ShareProphets China AIM 'Filthy Forty' update – 1 Geong, Geong & another now Gone edition

By ShareProphets | Tuesday 13 February 2018


Who's followed the likes of Geong International and co in 'Geong, Geong' and then Gone? Who's in the 'Geong, Geong' stage and what does the 'Filthy Forty' look like now?

Of the AIM-remaining 9 from our previous update, Alpha Returns Group (ARGP) - suspended pending a replacement Nomad (and cash) after ZAI Corporate Finance's disqualification, updated that “it will not be possible to appoint a nominated adviser within the timeframe provided under the AIM rules”. As such, it's been another 'Filthy Forty' AIM cancellation. Meanwhile we await further news from HaiKe Chemical Group (HAIK) - it having stated there “critically difficult market conditions” and that the directors “are exploring options for the future strategy of the company, including a cancellation from AIM and continuing as a private company”. The full tale of woe follows...
