i lost £35k on one bleak january day in 2018 when GGP did a similar collapse..wiped me out completely because i was convinced GGP was the one..it turned out i was correct but had to start from scratch again £500...i spread bet because you can make quicker gains but its more risky.

Commisserations to holders....my intuition sadly proved right..... multibagger - 24 Aug 2018 - 12:49:56 - 1730 of 2623 Octagonal = GIS = Overlooked and extremely undervalued. - OCT Hi Redarmy, We meet again ! I was in this and got out about a year ago for a modest profit. I felt that I could not trust the management and not entirely sure if their business model was sustainable or Enronesque ! I put that money back in ARC :)

so best to buy in now and sell on the morning of the AGM 13TH january just before 11am so Gunn doesnt have time to mop up shares

ex-dividend of 24th DecToday 17:17 With the 0.1p per share ex-dividend date of 24th December, and a payment date of 12th January, might this stock attract day traders between now and 24th December who want to take advantage of the dividend payout?

Well Roger Barby's a lawyer, so unless Gunn's cut a deal with him (presumably he has), he'll be looking very closely.

It would usually be the FCA, but only if we could prove a fraudulent or law breaking move on the company's part, or John Gunn.We won't know that until we discover what arrangements the company will make for ordinary shareholders.In theory, our shares carry exactly the same rights as Gunn's.In practice, he can change the company's direction and make money disappear from us, by being the actual decision maker in chief.

Fatty boy Cornish was asleep. The exchange should have suspended trading under rule 40 to protect investors. 40. The Exchange may suspend the trading of AIM securities where:- trading in those securities is not being conducted in an orderly manner;- it considers that an AIM company has failed to comply with these rules;- the protection of investors so requires; or- the integrity and reputation of the market has been or may be impaired by dealings in those securities.Suspensions are effected by a dealing notice.

The list of major shareholders including in todays Final Results is shown as having 77.87 of the shares, with J Gunn holding 52.89%. This list includes Roger Barby as holding 9.23% of the shares. Others are Interactive Investors 5.84%, Jim Nominees 5.67%, and Vidacos @4.24%. Is it conceivable that all these shareholders have already signed up to this de-listing idea or is this a total shot in the dark?

Perfectly put. There will be a lot of adverse publicity in the coming days and weeks.

Quite shocking what Gunn has done here. To claim that he has no immediate need to raise more capital and therefore doesn't want to stay listed is a total cop out. The whole point of AIM is to raise capital for early stage companies. Investors take a risk on those in the hope that ideas can be turned into cash making machines. So its high risk for high reward. Letting Gunn take this private as soon as it's cash generative is a total kick in the teeth for investors, but also totally undermines the market.

... that's probably true.But the offer he'll have to make for that final 10% won't be at these measly levels, because it will take time, and the company's cash position will continue to improve.

Dave 4545 £27,000 loss on one share is horrible but I doubt FCA will be bothered. I don’t think that Gunn has done anything illegal. Morally it stinks not to have stated an offer price today and cratered share price but shareholders don’t have to accept his offer but it looks many have already sold out possibly to Gunn. I suspect his plan is to accumulate enough shares to delist and then push to get 90% and squeeze out last 10%.

A surprise announcement today - whether or not they had the reported cash will be interesting to see in the long run. I'm afraid the morale of the story is never invest in a company with "bad boys (and girl)" in charge - you can never do a good deal with a bad person is the Warren Buffett quote that springs to mind.

Very disappointing. I'd previously feared Gunn would take it private, but had expected him to do it via some sort of tender offer, so a delisting does seem very unfair to loyal private shareholders. There have always been a few nagging questions about the cash with this company, and sadly it'll be harder to ever prove for certain if the cash really exists once this is delisted. Why if they were swimming in cash was there never a progressive dividend policy/return of cash or a buy & build strategy?
