Good morning!

First of all, a bulk apology. I've accumulated a huge backlog of emails & other messages requiring attention. So if you're waiting for a reply from me, then please accept my apologies, I'll try to catch up over the weekend. It's been manically busy of late.

Brighton ShareSoc

This is now a monthly meeting, on the 2nd Tuesday of each month. So the next meeting is on 11 October, at the same venue, the Caxton Arms, which is very handy for Brighton mainline station.

It was great fun last time, and people came from far and wide to support the event. I really enjoy these events, and at each one I'll be giving a 30 minute talk on the most interesting small caps that I've come across in the last month.

Plus, we get to meet a small cap company each month too. This month, 1pm (LON:OPM) will be giving a presentation. This is an interesting growth company, which helps small businesses finance their asset purchases.

Please could people book a.s.a.p. if you wish to join me at the next meeting in Brighton, as the organisers need early bookings to be able to press ahead and organise the food, etc.

The situation looks extremely precarious, and I think that the company will need to do an emergency fundraising pretty soon, or end up potentially going bust. It's jammed up against the overdraft limit currently, of £15m, with covenant breaches being waived by the bank (so far). That makes it uninvestable, in my view, so I think anyone still holding this share is at large risk of further, maybe total, losses. So it's definitely one to ditch now, as too high risk, in my opinion.

Turnover, and order intake have both fallen sharply. So the…
