Tom Winnifrith Bonus Bearcast: My own thoughts on Pires Investments and Tern, the marriage that failed

By Tom Winnifrith | Friday 22 July 2022

Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours. I wrote this article myself, and it expresses my own opinions. I am not receiving compensation for it (other than from ShareProphets). I have no business relationship with any company whose stock is mentioned in this article.

I am, after all, an expert on divorces and failed marriages. But this one failed even before the two made it to the altar, as Pires Investments (PIRI) shareholders rejected an all share merger with TERN (TERN). I salute them. I look at why this deal failed, the logic behind it for Tern (TERN), viz an escape, the logic for Pires - arguably the right strategy but the wrong target - and where both go from here. I make Pires an offer it should accept, if it is to consider any more M&A activity.
