The death of Iconic Labs Part 1 - is Katharine Lewis committing what used to be a criminal offence?

After yesterday’s debacle, Katharine Lewis, is now the sole remaining director of Iconic (ICON) which means it is breach of the 2006 Companies Act which requires all public companies to have at least two directors.  However, that is the least of her worries.  The main concern, and one which should be getting the appropriate professional and legal advice about is Iconic currently trading whilst insolvent and should she ask for the shares to be suspended whilst it clarifies its financial position?  Trading whilst insolvent was until recently, for a director, a Criminal Offence. It should be again.

Iconic Labs – just how chasmous is the balance sheet hole?

Following Iconic (ICON), revealing that it was subject to an alleged claim by European High Growth Opportunities Securitization Fund, EGHOF, the subsequent criticism by OTT Holdings Limited and the Director’s weak response since the share price of Iconic fell by around 50% from 0.012 pence on 13 January to a new low bid price of 0.006 pence. The stock has since rallied by 23% but is this a dead cat bounce?

Iconic Labs – how big is the EGHOS debt dispute and why was OTT Holdings kept in the dark?

Cash guzzling POS Iconic (ICON) faces a 15% shareholder wishing to oust the board, OTT, and a legal claim from death spiral provider European High Growth Opportunities Securitization Fund, EGHOF, which it airily dismisses as baseless. It is wrong to do so and here is why.

SHOCKER: Iconic Labs – the cost of the EGHOS facility and the missing post balance sheet events disclosures

Yesterday I provided a detailed analysis of the shocking numbers from Iconic Labs (ICON) HERE. But drilling down further there are even more shockers emerging.

Iconic discounted placing and a new deception - if this RNS is not misleading I am a banana

Iconic Labs (ICON) has a history of deceiving investors as long as your arm. That history today got even longer with City penny stock shufflers Shard Capital at the heart of the latest deception.  The RNS reads: “Firm Placing, End of EHGOF Share Issuances and New Conventional Debt Facility. “ But that simply is not true.

Iconic Labs – Glimpse Protocol Limited another deal courtesy of Toxic Dave Sefton

On 30 September 2020, Iconic Labs (ICON) announced a Partnership with leading Ad-tech tech provider with the first paragraph stating “Iconic Labs Plc (LSE:ICON), a multidivisional new media and technology business, today announces that after a successful trial Iconic Labs has signed a commercial partnership agreement with Glimpse Protocol, a leading provider of advanced technologies to Ad-tech.”

Iconic Labs – time for some honest answers

Of course there really is more chance of me shagging Cheryl Cole than of this happening. But let’s hope for it anyway. How many of the current wave of enthusiastic shareholders who piled in to the grossly misleading announcements starting on September 10 understand that there could still be much more share dilution still to come?  There are three separate financing instruments under which Iconic (ICON) can be required to issue shares for and they are as follows:

Iconic Labs – More evidence of Toxic Dave Sefton’s close relationship with Iconic and about his new £1.45 million purchase

Linton Capital LLP, an investment company run by Toxic Dave Sefton, has been busy putting in place the arrangements to buy the Joe Media businesses in the UK – even though Joe Media may, as I exposed a day or so ago, be going seriously off the rails.  A recently filed security agreement now to be found at Companies House dated 9 July 2020, indicates that Toxic Dave, Linton Capital LLP and Greencastle MM Limited have entered into an agreement with BPC Ireland Designated Activity Company not to exceed £3,787,000 and any interest due and payable.

Uber ramped worthless POS Iconic Labs: are the wheels coming off Joe Media’s business already?

No news is bad news and here is why Iconic (ICON) seems to be sitting on bags of bad news. Will this company, still being run as a shadow director, by toxic David Sefton come clean? This is what it needs to clarify…

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Will Asimilar be the much deserved Waterloo of Chris Akers? This stinks!

I start with a brief discussion of Rule Britannia where it is clear that the BBC and others (including the Mrs) have not actually read the words or studied their history. I will do a much longer piece on this when back from seeing my father in Shipston. I look at Asimilar (ASLR), All Active Asset Capital (AAA), Mesh PLC, and Chris Akers – a scandal where the unravel is surely underway. I comment on DFS (DFS) and furlough economics, on Iconic Labs (ICON), and on Amigo (AMGO) as well as on Xtract Resources (XTR), where there is yet more good news making you who followed my tip and I who bought shares even richer. Also covered is NoGold who has no gold exposure and lambasts me for tipping gold shares and making you all richer… even more of a miserable old git.

Iconic Labs – a catalogue of excuses, forced to 'fess up by our exposes

At 5.07 PM yesterday, AKA no one is watching o’clock, after a series of exposes on this website, about its failure to tell the truth to investors Iconic (ICON) issued an “Update on Joe Media and Other Business Update.” It vomited up a series of excuses for failing to conclude deals previously announced and forthcoming dire results with minimal turnover and significant losses.  The text in bold is what we imagined Directors were thinking as they drafted this statement.

