New World Oil & Gas shafts its shareholders to the bitter end

What is happening at New World Oil & Gas (NEW) is simply outrageous. This is fast becoming the perfect case study to demonstrate why AIM is in such desperate need of reform. Not content with the royal shafting it has already inflicted upon its shareholders, the wretched board of this wretched company has the nerve to claim its actions are being done in their interests. New non-executive chairman Chris Einchcomb must have had a good belly laugh when he said his fellow porcine directors are “committed to… maximising the value to shareholders and believes the actions taken above are important steps to achieving this”. Retaining Bill Kelleher on a consultancy contract so he can “repay” the loan he took out to participate in March 2013’ controversial placement is hardly the act of a board committed to maximising shareholder value. No, it’s more a case of the parasites bleeding every last drop from the now rotting carcass that has been such a generous meal to gorge upon. These people give leeches a good name.
