Another case of when is a lock-in not a lock-in? Gunsynd & a related party nest of snakes and Chris Akers
On 28 December 2017, ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty play Aquatic Foods Group issued an RNS stating that it couldn’t publish accounts for 2016 and the shares would be booted off AIM the following morning. Of course, there’s a lot more to that and ShareProphets had been predicting the demise for months. Now the patsy NEDs have issued a statement and it is clear that ShareProphets was right all along.
With apologies to Douglas Adams, as long predicted here on ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty play Aquatic Foods (AFG) didn’t get its 2016 accounts out and the AIM Executioner has done its duty. After six months suspended, it has been given the boot.
AIM-listed Filthy Forty play Aquatic Foods Group (AFG) has at last posted an RNS. Given that its FY16 accounts are overdue by almost 6 months, and its interims by heading for three, you would have thought we might have an update on that. But no: instead the resignation of Mircle Ching Chai Yap was announced. This chap has a spot of form….
We are now a day from the end of November and STILL ShareProphets Aim-China Filthy Forty play Aquatic Foods (AFG) has not published its FY16 accounts, which are now a day short of five months late. Also outstanding are this year’s interims, which should have been out by the end of September.
And so it came to pass that ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty play Aquatic Foods (AFG) didn’t even bother to update the market at the end of October on the supposed progress towards getting its FY16 accounts released – accounts which should have been released by 30 June. The interims to June are also overdue, but there is no statement at all! Step forward those fine fellows at S P Angel, the company’s Nomad.
Here we are again, with the last days of the month playing out and (as yet) no word from ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty poster-boy Aquatic Foods Group. It missed the June 30th deadline to file its FY16 accounts and each month since then we’ve been promised news next month.
ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty play Aquatic Foods Group (AFG) has at last appointed a new finance director to replace the previous incumbent who left all of a sudden as the company announced it was unable to release its FY16 numbers. Good news...er, well sort of.
It’s that time of the month again: ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty play Aquatic Foods (AFG) seemed to promise its delayed FY16 accounts by the end of the month. In June the excuse was it couldn’t get its cash out of China, but the directors were going to pony up so as to pay certain advisers (ie the Auditor) and the results would be out in July. Oh, and the next day the CFO (who had been in post less than a year since the previous incumbent walked) resigned with immediate effect - having signed off the RNS.
Yesterday at 4.14pm ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty play Aquatic Foods (AFG) updated the market regarding its overdue FY16 accounts. Once again we are left waiting until next month – Godot is definitely coming tomorrow, honest guv, when the new FD is appointed. So nothing to do with the problems getting cash out of China to pay auditors, Nomad fees and director fees as we were previously told?
We are two days from the end of August and we’ve had diddly squat from ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty play Aquatic Foods (AFG) which is currently suspended pending accounts. In June it said they would be in July, and that directors were going to pony up to get enough bills paid to see the accounts signed. In July it hadn’t happened and there was no mention of it. Will the accounts appear this time?
ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty play Aquatic Foods Group (AFG) has released news of its delayed FY16 numbers in an (almost) no-one is watching o’clock RNS yesterday, released at 4.26 pm – 12.26am local time in China. Goodness me, they must have been putting the wording together for hours! Needless to say, there are still no accounts. In my view the whole thing is a joke and Nomad SP Angel is being made to look foolish: take a look at the directors’ page of the company website!
ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty play Aquatic Foods (AFG) shares were suspended last month because it couldn’t get its accounts out on time. We were told that this was because of difficulties getting its enormous cash-pile out of China to pay a number of parties whose assistance is required for the finalisation of the audited accounts. For that, we might presume that it includes the audit firm. We were told that the accounts were anticipated to be released in July – and here we are with 6 trading days left. Is it crunch time?
