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.

No news or update from the company - In view of the rumours in the market this is to me a worry - message received is that they may have substance - Thoughts or am I being paranoid ??

My contact tells me that lakehouse were responsible for the fire risk assessment on the tower and not just the fire alarm system If correct, this is a much more significant risk For the business

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?

I would like to think Lakehouse will seek legal advice regarding the Evening Standard. ES appear to be targeting the company implying the Grenfell fire is all down to Lakehouse. The Grenfell tragedy has nothing to do with the company. The fraud is relating back 2014/15 and Lakehouse is not implicated but 2 ex-employee which have been sacked are being investigated along with ex-employees from the subcontractor and people from Hackney Homes.

Lakehouse have stated they did not install/design the fire alarm system however they were responsible for the maintenance. And from all available information the fire alarm system worked as it was design to do so. From news articles that I have read when the fire alarm sounded residents were told to stay in their apartments which could be argued in hindsight might not have been wise advice. Until all the facts are known people and the media will always speculate and jump on anything regardless whether it is true or false to try and create a story. It is a shame for this to happen because it does not serve any purpose for the people who have lost their life’s and for the residents who survived this terrible tragedy.

We should be mindful that Lakehouse did not install the cladding at Grenfell Tower. I think it has had more than enough bad publicity already re Hackney Homes which, as I pointed our earlier, it appears not to refute. Whether or not the alarms they maintained in Grenfell worked, will presumably be decided by others in the future if it is at all possible.

Small Cap Value Report (from Stockopedia): Lakehouse (LON:LAKE) It's always very difficult when there's been a disaster like the Grenfell Tower tragedy. Everyone thinks about the human consequences first, and making sure that the politicians & civil servants ensure that something like this can never happen again. That's what matters most. It's bound to have economic consequences for companies in the sector, which also have to be considered. LAKE put out an RNS last night, which goes into some detail about various negative press stories recently. Apparently one of its subsidiaries maintained, or assessed the fire alarms in Grenfell Tower. I think this share is best avoided. Even if the company is blameless, that doesn't always matter, as people primarily want a scapegoat. Also it has a very weak balance sheet.

re 26 Jun '17 - 16:46 - 796 of 813 Nurdin I hope their cladding contracts - as Nurdin pointed out were costed on the basis of fire proof cladding and not as permitted under what were the then current building reg and or they had a clause in the contract permitting them to upgrade the cladding at clients cost if the regs changed - Whatever I can see possible major delays to all cladding contracts until the regs are upgraded. Could be major opportunities for LAKE or subject to contract terms and Hackney major downside - One to watch (imo) but possible high risk either way.

The bottom of the article is quite interesting in that Lakehouse have won some Adjudications against Hackney relating to the works on the Hackney Homes Eco Project. Whilst claiming that their works were satisfactory Lakehouse terminated one of their Sub-Contractors alleging that the works were unsatisfactory and the consequence of that termination is that the sub-contractor concerned has been forced out of business with hundreds of thousands owed to it. Shame on you Lakehouse. You treatment of hard working people is appalling.

While vfast presumably refers to the Evening Standard article as gutter journalism, I note that Lakehouse does not dispute the Hackney Homes news in the article: fraud investigations and arrests etc etc, but merely claims that Hackney and Grenfell are wholly unrelated. Is that comforting to anyone particularly when the Mayor of Hackney refers to an ongoing criminal investigation and a contemplated civil action? I do not believe the mayor would make such statements and possibly leave the council open to claims of libel unless he was 100% certain of what he writes.
