Our good friends over at Citywire have again come up with bad news for Neil Woodford, in revealing that investors in his Equity Income Fund (EIF) reacted badly to last month’s sequence of dismal news by cashing out to the tune of £160 million. Having started March with £4.7 billion, EIF slumped to £4.4 billion last month which suggests that redemptions are not the only problem for Woodford.

It is almost possible to feel sorry for Neil Woodford. Al three of his funds are overdrawn, performance has been dire and those nasty people at ShareProphets keep on poking fun at Britain’s most successful fund manager. And to cap it all it looks as though the FCA has been on his back too. And today dear old Neil has started a big swap of unquoted Woodford Dog paper for…..er….Woodford Dog paper in the form of WPCT.

Eight days ago Neil Woodford’s PR spinners told their gophers in the lacky corrupt deadwood press, aka Peter Evans and Sabah Meddings of the Sunday Times to write a big puff piece about how Neil Woodford’ backed Proton Partners was planning to raise £50 million and list on the NEX lobster pot. It has not taken long for that fake news to be exposed, as no investors other than Woodford himself have been prepared to back this IPO – something revealed in the prospectus out today.

The Sunday Times “reveals” ( i.e. is told by Neil Woodford’s PR spinners) that his Proton Partners , proton beam centre operator, is planning a £320 million IPO and hoping to raise £50 million on, o-f all places, the NEX Lobster pot. This is a spoof but the deadwood press ( step forward Peter Evans and Sabah Meddings) are happy to assist the great one.

NEX-listed Sport Capital Group plc (SCG) used to be known as failed miner Pelican House Mining, also of the NEX province. Following a general meeting in January 2019, the name change was effected, alongside a placing to bring in Eight Capital, and Peterhouse Capital turned up with 4.72%. But since there was hardly a bean in the bank, it might be a little surprising to see that on 17 January it had bought Italian football club Palermo, of Serie B, for a nominal sum.

Back on 27 November 2018, AIM-listed Haydale (HAYD) announced (via RNS Reach, mind you) a collaboration with NEX-listed Wheelsure (WHLP) was being joined by Manchester University’s Graphene Engineering Innovation Centre (GEIC) in a project to develop an intelligent new product pairing Haydale's functionalised graphene sensor technology with Wheelsure's failsafe locking solution. Of course, Haydale needed cash then (as it does now). But then so did Wheelsure (see HERE). As such it all looked like a ramp.

We all know that AIM-listed Haydale needs to raise money, and we have had all forms of pumping to support it in the form of RNS Reaches and paid-for broker notes. Now we see reannounced old news from NEX-listed Wheelsure (WHLP) regarding the joint venture with Haydale and the University of Manchester which Haydale announced on 27 November (and Wheelsure announced on the 26th)! Even Haydale didn’t even bother with an RNS Reach, although an announcement went out via Alliance News: never miss the opportunity to re-inform! But this does beg one or two questions.

AIM-listed Imaginatik (IMTK) has beaten the odds and signed up a new Nomad to replace FinnCap which slipped out of the back door a month ago. Good news – and on deadline day too. And so WH Ireland steps up to the plate. We also learnt that the company got a placing away – at just 1.1p, plans an Open Offer and has signed up for a death spiral toboot. Great stuff – but I won’t be interested for now and here is why.

Today brings news that FinnCap, Finncrap to its friends, the biggest AIM Nomad and broker is to buy Cavendish Corporate Finance, the corporate advisory firm run by pompous Tory Lord Leigh, who claims to speak for ordinary shareholders but is actually a City fat cat like the rest of them, and that the combined business will itself list on the casino in December. Is this a sign that AIM is headed into irreversible decline?

Following my piece HERE which voiced concerns that formerly AIM-listed BMR Group (BMR) had simply been executed by the oxymorons, I had a chat with the company to find out what comes next. My hope is that the company will release a statement in due course, but in the meantime what I can report is that it seems all is not lost. I can also report a little more on the loss of its licence in Zambia (which was subsequently restored).

Hat tip to The Times for running part of this story on Monday but considering I’ve been warning about the Baron Bloom / Oli Fattal property venture, Etaireia Investments (NEX:ETIP) for two years (HERE), I thought I’d join in the fun as Baron Bloom has fallen foul of one of Sam Antar’s ‘three exes”, namely his, soon-to-be, ex-wife who has been spilling the unseemly beans in their divorce case. Bloom has been called out as a total fraudster and has stepped down from Etaireia as a result.

