Alpha Growth Plc (ALGW) has finally had FCA approval of its Prospectus for the Placing that occurred 10 months ago in February 2021. The FCA is supposed to ensure that any Prospectus issued complies with the rules but it is apparent from a quick read that the Prospectus has not been properly updated throughout the document as many of the references are considerably out of date. It looks like someone at the FCA just wanted to remove the Prospectus from his or her to do list prior to the Christmas holidays rather than subject the document to appropriate and proper scrutiny or perhaps it was simply signed off after a long Christmas lunch. I cite below some examples of where the document hasn’t been properly updated.
