Ortus VCT is a Venture Capital Trust which started life back in 1995 as Guinness Flight VCT and
subsequently merged with Gateway VCT. The company got into severe financial difficulties due to
poor investment selection and investment management was taken over by Maven Capital Partners a
couple of years ago. Maven have been gradually selling off the legacy investments and refocusing
the portfolio on profitable small companies as with their other VCTs. This is still a “work in progress”
There were 6 shareholders who attended the ...
On the 9th July I travelled to Chester for the Annual General Meeting of GB Group. Their offices are in a modern business park in the suburbs of Chester. There were only two ordinary shareholders present (including me) and I gather that was not untypical.
GB Group are in the identity management business. Overall revenue last year was £32m of which £13m came from “data authentication” (basically personal identity verification services) and £19m from “data solutions” which provides identity capture and analysis. ...
On the 6th July I drove through the Somerset countryside to reach the AGM of Software Radio Technology (SRT) – got lost on the way taking a short cut to avoid Bath, but that’s a different story. This company produces AIS marine electronics and has been covered in past ShareSoc newsletters (not always particularly positively after the profit warning before the end of the financial year when instead of meeting the sales forecast of “between £10m and £16m” it turned out ...
I wouldn’t normally report on unlisted companies, but Business Control Solutions was an AIM company (EPIC code BCT) that delisted in 2009. I recently attended their AGM in the City of London and they have another General Meeting coming up in a couple of weeks time to approve a further share consolidation (they had one in 2010 also).
The history of my investment in this company is that it was acquired by Brewin Dolphin as part of an EIS portfolio they managed ...

This was an excellent AGM with the board of directors of Anglo Asian (LSE:AAZ) being happy to discuss a wide range of issues raised by shareholders. The mood was very upbeat. I attended the meeting with the three shareholders who joined a trip I organised in May 2011 ...
Amati VCT 2 Plc is a Venture Capital Trust that was formed in March 2011 from the merger with Invesco Perpetual AIM VCT Plc. It had previously been the result of a merger of the Singer & Friedlander AIM VCTs, subsequently renamed Victory VCT and then Amati after the latter took over the fund management. There was also a share consolidation which rebased the net asset value to nearer 100p and which concealed the poor past performance for the uninitiated, and ...

This was held at 11:00 at the company's new HQ in an out-of-the way part of Bradford a couple of miles from the city centre. I imagine they got all sorts of grants to develop this brownfield site. The result (owned outright, as is their way) is an impressive part of their estate.
Hoping for a coffee and a chat with someone I arrived early. No such luck, I was ushered to a seat and had to wait out the time. I ...
