Century Mining Members Commence 3rd Small-Cap Shareholder Revolt Via AGORACOM

Posted by AGORACOM at 9:15 AM on Tuesday, April 19th, 2011

I am very proud to announce that members of AGORACOM have once again used the power of the web to launch yet another small-cap shareholder revolt against an unfair acquisition of their company.  The Century Mining Corporation Concerned Shareholders issued this press release yesterday to officially “Question The Business Combination With White Tiger Gold Ltd.”

This is a well written, well reasoned press release that provides the market with succinct facts behind the revolt.  I highly recommend reading it.  Moreover, if you are a small-cap resource investor, you need to support this campaign and send a clear signal that predatory takeovers of your companies is a thing of the past.

SMALL CAP SHAREHOLDERS WON’T BE PUSHED AROUND ANYMORE

On September 7th 2007, I posted a story on this blog titled “The Empowerment Of Online Investors – It’s Here For Good”. In that story, I stated the following:

“What does this mean for small-cap and micro-cap CEO’s?

Online investors have almost as much power as you do when it comes to the future
of your company. Unhappy investors are no longer relegated to the vacuum of “harsh”
e-mail and letters to express their discontent. Today, investors can rally in short order
via video, blogs and online forums to challenge you at your next AGM, oust you from
your position or even elect their own slate of directors.

In fact, not only is this possible, I’ll go as far as predict it will actually happen in the
next 12-24 months
as investors make Web 2.0 a part of their daily investing lives.
I’m the biggest proponent of great small-cap and micro-companies but we all know
there are still many companies out there deserving of being the first target of an online
shareholder revolt – and I’ll be the first to applaud it.”

Within months we saw shareholders of Aurelian Resources and then Noront Resources  rise up and fight against an unfair “friendly takeover” / predatory proposed changes to control of its board respectively.  They went 1-for-2 but man did they make a lot of noise … see Aurelian Resources … see Noront Resources

APPLAUDING SHAREHOLDERS OF CENTURY MINING

I said I would be the first to applaud it, so bravo to all of you for your efforts. I want to congratulate the “Century Mining Corporation Concerned Shareholders” group for its activism efforts.  By amalgamating all shareholders for the purpose of educating, communicating, sharing and analyzing all aspects of this potential acquisition, you have given yourself the opportunity to generate greater shareholder value through:

* Rejection of this offer
* Sweetening of the current offer
* Attracting a better offer

This ordeal is long from over, so don’t give up. Continue to push for a better deal if the majority of you truly believe the White Tiger offer is insufficient ….and let AGORACOM know if there is anything further we can do to help the cause.

Best Regards,
George and the AGORACOM Team

AGORACOM Members Rally Around Fellow Member To Save Lives

Posted by AGORACOM at 8:55 AM on Friday, August 20th, 2010

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times.  I am so incredibly proud that AGORACOM Members have taken the site to levels I only dreamed about.  First, from a pure information exchange of small-cap information, you can’t find a smarter, dedicated and giving group of people.  Second, thanks to a system that is focused on attracting quality over quantity, this same group of great people have created a loving and supportive community that rises to every occasion they are called to.

As such, it shouldn’t have come as any surprise when Pam “Optionsgal” Steeves sent me a message on May 24 to say:

Good Morning My Friend. This morning as I post on the KRY board I feel compelled to include you in my thanks, as if this community had not been established I would not be realizing a very important personal goal …..

…… I am astounded this morning and feel the need to thank-you as well. If not for your community here and the connections I have made, I would not be anywhere close to realizing my dream. Agoracom folk are some of the kindest, generous and most supportive people out there.

“Personal goal” was an understatement.  I’d love to tell you the rest of the story – but I decided to give Pam an opportunity to tell you in her words below.

Pam, I want to thank-you for walking 39.3 miles for people that can not.  You are truly an inspiration to each and everyone of us. You are a champion.

Members, I want to thank-you for rallying around Pam, for being so generous and – as a result – for not letting her walk alone. Once again you were summoned.  Once again you responded.

Together, you are going to save lives.  Save …  Lives.

You have all filled my heart with insurmountable pride and I love you for that.

With respect,
George

PAM’S STORY

Agoracom Family Making A Difference….

Breast Cancer has touched many of us, our families and circle of friends, who have couragously battled this disease. We have fought hard for our own lives and those we care about. Every 3 minutes someone is diagnosed with breast cancer. Perhaps someone you love. Why are you reading about this on an investment forum? Because I want to tell you about a group of Agoracom members, just like yourself, who are making a positive difference.

Almost 18 months ago I began training to participate in the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. A two day, 39.3 mile walk that will take me through the streets, bridges and parks of NYC in October, for the purpose of raising funds for breast cancer research and providing care for those women and men who are under-insured and cannot afford to be screened or seek treatment.

When I started my fund raising campaign, I set my goal at $2,500. Thanks to the generosity of many fellow investors/friends on the KRY Agoracom hub I was quickly, almost overnight, able to exceed that goal and set my sights on $5,000. Remarkably, last week that goal was exceeded as well. Although many have encouraged me to spend these last 68 days concentrating on my physical training, I will not rest. With a hopeful heart and renewed passion, I have re-set my goal again to $7,500 and will not stop my fundraising efforts. I will turn over every stone and push for more resources until I am on that pier in NYC ready to begin the event. I am pushing harder for those who are fighting for their lives and can’t.

Agoracom was founded to bring individuals in the investment community together. A place where we can share ideas, gain knowledge, utilize resources and communicate with like minded investors. It goes beyond that my friends….way beyond that. Although my home is on the KRY board, I have frequented many hubs and have been warmly welcomed. Each hub a wonderful community of individuals, compassionate men and women, who look out for one another and care about the bigger picture…..giving back and making a positive difference. Each hub a FAMILY.

I am “IN IT TO END IT”. Alone I am limited, but together WE can make a tremendous difference. Join us my Agoracom “Family” as we take a stand against breast cancer. Please visit my site at http://www.avonwalk.org/goto/PamForLife

Thank-you,

Pam Steeves/Optionsgal

AGORACOM Members Host 2nd Annual “Ring Of Fire” Golf Tournament

Posted by AGORACOM at 4:15 PM on Thursday, August 19th, 2010

Proving once again that AGORACOM is a small-cap community like no other, a couple of AGORACOM members have taken it upon themselves to repeat their success from last year and organize the 2nd Annual ROF Golf Classic & Dinner on September 11th, 2010 (full details below).

As you can see below, this isn’t just a few guys and gals getting together to hit a few balls & throw back some brews.  No, this group has gone all out to include a buffet dinner “with a chef manned carving station for the following….. – Hip of Roast Beef (slow roasted for 10 hours)”

Moreover, there are going to be enough prizes for everyone to take home.  We were happy to contribute swag to last year’s event and will be doing so again this year.  (I personally would love to play but after suffering a herniated disc during a hockey game 4 years ago, golf is out unless I can just pitch and putt all day.)

The good news, according to the last post I saw, is that some golf spaces are still available – or you can simply join everyone for dinner afterwards.

Congrats to Stratopod, Glorieux and everyone else involved in making the event possible.

Regards,
George

A number of people have come forward with some wonderful prize donations and I thank them all for supporting the ROF Golf Classic.

Nobody will go home without a prize, including all dinner guests.

Speaking of dinner….check this out ! A superb strato-buffet dinner, with a chef manned carving station for the following…..
