Re: COC plans continue and the SP drops.... small shareholders where passengers as COC used their voting rights do perform an act of harm on the business.These isn't many posters [across the boards] that understand the assets and BLVN chequored history better than I.building a very substantial holding. -------Winnet - once again you provide no evidence to support your claims against COC. Any danger of reading what you type before pressing 'submit'? BTW - you said on advfn that you didn't have a big holding, but know say it was substantial. Here you say you aquired more and more. Just how much did you lose here? Does Mrs Winnet know you've spaffed away your pension?
Re: COC plans continue and the SP drops.... "Sellers regret? Hardly, I sold at 20% premium to the current share price!"first off yes that's the "current" share price, so it means nothing for those that will hold out until this company is soldsecondly yes at a premium to todays price, but you clocked up at least a 50% loss, easily, probably a lot more, then there is the time and effort invested, the cost of money............I can see why you are so very bitter"while these jokers are in charge"there you go again with the juvenile unsubstantiated insults.................define exactly why COC are "clowns" and "jokers" (do you run your own hedgefund??) .............I also recall you called the CEO a "comedy actor" (what on earth does this mean? only your weird little mind knows!) but again, why the insult for a man you have never met and has done no wrong (unlike KH) so far?the name calling and childish jibes only goes to show its just pure bitterness that your friend was removed (rightfully and legally) from his post, there is no altruism about it AT ALL, that is just another lie you have concocted "who can now effectively do whatever they like"more drivel with no evidenceand when KH took $95 million of our money when stating he would only use $15 million on bomono, where was your outrage then?!!!really weird that KH actually had done the things that you merely accuse of COC of, yet there was ZERO dissatisfaction from at the time KH was destroying shareholder value for over a decade...........no body should trust this poster!
Re: COC plans continue and the SP drops.. jac I see that cerebral marshmallow is struggling again to form a coherent and logical argument"COC continue to pick up shares even as the SP drops....and drops...."what is your point? if the SP is going to be worth more than the current shareprice in any given time in the future, then isn't that what any astute investor would do? I know you meant it as some sort of insult or negative, but I really think you should get some help when trying to trash talk a share and its investors, your IQ clearly isn't up to it! who mentioned taking the CO private at 35p? again what is your point? if someone mentioned taking the co private at 150p would you mention that too?..............absolute nonsense again!you and winnet both lost a large amount of money, credibility and integrity during your time holding BLVN stock, I suggest if there is any pride to be regained that is for you and winnet to sort out.........we all know it can hurt to lose money, but the measure of a man is how he deals with it...........all you and winnet do is continue to post juvenile and moronic comments on this BB out of pure spite and bitterness..............i thinks it time for you and winnet to grow up and move on
Re: COC plans continue and the SP drops.... "However, for me, its about people and trust. Did I trust KH and did I like him? Yes and yes"if this doesn't prove the level of this mans delusion or dishonesty then god help ya! "Absolutely not, i wouldn't trust them to make my tea!"winnet I challenge you to name a SINGLE thing that COC have done that is "untrustworthy" do you want me to list again (in the double digits) the things KH did or said that showed either incompetence, gross mismanagement or breach of fiduciary responsibility?I have no doubt this will receive no response as that's what cowards and liars like winnet do when someone highlights their hypocrisy and misleading's, they hide behind the ignore button and cry faux outrage, when really its just the easiest way to avoid an argument with someone that can prove the other an unadulterated liar
Re: COC plans continue and the SP drops.... Hioyo,As i'm sure you're aware, there is no secret. In truth you might be better asking others that question. However, for me, its about people and trust. Did I trust KH and did I like him? Yes and yes. Do I feel the same way about COC. Absolutely not, i wouldn't trust them to make my tea! Like the guy who runs Serica SQZ - a genuinely good guy who is incredibly astute. James Parsons of Sou, likewise. These are people I have met and like very much. So my answer is really DYOR, use your network, and get good people to advise you.
