Inspirit Energy – another discounted keep-the-lights-on bailout from the Boiler Room

AIM-listed and technically insolvent as at Christmas Inspirit Energy Holdings (INSP) has announced yet another discounted placing this morning, raising £500,000 at a price of 0.05p per share, to keep the lights on. That, against a closing price yesterday of 0.06p yesterday means the discount was 16.7%, although for some curious reason the stock has been sliding since May 17 when it was 0.07p. But naturally enough, since this is AIM there is no chance of insider dealing.

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

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.

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.

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

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.

I suggested a portfolio of five stocks to sell – or just avoid – for 2018 during the ShareProphets tipfest. Those stocks were Tern (TERN), UK Oil and Gas (UKOG), Frontera (FRR), Telit ((TCM) and Milestone Group (MSG) – since renamed Catenae (CTEA). Tern was subsequently withdrawn when the fundamentals changed (the death spiral was terminated), and Inspirit (INSP) brought in in its place. Here is the May update.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Should I walk from Wormwood Scrubs with Brokerman Dan?

I start with two discussion held this morning, one with Lucy Wray and the other with Brokerman Dan. I end with a discussion with Lucian Miers. In between I discuss Faron Pharma (FARN), Wey Education (WEY) which - sorry Andrew Monk - is talking A grade bollocks, Inspirit (INSP) , Pathfinder Minerals (PFP), Challenger Acquistions (CHAL) and Frontera Resources (FRR).

Five Slam-Dunk shares to sell for 2018 – April update

I offered a portfolio of shares to sell for 2018 during the ShareProphets Christmas Tipfest – let’s see how it is doing (albeit a few days late). Into the original portfolio went Frontera (FRR), Milestone Group (MSG), Tern (TERN), UK Oil and Gas (UKOG) and Telit (TCM). Subsequently Milestone changed its name to Catenae (CTEA) and Tern dropped its death spiral so was replaced by Inspirit (INSP).

UPDATED/CORRECTED: Inspirit – Issue of Convertibles RNS = share capital reorganisation

We have been calling out AIM-listed Inspirit Energy Holdings (INSP) here on ShareProphets for an age: we reckoned the boiler room had no cash and its shares were below nominal. On Friday, at 2.54pm, as the market was getting ready for a nice sunny bank holiday weekend (talk about no-one-is-watching o'clock), up popped an RNS entitled “Issue of Convertible Loan Notes”. It is only after reading the whole RNS that you realise that they are proposing to split the ordinary shares of 0.1p into one ordinary share of just 0.001p and a deferred share (with no rights) of 0.099p. Oh, and incidentally, where is the Confirmation Statement on Companies House, which was due on 30 March?

Republished: Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Guess which stockmarket system flagged Quindell as one of the 11 cheapest value plays on AIM

Darren uploaded yesterday's podcast by mistake becuase he is a fucking idiot. I am considering his future and mine tonight. Here now is today's podcast. To tip Quindell before Gotham City and I started to expose it was perhaps understandable. But to single it out as a stunning value investment afterwards? Who could have been so fecking dumb? As you can see HERE it was the same system also that thought Globo was a cracking investment when some of us very publicly said it was a fraud. Which system could be so bad? Step forward Ed Croft and Stockopedia and he says that Nigel Wray invests in "sucker stocks"?. I explain why Ed's system is bound to have some horrible failures and miss a stack of big winners.  In this podcast I also look at Vitesse (VIS), Tern (TERN), Inspirit (INSP) which has a mega spoof today and Online Blockchain (OBC) where I am just a confused old dinosaur.

Inspirit – or insolvent? 2017 Interims

AIM-listed Inspirit Energy (INSP) has released its interim accounts to December 2017. We are told the company is pleased to announce its interims. What there is to be pleased about rather escapes me – the company is drowning in payables and has hardly any cash left (if any at all).

Five slam-dunk shares to sell for 2018 – March update

As we approach the end on March it is once again time to look at my portfolio of shares to sell. Of course, it is now down to four after Tern plc (TERN) ditched its death spiral so we’ll need to find a replacement for that one.

Inspirit – all’s quiet: signs of a problem?

I note that things have been very quiet of late over in the boiler room of AIM-listed Inspirit Energy (INSP). Normally that might be seen as a good thing – the company quietly getting on with making shareholders money, and not getting bogged down in ramptastic RNSs. But I wonder if there is a nasty brewing here...

