    Question is; do we like these Johnny Foreigners any better than the last ones?

    maybe. They bought Yellow Pages. You see that they've just done? directory prices are jumping between 50-100% across the table.

    Thumbs up THE must have stock is now even BETTER.

    LOTS of talk with ARABS on the left and now CANADIANS on the right with them telling everybody how big they are the only thing not happening is talk about Hard Cold Cash..

    How much are those mountaineer moose lovers paying for AIA?
    Having got ourselves into a debt-induced economic crisis, the only permanent way out is to reduce the debt either directly by abolishing large slabs of it, or indirectly by inflating it away.

    I don't think any price has been announced yet.

    You think I should buy some AIA today at these levels?

    Will wait and see what the deal is before making a decision. There's far too many people using pure emotion to guide their investment strategies.

    Still no details, but Mayor Curtis quoted as saying the bid deserves serious consideration, or words to that effect. Does he know something we don't?

    Has to be a buy imo , for the longterm , with possible short term upside thrown in for free.

    The fact so many are after this asset shows what a long term goldmine it is

    Agree with you on that one, Ratty.

    MERGER

    REL: 0840 HRS Auckland International Airport Limited

    MERGER: AIA: Termination of the Merger Implementation Agreement with DAE

    Auckland International Airport Limited (AIAL) and Dubai Aerospace Enterprise
    (DAE) Ltd (DAE) announced today that AIAL and DAE have completed the
    consultation process required under the Merger Implementation Agreement
    (MIA). AIAL and DAE have determined that, in light of the circumstances,
    they have no alternative but to terminate the MIA on a mutually acceptable
    basis, including that each party bears its own costs.

    In light of recent developments, DAE regrets that, notwithstanding the best
    efforts of the board of AIAL, the transaction could not proceed in the form
    proposed.

    Kjeld Binger, Chief Executive Officer of DAE Airports, said: "DAE regrets
    that the opportunity to do business with AIAL did not eventuate on this
    occasion and wishes John Maasland and his team at AIAL well."

    Each of AIAL and DAE advise that they will be making no further comment in
    relation to these issues.

    My sentiments exactly, Bricks.
    With all the hoohaa of the last few weeks one would think that this company had only 2 shareholders! - or maybe 3 with Infratil thrown in.
    I know its a different matter to get the other 52,000 odd or whatever is the number, to exercise their power, but here's hoping.
