Okay, okay we did notice! In response to several reader emails we had seen that Optibiotix (OPTI) had yesterday appointed Luis Gosalbez as Director of Business Development, effective immediately. we are sure that Luis is a charming chappie and his CV looks awesome but it is not even a board appointment so its no great fuss. However....

The release reads:

Luis will join the senior management team and whilst this is not the main board (PLC), Luis may take on a board position within OptiBiotix's divisional structure as these develop into separate legal entities, as announced in OptiBiotix's strategy update on 5 July 2016.

That is a tad more interesting. The word is that the first spin-off company will start the demerger process with an RNS within weeks or a couple of months at most. As to its valuation?

Listen clearly to Steve O'Hara at UK Investor Show HERE. He could not be clearer. Yet the market cap at 74p-76p is just £61 million.

You see the potential near term upside?  Perhaps interim results out on 25 August will be the platform for demerger news? The shares remain a buy at 80p or below and we expect to be selling at well over 100p this autumn.
