I have no idea when the bounce to a sensible value will occur, suffice to say that it is IMHO highly likely in the near future. VirtualStock was looking at a float on AIM this year and the fact that they have saved Office Depot 'millions of pounds' and now have Tesco and Morrisons on board vindicates that AND a fairly weighty valuation. One RNS will transform the asset value of this unquoted stock. The directors remuneration is almost totally dependent on their share options priced at 0.2p and 0.35p kicking in. That means, to get any money the price must rise 'substantially' above 0.2p and then 0.35p. I am no rocket scientist, but I strongly suspect that they have realistic valuations in mind for the total value of LEG investee companies. I expect that to be in pence, not fractions of pence. DYOR and check out the companies in which we hold shares. Two unquoteds are in first-mover disruptive technologies, the other sits on huge untapped coal reserves. One of the quoted shares (AMED) is in mega million discussions in rig building in Singapore and China - plus it received 50% of its investment back in an interim dividend from MGR commodities trader (soaring). Do I think that Legendary could multibag many times from here? IMHO - strongly Yes, the price does not reflect any real value gained in the past 12 months, that's why I'm holding 10m shares and awaiting news. My patience will be rewarded 'Virtually' overnight.

whats your views on a bounce via weekend this has clearly been shorted today
the big question going forward what i am thinking will Bruce Rowan who holds 24% take his option on 200m+ at 0.16 which is due to expire on 7 March. exciting year ahead for leg 2014 could be the re-rate we have all been waiting for, good investments here, the last rns not much on news but good to know the bio fuel investment is still going strong.
I disagree strongly. Check my previous posts. The valuation of quoted shares at the half year was at a cyclical low. Many have improved markedly eg AMED. VirtualStock, Bosques and Mannas are all unquoted and have the great potential to individually exceed the current share price AND all are in the books AT COST! Also disagree with your vision of management as they are proactive and excellent being involved in all investee companies - hands-on. They are paid in out-of-the-money options so no price rise no pay! Go to the LEG website, check the companies and also check the 3 research documents from Beaufort. Quoted AMED also has huge potential - we have 19m shares and have probably increased our holding recently in current offering as we have one director very actively involved. I think you are totally missing the huge added value component in Legendary otherwise why would the directors elect to be remunerated in options that only kick in at 0.2p and 0.35p?? They are no fools and know the value of the investee stocks - particularly the unquoteds. VS should float on AIM this year - the IPO should show our investment to be around our current MCap IMHO. Just one RNS is all it will take, hence my comment that this is a steal at this price.
Just looked at the HY Results and the figures don’t make for good reading in my opinion. Investments have swung from a £35k gain to a £77k loss (down £112k); and, whilst investment value has increased to £432k (up £54k), from looking at cash you can see that has come at the cost of £184k. i.e. they’ve turned £184k into £54k.
And this poor performance is currently valued by the market at 2,140,000?!
Clearly there’s a lot of speculation holding this up – the belief that the VirtualStock investment etc will all turn good in the end – but 1) that is speculation, and 2) already some of the upside has been priced into the current valuation.
I think this a high risk share and not necessarily high reward so I’ll be staying clear and, unless I am missing something, I cannot believe I once considered buying into LEG a few months ago.
Excellent RNS! There we were watching for VirtualStock and Amedeo and a super RNS from Bosques appears. We really are at the cutting edge of Jatropha propagation, technology and application. We should not underestimate the value of our investment here. Valuation of similar, but less developed, plantation programmes are approaching those of high-tech stocks in the USA. Expect big jumps in interest here and significant value accretion in our investment. Nice.
Legendary Investments Plc ("Legendary" or the "Company")
Investee Company Update - Bosques Energeticos EBE S.A. de C.V. ("Bosques") Joins Steering Committee of Project "Jetropha"
Legendary announces that its investee company, Bosques has been invited to and has joined the Steering Committee of Project Jetropha on the basis of the strength of the Bosques' cutting edge development work and its strains of bio-diesel crops.
Project Jetropha, established by Alternative Fuels America, Inc. ("AFAI"), is an industry organisation devoted to advocacy, support and collaboration by and for small and mid-sized Jatropha producers and Jatropha based biodiesel producers seeking to contribute to the growing movement to blend traditional aircraft petroleum with Jatropha biodiesel for cleaner aviation fuel.
There is a strong demand for cleaner aviation fuel and Jatropha based fuel has been demonstrated to be easily refined into aviation grade fuel and perform well in aircraft engines. These results have led to greater interest on the part of the major airlines and large fuel companies. Biofuel is an everyday part of operation for several major airlines.
Much of the in-trenches research and innovation that has led to Jatropha based fuels being used in aviation has been led and conducted by smaller Jatropha focused companies.
Craig Frank, Chief Executive Officer of AFAI, said "We are delighted that Bosques has joined Project Jetropha as a steering committee member. It's in the field research based approach is second to none and is producing advanced Jatropha varieties with low time to yield and high yield characteristics. The varieties are also edible, further enhancing their economics. We look forward to working with Bosques on Project Jetropha".
Zafar Karim, Executive Chairman of Legendary, said "We are pleased that the advances made by Bosques have been recognised and it has been invited to join Project Jetropha as a steering committee member."
