I read in today’s press that ‘British Telecom (BT.A) has picked the former chief executive of Royal Mail (RMG) and ITV (ITV) to be its new chairman…Adam Crozier is expected to resign as chairman of the online fashion retailer Asos (ASC) to focus on the role, although he is tipped to stay on as chairman of Whitbread (WTB)’. How exciting!
At 5.45 PM yesterday Denzil Jenkins of the AIM Regulation team called Nomad ZAI. No-one answered so he left a message on its answerphone informing the Nomad that it was to lose its Nomad status at 6 PM that day and that its clients would be contracted at that time with the news. Jenkins followed this up with an email saying that ZAI could appeal but when you are going to lose all your clients what is the point? In fact the events of yesterday are just part of a story which shows AIM in a terrible light as a secretive and oppressive body covering its own failings with scapegoating and showing no regard for natural justice or any sense of fairness.
