ok so from what I can work out you can do 3 things.

1 - nothing - TWDC will then buy your shares at EUR1 and you will lose 1/3 of the value

2 - sell the shares to TWDC for 1.25 then buy 9X your holding for 1.25 and sell the whole lot back to TWDC - works out you get 3.50 for the shares you already hold.

3 Sell your shares and buy 9x as above, then hold onto them... This is the risky part- the census seems to be at some stage in the future TWDC will buy up all remaining shares- at what rate no one knows, and most people would have to pay out a few hundered to buy the shares.


I get the feeling most people will do option 2- which is what they want as they no longer want small investors.

Does anyone else think this is correct?

No my financial advisor informs me that you cannot sell your shares first. You have to hold them and then add the 9 per share. Eg 100 would then hold 1000 as they need to buy 9:1 ratio. Only then can you sell back to and that it is NOT forced buyback. It says that clearly on the corporate website.

Suppose we will just have to wait and see... I know that dealing with SocGen who run the admin on pure registered shares is a bit of a pain, not sure if everyone will have to go through them or not, but I am not looking forward to it!

As I understand it as I have 100 shares I am still in the Shareholder's Club. I don't need to sell or buy anymore. I remain a member until my renewal is due. After that I don't know what will be expected.
The set up at DLP is different to any other park so there is nothing to compare it too.

It all sounds very confusing.

I have 20 shares but would be interested in buying more (9x) at the 1 rate to take me over the 100 share limit.

Will we be sent paperwork to do this?

I'm really confused by this whole thing.

My membership is up at the end of this month. I was very lucky in renewing just before the rule change for 20 to 100. I need to purchase the other 80 shares to stay in the club.

I don't want to no longer be in the club and worry that it will be too late for me if this 1 Euro per share offer does come about in the new year.

I don't know if I should just buy up the difference now while the price is still less than it has been recently.

I'm really not that financially savy and not sure what to do for the best. I was all set and would of gone ahead and purchased the shares but this a massive curve ball!

And going again - just don't know when!

quite simply how much did you save in having the shareholders club? Then price up how much it will cost to get 80 shares now. Or wait till the 9-1 offer comes about and see what the deal/availability is for the shareholder club (which may disappear at the same time!)

It would be a gamble though, the shareholder club may close to new members at the same time.