The publicity hungry, failing, fund manager Neil Woodford is all over the papers. On the markets he's right ( and bearish) but when discussing his own (failing) funds he is talking utter bollocks and I explain why. Brokerman Dan (Levi) has formed a shareholder action group on Ascent Resources (AST). I discuss his case against them and make a few suggestions to the company. I comment on R4E (R4E) on the disgraceful behaviour of Pathfinder Minerals (PFP), look at RM2 (RM2) and then finally at Sabien (SNT) which look either to be on the brink of a last gasp fundraise ( at a more than 99% discount to the IPO price) or of insolvency. In the same breath I mention Inspirit (INSP), another AIM boiler room dog that should be shot.

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

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!

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.

Oh dear. Oh dear. It looks as if the cash position at John Gunn's boiler room Inspirit Energy (INSP) is getting so very tight indeed.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - Moron investors in the Cloudtag fraud feel on top of the world

I start with the woes of Deutsche Bank and Commerzbank. Then on to why dogs leave it to the last minute to report results. As such I look at Strat Aero (AERO), Vislink (VLK), IGAS (IGAS), and Wolf Minerals (WLFE). I touch on Inspirit (INSP) as it runs out of cash and is - I gather  - not paying suppliers. I then look at the two frauds: Highlands Natural Resources (HNR) and Cloudtag (CTAG) where the morons are as happy today as the Quindell (QPP)  Morons where when those shares hit 650p. How the morons laughed at the silly old bears as they told us that £20 was on the cards. But of course those backing the Cloudtag fraud insist that it will be different this time.

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.

Inspirit Energy - if it is out of cash by end October is it placing ahoy (Again)

On May 17th 2016 Inspirit Energy (INSP) raised £750,000 gross ( call it £700,000 net) at 0.5p per share but since then the news from the boiler room has been limited. The shares have tanked to just 0.29p and, worse, still, basic maths suggests that the jam tomorrow producer will be out of cash again within weeks. Is it placing ahoy? Methinks yes. Here are the maths.

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

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.

Discredited Teathers director Nilesh Jagatia has form in failing to produce accounts on time

It seems that Nilesh Jagatia, discredited director of Teathers Financial (TEA), has got recent form when it comes to failing to submit accounts by the statutory deadline. Mr Jagatia is finance directors of a number of Plcs, including one of my old favourites, the piece of Turkish that is Inspirit Energy (INSP). Just like Teathers, in December last year Inspirit received a First Gazette to strike the company off the register of companies for failing to provide its accounts on time. What is it that Mr Jagatia doesn’t understand about the legal requirements concerning his job?

Proactive Investors - surely it & the Daily Mail should declare that this is paid for ramping?

I have no problem with folks taking payment to promote a stock. If a company wishes to spunk shareholders cash to pay an IR firm like Proactive to record a soft interview with its CEO that is not an issue as long as commercial interests are declared. You have got to be transparent. But Proactive Investors and the Daily Mail are showing no transparency and this is surely wrong. I refer to Inspirit (INSP) ramping.

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

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.

Inspirit Energy - news from the boiler room - yet another placing, next one soon

There has been a real attempt to ramp Inspirit Energfy (INSP) on a six month timeframe ahead of today's placing. There were tweets from my fave Monaco based Colonial with whom I have a summer truce and whom I thus shall not mention, the utterly meaningless share purchases (spoofed ya!) by John Gunn and a series of soft paid for interviews with Sith Lord Zak "Judas" Mir and others when Mr Gunn said there was no need for a placing. So today there was a placing.

Inspirit Energy Holdings - David Lenigas repolishes this turd from the boiler room

It has all gone a bit quiet in the boiler room but in the absence of any real news who better to step up to the plate and pretend that there is good news than fat Aussie share ramper Jabba The Hutt? With just 25 days to go until he is 100% exposed at UK Investor Show by myself (SEE HERE), today David Lenigas tweeted:

Inspirit Energy – look at the competition and tell me Inspirit is not a joke

Last week I pointed out that Inspirit Energy (INSP) is merely a relaunch of a company that went bust and as such any claims that its IP was either revolutionary or valuable were likely to be spurious. Just to demonstrate this compare its offering with that of a listed competitor

Tom Winnifrith BONUS Bearcast 26 January - Questions for David Lenigas on the Afriag car crash

Yesterday's statement from Afriag (AFRI) stinks. The shares are plunging today and the destination is 0p. I have a series of questions for Jabba the Hutt about his baby but will David Lenigas answer? And where does that leave his other hounds still on AIM (pro tem) such as Inspirit (INSP) and Evocutis (EVO). If Afriag was telling the truth yesterday, surely their days on AIM are also numbered?

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. The ally of Jabba The Hutt always says that he is in it with ordinary investors. Well, up to a point. Let's rewind.

Q & A in the boiler room with Inspirit Energy:

The Jeremy Paxman of the financial world, Mr Zak Mir went into the boiler room to interview Inspirit Energy (INSP). Gosh this interview is probing. Not. Over to the Sith Lord.

