Very wisely, big Dave Lenigas stepped down as chairman of the company he founded on 30 July leaving his buddy Andrew Monk in charge. That the company’s adviser and broker on London’s standard list is VSA Resources run by er…. Andrew Monk is obviously not a conflict of interest at all. Anyhow, it is all ending in tears as an RTO underway for two years has hit the buffers and the company appears to be insolvent, What’s not to like?
Having been hanging around and burning the little cash it raised at IPO since July 2019, sub-Standard listed BSF Enterprise (BSFA) has announced a possible RTO and its shares have been suspended. The possible target is 3D Bio-Tissues Limited, a spin out from Newcastle University specialising in biological tissue production for clinical and consumer use. But there’s a nest of snakes here…
Having not completed an RTO within six months of becoming a shell, shares in Plutus Powergen (PPG) were suspended from the AIM sewer this morning but fear not: Charles Tatnall and James Longley have a US coal RTO “oven ready” as Lyin’ Boris Johnson might say. Natch it is what is not in the release that should horrify you although that contains at least one absolutely monstrous lie.
Shares in long term dog IMC Exploration (IMC) have soared on news that it is to do an RTO of the company owning the Karaberd gold mine in Armenia. But is what it says in the RNS the whole truth or has it engaged in a deal on an asset originally awarded on a questionable basis and with a company that has screwed local people and welshed on a string of financial commitments?
That Supply@ME Capital (SYME) is a fraud is beyond all doubt. Put simply, it has deceived gullible investors on an industrial scale allowing directors to sell vast numbers of shares at grossly inflated prices. They get to become multimillionaires as a result while mug punters will lose everything when Supply finally admits that it has run out of other people’s money. Which it already has but has yet to admit to. Yesterday, evidence emerged of THREE more monster deceptions via RNS which pumped the stock allowing insiders to sell. I have written to the FCA as you can see below.
I end with a few notes on Woodlarks. There are now 7 walkers confirmed – please do make a donation HERE. Then I discuss 2 acid tests today for the FCA: Supply@ME Capital (SYME) and Lyin’ Chris Cleverly’s planned RTO into Stranger Holdings (STHP). Then I look at St James House (SJH) and wonder if the taxman needs to have a butcher’s at 4 of its disposals involving John Botros. Then it is onto IQE (IQE) and why Malcolm Stacey and thirsty Paul Scott are wrong. Finally a look at Jubilee Metals (JLP). I look at the fundamentals after today’s interims and conclude that the shares should be well North of 20p. Then I discuss the matter with the world’s leading analyst of PGM stocks beginning with J for his input.
Amazingly, after all the lies, well documented on this website, that African Potash (AFPO) told before being slung off the AIM sewer and all the lies it has continued to tell under its new name of Block Commodities (BLCC) while on the joke Aquis Market, the shares remain listed. Lyin’ Chris Cleverly has, however, stepped down “to pursue other interests”. That announcement came as the company managed to find an adviser to act for it. I wonder if it was a condition.
Mr Lenigas is at it again as I show below. I discuss whether I should capitulate, call this bullcast and move on. And what that says about the state of the market. I feel like Tony Dye in 2001. Then I try to explain the maths behind RTOs and acquisitions by shells as folks just don’t seem to get it. I reference the fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME) and Wildcat (WCAT) in this section.
I start with the Poulden/Lenigas/Peterhouse/Mir ramp Upper Thames (UPPT). Then it is onto Ridgecrest (RDGC) where I go through the exact timeline of events and all the issues which the FCA should examine in a formal enquiry. Then I have new questions for Zoetic (ZOE) and its loathsome PR Mr Henry Halfwitted-TopHat, formerly the PR of choice to Chinese fraudsters on AIM, about District 8, the RTO and what actually happened and finally comment on the weekend analysis of Versarien (VRS). Both it and Zoetic are shares where my target remains 0p.
There is a flurry of new cannabis listings going on at the moment, and Peterhouse play Kanabo (KNB) joined the Standard List yesterday, having reversed into Spinnaker Opportunities – a cash shell which joined the sub-Standard list back in 2017. The RTO was accompanied by a placing, raising £6 million gross at 6.5p and the stock is, ahem, on a high at 17.25p giving a market capitalisation of a very tasty £62 million. So is it a buy or a bargepole?
