If you post an email address I will send a scanned copy if this is of interest..appreciate you may not want to put this on bulletin board and please be advised I only look at this board irregularly - however if of interest I will do my best to minimise time before responding so you can remove email address ASAP.
|Thanks David - Was that a letter to all shareholders? Didn't get one yet.|
Just had a letter this morning from Simon.
Some corporate action kicking off. Need to digest and understand. THe wording would appear to be setting us up for the likelihood of nothing due to the 'complexity' of the reorganisation or something to that effect......
|In the USA now, I see ... Untold riches ahead ... hxxp://www.bartercardusa.com/News.html|
|David - Yes several questions - if you can through any light on it. Simon Barker would appear to be the man with the answers. Keep us posted if you get any info. Thanks.|
Only just caught up with whats been going on. Will have a dig around to see if I can find out any more. Needless to say, not heard a squeak from the company. I suppose once delisted, we smaller shareholders become irrelevent though I would have thought we still have some right to be kept informed.
It looks like Wayne has cashed in and on to pastures new. It would be nice to know what he recieved for his majority stake.
I need to reconcile Bartercard International/bartercard UK relationship too...
|I contacted the company but cannot get any response.
Anybody else care to see if they can get any information about this deal and what it means to shareholders. Also I could not get a copy of annual report - if there is one.|
|Don't know .. I only found out about this on the net .. Did anybody get notification about this deal?|
|How can I get my share certificate or sell the shares?|
|Bartercard Australia Buys Bartercard Ltd.
Published on 03. Apr, 2012 by King of the Wild Frontier in Industry News
0 Bartercard Australia (controlled by Brian Hall, Trevor Dietz and Tony Wiese) has acquired the entire 60% stake of the majority shareholder of Bartercard Ltd (UK); the International licensor of the Bartercard business to business barter trade exchange and global cashless payment system.
Founded in 1991 by Wayne Sharpe, Brian Hall and Andrew Federowsky today sees Wayne Sharpe step down from the role of Executive Chairman and CEO of the Bartercard Group of companies now after selling his majority stake.
Bartercard has been operating for over 21 years in Australia and has 55,000 international business members trading in 6 countries over $1billion a year.
Bartercard Australia team has plans to continue to invest in transactional based technology to make it easier and more convenient for business members to barter trade. Brian Hall says, "We also hope to ignite the international expansion program into other countries to create more travel and import/export opportunities for members worldwide." Hall further says, "We are looking forward to the challenge ahead that is to make Bartercard as well known to business owners as Visa and Mastercard by becoming the noncash global trading currency of the world!"
Wayne Sharpe, who has led Bartercard since inception and humble beginnings on the Gold Coast, Australia , will concentrate all his efforts in the development of his exciting new carbon trading company called, Carbon Trade Exchange (CTX), which is based out of Sydney, Australia. Hall says "Wayne is hoping CTX will gain a lot of momentum to become a global player through his concentrated focus and with an expected boost of business as a result of the introduction of the carbon tax scheduled to start in Australia in July, 2012."
Although Bartercard started in Australia the parent company moved to the UK over a decade ago when Wayne relocated to London. Bartercard European headquarters will continue to be led by UK CEO Simon Barker, and the new majority owners have big plans for expansion via their core franchising/licensing model into the UK and European markets. Bringing the ultimate ownership 'back home' will help deliver a bright new future for Bartercard globally according to its outgoing CEO.
"Australians have played a huge role in Bartercard's global expansion" says Wayne Sharpe. "It's with great pride I look back on the past 21 years and I have no doubt that the new ownership will invigorate growth, I look forward to seeing the next 21 years." On CTX he says "the opportunity to bring my skills and experience to the huge challenge of Global Warming is my next challenge- and one I look forward to with enthusiasm".|
|Anyone still holding paper had any updates from the company?
Nice new website....
|Yes - although she still doesnt seem to 'get it'.
Interestingly, at 2:20 on the video, a guy walks past in the background with what looks like a bazooka.....(:-0
|Re. my post 1615 above ... when I posted it they had not included the video of the interview on the site ... it is there now if you want to see Wayne live ... did well I think.|
|Yes David ... but I also not that in the intro on the home pages of sites, the number of countries is now 9 ... whereas it used to be 12 + ... however the number of members is stated as 75000 ... whereas it used to be 55000.|
|i like the bit where it states
'Given recent global economic developments, Bartercard is proving totally relevant. Its phenomenal growth in the UK market over recent months is testament to this.'
|Wayne on Sky:
|Yes, these were once [email protected]! But with the share consol and then some more under BRTR, unless you had volumes of these, I'm afraid probably swallowed up in the consol.|
|Not sure - you could check with: [email protected]d.com :)|
