I guess Griffin's involvement with the goings-on at Godskitchen and Air Promotions was just a little too fishy for this company!

Hi Hybrasil, yes with properties leased to the company. Also, check the red flags about the company's accounts and the admission document.

Looks like a fight between new ceo and old ceo. Griffin walks off with a massive payoff Old ceo still in the broom cupboard, thought he be in the skip by now but how demoralising for him

It is so rare that John lee gets it really wrong. I hate when founders retain freeholds. Has this happened here?

rns out - https://www.investegate.co.uk/fishing-republic-plc--fish-/rns/trading-update/201801110700025413B/ Griffin - having borrowed wqtch to tell the coy the time has now departed - Presumably having collected his fees - Interesting - "The Board therefore expects revenues for the year to be c. £9.0 million although, as previously stated, the Company will record an overall loss for the period." Reading between the lines - Not going well - last ditch attempt to become cash flow positive but new senior managment could be costly - Outlook - Cloudy (imo) with possible fatal storms within the next 6 months - BUT what do others think ?

Hmm, they are not interested in dealing with a faulty product and a possible exchange or refund.

Let's see how they deal with faulty products. So far I am being redirected from YGA to fishing republic although it was YGA who were the seller. Let's see!

I will wait to see if Chris Griffin buys any. As he is now a PDMR, there would have to be an RNS if he did buy any.

Tempted but could be a short cover bounce. Xmas sales may be good but were probably deeply discounted. Continuing to monitor.

Cash is certainly going to be tight, new branches add significant fixed overheads that need to be covered even when sales are low. A deeply discounted placing is a real possibility, resulting in massive dilution for PIs. Another possibility is a recommended offer from MacDonald, Leahy, Currie and possibly Griffin. Even at a 30% premium to the current price they could take it private for a relatively small sum.

Must admit I had been expecting a fund raising. Maybe early in the New Year? They are going to need cash for sure.

