Do you have anything that you'd like to add to this thread? It lists all of the various Arc/Catalyst failures:
|It is high time ARC Equities is seriously investigated by FSA. It seems obvious that they adopt sharp pactices and the investors need protection from such companies.|
I'm in the same position as you, I have CVD shares via the ARC EIS fund investment I stupidly made.
If ARC have sold shares to EIS customers whilst picking up an advisory fee at the same time from Con Vending, without telling the EIS customers, isn't this illegal? It would appear to be at best a huge conflict of interest to me.
I would be interesed to see what the FSA have to say about this principle of the ARC business plan.....
So in theory ARC sell say £100,000 of shares to a client, pick up say a £10,000 backhander from another client for selling them, and the shares then bomb.... Where was the due diligence, and why would they worry about technicalities like that if making a wedge in commission anyway?...
This company stinks...........
Without too much delving, it would appear that they did the same thing with Traction Technology, another one that has bombed.......|
|hgope these go to nothing at least i can get tax releif on the loss
as i foolishly subscribed to arc equiites eis groth fund in which this was the biggest holding.
i have some real concerns over arc and their businrss model.
if you look at any share they offer you they appear to have picked up the share
in exchange for an advisory fee which is normally a 10th or less of the price at which the shares are offerd.|
|Well its not being ramped very well then from 4p to .2p in a year ! I will keep it tracked and watch with interest. I guess the deal announced the other day is worth something but as FE says not much info. Good luck.|
|because it's being ramped|
|so why is this starting to go up then?|
|Not sure how much revenue will come from them.
Nor does it say if these little booths are paid for, leased, or just managed. Or did I miss that?
I don't hold, just thought I'd comment.|
|Company Consolidated Vending plc
Headline Re Agreement with Cybervitrine SA
Released 14:39 15-Apr-08
Consolidated Vending plc
('Consolidated Vending' or 'the Company')
Consolidated Vending plc subsidiary, Snap Digital Imaging Ltd signs
Distribution Agreement with Cybervitrine SA
Snap Digital Imaging Ltd (Snap), the photobooth operating subsidiary of Consolidated Vending Plc has signed a distribution and operating agreement with Cybervitrine for its photobooth, the Fotopod. The agreement gives Snap the exclusive right to sell and operate the Fotopod in the UK.
The Fotopod has been specifically designed for small spaces and to provide access for all. Cybervitrine claims the Fotopod is the 'world's smallest photobooth' at 0.25m. With increasing demands to ensure access for all the Fotopod provides a facility suitable for the widest range of disabilities.
Whilst it is not possible at this stage to quantify the possible effect of the Cybervitrine Agreement on future revenues, the Directors believe that the Agreement will provide Snap with a competitive edge in its product offering to its customers.
Andrew Coll, CEO, Consolidated Vending plc said:
'We are delighted to be working with Cybervitrine. We view the Fotopod as an ideal enhancement to our booth portfolio. Minimising space usage and providing access for all are key factors in our market today and in the future and the Fotopod brings genuine product differentiation and enhancement which will benefit our customers and users alike.'
Commenting, Philippe Barcelo, Directeur Generale, Cybervitrine SA said:
'I am delighted to have secured this agreement with Consolidated Vending. We have had great success with the Fotopod in France with over 600 machines operating nationally. We fully expect our relationship with Consolidated Vending to provide similar success in the UK.'

|the business model is imho feeble|
|Typical share by Arc Equities, AGAIN! They should be investigated by FSA!
Anyway glad I never bought these, but remember them recomending it so strongly to me...|
|See another PI has thrown in the towel this morning.
Having lost so much I'm now inclined to await developements.|
|top - tru CAPT will be dumping out of this 1 soon it's a stated aim of theirs
|A simple rule to follow: What Arc Equities are selling - you don't want to be buying|
|I'd watch out here. It's an ARC Equities float. Promising business on the face of it, but severely under-capitalised. Should have raised more funds when floating on AIM rather than all the connected parties dumping shares shortly after float. Still lots more big holders waiting to sell as well.|
|online spread sell @ 0.55p
great time to get in, these will take off shortly..|
|online limits much improved..buy 500k at 0.6p
sell 150k at 0.55p.|
|looks like we shall see the earlier highs tested, phoned my broker re these, big seller dumping so mms shifting a fair quantity of stock..
once thats clear i suspect we will be back trading at the 1.5-2p range.|
|i have knowing, although i have not at present.|
|MTV have you noticed RAF? Contract news today.|
|Moved up again, level 2 1 v 1... Plenty more upside here..|
|Nice to see MM's eating up 95k shares at touch price, with no effect on share price
Still holding my WHOG - 1 week to go - will there be anything positive before the deadline ??
We all know how the MM's play their games.....|
|Hi Dell, negative again...kiddies rides is the way forwards...try buying some, you might make some money..Good to see you again..|
|MotiveTV - Do you just make your figures up?
I think you'll find there are circa 260mln shares in issue, not 200mln as you state.
Also, isn't this company stuffed now that loads of photo booths are in storage, since loss of the Snap contract, due to pricing pressure from competitors?
Surely the bigger players can just discount competing tenders until CVD's main business gets squashed...
All IMHO, DYOR etc.|
