|Nice little update on the website. Still think minorities will get short changed.|
|RNS issued: PG now has over 10%|
|resolution passed so no fireworks by sounds of it.|
|I expect we will see fireworks today and hopefully some announcements too on PG's stake|
|I reckon that if vacuum cleaners had DNA it'd be similar to whatever PG has! I assume that he's hoovering as much up as possible prior to Monday's meeting.|
I am told that there is not much stock available but lots being bid for which indicates someone wanting stock which is wierd for a company about to delist!
I am going to hold tight or add more on that basis as somethns cooking up here. see link below tells you more about PG
Looks like you're right, PG appears to be hoovering them up with a gusto and he could be breaking the 9% holding soon enough. Perhaps he was waiting in the wings for an update on progress but the effects of the delisting has encouraged him to accumulate earlier.|
|either that or people like PG can see massive potentialhere|
|I'm wondering whether there's a potential bidder for the company been flushed out.|
|looks like someone is upto something to avoid directors nicking this one on the cheap!|
|INVO was floted in 2006 raising ca 9m for a Newco that bought the "old operational company". the vendors were given 70% of Newco(=INVO) plus ca £6.5m in cash, the remaining £2.5m was for new investments etc. the shares were issued at 111p !
4 years later the same vendors take the company off the market and no doubt will be able to buy the 30% back at say 30p = £2.5m.
so after 4 years as a public company they will again own 100% of the Business while having pocketed a net of £4m in cash - plus HUGE salaries and payoffs meanwhile.
it is extremely bad of Blackrock not to take action against the INVO board and their advisors in a situation like this! they have been totally screwed and the only thing they do is to vote with their feet. and for this they charge their investors fat management fees......
it is time for the LSE/AIM to intorduce rules that forbid this type of "robbing the public" as no doubt it will hurt the serious companies that are really respecting the best interest of all shareholders.
shame on the INVO directors and majority owners, shame on Charles Stanley their advisor and shame on Blackrock who just let this happen. or maybe they like being screwed?
as for Gillenhammer: sure he has spotted some excellent value here - but how avoid this being nicked by the directors?|
|Actually I've jumped the gun a bit as perhaps he sees good sense in the directors' choice of strategy. Hopefully not, but you never know.
It could be a decent trade if he buys enough to prevent the delisting and then sells into a subsequent spike when they announce they're to stay listed! Definitely interesting :)|
|Indeed, Peter Gyllenhammar The Great presents us with a grain of hope to cling to as we rasp our last dying cough.|
|go, this is interesting with PG coming on board. I am hoping we have some fireworks :)|
|Very pleasant news to see PG buying up stock (I'd thought it was the directors doing a last-minute share grab on the cheap to get their 75%). I wouldn't be surprised if the INVO directors are suddenly feeling a bit hot under the collar with his arrival on the shareholder register as they may not get the easy ride they'd hoped for ..... interesting ....
... but might have guessed it'd be Blackrock dumping though....!

Very disappointed at the lack of improvement in the share price despite what looks to be a large number of purchases being made over the past week.
Based on having witnessed bad investment decisions by them elsewhere my bet is that this is due to Blackrock disposing of its holdings.|
|'More pain' and job cuts for Scottish economy
.... and what are the idiot directors at INVO suggesting to capitalise on the situation? A delisting?!? Incompetence is too kind a word.
As a word of warning: Reflec (REF), who were delisted last year, have just been asked by some majority shareholders (who were no doubt privately invited to participate in a recent placing to gain them their majority status) to have a 1:1000 consolidation in an effort to try to push out (or force to try to invest further) the smaller shareholders as a cost-cutting exercise in the event of an eventual dividend distribution (to compensate for pay cuts which they've been forced to take). So in a year's time perhaps expect a 1:10,000 consolidation here as the greedy INVO directors try to keep the profits for themselves!!|
|Parvez, looking at fundamentals this is/was cheap! Management greed has caused this delisting IMHO and it's very unfortunate, was looking forward to the results and some good upside. Very frustrating... what i can't understand are the large buys coming in? It still needs to be approved by shareholders but i would steer away for now. Hope noone got to burnt, this was unforseen and very unfortunate. GLA|
|SOMEONE SELLING A FEW THOUSAND COULD ONLY GET 5.85 WHAT A DISGRACE MANAGEMENT!|
|Mike, Still cheap??|
|We discussed this possibility from 20th March on this thread, post 137 onwards:
"Does any one have a view with regard to delisting risk here? I note that the directors own about 70% of the shares (from memory), is anyone here worried about that - it bugs me a little".
Should have gone with the gut and sold then :(
In fact, I should always go with the gut but don't every time for reasons I can't fathom just yet.|
|Invocas pulls out of stock market
|Well that's about number 4 in the last 2 or 3 months.
Has to make you think twice about investing in small micro caps with majority holders.
Sorry to see how it turned out for the small shareholders. You have my sympathy guys.
Edit: Not intended as a ramp but have a look at CAO. It's a small cap trading at less than cash. I've been holding since just over 12p and have it as a buy up to just over 18p. Just read the thread - it's all self explanatory.|
thanks, will look into that|
Very badly it seems as a liquid market doesn't exist, at least based on the accounts of having witnessed the consequences of delisting at both WTV and REF.
I think that you phone J P Jenkins and say that you want to buy or sell shares, and then they try to match that instruction with someone else who's phoned them previously to try to arrange a mutually acceptable trade.|
