Knowing those two, the mere thought of extracting value for "others" would have been a deterrent !

Mr Marshall and the Swede have had discussions about SWL. It has been a question of price. I did suggest to the Swede about having an activist punt at LFI/WSE in order to extract SWL for him and value for others. The idea did not get very far.

Wonder if Mr Marshall might get closer to his Scandanavian friend ? I'm not a fan of either guy as individuals, but it could be a case of 1+1=3 for the WSE share price. If anyone hears word of that, I might be tempted to buy.

Creston has gone up markedly ever since they sold. Goes to prove their lack of timing. Indeed, sometimes I definitely get the feeling that their "strategic" shareholding holds back the share price of their investee companies.

I have 72p as Northbridge has tanked. No joy with the big shareholders; I suspect they are colleagues of the BoD. No harm in small shareholders making constructive suggestions. If the CEO (Chairman cannot use the internet) got 10 emails from shareholders saying we would like a buyback or a special divi; he may start putting plans in place. Otherwise I will go back to my knitting for another decade.

recent messages wow...a blur of posts from people recently !!....amazing... Ive been banging on about a winding up or other action for years....now suddenly there is some interest in doing it !! (Marshalls wont wind it up...and issue assets pro rata.....since then they lose income personally....and options...and expenses....and help to self implode the Marshalls London office.....clearly not in Marshalls long term (generation to generation !) interests !...but if big holders vote for it...then it happens... If anyone wants to write to big holders...or phone them.....their contact info is available via old RNSs and/or share register..... (I wrote to bigger holders pushing for action/change 6-12 months ago......no replies or action)

...looking at older messages.... I would be in favour of a handing out of assets to shareholders.....shares pro rata... but imho the Marshalls wont do it....unless enough shareholders join up and force it through...which based on history to date...seems unlikely....but never know... (the costs run the London office....which is useful for Marshalls and pals to run other businesses..and family investments etc....and has been paying dir. fees of Marshall junior....and one assumes expenses etc ....and Marshall senior is also director of City group...) the co. is owned by top 5/10 holders.....they must surely be unhappy with performance over last 20/30 yrs..and last year..and surely keen to get their cash back and put it to work ..harder... or are they old and grey ....and asleep

I have asked Mr Marshall numerous times about LFI/WSE merger and "he" disagrees that it is in shareholders best interests i.e him. When pressed what was the future of LFI if FIN was "sold", he said he would have to look at all the options at the appropriate time. I am trying to give him food for thought.

Since the 1980's, a merger with LFI would be the most positive route in that the resultant cost-savings of running one company only plus a return of liquidity to WSE shares would be of benefit to all. Where is the downside for anyone ? But the Marshalls have been made well aware by Smithie, your brilliant forensic analyst.

My suggestion would not affect the NTAV; mcap yes. We draw a line in the sand, say 30th Sept. Tender shares @ 10% discount to NTAV; Hartim's value is an issue. It is a big change of strategy; a liquidation policy. Otherwise an Lfin merger, but not on your terms.

What would be the resultant nav on the remaining shares if that interesting idea was implemented ?

Something has to give sooner or maybe a lot later. I suggest we push for a share buyback. Say 4m shares at 60p. Shareholders with up to 5000 shares can tender 100%. Other shareholders max 20%.

Nothing wrong with a short term profit. Only potential problem is selling that sort volume without moving the price. Timing has not been their greatest strength.

Not really inspired by Bilby, but on the plus side it does seem to have been a fairly profitable purchase already. Current Bilby bid price is £1.05, so 25 pence up per share from the 80 pence per share purchase price. Also a dividend of 2.32 pence per share payable on 28th august. 1875000 bilby shares @ 27.32 pence = over half a million profit.

Yes, it does look an interesting group. Just don't like the sector!

Catching up on my reading. ST @ InvC said Bilby was a hold at 97p. Always good to have another opinion.

Creston was a far better bet. Wrong switch in my view.

Slept on it. I do not like this new investment; it appears desperate. Wrong sector, wrong timing, no understanding. It may turn out to be a star. Due to luck not process. Thumbs down from me.

I've worked with some real dog-end companies in this sector. If the business is not well controlled, you can end-up losing your shirt!

It is not clear to me that they have any experience of this sector. It seems to be a punt. Not sure about this investment but time will tell.
