Richard Shearer, the relatively new CEO of Tintra (he was only appointed on 2 July 2021) continues with his impressive and rapid transformation of the former uber dog St James House (SJH). Under his leadership Tintra (TNT) is now giving clear guidance of its strategy and the next steps in that process to shareholders and then rapidly executing on those steps.
Rapid progress is being made in the transformation of St James House (SJH) now renamed Tintra Plc (TNT) by the new CEO Richard Shearer as demonstrated by issuance of three RNS announcements on 13 August.
In the last couple of years, St James House (SJH) has made two separate disposals in respect of its payments business to a company MDC Nominees Limited which is wholly controlled by its in-house barrister Mr John Botros. The first two disposals generated very significant profits for St James as it disposed of insolvent businesses for only £1. St James has now sold a third payments business in the same way. The details of all three transactions are summarised below:
Nigel has already covered the low lights for the St James House (SJH) results for the year ended 31 January 2021 with its significant loss on ongoing activities and the train wreck of a balance sheet but as ever with St James, it is worth a deeper dive to really understand what is happening.
AIM-listed St James House (SJH) – formerly Lord Razzall’s disaster that was Boxhill Technology (BOX) – has announced FY numbers to January this year. Needless to say, they are disastrous…..
A frantic morning of tidying sees Joshua and I ready to face the Mrs, we head to Athens shortly. Ahead of that I suggest a new gender test for the Olympics. In the main podcast I look at bitcoin, Argo Blockchain (ARB), Fevertree (FEVR), coping on a meltdown day, Nightcap (NGHT) and St James House (SJH).
Since my last article on St James House (SJH), the Tintra connected Directors on the Board of St James House have been busy and there has been a flurry of announcements in July. But what they face is an Augean stable.
On 7 June 2021, Eden Research (EDEN) issued an RNS titled “Notice of AGM, investor conference & Accounts” which included the following statements:
To those like market abusing foul mouthed troll and penny share huckster Chris Akers who calls me a TWat or to the legions of Bulletin Board morons owning shares in frauds such as Zoetic (ZOE), Supply@ME Capital (SYME), etc who insist that I am a complete joke who can be ignored as they know better, this is for you. Yet again the Financial Reporting Council, the FRC, has taken direct action against a listed company because I alerted it to wrong doing. Yet again it writes to thank me. Folks that count take the Sheriff of AIM seriously, foul mouthed penny share hucksters and morons you are deluding yourselves.
Enthusiasts for St James House (SJH) like to cite that it only has 4,669,808 shares currently in issue, with a low market capitalisation of circa £2 million and that many of these shares are held by current and former directors as positives for the stock.
AIM-listed St James House has updated on trading in its AGM statement issued today. Except it doesn’t! And how are the financials looking? Er…. And if that is not enough to make shareholders run for the hills, there is the small matter of a boat-load of equity at just 10p waiting in the wings, with the shares currently at an amazing 55p!
Now this really is exciting! Back on the markets I look at Versarien (VRS) after TWO explosive exposes on this website today, Wildcat Petroleum (WCAT) St James House (SJH), Pantheon Resources (PANR) and naughty Colin Bird and Xtract Resources (XTR)
I start with the harassment: I wonder which fraudsters are trying to silence us today. Apologies if the site is slow, now you know why. Then onto Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV) and my scoop of earlier. Finally, St James House (SJH) and a follow up from Nigel’s shocking expose. I will do my second Woodlarks training walk on Sunday and am aiming for 12-13 miles. Think of my suffering, smirk and please donate HERE.
Technically insolvent AIM POS St James House (SJH) made a song and dance yesterday of its latest bailout rescue finance package – which neither bails it out or rescues it – with Tintra Acquisitions Limited. There is a £250,000 loan convertible into a death spiral at 10p per share (take note shareholders, with the price currently 45p a pop!) but tied to that are two option deals which apparently bring in between them a fraction below £180,000. So how much of that will find its way onto St James’ balance sheet?
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.
As you dig through the detail of the year end 31 January 2020 accounts, you discover more evidence of still generous asset valuations and the poor deal-making ability of St James House (SJH) which is why anyone buying the shares is truly insane.
I start with news at the Welsh Hovel notably on the Ha Ha. More photos on a range of developments later. Then I have a quiz question for you before going onto detailed discussions on: Conduity Capital (CCAP) which I mistakenly call Continuity Capital throughout, St James House (SJH), Wildcat Petroleum (WCAT) and Verditek (VDTK) with an explicit come clean challenge for another fine upstanding ex Tory MP.
As well as disastrous, red ink soaked finals, St James House (SJH) published its interims, to July 31 2020, today and revenue was up an impressive 51% on comparative interims to £641,000; however, administrative expenses of £874,000 resulted in an operating loss of £567,000. St James House (SJH) was only able to report a profit of £192,000 due to the profit of £759,000 for disposal of Market Access Ops Ltd for consideration of £1. As I highlighted in my note of February 2020, I struggle to understand why Mr John Botros would buy a loss-making company for £1 as it came with net liabilities of £759,000.
