4237_rides_again: Why don't you print the email in your possession? The only difference between Buffett and Madoff is that the latter said he would refund the money on request, whereas Buffett said send me your money, I will never pay you any income but I will give you a piece of paper you can sell to somebody else at whatever price they will give you for it. As my old commodity chums used to say, "PFM" or for the likes of you, "Pure Magic" You forget I and many others met "his" lot with Stephens & Co many times in Omaha in the mid '80s and none of us in the insurance world would touch him with a bargepole. Following on from his initial successful investment portfolio work, the one thing he got right was the acquisition of GEICO and that is what has set him up to run the most successful "near Ponzi" scheme of all time - aka "send me your money and you'll never see it again - but you can always sell the piece of paper I am giving you if you can find another mug". "Oh and by the way if it all works out I am going to make myself the perceived most succesful investor in the world on the back of your money you will never ever see again". GEICO, run by the best underwriters etc, gave him the excuse to con investors with the word "float" that he could invest, when actually it was only compounded non-payment of dividends. Run the numbers on his permitted dividends and then ask yourself what is the difference between Buffett and AIG except timing! Why has his share price substantially lagged the indexes for more than a year? Because people are finally waking upto the "shell game" he has been successfully running for 20 years. Nice work if you can get it. Berkshire Hathaway is a "busted flush" waiting to be exposed.
goldfinch: Share price is holding up despite the market meltdown
joshro: bbc to show 15 x 11 minute episodes of new ccg pinky & perky. didn't we own them once? that would have been one of those share price rocketing announcements we eagerly awaited many a year ago. who owns them now? wouldn't be an ex-director would it?
peakk9: MPS, I might be putting 2 + 2 together here, but what the hell. In Miles' email dated 15/02/02, he advised CJ as follows:- 1) "It is certainly the Boards view that no information was withheld that materially effected Just's share price or caused investors to be misled." 2 "if you wish to refer these matters to the authorities for investigation then that is your prerogative." Without seeing CJ's original email to Miles, can I ask the obvious question that no one has asked, do the points above refer to the PMS/GOSH contract, as they read that way?
peakk9: MPS, I've just read CJ's post on JTA and for a minute, I've put myself in his position:- 1) 15/02/02 - I (CJ) recieve an email from Miles stating that, "It is certainly the Boards view that no information was withheld that materially effected Just's share price or caused investors to be misled." 2) 08/02/06 - Miles openly admits in a telephone conversation that, serious false accounting was going off in 2001 and that Just Group was, I (CJ) quote: "run crookedly". Why would he openly admit it now, that's a strange one? Edit - "Further admissions by Miles and other former directors (see my witness statement of the 15th December 2006) pertaining to false invoicing in 2001 and prior years substantiate conclusively that shareholders and investors were deceived as material information was intentionally withheld by the board. The cover up of the false accounting, also admitted by David Newcombe in a further recorded discussion in January 2006, prevented criminal action being taken against all directors for fraudulent conduct and creating a false market in Just Group shares." Whilst they didn't admit to it, why has it 'prevented criminal action being taken against all directors for fraudulent conduct and creating a false market in Just Group shares', have I missed something here?
erinbrok: Why don't we pick this one dated 26 feb 2002 apart? Just Action Group Newsletter Strictly Confidential - IMPORTANT / URGENT NEWS FOR ALL JAG MEMBERS Dear JAG Member, Re: CVA and BUTT UGLY MARTIANS I hope all JAG members have had the opportunity to read my updates on the JAG web site and I will therefore refer to current issues. We now need to act rapidly to either secure the future of Just Group with a CVA or, if this should fail, be ready to bid for Butt Ugly Martians immediately. It was only the contract race that effectively lost us Just Publishing. Many of you may be aware that on Friday, KPMG advertised BUMs for sale. This is surprisingly late considering the Administrators were appointed on the 9th January, 2002. I believe that KPMG were hoping for an offer from Universal but it would appear it has not materialised as UNIVERSAL will leave it to the last possible moment, bidding for BUMs at a much later date if there are no other offers, even waiting to do a deal with the liquidator for a very low price. We believe this is due to the complexities of the BUM's contract and the complicated terms. It is anticipated that very few offers will be received for BUMs from outside parties and Eversheds, solicitors for KPMG and JUST, have even indicated this to our solicitors. However, we are at an advantage in