And so it ‘kin begins (that and the title should appease Cynical Bear); Kin Group (KIN) “hereby announces that on 26 May 2017 it received a notice of conversion in respect of £100,000 in nominal value of the loan notes which were issued to Belastock Capital L.P. Definitions used in this announcement are taken from the company's announcements dated 15 May 2017”…

There seems to have been quite a bit of volume yesterday in trading of AIM-listed CloudTag (CTAG). Some of us have been noting the rather greater difficulty with which L1 has been offloading stock from loan conversions and warrant exercises which goes in tandem with lower volume - and a complete lack of news from the company to get the BBs in a lather, but yesterday things really picked up. Sadly for shareholders, the share price has not been picking up, it has been on the slide.

I know I have slammed death spirals but they can actually be a "cheaper" source of equity funding for some PLCs. But not all spirals are the same and the L1 facility is a disaster for Cloudtag (CTAG). I explain in this podcast how the warrant kicker will crush the Cloudtag share price and when. Perhaps after listening you want to enter the Cloudtag share price guessing contest HERE

Yesterday the bear raider Waseem Shakoor tweeted that he expected another conversion notice within 24 hours as L1 sought to offload another line of its death spiral loan funding onto AIM-listed CloudTag’s gullible shareholder base. Right on cue, this morning we learnt that the conversion notice was served yesterday, seeing L1 convert £250,000 of notes into shares at just 6.5p. That, against the current bid price of 8.5p. Having thought that my plan for great riches as an AIM death spiral financier might be fraught with danger, I wonder whether I should reconsider.

Following on from THIS ARTICLE from earlier today, I have written to AIM Regulation and asked them to step in. This is an important matter, because shareholders in AIM-listed Tern plc have just seen more than 1% of their company near-enough handed out for almost nothing, by way of an unexplained warrant exercise which they would have been unaware of. This is not an acceptable situation because the implication is that ownership rights on AIM can become arbitrary.

In February 2011, just over two months before New World Oil & Gas (NEW) came to market, the Texas Community Bank brought a court action against CEO Bill Kelleher for failing to repay a $585,000 loan. This loan was a mortgage on Mr Kelleher’s private yacht, Neftegaz. With less than a month until Mr Kelleher is due to repay New World whatever he owes the company on the $333,000 he borrowed in March 2013 to participate in that month’s controversial placement, troubling questions have arisen about the state of Mr Kelleher’s finances, the extent to which he disclosed his financial difficulties and how these might have affected corporate decisions at New World. Would British private investors have been prepared to back a company, whose CEO had apparently defaulted on an outstanding $550,000 debt? More to the point what did New World’s Nomad Beaumont Cornish know about this? Surely mention of this live legal action should have been published in the original prospectus?
