Advisors to AIM listed companies get paid fees. Moolah. Money. Hard cash to spend on coke and hookers. That is the way of the world. But, for some folks, that is not enough.
Nicola Horlick, the self proclaimed "superwoman," is one hell of a self important ghastly stain on the UK financial services industry as we have noted many timec on this website. But her ex husband Tim is a bit of a character too. Thanks to Winnileaks we can now bring you an email from his former business partner Diogo Cavaco which accuses Tim of wholesale insider dealing in the shares of Pathfinder Minerals (PFP) giveing chapter and verse on what went on. When I questionned Tim's share dealings in Pathfinder back in early 2014 I found myself on the receiving end of menacing and threatening emails from Horlick's evil PR man Damian "spawn of Satan" McCrystal. In light of the explosive email below I invite McCrystal to go fuck himself. Natch, I draw no conclusions myself, but have passed the email from Horlick's ex business partner on to AIM Regulation and to the FCA. It reads:
I am a bit confused. As I understood it the new management team at Pathfinder Minerals (PFP) had great contacts out in Bongo Bongo land and were going to sort out the mess whereby the company's main asset had gone AWOL in Mozambique with locals claiming ownership. Today we are told that Pathfinder will pay some johnnies in South Africa £1 million (which it does not have) to sort this out. So what is the board doing for its money? Whatever... I am confused. Richard Jennings of Align says he is not and that the shares - which Align owns - are cheap. Here is his reasoning...
After years of earning £170,000 as a reward for being a total disaster as CEO of Pathfinder Minerals (PFP), the new board has taken just ten days to part company with Nick “not for the many but for the Trew” but massive questions remain.
We have news today that Pathfinder Minerals (PFP) has a new Nomad and broker in Strand Hanson and two new directors in Simon Farrell and Scott Richardson Brown. The former becomes non exec chairman replacing disgraced Nick not for the many but for the Trew but, Trew remains on the board. This is not good enough. It is time to drain the swamp. And it can be done at once. Here's why.
