Hurrah! Hurrah! The core business, as opposed to the loss making sub scale asset manager Tradeflow, at the fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME) has just completed its first ever transaction. The morons are creaming themselves arguing that it makes the shares, at 0.11p, a £47 million market cap, look cheap. Au contraire. Let me explain why and ask three questions of boss Alessandro Zamboni
I contacted the FCA yesterday asking how on earth it signed off on the prospectus for Standard Listed Zamaz (ZAMZ) last week. As a recap, colourful Dominic White of the fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME) infamy will make a guaranteed Bernie on day one and for sub £100,000 gets to own 41% of the equity. There is sod all free float. The IPO valued this crock at £77 million but it is in reality worth net cash raised (£2 million) and £125,000 for the underlying business (max) as I explained HERE.
When someone eventually does something about the FCA, the £77 million IPO of Zamaz (ZAMZ) on the Standard List with a prospectus signed off by the FCA will be a case study in its shocking ineptitude and inability to tackle bad actors.
In today’s RNS, the fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME) announced that it had issued another 950 million shares at 0.05 pence per share and 475 million warrants exercisable at 0.065 pence per share. The gross proceeds were £475,000 but SYME has taken on debt of £47,500 (equivalent to an 10% upfront charge on gross proceeds). Th at small loan carries a 10% interest rate but is also repayable via shares at an unspecified conversion rate.
A correspondent supplies me with the recorded notes of the Q&A session from the June 30 AGM of the fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME). The mood certainly seems to be turning with lots of questions about broken promises, lack of delivery, bloated executive pay and destruction of the life savings of investors. The response to the questions is not impressive
I start on if I could, why I would short an opticians chain. I think the answer is I can't but I explain why I would like to. Then it is onto musicMagpie (MMAG), the fraud that is Supply@ME Capital (SYME), Shield Thereapeutics (STX) - today's lesson in insanity - and Ben's Creek (BEN) and disgraced Adam Wilson.
Undertaking an analysis of Supply@ME Capital’s (SYME) share register is made much simpler by the use of the platform Simply Wall St. This is an online app which is free to use for a limited number of companies. You can obtain the following summary for the apparent current shareholders in Supply derived from public sources by Simply Wall St. The summary analysis prepared is set out below.
I start with preparations for Sharestock on 10 September - if you are coming please book your seats now HERE. Then it is onto Cineworld (CINE), the stench of dodgy share dealing at Predator Oil & Gas (PRD), more buit still incomplete disclosures on boardroom share dumping at the fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME) and why Mahmud Kamani of Boohoo (BOO) is the last person on earth to follow as his company (adviser Zeus Capital) takes a 7.1% stake in Revolution Beauty (REVB) - adviser Zeus Capital. It is a small and cosy world innit?
As I noted yesterday, the fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME) is spoofing like there is no tomorrow to get its open offer away and to allow death spiral provider Venus to forward sell another tranche of shares. Supply is tunning on vapours. But there is a big question, the woke twits at the FCA seem unwilling to push on: how many millions of pounds has CEO Alessandro Zamboni made from covert and undisclosed share dumps? I have written to the FCA.
Is it good news that the bastard little brother of the fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME), Eight Capital Partners (ECP) has lost its CEO? Normally a shock departure after just 11 months as CEO is bad news. But this CEO in question is toxic.
Today Alessandro Zamboni the boss of the fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME) issued an update to his update of 29 July stating:
As the Bulletin Board Morons await news on their first inventory monetisation for a derisory $1.5 million promised to deliver in July by Alessandro Zamboni in his RNS of 28 June, then promised last week in his RNS of 29 July and so far, consistent with the majority of Zamboni promises nothing actually materialised.
I shall post photos in the next day or so showing me climbing a rocky and overgrown hill to a castle in the burning midday sun with my daughter Jaya on my back. I did the same three years ago with Joshua but managed better today. There is still life in this old dog. Then onto GSK (GSK) and Haleon (HLN). I ditched my Haleon shares today and explain why. Then I look at Revolution Beauty (REVB), ProCook (PROC), the fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME), Cellular Goods (CBX) and in detail at Purplebricks (PURP).
The whisteblower tells truly salacious stories - I shall speak to them at length, later. I discuss FinnCap (FCAP), the fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME), IQE (IQE), the chocolate teapots at the FCA, and MGC Pharmaceuticals (MXC). Gotcha!
I have written to the FCA, which is the regulator - no sniggering at the back, please - of companies on the (sub) Standard List, like the fraud, Supply@ME Capital (SYME). A statement is now overdue, for clarification of whether or not its boss, Alessandro Zamboni, has covertly dumped shares.
I start with the Tory leadership contest. Aren't they both awful? Then, I discuss chatting to a whistleblower. After that, it is onto Reach (RCH), Toople (TOOP ) - surely the FCA must act - Wickes (WIX), Made.com (MADE) and the fraud, Supply@ME Capital (SYME).
Shame on bucket shop Novum and on Peterhouse Corporate Finance for acting for Aquis listed Evrima (EVA). It is almost certainly insolvent unless king spiv Jon Bellis can raise it new funds, it is a lifestyle business and it wants to hide the ghastly truth from investors.
In my last article about the fraud that is Standard Listed Supply@ME Capital (SYME), I noted the following paragraph within the RNS of 22 July:
I start with a few reflections about being alone on holiday for the first time in two weeks. It is a short respite, but blissful. Then, it is onto Julie Meyer and why she is so wrong about the economic prospects of her latest bolt hole, Greece. It is doomed. Then, onto delusion among shareholders in the fraud, Supply@ME Capital (SYME). And finally, why you should book your tickets for ShareStock, on the banks of the river Dee in Wales, on September 10 HERE
As it promised, the fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME) is launching an open offer to qualifying morons (oops, I meant shareholders) at 0.05p, to raise up to £320,855. Natch the statement contains outright deceptions and misrepresentations, but also shocking news on the sub scale loss making asset manager, Tradeflow. The misrepresentations first.
In today's podcast I look at Audioboom (BOOM) where we bears are being well and truly vindicated. Then at the fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME) and finally at Made.com (MADE) which I expect to go bust by Christmas.
Following my expose of the amateur and rule breaking accounts of Eight Capital Partners (ECP), the bastard little brother of the Supply@ME Capital (SYME) fraud, I have written to my good pals at the Financial Reporting Council asking for a formal investigation into Eight and its auditors PKF LittleJohn and audit partner Zahir Khaki. The letter is below:
On 29 July 2020 the fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME) announced a loan transaction involving 5.89 billion shares as follows in an RNS:
Oh dear, oh dear. This should be another massive red flag for the morons who own shares in the Supply@ME Capital (SYME) fraud to ignore. It will also prompt a formal complaint to the FRC about auditors PKF Littlejohn and Eight itself.
Today, Supply@ME Capital (SYME) will hold its Annual General Meeting, which, amongst other things, will authorise an increase in its share capital. Thus, it can issue additional shares to Venus Capital under the death spiral, and to Tradeflow Capital vendors for the deferred consideration.
How to cram as many buzzwords as possible into an RNS, and thus excite moronic investors: a lesson from the fraud, Supply@ME Capital (SYME).
Shares in the fraud, Supply@ME Capital (SYME), raced ahead on news of a financially immaterial transaction. Crazy, eh? And how do we know it was immaterial?
Earlier, I exposed numerous red flags concerning a) 2021 revenues and b) the Tradeflow deal; now, I turn to Supply's (SYME) accounting blunders from calendar 2021. Of course, the company is no stranger to accounting blunders, including:
Now that the Woodlarks walk is over, it is time for an in-depth look at Supply@ME Capital's (SYME) shocking full-year numbers. This is the first of a multi-part series, and brace yourself; it is shocking stuff.
I am more panicked by the IRA man objecting to my bonfire. Heck, it is not as if it were the 12th July, and I were wearing my bowler hat with an orange sash, is it? In today's podcast, I look at Skinbiotherapeutics (SBTX); Eurasia (EUA) and a Kraut moron; Supply@ME Capital (SYME); and Argo Blockchain (ARB).
So, who do you believe: the fraudsters at Supply@ME Capital (SYME), or The Financial Reporting Council? Er...the FRC.
It is just two days until Rogue Bloggers, and we have raised more than £20,000 (with gift aid). Let's try and reach £25,000. I discuss rain, nettles and the inevitable pain on Saturday. Please donate, HERE. Then, the twit of the day contest: Boris v Harry of Kefi (KEFI) v Mark Steward, who has disgraced himself on Genflow (GENF). I then discuss Nostra Terra (NTOG) (praise be the lord), with a target price of 0p; the fraud, Supply@ME Capital (SYME); another Steward screw-up; and ITM Power (ITM).
