Tosca strategies is making money for their fund holders - as far as my limited knowledge of their history goes - they target "small" inefficiently run companies with good product growth potential with the intention of taking total control of the company and product they produce which Tosca consider by tight control they can improve the performance of and later sell as a job lot on the market at a profit - take the case of circle they have an arrangement which swaps shares for loan notes - don't ask me why - but thats the way they like to play things. Take the case of SLE there is no way they can take control of the product or the operating organisation since it is all owned in a percentage basis in the case of Nigeria with Eroton and others - their small percentage ownership participation is again complex through Bidco and Mauritius - nice place to hold tax free dividends I guess - I am therefore, like all of us, guessing that Tosca will sooner or later sell to a Chinese bid or others - the Chinese see Africa as a long term investment as a massive future consumer market and as a source of raw materials - I think this has already been decided at high political levels Africa is China's (with all it's over[population and poverty - witness Woodside recently selling out to CNOOP in the Gambia.
Sle will obviously get a better price for the Nigerian asset if they can get the dividends flowing but if not and they can sell way above 25p - I was always hoping on 125p - they would do a deal leaving SLE as an entity to continue with other adventures such as Ireland.
Of Timbremner.............Still bad mouthing anyone with an opinion that doesn't agree with his, if he's got one. Why do you have to do that Tim because from what I see from your 3 line shocker this morning there's not one single word of good sense in it..........I notice you end it by saying GLA genuine LTHs Is this just a gesture to win people over. Or do you quite genuinely mean it. If you do could you give us all an idea of what events might be needed to turn this wish of good luck into a meaningful status of B E or even a profit for all us LTHs.
In other words accept and move on?surely you not saying that LTHs should not be aggrieved?no accountability?just a handkerchief and some sympathy?shafting small retail investors is the name of the game here,T just picking up where Fanny left off.FRUS post informative as it was omitted several other companies that TF have taken a position in ,I could list here but couldn't be bothered anymore and arguably FCA and similar entities are not fit for purpose.GL to non believers.

for goodness sake the constant negativity comes from the company...Don't you believe the D15 post about Circle. The fact is Tosca are mopping up companies like bread in gravy. Can you not see that through their involvement with us we are now prime and ready for picking, it's what they do. What I cant see the point of is constantly looking the other way and keeping yourself in denial its going to happen. Nothing we can do though I do find it hard to accept that because it's AIM we are somehow not protected by law as we would be if on the main market. If you calmly look back at the past 6 years or so of broken promises, misleading statements and many things which in hindsight just didn't sit right. It really does look a complete farce. You would think a good firm of lawyers could pull it to bits with ease and gain compensation for the loyal shareholders........It's not much different to PPI where you were tricked into buying something you already had or would never get.
Frus My break even is 107p but whatever it is I can't see the point of constant negativity and endless repetitive speculative messages about possible disaster scenarios. There remains no certainty about the future and various outcomes are possible for PIs. QF
