I think it is just the MMs playing with the price to see if there is any interest. You talk of 13% but what is actually happening is that the bid price is constant at 0.75 and the offer price is being bounced between 1 and 1.25p. The last trade was on the 27th to the grand value of two pounds thirty eight pee. What a laugh this one is. I am only here because I bought years ago and my holding is now worth less than dealing costs. I hold in case I need a loss for CGT purposes. I also held in a PEP - when this was transferred between brokers and I persuaded the old broker to give them to a 'sharegift' charity - cheaper than paying the £10 per stock fee. By my reckoning this should be suspended for non-production of a/cs.

Lsst year was my Annus Horriblis in terms of shares.Reason...I believed what the company was saying in it's press releases/annual reports.It seems to me that to many companies are are now prepared to be economical with the truth or don't give the full picture.Of course, I'm not saying that is the case with Ross.Or am I? Still.Got the end of year figures to look forward to!

I was surprised at this announcement given they had said that GEL was going into 08 with a good order book. I had a bit of luck for a change having sold out on Monday for at the same price I bought them at - so just down on the dealing costs.

My thoughts are that with GEL gone Ross is now limping to a slow and timely end.Can't see why they don't just close up shop now and put both company and shareholder out of their misery.

In my opinion its never going to happen.Think that Grande will be looking for the exit re their investment.Ross will once again be on it's own. But,that may be no bad thing.Think they have a new (could even their first for many years), Managing Director.Be interesting to see how he has faired.

Just had a quick read of their report. No direct reference to ross. Grande have made a thumping great loss so I can't see them investing in ross just yet, but you never know I suppose.

Their major shareholder is declaring their results today (grande holdings) and presumably will say something about ross in their report.

Why today? Under listing rules they have until the end of the month to report and last year they left it to the very last day. But what does this company care about listing rules? It has already broken them by failing to issue an 'Interim management statement' so in theory should be suspended now anyway.

DaveVanian.In the time I have held this stock, must be 10yrs+, I think they've had a couple of rights issues. Fortunately,the last one I bypassed, as it was clear that we were just throwing good money after bad.I'm surprised investment magazines bother to cover shares like these as it seems clear that this share is never likely to deliver.I shall hold on in the event that one day I may get an opportunity to go to one of their AGM's and give them what for.Although, it's likely the gates will be closed when I get down there.

I've e-mailed Ross a few times and never had a response. I'm planning to sell Ross as a tax write off against gains else where this year, in total i've lost abourt £10K with this useless share. Grande sound like a right shower of crooks when you read about their exploits elsewhere. I'm sure there is method in their madness for having Ross ...but i don't think shareholders will ever benefit. We were the real mugs buying into the Rights issue all those years ago ...

As tiredbroker says, there is a history to Grande holdings dating back to 1990's,something which I only spotted a few nights ago.Also, if they were serious about using Ross as a vehicle to roll out their Sansui products, they would have done this a year or so ago.Keniworth? Could this actually be Kenilworth? If so I think they are an American Inestment company.Problem is trying to contact the company and getting them to clarify a few points.Everytime I e mail the address's given on website it just bounces back.Anyone had any luck trying to contact them? Thanks tiredbroker for reminding me why I put these shares in the bottom drawer.

What I don't understand then is why they(Grande) make such positive statements in the published reports? Why bother - surely they should just tell it as it is? Or am I being naive in some way?

Looks to me that with £5.2m of debt to major shareholders, and turnover which, even if GEL secures additional work, is unlikely to exceed £2m in any foreseeable year, there's really zero value left for the shareholders. Seems most likely that Grande has no plans at all for Ross, but that winding it up would crystallise a significant loss, which is avoided by simply allowing Ross to limp along. I can see no reason why they wouldn't already have used Ross to launch consumer electronics products onto the UK market, if that was their intention. Grande has a shadowy past, as best, and Keniworth (surely a misprint, if ever there was one) doesn't appear to exist apart from its role as a Ross shareholder - certainly, a Google search finds nothing, while you'd expect a company of any substance to come up with a few pages at least.

If you hold more than 50% then your accounts consolidate it as a subsidiary. If less, but you have some control, then it is classed as an associate. Grande had 70.8% of the shares until July 06 when it sold 29.4% to Keniworth Capital leaving it with 41.4%, hence the change in status. I did ask at the time (post 149) who Keniworth are but have still not found out. We do know from the interim results that: "At 30 June 2007 total borrowings from Keniworth Capital Ltd were £3,484k and £1,721k from The Grande Group". This gives them an overall greater interest than Grande, but no board representation.

The engineering arm should be close to making a profit in its own right imo. This business has been nursed back to a healthy state and could then be ready to offload. Looking forward to seeing the results to see if my thoughts have any foundation, or not, as the case may be.

Tell me about it.Had a look at Grande's Annual report.RGP is no longer described as a subsidiary but an associate.This is all news to me as I wasn't aware that it was a subsidiary in first place.Strange that it has also reduced it's stake in Ross. This roll out of Sansui products seems to be taking a long time.My impression is that they have run into problems on this front. With regard to selling off the engineering arm, my view is that you have to have something that another company wants before putting it up for sale, which they just don't have at present. You're right,I'm holding onto my money for now,despite fact that the share price was up today.

I have assumed it is going to use Ross for Sansui at some point and sell-off its engineering arm. All speculation on my part so please do not invest on the back of my post. This is a high risk play so dyor.
