Could it be the buyer acted with the improved offer having seen the numbers for H1?

tiswas - C'est la vie! Banked a good profit & pleased that holders may finally reap rewards. Today's statement actually confirms why my patience wore off. Why not release this news yesterday alongside results? Not the first time there has been a material RNS shortly after a result or trading announcement. Simply put, an investor should realise when investing that in the case of THAL, it's DS company & investors require to play by DS's rules! GLAH Kind regards GHF

Like others here I am concerned about what THAL would do with the proceeds if the disposal goes ahead. THAL's stake in LSR is worth about £8 million. LSR is busy selling off its properties but realising net prices some 5/10% below the latest valuation. It says that it is selling the less attractive properties first and may seek to sell the remainder in one parcel at the end of the year. So THAL has a reasonable chance of emerging with a modest profit within the next 12 months. I am more worried about Papua Mining (PML)which is pitifully short of funds and is likely to be seeking more from THAL. Does Mr Soukup know something about PML that is not publicly revealed ? Investment in PML shares looks to me as speculative as backing an outsider in the Grand National ! I would be content to see THAL write off its stake which I believe to be only modest.

It sounded like the buyers were playing silly beggars last time and taking liberties when oil price was weak. Its bounced now so they have come back with something more sensible. You would hope that the deal goes through this time. I would be surprised if Duncan would have entertained a call and put out today's announcement unless it was very likely to happen. Hopefully all the dd has been completed and all they are waiting for is the customer to approve the ownership switch. I think NAV goes upto to circa 150p on disposal. The key is what Duncan decides to do with the cash.

Well it appears an acceptable offer was made by a credible third party....went into exclusive talks thinking they were in the driving seat....substantially reduced offer for no good reason thinking Thalassa were over a barrel(so to speak!) and DS said how about F off....and they have now come back with something that is likely acceptable ...otherwise I think they would have been told the same.Since the revised first (unacceptable) first offer was worth them market cap £15m obviously they have come back some way north of that. He is only interested in selling a profitable attractive business if it adds significant value to the overall group valuation...I would imagine a niche operation could have greater value in a larger industry group structure.

You might not employ DS to be your investment manager but you would certainly trial him if you were putting together a poker team.

It almost feels as if DS is now playing games with Investors.

Before the disposal talks I was looking for £1 as an initial target price. Let's see where this all leads

:)....question being if this does go through and we end up with a highly liquid balance sheet with let's say well over 100p net cash or short term investments what does the board do with the money!

I don't have any yet but if the share price hits 140 I'll be more than happy to buy you a beer or 2 ?

Kooba - I think that is a bit on the high end. I'd be much more conservative than that

Initially the cynic in me thought DS threw the news in about the equipment failure so they could buyback at a lower price. Let's see where this leads but should hopefully see a rise in to the 70s atleast

Haha, bloody hell. Talk about Sod's law! Oh well, good luck to you all, I hope it delivers and that DS returns cash rather than buying a chocolate teapot factory.

I am now fully out. I wish you all well and I'm sure the buy back will support the price but I no longer know what I am invested in. They are making noises to a slower recovery in the seismic sector, the large interest payment is clear as mud and as for the other investments... well, I know little about those. For that reason I've sold. I may be back but DS has too much of a say in what happens and that could well be anything that takes his fancy.

Reckon buyback started. I had no trouble offloading a 6-figure holding this morning. My patience has finally gone despite the underlying valuation. We had issues in Russia a few years ago, bid failing to materialise more recently & now equipment problems with a contract. That's not forgetting the headquarters debacle. I'm out for a nice 70% profit. GLAH Kind regards GHF

Buyback can now start in earnest now out of close period.See if they are going to be aggressive but trading at substantial discount to nav they can afford to pay up a bit.

JMF69, Not quite! 'Cash at time of reporting is $4.8m'

3m of the 5m something of receivables have been paid since end of June. So add the 3m to the cash figure

For a man of words there is not a lot of info in that set. Cash a lot lower than it was, and interest of $1.3m on zero debt? How does that work? And of the other 'investments'...?
