The Online Ticket Exchange and Ticketmate advertised tickets for pop and rock concerts, festivals and sporting events. TOTE used the trading styles of The Onlineticketshop ( and TheOnlineTicketExchange (

The Insolvency Service says that Ticketmate was heavily inter-linked to the other company.

In winding up the companies the court commented that the companies were effectively run by Terry Shepherd, a disqualified director, and were a repetitious operation of his previous companies which had failed with a combined deficiency to their creditors of 7,395,547.

The court noted that the firms had failed to supply many of the tickets it sold and had made "gross misrepresentations" as to their ability to supply tickets and their trading history.

Terence Shepherd was also linked to the Xclusive ticket companies formerly based in Blackfriars Road which were the subject of a Serious Fraud Office investigation.
