On April 25th at the Barbican Centre in London, Blackthorn Focus is running AIM Investor Focus, a corporate access event exclusively for AIM companies and investors.

I chose to put the word 'Focus' into my company's name after a friend complained about an investor event we had attended. His case was that he'd have gotten more out of the event, if it had a sharper focus — even if that had resulted in a smaller event.

AIM Investor Focus comprises a series of presentations exclusively from AIM-listed companies. No Main Market companies. No PLUS-listed companies. Just AIM.

Wynnstay's recent AGM statement, released on March 20th, confirmed the company was on target to meet management's budgets for the first half.

Plastics Capital ( Plastics Capital (LON:PLA) ) have increased sales year-on-year for five years. The company recently announced its maiden dividend, no doubt helped by a 24% decline in the company's net debt, which we were recently told is falling ahead of expectations. Yet despite this impressive progress, the company's shares still trade at a modest rating: Plastics Capital is priced at just 6.57x their 2012 consensus earnings estimate and merely 5.75x…