This is such a mess, such a shit-shower of deceit and wrongdoing that it is necessary to split it into three parts. What follows is, even by the lowly standards of the AIM sewer, a total shocker.
The finance Director of St James House (SJH), “Desperate Dan” Pym was appointed as the Company’s Finance Director on 30 September 2020 and the company shares have been suspended since 2 November 2020 so under his reign the company has been in suspension more than it has traded. Once again I ask the question: is this is a record?
At 2.15pm yesterday afternoon – a Friday and thus a case of no-one-is-watching o’clock – AIM-listed but suspended St James House (SJH) put out an RNS entitled Trading Update. Intra-day trading updates are usually bad news, so this one caught my attention. So what do we learn?
At 11.00 am on Friday morning, St James House (SJH) fessed up that there would be yet another delay in the publication of its annual accounts for the year ended 31 January 2020.
The pretence is that this company is not insolvent. It is. It is time for various folks to wake up and smell the coffee. On 31 December 2020 in a trading update, St James House (SJH) stated in an RNS:
And so New Years’s Eve has come to a close and the Red Flags in the form of no-one-is-watching o’clock announcements (or in one case, non-announcement) of bad news have come to an end.
Oh dear oh dear oh dear. AIM-listed and already suspended pending accounts St James House (SJH) has offered up a rose-tinted trading statement this morning…..oh, and by the way the accounts to January 2020 which were due for release at the end October and were promised in November and then in December will be out in January, honest guv’. It is different this time. But there is one tiny detail the company seems not to have mentioned…….
St James House (SJH) on Friday admitted that it won’t be able to get its audited accounts for the year ended 31 January 2020 finalised in November 2020, a mere 10 months after its year end and as such its shares will remain suspended until the accounts are published. It also stated that its interim accounts for the six months ended 31 July 2020 will also be delayed until the year end accounts are finalised.
The newly installed finance director of St James House (SJH), Mr Daniel Pym, (appointed on 30 September 2020) hasn’t exactly got off to the best of starts because his announcement of delays in completion of the audit citing COVID 19 and “complexities in relation to fair value adjustments of certain assets” means that the shares will be suspended on 2 November 2020. Given these accounts are for the year ended 31 January 2020, the COVID 19 excuse isn’t credible as management has had 9 months to finalise the financial statements and major companies have published not only their 31 December 2019 accounts but also their interim accounts for the six months ended 30 June 2020. I look at three of the lower quality assets on the balance sheet where if I was the auditor exercising my professional scepticism, I would be requiring management to take major write downs:
There is that old saying that when good management (although the jury is out on that) meets a bad company it is the reputation of the latter which survives. And that brings me to AIM-listed uber-dog St James’ House (SJH) – formerly Lib Dem grandee Lord Razzall disaster Boxhill Technology (BOX). We’ve had funding not arrive, vacuous trading statements and now this morning the company tells us it cannot get its accounts out on time. So why has AIM Regulation not suspended the shares forthwith?
Another intra-day update from St James House (SJH) sees the shares leaping higher, but this just as farcical as previously?…
A “Trading Statement & Funding Update” from St James House (SJH) including “injection of cash, when combined with the capitalisation of liabilities, the stability of the lottery business and the steady growth of the payments business means the outlook for the business is positive despite the challenges all businesses have and continue to face” – and the shares have currently responded to 67.5p, 350% higher!...
On 11 May 2020, St James House (SJH) provided an update that the subscription originally announced on 31 January 2020 remained outstanding. It explained that:
This is my day of peak recordings - 7 hours of interviews and bearcast underway. I kid you not. apart from bearcast it is all great material for the Shareprophets shares show on May 9. I have just done the Jim Mellon recording which should knock your socks off. Poor man, he is trapped in lockdown in the Isle of Man but seems to be bearing up well. Anyhow, buy your ticket HERE. In this podcast I look at Eurasia Mining (EUA), Scancell (SCLP), 13 Energy (I3E), Arden Partners (ARDN), Petra Diamonds (PDL) and Intu (INTU).
On 31 January 2020, long time AIM uber dog St James House (SJH) announced that a new investor was going to subscribe for 1,666,667 shares at 30 pence per share to raise £500,000 in exchange for a 29.9% shareholding in the Group subject to approval to issue additional shares at a General Meeting. All conditions to approve the share subscription were approved at the General Meeting on 28 February.
On 31 January 2020 St James House (SJH) announced that:
In the current climate, I would be very guarded over handing over a cheque to subscribe for shares in any company, let alone AIM-listed St James House (SJH) – the former Lord Razzall disaster that was Boxhill Technilogies (BOX).
