Challenger Acquisitions: Oh, oh, the wheel has finally stopped turning – could this be the end?

Published 14 days ago

Not that Challenger Acquisitions (CHAL) has bothered with an RNS but the wheels are literally falling off here with disastrous news pertaining to its only real asset, the New York Wheel. If you haven’t got out already I suggest you do so now and save a few pennies while you can.

Not all alternative financings are death spirals - the case of Red Rock Resources

Published 28 days ago

The other day Red Rock Resources (RRR) announced a deal to fund the Steelmin smelter in Bosnia which involved some alternative financing from Yorkville. At once the critics of boss Andrew Bell - of whom there are more than a few - screamed "death spiral, dilution, the man hads gone mad." A few critics disagreed, arguing that Bell had always been mad. But perhaps before leaping to conclusions it is worth looking atnthe actual structure of the deal?

Xtract Resources: Plus ca change - more delays, more ramping and more dilution (plus a Royal Ascot tip)

Published 38 days ago

I thought I would pause before commenting on yesterday’s RNS from Xtract Resources (XTR) relating to the Manica alluvials as I felt it was odds-on that more dilution would come from one source or another following the ramping off the back of it. Surprise, surprise, Yorkville cashed in and announced a loan note conversion today, but let’s take a closer look at the announcements in any event.

Challenger Acquisitions: Shameful rampathon – the FCA should investigate

Published 66 days ago

Any reader of my pieces will know I hold Challenger Acquisitions (CHAL) in pretty low regard but the outrageous ramping that has now gone on for the last four trading days is an absolute disgrace and the FCA should take a look. I’ll explain.

‘Kin ‘ell, Steve, you missed a trick or two, what are you playing at? Where’s the warm welcome back for L1 Capital?

Published 70 days ago

I’ve been away for a few days so just catching up on matters and first things first, I need to pick up my normally excellent colleague, Steve Moore, on a couple of glaring ommissions in his piece on Kin Group (KIN) and its funding announcement earlier this week. It was rather rude after all to not give a warm welcome to an old friend.

Xtract Resources: More dilution – it’s a damn addiction!

Published 112 days ago

Just catching up with an after-hours RNS from Xtract Resources (XTR) on Wednesday and although I was hoping for an update on how it is going to finance Manica, it was in fact just more dilution taking the total number of shares to over 34 billion…..with more to come...

Xtract Resources – Just when you thought it was safe to get back in the water…..an almighty PUMP and DUMP!

Published 162 days ago

I started writing this article on Xtract Resources (XTR) yesterday morning and was going to comment on how sentiment was turning and Colin Bird’s straightforward approach in recent RNS’s was to be applauded and then – WHAM - a placing RNS from hell and I’ve had to rewrite the whole piece. Thanks Colin!

Xtract Resources – Massive dilution ahead….but will it actually help?

Published 224 days ago

Earlier this week, Xtract Resources (XTR) announced an upcoming EGM to authorise the issuance of a further 9 billion shares, a mere 50% of the current share capital! Sounds like a lot but one needs to have a look again at the last heavily dilutive funding round in November to ascertain whether this is actually going to help.

Servision - vulture loan keeps it afloat for a couple of months

Published 233 days ago

My analysis of interim results from AIM dog Servision (SEV) which came out in September was that it was not generating cash and that its balance sheet was a trainwreck. I summarise of course but you can see the full analysis here.

VAST after-hours comedy warrants ShareProphets RNS Translation Service

Published 250 days ago

At 6.15pm on Friday – truly no-one-is-watching o’clock – AIM-listed Vast Resources (VAST) released an RNS detailing the exercise of warrants and consequent issue of equity. It is comedy central. Perhaps readers can explain the 10% commission part…..

Xtract Resources – Funding RNS obfuscation at its worst: disappointing

Published 267 days ago

I was starting to warm to Colin Bird at Xtract Resources (XTR) with his decisive action and straight-talking, although today’s hugely disappointing funding RNS which needs about five reads and three espressos to understand leaves me feeling cold, although I’m guessing Beaufort Securities and Beaumont Cornish should shoulder some of the blame.

Frontera Resources – After the pump…….

Published 269 days ago

Having pumped up the share price at the start of last week with yet another ramptastic operations update, all rather predictably comes the dump. This morning AIM-listed Frontera Resources (FRR) announced the draw-down of another £382,550 under a Standby Equity Distribution Agreement (SEDA) – for which read death spiral – with YA II PN Ltd (for which read Yorkville). Another wheelbarrow-load of confetti, 402,684,211 shares, has been issued at 0.095p per share. We are told this will be used to advance work programs of the Company.

Servision - overtakes the fraud African Potash with the most expensive loan in AIM history - 33%

Published 301 days ago

Servision (SEV) has today announced its interim results and they are dismal. The company is bust and why it's advisors (Nomad Allenby, broker Belfort Securities & PR himbo Christian Taylor Wilkinson at Cadogan Leander) do not call it a day and walk defies belief. It shows all three are morally bankrupt.The results are analysed in a bearcast special HERE. But I flag up in itw own right a loan Servision has taken from Yorkville which seems to be the new, most expensive loan , in AIM Casino history - at 33% - it is 5 percentage points dearer than the loan the FRAUD African Potash (AFPO) took out from Katrina Clayton, the wife of its FD. Frankly Servision would be better off borrowing on Christian T-W's credit card and splitting the difference.

Frontera Resources – Red Flags for breakfast, anyone? SELL!

DIRECTOR PURCHASES SHARES screams the headline – in capitals - of an RNS from AIM-listed Frontera Resources (FRR) - not to be confused with Frontier Resources - this morning. Ooooh quick, let’s all pile in – follow the money, as they say, because the insiders know what’s really going on. Er, hang on a moment….

Frontera Resources shareholders will be diluted into oblivion!

In a market filled with companies that have wasted a small fortune and haven’t got a lot to show for it, Frontera Resources still manages to stand out from the rest as having taken both to a new level!

Servision – increased undrawn SEDA Death Spiral which it does not intend to draw?

Published 384 days ago

Tom Winnifrith has stuck the knife into AIM-listed Servision plc (SEV) more times than Avanti (AVN) has missed performance targets – see HERE. And so today we learn that the company has amended the terms of a financing package with YA II PN Ltd (otherwise known as Yorkville) which involved a loan agreement backed by a standby equity distribution agreement (SEDA) – for that, read “death spiral”. But the comedy is in the text of the RNS.

Challenger Acquisitions - this will be a slow motion car crash

Published 565 days ago

Challenger Acquisitions (CHAL) was always going to be a car-crash in slow motion. The IPO on 19 February 2015 raised £1.1 million with significant support from Yorkville Advisors so Challenger started life as a public company with a 30% overhang. It then funded its first acquisition, the investment in the New York Wheel, via £3 million of relatively short-term convertible debt – there was clearly potential for death spiral funding to come.

Details on what to do can be obtained by emailing [email protected]  - the rats are already deserting but the confetti issuance also continues.