that Graham Calderbank (ex FD of Just) working with JAG, and a shareholder, has an excellent understanding of the contract and terms agreed. The contract has also been carefully studied by one of our solicitors (thanks to the JAG Action Fund). We now need to regard last week's fund raising for a bid on Just Publishing Ltd as a trial run. THIS IS NOW THE REAL THING, THE MOMENT OF TRUTH. Over 200 shareholders contributed last week; as good as the response was in a very short time scale, THE RESPONSE NOW needs to be increased dramatically, at least seven fold if we are to succeed. With 1,800+ current JAG members it is possible, BUT ONLY IF MEMBERS PARTICIPATE IN THE FUNDING AND DO NOT LEAVE IT UP TO OTHERS. The terms would be the same as my e-mail last Sunday in relation to Just Publishing, which are repeated further below. THE POTENTIAL RETURN ON THE BUTT UGLY MARTIANS IS SUBSTANTIAL WITH THE COMMITMENT FROM UNIVERSAL, AS DAVID NEWCOMBE INDICATED IN HIS AFFIDAVIT SUBMITTED TO APPOINT ADMINISTRATORS. WHAT IS CRITICAL FOR ALL SHAREHOLDERS NOW IS FOR US TO RAISE SUFFICIENT FUNDS FOR A BID (BEARING IN MIND THAT THE LIKELY SUCCESSFUL BID PRICE WILL BE SUBSTANTIALLY BELOW THE TRUE MARKET VALUE). IT IS OUR INTENTION THAT ULTIMATELY ALL SHAREHOLDERS WILL GET ADDITIONAL BONUS SHARES ALLOCATED ONCE THE BUMS ARE PURCHASED, OR ON SUCCESSFUL COMPLETION OF THE CVA, AS OUTLINED BELOW. However, a bid for BUMs is our secondary objective; our primary objective is the CVA which could rescue Just Group, which is referred to in detail below but in the event that the CVA is not possible, WE MUST STILL BE READY FOR AN IMMEDIATE BID FOR BUTT UGLY MARTIANS. If you took part in the Rights Issue survey on the JAG web site and indicated your belief in the Group and in particular Butt Ugly Martians now is the time to show your real support. CVA (Company Voluntary Arrangement) A proposal was put to the Administrators' solicitors, Eversheds, late on Thursday, on my instructions, by our solicitors, Sprecher Grier Halberstam, for a CVA. Very late on Friday, Eversheds agreed to discuss the matter, and a meeting has been proposed at KPMG's offices on Tuesday, for myself, our solicitors, the Administrators and Begbies Traynor. You may recall that Begbies Traynor would oversee the CVA, if all proceeds well, and I have discussed the matter with Jamie Tailor, Senior Partner. The Administrators consideration of the CVA is conditional upon evidence of funding, offered last week, although a £30,000 payment has been requested by Eversheds to postpone matters until Friday 1st March, this sum has been requested to meet the Administrators' costs in the unlikely event that the CVA should prove unsuccessful. This will be discussed with Eversheds on Monday as we feel that KPMG have a legal duty to pursue the best possible return for creditors and we believe the CVA can achieve this in the long term. The ex-Group Purchase Ledger Manager of Just, Mike Stevenson, has already contacted many of the major creditors on our behalf and every one contacted agreed to an equity for debt swap (that is, new shares to be issued in lieu of any cash payment) at 20p in the £1 owed. For example, if a creditor is owed the sum of £100,000 the creditor will receive £20,000 worth of shares, at a share price to be agreed. (In time, after relisting, the shares will hopefully increase in value providing the creditor with a larger return. If the share price is agreed at 1.75p for example, on issue and increases in time to 8.75p, the creditor can sell and will have received 100% of his money back). Without the CVA, it is fairly clear in our opinion, that the creditors will receive nothing from the Administrators, due to the low prices achieved for assets and subsidiaries, and as secured creditors (Bank, Inland Revenue) receive their payments first, as well as KPMG (for their substantial fees) in preference to unsecured creditors. It is likely therefore, that we will easily achieve the requirement of the creditors agreement accounting for 75% of the total sum owed to creditors. For example, if there are 1,000 creditors including 60 larger creditors who account for 75% of the total sum, we only need the consent of those 60 creditors. The remaining 940 have no option but to accept the CVA. The CVA will have a much better chance of being accepted with the support of our Bankers, AND THE BANKS FINAL DECISION TO PROVIDE THEIR SUPPORT WILL BE INFLUENCED CONSIDERABLY BY THE SUM RAISED BY JAG MEMBERS THIS WEEK. We have provided our proposals to both RBS and Barclays Bank, who are currently considering our proposals, Business Plan/Projections. If the bank see evidence that a rights issue would be successful in the near future, again we are far more likely to receive their support, as it reduces their financial risk, and we would not be relying on an overdraft facility. WE HAVE ONE OPPORTUNITY TO PROVE TO THE BANK THAT JUST GROUP STILL HAS THE SUPPORT OF ITS SHAREHOLDERS. PLEASE, THEREFORE, PROVIDE YOUR SUPPORT IF YOU CAN. IF THE CVA IS NOT SUCCESSFUL OR THE SUBSEQUENT BID FOR BUTT UGLY MARTIANS SHOULD FAIL, YOU HAVE THE FULL ASSURANCES OF GOS AND JAG THAT YOUR CONTRIBUTION WILL BE RETURNED IN FULL (less minor bank charges). The basis and purpose of the bid/fund is as follows: 1. We envisage that a new Limited Company would act as our holding company and would complete the purchase by JAG Members, assuming our bid is the highest offer received by KPMG. 2. In order to submit the bid and facilitate the purchase, you, as a member of JAG, are requested to e-mail in reply by 2.30pm on Tuesday, 26th February, 2002 AT THE LATEST the amount you would be prepared to contribute. There is no minimum amount and NO maximum. Whatever sum you decide to contribute will help, however, please refer to paragraph 10 below in relation to small contributions. 