Friday’s news that London Capital (LCG)) was to move from AIM to the tertiary market that is NEX (and aptly described by Tom as the “lobster pot” although I’d call it “Hotel California market” in that you can “check in but you can’t check out”) was not greeted well by the market. In fact, the stock slumped by near half on the news (although it has to be said this was on nominal actual trading volume). At the closing price on Xmas eve (what a day to put out this news eh?) the market was just over £3 million. Set against net cash and ST receivables of just under £8 million at the end Jun stage and being conservative and adjusting this for say another £1 million of losses has the shares trading at less than half the net cash amount.

Looking at some entities on the NEX lobster pot isn’t necessarily the most edifying experience, but two RNSs released last night (after hours, natch) simply leaves ones mouth open. Where to start with this pile of junk from the corporate client list of Peterhouse? Is it the (stunningly) late FY16 numbers? Perhaps it is the related party disposals and acquisitions? Maybe we should look at the balance sheet (showing a MINUS).

NEX-lobster pot listed Afriag (AFRI) slipped out a 4.45pm placing announcement last night – a no-one-is-watching o’clock special, raising enough to keep the lights on but not much more. But there seems to have been a spot of confusion over which company was issuing the RNS. Was it Afriag or fellow David Lenigas company Doriemus (DOR) – also of the NEX province?

No great surprise that after hours on the last possible day, Etaireia Investments (NEX:ETIP) put out its year-end results. It’s also no great surprise that they were shockingly poor but it is worth highlighting one particularly disappointing aspect as it looks very similar to the 2014/2015 fraud and I wonder if history is repeating itself.

A chance wander through the NEX Exchange website (formerly ISDX and Plus Markets) market notices page saw me turn up a NEX Exchange disciplinary notice dated 11 August 2017. I wondered what that was about and who had been done over, so naturally I took a look. The good news is that one Corporate Adviser has been hauled over the coals for failing to ensure its client company kept the market informed about important matters. The bad news is that it is released on an anonymous basis by the exchange.

To be thrown off one market because your adviser tired of signing off on lies is understandable, if you are a fucktard in AIM Regulation who does not care about fraud. But, to paraphrase my fellow Anglo Irishman Mr Wilde, to be thrown off two markets for that reason looks like carelessness. And that brings us to the fraud African Potash (AFPO).

You would have thought that having not one but two advisers resign because they would not sign off on its lies, being out of cash, having its shares suspended on NEX after being slung off AIM would be enough to kill African Potash (AFPO).

But remember, in the end the Count will die.

But I am off sick leave this morning because dissecting such unmitigated horseshit brings joy to my heart and is good for the blood pressure and the soul. This is comedy central from lyin' Chris who is still to follow through on his promise to sue me for libel. I can't think why. The Potash statement is in bold, the lie detection service is not. Brace yourself, this is funny.

Obviously the world’s most successful growth market is tightly regulated and supervised by Marcus Stuttard’s oxymorons of AIM Regulation, who seem incapable of applying their own rules. That is why we selected a beautifully diversified portfolio of stocks which we have Red Flagged here on ShareProphets but since Mr Stuttard’s well-oiled regulatory machinery is just so good there must be nothing wrong. Nothing at all…..which is why after 200 days the portfolio is down by 55%. Oops.

This morning’s RNS makes clear that there is a deadline of tomorrow. Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear. Surely it could not be that NEX, which even found African Potash (AFPO) acceptable, has indicated that it doesn’t want the last remaining listed member of the Fujian Four gracing its exchange, could it?

On the ISDX lobster pot (now known as the NEX lobster pot) it can't get a placing away - for reasons explained in this podcast - so it will be tits up within weeks. That has implications for Blenheim Natural Resources (BNR). Jamie Oliver is blaming Brexit as he shuts six of his over-priced branded eateries. But he is just another celeb tosser don't you think?

The last trade was on December 29. Liquidity is just nil and the 0.05p offer prize only applies if you want to sell peanuts amounts. If you invested in this fraud just accept that your shares are now worthless as it cannot get awaqy the £600,000 placing it dsays that it needs to survive. So Potash is going to go bust soon. But your cash might not be lost. There is a small chance.

Hello Share Scribblers. I’m getting really worried now about the effects of the booming pound sterling on our share values. The rate is now around 1.43 euros to the pound. Yet it doesn’t seem too long ago that a pound was only worth one euro.
