A week after the my last piece on Papillon Holdings (PPHP) in which the silver lining of the RTO being terminated was that the shares could be traded again, bad news hit yesterday with new potential deals being announced meaning that the shares remain suspended and the worse news is that this deal has Longley written all over it….literally. No shame!

A week after my last piece on Papillon Holdings (PPHP) in which I slated the directors Charles Tatnall and James Longley, for their shocking behaviour, I can’t help but comment on this morning’s RNS stating that the long-awaited RTO with a failed gambling business is off. Who would have thought?

I don’t normally comment on the ongoing delays of the potential RTO’s of Sub-Standard Shocker XI members as I would be writing on the topic every week but the Levrett (LVRT) story throws up another angle, namely the total disregard to the obligation to announce results; so without a Nomad to enforce compliance with listing obligations, I thought I’d see if I would have any luck.

My earlier piece outlined some disgraceful behaviour by Charles Tatnall and James Longley at Papillon Holdings (PPHP); however, one has to look at the announcement of Stranger Holdings (STHP) on the same day to really understand the Machiavellian approach being taken by these guys.

Sub-Standard Shocker XI member, Papillon Holdings (PPHP) has been a horror show from the beginning, as I have highlighted a few times, most recently HERE, but the massively delayed announcement of the results on Tuesday this week shows Tatnall and Longley to be low-rent lying fraudsters and investors should be clamouring for their money back.

My heart sunk last week as I noted that the Plutus Powergen (PPG) boys were at it again with their third Sub-Standard List effort coming to the market in just over a year, despite the first two efforts being absolute flops. Oh well, welcome Fandango Holdings (FHP), you’re in the squad– let’s take a look.

This week was always going to throw up a few horrors with it being results week for a whole load of the Sub-Standard Shockers XI. I will do a round-up of some of the other comedic moments from the various announcements over the long weekend but Papillon Holdings (PPHP), which failed to get its results out at all, deserves a special mention.

With the majority of the squad in suspension, or just acting as if they are, the Sub-Standard Shockers XI is in need of some fresh talent and, fortunately, there have been three recent hopefuls making a claim for a place in the team, namely, Emmerson (EML), Mila Resources (MILA) and Stranger Holdings (STHG). I’ll take a quick look at each.

This week was always going to be a good week for a Sub-Standard Shocker XI or two to release some news and Levrett (LVRT) didn’t disappoint (well it did but you know what I mean) with the release of its interims this morning. Guess what - the cash has almost run out already!

By anyone’s standards, and this team’s standards are pretty low, it’s been a shocking week with a winding-up petition being issued against the team leader and general inspiration, Worthington (WRN) and player manager, Senterra Energy (SEN) having to ‘fess up to a failed deal with its share price collapsing as a result. How did the rest of the team get on!?

I first wrote about Papillon Holdings (PPHP) when it joined the Sub-Standard List back in June (HERE) assessing whether it was “fit” enough for the squad. Well, I had no reason to worry as a mere three months later, it has issued an appalling RNS which will have the inevitable disappointing long-term consequences for shareholders.

Recently listed Papillon Holdings (PPHP) is - as Cynical Bear pointed out here - clearly an overvalued rum and coke. But in its brief existence it has at least achieved something: helping the FD slash his tax bill. Oh what jolly good news for the crony capitalists, coke and hookers all round.

I’ll be honest with you, the Sub-Standard Shockers XI squad is always in need of bolstering with its plethora of suspensions, so I was thrilled to see the announcement last Friday of Papillon Holdings (PPHP) coming to the market via the Standard Segment of the Official List. However, I still needed to assess whether it was fit enough to get in to the team.
