In today's podcast I look at two business fauilures and the lessons we can all learn from them. In many ways Bulb is a bigger scandal than FTX and it has already cost the UK taxpayer £6.5 billion.

The Gresham lesson about bonuses for Sarah Willingham and Nightcap

The corporate governance at Nightcap (NGHT) is - as I have exposed on this website so many times - dreadful. That rather surprises me as the non executive chairman Gareth Edwards is not a bad old stick despite having been a partner at the accursed law firm Pinsent Masons.  One issue that the cash strapped company, now right up against the limit with its banks, and with its rollout programme on hold, is bonuses. I urge Gareth to look at events at Gresham (GHE), which - to make it easy for him - are detailed in full below.

Shanta Gold – a recovery BUY!

Shanta Gold (SHG) has recently announced that “after further engagement and having taken advice from its financial advisors, the board has concluded that there is no merit in continuing discussions with Shandong and Chaarat, which both parties have accepted”. That ended current bid talks and sees the shares currently down to a 10.5p offer price. However, the company added that it is now “focused on optimising and growing its quality portfolio to continue to deliver long-term sustainable returns for shareholders with a number of value catalysts in train for 2023”. We consider that they can re-spark these shares back to the 16p+ of last year.

CloudTag: Life in the old fraud yet or just a new fraud and possibly money laundering?

Cloudtag (CTAG) was a bulletin board darling which we exposed as a bankrupt fraud on this website numerous times HERE. Eventually the company's Nomad, Liam Murray at Cairn Financial, arrived at the same conclusion and gave his notice of resignation.  However the company then raised £975,000 via broker Novum without telling Novum or anyone else about that resignation. Murray thus resigned with immediate effect and Novum unwound the placing while, with no other Nomad prepared to take on this toxic client, it was booted off the AIM sewer in March 2017.

Most Shares Should Be Shunned Pro Tem, but There's Still a Jolly Chance of Making Dosh from Emerging Markets.

Hello Share Gatherers. Next year, the UK economy will do the worst of all the G7 economies. So says the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development. The OECD expects the UK's economy to shrink by 0.4% in 2023 to be followed by minute growth of just 0.2% a year later. Meanwhile, there is strength in many emerging countries.

Shield Therapeutics – tick tock …36 days to tits up alley ( or is it just 21 days?)

On 1 August 2022, having failed to raise $30 million in an equity markets fundraise - as I warmed here to hoots of derision from BBMs sitting in their underpants in their parent's basement), Shield Therapeutics (STX) took out a $10 million loan from 13% shareholder AOP Orphan International AG. Now the clock is ticking on that loan.
