2trying: harry - may I respectfully ask ? why would you want to buy this ? it seems a little short of assets . would there be anything in it for the small investor (me!) ? thanks .
dnfa1975: wheres alpesh patel investor His first stock market floatation was in 2006 - AllTrue Investments Plc.
topvest: Leo seems to do his deals through Alfred Henry now. Only interested because I have a stack of Award International shares. Leo K. doesn't have a great record on creating shareholder value, so investors need to be cautious. Always room for such shell activity towards the bottom end of aim though.
double6: Link being, micro-cap companies coming back to the interest of the investor - some bargains out there for Listed Companies to put their money in to.

ben angel: The genuine honest and hard working investor is not as gullible as he/she was 10-15 years ago when Leo and Weller first started out engineering RTO's on the poorly regulated unlisted (usm) and now it's replacement AIM markets. The stock exchange are well aware of Knifton and Weller business methods and situations like this will or should not be repeated in future. Sooner or later this company will need to tap the market for additional finance for working capital or funding to finance another acquisition ..thats fine it shouldn't be a problem providing it addresses all the points I have mentioned first. I can guarantee without restoring the balance in favour of all shareholders, any new issue by this company will flop unless the management changes it's spots and begins to protect all shareholders in future and not just themselves and their own interests.
leadersoffice: I agree with your comments Ben. But what about the way the markets are going? after the global markets find there bottom which I think is some way off yet... financial companies in general stockbrokers are going to be just disappearing. i think it will be a hell of along time before private investors put money into the market. So the likes of Montague Pitman will probably be out of business. You might think im being over the top but i cant see the general situation getting better for years.
ben angel: lol ...I shouldn't think so..I just believe this company will eventually fail it's own shareholders unless the directors ...start to direct the company in the interest of it's own investors instead of abusing its own powers !!!
ben angel: Thought for the weekend question to readers of the thread..If Leo and his board are happy to issue 50 million shares plus options for IX a loss making many shares and options will the same board allocate/award a company turning in annual profits on a regular basis ? .. It's unfortunate for existing private investors because taking into account all these IX losses and closure costs. Alltrue shares are overvalued at current market levels regards Ben
fenseal2: RNS Number:2581Z Alltrue Investments PLC 29 June 2007 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 29 June 2007 ALLTRUE INVESTMENTS PLC ("the Company") AUDITED REPORT AND FINANCIAL STATEMENTS FOR THE YEAR ENDED 31 DECEMBER 2006 Chairman's Statement The Company successfully completed the acquisitions of Falcon Securities Holdings Limited and Information Exchange Limited which were approved by shareholders at the EGM of the Company held on 1 February 2006. The enlarged share capital following these acquisitions was re-listed on AIM on 3 March 2006. During the year under review turnover amounted to #1,029,000 which produced a loss on ordinary activities before taxation of #198,000. This loss was largely attributable to the Information Exchange subsidiary where despite turnover more than doubling over the previous year increased spending on staff and office overheads plus additional direct costs of staging extra IX events pushed overall costs higher than had been anticipated. In view of this performance no additional consideration shares are due to be issued to the vendors of IX under the sale and purchase agreement between the Company and the IX vendors. Since the year end, and therefore not included in these financial statements, we were instrumental in establishing a further stock broking business, Montague Pitman Stockbrokers Limited, in which we currently hold 81% of the issued shares therein or 51% on a fully diluted basis assuming full conversion of the outstanding loan stock and subject to certain profit targets in the current year being achieved. We are pleased with the progress of each company and the cross selling opportunities we originally identified when these companies were purchased are beginning to come through. We look forward to reporting further progress to you in the future. For further information please contact: Leo Knifton, Alltrue Investments plc on 020 7251 3762 Roland Cornish, Beaumont Cornish Limited on 020 7628 3396 ALLTRUE INVESTMENTS PLC CHIEF EXECUTIVE'S REPORT ________________________________________________________________________________ Falcon Securities Holdings Limited Falcon