Thu, 14th Jan 2021 19:15

(Alliance News) - The following is a round-up of updates by London-listed companies, issued on Thursday and not separately reported by Alliance News:

----------

DWF Group PLC - Manchester-based law firm - Sets up new internal operating structure, effective from May 1. Streamlines into three global units: Legal Advisory; Mindcrest; and Connected Services. Moves from current 4 divisions: Commercial Services; Insurance Services; International; and Connected Services. "Together, the three divisions will support DWF's single Integrated Legal Management approach through which the group can seamlessly combine any number of these services to deliver bespoke solutions to its clients with greater efficiency, price certainty and transparency. This approach enables DWF to offer clients solutions that combine traditional law firm services with new, modern legal and business services relevant to today's companies and the challenges and opportunities they face," company adds.

"The yield during the charter exceeds the targets expressed in the company's prospectus dated September 25, 2018.

These results add to our portfolio of superior agronomical results, which have also been reported on sugarcane and coffee, among other cultures, reinforcing the versatility of our product and its wide application optionality. As with our other agronomical tests, these positive results will be instrumental for our commercial team in increasing our client portfolio."

----------

Iconic Labs PLC - media company - Served with a claim form from European High Growth Opportunities Securitization Fund. EHGOF has filed the claim in the High Court in London, but has yet to file particulars of claim setting out the exact nature of its claim, and therefore the company is unable to respond or comment in any detail on the claim until such time as EHGOF files the necessary documentation to evidence its alleged claim. "Notwithstanding the above, the company assumes that the claim may be being made in respect of amounts that are allegedly due to EHGOF under specific loan notes, although the claim form makes no reference to these loan notes, instead referring to agreements with EHGOF that were, against the wishes of EHGOF, unilaterally and validly terminated by the company last year," Iconic says. It adds: "The company reserves its position at this time on the merits of the alleged claim pending receipt of fully particularised particulars of claim and a full investigation of the claim."
