I have written once again to the FCA, as the regulator of the Standard List, urging it to act against Canadian Overseas Petroleum (COPL) as it struggles to get its 20p-a-share bailout placing away, despite misleading investors. My letter is below:
In response to some dynamite exposes on Shareprophets about Canadian Overseas Petroleum Limited (COPL), the company released a bizarre RNS in which the sole executive, Arthur Millholland, dismissed his critics, mainly Tom Winnifrith, as snake oil salesmen and expressed “renewed confidence” about the future. Pots and kettles spring to mind here when Millholland’s track record is taken into consideration.
Last week, I wrote several articles about how Canadian Overseas Petroleum (COPL) misled investors and was facing a cash crisis. Snake oil salesman, CEO Arthur Millholland of Oilexco infamy, responded with a denial, claiming I did not know what I was talking about and was motivated by nefarious aims of self-enrichment. Well guess fucking what?
Yes, for the second time this week, I have written to the regulators of the Standard List, that is to say, the FCA, asking for an investigation into Canadian Overseas Petroleum (COPL), the almost insolvent POS run by snake oil salesman Arthur Millholland of Oilexco infamy. The letter is below.
Adding to the grotesquely deceptive and misleading RNS of April 1, and the failure to inform investors of numerous covenant breaches, I now expose another $8 million PORKY PIE from the Snake Oil salesmen at Canadian Overseas Petroleum (COPL). This should shock even the FCA into action.
This is both hilarious and libellous. What Canadian (COPL) has said about me is untrue and defamatory, as its limp-dick advisors at PR Yellow Jersey know full well. However, it is what Canadian fails (again) to say that is critical. It is still deceiving its investors massively, and, thus, the smart money will use the spike it has created to add to its shorts.
Following shocking exposes TODAY and YESTERDAY, clearly demonstrating that Standard Listed Canadian Overseas Petroleum (COPL) has deceived and misled investors, I have written to the FCA suggesting an immediate share suspension, pending a cleansing RNS statement and a full disciplinary enquiry. The letter is below.
Yesterday, I exposed how Standard-Listed Canadian Overseas Petroleum (COPL) misled and deceived investors, by hiding company-threatening matters from them in a final results RNS. But this is only the tip of the deception iceberg. Canadian has been deceiving its shareholders for months and months. So, this scandal gets far worse, as I explain below. Surely the FCA has to act….
The purpose of an RNS is to inform investors, not to deceive and mislead them. But that is exactly what Canadian Overseas Petroleum (COPL) did last Friday, when it published results for calendar 2021. On the RNS, we were treated to an abridged version, which read positively. I can imagine why folks rushed to buy. But…
