The tweet below is the latest pathetic attempt to ramp shares in Versarien (VRS) so that it can get away one last placing before June and avoid insolvency. In pushing the fantasy that the company will soon be awash with grant money David Burton of Total Market Solutions fails to mention a number of critical points.
At the top of the results statement covering the six months to December 31, serial dog Mosman Oil & Gas (MSMN) yaks on about how there will be lots of jam, sorry oil, tomorrow. That will please the morons. I doubt they will look at the hard numbers for they are awful and show that this company is already, to all intents and purposes, insolvent. And then there is an explicit warning from Mosman itself….
Oh dear, oh dear, as the disgraced share tipster "old mother" Mike Walters used to say when one of his many disastrous share tips collapsed. Versarien (VRS) is just the sort of blue sky company churning out lies and issuing new shares whenever it could that would have attracted Walters, like shit attracts flies. That even Walters did not tip Versarien tells you something. Today we have an AGM in Cheltenham and the statement from chair Diane Savory has just been released. It is dire. Everything is for sale, it is cash crisis ahoy!
The FCA is already all over this. Activist asset manager Tariq Hamoodi has, care off his lawyers Pallas Partners, sent a stinging letter to the entire board of Nanoco (NANO) alleging industrial scale wrong doing by them and investors Richard Griffiths and Lombard Odier. Hamoodi has demanded that the board step down at once. He tells me that if the directors do not do the honourable thing and walk, he will call an EGM to force the issue.
It’s all an all share merger of equals, each side getting 50% of the enlarged equity, with every Cenkos shareholder getting 3.19420647 New FinnCap Shares for every one Cenkos held. A marriage of equals you say? That is to say two businesses that have been equally disastrous investments. Merge two bad companies and what do you get?
The AGM of Versarien (VRS) will be held on 29 March, just 6 days time in Gloucester. If there was anything good to say, chairwoman Diane Savory would be giving a long talk. But there will be nothing to say so we will not be told if odious ex CEO Neill Ricketts has been paid off and if he has, at what cost. Critically you can bet the ranch that Versarien will not ‘fess up how little cash it has left. Put it this way…
Every year since its IPO Verditek (VDTK) has announced a big new contract win, spiking its shares, and allowing to get a bailout placing away to keep the Fat Lady at bay for another year. Then it admits that the contract has come to nowt. With its cash set to run out by June it has today announced a new contract. Is this the boy crying wolf yet again? Or is there a real wolf this time.
