GOS systems was originally intending to float in 2013 with a pre-new money valuation of about £22M.:
"THE TIMES Tapping into the market for security July 15 2013 Nic Fildes A company that develops technology designed to tap the phones of terrorists and protect the identity of spies and informants is set to float in London. GOS Systems plans to raise £8 million via a float on AIM that is expected to value the homeland security specialist at about £30 million. Panmure Gordon is acting as broker, with the shares set to start trading in August. The company runs its own telecoms network used by security agencies and the police to protect the identities of field operatives and informants. It also gathers data by tapping phones and monitoring the internet usage of suspects. ... The company has swept up smaller players with great technology but low ambitions and will add Deltenna, a mobile technology specialist, using the funds it raises from the float in a £5 million deal. The company, which is based in London but will operate in Chippenham, Wiltshire, is the brainchild of Peter McKee, its 70-year-old chairman, who previously was head of the AIM-listed TRL Electronics. He said there was a “major gap” in the market for a mid-sized specialist: “The bang for the buck we get here from engineers is incredible compared with the US. The Americans do high-spending stuff, but they’re not that clever.” GOS is still early in its development, with revenue of £3.5 million and operating profit of £300,000." http://waterbridgecapital.com/gos-systems-intention-to-float-on-aim-gets-international-coverage/
If GOS Systems relists with such a valuation, that would equate to a fully-diluted share price of about 2.5p per share, compared to TGL's 0.525p share price at delisting.
Sometimes it's a good thing to be in a share that delists.
Because businesses that delist can relist later at a much higher share price.
A good example is Direct Network Publishing, which delisted from OFEX in the late 1990s, spent a short period unlisted, and then relisted in a different form at about ten times its share price at delisting. I.e. the holdings of shareholders at the time of the delisting became worth ten times as much at the relisting.

... Direct Network Publishing. This internet publishing house was listed on the Ofex exchange, but was delisted after buying a telecommuncations company. Plans for a float on a much more substantial market stage, Nasdaq, say, seem to be afoot, and the eventual price tag is likely to shock traditionally minded investors. ..."
Although not qualified in the least I do however have experience of the his sort of thing having been locked in a delisted company now for almost 3 yrs now. TGL is now my 2nd delisted company I own shares in.
Shares held in a normal account will be transferred automatically if and when the company relist. Be it TGL or GOS. Currently they have no value, although you still own a percentage of TGL and will remain so. There is no time limit that I'm aware of and I like I eluded to above, my other company is 3 yrs and still no relist in sight but again I still own a percentage of the company. If and when they relist, there value will be reassessed and that figure will be incorporated into the new share price. Your 4th question is answered in my opening statement.
I personally can not see why HH100 is still adamant about TGL being a Strong Buy, when the rest of us see it as it is and that's shares that worthless with nothing from TGL in reassurance or some sort of timetable going forward. I think it's a disgrace that we've had nothing since the last RNS in October. All they had to do was release the figures within 6 months. We've been stabbed in the back and what becomes of the nice bloke at the end of the phone when countless of times it's all everything is rosey and nothing to worry about. Mugs is all I can think of at the moment and that's not them that's us.......
Gutted this was not sorted. I could of lumped all this TGL cash into Chonca after that crashed back to levels worth investing at after a failed merge or whatever it was. It's already trebled from the price it fell back to and it's all because of TGL and oh Mr Khan who's the golden child to some posters on here. But that's my problem I know, I just feel better getting that out.....
If any of the TGL board happen to read this BB I'd just say, make it sooner rather than later if anything is going to happen regardless of winding the company up or giving us shares in Cambridge because of the huge F up in TGL.
The brief 7a.m. TGL RNS yesterday was followed up by a longer one, copied below. Please note the following error: " ... GOS Systems, that had been acquired from administration in November 2015 ... " That should read November 2014.
Despite the delisting things are looking positive.
The major concern is whether the company can avoid the share being removed from ISAs, by relisting somewhere in sufficient time.

Following the cancellation from trading on AIM, Touchstone Gold Limited's ordinary shares will be transferrable by way of stock transfer form but there will be no price setting or dealing facility made available by the Company to shareholders.
