BREAKING: Purplebricks business sold for £1 to Strike – shareholders to get just 0.65p next year! (or less!)

By Tom Winnifrith, the Sheriff of AIM | Wednesday 17 May 2023

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.

Oh dear, oh dear. Shares in the online estate agency Purplebrcks (PURP) once traded at more than 500p as Neil Woodford filled his boots (with other folks cash) and commentators such as the shop worker Paul Scott gushed about how disruptive the cash guzzling company that ripped off its customers by taking payment even though most properties were not sold, was going to be. Today the business, nearly all the assets (bar £5.5 million of cash) and the liabilities are being sold for just one quid to SPV Strike. What will shareholders get? If they are lucky 0.65p in Q1 2024.
