Versarien shares now 99.95% down from September 2018 peak – a cartoon from the heyday

By Tom Winnifrith, the Sheriff of AIM | Friday 19 January 2024

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.

Just over five years ago the shares were 182.5p. Today they are struggling to hold 0.09p. You must forgive my schadenfreude as this company’s biggest critic but its shareholders, egged on by repellent founder Neill Ricketts, trolled me – as did Neil himself – on twitter, discussed having me killed in chatrooms and also plotted to get my wife sacked by her University. So I delight in how such folks have lost a fortune. You may remember how one such poltroon produced cartoons mocking and lambasting myself and also Lucian Miers. As a reminder, here is one gem. It has not aged well.
