|The delisting is a big risk given that the main shareholder has over 60% holding and it is they that called for the vote. They must have agreed with another shareholder, its like putting your money into a blackhole. I think they will get it passed.|
|Sounds like a mess.
Would the resident ramper care to comment?|
|No - the company does not get involved unless it wants to. J P Jenkins matches buyers and sellers. That means trading is infrequent - there have only been 3 bargains in DYS so far this year.
Our only hope in this is Mr. M. H. Dixon who still holds 11%.|
|Presumably this makes it difficult to trade shares as there is no market other than the company?|
|No it doesn't - delisting simply means it is no longer traded on LSE. Sometimes the company will provde a matched bargain trading facility. An example is Dyson (DYS) - now traded on J P Jenkins|
|Surely delisting involves all shares being taken back into private hands at a price. The law protects minority shareholders (in this case the pi) from being taken advantage of, so let's hope common sense prevails|
|If they went from 9.5p and recovered to 28p could be a good buy at this level. £20million turnover and £1mill mcap. It looks like a scare to get cheap shares imo. They just won a grammy too!|
|At the AGM on 1/11/11 the company said it was considering delisting.
On 1/2/12 it announced that it would continue to be listed:
"The board has concluded that at the present time, and for the foreseeable future, that the best interests of all parties are most closely served by retaining its AIM listing".
On the first announcement the shares went from 26p to 9.5p and recovered to 28p after the second announcement.
The problem this time round is that this has been initiated not by the board but by the parent company. That is 65% of shares that will vote for but the 75% of shares required is of those voting and many of the remainder will be in nominee a/cs with no prospect of the vote being excercised.|
|This has been my worst share over last 4 years.They are now making a profit and the share price starts to recover only to announce this.I thought that they said they would not delist last year but cant find the rns? All is never as it seems with this one.STILL RECON SOMEONE WANTS YOUR SHARES|
|tara7 - 13 May 2012 - 15:28 - 323 of 370I research stocks, you tip them>>Shame on you.!what matters and with me being the best tipster on this site by a mile it is nottoo hard :-))|
|Can;t believe anything this lot says,,,personally recon they want your shares and this could be to scare holders into selling.will be holding for now.gla|
|I should have read the rns properly! The co. hold 65% of the shares & only needs 75% to force thru the resolution. Interesting to see what the mkt thinks the buyout price will be today.|
|Does this sound like a management buyout or private investment co? Does anybody know if PI's have a majority stake?|
|well there you go. AGM to vote on delisting. it's a -10 bagger|
|Another award. Some VEY good content coming from pfo, sugest you look at the website you'll see how busy and in demand they are.

|That was then (almost a year ago)... this is now, I think you'll find things have changed. New management, restructured, zero legacy issues, new focus, recovering industry sector utilising pfo services. They have been very busy if you care to look at there website. Foundations seem set for a FULL recovery.
Recuring longterm income from new contract due shortly, this sort of deal secures the financial foundation of the business.

Prime Focus completes pre-pack admin deal
1 March, 2013 | By George Bevir
Prime Focus has completed a pre-pack administration deal to buy some of the assets of its struggling commercials division.
Immediately after Prime Focus Broadcast and Commercials Limited (PFBC) was placed in to administration, Prime Focus Broadcast Limited (PFB) agreed a deal to acquire some of its contracts, business and assets for £385,000.
An undisclosed number of employees will now transfer from PFBC to PFB.
Prime Focus will continue to provide some services for the commercials sector, such as world versioning, but it is not taking on all of the commercials operation.
The company said the administration process would reduce its overall costs by £1m per year.
PFBC's net liabilities had grown from £300,000 in 2012 to £1.3m by the end of January.
Prime Focus said its broadcast business "continues to perform well", and is expected to show year-on-year growth.|
