Inspirit – Time for more Beer and Popcorn in the Boiler Room?

Published 144 days ago

I’m not sure what is going on at AIM-listed Inspirit Energy (INSP) but I notice that a new holder has appeared in the form of Monecor (London) Limited, which now holds 10.3% of the equity. Monecor is better known as ETX – a spreadbetting firm.

Inspirit Energy – Yet Another Companies House Failing from the Boiler Room

Published 209 days ago

Oh dear, oh dear – I would have thought that the board of AIM-listed John Gunn enterprise (or lack of it) Inspirit Energy Holdings (INSP) would have learnt by its previous errors. But alas, no. For five of the last six years, Inspirit has missed the deadline for filing its Confirmation Statement or Annual Return……and guess what?!

Octagonal interims & another fail for the worst FD on AIM and the worst Nomad in stab City

Published 286 days ago

Just a few hours before voting to delist Octagonal (OCT) from the AIM Cesspit earlier this week, shareholders in the company were presented with unaudited interim results for the six months ended 30 September 2020. With AIM’s worst FD, Nilesh Jagatia, in charge and London’s worst Nomad, Roland “fatty” Cornish, signing off, you will not be shocked that there were a raft of howling schoolboy errors.

Octagonal – the innumeracy of Nilesh Jagatia exposed and can it fund its promises?

Published 290 days ago

Today’s RNS from Octagonal (OCTshows clearly that it tells lies and is thus run by a liar in John Gunn.  However, it also suggests that its FD, AIM’s worst FD Nilesh Jagatia, cannot do basic maths and that its promises of a dividend and share buy backs are reckless in the extreme. Ahead of a GM vote on delisting, how can it be allowed to make such pledges?

KERBOOM: Octagonal admits it told a massive lie via RNS and then tells another – how is boss John Gunn allowed to continue on AIM?

Published 290 days ago

Not only have Octagonal (OCT) and its boss John Gunn both been charged by the SEC with breaking Securities laws but both are now shown to have lied to investors in a massive way via RNS. Today they admit to that crime and then lie again. How on earth AIM Regulation think Gunn is fit to run not one but two AIM listed companies, Octagonal and Inspirit (INSP), defies belief.

Inspirit – Have you forgotten anything recently, and what about those GIS Debentures?

Published 291 days ago

With all the law enforcement hassles over at Octagonal plc (OCT), which shares the Chairman, CEO and Finance Director in the same roles as at AIM-listed Inspirit Energy Holdings (INSP) one might imagine that their attentions are rather taken up at Octagonal. After all, being charged by the SEC in the USA is a serious matter which could have devastating consequences. So I wonder if anything has been forgotten…….such as this:

Before we get to the most read articles, I’d like to point out my tip of the year 2021. Before you dismiss it as the ravings of a scoffer, I’d like to point out my 2020 Share Tip of the Year was Flutter (FLTR). You could have been in at 9,300p and it’s 15,110p today.  My 2017 UK Investor Show tip was an eight bagger (It was Versarien (VRS), still doubled if you held it to today), and my 2018 UK Investor Show tip, Red Rock Resources (RRR), also doubled if you held it to today. And as long as you didn’t count IOMart (IOM), which I also recommended last year, you would have been quids in.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: This is utter insanity, use it as a chance to exit your dogs

Published 303 days ago

In today’s podcast I look at Powerhouse Energy (PHE), Supply@ME Capital (SYME), Pires Investments (PIRI) and Chris Akers, MyHealthChecked (MHC), Inspirit (INSP), Octagonal (OCT), and Remote Monitored Systems (RMS).

Inspirit – Pressure builds as a non-entity of a statement is released. SELL!!!

Published 303 days ago

At 1.25pm AIM-listed POS Inspirit Energy (INSP) issued a statement relating to fellow AIM-listed Octagonal, where its CEO and Chairman John Gunn, and Finance Director Nilesh Jagatia also reside in the same roles,  whose subsidiary,  Global Investment Strategy is Inspirit’s sole broker – the very same subsidiary which has been charged by the SEC – alongside John Gunn, for aiding and abetting – with violating US broker-dealer registration provisions of the Securities Exchange Act 1934. Given that Jagatia and Gunn make up two thirds of the board of Inspirit, there clearly is a problem here!

