Nobody gives a damn about the small Private Retail Investor, most companies don't and sadly it's as simple as that.

In reality directors look out for themselves first, just look at Marconi. When Marconi was going bust, the directors spent the last month suring up their pensions while doing nothing to keep the company going. Shareholders are always last in line, after the directors look after themselves, then it the secured creditors, unsecured creditor, staff and last in line are the share holders. Most directors are very poor at managing the companies they do, often are clueless and on the whole, unless they have a substantial share holding the company they're directors of usually they don't give a damn about the share holders.

A more balanced post by whatsup...appreciated. Bear in mind that Flybe have possible Hoskings/investigation/litigation ahead of them, Tinkler money to the side of them, and a possible (I think almost certain) conspiracy behind them

hpcg. ‘All reports are nevertheless upbeat. This is the company doing its job for shareholders-giving them a chance to sell at a highest price possible to buyers with less in-depth knowledge’ In other words they are knowingly misleading the ‘less in-depth’ investor. Private investors are not analysts nor are they accountants , directors have an obligation to all shareholders, not just the connected ones. Luke Johnson is an intelligent investor , didn’t he just get done . Where were all the smart accountants and analysts there. I agree the writing was on the wall for Flybe. Just disagree it’s acceptable practise for management to give a rosy outlook when the opposite may be true. Management should have more insight then your regular guy on the street. When results or trading update is released it’s usually done three months in arrears. That’s three months of insight to go on.

no announcement, yet, of Hoskings or Tinkler selling/reducing their holding. I am glad I sold at 3.75p, but that does not mean that there is not a conspiracy/malpractice/collusion/cronyism etc here- just too risky. However the BODs announcements do not indicate exasperation but desperation- seems as if they are trying to close down as many avenues as possible- they clearly have quite a lot to hide. Lets see what happens.

So what if Flybe is wound up as it doesn't have any assets anymore, just the Flybe name and Flybe.com, therefore it seems to me even if wound up the aircraft will still keep flying.

Following the words of Prime Minister Theresa May: Flybe yesterday issued an ultimatum to shareholders to back its sale to a Virgin Atlantic-led consortium or risk the airline being wound up.

Once Flybe's assets were sold to Connect Airways it was all over and I was astonished that anybody thought otherwise.

whatsup32 - what gives a board of directors any greater insight into the future than you or I? Companies have their experience, and they will have models and correlations, but there is inherent uncertainty. It's a bit like people blaming Apple for not having come up with a successor product to the smart phone. This isn't something predictable, you can't just pop to the innovation cupboard and take the next blockbuster off the shelf. All we can ask of directors and executives is honesty, and prudence in balance sheet structure and capital allocation, and some domain expertise. Our skill as investors is to avoid situations where company management is deficient, and to have our own domain expertise in interpreting how macro and secular factors will impact on industry revenue and profitability. Of equal importance is our interpretation of accounts and of company announcements. For example Apple announced it would no longer report I-phone sales, Twitter will phase out reporting monthly active users, and Kellogg will no longer split out its reporting segments for North America, it will be a regional number. All of these are done to hide deterioration in those numbers. All reports are nevertheless upbeat. This is the company management doing its job for shareholders - giving them a chance to sell their shares at the highest price possible to buyers that may have less in depth knowledge.

the important bit "However the trading since the concretion of the FLYB share at minimum 0p maximum 1p is simply astonishing. Even those that traded successfully are doomed in the medium term."

hpcg. Not sure the blame should be the Private Investors alone. They read the headlines of results , listen to BOD , read the newspapers and maybe even look at brokers recommendations. If I was in their shoes I think I would be angry too. But having said that for the past month they had the option of getting out at .4-.6p . They should have taken it. I bought TUi 4 months ago. Latest information from the company 27th September was. We are firing on all cylinders expect 4th annual double digit growth , unseasonal summer has NOt effected us. Yesterday the share price dropped 20% . Company saying Summer has effected them, and NOT to expect any growth. We are reliant to a large extent on the board giving clear guidance instead of caveats

JakNife - it is situations like this, where the outcome is a known, or at least the best case is a known, that demonstrates just how ill-suited to direct investing a surprising number of market participants are. Firstly there is the evidence of FLYB itself, and I have been both long and short on several occasions over the last 8 years, that it has never been financially successful. Secondly well documented in main stream news, over capacity on European short haul routes, and poor winter load factors even from Ryanair and Easyjet. Thirdly the regular bankruptcy of small airlines. Finally and recently a Brexit deadline slow down. All these speak to substantial risk. Of course when a public (any) company goes out of business there has to be losers; every single worthless share is held by someone. What should happen in these circumstances is the share price drops very low and volume dries up. This didn't happen prior to the announcement but thus far the market has merely separated those with good judgement from those with bad judgement. That's fine we all make mistakes. However the trading since the concretion of the FLYB share at minimum 0p maximum 1p is simply astonishing. Even those that traded successfully are doomed in the medium term. On the other hand congratulations to the directors on saving jobs and the flights paid for by passengers. For some of those still employed the stay of execution will be short lived as loss making routes are culled, and locations close, but at least they have the opportunity to find alternative employment in the mean time.

If any is looking for a share that should be trading around 1p but fancies taking it up on a ride to 6p can they look at PEL, there is no 1p bid yet but I’m hoping there will be soon then it too might go to 6p for no apparent reason just like flybe. Btw don’t agree with anything that has happened here very underhand imho dyor

No wonder they put their own interest first and shafted the shareholders. Directors' shareholding of 0.40% -871664 shares. Its true saying don't invest in a company without a significant holding by the directors

the CEO won't want this to go into liquidation as she won't get her £1m bonus is that correct.

If there's still anyone paying more than 1p to buy this today then we should arrange a doctor's appointment for them.

Over on the LSE board they are mistakenly talking about the shell company being put into administration. The intention is to appoint a liquidator not an administrator. The Flybe board will justify this on the basis of the shell having no income yet still having outgoings. Once a liquidator is appointed after the necessary statutory notices there will be no company so no general meeting can be held to appoint Kohn to investigate the recent corporate history. Thoroughly despicable behaviour by the Flybe board. Apart from seeking a High Court injunction against the asset sale, I cannot see owt else Hoskings and Tinkler can do about it.
