I think you are worrying unduly. If you look at the list of shareholders hTTp://www.tristel.com/investor-centre/director-substantial-shareholdings The directors don't have enough voting power to sell out cheaply, even without outside shareholders, the chairman has more shares than all the others put together. Regarding the price paid, the shares have a nominal 1p value and new shares would be issued and allotted at this value. There would not be any requirement for a premium of any sort. The only cost to other holders would be the dilutive effect of 990,000 extra shares. Read any of the issue of equity announcements for confirmation.

I've no major issue with the shares vesting at the achievement levels sent but it sticks in my craw that they will be so cheap given the company will have to find the difference for, you guessed it, shareholders fund. Put simply, Director A pays 1p per share, TSTL - the company - finds the remaining 349p to fund the purchase of the share - more if the price has passed beyond that point. Where are they going to get that from any who suffers the disadvantage? I also vehemently dislike the "all shares vest on a change of control of the company" regardless of the the value of the shares. That is bonkers and provides NO incentive to directors to fight for all share holders interests rather than purely their own. Therefore, I will vote against this proposal on all 4 of the ISA/SIPP accounts I control.

Content, not happy. I am talking about the amount they have to pay for the option shares once they vest which is 1 penny per share. so they make a profit of 99p per share even if the price when they exercise is only £1. and in the event of a change of control the vesting conditions do not apply. so the company could be sold below the vesting price and the option holders would still make a huge profit.

"they do not provide the incentive to improve the share price" One-third will vest upon the achievement of a share price of GBP3.50; One-third will vest upon the achievement of a share price of GBP4.25; One-third will vest upon the achievement of a share price of GBP5.00. Why on earth would you be happy if they vested "at or near the current share price" Have I missed something?

I hope all shareholders will vote against the proposed 1p options as they do not provide the incentive to improve the share price that is the point of granting options. I would be content if they were exerciseable at or near the current share price.

Piedro - do not offer me advice - I do not need it. This business is not fun, it involves hard won cash. Personally, by instinct, I am not an investor, I am a trader. Mrs P on the other hand is simply interested in safely beating the bank, as I thought I had politely explained. Kindly get back to discussing TSTL and leave us out of it.

PITM, some advise: Try investing instead of watching your trousers Investing should be fun, go and talk to the company when in doubt. I started buying these back in 2006 I liked the company and what it did I've since had a few crosses with the directors, particularly in the bad times and bought more. That's what's investing is all about IMHO The rewards are a bonus and come later And I've never worked out my divi. yield on a 41¾p per share over the 10 yrs Each to their own GL

Tks guys. This is currently one of Mrs P's cautious long term holdings. We have no problems with the company and its products and she is ok with a fairly stable sp, although some capital appreciation would obviously be nice. The main aim in her pf is for total return to comfortably beat bank savings. So we are typically looking for a stable or better share price and a good and appreciating div which is around twice or better than she can get with a bank. We fully understand the words Special Dividend, but the loss of it brings her potential yield down close to 2% and we think we can do better elsewhere. FWIW, her other holdings at the moment (IBST, JIM, LGEN, PCTN, RGL, STOB, WJG) are yielding between 4 and 7.5%. We haven't yet decided what to do and I will let her instinct decide in the end, but mny tks for the pointers. pete

Pete, I will take up your challenge to point out what you may have missed. It's a year last August when I saw the light with TSTL, made a small investment and made several more as cash became available. Apad first mentioned it, for which I'm grateful, but I did lots of independent research before I invested and you may like to fill in any gaps in what you know about TSTL by going back to read some of it along with posts by others around that time. I don't have the time to do research to that level any more but it's still very relevant. I'm quite happy to forego some dividend income with this company as I can see where it will be in the future. Please go back and read up from the point it began to dawn on me and I'm sure you and other family members will get it and be patient. https://uk.advfn.com/cmn/fbb/thread.php3?id=17243795&from=2020

PITM, There is nothing esoteric about the dividend policy ... ... all was well till they hit trouble in 2010-11 when they were obliged to reduce. With the recovery in 2014 dividends once again resumed their growth and now in 2017 are back to normal. The 2 specials can perhaps be considered as compensation for the shortfall of 2011-13 AIMHO

The share price has certainly been volatile. Doesn't matter much for LTH's but there has also been a substantial share price fall and an equally large fall in yield due to the lack of a special dividend, This may be putting some people off. We bt for yld with the hope of an improvement so we will consider a sale. I am sure someone will put me right if I've missed something.

someone cashing in ... Issue of Equity Tristel plc (AIM: TSTL), the manufacturer of infection prevention, contamination control and hygiene products, announces that, following the exercise of options by an employee, it has issued and allotted 116,950 new ordinary shares of 1 penny each in the Company

I get the impression that Tristel has lost interest in Anistel, no promotions having been seen for some time, whereas their rival and 'ex-source' company, Medimark Scientific, can be found in most of the veterinary shows AIMHO

Tristel has always been volatile. It is true that PE is high but the potential for future growth in the USA is very strong and could be a game changer. Of course there are risks but so far the company has always delivered.

I very much doubt that the fall in the share price today was down to the article by Richard Beddard referenced above. In essence, it was a well written article which simply questioned whether too much future profit growth was being assumed in the share price as at the end of last week. It is less than 3 weeks ago that I bought a slug of these shares at 268p - and that was by a large distance the most I have ever paid for this share. I expect that the price will continue to bounce around. As I am still adding, I fervently hope so.

No clues, Trapper. I sold 2500 at 297 and find myself pretty tempted to buy them back... maybe my sale triggered the drop? ;-)

murray80, I understand and agree that any sale would require shareholder approval. However, after the last debacle, the board should be going the extra mile. If they're confident that there won't be a sale at a lower valuation than the performance targets, then let's make the performance conditions apply equally in both situations. Why not? You comment about it being normal for options to vest on takeover. Well perhaps, but the point is that normal options are not NIL COST. That makes all the difference. With "normal" options, directors are rewarded for an uplift in share price. With NIL COST, they may well be rewarded for a reduction in share price. Surely it's very simply to change the scheme, and more importantly, the right thing to do.

Briangee - "if a bid is proposed" don't forget that a company sale would need a substantial majority in a shareholder vote. It's not just down to the Board. The Board are also the largest shareholders so I don't see why they would sell at a low price against theirs and everyone else's best interests. I also know that almost all company option schemes become exercisable if a company is sold.
