Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - I am with my father-in-law on one point but we are dinosaurs

In today’s podcast I look once again at ADVFN (AFN) and the chances of a bid, I look at Wildcat (WCAT) and Tintra (TNT), en passant, as indicators of market madness  and finally I have a detailed look at Mercantile Ports & Logistics (MPL), a company that should have been booted of the AIM Casino a long time ago.

Lyin' Chris Cleverly’s Block Commodities booted off Aquis Lobster pot – but what is rule 5.2 which it breached?

As African Potash (AFPO) this company was booted off the AIM Casino after its Nomad quid when discovering – thanks to me – that the company had told grotesque lies to get placings away, it had committed fraud. Chris Cleverley, cousin of leading Tory James who is no longer claiming he wants to buy West Ham, then took Potash to the Aquis lobster pot, changed its name to Block Commodities (BLCC) and carried on telling lies to investors for which the company was censured and fined, after I pointed this out to regulators. Could it get any worse? You bet.

EXPOSE: How can AIM allow the IPO of Central Copper Resources and hope to be taken seriously?

On 14 July, a company called Central Copper Resources announced its intention to list on the AIM Sewer. On 22 July, a schedule one announcement came out stating that the IPO was expected ”early August”. In light of what I reveal below, I would argue that if AIM Regulation is to have any credibility at all it must stop this IPO now.

Catenae – Another day, another deal “not expected to generate substantial revenues"

AIM-listed Catenae Innovation (CTEA) – fresh from its fundraise announced Wednesday which added £1 million to its coffers at 2p per share – has announced a new pilot agreement for its Covid-bandwagon testing platform with an unnamed Fortune 500 American professional services and construction company. But if the BBMs think this is exciting, we are again warned that the deal is not expected to generate substantial revenues. Or, indeed, any revenues at all.

Sabien – Truell-y, Madly, Deeply, this Peterhouse special stinks

Sabien (SNT) has been around for years developing boilers that were going to revolutionise the world. Whatever. Floated at 52p per share in 2006, its shares now trade at 0.1p after more catastrophic news. Losses to date are in excess of £5 million but at least it has been providing a steady source of coke and hookers cash for London’s Nomads, brokers, PR fluffies et al. Today came a real shocker.

Ariana – CEO selling millions of shares but all is not quite what it seems

It was announced this morning that Kerim Sener, CEO of AIM-listed Turkish gold-producer Ariana Resources (AAU) has exercised 7 million options at 1.55p and sold five million shares at 5.9p, a further 1.5 million at 5.75p and his wife has sold a further 2.4 million at 5.75p. He subsequently bought 92,000 into his SIPP but that is a fair amount of selling. Should we follow the lead?

Five Slam-Dunk sells for 2020 – September update as market madness continues

Filthy Forty Walcom: So Long - and thanks for all the fish

Catenae – placing confirmed at 2p but this is still the most overvalued AIM stock

Having warned the market on Thursday that a placing was on the way at a substantial discount, the placing duly arrived yesterday morning at two minutes to ten – 37.5 million bits of confetti at 2p to raise £703,000 gross and see off £47,000 worth of liabilities. In some ways one has to congratulate the Broker on a job well done, given that the shares closed Thursday night at 2.65p that amounts to a discount of just 24.5% - a big improvement on the last effort at a monster 77% discount. So where does that leave the company?

OUZO TIME! URU Metals – As predicted, fundraise and a stunning death spiral announced after-hours as company misleads. TIMBER.......

What a complete and total POS. As I pointed out (yet again) yesterday, AIM-listed URU Metals (URU) was technically insolvent and for no apparent reason the shares had marched up to 200p, overvaluing this outfit by…..er….200p. Needless to say, the directors had a duty to raise money and at no-one-is-watching o’clock last night (4.56pm) we learnt that they had. But the company misleads over the massive 57.5% discount – and that is a best case scenario – and the company is STILL technically insolvent.

Trafalgar Property: you’ve got to be having a laugh with this!

Filthy Forty Walcom - Fat Lady put off for another week but surely suspension is long overdue

The Wagnerian opera of the eventual demise of ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty play Walcom (WALG) continues, as we learnt today that the bailout rescue loan from its CEO is still not in the bank, but apparently more orders and perhaps more importantly measures from the Shanghai government in response to the corona virus mean that the company will survive until a week on Monday in the continuing absence of the CEO’s largesse.

