Who's followed the likes of Geong International and co in 'Geong, Geong' and then Gone? Who's in the 'Geong, Geong' stage and what does the 'Filthy Forty' look like now?...
Another month, another set of de-listing developments amongst the (few) remaining ShareProphets China AIM 'Filthy Forty'. Who's next to follow the likes of Geong International and co in 'Geong, Geong' and then Gone?...
Since our previous update, ZAI Corporate Finance has had its nominated adviser status removed - causing further issues amongst the (few) remaining ShareProphets China AIM 'Filthy Forty'. Who will be next to follow the likes of Geong International and co in 'Geong, Geong' and then Gone?...
At 5.45 PM yesterday Denzil Jenkins of the AIM Regulation team called Nomad ZAI. No-one answered so he left a message on its answerphone informing the Nomad that it was to lose its Nomad status at 6 PM that day and that its clients would be contracted at that time with the news. Jenkins followed this up with an email saying that ZAI could appeal but when you are going to lose all your clients what is the point? In fact the events of yesterday are just part of a story which shows AIM in a terrible light as a secretive and oppressive body covering its own failings with scapegoating and showing no regard for natural justice or any sense of fairness.
Nigel Somerville asked yesterday why Nyota (NYO) had not been booted off AIM having lost the services of its Nomad, Roland "fatty" Cornish. There has been no RNS so far but here is what is happening.
There was a High Court Ruling this week which concerns attempts by the London Stock Exchange (LSE) and AIM to discipline the firm of ZAI Corporate Finance, a Nomad, or retained adviser, to firms on the AIM casino. The big question here is what dirty linen the Stock Exchange is desperate to hide. I should declare at this juncture that I am an expert witness in this case.
My last piece on Echo Energy (ECHO) looked at how connected party Greenberry was making a fortune out of the ramp and also looked at rather odd TR-1s. Well history is repeating itself and, as always expected, yesterday’s TR-1 shows how the other connected “institutional investor” here, Pegasus, has also made a very quick buck - not that it told anyone when it was doing so!
It’s not often that I comment on an RNS entitled Total Voting Rights, but I had been waiting for yesterday’s RNS from Echo Energy (ECHO). In my view, there has been an abuse of AIM rules, or, at the very least, the spirit of the rules, and I believe Echo has just one simple aim, namely to keep the average PI in the dark for as long as possible to enable certain parties to cash in big. Please allow me to explain.
Surprise, surprise, Clear Leisure (CLP) announced a placing this morning at 0.9p following a rampfest from the time it announced its Operational Update on Monday morning. All involved should hang their heads in shame. Let’s look at the textbook P&D in closer detail.
On Monday 8 February it will be Chinese New Year so why not celebrate. Shareprophets has analysed investment companies and Chinese companies, now AIM listed Grand Group Investment PLC (GIPO) which is an equity investment business specialising in high growth unlisted Chinese companies coms - with a reader hat tip - into the spotlight.
Just when you thought PeerTV (PTV) could sink no lower in the AIM Cesspit it comes up with another shocker. The company is clearly insolvent, it has today admitted to lying to investors which is fraud as it issued shares after that lie and its Nomad ZAI Corporate Finance has formally walked. No-one else will act for it so after one month of suspension its shares will be booted off the AIM Casino. The next point of call will be the administrators and hopefully the rozzers as well.
Last week PeerTV (PTV) – IPO’d at 45p a share four years ago now 0.02p – accepted that four shareholders had the right to stand for election to its board at an EGM on Monday. Today shareholders were told that they no longer had the right to decide who runs the company they own. AIM has allowed PeerTV to execute shareholder democracy. It has sent a message to all investors – FUCK YOU: the crony capitalists run the show.
As predicted on Sunday in yet another scoop for this website, ZAI Corporate Finance, led by heroic Big Ray Zimmerman, has refused to act as Nomad for the proposed new management team at Carry on up the Sefton Resources (SER). We can now reveal the real reason for this, flag up yet more market abuse by Chris Oil and suggest what happens next.
I am afraid that while there have been many bloodbath days for shareholders in Carry on up The Sefton Resources (SER), tomorrow will be the bloodiest of the lot. I am expecting an RNS first thing and it is not going to be good news.
