Is alanadale this MM character, if so, surely the restriction imposed by the court is being breached??? For the record on share gifting. bones12 Mar '19 - 22:04 - 1266 of 1290 "Just for passing but relevant interest, Mira Makar became CEO in 1997 and separately John Rigg gifted her nearly half his shareholding in 1998. This is all covered in RNS’s from that period." And as for any personal relationship - Https://www.questia.com/newspaper/1G1-154016882/ballerina-and-a-battle-that-put-pounds-sterling-43m

May be a conflict of interest, but I would hope that the company could come to some arrangement to buy the shares off the bankruptcy trustee at the market price using their current cash balance thus avoiding any overhang. I also wondered if the company would just let it go quietly and not pursue MM for costs and damages, but if alanadale is going to post the same unsubstantiated narrative then the company is probably better off going for the maximum they can. £250k is 1.5p per share they could pay out as extra dividends.

Chrisatom. Here's a précis of MM's reply to owenski 1. If you want to know the position regarding a 4.5m shareholder (MM) you'll have to ask her. She can't reply to incorrect statements as she's locked out. She's not responsible for the use of her name in any place it has appeared, including RNSs. 2. She's not monitoring the thread, so is not replying each time there's a posting in which she features and there's an error 3. The only issued proceedings involving MM and TRD (with Fulton) are those from 2005. There have been no fresh issued proceedings since (2005-19). There's no communication with TRD officers, despite a start being made in Sept 16. 4. BAILII is not reliable. The BAILII cross-referencing in the recent RNS is not valid as there are no related proceedings. TRD has not sued MM. 5. There is no “personal relationship breakdown”. MM cannot explain where this rumour came from. 6. Explains how and when MM and JR got/bought their shares. 7. Continues (6) dealing with 2002. 8. Relationship JR+MM re proxy voting etc. (part of dealing with “relationship”). Records that poll proxy voting has not been published correctly since August 2016 (or at all for 2016). 9. There is a TRD stalemate in that RNSs with the poll voting have still not been issued on the RNS. They have to be by law and commitment to poll voting. 10. Commitment to voting by poll is not new: MM was party to making it in October 2005, with JR and Fulton. TRD cannot escape doing this. 11. BDO as auditor is responsible for adverse reporting if the above is not done. Housekeeping includes ratifying members' dividend payments once the accounts are corrected for a correct register and members’ addresses etc etc.

Any chance you could sum that up in 200 words or less Alan? Some of us don't have time to read an essay every time you/she posts. Cheers

Owenski, the ancient history is online (RNS’s and court cases which you can google) but it is detailed. I have read a lot of it online in the last few weeks since buying my stake and can see the basic run of events leading to the current acrimony. Whether any of it is ultimately informed by ancient former relationships is not for me to say as I don’t know. I could lay it all out here in sequence but I don’t see any point as everyone can do the research and form their own opinions. It’s a fascinating study in human behaviour in many ways. My own view is that it is hard to see how there will be pleasant relations so far as the shareholder involved is concerned given the information published in the recent court case - htTp://www.bailii.org/ew/cases/EWHC/QB/2019/423.html - but I cannot know for sure. People can change their minds if the circumstances dictate. Regardless of a dissenting shareholder, I have no doubt in my own mind the company itself is undervalued on its fundamentals so I will stay put and wait for the value to emerge. I cannot see the stasis lasting forever and ultimately everyone has their price, even dissenting shareholders.

"We trust she will lend her full support to the current successful efforts to take the Company forward. The Company remains as always open to a constructive dialogue with Ms Makar in order to describe and explain current developments and progress."

Sailing John, Post 1271, yes, you do wonder why someone apparently well off would not back up the company with some hard-earned wedge :)

That's true EC. Hence, I guess, John Rigg's plaintive request in the 1/3/19 RNS following the court case outcome. "Mira Makar is the registered holder of 3,951,452 shares in the Company (24.74%) which makes her the second largest shareholder by a substantial margin. We trust she will lend her full support to the current successful efforts to take the Company forward. The Company remains as always open to a constructive dialogue with Ms Makar in order to describe and explain current developments and progress." Question is how legally or morally weakened is she following the case? Could bloody-minded, irrational obstinacy against anything the company puts to a vote be regarded as a continuation of a campaign against the company (which was one of the plaintiffs in the case)? It is all a bit messy, agreed.

bones, Any acquirer needs to get above 50% to take control but above 90% to force minority shareholders to sell. MM has more than enough shares to hold out as a minority shareholder should she so choose. That would certainly put me off!

EC, the Mira Makar holding was indeed on my mind in the above posts, although her holding is fractionally less than 25% nowadays after the bankruptcy affair removed about 5% from her grasp (originally she held nearly 30% along with JR). It nonetheless does require all the other shareholders to be in favour!

Bones - looks like you have been busy with research - thanks for sharing - I'm not as active in that dept recently given I'm mostly cash and more importantly trying to sit on my hands!. Did you notice this Non Exec appointment from 2017. At that time I thought he would be active in the market acquiring stock given his close association with the Company from the late 90s (Founder and FD). Sadly he hasn't, nor has he taken any at the current discounted price. Having said that I suspect he has very deep pockets and wouldn't be interested in small on market purchases. Perhaps if Mira's holding came to the market he might be interested. hTTps://www.investegate.co.uk/triad-group-plc/rns/board-appointment/201707031538529699J/

Interesting discussion here. One thought I have, given the size of the two main shareholdings, either one is in position to potentially block a takeover. Thus, even if John Riggs wants to sell up and 50%+ of shareholders vote in favour, Mira Makar holds sufficient shares to hold out as a minority shareholder. That may well be a poison pill sufficient to deter any potential acquirer.

Net, I would go along with that. A catalyst should arrive at some point to fire the gun. 1. Exit strategy for J Rigg/company? (It already looks half-private given all the institutions cleared out years ago); 2. Big dividend increase or special dividend? 3. Acquisition (to gain some additional expertise or synergies); 4. Be acquired (to give another company additional expertise or synergies). 5. Any other?

Bones: They are not doing badly, rather ONE year they did exceptionally well and now Triad is again making normal amounts of money to add to the cash pile each year. Its possible if they make a shrewd investment or increase the dividend or win a new big contract things will seriously hot up. Otherwise its going to be (IMHO) a slow but steady rise.

What is the consensus thinking on TRD's dividend policy now? I note that, up to and including y/e 31 March 16, the company had not been paying a dividend (for several years anyway). There was also no interim dividend for y/e 31 March 17 but a final dividend was declared of 0.5p per share (a fairly nominal one at the time, yield-wise and cash-wise). However, for y/e 31 March 18, an interim dividend was paid of 0.5p and that was followed by a final dividend declaration of 1p per share. Then, in the recent interims for y/e 31 March 19, an interim dividend of 1p per share was also paid. I see a pattern forming here given: 1. there is potentially surplus cash on the balance sheet needing a home; 2. growth in business turnover has stalled and is being replaced by an emphasis on quality over quantity thereby reducing turnover but increasing profit margin. Can we conclude that the directors have accepted that, due to the intense competition in their field that they have themselves noted in recent reports, they should ensure quality of earnings and effectively turn this company into an income share for its shareholders? If so, might the sequence of dividends continue with a yet higher final dividend of 1.5p or 2p per share? Even a 2p dividend would only take less than 10% of the existing cash balance to pay. If a 2p dividend is paid, that makes 3p for the year and create a 7% yield. That should be attractive to income seekers and encourage them to buy the shares. This does presume that the bottom has not totally fallen out of their markets!
