Looks to me as if Ekwienox are taking control with 51% and going to run the show....which should be good as they have experience & indeed the money to invest.

Outsider - yes, I've just been reading it; it raises quite a few questions, and getting the placing away at 23p seems encouraging. Must have another look at this, though why Ekwienox should buy a stake and ages later provide this financing is a mystery. I'm a bit suspicious, I must say...

4Less Group plc (The) 09 February 2006 The 4Less Group Plc Fund Raising by the Company The 4Less Group Plc (the 'Company' or '4Less') announces that the Company is proposing to raise a minimum of £1.5 million, before expenses, and has entered into an investment agreement (the 'Investment Agreement') with Ekwienox FX Limited, a subsidiary of an existing shareholder, Ekwienox Limited (collectively 'Ekwienox'). As the first stage, the Company has today raised £450,000 by way of a convertible loan ('CL') advanced by Ekwienox. The CL is convertible into new Ordinary Shares in the Company at 23p per share on the successful closing of the Placing. The CL will bear interest at 7% until conversion or repayment. Failing a successful closing of the Placing it will be convertible at Ekwienox's option at any time up to 1 February 2007 or repayable on 30 days' notice. In addition, the Company is proposing to raise a minimum of an additional £1,050,000 (before expenses) by way of a placing of new ordinary shares at 23 pence per share ('the Placing'). The Placing and related subscription arrangements will be subject to a waiver of Rule 9 of the City Code on Takeover and Mergers ('Waiver') and to shareholder approval which is proposed to be sought at an EGM in March 2006. The Company's largest shareholder, Mr. Charles McLeod, with a holding of 35.9% has irrevocably agreed to vote his shares in favour of the Placing at the EGM. Further details of the Waiver and the Placing will be provided in the circular anticipated to be sent to shareholders around the end of February 2006 with a view to the Placing being completed on or before 31 March 2006. The Company plans to build its position in the United Kingdom as one of the leading providers of services encompassing the arrangement of international mortgages, foreign currency transfers, regular payment plans and international insurance. In addition to foreign currency transfers for its retail client base, the Company is planning to expand its business in the corporate sector. The new funds will be utilised to fund this expansion programme and to install a fully automated and integrated dealing and accounting platform to support the anticipated volume growth. Under the Investment Agreement, Ekwienox agreed to advance the Convertible Loan and has conditionally agreed to invest a minimum of £1,050,000 pursuant to the Placing. If the Placing is completed, the CL will be converted resulting in the issue of 1,956,222 Ordinary Shares which when added to the Shares to be issued to Ekwienox pursuant to the Placing will give Ekwienox a holding in the Company of approximately 51% of the enlarged share capital. Subject to completion of the Placing, Ekwienox will be granted warrants and subscription rights entitling it to increase its holding to 65% on a fully diluted basis (assuming the number of other shares issued following the Placing is equal to the number of shares the subject of the Company's current existing warrants and options) by subscribing for additional shares at 23 pence per share. If the Placing is not completed, the conversion rights under the CL will remain outstanding and the loan will become repayable on 30 days' notice. Ekwienox Limited is the holding company of a group which provides a comprehensive range of financial products and services, targeting the corporate and end-user market place. With four core competencies: Broking, Asset Management, Structured Finance and the provision of Specialised IT Services, Ekwienox is a one-stop solutions provider for its clients. Ekwienox will provide the Company with significant introductions and benefits within the corporate sector. The Investment Agreement and arrangements thereunder constitute related party transactions for the purposes of the AIM Rules. The Directors, having consulted with Corporate Synergy Plc, the Company's nominated adviser, consider that the terms of the Investment Agreement (including the terms of the CL and Ekwienox' participation in the Placing and subscription rights) are fair and reasonable insofar as the Company's shareholders are concerned. Richard Collier (CEO of The 4Less Group PLC) said: 'We welcome the increased role of Ekwienox in 4Less and believe that their investment in the Company and our plans for co-operation will provide a major impetus to the development of our Group'. Mohammad Kousha (Group Marketing Director of Ekwienox Limited) added: 'Ekwienox is looking forward to working with the 4Less Group to build a significant presence in the retail and corporate FX markets in the UK. Working together we will provide our combined client base with a comprehensive range of services in financial products and services.'

Yeah 4Less is a bit more of a gamble than APT for me, I think 2006 will be Ashpools year, they have turned round into profit, got 2.6p annualised eps with a 9p share price, got Command TV doing business with blue chips like ITV & only valued at £600,000, it won't last long Kenny.....and before they have done deals for £1m & £5.9m with their technolgy.

I agree Outsider and i am happy to hold them into 2006. i only mention my second purchase and a hope of making a few pence selling at 25p+ was so i could top up my Ashpool holding once i had a look at the Final Results. I could sell the small block of FL (and loose again) or site tight and just hope APT do not rise. I do not know about your self Outsider but 2005 as been one heck of a roller coaster ride. With more downs than up and one wipe-out. Heres to 2006 :CHEERS: kenny.

This from the endo-of-day e-mail from UK-Analyst: Interim numbers from currency trader, 4Less, left shares 1p easier at 19p. The market reaction was a touch surprising after solid progress was reported. Investment of some 200,000 pounds is required before the year end, which will mean the company reports a loss at the full year stage, but with the platform in place, the company remained upbeat on its future prospects. 4Less reported a break-even position at the half way stage, finishing the six-month period to 30th September, with net cash of 400,000 pounds. Despite the "increasingly competitive" business environment, the company said that its property division was performing above target. Earlier in the day, a series of buy orders had stripped market makers of over 100,000 shares. Speculation that "smart" money had been accumulating didn't appear to ignite any interest, with the seemingly positive statement ignored by market participants. Will look again at the numbers when I've time.

No can do Outsider, The little bit of money i have left as Ashpools name writen all over it. I don't think there is much holding FL back now. Sold off the none performing bits of the company and baring a market shock we should be on a good one !. kenny.

"The 4Less Group PLC said it has returned to profit in the first half with a pretax profit of 2,000 stg compared to a loss of 476,000 a year earlier. Turnover in the period fell to 168 mln stg from 181 mln previously while administration costs were reduced to 1.4 mln stg from 2.3 mln stg. Looking ahead, the group anticipates a full-year loss due to the costs of investing in its business, but this loss will be "very much less than that incurred in the comparative period last year". The group added its property finance division is performing above target. "
