It helps when shorting a company’s shares to have a tailwind and there are few more favourable tailwinds than if that company is resorting to death spiral finance. This desperate measure tells you that all normal financing options are closed to it and that realising cash at punitive and dilutive rates is the only way to survive. The reality of death spiral financing is so grim that it is little wonder that many companies attempt to obfuscate it by hoodwinking investors into thinking that the finance provider is an institution willing to invest in their shares…

To misquote Mark Antony: “I come not to bury Caesar, but to praise him”. Yesterday morning, it was announced that the odious boss of Versarien (VRS), Neill Ricketts, had sold 1.65 million shares at 53.919p. Normally you would expect me to say this was yet another red flag. But on this occasion, I do not.

The results were so shockingly bad that it is hard to see why Versarien (VRS) bothered to mislead investors. But it did and in a material way and thus I have written to the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation to flag this up and suggesting that odious Neill Ricketts and his disgraced Nomad, SP Angel of the fraud MySquar infamy, be forced to restate reissue a corrected version. The letter is below.

I have today been distracted by rising flood waters which you can see here and which I start the podcast discussing. Then it is onto Supply@ME Capital (SYME), Versarien (VRS), Argo Blockchain (ARB), Remote Monitored Systems (RMS) and Westminster Group (WSG).

You would need a Nomad without any morals whatsoever to sign off on junk like this. Luckily Versarien (VRS) employs SP Angel of the fraud MySquar infamy so that’s alright then. These, delayed, numbers for the six months to 30 September 2020 are just piss poor, and also deceptive.

I start on the Greek Albanian border in the 1970s. Then it is onto the dotcom boom in 2000 and bitcoin now and the idea of Institutional acceptance and validation. Then it is onto Versarien (VRS) and Supply@ME Capital (SYME).

Have I judged Oisin Fanning of San Leon (SLE) by a different standard to, say, Neill Ricketts of Versarien (VRS)? Sure. Would I not judge, for instance, Cheryl Cole by a different standard in the looks department than, say, Diane Abbott? Yes I would. And I bet Cheryl is also better at singing, counting and more or less everything else than Ms Abbott too. Management is key to it all in the world of investing as I discuss today.

Before we get to the most read articles, I’d like to point out my tip of the year 2021. Before you dismiss it as the ravings of a scoffer, I’d like to point out my 2020 Share Tip of the Year was Flutter (FLTR). You could have been in at 9,300p and it’s 15,110p today. My 2017 UK Investor Show tip was an eight bagger (It was Versarien (VRS), still doubled if you held it to today), and my 2018 UK Investor Show tip, Red Rock Resources (RRR), also doubled if you held it to today. And as long as you didn’t count IOMart (IOM), which I also recommended last year, you would have been quids in. Watch for my new paid newsletter on ADVFN, Random Hot Coin Flips for only £25 per month, available on the first day of the second quarter.

How many letters have I written to the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation about the lies and market abuse committed by Versarien (VRS)? To their credit, the Oxymorons have, on a number of occasions, forced Versarien to issue a new RNS fessing up to various ghastly truths so they do heed my words sometimes. Anyhow, Versarien has told another porky today and so I have written again.

Notwithstanding the receipt of an illegal Government loan from Neill Rickett’s Tory chums and the fact that it had one massive death spiral from Lanstead in place, the cash position of Versarien (VRS) has – as oft predicted here – become so grim that it has had to set up another death spiral to keep the lights on. There is also another daft acquisition which will only add to the cashburn and naturally all this bad news is wrapped up in a grotesquely misleading release which only a Nomad as bent as SP Angel, of the fraud MySquar infamy, could have signed off on.
