delayed reporting of 30k pnds buy at 44p around 10am this morning might be part of the reason for today's rise...

One might question the selection process for an FD. How would Oscar Wilde put it? To loose 1 FD may seem like carelessness, to loose two is highly disturbing. The MM's have taken note and I have grave concerns over Mr. Ketteley despite his legion of followers. I would have sold my two holdings last month if there had been anyone to purchase them at the crazily high price they were shown by the MM's for some strange reason.

Imo there was no 6 months probation.. Imo if you hire a qualified experienced FD ...after due diligence.. Then you have to pay the contracted pay off if he leaves, except if gross misconduct.

..."terse announcement" Indeed... 'Suddenly left'... Guesses ? A shouting match with someone higher up ? (MD or chairman) Refusal to bend or adjust the accounts as dictated from above ? Not working hard enough to get the accounts out on time ? Brain ache from handling different currencies etc. (Complicated in some aspects imo) ---- In last 5 years phps 1M quid gone in dir pay offs. imo (Not common for FDs to leave for squabbles imo.....normally they are the king of the accounts...fullstop...and left to it)

Ive posted before about worrying short duration tenancy for directors...except Ketteley... Anyone know the bod.....is there a problem with working with Ketteley ....or is it pure chance that directors stay less than 12 months....time after time after time...?

Plus they pay £43k a year to rent an office for the chairman iirc from a company owned by the chairman...and then need to rent another office for him for £5k p.a. in Burnham on crouch so he can be nearer the office🙄

I suspect his probationary period was 6 months. ELCO seem to have a revolving door policy for the role of Finance Director. It's a bit like the hot seat on 'have I got news for you'. Not seen anything like it before. Growth looks pretty decent, but this is a bit of a red flag for me I'm afraid. GLA

Surprised nobody has commented on what seems the rather sudden departure of the Group Finance Director after only six months. No reasons given in what seems a slightly terse announcement.

Galliford Try + Asta Powerproject = Birmingham Conservatoire hTTp://www.elecosoft.com/news/galliford-try-uses-asta-powerproject-bim-birmingham-conservatoire/ [read full case study] I'm still baffled as to why Mingy Machs seem so determined to keep the share price up even in the face of some chunky 'sells'.

..ansc.. maybe the 2-3p rise today wipes out your scrip issues ;-) ----- Surprising the jump on tiny volume at end of the day...a 1p rise I was expecting since buys have kept going thru. but seemed to be getting filled without any problem... perhaps the MM has filled a sell order (2 big trades shown) and doesnt have another block to sell...

Thanks, Steve, if they are increasing their charges that effectively rules them out.

I know Barclays will take up scrip issues if you have dividends reinvested. But I have just moved from them to Hargreaves Lansdown as Barclays were putting up their charges a lot for larger portfolios. Cheers, Steve.

What about moving your account to register your objection...or moving your ELCO holding out to cert format ...your broker might then review their policies....

I'm not surprised in the least that so few shareholders took up what appeared to be the very generous scrip dividend offer alternative. With my own broker (Hargreaves Lansdown Stockbrokers) not allowing scrip issues in their nominee accounts, I contacted three others - with a view to transferring my custom - but none of them allowed 'scrips' online either. With the scrip shares being priced at 38.95p and the current offer price now 49.0p, I've calculated that it's cost me £714. My broker's argument is that, being part of a large pooled holding, it was impossible for them to differentiate each individual shareholder's entitlement. Bunkum! How do they manage to allocate dividends then? And I've also done two rights issues with them in the past. I will be putting my complaint to the Financial Ombudsman in due course but, according to HLS, even if the Ombudsman agrees that this is an unfair practise, the broker can not be made to change their terms and conditions. In the meantime, has any shareholder participated in an online scrip issue with their own broker? edit: slight miscalculation, have amended my 'cost' figure.

Instis or some other big fish soaking up the sells imo they take a 3-5 year and ignore that they could have bt cheaper X months ago...

Yesterday was the last day for shareholders to accept the scrip offer alternative (if they were allowed to by their broker!), it will be interesting to see what the percentage uptake was. A lot of selling pressure (@ 46.5p) recently being absorbed by the Mingy Machs without dropping the price. Most unusual.

Interestingly the six trades this afternoon marked at 47p (totaling 102.5k), presumably all buys, didn't move the share price one jot. At least that should have mopped-up any possible surplus stock the Mingy Machs may have had on their books. Let's see what happens next week ..... not that that will influence my stance at all. It looks as though our 'traders' have disappeared, having pocketed no doubt a useful profit.

For any (relatively) new shareholder in the company, who wishes to learn more about the 'ins and outs' of ELCO's activities, there is a comprehensive report produced by Progressive Equity Research which was released at yesterday's AGM. The person to contact (to obtain a copy) is Gareth Evans and he can be emailed at gevans@progressive-research.com. It is well worth a read.