Zak Mir's Bulletin Board Heroes: Corero, Emerging Market Minerals, Hydrodec, Inspirit, Pantheon & UK Oil & Gas

Featuring shares in Corero Networks (CNS), Emerging Market Minerals (EMM), Hydrodec (HYR), Inspirit Energy (INSP), Pantheon Resources (PANR) and UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) setting share price targets for all six stocks.

Inspirit - is director buying just spoofing the market?

And so, in the face of all the questions being asked about AIM-listed Inspirit Energy Holdings plc (INSP), rather than answer them we had news yesterday that the Chairman and CEO, Mr John Gunn, had dipped into the market and bought 5 million shares. But what of the elephant in the room?

The 49 Red Flag Tick List - Inspirit Energy

I published a book last year "49 Red Flags" - there are actually 50 listed and the book explians why each is important in avoiding piss-poor investments. As a little exercise the deputy Sheriff of AIM and I have applied the check list to Inspirit Energy PLC (INSP) and the results are appalling.

Inspirit – more Companies House issues, more on that change of Auditor, more Red Flags.

AIM-listed Inspirit Energy Holdings plc (INSP) has confirmed that its change of auditor was due to the resignation of PKF Littlejohn. There is a statement in FY15 accounts that the auditor was appointed during the year following the resignation of PKF Littlejohn LLP. But that means that PKF resigned during the year to way back in June 2015. When an auditor resigns there is supposed to be a filing to Companies House to that effect, with an accompanying letter from the retiring auditor giving the circumstances relating to the resignation, or a statement that there is nothing to be brought to the attention of the members or creditors of the company. Those are supposed to be filed to Companies House within fourteen days. Here we are more than six months later: where are they? 

Inspirit - about that change of auditor: why no Companies House filing? And More

I have already flagged up enough Red Flags with regard to the ex-Lenigas play, AIM-listed Inspirit Energy (INSP) - see HERE and HERE - to consider it a share to keep well clear of even Desperate Dan's bargepole. But a change of Auditor is also a Red Flag, and there appears to be no statutory filing showing on the Companies House website to explain why PKF Littlejohn LLP is no longer in post.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast 4 January - bent share tipsters & useless companies

I am now back from New York and arrived in Bristol about an hour ago. 7 hours sleep, since Saturday at 11 AM your time, and I am cream crackered. And so I shall shortly be joining the Mrs and my morbidly obese three legged cat Oakley in bed and going straight to sleep. Before that a bearcast covering BSD Crown (BSD), Inspirit (INSP), Evocutis (EVO), Scancell (SCLP) Motive TV (MTV) and the curent rumours surrounding 3 bent share tipsters and the FCA.

Inspirit Energy - a festival of Red Flags on New Year's Eve: Sell

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.

Inspirit Energy - what happened to your Broker, Beaufort Securities?

Oh dear. This looks horribly like a breach of AIM Rules - perhaps the company (or some avid reader) can help me because I can't find an announcement that Beaufort Securities has stepped down as Broker to AIM-listed Inspirit Energy (INSP).

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast New Year's Eve - HNY, Pete Landau in the dock, Lenigas boiler room play Inspirit in the shit

Happy New Year to you all, I hope that you have a wild party tonight. Remember kids, if someone tries to sell you drugs just say no. You should always try to get drugs for free. Only kidding.  Thanks to today's news about Pirate Pete Landau I am in a good mood. You send the Sheriff of AIM lawyers letters and karma is going to get you in the end. My good mood is compounded by diabolical interims from the David Lenigas boiler room operation Inspirit (INSP). It really is in the merde. I discuss companies that leave it to the wire to report.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast Special: David Lenigas quits the AIM casino shocker - end of an era

Jabba The Hutt quit all five AIM Casino boards he sat on today. In this podcast I reveal the events of the weekend and discuss why he may have left. I warn him that the Nationals are on his case and so smearing me will be ever more pointless. And then I look at actions of the Bulletin Board morons who are still in denial. And finally at what this means for the Jabba stable. It is bad news. The best bet for near term zeros are Afriag (AFRI) and Evocutis (EVO) but Rare Earth Minerals (REM), Inspirit (INSP), Solo Oil (SOLO) and LGO Energy (LGO) are also all slam dunk sells as I explain.

David Lenigas quits ALL AIM companies? Why? Its ouzo o'clock anyway for the Sheriff: Another KILL

This morning fat Aussie share ramper David Lenigas has, without warning, resigned from the boards of all five AIM Casino Companies on which he sat: Inspirit (INSP), Afriag (AFRI), Rare Earth Minerals (REM), Bacanora (BCN) and Evocutis (EVO). Why?

