I've just been trying to find out from Halifax via online chat, what I'm supposed to do in order to take up the offer
Me: Hi, I wish to take up the offer by EDL et al, for my holding of EDR shares. The draft offer mentions a semi-centralized procedure (where by there is reimbursement of fees and protection in case of adjustments to the offer price) - is this something I will be able to do?
Beverley: There are no recent events for this stock, the last one we notified you of was in December 2015
Beverley: The department will need to receive the information from the company themselves before notifying you of the event."
It looks like the Halifax know nothing.
I also contacted Societé Generale Securities Services, Paris, where I have further shares who replied:
"We inform you that as of today we did not received the instructions regarding this matter.
As soon as we obtain the procedure, you will be inform"
I am now replying back to the shareholder club email of 30/3 'Announcement: draft simplified cash tender offer' asking how we take up the offer.
Update - have just received the latest email from Shareholder club and looks like the offer dates have changed - now expiring 8th June (was 23rd May). Am going back to them anyway to find out if Halifax and the like will now be informed.
PS As much as I like owning a little bit of the House of Mouse, I won't be sorry to see the back of all this malarky!
