Pure Gold – Pure Tragedy: Why Has The FCA Not Pulled The Plug?

By Nigel Somerville | Friday 4 November 2022

Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours. I wrote this article myself, and it expresses my own opinions. I am not receiving compensation for it (other than from ShareProphets). I have no business relationship with any company whose stock is mentioned in this article.

I am once again nursing a hefty hangover in the wake of too much Ouzo on Cornflakes with regard to sub-Standard-Listed Pure Gold (PUR). Having warned and warned over this situation, it now finds itself in the Canadian equivalent of bankruptcy protection, has closed its gold mine (so has no income, but you can bet the plc bills are still coming in), was $13 million short of technical solvency BEFORE debts owed to Sprott with regard to working capital and on Wednesday the Toronto stock exchange dumped its shares of the Venture exchange in favour of a NEX listing on that side of the pond. Why, oh why has the FCA – the (no sniggering at the back) regulator of the Standard List – not acted to suspend the shares over here, pending financial clarification?
