Sosandar – Trading Update Suffers From Adam Reynolds’ Keyboard - it's the cash that matters!

AIM-listed onliine women’s fashionwear purveyor Sosandar (SOS) has offered up a bullish trading update for calendar Q4 2021 (its own Q3, given accounts are to March). We are told that revenues were up some 122% year on year, that each month was EBITDA positive making for the company’s first EBITDA positive quarter. Of course, EBITDA is bullshit earnings but even so this is a positive update. However….

The Mode share price has dropped a lot recently, but for good reason after issuing a dodgy RNS! Bargepole!

Mode Global Holdings (MODE) is typical of many small technology companies in that it burns through cash at an alarming rate whilst trying to grow its revenues to any sort of meaningful amount.

Tern – Another (almost) Numberless Update. Still a SELL.

AIM-listed jam-tomorrow IoT investment company Tern plc (TERN) has released a portfolio update this morning. Naturally the BBMs are pleased as punch but I fear that, once again, the company has borrowed the Adam Reynolds (who, for the avoidance of doubt, has nothing to do with Tern) keyboard, for there are no meaningful numbers to be found – and the few included are pitiful.

Advanced Oncotherapy - £40m Fundraise, Biggest to Date. So it is a Buy? Er…..

AIM-listed protons beams for cancer outfit Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) announced a proposed £40 million fundraise yesterday – the largest to date – at 40p per share, a 17% premium to its average closing price over the past month, and a 13% premium to the previous close. I have to hand it to the company, that’s a great effort. But does it make the shares a buy?

Sosandar – FY Numbers and surely a misleading headline

AIM-listed online ladies fashionwear purveyor Sosandar (SOS) posted its full year numbers to March this morning,  and gave what looks to me to have been a highly misleading update on the recently completed Q1, offering up a headline which surely stands no scrutiny at all.

Oi Corero: sales are vanity, cash is reality, your trading statement is meaningless and your valuation is a total rum ‘n’coke

I say that sales are vanity but today’s “record” half year trading update does not seem to have much to boast about in that department and as to profits? Er… dream on. For Corero (CNS) that is the stuff of shagging Cheryl Cole land. It is pure fantasy.

NEW EXPOSE: Tern - Talking Medicines, and talking distributable reserves…..

The FY20 Accounts for the latest investee of AIM-listed jam-tomorrow investment company Tern (TERN) were released by Companies House at the end of April: Talking Medicines carried on sending cash to the great central bank in the sky at an alarming rate and retained profits – or, rather, retained losses, ballooned further……which might raise an interesting question with regard to a share buy-back conducted by the company!

Advanced Oncotherapy – surely a statement is needed: is it bust yet?

I cannot help but notice that shares in AIM-listed Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) have fallen below their par value of 25p. For some companies this would present a bit of an embarrassment but for cash-guzzling AIM Casino plays with zero income it is surely a disaster. Since it's hard to see how a GM could be called in the current environment, will Advanced simply run out of (other peoples’) cash? And then there is the small matter of construction at Harley Street, which must be a tad tricky at the moment. On 20th February I noted the following:

Conroy Gold and Natural Resources – Interim numbers show it is still technically insolvent

Of course there is insolvency as far as the law is concerned, and insolvent in that there isn’t enough cash to pay the bills but AIM-listed Conroy Gold and Natural Resources (CGNR) had not the cash to pay its bills, but still goes on. The interims to last November 30 show that it clocked up a pre-tax loss of EUR 278,000 and had negative net current assets of a stonking MINUS EUR 3.7 million!

Neil Woodford Dog Verseon releases FY18 numbers. Material uncertainty? You bet…..

Tom Winnifrith and I have already stuck the boot into Woodford Dog Verseon (VERS, but formerly VSN) as it raised yet more cash to keep the lights on in March. Of course, that fundraise fell to Neil Woodford who ponied up 105p per share for 7.5 million shares of the 7.7 million share issue. That was bad enough, but being near-enough the only investor in town (armed with other people’s money) he coughed up 105p per share when they were trading at 74p – madness!

Conroy Gold and Natural Resources – Interim drivel and a balance sheet from hell: SELL

Then it was onto results from Telit (TCM), the insider dealing of its CEO, possible disposals, 88 definitions of profit and the ongoing mega cashburn which is the grim reality.

Tern – heading for the perfect storm: SELL.

Cynical Bear suggested last week that all was not well with the attempted fundraising by Tern plc (TERN) principal investment Device Authority. Not surprising really, since the funding round is being conducted at a whopping premium to the value of Tern’s holding implied by its share price - investors who were convinced would be better off simply buying Tern stock. He also wondered what has happened to Tern’s investment in new portfolio member InVMA, into which Tern was supposed to be pumping a further £250,000 by 31 October. It is now November 7th and there has been no update. Why?

Midatech Pharma – a reader asks what we think (it’s not good….the curse of Neil Woodford (again)

I have to say I haven’t come across AIM-listed Midatech (MTPH) until now. However, with interims results just released perhaps I could get a handle on it. The problem is that the interim report has a few gaping holes in it, all of which leaves a strong sense of unease. The unease in increased when I note that the recent bailout placing (at a whopping 31% discount) showed up Woodford Investment Management as a major holder. Oh dear, not a good start….

Cloudbuy – last chance saloon as final tranche of funding is drawn, and a partial truth

Sadly it looks as though AIM-listed Cloudbuy is entering the final chapter of its life as the last tranche of funding from white knight investor Roberto Sella has been drawn. The implied cash-burn suggests that in the absence of big-time delivery of revenues (something oft-promised, but never delivered so far) a crunch looms.

CloudTag – just how much cash is this company burning? £9m in 2016?

With the L1 funding package now fully drawn, AIM-listed CloudTag has now had an awfully large amount of money, yet we are still to see a product available for it to sell. But thumbing through the RNSs of the last few months shows an incredible cashburn. Where has it all gone?

Cloudbuy – loan drawdown suggests cashburn still a problem

Friday saw AIM-listed e-marketplace play Cloudbuy (CBUY) announce that it had drawn down a further £1 million under its funding package with 11% shareholder Mr Roberto Sella. This follows the original drawing of £3.3 million back in April under a funding package of up to £5.75 million. Unfortunately it seems that cashburn remains a problem, and one wonders how long the new £1 million (and the remaining £1.4 million available under the deal) will last before the company has to get out the begging bowl.
