Yes, looking at the facts and the company response it looks very much as you say. The point they make about not being rushed into acquisitions is a good one, rushed acquisitions are nearly always bad acquisitions. The board response to this episode has impressed me. I exited when all this kicked off, I think I was hasty, starting to buy back in now.

Having worked for the company and knowing how Ellis operates, this whole escapade is nothing short of him having to have the last say. Jon Fenton was a decent bloke and had done well, Thomas Lindup was just a way of Ellis having someone to feed information back to him. I think the board recognised that he wasn't actually earning his £270k a year salary as he had no useful skills to bring to the table. (solicitor but not a structural engineer)

Ellis and his son in law Lindup abandoned the company shortly after flotation without giving any prior indication of this either to new investors or professional advisors not to mention the company's brokers. This reckless move caused considerable disruption within the company not least to its share price. For these two individuals to now seek to reinstate themselves on the company's board is nothing short of outrageous and should be resisted at all costs.The company is clearly prospering without their involvement and shareholders should vote accordingly at the forthcoming meeting.

Some reasonable sized buys recently 100k and 250k. Interest is rising and will further in my opinion.

VANL investing for future growth: 'The Group has also continued to invest, acquiring nine new rigs which will enhance its service offering.' Looks like the Chancellor is going to go big on spending for housing/infrastructure.

This from Paul Scott on Stockopedia today: 'I don't normally invest in contracting companies these days, as so often something goes wrong. Having said that, this share is starting to look very cheap. With a reasonable trading update today, it could be worth a closer look. I'm starting to get tempted!'

I'm pleased the rebuttal from the Board came. Once this is out the way and hopefully the right way, then perhaps we may get back to performing again.

All is well and share price finally going places now 81.50p +2.50p The one division that was not performing is already doing better on margins ....... Performance in the Specialist Piling division has been more mixed, with market and operating conditions in the Group's rail business remaining challenging in the first quarter, as indicated in the trading update on 12 September 2017. Whilst rail turnover growth has been reasonable, the commercial parameters in two specific electrification contracts have resulted in a dilution to gross margin, with a result that divisional profit will be below that in the comparative period. Pleasingly, margin performance has improved consistently during the second quarter and expectations for the second half are for a return to satisfactory levels.

This is a good set of results for THE GROUP! It is traditionally weighted to H2 and with a good forward order book the future looks good. The resignation of the CEO for personal reasons is a challenge that all companies have to face and deal with from time to time and should be viewed as an opportunity look to the future not the past. Nobody in any business is irreplaceable.

VANL's announcements are like the proverbial country buses. It looks as though the coming meeting and vote will be a real humdinger! "The Board believes the Ellis Resolutions reflect the failure by Mr Ellis to accept that Van Elle is no longer his private family business." Since I hadn't even heard of the company before a week or so ago, and don't hold, I can't say much more than that I think it's basically cheap.

The CEO is staying for a transition so not rudderless and he's not going elsewhere. Best wishes to his famiy and probably thebets outcome for all.

The BULL case "Overall trading in the first half of the financial year has been positive and the Board expects to report turnover of approximately £53m (H1 2016: £43.1m) with underlying profit before taxation increasing by approximately 15% (H1 2016: £4.7m)."

hoover - careful, now! If CLLN goes under, its subcontractors will be worried about getting paid. VANL is a natural subcontractor, and could be in that position. Somebody will know, I suppose. As for market value, far more important is enterprise value: that debt has to be part of the mix. (10x equity, I think.) EDIT: consensus seems to be that a debt-for-equity swap will let CLLN survive. So fears would be unfounded.

Sort of gets things in perspective when Van Elle has a market value almost as much as Carillion. The market likes stability and not volatility.

not sure why IC think it is so questionable. he's the founder and a substantial shareholder. if he thinks it can be performing better and he is trying to force change to achieve that, then good luck to him.! I hope he succeeds, and performance does improve. What's the alternative: apathy and passivity ?

Could it be major shareholders have asked Mr Ellis to return prior to the offload of Mr Fenton & co

Yet another questionable turn of events soon after arrival on AIM. Our recent Blog alluded to the shameful goings-on at Accrol Group and the latest news from Van Elle isn’t doing much to encourage either!
