Featuring words and a prize competition from Mr Lucian Miers, words from Mr Evil Knievil, and the giving of awards for:

IPO of the year – an objective award for the IPO which moves most rapidly from IPO to suspended pending clarification.
The Darwin award – an objective award for the company that destroyed most market capitalisation in the 12 months prior to its shares being suspended pending clarification.
Entrepreneur of the year – which AIM CEO has destroyed value most spectacularly in the past year.
PLC Pig of the year – which AIM CEO or Chairman was most grotesquely over-remunerated relative to performance.
Cesspit lie of the year – which RNS issued during the year by an AIM listed company was most misleading.
Cesspit deal of the year – which merger or acquisition of the past year did the most to destroy value.
Cesspit entrepreneur of the year, the most coveted award, handed out to the man or woman whose over promotion of a stock, under-delivery and ability to destroy value has done most to contribute to making the Cesspit regarded as it is today.