We have already pointed out how AIM-China Filthy Forty member, Northwest Investment Group (NWIG) – the investment company which doesn’t invest – has frittered away stacks of cash on plc costs and achieved precisely nothing by way of meeting its investment goals so far see HERE and HERE . But one eagle-eyed reader has spotted a few more things which merit a wider audience. Yes, ‘David’ is back with another down and dirty look at the details given in accounts. Oh dear. He writes….
Another of the 14 ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty has filed its interims in the nick of time. Step forward Northwest Investment Group (NWIG) – an investment company which doesn’t invest!
We all knew that at the October 6 EGM, team Chris Oil would win and that the current directors – bar Jossy Rachmantio would be booted out to be replaced by ADVFN’s (AFN) Clem Chambers and Mike Hodges. Sefton (SER) has now thrown in the towel but the drama is far from over.
Do you remember the ups and mostly downs at TXO? It was booted off the AIM Casino in March 2015 because, rather than accepting the offer of a new Nomad which was conditional on the CEO, Tim Baldwin, and one of the Non Execs, Chris Foster, quietly stepping down, Tim decided it would be better for shareholders for the company to be booted off AIM and seek an alternative listing elsewhere. That has not happened nor has the much promised Annual Report to 30 Sep 14 been produced and is now 6 months late). You may also remember that TXO had a 20% shareholding in Athabasca Resources which was going to list on the Casino bringing vast wealth to TXO, thanks to the great deal Tim did getting in on the ground floor.
UPDATED: Oh dear, it looks as if another China AIM stock is set to lose its AIM casino listing. AIM regulation has just now suspended trading in shares in China Chaintek (CTEK). Market sources say that Big Ray Zimmerman of ZAI Corporate Finance had enough and quit as Nomad to the Norfolk China Chaintek (CTEK) with immediate effect. The company has made no statement.
AIM-listed Univision Engineering Limited (UVEL) issued its full year results for the year to the end of Mar 2015 at no-one-is-watching o’clock, 5.33pm last night. That is enough of a Red Flag already, but given the recent focus of this website on AIM-China set-ups, I see that this company is registered in Hong Kong. Oh dear….
The more I look at the collection of investment train wrecks and outright frauds that are the China filthy forty the more I am horrified. Let’s look at the 26th best performer out of the 40, it has only lost 96% since IPO on the AIM Casino. I refer to Northwest Investment Group Ltd (NWIG), a special from Big Ray Zimmerman of ZAI Corporate Finance.
It seems like ages ago that the then Chairman of the London Stock Exchange, Mr Gibson Smith stared at me disdainfully at the police-state plenum-style AGM and in answer to my question as to whether having AIM was really worth the sweat, given its minimal contribution to Group profits compared to the colossal reputational damage it was wreaking, trotted out some feeble rehearsed platitudes about the importance of the AIM market, the quality of the Nomads, and lack of wholesale fraud in the AIM listed China-based community.
We today launch the China AIM Casino Filthy 40 – a way of tracking what a fraud ridden mini cesspit this is. The findings and the tables below will truly shock you and shows what fantasists the idiots running the London Stock Exchange are.
Tinci listed on the AIM casino back in 2006 raising £2.1 million at 70p. It delisted with the shares at 4.375p on January 2015. Now you see it, now you see new it. This is quite amazing.
Normally Big Ray Zimmerman of ZAI Corporate Finance, nomad to a stack of China frauds, puts his name to lies pumped out by the Norfolks on the AIM Casino. But by way of change I have been passed evidence of Big Ray telling porkies in a regulatory announcement about his own company.
Bear raider: Lucian Miers has written to AIM Regulation about China fraud Gate Ventures (GATE) and has cc'd in ZAI Corpoate Finance which is widely believed to be the only Nomad prepared to consider acting for these shysters now that Roland "Fatty" Cornish has quit in disgust. Lucian's letter does not pull its punches and is below.
At last the spineless crony capitalist pig Roland "fatty" Cornish of New World Oil & Gas infamy, has quit as Nomad to China fraud Gate Ventures (GATE) and hence the shares have been suspended at once. The shares were listed in March and via fees and from exercising warrants and flogging shares - even though the prospectus said he could not exercise for a year - fatty has trousered c£400,000 but now even this greedy pig, devoid of principle has had enough.
