Over at Paternoster Square, above the headquarters of the London Stock Exchange the black flag was again raised this morning as Geong (GNG) took its final walk to the AIM casino execution chamber and was despatched. I’ve been wanting to say this for three years: “Geong, Geong…Gone!” This is the 15th AIM casino ShareProphets China Filthy Forty stock to meet its maker since the Index was started on June 1 2014. Who’s next?
AIM-China poster-boy Global Market Group (GMC) looks set to become the next member of the ShareProphets Filthy Forty to be given the order of the boot, unless it can find itself a new Nomad by 21 September 2015. This Cayman Islands registered company joined AIM in June 2012 at £1.30 a share, when it raised £9.7 million through a Placing, to join the Casino with a market capitalisation of around £127 million. The shares fell almost immediately to just over 80p. They are now suspended at 50p – following the payment of a deposit in connection with a land acquisition as announced on 10 Aug 2015 - as the lobster-potted shareholders wonder whether the company will ever resume trading.
