VP Plc (VP.) AGM report 2016

The AGM of Yorkshire-based VP, a family controlled specialist equipment rental business, necessitated an early start for a London-based shareholder since the 10.AM meeting was at Rudding Park, a country hotel on the outskirts of Harrogate. However, the early morning drive up a busy M1 was worth the effort, since a chance to quiz the company’s board provided welcome reassurance that VP, probably the oldest major player in the accident prone UK plant hire and equipment rental business, is also one of ...

British Land Plc, one of the largest UK commercial property companies, held its Annual General Meeting at the Montcalm Hotel in the West End of London at 11.00 am on the 19th July.

On the morning of the AGM the company issued a trading statement which was generally positive. Retail ...

Crawshaw Group (CRAW) AGM Report 2016)

Just returned from today’s Crawshaw Group AGM which was very well attended and all seating was taken. Everyone was there except the newly appointed NED. AGM Statement. Richard went through the votes and special resolutions, interestingly somebody questioned the final special resolution to ratify and confirm the 2015 dividends which turned out to be something to do with moving money from the subsidiary company into the wrong account. I asked about the impact of the out vote on our business and the general view was ...

CentralNic (CNIC) AGM Report 2016

Well it's another day and despite the market falling and England losing to Iceland last night, I remain optimistic as always. I expected the market to fall again today as a result of the damage to morale of the football result but it's actually bounced back a bit. The price of CNIC does not seem to have moved much though during the recent turmoil, perhaps because there appears to be very little trading in the stock. I suspect few private investors ...