I warned you on Friday that with the scoundrel penny share spivs at LSE Sharetalk, the house of Zak Mir, ramping away, the 3p share price of AIM shell Ridgecrest (RDGC) was insane and that even broker Peterhouse which has only last Wednesday raised £2 million (gross) at 0.6p would be vaguely embarrassed. Indeed, that seems to be the case as now the company has been forced to issue a statement.
As you will be aware, I have today written to the FCA about the lying and suspicious share trades of Supply@ME Capital (SYME) chairman Dominic White. An eagle-eyed co-conspirator draws my attention to page 101 of the (balance sheet fraudulent) RTO prospectus from March 23 2020. I do not wish to be a pedant but…
If Supply@MECapital (SYME) was about to announce price sensitive information as it repeatedly claims, how come its directors are share dealing like dervishes? There is another one at it today – chairman Dominic White dumping stock with an excuse lamer than a three-legged cat and, meanwhile, the market abusing CEO Alessandro Zamboni has been forced, by my article, to clarify his dodgy dealings of yesterday. His clarification begs more questions.
On September 3, Papillion Holdings (PPHP), one of the (sub) Standard List dogs run by colourful value destroyers Charles Tatnall and James Longley, announced yet another RTO deal. Shares in the company, which is clearly insolvent, have been suspended for an eternity pending one RTO or another but will this move into gold mining go through? The whole thing is bonkers.
It looks as though the fun is finally over at Cynical Bear’s favourite, Mark Gustafson’s Standard-listed Challeneger Acquisitions (CHAL) for this morning the shares in the carcass of failed Big Wheels were suspended pending an RTO. Quite what Cindrigo Energy thinks it is doing taking on up to £560,000 of Challenger’s creditors and overheads, plus the costs of the RTO I am less sure of.
Pest control and hygiene company, Rentokil Initial (RTO), wasn’t looking particularly strong even prior to the arrival of Covid-19 and was trading at a very racey valuation, in my opinion.
This was a dog of an RTO which Steve and I have regularly, and correctly, called out as such on this website. Sure no-one could have predicted Coronavirus but this is a disease that, largely, kills the sick and ailing and so Escape Hunt (ESC) is an obvious potential victim.
I have been on hols the last few weeks in the UK, but could not miss the disruption resulting from the power outage on the grid on the 9th August. Being the sort of chap I am, it did not take me long to turn my thoughts to which small cap companies could be beneficiaries of this. I came up with one – RedT Energy (RED). But its shares are suspended pending an RTO finalisation. Bugger! Meanwhile I can rant a bit awaiting its re-list on where we are and why...
Neil Woodford’s revolutionary bed project at AIM-listed Eve Sleep (EVE) took an unusual turn as the company announced this morning that it is in very early stage discussions regarding the potential merger of Simba Ltd, ("Simba"). I’m confused – I thought the company was called “Simba Sleep Limited”. Some people might see this as a triumph for Neil Woodford, but I think very differently...
Stranger Holdings ( STHP) is one of the stable of worthless and pointless companies on the Standard List run by Charles Tatnall & James Longley which this website has done so much to expose. Results out today for the year to March 31 2019 are sheer comedy: related party deals, accounting errors, an abandoned RTO and one that surely will be, a pretence that the company is not insolvent which, of course it is, even a cynical bear would be shocked by this nonsense.
Cynical Bear has been in touch to flag up more strange money go round happenings in the Standard List mini empire of worthless shell companies controlled by Charles Tatnall. For Fandango Holdings (FHP) has just released its results for calendar 2018. It loks grim but also odd.
There’s nothing like talk of a short squeeze to get private investors predicting all sorts of crazy figures and scenarios – when the reality is that it is normally nothing more than just a rumour designed to pump the share price, and even if true it would be more likely to result in suspension of trading for a disorderly market, than a huge rise in the share price.
When running Daniel Stewart (DAN) for the benefit of himself and his family, Peter Shea sent me a lawyers letter trying to stop me exposing what a crock of shit his company was, as it snuggled up to King fraudster Rob Terry. Better still his brother, also a Daniel Stewart employee as were four other family members, threatened to beat me up. So I doorstepped the Daniel Stewart Christmas Party - the brother hid inside the building. Congratulations Mr Shea & your vile family, you have met the Sheriff of AIM.