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: BBMs delude themselves on bad news, case study Octagonal & the SEC plus should I jump onboard Malcolm's green shite bandwagon?

Published 304 days ago

I start with the issue of how we all delude ourselves about how bad bad news can be. My case study is Octagonal (OCT) and the scale of any likely punishment by the SEC. Then I ask whether we should all jump on board Malcolm Stacey’s green shite bandwagon and abandon any “dirty” old world plays? You see it is not as simple as the old guy claims. Do you remember when he was telling us all to buy Radio stocks back in 1927?

Red Flags upon Red Flags at Night: Inspirit Energy

Published 304 days ago

The pressure must surely be mounting on Roland “Fatty” Cornish as he tucks into his fourth helping of spotted dick with extra lashings of custard this Sunday lunchtime. The shambles at AIM-listed Octagonal (OCT) where he presides as (London’s worst) Nomad is a shocker, as detailed by Tom Winnifrith HERE. But fellow AIM-listed Inspirit Energy (INSP) – same Nomad, same finance director, same head honcho in the form of John Gunn – is surely at risk of suspension this coming week, and it released diabolical FY results to June at 11.22 am on Christmas Eve.   

Octagonal - the tiny auditor big red flag

Published 304 days ago

Facing SEC charges which will destroy its core business and should wipe out its balance sheet, John Gunn’s Octagonal (OCT) is toast. But were there warning signs? Is the Pope a frigging Catholic? This site warned you time and time again about this company and also Gunn’s other AIM hound Inspirit (INSP) which is surely also a zero now.

BREAKING: Inspirit shares MUST be suspended as SEC now files charges against Octagonal and John Gunn suggesting massive RNS lie

Published 305 days ago

On Christmas Eve Octagonal PLC (OCT) and John Gunn issued an RNS which is, with the document below, indicates to be a monstrous lie. The Nomad who signed it off, Mr Roland “fatty” Cornish is – as I showed HERE and HERE  – massively implicated in this mess and should be struck off by AIM Regulation asap. But back to the Christmas Eve RNS. It looks to be a massive lie, surely now shares in Gunn’s other AIM listed dog, Inspirit (INSP) must be suspended too.

The Great ShareProphets Christmas Red Flags Sweepstakes – The Result

Published 306 days ago

Unfortunately Boris Johnson is still celebrating his Brexit success, before sharing what is in the document with anyone else. What could possibly go wrong!? So he has asked me to help out with the final adjudication of this year’s ShareProphets Christmas Red Flags sweepstakes  – with, as ever, absolutely no prize at all beyond the immeasurable kudos involved. So here is my list of RNS Red Flags on Christmas Eve.

Tom Winnifrith Christmas Bearcast: This is the scandal that MUST sink London's worst Nomad Roland "Fatty" Cornish

Published 307 days ago

This is all to do with events at Octagonal (OCTdescribed earlier. When did Fatty know? The answer is that thanks to a whistleblower, it was aeons ago. But it is what he did about it that is the real scandal and why AIM Regulation must drum him out of the City PDQ if it is to maintain any sort of pretence that AIM is a credible market. PS. Merry Christmas to one and all, even Fatty.

Christmas Eve BOMBSHELL: Octagonal is toast as SEC looking to bust company and boss John Gunn, FCA assisting

Published 307 days ago

At 8 AM on Christmas Eve, shares in Octagonal (OCT) were suspended on the AIM Casino. At 1.04 PM, with the market closed and everybody switching off their screens, came the bombshell. Assisted by the FCA, the SEC has charged Octagonal’s main subsidiary, Global Investment Strategy UK Ltd. (GIS), for clearing and settling billions of dollars of U.S. securities transactions without registering as a broker-dealer in violation of the federal securities laws. The SEC also charged John William Gunn, its founder and principal, with aiding and abetting those violations. Kerboom. You cannot say that I have not warned you for years that Gunn – who also runs uber dog Inspirit (INSP) – was a prize rotter.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Another Advent question I bet 95% of the Under 30s would get wrong

Published 315 days ago

I start with Joshua’s Advent calendar, Then it is onto tales of boardroom greed and naughtiness at Octagonal (OCT) which is to leave the AIM Cesspit. Based on what I reveal today, where do you think its cash will go?  Then it is onto Verditek (VDTK), Bidstack (BIDS) and a second company run by a former Tory MP, Powerhouse Energy (PHE) where the man in charge is sleazy Tim Yeo. 