According to his LinkedIn profile Mr Albert Ganyushin still works for the German asset manager Dr Peter’s Group. According to Supply@ME Capital (SYME) he “has worked as Head of Capital Markets at Dr. Peters Group.” Past or present? I do not really care. That is not the issue although if it is past that might explain his willingness to take Supply’s dirty cash. Any port, etc, etc.
These are the most-read articles and most listened-to Bearcasts of the week. The most read non-Tom article is Stuff going on at FTSE 100 giants Unilever and Glaxo! by Chris Bailey at a number four or number 8 if you include Bearcasts.
I have previously speculated that Charlotte is, in fact, a man. Furthermore, she is not a Brit but an Italian, possibly linked to the fraud, Supply@ME Capital (SYME). After an absence of many, many months, she is back with another email.
I discuss last night's hell in Frogland. Then, I raise two new red flags at the Supply@ME Capital (SYME) fraud, before looking at Tern (TERN), and Parsley Box (MEAL) as it heads to zero.
The results were delayed by a month and that demonstrated that while good news travels fast bad news is oft tardy. Even the fraudsters at Supply@ME Capital (SYME) seem to be starting to be forced to admit that the game is almost up as calendar 2021 numbers are a real shit show. This company is technically bust.
These are the most-read articles and most listened-to Bearcasts of the week. The actual most-read non Tom article is by me, last week’s pub quiz. The most read non-Tom, non-quiz article is Busy Thursday – BT Group, Johnson Matthey and Auto Trader by Chris Bailey at a non-leaderboard Number 17 or Number 23 if you include Bearcasts.
Follow the money… This is all about how Alessandro Zamboni, the CEO of Supply ME Capital (SYME), has dumped all his shares in the fraud, while pretending he has not. But the net is closing in on the scam, as today’s announcement from Aquis listed Eight Capital Partners (ECP), run by ex Supply chairman Dominic White, makes clear.
I start with some great news: my mother-in-law is moving to the next village tomorrow. Watch out Farndon! Then, I look at Trafalgar New Homes (TRAF); Fevertree (FEVR); Mirriad (MIRI); Supply@ME Capital (SYME); Dignity (DTY); and Zephyr Energy (ZPHR).
In just two weeks, the new death spiral provider, Venus, has dumped 3.32 billion shares on Bulletin Board Morons. If it is allowed to, it will likely dump another 15-20 billion. But the fraud, Supply@ME Capital (SYME), is insolvent even with the Venus cash, as I noted earlier. I have asked the FCA to step in and save private investors from being mugged.
On 27 April, the fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME) announced that it had issued 2,770,000,000 shares to death spiral provider Venus and on 10 May it announced that it had issued a further 550,000,000 shares to Venus following which its issued share capital is now 40,789,339,950. If Venus was, as some, of the Bulletin Board Morons are suggesting building a stake then it would now have a stake of 8.1 %.
Before the RNS announcement on 27 April, Supply@ME Capital (SYME) already had 37.4 billion shares in issue. This note sets outs out just how many shares could be issuable under this new death spiral arrangement assuming that the optional tranches get issued at the 0.05 pence per shares (whereas under the VWAP formulae the issue price could be even lower and thus even more dilutive.
These are the most-read articles and most listened-to Bearcasts of the week. The most read non-Tom article is The View From The Montana Log-Cabin As Gold (And Everything Else) Sells Off by Nigel Somerville at Number 3 or Number 10 if you include Bearcasts.
The question being asked on the LSE Asylum, as well as Twitter, was: who was the big buyer of Supply@ME Capital’s (SYME) worthless shares, at the close of business on Friday? On 22 April, at around 16.50 pm, there were, according to LSE Asylum’s share trade indicator, three 90 million buys, at £71,410 each, and a monster 285 million buys for £228,000, at 16.35 million. In total, these buys amount to over £440,000.
This morning, I had a long chat with an industry insider, concerning the latest death spiral from the fraud, Supply@ME Capital (SYME); what I relay to you is truly shocking. Anyone holding these shares is bonkers.
Last time, the complainant was anonymous; this time, it was Julie Meyer. I describe my chat. Suffice to say that Ms "sex toy on expenses" Meyer will again be frustrated. I contrast these Police visits with the way they failed me when I exposed the Chill Brands (CHLL) fraud, and was then harassed and smeared - I wonder how the guilty men, notably those at Buchanan Communications, feel this afternoon. Today, I deserve a shed load of ouzo after numerous triumphs and, in turn, I look at Chill, Supply@ME Capital (SYME), Bidstack (BIDS) and Vast Resources (VAST). Actually, I am joking about the ouzo: the kids and I are off to buy a hosepipe extension, some lavender plants, and an ice cream for Joshua. That is our reward.
You read about a new “Capital Enhancement Plan”, and it sounds like good news. But no. This is Orwell speak, and it is, in fact, a series of disastrous announcements from the fraud, Supply@ME Capital (SYME). Even Helen Keller and Ray Charles can see the writing on this wall - although, natch, some posters on the LSE Asylum still know better.
The fraud, Supply@ME Capital (SYME), promises its – dismal – calendar 2021 results will be out by Friday. Given that it is insolvent, I wonder how the reporting accountants will sign off on the document. Time will tell. Meanwhile, Supply seems to have problems updating its Companies House records on a timely basis. For instance:
We have previously noted why Ms Susanne Chishti is unworthy of Non-Exec Director of the year. But even low-grade corporate rats know when the game is up. The shock March 4 resignation of the one credible figure at Supply, its ex-chairman Jim Coyle, after just a few months at the helm, should have been a warning. Now, it appears that Chishti walked with immediate effect last Thursday.
I start with a personal reflection, as it is my late dad’s birthday. Then onto the wider scandal, highlighted by my expose of Canadian Overseas Petroleum (COPL). I discuss Avacta (AVCT), Supply@ME Capital (SYME), and how long one can defy gravity, before concluding with a detailed look at the numbers behind Moonpig (MOON), where, I suggest, shares will head much lower.
As Q1 limps to a close, it is difficult to see clearly through the fog of war. Mindful, doubtless, of the Covid aftermath – which bottomed almost exactly two years ago and led to a spectacular rally in stocks – investors have returned, and the sell-off seems to have petered out.
Maths test – complete the sequence: 0.204, 0.135, 0.12, 0.11407, 0.10, 0.056, x – what is x for Supply (SYME)?
The Mercator death spiral, can be repaid in cash or at Supply@ME Capital’s (SYME) option by being swapped into a convertible loan note. The total repayable is now £7.7 million repayable in 12 monthly instalments from inception. To date Supply has made 3 full repayments and one partial repayment as set out below:
Forgive the voice. Last week’s cold has left me sounding like I have been swallowing gravel. I start with a few words about distractions today which included ordering 72 blackthorn plants and 12 wild blackberry bushes and fetching antique Welsh furniture to go to Greece. Then I ponder whether Nigel is reinvesting his Ariana (AAU) dividends in Ariana (AAU).I explain why I am not and where I am putting the cash. Or rather I am sitting on the fence between Optibiotix (OPTI) and Skinbiotherapeutics (SBTX). The 3x company I mentioned on Saturday, is a well known one and will be exposed via a multi-part series kicking off tomorrow at 8.30 AM and it is, I am sure, a zero. Ahead of then I discuss what makes a real bear market and how it affects rubbish stocks out of cash. Until you see a good few RNS statements each month saying that “shares are suspended pending clarification” you are not in a bear market. In that vein, I mention three POS companies which RIGHT NOW have no cash and are burning it: Vast Resources (VAST), Chill Brands (CHLL) and Supply@ME Capital (FRAUD) and I discuss the next steps for that trio and why the net is tightening on them.
Next month, April 2022, auditors will have to decide of they can sign off on the accounts of the fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME). There will be the usual restatements (aka admissions of past lies) but the big issue is, ceteris paribus, whether this company is deemed technically insolvent and can get a sign off at all. A reminder of the maths before today’s, pathetic, spoofing is exposed.
Heck: today’s news is an RNS Reach, that is to say financially insignificant. But when your entire shareholder base makes a garden worm look like the late Bamber Gascoigne in the intelligence department ,that matters little, Supply@ME Capital (SYME) shares are up by 6% on the news.
There now seem to be serious peace talks in Ukraine with both sides, apparently, prepared to give a little to stop the bloodshed. I know too many folks are beating the war drums and bursting with pride every time a British missile takes out a Russian tank but they are mistaken as I explained in a podcast HERE. As a human being I pray for peace and an end to the killing. If there is peace all stocks will melt up, but especially the big caps.