Does Nomad Cairn have a shred of inegrity? If it does why has it not quit the JQW(JQW) account as yet again it has emerged today how Chinese investors have totally ignored AIM rules as they screw mug punters in the UK.
By way of background JQW is capitalised, at 10.25p, at £19.6 million. According to the Norfolk it generated a calendar 2014 profit after tax of £14 million and increased its cash position during 2014 by £5 million to £39 million. So why on earth would anyone be selling?
When a company issues bad news after hours the reason is so as to try to slip it out with nobody noticing (futile these days, it simply draws attention and gives sad individuals like me an excuse to start digging – see yesterday’s piece on Rurelec HERE). Secondly, it is just a damned insult to the shareholders who the company management supposedly work for. Yesterday, after hours – at almost 6pm on a Friday when everyone really has gone home for the weekend, out came not one but two bad news announcements.
In November of 2014 the Qualifying Executives in the Nomad team at Daniel Stewart, led by China fraud specialist Mr Paul Shackleton all quit and it was forced to tell those AIM Casino companies it represented that they needed a new Nomad or would be slung off AIM. I can now reveal that the London Stock Exchange then secretly screwed ordinary investors in order to avoid its own humiliation.
Another day and another day refused entry to an AGM. This time it is the London Stock Exchange. Thanks to its press office for being a bunch of lying wankers – what exactly makes me so scary fellows?
On April 2nd AIM Listed Insetco (INC) announced that its Nomad and broker Cairn was to quit on May 2nd and that it was seeking a replacement. I warned you back then that you should sell as this company reeks of Terry Ramsden and is a dog. Well today came news that Cairn has now resigned with immediate effect and the shares are now suspended on the casino.
Ok I am up for it. In response to popular demand I will be coming up to London on April 29th in order to attend the London Stock Exchange (LSE) AGM to give the useless tossers in charge a hard time about fraud on AIM, both Chinese and otherwise. Lucian Miers is up for it, anyone else fancy a bunfight followed by pizza.
I see that Andrew Monk of VSA Resources is today saying that he will emigrate if Labour wins the General Election. Normally Jim Davidson makes a similar pledge. That almost makes me tempted to back the People’s Party. Just wondering who else has promised to leave the Country if the Reds triumph on May 7? If any one of:
The latest AIM casino debacle to show London’s worst Nomad ZAI Corporate Finance as not fit for purpose concerns casino listed Ukrainian dairy products group Ukrproduct (UKR) and it is a true shocker.
Tom Winnifrith had warned as far back as November (see HERE ) that AIM Cesspit posterboy Maple Energy (MPLE) was in serious trouble. Anyone who hung on after that is now locked in to an undead corpse, suspended as it is with just the formalities to complete before being dispatched to the corporate knackers’ yard. The latest kick in the teeth for shareholders came at no-one-is-watching o’clock last night (at just after 5pm).
For the first time in ten months the keystone cops at AIM Regulation has fined and privately censured a NOMAD for assisting its AIM listed client in misleading investors. But we do not know which Nomad has been a naughty boy and the level of the fine is a total Rum & Coke.
There is so much to say in today's podcast but to clarify that in yesterday's podcast when I said monogamy I meant celibacy. I start with a tidy up on Motive TV following on from HERE and then onto Rosslyn Data as a follow up to HERE - I shall be contacting the FCA and AIM Regulation about Rosslyn and its loathsome Nomad Cenkos later. And then onto a special from Big Ray Zimmerman at disgraced ZAI Corporate Finance - a true POS that is Zibao Metals Recycling. Guess where it does its business? And we have the China AIM Norfolk poll results for you.
I mentioned this in BearCast and it is just a bit of fun. Shares in Naibu remain suspended as the CEO of that fraud Mr Houyan Lin languishes in a China gaol cell. So which will the be the next China AIM stock to be suspended for whatever reason - natch fraud is the most likely reason, Vote now, results tomorrow
ZAI Corporate Finance & Big Ray Zimmerman are squarely in the frame regarding the fraud Naibu (NBU) but in my view it is former advisor Daniel Stewart and its then lead Qualifying Executive (QE) Mr Paul Shackleton who are most culpable and I have today written to the FCA and AIM Regulation asking that both be investigated and punished most severely for their role in allowing the continuation of a fraud that has cost investors millions of pounds.
