The Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) on Wednesday published a list of gripes from institutional investors who want to oust Grand Parade Investments’ incumbent board.
The most critical issue pertains to the collapse in Grand Parade’s share-price after it shifted its focus from gambling to fast food.
