Minority Enlabs shareholders reject “inadequate” Entain takeover proposal

first_imgPrivate investors Hans Isoz, Jimmy Jonsson and Ludwig Pettersson, who hold 2.58%, 1.71% and 0.63% of Enlabs’ shares respectively, have also voiced their opposition to the proposal, Alta Fox said. Finance Minority Enlabs shareholders reject “inadequate” Entain takeover proposal 18th January 2021 | By Robert Fletcher Alta Fox said it has the support of a number of other minority shareholders, including Topline Capital, which holds 2.44% of shares in the operator. Topics: Finance Strategy Email Address At the time of writing, Enlabs’ shares were trading at SEK43.2 per share. Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter However, Alta Fox Capital Management, which currently owns 2,332,625 shares in Enlabs, representing 3.34% of total shares in the business, said it does not plan to tender any shares at the current offer price. “This offer materially undervalues the company, represents a negligible premium of 1.1% to the pre-offer trading price and has unusual circumstances that make us question why Enlabs chairman, Niklas Braathen, accepted such an inadequate offer,” Alta Fox said. Entain has been dealt a blow in its pursuit of its acquisition of Enlabs, after shareholders that owns 10.7% of the Optibet operator rejected its bid, saying it “materially undervalues” the business. The investor added that if Entain would not meet this asking price, Enlabs should remain a standalone entity. This cash offer, which is supported by the Enlabs board, equated to an SEK40 per share deal. Shareholders holding 42.2% of Enlabs’ shares have also undertaken to accept the offer. “The fact that Entain will compensate Braathen as a senior executive post-deal and that the CEO of Entain just announced his departure is highly unusual. It leads us to conclude that while this is a good deal for Entain, it is a bad deal for Enlabs minority shareholders.” Alta Fox, which has retained legal counsel as part of the process, has instead put forward an alternate proposal, calling for Entain to pay SEK55 for each Enlabs share, which would value Enlabs at approximately £337.6m. “Alta Fox confidently believes we have the support to block a squeeze-out of minority shareholders, legal counsel to ensure their fair treatment under Swedish law, and the determination to obtain a fair price that is reflective of Enlabs’ standalone growth prospects,” Alta Fox said. Regions: Europe Online gambling operator Entain, formerly known as GVC Holdings, earlier this month tabled an offer worth £250m (€281.1m/$339.4m) to acquire Enlabs.

Subsequently, ecommerce stocks have seen some incredible growth.The lockdowns imposed by Covid-19 have only further accelerated this trend, due to both the reduced traffic of customers and higher fixed costs (rent, security, and sanitation).5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…While selling products online can drastically reduce expenses for businesses, it does introduce a few new problems that this secret ecommerce stock helps to solve.Products for online retail have two primary requirements. They need storage space, and access to a logistics network for fast and efficient delivery to the customer, both of which are provided by Warehouse REIT (LSE:WHR).This ecommerce stock owns and manages 95 industrial warehouses across the UK close to infrastructure hubs.Image source: Warehouse REIT 2020 Annual ReportAs it stands, the demand far exceeds the supply of storage space in prime locations, which has led to an exponential growth in rental incomes for warehouse operators.Furthermore, real-estate firm Savills has estimated that every additional €1bn of online sales will require an additional 775,000sqft of warehouse spaceWarehouse REIT primarily operates Tier-3 warehouses strategically placed in economically buoyant areas, close to transport links and large conurbations.These warehouses are typically small in scale – less than 100,000sqft – but still addresses a wide diversity of smaller and larger businesses, including the likes of John Lewis and Amazon. By focusing on smaller-scale storage facilities the firm has been able to dodge its larger competitors that focus on large-scale warehousing.The ecommerce stock has a fairly simple business model. It acquires existing warehouses in prime locations that have depreciated in value due to poor maintenance. After injecting additional capital to refurbish the properties, Warehouse REIT leases them out to businesses.Since its IPO in 2017, the business has been performing exceptionally well. Revenue has increased by nearly four times from £6.57m to £30m, and due to the low costs involved with managing the warehouses after refurbishment, around 70% of that is pure profit.As the firm’s revenue is entirely dependent on the businesses using their facilities, it’s important to take a look at the occupancy rates and lease durations.As of March 2020, the occupancy rate stood at an extraordinarily high 93.4% up from 92% a year prior!The average lease duration is a more muted but still a respectable 5.2 years up from 4.6 in 2019. While I would ideally like to see this figure closer to 8+ years, the rising trend does provide confidence that management are heading in that direction.With warehousing facilities unable to keep up with demand, I believe the market conditions are extremely favourable to this ecommerce stock, allowing for a rare combination of potentially explosive returns paired with a 5.7% dividend yield.
