Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: correction on Skinbiotherapeutics share sale, an SP Angel insider dealing scandal? And is Opti's Steve O'Hara a liar like Bidstack's Draper?
It is not often that a press release has me reaching for a dictionary but today’s Covid 19 update from Big Dish (DISH) manages that. The company’s evil spin doctor my old pal the Sith Lord Zak Mir, tries to use a long word but I am not sure he knows what it means.
I recounted, in the most recent edition of ShareProphets Radio, working for a dotcom where everyone talked about “eyeballs”, revenue well who cared about that. Big Dish (DISH) appears to live in the same sort of parallel universe. We have another trading statement where , for reasons I suspect of embarrassment, Big Dish declines to give any sales metrics.
I explained in great detail in yesterday’s bearcast why Big Dish (DISH) chairman Jonathan Morley-Kirk needs to be fired or "resigned" at once over the statements made via RNS on May 30 a week ahead of a placing which, interims out yesterday, showed (again) to be a most monstrous lie. But those interims are also non IFRS compliant and must thus be reissued and for this latest bollocks up the man who is meant to bring City experience to the board, Morley-Kirk, must surely walk.
A stream of articles on this monstrous lie was followed by lunch with Big Dish (DISH ) founder Aidan Bishop and his PR spinner the Sith Lord Zak Mir here at the Welsh hovel. I urged the company to make a full apology and to make serious boardroom charges. Today it has gone only half way there. It is not enough to make the shares investable.
Is the, until today, CEO of Big Dish (DISH) Sanj Naha a liar? The articles we have run on this website over the past few months show that statements were issued by RNS in his name, notably on May 30 2019, that were lies. But did he act alone or is the whole board complicit?
Following weekend revelations HERE and HERE about the “rollout” of new restaurants signed up by Big Dish (DISH), this morning I have further bad news from Bristol and surely this means that the company must fess up with a formal trading statement/lack of profits warning now.
Anyone buying shares in Big Dish (DISH) is off their rocker at two levels, notwithstanding the appointment of my good friend, the Sith Lord Zak Mir as the company’s PR man. Firstly, as I discussed here, is the fact that it is prepared to tell manifest industrial scale lies to investors. Secondly…
BigDish (DISH) “is pleased to announce that it has reached an agreement with NFS Technology Group to integrate BigDish within its Point of Sale software solution for restaurants” – noting “NFS Technology Group have been operating for over 20 years and has over 1,500 clients”. The shares are though currently more than 4% lower on the day at 3.25p. Hmmm…
As you may know I like the management at Big Dish (DISH) and its PR guru/Digital Communications Officer the Sith Lord Zak Mir is one of my very few friends. Pro tem. As such it pains me to say this but this company is now shown, with the publication of its results, to have lied to the market on May 30th 2019 in the most serious of ways, just eight days ahead of a £2.1 million placing. This should be jail time for someone.
Oh dear, Oh Dear. We have another operational update today. This just looks ever more messy for Big Dish (DISH) as we once again return to the 30th May ramptastic RNS which came just seven days before a £2.1 million placing.
I noted a few weeks ago, the way Big Dish (DISH) had issued an RNS essentially stating that “funding secured” (so no placing needed) and then a week later doing a placing and ‘fessing that even with the £2 million it raised it now only had cash until 2021. Was that market abuse? Today it got worse.
I like the chap behind Big Dish (DISH) so it pains me to say this but as it announces a placing today can it please not tell me why it has not done an Elon Musk “funding secured” grotesque act of market abuse? Let me explain:
Having asked for readers tips for 2019 for the amazing prize of a meal with Tom Winnifrith (or the chance to fob it off on someone you don't like) HERE, the following is a monthly update on performance (to be eligible needed to have selected, on a per username basis, a buy & sell pick from the LSE or AIM Casino and the stocks not to have been suspended at the commencement of 2019)...
Hello Share Scratchers. A week ago, when I suggested you look at BigDish (DISH), Uncle Tom and some talented ShareProphets commentators took a dim view. They suggested that an announcement that more locations for the restaurant ordering service were being rolled out was no indication of success...
Hello Share Munchers. Now here’s a novel idea for the technological age. You’ve heard of Late Rooms which began as a way of filling empty hotels at the last minute. Well, BigDish (DISH) aims to perform similarly for restaurants. The company helps to fill tables at quiet times by offering quickly applied discounts...
Restaurant ‘yield management’ (i.e. reservations with discounts to fill spare capacity) platform company BigDish (DISH) has updated including, “we note the recent share price volatility… but believe the overhang in the market has now been removed and we look forward to future positive market updates”…
Having IPO’d at 4.5p last week, shares in ‘restaurant yield management platform’ company BigDish (DISH) yesterday - on the back of a “BigDish UK Growth Strategy” announcement - closed up at 5.375p; Good news as this was a UK Investor Show Dragon's Den pick from myself…
BigDish plc (DISH) is a restaurant services company newly entered onto the Standard List this morning. At an IPO price of 4.5p it is calitalised at £12.9 million. I spoke to Aidan Bishop, founder and chairman of BigDish plc. about how BigDish works and where it fits in between existing restaurant plays Groupon (NASDAQ:GRPN), Deliveroo, and Just Eat (JE).