Over the weekend I flagged up all the red flags surrounding the curious RTO of Adam Wilson's Atlantic Carbon by Peter Shea's worthless Daniel Stewart Securities and the enlarged group's planned Standard Listing. Notably I explained the horror's in Atlantic Coal's accounts and the daft $86.8 million valuation put on Atlantic by See Through Equity in the note below which is on Atlantic's website. Uh Oh...
More than a week after we exposed the coming death of Daniel Stewart & Company the weekend press has finally woken up and is reporting how it went into administration on Thursday. But something bigger happened on Thursday. Daniel Stewart, c/o former boss Adam Wilson is coming back to the market via a standard listing. Let me explain with the documents below..
I cannot hide my pleasure at today's catastrophic news from Audioboom (BOOM). Media companies should believe in free speech - Rob Proctor's outfit buckled at once forcing me to move bearcast elsewhere. And now Proctor's company faces possible bankruptcy in four weeks time. Ha fucking ha. This is a shambles.
An “Update” announcement from Kin Group (KIN) - this after a late 2017 bailout, dilution almost to oblivion, confetti issuance extraordinaire and the company already then on the clock with regards to a transaction representing a reverse takeover under AIM rules…
I’ve been hugely critical of FastForward Innovations (FFWD) in the past, in the main due to the lack of transparency and the poor performance of Schoold and Vemo, Lorne Abony’s own investments in FastForward’s portfolio; however, today’s news is much more promising and I actually wonder whether it’s worth a dabble!
It seems that Thursday's RTO of Sosandar (SOS) at 15.1p went well enough. The shares closed Friday at 20p-21p and I am very confident indeed that we loyal shareholders would have a chance to sell at well over 30p before too long. This retailer will not be disappointing with its next trading statement which, I'm sure, will force brokers to increase forecasts. But some of my fellow shareholders don't seem to be the brightest sparks or my greatest fans. From the ADVFN asylum:
Just a short bearcast today as I had to rush off for my regular Thursday morning date with the Fit Young Mums. In today's podcast I talk about the IPO/RTO today of Sosandar (SOS) which we own shares in and I reveal the first of the celeb investors. Then it is onto Playtech (PTEC) and some wider thoughts on gambling regulation in the UK. Finally there is a look at Rosslyn Data (RDT) where - hat tip Roger Lawson - it is surely profits warning ahoy. I look back at the numerous Rosslyn red flags.
Shares in uber-ramped Echo Energy (ECHO) were suspended today after a sharp share price move on Friday forced an admission from the company. Hmmmm, heavy share dealing just before a big announcement. But this is AIM, the world's most successful growth market so that is just a total coincidence just like it always is on the casino. Move along gents..nothing to see.
Declarations first: a) at 11p offer the shares are back at the price at which Concepta (CPT) came to AIM via an RTO in July of last year. It has clearly not delivered as rapidly as we would have liked b) We invested at the RTO and have not sold any of our shed load of shares. Results for the half calendar year came out last week and, speaking bluntly, the numbers do not look that great. In fact they look piss poor. It reported sales of zero, a loss of £1.15 million and ended the period with cash of £1.235 million. So far less than dazzling right? But....
At the start of the month, I asked the question on the lips of all the Levrett (LVRT) shareholders, namely when the bloody RTO was finally going to arrive. Well, fair play, it was announced on Friday and shareholders should be pleased, particularly the founders who got in at a fraction of the price of the ordinary private investor.
I was smiling for much of yesterday having read the announcement from Monchhichi (MCC) about its proposed cancellation from AIM and a move to the Sub-Standard segment of the Main Market. Let me explain why.
I despair somewhat when I read the likes of Friday’s announcement from Polemos (PLMO) as I can’t really believe that companies on AIM can get away with the most over-used spoof in the market, namely the “shares being issued at a premium as consideration in an RTO” spoof, but I guess I may well point it out in the vain hope that, one day, CEO’s and Nomads will pen a more honest RNS.
