You can get ring rusty maybe Charles needs to step outside the box for a while then step back after he has viewed Morgan from a different angle .

Don't want to be a doom mongering git, but reading this release and bearing in mind how business works...reads to me that there is a new direction for the business looming and Charles doesn't like it....maybe a take over!

Perhaps the rest of the board just don't like the "go upmarket" trend Charles wS advocating and they have agreed to stay roughly where they are. I would think that therefore Charles may want out! Perhaps we need to wait and see rather tha engaging in pure speculation.

Cheers!

Or perhaps he is tired of the daily grind? Or perhaps he is leaving to become a film star? Or perhaps he is turning his back on petrol and becoming an eco warrior? Or perhaps he is going to sell his 30% and set up a bike company? So many assumptions and no facts. wink

If the family had decided to sell the company, would it not make sense for them to do it unified and keep everything in equilibrium until the deal was done. Furthermore, I assume if Charles was the foundation of all this, he would be kept on with an earn-out to ensure a suitable transition.

There is too much doom mongering and I cannot see any reason to get out The End is Nigh placards yet doh

The press release reads "share more news.." this is PR speak for watch this space ....it does not take much working out! coffee

Those who have lived and worked in the Global Market can easily spot the signs of what is about to happen ....I may be wrong...but I bet £5 ... lot for me to bet ...that I am not wrong!! doh

If you take a long view/strategic view this could be the right way forward- a great way forward.

As posted I believe the Morgan Brand is a potential mega brand - worldwide ..but one which needs a £££££huge investment. Enter stage right ...VAG Group ...BMW...AMG???? laugh2

Lets find out!

But altho different the future is bright IMHO innocent

Give it a couple of weeks and the facts will emerge I'm sure - I don't think the family will be doing anything to harm the heritage of Morgan IMHO.
They all have vested interests after all in the worst case possible scenario.
