Dont think it matters, the price will start to move sharply, if a 11k buy pays 16p on a 12.5-15.5p spread then it's going to keep moving ! Very very generous Libc who sold those shares and now bid just a paltry 13.5p online...lol...they are seriously having a laugh here

On a popular stock and bulletin board thread there would probably be 50 posts on the subject. But the market makers wont make a market in the stock, fantastic if you hold, dont seem to be many of them judging by the lack of response of that trade. I'm debating is buying 5k's at 15.5p going to be worth it at one at a time, with Bob Morton paying such a premium for size he sees value and he's not often wrong. Lets see how the mm's open after that holding news, with no stock around and that news they are completely wasting their time bidding 12.5p or 13p online, who's going to sell now at that price with Morton trebling up at a premium !

Very old article but nothing has changed ! Bob Morton, shrewd investor By Algernon Craig Hall | 19:29:39 | 05 May 2000 (WEEKEND PROFILE) Citywire has been tracking entrepreneur Bob Morton's secret share deals for months because he can move the share prices of companies he takes large stakes in; this week Citywire tempted Bob out of the shadows to come in and talk to our team. Morton began his career as a chartered accountant. After years spent advising people on how to build businesses and protect their money at his St Albans practice he decided to roll up his sleeves and get his own hands dirty in 1970. The business he became involved in was an exhaust fitting company called Euro Exhaust Centres. After launching it with just £1000 of capital it became Europe's number one exhaust fitter before being reversed into Kwik Fit in 1979 for £11 million. Morton sees his role in a venture as providing financial expertise and guidance to a company. He always looks to work with 'operators' and sees the people involved and their independence from him as the key to the success of an enterprise. He describes his role as helping other people make money and in the process adding to his own wealth. Morton told citywire.co.uk: 'People are 100% of the business. If you empower people and then take away their power they can't function. Everyone I work with has to be charged with running their own businesses.' He needs two pre-requisites before he will become involved in a venture or make an investment – there must be an exit strategy and he must always be able to cover his downside. Morton does not usually exit until he's seen considerable growth , although he cannot claim to have a 100% success rate. Who can? He has a value philosophy in so far as he will not overpay to get into high growth markets but will always look for companies with good growth potential. So, a few examples of some of Morton's past deals. Morton told citywire.co.uk that Norank was started with £1000 worth of capital and was eventually sold for £10 million. Hapfield Estates was started with just £100 before being sold for £19 million. Spargo Consulting was set up with £125,000 and went to £40 million

There's the RNS. Hawk investment holdings are the buyer, a google search throws up nothing so need to delve to find out more. Somebody else had a order in as well and all they could get was 5k at 15.5p and those greedy mm's still did not move up...shocking.

Egg. Just spoke to selftrade, glitch in the system. Online limits are sell 37500 at 13p, buy 1000 at 15.5p. Extremely generous, that large trade might have been a cross trade after all, impossible to buy more than 5k and the spread is too wide to get involved so i'm just going to watch for the spread to narrow first, one of the mm's is going to have to go at least 13.5p bid here to try and get stock otherwise they will get no takers especially after that trade at 16.5p.

2 days ago i might have just done that :-)) But had a bit of a paper hit like many last few days despite reducing on a few stocks. I'll try again tomorrow, dont fancy my chances of getting stock at 15p or less.

No chance methinks. 1k max online buy at 15.5p Think there is a fault with selftrade's bid size as i can sell 25 million at 13p :-)) That's most of the company lol

So 4% of the company bought at a 20% premium to the then mid price. That sounds very predatory to me. Thoughts ?

"not much happening here" Apart from that huge premium trade pointing out by fillipe on the CR thread, i've tried to get jsut 25k but they wont even offer 5k online even on that 12.5-15.5p spread and it's just 5k nms so my hands are tied, no doubting that trade went to a mm and not a cross because a 250k sale online gets accepted with a premium as you would expect if a mm has sold all that at 16.5p. Placed a order but dont expect to get filled.

Yes, good news I think. Not so much that PAC will not be on the board but more that so many of the senior peeps, below plc board, were against the proposed appointment. V. important in a peeps business, I think. I'm keen on the bit.... "We are in the final stages of a major turnaround of the business and will continue to work on behalf of all shareholders to improve the operating performance and value of their Company." - " I reckon this one has a long way to run, not overnight but definitely om=n the way there now. f

Good news, I think: AGM Motion Withdrawn The AGM of Media Square plc ("MSQ") is being held at 12 noon on Wednesday August 26th in London. The Notice of Meeting was sent to shareholders on July 29th. The Board of Media Square plc has received notification that Prime Active Capital plc ("PAC"), which is a shareholder in MSQ, has withdrawn Resolution 8 which it had asked to be inserted into the AGM agenda. Resolution 8 sought to have Mr Peter Lynch, the Chairman of PAC, appointed as a Director of MSQ. The Board unanimously recommended to shareholders to vote against this resolution as explained in the Notice of Meeting. The Board of MSQ has issued the following comment: "We are delighted that Prime Active Capital has withdrawn its unwelcome and unhelpful demand to appoint Peter Lynch as a Director of MSQ. We are in the final stages of a major turnaround of the business and will continue to work on behalf of all shareholders to improve the operating performance and value of their Company."

Bob is absolutely spot-on, although Parry won't be too worried about job security - he's got loads of them - he's more worried about losing his massive incentives for turning the business around. Incidentally, Jeremy Middleton is quoted as saying that he did three months consultancy for Media Square after he left the board and the annual report says his consultancy company was paid £382,000. That's an hourly rate of c£750! Nice work, if you can get.