Oh Ye of little faith!. There was big news on Tuesday for Optibiotix (OPTI). This was ONE of the big deals we were waiting for. There are more to follow but this should send critics of Optibiotix scuttling for cover as India's Tata is a giant. It has 660,000 employees and annual sales of $103.51 billion! Those who doubted us as we bought our first shares for two years HERE - at sub 55p a few weeks ago you can apologise. now. Go form an orderly queue. The shares are now 75p-77.5p and they are GOING MUCH HIGHER & SOON!
A week after my last piece on Papillon Holdings (PPHP) in which I slated the directors Charles Tatnall and James Longley, for their shocking behaviour, I can’t help but comment on this morning’s RNS stating that the long-awaited RTO with a failed gambling business is off. Who would have thought?
I don’t normally comment on the ongoing delays of the potential RTO’s of Sub-Standard Shocker XI members as I would be writing on the topic every week but the Levrett (LVRT) story throws up another angle, namely the total disregard to the obligation to announce results; so without a Nomad to enforce compliance with listing obligations, I thought I’d see if I would have any luck.
Beaumont Cornish resigned as Nomad from AIM-listed Nyota Minerals (NYO) on 17 August with the caveat that it reserved the right to go sooner, as per Nyota’s RNS of 18 July. That statement also announced that Peterhouse subsequently also informed the company that it would resign as broker. Both stepped down as planned, leaving the company suspended on the Casino with bugger all cash. Wind forward to last night (after-hours, natch) RNS and as previously flagged on 15 August, Peterhouse last night was announced to have withdrawn its notice of resignation and lined up a £550,000 placing at 0.005p. Meanwhile the company tells us that it is confident of appointing a replacement Nomad. It is full RTO steam ahead, then.
I wrote at the weekend about the surprising lack of TR-1’s at Red Leopard Holdings (RLH), particularly from the largest shareholder Spreadex, with the company having gone into suspension pending an RTO. Well, as if by magic, they arrived yesterday, after hours of course.
Orogen (ORO) has announced that it has lent another £250,000 to online e-tailer Thread 35 Ltd, trading as Sosandar. Time to panic? No. As loyal shareholders at FIML we certainly are not doing so.
Oh dear. Oh dear. Another AIM debacle involving Chinese funny money. This time it is Stratmin (STGR). Its cunning plan was to do an RTO of Signature Gold and to fund that deal with a £5 million investment from Axel Management Group Pty Ltd. What could possibly go wrong?
Oh dear, this really is a clusterfuck even by the lowly standards of the AIM Casino. You will remember that AIM listed Glenwick (GWIK), linked via Peterhouse Corporate Finance and Amanda Van Dyke to fellow AIM dog Paternoster Resources (PRS) in a related party snakefest, has had its shares suspended an RTO but there have been a few problemos. Oh dear. Oh dear.
Booted off the AIM Casino in March for failing to do an RTO on time, Amanda Van Dyke's Glenwick (GWIK) is nothing if consistent: it keeps missing deadlines. Cash is almost certainly zero, or near as damn it, by now but how about an update? So far no news is bad news for this related party infested failed ramp.
"Lyin' Chris Cleverley, fascist lawyers Memery Crystal,, NED Declan O'Brien,clueless accountants RSM Tenon, SA sleazebag MP Mark Simmonds, Phil Edmonds, Andrew Groves, we have beaten them all, we have beaten them all!. Lord Hain of sleaze, can you hear me? Lord Hain of sleaze ... your boys took a hell of a beating! Your boys took a hell of a beating!" Yes I think we can now declare victory in the war against African Potash. It never ends well for frauds especially those who hire fascist lawyers to send wanker letters to The Sheriff of AIM.
A number of things have been bugging me about BOS Global (BOS) for a couple of weeks as certain acts and omissions have had me scratching my head, so I thought I would raise some of these questions here and perhaps Michael Travia, CEO, can provide some answers.
Bingo. Off we go. We hope that you averaged down and got on board as we urged the other day as shares in Orogen Gold (RE) have been suspended at 1.7p ahead of a readmission document for what looks like a cracking RTO. This could be the most sizzling Adam Reynolds reverse yet.
This week was always going to throw up a few horrors with it being results week for a whole load of the Sub-Standard Shockers XI. I will do a round-up of some of the other comedic moments from the various announcements over the long weekend but Papillon Holdings (PPHP), which failed to get its results out at all, deserves a special mention.
