I have commented on I3Energy (I3E) over the last few days concluding this company is uninvestable and noting the company Nomad seems to agree with me. After market close on Friday the company PR man issued an e-mail update to some shareholders. It confirms my thinking. This company is utterly uninvestable at best.
I3Energy (I3E) has caused Gary Newman and then I to comment. It’s also caused the Nomad and Broker WH Ireland to comment. I called for the company to clarify what the heck was going on and it looks like WH Ireland agrees with me- it seems to have no more idea than I do! How can the company’s nomad and broker decline to put any value on the equity? Perhaps fair equity value is less than the debt? What a farce!
Gary Newman is a fine chap and a fine writer who I am delighted to have as a colleague. But I must take him to task for a tweet he sent last night where he is just plain wrong. The subject is i3 Energy (i3E).
I3Energy (I3E) told us about the disappointing results from its LPt-02 well on Tuesday this week. Gary Newman commented on this and concluded the jury was out on it being a stock to buy or sell or hold. I am rather less positive for a number of reasons. I sold, and remain negative on fundamentals.
Any negative news on an oil drill tends to see the share price getting hammered, and that is exactly what has happened today after I3 Energy (I3E) announced that a pilot well had failed to hit the reservoir that it was targeting.
I3 Energy (I3E) has had a bit of a bumpy ride of late, largely thanks to some untrue rumours which were being spread by certain individuals on social media, but the uncertainty has now been resolved following the latest news from the company...
Smaller North Sea oil and gas companies seem to be out of favour, as investors go chasing big profits in riskier, less proven parts of the world, but more often than not the outcome tends to be heavy losses on these types of outfits.
i3 Energy (13E) floated at 55p earlier this week. Its shares now trade at just 34.5p to sell. Even by the standards of the AIM Casino this has been a god-awful IPO. But it is going to get an awful lot worse.
It was only a couple of months ago, on May 10 - 6 months behind schedule - when wannabee North Sea oil developer i3 Energy (I3E) announced it was to raise up to $50 million as it joined AIM. Since then, as we have noted before, there have been numerous false starts and it was obvious to all concerned - bar Amanda Van Dyke's related party snakefest Glenwick (GWIK) - that the fundraise was in deep merde. Oh yes. Party on bear dudes. This IPO has bombed and the business model is mega-fucked.
