It would appear that this is now trading as The Malcolm Group with the EPIC of MAL. I dont know how to set up a new discussion board, but I'm sure someone out there will oblige. Thanks in anticipation.

Extraordinary General Meeting - Approval of resolutions 'The Board of Grampian Holdings plc announces that shareholders voted at today's EGM in favour of the resolutions approving the proposed return of capital to shareholders, subject to Court confirmation, and the change of name of the Company to The Malcolm Group p.l.c. The Board has fixed the price for the cancellation of the ordinary shares at 85.0p per share, representing a premium of 8.3% over the middle market price at the close of business yesterday. The Board will now proceed with an application to the High Court for sanction of a reduction in capital as described in the circular to shareholders dated 21 December 2001. Forms of election should be sent out to shareholders on 22 January 2002 and it is anticipated that the Court hearing will take place on 20 February 2002.'

Announcement... Number:1741Q Grampian Hldgs PLC 18 January 2002 Friday 18 January 2002 Grampian Holdings p.l.c. Extraordinary General Meeting - Trading Update Speaking at today's EGM to approve the proposed return of capital to shareholders and change of name, Sir Donald MacKay, Chairman of Grampian Holdings p.l.c. made the following statement on current trading: "Logistics Despite the slow-down in the economy, and in an increasingly competitive market, the Logistics Division is performing in line with our expectations. Development opportunities in the core warehousing and road distribution operations continue to arise from a combination of organic growth, customer outsourcing and contract re-tendering. We have continued to develop our rail freight operations although these still represent only a small proportion of the Group's overall turnover. Uncertainty surrounding the future of the rail industry, including the administration of Railtrack, however, has adversely impacted confidence levels in the rail network. Recovery of this confidence will be key to realising the full benefits of the Group's substantial recent investment in rail freight activities. Construction Services The Construction Services Division has encountered some volatility in activity levels. Project commencement dates were temporarily delayed during the last quarter of 2001, resulting in a fall in operating levels for plant/tipper hire and contract activity. Accordingly, turnover levels for the full year are likely to be somewhat lower than last year. More encouragingly, the Division has continued to deliver improved operating margins and the start of 2002 has seen a pick-up in orders and strengthening of the order book. Summary Overall, the Group is performing satisfactorily given the difficult conditions facing many of our customers. We are continuing to make progress in improving the quality of the Group's earnings by focusing on better operating margins and containing costs."

What is the starting time of todays EGM and when will there be an announcement regarding the share buyback details if that is approved?

'N' Non Protected Portfolio A non-protected portfolio transaction or a fully disclosed portfolio transaction. Normally a transaction of a number of stocks dealt with by one market maker at an agreed discount to the market price. So looks to be a buy.

The 80-90 offer does look low, however they do state that they will pay a premium to the market price. So hopefully at the time of the EGM the price will be 86-90, forcing them to offer 92p. Will they purchase all my holding or just a percentage? as shown in there example. By way of illustration only, the following table demonstrates what the effect of the Basic Proposal will be, at different Cancellation Prices, for a holder of 1,000 Ordinary Shares: Cancellation Ordinary Shares cancelled Cash Ordinary Shares Price received retained 80p 483 #386.40 517 85p 454 #385.90 546 90p 429 #386.10 571 Anyone have an idea what the value of our remaining shares, would be.

I agree with you CWA1. The cashack figure is set too low. It is really just in the current trading range. Last prices today bid 82p offer 87p. I also think we are still looking some time ahead. By the time a court hearing has been set, the wait could be ages. However I think the figures qouted on the rns are for illustrative purposes only, so the offer could indeed be higher when the time comes. js.

Think the cashback figure is set too low. I will be going for underallocation if that(90p) is the best offer they can make. Think it is worth significantly more and will consider topping up if there is any slippage in share price at all. Thoughts of the board on the buyback figure?

senso, No, the RNS says it will probably be treated as a partial disposal - hence CGT if in profit.

Looking very,very promising.Might be a good idea to top up with a few more even now.This price will look silly in the not to distant future,I think. It has been a long time in coming but I hope it's going to be worth the wait. Happy Christmas all!

CWA1. I can confirm that the property deal is fine, had this e mail responce last week to that question. "Yes sorry the property deal has not collapsed but post sept 11 delays have set in (not ours) it is still our intention to get a circular out just as fast as we can." Jacsom, You still holding PRM also?

Hi all Yes,it is very frustrating isn't it? However I feel that,assuming the property deal doesn't collapse,there is still a very healthy return to be made here.I think that after waiting all this time it is probably close to being the worst time to sell out now. I have been told by someone who works there that the Malcolm side-haulage,freight,distribution etc.,is still busy and has had no sign of a downturn,which is very encouraging. The fact that most of us are sitting on a profit,albeit small,is significantly better than a lot of people in the market at the moment.Nice dividends as well.It could always be better I agree :-) Off to tear some more hair out waiting for an announcement....

Thanks 8 ball. That is probably wise advice. I will take it and hang on in there a bit longer. After all we have waited this long I shall give it a few more weeks. js.

Jacsom As you know from iii I am also fed up and e mailed them several times. I could sell and make a small profit, all from the last two dividends. However let's just wait a little longer, still feel we could make another 15% on our investments.

I am getting a bit fed up with the waiting and I am very tempted to take my miniscule profit on grmp and put it somewhere it has a chance of earning a bit more. js.

Both articles said there would be an announcement this week. Both articles turned out to be wrong. How long can the board put of returning this moeny to investors? Surely we should have had some comment since September?
