The company have said that they will move back into profit this year. With the improvements they have made they should then stay there.

This must be one of the most illiquid shares on the main market. Last traded on April 13th. and not even the results could trigger a buy or sell.

It will be interesting to see if Ross gets any sub contract work from this: BAE Systems gets $412M contract YORK, Pa. (AFX) - British defense contractor BAE Systems PLC said on Monday it received two contracts worth up to $412 million from a division of the U.S. Army. BAE will upgrade and repair 262 Bradley Combat Systems military vehicles used in the war in Iraq to protect soldiers from threats of desert warfare. The contract worth $177.7 million, covered under the fiscal 2007 defense budget, includes a contract worth up to $48 million previously awarded to get materials ahead of time. Such materials are known as "long-leaded" or "long-lead" material items. The defense contractor will begin delivery of the vehicles in December 2008 through July 2008. Under the second contract, BAE will provide long-lead materials for an anticipated award to reset 303 Bradley A3 vehicles and 173 Bradley Operation Desert Storm vehicles. The contract worth up to $234.2 million is covered under the fiscal 2008 defense budget. The company will begin work on the vehicles in July 2008 through May 2009. BAE has received $3.5 billion in contracts from the Army for fiscal years 2005 through 2007.

Does the fact that Qinetic appears to have won a large contract to provide training equipment have any effect on the Ross Group ?

Although the figures were dissapointing. What made the results different from so many that went before is the fact that they prepare the market for good news going forward. References to further orders at Gel and increasing Sansui market share and a return to profit in 2007 all bode well for the future. No surprise then that a 200,000 buy has highlighted Ross`s recovery potential.

This share is a mystery, that is why I haven't had a punt in it to date. I just suspect that one day I will see it on the leaderboard with a 100%+ rise and I will wish I'd bought some. But for the last year or so it would have been sitting in my portfolio at a loss. As everyone keeps saying something must give eventually!

The problem is that shareholders are perpetually in the dark as to what is going on in the background (on the other side of the world). We are just fed a few morsels from time to time. The other day, 4 months after the prelims, the annual report arrived so I made a comparison. There is an extra paragraph saying that an initiative to bring "a new European flat screen assembly business" into the group failed thanks to the UKLA so they are now looking at alternatives. The following sentence has now been omitted re San Gain: "The Directors will request that the main shareholder considers formally returning the financing to a long term basis as part of any potential acquisition". I am still looking at the report but I note that there are 136,180,924 shares in issue. If you take away the 71% owned by Grande/Kenilworth the rest have a value of £790k at 2p. In these circumstances I cannot understand why the company retains a full listing - it would be cheaper to buy out the rest of us and save the cost. The only reason I could think of was that Grande (or part thereof) might reverse in and get a London listing and the benefit of Ross's principal asset which is its massive capital losses which can be used to offset tax. However, if that were so they would surely have done it by now. Of course, you could always go to the AGM on the 22nd. in Southampton and ask!

Maybe we should have a closer look at Mr Adrian Ma (chairman and MD of RGP) other interests. We all know he is Chairman and CEO of Grande. He was appointed Chairman and CEO of Emerson Radio Corp on 04.04.06 they have revenues of $233.8M for fiscal 2006, and well well Grande own 46% of them. And they state in their report for year ending 31.04.06 "Through our relationship with Grande,we hope to benifit from cross lisensing and marketing opportunities,particularly in Europe and Asia". His other interest Director of Lafe Technology Ltd an Investment Holding Company that has a manufacturing plant Panyu City China,making hard disc drives etc etc,and well well Grande have just brought a 6.29% holding on 15.June.06. Just maybe the holding that Keniworth Capitol took have something to do with Emerson Radio,although the share price does not reflect it yet, something is going on in the background and that is for sure.

I cannot find info on these funds anywhere, so they may be new funds set up to take these holdings. The main thing to consider is the timing. It seems that we may have got GEL sorted out and the Sansui business seems ready to kick off, now we have what appears to be a new investment vehicle picking up a near 30% stake. This all points to there being some action in this share in the near future.

this sounds like some Special Purpose Vehicle made up by Grande as some kinda tax dodge or scam, their share price has halved in HK !!

I have only just seen the news so I need to do some research. Clearly though my thoughts about some action happening in the near term after years of doing nothing are correct. Is this a Grande sale or is it a transfer. Certainly there has been no volume so these shares have been transfered-WHY? Hho controls these funds. Clearly there are many questions and i will be doing some reasearch. Clearly though something is happening and the picking up of the 29% stake( just short of the need to bid) is proof that the time is nigh

Curiouser and curiouser Who is Keniworth Capital? (Nil return from Google) Why has Grande sold? What now of Fido's theories?

Just as a PS to the above post, one of the dissapointments of the last results was a "delayed" MOD order. I would have thought that our new man at GEL would now be working hard to pin this order down. Note that the order was only delayed and I expect some news in the near future. Once it is seen by the market that this company is moving forward again then we can expect a re rating on GEL alone.

DaveVanian, Clearly there is a game plan here and its more a question of when and not if. Most of the board are made up of Grande directors. Grande are also the major shareholders. It is obvious that there is all a reason to this and when this all becomes clear then the share price of Ross is going to be catapulted higher in very quick time and is one of those shares that could treble in just a couple of days. So then, when is the question. Grande are a world wide electrical company that have been intent on expanding in the UK and Europe. There interest in Ross makes it clear that Ross will be the vehicle used for this purpose. This being so then GEL does not fit well and in my opinion will be sold off when it is a profitable company and a good price can be got for it. That will leave Ross with just the electricals to concentrate on. In my opinion events have gone thus. Grande wanted a vehicle for European expansion and chose Ross. Expansion on this scale is not set up overnight and takes a lot of planning. Likewise Ross needed cleaning up before it was up to the job. In the case of GEL they clearly think that it is a good profitable company otherwise they would not have wasted there time turning it around. But having done that I see it going in a trade sale at a good price. So what makes me feel that the push into electricals via Sansui is close. Over a year ago Ross said that it intended to move back into electrical distribution. This obviously takes time to set up. A short while ago Ross stated that their first consignment of electricals had sold well with half of it sold within a couple of weeks. This was on short term credit. In my opinion this was just a tester for the market and Ross have subsequenty applied for long term credit from Grande. As grande own most of Ross this is just a formality and it therefore means in my opinion that they are almost ready for the off. The Sansui website on Ross`s website is not live yet but it is obvious to me that things are being readied for the off.

Hi Fido, thanks for your thought's. I have held these now since Sept last year and to say that I have been dissapointed with the share price is an understatement. I am just glad to finally see something positive coming from the company, probably won't hear anything now for another 6 months I guess...LOL, although if last year is anything to go by some interin results should be released in the next couple of months.

enewman36, Its not surprising as this has been a difficult share for a long time and that is why research needs to be done. In my opinion, the destiny of Ross boils down to the timing of Grandes UK expansion. As majority shareholders they have controlled the share price for a long time. Their aim is to use Ross as their vehicle for UK and European expansion and it is a case of when they decide to press the start button. Its always been my view that GEL will be made into a profitable company and then sold off. It could be that profits are now being made on that operation. As for the electrical side, Ross last reported that they had applied for long term credit arrangements with Grande having experienced good Sansui sales. It could well be that Grande are now moving forward with Ross and if that is the case then Ross are going to be transformed. Like I said, research needs to be done but there is a lot of upside to a company written off by PI`s but supported by Grande if now is indeed the time that Grande through Sansui become as big a name in this country as they are in other parts of the world.
