Hi Ed. So you agree with me eh? Thanks for that. I can fully appreciate Manro's view though and how the frustrations of our prolonged situation affect shareholders in different ways.
As for our little pal on t' boat, that's just the thing. He can strike out one minute, ranting at shareholders, distorting what we post to adapt it into the negative, then the next minute, the waters are calm and his tune changes to one of friendliness, of an altogether accommodating soul. Of course, he mentioned buying shares just so that he'd have some clout with existing holders. I wonder, why would he want or need clout? If he isn't just turning up for the mental sport, to wind us up for his own amusement, then just who does he actually represent?
Anyway, not worth pondering too deeply, because I'm sure he'd love that we were doing so, but as was mentioned the other day on here, by someone whose good name I'll protect, lol, this isn't a form of simple deramping from our visitor, it's something quite different. The doggedness to derail, without being invested. The allegedly helpful posts that really contain quite sinister and purposefully negative undertones. In terms of Beowulf and our Concession, this person is firmly against everything we stand for, because mining in Jokkmokk is not what he ever wants, regardless of how he may say that he isn't overly bothered either way. If he wasn't, then surely he wouldn't be posting here. Unless of course, there are deeper psychological elements at play. I wonder if he pops up on other sites? Lol.
It does makes you wonder why all the effort on his part though. He has a house in the area, but why try and erode the confidence of shareholders? Perhaps he believes it will change the outcome of a Government decision, if it appears that we have the jitters. Dunno.
The important thing is for us to remain wary, guarded, and focus both on what Kurt is doing and on our investment. Remind ourselves of the known facts, go over the RNS news and search for info. Keep ourselves busy. Chanel out the malevolent.
In my opinion that is Ed. Then again, I am into murders and executions mainly. I mean, mergers and acquisitions.
Dear friend, I am not about criticism of Kurt's actions. In contrary I did mention his excellent job since becoming CEO. I am about not a seat qietly and just wait for the result. We need to be much more active and make prior to AGM some mutually agreed between shareholders suggestions and recommendations which could help Kurt in his efforts. In other words if we are going to receive refusal we should be honest with ourself in terms of we did everything we could to get a positive result.
I have to agree with EricD that we should leave Kurt alone to do the pushing. A full frontal attack by us shareholders would do more harm than good and simply antagonise the Swedish Government to the detriment of our approval chances. I've spoken to Kurt on a few occasions and he is a very intelligent and focused person. He spent a lot of time when he took over the stewardship of our company undoing the damage done by our former MD. If it is possible to get the approval Kurt will get it. I strongly suggest that we leave him to do his job. If anyone has any criticism to make regarding Kurt's actions the right time and place is the AGM. I shall be there and look forward to meeting Kurt in person.
Thanks for respond and I get your point too. However I disagree with you and absolutely convinced that we have been so patient in our waiting for decision that some of us can sooner became (if not already) the winners of Guinness Book of Records prise. We as investors are huge force indeed and have to use it instead of just hoping that Kurt is going to bring the result for us. I agree that Kurt is doing an excellent job. But it doesn't mean that we can just seat quietly and wait a positive result. We can and even obliged to play our role without delay by thinking and offering to Kurt thoughtful advices or undertake some immediate actions which could help him to get the result we are needed.
I take your points on board, and I'm fully aware that we shareholders do own the Company. I would suggest, however, that we are not privy to all the facts, that is, the finer details of the negotiations and fluctuations happening in Sweden. I would say therefore, that questions can and should be asked at the AGM to furnish us with more information. We could then better decide, based on Kurt's responses, if we shareholders feel the need for an EGM. Official routes are always best as a first course of action, in my view, otherwise we become yet another faction of the disgruntled in the already complicated equation. What we don't need, and again this is my view only, is for any action that a handful of us may take independently, to scupper the work already done by Kurt, potentially jeopardising his relationships with us and the Swedes, both current and future. He has enough on his plate.
At what is a sensitive stage for us with our application, with discussions seemingly ongoing, can you also imagine the Government granting a Concession to our Company, if it sees that its shareholders are kicking up a storm?
We need to be patient in my opinion, keep our support up, to ensure that Beowulf continues to be viewed and rightly so, as being a Company based on firm foundations, reliable, with a solid shareholder base. Maybe we can take a leaf out of the book of our Swedish investors, who have increased their holdings considerably over the last two years. They are confident, so we should perhaps be thinking about that, while we wait. Doesn't it bode well?
We can't lean on a Government, but I believe Kurt is doing all he can to keep our application on the boil.
