|Interesting, JakNife. I haven't seen one of these reports in many years.|
|First progress report here:
password is aN35KM
The report notes that the secured creditors are not getting repaid in full, unsecured creditors will only get a payment as a consequence of there being a "Prescribed Part". Shareholders will get nothing.|
|PwC have circulated administration proposals today, the details can be read online here:
The password is: mt72bw
slide 7 of "Albemarle & Bond Holdings Plc - in Administration - Administrators proposals dated 16 May 2014"
is quite clear:
As there are insufficient funds to pay the unsecured creditors in full, there will not be any distribution to the shareholders of the Company.
|from the website....
by sending an email with 'meeting' in the Subject Line to email@example.com (a spam filter will discard emails without the word 'meeting').
I receive them direct.|
|Ok David. I sent the email via the 'contact us' section on the website.|
|Barnal....they are worthless. I promise you there is no surprise that I am aware of coming this way.
Zendik...Thank you I will watch out for it.|
|To close a short?|
I have messaged you as requested.|
|I am sorry to ask but why would you buy shares.
I thought they were worthless ?|
|Zendik....excellent. You can contact me via the mellomeeting.co.uk website and I will mail the offer back to you with the details of my broker. All genuine.|
How much per share are you offering? I have 94,819 shares.|
|Does anyone here actually have a shareholding in ABM as I would potentially be interested in buying your shares? I will only be prepared to pay a small amount but certainly better than nothing which is what shareholders will be getting and I would like about 120,000 if possible.|
|macmoss - SADLY, WHEN THE ADMINISTRATION IS CONCLUDED, WITH NOTHING I STRONGLY SUSPECT, NOT EVEN THE "LIMITED VALUE" PREVIOUSLY ENVISAGED BY THE BOARD. HOW A PAWNBROKER'S BUSINESS OF ALL COMMERCIAL UNDERTAKINGS DURING THE RECENT ECONOMIC DOWNTURN COULD HAVE BEEN PERMITTED TO RUN SO GRIEVOUSLY AGROUND BEGGARS BELIEF HIGHLIGHTING INCOMPETENCE AND MISMANAGEMENT ON THE GRAND SCALE.|
|How does this affect share holders?
Financial Times: Promethean Investments has come to the rescue of troubled pawnbroker Albermarle & Bond and pulled it out of administration.|
|If only one could have seen it coming

dell1234 provided this link, thanks
It seems a decent write up of events re the share price V the price of GOLD
Bottom line is that there is MASSIVE competition now re buying/selling GOLD in the high street
The share price of A&B have been heavily geared towards GOLD
The price of GOLD could still go a lot lower from where it now sits
Sub $1000 for example chartwise is not impossible
Such a drop would take this share to circa 90p or less
Wii Mr market take a -ve or +ve forward view of a GOLD drop re A&B ..... we will see
Thus far it seems the answer is -ve

GOLD price drop is used as an excuse
Director sells were the true performance guide|
|Good luck with CPR. That thing defies gravity!|
|RNS: "H&T Group PLC Termination of Talks". "On 7 April 2014, H&T Group plc ("H&T") announced that it had submitted a proposal to the administrators of Albemarle & Bond Holdings plc ("A&B") regarding a potential purchase of some of A&B's assets. H&T confirms that these discussions have now terminated."
|What is the boy plunger EK's next target? CPR?|
|Bad day for staff...
A statement from the joint administrators is below:
"Our priority is to keep all pledged items safe and available for redemption as normal. We plan to sell all or part of the business to protect as many jobs as possible and we have already paid, or will be paying all staff - including accrued bonuses - as normal in March. Also, all landlords have been paid. However, some redundancies may be necessary depending on the outcome of efforts to sell the business. Every branch will initially remain open as sale discussions progress. This also enables customers to continue to redeem their goods as normal as they pay off their loans.
The group and PwC are doing all that they can to support employees through this difficult time and will work with government agencies in order to support anyone affected by potential redundancies."|

|A curious situation as a large proportion of the pledge book technically is the property of the pawnor, until the expiry of the redemption date.
So I guess the shops will continue to 'trade' for another year to allow expiry of all the pledges?
Much better to flog the pledge book off wholesale to another player with experience of handling it...
Step in HAT?|
|Last one out of head office leave a not in the drawer like chancellor did "no more money left"!|
