It’s simple, the PR company confirmed that any significant news would be announced and that would include first commercial sales. Some of us already knew this of course. I am not surprised that the people who didn’t know this are now looking for ways to interpret this in a way that suits their narrative.
“Makes you wonder why they so quickly did the placing at 80p to raise 8 million. They could have done it later at a higher price and we'd still have no sales but less damage to the share price. Great product, poor management.”
Really? You are criticising the inability of GDR to read into the future? Yes, I imagine in hindsight they might have done things differently.