I discuss those threats and at a company level I add commentary on Nightcap (NGHT), Cake Box (CBOX) Chill Brands (CHLL), Cellular Goods (CBX) and Supply@ME Capital (SYME)
I discuss with reference to Tulsi Gabbard, who I admire immensely, and Nigel Farage, who I don’t, what makes someone a Russian asset. Neither Nigel or Tulsi are but that won’t stop certain loons from saying they are. Then a bit more on dangerous fake news. Then I look at Pearson (PSON), Novacyt (NCYT), Nightcap (NGHT), Deepverge (DVRG), Chill Brands (FRAUD) and Supply@ME Capital (FRAUD).
Obviously I do hope Chelsea goes bust and is docked 500 points and finds itself playing next season in the National League so allowing two clubs to be promoted which might just include Wrexham. But what is happening to the Abramovitch sets a dangerous precedent. I discuss this with reference to Evraz (EVR). I look at Parsley Box (MEAL) and the role of certain institutional investors and also FinnCrap (FCAP) in some detail. I predict Parsley will go bust by the autumn notwithstanding today’s dishonest bailout. I look at Oxford Cannibinoid (OTCP) and the growing scandal there and also comment on Eurasia (EUA), then at Chill Brands (CHLL) and that other Standard Listed fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME). I discuss Summerway Capital (SWC) and Argo Blockchain (ARB) but I start with a parents dilemma.
Supply@ME Capital (SYME) shares are up by more than 50% at time of writing this article at 0.1025p with the rumour mill implying huge revenues were just around the corner at Tradeflow Capital. The announcement that Tradeflow had cumulatively financed over $1 billion of commodity trade up from $750 million the previous quarter was what seems to have promoted the buying frenzy.
I am shortly off to Tesco then will be in action as the family cook. Ahead of that I look at Deepverge (DVRG) run by the arse Gerry Brandon, wondering which will come first, the next trading warning or the next bailout placing, at Mirriad (MIRI) where I disagree with comrade Stacey, Amigo (AMGO), Chill Brands (CHLL), Jubilee Metals (JLP), Supply@ME Capital (SYME), Cellular Goods (CBX), oil, gold and Ukraine and finally at Argo Blockchain’s (ARB) latest news.
The gardening photos from the Welsh hovel will appear later on my own site. Before then I review the 4 retail stocks of the Lucian Miers apocalypse: Versarien (VRS), Supply@ME Capital (SYME), Eurasia (EUR) and Chill Brands (CHLL) and then my 10 stocks to collapse by Christmas. One has fallen so far it is probably not a short now though I would not buy it while three look set to go to zero, possibly as soon as next week in one case. My 10 are Supply, Chill Brands, Versarien, Avacta (AVCT), Wildcat Petroleum (WCAT), Amigo (AMGO), Cineworld (CINE), Argo Blockchain (ARB), Verditek (VDTK) and Tern (TERN). I also look at the oil price and consider whether those sitting on gains might bank a few profits.
I start with a look at wider stockmarket sell offs in the UK, US and especially Germany and what we – who will all be down – should be doing about it. I warn that if you go full bear you could be burned when most shares spike or rebound as will happen at some point. I comment specifically on the frauds Chill Brands (CHLL) and Supply@ME Capital (SYME) and on Ukranian hookers and fake news and also on Ten Lifestyle (TENG). And I discuss pen Orphan (ORPH) vs Braveheart (BRH), the saintly Cathal Friel vs the spiv chancer Trevor Brown. It is all to do with returning capital or not.
The only weakness in the bear case against Supply@ME Capital (SYME) , the only thing that made me doubt, if not for long, that it was a slam dunk fraud was its October appointed chairman Jim Coyle who had a creditable CV and looked utterly kosher. Today he quit with immediate effect. Chairman do not walk out after just a smidgeon over four months unless there is something horribly wrong.
When Mr Leo Malkin of Crowe UK performs his audit of the fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME) he will be required to perform an audit of the accounting for the acquisition of sub scale asset manager Tradeflow Capital including the valuation of the assets and liabilities acquired and the fees paid to its advisers. I have helpfully set out below some questions he should be asking. If he doesn’t I shall be asking the FRC to investigate his conduct. I have flagged this matter up with the FRC already.
Today is another day and another month where the fraud that is Supply@ME Capital (SYME) has paid back a portion of what it termed a loan but was clearly a death spiral by issuing another 489 million shares to Mercator. Okay, £500,000 repaid only £5.6 million to go and with the shares trending ever lower that will require an utter blizzard of new shares for Mercator to forward sell. But that is not the end of the dilution.
I start with events in Ukraine and offer a few thoughts. But I also look at a few companies notably Eurasia Mining (EUA), Versarien (VRS), ADVFN (AFN) – one of which is, I think, a buy – and also, en passant, the fraud that is Supply@ME Capital (SYME) and in the context of bitcoin tanking, Argo Blockchain (ARB).
Under the Mercator death spiral, the fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME) has received £7 million of cash and has to repay £7.7 million. For the first three tranches of the 12 monthly repayments, Supply – cash strapped as it is- has opted to convert the loan repayments into a convertible loan which Mercator has then converted into shares which it has sold. The continued lack of credible positive news (as opposed to ramptastic announcements) coupled with continual shares sales by Mercator has resulted in the conversion price continually dropping as indicated in the table below:
If this podcast arrives too late they did not. All is explained in the actual recording brought to you from the land of the bedwetters, Wales, as there is abit of wind and rain. In the Bearcast I look at Shield Therapeutics (STX) – a stand out short where the share price collapse is only just starting – UK Oil & Gas (UKOG), Oxford Cannabinoid (OCTP) and the fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME).
In a long podcast I explain why the climate has changed so making it a year for the bears and then explain the common thread and individual reasons for my top ten shorts for Christmas 2022. The terrible ten are Supply@ME Capital (SYME), Tern (TERN), Avacta (AVCT), Versarien (VRS), Chill Brands (FRAUD), Amigo (AMGO),Cineworld (CINE), Argo Blockchain (ARB), Verditek (VDTK) and Wildcat Petroleum (WCAT)
The supply chain crisis triggered by governmental responses to COVID 19 has led to a massive focus on supply chains and efficient financing of those supply chains. The acquisition of Taulia by SAP a $920 billion dollar market capitalisation business and the launch of Eliant Inventory Solutions backed by Apollo (a private equity giant) partnered with BNP Paribas and GEP a major supply chain specialist show that the financial sector is now actively mobilising to take advantage of these opportunities.
On 25 August 2021, Aquis lobster pot listed Eight Capital Partners (ECP) announced that it purchased €40 million of 2.5% Fixed Rate Secured Bonds at par value from IWEP Limited, a company controlled by ECP’s Chairman, Mr Dominic White. So what you say? Read on for what has happened since shows how the Supply@ME Capital (SYME) con is unravelling
Over a month has passed since the fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME) issued its 31 December 2021 trading update promising inventory monetisation revenue was due shortly. In January 2022 the sole RNS was the notification of the issue of 594 million shares in respect of the December loan note repayment. I suppose it all depends on what you mean by “shortly.”
I start with the University of Chester and despair. Then a win for the bears, well done Fraser. Then I look at Nanosynth (NNN), Advance Energy (AVD), Omega Diagnostics (ODX), Supply@ME Capital (FRAUD), Chill Brands (LIARS) and the GM called to sack Clem Chambers at ADVFN (AFN)
Each working day, Mercator, the provider of two death spirals to the fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME) needs to offload c£20,000 worth of shares on to the muppets who think that they are going to get rich catching this particular falling knife. In a bull market when folks are prepared to overlook obvious lies and fraudulent results, that is not hard but we are not now in a bull market.
I start considering where I was ten years ago and where I am on my 54th Birthday today. Sorry if I sound a bit smug but I reckon I have every right to. Then I look at 3 stocks to own if you want to end up living in social housing: Supply@ME Capital (SYME), Bidstack (BIDS) and Frontier Developments (FDEV).
It appears that the cash strapped fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME) has drawn down the additional £2 million available under the Mercator loan (no sniggering at the back) facility without explicitly announcing this material new “loan” advance via an RNS. I guess following LSE rules about material disclosures is only for “little people.”
Fingers crossed. If it is what I have been promised it is curtains for one CEO. In the rest of the bearcast I discuss travails with brickies, M&C Saatchi (SAA) and the saintly Vin Murria, Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV),Cellular Goods (CBX),Tern (TERN),ADM Energy (ADME), Supply@ME Capital (FRAUD), Tiger Resources (TIR),UK Oil & Gas (UKOG), Argo Blockchain (ARB) and the changing appetite for bailout placings.
