I notice that this is was effected by way of a 'cash box' structure. This can be a devious device to circumvent the pre-emption rules. I don't hold CBP but still monitor them, following the shoddy service I received from Suffolk Life.

Typo - no expert in company law, but as I understand it, the provisions for disapplication of preemption rights are specifically designed to prevent the board getting together with major shareholders to screw the otherwise powerless small shareholders. If they don't have specific authorisation to issue that percentage, there should have been an open offer. I don't hold here - only follow because they hold my sipp - so am not too bothered, but if you or any other holder are, a letter to the AIM regulator, copy the FCA, Curtis and the Nomad, would probably be the appropriate next step. I thought Nomads existed to stop this sort of thing...

22% placing but no pre-emption for ordinary shareholders as they consulted with the majority of their major institutional shareholders (who are no doubt getting shares at 210p). That's OK then? To me it seems to make a mockery of company law, but what do I know.

Investors might like to check the employee reviews on glassdoor.co.uk Of course, these may be fake and/or a disgruntled minority. However, I've found Glassdoor gives a reasonably reliable insight into companies and in general the better performing companies have better Glassdoor reviews. CBP scores 1.8/5.0, which is poor. Only 41% approve of the CEO Only 8% recommend to a friend. That's really poor. There were two reviews last month from former employees. 26 Sep 2018 "If you don’t want to be valued, this is the company for you." Former Employee - Anonymous Employee Doesn't Recommend Neutral Outlook Disapproves of CEO I worked at Curtis Banks full-time (More than 3 years) Pros Salary People (not senior managers) Cons IT system not good enough Senior managers don’t value their staff Have grown too rapidly, processes not in place 22 Sep 2018 "Grew fast, fell quickly" Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Bristol, England Doesn't Recommend Negative Outlook Disapproves of CEO I worked at Curtis Banks full-time (More than 3 years) Pros Nice people, good location, good Christmas parties Cons Lack of strategic thinking. Company expanded so quickly that some departments running inefficiently and independently, so cross company comms are poor. Mass exodus of the good staff over past two years since buying out Suffolk Life, when the rot really set in. Those left over dealing with a culture clash of trying to wedge two very different (politically and operationally) companies together. Pretty miserable stuff … Show More Advice to Management Show some leadership and motivate your people

AISHAH, I've been very unimpressed with Suffolk Life too (acquired by CBP in Jan 2016). So far it's taken them nine months to move a simple SIPP. At least I can still access the cash so am still able to trade. It took them a mere six months to move my wife's SIPP, but there was a month where they held on to the cash balance (a chunky six figure sum) and didn't forward it to the new provider, in spite of being instructed to do so. I'd dread to have to get involved with them when it comes to drawdown. Are these delays deliberate, so they can maintain the funds under control numbers?

Wonder where the price could of been by now without the placing? Certainly much nearer 400p v the sub 300p today.

Bought a few today just over 300p. Prospect look good for the business. Reckon it should plod back toward 350p over the next month or so.
