From the London Stock Exchange comes news of the new date for the Phorm AGM and a results announcement:
The Company (AIM: PHRM and PHRX) will be announcing its results for the six months ended 30 June 2009 via RNS, at 7.00am (BST) on Monday 21 September 2009.
For those misguided souls who believe that people like me and the other anti DPI campaigners are Luddite tinfoil hat wearing “privacy pirates”…
There will be a conference call for analysts and investors at 8.30am (BST) on the day.
Yes folks, get your spin phresh phrom Phorm! Hear how each one of the evil privacy pirate group has written hundreds and hundreds of letters to MPs, MEPs and anyone else who will listen.
The truth is I do most of my communicating by e-mail, using post only when necessary. And I’m sure you will agree that my writing style is pretty recognisable. So it is that I write only as myself. The only hats I wear are a cricket cap in warm weather and occasionally a fedora. The tin foil stays in the kitchen.
Hear how the evil privacy pirate group has been spreading rumour and misinformation about the legal status of Webwise.
The truth is that I’ve publicly challenged Phorm to publish such an opinion (see Jamie’s Challenge To Phorm link above) and such an opinion has never been made available. The truth is that interception without a judicial warrant is illegal. The truth is that advertising schemes that are opt-in by default are illegal.
Hear how the rumours and misinformation became a smear campaign against a company merely offering an advertising service.
The truth is that there are no rumours and misinformation here. Just facts, linked to their sources. That is not a smear campaign. Digging around in someone’s past and revealing that they once complained about nappies to a manufacturer is the kind of tactic only the desperate would use in a smear campaign.
The statement also confirms the new date of the AGM:
Shareholders are also advised that the Company will hold its AGM on Monday 2 November 2009. Related documentation will be sent to shareholders in due course.
Now that the Phorm AGM date has been confirmed, here’s that list of things I think are worthy of open and honest discussion at the AGM. If I was a shareholder I would be very very unhappy that my stock value had dropped so much.
Is it too much to ask for the publication of the verified legal opinion we have been waiting for since April last year? The AGM is an ideal time to do that.
Which do you think is more likely? Phorm publishing that legal opinion or my touring South Africa with England as an opening batsman and swing bowler this winter?
Yeah, I’ve got my cricket coffin packed just in case…