3. You should also confirm in your e-mail your full name and address and confirm that, in making the investment, you agree to be appointed as a Director of the Limited Holding Company making the purchase. This is solely to enable you to be a founding Director in the holding company and means that you are not investing in the business simply, or only, as a shareholder, which would not be possible under investment rules. (For the avoidance of doubt, as an investor only, not a founding Director, you would need to be issued with a prospectus under FSA rules and clearly there is no time to do this, hence you would be a founding Director of the holding company.) You will be sent the relevant form to sign if we are successful in our bid. 4. Your funds must be available and transferable on by 2.30pm on Tuesday this week - please do not leave it to the last minute, the latest time for CHAPS transfers (same day) is 2.30pm. 5. It is envisaged there would be the incentive of an additional payment, in shares, to all JAG member/ directors of the holding company not to sell their shares for one year from the purchase date of the Butt Ugly Martians. 6. No salary or any other benefit of any kind (other than as referred to in the paragraph above) would be payable to the Directors of the new Holding Company, thus PAYE or national insurance and terms of employment are not applicable to any Directors. 7. The bid price cannot be disclosed under any circumstances until after the close of bidding (as JAG Members may possibly include a contact of our competitors). 8. In the event that sufficient funds are not offered by 2.30pm on Tuesday, as outlined above, then it is likely our bid will fail. However, the deadline MAY be extended, so if you do not have funds immediately available, please still e-mail as detailed below and state the date on which you can transfer cleared funds and of course state the amount. 9. Any excess funds received from JAG members over and above our bid price (if accepted by KPMG) may be used to provide working capital, if deemed necessary by the Directors, and members will be advised in due course, accordingly. 10. In order to reduce the number of Directors in the new holding Company and the amount of administration, GOS reserve the right to limit the number of Directors by only accepting sufficient sums as required to facilitate the purchase and therefore not all the smaller sums offered will be utilised in these circumstances. Members will be notified accordingly, however, members who are only able to contribute a small sum should still offer to do so, in the event that sufficient larger amounts are not offered by members. 11. The larger your contribution, the larger percentage you will share. WHAT TO DO NEXT In summary, please e-mail by return, as stated above, to advise: 1. Your full name. 2. Your full postal address including post code. 3. Your agreement to invest in the purchase of Butt Ugly Martians on the terms outlined in the above e-mail. 4. The amount you can invest and confirm that your amount would be available for transfer on Tuesday to HSBC, account details as follows: account name: JUST ACTION GROUP account number: 01741446 sort code: 40-15-05 bank name: HSBC-BROMLEY-MARKET SQUARE BRANCH. 5. You agree to be appointed as a Director/shareholder in the new Holding Company. PLEASE E-MAIL who works for Downs& Co, who are acting for us, to avoid delays with acelogic having to forward e-mails. For avoidance of doubt, I confirm that the JAG Action Fund, set up several weeks ago, is for legal, accountancy and advisors costs/fees and for expenses incurred by GOS members in trying to save Just Group and/or for taking legal action at a later date, as previously mentioned. I confirm the Action Fund will not be used for the purchase of Butt Ugly Martians and should not therefore be confused with the amount we are now trying to raise to secure the purchase of Butt Ugly Martians. I confirm that neither myself or JAG are not advising you in any financial capacity, nor are we recommending any particular course of action. As a Just Group shareholder, you should be able to assess the position and understand the consequences of supporting or not supporting us in the purchase of Butt Ugly Martians (or in helping in our attempt to save Just Group PLC). Finally, it is important for all members who contributed last week for the proposed purchase of Just Publishing Ltd. to e-mail us to confirm that you agree for your amount to be retained for the bid of Butt Ugly Martians. Please also include in the e-mail the additional appropriate information, if you are making an ADDITIONAL