smithie6: Any guesses as to what CUP might do now ?
bubble pricker: J777J, you are clueless. Why would Griffiths invest at a much higher price to see his investment collapse in value, so he can end up with a cash shell? If that was his goal, he could have simply set up a cash shell on his own or bought one. It is funny how people, instead of realising the error of their ways, keep going on about other irrelevant matters and blaming third parties for their losses. They also keep going on and on about their beloved stock, no doubt J777J is still holding his position, until the bitter end. Let me give you a new prediction: CUP, under its new guise of an "investment" company will whittle away all its cash on director's emoluments, consultancy fees and bad investments until nothing is left. You can still save what you have left now. J777J was trumpeting the business prospects of Cupid. He was trumpeting that the market cap, at around 70p, was less than cash plus expected deferred payments. I and others explained a hundred times that is not the way you value a business, and that in any case the deferred payments will not materialise. When the share price failed to rise, J777J blamed shorters, instead of realising that there might be something wrong with the future prospects of the business. The regrettable thing in this whole story is that my short was forced closed last year due to lack of available borrow. I took a small profit, but I missed out on the massive drop, so my only gratification is being vindicated.
bubble pricker: J777J, you are an utter fool. I told you over one year ago, the deferred consideration will not materialise. I told you CUP have declining revenues and no business prospects. I hope you lost a good amount of money here to teach you a lesson.

someuwin: There's a difference between discount to NAV and discount to CASH. CUP will have £18m CASH to spend or return to shareholders. Current mkt cap £12.5 "The Company will effectively become a well capitalised cash shell with approximately GBP18 million that can be utilised for new opportunities in line with our proposed investing policy or returned to shareholders."
the monkster: CITY FINANCIER Richard Griffiths yesterday emerged as a significant shareholder in Edinburgh dating site business Cupid. Griffiths, who founded investment bank Evolution in 2000 before setting up boutique investment firm ORA Capital Partners in 2005, owns a 4.53 per cent stake in Cupid according to a stock exchange announcement. The filing followed a purchase that took his holding above the 3 per cent level at which ownership needs to disclosed. The 3.2 million shares, held via Seren Capital Management and Cream Capital – which are controlled by Griffiths – are worth around £1.1 million at Cupid's current share price. Shares in the firm have almost halved over the past year. Griffiths was also a significant shareholder in Aberdeen-based oil and gas firm Eland when it floated in 2012. Earlier this year it was revealed that activist investment group Kestrel Opportunities has also increased its stake in Cupid. Shares in Cupid closed up 0.25p at 36.75p.

Lol plmval 26 Jul'13 - 20:36 - 3325 of 3326 0 0 That is hardly new news ... see article below btw did Ennismore pay for the BBC journalist's travel or other expenses???? As some other poster mentioned,this programme was clearly made a while back and is not telling us anything new. FT.com Cupid news 22/7/13 Break-up leaves Cupid seeking fresh start Breaking up can be easier than you think, as investors in Cupid have found. Shareholders of the Edinburgh-based company have watched a part of the business run off with another man – taking two-thirds of its revenues and just over half its earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation with it. The "other man" was not your textbook milkman or personal trainer. It was Cupid co-founder and former chief operating officer Max Polyakov, who bashed out a deal worth £45.1m for the "casual dating" side of the business – a genre that includes the online adverts promising instant gratification in your area. The initial announcement that Cupid was in discussions with "third parties" came out at the same time as a whopping profits warning, to the alarm of some market watchers. That one of the third parties then turned out to be someone who set up Cupid in 2005, and still owned a 15 per cent stake in it, stirred them up more. None of this is against the rules. If Cupid had entered into discussions about a sale, it had to tell the market, even if that coincided with a profit warning. The disposal is not the first time that Cupid has been in the limelight in recent months. Its shares dropped by two-thirds from 114p to 49p in March after the company denied that it was duping lonely customers by teasing them with messages from pretty young things and promising more if they signed up. An independent report from KPMG exonerated the group, but the share price continues to hover around 75p. Cupid says that the deal means it has left the sleazy "casual dating" end of the market. The slimmed down business has a chance to improve its reputation. It needs to, otherwise investors will decide to break their own relationship with the company too. ps My personal view is this company will now have an mbo.
j777j: Talks have been ongoing since may 29th.... 29 May 2013 Cupid plc Comment regarding share price movement and trading update Share price movement The Board of Cupid plc (AIM: CUP) notes recent movements in the share price of the Company and confirms that the Company is in discussions with third parties which may lead to an offer for Cupid's casual dating business. There can be no certainty as to whether any offer will be forthcoming. Logic would have it that with 6 weeks having passed something is clearly going on.
