It appears that Arcadia, owner of TopShop, Burtons and Dorothy Perkins is unable to tap an additional £30 million banking lifeline and so is likely to go into administration next week putting 13,000 jobs at risk. The odds are that most stores will be bought from the administrators so the actual jobs cull, though painful, will not be as painful as some fear. Already the blame game has started but who is really to blame?
The original caption on this photo tweeted by Quob Park Estate says "Great team dinner in Monaco, prior to TM Forum LIVE, looking forward to meeting with key clients while here". Surely this can be improved. The deadline is midnight tonight. Mr Terry is second from the left next to his charming other half.
This was recorded before the summer truce and so that really is it from me on Big Dave. He can site on his luxury yacht checking out the birds in Monaco, I shall sit in my Greek Hovel, clocking the snakes and rats and not having to meet another human all day. I think we can safely say that neither of us would want to swap! I hope we both have a relaxing and stress free summer. Anyhow here's the video from the show. Enjoy.
Monaco tax haven based promoter David Lenigas is today ramping Horse Hill shares at a minor trade show run by another offshore based share promoter. "tax minimization 'R us - screw the NHS." But, at the rampathon, what the fat Aussie wont be brandishing is a regulatory filing from late last week by Magellan Petroleum, the US listed owner of 35% of Horse Hill Developments. You see it wants out of Horse Shite big time.
Jabba The Hutt has taken to twitter last night complaining that I have not published his latest abusive email sent to me at 7.07 PM after yesterday's expose. Apparently I have to drop everything to respond and publicise this journalist bullying and smearing fat Aussie share ramper. Needless to say, the email from David Lenigas is pathetic but just to bring a smile to his face as he gazes down to the marina in the Monaco tax haven, where lives, to look at his 36 foot yacht....
I noted today that the ability of the (value) Wrecking Crew that is David Lenigas and associated gophers at Polemos was dire and I doubted if anyone could do worse (see HERE). But a kind reader has managed to find an even more disastrous investment made by Jabba The Hutt using - natch - other folks cash. Let's wind back to 2008 and LGO Energy (LGO), then called Lenigas & Oil.
Jabba The Hutt likes to get shares at 0.01p in companies he is involved in. So what if other folks have to pay far more at the same time, David Lenigas sees it as a reward for enterprise. We have already seen scandals on this front at Lenigas Cuba (HERE) and AfriAg (HERE) but the Big Daddy is Rare Earth Minerals (REM) as I shall now explain.
Yes it was all a dream, Rob Terry muttered to himself as he tried to banish thoughts of the ghostly apparition from his mind. He turned over to young Mrs Terry as if seeking confirmation. But she seemed still to be out with her girlfriends clubbing in Southampton. And she was not the only absentee from the marital bed.
