    I’m pretty sure that SG doesn’t own the “ Manx Norton “ name , so they can’t use that version of a Norton name , of course correct me anyone if I’m wrong .

    They could call it the (SG9 Manx) or some such. And every upgrade year after that ( SG10 Manx) and so on.. Or just SG9-M , SG10-M etc..

    He Don't need any it seems, as he can afford to give away £1M of shares to his 'team' shares in what exactly. Cash them in quick, unless a take over is going to be announced this week, it is the only way those shares will have any value in the future.

    The £1m free share may be a share match option , employees invest a certain amount each month then over 3/5 years then have option to buy shares at a discounted price plus get a free one for everyone they buy , in share save schemes employees also have the option to cancel at any time or transfer the saved funds into a interest beating account of a building society & grab the minor miniscule interest .
    Other conditions such as have to have worked there 6 months would normally apply to, shares go up & down as we know !
    Tax benefits for all if handled correctly, if every UK owner invested a £1000 I reckon that would add up to around £1m , however some maybe less than enthusiastic on these pages I’m sure.
    As for the V4,s I’d say they were underpriced , could of got another £5k on RR & SS , that’s £1.75m

    There is no way anyone in their right mind would invest in a company who's liabilities will never be covered by the amount of profit returned on the number of bikes they say they can make.
    The only investors they are now attractive to would only be ones after a takeover and kicking out the old guard.
    The state of metro Bank, I would not be surprised if that security is up for sale, ohh dear!!

    Any update from the meeting tonight (another tomorrow). I presume they are selling some shares in the company to raise some money to fund the current order book. Perhaps they will update the forum with the details.

    Unless the sale of shares is for a controlling stake, then I suspect it will fall flat on its face. Not only that, why have a meeting, Kinetic's already keen association would suggest that they would buy them, a bit strange if they don't.

    Looks like they are going for a stock market listing, probably on AIM?

    Don't make sense, why AIM, why not bale out now to a big name manufacturer. Walk away rich, not with nothing.

    Which big name manufacturer would consider buying out Norton with their current product line?
    Who wants to own a boutique brand with so many owner issues?

    Piaggio did - they bought Aprilia and Moto Guzzi
    Audi did - they bought Ducati
    Kawasaki did - they bought 49.9% of Bimota
    If the EBITDA is good and could be improved upon, there would be a buyer for Norton.
