diduno became a member of ADVFN on 27 Apr 2016 and has only posted on the Lakehouse BB. It is obvious that diduno has in someway been connected to the company and has a grievance and holds a grudge otherwise why would he/she just post on this BB with theoretical comments on the fraud case to try to make out to be bigger than what it actually is. It is a shame people like diduno cannot move on with their life’s, he/she is a very sad individual which should seek help.

You appear to know Bob Holt personally, Napoleon 14th. You know that he is confident about what he can do and that he enjoys a challenge. But are you aware of the size of the challenge that he has taken on? Until police investigations are complete I dare say you, like most, have absolutely no idea. Perhaps Bob Holt isn't fully aware either as the alleged frauds took place prior to him taking over. However, it is clear that he knows the company had 'rogue employees' because he has said so. With that in mind, I think it foolish not to expect criminal prosecutions. You are indeed correct when you say that the proof will be in the pudding. But what if the ingredients contain poison which it appears from Bob Holt's statement, it surely must? The only unknown at this point is how much poison? Are you willing to gamble on this and invest? It sounds to me that you are not. I do not blame current investors for talking the company up as some have probably lost a large chunk of their original investment already and are eager to see a recovery, but I fail to understand why those with no financial interest should do so unless they have ties with Lakehouse and/or Bob Holt.

Pure hypothesis, diduno, but a bit obvious to me. If he's nailed his name to the mast - & he doesn't need to - it's 'cos he's A. confident about what he can do & b. enjoys a challenge. Often, in these situations, you get someone who has what it takes to sort out the sh1t and that can turn a share into a bagger. No guarentees, obviously, but I remember the profits I made on CAPE (CIU) when they did a damage limitation and evolved into other activities. Bob Holt is probably a good bet to turn this one round, but the proof will be in the pudding!

Does Napoleon 14th have any substantive evidence of what Bob Holt is saying to prospective clients or is what he says pure hypothesis on his part? It appears from the the link below that Mears also had a 'rogue employee'. A member of staff made allegations of corruption although they turned out to be unproven/unsubstantiated. http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/social-housing-landlords-cheated-by-repair-firm-mears-group-tribunal-hears-9085454.html However, from the Hackney Citizen article it appears that Mr Holt is accepting that such 'rogue employees' existed at Lakehouse, although there is no indication of at what level within the company. The higher up, I would think the more serious this will be for Lakehouse. It must be accepted that Lakehouse plc is responsible for whatever criminal activity, if any, the rogue employees got up to. Undoubtedly we will find out in due course but it does appear to something rather serious to have been under investigation for 3 years and continues to be under investigation. Should this turn out to be a serious fraud, Lakehouse plc will, I would suggest, ultimately pay the price in terms of compensation and loss of reputation etc. Mr Holt will be unable to prevent whatever fate, if any, awaits Lakehouse.

Trendwatch has a full page write-up on LAKE. Headline is "The man who made MEARS a £0.5bn firm now heads Lakehouse". They mean Bob Holt OBE, whose standing is beyond dispute, & who is probably saying to prospective customers - "Forget the past; we're cleaning up on that. Now I'm in charge, this company is going to change without delay". His comment in the last RNS - "With a clear growth strategy and enhanced balance sheet, the Group looks forward to the future with considerable confidence." I suspect he can do it. Thinking of buying.....

The link below from Hackney Citizen confirms Lakehouse appointment for the £5m installation of communal heating to 703 flats. Evidently Lakehouse was the only bidder and Hackney awarded it the works in order not to lose funding. However, Hackney confirms that the fraud it reported to police in 2014 relating to a £9m contract managed by Lakehouse is still ongoing. It is clear from the article that Hackney expects the investigation to result in prosecution. It also appears that Lakehouse concedes it had 'rogue employees' whatever that actually means. Does it mean junior or senior members of staff being complicit in the fraud? Considering that it has so far taken 3 years to investigate and remains ongoing, it appears to be a rather sophisticated fraud that one cannot imagine junior members of staff having the ability, access or knowledge to undertake. hxxps://www.hackneycitizen.co.uk/2017/07/31/grenfell-hackney-rehired-lakehouse-5m-contract-despite-fraud-probe/

