QUOTE
Last September, the board of Yellow Brick Road successfully urged shareholders to reject Kiwi corporate raider Ron Brierley's 9ยข-per-share takeover offer. The wealth manager, the board comprised of TV business guru Mark Bouris, his brother Adrian and John George insisted, was worth far, far more, potentially up to 38ยข a pop.

But Yellow Brick Road hasn't traded at 9ยข-per-share since January. And on Friday, its board had no trouble issuing control of 12.3 per cent of the company to US hedge fund Magnetar for a mere 6ยข a share.

The placement, YBR told the ASX, was only being offered at a "small discount to recent traded prices", and wouldn't be subject to shareholder approval.

Despite its share price malaise, you'd expect things to be looking up for the wealth manager. Sure its loss blew out to $37.4 million in FY19, but at least the royal commission is behind it, and Magnetar is providing the lending capital for its long-mooted securitisation facility, which will finally allow Yellow Brick Road to write its own home loans.

These wins make the cheap placement all the more notable. If Yellow Brick Road was worth so much a year ago, why isn't it worth more now?
....

What steps next?.. You'd have to think any mug minor shareholder would want to run a mile.๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿƒ

Eight years since the last posting.... And the "joke" comment still relevant.
QUOTE
ASX suspension? What ASX suspension?! Yellow Brick Road's Mark Bouris has spent the week since the business failed to lodge first-half accounts doing what he does best. That is, self-promotion.

It's why they pay him so much, after all. The SME guru's Twitter feed has been incessantly urging small businesses to "join the movement". That is, his Mentored business, subscriptions for which start at $19 a month. His company's woes increasing all the while the ex-Celebrity Apprentice host preaches business advice, we can't help bearing comparison to the fire and brimstone televangelist barnstorming the southern towns where his mistresses happen to live. Do as I say, not as I do.

Meanwhile, those who've invested in Bouris' shtick more directly are preparing their brickbats. Or their sell orders. YBR shares ceased trading on Friday pending bog-standard paperwork.

The mortgage broker did confirm it will detail, in the fullness of time, a net loss and hefty goodwill impairment. Absent any real and present numbers (pending the stonkingly overdue satisfaction of GrantThornton), YBR's holding statement defies the company's recent confidence.

Back at the November AGM, Bouris said the company was "well placed to succeed, whatever the outcome of the royal commission and any subsequent regulatory changes". YBR now blames that inconsequential royal commission for the write-down. And a failure to lodge accounts by their due date is no sign of success....

Will be on the phone this week to Bells to see how much stock I can borrow in this little beauty.

If ever there was an opportunity to make a killing shorting an IPO here it is.

The prospectus is a joke.

It states that 4 acquisitions were made in the last 18 months, and those 4 acquisitions form the total revenue of the business....only one direction this one is going.

The fact that they could get this fully underwriten just goes to show how much crap a broker will push onto their clients just to earn a fee.

Kiril.
