FastForward Innovations – Oh dear, Jim Mellon and Lorne Abony have been taking lessons from Mr Woodford!

2018-08-05 08:55:50

Tom covered much of the nonsense surrounding the FastForward Innovations’ (FFWD) placing last week (HERE) but I wanted to look at how Jim Mellon and Lorne Abony got themselves into that particular mess as they seem to have taken a couple of plays straight out of “star fund manager” Neil Woodford’s book.

SCOOP ( NOW CONFIRMED): FastForward is trying to raise £5 million in placing - source

2018-08-01 08:35:46

The results which came out in early July made it clear to anyone who could do basic maths that Jim Mellon's FastForward (FFWD) would be passing the hat around shortly. Three ramptastic RNS's followed and today I can reveal that the company is on the road trying to raise £5 million in fresh equity. 

FastForward Innovations – Jim Mellon’s tucked into the piggy bank yet again!

2018-06-19 02:49:26

If anyone thought anything else other that FastForward Innovations was merely the personal investment vehicle for Jim Mellon and Lorne Abony to dip into at will, today’s massive related party deal with Mellon’s Juvenescence Limited puts it beyond any doubt.

Insanity at FastForward Innovations, someone is definitely smoking something!

2018-01-05 01:21:11

Madness is afoot at FastForward Innovations (FFWD) with the excitement about the impending listing of its cannabis play, Nuuvera, driving the share price up as high as 30p yesterday. This makes no rational sense as I will endeavour to explain but the summary is simple – if you like Nuuvera, buy it in the market for its market value rather than at 4-5 times its value!

FastForward Innovations: Ok, this short-lived love affair is over - SELL

2017-11-28 01:24:05

The one thing I hate more than being wrong about a share recommendation is being spoofed and falling for it, which is what I think has happened with FastForward Innovations (FFWD). Can’t believe I fell for it but I’m done now – SELL.

FastForward Innovations: Looks like good news all round - congrats

2017-11-20 04:22:19

I’ve been hugely critical of FastForward Innovations (FFWD) in the past, in the main due to the lack of transparency and the poor performance of Schoold and Vemo, Lorne Abony’s own investments in FastForward’s portfolio; however, today’s news is much more promising and I actually wonder whether it’s worth a dabble!

Jim Mellon’s FastForward Innovations: Deal off, will Schoold (and Lorne Abony) survive?

2017-11-05 03:29:15

Tom covered the news of the failed Schoold / Lingo Media merger that FastForward Innovations (FFWD) announced on Friday in his Bearcast (HERE); however, I thought it was worth taking a closer look at the numbers and pondering when the next major write down to FastForward’s portfolio, and Lorne Abony’s reputation, will come.

Jim Mellon’s Diabetic Boot Company accounts out – not a pretty picture

2017-10-29 03:28:34

Investors in various Jim Mellon connected companies such as FastForward Innovations (FFWD) and Port Erin Biopharma (PEBI) may be interested in this analysis of Diabetic Boot Company’s latest six-month accounts to 31 December 2016. The bad news is that it is still losing a fortune although the good news is that at least Mr Mellon is now largely funding it himself.

FastForward Innovations: Good news for Nuuvera – well done Lorrne!

2017-10-09 00:24:46

I’ve been pretty critical of Jim Mellon's FastForward Innovations (FFWD) and its CEO, Lorne Abony, in the past but today’s news is a positive step for one of its investee companies, Nuuvera, and worthy of comment and the only negative relates to the obvious blunder that offends my OCD proof-reading nature.

Jim Mellon's FastForward Innovations: Details finally come out of the Schoold merger horror show – shareholders look away now!

2017-08-15 02:39:41

After months of promises and delays, Jim Mellon's FastForward Innovations (FFWD) finally provided further details of the potential merger of investee company Schoold with Lingo Media this morning. I can see why it was reticent about making the announcement as it doesn’t make pretty reading.

FastForward Innovations: Another disappointing Lorne deal – disgraceful non-disclosure

2017-07-09 04:44:08

Tom covered the key headlines on the year-end results of Jim Mellon's FastForward Innovations (FFWD) on Friday but I wanted to focus in on a couple of points, most notably the exorbitant amount Lorne Abony, CEO, gets paid considering the despicable way in which he treats his shareholders and the shocking performance, and non-disclosure, of one of the investments that he brought to the table, namely Vemo.

