Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Paul Atherley do you really think this EU fake news will help you pull young women, even in Islington?
For the Rosslyn Data Technologies (RDT)/porno man reference see HERE. Meanwhile, a “Directorate Change” announcement from the company today states that this “leading global big data technology company, today announces that Roger Bullen, CEO, is stepping down” but that “he leaves the group in a good position for the next stage of sales-led growth under Paul Watts”. Hmmm...
Although still down from above 7p as recently as November, shares in Rosslyn Data Technologies (RDT) are currently up approaching 25%, towards 6p, on the back of a “Half-year Report” and “Contract Win”…
“Rosslyn Data Technologies plc (AIM: RDT), a leading global big data technology company, announces that it has won two large contracts”. Sounds interesting if these contracts are “large” for a “leading global” big data company…
“Rosslyn Data Technologies plc (AIM: RDT), a leading global big data technology company, is pleased to issue the following trading statement in advance of its results announcement for the year ended 30 April 2019, which is scheduled to be released in September”…
Oh for the days when Rosslyn Data was run by that colourful chap who seemed embarrassed about his career in pornography. These days a boring bean counter is at the helm but the company is still a dog serving up a double profits warning topped with a meagre dose of jam tomorrow today. The balance sheet is a total wreck and surely another bailout placing is needed.
Roger Lawson of ShareSoc bought a few shares in Rosslyn Data (RDT) as a recovery punt in a placing. That he was able to get EIS relief added to the attraction although I still worry he will lose money on this company which I have highlighted many times (HERE) as a howling dog even by the standards of AIM. Lawson attended the AGM yesterday and reports back on what appears to have been a curate's egg in his mind. I think he is being well generous.
It's congratulations to a longtime poster, first-time winner whose contributions have been almost exclusively on ShareProphets.
The old-bailout-disguised-as-acquisition switcheroo demonstates that Rosslyn Data (RDT) has what it takes to be a Bulletin Board Moron of the Week sponsor.
Tom Winnifrith has already covered the hidden bailout placing aspects of the Integritie deal announced by Rosslyn Data (RDT) last week (HERE) but I thought it worth elaborating on the deal (which looks like a real dog) and asking the simple question: why haven’t you told your shareholders about the related-party aspects?
Floated at 33p by Lagos Securities, or Cenkos as it prefers to be known, on the back of a prospectus that forgot to mention critical damaging information, Rosslyn Data (RDT) has been a serial disappointer and was clearly set to run out of cash this year, despite numerous protestations from its discredited management that this was not the case. And so today, the oldest trick in the book - a bailout placing dressed up as an acquisition. The price of the bailout, just 4.5p.
I am beginning to miss Charles Clark the former CEO of Rosslyn Data Technologies ( RDT), the man who had forgoitten about his career in pornography. His successor Roger Bullen is long on the yadda, yadda, yadda in today's trading statement but misses out on what we really want to know. That is a bad sign.
osslyn Data Technology (RDT) shares continue to slide and now trade at only 9.75p - valuing this company at just £7.4 million. It listed two and a half years ago after Cenkos signed off on a misleading prospectus at 33p and it has been downhill ever since. The company insists it will not run out of cash before it his breakeven. We shall see.
AIM Dog with fleas Rosslyn Data (RDT) has announced a wholesale reshuffle of its boardroom which saddens me greatly as it now means that there is one less AIM CEO who had a career in porn. Farewell Charles Clark for you will be missed.
It is interesting that as far as Rosslyn Data shares have been concerned over the recent past, they must have qualified for some kind of award for consistency on the stock market in terms of the price action.
Another week goes by and another pitifully small director share purchase is announced by Rosslyn Data Technologies (RDT). Its thick as pigshit and thoroughtly odius piece of excrement PR man Tim Blythe might advise the company that this will fool mug punters into buying. But I sense folks have wised up to this. If Hugh Cox reaally believed in Rosslyn he'd be filling his boots. Small scale purchases are clearly just an attempt to ramp the shares ahead pf a placing. We are not spoofed. Small scale share purchases are a red flag. But I promiosed more bad news for Rosslyn, so here goes.
Two after-hours no-one-is-watching o’clock RNSs caught my eye from Friday evening last week. Both look to me to be clear-cut sell signals.
My big gripes with Charles Clark of AIM Cesspit listed dog Rosslyn Data (RDT) are that its IPO prospectus was misleading and that it is rapidly running out of cash. I really do not care about its CEO Charles Clark's brief stint in the porn industry bit he seems jolly keen not to discuss it and perhaps he needs a bit of a reminder of how exciting his life could have been.
Shares raced ahead almost across the board on Friday. Even dogs like Rosslyn Data (RDT) managed to eek out some gains but its stock still languishes at 14.25p despite a raft of meaningless huff and puff releases and well down on its IPO price of 33p a year ago. And so I have a small question for the heavily loss making firm.
When is Rosslyn Data Technologies (RDT) going to serve up a trading statement ‘fessing up to the speed of decline in its UK business, the cashburn and the urgent need to raise bailout capital this year? And when will it ‘fess up to investors about how the IPO prospectus of last year was misleading – a matter I have raised with the FCA – as to the impact of departure of key personnel before flotation? You want another example of that? Here you go.
I have noted before how Rosslyn Data Technologies (RDT) seems to have been economical with les actualities in its IPO document, how it is rapidly running out of cash and how kee it must be to protect the share price ahead of an inevitable bailout fundraise. And that brings it to its huff & puff RNS of 23 February 2015 – “Rosslyn Data Technologies signs major partnership in the US higher education sector”.
It is my contention that when Rosslyn Data Technologies (RDT) - formerly Rosslyn Analytics - floated on the AIM Casino it was fully aware that its ex sales director (James Courtis-Pond) and CTO (Steve Hayward) were already in direct competition with it at Anydata Solutions and failed to disclose this in the prospectus. I have written to the FCA about this HERE demanding an enquiry.
Rosslyn Data Technologies (RDT) floated on the AIM casino on 29th April 2014 having raised £10 million at 33p. Cenkos acted as Nomad and broker and will have earned almost £700,000 from this company. The shares are now trading at just 13.375p –this has been a disastrous IPO for those who backed it and I have today written to the FCA asking it to investigate Cenkos and Rosslyn to see if the prospectus for the IPO was misleading.
Yesterday I recorded a Bearcast special on Rosslyn Data Technologies (RDT) HERE – I have received a number of emails suggesting that my bearishness is bang on the money. It now seems obvious to me that the company was effectively bust pre IPO, that its core UK market is not growing and that a cash call is looming. But it gets worse.
This is a single company podcast special -a detailed look at Rosslyn Data. Its shares are sliding today and I would strongly advise against bottom fishing for a number of good reasons.
