adeg: no it's a "good" deal based on the recent share price, but its not "great" for long term holders. This is an opportunistic bid that will probably succeed and they have sold out before the potential can be realised.

adeg: Smartie, I've already told you I think closer to £4 per share is the right price. The US operation is worth £2.72 by itself plus the European side. I am more than happy if this gets voted down and the price drops back below £2. I will pick up more as, IMO, in the next 2 to 3 years this will go over £4 per share in the normal market. They are only currently operating in 14 out of 50 states in the US, massive market, massive potential. Caesars are getting this on the cheap. What I don't understand is why aren't Caesars buying shares in the market. The price is below their offer price so every share they buy saves them money and more importantly gets them another guaranteed vote. Circa 28 million shares were traded in the last 3 days below the offer price, 2.6% of the company, they should be building themselves a stake at a reduced price.

adeg: The deal is nowhere near complete. The fat lady is only just warming up her vocal cords. The company is seriously undervalued at £2.72 per share and the market agrees, which is why the actual market price is higher. The WMH directors were backed into a corner and forced to recommend the offer from Caesars due to the threat of them backing out the JV. But Caesars need WMH more than WMH needs Caesars, the shareholder vote is a massive hurdle and I just cannot see them getting the 75% unless they up their offer well into the £3's. At £2.72 I would rather walk away from the JV and allow WMH to attack the US market without Caesars, in the long term I think that would provide better returns.

fletcher270: I think since the offer became common knowledge the price has been depressed with gvc results I think had the offer not have been forthcoming the share price would have been around the £2.7 Mark anyway

zinos73: I bought in at an average of 134 and still see no reason to sell. With what has happened to the share price over the last 3-4 months, then sure, this looks like it’s got “carve up” written all over it but I only see 272 as rock bottom unless there is no takeover (which imo is an impossibility) and then Wmh will drop to pre takeover levels, but, and this is the big but, their position in the next huge betting market in the world is No.1!! Let’s wait and see what happens and for now I am happy to hold until at least the 23rd October. Good luck all.

oohrogerpalmer: Don't understand why share price is above offer. Had several shares over the years in companies that are taken over and in every one the share price was always 2 -5p below the offer price. Markets are definitely edging bets towards another bid.

gbh2: It actually reads: Possible Cash Offer William Hill Shareholders would be entitled to receive: for each William Hill Share 272 pence in cash. Which the board of WMH have stated they're "minded to recommend to shareholders" Given that Caesars is already a Partner of WMH they don't need to offer more, there's no way they'll agree to WMH going to anyone else.

oohrogerpalmer: The fact the current price is above the offer price would indicate the markets expect a higher bid. Usually on an offer of 272p the share price would be stable around 268 ish. Don't think this is finished yet !!

johnv: Yes,I noticed it this morning, so here is the message The Great Correction on WIMHY yahoo wrote this: (Quote) : I think a true valuation on this equity might surprise (pleasantly) some people. I did 10 minutes of math the other day and here are the numbers I came up with.... From what I could find, DKNG commands about a 38% market share of sports betting in the US. WH enjoys about a 25% market share... from the 1 in 4 sports bets are placed through WH. Today, DKNG's valuation stands at about 19B. Some very simple math will get you the valuation per percentage point of market share... Going on DKNG's current valuation (about 19B) 19B/38%= gives you about 500M per percentage point of market share. Apply that metric to WH and you get a valuation of 12.5B. Even after today's move, WH sits at 4B in market cap. So... 4B/12.5B gives you the percentage that WH is currently discounted... 32 or... 68%. If you're going by DKNG's valuation, WH is currently (even at today's prices), undervalued by 68%. Currently we are valued at $4 per B in market cap. $16/$4B. If the sale of this company unlocks its true value, based on what its peers are trading for... you're looking at a share price of $4 (12.5B) or $50/share. That's without any kind of premium that could absolutely get paid if a bidding war unfolds like some are predicting. (Unquote) That would make WMH about 969p.

coxsmn: Financial Times articleWilliam Hill's shares were trading at about 172p before the Apollo approach, far below the current 286p trading price, and were valued at just 128p in a £223m equity raise in June. That leaves scope for any bid to be based on a lower valuation than the current share price, two people briefed on the matter¬†said.Greg Johnson, an analyst at Shore Capital, estimated that the value of the US market could reach $20bn per year and said that if William Hill pursued an "all in" deal with Caesars, its market share "could eventually be worth circa $8bn - potentially 300p per William Hill share".As UK rivals Flutter and GVC have grown through multiple deals in recent years, William Hill has struggled to find a suitor after a joint takeover by Rank Group, owner of Mecca Bingo, and the online gambling company 888 fell through.HTTPS://www.ft.com/content/2ca82f51-4433-46bb-a208-71bafc5b364a
