The curse of Beaufort strikes again - Gavin Burnell & Andrew Gutmann have left the Novum Building

Published 285 days ago

I have highlighted before the curious way that Gavin Burnell of Globo (GBO) infamy was working at Novum Securities even though the FCA had not re-authorised him to conduct investment business following the demise of Beaufort Securities. All good things must come to an end.

Champion value destroyers Audioboom issue another dire warning dressed up in bullshit- bankruptcy looms

Published 430 days ago

Oh dear, oh dear. At what point will those who have backed this crock of shit decide that it is not worth chucking any more cash down this black hole. I know that free speech denying boss Rob Proctor and his relatives on the payroll need jobs but but this company is just a disaster zone. As he wakes up for a meeting with Karma today, Proctor tries to polish the turd but today’s lack of profits/almost out of cash warning is his worst yet. And that takes some doing given his track record of abject operational failure and of consistent value destruction 

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: the mounting Andalas Badger scandal, a real test case for the AIM Casino

Published 463 days ago

Today I explained HERE the mounting Badger scandal at cash-strapped Andalas (ADL) as it gears up for a bailout placing. In this podcast I explain why all involved should be concerned that they are not party to Securities fraud, notably Nomad Beaumont Cornish and broker Novum Securities - home to scallywag Gavin Burnell of Globo (GBO) infamy. This is a real test case for the integrity of the AIM Casino and I explain why.

Is Gavin Burnell the most expensive teaboy in the City – what exactly does he do at Novum?

Prompted by a reader I wonder exactly what Gavin Burnell of Globo infamy is doing round at Novum Securities these days?

Andalas – The greed of scum City advisers laid bare as another post ramp bailout placing announced

Published 515 days ago

That insolvent Andalas Energy (ADL) is undertaking a placing is no shock. It is insolvent with negative net current assets of  at least £400,000 but thanks to some fairly sordid share ramping it has managed to raise a gross £1 million at 0.02p. The ramping of shares in this company with worthless assets is pretty unpleasant but what is laid bare in the news is the sheer greed of City advisers notably brokers Novum – of Jon Belliss and Gavin “I made £750k from Globo - Burnell infamy – and Optiva.

Haydale: “Strong Commercial Progress”? No - Red Flags ahoy, it’s a pre-placing ramp.

Published 538 days ago

AIM-listed Haydale (HAYD) has offered the market an RNS this morning describing “Strong Commercial Progress”. Bearing in mind the profit warning of last week, and the inevitability of another bailout placing one wonders if this marks the appearance of pastures new in the distance, or whether it is just a pre-placing ramp.

Gavin Burnell of Globo infamy – what does he do at Novum and does the FCA know?

Published 542 days ago

I noted yesterday that Gavin Burnell of Globo infamy was one of the team at Novum Securities which raised £4.5 million for Audioboom (BOOM) at 3p – a placing which is already well underwater. How do I know? Because his name is one of three at Novum on the RNS. But here is a funny thing: Burnell is not approved by the FCA to conduct investment business! As you can see below, it reckons he is “inactive.”. I took this up with Novum boss Hugh McAllister…

Magnolia Petroleum - it even fucks up its admission that it is fucked

Published 550 days ago

Set to delist from AIM, drowning in debt, burning cash, run by the poltroon Rita Whittingham with her love of a bloated pay cheque for herself and family members, Magnolia Petroleum (MAGP) was already the laughing stock of the AIM Casino.  But today it took its incompetence to a new level.  At 1.43 PM it announced...

Magnolia Shocker - to delist from the AIM casino - why is the board not being sacked?

Published 565 days ago

I have repeatedly warned against investing in Gavin Burnell of Globo infamy creation Magnolia Petroleum (MAGP). Drowning in debt, burning cash and paying vast sums to CEO Rita Whittingham and her ghastly relatives on the payroll this is a dog. Today the company says that it is going to try and sell some of its (crap) assets and to save £100,000 it will delist from AIM. It could save far more by firing its deadwood staff. The shares have plunged 65% and are now just 0.6p to sell. But you should sell. SP Angel guru, the City's No 1 oil analyst Zac "The Knife" Phillips sums up this farce perfectly.

DEADLINE MIDNIGHT SUNDAY Gavin Burnell of Globo infamy - next job after Beaufort prize competition

Published 644 days ago

Following the sad demise of Beaufort Securities yesterday one chap looking for a new job is Gavin Burnell, the man who brought the fraud Globo to market and made a killing as one of its NEDS, the man who brought you uber dog Magnolia and whose CV is a resume of shareholder value destruction. Natch he was an obvious candidate to work in corporate broking at a place like Belfort but where will shamed Burnell go next? You can win a bottle of champagne in our new prize contest.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - the real import of the major scoops we have tomorrow showing lying and worse at 2 AIM companies

Published 729 days ago

Tomorrow we will run stories on 2 AIM listed companies showing evidence of wholesale lying and worse. I will show why even a small lie matters and why the real scandal is that in case 2 this is a leopard who is re-offending and the weedy spineless poltroons at AIM Regulation knew of his character before allowing him scope to re-offend. I also question why Gavin Burnell of Globo infamy is allowed to remain as a fox inside the regulatory chicken-coop while investigations into that fraud continue.

