Yes HH I was excited about this company three years ago, wish I had bought my BMW that I had saved up for though instead of putting so much money in here, still driving the old Focus three years on. :-( Anyway, I think that if they can sell up it could be the best result for us small shareholders to get some of our investment back. In fact that might have been the idea all along, build the business up a bit, then flog it. We could be hanging around forever for a re-lising to happen.
ECSC profit-warned last week, due to a delay in converting their sales pipeline into reported revenue. Within about their first three months of their recent admission to AIM their headcount had increased from 57 to 98, so the company was trying to expand very fast. The company IPOed at 167p last December, and rose to over 570p in May, a very high multiple of sales, so understandably the shares have crashed badly on this disappointment, though still well above their IPO price. But this underpins my view that GOS Systems is a cut above most other small tech security companies. I explained why I preferred GOS to FLX for example in post 5817 on this thread: Hedgehog 100 11 Jun '15 - 21:26 - 5817 of 7553 0 1 Edit "Mark, Falanx (FLX) has been performing poorly recently, which could potentially have spooked one or two misinformed investors. Its interim revenue more than halved, and it recently raised more funds, partly to extend a licence if pays for technology it uses. 22/12/2014 07:00 UK Regulatory (RNS & others) Falanx Group Limited Interim Results "...Falanx Group's turnover for the six months ending 30 September 2014 was GBP0.97 million (2013: GBP2.18 million). This reduction on the 2013 revenues reflects the completion of the first phase in May 2014 of a major Falanx Resilience contract for a Middle Eastern Government...." But as I've previously observed (e.g. post 4196 above), it is a totally different (and inferior) animal to GOS Systems: - FLX is more cyber-focussed than GOS Systems, without GOS's cellular capabilities. - FLX is more consultancy-focussed than GOS Systems. - FLX lacks GOS's range of intellectual property. Therefore GOS Systems has higher barriers to entry and margins than FLX, and a higher proportion of recurring revenues. And whereas FLX has been burning quite large amounts as working capital, GOS has been able to use most of its funds to invest in its infrastructure to meet increased demand. From page 9 of GOS's November 2014 investor presentation (see post by someuwin 18 Dec'14 - 11:05 - 2882 of 5816 2 0): "• Cellular is the 'hard to do' piece • Significant technology barriers to entry and hence few market players" GOS Systems is high growth and high margin, with recurring revenues, great intellectual property (13 families of patents), and providing essential services. ... " But the best quote to describe GOS Systems comes from Singray: Singray105 6 Nov '14 - 10:32 - 2029 of 7553 " … Been showing GOS to some friends who understand this sort of stuff and they are saying WOW! Its like a private version of GCHQ."

That ECSC chart doesn't look quite so impressive all of a sudden.
There you go Hedgie Up to date and Present info for us lucky holders. All quiet on the GOS front, anyone with any news feel free to post. Last time I spoke to I think it was Trevor Wells was in March or Feb, he said they are looking to build "Critical Mass" and that they would be reviewing the listing situation come the end of the year. There seems NO BETTER time than to list this ASAP, perhaps on the back of another acquisition. They would be able to catch the security wave of interest very well in the market. Let's hope they are busy. ATB KM
KM, Could you please add to the thread header a link to the Intelicrypt Tactical Solutions website, as we are now shareholders in ITS (the new owner of GOS Systems) rather than TGL: HTTP:// And also to the website of Cambridge Quantum Computing, in which ITS has a minority stake: HTTP:// Thanks. The Touchstone Gold website no longer exists, which is reassuring as the intention was to dissolve the company. P.S. I've just realised that it's two years to the day since TGL was last traded on the stockmarket - doesn't time fly! And I feel confident that it's been two years of encouraging progress for GOS Systems. In addition, I would also hope that there has been progress in the following two areas: • CQCL's Quantum Key Encryption ("QKE") products that were expected to be available to GOS Systems last year. • Acquisitions (of the right type and price of course).

Cheers hedgehog.
British tech security behemoth Sophos (SOPH) has nearly doubled this year to 456.6p, a market cap. of £2.1Bn., on results ahead of expectations. "SOPHOS : global leader in cyber-security" This is clearly encouraging for the performance of GOS Systems, and helpful for the intended floatation of Intelicrypt Tactical Solutions. Remember that ITS's floatation is dependent upon both decent company progress for GOS Systems and decent market conditions, and the revival of the tech security sector this year certainly looks to have more than fulfilled that second criteria. Also remember that SOPH aborted IPOs in 2007 and 2009, before finally floating 'third time lucky' on 26th. June 2015, which puts the aborted IPO of GOS Systems in 2013 into context. Things are also looking good on the quantum computing front: "May 15, 2017 D-Wave Closes $50M Facility to Fund Next Generation of Quantum Computers ... This latest funding comes on the heels of significant momentum for D-Wave. Milestones achieved so far in 2017 include: ..." HTTP://

Does anyone know Trevor or Waseems email address? I tried using the contact us form on the new website and the Captcha does not work so I can't send a message.
Cheesy, Intelicrypt has been up and running for a while now. Http://
Touchstone website now seems gone. Still no intelicrypt one.
Peter would you mind sharing the email address IK suggested. I wouldn't mind dropping them some questions. The touchstone one never gets a response. I have only had calls with Waseem so far.
A belated thanks for that from me also Peter. I am thinking that the chance of re-listing is no more than 50-50 in the next 2 years. The chance of actually eventually making a gain on my investment is probably less than 10%. But who knows? I have mentally and financially written off the shares, so anything at all would be a bonus.
Thanks for the update, Peter.
Thanks Peter. I need something to work after the Neos swindle.
Thanks Peter
Thank you Peter.
Peter, thank you for the update and taking the time to let us know, fingers crossed the momentum continues and a listing is eventually possible. This appears to still have life in it yet. Have a good weekend.
Thanks a lot for that Peter. Very much appreciated

Ok All I have just got off of the phone to Idris. We had a Very good conversation about the business. Things are moving forward and confidence is high. They are looking at ways to improve growth as interest and inquiries have improved greatly through the events they have been attending. And of course the security issues faced by every organisation on the planet. There were no promises made which I respected, no point in that anyway. But I certainly came away thinking that Idris and Ilyas are in it to win it. So I will remain positive that they can turn those inquiries into orders.
Peter I quite agree. It's been almost two years since the suspension now, I think its time that he gave us more fact than fiction, just a bit of honesty for a change. If we are dead in the water I'd prefer to know that now so that I can move on. Good luck, hope we get some answers soon.
Singray I can understand your sentiments. Pretty much what happens when companies don't keep their shareholders updated in an official capacity. It's all well and good telling people over the phone that things are on the up and looking good for end of year. But how many companies have we all heard saying the exact same thing and never achieving. So I will do my best to find out some more from Idris but it will still only be word of mouth unfortunately.
I imagine that they thought that us small shareholders would just go away, and left them alone by now. Most have done just that and written this off, I noticed that the LSE board has hardly any of the old posters on there posting any more, and we have only a handful of regulars. It must be rather annoying for Stanhill and co that some of us have not got the message and are still here and still asking questions. It seems to me that there is something about TGL, from start to Finnish, that stinks to high heaven! As I said the other day, it is this company that convinced me to stop all AIM/penny share investments, draw a line and take the hit/hits.
Mark I tried to call Idris last week. I have left Text's and emails but assumed he was away. So I will see if I get any replies tomorrow.
