Hawthorn Glen v Aconex rematch: round one to Hawthorn Glen

According to Australian specialist news site StartUpSmart, a potentially acrimonious public showdown between SaaS construction collaboration provider Aconex and disgruntled shareholder Hawthorn Glen has been averted by a last minute settlement between the two sides. As noted in June (post), Hawthorn Glen had demanded access to Aconex documents relating to February’s EGM when a move to …

“Aconex Knickers in a Knot”

Following up my previous post (Aconex director under scrutiny), the latest (25 February) FirmSpy post, AAR Victoria’s Secret: Aconex Knickers in a Knot, paints an uncomfortable picture of Aconex‘s management of its relationship with its main legal advisor, Allens Arthur Robinson (AAR).

Aconex director under scrutiny

It appears that defeat of a minority shareholder’s resolution to remove the Aconex chairman Martin Hosking at an EGM last month (post 1, post 2) hasn’t ended the discontent within the highest echelons of the Melbourne-based construction collaboration technology business. Questions have now been asked about the role of another member of the board, with …

Aconex reports…

Australia-based construction collaboration Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) vendor Aconex has published its financial results for the year ending 30 June 2008. As with most annual reports and accounts, there is a lot of dry legal/accounting talk to wade through (thankfully, I am no accountant!), but for me the key points are: Aconex revenues and order book are …

Aconex twist = non-event

Further to my recent post about reopened legal proceedings involving Australian-based collaboration technology vendor Aconex and its two joint MDs, it seems that last week’s hearing was a bit of a non-event. After the hearing on 19 March, the Notice of Motion filed by Aconex shareholder Hawthorn Glen on 27 February 2008 was dismissed, but any decision on costs relating to …
