Verditek gets £315,000 of your cash to spunk in Zimbabwe – its still going to be out of cash by Christmas

2021-09-13 13:51:32

We have covered the dodgy grants and loans handed out by taxpayer funded Innovate UK many times on this website. You will be delighted that it is at it again, this time handing out £315,000 to serial failures and deceivers of investors Verditek UK.  The grant is over 18 months but Verditek will be out of cash by Christmas this year but who cares? it is only taxpayer cash isn’t it?


Verditek Interims – Timber! Ponzi Bond at risk

2021-08-26 09:00:25

It is only two weeks since Crowd For Angels, the world’s worst crowdfunding firm, closed its failed attempt to raise £500,000 for the serial liars at Verditek (VDTK) and now we get interims which tell you that, by Christmas, those fools lured by Richard "Gollum" Gill’s grotesquely misleading financial promotions into backing the bond will be at risk. These numbers are a disaster for the company led by Tory toff Lord Willetts. Insolvency beckons.


How do you KNOW when a company is facing a cash crunch? A case study - Verditek

2021-08-21 16:55:28

I preface this by saying that Verditek (VDTK) is a company that can lie about winning take or pay contracts just to get a placing away. In the end, the “customer” – and I use the word loosely – neither takes or pays. So anything it says in an RNS, even its cash balance, is not something that I would necessarily believe. But to make life simple, I give it the benefit of the doubt and assume its stated cash balances are, more or less, correct.


Verditek – the Green ponzi bond flops! Yet another failure on Gollum's CV

2021-08-10 08:30:44

It has taken it 10 days to fess, something it blames on a cooling off period, but Verditek (VDTK) has admitted that the green ponzi bond launched by ninth rate crowdfunder Crowd For Angels has, despite the utterly misleading financial promotions approved by revolting Richard “Gollum” Gill, flopped. So where next?


Verditek – as ever London Stock Exchange Rules do not apply to a company run by a Tory Toff

2021-08-03 08:06:10

Over at Powerhouse Energy (PHE), the chairman is branded a liar by a High Court Judge but because Tim Yeo is a Tory Toff he gets to keep his job. At Verditek (VDTK) – the company that repeatedly announces big contracts to ramp the shares ahead of a placing only for the contracts to evaporate once the mug punters have ponied up, the Tory Toff in charge is Lord David Willetts. Because the good Lord is just the sort of fine fellow to whom we should all doff our cap, normal AIM rules don’t apply.


Verditek Full Year numbers: the contract lies exposed – will Gollum update his crowdfund pitch?

2021-06-30 09:44:21

Will Richard Gill, aka Gollum, the AIM Shit of the year 2012-2020, update the Crowd For Angels green ponzi bond prospectus to reflect the lies exposed by today’s full year results from Verditek (VDTK)? I doubt it. Remember that in the run-up to an October 2020 £3.5 million fund raise, this company announced EIGHT sales contracts.


Verditek fesses up that there’s been an Italian job but what is the near insolvent company not admitting to?

2021-06-24 10:32:39

Okay it is not gold bullion and nobody seems to have blown the bloody doors off but near insolvent Verditek (VDTK) says that £300,000 of stock has been half-inched from its Italian factory. The RNS starts with a predictable half-truth.


EXPOSE: Richard "Gollum" Gill & Crowd for Angels UK, the "saviours" of Verditek

2021-06-02 11:51:34

It is with a heavy heart but, as an upstanding member of the community, it is my duty. I shall be reporting Crowd for Angels and its compliance officer, Mr Richard “Gollum” Gill, to the FCA later today arguing that they are potentially misleading investors in a material way with regard to the “underwritten” Green bond for AIM listed uber dog Verditek (VDTK) which I covered yesterday.


Verditek – clutches at green crowdfund straws signed off by compliance officer Richard “Gollum” Gill, AIM shit of the year 2014-21

2021-06-01 09:51:36

As I have noted many times, following the “disappearance” of the eight contracts Verditek (VDTK) used to ramp the shares ahead of its last bailout placing, it is a company without revenue and now, once again, almost out of cash. And this it seems that equity investors have had enough and so the company has resorted to even dimmer and more credulous punters from the crowdfunding community. I have no idea what Tory Toff Lord Willetts is smoking other than a last cigar marked desperation but this makes no sense.