This really should have been an ouzo o'clock moment as lying Chris Cleverley, Lord Hain of sleaze and the gang round at the African Potash (AFPO) fraud saw their shares suspended on the NEX lobster pot. But I was a good diabetic and had a Greek salad, medication and water instead. But I am off sick leave this morning because dissecting such unmitigated horseshit brings joy to my heart and is good for the blood pressure and the soul. This is comedy central from lyin' Chris who is still to follow through on his promise to sue me for libel. I can't think why. The Potash statement is in bold, the lie detection service is not. Brace yourself, this is funny.
Mixed emotions for me this week as it looks like one of the more entertaining stars of the Sub-Standard Shockers XI, Opera Investments (OPRA), may finally have done a decent looking deal with the Kibo Mining (KIBO) gold assets; however, it looks like it will be heading off for the sunnier climes of AIM as a result, leaving my squad ever so slightly weakened.
I wrote six months ago about the laughable potential RTO deal between Jim Mellon-connected Life Science Developments (LIFE) and Jim’s favourite private investment, The Diabetic Boot Company. Well, surprise, surprise, the deal hasn’t happened and Life Science will be booted off AIM. It’s worth taking a closer look at what has gone on at this farce in the last 18 months.
I comment on the hopeless response of smug MPs and the established media to yesterday's terror attack on my own website in a podcast HERE. On the markets I look at expectations management at Next (NXT), at how we know or knew about the balance sheet at Toople (TOOP) covered HERE by Cynical Bear or Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) heading for 0p and covered in detail by me earlier HERE. I look at Public Services Properties (PSPI ) and what its AIM casino departure says about RTOs and contingent liabilities - which reminds me again of New World Oil & Gas (NEW). Finally I have a detailed look at the strange world of Paternoster Resources (PRS), not a stock you have to own in any way. PS Cynical Bear is not me. Can you see any typos in his articles?
Oooops I did it again, said the boy scout mugger Stuart Bromley. Anmther day and another fuck up at Standard List posterboy CIC Gold (CICG), shares in which have been suspended since Novemver 3 2015 as it pursued an all paper RTO of a worthless brown field gold explorer Gobi.
We have four more share tips out between now and January 2nd which you can access for just a fiver HERE, but here is one we prepared earlier which is our first share tip of the year.
I was going to wait until the prospectus came out for the Quiptel deal before commenting on the recent acquisition by Falcon Acquisitions (FAL); however, my spelling and grammar OCD got the better of me so I had to get a few things off my chest sooner rather than later.
New World Oil & Gas (NEW) has today been booted off AIM for failing to fulfill its investment policy following the collapse of the Big Sofa RTO but all is not lost...far from it.
Last night after hours AIM-listed New World Oil and Gas updated the market on a number of matters and it looks to be bad news all round. Having already announced that its proposed RTO with Big Sofa was off the table, the latest bombshell was that under AIM Rules it is to lose its listing on 9 November and that it had already agreed to part company with its Nomad (the useless Beaumont Cornish) as from the close next Monday. The mess could hardly seem worse.
Prompted by our shock revelations yesterday Worthington (WRN) has been forced to put out a statement to explain why it itself is heading for a CVA. It really is comedy genius.
This needs to be the day when London's worst Nomad Roland "Fatty" Cornish is drummed out of the City of London for good. This will shock you. New World Oil & Gas (NEW) has abandoned the RTO with Big Sofa but has not said specifically why. So let me assist.
I almost spat out my cornflakes with laughter at the ridiculous announcement from Life Science Developments (LIFE) this morning as it entered suspension pending an RTO with The Diabetic Boot Company (“DBC”). Please allow me to explain.
Commenting on Silver Falcon’s nonsense RTO earlier (HERE), got me thinking about my old friend BOS Global (BOS) that recently completed its “Fintech” RTO and in digging around, I uncovered some comedy gold.
It’s no great surprise to me that Sub-Standard Shocker XI member, Silver Falcon (SILF) called off its potential RTO with Fintech business, Lime Holdings, on Friday but it’s still worth highlighting a couple of aspects of this disappointing affair.
Suspended for failing to do an RTO, the AIM listed piece of crap that is Glenwick (GWIK) announced late last week, how it is to spunk all its cash. Need,less to say the company told a grotesque lie in its RNS and it and its advisers seem rather unwilling to return calls and defend or justify that lie. Peterhouse, Allenby, Glenwick you are cowardly bastards as well; as liars.