Re: COC plans continue and the SP drops.... Sellers regret? Hardly, I sold at 20% premium to the current share price!The critical problem with the current cosy arrangement is the principal and agent are one and the same entity. The relationship of accountability therefore breaks down. It all rather obvious [well... to me anyway!]Thus the removal of the BOD - us small shareholders where passengers as COC used their voting rights do perform an act of harm on the business. Now of course you will say - "that was their right as legitimate shareholders", and of course you're correct. It doesn't make it any less palatable for the rest of us.Regarding my interest. These isn't many posters [across the boards] that understand the assets and BLVN chequored history better than I. I am genuinely not wanting to blow my own trumpet, but alas, modesty never was my strong point. I spent years researching the asset, interacting with the company and building a very substantial holding. Then as time progressed and COC acquired more and more, resulting in the ousting of the BODs, I gradually sold out. It wasn't a project I wanted to be in anymore. However, the reason for the interest is simple: Etinde. I will never buy into the business while COC have the voting rights they do and while these jokers are in charge. However, nothing is for ever, is it? There is always a way back So, I retain my interest is these assets and intended to help other investors, as a act of pure altruism.
Re: COC plans continue and the SP drops.. Hit vote up key by mistake for respond. Any way just to congratulate you for selling after COC took control and got you a much better price to what the previous board had managed to drag it down to/Instead of gloating what a clever boy you are why don't you share your secret as to picking your winners that can make back your losses. Good luck all .
Re: COC plans continue and the SP drops.... COC, who can now effectively do whatever they like [even more so than before].---------- ----What are you trying to suggest? As shareholders COC have always been free to do as they please and they aren't answerable to any other shareholder. If you are trying to imply that they can do whatever they like with Blvn I would be grateful if you could back up your view with evidence and reasoning (a hopeful request I know). As someone who doesn't own shares here, why do you keep coming back? Is it because you are panicking that we might end up with a bigger share price than you received? Seller's regret?
Re: COC plans continue and the SP drops.. I would add, as a shareholder, I like to vote on things which effect my company - i'm old fashioned in this respect. Buying now simply makes you a slave to COC, who can now effectively do whatever they like [even more so than before].
COC plans continue and the SP drops.. I feel so very sorry for the few of you who have slavishly been to loyal to your little dreams.COC continue to pick up shares even as the SP drops....and drops....Someone mentions taking the company private at 35p?? I sold out at 36p the day that COC took over control of the BOD. Since then I have made back all my money I have lost (stupidly) on BLVN... its not too late for you all to save a little bit of pride of escape!!!
Re: COC increasing their stake I am not sure I see any tactical advantage in acquiring 30% on its own. Obviously acquiring 30+1% means an offer must be made, but there is nothing stopping that offer being made at 27%.The main advantage is having over 25 +1% is that technically it can block special resolutions, which require 75% of shareholders to vote.Of course in any vote it is the votes cast that is important, so 27% or 30% may in reality mean that it may have a technical simple majority of votes cast, 50+1% because of apathy or lack of information for other private or institutional shareholders share holders.Of course continuing to purchase shares may be a good investment in itself, if a higher were to be made, or if they knew something about progress within the business that we didn't.

Re: COC increasing their stake £8.40........that rings a bell.......think it was when winnet bought his last tranche In all seriousness, even though I am glad COC took over from that incompetent oaf KH, we have to accept they are a hedge fund and will be getting this company as cheap as possible......so chances of £1 + are almost non existent I dont know if COC have the monetary muscle to buy up the whole of BLVN on their own, so how are they going to do this........thats the question?
Re: COC increasing their stake How about £8.40 which was the intra day high!!
Re: COC increasing their stake I myself hope this share price eventually goes back to nearer what it was before it got trashed/Some posters mention 2 quid being the highs before glorious leader took us down to below 20 pence. There will be holders in this who paid up to nearer 4 quid and held on too late.We can only wait and see what becomes of this. Good luck to all.
Back in Picked up 45000 first thing , takeover coming IMO .
