We tipped these shares a couple of weeks ago for a third time. The shares are now 2.7p in the middle and so even at the bid we are up on this one. But our target to sell at 3.5p+ so there is more to go for. Our original share tip reads:

In the most recent statement from LGO Energy (LGO) much was made about how the board was showing restraint at the corporate trough. Shareholders may have seen the shares collapse from 6p+ to just 0.11p but "we are all in it together". Nope! This is a smokescreen.

Having ramped its shares up to 0.15p by pretending that the refinacing of its bank debt was by anything other than a death spiral and with some huffy puffy claptrap about new drilling, LGO Energy (LGO) got back to what it does best today, a placing to dilute yet again.

I almost feel sorry for LGO Energy (LGO) CEO Neil Ritson. He just seems to have rotten luck. This time last year a contractor dropped some kit down a bore hole. Wind on 12 months and Hurricane Matthew has caused a few "problemos". Neil, put a few extra quid in the collection box this Sunday, you need the Almighty back on side for today's third quarter update is piss poor and begs the statement "placing ahoy."

Hapless Neil Ritson of LGO Energy (LGO) is doing yet another ramptastic interview with BRR Media, the company that charges PLCs who want to ramp worthless shares to record interviews with easy questions. The webinar is at 11 AM on Friday and has asked that questions be sent over to [email protected] I am a nice guy and always keen to help so here are 25 for starters:

Last week LGO Energy (LGO) had a keep the lights on placing at 0.1p, just four months after the prior keep the lights on placing at 0.2p. As I noted today, the next keep the lights on placing will be at 0.05p and within two months. But it is good to see that a company that is spunking £150,000 a month to money heaven still has spare cash for important things...

Half year numbers from LGO Energy (LGO) are absolutely appalling. There was a placing at just 0.1p last week, another one is imminent. The numbers just do not lie. It is hard to know where to start but lets go with output and sales....do you remember when LGO used to be producing 2,500 bopd and promising 4,000 bopd: how things change.

It was about a year ago that I had a spat with my good pal Big Dave Lenigas when he denied my assertion that LGO Energy (LGO) was about to place. Naturally it did. As I have indicated in recent weeks that another bailout blizzard of confetti was on the way there was not even an attempt to deny from camp LGO this time around. I have oft suggested that the next bailout would be at 0.1p. Just call me mystic fucking Meg please...

Eight days ago I predicted that Solo Oil (SOLO) would need to do a placing and suggested that 0.18p was the likely price. Well knock me down with a feather duster but it has today announced a placing to raise £2 million ( lets call it £1.85 million net) at, cue drum roll.....0.18p. Genius or what? Of course Solo is still rubber ducked as I shall explain. The shares at 0.23p remain a sell.

So what if LGO has been drowning in debt, breaching banking covenants, have to get away placing after placing just to keep the lights on, let's ensure that vital corporate expenditure is not reduced. Sod drilling oil wells to increase output...this is how Neil Ritson spunked a quarter of a million of shareholder's cash in April 2015

Earlier this week Solo Oil (SOLO) announced quite startling news - that it was to lapse an option to buy an additional 1.25% stake in the Kiliwani gas field a deal first announced back in February of this year. This leaves Solo's stake at 7.125% but begs very serious questions of Neil Ritson's floundering company. Is bankruptcy looming and is Kiliwani not living up to the hype?

I take my hat off to Neil Ritson, the hapless CEO of LGO Energy (LGO), as he does not seem keen to disclose more information about how his company is doing. Unfortunately the information is underwhelming and as the company's cash runs out and the next bailout placing looms the shares are set to head only one way. And it is not up.

Oh dear Oh dear, things are looking ever bleaker for Neil Ritson and AIM dog with fleas LGO Energy (LGO). Interims out next month will be diabolical, the cash position by now is looking grimmer than a wet Thursday in Scunthorpe and ramptastic announcements are just not having any impact on the share price, surely it is time to bring back Big Dave Lenigas. Cometh the day and all that.

You cannot keep a good stock promoter down. And say what you want about him , and I do, David Lenigas is pretty good at promoting, usually worthless, shares and he is back. In case you had not noticed he has rejoined the board of two of his former charges in the past week. I have today spoken by email with the big man.

The shares hit 0.17p yesterday which for the morons who backed the last bailout placing at 0.2p a few weeks ago will be painful. Or rather it would have been had they not already flipped which they have. But now, having had to accelerate payments to the Froggie bankers, and with output numbers ever more dire a new placing is needed so how to stop the rot...it has worked before..

Jeepers, if turd polishing was an olympic sport Neil Ritson of LGO Energy (LGO) would be battling for a place, after so much practice he has acqusired a certain skill. But a turd is - however polished - still a turd and that brings us to the statement today from POS LGO.

Announcing your annual results at 1.38 PM ensures that some folks will miss the horrors you reveal. London's most useless Nomad, Mr Roland "fatty" Cornish will just be starting course two of four and so will not be back at his desk until the next trading day. So there is some point in sneaking out the bad news in the middle of the day. And that brings me to the trainwreck with Neil Ritson at the wheel, but David Lenigas driving from the back seat, LGO Energy (LGO).

