Peel have a duty to disclose to the company, the RNS were released in the wrong order, they had above 10% they now hold below 10%. I did ask them the obvious questions why are you holding, can be a MM and have a holding- answer - yes. I then asked it must be a good company if you are holding 10%- he laughed.

Auctus has been formed to undertake an acquisition of a target company or business. The Company's efforts in identifying a prospective target company or business will not be limited to a particular sector or geographic region. However, the Company expects to draw on the extensive experience of the Company's founders and its board in sourcing and successfully executing such transactions. The Company is targeting a significant deal; accordingly a listing on the Official List of the FCA, as opposed to a junior market, matches the future ambitions of the Company in terms of scale, quality and appreciation in shareholder value.
