InterQuest – management-buyout attempted robber barons try more spin, but it currently still means little

Four days before Christmas I revealed that after Teathers Financial (TEA), the next venture of Jason Drummond, Gametech, was planning a listing on NEX Markets c/o London's worst financial adviser/Nomad Mr Roland "Fatty" Cornish. Wind forward and the Court filing below suggests that it is on the brink of bankruptcy. But is all it seems?

Nilesh Jagatia the former FD at now delisted AIM bad boy Teathers Financial (TEA) is now enmeshed in controvery not only over Teather's serial ability to file accounts on time but over how shareholder's cash was used not only on entertainment involving semi clad young ladies but also for apparently personal spending by Nilesh. One hopes that by now the Old Bill and HMRC have been asked to have a butcher's. Amazingly Mr Jagatia remains as FD at two other AIM Companies both, as it happens, run by John Gunn: Inspirit (INSP) and Octagonal (OCT). I have now written to John Gunn.

Yesterday I revealed a series of 74 "interesting" transactions on the Teathers Financial (TEA) company credit card and some curious payments on the Teathers pre-payment card belonging to Nilesh Jagatia the company's former FD. There is now a very real suspicion that Teather's poor shareholders were paying for Jagatia's domestic shopping at his local Sainsbury's in South Woodford and that he was making withdrawals from the company's account for personal use. I have thus written to the new CEO flip flop Ben Turney who, of course arrived in the coup that saw Jagatia fired. The letter is below.

The way that shareholders' cash was pissed away on corporate jollies & semi clad young ladies by the former board of Teathers Financial (TEA) has already been documented fully here. But documents have now fallen into my possession, here at Winnileaks, which ask even bigger questions about FD Nilesh Jagatia who is pro tem, still FD at AIM-listed Inspirit (INSP) and Octagonal (OCT). After this bombshell I wonder for how long.

I start with thanks for all the offers of support in dealing with the criminal poltroon Aidan Earley of Worthington (WRN) - now in liquidation - infamy. I then look at Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) and the questions it is NOT answering. Then I touch on Audioboom (BOOM) before going onto Parallel Media (PAA) before ending up with the basket case that is Inspirit Energy(INSP), its bleak future and its links to the Teathers Financial (TEA) scandal. Finally I brace myself for a night of woe tomorrow.

Those who lost money on Teathers Financial (TEA) must have assumed that there would be no stockmarket comeback for those involved in incidents such as THIS and THIS as well as the complete wipeout for shareholders. No self respecting adviser would inflict another such creation on public markets would they. But we reckoned without London's worst Nomad, the tax averse Mr Roland "Fatty" Cornish.

With the shares slipping to just 0.24p to sell and there being no sign of jam tomorrow being turned into anything resembling an order, we have just been passed judgement in a court case which closed this week.

May and June 2015 was a time when Teathers Financial (TEA) was awash with cash thanks to an April placing. The only question was how quickly could the company's directors spend it? There was the shooting party and the General Election party but more was needed and on 29th May, the Friday before a bank holiday weekend folks were getting mighty thirsty.

If you are a shareholder in Teather's Financial (TEA) you will already be fuming about our revelations about the lavish shooting party YOU paid for to keep Jason Drummond, Mrs Drummond and some City Hooray Henry's entertained. It gets worse...we could run a long series on the corporate profligacy of Teather's and may well do so, but let's start with Election Day 2015, May 7.

Pretty soon we will hear the full awful details of the realisable assets at Teathers Financial (TEA) and I fear that we must brace ourselves that it will not be good. The word on the street is that the number could be as low as £100,000. So where did all the money go? This will horrify you.

Well, well – another twist in the formerly AIM-listed Teathers (TEA) saga has emerged, as a wander through Companies House filings reveals that a certain Mr Jason Drummond quit as a director on 23 June 2016 (last Thursday), ahead of the forthcoming sack-the-board EGM on Tuesday.

The earlier piece on the Drummonds, Nilesh Jagatia and the Media Corp scandal needs to be read in full. What horrifies me is that it shows that AIM Regulation knew everything in July 2014 but failed to act. The Bogus Sheriff of AIM, Marcus Stuttard, should either resign on Monday morning or find out who failed to protect investors, sack him and agree to compensate anyone who has lost money in Teathers Financial (TEA) and possibly Inspirit (INSP) as well. I warn you that I use bad language in this bonus podcast as I am furious with the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation over this appalling failure.

If so you are going to get even more pissed off as I have obtained and publish below a lawyers letter which exposes wholesale fraud and deception at their last outfit Media Corp (MDC).

It seems that Nilesh Jagatia, discredited director of Teathers Financial (TEA), has got recent form when it comes to failing to submit accounts by the statutory deadline. Mr Jagatia is finance directors of a number of Plcs, including one of my old favourites, the piece of Turkish that is Inspirit Energy (INSP). Just like Teathers, in December last year Inspirit received a First Gazette to strike the company off the register of companies for failing to provide its accounts on time. What is it that Mr Jagatia doesn’t understand about the legal requirements concerning his job?

The discredited board of Teathers Financial appears determined to make itself look as bad as possible in its ongoing battle with activist shareholders.

Yesterday I exclusively revealed HERE that Teathers Financial (TEA) had told rebel shareholders that if they did not withdraw an EGM request to sack the board, a mystery £1 million investor would walk.

That on its own tells you the board are worse than poltroons and should be fired. I now publish Olly's email.