Christopher Griffin – read the employee reviews about him on the Anatwine pages on the Glassdoor website. This is quite funny though: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YqWbzSgMKoA But seriously, investors deserve to know about the following: GK ENTERTAINMENT LIMITED (FORMERLY GODSKITCHEN LIMITED) – IN ADMINISTRATIVE RECEIVERSHIP (‘THE COMPANY’) Report to creditors pursuant to Section 48 of the Insolvency Act 1986 1 INTRODUCTION 1.1 Following my appointment as joint administrative receiver on 5 August 2004, I am submitting our report to the creditors pursuant to section 48 of the Insolvency Act 1986. 1.2 Statutory information relating to the company is contained in Appendix 1. The company changed its name from Godskitchen Limited to GK Entertainment Limited on 27 July 2004. 1.3 A Summary of the Directors’ statement of affairs is attached at Appendix 2. 2 HISTORY AND EVENTS LEADING UP TO APPOINTMENT OF ADMINISTRATIVE RECEIVER 2.1 The company was incorporated on 1 March 2000 as Godskitchen Limited and operated CODE nightclub from leasehold premises, in Digbeth, Birmingham. In addition the company ran a number of music events at hired venues across the UK and Europe. 2.2 Although the nightclub building is leased, prior to the opening of the nightclub in early 2000, the company invested in excess of £900,000 in tenants improvements, to convert the building into CODE nightclub. 2.3 Code nightclub closed for refurbishment in late July 2003 and reopened in late September 2003 as Air nightclub. The refurbishment cost in excess of £300,000. At the time of reopening, the company ceased to operate the nightclub. The directors say that a management agreement was issued by the company to Air Promotions Limited, a company with associated directors, to operate the nightclub. Despite a number of requests, we have not been provided with a copy of the management agreement. 2.4 The company continued to operate a limited number of music events at hired venues across the UK and Europe. 2.5 Although the company ceased operating the nightclub in late July 2003 and ceased to receive the income from the nightclub certain expenditure relating to the nightclub continued to be paid by the company, resulting in the bank overdraft increasing from £422,885 on 1 August 2003 to in excess of £1.2m in August 2004. As a result on 5 August 2004, Bank of Scotland issued a demand for repayment of their debt, which was not satisfied. Consequently Bank of Scotland appointed Andrew Menzies and myself as joint administrative receivers on 5 August 2004. 3 FORFEITURE OF THE NIGHTCLUB LEASE 3.1 On 2 August 04, the landlord of the nightclub forfeit the lease due to non payment of rent, insurance and interest. As a result, tenants improvements costing in excess of £1.2m appear now to be held by the landlord. We have requested documentation from the landlord to substantiate the forfeiture and we are waiting for a response. 3.2 We understand one of the Directors, Mr Moffitt is a guarantor under the lease and a new lease has been granted to Godskitchen Worldwide Limited, a company with associated directors. 3.3 Despite a number of requests to meet with the Directors and obtain access to the nightclub immediately following our appointment, to identify assets belonging to the company, we were finally allowed access on 7 October 2004. We are in the process of agreeing those assets identified at the nightclub to the Directors statement of affairs. 4 POST APPOINTMENT ACTION 4.1 Following our appointment we caused the company to issue proceedings against the Directors alleging misfeasance principally in connection with the transfer (apparently for no consideration) of the nightclub business to Air Promotions. We also obtained a freezing injunction preventing Air Promotions Limited from moving from its account the sum of £526,000. We now await the Defence of the Directors and Air Promotions. 4.2 After some delay we have obtained the majority of the books and papers of the company and have interviewed one of the Directors and Senior Manager of the company. 4.3 We are investigating the inter-company position between the company, Air Promotions and various other companies having common directors and shareholders. 5 SECURED AND PREFENTIAL CREDITORS 5.1 The amount due to Bank of Scotland at the date of my appointment was £1,238,699 to which interest continues to accrue. This is secured by a fixed and floating charge over the company’s assets. 5.2 We have been informed by the directors, there are no preferential creditors. 6 OUTCOME AS REGARDS UNSECURED CREDITORS 6.1 According to the directors’ statement of affairs, which is summarised in Appendix 2, the unsecured creditors claims are currently estimated at £1,220,685. 6.2 Unfortunately, as can be seen from the summary statement of affairs there is no likelihood of a dividend to unsecured creditors. 7 OTHER MATTERS 7.1 The directors’ sworn statement of affairs for the company was submitted to me on 30 September 2004. A summary of its contents, together with my comments thereon is attached at Appendix 2. 7.2 A notice convening a meeting of creditors is attached at Appendix 3. At this meeting, this report will be presented to creditors who will be able to vote on appointing a creditors committee. The meeting will be held at 10am on 5 November 2004 at Grant Thornton, Enterprise House, 115 Edmund Street, Birmingham, B3 2HJ 7.3 Finally, as joint administrative receivers one of our duties is to report to the Department of Trade and Industry on the conduct of the Directors of the company prior to our appointment. If you have any comments you would like us to consider in our report, please forward these for my attention to the address detailed above. 7.4 In addition, following our appointment, we requested all the company’s books and records on a number of occasions. Although the directors’ have now provided the majority of the books and records, these appear to be incomplete. In order to assist us in our investigation, I would be grateful if you could forward any invoices issued to the company since 1 July 2003 to the address detailed above. It would also be helpful if creditors could confirm who they dealt with at the company in relation to the delivery of their goods and services to the company to whom invoices were submitted and who creditors dealt with in connection with attempts to collect their debt. Creditors are also requested to confirm who they believe the Directors of the company to be. For and on behalf of GK Entertainment Limited Appendix 1 GK Entertainment Limited (formerly Godskitchen Limited) – In Administrative Receivership Statutory Information Registered Number 3937005 Date of Incorporation 1 March 2000 Registered Office Grant Thornton Enterprise House 115 Edmund Street Birmingham B3 2HJ Issued Share Capital Ordinary A Shares of £1 each 100 Ordinary B Shares of £1 each 100 Shareholders Christopher Griffin James Algate Neil Moffit Tyrone Matthews Directors Christopher Griffin James Algate Neil Moffit Company Secretary Antonia Algate Other information includes: Christopher Griffin was appointed a director of Air Promotions Ltd (company no. 4883285) on 6 September 2003.
