ShareProphets China AIM 'Filthy Forty' performance update – October & the results season wasn't pretty
Charlie Wood the interim CEO at Mayan Energy (MYN) managed to cling onto his role at last Thursday's GM despite the very serious evidence of a massive COI over the Deloro deal which saw his wife get almost free shares in Deloro while Mayan provided most of its funding. So how on earth did Wood win the vote. Richard Jennings of Align, Wood's bete noire, makes some observations:
Richard Jennings of Align is not letting go and has posted 5 questions for long suffering Mayan Energy (MYN) shareholders to put to Charlie Wood at the GM tomorrow before booting him off the board. He has raised these matters with Nomad Roland "Fatty" Cornish but London's most useless adviser thinks that it is not his job to keep companies in order. His job is to bank fat retainers from companies, let them do what they want and then to head out for a five course lunch every day. Great! More spotted dick with lashings of custard waiter! Anyhow, over to Jennings who writes:
Earlier today we published the call by Richard Jennings to shareholders in Mayan (MYN) to oust CEO Charlie Wood at Thursday's GM. That was part 1. Thanks to Winnileaks we now have the letters Jennings sent to Wood with questions that he will not answer. His silence is damning and anyone attending the GM should push him on this matter. I have ensured that Mayan's useless Nomad Beaumont Cornish is aware of them and hope that it will force answers to be given and published. Prepare to be shocked....
I gather that the new interim CEO Charlie Wood may not survive the Mayan (MYN) GM vote on Thursday. It looks tight and anyone reading the incendiary note by Zac Phillips earlier today is unlike to be shouting Je Suis Charlie. Now Richard Jennings of Align Research has weighed in with a no holds barred letter to shareholders calling on them to oust Wood. As they say...more to follow but the Jennings letter is below:
Four days ago the CEO walked with immediate effect and without explanation. Today there is a pathetic statement from Mayan Energy (MYN) not explaining why the CEO was resigning but stating that everything is up for review: management, assets, operations. Until that is done capex is on hold. The only thing we are not told is how much cash is left. I suspect that is because the answer is SFA. On the case is the City's No 1 oil analyst Zac Phillips of SP Angel. Zac the knife pulls no punches and writes:
For reasons not explained the CEO of Mayan Energy (MYN) has quit with immediate effect. The City's No 1 oil analyst Zac Phillips thinks this is a good move, although probably a prelude to yet another bailout placing. But his report is still damning and is below.
This is an interesting business model. Write to your client, for whom you have published bullish paid for research notes, open letters slagging them off. I wonder what the renewal rate is at Align Research? Anyhow the latest target of Align boss Richard Jennings is Charlie Wood of Mayan Energy (MYN) who received the stinging missive below today. Ouch.
Given the lowly market cap of Mayan (MYN) any placing will have to be a heavily discounted bucket shop special. In light of that, investors should take heed of an explicit warning from the City’s No 1 oil analyst Zac “the Knife” Phillips of SP Angel. In an email he writes:
In his morning email to his esteemed clients, Zac “The Knife” Phillips, of SP Angel, the UK’s no 1 oil analyst, has utterly ripped into Mayan Energy (MYN) demanding the sacking of the entire board. The great man opines:
Mayan Energy (MYN) has not had a placing since it raised £2 million gross at 0.6p in mid November. Circa £1.5 million of that went out of the door at once on commission and an acquisition so the tank must be running kind of dry by now. Hence Align being paid to initiate (bullish) research and seven ramptastic releases in less than three months. Today's is shocking and Nomad Roland "Fatty" Cornish, London's most useless Corporate adviser, should be hung drawn and quartered for signing off on it.
The City's No 1 oil analyst makes an oblique reference to the shoddy way this stock is promoted but the reality is that today's news is grim and it is placing ahoy (YET AGAIN). Zac "the Knife" Phillips of SP Angel opines:
Ramptastic - if not entirely transparent RNS releases, Bulletin Board and twitter ramping by all the usual suspects with ludicrous price targets, no cash. What on earth did you expect was going to happen next at perennial uber dog Mayan Energy (MYN)? As those who were paying up to 0.9p at peak ramp just a few days ago contemplate how they were used to get away a £2 million placing at 0.6p they should have very serious questions for London's worst Nomad Roland Fatty Cornish who has signed off in recent ramptastic releases. Enter the fray Zac "The Knife" Phillips of SP Angel, the City's top oil analyst who has 14 questions that a Nomad with a shred of integrity and competence would have asked before allowing the releases. Over to The Knife who writes:
Even by the standards of the City's No 1 oil analyst Zac "The Knife" Phillips of SP Angel this morning's note was a savage and brutal attack. Think of a hunter bludgeoning a baby seal to death. The object of the Knife's ire is AIM disaster story Mayan Energy (MYN) and the great man writes:
Another day and another director walks, a new strategy is adopted and yet more confetti is issued by AIM casino uber dog Mayan Energy (MYN), formally the hound known as Northcote Energy. But this latest move just makes no sense at all. Let me explain with a little bit of help from a friend....