Yesterday’s shock revelation by Tom Winnifrith HERE that Ray Zimmerman’s ZAI Corporate Finance had been on the receiving end of an 80-page reprimand for its failures as a Nomad in due diligence and monitoring of its clients was stunning.
It is no secret that ZAI Corporate Finance run by big Ray Zimmerman is the worst Nomad in London. If no-one else will represent a client, Big Ray steps up to the plate but I can reveal that this has already landed him in the soup big time with the regulators and I now urge the FCA and AIM Regulation to shut him and his company down for good in an open letter.
I start with a few admin matters. Is Britain corrupt? I have recorded a postcard on that matter on my personal site which you may find interesting HERE. Secondly a couple of corrections on Synety but my stance is unchanged. Then I look at why folks appoint join brokers and then at Patagonia Gold, West African Minerals, China Chaintek and have an explicit warning of bad news to come this afternoon for Big Ray Zimmerman at ZAI Corporate Finance
Expect a formal statement shortly but shares in Black Mountain Resources (BMZ) – crony capitalist Peter Landau’s last AIM listed stock – have been suspended today as per Rule 1 of the Casino. That means that the Nomad (RFC Ambrian) has quit.
Results from AIM casino listed China Chaintek (CTEK) today are risible. The logistics company is based in fraud central Fujian and is represented by London’s worst Nomad, ZAI Corporate Finance which managed to do full due diligence on the fraud Naibu (NBU) even though its CEO was in jail at the time. Enough Red flags for you? You want more?
As its shares soared on a December announcement of German court approval of an application from its principal operating subsidiary for a procedure similar to ‘Chapter 11’ in the US, with the objective of “the reorganisation and continuation of the subsidiary”, I warned on shares in Hightex Group plc (HTIG) – see HERE. I was 100% Right.
Yes you read the headline correctly. The CEO of an AIM listed company has been languishing in prison since mid-November and no-one has been told about it. Two Nomads, the non-execs, AIM Regulation you stand accused of contributing to the darkest hour of the Casino. Anyone who has bought shares since the incarceration you know who to sue. Surely heads must roll?
The statement today from Naibu (NBU) is comedy. This is such a slam dunk fraud I cannot see why we bother pretending otherwise. The tragedy is that with the shares still suspended investors face a 100% wipe-out. I turn to the statement and also to the roll of shame and how this MUST BE CAREER ENDING for some folks if AIM Regulation is to retain any credibility. Are you reading Marcus Stuttard, the phoney “Sheriff of AIM”? The Real Sheriff has a message for you too. Let’s start with the statement which comes after a suspension on January 9 as the NEDS sough clarification of Naibu’s financial position.
A reader who knows AIM from the other side writes in with some fairly draconian suggestions for reforming the AIM Casino. He clearly knows what he is talking about and I have real sympathy with the points he makes. Will the casino take any of them onboard? Our correspondent writes:
The Deputy Sheriff’s Office is in a state of perplexed confusion. Quite what to make of what follows is, well, stretching sanity. It concerns a subsidiary company of Alpha Returns Group plc (ARGP) called Shidu Investments Ltd, which was formed in Apr 2012 and by Apr 2013 was wholly owned by the plc. As such, it had to file full annual accounts, but only filed abbreviated accounts to Companies House. Hang on to your hats, this is not an easy read – but it is shocking. Oh, the stench….
I shall turn to the matter of the forthcoming Rangers FC (RFC) EGM later but the high-handed statement signed off by its adviser Mr Paul Shackleton of WH Ireland yesterday should be viewed in light of a shock revelation I serve up today about his own actions (or inactions) regarding AIM listed China fraud Naibu (NBU).
It is now three weeks since shares in Naibu (NBU) were suspended from the AIM casino pending clarification of its financial position, notwithstanding the fact that it claimed to be profitable, cash generative and to have net cash of £32 million – a multiple of its market cap. In light of this I have again written to Big Ray Zimmerman of ZAI Corporate Finance, Nomad to this fraud because the implications of the fraud are severe for not only Naibu but also ZAI, Daniel Stewart (DAN) and the other members of the Fujian four – China Chaintek (CTEK), Camkids (CAMK) and Jiasen (JSI). Plus for good measure JQW (JQW).