Oh boy, it’s time to revisit Marcus Stuttard’s Septic Seven and we have yet another suspension. You will recall that this portfolio of seven diversified stocks from the AIM Casino was chosen for Mr Stuttard so that he might demonstrate his faith is his own regulatory setup at the world’s most successful growth market – but with the caveat that all the stocks selected had been Red Flagged but were still trading. In the week that the LSE washed its hands of any responsibility for fraud it is scores of the doors time, after not quite 10 months.
Late on Friday, at no-one is watching O'Clock we learned that Po Ling Low had quit as FD of AIM listed China fraud Aquatic Foods (AFG) with immediate effect. Really? It was 5.21 in London so it was 1.12 in the morning in China. Did Po really walk the plank so late in the evening. Clearly that was just another lie from this slam dunk fraud.
Well there’s a thing: ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty stock Aquatic Foods Group (AFG) is still having trouble remitting funds from China resulting in the delay of payments to a number of parties whose assistance is required for the finalisation of the audited accounts. In short, the company can’t pay its bills and the shares have been suspended.
Yesterday lunchtime (1pm – the new no-one-is-watching o’clock) ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty purveyor of all things fishy, Aquatics Foods Group (AFG) served up a Q1 trading statement showing broadly flat sales, but rising costs. The really good news is that the cash-pile is even higher than before, at RMB 485 million – c. £54 million, or about five times the market capitalisation. The bad news….
ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty purveyor of all things fishy, Aquatic Foods (AFG), has updated on 2016 Q4 trading this morning. In a statement plastered with Red Flags it would appear that the company is nearing the final chapter of the China Norfolk playbook as we are warned that there has been a spot of bother getting cash out of China. Is it bye-bye to the dividend?
Shares in ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty play Aquatic Foods (AFG) put on 35% on Friday, following release of a third quarter trading update. Drilling through some of the numbers they seem to be impressive, begging the question of why an apparently profitable and cash-generative company which is drowning in cash worth about three times its market capitalisation would be considering its dividend policy, having chopped the half-year payment by 71%.
Oh dear, oh dear. This does not look good. ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty China fraud Aquatic Foods Group (AFG) has announced that it hasn’t paid its full-year dividend of 0.7p per share due to a “technical administrative delay”. Is that because there isn’t any cash?
There are so many Red Flags surrounding ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty Aquatic Foods (AFG) that it is hard to know quite where to start. One could consider the discount to cash, to profits, to assets and wonder why there have been no buy-backs announced just for starters, but there are plenty more to be found HERE. So why have the shares been roofing it?
This morning ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty play Aquatic Foods Group (AFG) released its calendar FY15 results. This is a complete farce and AIM Regulation should be ashamed, for that is where the real scandal lies.
ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty play Aquatic Foods (AFG) released a trading statement yesterday for its full year to Dec 2015. I commented that the last trading statement had more holes than a fish-net and yesterday’s serving of fishiness lowers none of the Red Flags previously raised.
Following on from yesterday's piece on ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty play Aquatic Foods Group (AFG) we see that the shares are still sliding. Drip, drip, drip - the Chinese water torture continues.
Tom Winnifrith has already done an open-top bus ride around all the Red Flags flapping away at ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty play Aquatic Foods Group (AFG). But if the Red Flags are enough to drive you towards the sell button there is another problem: the spread is now so wide that it is equal to the bid price. Talk about being lobster-potted.
ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty play Aquatic Foods (AFG) released a trading statement this morning. All going well despite the slow-down in China – turnover up, big cash-pile, shares at a big discount to cash etc etc. So the shares are down 15%. What?
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.
On Monday AIM-listed Aquatic Foods Group plc (AFG), a Jersey-based holding company with its main assets in Shandong Province in China, held its AGM. Ahead of that gathering it was announced that Mr John McLean (hitherto the Deputy Chairman and Senior non-Exec) had withdrawn his candidacy for re-election to the board. Red Flag? Read on (especially if your name is Xavier Rolet, CEO of the LSE).
