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?

On Easter Sunday as you munch your way through vast amounts of chocolate, I shall be walking 15 miles in the Cheshire rain and snow for my latest Woodlarks training walk. Enjoy my suffering and please make a donation HERE. In today’s bearcast, a liars special, I discuss Versarien (VRS) – target price 0p, Verditek (VDTK), first stop target price 2p by June 30 and [email protected] Capital (SYME) – target price 0p.

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.

The Deliveroo (ROO) IPO has bombed. Is this 2021’s version of lastminute.com in 2001? I ask and explain why I would not be interested. Then I look at Verditek (VDTK) and Bidstack (BIDS) and try to suggest a pricing and timing for their next bailout rescue placings. Now it is off to Wrexham tip with some old tyres because I lead that sort of exciting life.

I start with news at the Welsh Hovel notably on the Ha Ha. More photos on a range of developments later. Then I have a quiz question for you before going onto detailed discussions on: Conduity Capital (CCAP) which I mistakenly call Continuity Capital throughout, St James House (SJH), Wildcat Petroleum (WCAT) and Verditek (VDTK) with an explicit come clean challenge for another fine upstanding ex Tory MP.

I hope that AIM Regulation is taking seriously the way that Verditek (VDTK) announced a series of EIGHT contract wins last summer to ramp its shares ahead of a bailout placing in October only to admit, incrementally, that almost none, if not none of the contracts had actually landed. Verditek has done this several times before and needs to be publicly admonished if it is not to commit securities fraud in this way again. But there is another matter…

I am sorry for a bad tip but I drank my own medicine and I will almost certainly average down in the morning in AEX Gold (AEXG). I explain why. Then I look at 88 Energy (88E) at Abingdon Healthcare (ABDX) where I disagree with the leading commentator in our comments section. I comment on the most expensive, shuttered, bars in London at Nightcap (NGHT), on Verditek (VDTK) and give you a taster of the next Zoetic (ZOE) bombshell.

Thank you Brokerman Dan for supportive words, you are always welcome at the Welsh Hovel and indeed my son often asks when you are coming again. But when a self confessed ex con pisses on folks, like certain shareholders in [email protected] Capital (SYME) and Zoetic (ZOE) from the moral high ground, you know such folks dwell in the moral sewers. I discuss the reaction to today’s Zoetic bombshell and what happens next. I also look at Big Dish (DISH), Agronomics (ANIC), Dev Clever (DEV), Bidstack (BIDS) and Verditek (VDTK) speculating on the bailout placing prices at 2 of those 5. Then I discuss Bacanora Lithium (BCN) where I might be tempted to have a punt.

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:

Twice in the past week, most stridently yesterday afternoon HERE, I have made it clear that Verditek (VDTK), the serial AIM sewer deceiver ramped by shamed tipster “old mother” Walters and chaired by Tory toff Lord Willetts, needed to come clean on yet another pre-placing deceit and its lack of revenues. I guess the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation were listening as this morning the company fessed up. It’s ouzo time for me!

I start with a note on why we should spare a few thoughts at 8PM tonight. I then look at Gamestop, Elon Musk, Melvin Capital and sheer insanity writ large. From there I move onto Cineworld (CINE), Verditek (VDTK) where AIM Regulation really must act and then onto events at Sabien (SNT).

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.

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.

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.

Based on what I reveal today, where do you think its cash will go? Then it is onto Verditek (VDTK), Bidstack (BIDS) and a second company run by a former Tory MP, Powerhouse Energy (PHE) where the man in charge is sleazy Tim Yeo.

I start with a few words on my preparations for tomorrow’s funeral which will mean my absence from this site for a day. Then onto the election in America where our boy is on a bit of a roll - a full analysis of recent developments is in a special podcast HERE.

