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.
Why do such a fund raise now folks ask? Because it can is the reason, thanks to thuggish share plugging involving bent journalism and forward selling, Versarien (VRS) has an extra £275,000 net cash. Versarien says it is going to be spent on growth opportunities and working capital but that is obviously a lie. Some may go on funding ongoing losses. It could go on giving Neill Ricketts a £197,000 payoff. Or….
You thought Ricketts had gone, he had resigned. Today’s bombshell expose HERE seems to have forced the hand of Versarien (VRS) and it has now ‘fessed up. Ricketts and the associated stench has not left the building after all ...
What on earth is actually going on at Versarien (VRS)? Sources within the company suggest that those who think loathsome, ex CEO as of 10 March, Neill Ricketts has left the company are very wide of the mark.
On Friday 10 March Versarien (VRS) announced that its disgraced CEO Neill Ricketts had resigned. It said it would determine the management structure going forward and Ricketts was not listed as a contact. But was that true?
At least Cowie, one of Britain’s most senior personal finance journalists, is honest that he is a poltroon, admitting to buying shares in Versarien (VRS) at 177p. They closed Friday at just 3.5p although in his column today where he explains why he is hanging on for a bounce, Cowie says the shares are 5p. But the dishonesty of the journalism is epic.
There seems some uncertainty among some investors as to the departure of the loathsome Neill Ricketts from cash strapped Versarien (VRS). Some still think he remains as a consultant or in some other role. Au contraire. He has left the building. And others seem to think he actually resigned. Again no, he was forced out by the board. I have been in contact with advisers on the subject of apologies, meanwhile Ricketts carries on lying.