Today comes news that Kibo Mining (KIBO) has sold its non core gold assets to Standard Listed joke company Opera Investments (OPRA). This is good news for Kibo ..as for Opera, its standing just could not get any lower.
I was going to pen a light-hearted piece about two of Sub-Standard Shockers XI going in to suspension last week leaving my team a bit short but one of them, Levrett (LVRT), has wound me up today so I’m going to go in a bit harder on that one squad member instead. Let me explain…..
If you are someone who thinks that playing by the rules and being honest makes sense in the UK reguolatory environment think again. Just look at the much ramped Main Market listed fraud Worthington (WRN). Let's start with the latest news from the UK Listing Authority which came out at no-one is watching O'Clock on Friday.
As the share price of Forte Energy (FTE) keeps dropping as the BOS Global RTO approaches, as even long-suffering shareholders think some cash today is worth more than nothing tomorrow, I’ll have one last dig (for now) at something really riling me with this stock and that is the total misuse of the term “Fintech”.
Two weeks ago, following the release of its admission document I wrote about the valuation of Forte Energy (FTE) HERE. It was at 0.006p at the time and I thought 0.002p was a better reflection of the value. Well the share price has dropped to 0.0035p in the meantime but the bad news for those that have stuck it out so far is that my valuation should have been lower.
I am afraid that this involves Amanda Van Dyke, formerly of this parish, but the news from piece of Turkish Glenwick (GWIK) stinks of AIM cronyism and it is bad news all round for shareholders as suspension looms.
Now that NunaMinerals is in administration no-one other than the poltroons at the UKLA believes it will do a RTO of worthless fraud Worthington. So what next? Roll up Flagship Global Corporation which is listed on US OTC markets and is essentially bust. Perfect!.
I’ve been following the Forte Energy (FTE) RTO story since prior to suspension last December and, after seven months, the admission document relating to the acquisition of BOS Global finally came out on Friday and thought I would give it a review; the one word version of which is: SELL!
The farce that is the fraud Worthington (WRN) continues apace. The chocolate teapots at the UKLA are still publishing twice daily updates claiming that Worthington is considering an RTO with NunaMinerals, a company that is not only in administration but is also to be delisted in Denmark. its aceeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeed! all round at UKLA where the chocolate teapots still reckon that the deal is viable.
Another bust company becomes a healthcare player thanks to an Adam Reynolds RTO. Let us hope that Frontier Resources (FRI) becomes another Optibiotix (OPTI). The reversal is of a company called Concepta Diagnostics Ltd into Frontier and the PLC will change its name to Concepta.
Those familiar with my Sub-Standard Shockers XI will know that Senterra Energy (SEN) is the player manager of the team, it being an Optiva Securities vehicle, and yesterday’s confusing RNS on its potential acquisition warranted an update.
I discuss this in Bearcast today but Frontier Resources (FRI) has today announced the latest RTO by the shellmeister Adam Reynolds. We are shareholders and are taking up the open offer in full. Why?
Highlands Natural Resources (HNR) is yet to answer the issues raised in the Paul Mendell bombshell of last weekend and so while it keeps its head in the sand, here is another matter for it to discuss: why is it lying about its Helium plays? Yes that is the L word - go ahead and sue me bitchez I shall happily see you in court.
The former CEO of Danish listed NunaMinerals was owed cash by the company and yesterday managed to get the company formally declarred bankrupt in a court in Greeland - see HERE. That means that Main market listed fraud Worthington (WRN) can no longer procrastinate and claim to be in talks about an RTO. So it must be game over for Aiden Earley, Craig Whyte and Doug Ware.
Oh dear, Oh dear, Oh Dear, over-ramped POS Glenwick (GWIK) is deep in the merde. Its shares were unsuspended at 3 PM today following the collapse of talks about an RTO. They had been suspended on 23 May.It gets worse.
I have already covered the shocking covert bailout placing by uber-ramp Highlands Natural Resources (HNR) HERE. But today it has also announced a quite ludicrous bogus disposal which even the Bulletin Board Morons seem to concede makes this piece of Turkish a laughing stock. It involves fellow stockmarket dog with fleas Opera Investments (OPRA)
With Leni Gas Cuba (CUBA) posting its half-year results and its scheme circular for its RTO with Knowlton on Friday, it is a good to time to reflect on what delights the Canadians have in store.
