Petro Matad funded for its drilling programme which should see production start next year. Watch the full video here.
Coo. I haven't had any email. Or bottles of Champagne, or Rum. They did, however, throw me in the clink after Tilly and JT had been in there. How they managed to get visiting rights so as to be able to enjoy the delights of Lil, I have no idea but I really wish that they'd cleaned up the cell before leaving it. It looked like a birthing room for calamari, or maybe a contender for the Turner prize! :-)
My credentials - my posting history. What other credentials matter? Make the most of this, Aubery. You're stretching my patience.
In your last post, you said that I had bullied dealer. I did no such thing - you'll see that when you read my posting history. I actually tried to help dealer... where were you? Oh, I remember, doing your usual trick of attacking and running.
One last go at me, Aubery, before you too are binned. Go for it. Do your worst.
Thanks for that Aubery. My credentials speak for themselves. I have consistently supported the Company, the BoD and posters who, at times, have been in distress. I also have an 'open' identity, unlike you and many others who post here.
You are a muppet. There was an example given earlier of a covert bidding war, involving BHP. That was the reason for the thread. Can I quote any more examples? Well, no, of course not because one of the funny things about 'covert' bidding wars is that they are exactly that - covert! Go back and read what I said earlier. Then, go stand in the corner of the room with your face to the wall, wearing a conical hat with a big 'D' (for Dunce) on it. Twit.
Aubery. You are a real pain in the derriere. You pop in here from time to time, make daft comments or ask silly questions and then you slope off without answering any questions put to you. In other words, you're a hit and run merchant. Here, occasionally, simply to provoke and taunt.
Earlier today, I responded at length to an assertion that you made. You said that a listed company could not engage in a covert bidding war. Yet, typically, you did not respond.
It was the same with you during suspension. Exactly the same. Have you ever actually managed to hold a conversation with anyone? The way that you behave, I rather doubt it. You're just another botfly and one of rather long standing on this BB.
For those who are unaware, Aubery is not invested. He's admitted that. He was, he said, but he is no longer. He now claims to read and post here because he has a continuing interest in the fortunes of those who remain. As if. Another sad individual.
I might have implied, you might have inferred ww. Hope you understand the difference?
You've been on LSE for three days. And you are giving me the benefit of your advice? I have always resisted binning peeps but I'm afraid that, with the best will in the world, some people just can't help themselve, even when they are given fair warning.
dealer wasn't 'venting'. He's been posting that way for a very long time. I took issue with him about it a few weeks ago and he responded saying something to the effect that it's just a BB so what does it matter? Well, I'll tell you ww, I don't want to look at this BB and see dealer with the same old, weary, whinges and whines about the vicissitudes of the SP. The only people who care about the SP, day in and day out, are those who are trading the shares. And I don't have a problem with those who are trading the shares, provided that they are not posting negatively or inconsistently, according to their trades.
Today, I tried to help dealer. I got no response, save at the last, when he came out with a load of abuse, thus revealing his true colours.
Long suffering I am but, like everyone else, I have a threshold. dealer passed that threshold. In spades. ATB
It will indeed Bumble but I rather suspect that we're going to have a continuing interest in MT, the flanks and the nine areas in the Rosgeo JV, going forward, through a JV/partnership/merger with whoever buys MT, the flanks and, possibly, Nyud.
Big Special Dividend not affected. Recurring Dividends going forward. Just watch, wait and see.
Yeah, do us all a favour dealer and take time out. Your constant commentary on the SP and all of your whingeing and whining is beginning to make you sound like one of the LTH negative posters who are trading the stock. Next negative post from you and you're in my Green Bin.
Not necessarily, Aspen. Things aren't always what they seem. It's entirely possible that shares are being bounced back and forth between parties who share a common objective.... to drive down the SP in order to dislodge shares from nervous/bored/frustrated PI's. There's absolutely nothing to stop them from doing that or, necessarily, being detected doing it. It's called manipulation and whilst some activity of that sort could fall foul of MAR, you're still left with the jurisdictional issue. The arms of the law might be long but the arms of the FCA are restricted to the UK.
Those who are invested must, as ever, have confidence in their own research and have faith and trust in the BoD. Trying times indeed but stoicism will win out. Just ignore the naysayers, even if some of them are LTH's who protest that they are not trading the stock. I just don't believe them, I'm afraid.