Oh dear, Oh dear, it seems as if the board as ASX listed MEO has been listening to my advice HERE and HERE as it has just now advised its shareholders to reject the all share bid from AIM casino listed Aussie based POS Mosman Oil & Gas (MSMN). The technical term for where that leaves Mosman is “fucked”.
I am in full flow today! I start with Kevin Ashton and why you should all buy a ticket for UK INvestor Show on April 18 NOW (HERE) and give thus guy a standing ovation. He is a total 100% hero. I then move onto Gowin New, and then to Mosman en passant (more detail HERE) and then to Bagir ( what i a "good" company, hint - not bagir, and why), Sopheon, TXO and Golden Saint Resources. There is a bit of a discussion about the lack of AIM Regulation and ZAI Corporate Finance.
Aussie based AIM casino listed Mosman Oil & Gas (MSMN) shares were at one stage last year ramped up to 45p on the back of some fairly “aggressive” claims about drilling success. They are now just 4.875p after interim results beg the question of whether this business is insolvent yet?
Grand Group Investments plans to IPO on AIM tomorrow thanks to fat crony capitalist Ray Zimmerman of ZAI Corporate Finance. The usual advisers to China Norfolks are on board: dirtbag lawyers Pinsent Masons and PR poshboy Henry Harrison Topham, I say old chap didn't your grandfather bugger mine behind the bike sheds at Eton? In this podcast I look at the other Red Flags
Shares in the fraud Naibu (NBU) were finally suspended on the AIM casino on 9 January 2015 after the NEDS woke up and requested clarification of the financial position of a company claiming to be cash generative and drowning in cash. How long does it take to check this out? What next?
Anyone owning a Chinese based AIM stock is certifiably bonkers. That is especially the case if it is based in Fujian Province, a small part of the PRC which has specialised in listing frauds on AIM, the Frankfurt Exchange, the TSX and NASDAQ. The Fujian four on AIM are: Camkids (CAMK), Naibu (NBU), China Chaintek (CTEK) and Jiasen International (JSI) and for all four my ultimate target price is 0p. But I feature Jiasen today at 42.5p as a sell of the year.
It is a special Bearcast as I make a number of Sheriff of AIM New Year Resolutions. And then I go onto to explain why the following are the least wanted men on the AIM Casino and what I plan to do about it to make their working lives a living hell in 2015:
I am really trying to be helpful here to Quindell (QPP) because I am just such a nice guy and its Christmas and West Ham are almost safe from relegation and that sort of thing. And in that vein I have drafted a letter for Rob Terry to send to Ray Zimmerman, the boss of ZAI Corporate Finance. It reads:
Last week I revealed that Cenkos, the Nomad to Quenron (QPP) was letting it be known that it was going to quit as Nomad soon (HERE). The Sunday Times today reports that Quindell fall guy – acting chairman David Currie is scouring the City looking for a new Nomad, because without a Nomad the shares get suspended then – a month later – booted off the AIM casino. Our when will Quindell shares be suspended prize sweepstake is HERE The Sunday Times report states:
The BBC has already published its Christmas programme schedule and it appears to be 70% repeats. ShareProphets is being rather more daring and will be producing novel content and so, for you, here is a sneak preview of what is in store, it is tips, drama and exposes all round.
I am preparing to film a crony capitalism special video outside the "champagne" Christmas party of disgraced soon to be ex Nomad Daniel Stewart. Its staff have publically said they want to beat me up for pointing out that they are wankers who float frauds. Maybe they were lying about that too. I also cover the new Danial Cesspit, ZAI Corporate Finance, Pressfit (DS client), Oracle Coalfieds,Ultrasis, Naibu, IGAS and, of course, Quindell ( a fraud floated by Daniel Stewart).
As we know Daniel Stewart will stop being a Nomad tomorrow night and so shares in its clients will be suspended from the AIM Casino unless they get a new Nomad PDQ. So today China Chaintek (CTEK) announced that ZAI Corporate Finance had taken it one. FFS – Alarm Bells vicar? Due diligence? A list of ZAI bargepole stocks is needed now.