Securities Holdings Limited trades through its wholly owned subsidiary Falcon Securities (UK) Limited ('Falcon'). Falcon's business is focused on advisory and trading services on behalf of high net worth and sophisticated investors predominately in UK securities and corporate broking services to AIM and Plus Markets listed companies. Total revenue grew by 59% during 2006 producing an operating profit compared to a loss overall in the previous year. Profit on ordinary activities after taxation was #91,641 compared to a loss of #14,956 in the previous year. The advisory broking business has expanded over the course of the year with an increasing focus on execution through spread betting contracts where we utilise services provided by third party providers. This approach not only generates commission income but in addition a recurrent income stream through the partial rebate of the financing charges levied by the third party providers. We continue to look for other brokers to join this area but strong financial markets have deterred individuals from moving with their clients. In corporate broking we participated in a number of transactions on both AIM and Plus Markets. A number of our corporate clients are investment vehicles and in some cases the listing has either been suspended or lost following the change in AIM Regulations announced in 2006. Nevertheless we expect such companies to be engaged in corporate transactions during 2007 and to regain their listing. As announced on 9 March 2007 Falcon has appointed Montague Pitman Stockbrokers Limited ('MPS') as an Appointed Representative. MPS is majority owned by Alltrue and is complementary to Falcon's activities given its focus on retail style customers. MPS contributes to the shared overhead and also generates commission revenue for Falcon. The business has grown rapidly from a standing start with over 400 clients already signed up as at the beginning of June and has very recently established a CFD trading team. The business is making a useful contribution to the Group and is expected to grow rapidly. Information Exchange Limited The year 2006 brought many positive changes for Information Exchange Limited ('IX') as the company relocated into offices in the heart of the City of London and expanded the number of IX events produced. The company began the year by launching a new spring time IX Investor event held over two days in May to focus on medium to longer term investment strategies including property investments. Like most launch events the show was not expected to fill to capacity in the first year, and anticipated interest from the property investment sector was weaker than expected due to an already overcrowded and very competitive marketplace for such events. An excellent visitor attendance of over 2,500 and positive response from the present exhibitors, however, added up to a successful event ensuring allowing the company to hold a repeat show in 2007 albeit with a more stock market related theme for which IX is best known. The main event of the year, the October IX Investor show, remained well attended by investors and companies and the company was pleased to see approximately 20% of the exhibitor revenue derive from new clients including US firms 'TradeStation' and 'Nasdaq'. However, with stand space at capacity in Olympia Conference Centre and almost record attendances of over 4,000 private investors 2007 will see IX moving the shows to the much larger ExCel Conference Centre in the Docklands, London. December saw the launch of IX Forex Trader show. This was a highly focussed and niche event aimed at sophisticated private FX traders. Sponsors included Chicago Mercantile Exchange and Saxo Bank - both new clients to IX events and this targeted one day event attracted up to 1,500 traders. The company plans to run IX Forex Trader again in 2007 but as part of a larger IX Investor show given the increased floor space at ExCeL. IX also hosted six weekend seminars for investors with Alpesh Patel as tutor. While not attracting the numbers expected the events were well received and professionally run. The company also relaunched the IX website in July 2006 incorporating downloadable video seminars from the live events, links to products and other interesting items to leverage sales from online visitors and create a more valuable community for investors. ALLTRUE INVESTMENTS PLC CHIEF EXECUTIVE'S REPORT ________________________________________________________________________________ IX succeeded in growing turnover by over 100% in 2006 to #598,088 although increased spending on staff and office overheads plus additional direct costs of staging extra IX events pushed costs higher than budgeted resulting in an operating loss for the year of #159,533. The challenges for the business 2007 are to accommodate the same rate of growth and financial performance of the existing IX events and online business, while streamlining the costs and overheads where possible to increase profit levels.
