Company Consolidated Asset Mgmt (Hldgs) PLC TIDM CAMH Headline Disposal of subsidiary Released 07:00 03-Jul-2009 Number 0611V07 RNS Number : 0611V Consolidated Asset Mgmt (Hldgs) PLC 03 July 2009 CONSOLIDATED ASSET MANAGEMENT (HOLDINGS) PLC ("CAMH" or the "Company") Disposal of subsidiary CAMH is pleased to announce the disposal today of its subsidiary, Throgmorton Financial Services Limited ("TFS"), to TFS's management team and other persons engaged in the business of TFS and their respective connected persons (the "Purchasers") (the "Disposal"). TFS carried on an independent financial advisory business based in Northenden, Manchester. CAMH originally acquired TFS from its management team in May 2008. The consideration payable to CAMH in respect of the Disposal comprises deferred payments on the achievement by TFS of certain turnover targets during the one year period following completion of the Disposal. This consideration will be satisfied wholly in cash and any amounts received pursuant to the earn-out mechanism will be applied to general working capital for the development of the Company. Following completion of the disposal, a further payment may become payable by either the Purchasers to the Company or by the Company to the Purchasers dependent on the level of working capital of TFS as at completion as determined by reference to accounts to be prepared following completion. Further, if TFS or its business is sold or certain other exit events occur within two years of completion of the Disposal, CAMH shall be entitled to be paid that amount of the proceeds arising on the exit which exceed £200,000. On completion of the Disposal, the Company has also agreed to withdraw any claims that it may have against those of the Purchasers from which it acquired TFS in May 2008 under the warranties given by those Purchasers at the time of such acquisition, including the claim referred to in note 26 to the audited financial statements of the Company for the year ended 31 December 2008. For the year ended 31 December 2008, TFS recorded turnover of £854,577, a loss before taxation of £2,756 and as at 31 December 2008 had net assets of £160,471. TFS has continued to be loss-making since 31 December 2008. On completion of the Disposal, Mayfair Limited ("Mayfair") agreed to acquire from the Purchasers all of the shares in CAMH in which they were beneficially interested, being 16,435,399 ordinary shares of 0.5p each in the Company, for an aggregate purchase price of £11,384.10. Mayfair holds 58.9% of CAMH and is therefore deemed to be a related party under the AIM Rules. Following completion of the acquisition of the shares in the Company from the Purchasers, Mayfair will hold 64.4% of the issued share capital of CAMH. The Disposal is classified as a related party transaction under the AIM Rules. The independent directors of CAMH (that is, excluding Andrew Wilson who is not regarded as independent for this purpose by virtue of his connection to Mayfair Limited) consider, having consulted with Strand Partners, the Company's nominated adviser, that the terms of the Disposal are fair and reasonable in so far as Shareholders are concerned. In providing its advice to the independent directors of CAMH, Strand Partners has taken into account the independent directors' commercial assessments in respect of the Disposal. Chief executive Simon Banks-Cooper said: "The disposal of TFS will assist the better deployment of our financial and other resources and represents a further stage in the restructuring of the group which the board continues to progress in order to align the assets of the group with the board's ethos and vision."

Another favourite of ARC, "Skin Health Spa" is leaving the PLUS market.... Looks like the end for another Company ARC have been investing people's money in. ARC really is the most incompetent Company I have ever come across in my life. All in my personal opinion of course.........