Pure Horse Shit from Jim Mellon's FastForward - the shares will continue to tank

2017-07-07 08:11:47

FastForward (FFWD) the investment company chaired by my old friend, the offshore based asset stripper Mr Jim Mellon, served up results for the year to 31 March today. Cynical Bear will give them the full workover they merit over the weekend  but I could not give my old pal Jim a completely free pass. The numbers are shite

Competition time – which of these sleep-inducing delays will come to an end first?

2017-07-02 11:07:56

To end my trilogy of tenuously connected pieces, I’m taking a look at four ongoing coma-inducing delays at each of FastForward Innovations (FFWD), i3 Energy and, of course, Aidan Earley’s Newco and wonder which, if any, will win this slow and laborious race.

Jim Mellon's Diabetic Boot Company spoof unravelling as late accounts filed

2017-06-11 08:37:00

I’ve written a few times on the travails of The Diabetic Boot Company over time, usually after yet another Jim Mellon-related company lends or invests money in this biotech pipedream. Well, its results have finally come out, two months late, and they make interesting reading.

FastForward Innovations – What’s going on with Nuuvera? More like New Tricks!

2017-06-03 00:08:26

There’s a few short-term challenges ahead for Jim Mellon's FastForward Innovations (FFWD) but for this piece I wanted to focus on the one I find most amusing, namely its most recent investment in the marijuana space, Nuuvera Corp, which reminds me of an episode of Dennis Waterman’s finest work – New Tricks.

FastForward Innovations – More concerns over the Lingo Media / Schoold deal: will it actually happen?

2017-05-08 01:52:14

I wrote about the rather unexciting merger between Schoold and Lingo Media that FastForward Innovations (FFWD) announced in March (HERE) but with Lingo Media recently issuing its full year results, I felt it merited an update. They don’t make great reading and I’m beginning to wonder whether the deal will actually go ahead.

FastForward Innovations – Got any spare change as the Moet is running low?

2017-04-04 03:06:36

When reading this morning’s RNS from FastForward Innovation (FFWD), I just had this image of Lorne Abony and Jim Mellon scrabbling around behind the back of the sofas in FastForward Towers looking for some spare change as the cash crunch (detailed HERE) becomes ever more pressing. The announcement related to a change in the lock-in arrangements relating to the sale of the SatoshiPay investment to Blue Star Capital (BLU).

FastForward Innovations – All the cash has gone so when’s the placing?

2017-03-26 00:33:12

Having been put in a bad mood with the disappointing Schoold deal that I covered HERE, I thought I’d dig a bit deeper to see how much cash is left in Jim Mellon backed FastForward (FFWD) business and what I think that means for the future and why it looks overvalued to me.

FastForward Innovations – Did you lie or is Schoold just a rubbish investment?

2017-03-26 00:28:26

I’ve been on the edge of my seat for a number of days as was expecting news from Jim Mellon backed FastForward Innovations (FFWD) on its Schoold deal at any moment as the 75 day exclusivity period with a potential strategic acquirer had reached an end. The anticlimactic news arrived on Friday (as covered in Tom’s Bearcast HERE) and I merely felt deflated but today I’ve woken up angry and wonder if FastForward has actually lied to me!

FastForward - On the ramp again, guess cash must really be low and it's placing ahoy

2016-10-09 01:43:58

FastForward - On the ramp again, guess cash must really be low and it's placing ahoy
Lorne Abony must have needed a holiday because having been running at more than one RNS a week for most of the year things went quiet (relatively) in August and September at FastForward Innovations (FFWD), the second most self-ramped stock on AIM. But now old Lorne is back in full ramptastic mode with two announcements in two days at the end of last week.

Just when is the next FastForward placing, this ramping is getting frantic

2016-07-31 09:10:44

In our recent coverage of FastForward Innovations (FFWD) both Cynical Bear and myself have pointed out that the maths in its ramptastic announcements to the mug punters who back this stock, simply do not add up. But there is a bigger problem...the company is running out of cash.

FastForward Innovations – Late night RNS: yet another poor connected investment from the Thompson Twins

2016-07-28 00:47:08

FastForward Innovations (FFWD) issued an after-hours RNS yesterday at 4.59pm announcing its next investment. Surely it wasn’t embarrassed by it? Let’s take a look.

FastForward and its Yooya metrics this now becomes utterly laughable, beyond parody

2016-07-21 04:41:40

Even the Quindell fraudster Rob Terry would have been ashamed of this nonsense. Yesterday I flagged up how the latest ramptastic RNS from FastForward (FFWD) was sheer bollocks in the made up numbers department. Today the company has responded with an explanation which will have you pissing yourself. It is so utterly mad that the company's Nomad must surely be considering its position (or have no shame). This is sheer comedy.

