The Butler warns: Verditek – countdown to bailout placing or insolvency, tick tock tick tock

As his loyal butler presents a plate of a fresh kipper, rushed by the overnight train from Arbroath, in front of Tory Toff David Willetts this morning, his Lordship must be pondering seriously whether Verditek (VDTK), the company he chairs, is, itself, at serious risk of becoming a dead herring. The company has survived since its 2017 IPO by generating not a cent of revenue but by announcing numerous contracts to ramp the shares ahead of bailout placings only to admit later that the contracts have come to nowt. But what now?

Verditek – more bad news from Tory Toff Lord Willetts, cash crisis looms

Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear. That used to be the catchphrase of disgraced penny share tipster Mike Walters of Minmet, 3DM, Polly Peck, Pursuit Dynamics, etc, etc infamy. I wonder if he will be using it today as the Verditek (VDTK) dog he has promoted so aggressively has coughed up to another lack of sales warning. It means that a bailout discount placing is inevitable within the next couple of months but natch the company, chaired by Tory Toff Lord Willetts, polishes the turd.

Letter to AIM Regulation – Verditek: there must be a formal enquiry into the pre-placing deceit

Yesterday Verditek (VDTK) finally ‘fessed that its 2020 revenues would be almost nothing. That is despite it announcing on June 30 that its Italian operation was now “in production and is generating revenue” and the announcement of no less than EIGHT separate orders from 30 June onwards. All of those “orders” were announced before a bailout placing on October 6. And it is not as if this company, chaired by Tory Toff Lord Willetts, has not got extensive form in announcing big orders before placings which then turn out to be bogus. The Oxymorons at AIM Regulation could have stopped this if they had heeded my calls in letter to them about a full enquiry into past pre placing deceits going back right to the IPO but they did nothing. There now needs to be a full enquiry into the company and into Nomad WH Ireland with public censures resulting. My letter is below:

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Mark Warde Norbury and Tory Toff Lord Willetts star in Monty Python

For those who do not understand the cultural idiom, younger listeners, the reference video is below. I inject a bit of class warfare to keep working class hero and Euro loon Jonathan Price happy. In today’s show I discuss Marechale (MAC) the latest Chris Akers spoof, Verditek (VDTK), Nightcap (NGHT) and Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV)

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: I come clean on the Panettone "gift" time for Tory Toff Lord Willetts to come clean too.

Obviously the big news today is on lavender. But I move swifty on to discuss the failings of the Standard List as exposed by [email protected] Capital (SYME) in today’s shocker. Then I look at Xtract (XTR) where I confuse Panettone with Panna Cotta but flag up what is going on. Then it is Iofina (IOF), Online Blockchain (OBC) and finally Verditek (VDTK) where Tory Toff Lord Willetts needs to follow my lead and come clean ASAP.

Verditek: Oops They did it again! Another pre-placing announced contract up in smoke

In my detailed coverage of the POS AIM Company Verditek (VDTK) I have shown how in every year since its IPO it has announced contracts, ramped the shares and then having raised funds in a bailout placing or two, the contracts disappear. Sometimes it ‘fesses up, sometimes there is no ‘fess, other times I have to run articles and sheeplishly, Tory Toff Lord Willetts and his chums are forced into an RNS. Well here we go again.

BREAKING: Verditek – now tell us the truth about Optimeyes, time to come clean Tory Toff Lord Willetts

Spotting misleading and deceptive RNS statements made by technically insolvent AIM listed ramp Verditek (VDTK) is like shooting fish in a barrel. The skill is in finding one that is demonstrably true! Given that the company needs a placing pronto to avoid bankruptcy, AIM Regulation and the FCA should be investigating all its statements made via RNS to establish if ANY are true, given how many pre-placing lies I have unearthed. So here is yet another one… Optimeyes.

Letter to FCA & AIM Regulation: Suspend Verditek PLC NOW before more securities fraud committed

Maybe having a Tory grandee, Lord Willetts, as your chairman means that you are allowed to commit securities fraud with impunity on the AIM Casino? As I exposed yesterday HERE, that is most certainly what Verditek (VDTK) has been up to. Given that it is currently technically insolvent and its shares are being ramped on an industrial scale by disgraced tipster Mike Walters of 3DM, Polly Peck, Minmet, etc etc infamy and others, another placing must be imminent. I have today written to the Chocolate Teapots at the FCA and the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation asking it to try to, for once, stop fraud.