I pulled together a list a while back of Catalyst and Arc Equities "failures" or fundraisings where an AIM IPO never quite happened (yet anyway). Not all directly connected, but the same bunch involved somewhere along the lines. It's quite long......here goes: Catalyst New Opportunities plc (then Traction Technolgy plc) Double Carbon Battery Company plc (trading, but no IPO) Eastern European Ventures plc Emerging UK Investments plc (removed from AIM last year) Ubet 2win plc (removed from AIM last year) Drug Treatment Holdings plc (trading, but no IPO) Dualglo Technology plc (trading, but no IPO) The Weather Lottery plc (lost 90% of value) Consolidated Vending plc (lost 90% of value) Turnaround Consultancy plc (trading, but no IPO) Europol International plc (trading, but no IPO) Smart Implant Holdings plc (trading, but no IPO) Global E-network Holdings plc (trading, but no IPO) Marlin Group Holdings plc (trading, but no IPO) Britfilms Group plc (trading, but no IPO) Primary Water plc (trading, but no IPO) Worldlink Group plc (trading, but no IPO) PropertyinBulgaria.net plc (in liquidation) Branded Leisure plc (Creditors Voluntary Arrangement) Pathway One plc (a PLUS stock) Viatrade plc (a PLUS stock) Famous Retail Limited (trading, but no IPO) Aerodeon Holdings plc (trading, but no IPO) Dateline Holdings plc (the latest offer from ARC) Valley Schools Group plc (trading, but no IPO) Ashton Penney Holdings plc (lost 90% of value) There are two partially successful companies, that are involved in raising the finance for the above companies: Capital Ideas plc Arc Fund Management Holdings plc Not a full list, but not one of the most successful investment track records around!

Flateric, I have moved on, I can afford to. But that doesn't stop me warning everyone I can about this bunch of muppets, I feel it is my duty. If I can stop anyone else losing money (and anything they touch seems to lose money) then it is worthwhile. I challenge anyone to name one company ARC have floated that is still trading at a premium?... In fact, name one that they have floated and is still within a mere 50% of the float price.... For every one you can point out, I will find 5 that have gone belly up. I know the usual risks for EIS etc stocks, and I can accept a high degree of risk with such products. Their EIS 1 & 2 funds made 18 separate investments, of which 12 have gone belly-up. No investments showing a profit, all those still trading are markedly down. Cash lost is about 85% of the investment made.

I share the concerns over ARC Equities. What they are trying to do is fair enough, but the way they do it is wrong. You do get the feeling that someone knows that 1. Investments are over-priced and 2. They are often businesses without a business model that will fail in 12-18m. Don't get me wrong I'm very much for entrepeneurial companies, but ARC floats offers only ever raise funds for the selling shareholders and not much needed new funds for the start-up companies that they are pedaling. What is very curious is why Lord Ashcroft and City of London Group have invested; maybe it was a condition that Renwick went. However, they have still kept pedaling the same old rubbish. Worldlink was totally ourageous. Dateline was more reasonable. I wonder how many offers Christopher Rowe would genuinely advise friends to take up, in his letters at the front of every offer document?

But it's not "poor", it's completely and utterly totally diabolical. It's so bad that either management are incompetent failures or else there's some sort of deliberate strategy behind their actions. In my opinion, personally, I think that there's something going on here that should be investigated by the authorities.

There is no way it can be a scam!! Arc is AIM-quoted and FSA regulated. They have poor record at picking companies, agreed, although a few do get on AIM at a premium. Learn to take profits. Or maybe only invest on fundamentals and stay away from start ups and pre-IPOs. Move on.

JakNife, I must admit, I hadn't considered it as a scam until you mentioned it, but it is a possibility.... Anything that they put their name to, I will be trying to warn people about the likely outcome given their track record to date. And yes, I am bitter ! FQS

FailedQS, Personally I think that ARC are simply a scam, the frequency with which their companies fail, combined with the manner in which they inflate expectations, and promote companies to private investors at excessive prices strikes me as as too coincidental for the alternative, of complete and utter incompetence, to be possible.

It looks as if Traction Technology is in the final stages of its trading life, yet another disaster from ARC..... I stupidly invested a total of £14k in ARC EIS funds, that is now worth about £3k accoring to ARC's latest valuation (Adjusted for the decline in Traction Tech obviously !!), but in reality these investments are worth nil, as they cannot be sold at any cost as most are not quoted on any market. Most of the companies they "invested" my money in have gone bust within a couple of years, all others are showing a loss. None are showing any profit (And that is circa 20 separate investments over the EIS funds) Despite the warnings on their literature, it is clear that they have been negligent in my opinion, I'm seriously considering takling this up with the FSA.