Missed out on the Globo fraud fear not Gavin Burnell is backing another wannabe AIM "winner"

Published 744 days ago

Some folks have no shame. I talk not of serial promoter of dogs and frauds Gavin Burnell but of AIM Regulation who are allowing another Burnell backed "winner" to list. The high point of Gavin's career was of course Globo which he brought to AIM via an RTO, where he was a very well paid NED, made a killing selling shares and which was then exposed as a fraud HERE and went bust within 72 hours. Of course Gavin did nothing wrong. The CV gets better

Telit - predictably dire bullshit earnings warning amid vague statements

Published 801 days ago

Yosi Fait the proven insider dealer who runs AIM Casino posterboy Telit (TCM) because Sam Smith's morally bankrupt Nomad FinnCap does not care if its client firms are run by criminals, has served up a bullshit heavy (bogus) profits warning.

Invited to become an AIM Casino NED - I'm flattered but I'd rather eat my own toes

Published 876 days ago

I will not name the company but suffice to say its management are greedy bastards who have not delivered. Its assets are shite and its balance sheet a trainwreck. The company and all associated with it, especially the paid shrills, merit a one way trip to the glue factory. With those clues I guess that narrows the list of possible candidates down to about 60% of the stocks on the Casino.

Paternoster Resources - the Elephant in the valuation room

Published 882 days ago

Yesterday I explained at length HERE why I would not touch Paternoster Resources (PRS) shares with a bargepole - they look cheap in relation to asset value but are not. Indeed I think that the real realisable NAV today is far lower than the last, March 31, stated NAV. Let us just look at an unlisted investment as a case study - Elephant Oil.

Mayan Energy the dog has a new trick but it makes no sense at all - coke & hookers better value

Lies, smears & blackmail: Loathsome Rita tries to cling on at Magnolia Petroleum

Published 900 days ago

Less than lovely Rita Whittingham is doing her utmost to cling onto the gravy train for her and her relatives which is Magnolia Petroleum (MAGP). You will remember that there are moves to oust the proven failure and install one director from Nostra Terra (NTOG), Evan Ainsworth, and an independent director, Zac "The Knife" Phillips, the City's No 1 oil analyst. This would not be a change of control as Rita asserts since The Knife is independent, but a much needed boardroom clearout. Now to the defence document which is worthy of Jeffrey Archer. It is just low grade fiction.

Magnolia Petroleum Part 1:-Back Zac "The Knife" Phillips and Sack Rita Whittingham

Published 904 days ago

And so the battle lines are drawn at Magnolia Petroleum (MAGP), the dash guzzling worthless AIM POS founded by Gavin Burnell of Globo infamy. On the one hand there is an overpaid incumbent board led by less than lovely Rita Whittingham and backed by an overpaid army of crony capitalist advisers. On the other side are Even Ainsworth from Nostra Terra (NTOG) and Zac "The Knife" Philips, the City's top oil analyst. Magnolia has accepted that a GM request to outs less than lovely Rita and appoint Ainsorth and The Knife is valid. So what is the voting maths?

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: back to Gavin Burnell at Globo & Onzima - not every AIM disaster is fraud - most are not!

So few companies are total frauds. Burnell creation Globo (GBO) was but Onzima (ONZ) is not. So what happens if you lose money on this company or another which goes horribly wrong?

Shamed Globo Entrepreneur Gavin Burnell drives coach & horses through AIM rules again - Onzima suspended

Published 1148 days ago

Oh dear, Oh Dear, Gavin Burnell is in another spot of bother. Gavin, who is now working as a senior broker at bucket shop Beaufort Securities, brought the fraud Globo (GBO) to the market and made vast sums as a well paid NED and via share sales while the CEO stole all the cash. After that no firm with any credibility or self respect would hire him but clearly he fits in really well round at Belfort. But now there is another trainwreck on his watch - Onzima Ventures (ONZ) shares in which have been suspended today.

Photo Story: Crime does pay if you are an AIM CEO - check out where Costis Papadimitrakopoulos from Globo is hanging out?

Published 1188 days ago

You remember Globo (GBO) don't you? It was the AIM listed Greek company based down the road in Athens from the InternetQ (INTQ) Norfolk which claimed to be profitable and drowning in cash. Except it was not. In the days before we exposed it HERE and got its shares suspended and the firm put into administration, CEO Costis Papadimitrakopoulos sold millions of pounds worth of Globo shares knowing what was to emerge as snot gobbler Dan McCrum of the FT had tipped him off without actually having the balls to break the story. So Costis is clearly a crook but crime does not pay does it? Well it seems that for AIM CEOs like Costis it does.

Wondering where the cash Costis stole from Globo went? Gavin Burnell might know a thing or two

Published 1326 days ago

In case the rozzers want to know where Costis, Konstantinos Papadimitrakopoulos, hid the cash he liberated from the fraud Globo (GBO) both directly and via share sales in the days running up to its collapse, perhaps they should ask disgraced Globo NED and the man who listed it on AIM Gavin Burnell. For it seems that Gavin had dealings with the criminal bubble outside of Globo.