Travis, there could be a number of extraneous factors at play. An obvious one would be the easing of tensions between Russia and, pretty much, the rest of the world. Big changes are afoot and it's going to be essential that the leading nations of the world are singing from the same song sheet.
I'm looking forward, with eager anticipation, to the next G20 meeting and, beyond that, to the COP26 meeting shortly afterwards. There needs to be a thawing of political tensions throughout much of the developed world if the planet's ice caps' meltdown is to be arrested.
There also needs to be a global approach to enabling developing countries to produce energy without their having to emulate the Western powers whose transition from agrarian economies to industrial ones has been a major contributor to climate change.
EUA has essential raw materials that will help to save the planet. It's inevitable that they will feature in discussions, if not specifically in relation to EUA, then more generally.
Aubery, why does our being a listed company preclude there being a bidding war, in your estimation? Not all bidding wars are conducted in public.
What we have and what we are selling is of interest and affordable to a limited few, hence the FSP with non-disclosure exemptions granted by the Takeover Panel. The FSP clearly didn't result in a binding offer that was acceptable to the BoD. We are, however, progressing a proposal with a credible party but that doesn't mean that the door has been closed to those others who expressed an interest during the FSP.
I'm not saying that we are looking at new offers or proposals but we might be. The BoD has a fiduciary responsibility to obtain the best possible price for what's being sold and they cannot simply reject improved offers or proposals, made since exiting the FSP, because they were not made during the FSP.
There is no obligation on a listed company to reveal what offers or proposals it may receive unless the BoD chooses to reveal them, assuming always that they could - NDA's are bipartite, not unilateral, agreements. You must, surely, know that Aubery.
Oh dear, it looks like dealer is in meltdown. I see that you are involved in a house move. Don't underestimate the impact of the stress of that. It's reckoned to be the third most traumatic event in a person's life here in the UK, after the death of a loved one and divorce. Stress induces anxiety which causes depression. Try to relax and stop watching the SP movement all the while. Our financial wellbeing is in good hands.
Just to put one thing straight, it is not Rule 15 that is operating as the gag, along with NDA's. It's AIM Rules and it's all to do with information that must be shared and that which, in certain circumstances (such as ours), need not be shared and, because of a number of factors, cannot be shared. I'm really hoping not to have to walk anyone through it - it's complicated and it's tortuous but rest assured that we will be told what the Co can tell us just as soon as they are able. They've said this.
Buck up dealer. Switch off your terminal and go for a walk or do something that takes you away from whatever device you use to watch the SP. We may think that there's nothing happening but I'd pay a large wager that there's lots happening behind the scenes, involving lawyers and corporate masterminds. We are in good hands. ATB
How did Tigger manage to get himself banned from LSE? He couldn't possibly have been posting here as Tharisa, could he?
And where's the Tigger's Lieutenant, TheMadStork? He hasn't posted here for months, in spite of still being on LSE and having declared his first buy when the SP stood at 147p, from memory. He did say that he would be adding once the overhang was cleared... must be a major overhang, eh?
Still, it's good that the old P&D crew have left a caretaker here. Not a good idea, though, to start copy pasting Tigger's posts from over the road lest, in so doing, the proxy picks up a ban too. You should know that Ian - you've been around long enough to know.
Ah well, good luck to everyone who is invested here. Difficult to know who is and who isn't and some who, now not posting, might just be running a short. Those who do short tend to be pretty indiscriminate in my experience. No moral compass, you see. ATB
.... to the Bernard Aylward Drilling Co. Hate to agree with the detergent man but the gold drilling results are beyond bad... might as well leave it in the ground.
If there are any LTH's left here who are actually invested, rather than trading the sheet out of the shares, I do wish you well but isn't it perfectly apparent, now, that this is just a lifestyle Co? It matters not one jot whether or not they get the ML for the Lithium, it's simply not economically viable to mine it unless and until there's an in-country processing plant and that ain't going to happen any time soon. Maybe never, given the political instability of the whole of Francophone West Africa, not just Mali.
Anyway, I thought that I'd just pop in and take a look at what was going on here, having previously been invested and I wish you all well.
Ah, I understand now mac. I thought that you were referring to gmf78 as Michael. Thank you for clarifying that.
A two day window for the shares to go ex-Dividend is fine by me. Tight but doable, as the Bishop said to the Actress :-)
Anyway, I sense that I'm annoying those who want to have a good old gripe and moan so I'll say Adieu for the rest of the day and catch up with everyone tomorrow. Take care everyone.
