    It's a merger not a takeover.

    It IS a takeover and on the present terms, FOGL shareholders have been well and truly shafted!

    Have you actually read the announcement by Rockhopper and Falkland oil and gas. They are merging 1 share of FOGL is .2993 for 1 RKH share. If it was a buyout they would have to say so.

    We're talking semantics here! As a very long term shareholder of FOGL I have indeed read the full RNS announcement in detail and consider, with a lot of others, that this deal has been engineered to sell out FOGL at the lowest price in its history. We feel that there is information available which would have enhanced the FOGL share price and given a much better deal for their shareholders rather than the paltry terms that now exist. What has gone on behind the scenes here is unknown but many of us think the whole deal stinks and the value to shareholders has been the least of the BOD's concerns.
    I will not enter any further discussion on this board as it is being fully aired on the FOGL discussion board on and others.

    @8 Think

    If it's your country, why have there been no arrests of the naughty oilmen then?

    It's been soooooo long since 2010 (or whenever it was that your country promised to arrest the oil executives).

    How long must we wait?
