hoggar: Agreed, 'shut this dog down' but inept idiots like Morgan should be held responsible for gross mis-management of investors money. Lets not forget how this idiot and many CEO's like him on Aim have squandered other peoples money without penalty. Criminals are now stripped of ill-gotten assets to pay for criminal profits. Should irresponsible CEO's be treated differently?
2pablo: That 'book value' was confusing me, still is, and is an accounting term which I think represents the total value AMP shares would be worth should Motif be liquidated. In fact our shares are worth considerably more in the market. We retain 8.51% with 24,475,591 shares. These if sold @33.5p as today's were would bring in £8.2m or $10.6m. So we are well able to cover the loan Facility outstanding if we have to keep selling. As discussed previously, don't think this is the end of Amp's debts, far from it. Someone on MTFB LSE BB stated he thought AMP's selling and 'overhang' were having considerable drag on the MTFB share price Maybe that is so, in which case we are doing ourselves out of deserved money payback from a company with considerable prospects. Not sure of this effect myself because we state we are selling directly to an Institutional Investor each time, who can't be dumping them as they'd often be at a loss.
hoggar: My notes on this company suggest Morgan and Bertoldi are owed over $4million for fees and salaries. This dates back to the beginning of the year. I would guess the exorbitant fees these fat cats pay themselves will now exceed $5mil. However Morgan must be feeling some sense of guilt and embarrassment because he and Bertoldi are delaying accepting this money until all other debt is paid. One wonders if this was the cause of Bertoldi's swan song? I can hear all investors moaning as to why these fat cats should be paid one cent considering the board members financial ineptitude. Well, they are guaranteed tapered fees dependent on performance. But that performance only relates to IPO success of partner companies and a few directorship bolt ons. unfortunately, this one sided business model does not reward the small investor unless liquidity remains in the stock.
hoggar: Amp will respond as if on steroids! Not too sure about that statement. This company is so heavily in debt its total assets will not cover due payment in time. As I have posted many times over the years on this post, Morgan needs to incorporate a new business strategy. It would appear he has finally realised this fact and gone away to draw up a new business model for Amphion and save his considerable investment. Time is his enemy at the moment and the stagnant performance of current investments will not pay the monthly instalments or indeed the end of year repayments. Another restructuring is in the offering if the loan bearers want their money on time. The trouble is, Morgan’s curriculum vitae is quite frankly pathetic. His new business plan involves assisting late stage IPO businesses with advising and collecting financial investment support. Now where have we heard that before!!! That might be a nice little earner for him with the exorbitant fees he and his team will no doubt demand, but what does the investor get, debt and more debt suppressing the stock. In the fifteen years since Amphion listed he has managed the company down to junk status. Spending tens of millions of investor’s money on American patent lawyers chasing the likes of Microsoft and SAF for infringements was like the David and Goliath fairy tale. The current situation is quite dismal indeed. With only a 9.5% holding in Motif it is almost certain the next to go will be its holding in Polarean to fend off the sharks. Even if Motif suddenly gained full approval the current mounting debt will dilute and hold back the share price A better scenario would be a large Bio company buy out. This might be what Morgan and Amphion are hoping for in the coming months.
hoggar: I think now we know why the two directors suddenly vanished??? Morgan has run this company into the ground. I cannot think of any other viable assets this company can sell to stay afloat. So far this inept man has flogged off all tangible assets in all partner companies including selling Motif and kromek shares at list price. So what is left for the remaining investors here??? Not much I'm afraid. Even the remaining 10% stock Amp have in motif will not pay off the debts owed at current prices. Morgan owes investors a full explanation as to the direction ( if any )this company is going and how he intends to finance the operating costs and still raise finance for the remaining companies. The company prospectus has lead investors to believe each and all partner companies will be be worth 100mil to AMP investors??? The last sentence says it all folks.
gclark: so our share of mtfb will be reduced a little with the book building fund raising at mtfb, but it was something we were prepared for still a big investor here due to my belief in the future of mtfb, approval of Iclaprim and revaluation of mtfb soon, I think the fund raising provides more funds to mtfb to develop so has to be a good thing
hoggar: Not altogether correct. From my passed research on this company, directors have indeed loaned Amphion considerable sums, but if investors care to read the small print detail they will find the terms are extremely favourable within AIM rules. Returns of 7% upwards is a nice little earner on your investment by any standard. These loans will have to be paid along with undisclosed executive earnings. The question is, how and when are these loans to be paid? Morgan has stated many times that if funding is unavailable to support continued partner growth or too expensive, the board will have to consider pulling the plug. The prospect of even raising operational funds to continue day to day expenses looks in doubt. The company advisors and board should come clean and issue a statement clearly outlining the company standing, and future direction.
hoggar: Amphion issued the usual caveats ... "there can be no assurance as to whether or when the IPO of Polarean may be completed, or as to the actual size or final terms of the IPO". The above header is quoted from a leading online investment analyst magazine today. Sounds familiar, yep you are right. If investors in this dire company had reservations and doubts whether Amphion will indeed float Polarean before 2018 then this RNS confirms what investors have been stating on this thread for many months. The company is flat broke, and worst still, their only hope of attracting reasonable funding is currently performing like a chocolate fireguard. They were of course counting on Motif share price to be double/plus its current standing by now. This seems very unlikely until all nuts and bolts and FDA approvals are in place which may not be until Q3 next year. So will they review their last statement and not sell Motif stock? My guess is they will be forced to sell at or around the current price and take their holding below 10%
hoggar: I also think Morgan is a genuine type of guy, however I do question his methodology with gambling investor money. Like all gamblers they become convinced the next bet will win all their lost bets. It is true the directors initially bought shares at 30p but Amphions business strategy allows directors to claim a substantial salary in an advisory role on various partner boards etc. It remains to be seen how they will manage to defer the carrying debt in Jan 2018, but as suggested, the further sale of Motif shares will destroy investor confidence and the ability to attract operating finance not to mention director salaries.
escapetohome: Of Very sound mind indeed judging by current capitalist dogma. Theyve filled their own pockets to the brim thanks to foolhardy investors. Of course that was their objective, especially so , when this turned out to be a busted flush, this inspired the greed even more. Of sound minds indeed.