Mr Kung Min Lin served as Chairman of Filthy 40 MoneySwap (SWAP) and PCG Entertainment (PCGE). But before that he served as Exec Director of AIM investing company Sportswinbet (SWB) from the 2005 IPO, which went on to become Power Capital Global (PCGB) with Mr Lin as Chairman. You can follow the progress of the first incarnation HERE. But we’re back from the break and with what's left of the £3 million raised in 2005 it’s now time for the second half: Mr Kung Min Lin’s brother comes to the fore.
Picking up on Cynical Bear’s footballing analogy and having previously wondered whether there might be a skeleton in the cupboard of ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty MoneySwap (SWAP) in the light of last week’s ‘fessing up by fellow Filthy Forty PCG Entertainment (PCGE), further digging reveals a festival of Red Flags. Look no further than the previous stamping ground of MoneySwap and PCG Entertainment (PCGE) former chairman, Mr Kung Min Lin, at Power Capital Global Limited (PCGB), which started life as Sportswinbet (SWB) in 2005. Here are the first half highlights.
To be fair, it was a shocking omission from the original squad (HERE) in the first instance but clearly with only three substitutes and three of the squad currently in suspension, I need as many players as I can get and CIC Gold (CICG) fits the bill.
Ooooooh is that a bankruptcy order in your pocket or are you just pleased to see me? Said Old Mother Worthington, played by Hattie Jaques. Aiden Earley, played by Jim Dale, gave a look of pretend shock and pinched Hattie on the bottom. Aiden is good at pinching. Craig Whyte, played by Sid James, is not in this film as he was detained elsewhere.
Cathal Friel did the right thing in turning Fastnet (an oil company) into Amryt (AMYT) a pharmaceuticals play. We bought into the RTO placing. Here is Cathal explaining the story at UK Investor Show. Enjoy
David Lenigas on Friday made the following exciting announcement regarding the disastrous ISDX IPO that is Lenigas Cuba (CUBA). He boasts of an RTO but it is all utter bollocks. Jabba announced:
Tom Note: This article appeared under the HotStockRockets name but I wrote it and would not want anyone thinking this was not my view. Off we go...Shares in Teathers Financial (TEA) remain suspended and will be booted off AIM on 4 June if no RTO takes place or if it cannot convince AIM that it has implemented its investing policy ( which it won't). It looks grim. The latest update states:
Having spotted the appointment of another joint Broker to AIM-listed Bushveld Minerals (BMN) on 8 April – see HERE – I had wondered if it was placing ahoy. Last Thursday saw the suspension of the shares announced by AIM at lunch-time, pending an announcement, although it took until after-hours on Friday for the company to bother to comment.
I am only asking but the much ramped Andalas Energy (ADL) formerly the much ramped CEB Resources has got two weeks to pubish an AIM readmission document or it will be booted off the AIM casino. It would be farewell to rule breaking ramper Dave Whitby, no great loss.
Heck. Everyone does the April Fool's thing don't they? And so the fraud that is Worthington (WRN) put out an RNS which we are meant to think is serious but is in fact a joke. Or in this case The Takeover Panel and LSE appear to think that it is serious but everyone else knows that it is just a joke, like spaghetti trees in Italy or Chelsea fans pretending they have always "supported the blues" from before they were good.
We now have official conformation that Frontier Resources (FRI) is dumping its oil assets. Great news.
This is quite simple. Either Oxi - the company reversing into 3Legs (3LEG) has filed monstrous lies at Companies House or Jim Mellon's 3 Legs has told monstrous lies to AIM. It is one or the other there is no third way and as such 3Legs needs to re-issue its RTO document to explain who was lying and why? In part 1 of this series I demonstrated unacceptable greed and Companies House filings that DO NOT ADD UP. Now here is the killer.
3 Legs Resources (3LEG) would have gone bust without my good pal Jim Mellon going in last June, investing £500,000 for a 29.9% stake and organising a Reverse takeover announced today. So he is a hero. The only problem is that this whole RTO stinks, companies house filings are all over the shop, nothing adds up and the stench of greed is palpable.
