City Grandee Bob Morton gets most serious "cold shoulder" sanction in history of Takeover Panel - branded a liar

Published 79 days ago

In a ruling handed out on December 21 but published today the Takeover Panel has handed out the most severe sentence in its history to City grandee and veteran financier Bob Morton and also branded him a liar for the way he tried to cover up his actions.

Origo from the Filthy Forty – Execution No. 24 pencilled in for a week on Monday as photos arrive at ShareProphets Towers

Published 209 days ago

It rather looks as though the ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty is set for its twenty-fourth execution, in the form of Origo Partners (OPP) which has now been suspended pending financial clarification for just under the six month period which triggers automatic delisting under AIM Rule 41 (if, that is, the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation bother to enforce it). The ouzo is on ice.

Galasys – EGM called… oh dear, is it chairman versus CEO? And a correction….

Published 211 days ago

We have already noted that AIM-listed Galasys (GLS) appears to be minus a company secretary, minus a registered office, minus a Nomad, minus a Broker and minus a NED or two since the board declared war upon itself last year. Now it seems that two disgruntled shareholders have decided enough is enough, but the implications as to what has been going on are dreadful.

Galasys – courting disaster or just a farce?

Published 345 days ago

We have been covering AIM-listed, but not (quite) AIM-China Galasys (GLS) through the who-is –in-charge battle since last October. There have been court proceedings in the UK, Jersey and Malaysia and here we are in April 2016 with still no resolution. Yesterday morning the company issued an update: Jersey proceedings were suspended as a kiss-and-make-up negotiation was underway, and in Malaysia a ruling went for the company and its directors (one of them former) but seems to have been appealed.

Galasys – court update on farcical boardroom bust-up

Published 432 days ago

We have previously reported (HERE) on the farce that is AIM-listed Galasys (GLS), the company where two directors were announced to have stepped down only for those directors to resort to law. There are three sets of legal proceedings – in the UK, Jersey and Malaysia and the company updated the market on Friday morning: it looks set to drag on for some time. Just who is in charge in the meantime? Anyone?

Galasys – curiouser and curiouser, cried Alice

Published 456 days ago

AIM-listed China and Malaysia hybrid Galasys (GLS) is turning into a fascinating soap-opera and the entertainment was turned up another notch yesterday. Entertainment for onlookers that is, but not for shareholders who might be more than a little concerned at the ongoing difficulty in establishing quite who is in charge – or, at least, who should be in charge – of the company.

David Lenigas – if you insist: let’s talk about dodgy offshore trusts

Published 515 days ago

As part of his play the man not the ball strategy of not answering perfectly fair questions about his interests fat Aussie share ramper David “I love the smell of newly issued confetti in the morning” has moved the debate onto offshore trusts. Oka Dave, since you want to let’s talk about Allied.

AIM-China Filthy40 member Aquatic Foods Interims fail to reassure

Published 567 days ago

One of the problems that AIM-listed China stocks have at the moment is that nobody believes them. Nobody believes the claimed cash-piles or profits. This is amply demonstrated by the stock-market histoire of Aquatic Foods (AFG), a member of the ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty. To remind you, it listed in just February of this year at 70p per share, to give it a market capitalisation of £79.3 million. Yet the shares fell steadily to the current 29p. Today saw Interims to the end of June 2015. Scratch the surface, and the Red Flags are all too apparent.

ShareProphets Filthy Forty: Asia Ceramics and its bizarre lending arrangements with the boss

Published 581 days ago

ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty member and Jersey-registered Asia Ceramics Holdings (ACHP) recently featured HERE in the wake of its after-hours (and Red Flag riddled) full year 2014 results. What emerged was a large market capitalisation relative to (almost) non-existent earnings. But there was also a long string of related party transactions, and a CEO who appeared to be running businesses in China doing the same thing as Asia Ceramics does…in China. But what catches the eye now is an RNS on Tuesday of this week which describes a very peculiar set of loan agreements between CEO Dr Pu and the company.

ShareProphets Filthy Forty – Which national regulator has the most egg on its face re China frauds

Published 592 days ago

The ShareProphets China-AIM Filthy Forty reveals the most shocking statistics of losses for investors, demonstrable frauds and companies being booted off the Casino – see HERE. But which country of incorporation lost investors the most money? Which national regulator has the most egg on its face? Our table has thrown up some surprising statistics. 

Is the fair Isle of Jersey the preferred route for China Norfolks to get onto AIM?

Published 594 days ago

Jersey Finance is terribly keen to get Chinese companies to register in Jersey and list their shares on the London Stock Exchange, notable on the AIM casino. What a marvellous set-up they offer: it is the jurisdiction of choice for corporate entities seeking to list, one fifth of Chinese companies listed in London are registered in Jersey, there is political and economic stability, a sound regulatory reputation and, of course, Jersey Finance has a representative office in Hong Kong (since 2009) just to ease things along. What’s not to like? 

Hotel Corporation – Pledge your Proxy to Marcus Yeoman: a call to arms

Published 597 days ago

Shares in Hotel Corporation (HCP) have moved back to 1.3-1.5p because there are signs of life. This is an ideal cash shell for someone with a track record of doing deals. But right now it is doing nothing. The two directors are Derek Short – a septuagenarian crony capitalist drawing £25,000 a year for sipping G&Ts in Jersey ( no tax there) and David Craine an Isle of Man Crony Capitalist drawing another £25,000 for doing sweet FA from another tax haven.

Takeover Panel demands New World Oil & Gas seek new approval for Niel deal

Published 1008 days ago

Just over a week ago, I wrote this open letter to the Takeover Panel about New World Oil & Gas’ (NEW) never-ending deal with Niel Petroleum and whether the original shareholder approval granted on September 12th 2013 was still valid. It looks like it wasn’t. On Tuesday, New World issued this RNS, in which it was forced to announce “the Transaction [the Niel deal] will be subject to the waiver of the obligation on Niel Petroleum SA to make a general offer under Rule 9 of the Takeveor Code being approved by independent shareholders on a poll”. This is good news for shareholders as they now have the opportunity to scrutinise more thoroughly Kuwaiti firm Al Maraam Trading & Contracting Ltd’s (Al-Maraam) involvement in this. In particular serious, unanswered questions remain on what basis New World can claim that “Al-Maram will participate in all future bid rounds for the drilling and production of oil and gas in Kuwait”.
