|Has anybody on here had an american company contact you recently asking to buy your Harrier shares?|
|Got my CGO cash today and bought more VLK|
|Actually, I think it probably WAS all Mike Langdon't fault! I think it was his tip/ramping way back then that interested me.
At first they were actually a good buy. I bought and sold some at a profit in the early days. Even subscribed to a rights issue if my memory is correct. But then came the fall and I was left holding a tranche. Not a lot, just £3k worth. So, I bottom-drawered them and over the years have been astonished at Mike's ability to keep banging the drum for them - even though they were clearly a totally burnt-out shell and the directors had no intention whatsoever of trying to make money for the shareholdes. It was hilarious to hear him defending them again and again....despite the evidence.
But it's all over now. The fat lady is singing.... And I think a bottle of Penfolds Grange might be the most fitting way to mark the pathetic return on my very poor investment.
Well done to those who got in recently and who made something from it.
Good luck all!|
|Sorry to hear that Soggy. I like Conchango a lot, but do think their float was a bit silly. It basically just created a vehicle to reward their long term employees/directors.|
|Blame wavydavy (Mike Langdon)it's all his fault.|
|Yep! Bought at £4.37 per share on average!|
|Soggy, I take it you held shares in the Co that CGO reversed into?|
|Thanks for the info. And you're right, they never did give a monkey's about shareholders, we were always going to be shafted. No matter what Mike Langdon kept saying over the years.
But we all knew that, and it simply wasn't worth selling (in my case) as it was already written off. But it's the last of my disastrous dotcom decisions to finally bite the dust, so there's a sort of "end of an era" about it for me.
|Takeover closes 06-May, CGO shares to be delisted 07-May, cheques in the post around then I suppose. Sorry to hear you were in from so much higher. My investment, from 19.6p-ish, has been short and only marginally profitable. Bizarre decision to list at a certain price and then sell out at almost exactly the same level after only a few weeks. Somehow I don't think the management gave a flying toss about the shareholders who didn't get their stock from cheap options and awards.
C'est la vie.|
|Ah well, that's the end of an old song for me. £3k invested in the heady days of the dotcom boom - now no longer a paper loss, an actual loss - reduced to £140. When do the cheques arrive?|
|Aazing. Easy money for the MMs, mark it down every day since listing, then open it up at the offer price!|
|They kept it quiet, not a flicker in the share price before hand. None of the usual unexplained rises.|
|Why didn't EMC try and do a deal with Conchango at the 19p placing price that HRR got them at ?|
|I am gobsmacked by the announcement after hours.|
|16.30 results, 16.31 offer statement.......
Had a few HRR, but my certs in CGO never arrived....
Wonder whether they will remember to post my cheque?
|2 months. Doesn't really seem worth it. Bet the open this at 24/21 tomorrow. If not i'm in early doors!!|
|23.1p a share guys.
Listing didn't last long.|
|Well, they came and went bloody quickly eh!!!|
|Thanks for the reply.|

|yes its one for one.
One HRR = one CGO.
Certifates posted weeks ago.
CGO results the week.
For the year ending Dec 2007 I expect revenue of about £35 million and pre tax profits of about £3.3 million|
|Does anyone know whether Harrier shares are to be replaced by certificates in Conchango's name and, if so, is it on a one-for-one basis?

|Housebuilders in freefall today.
|CGO are a fine company but at the moment AIM is dead.|
I took all my money out of Conchango at 22p down to 20p.
I have reinvested this substantial cash pile by shorting the house builders index.|