Already suspended for failing to produce its accounts to June 2015, ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty play LED International Holdings (LED) gave out a Chinese new year update on Monday which covered a number of matters – not least of which is the overdue accounts. And the binning of a JV which started life as a proposed RTO. And the non-completion of an acquisition first announced back in March 2013. And a warning that its working capital position is constrained because its customers are not paying their bills. And the company needs to raise cash or restructure debts. Apart from that everything’s fine!
Eastbridge Investments (EBIV) has in various incarnations losts its original shareholders more or less 100% since it joined the AIM casino. Its shares were suspended today on the back of an announcement that just stinks to high heaven.
AIM-listed Reabold Resources (RBD), with just £294,000 of net assets as at June 2015 is another of those sub-scale investment companies which would have to be run by Warrne Buffett on steroids in order for it to generate enough money just to keep the lights on. Yesterday at 5.45pm on a Friday, with the shares having closed for the day at 1.25p (valuing this fine enterprise at £3.5 million, according to ADVFN), a no-one-is-watching o'clock RNS announced a placing of 40 million shares at just 0.5p to raise £200,000 - a bit of electricity meter money. Something for the weekend, sir? Yes please - I'll have a nice spot of dilution at a whopping 60% discount.
Our apologies are due for overlooking one of the ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty companies. The RNS released by LED International (LED) three days before Christmas (HERE) almost passed us by: the company announced early in the no-one-is-watching o’clock holiday period that its shares were being suspended because it had become apparent that the Company [would] not be in a position to publish its audited report and accounts for the year ended 30 June 2015 by the deadline of 31 December.
I sincerely hope that the oxymorons at AIM Regulation and the chocolate teapots at the FCA look into what surely must be one of the most blatant cases of insider dealing I have ever seen. No news on the tables, yet the shares are up 53% today and this evening, after-hours, the company has been forced to issue the following RNS:
Shares in CEB Resources (CEB) are suspended on AIM ahead of an announcement on Monday. That is because its CEO Dave Whitby revealed a stack of price sensitive data including news that an RTO was planned in a podcast on ADVFN with Justin the Clown Yesterday. Flip Flop Ben Turney is so busy blowing smoke up the arse of Whitby that he may wish to ignore this. Whitby has broken insider dealing laws and a stack of AIM Rules. He should be sacked at once, barred from AIM and prosecuted. If you want to clean up AIM you deal with those who break the laws. Whitby has broken the laws. The Sheriff of AIM is getting a noose ready...
Verdes Management (VMP) has since its AIM admission in 2005 been a total dog. Different management teams have run different models and all have ended in failure. The last chump in charge was Dave Breith of Coms (COMS) infamy. But that is all changing. The shares YESTERDAY weere consolidated and relisted following a RTO by React (REAT) - the company's new name as of today. A refinancing was completed at 1.68p. The shares are a buy at up to 2p with a target to sell of 3.3p before the autumn is too well progressed.
Shares in AIM Casino listed Management Resource Solutions (MRS) were suspended yesterday as it admitted that monies it needed to complete an RTO had not arrived, a statement which begs the question as to who is its supposed lender Halcyon Capital Management Pty Ltd. Oooooo Errrr Missus.
Questions are increasingly being asked about Verdes Management (VMP) a cash shell run by Dave Breith of Coms (COMS) infamy. The cash position as at 31st March was £400,000. However.
Doriemus (DOR) became an oil company via a RTO of AIM listed TEP Exchange. On Friday it was announced that the TEP business is to be sold to managers for £1. My friend Brokerman Dan (Dan Levi) reckons this is a gross cheek and says he is bidding £1000.
This is not a share tip as we would like to be free to buy and sell this stock as and when we want but I can disclose that RMPC has pumped a five figure sum into Ducat Ventures (DUC) shares in which resumed trading today as it announced what looks an interesting RTO.
Early last month, I pointed out that Rentokil Initial (RTO), the £2 billion plus market cap services support company, was not far from what looked like a potential one year trend support line. At 118p, according to my inspection of the share price chart, the share seems to have reached that support level. So will it bounce off it?
Last week shares in tiny investment company Ducat Ventures (DUC) were suspended after jumping 56% in just a couple of hours. Heck this is AIM so surely nothing could be a bit iffy here…