Hat tip to reader Steve but it seems as if Neil Ritson of LGO Energy (LGO) is talking with forked tongue. I refer to what is - or is not - happing at its dog of a Spanish operation.

It has been suggested by Duck & Dive and repeated by other poltroons on LGO Energy (LGO) Bulletin Boards, that in my last article it was unfair to 'confuse' reactivations with re-completions as it is a case of drawing conclusions about the depletion rates of apples with the depletion rates of oranges. In answer to this criticism, I would stress firstly, that it was Neil Ritson who framed the terms in which he sought to demonstrate that wells in the Goudron Sandstone deplete slowly. I will quote him again.
Published 996 days ago
LGO Energy (LGO) shareholders have a habit of taking every production figure that LGO releases and reasoning their way a priori to envelope that figure within a schema of general conventional oil production far into the distant future without factoring in the overwhelming rates of depletion at the field. Essentially this is a wilful ignoring of the empirical evidence of decline. This falls squarely within Einstein's definition of insanity as making the same set of assumptions over and over again and expecting different results.

As we know, having failed to get away a £6 million placing a few weeks ago (raising just £1.3 million) LGO Energy (LGO) will not be able to make its scheduled bank repayment in May and so faces another insolvency risk. Hence it is ramping for all its worth to issue yet more confetti, now that it had permissions to issue 1.6 billion more shares. And thus today's pitiful release below. It is what hapless CEO Neil Ritson does NOT say that matters.

Yesterday on the back of news from the Kiliwani gas field in bongo bongo land Neil Ritson, gopher to the fat aussie share ramper David Lenigas seemed keen to let share trading morons across the land know how exciting this was for Solo Oil (SOLO).

LGO has been flagging that this would happen for months but now that the royalty rates on Goudron have been cut, Neil Ritson is announcing the news as if it was the second coming of Jesus. It is not.

This company is still screwed and more confetti issues are ineviable ahead of its next formal debt repayment default in May.

Yesterday as LGO Energy (LGO) raised £1.36 million gross, I published the emails showing how David Lenigas stated that the company needed £5-6 million to turn around. Even that was a lie predicated on silly output projections, but on the sums raised LGO is just fucked, it has merely postponed crunch time from April ( 2-3 weeks) to May, lets call it 7 weeks.

LGO Energy (LGO) has announced that it has raised £1.36 million in a placing at 0.25p and also that contractors have agreed to take payment of £590,000 of debts at the same price. This is a disastrous snub from the London Markets to David Lenigas as it was he who led this attempted bailout and mug punters were being promised a £5 million raise as you can see in leaked email correspondence below. Neil Ritson the hapless CEO of LGO admits that this is not enough, stating in the release:

Five days ago we revealed that David Lenigas himself was trying to arrange a £5 million bailout placing for insolvent LGO Energy (LGO) which would see Jabba go back on the board and hapless CEO Neil Ritson pushed into the long grass a couple of months later. We have emails from broker Dowgate to potential investors explaining Jabba's plans and saying that the placing would close well before the end of last week. There has been no RNS. Clearly - and not surprisingly - the placement is struggling big time and so LGO has today released ramptastic bollocks from Goudron to try to spoof punters into backing the bailout.

Solo Oil (SOLO) the David Lenigas created POS cannot stop telling us more ramptastic news from Horse Hill yet its shares are sliding again today. Why?

I make this two confetti issues by floundering LGO Energy (LGO) in the three months since Jabba The Hutt, aka David Lenigas, dissed me on twitter for saying a placing was inevitable. The bad news is that there is a far larger share issue still needed. The good news, for the fat Aussie share ramper at least, is that he sold most of his LGO shares (if not all) last year without disclosing it as he should have done. So it is not his problem.

It is suggested by some who still believe in David Lenigas that he has not in fact sold any shares in LGO Energy (LGO) while telling us all how cheap they were but has merely shifted stock into Nominee accounts.

Naturally anyone associated with David Lenigas must be a respected industry figure whose integrity is beyond doubt. You can trust every word said by men such as Steve “I said that there were 100 billion barrels on camera but deny that I said it” Sanderson of UK Oil & Gas (UKOG). And so it is a given that LGO Energy (LGO) has been upfront about its Goudron 678 well issues is it not?

Investing does not have to be hard. If you see a company with a weak balance sheet and burning cash you should expect a placing.

Big David Lenigas should be first in line.

Solo Oil (SOLO) is one of a few AIM listed oil companies where there is activity on most fronts. The hot front to the south sees Solo progress gas exploration in Tanzania. The cold front in England sees Solo progress its oil exploration at Horse Hill. All eyes are on these two beasts after resource upgrades and the share price has rocketed to 0.6p making Solo worth £30 million. But there are great reasons to think this will at least halve by 2016.

The tweets of David Lenigas have been controversial in the past - see here - but now another episode comes to light which appears to beggar belief. Quite simply Mr Lenigas appears to have made tweet claims about Horse Hill which his own team says are untrue. For the avoidance of doubt I am a shareholder in a HH company (UK Oil & Gas) and I reckon oil will be found but that does not excuse what has gone on.
