    I have been told by my old LL councillor that exante are going bust! Has anyone else heard this or is it just a bad rumor?

    Exante Inc went bust, but a new company bought them out a while ago. Exante is said to be very secure now. There was a thread about it a while back x

    Just to be sure I will do a check on them today to see just how secure they really are. It could be this LL person is just going on very old news but the checks I can do will tell us what is happening and how financially secure they are. Imagine if they were going bust, would not be good for us at all.

    Alright everyone, nothing to worry about, As Isis says Exante Inc Ltd went bust and Exante Ltd was born.
    Exante inc Ltd went bust on 05/02/2010
    Exante Ltd registered on 15.01.2010, Exante Inc obviously knew far in advance that they were going bust.
    The same people that ran Exante Inc Ltd have nothing whatsoever to do with Exante Ltd.
    In my experience in dealing with companies is that no company goes bust within 5 months of starting to trade, unless of course something catostrophic happens like the MD decides the company is not growing fast enough or the MD has run out of funds, but going into it with a short term goal is stupid and reckless when opening a new company, you have to provide for the worst and give yourself at least 24 months. It also depends on how much she had going in. If she has a large borrowing the bank will certainly not shut her down after just 5 months, they want a return on their investment so will try and help her if there are problems but I think we can all relax and carry on ordering without a hassle.
    I have emailed them and told them about this rumour, lets see what they come back with.

    Good Mark. Day one was easy for the most part..determination and excitement i guess. got to around 9pm and was struggling as i usually would sit down when my wee boy is in bed and make my way thru bad unhealthy food while watching tv. Instead i came on here...it helped! Yesterday again was pretty ood. It was so hot i didnt even think about food.....just drank loads...which is good! today so far so good, just turned my shake pack into lollies for later. Looking forward to gettin weighd on Monday is spurring me on.....although i have had to hide my scales at a friends house to stop me weighing beforehand lol. Thanks for asking :D xxx