They don,t sound desperate too me, they seem very confident about the future. We are delighted to announce today the successful award of the significant landmark contract with Aberdeenshire Council, which endorses our strong reputation for delivering excellent service in local council residential property maintenance in Scotland. In addition, we are pleased to be able to update on the continued progress being made in our strategic growth divisions of Energy Services and Compliance. The new contract wins meet our stated objective of focusing on continuing to grow organically the Lakehouse Group. With a clear growth strategy and enhanced balance sheet, the Group looks forward to the future with considerable confidence Stockdale comments. Lakehouse has announced the disposal of its profitable, but non-core Orchard energy consultancy, which we believe has the benefits of further focusing the group and significantly cutting net debt. It has reiterated FY17 guidance. Our forecasts for FY18 and FY19, by implication, need to be cut to reflect the disposal of the Orchard, which contributed £2.5m to PBT in FY16. The trading statement also announces a number of encouraging contract awards. We retain our Buy recommendation and 75

Good to see a mark up, hopefully some common sense is getting back to share price after the torrid couple of months or so. also good to see a lot of talk about electric cars around at the moment, especially as one of lakehouse subsidiaries everwarm is one of a handful of companies that installs electric charging points. http://tinyurl.com/ybsls9s2

Another headwind for Lake is the metering business; I knew that take up was slow and indeed I have dragged my feet having one involved and the following FT article yesterday put it in focus for me https://www.ft.com/content/65ed1e3e-60d9-11e7-91a7-502f7ee26895 Not clear the profitability of Providor but as this from their March 7 2017 RNS indicates this is an area where they are active Quote Lakehouse, the asset and energy support services group, is pleased to announce the award of a major contract with Scottish Power ("the Contract"). The Contract commences on 1 May 2017 and requires the installation of some 400,000 meters, comprising both smart meters and "business as usual" installations. The Contract is anticipated to be worth £39m over its four year term. The Contract covers the West Midlands and is in addition to the Group's £37m domestic smart meter contract with Scottish Power across Northern Scotland, Wales and North West England, announced on 2 August 2016. The Group considers its metering business, Providor, to now be a leading contractor in the roll-out of smart meters on a nationwide basis, placing it well for future growth. unquote ref damo88/826 Remember this is what Lake said in the prelims quote we saw considerable success to that effect during the year including a five year fire alarm and emergency lighting systems for the London Borough of Kensington Chelsea unquote which suggests that their role was limited.

I share PUGUGLY's thoughts but hopefully not his looks! No, I do not believe either of us is paranoid. The bad news just keeps on coming. I am informed the Hackney Fraud investigation is far from over with more bad news expected over the coming months. (See Hackney Mayor's letter in Evening Standard) With all of this in the company's locker, how on earth was it allowed to float? Should the fraud investigation reveal any corruption on the part of Lakehouse, I wouldn't be surprised to see the authorities take action over this. Watch this space.

To expect that Lakehouse has not sought legal advice would be extremely naive. The fact that there has been no injunction against the Evening Standard does, I think, speak volumes. The information passed to me suggests that the Hackney fraud is more extensive than vfast states and involves a large number of people. Indeed, the Standard lists 10 people that police have called in. I am told that at least 3 senior Lakehouse employees have been dismissed and their superiors have since left. It cannot, at this point at least, be viewed that any of these are guilty of criminal offences. Only time will tell should the frauds allegedly perpetrated result in criminal charges and convictions. It is, however, confirmed that police are investigating and that being so, I think investors should be prepared for the worst. Like jbfnfn, I suspect there may also be an attempt to buy the company on the cheap.

Harwood now appear to be over 15% (RNS 6/7). Up from 14.5 % (RNS 1/6) What if any is the significance of this? Any Christopher Mills watchers on the board? Could there be an attempt to take LAKE private on the cheap?
