For those still in TTS, the last set of results are a bit of a mess. They lost £1m in cash due to slow down and R&D. Still hope of better times a long way ahead as it is difficult to sell.

Perhaps those of us who still hold should lobby for a matched bargain facility to be set up. The cancellation document said this: "Whilst the Board believes that the Cancellation is in the interests of the Company and the Shareholders as a whole, it recognises that the Cancellation may make it more difficult for Shareholders to buy and sell Ordinary Shares should they so wish. Accordingly, the Board may decide to setup a matched bargain settlement facility to enable Shareholders to trade the Ordinary Shares. If this facility is set up, Shareholders or persons wishing to trade Ordinary Shares will be able to leave an indication with the facility provider that they are prepared to buy or sell at an agreed price. If the matched bargain settlement facility is able to match that order with an opposite sell or buy instruction, the facility provider will contact both parties and then effect the bargain. If the Board decide to arrange such a facility, details will be made available to Shareholders on the Company's website at www.totalsystems.co.uk."

They report non-recurring items in Q3. Reveunue for yr2010 was £4,286,423 not as stated above. Trade and other receivables has gone down to £855,333 (previous 1,447,326) indicating good cash flow management. Subdued start to this year, with expectation of possible upturn in q3-q4.

You can download the 2010 accounts from the CompaniesHouse website. It will cost a quid. http://wck2.companieshouse.gov.uk/feaa81de6b8cd0fdc3643b15c05d2359/wcprodorder?ft=1

They don't read emails any more. Go and knock on the office door and Terry will answer in his PJ's.

They do exist, but not listed publically. I emailed them about reports, and heard nothing.

Has anyone had any contact with the management of TTS. All seems to have gone quiet, would have expected trading statement by now.

I guess holding on to these shares means having a stake in a London City property at about a third of the price. Not very liquid, but neither is property. I would gamble on some corporate action to release value within 2 to 5 years for a 100 to 200 % Increase. In fact I would suggest TTS would do better selling its software business and becoming a property company.

roastedpeppers....sounds a good idea in principle but will need very good and effective marketing so as to hit target audience each time a de listing is announced. Remember so many PIs have nominee accounts

I am looking at a business idea and want to have peoples opinions as to whether or not they believe it will work. Due o the high number of delisting of companies which I believe have significant value attached to them, I am looking at setting up a holding company. People then transfer their shareholdings into the holding company in return for a class of share in that company of the same value (it has to be of the same value because the assets held (shares in delisting companies) will equal the liabilities (effectively a loan note to all shareholders who transfer their shares). There are two reasons for doing this Firstly, if people transfer their shares over, then a single entity then has a significant shareholding and can at first call try to prevent the delisting (25% or more) Secondly, even if the company cannot stop the delisting then it will still have a stake and can still be a thorn in managements side (thereby giving the management the incentive to buy out this thorn at a later date). The benefits to shareholders are such 1) If shareholders believe there is value, they do not need to sell out their holding, rather they can approach a company at a later date if this value is realised 2) All shareholders will receive up to date information including analysis of results, representation at the AGM and investor presentations 3) If after a period of 12 months the shareholders have not had a return, the company will purchase the shares from the individuals (in effect buying back its loan notes) in retun for the shares of the company. Any comments please

The offer is reprehensible but Im tendering all my shares. I dont fancy holding this when its delisted. ISA holders dont even have an option. They have to accept 26p whether they like it or not. Also why can't they publish the results now and give investors more info to make a decision. We all know how hopeless the full year guidance is with this shower.

This is an interesting read from last years AGM http://www.fool.co.uk/news/investing/company-comment/2009/09/25/an-asset-rich-software-share.aspx?source=isesitlnk0000001&mrr=0.25 Note the question about delisting then.... Fly in the ointment Although Total Systems looks like a slam dunk for value investors, it is worth bearing in mind that no dividends have been paid in the last few years and, of even more importance, Terence Bourne owns approximately 50% of the shares. Another director owns approximately 20%. Having been scarred for life by the recent fun and games at Touchstone (LSE: TSE) -- where the directors are planning to take the company private at what is perceived by many as a very low price -- it is always possible that the directors could decide to take Total Systems private at less than the value of its tangible assets. With 70% of the equity, the directors are in control. When asked about the costs of remaining public the finance director, Granville Harris, said the cost was about £50,000 per annum. The MD also said that potential acquisitions come across their desks approximately once a quarter, and very very general chats about whether he would consider selling the company happen on the same frequency. Winding up this report, I liked the directors as they were happy to answer questions and not in a hurry to wind up the meeting. The offer of the site visit was appreciated. For what it is worth, I do think they are genuinely committed to answering shareholders questions. The last few years have been reasonably dull for Total Systems' watchers. Given the directors don't appear to be thinking about retirement, the next couple of years could also be dull, and the latest trading update was downbeat. Of course, there is always the possibility that the MD does receive an offer for Total Systems in the next month that he cannot refuse, but don't bet your town house in Islington on it. Amazing how the supposed cost of having a listing doubled in a year when they wanted to use it as an excuse for running off the market with all the assets !!

I am really disappointed with Terry... we all knew this was his nest egg and there was a risk of delisting, but to shaft the shareholders after all this time of "understating" is just shocking. A real dark horse if ever there was one.
