I agree Norbert - the previous directors were ambitious, but overlooked the essentials

Red Army. They are ambitious but unfortunately very capital constrained. Also some of their ambition appears to have had to take a back seat somewhat whilst they got the business back on an even keel.Patience now needed.

I would be more positive if I thought that they were more ambitious and less conservative.

Yes, thank you Norbert. They had to take the business in this direction - maybe there's light at the end of the tunnel

Many thanks NC. There could be exciting times ahead for the company and it's shareholders.

I was pleased to attend the C21 AGM this morning along with just 2 other private investors.After the formalities, the Board kindly gave a presentation of the last years results / events including a detailed Q&A lasting over an hour. The Board should be commended for sparing their time to engage with retail investors like this. The last 12 months can be summarised as challenging on numerous fronts including resolving the remaining issues arising from the RSL acquisition back in 2015, a major reorganisation of the business including their HQ moving from Croydon to the Midlands and a review of their technology by Dr Andy Houghton.The RSL acquisition, whilst having been far more problematic than anticipated is ,however, clearly bearing fruit and the Board have high aspirations for their passenger business going into 2017 and beyond. Margins are also higher in the passenger business and the market is larger than the fleet market.The move to the Midlands has worked out "better than expected" and was instigated in part by the location of some of their Clients. The new HQ has helped instigate a new culture and a move away from the "old way of doing things". There have been various staff changes due to the relocation although this appears more of a positive than a negative.Andy Houghton undertook a root-and-branch review of their technology on joining the business last year and appears well respected and key to the business staying ahead of the curve in the rapidly evolving works of technology / IoT etc.C21 in their new role as a system integrator rather than a seller of bits of kit (as it was in the past) has ensured they distinguish themselves from the likes of Pettards, Indigovision , Synetics etc and they have started to meet with an increasingly open door as clients want a trusted system integrator to design, install and maintain complex security / passenger information / fleet management systems and hence effectively take away the potential headache if trying to integrate systems themselves.Annualised savings of £1.4m can be expected from Q1 2017 onwards.International sales are around 10% of Group revenue and reflect fleet client's needs where they have international businesses. The Group's core business remains within the U.K.Cash is a clear issue and Group finances are "delicate", however, this is being carefully managed and shareholders / Directors are very supportive. Clients are also being increasingly accommodating with respect to the small mcap and relative financial constraints of the company where they want C21 as their supplier of choice.Whilst some larger projects (if won) would have some challenging working capital issues for the Group, management are keen to capitalise on their recent successes and ensure upward momentum is maintained so one can assume further Director loans or other short term funding may be likely. An equity raise won't be done at the current valuation.No current plans to re-brand the business although RSL already rebranded under 21st Century. Some potentially exciting new business coming through in the form of car park guidance systems where the group is already working with Idox. The Board seem very pleased to have Nick Lowe as the new FD and he came across well although had limited input. Glenn still involved part time (business development etc).Whilst I was quite sceptical going into the meeting having been a long term shareholder (albeit I have not met with mgt for the last 3 years), there was a clear air of tempered positivity and I expect to see further contract wins materialise over the course of this year and beyond.This is very much a case of investors needing to look beyond the 2016 numbers which are, by the Boards own admission, very disappointing but not reflective of the potential of the underling business. There is still a lot for management to prove here and caution is needed but the risk/reward looks attractive to me. http://www.21stplc.com/en/investors/reports-and-presentations/I can disclose I hold shares in C21.

It seems Robert's family own close to 6% between them. Worth looking into imho."Other members of Mr Millington's immediate family hold on aggregate 2.695 million shares. This is a voluntary disclosure as it is not required under the Disclosure Guidance & Transparency Rules."The phone number given is a London number, I gather, but I'm unfamiliar with UK numbers. There are lots of Robert Millingtons' in the UK. One lives in Putney. Age around 54. Wife Virginia. Daughter Gabrielle.

zoolook, yes I have followed this company every week - long after I sold, as I thought that a listed company would be able to fund acquisitions via fundraising.I believe I posted on here my warnings as PG sold his shares.

Go back on this board and there was much incredulity expressed at peter gyllenhammar selling down in the teens. Lesson learnt. I'd be wary of betting against him again

zoolook, thankfully I haven't held C21 for well over 10 years. I did well in the late 90's when Toad was seen as an IT company and benefited from the dot com bubble. After Jennings bought his brother-in-law's company C21 I had hopes of expansion as the sector needs consolidation with many small companies competing on low margins. TGP/C21 bought another small company which was a flop so they gave up on acquisitions. I really can't see this going very far.

IIRC they made significant cash purchases when they joined so have skin in the game. 6.5p would be welcome from where we are now. They say their strategy is starting to work in the statement and it is easy to be cynical with those results. I know turnarounds can be difficult but if the turnaround isn't evidenced by improved results within 5 years i.e. next year then that is too long. Hopefully currently it is just darkest before the dawn. My holding has shrivelled to such an extent it is hard to care which I know is wrong

When the Singleton and Robinson partnership joined in October 2013 the share price was 6.5p. They were each awarded options of 3,846,154 shares exercisable at 6.5p from last October.

Not good results. Admin cost increase of over 15% from 6 to 7 million did a lot of the damage.

At least there still winning contracts even £400k over 3 years, as they say every little helps. IMO it will be an interesting year for the company and hoping to hear more contact wins in the coming months. Glen Robinson health problems?

Small caps prices are moved on small volumes as you can see so dont raise your hopes up about bids and takeovers etc. Nothing more than that at present.
