Well spotted Roger Lawson - The Sharesoc man inadvertently discovers some big red flags at Rosslyn including a looming profits warning

Published 94 days ago

Roger Lawson of ShareSoc bought a few shares in Rosslyn Data (RDT) as a recovery punt in a placing. That he was able to get EIS relief added to the attraction although I still worry he will lose money on this company which I have highlighted many times (HERE) as a howling dog even by the standards of AIM. Lawson attended the AGM yesterday and reports back on what appears to have been a curate's egg in his mind. I think he is being well generous.

FastForward Innovations – More concerns over the Lingo Media / Schoold deal: will it actually happen?

Published 259 days ago

I wrote about the rather unexciting merger between Schoold and Lingo Media that FastForward Innovations (FFWD) announced in March (HERE) but with Lingo Media recently issuing its full year results, I felt it merited an update. They don’t make great reading and I’m beginning to wonder whether the deal will actually go ahead.

Scancell – Open Offer update re EIS reliefs and a damned silly rule

Published 671 days ago

Well this is very annoying, and a result of new rules brought to the EIS scheme. I’m sure that AIM-listed Scancell would have much preferred that it were not the case, but it seems that EIS reliefs can only be applied for by investors who had previously bought EIS-qualifying shares and are now looking to take up their Open Offer entitlements.

Scancell – Placing, Open Offer, future plans: a buy?

Published 673 days ago

It has been too long since I revisited AIM-listed biotech Scancell (SCLP). Much has happened since I picked it as a share for 2015 but it is egg-on-face as the shares have more than halved, with (so far) no value-enhancing corporate deal on the table. The clinical trial on the company’s lead product, SCIB-1, is done but there have been funding questions – correctly called by Tom Winnifrith. Now we have an EIS-qualifying open offer on the table alongside a placing, with some detail of plans going forward. Still holding my shares, the question is what to do?

Optibiotix - PR own goal, £1 million placing but still a buy

Published 716 days ago

Optibiotix (OPTI) yesterday announced that it had raised £1 million at 78p. It saw this as a triumph in that the investor is an EIS fund which approached it. So the shares will be held for three years and not flipped.

Tern plc– Angus Forrest is STILL not telling the truth about the Cryptosoft Acquisition!

Published 1100 days ago

I’ve already scotched a few rumours and outright untruths about Tern plc (TERN) HERE, HERE HERE  and HERE and Tom Winnifrith has added to the opprobium several times, in particular HERE. But in the wake of a ‘clarification’ RNS which appeared to seek to set the record straight, Tern’s company chairman, Mr Angus Forrest, is STILL misleading his investors by giving an overstated impression of Tern’s beneficial ownership of Cryptosoft. I would suggest that this amounts to Market Abuse. It is a disgrace. The FCA and AIM Regulation need to act now to stop this. It is an affront to all the regulatory systems in place to make sure that the market is told the full truth!

ShareProphets Share Tip of the Week: Buy Chapel Down at 28p or 19p if you hurry

Published 1220 days ago

English wines and beer maker, Chapel Down Group (CDGP) will within the next week complete a £1 million crowdfunding fundraise at 28p per share. But it is EIS eligible so if you are a higher rate taxpayer you effectively pay 19p and – ok – you have to hold for 3 years – but you will pay no CGT. Frankly this is a nil brainer.