BREAKING: Octagonal – another departure from the AIM casino and more egg on face for Britain’s most useless FD Nilesh Jagatia

Published 315 days ago

You cannot say that I have not warned you all so many times that Octagonal (OCT) would end in tears. Corporate Governance and related party deals involving boss John Gunn were shocking and Nilesh Jagatia is, without doubt, the worst FD on the AIM casino. Today came news of a delisting and the shares have collapsed by almost 70% to just 0.7p. I do hope that the Bulletin Board Morons who knew so much better than useless old Tom Winnifrith, were well lubed up.

News from the Boiler Room – Inspirit releases interims: how long ‘til lights out, and whose cash is it anyway?

Published 576 days ago

AIM-listed serial dog Inspirit Energy (INSP) released its interims yesterday at 2.33pm and it is same old, same old: the bills keep on coming in but where's the progress on its boiler? And when will the cash run out? – and why was its broker - a subsidiary of housemate Octagonal plc - holding such a proportion of its cash?...

Norwegian E24 goes after Chris Rynning (formerly of F40 Origo) - part 2: the company credit card

Published 898 days ago

This gets worse and worse for Chris Rynning, the former boss of ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty play Origo Partners (OPP). Having discussed how a billion Kroner disappeared to tax-havens under this self-styled China expert, today E24 looks at the company credit card. If you thought Nilesh Jagatia of Teathers (TEA), Insprit (INSP) and Octagonal (OCT) was, ahem, generous (to himself), this appears to take the biscuit.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Why Julie Meyer was the odd one out & the mystery of Toople and what it did not say

Published 931 days ago

I start by talking you through yesterday's Odd One Out contest explaining the schoolboy error made by Nigel Somerville and others. I look at the Autolus news in relation to Woodford Patient Capital Trust (WPCT) where as a loyal shareholder I shall be attending the May 15 AGM in Oxford with a few questions for Neil "nomates" Woodford. I flag up a shocking little episode at Clear Leisure (CLP) which should make you worry about Octagonal (OCT) and Inspirit (INSP) given that their FD is disgraced Niliesh Jagatia  then discuss Management Resource Solutions (MRS) and finally, in detail, Toople (TOOP). Tomorrow I really will read out a Woodlarks heros roll call. Please join that list ahead of then HERE 

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Neil Woodford disgusts me ( as a capitalist) & vindicated on Anglo African Oil & Gas

Published 1023 days ago

In today's podcast I start with the shocking revelations about Neil Woodford's greed and reward for failure. Folks like Nomates are more of a threat to capitalism than Lenin. I am vindicated on Anglo African Oil & Gas (AAOG) and await apologies from the Bulletin Board Morons. I discuss the whole affair including the shameless behaviuour of FinnCap (FCAP). Truly FinnCrap is a moral sewer. I discuss First Derivatives (FDP), offer up my nap buy for Q1 2019 and have some questions that require an urgent answer from John Gunn's Octagonal (OCT) 

Octagonal – questions for the company, Roland “Fatty” Cornish and the FCA?

Published 1152 days ago

As Roland “Fatty” Cornish settles down to his Sunday Lunch, and considers what to do about the growing scandal at AIM-listed Andalas Energy (ADL) – a company to which he is Nomad – I have something else for him to chew on as he munches through his double helping of spotted dick with extra lashings of custard. It concerns another company to which he is Nomad, namely AIM-listed Octagonal (OCT). I gather he is well aware of what follows, but has he done anything?

Octagonal – those GIS numbers: more misses than hits

Published 1190 days ago

I said I would take a look at the annual accounts to March 2018 of Global Investment Strategy UK Ltd (GIS) which AIM-listed Octagonal (OCT) owns. After all, Octagonal announced by RNS in April that GIS expects to report EBITDA of £3.01 million, a record for the Group, on sales of £6.53 million for the year ended 31 March 2018 and that cash in the bank or equivalents more than £5m as at 31 March 2018. Hmm – let’s see how those statements worked out.

Octagonal – results for GIS released, so where are the parent accounts?