Iconic Labs – 2 “deals” it announced but has not un-announced

Everything about Iconic labs (ICON) is toxic as we have exposed so many times HERE. Not least is the way it happily deceives investors. This worthless lie generating POS should be slung off the markets at once.  In order to keep its death spiral funding going Iconic likes to trumpet new deals but is a shy in highlighting that they did not in fact occur. For instance take the Social Alchemist and Medium Channel Media deals that were announced.

Red Flag Alert: Iconic Labs – How strong is the Directors track record in creating shareholder value?

Worthless new media POS Iconic (ICON) is promoted on the strengths of its three Directors John Quinlan, Liam Harrington and Sam Asante in social media as the extract from page 38 of the prospectus indicates:

Iconic Labs – Toxic David Sefton still behind the scenes pulling strings working with Tory MP Damian Collins

On 30 December 2019, as I highlighted in my article of the same day, toxic Dave Sefton resigned from Board of Iconic (ICON) admitting that he had become a PR liability following a series of exposes on this website about how he had used company funds at Anglo African Oil & Gas (AAOG) to benefit his private interests and had then lied about repaying those funds which he has still not done in full.Sefton is thus utterly toxic but behind the scenes and a trio of directors each earning £200,000, toxic Dave remains very much active behind the scenes at this company operating with almost no revenue and racking up steep losses..  He is involved in both Infotagion and also the London Economic deals that Iconic has announced.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Bat soup worries - should we sell becuase of the China Virus?

In short no, although this virus could well be far larger than some folks (Lucian) think. Elsewhere I discuss useless research from broker Goetz and Optibiotix (OPTI), Future (FUTR), Amigo (AMGO), Iconic (ICON), Oracle (ORCP) and Petra Diamonds (PDL)

FREE Podcast: ShareProphets Radio Edition TWENTY ONE with Tom Winnifrith - what does it mean to generate cash, fake & real claims

There are no guests in this week’s show which is sponsored by Open Orphan PLC (ORPH). It is just me once again sitting in the Welsh Hovel as the flood waters rise. I start with a red flags special on Iconic Labs (ICON). The company is an irrelevant and wofrthless POS but the red flags are interesting. Then it is onto a company where I demonstyrated compelling red flags six years ago but I’ve had to be patient. Finally, using Fulham, Shore (FUL) as a case study I look in real detail at why claims that company’s generate positive operating cashflow can be so misleading and why this is so important.If you like this and can’t wait seven days for more of the same and are tired of being a cheapskate you should listen to my Bearcast every day.

Iconic Labs – why cannot it get straight its story on Gay Star News?

Oh dear, oh dear, Iconic Labs (ICON), run by toxic Dave Sefton of Anglo African Oil & Gas infamy, has issued another statement on its acquisition of the LGBTI website Gay Star News. And it is still misleading its legion of daft followers. Why cannot it get the story straight. I provide, in bold, the ShareProphets translation service below.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Sith Lord Zak Mir to enter the eighth circle of hell tomorrow, or is it the 4th?

Yes my good friend is going to the AIM Awards dinner now that he is an evil PR man (for Bigdish Ventures (DISH). Elsewhere I discuss the news about the Thomas Cook (TCG) stores and the lesson for Sirius Minerals (SXX). I look at Reabold (RBD), Brady (BRY) and Iconic Labs (ICON) as it serves up a bollocks packed RNS.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: which thick fecks are buying shares in Thomas Cook?

The Independent Newspaper thinks that I and 17.4 million others need a better education. Does anyone read that rag anymore? In today’s podcast I look at Neil Woodford’s Woodford Patient Capital Trust (WPCT), notably its holdings in Autolus and Purplebricks (PURP) in light of data out today, Eve Group (EVE), Nigel Wray’s Simba, Thomas Cook (TCG), i3 Energy (i3E) and Iconic Labs (ICON).

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Friday 13th is not a good day for the Toxic Brothers: Dave Sefton and Neil Woodford

There is some macro babble focussing on the woes of the EuroZone, why Malcolm is wrong about housebuilders and other matters. I look at Woodford Patient Capital Trust (WPCT) after yesterday evening’s shock news and ask when it breaches gearing limits and what happens next. I touch on i3 Energy (i3E) then look at the shock departure of Dave Sefton from Anglo African Oil & Gas (AAOG). He should have been fired sooner and what happens next? And what does this mean for Iconic (ICON) which I mistakenly refer to by its former name of Widecells and where Sefton still casts his malign influence as a director.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: It is not the article about the man with the 10 inch cock that matters

Warning: Do not play this bearcast in front of children or folks of a sensitive disposition. In the podcast I reflect on why the Welsh Hovel is currently like Hell on Christmas Eve. I cover the exact role of the house broker on the AIM Casino, i3 Energy (i3E), Quindell (QPP), Providence Resources (PVR), RiverFort Global (RGO) and Iconic Labs (ICON).

Iconic Labs goes 50 shades of gay in duff deal of the week/month/year

Iconic Labs (ICON) stinks for numerous reasons including those discussed HERE. No doubt I will be accused of homophobia but its latest deal, to buy the IP of Gay Star News, including the website, a website focused on events related to and concerning the global LGBTI community for just £1 is a joke.
