http://www.gamesindustry.biz/content_page.php?aid=6629 Future eyes games magazine dominance with Highbury bid Sources at print publishing firm Future have indicated that it has tendered a bid for rival publisher Highbury House, the parent company of its last major rival in the UK games magazine market, Paragon. ... Future would want to sell the business titles.

http://www.mediaweek.co.uk/articles/folder2005/01/highbury-house-bid-shares "Magazine giant Highbury House has been forced to issue a statement to the City after the company's shares jumped a massive 25% today on the back of a potential bid for the business. Speculation has increased today that three magazine groups – Future, Wilmington and Centaur – are rumoured to be interested in the group, publisher of Front, Real Homes, Fast Car and the recently launched Spin cricket title." HHO have a lot of debt and the enterprise value will be high. I suppose WIL could buy the equity cheaply, reduce the debt by selling the consumer titles and then restructure the business titles. They have a good record of cutting costs and integrating acquisitions. I suspect Future would be prepared to pay the most, as the consumer titles are the biggest part of HHO.

http://www.mediaweek.co.uk/articles/folder2005/01/25/signsaregood "Despite the mid-cycle adspend wobble in the fourth quarter of last year, we believe 2005 will be another year of cyclical growth for the media sector." "The conversion of incremental revenues to operating profit is strongest in B2B and broadcasting companies and these sub-sectors continue to offer the most attractive growth potential going forward." "What is the catalyst for performance? With the weight of money venture capitalists have to invest – over $500bn globally, according to Private Equity Intelligence – we expect consolidation to gather momentum and corporate activity to thrive across the sector."

I recall buying masses of these in 1997 for £1.10p and selling them start of fourth quarter 1999 at £4.00 so went back in at £1.09 earlier the year. Am a little surprised at the speed of price rise as it is now a very different company with dipsticks running its magazines eg "Hospital Waste News" etc in London. I traded out of a salvage company to buy them and at first it rose & WIL went down but going over 1.35 has brought people back in

WJCCGHCC Your comments prompted another look at the basics ... and I concluded that given the revised forecasts WIL does look fairly close to being fully priced. Indeed my number cruncher comes up with a FAIR price of 182p plus minus 5% in the 9 month time frame. OK ... I have a reputation for selling early ... but I now feel there are better (faster moving) opportunities for my hard earned cash ... so I sold out today at 161.25p and realised a 34% return in 3 months that I had expected in 12 months. Thanks again, Alf

Added a few more today at open, rewarded already. Wish AHT would behave like this just lost two holdings @75 before I could cancel my stop losses. Begining to think the auto SL is a device invented by MM's to enable them to pick up cheap stock on early post results trading.

WJCCGHCC Having read the situation ... I bought these for the first time on the 1 Oct at 120p ... and they have gained about 30% in the 10 weeks or so since. Slogsweep has read the situation (the good news today ... justifying PE?)and added a few more. I guess thats the market. I guess you were wrong to become an ex-holder of WIL ... and you may be wrong about the PE? Only time will tell. Thanks for your input and LOL. Alf

Used to. Very solid company. I certainly misread the recent advance. Not sure why they deserve a PE of 18/19.
