You seem extremely well informed on AIM and shorting for someone who only created a profile in Sept 2017 and who has only posted on 2 companies.... If one was cynical one would suspect you to have multiple profiles...

I don't mean to be pointed, but here's the thing... and by the way, I'm being careful with my language here... It's primarily a services company with a forward multiple of 36x earnings (based solely on AIM market IB research!). The accounts present evidence of aggressive accounting and a history of unusual related party transactions. Its track record of cash generation is poorer than I would expect, it has a surprising relationship with its auditor of 20 years, and its balance sheet looks a little stretched to me. And we are most likely in the middle of a bear market - capital markets are probably closed to new equity issues for a while. This is an AIM listed technology company with 4 months of receivables - Do some digging through the annuls of history and you will find that combination of factors to be a leading indicator of poor shareholder returns. So, yeah, given all that, I'm short. I've also done a lot of digging into its end market, and my personal view is that the opportunity set for the kdb+ language is much more smaller than perhaps some investors think. PS. A friendly tip for you: when your AIM listed investment goes through the billion dollar market cap level, wrap your head in a cold towel and rerun your analysis. It's about that level that short sellers start to take interest and they tend to be diligent in the extreme when it comes to their analysis.

I think the directors have already a large stake in this. I would prefer to see an Institution take a disclosable position or increase a stake significantly

Do you think investors will sue the auditor of Patisserie Holdings? Genuine question.

And no I do not believe many large companies are corrupt to the core. I believe they are driven obsessively by profit generation and profit growth and long may that continue. But such obsession is controlled by the rule of law and scrutiny of published accounts by global audit firms who are sued if they fail investors.

No I don't I am keeping an open mind until I hear and read the company's half year results and commentary I do not accept that companies are inherently corrupt. I believe in business ethics and standards and the scrutiny of global audit firms.

clearly share profit people have an axe to grind despite what anyone say the accounting mishap is at best odd it unlikely anything sinister would be left so easy to spot audit and finance team more probably let ball drop if it an actual issue Moorsie read fact many large companies corrupt to core team asking questions is what make thing honest either way Moorsie do you agree it takes away somewhat from earnings ?

Thanks for the advice Moorsie. It raises a question in my mind, however: If a company’s executives overtly reject basic principles of corporate governance, such as rotating ones auditor, why would you not question them?

Be careful if you are calling into question here the honesty of the directors and or the global professional services company....

Yes, they will have been signed off by KPMG Belfast, their auditor of 20 years... has anyone ever heard of the Cadbury Report?

That’s not technically true. They are yet to complete the transaction, although it has now been agreed. Still, they didn’t own 100% during any of the previous 3 years.
