When I last looked at the ongoing shenanigans at AIM-listed Block Energy (BLOE), the rebels had lost their first attempt to get their own way at the requisitioned EGM failed to support their attempts to remove Block Energy’s Chairman. As the second requisitioned EGM approached (next Wednesday), the rebels, whose behaviour in light of their track record is questionable as I revealed here, attempted to move the goalposts by offering to pay for the requisitioned forensic investigation into the company’s affairs. Now the sitting board had come out fighting: grab your beer and popcorn, and read on…..

Not satisfied with having lost the first requisitioned EGM, where shareholders in AIM-listed Block Energy (BLOE) were invited to sack the chairman and replace him with the one remaining NED, the rebels have another requisitioned EGM for shareholders to consider appointing one of the big four accounting firms to conduct a full forensic. This will, of course, be expensive – and having lost round one the rebels have made a seemingly helpful suggestion.

The first of two EGM’s requisitioned by rebels at AIM-listed Block Energy (BLOE) saw the Chairman, Philip Dimmock, see off resolutions to give him the boot and appoint independent NED Charles Valceschini in his place. In the meantime, the company has appointed a new NED in the form of Jeremy Asher, current chairman of fellow Casino listed Tower Resources (TRP).

Shares in AIM-listed Block Energy (BLOE) are up this morning by 7.5% on no news, although yesterday the company announced a series of nil-cost options being issued to its directors and employees in lieu of salary. In this mad market, nothing surprises me and the dilution is apparently a good thing as far as shareholders are concerned! Meanwhile, more bombs have been dropped by the rebels looking to oust current chairman Philip Dimmock in favour of the last independent NED still standing, Mr Charles Valceschini and commission an independent forensic report into the affairs of the company. Oh dear…..

A group calling itself the Block Energy Support Group has emerged, representing around 20% of the currently issued shares in AIM-listed Block Energy (BLOE). Unlike some shareholder support groups, such as the Quindell one, this support group is not for the support of current management and already two EGMs – one to remove the chairman and the other to commission a forensic report into the affairs of the company – have been called. One would imagine that such aggressive action might suggest that somebody knows something and via the support group’s website the bombs have started to drop.

Last September some rebel shareholders were so concerned as to what was going on at AIM-listed Block Energy (BLOE) that there were rumours of an imminent requisition of a sack-the-board EGM. That time the rebels were placated and by the end of the month all was apparently well. Or was it: for now there is a sack-the-chairman EGM Requisition on the table and this morning a further EGM was requisitioned to commission an independent forensic investigation into the company’s affairs by one of the “big four” accountants. Best order in double portions of beer and popcorn – this could get very entertaining.

Oh dear, oh dear: things seem to be going from bad to worse at David Sefton’s former (and apparently still currently) stamping ground Iconic Labs (ICON). Last night at 5.35pm, 15% shareholder OTT Holdings released a statement announcing it has requested an EGM with a view to changing three (out of four) of the board as the major shareholder considers share price performance, lack of financing, management and board performance and now a lawsuit for breaching a financing agreement. Oh…..and toxic Dave Sefton gets a mention in despatches as well. It’s beer and popcorn time!

Chris Heminway has called for an EGM to boot off one member of the board of AIM-listed Inspirit and see himself and one other elected instead. In response to the onslaught, Inspirit has suddenly sprung into action, announcing two deals which saw the shares roof it.

Suspicions that the shareholder register of AIM-listed Inspirit Energy (INSP) were not correct were confirmed yesterday lunchtime (the new no-one-is-watching o’clock) when the company admitted that CEO and Chairman John Gunn’s total interest was not 28% as previously claimed on November 25 last year, but 25.4%. Needless to say, the original announcement was signed off by Inspirit’s hapless Nomad, Roland “fatty” Cornish – the worst Nomad in town.

AIM-listed boiler-room Inspirit Energy (INSP) has been a long-term non-performer on the Casino ever since the reversal of its technology (having failed as a private company) was reversed into Kleenair Systems in 2013. Almost anyone who has had the misfortune of investing here will be nursing very heavy losses, and the company seems to have little or nothing to show for the last 7 years as an AIM Casino chip. But now the company is under attack from 6.5% holder Chris Heminway, who launched a scathing attack late on Monday via the RNS system.