Having asked for readers tips for 2021 for the prize of 1/2 litre of Tom Winnifrith’s Greek Hovel olive oil (2021 harvest) HERE, the following is the competition result (to be eligible needed to have selected, on a once per username basis, a buy & sell pick from the LSE or AIM casino and the stocks not to have been suspended at the commencement of 2021)… And the winner is…
I hope you have a Happy New Year’s Eve. I aim to be in bed by 8 PM. Bah Humbug. In today’s podcast I look at URU Metals (URU), Lansdowne Oil & Gas (LOGP), Path Investments (PATH), Kore Potash (K2P) and the fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME) and today’s red flag dripping trading statement. I also explain why I expect the oil price to go higher over the coming year.
I discuss the arrests made on 29 December in the USA and why the FCA should look at some of the activities of folks in the UK small cap world. Case studies include Eurasia Mining (EUA) and Chill Brands (CHLL). I then move on to Supply@ME Capital (SYME) and its news today, Wildcat Petroleum (WCAT) and also Verditek (VDTK), which I reckon is a zero for 2022 but since it can’t be shorted is not one of my tips of the year. To JP, sorry I have no idea why Peel Hunt quit as broker to Bushveld (BMN) but I suspect it gave three months notice. Leaving SP Angel as sole broker can’t be seen as good news. It is like firing our beloved West Ham as joint broker to retain the sole services of Chesterfield Town.
When you look over the 30 most-read stories of 2021, what jumps out? Fraud busting. There are one or two tips thrown in there but what ShareProphets readers really sink their teeth into is the ShareProphets team digging into the accounts and showing up the wrong ‘uns. The author of all of the top 30 articles is….
I doubt that this poster will be challenging the wonderful Rachel Riley on Countdown. If you are bored over the Christmas break and can’t get enough thrills from watching my Great Aunt in the Sound of Music try to find any comment on any Bulletin Board more moronic than the one below, from the LSE asylum Supply@ME Capital (SYME thread natch. Post your entries in the comments section below. The deadline is midnight on Boxing Day.
In today’s podcast, I reflect on yesterday’s family meal in Shipston, then look at Central Copper Resources and Red Rock Resources (RRR), folks may believe in Santa but do they still believe in Andrew Bell? Then I consider Tern (TERN), PCF Group (PCF) and the fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME) and I urge you to enter Nigel’s sweepstake HERE before midnight. Finally I have along look at Vast Resources (VAST).
AIM “starlet” PCF Group (PCF) has finally published its long delayed annual report for the year ended 30 September 2020. The company’s shares remain suspend at the present time. The strategic report indicates that “a number of items have caused a reduction to profit before tax of approximately £7 million for the twelve months to 30 September 2020, compared with the preliminary results published in December 2020”. The preliminary results recorded a profit before tax of £2.1 million so it’s a massive change.
I start with my personal experience of the NHS today and how much I’d like to see all GPs lined up againat a wall and shot. I am so bloody angry. Then it is onto Union Jack Oil (UJO), Chill Brands (CHLL), Tern (TERN), the fraud Supply@ME Capital (FRAUD) and Hurricane Energy (HUR)
In today’s podcast, I discuss Christmas cheeses past and present, Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV), Guild E-Sports (GILD), Boohoo (BOO), Ince Group (INCE) Supply@ME Capital (SYME) and Eurasia Mining (EUA).
Supply@ME Capital (SYME) has been forced by Companies law to call a GM where it can explain to shareholders its historic serious loss of capital and what it is going to do about it. Its reponse so far has been risible, claiming that revenues will go up next year. This from a company that has had to slash sales forecasts it put into the market for 2021 to almost nothing in two slashes since July. But there is a more serious issue: impending insolvency. I have written to the FCA, the regulator — no sniggering at the back — in charge of the Standard List.
Recorded from my new studio, that is to say a hired car in Greece, I start with olive harvest news then move onto Versarien (VRS), Supply@ME Capital (SYME), Guild eSports (GILD) and Argo Blockchain (ARB). Natch you’d be bonkers to own any of these four stocks.
The top non-Tom article this week is The ShareProphets Sunday Pub Quiz #117 by your truly at number 12 or number 18 if you include the Bearcasts.
On September 29 2021 the fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME) issued an RNS titled “New £7 million Loan Note Facility completed”. That was all a lie and we are now four days overdue on an RNS relating to it.
I write after a day in which shares rallied sharply after Friday’s big sell-off. That shakedown was on fears that the Botswana covid variant or rather the extreme over-reaction to it given the level of hospitalizations and deaths it has caused (0 & 0) could see corporate earnings hammered. I noted on Friday that the sell off was driven by a false fear. Surely even the lunatics in charge of the asylum we call Britain will soon have to accept that the Omicron (an anagram of moronic) variant is no great threat and thus the new lockdown measures will have to be reversed and thus the impact on PLC earnings will be trivial. One would hope so. That growing realisation that our leaders have blundered is what, one suspects, drove the rally.
In today’s podcast I discuss why I worry that my wife may have become a real housewife of posh Cheshire, not the part where they play rugby league. Then I look at ADM Energy (ADME) and that RNS reach issue again, tell you about a psychic moron who owns shares in Supply@ME Capital (SYME) and then I discuss, at length, Skinbiotherapeutics (SBTX) after a chat with CEO Stuart Ashman today and on the back of that I have bought more shares in the company.
I don’t expect the morons who own shares in this fraud are accounting geeks. So I shall try to make this very simple for them for Supply is finished.
In today’s podcast I look at Vast Resources (VAST) and why you should read an RNS closely and at Supply@ME Capital (SYME) as I get my dates confused and so, it seems, does it. I consider Eurasia Mining (EUA) – surely a statement needed. I look at Skinbiotherapeutics (SBTX) and at Amigo (AMGO) where surely even Evil must concede defeat at the hands of the FCA on whose side I am on, in this matter at least.
In the end frauds always run out of other people’s cash. It will be the same at Supply@ME Capital (SYME) and today’s Bearcast is a detailed analysis of just how bad its cash position has become. I also comment on ADM Energy (ADME) and wind damage to the slates here at the Welsh Hovel.
Quelle surprise. Who would have guessed it? The fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME), now almost out of cash and still burning cash, has elected to pay the remaining November amounts due under its Mercator death spiral – which at announced as being a loan - by issuing more shares rather than in cash. Calling this deal a “loan” was the least of the lies told by Supply But it was a lie. With the shares at 0.1525p Mercator will have already forward sold – see volumes in the past couple of days – the £300,000 of shares it received at 0.135p. But there is a bigger elephant in the room.
The triumphs for me are Globo (GBO) where the man who should know recognises my unique work and puts the FT’s snot gobbler in his place as the FCA swoop and SpectrumX and some real Tory sleaze exposed as it goes bust as advisers say its IPO is on track. Then I look at AO World (AO.) where almost all the writers here are vindicated and deserve an ouzo tonight (sparkling water for puritan Chris), and Harland & Wolff (HARL) – ouzo for Peter Brailey, cabbage water for Andrew Monk. Finally a few words on the lastest spoof from the fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME).
Eight Capital Partners (ECP) is blessed with having as its chairman Dominic White, one of the brains behind the Supply@ME Capital (SYME) fraud and until recently its chairman.It also has as its CEO David Bull whose accounting blunders have created a massive black hole at AIM Listed PCF (PCF) causing its shares to be suspended. Bull chairs the Audit Committee, no sniggering please, at Supply. And Eight is, via a complex structure enabling Supply boss Alessandro Zamboni to dump all his remaining shares in his Standard Listed scam. What’s not to like? Oh yes: Eight has fallen foul of the Companies Act.
Jim Coyle as a highly experienced finance Director would be acutely aware of the risks associated with related party transactions between the CEO of a public listed company and his private company interests and in this regard, I bring to his attention a few questions he should be posing at his next Board meeting about related party transactions between Supply@ME Capital (SYME) and companies run by CEO Alessandro Zamboni.