contribution. Could everyone please remember that contributions should be made by CHAPS transfer (please advise your bank) as cleared funds would be required by KPMG. (Cheques would take 7 days to clear and for this reason may not assist us in our endeavours.) Credit card payments regrettably cannot be made. The Butt Ugly Martians are back on CITV in the spring with a new series. I have been advised that the percentage given to UNIVERSAL in return for their significant world-wide marketing campaign and the movie contract was not excessive in return for the cost being fully met by UNIVERSAL. However, it is worth stressing that I understand JUST still retain their total share of revenues from the last series and the next 13 episodes to be broadcast, as JUST have paid for these 26 episodes (that is, none of the revenue goes to Universal from the first 26 episodes) Significant royalty payments have been achieved and will continue to be achieved in the UK and world-wide for Just Group. PLEASE ACT NOW BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE. Thank you in anticipation of your support. With my very best wishes, Yours sincerely, Christopher Jones Vice-Chairman Just Action Group P.S. A reminder to e-mail direct to:, as stated above.

totters: Billy Your 9035 - I'm not suggesting that from outset they did not intend to re-list but at some point they must have realised that the post re-list share price would have been about a tenth of a penny making most shareholdings almost worthless. Also watch out as we all know that you once used the nickname CelticII and even though you have explained why you changed Arpy is going to mark you down as a liar forever more. Instead of entering into reasoned debate Arpy seems to apply the following tactics about anyone who posts something he does not agree with 1. Call people names 2. Claim that people have used many nicknames in the past and are really a member of GOS or former Just Management 3. Make accusations about people that he has never been able to substantiate. Very strange behaviour really.
goldfinch: What's the current share price of JUS?
totters: The sad thing about all this is that Just Group was never capable of being saved - No institutions, banks or even share bucket shops were going to give Just anymore funds or place their shares when things went wrong. If the city professionals were not willing to save Just did the shareholders ever stand a chance? The people who put themselves forward to run the company were out of their depth, this would go some way to explaining why so much professional advice was required. Too many shareholders had put more than they could afford to lose in a high risk penny share (encouraged by a misleading company announcement and media and bulletin board ramping)and viewed Just Group's rescue chances through Rose tinted glasses. Sometime ago Arpy initiated a thread headed Who stole our £5.8 million (or something similar). The figures that have now been posted on this board apparently show where most of the £5.8 million was spent. Arpy states that this information is donkeys years old so I assume that he has seen these figures before. Can I therefore ask Arpy who on this list stole the money they were paid and his reasons for saying the money was stolen, or do you not believe that this list is an accurate representation of where most of the £5.8 million was spent. Could Mark Hardy for once and for all declare his interests and motives for taking on this basket case of a company. Fair enough you have disclosed that you will be paid £30,000 as a creditor of Think if the funds held by KPMG are paid to Think but that appears to be a scant return for the time and effort it will take to obtain the funds. Are you due a success fee from the other creditors for getting back money that they have probably already written off, or is their any kind of finders fee for selling on the remaining IP rights. If you could fully declare your motives more shareholders may be likely to overlook your arogant attitude and help you bring some kind of closure to this whole issue. You seem to be constructing some kind of audit trail on what happened which I'm sure the shareholders welcome. Arpy and MPS however seem to hold an alternative view of what happened but have never really said what that view is. Arpy and MPS are you suggesting that Chris Jones did have a viable business plan for cleaning up Just via the CVA, getting the company relisted, returning the company to profitability by exploitation of its IP rights and therefore boosting the share-price, had a nailed on case against Andersons that would very quickly produce millions in damages or out of court settlement that could be divied back to CVA contributors etc but was prevented from carrying out this plan by the other directors who only intended to line their own pockets so unfairly ousted CJ and then appointed Mark Hardy to cover their tracks and transfer anything left of value to their own vehicles?
sansofe: mps - was it the same meeting of minds that decided the CVA share price. As you claim to have a better brain than the rest of us perhaps you can use it to work out whether the CVA share price was calculated with the AA £30mil included.
