|I tell you something Jugger
If i was pat and i had tried to contact Daley and Wilson without success or been fobbed off by some non existent secretary i would be in in Cambridge at 8 o'clock Monday morning banging on the doors of their ivory tower.|
|Black, you are right he has taken everything he can out of the business, for only 1 person, but I am still intrigued, why good investors like pat, have allowed themselves to be his wallet!|
|Its not about improving companies or adding value. At the end of the day its about earning as much as you can from the situation fate has landed you in and that's exactly what he does.
All this grumbling about what he has done and how he has failed misses the point. To him "failure" has bought more money than he could have earnt anywhere else in three lifetimes. This is what people don't seem to understand about this company,its not failing Daley it's run by him for him and he milks it for all its worth it seems . It's pretty typical AIM. surely no one still thinks, going on past or present performance, that this company is still being run with its stated aim of returning shareholder value ?? .......lol|
|WHY TAKE OVER HARTEST ANS SACK ALL THE COMPETENT STAFF??EGOSimple, he thought he could walk on water, someone name one company he has purchased, and improved|
|CTBuyer paying up from 7p to 7.5pMaybe Ekt is about to win their first decent contract for Checkit?Doubt it..what has Daley done in 15 years to add any value here?He has sold off some great assets for a pittance to pay for a disastrous acquisition and a disastrous move from China which cost millions You DO NOT BUILD A GREAT COMPANY BY UNDERINVESTING AND CUTTING COSTSWHY TAKE OVER HARTEST ANS SACK ALL THE COMPETENT STAFF??Pointless and expensive|
|Still no reply from John wilson by telephone or emailI will be looking forward to voting vs all resolutions at the next AGMI will also look to meeting D and A next year to make sure BOD remuneration is cut and no bonus for Daley as Checkit is an obvious failure as is DaleyDaley once asked me why not one institution backed him during his tenure and why 90pct of private investors had sold out..you couldn't make it up!! And yet he thinks he's done a bloody good job deserving of a 100k bonus!!|
|The family silver continues to be sold|
|How times have changed. this company used to say it fixed broken companies. Now after many years of trying it has failed to make any money from wallace despite a 1,2m turnover. What a damning admission to finally say "its contribution was not material to the Group." very much like Daleys then.|
|More growth by acquisition eh ?
A million £ business sold for 300k ? I suppose it will keep Daley in wages for another year....just|
I said that years ago, this was always a private company simply because if it was public no one would stand for what has gone on here. Paradoxically. because of what has gone on it will always be private now. Pats best chance is to sell to D&A or Perloff/Kinder while he can IMHO. I'n fairness Daley knew the PI's might topple him so he dreamt up the JSOP that gave him an unbeatable amount of votes so even had the PI's banded together they wouldn't have won. Judith knew that and that's why she sold up,its certainly the reason i sold up, the reality is it's not worth the bother, there are hundreds of tin pot companies like this.|
|One thing that comes to mind on this thread, is that Daley and his team must love seeing how much, the independent shareholders fight, that has always been the problem, his divide and rule has been perfect, if when all this started to go south had all of the smaller shareholders stood together, the company would not be the shambles it is today. That's my opinion, at one time you held enough and had enough contacts to make a difference, but the time has passed now just suck it up, it is now a private company posing as a public.Well done Mr Daley you have won, and I doff my hat to you.|
|had enough I am selling my last 700k or so. First 100 plus went this afternoon.
|Don't buy any more miners specAnd u can do better with your time than post here daily whilst holding no shares!!Daley will be planning his Ekt bonus in the face of Checkit failing....only him!!Off to call Barry nowCiou|
I don't invest in the AIM anymore pat, it's a mugs game. I have my own life and business to lead without propping up the likes of Daley and Co.
What i would say though is...If i bought into this stock and continued to buy in to this stock like you i wouldn't spend 24/7 moaning about my own choice. There is only one person in control of your buy /sell button and it's not Daley.|
|Haha v true blackss?|
|My inclination is now to abandon this thread. I don't really think anyone has anything else to say ? It will of course still be here but lets face it...if i moderate the nonsense there would be nothing left :-)|
|I think this has reached an end again dont you pat|
|Keep buying fcr spec|
|Yea well we sort of got the jist now thanks pat :-)
I think you are still missing the point here. This is a company run for the directors by the directors. For whatever reason the major shareholders are happy with that.
whatever Daley does he does with the full backing of the board and going by the last AGM, 99% of those that bothered to vote.
What goes on here is hardly a surprise to anyone who follows this company. You are not prepared to use your votes or position as a major shareholder to do anything about it. You seem happy that this will rise to 15p which means Daley is about to more than double your investment !! Daleys incompetence as a director is only matched by your own as an investor.|
|Keith has been chairman for many years..under his tenureship Ekt has failed on all frontsHe was in charge of strategic planning and acquisitionsHe wasted millions on Hartest and once that failed he should've stepped down as Chair or been forced out by the BODSince then he has had nothing to do but to remain Chair the BOD have given him control of Checkit to justify his existence on the BODThey should of spent his 300k remuneration on a new CEO for checkit instead of keeping Keith on the BODKeith has failed to win any substantial contracts for checkit and should now step down and let someone with a great track record join the BOD and make a success of CheckitWhy are the BoD investing in failure??|
|Why doesn't Barry post here anymore?If he is taking the directors to court for contempt of court why doesn't he tell us?What is the punishment for this sort of crime?And what evidence does Barry have?Maybe daley will be pleased he has another excuse for another failing.."checkit is doing worse than expected due to time in court with Barry"!!!Is there anything Daley has done well at Ekt? Will we get a return on 5m gbp ploughed into checkitIf Barry does take them to court again it may mean another delay to Daleys next bonus..can't be seen to be taking dividends away from shareholders for his own gain!!"The dividend is sacrosanct "..now its "my bonus is sacrosanct"|
|As you say the company had considerably less shares in issue when it was offered 10p and it also had more divisions. Since then Daley has been turning the company into cash. remember its not profit that's been paying down debt, it's the sale of Agar.
The real puzzle is D&A who put a stooge on the board and have sat back and watched Daley cream off the cash and pile money into a white elephant with no reported sales of any significance, this after D&A effectively rescued them from going bust not long ago.|
|I also bought in at 4 and 5p to average from a bad average priceI do think at 5p there is value here|
|JuggerGood questionI think the management here is the worse on AimAndy the FD is competent though imhoHowever the core business of Bulgin I believe is worth more than the current mkt capI think out shares will get to 15pDon't forget we got a 10p offer when we had 9m of debt(with less shares admittedly)You ask how Keith has got away with itHe has perloff in support whose stake is irrelevant to him so he supports daley..also has been paid much rent from ektAnd kinder supports him cos he is an old school buddy..although kinder must realise the huge damage daley has done to our company and share price Not sure what they both think of daley getting a 90k bonus for achieving nothing though Problem is daley sacks ned who don't pay him excessively so he eventually get the right men who just pay him ridiculous bonuses and salaries and LTIPDaley is 3m quid richer and shareholders are 80pct poorer|