I start with the tale of the psychic PR man and Edge VCT. Then I look at Wildcat Petroleum (WCAT), Powerhouse Energy (PHE) and Supply@ME Capital (FRAUD). We live in a world that is truly bonkers. Then I ask if Avon Protection (AVON) shares have fallen too far on today’s, admittedly bad, news
I discuss what I should write in my weekend Tomograph: losing faith in the CofE or why is sleaze everywhere? That leads neatly onto inflation and that shock US data yesterday. Then I look at the fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME) where my vindication is complete, and which I can celebrate with vodka infused plum crumble, Volex (VLX), Manolete (MANO) and Feedback (FDBK)
I start with a few notes on horticulture here in Wales then move onto questioning my strongly held belief that Supply@ME Capital (SYME) is a worthless fraud. Then I explain why the recent Cenkos note on Skinbiotherapeutics (SBTX) is wrong and how, via its website, the company faces an acid test. Actually the website I refer to has now been amended as you can see HERE. But not before my contact placed an order. Finally I look at Vast Resources (VAST) and its shocking placing followed by even more shocking no-one is watching O’clock results.
We know from the RNS of 6 July 2021 that the fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME) valued the loss making, sub-scale, asset manager Tradeflow Capital at approximately £31 million and that approximately £7 million was paid upfront (£4 million in cash and £3 million in shares) which leaves approximately £24 million to be paid assuming that Tradeflow hits its revenue targets.
Shareholders in Supply@Me Capital Plc (SYME) have dual exposure to Mr. David Bull. The first is in his capacity as the Non-Executive Director and Audit Committee Chairman of Supply where his role is to exercise oversight and guidance over the financial reporting process and controls at the Group. The second is via his position as CEO of Eight Capital Partners (ECP) which holds an equity interest in Supply and is also lender to an Alessandro Zamboni corporate shareholder in Supply which is secured on Supply shares.
As I previously explained it appears that the timing of the Tradeflow Capital acquisition was conveniently timed to occur on 1 July 2021 because it meant that the £4 million cash outflow for the acquisition did not have to be reflected in interim balance sheet. It also enabled the fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME) to have another 6 months to draw up its consolidated balance reflecting the acquisition of loss making Tradeflow.
Chancer Allesandro Zamboni likes to promise a lot but is always having to make excuses for the continual delays in inventory monetisation at the fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME). In the AGM shareholder question and answer paper, the following question was raised about another FinTech business Taulia:
The whole team at ShareProphets has long been sceptical about the fraud that is Supply@ME Capital (SYME) and the excuses that CEO Alessandro Zamboni regularly trots out to explain the endless delays in inventory monetisation. Whilst some of the Bulletin Board Morons that have invested in this scam are slowly developing some sense of scepticism others simply swallow Alessandro’s latest bullshit explanation even when the excuse doesn’t stand up to even minor scrutiny. Take for instance the latest explanation for the non-purchase of the FinTech bank as set out in interim results of 30 September 2021 below:
Tomorrow, I shall tell you about a young man in despair, naming no names but what it says about this country. Today, I look at Powerhouse Energy (PHE) options and warrants, Zoltav Resources (ZOL), Sensyne (SENS), Supply@ME Capital (SYME), Parsley Box (MEAL), Deepverge (DVRG) and Chill Brands (CHLL).
In today’s podcast I look at a raft of utter triumphs for me as a bear: Rosslyn Data (RDT) – no longer run by a former pornographer – Supply@ME Capital (FRAUD), Chill Brands (CHLL), Braveheart Investment Management (BRH) and Parsley Box (PUKE).
So the directors now admit today that Supply@ME Capital (SYME) might go tits up. The new death spiral, is at a 30% interest rate suggesting its providers agree with the management. The company has lied repeatedly to investors, it will be out of cash by Christmas and is a fraud. Is there anything else not to like? Er…yes!
I shall turn to quite appalling interims issued this morning by Supply@ME Capital (SYME) later. Suffice to say, they are dire and anyone holding onto the shares is completely bonkers, But first, yesterday Supply announced it has received a new loan which was really a death spiral. But how expensive is this facility? I now explain why Supply has deceived investors, yet again.
The FCA is meant to regulate the Standard List of the LSE. Cripes it is not just at the back I hear sniggering, you are all laughing out loud. Please be serious and let us treat the FCA with the respect that it is due. Standard Listed Chill Brands (CHLL) has misled investors as to its trading position. What will the FCA do about it? I have written a letter this morning.
Supply@ME Capital (SYME) flagged up that this would happen a few weeks ago but today it has announced “New £7 million Loan Note Facility completed”. A loan as in you pay back the cash at the end of the term right? Er.. wrong. It is a death spiral.
It is hard to know where to start with the ludicrous announcements from Aquis Listed Eight Capital Partners (ECP) controlled by former Supply@ME Capital (SYME) boss Dominic White. But having seen the FCA overlook industrial scale fraud at Supply, in its capacity as , ahem, “regulator” of the Standard List, White says he is going to move Eight to the Standard List. Surely the FCA has to reject this application? Why?
I am up early thanks to a new nightmare. Can anyone interpret it? Are you out there Joseph? I then look at saint Vin Murria and Summerway Capital (SWC). Then I discuss Lucian Miers big Joe Retail toxic four (Chill Brands, Supply@ME Capital, Tern and Eurasia), why things are going his way, which will crack first and why and what the fallout will be. A regular bearcast will follow later.
The fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME) held its AGM on 3 July and it took until 16 September to provide responses to the questions raised by the morons who own its shares. Admittedly there were 182 questions but there was a large degree of overlap in the questions and Supply resorted to standard answers for many of the questions. For instance, 22 questions related to trading (numbers Q27, Q40, Q44, Q69, Q73, Q77, Q87, Q118, Q121, Q122, Q123, Q124, Q135, Q140, Q141, Q146, Q156, Q166, Q168, Q169, Q174, Q178) were answered with a one sentence reply essentially stating refer to revenue guidance. Similarly, 12 questions on Negma convertible loan note (Q67, Q82, Q83, Q95, Q96, Q97, Q112, Q120, Q125, Q126, Q161, Q172 were answered with the statement “The Company recently updated the market regarding the termination of the Negma arrangement.”
So far you have met the fraudster Queen, the other South Africans on the board who are mired in this fraud and an enabler, broker Pello and its boss Andy Frangos who are also deeply implicated in the Umuthi (UHS) bezzle and the patsy UK NED Colin Bloom - now since resigned. Then we established that nobody actually knows how many shares there are in issue. and finally we established that there is almost certainly no real business at Umuthi whatever it accounts state! And then we exposed the red flags over auditors and the enablers at Jeffreys Henry Earlier today I turned to the resignation of Memery Crystal. Next up is the UK’s regulator and why this episode, again, shows it to be not fit for purpose.
Oh dear, oh dear. Shares in PCF Group (PCF) which have been “temporarily” suspended since an accounting black hole emerged on 19 May look like they are going to be “temporarily” suspended a good bit longer. The AIM dog had said that the black hole in the September 30 2020 P&L was going to be less than £750,000. But today…
Yesterday I was reviewing Lucian Miers’ big 5 small cap shorts with the great bear over breakfast. Breakfast BTW was porridge with homemade stewed apples (from the Welsh Hovel) in cinnamon. In the podcast, I discuss last night’s culinary fare but then probe Lucian on what he sees as critical mid and end points for each of his 5 UK small cap big shorts: Tern (TERN), Versarien (VRS), Chill Brands (CHLL), Supply@ME Capital (SYME) and Eurasia Mining (EUA).
This really is Alice in Wonderland stuff. Sitting on the big mushroom is Dominic White, the ex-chairman of the Supply@ME Capital (SYME) fraud but also boss of Aquis listed Eight Capital Partners (ECP) whose last stated net assets were just £40,000. Now Supply promoter Zak Mir hands over the hookah to the dormouse. Please try to keep up.
The FCA needs urgently to take a look at the paid for research market. It seems anybody can enter and then can charge a fat fee for publishing whatever ramptastic shite they like. On Tuesday I cited the utter fiction produced by Proactive Investors on the Supply@ME Capital (SYME) fraud. Today I bring you one reason Eurasia Mining (EUA) shares roofed it yesterday, a report from ACF Equity Research, a company that cant publish its own accounts so why on earth should it be able to analyse those of anyone else?
Supply@ME Capital (SYME) may have a couple of new directors but that appears to have changed now! It still appears to take a delight in deceiving the morons who own its stock. Today it says that it has closed its death spiral facility with Negma and replaced it with a loan except that it is not a loan but another death spiral! And it gets worse.
I have, this morning, written to the FCA asking it to explain its failure to act on specific information provided to it on January 29 2021 about fraudulent accounting at Supply@ME Capital (SYME). Its failure to act meant that investors were deceived. This failure is one of so many and demonstrates just how useless the FCA has become. It went to the same folks in Market Integrity, including boss Mark Steward, who received the January 29 missive and acknowledged its receipt. It reads:
In today’s bearcast I look at Salt Lake Potash (SO4), MyHealthChecked (MHC), Supply@ME Capital (SYME), Chill Brands (CHLL) and Union Jack Oil (UJO) as well as at internet trolls who want me dead.