Onzima Ventures & Nigel Theobald: its chicken and egg

Published 1327 days ago

Onzima Ventures (ONZ) the "investment company " run by Globo disgraced Gavin Burnell spends most of its efforts doing spivvy short term trades in small AIM casino stocks - its only real long term investment is a 49% stake in a private company N4 Pharma Ltd. Is that the chicken or the egg?

Gavin Burnell Creation Sula (minus 97%), another keep the lights on placing - death merely postponed

Published 1368 days ago

I am sure that Gavin Burnell of Globo infamy has done okay from bringing this piece of shit to AIM but one suspects that other shareholders in the crappy mining no-hoper that is Sula Iron & Gold (SULA) have fared rather less well. And so today we see that via the kind offices of JubCap (broker to Chris Oil and other members of the elite) we have another keep the lights on placing.

Is Onzima Ventures breaching it's investing policy?

Published 1371 days ago

I’ve been noticing a lot of chatter on Twitter about a small AIM investing company called Onzima Ventures (ONZ), so I decided to take a closer look to see if all the fuss was justified!

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast 22 Feb: A dying cat, a moronic follower of Lenigas & Gavin Burnell's kiss of death

Published 1385 days ago

A lot of references today to yesterday's podcast covering cats and Andrew Monk's puzzles (see HERE). Today I answer the money puzzles and I am afraid there is very bad cat news indeed. So I really dont care about shares and it was not a good day for a moronic disciple of David Lenigas with 9 followers to have a go at me on twitter. As it happens I have a few things to say about Jabba who I will be nailing for good within six weeks. I also look at Nomad resignations, Auhua (ACE), DQ Entertainment (DQE), Milestone (MSG), Litebulb (LBB) and then at Magnolia (MAGP) and the wider career of Gavin Burnell.

Magnolia Petroleum - just how much did Gavin Burnell of Globo infamy make from this POS?

Published 1385 days ago

Last week Magnolia Petroleum (MAGP) raised enough cash to keep the lights on for a couple of months. This POS could not generate cash at $100 oil so it is not if but when it goes bust and the odds are that it will be well before June. This POS should never have been listed by the brains behind the listing was Gavin Burnell, the financier who also brought you - and cashed in on big time - the fraud Globo (GBO).

Glenwick - Ramptastic bollocks that stinks

Every single Bulletin Board and twitter ramper seems to have a field day with AIM listed Glenwick (GWIK) over the past few weeks - it is the rampttastic cash shell of the moment. This stinks in oh so many ways and why can't these folks do basic maths?

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast 18 November - Globo shoot the Neds, Chris Oil Disaster looming and New World

Published 1481 days ago

I am asked to be nice to Globo (GBO) non exec Gavin Burnell. I am afraid that I cannot be because with reward ( and Gavin had made more than £100,000 a year as a Globo NED if one includes share sales) comes risk. For AIM to work he needs now to face risk as I explain. Then it is onto New World Oil & Gas (NEW) and why some folks are setting themselves up to lose money (again). Finally more bad news for market abuser Chris Oil regarding his latest car crash of an IPO, Mkango Resources

Globo – Next victim Hellenic Capital on ISDX

Published 1504 days ago

Oh dear it looks like there is another victim of the Globo (GBO) fraud. ISDX listed investment company Hellenic Capital. It was floated by blond bombshell Gavin Burnell the City slicker who floated Israeli Aquisitor on AIM and then reversed into it the Globo fraud.  Gavin is still on the board of both Globo and Hellenic Capital. And so until today was….

ShareProphets RNS Translation Service: Ultima Networks – Placing, Disposal, Restructuring

Published 1535 days ago

As predicted HERE in the wake of after-hours interims from the company on Wednesday, shareholders in AIM cesspit dog Ultima Networks (UTN) plc are to be treated to a placing. Gotcha. In fact it is rather more than that, as an RNS issued yesterday (mercifully, at the usual 7am) details proposals to be put to an EGM under which the business is to be disposed of into a private company and the plc restructured into an investing company – the last refuge for failed sub-scale ventures on the Casino. With the shares having closed at 0.25p on Thursday a placing at 0.7p seems somewhat generous, does it not? But then, as we all know, if it looks too good to be true…..step forward the ShareProphets RNS Translation Service to help our understanding of what is going on.

Exclusive interview with Matt Lofgran and his foray in Bénin with Elephant Oil

Published 1575 days ago

Elephant Oil is a privately held oil exploration company, whose managing director is Matt Lofgran of AIM-listed Nostra Terra Oil & Gas (NTOG). Elephant Oil secured the Block B onshore coastal exploration licence in Bénin, West Africa, in October 2013. It counts Red Rock Resources (RRR) and Paternoster Resources (PRS) among its cornerstone investors and could be one to watch over the coming years, as it attempts to open up a new oil producing province.

Hot Rocks Investments – ISDX Crony capitalism and a rather tardy RNS