A Reminder of my 12 Questions for ex AIM boss David Lenigas - he never answered

Jabba The Hutt has yet to announce his resignation from the board of Inspirit (INSP) but it must be imminent as he has quit four of his five remaining AIM directorships this morning. I guess in the boiler room they are not at full speed yet. Why the sudden departure from AIM? More on that later but here is a reminder of 12 questions I posed on 28 November for David Lenigas and of why you should have sold shares in EVERY company associated with him. Update: Big Dave quits Inspirit too.

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

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

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 17 December - Concha another day of shame for AIM

I am sitting here with my father in Shipston. We have just had a long argument about the deaths of Cranmer, Latimer & Ridley. Naturally we both insisted we had the facts right. I am now 1p better off as I was right. My father has gone to the White Bear early in protest. Back to the podcast, I start with US base rates and why the UK will follow and what that means (house price crash, bad for certain equities). Then it is the AIM disgrace of the day Concha (CHA), onto Afriag (AFRI), Inspirit (INSP), Ultimate Sports (USG), Fastjet (FJET), and the shocker of a July IPO Adgorithms (ADGO). It is another day of shame for AIM.

Inspirit Energy - more woes for David Lenigas as compulsory strike-off looms

Oh dear, as if David Lenigas hasn't got enough on his plate already it appears that AIM-listed Inspirit Energy (INSP) has a pressing issue to deal with. For it seems that it has received a notice for compulsory strike-off - see HERE.

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

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 3 November - call the Financial Ombudsman Now

This podcast ends with me thanking many readers for making me laugh. Before that I look at Lenigas Cuba (CUBA) and suggest that all 2p investors contact the Financial Ombudsman now. Then I discuss the - unfashionable - idea of taking responsibility for our own actions. Then I cover the fraud Globo (GBO) before looking at LGO Energy (LGO) and Inspirit (INSP) where placings loom very soon indeed. Then I cover World Careers Network (WOR), Standard Chartered (STAN), PeerTV (PTV) and Getech (GTC).

Reader Poll – which is the next David Lenigas ramp to issue new shares?

We will ignore the preposterous Lenigas Cuba as we already know that it is trying to rope in suckers to pay 5p – a mere 25,000 % premium to what Big Dave paid for his own shares just three months ago. But which of the other companies associated with the fat Aussie share ramper will be next to place?

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast 8 October: To quote Rambo "Don't push it or I'll give you a war you won't believe"

Naturally I have a complete box set of both the Rambo and the Rocky films on DVD. I have suggested to my Mrs and her mad lefty friends that we have a relaxing weekend in watching both box sets but for some reason they don't seem too keen. Perhaps they would settle for Delta Force? Did I read that there wil be a new Rambo film where he takes on ISIS? Bring it on. The quote is prompted by a threatening email received from the boss of a firm booted off the AIM casino. It will not wash. In this podcast I discuss Belzone Mining (BZM), aka Bellend Mining, Cloudbuy (CBUY), Inspirit (INSP) where I suspect the next news from the David Lenigas boiler room will be another placing, Sareum (SAR), Motive TV (MTV) and Getafix Stacey fave Feedback (FDBK).

Flowgroup, Sabien & Inspirit - Problems in the boiler room

So far this week shares in Flowgroup plc (FLOW) have fallen by more than 46% (to 14.25p), in Sabien Technology Group (SNT) by 17.5% (to 8.25p) and in Inspirit Energy (INSP) by approaching 8% (to 0.58p). Each is an AIM-listed company involved in efficient boiler products, so what’s happening here?

Should we be sad to see Lenigas go?

Yesterday was a momentous day for AIM as we saw David Lenigas depart his role at Leni Gas and Oil (LENI). Lenigas stepped aside from his eponymous company and gave way to a new number of board members. He leaves behind his legacy if only in name and maybe salaries will rise, but should we be sad or is this a great revelation?

The Lenigas Series Part Two; Buy Inspirit Energy

Brushing away a torrent of crazy abuse after calling sells on Afriag (AFRI) and Rare Earth Minerals (REM), I turn my attention to another Lenigas stock, Inspirit Energy (INSP). Inspirit is a technology stock that is looking to commercialise micro combined heat and power (mCHP) boiler. The boiler has been developed for a long time under the company's stewardship and the technology has come on leaps and bounds.

The Lenigas Series Part One: Sell Afriag & Sell Rare Earth Minerals

Today I start a new side column for ShareProphets in which I plan to go through the swathes of David Lenigas companies on AIM. Naturally David says all his companies are cheap and uses flamboyant language to capture the attention of retail punters. I have looked at Leni Gas (LGO) before so I begin by sharing my thoughts on Afriag (AFRI) and Rare Earth Minerals (REM).