Neil Woodford Dog RM2 to be fork-lifted off the AIM Casino at last

There is no doubt in my mind that disgraced Neil Woodford’s revolutionary pallet company RM2 (RM2) should never have got anywhere near the AIM Casino and through keep-the-lights-on refinancings (largely paid for by Neil Woodford with other peoples’ money) it should have been removed a long time ago. But Neil needed the listing as he tried (and failed) to keep within his 10% proportion of investments  unlisted limit so despite protestations from within, the AIM listing continued. Well, this morning it is all over bar the shouting.

SHOCKING: London Stock Exchange: Fraud on AIM is nothing to do with us, nothing we can ( or will) do about it!

The AIM casino has hosted the London stockmarket's biggest fraud for almost 40 years (Quindell) and a raft of smaller frauds in recent years. One might almost say that fraud is endemic. Yet, in a consultation paper published this week, the London Stock Exchange (LSE) has insisted that it is not within the remit of its own AIM Regulation department to tackle fraud or indeed do anything about it. This shows a complete contempt for investors - we bank the fees, you bank the losses.

Strip out a handful of massive winners like ASOS and Domino's Pizza and the AIM Index is into double digit losses. But are private investors who have born the brunt of this wealth destruction now getting revenge with spate of attempted boardroom purges? Yes and No.

Oh dear. They say that no news is good news and so conversely it was beginning to seem that every time AIM-listed CloudTag (CTAG) opened its mouth via the RNS system these days it was bad news. What a come-down from the good old days when it could announce anything it liked and the market loved it. Perhaps the company’s fortunes will change with this morning’s ramptastic RNS, although the reaction seems a tad muted already. Watching this unfold I wonder if my plan for instant wealth as a death spiral financier might hit a snag.

CloudTag – my plan for great riches

So AIM-listed CloudTag (CTAG) has announced the conversion of a further £600,000 of its death spiral funding facility with L1. That is on top of the previous £700,000 announced  on Monday of last week. Running the ShareProphets abacus over the numbers, it looks very tight as to whether the company will get anywhere near drawing Tranche 2 of the funding package. But studying it all makes me realise there is a fabulous path to richness awaiting me.

AIM-China Grand Group, for whom the AIM Rule 41 bell tolls (unless Nomad ZAI walks first)

AIM-China incubator play Grand Group (GIPO) only joined the Casino in January 2015, too late to make our ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty index. This is most unfortunate, for the credentials on offer are impeccable – and now, it seems, we could be just over five weeks from a one-way trip to the AIM Execution chamber, courtesy of AIM Rule 41 (if, that is, the Oxymorons bother to enforce the rule this time). This is as on 30 December the mandatory delisting following a six-month suspension kicks in unless the company gets its accounts to December 2015 out.

In a quite astonishing statement released yesterday, the non-exec Chairman of AIM death-row inhabitant Galasys (GLS), Mr Kim Seng Teh, has given his account of an unbelievable systemic failure on the AIM Casino to control the behaviour of the board of a member of the world’s most successful growth market.

I wouldn’t like to second-guess who is the villain in the boardroom and who is the innocent party, but I am sure of one thing: heads must roll in the oversight department.

Galasys – EGM called… oh dear, is it chairman versus CEO? And a correction….

We have already noted that AIM-listed Galasys (GLS) appears to be minus a company secretary, minus a registered office, minus a Nomad, minus a Broker and minus a NED or two since the board declared war upon itself last year. Now it seems that two disgruntled shareholders have decided enough is enough, but the implications as to what has been going on are dreadful.

Galasys – yet another rat deserts the s(t)inking ship as the company tries to pretend that it still has WH Ireland as Nomad.

AIM-listed China and South East Asia play Galasys (GLS) has seen a stunning procession out of the door of late. One NED last December, the Company Secretary (not yet replaced) and Registered Office (not yet replaced) last week, another NED twelve days ago, the Nomad and Broker last week, and now yet another NED today. Surely there is no way back for the company now – yet the company’s RNS today was apparently signed off by WHI as Nomad and Broker!

We may have thought we had seen the Dream Team on ShareProphets, but this one goes straight to the top of the pile.

There are now just 17 of the original forty remaining, of which one is currently suspended. This is an incredible indictment of AIM, and the recent history of LED is the sour cherry on the rancid icing on the mouldy cake.

