Mattboxy. It may only be temporarily like that. Could only guess, but it's maybe the bidder (or agent for) mopping up shares at a price just below its takeover offer. Then, there's a normal market working alongside that, so the normal market maker might be bidding say 137p but you don't see that when you hit your sell button because the best price only is presented. The buy at 139.4p is the normal rsp buy price from a market maker. Stamp duty stops anyone benefitting from the difference. I see there's a trade at 140p gone through for 2.5 million shares. That's maybe someone buying those aggregated sells of c. 139.5p? Edit On further inspection, I see that Hargreave Hale agreed to sell 2,575,000 shares to CTI at 140p. So, that better explains the above mentioned 140p trade. Fwiw, I'm still holding my Waterman shares. As others have said, there have been occasions when a higher bid has come along. However, CTI have commitments which will give them 26% of the equity, so realistically would anyone else come along?

A top five portfolio holding - very pleasant news to wake up to. Well done to the board - all your good work and our patience rewarded handsomely.

Have held since 2004. Has been on my sell list for the last two years - but only when it reached triple figures. Looks like we are there now... I am holding a bit longer though. I sold Premier Farnell a day before a competing offer arrived. That was frustrating. I don't have a replacement lined up for Waterman so will hold a little bit longer to see what transpires.

Always leave a bit for the next bloke as they , well for me anyway. +80% in just over 2 months I'll take that, not afraid to admit it was probably more luck than judgement tho. Popped up on my filter and I went for it.DbD

I sold my 20k shares this morning, believing that a counter bid is unlikely. For once it seems that news of the bid didn't leak.

When Atkins had an offer of 2080p it went up to 2147p. Remains to be seen if there is a counterbid, but Elliot Capital Advisers an American hedge fund who is an activist investor took a stake in Atkins after the takeover offer to extract a higher offer.

I was surprised to get £1.3826 per share for my holding, so little to be gained by hanging around as it looks to be a done deal, a bit like Avesco, nice to see so many reaping reward for patience. Another lesson learnt...again 🙄

Amazed and delighted at the premium, not checked CTI out but I assume it is small beer to them and gives them access to and a credible name in the UK. Took 136.5p for my holding. OK it would probably take a nuke from Korea to stop this going through but bearing in mind the size of the premium and what I paid for them a bird in the hand etc.......

Found it now after further googling. Here is a link for anyone else who, like me, was scratching their head earlier: http://www.investegate.co.uk/cti-engineering-co-/rns/recommended-offer-for-waterman-group-plc/201705090700085331E/

Has a takeover been announced? Can anyone provide a link please? My usual Investegate news source doesn't show anything as far as I can see and a quick google gives me something in a strange language (Norwegian?) which I cannot understand!

Just need to decide whether to sell up now and reinvest elsewhere or wait for the money to come through.