FastForward - ramptastic update ahead of placing: but the numbers do not add up

2016-07-20 03:31:50

In this , the 29th week of 2016, over-ramped bubble stock FastForward Innovations (FFWD) has just issued its 43rd RNS of the year. Pump, pump, pump...the dump is on its way. As a bonus the numbers in today's statement simply do not add up at all. It is pure shite but maybe the morons will buy it because another placing is on the way. Today's update concerns a Chinese Company called Yooya in which FastForward has invested.

Fast Forward: strategic update = shameless pre placing ramp

2016-07-14 06:22:01

How on earth did hapless Nomad Peel Hunt sign off on what Jim Mellon's FastForward Innovations (FFWD) terms a "strategic update" but is in fact nothing more than a shameless pre placing ramp.?  My comments are in bold. FastForward's are not.

FastForward – clarification over the $1 million. Now what about that £500,000?

2016-06-02 23:59:56

Following my piece on Wednesday asking what had happened to a second tranche of investment into Leap Gaming, AIM-listed FastForward Innovations (FFWD) yesterday finally got around to an RNS confirming that it has now all completed. Hot on the heels of Cynical Bear’s Gotcha on Boxhill (BOX) perhaps we should start up a ShareProphets Nomad Services outfit - £30,000 a year retainer per company? That’ll do nicely.

FastForward – Uber ramp as new Nomad/Broker signals Placing Ahoy

2016-06-01 06:54:06

I have a few questions to add to Tom Winnifrith’s and Cynical Bear’s coverage of the fine outfit that is AIM-listed FastForward Innovations Ltd (FFWD). I’m sure there are perfectly reasonable explanations, but perhaps the company might like to share them – especially with a placing so obviously on the way as the (re-) renewal of what was once the AIM-China play called London Asia Chinese Private Equity Fund (CGOP) continues.

FastForward Innovations – Lorne Abony is clearly better than Accel Partners and Sequoia Capital combined!

2016-05-25 00:17:43

I’ve been looking forward to seeing the final results of FastForward Innovations (FFWD) which came out late yesterday due to a ridiculous comment that the CEO, Lorne Abony, made at the recent Master Investor Show.

FastForward – the interesting case of The Diabetic Foot Company

2016-05-08 05:42:22

Having been critical of the Lorne Abony show and FastForward innovation’s (FFWD) recent investments in Vemo and Schoold in my last piece HERE, I thought I’d take a closer look at one of the earlier investments, The Diabetic Foot Company (“DBC”), as, funnily enough, related parties raise their ugly head again there too.

FastForward Innovations – 3 reasons why I can’t invest in the Lorne Abony show

2016-04-24 06:01:55

Following on from a few bearish pieces from Tom on FastForward Innovations (FFWD) that you can see HERE, I have my own views on why what was the “Jim Mellon show” but is fast becoming the “Lorne Abony show” is a no-go investment for me.

FastForward - offshore acquisition - what is it hiding?

2016-04-11 02:33:44

Offshore based Jim Mellon's uber-ramped FastForward Innovations (FFWD) has today announced that it is spunking $3.5 million on buying 29.5% of Frails LLC, the owner of Leap Gaming, it will soon go to 41.5% at a total cost of $3.5 million so valuing this strange enterprise at $8.4 million.

FastForward - has Jim Mellon taken lessons from Lenigas on RNS blizzard rampfests

2016-04-08 00:35:26

Since March 3 in 25 working days, my old pal Jim Mellon's AIM casino listed FastForward Innovations (FFWD) has released 9 ramptastic good news RNS statements - one every three days. Since 31 March it has released 6 statements - that is to say almost one a day. It is almost as if Jim has been taking lessons from the master, Mr David Lenigas, on the art of the blizzard of ramptastic releases. Yet another placing with your tea vicar? It is also the nature of the releases that concerns me.

Tom Winnifrith's share tips of the year Number 4 - Sell Fast Forward Innovations at 17p

2015-12-31 05:03:04

A reader posted on our comments section: "Ive also just bought into FFWD. Tom why can't you tip this for 2016 instead of repeat tips on OPTI and NIPT?" Hmmm well I am sure that Optiobiotix shares will race ahead ( 100p + within weeks after the next deal is announced) and that Premaitha will announce new contracts and that it is passed the inflexion point of cash breakeven soon and that its shares will head to 30p+. That is why I tip them as buys. You want me to tip shares that will go up ,right? But your wish is my command and so I will also tip FastForward Innovations. But as a sell at 17p.
