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.

If a company undertakes a related party deal, its Nomad must approve, it must be declared as such in an RNS and the auditors must flag this up in the annual report and opine, in accordance with International Standards on Auditing 550 Related Parties, that the deal is kosher, that there is no “transfer of assets from or to management or others at amounts significantly above or below market value”. AIM dog Alien Metals (UFO) appears to have done at least two massive related party deals, implicating ALL of its three directors and with financier Richard Shemasian, brother of infamous promoter Mick, at the centre of the web and has declared neither. Its shares should be suspended at once until everything is out in the open and investigated.
