I have already written to AIM Regulation and the FCA about Bidstack PLC (BIDS) about the way its CEO James Draper materially misled investors in a podcast with Justin the Clown on August 8 2019 with regard to half calendar year results. I trust that action will be taken. But I now have cause to write again on the matter of the full year lack of profits warning the company should be issuing and is not. The letter follows.
I asked you a week ago to nominate your Bulletin Board Moron of the week from the iii, LSE and ADVFN Asylums or from twitter. There were some great entries which, in a normal week, would have won, as you can see HERE. But..
Juicin can thank me later, but I am inspired by the most insane post I have seen in ages to bring back this contest for one week only. Surely no-one can beat the post below from the ADVFN Bidstack (BIDS) thread. If you find a better example of lunacy on twitter on on the iii, LSE or ADVFN Asylums post it in the comments section below before midnight on Sunday 13 October. Enjoy this treat...
My comrade Evil Banksta has today exposed how AIM listed Bulletin Board darling Bidstack (BIDS) has misled investors and is also clearly sitting on a lack of profits and sales warning. For the former naughtiness the FCA should open an enquiry at once into possible market abuse, for the latter AIM regulation must force a statement. Being a fine upstanding citizen I have today written to the regulators. My missive follows:
Let us be clear: bulletin board darling Bidstack (BIDS) has flouted AIM rules, it sitting on a profits warning & is grossly overvalued.
Sometimes I wonder if those running and advising companies and stupid or if they just think investors are? I guess in the case of Bidstack (BIDS) it might be fair to assume the latter, as it served up interims today.
I don’t generally invest in earlier stage tech companies due to the risk of failure, but I have been following the Bidstack Group (BIDS) story with interest. I’m fully aware that early stage companies in this sector often trade at a large premium to their valuation on paper, as the value is all about future potential and growth and there are examples out there of outfits that started out as small companies before seeing their technology really take off and are now worth a fortune. But this is rare and far more fail and ultimately end up worthless.
Finally, after almost three weeks of trying, and after I forced them to ‘fess with a scoop HERE, Bidstack (BIDS) and tawdry broker Optiva have managed to complete a placing. They were aiming to raise £5 million at 15p. Then it became 13.25p. The placing was completed at just 12.5p.
I have suggested in a number of recent bearcasts that Bidstack (BIDS) was the most over-ramped and overvalued stock on the AIM Casino and also that it would have to do a placing within six months to keep the show on the road. A City source has now provided me with more specific information, an offering is already underway but it is struggling.