I start with a few notes on preparations for Thursday’s funeral following my piece on mad Covid rules and Dad’s ceremony HERE. Then I look at Verditek (VDTK) and Versarien (VRS) where the wheels realy are coming off. Then it is onto a defence of my friend Tim Blackstone and my analysis of Metals Exploration (MTL). Finally I look, in real detail (hence the length of this podcast), at Guild Esports (GILD) which was much hy;ped by the deadwood press at its IPO a few weeks ago partly because David Beckham was investing in it. I expose why that is so utterly misleading, Becks will make a killing from this IPO but I suggest mug punters will not. This whole thing stinks.

What would you do if you were running a PLC with almost no cash and which was burning cash? It is a position I have been in and it is not a good place to be. You cut costs perhaps? Or you just do whatever is needed to raise fresh equity whatever the cost involved in doing that… And that brings me back, once again, to Verditek (VDTK), the AIM listed company that should win prizes for telling outright lies about bogus contract wins in the run up to fundraises. It has offended in this respect so many times since its August 2017 listing that on the Upper Volta Stock Exchange or any other market on this planet it would have been chucked off long ago. But this is AIM and the chairman, Lord Willetts, is a Tory Toff so the show just goes on.

Verditek (VDTK) , a company with negative net current assets and which is burning cash so is technically insolvent has today announced the publication of a research report. Natch, the pathological liars at Verditek deceive investors even with this pathetic attempt to ramp the shares ahead of a placing.

Lockdown in our part of Wales starts in just under two hours. The Mrs has already escaped to England with Joshua. I am staying here but need some supplies so must rush to get them from a store where they don’t make you wear a face nappy before the North Wales fuzz sets up roadblocks on the bridges over the River Dee. Before my Dukes of Hazard style contraband run, I discuss various conspiracy theories over Rolls Royce (RR.) and IAG (IAG). I look at the massive issues now hanging over Verditek (VDTK) as I expose its latest desperate ramping and another past lie. Finally, Dev Clever (DEV), what is going on with Asimilar (ASLR) and Mark Horrocks as its share price slides again.

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.

Of course the first order Verditek (VDTK) won in the land of high culture was way back in 2019. But that turned out to be a fake “take or pay” contract designed to ramp the shares ahead of three bailout placings. Having finally ‘fessed that it made that one up, Verditek has today announced a real order from down under. But it is tiny and will do sod all to ease the financial woes of a company that is technically insolvent, having negative net current assets and which is still burning cash.

I am told that you can get borrow in Verditek (VDTK) and that the stock is now shortable. For the avoidance of doubt I am not short, I never am since it would allow folks who own shares in frauds, engage in frauds or promote or enable them to accuse me as having a vested interest and thus compromise my status as an investigative journalist. But if you are into shorting here’s why this company is now at the slow death or quick death point.

I have now proved beyond any doubt that technically insolvent Verditek (VDTK) has misled investors grotesquely during five separate fund raises. If AIM Regulation was not staffed by such poltroons the shares would already be suspended. They may still be. So what does that say for the integrity of the man at the helm, the chairman Tory Toff Lord David Willetts?

I have today been quite busy on family matters, see HERE, which I find fascinating. I appreciate others may not! In the podcast I look at the general market meldown in the face of the Government going economy wrecking bonkers over Covid. I look at [email protected] Capital (SYME) and Avant Garde, Verditek (VDTK) and its idiot investors, Big Dish (DISH), Trainline (TRN), Bidstack (BIDS) FinnCap (FCAP) and a cracking trading statement but questionable morals and Iconic (ICON) and the perils of the sub Standard List.

I have already demonstrated HERE and HERE and HERE how AIM darling Verditek (VDTK) has deceived investors in peace time and also in wartime, i.e the run up to placing after placing after placing. Now I turn to events from August 2017 to October 2018 which did not start to come to light until June 2019 and show, with regard to the WES operation, industrial scale deception by the company, before and during a fund raise which also involved misleading investors. AIM Regulation needs to suspend these shares pending an independent investigation into every claim Verditek has ever made since the repeated nature of its deceptions is now just too great to ignore.

