AIM-listed worthless and Covid-bandwagon POS Catenae updated the market this morning with three Holding in Company RNSs. There are a few lessons to learn…..!
This morning AIM-listed Catenae Innovations (CTEA) revealed the next steps in its Covid-19 spoof: its joint venture to Covid-19 test status app is being rolled out…..to what looks like a single GP practice in Newcastle. That may appear small beer already – not that this stopped the BB loons from piling in first thing this morning – but this roll-out is in fact just a proof-of-concept pilot.
On 20th May (Wednesday this week) 32 million Catenae (CTEA)shares issued at 1p will be admitted to AIM. Given that this company is almost certainly technically insolvent and is burning cash and that the shares trade at 2p+ what do you expect the spivs who backed the last placing to do? Exactly. And when they have finished dumping those pieces of confetti there are 16 million warrants with a 1.25p strike to consider…
Over the weekend I showed why the financials of Catenae (CTEA) made it the most worthless stock on AIM. But some folk think I ignore the Covid-19 project it is working ion. Au contraire, as a fascinating press release arrives in my in-box today I do not ignore the Covid hoo-hah I call, it out as a worthless promote.
At the half year ended 31 March 2019, Catenae (CTEA) had net liabilities of £389,980. After adding the net loss for the second half of £287,330 (based on unaudited full year loss of £789,565 less half year loss of £502,941 and extrapolating the loss for another 7 months to end of April 2020 of £335,000 (based on 2nd half year run rate) results in net liabilities of £1,022,310.
Last Friday I called the announcement by AIM-listed Catenae Innovation (CTEA) that it was joining a consortium to track Covid data, an absurd spoof. The only questions were how partner fm2x had worked with fellow partner Z/Yen for over 25 years when it had only been in existence for 13 years and at what price the placing would be. Yesterday Tom Winnifrith was even more specific, naming the placing price and that there would be warrants attached in his Bearcast. By the time his dulcet tones transferred from recording to the internet, Catenae announced a placing. So much for not knowing how to play this Covid game!...
That AIM-listed Catenae Innovations (CTEA) is in a state of technical insolvency is surely beyond question. Last night at 5.30pm – no-one-is-watching o’clock – the company announced the appointment of a new sole Broker in the form of Brandon Hill Capital and miraculously, this morning it has announced it has joined a consortium with the objective of building an identity documentation system to record an individual’s Covid-19 test status. Yes folks, this technically insolvent POS is trying to jump on the Coronavirus bandwagon! But this morning’s RNS has to questionable on at least one point…..
Tom Winnifrith and I have questioned AIM-listed Catenae Innovation (CTEA) several times over its solvency already, but yesterday’s admission that full-year numbers would be delayed to June and another thumping loss suggest that it is already well under water...
AIM dog Catenae Innovations (CTEA ) spent the latter part of last week contacting creditors persuading them to swap sums owed for equity in a truly shite deal for those owed cash. What it did not say is that at least one creditor was given a far better deal. Some, it seems, are more equal than others.
There is no answer to the question as to whether AIM-listed Catenae Innovation (CTEA) was trading whilst insolvent, as posed here. But what we do know is that the fat lady has finished her warm-up and is coming on stage: we learnt at 1.20pm on a Friday afternoon (AKA no-one-is-watching o’clock) that there is still no sign of the rescue bail-out funding hoped for on 11 January. And Catenae isn’t even sure whether the funds it hopes for will be in the form of equity or debt even if it does arrive. It doesn’t sound as though discussions have advanced very far, does it?
Following its rather smelly announcement after hours at no-one-is-watching o’clock on December 20 which offered up nice Christmas presents to shareholders in the form of a profit warning and a statement that its financial position was weak, AIM-listed Catenae Innovation (CTEA) followed up yesterday at 12.23pm (lunchtime on a Friday, no-one-is-watching o’clock) with a further announcement that it still not agreed the hoped-for £100,000 bailout and that absent new funding it will be a trip to the corporate undertakers. Nigel did warn you but there is a bigger question....
Following last week’s admission that despite deals signed with Bradford City FC and Southend United Community and Educational Trust last Thursday but by Friday (after-hours) a profit warning had to be issued, AIM-listed Catenae Innovations (CTEA) has announced that the proposals put to a GM yesterday were passed…….and its sole NED (apart from the Interim Chairman) has resigned with immediate effect. Oh, and its financial position continues to be dire. The shares are off by 23% since my last warning over the weekend, but it seems there is more to come.
Catenae Innovation (CTEA) snuck out another profit warning on Friday at 5.02pm – truly no-one-is-watching o’clock, telling the market that its trading performance continues to be below management expectations as notified on 11 September and its financial position remains weak. Oh dear, of dear – things aren’t getting any better for the former Milestone Group (MSG) showing once again that Warren Buffett’s adage that when a bad company meets good (or only slightly better) management, it is the reputation for the former which prevails.
I’ve never been able to see any value in Catenae Innovation (CTEA) and haven’t been surprised to see the share price collapse, but an attempt to give it a pump now seems to be underway – which I’d expect given that a placing can’t be that far away!

It seems to be the season for big share price rises off of the back of very little in the way of substance across quite a few companies at the lower end of AIM at the moment!
Comedy from across the pond where things have taken a turn for the worse for ex-Milestone favourite Lyin' Larry Cummins and his latest ex-employer, Black Cactus Global (OTC: BLGI), which has been forced to put out a hilarious mea culpa. Wonder who’s been ramping wildly?
