Tuesday, 10 May 2022, 5:16 pm

The Bloomberg follow ups appear to be arriving on a daily, if not hourly, basis at the moment.

Now, Betaville's arch rivals have published a fresh follow up to little old Betaville's intelligence alert about Ontex (https://www.betaville.co.uk/betaville-intelligence/uncooked-alert-ontex-said-to-part-3/) earlier this year...

UNCOOKED ALERT: Silicon Motion Technology Corporation said to ... - Part 3

Thursday, 5 May 2022, 7:58 am

I see arch rivals at Bloomberg have published another follow up to little old Betaville's UNCOOKED ALERT about Silicon Motion Technology Corporation.

Now hacks at Bloomie are suggesting MaxLinear Inc, a US-listed hardware business, is in talks to buy Silicon Motion Technology Corporation.

Below are the links to the Bloomie "scoop" in case you missed it and Betaville's UNCOOKED ALERT:..

Saturday, 30 April 2022, 10:54 am

EG Group, the owner of Asda supermarkets, and Alimentation Couche-Tard are reportedly in deal talks as part of a transaction that could value the former at $16 billion.

Tuesday, 22 June 2021, 12:58 pm

After this morning's UNCOOKED Alert a charming chap from Bloomberg got in touch to apologise for the mistake in aggregating Betaville content accurately.

And I understand Bloomberg has corrected its story from yesterday, which is very gracious of the global financial media outlet.

So, no hard feelings then from Betaville's end.

Now let's get back to competing for scoops and stories!..

Gupta advisors calling in bids for Liberty Steel's engineering unit - sources

Monday, 26 April 2021, 7:58 pm

Sanjeev Gupta's advisers at PricewaterhouseCoopers have got in touch with potential acquirers of Liberty Steel's engineering division to formally begin the sale process of the unit.

Now, Betaville realises that perhaps this might be a bit of wrinkle on the running Gupta-Liberty Steel-Greensill-David Cameron story as it had already been flagged up that PWC was carrying out a 'strategic review' of Liberty Steel's engineering division...

The telecoms giant, the bust up and the (potential) deal...

Monday, 8 March 2021, 10:28 pm

Betaville has been watching the goings on at BT Group with interest.

For readers unfamiliar with the situation, the company recently announced Jan Du Plessis, the chairman, was planning to retire but that announcement was swiftly followed up by a scoop from the Kleinmanator of Sky News about how Philip Jansen, BT's chief executive, gave boardroom colleagues an ultimatum over his own future that led to the departure...

Cash calls - who is next? - Part 19

Wednesday, 11 November 2020, 7:10 am

Perhaps Betaville was being too optimistic (or, er, pessimistic) by predicting the next wave of cash calls from companies that have already tapped equity investors for capital will take place in early 2021.

In fact, it appears some businesses that have already raised funds from the equity market, such as cruise operator Carnival, are hitting the road again and asking investors for fresh funds...