There is so much in today’s absolutely appalling trading statement from the fraud that is Supply@ME Capital (SYME) that I need to cover it in three parts. I kicked off with how Supply deceived the woke dullards at the FCA and investors with bogus revenues. Then there was the shocking misleading Proactive report now exposed as pure fiction. Now we turn to the actual trading…
The tweet below comes from a chap who joined twitter in May 2021 and has one follower and who is following one person. He calls me Squire which is a funny way of addressing me and suggests that he is a bit of an oik. His tweet is defamatory.
There is so much in today’s absolutely appalling trading statement from the fraud that is Supply@ME Capital (SYME) that I need to cover it in three parts. I kicked off with how Supply deceived the woke dullards at the FCA and investors by reporting bogus revenues. Now I move on to how it has helped generate liquidity for death spiral provider Negma with paid for research which is pure fiction.
There is so much in today’s absolutely appalling trading statement from the fraud that is Supply@ME Capital (SYME), that I need to cover it in three parts. I kick off with how the FCA ignored evidence from me and allowed Supply to get away with publishing bogus revenues, something it has today finally fessed up to.
It has just been brought to my attention that ADVFN has been hosting a (brief) thread dedicated to discussing my demise. It has been live since February 17 as you can see below. It’s only point is discussing my demise something spurred on by my exposes of and obtaining the suspension of, the fraud that is Supply@ME Capital (SYME). Does ADVFN really think that offering a platform to discuss such a matter is appropriate. Will it take firm action and not only can the thread but ban the sick mind who created it? I have asked the question of ADVFN Boss Mike Hodges this morning?
Two dogs, covered extensively on Shareprophets.com where i am short are leaving it rather late to come up with the goods. Chill Brands Group (CHLL), formerly Zoetic, has until Tuesday to publish its results to March 2021 (and that’s after a Covid extension) and Supply@Me Capital (SYME) has stated that a trading update is “expected” this month.
In today’s bearcast, I look at those failures in detail: Wildcat Petroleum (WCAT), Tirupati (TGR) where you might brace yourself for some language some may deem sexist and not very 2021, and Supply@ME Capital (SYME) where today’s extraordinary news really should alarm any holder. I also revisit Argo Blockchain (ARB) which has published its US listing prospectus HERE which I comment on. En passant, I look at share trading patterns in Versarien (VRS) and Chill Brands (CHLL) and what they tell us about sentiment in what were last year’s Bulletin Board darlings. They are just so 2020 aren’t they?
Dominic White stepped down as chairman of the fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME) on July 22 but is still involved in the company and the way CEO Alessandro Zamboni is dumping all the shares he controls. Today, White’s Aquis listed company Eight Capital Partners (ECP) has put out a release which is all about Supply shares but, for some reason, fails to name the company once. Suspicious? You bet.
Who is Negma the death spiral provider to the fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME). Negma probably thinks all its Christmas have come at once and cannot believe its luck being able to flog so many shares onto moronic mug punters thanks to a recent, utterly unjustified, rally? Well here are a series of remarkable coincidences for you to consider.
I start with a few reminiscences about how myself and George the Architect exposed the InternetQ fraud. Then I cover: Kefi (KEFI), Supply@ME Capital (SYME) and More Bull from it, Vast Resources (VAST), Purplebricks (PURP), Argo Blockchain (ARB), Verditek (VDTK) and Andrew Bell’s Red Rock Resources (RRR).
In between visits from two men called Nicho I look at Powerhouse Energy (PHE) & the green bandwagon of fear, Argo Blockchain (ARB), BlueJay Mining (JAY) and the fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME).
The top non-Tom article this week is Escape Hunt – John currently getting away with this ‘growth’ Story… but for how long? by Steve Moore at number eight or number 14 if you include the Bearcast and Tom’s new shareshow.
Ian Westbrook is now just £800 from making loathsome Neill Ricketts of Versarien (VRS) sweat in Court in January like the pig he is. Please keep those tenners, twenties and fifties coming in HERE. I look at today’s bombshell on the fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME) and explain why that makes it a slam dunk zero. Then it is Central Copper Resources where I am sending out numerous emails to get its AIM Sewer IPO strangled at birth.
Silence remains on whether the CEO of the fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME), Alessandro Zamboni has covertly sold all his shares. If I was him I would because, as I shall demonstrate below, its business model just cannot work. Forgive the deep drill on accounting but if you follow my lead you will see more evidence that Supply has misled investors and is a zero.
I look at the shock suspension of trading by the FCA of City broker Pello. I look at Braveheart Investment Management (BRH) and how Trevor Brown has made £7.5 million from pump and dump while mug punters have lost up to 85% on one pump and 60% on another. Finally, tomorrow will see an explosive dossier on the fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME). It is a zero. Meanwhile, Ian Westbrook has now raised £19,105 on the make loathsome Neill Ricketts of Versarien (VRS) sweat like a pig appeal. We need just £895 to hit target so keep those £10 and £20 donations coming HERE
I cannot see a reference to this on the Supply @ME Capital (SYME) website but some folk think it is 26% of the equity. I think it is 0% and following the posting of THIS document, it strikes me as important that the truth be known. If the CEO has dumped his entire holding, why would any sane investor own the stock? I have written to the FCA as you can see below.
I start with a discussion on the forest fires in this region of Greece then move onto the impending total humiliation of Julie “Lingerie on Expenses” Meyer after today’s shocker HERE. Then I look at Supply@ME Capital (SYME) asking if its boss owns any shares at all. He certainly does not own 26% as claimed. Then I look at the Optibiotix (OPTI) trading statement discussing it and Skinbiotherapeutics (SBTX). Finally back to a wretch: Versarien (VRS) and its shite results which show why we must get Ian Westbrook over the line – he is now, with a slightly extended deadline – just £1775 shy of making the loathsome Neill Ricketts sweat in court. Please keep giving those tenners and twenties HERE
While I was recording bearcast, Zoetic (ZOE) announced that since promising results in July on May 17 – by when it would already have done much of the audit work – it had discovered all about covid so would not now be releasing, what will be piss poor, results (for the year to March 31 2021) until this month. Good news travels fast, bad news is delayed. The real reason for the delay is explained in this podcast. I also cover discussions with the regulators on UK Oil & Gas (UKOG), Supply@ME Capital (SYME), the John Story episode and getting the shyster resigned from Escape Hunt (ESC). I speculate on what he did next. And there is a final appeal for Ian Westbrook. Do not let the loathsome pig Neill Ricketts win by default, please donate HERE
You may remember the Equities First Holdings (EFH) scandal which we did so much to expose? Fine chaps like the fraudster Rob Terry of Quindell (QPP) would take out a loan at a big discount to the value of shares pledged. They did not care as they knew the shares were way overvalued. The “lender,” EFH, would dump the stock at once so locking in a profit and when the shares fell a bit more the borrower would default. Easy! How to dump your entire holding in a worthless company while saying you were not. A document filed at Companies House, below, but natch not admitted to via RNS suggests the CEO of the fraud Supply@ME Capital Alessandro Zamboni has (again) been reading the Rob Terry playbook.
First up, thanks for all the tenners for Ian Westbrook. We still have two days to hit the £20,000 make loathsome Neill Ricketts sweat target and are now on £14,694. We are still talking to two potentially generous donors so please do keep the tenners flowing HERE to stop the Versarien (VRS) penny share huckster winning by default. Then onto lying on AIM and also covering up bad news with late releases. I look at Supply@ME Capital (SYME), Verditek (VDTK), Powerhouse Energy (PHE), Cellular Goods (CBX), Escape Hunt (ESC) and, of course, the fraud Zoetic (ZOE). The stench of chumocracy corruption is rife in the City as liars go unpunished. It is most depressing.
An early podcast as Joshua and I are off exploring for an old bridge and a back road to Orova shortly. In today’s bearcast, I look at Predator Oil & Gas (PRD) – a cause for extra ouzo tonight as Ron Pilbeam gets the order of the boot after my missive to the FCA – at new IPO Spinnaker Acquisitions (SPAQ) which looks like an overpriced nest of vipers and finally at the fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME) whose RNS today is just complete and utter bollocks.
