Re: First Milk/Milk Link Proposed Merger


I think that a co-op needs to be as big as possible in order to work, the sooner the 3 get back together the better (for their members). I would think they need to control their collective egos & get on and merge.

The same problem seems to have stopped the NMR/CIS merger that would also have made so much sense. emoticon

Re: First Milk/Milk Link Proposed Merger


Will the Milklink members be interested in a merger after the announcements of their half year accounts?

Be interesting to see First Milks figures.

I understand that accounts can be made to look much better if you include members' capital contributions. emoticon Heard that from a First Milk man by the way.

Re: First Milk/Milk Link Proposed Merger


The historical accounts are one thing , but Milk Link has a higher exposure to butter/powder than First Milk.
If the commodity markets continue to weaken First Milk is better placed than ML?

First Milk/Milk Link Proposed Merger


 The Wiseman family have just sold more shares,I heard that it was either First Milk or DFoB that has bought them,also heard that Wiseman are interested in part or all of DFoB business ,has anybody got any idea whats going on?
 I was told the shares were at 70p premium which would suggest a pre-arranged deal!!

First Milk/Milk Link Proposed Merger


 Big Bird: Could it have been Milk Link that bought the Wiseman shares?,if it had been First Milk that may have taken them over the 30% threshold and they would have been obliged to make an offer for all the shares.
No word from First Milk although a letter in today about changes to the wording of the supply contract in preperation if the merger goes ahead.

First Milk/Milk Link Proposed Merger


 Have just heard that the merger talks are off. Has anybody any information if this is true?
 It looked dodgey when Potters web page had details of some of the negotations.
