Thanks to the hapless clowns at Northland losing (oops I meant surrendering) their license there are still a stack of stocks which will see their shares suspended on February 1 and booted off the casino for good on March 4 if they cannot find a replacement. The ten at risk are:
If AIM gave out awards for achieving little and issuing billions of shares, then Tanzanian coal miner Edenville Energy (EDL) would be high up the list to receive one!
Having seen a cracking 23 dodgy RNSs released on the last trading day before Christmas as bad news was buried in last-minute Christmas shopping and even then a few were slipped out hours after the markets closed, the totally unbiased adjudication of the Global Shorting Conspiracy has reviewed the releases on the last trading day of 2016 for attempts at burying bad news. You were asked how many there would be, and we have a winner. But first, a round-up of the missives concerned.
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.
Edenville Energy (EDL) has long been a favourite of small private investors, but ultimately I have to wonder whether it will actually ever get to a stage where its projects come to fruition.
Happy Wedding Anniversary said the email from Memery Crystal lawyers to African Potash (AFPO). Actually it did not, I made that up. Just like African Potash makes up its press releases ahead of a placing. I shall reply to Potash in a "formal" manner tomorrow. Elsewhere I look at Cloudtag (CTAG), Edenville (EDL), Zincox (ZOX), Gable (GAH) and Mayan (MYN), the former Northcote (NTC).
Shares in Edenville Energy (EDL) have been marked lower today at 0.02p on news that the company plans a capital re-organisation such that the nominal value of its shares goes from 0.2p to 0.0002p. In itself this means nothing but the clear implication is that the confetti blizzard of share issuances will accelerate.
Why are shares in TrakM8 (TRAK) plunging. This is not a "Winni-wobble." The company needs to make a statement either officially or via its spokesman on earth, Paul Scott. Elsewhere, after a visit to Mistra which was amazing, I look at Gulf Keystone (GKP), death merely postponed, Avanti Communications (AVN ) - ditto - Edenville Energy (EDL) ditto and Cyan (CYAN) where I explain who is shafting Joe Retail: brokers and management.
A “Project Update” from Edenville Energy (EDL); “Preliminary earth works have now commenced at the Mkomolo deposit site”. Hmmm – sounds like the type of announcement before discounted placing ahoy, and looking at the financials here… surprise, surprise!
If a I yawn a bit it is because the Mrs was away last night so I stayed up late watching a great Dan Snow programme about the vikings. I digress. I start with Gary Newman and Waz Shakoor vs Metal Tiger (MTR). Then it is on to Pathfinder Minerals (PFP), Greatland Gold (GGP) - it looks wrong to me - Bonmarche (BON), Edenville (EDL), Milamber Ventures (MLVP), Strat Aero (AERO) and once again Ascent (AST) where management are now reaping what they sowed. Oh, and we have some exciting news on www.UKInvestorshow - Ho, ho, ho. The Oakley headline is explained in the podcast.
I shall not curse West Ham by going to watch the match tonight at The Conservative Club but for Striebs and others I am aware what is happening. Instead I shall be watching the new series of Grantchester with the Mrs and Oakley and I recommend it to one and all. I look at the latest Horse Shite ramp from David "I am incapable of telling the truth" Lenigas and flag up a placing rumour at UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) and also Regency Mines (REG). I look at the Pathfinder (PFP) disaster in detail and at Driver (DRV) where the curse of Steve "shagger" Norris strikes again. Madgascar Oil (MOIL) confirms that minority shareholders will be buggered and I look at the farce at Edenville (EDL). So that is three companies operating in Bongo Bongo land where PIs have been screwed today. Then there is a detailed look at games developer Frontier (FDEV) where the valuation is a rum and coke even after today's profits warning.
It is now 48 hours without nicotine and lefty luvvie Emma Thompson attracts my ire. there is also comment on the Horse Hill ramping and Leni-maths, the tobacco smugglers at Afriag (AFRI), Fusionex (FXI), Adolf Hitler's business cards, Iofina (IOF), Petroceltic (PCI), Environmental Recycling (ENRT), Edenville (EDL), Tertiary (TYM), Totally (TLY) and Igas (IGAS).
It is short podcast time as I am having issued sending material back to the UK. The Albanians did not turn up today so the olive harvest is delayed by 24 hours. It may be delayed again if I have to head to Athens on Global Shorting Conspiracy business. Things are starting to get interesting as I mention briefly and this is NOT Globo (GBO). Elsewhere I cover Edenville (EDL), Gulf Keystone (GKP), Sweet Group (CSG), Atlantic Coal (ATC), Iofina (IOF) and African Potash (AFPO). Warning: this podcast contains bad language and rather too many references to Britain's most talented chanteuse Ms Cheryl Cole.

On January 17th, Edenville Energy (EDL) caused outrage among its shareholders when it placed £1.4million at 0.07p. This was a greater than 50% discount and illustrates exactly the problem, which faces cash strapped junior would-be miners. Without sufficient backing, the “assets” these companies own are, to all intents and purpose, worthless. Today, Edenville has hardly helped any attempts at making a value case for this stock, as it placed again. This time it raised £250,000 at 0.06p. Further dilution, for such a small amount and at this awful price further calls into question Edenville’s viability. Oh, but hang on moment, I heard its shareholders cry, what about the Expression of Interest the company signed only nine days ago? Well...