If this is not a sign to sell all your shares I do not know what is. The list of rogues with zero experience of managing money but who are veterans of ramping penny share frauds and promotes who are involved here is such a massive red flag. Lift Ventures was set up with £50,000 from the paid for penny stock ramping site LSE Share Talk on 13 May. The lead director who, it appears, will be managing its investments is Zak Mir who has never managed other folks money in his life bar the generous handouts he got from his parents as pocket money when at Harrow.
Forgive the crude title or love it if you are Matthew and his dog. I could not resist. I start with a discussion of the tyranny of village facebook pages prompted by my latest spat with some villagers of Holt in Wales HERE. Then I look at Kefi (KEFI), Zoetic (ZOE), Kanobo (KNB), Supply@ME Capital (SYME), Block Energy (BLOE) and the bitcoin pump by America’s Neil Woodford and others. Ian Westbrook is now at just under £12,000 and has ten days to reach £20,000 to see the loathsome Neill Ricketts at the next stage. To call the bluff of the Versarien (VRS) bully, please donate HERE. PS Darren points out it is the 26th not the 27th. He is correct.
In my article of 22 July, I revealed the piss poor CV of David Bull, the new Non-Executive Director for Supply@ME Capital (SYME). In the career summary issued via the RNS, he managed to omit key facts such as his close links to outgoing Chairman Dominic White (in his capacity as a Non-Executive Director of Dominic White’s Eight Capital Partners Plc) and his prior role as CFO of now suspended AIM share PCF Group Plc (PCF) caused by a number of deficiencies in PCF’s financial control and reporting function.
During the early months of this year Zak Mir was the hero of numerous bulletin boards but notably those for Supply@ME capital (SYME) and remote Monitored Systems (RMS) for his almost non stop buy calls and ludicrous price targets. By contrast in calling out Supply as a fraud and Remote as an overvalued POS, I was the villain of the tale. With shares in both companies heading south at a rate of knots I invite you to consider the cartoon below and offer up suitable captions in honour of my good pal the Sith Lord. Post away in the comments section below. Do your worst.
I shall explain why and what tomorrow. But I eat my own pudding in that I believe the recent sell off in small caps offers opportunity. But for some companies, notably those with funding issues, it could be very bad news. I discuss Supply@ME Capital (SYME), its director Mr Bull and its mother of all death spirals, Remote Monitored Systems (RMS) where the cash, its only asset of value, is disappearing fast and Versarien (VRS) where I urge you to back Ian Westbrook TODAY as its 2 death spirals really start to bite. I also comment on Predator Oil & Gas (PRD) which looks to be a can of worms and Loop Up (LOOP) where maybe I am just a bit dim but isn’t it pointless?
It was on July 1 that Evil Banksta sent me a job advert for the non exec chairmanship at Supply@ME Capital (SYME) asking me if I was thinking of applying. With no wish to add chairing a fraud to my CV I declined but I assumed that Supply had already announced that Dominic White was off. Schoolboy error!
First up, would you rather listen to Joshua on Dinosaurs than to me on shares tomorrow? He thinks he is the world’s greatest expert but perhaps we should see how he fares on the Sunday quiz if Darren yields to his demands and has some dinosaur questions in it first? In today’s podcast, I look at the FCA’s new business plan, at ADVFN (AFN) and why Yair Tauman need to put up or shut up, at Online Blockchain (OBC), Supply@ME Capital (SYME), Seed Ventures (SEED – in detail – and en passant the fraud Zoetic (ZOE) and Orcadian (ORCA) which I backed pre IPO and which Peter Brailey writes up HERE.
Happy Bastille Day to our listeners in France. Here another day of swimming and cooking for guests. In today’s podcast, I look at Verditek (VDTK) and the latest missive from Gollum, the investment whores at Proactive, the fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME) & its death spiral and finally more thoughts on today’s Winnileaks special on MC Saatchi and what it says about the useless FCA when it comes to tackling white-collar crime. Finally a few words with Cliff Weight of ShareSoc re Financial Promotions.
Joshua and I are back, at last. It is all my fault, he was very understanding although he blamed me. In today’s podcast I explain this and then look at Morrison’s (MRW), Zoetic (ZOE) and Supply@ME Capital (SYME).
The first non-Tom article on the leaderboard is 5 Slam-Dunk Sells for 2021 – June Update as the Madness Continues by Nigel Somerville, at number seven or number 13 if you include the Bearcast and Tom’s new shareshow. Which one is the best of the week? Tell me in the comments.
I start with logistical issues. Thanks to Andrew Bell and Red Rock Resources (RRR), I need to find another hat to eat on video. This may take a while but I am a man of my word. I discuss Red Rock and why Bell has let me down. I end with a picture of where I was at lunchtime with Joshua celebrating today’s personal triumph re Eden Research and KPMG. Then I look at Verditek (VDTK) where surely the FCA or the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation must act now. Today’s news begs more questions for the AIM Shit of the year 2012-20, Richard Gill, aka Gollum. Then onto Hurricane Energy (HUR), Wildcat Petroleum (WCAT) and Eight Capital Partners (ECP) part of the Supply@ME Capital (SYME) swamp.
In today’s bearcast from myself and Joshua who I am having to bribe to be quiet, I look at Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV), TrakM8 (TRAK), more smoke and mirrors from the fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME) and the joys of watching tonight’s football here in Greece with my friend Nicho the Communist and the rest of a village where the Hun are not wildly popular.
If you were not convinced that Supply@ME Capital (SYME) was a con by my analysis of yesterday’s results HERE, how about a second dose? We already know that the March 2020 Prospectus for Supply contained materially inaccurate financial information in respect of the balance sheet because it stated that the unaudited proforma statements of net assets were £226 million which included £224 million of intangible assets. In the interim accounts for the period ended 30 June 2020, shareholders discovered that there were only £1 million of net assets which included intangible assets of £1 million caused by an incorrect accounting treatment adopted in the Proforma Financial Information. But we now know it is even worse.
The headline results of Supply@ME Capital (SYME) were, as I predicted, piss poor: revenue was a mere £1,147,000 and the loss for the year was £2,964,000. The balance sheet shows net liabilities of £452,000 and net current liabilities of £1,332,000.
I start with an update on life at the Greek Hovel. I am contemplating a long road trip for myself and Joshua to the far North this week. More on that later. Pro tem a few thoughts on Supply@Me Capital (SYME), Hurricane Energy (HUR) and Tern (TERN).
I start with l’affaire Hancock and what it says about standards in public life, whether politics or the corporate world in Britain today. For three reasons, not including the fact that he is useless or the act of infidelity, he should be fired. He will not be. I then consider late results with reference to Ariana (AAU) and the fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME) which is now – perhaps – just three working days from slipping down the plughole leading to the sewer of insolvency.
For a death spiral to work, your shares need to be trading. If they are suspended, you cannot run a spiral. And without its recently arranged death spiral, Supply@ME Capital (SYME) and its soon to be bought sub scale loss-making fund manager Tradeflow go bust as they have no cash and are both burning cash. Hey ho. The shares could be suspended as soon as next Thursday morning. The reason?
On 7 June 2021, Eden Research (EDEN) issued an RNS titled “Notice of AGM, investor conference & Accounts” which included the following statements:
The fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME) has now postponed its results four times and still they are not out. The mugs who own this stock should be panicking. Firms delay results for two reasons:
The most read non-Tom article is NMCN – refinancing discussions to address “working capital”. Really?… by Steve Moore at number four, or number seven including Bearcasts and Tom’s new shareshow. Which one is the best of the week? Tell me in the comments.
I start with a morning spent cleaning up Joshua’s attic, a picture of which and of the Mrs looking stunning as she claims the credit is HERE. Then it is onto the fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME), Bidstack (BIDS) and Optibiotix (OPTI).
How do you know if the fraudsters at Supply@ME Capital (SYME) are lying in an RNS or financial report? Simple. If there is a “y” in the day, Supply is lying. It lied about its net assets in its RTO document, repeatedly lied about its sales pipeline, lied about its sales in 1 RNS and 2 interim reports and lied about so much else. And here is another lie exposed yesterday. I have written to the FCA which has already suspended the shares once.
Death spiral providers take no view on whether a company is good, bad, honest or dishonest as long as there is liquidity in the shares so it can dump who cares? Thus the cash guzzling fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME) says it has secured a £5.6 million death spiral. And it seems as if once the initial tranche of shares is dumped Supply/Negma can repeat up to nine more times. Talk about a rolling maul of selling pressure!
I start with a request to you all, to help me nail some villains. Please can you send THIS OUTSIDE PAYWALL ARTICLE to all your twitter, instagram, facebook etc accounts. I then look at the frauds Zoetic International (ZOE) and Supply@ME Capital (SYME), as well as Best of the Best (BOTB) which is not a fraud but is a stock that for three reasons I would not touch with a bargepole.
