Yes. They will get a significant portion of proceeds returned to them. Probably. Yes. Depends how they structure it. As it's a capital disposal, it wouldn't be unusual for a reduction of shares in issue at the same time as they pay out the cash to try to keep the share price the same for comparative purposes (i.e. you would get cash and a reduction in the number of shares you hold).

Has it been stated how the Costa sale will affect private shareholders? Do they get a cash payout? Does the current share price still have the value of Costa in it? If so what is the expected drop after Costa goes? z

"Pursuant to Listing Rule 9.6.14 (2), we confirm that Chris Kennedy, Independent Non-Executive Director of Whitbread PLC, has today been appointed as CFO of ITV plc with effect from 1 February 2019." That should help with advertising Premier Inns! ;~) ...ok I'm clutching at straws I know but things do sometimes seem to drag on and on here nowadays

#801 "Position/status PDMR, INDEPENDENT NON-EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR" He's a NED. He doesn't qualify for "free shares".

The huge value was achieved under the previous CEO, since AB took the healm the shares have just oscillated sideways. Selling Costa was a good move forced by IIs to realise some value here in light of that.

ah a wtb director actually buying shares! makes a change from their constant free shares. Suppose they have made huge value over the years, but rather give them cash than diluting us mere mortals.

Yes good move selling Costa and focusing on the hotel business, also just about anyone can open a coffee shop with no barrier to entry and the market is saturated as can be seen in any high street. The family silver is Premier Inn not a cup of coffee.

Costa contributes less than 30% to overall pre tax, with considerably slowing growth rates in the UK. The sale price represented about 60% of their entire market cap, taking the pre announcement WTB price. More than a good price imv. Medium term challenges here are labour cost pressures and consumer spending taking a knock.

They sold the family silver, Costa Coffee. What a mistake.

Nice write up in the IC highlighting that Premier Inn standalone will be valued at 12-14 times earnings if the costa sale proceeds. I am a big fan in these uncertain times, I like the Zip product innovation too and continue to add as this drifts lower. Budget rooms should do well in any brexit scenario but agree that labour shortages are the main risk.

Mentioned recently could the Costa gap close?. At the time I thought it was unlikely, less sure on that now.

Ftse almost uninvestable, brexit basket case, this heading back to under 4 quid, frightening where it would be without Coke deal..in the low 3’s at best..poor management needs clearing out, Brittan coming from hopeless Lloyds didnt help. Not sure who is going to be staying in all these hotels they have kept building instead of paying a better dividend to long suffering shareholders, UK heading for hard ore recession so hotels probably not best biz to be in.
