Market saying a counter offer could be on the cards. Let's hope so

Surely SNC need to pay more than 2080p. It's now 2147p

Holders will also get final div presumably. Not that it is very big!

Given prior history of M&A in this sector, a counter bid is a very distinct possibility, maybe from one of the large Asian consultants. I am planning to firmly hold my stock for now.

yeah, bit embarassing for the directors recommending 2080p. SNC-Lavalin will be worried at seeing their offer gazumped by the market.

3rd Quarter Slogsweep, likely Jul / Aug imo. There is a slight prospect of another bid maybe?

2073p is tempting since May have to wait till Xmas to get the 2080p. But may give it a week to see if another bid appears.

When does Lavalin have to make a firm bid under the T/O code?

Thanks Darkinbad - I was reading about the corruption at SNC. Sounds dodgy brown envelopes are/were the norm. It seems SNC's largest shareholder is putting up the cash for the takeover so it must be odds on it will go through. Maybe another suitor might counterbid now it's public knowledge the board of Atkins are selling up.

Canadian consultants seem to be cash rich. Stantec, another Canadian engineering Co bought MWH (privately held) about 12 months or so ago for a reported 65% premium.

They are, but they went through a bad patch about 4 years ago with some very dodgy dealings - Google "SNC Lavalin Reputation"

The chief executive of Atkins has hinted that his company is open to merger approaches, just weeks after reports of tie-up talks with peer CH2M Hill http://www.telegraph.co.uk/business/2017/02/08/atkins-boss-hints-merger-ch2m-would-strengthen-engineering-group/

Well they've been reorganising the business and consolidating departments to make the business structure less confusing and to leverage off each sector to try and offer a more complete client package for projects. However, I've always thought they were doing it for a sell out. The CEO is one for taking big pay and would seem he's now got the company to that stage for a lucrative offer. I can see another American outfit wanting to bid if it's now the case Atkins is up for sale. Black and Veatch won't like CH2M muscling in.

Is that a takeover of Atkins. Must be why the share price is up. What price for Atkins share. Valued at about £1.5Bn at the moment.