Published 1192 days ago

Tom Winnifrith pointed to some previous anomalies at AIM-listed Octagonal (OCT) where John Gunn (of AIM-listed dog Inspirit Energy) and Nilesh Jagatia (of Teathers infamy) reside. Today, I had an email drop into my inbox…..it is all very odd.

Octagonal – CEO Gunn in an EFH-style deal? Is there trouble in the boiler room?

Published 1408 days ago

Yesterday AIM-listed Octagonal (OCT) released a Director’s Dealings RNS. Nothing unusual about that, you might think, but the text was announcing that CEO John Gunn was taking a loan secured against his shares in the company. Is he doing an Equities First type of deal?

Octagonal - First gazette for Company Strike off - is there an RNS due perhaps?

Published 1571 days ago

Any company employing disgraced Nilesh Jagathia of Teathers infamy is a good bet either to go tits up or to get into a spot of bother for not filing documents properly at Companies House. And that brings us to Octagonal (OCT) PLC where clueless Nilesh does the books.

Inspirit Bailout Placing - tell me there was no market abuse here: look at the chart

Published 1639 days ago

Look at the daily chart below. Tell me there was no insider dealing or market abuse going on here. It is that of Inspirit Energy (INSP). And then at 2.10 PM we finally had two announcements.

Inspirit Energy – half-year results claim “adequate resources”. Really?...

Published 1662 days ago

Having featured in the ‘New Year bury bad news stakes’ and with questions having been raised about CFO Nilesh Jagatia, I note shares in Inspirit Energy (INSP) remain in the doldrums following half-year results announced on 31st March. I also note the announcement was made at 9.49am. An attempt to miss the usual 7am RNS scrutiny?...

An Open letter to John Gunn at Inspirit and Octagonal - you MUST suspend or fire Nilesh Jagatia NOW!

Published 1709 days ago

Nilesh Jagatia the former FD at now delisted AIM bad boy Teathers Financial (TEA) is now enmeshed in controvery not only over Teather's serial ability to file accounts on time but over how shareholder's cash was used not only on entertainment involving semi clad young ladies but also for apparently personal spending by Nilesh. One hopes that by now the Old Bill and HMRC have been asked to have a butcher's. Amazingly Mr Jagatia remains as FD at two other AIM Companies both, as it happens, run by John Gunn: Inspirit (INSP) and Octagonal (OCT). I have now written to John Gunn.

An Open letter to Ben Turney - why have you not called in the police at Teathers Financial

Published 1710 days ago

Yesterday I revealed a series of 74 "interesting" transactions on the Teathers Financial (TEA) company credit card and some curious payments on the Teathers pre-payment card belonging to Nilesh Jagatia the company's former FD. There is now a very real suspicion that Teather's poor shareholders were paying for Jagatia's domestic shopping at his local Sainsbury's in South Woodford and that he was making withdrawals from the company's account for personal use. I have thus written to the new CEO flip flop Ben Turney who, of course arrived in the coup that saw Jagatia fired. The letter is below.

BREAKING: Teathers Financial shocker: Nilesh Jagatia - Show Me The Money!

Published 1711 days ago

The way that shareholders' cash was pissed away on corporate jollies & semi clad young ladies by the former board of Teathers Financial (TEA) has already been documented fully here. But documents have now fallen into my possession, here at Winnileaks, which ask even bigger questions about FD Nilesh Jagatia who is pro tem, still FD at AIM-listed Inspirit (INSP) and Octagonal (OCT). After this bombshell I wonder for how long.

Octagonal – a nice core business in GIS hindered by conflicts of interest and duff legacy investments, the Inspirit dog with fleas

Northland Capital Partners – relying on Bank of Beaufort?

Continuing our wanderings through the accounts of those who promote and look after companies listed on the Casino, we turn here to the FY (to Mar 16) accounts of Northland Capital Partners – Nomad to such fine enterprises such as AIM-listed Edenville Energy (EDL) and the now executed Eastbridge Investments (EBIV), Broker to AIM-listed Octagonal (OCT) and introducers of  Vast Resources (VAST) to the fine fellows at Bracknor. A truly magnificent contribution to life on the Casino I’m sure we all agree.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Loads of Pornography and Welshmen shagging sheep + Sepura and 1 down 1 to go with Phil Edmonds

