As shares in AIM-listed Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) again sit below that all-important 27.5p mark which, if continued for 10 trading days, will trigger a EGM to reduce the nominal value of the company’s shares, a quick trip to the Companies House website reveals the debenture paperwork (HERE) related to the company’s recently announced loan deal (with spoof 100p conversion terms) with Blackfinch as announced on 27 March (HERE). Most of it is legalese, but on page 36 we get some cracking tit-bits. Such as the planned expenditure on the Harley Street premises (some £19.14 million) as against potential resale values of between £9.44 million and £10.71 million – and that is just for the kit and fitting, not for the value of the property itself. As security (including the property) for a £3 million loan (with an option for a further £2 million) it is quite something!

The noose does appear to be tightening around AIM-listed Rurelec (RUR). It had appeared for a while that the board had managed to buy itself a little time with an extension to a previous short-term loan out to the summer of next year.

A curious filing has appeared at Companies House with regard to our dear friends at Daniel Stewart (DAN), the formerly AIM-listed company which used to be a Nomad, used to have a Nomad and which is still a Broker. Back in January a debenture in favour of the mysterious Asian outfit Epsilon appeared at Companies House: it seems that the parent company had entered into an arrangement with its largest shareholder in return for a charge over all its assets, as was covered at the time by Tom Winnifrith. Now we appear to have one covering all the assets of the only operating subsidiary.

Crisis ridden AIM-listed Rurelec confirmed on Friday that it had closed the short-term loan facility announced on 30 October, and that it had already drawn down the full amount of £600,000. The statement released says that the directors are pleased to announce this news. For “pleased” read “relieved”. But at what price?