Verditek – what will the auditors say about the carrying value of inventory if the company has not already gone bust?

2021-05-06 11:09:07

The cash position at Verditek (VDTK) must be really grim by now. Cash balances at 31 December – just a couple of months after a £3.5 million fund raise – were just £1.7 million. Still not generating any revenues at all, my guess is that cash is now well under £1 million and heading south rapidly. As the auditors consider 2020 accounts, they must surely be insisting that there is a material uncertainty as to whether this can be viewed as a going concern or not. But there is another million dollar question.


In anything other than a raging and insane market this company would be valued at 0p

2021-04-23 09:26:24

Verditek (VDTK) is a company that I have exposed as a serial liar and warned about many times before and my bearishness has been vindicated. Last August, at peak ramp, the shares stood at 18p. Egged on by disgraced share tipster Mike Walters, some folks paid almost 20p a pop. Today the spread is 3.7p-3.9p but even that values this business at £12.8 million which is insane as fair value is clearly zero. The valuation tells you everything you need to know about the insane market in which we operate.


Verditek – Another letter to FCA & AIM Regulation as the cash rapidly runs out

2021-04-15 12:13:08

I have communicated with Britain’s finest regulators, no sniggering at the back please, a number of times on the matter of AIM bad boy Verditek (VDTK), the company run by Tory Toff Lord Willetts which is heading rapidly for insolvency. I have written again on the matter of its market abuse, deceiving investors to pump the shares ahead of bailout placings. The letter is below:


The Butler warns: Verditek – countdown to bailout placing or insolvency, tick tock tick tock

2021-04-09 09:14:02

As his loyal butler presents a plate of a fresh kipper, rushed by the overnight train from Arbroath, in front of Tory Toff David Willetts this morning, his Lordship must be pondering seriously whether Verditek (VDTK), the company he chairs, is, itself, at serious risk of becoming a dead herring. The company has survived since its 2017 IPO by generating not a cent of revenue but by announcing numerous contracts to ramp the shares ahead of bailout placings only to admit later that the contracts have come to nowt. But what now?


Verditek – more bad news from Tory Toff Lord Willetts, cash crisis looms

2021-04-01 10:20:42

Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear. That used to be the catchphrase of disgraced penny share tipster Mike Walters of Minmet, 3DM, Polly Peck, Pursuit Dynamics, etc, etc infamy. I wonder if he will be using it today as the Verditek (VDTK) dog he has promoted so aggressively has coughed up to another lack of sales warning. It means that a bailout discount placing is inevitable within the next couple of months but natch the company, chaired by Tory Toff Lord Willetts, polishes the turd.


Letter to AIM Regulation – Verditek: there must be a formal enquiry into the pre-placing deceit

2021-01-28 10:49:12

Yesterday, Verditek (VDTK) finally ‘fessed that its 2020 revenues would be almost nothing. That is despite it announcing on June 30 that its Italian operation was now “in production and is generating revenue” and the announcement of no less than EIGHT separate orders from 30 June onwards. All of those “orders” were announced before a bailout placing on October 6. And it is not as if this company, chaired by Tory Toff Lord Willetts, has not got extensive form in announcing big orders before placings which then turn out to be bogus. The Oxymorons at AIM Regulation could have stopped this if they had heeded my calls in a letter to them about a full enquiry into past pre-placing deceits going back right to the IPO but they did nothing. There now needs to be a full enquiry into the company and into Nomad WH Ireland with public censures resulting. My letter is below:


More ouzo for me but not for Mike Walters & Tory Toff Lord Willetts as Verditek forced to ‘fess up to its deceit

2021-01-27 12:31:03

Twice in the past week, most stridently yesterday afternoon HERE, I have made it clear that Verditek (VDTK), the serial AIM sewer deceiver ramped by shamed tipster “old mother” Walters and chaired by Tory toff Lord Willetts, needed to come clean on yet another pre-placing deceit and its lack of revenues. I guess the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation were listening as this morning the company fessed up. It's ouzo time for me!