And now from Wales, by just 30 yards, it is my new, I hope, weekly video show. This costs 99p per episode, and you can either listen to, or watch, some sparky interviews with Chris “3 brains” Bailey on his dirty secret, the real economy why UK shares are so cheap, on gold and his 3 top picks. There is also a detailed interview with the boss of AEX Gold (AEXG) who is not really 13 years old plus I discuss a new stock I have bought into heavily and also why [email protected] Capital (SYME) has this week hoisted its biggest red flag yet, is a scam and is worth 0p.

Well actually I start with the curtain twitchers on the facebook page of the small village where I live in Wales. Boy have they excelled themselves today. What a crazy world we live in. Then it is on to Iconic (ICON) where today’s news should see the board in jail. Then [email protected] Capital (SYME), a good section on Verditek (VDTK) and finally a detailed appraisal of Caspian Sunrise (CASP) after its interims. On reflection I lied to you. This is not a podcast about three stocks worth zero. It is about 4 stocks worth zero.

There is also a detailed interview with Andrew Bell of Red Rock Resources (RRR). Its shares are 0.82p and what Bell says is ground breaking. I am on record as saying I shall eat my hat on video if the shares are not 1.26p before Christmas. I now reckon 1.65p is achievable and this is explained very clearly.

It is bad news for gender fluid, Bidstack (BIDS) owning, journalist-defaming moron Mike Turner - the countdown to the next bailout placing is underway. I crunch the numbers and speculate on what boss Lyin’ James Draper will do about it. After that I consider Verditek (VDTK) and its growing catalogue of lies and also warn Innovate UK that I am on its case as I have been alerted to another of its grant scandals. Finally I consider two companies that are desperate to be bid for but which, I suspect, will not be: Audioboom (BOOM) and Eurasia Mining (EUA).

I have already demonstrated that AIM listed Verditek (VDTK) misled investors in a material way with regard to phantom orders ahead of placings in September 2019 and March and May this year.

As a long suffering shareholder, down £30,000, I have a few tough questions. Then I discuss what gold stocks I am buying before chatting to Steve Moore, a man with whom I have worked for all bar a few weeks of his working life. He is this year 38! Frightening. I started the show with a suggestion that we all look back to the 1970s. I end with a look at corporate lying and why it is on the rise and why no-one cares but that will change. Verditek (VDTK) is a case study here. You can access the show HERE

Enough is enough. Two weeks ago, an article HERE forced Verditek (VDTK) to admit on August 12 2020 that the two big contract wins announced in 2019 had not gone through but it had raised money without telling investors of these massive setbacks. On Friday, I showed that it had actively misled investors ahead of placings in September 2019 and March 2020. Enough is enough. How many more lies have been told? I have written to the FCA & AIM Regulation asking for the shares to be suspended pending a full investigation into the company, its directors, and Nomad WH Ireland which, at best, has been asleep at the wheel.

Earlier today, I published an email showing that Verditek (VDTK) had, via its brokers, lied to investors as it tried to raise money in a placing in February/March 2020. Okay, to lie to investors once is bad enough but what if it has lied before? Might that suggest that there may be more lies out there and that the shares should be suspended while the FCA and the Oxymorons at AIM Regulation have a serious butchers? Well, as it happens, thanks to Winnileaks, I can now show below that Verditek also lied to investors as it raised money in late September 2019. Oops, two placings, two sets of lying… I sense a pattern here.

Last week I exposed how Verditek (VDTK) had misled investors in three placings by NOT informing them that previously announced contracts had not gone ahead and on Tuesday the company fessed up to this. But misleading by omission ahead of a placing is one thing. Actively lying is far worse and thanks to Winnileaks I can now demonstrate that Verditek has done that not once but at least twice.

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.

Then it is onto our major expose of securities fraud at Verditek (VDTK) today, where it seems that Old Mother Walters is again batting for the company with a bonkers market cap, no sales, which lies to investors, and which is technically insolvent. What’s not to like? Oh yes, and the company’s chairman is a former Tory MP. More red flags than at the May Day rally in Moscow.

Shares in Verditek (VDTK) have been pumped up to 18p, capitalising it at £52 million, on the back of supposed order wins. But this company is a serial liar in that regard, its finances are shot so why does anyone buy into the nonsense?
