(Sub-) Standard-listed AIQ… founding exec directors depart with immediate effect! Shame on you Andrew Monk

By Nigel Somerville | Wednesday 30 December 2020

Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours. I wrote this article myself, and it expresses my own opinions. I am not receiving compensation for it (other than from ShareProphets). I have no business relationship with any company whose stock is mentioned in this article.

Sub-Standard-listed AIQ has had a chequered history since it floated on the London Stock Exchange courtesy of Andrew Monk and VSA Capital. The founding executive directors’ full details had not been correctly disclosed, there was the mother of all shambles as IPO share certificates failed to arrive in a timely manner and at the same time a buying frenzy – perhaps by people who thought there was a relationship to Mama Captain (denied), the stock spent most of its first four months as a listed entity suspended and even a placing to address the IPO shambles was messed up. Meanwhile, the stock was trading (when not suspended) at a ridiculous premium to cash, with no business.
