Ok im not good with words but maybe the question could be more like... Many investors are unhappy with our complicated dual listing and would support a move away from France, especially as we do little business there. Also a move to the main LSE market would significantly increase institutional interest, as would a dual list on NASDAQ. Can you tell us if you have any such plans?
Ill try again. Maybe I posted that under the wrong subject heading Porky and you missed it.
"All good questions porky but just to be clear.. Are you asking for a move off the bourse and AIM markets and wholly onto NASDAQ or a delist from Bourse and dual listing here and in US? I think its important to ask for a move up to main list LSE as soon as possible (hopefully next year as we grow towards midcap status) with all the new UK and international institutional investors that would attract, as well as a dual listing on NASDAQ."
Just wondering exactly what your referring to in your question 8 because it reads to me like your asking for a complete move to NASDAQ which I wouldnt support, or have I just got it completely wrong?

Porky, I thought we'd already rid ourselves of ODDO? Last time I checked (given it was a while back) they were no longer mentioned as advisors on the website or in RNS. Also re delist from Bourse (which I strongly agree with, as well as moving HQ away from France) and move to NASDAQ... I assume you mean as a dual listing, as well as a move to the main list of LSE? If so it should be also mentioned.
"It is as though they are still negotiating a deal"
Exactly..'they are' still negotiating and NvS is nobodies fool. Think tactics and think maybe minds at AA will be more focused now. Just my own opinion but this is not over yet and the patient will be rewarded. Still a short window of opportunity for a deal before drilling starts.
Once drilling starts its in the lap of the gods but the data is in our favour and we could have a bidding war situation now theres no EA.
I wonder if moving the headquarters to UK would be for the best too, because it could be that the french gov see us as British and want nothing to do with us and the UK gov sees us as French or at best Anglo/French, not a purely British company. Given that we do so little business in France then why have our headquarters there?
Agree with your 17:37 post Larry. The likes of Worldquant are ruthless operators and once they latch on to a share that they can make easy money on..its like a tick..it will suck blood until its satiated and eventually drops off. When that will be we dont know but maybe the best way to discourage them along with short term/news traders is to make the move off the Bourse (sorry) and AIM and move to a main London list, maybe later with a dual Nasdaq listing. Dont think its going to happen this year because theyre so busy growing the company but I could be wrong if the Bourse listing proves to be of little use and too much of a nuisance. The only thing km sure of is that it will come in good time and it will have the effect of a steady upwards rerating as more funds buy in.

Just looking at the picture of them both together makes you realise what a frightening state were in. Not fit to hold any public office..let alone run this once great Union. I think Handcôck is too complicit in the corruption to dare open his mouth. Into hiding for him for a while into a life of luxury with his ill gotten riches until no doubt he scurries back into another government role at some point in the future. I do wonder if even Johnson was embarrassed at what he was up to..not with his mistress..dont care about that but look at how all the great British companies including ours were overlooked and misled while they bought and are still buying sub standard kit from the Chinese.