Published 1870 days ago

Pornography, naked women, sheep shagging Taffs. Actually there is nothing of the sort in this bearcast but I mention it just to annoy Kay Larsen,a prudish and stupid PR spinner for Sepura (SEPU). Kay is a really silly cow and we have crossed swords before so I rub her nose in it with her client whose statement today is a scandal. The rozzers really need to have a butchers. Then I cover Modern Water (MWG), Falcon Oil & Gas (FOG) and a trio of uber dogs with uber fleas: Blur (BLUR), Inspirit (INSP) and related party Octagonal (OCT). Then I look at Phil Edmonds creation Sable (SBLM) which is now a month away from AIM casino death. Its sister company is the fraud African Potash (AFPO) and I cover this matter in detail. It looks as if the Mrs will give birth tomorrow so if I take a break and you miss me either listen to the archive HERE or google "tourettes audio" and find something similar. Warning: this podcast contains some very bad language especially for the prude Kay Larsen.

Octagonal Accounts - the dealings with Inspirit, how cosy: what a small world

Published 1894 days ago

We know from an Inspirit Energy Holdings (INSP) announcement on 17 May 2016 that Octagonal (OCT) remains a major shareholder in Inspirit and that John Gunn is a director of both Inspirit and also Octagonal. This really is a cosy old relationship between the two AIM POS companies.

Octagonal - another comedy classic from Fatty Cornish and another win for the Sheriff

Published 1928 days ago

Earlier today I flagged up that John Gunn run POS enterprise Octagonal (OCT) had, in April, promised results in June but had not only not published its numbers (never a good sign) but had also parted company with its auditor last month but not told anyone about it. In direct response to MY ARTICLE HERE, Octagonal fished its corpulent and useless Nomad Roland "Fatty" Cornish out of his four course luncheon to issue a statement. It is another comedy classic from Fatty. Boy he does know how to tell em.

Octagonal plc – where are the results for the year ended 31 March 2016?

If so you are going to get even more pissed off as I have obtained and publish below a lawyers letter which exposes wholesale fraud and deception at their last outfit Media Corp (MDC).

Octagonal – another reminder why John Gunn’s piggybank is uninvestable

Published 1990 days ago

I find Octagonal (OCT) such a frustrating stock as, at the heart of it, there appears to be a decent business that can throw off cash and that potentially looks undervalued using standard valuation metrics but while the CEO and major shareholder, John Gunn, continues to use its bank balance as a personal investment piggybank, I have to leave it well alone.

Can someone bring me a bottle of ouzo to dull the pain afterwards? On today's podcast I look at the Restaurant Group (RTN) and what its profits warning says about the economy and consumer behaviour. I look at David Lenigas associated shite Octagonal (OCT) and its rum and coke statement, Nighthawk (HAWK), London Capital (LCG), Igas (IGAS) and make a general observation about oil prices and oil stocks.

The Real story of the Birth of the Boiler Room at Inspirit Energy

Annual accounts and other statements indicate that John Gunn has a very significant holding in AIM Casino listed Inspirit Energy (INSP) which some private investors probably take comfort from.

Published 2124 days ago

The ex-Lenigas stock that is AIM-listed Inspirit Energy (INSP) issued its full year results to 20 June 2015 on the day of its reporting deadline of New Year's Eve. Just the timing of the RNS during no-one-is-watching o'clock week is a Red Flag in itself. But quite how it has taken six months to collate its numbers when there are no sales is a mystery to me - that is another Red Flag, but there are plenty more. For a start, there is a change of auditor but a glaring error and a few other matters leave me reaching for the bargepole even before looking at the balance sheet.

Tom Winnifrith's share tips of the year Number 4 - Sell Fast Forward Innovations at 17p

Published 2128 days ago

A reader posted on our comments section: "Ive also just bought into FFWD. Tom why can't you tip this for 2016 instead of repeat tips on OPTI and NIPT?" Hmmm well I am sure that Optiobiotix shares will race ahead ( 100p + within weeks after the next deal is announced) and that Premaitha will announce new contracts and that it is passed the inflexion point of cash breakeven soon and that its shares will head to 30p+. That is why I tip them as buys. You want me to tip shares that will go up ,right? But your wish is my command and so I will also tip FastForward Innovations. But as a sell at 17p.

The David Lenigas creation Octagonal breaks AIM rules but does anyone care any more?