Verditek: Oops They did it again! Another pre-placing announced contract up in smoke

2020-12-17 15:19:08

In my detailed coverage of the POS AIM Company Verditek (VDTK) I have shown how in every year since its IPO it has announced contracts, ramped the shares and then having raised funds in a bailout placing or two, the contracts disappear. Sometimes it ‘fesses up, sometimes there is no 'fess, other times I have to run articles and sheeplishly, Tory Toff Lord Willetts and his chums are forced into an RNS. Well here we go again.


How should a cash-strapped enterprise spend its last pennies? ref. Verditek

2020-10-22 13:42:46

What would you do if you were running a PLC with almost no cash and which was burning cash? It is a position I have been in and it is not a good place to be. You cut costs perhaps? Or you just do whatever is needed to raise fresh equity whatever the cost involved in doing that...


BREAKING: Technically Insolvent Verditek – the questions Scott Evans answers and you will piss yourself laughing

2020-10-14 12:11:26

Verditek (VDTK), a company with negative net current assets and which is burning cash so is technically insolvent, has today announced the publication of a research report. Natch, the pathological liars at Verditek deceive investors even with this pathetic attempt to ramp the shares ahead of a placing.


BREAKING: Verditek – now tell us the truth about Optimeyes, time to come clean Tory Toff Lord Willetts

2020-10-01 12:11:32

Spotting misleading and deceptive RNS statements made by technically insolvent AIM listed ramp Verditek (VDTK) is like shooting fish in a barrel. The skill is in finding one that is demonstrably true! Given that the company needs a placing pronto to avoid bankruptcy, AIM Regulation and the FCA should be investigating all its statements made via RNS to establish if ANY are true, given how many pre-placing lies I have unearthed. So here is yet another one… Optimeyes


Verditek – Tiny Oz order as I correspond with one of its lunatic shareholders, a case study in Winnifrith's first law of investment

2020-09-24 14:41:30

Of course the first order Verditek (VDTK) won in the land of high culture was way back in 2019. But that turned out to be a fake “take or pay” contract designed to ramp the shares ahead of three bailout placings. Having finally fessed that it made that one up, Verditek has today announced a real order from down under. But it is tiny and will do sod all to ease the financial woes of a company that is technically insolvent, having negative net current assets and which is still burning cash.


Verditek – now at the slow death or quick death point...

2020-09-23 16:40:10

I am told that you can get borrow in Verditek (VDTK) and that the stock is now shortable. For the avoidance of doubt I am not short, I never am since it would allow folks who own shares in frauds, engage in frauds or promote or enable them to accuse me as having a vested interest and thus compromise my status as an investigative journalist. But if you are into shorting here’s why this company is now at the slow death or quick death point...


Tory Party Bulletin Board Moron of the week: Verditek mug natch. PS I am not a banana

2020-09-22 09:13:48

I have now proved beyond any doubt that technically insolvent Verditek (VDTK) has misled investors grotesquely during five separate fund raises. If AIM Regulation was not staffed by such poltroons, the shares would already be suspended. They may still be. So what does that say for the integrity of the man at the helm, the chairman Tory Toff Lord David Willetts?


Letter to FCA & AIM Regulation: Verditek- call for share suspension and review of every RNS issued by these proven serial liars

2020-09-20 17:23:24

Yesterday in a detailed bearcast I demonstrated industrial scale deception of investors in Verditek (VDTK) and of potential investors in a bond offering by the same company as massively price sensitive, and adverse, information was withheld in 2018.  It is now clear that the company, chaired by Tory Toff Lord David Willetts, has misled or actively lied to investors on a serial basis every year since its August 2017 IPO and on a broad range of price sensitive matters. I have proved 5 major cases of lying. But there may well be more and I have thus written to regulators urging them to suspend trading in the shares until they can independently verify the accuracy or otherwise of all statements made by this company. I wrote:


Verditek issues more confetti but for what PR exactly? Meanwhile what has happened at BBR?