The disposal of Market Access Ops Limited (“MAO”) whilst a great deal for uber dog St James House (SJH) which sells a loss-making company with net liabilities for a £1 after stripping out the business it wants to keep does not appear to make a lot of sense from the perspective of the buyer Mr John Botros.
AIM-listed St James House (SJH), formerly Lord Razzell’s harikiri exercise Boxhill Technologies (BOX), has announced a proposed capitalisation of liabilities, the disposal of MAO for just £1 and new articles. What is immediately striking, however, is the double reward-for-failure for good old Lord Razzall – oh, and the doubling of approved shares capital available to be issued (Placing, anyone?)
On 6 December 2019, AIM uber dog St James House (SJH) issued a trading update indicating more losses for second half of the year ending on 31 January 2020. It also stated it was actively exploring options to improve the working capital position of the group before the end of its current financial year end on 31 January 2020 as it was working capital constrained.
You can’t say you were not warned on this website, but the old adage that when a bad company meets (perhaps, or perhaps not) good management it is the reputation of the former which prevails has once again proved true for AIM-listed St James House (SJH), formerly Boxhill (BOX), the past home of Lord Razzall. This afternoon we were treated to a 1pm Trading update: Friday lunchtime – definitely no-one-is-watching o’clock! Uh-oh…………
I reply to a listener who blames yesterday's lack of bearcast on my thoughts shifting away from Ms Cole to this young olive harvester - such a suggestion is almost defamatory. Then it is on to Dignity (DTY), St James Place (STJ) and - in some detail - the very naughty boys at Iconic (ICON), led by toxic Dave Sefton and why the two NEDS walked today.
In today's podcast I look at Crest Nicholson (CRST), pox on AIM St James House (SJH), Cyancannode (CYAN), Yourgene (YGEN) and shocking share options, Big Sofa (BST) Goals Soccer Centres and Carpetright (CPR). Blame Brokerman Dan for this podcast being late and for me being a dirty and smelly wreck as I explain in the show.
I am grateful to Reg Hoare for prompting Begbies Traynor (BEG) to answer my questions and so save me from having to go to Manchester. But its response gets only 5 out of 10 and leaves me unconvinced. I look at Sirius Minerals (SXX) where things will only get more grim up North. I cover St James House (SJH) and also Watchstone (WTG), where I give credit where credit is due.
In today's bearcast i shut the windows at the Greek Hovel to cut out the noise of the cricket circus. I really could stay here for good and not come back to the UK. The Mrs is not so sure but she is warming to the idea. In the podcast I look at St James House (SJH) a POS handing me a bit of a triumph as accounts restated, Big Dish (DISH) - which I expose for lying and mugging poor old Malcolm Stacey HERE - have some folks no shame? I also look at Kier (KIE) and Thomas Cook (TCG).
My fat, drunken, friend Jono from Zimbabwe arrives at the Welsh Hovel shortly and I shall try not to allow him to lead me astray. I also await Gabriel's next bombshell dossier I am to publish tomorrow morning. In this podcast I look at the wider implications of the RM2 (RM2) debacle for Neil Woodford, at IQE (IQE), at Fevertree (FEVR) - hat tip Leon Boros - at St James House (SJH) and at Diversified Gas & Oil (DGOC).
I have already explained in great detail how the accounts of St James House (SJH) run b y Lib Dem grandee Lord Tim Razzall, breach IFRS all over the shop and need to be restated. The company’s advisors say they are considering this. While they consider here is another howling and material error for consideration
I reflect on a week of triumphs with regard to lawyer's letters, Anglo African Oil & Gas (AAOG) and TrakM8 (TRAK) and revisit St James House run by Lord Razzall and its quite utterly ludicrous accounts which need major restatements.
The first reading is the one i shall do this afternoon just to give you an idea of the Tyndale bible. The second should be v ery welcome news for shareholders in Kier (KIE), Big Dish (DISH), St James House (SJH) and Sosandar (SOS) all of which I discuss in detail. That reading is Matthew 19 verses 23 and 24 (KJV): Then said Jesus unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven. And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God
Lib Dem grandee Lord Timmy Razzall may have changed the name of Boxhill to St James House (SJH) but this company which has been mired in so much corruption and fraud remains an uninvestable uber dog even by the standards of the AIM casino. Results earlier this week were covered in bearcast yesterday but perhaps merit further scrutiny. They are shocking, breach IFRS on numerous counts and quite simply aim to decieve. Nomad Allenby should be walking.
I start with a few notes on tomorrow, logistics and the funeral of Uncle Chris Booker. Then it is onto Yourgene (YGEN), Thomas Cook (TCG), Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO), Amur Minerals (AMC), and the dog St James House (SJH) formerly known as the Boxhill hound.
AIM-listed St James House (SJH) is not the investment house which gave Neil Woodford the dreaded vote of confidence – this is the old Boxhill run by Lord Razzall. It may have a swanky upmarket new name but it still looks like the disaster of old...
