Algernon Pharmaceuticals Inc. | AGNPF Stock Message Board & Forum

RE:One Last Thing…

Thanks Algernon, I often enjoy many of your posts but definitely your tone has been extremely negative. I am not opposed to negative comments as there could be valuable information. For the record I hold a substantial position in AGN.

I quickly checked the insider tab here and I do not see Kal Malhi listed. I am assuming he does have 11% position with 15 million shares. I would like your opinion why you feel he controls the movement of the stock in either direction. If he is truly an insider he is subject to blackout periods and all insider trades are monitored and recorded yet I do not see any listed here under insiders tab.

You also indicate some for of relationship with AGN Ceo and Mr Malhi being his boss and some form of control. Can you please explain in detail what you are suggesting.

Can you also connect the dots with other companies you mention with regards to AGN or any of its management and the relevance to such?

My last comment has to do with patent protection. Are you suggesting they do not have legal rights to repurpose the drugs they are working? Why do you feel that? Do all pharmaceutical companies list their patents? Could the patent be held under a numbered company controlled by AGN. 

Your recent posts which are rather negative and warning shareholders and creating a lot of doubt do not provide back up to support your comments.

You are suggesting that readers contact the CEO and your email does not provide accurate email for Mr. Moreau. Have you contacted him and received a reply to your comments, if so please share with us.

  • On a Wednesday video conference call, Klaus Schwab, founder of the World Economic Forum, joined Bank of America CEO Brian Moynihan, and EY CEO Carmine Di Sibio to talk about the future of environmental, social, and governance standards (ESGs). 
  • Schwab said ESG standards are not a fad, and Monynihan and Di Sibio expressed hopes that more companies would adopt the newly created ESG framework. 
  • The ESG standards may become mandatory in the future, Moynihan and Di Sibio said.

On a video conference call Wednesday, Klaus Schwab, founder of the World Economic Forum said environmental, social, and governance standards (ESGs) will be the next step in driving stakeholder capitalism: the notion that a company is responsible to all its stakeholders, including its employees, customers, and the environment.

“ESGs and stakeholder capitalism are not a fad. It’s not a manifestation of business leaders to showcase their corporate social responsibility. ESGs are an integral part of business management,” Schwab said in the call hosted by Diligent Corporation. 

ESG standards are a set of criteria used to measure a company’s performance on things such as how the company is impacting the environment (like its amount of toxic emissions), how it manages relationships with its employees (does it encourage employees to volunteer), and how the company runs internally (boardroom diversity). 

The call follows a September 22 announcement by executives from the so called “Big Four” accounting firms — Deloitte, PwC, EY, and KPMG — on a new reporting framework for ESGs. A reporting framework helps companies assess their compliance to a set of metrics and report it

Ecobank Digital Series: Vanguard Conferences and Economic Forum Series Partners Ecobank to Convene Digital Financial inclusion Summit

Ecobank Digital Series: Vanguard Conferences and Economic Forum Series Partners Ecobank to Convene Digital Financial inclusion Summit

Ecobank

Ecobank Nigeria, in partnership with Vanguard Conferences and Economic Forum Series have announced that it is convening a Digital Financial inclusion Summit to drive, promote and deepen financial inclusion amongst the unbanked and underbanked population in Nigeria. Current statistics shows that 84.6 million Nigerians accounting for 47% of the population are unbanked, against mobile phone penetration which is up to 94.5%.

The Digital Financial Inclusion Summit slated for October 21st, will bring together trade groups and associations with large unbanked populations and individuals within the lower rung of the society who have not seen the need to be included in the financial sector or adopt financial services through digital platforms. This is a direct response to encourage the adoption of innovative payment solutions and digital banking services in the post covid-19 era.

Announcing the summit in Lagos, Head, Consumer Banking, Olukorede Demola-Adeniyi said the Digital Financial Inclusion Summit will be a platform to discuss the need for a comprehensive alignment of policy and regulatory frameworks among regulators like CBN, NCC, NITDA to support a sustainable digital financial inclusion growth, examine key issues and ways of advancing digital financial inclusion for women, youths and MSMEs and discuss the role of interoperability in mobile payment innovation. Further she mentioned that the role and impact of agency banking for financial inclusion growth will be x-rayed as well as the need for public and private sector investments in internet infrastructure and mobile connectivity growth in rural areas.

According to Demola-Adeniyi, the digitisation of payment and financial services has become an important economic development priority with the prospect of reaching far more people with a broad range of financial services they need, to fight poverty and build resilience. She noted that new data on mobile phone ownership and internet access show huge opportunities to

No Skiing, but Still Mountaintop Luxury at 2021 World Economic Forum Near Lucerne | World News

No Skiing, but Still Mountaintop Luxury at 2021 World Economic Forum Near Lucerne | World News

ZURICH (Reuters) – There won’t be any snow but there will still be a dramatic Swiss mountain backdrop when the world’s elite gather for the World Economic Forum (WEF) annual meeting near the city of Lucerne next year.

Buergenstock, in central Switzerland, has been chosen to host the May meeting of world political and business leaders, over Davos, the Alpine ski destination synonymous with the annual jamboree.

The coronavirus pandemic has forced the WEF to move the meeting from the resort that has hosted the high-profile event since the early 1970s but it said it aimed to return to Davos for the 2022 annual meeting.

The WEF rescheduled the 2021 annual meeting to May 18-21 as a combination of in-person and remote digital events via a network of 400 hubs around the world.

For those Wall Street bankers and Silicon Valley investors able to make it in person, Buergenstock still offers luxury hotels, fine-dining and mountain pursuits – albeit on foot rather than on skis.

“The meeting will take place as long as all conditions are in place to guarantee the health and safety of participants and the host community,” the WEF said in a statement.

The 2021 meeting will be held around the theme of “The Great Reset” to plot a path to recovery from the pandemic “and rebuild a more cohesive and sustainable society”.