2020-09-10 14:10:57

Can there be any more red flags fluttering over laughable AIM Company Verditek (VDTK)? You bet there are. First up is today's news of a share issuance for PR services. What PR you say? Exactly.


Interims from Verditek show the lying mothers are more or less insolvent

2020-09-07 13:24:50

Welcome Lord David Willetts to the world of turd polishing on the AIM casino and your first interim results at Verditek (VDTK). It's time for some more share ramping and lying to investors as you guys really do need a bailout placing asap.


Drowning in a sea of red flags, a company built on lies – Verditek

2020-08-31 12:47:10

Just how many red flags do you need? Because at this AIM listed company, there are more than you’d see on the annual May Day parade through my old stomping ground of Clerkenwell. Let’s list the Verditek (VDTK) red flags:


Letter to FCA & AIM Regulation: Verditek just how many lies told?

2020-08-16 10:38:42

Enough is enough. Two weeks ago, an article HERE forced Verditek (VDTK) to admit on August 12 2020 that the two big contract wins announced in 2019 had not gone through but it had raised money without telling investors of these massive setbacks. On Friday, I showed that it had actively misled investors ahead of placings in September 2019 and March 2020. Enough is enough. How many more lies have been told? I have written to the FCA & AIM Regulation asking for the shares to be suspended pending a full investigation into the company, its directors, and Nomad WH Ireland which, at best, has been asleep at the wheel.


ANOTHER DEVASTATING WINNLEAKS EXPOSE: Verditek LIES to investors AGAIN in a 2nd placing - this time it's Project Star

2020-08-14 12:14:13

Earlier today, I published an email showing that Verditek (VDTK) had, via its brokers, lied to investors as it tried to raise money in a placing in February/March 2020. Okay, to lie to investors once is bad enough but what if it has lied before? Might that suggest that there may be more lies out there and that the shares should be suspended while the FCA and the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation have a serious butchers? Well, as it happens, thanks to Winnileaks, I can now show below that Verditek also lied to investors as it raised money in late September 2019. Oops, two placings, two sets of lying... I sense a pattern here.


DEVASTATING WINNILEAKS EXPOSE: Verditek and Project Black – proof of active lying to investors ahead of a placing

2020-08-14 09:00:45

Last week I exposed how Verditek (VDTK) had misled investors in three placings by NOT informing them that previously announced contracts had not gone ahead and on Tuesday the company fessed up to this. But misleading by omission ahead of a placing is one thing. Actively lying is far worse and thanks to Winnileaks I can now demonstrate that Verditek has done that not once but at least twice.


BREAKING: Verditek confirms Tom Winnifrith expose – it DID mislead investors twice in 2019!

2020-08-12 12:58:59

Verditek (VDTK) has been forced by my expose of last week to admit today that it DID mislead investors with regards to 2019 contract wins and revenues...


Letter to FCA & AIM Regulation: Suspend Verditek PLC NOW before more securities fraud committed

2020-08-09 07:50:04

Maybe having a Tory grandee, Lord Willetts, as your chairman means that you are allowed to commit securities fraud with impunity on the AIM Casino? As I exposed yesterday HERE, that is most certainly what Verditek (VDTK) has been up to. Given that it is currently technically insolvent and its shares are being ramped on an industrial scale by disgraced tipster Mike Walters of 3DM, Polly Peck, Minmet, etc etc infamy and others, another placing must be imminent. I have today written to the Chocolate Teapots at the FCA and the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation asking it to try to, for once, stop fraud.


EXPOSE: Another AIM scandal involving a Tory grandee, Verditek – why is this not slam dunk securities fraud?

2020-08-08 08:58:56

Shares in Verditek (VDTK) have been pumped up to 18p, capitalising it at £52 million, on the back of supposed order wins. But this company is a serial liar in that regard. Its finances are shot so why does anyone buy into the nonsense?