AIM has its part to play as the country prepares for Brexit. I’m not holding my breath.

There is no doubt that AIM is an incredible cash-raising machine. According to the most recent AIM Factsheet (to June 2016), published by the London Stock Exchange (HERE) £41 billion has been raised in new issues, and a further £56 billion in further issues of shares – a whopping total of £97 billion. Over the 21-year life of the Casino that is a very impressive average of £4.6 billion a year.

Brexit Banged the Banks - But Here Are Reasons Why They Could Bounce Back

Hello Share Scrummers. In my humble opinion, British banks are among the biggest bargains in Shareland at the mo. Though I was in two minds about foisting this opinion on you, as banks have a marvellous talent for letting us down. They’ve been doing that steadily since the big crashes of 2007 and 8. But I really do think the shares have been oversold since the result of the Brexit vote. They fell a heck of a lot. Without their failure, the Footsie which eventually rocketed on the decision to leave the EU, would have been near the elusive 7000 level by now.

China fraud LED International Holdings and AIM Rule 41: when a rule isn’t a rule at all

AIM Rule 41 says: “The Exchange will cancel the admission of AIM securities where these have been suspended from trading for six months”. Yet LED has still not been given the order of the boot by AIM Regulation. I dropped our friendly Oxymorons a line….

Apparently they are pencilled in for release in a couple of weeks' time but there has to be a question of whether Rurelec shares will ever trade again.

But now we have what looks to be the final nail in the coffin as the company has admitted that it can’t find a Nomad which will represent it and it is to be booted off the Casino as from this morning - a nice early morning execution.

The London Stock Exchange appears to be covertly cleaning up AIM’s act. Is now the time to push for reform on behalf of ordinary investors?

Has the London Stock Exchange finally woken up to the fact its AIM Augean Stables is in dire need of a very late spring clean? Over recent months a few clues have started to emerge that the LSE is covertly trying to regain control of its growth market and repair its battered reputation. The latest hint that something is afoot came via this morning’s piece in the Financial Times, with news that the LSE is going to tighten up the rules concerning cash shells. If this is an indicator of a wider initiative to sort out AIM it is something to celebrate. However if the LSE genuinely wants to restore confidence in the “world’s most successful growth market” it is also going to have to take some actions publicly, no matter how difficult they might be.

Tern finally clears up the warrant mystery – and says sorry

Following a series of questions HERE, HERE and HERE AIM-listed Tern plc (TERN) has finally clarified how it managed to allow the holder of warrants exercisable at 4.6p to exercise them at 0.02p instead. I’ve lost count of the clarifications and restatements Tern has issued so far this year, but at least we can start to draw a line under this latest one – although yesterday’s RNS would suggest that Tern’s FY13 and FY14 accounts and results RNSs, and the RNS of 31 July 2013 (which announced the issue of the warrant instrument) were all just plain wrong.

The Tern warrant mystery – an Open Letter to AIM Regulation

Following on from THIS ARTICLE from earlier today, I have written to AIM Regulation and asked them to step in. This is an important matter, because shareholders in AIM-listed Tern plc have just seen more than 1% of their company near-enough handed out for almost nothing, by way of an unexplained warrant exercise which they would have been unaware of. This is not an acceptable situation because the implication is that ownership rights on AIM can become arbitrary.

Gate Ventures forth to Infinity

Following previous comments (HERE) wondering who was running the show for the ex-AIM Casino entity that is Gate Ventures plc (GATE) things have become a little clearer. And a little murkier too. Gate has continued to release news through the RNS system, almost as if oblivious to the fact that it is no longer on the London Stock Exchange’s junior market. Some might see this as a good thing as its shareholders can still find out what is going on, albeit through a series of RNS Reach (ie non-regulatory) missives. The less charitable view might be that potential investors are given the impression that Gate still retains a proper listing. Whatever.

ShareProphets Filthy Forty – Global Market Group heads for AIM ejection as Nomad Grant Thornton resigns with immediate effect

AIM-China poster-boy Global Market Group (GMC) looks set to become the next member of the ShareProphets Filthy Forty to be given the order of the boot, unless it can find itself a new Nomad by 21 September 2015. This Cayman Islands registered company joined AIM in June 2012 at £1.30 a share, when it raised £9.7 million through a Placing, to join the Casino with a market capitalisation of around £127 million. The shares fell almost immediately to just over 80p.