When you lie about your net assets, your revenues and your sales pipeline as the fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME) has done on an industrial scale then almost anything you say must be viewed with extreme scepticism. And that brings us to the company’s oft delayed and still awaited results.
The most interesting fact this week is the Sunday Pub Quiz is #4. The most read non-Tom non-Darren article is The View from the Montana Log-Cabin as Gold stalls by Nigel Somerville at number 24, or number 31 including Bearcasts and Tom’s new shareshow. Which one is the best of the week? Tell me in the comments.
I start with ITM Power (ITM) where I just don’t understand pipeline valuation and definitions and the valuation is absurd. But then green is where the zeitgeist is. Not coal which brings me onto the lies and reality at Plutus Powergen (PPG). I look at the fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME) and Alien Metals (UFO) and the more general issue of related party deals after today’s expose on this website.
Mark Kavanagh, formerly “Head of Product Risk” - no sniggering at the back – with the collapsed Greensill Capital, now under FCA investigation has sent us an email after I highlighted his new job at Supply@ME Capital (SYME). Mark is a tight-fisted poltroon and asks that we send him the article for free. Mark clearly thinks he should not pay £1.99 for a day pass. Mark: do you work for free or are you paid vast sums to control risk at lenders that collapse?
In today’s podcast, I look at Alien Metals (UFO), have a lot more thoughts on Kefi (KEFI) where I agree with PL’s plan to align Harry Adams’ interests with ours as shareholders and have urged the company to consider it, at Supply@ME Capital (SYME) and at NightCap (NGHT), the financial creation of La Willingham.
The morons are delighted as Supply@ME Capital (SYME) has announced a new hire: Mark Kavanagh who is to be the new “Head of Operations and Transformation. And his prior role…
Be warned, the video at the bottom of this article is toe-curling.
Ms Amy Benning is scheduled to be appointed as the Chief Financial Officer of Supply:ME Capital (SYME) with effect from 7 June 2021 according to an RNS of 1 April 2021. Assuming it wasn’t an April fool or her appointment isn’t subject to delays (like almost everything else at this joke company) then I set out below a number of questions she should ask before she, as a director of the company, attends the Board meeting and approves the accounts for the year ended 31 December 2020. As the CFO her neck will be on the block.
I start with my utter revulsion at Neil Woodford after today’s expose HERE – can anyone be in any doubt now that he is a truly evil and morally bankrupt individual? I end with a brief correction regarding Britain’s thirstiest share blogger. In between, I look at Rosslyn Data (RDT), Supply@ME Capital (SYME), Eurasia Mining (EUA), Kefi (Kefi) and MyHealthchecked (MHC).
The fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME) first stated that it would announce the work of fiction that is its calendar 2020 results in April. But on April 23, that became May. On May 26, that became next week (i.e. this week). And today it is er…next week again. As they say, good news travels fast…
It seems that Britain’s thirstiest share blogger Paul Scott has had another go at me with a post at 25 minutes after midnight. I trust Paul had enjoyed a good night. Anyhow, I put him straight with a few facts. I then look at Argo Blockchain (ARB) and its trading statement and valuation, Plutus Powergen (PPG), Tern (TERN), Supply@ME Capital (SYME) and Cineworld (CINE).
That is a fair question and I explain why they almost always do but why one in particular is opting not to do so. In this podcast, I cover Bidstack (BIDS), Supply@ME Capital (SYME) and Zoetic (FRAUD).
The fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME) says that its calendar 2020 results will be out next week. Let’s hope auditor Crowe UK has boned up on IFRS or it could be in the merde with the FRC. And Supply has given more details of its proposed acquisition of TradeFlow Capital as it has now moved from an MOU to signing a share purchase agreement. Sadly, the latter is all smoke and mirrors.
The most read non-Tom article is Bacanora is trading at a big discount to the cash offer price, is it worth buying? by Gary Newman at number five, or number 13 including Bearcasts and Tom’s new shareshow. Which one is the best of the week? Tell me in the comments.
It’s a personally difficult day as I explain. But at least we have great news on the Rogue Bloggers for Woodlarks front as you can see HERE. Then I discuss shares, ref Tern (TERN), Quindell (QPP) and the fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME).
Good news travels fast, bad news is always delayed and that brings us to the delays from Supply@ME Capital (SYME) in buying the loss-making, sub-scale, Singapore-based joke fund manager Tradeflow and in publishing its results.
The most read non-Tom article is Recently listed Caerus Mineral Resources can make rapid progress following its deal with Jubilee Metals by Gary Newman at number 10, or number 17 including Bearcasts and Tom’s new shareshow. Which one is the best of the week? Tell me in the comments.
There are a lot of disgraceful things happening today and so this is a long bearcast and Matthew and his Dog will enjoy it. In it, I cover: the fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME), the Zoetic (ZOE) fraud, the utter shocker at Live Company (LVCG), where Fatty covers himself in shame, Sarah Willingham’s Nightcap (NGHT), a gotcha! for me but more smoke and mirrors and valuation anomalies from Ms W and finally Braveheart Investment Management (BRH). In the excitement, I forgot to mention uber dog Bidstack (BIDS) which is now down to its last seven weeks cash and where a bailout placing must be imminent. If you enjoyed today’s show, how about backing the Rogue Bloggers HERE?
My good friends at the FRC have launched investigations into a number of companies as a result of my work, oft agreeing with my assessment of accounting malpractice and on a good number of occasions forcing them to restate results. The most recent thank you note from the FRC arrived just last week. I have today written to the FRC asking it to force Supply@ME Capital (SYME) to restate two sets of interims which are fraudulent and breach IFRS rules and to ensure that forthcoming, but delayed, prelims do not repeat the same crime. The letter follows.
Yesterday twitter was buzzing with shareholders in Supply@ME Capital (SYME) trolling me and attacking me about this article which they clearly had not even read. That is double evidence of how dumb they are. But in case you think it is just me who gets this sort of low grade trolling, check out these tweets sent late last week to Fraser Perring, the bear who exposed Wirecard and is now sticking it to Grenke AG. I often wonder if ther wife’s of folks who send such tweets have any idea what their other half’s are up to and such despicable morons they think such behaviour will actually protect their investments in duff companies?
Yesterday, I established that the revenues booked and boasted about by the fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME) were fantasy. Not my thoughts about Cheryl Cole fantasy, but the stuff of real make believe. So if revenues do not really exist, how come Supply has not suffered a crash landing in tits up alley yet? Read on…
As ever, I urge the 95% of bearcast listeners yet to donate to give today to Rogue Bloggers for Woodlarks. Now I must warn you that Matthew and his dog may not approve of this podcast, nor will the FCA as - in light of today’s expose - I discuss its role in enabling the Supply@ME Capital (SYME) fraud. I discuss the failings of the standard list and also why the end of lockdown will see more businesses go bust and I explain why the fine details of revenue recognition are not – as folks like Zak Mir seem to think – accounting porn for Geeks but really do matter.
This is so simple that even the woke dullards at the FCA should be able to understand it. If you delve into the geeky world of IFRS you will see why Supply@ME Capital (SYME) cannot have booked any sales at all in calendar 2020. That makes its September 28 2020 RNS claimed booked revenues of £2.2 million and its interim results published on January 29 2021 claiming H1 sales of £386,000 also a lie. Directors have dumped millions of pounds worth of shares at prices inflated by those lies which makes this a fraud. So here, for chatroom and regulatory morons, is a detailed explanation of IFRS and what is going to happen next.
Okay, this is all about maths and voting at yesterday’s, quite possibly illegal, 2019 AGM held by the fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME). Follow the logic thread below and then decide whether it is answer a, b or c?
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.
You may remember that the, now technically insolvent, fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME) forgot to hold an AGM for calendar 2019 and only called one for April 30 2021 after I raised this as an issue. But is this AGM itself illegal? I have repeatedly asked the company’s PR man Mr Paul Vann 2 questions and still he refuses to answer.
I comment on St George’s Day HERE. In a long podcast, I look at Versarien (VRS), Audioboom (BOOM) – misleading again – Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV), Bitcoin and Argo Blockchain (ARB), Bahamas Petroleum (BPC) and the fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME). And we are now just three hundred quid shy of £14,000 for Rogue Bloggers for Woodlarks, please donate HERE.
Oh dear, oh dear. Excuses are like arseholes. We all have them but nobody cares. And natch the fraud Supply@ME Capital (SYME) has excuses as to why calendar 2020 accounts have been delayed but they do not stack up.
