Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Colin Bird, Rio Ferdinand & Toxic Dave Sefton: 2 bad guys and a hero but would you want any on the board?
I recently wrote on Mirriad Advertising (MIRI) “Executive LTIP award”… Er, what for?!. The “computer vision and AI platform company” - which argues its “award-winning solution unleashes new revenue for content producers and distributors by creating new advertising inventory in content” - has now produced its 2019 annual report and accounts...
I earlier argued a “Proposed Share Option Regrant” disgrace from Corero Network Security and also now note from Mirriad Advertising (MIRI) “Executive LTIP award, Director and PDMR dealings”...
You have been warned so many times by myself about the uber dog Mirriad (MIRI) which listed on the AIM casino at 62p per share in December 2017. The shares are now 6.25p so shame on Nomad and broker Numis for this hound. Today we have calendar 2018 results and a warning that it needs a bailout placing within a year. I should cocoa.
Cynical Bear warned you that the 62p per share, £63 million, IPO of Mirriad Advertising (MIRI) would cause tears before bedtime. Obviously not for IP Group (IPO) which was able to justify its daft pre IPO investments in relation to that crackers listing price. Nor for Nomad and broker Numis or PR parasites Hudson Sandler which will have earned fat fees for the listing. Coke and hookers all round for the crony capitalists. But for anyone dumb enough to buy the stock since the IPO this has been a horror show. The shares are now just 30p mid, they have more than halved in ten months on the AIM Casino. So what’s today’s news? It is bad, natch.
Just before last Christmas, I compared and contrasted two new AIM IPOs that both came to market at just over 60p in the broad “adtech” space. An IP Group-backed dog, Mirriad Advertising (MIRI) and what I though was an interesting play at a low valuation, Pelatro (PTRO).
An interesting compare and contrast for me today looking at the two technology businesses that joined AIM yesterday at a very similar share price. That is where the similarities end though as one is a classic example of an overvalued business bid up by participants in the valuation echo chamber and one looks like that rare mythological beast – a Cynical Bear Buy tip. Let’s start with Mirriad Advertising (MIRI), the massive Sell pick.
