tesco’s share price, it’s also missed the 20 per cent rise of its wholesaler peers. Some blame must lie with Mr Lewis, whose four-year turnaround has failed to extend to the Tesco share price. But at least he has one card to play: Booker boss Charles Wilson. He’s so keen on the deal that he’s rolling over £230 million of Booker shares into Tesco’s — and locking them up for five years. True, he is Mr Lewis’s heir apparent. But, after all the money Mr Wilson has made for them, would Booker investors really vote down his deal and risk his resignation? It’s hard to equate that with the ISS view that “if the deal with Tesco falls apart, there is seemingly limited downside risk for Booker’s shares”. Tesco needs only 50 per cent support. But Mr Lewis already has two rebel investors: Schroders and Artisan, together with 9 per cent. Bump the price and he may have more. Besides, there’s a fair bit of overlap on the shareholder registers. So, for now you would expect Mr Lewis to tough it out — even if logic says he deserves to be bumped.

philanderer: Kantar has Tesco as its top Christmas cracker, but market reckons it could still be a festive turkey Despite being the top performer among the ‘Big Four’ over Christmas, Tesco shares have been hampered by Morrisons’ good numbers and the continued rise of the discounters The strong performance from Morrisons is weighing on rival Tesco PLC (LON:TSCO) as the two compete in the same sandpit for the same customers. To that end, the 16.8% sales growth seen by discounters Aldi and Lidl over the holiday season is also probably having a negative effect. Given that there is a finite number of punters, if one store increases sales it is generally because it is taking shoppers from elsewhere. That said, Kantar has Tesco as the top performer out of the ‘Big Four’ over Christmas, with sales rising 3.1% in the three months to the end of December. But judging by the 1.2% fall in the share price today, the market seems to think that Tesco could still be a net loser over the festive period. The implication seems to be that Tesco has managed to grow sales volumes by cutting prices, which would put pressure on margins and, subsequently, profits. It also suggests that the company is yet to bring through the price rises that its peers have and that the market has been waiting for. Of course, it could all be much simpler than that and the share price fall is just a result of investors taking profits ahead of Tesco’s update on Thursday. As David Cheetham, chief market analyst at XTB.com says: “Tesco enjoyed the largest sales growth amongst its peers during December according to figures from Kantar Worldpanel and today’s decline is likely to be simply a case of profit taking after a strong run higher of around 25% in the past 6 months.” PROACTIVEINVESTORS.CO.UK

jeffian: Sorry if this has already been covered but, although a TSCO holder, I haven't been following this thread. Given that the clearance of the Booker deal without requiring TSCO to offload any existing stores seems to have surprised commentators who say this is an unexpectedly good outcome for TSCO, I'm slightly surprised there hasn't been more of a re-rating of the share price. I might get the response "it was already in the price" but if that was so, why were the commentators so surprised?!

philanderer: Sector movers: Food retailers bought, oil stocks see profit taking (ShareCast News) - Food retailers led UK stocks higher on Wednesday amid a report about improving shop prices and a strong update from wholesaler and convenience store owner Booker. Although the BRC-Nielsen shop price index revealed overall shop price deflation eased to 0.3% in June from the 0.4% drop in May, food inflation persisted. Food prices rose 1.4% in June as they did the previous month, with fresh food prices up 1.4% in June, 0.2 percentage points higher than in May and the highest increase since February 2014, while ambient food inflation softened to 1.% from the 1.8% increase in May. Booker reported growth in like-for-like sales in the first quarter thanks to the late Easter and favourable weather, boosting Tesco, which is currently awaiting regulatory permission to take over the wholesaler. Broker Shore Capital said food inflation was "more of a positive than negative feature of the investment case for the supermarket segment". However, ShoreCap was cautious on Booker even though acknowledging the wholesale's quarterly performance was outstanding and ordinarily would have driven upgrades and a demonstrably positive share price reaction. "However, the decision to merge with Tesco, one of the worst performers in the FTSE-100 in CY2017, means that the Booker share is now a function of the supermarket chain. So, recovery, deleverage and negative sentiment to Amazon-Whole Food Markets is controlling Booker's share price as well as Tesco's. In time this may work through if the CMA grants approval for the merger. "However, if the CMA puts forward unpalatable remedies to Tesco then the de-rating risk to Booker could be considerable."

portside1: Performance Share Plan (PSP) The performance measures for the PSP award for 2016/17 have been changed from those used in 2015/16. The priority is to have a plan aligned with three key strategic priorities: PSP measures Performance measure Weighting Definition of measure Relative TSR vs index comprising companies from FTSE350 Food & Drug Retailers and FTSE350 General Retailers indices 50% Growth in share price plus dividends reinvested. These incorporate Tesco’s key competitors within the FTSE350 Food & Drug Retailers and FTSE350 General Retailers indices. The groups are weighted towards the Food & Drug Retailers to reflect Tesco’s long-term business split between food and general retail Retail cash generated from operations 30% Cumulative retail cash generated from operations +/- movement in working capital, excluding Tesco Bank Key stakeholder measures 20% Three stakeholder metrics: customers, suppliers and colleagues • delivery of significant value to shareholders through share price and dividend performance; • returning the business to be one that generates sustainable, quality cash flow; and • building trust with key stakeholders (customers, suppliers, colleagues). Therefore, we will use a combination of relative Total Shareholder Return, Cumulative Retail Cash Generated from Operations and key stakeholder measures to determine the vesting of awards. so why have no shares been clawed back all shares issued over the last 5 years should be cancelled under these rules , the share price as only fallen not gone up and to get these free shares the share price has to be over 275p

alphahunter: As often with mergers/take-overs, there has been an overshoot in TSCO share price. Day-trading short is looking good.

mornington crescent: kazoom the chart was posted as much for its entertainment value as anything else One year charts for MRW and OCDO look very similar SBRY ia about a quarter of the size of TSCO and so is MRW so comparison is not very meaningful SBRY share price is lower than it was 20 years ago (thats as far back as my charts go, so I dont know where the floor might be TSCO share price has fallen to where it was 10 years ago but has reached an obvious chart support level