Published 2140 days ago

Jabba The Hutt is no longer on the board but he ramps shares in Octagonal (OCT) on twitter and his pal from Inspirit (INSP), John Gunn, runs the show. Piss poor interims were out yesterday but being Jabba related they contained a clear breach of AIM Rules - just what was it trying to hide?

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast 18 December: Pensioner mugger WH Ireland time to face Karma

Published 2141 days ago

I am still on the prescription pain killers as you may be able to guess. And I am still pondering what to get the Mrs for Christmas - any ideas please post away in the comments section. I end with a question for Jabba The Hutt and Afriag (AFRI): tell me David Lenigas what is happening on January 20 2016? In the podcast I cover Infrastrata (INFA), disappointing news from Armadale Capital (ACP), Inspirit (INSP), Octagonal (OCT) - two John Gunn /Lenigas creations - Asian Citrus (ACHL), eServGlobal (ESG), Impact Holdings (IHUK) and ask the question could WH Ireland (WHI) - full dossier on its sins HERE -  run out of free cash soon? The answer after today is that the pensioner muggers could well do so. Karma.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast 27 November - Christopher Booker to Jabba The Hutt

Published 2162 days ago

Once again sincere apologies to Jabba The Hutt groupies for failing to pick up David Lenigas on anything in yesterday's podcast. Before you all get cold turkey, I have a few observations about Octagonal (OCT) nonsense today.I start with a look at React Energy (REAC) a trainwreck involved in green energy shite. I suggest that anyone who believes in this hocus pocus nonsense should read "The Real Global Warming Disaster" by uncle Chris.  Then it is onto Anglesey Mining (ATM), Golden Saint Resources (GSR), Slater & Gordon (TOAST) and Northern Petroleum (NOP).  See you all tomorrow at Gold & Bears in London.

Octagonal & Big Dave’s car crash Lenigas Cuba – please explain Mr The Hutt

Published 2164 days ago

I have already demonstrated that the “investments” made by AIM listed Octagonal (OCT) – director Da vid Lenigas – are not worth anything like their stated value and that balance sheet support is illusory. But at least there was some cash. Or there was.

Octagonal – another David Lenigas AIM car crash – looking at its investments number 2

Published 2174 days ago

Anyone who was mad enough to back the Octagonal (OCT) placing at 2p this June is already 57.5% down. I guess by the standards of most David Lenigas placings of late that has to be viewed as a roaring success. I first touched on Octagonal as a car crash underway HERE and yesterday discussed its first rum and coke balance sheet entry HERE. But it gets worse (for Dave) and better for me.

Octagonal – another David Lenigas AIM car crash – looking at its investments Number 1

Published 2175 days ago

Those mug punters who backed the 2p  £1.7 million placing by David Lenigas AIM POS Octagonal (OCT) in June as it snapped up GIS, a firm owned by Big Dave’s pal John Gunn, have done better than most folks backing the fat Aussie share ramper. The shares are now 0.85p to sell, so in five months they have only lost 57.5%. Compared to other Lenigas car crashes that is not too bad.  Now let’s start a series looking at what they actually bought.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast 10 November - More Lenigas material & remember I had a hippie childhood

Published 2179 days ago

Having been warned off by the thuggish PR to David Lenigas (HERE) I have asked AIM Regulation to get the low down on Big Dave's trades or otherwise in LGO Energy (see HERE). And then what next? Aha Octagonal (OCT), an AIM listed company where the aforementioned Mr David Lenigas is involved - needless to say its shares have slumped. Then it is onto Nanoco (NANO) and Wandisco (WAND) as well as Lonmin (LMI). Finally I commend to you last night's BBC programme by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall on waste and the supermarkets. Can Malcolm Stacey reallysay the are ethical investments? I commend you all to watch it. Remember I grew up in a hippie self-sufficent family so maybe I am biased but I was horrified.

V2: Lenigas Cuba fund raising bombs disastrously – prepare for IPO bloodbath Monday

Published 2188 days ago

Back in July as David Lenigas raised £4.2 million at 2p for Lenigas Cuba, mug punters like market abuser Chris Oil were told a Standard Listing within 4-6 weeks would raise £5-10 million at 5p. Oh dear, it seems that 13 weeks later the ISDX IPO tomorrow will have seen just £200,000 raised at 5p. Big Dave has bombed! Now wait for the car crash as the maths are dire.
